Meagan Culkin got her start in the events industry 15 years ago in catering and banquet management. Before going full time in her own business, she worked at several different venues over the years, and eventually began consulting for new venues who were struggling to market to their ideal clientele. What started as a one woman operation 11 years ago, has now grown to a team of 17 planners, designers, bartenders, and event assistants in both NC and VA. When she’s not planning weddings, Meagan enjoys traveling, cuddling with her three dogs, and filming Tik Tok videos when she should probably be answering emails.
