Weddings. Workshop. Warehouse.
We are storytellers, problem solvers, and dream makers, working to create Versatile, Original and Memorable Designs – Inspired by You!
Carrie Darling Events® is a Wedding and Event Planning Company, based in Naples, Florida. We Love the Beach and the Mountains so we are honored to plan Weddings and Events in Southwest Florida (Marco Island, Sanibel, Captiva, Naples, Fort Myers) year round and North Carolina during select months.
Our services include Full Service Wedding and Event Planning, Wedding Day-Of Coordination, and Event Design. We create seamless decor proposals, complete with custom-built decor pieces from our workshop that match your style and overall aestheic. Pieces that are not only beautiful, but serve a function. If you are hosting an outdoor reception with a candy buffet,why wouldn’t you need an LED display box to add lighting for guests to see what they are scooping into those adorable take-out boxes?
We welcome Weddings of any size. We have done intimate Weddings of 10 guests under a dining canopy on the beach, and we have done wall to wall ballroom events of 300 guests or more! Our 30‘x60’ warehouse of decor items we have accumulated over the years also helps us accessorize our events.
Put simply, we adore what we do, and revel in the moment when it all comes together after a year of planning. In providing specialized attention, we only take on one Wedding a weekend, with a limited number of events a year.
Meet “The Darlings”
We are not making it up, “Darling” is our real last name! Carrie puts the pen to paper, and Matt makes sparks fly in our workshop.
Since 80% of the events we plan are with couples planning Destination Weddings, we empathize with you – WE HAVE BEEN THERE! We planned our own destination Wedding in 2010 in Asheville, NC. We hired a talented Day-Of Coordinator, so we could kick up our heels an enjoy every minute of our special day! Sidenote: Matt built a
rounded, white booth for our Sweetheart Table that we had to bring up in a trailer!
We are dedicated, passionate and dreamers at heart. We definitely like to incorporate a touch of whimsy into our designs. Every wedding should be different, which is why we like to get to know your story too. It just might inspire something!
We LOVE to throw a
Good Party… so here’s
to 10 Years in Business!
Since we get amazing SUNSETS here in Southwest Florida, most of our services are focused on Wedding Planning and Design. We also offer Special Event Planning for other occasions including Rehearsal/Welcome Parties, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, “Will You Marry Me Dinners”, Engagement Parties, Milestone Birthday Parties, Anniversaries, Holiday Parties and any other reason to celebrate! We also been contacted for custom built pieces for venues or specialty rentals (depending on our event schedule). As creatives, we are open to additional styling opportunities. Just ask!
