Social Butterfly Events is a company based on passion. I look at potential clients as my outlet for my passion. Planning weddings and events allows me to work with incredible clients who are looking to have unique personalized event. Before starting this company I spent years getting to know the best team in town for each category so that I could build my company around these recommendations. The key to a flawless party is bringing together the finest vendors to carry out that plan. Having the team that believes in the vision elevates the event from a great party to an unforgettable experience. The staff at SBE works with every couple with this goal in mind.
Name: Charyl Holmes
Where You Call Home: Wilmington, NC has been my home for the past ten years. I am originally from Lockport, NY but the southern draw of my fiancé’s voice has kept me here.
Things you’d write home to your Momma about: We are proud to say we are going to have our first feature in The Knot Magazine for the December issue. We have a perfect rating on WeddingWire thanks to all of our clients rave reviews. We are a new company and are working on sharing our work on a statewide and national level. Stay tuned to see our work featured on blogs and in magazines!
Location/Coverage: We are located in Wilmington, NC but work throughout the southeast coast on NC. This doesn’t mean we aren’t willing to expand our horizons!
Favorite Part of The Wedding: My favorite part of the wedding is standing back and watching the bride and groom enjoy the day that we have created for them. I have such a sense of pride when I see a year of planning and brainstorming execute flawlessly. I cry at every wedding because I am sad to see these amazing clients leave my life.
Best Piece of Advice: Enjoy this moment in your life. Having an event planner allows couples to enjoy the experience of being engaged. So many times couples get wrapped up in the details of the day and forget what the day is about.
Pie Bar or Red Velvet Cake: Cake Cake Cake!! I am in love with cake and I don’t discriminate against cake. Almond, Pound, Red Velvet, Chocolate, Strawberry all have a special place in my heart and that doesn’t even cover the fillings and frosting. All time favorite had to be the Armadillo cake made from red velvet that I had recently for my bridal shower. Yup just like the one from Steel Magnolias!
Succulents or Flowers: Flowers have this remarkable ability to fill a room with an intoxicating smell that draws people into the room. I am a girly girl when it comes to flowers. I want the flowers to be a beautiful romantic expression of the overall design of the day. Some of my favorites include gardenias, anemones, peonies and tulips. One of my favorite parts of the wedding!
