Absolutely amazing start to finish. She should charge 10x more for her services

The services that Addie and Dogwood Gatherings provide is the steal of the century. So reasonably priced for ALL that they do.

Addie herself is a delightful person and so wonderful to work with. I was a pretty apathetic bride without much of a knack for design and decor. She went above and beyond to cover my blindspots and make our wedding beautiful - all along the way intently listening to what we wanted and our budget.

Her recommendations and connections all over town for vendors makes her invaluable. She knows seemingly everyone in the industry here in Raleigh that made everything a breeze (some of whom even gave us discounts because we were working with her).

Dogwoods inventory of decor also saved us a small fortune. That is yet another added perk of working with them.

I cannot recommend Addie, her husband Mike, and this company enough. They are SO much more than "coordinators" -- they are there to help with anything and are just really great people.

Addie is Amazing!!

We met Addie at our Venue’s open house and thought she would be excellent for our wedding. She was so quick to respond to our questions and gave great direction as far as where to look for vendors and get quotes for us. The day of our wedding Addie and her husband did an excellent job setting up our venue, making sure our vendors were on time, kept our timeline running smoothly, and just overall was wonderful to work with!! Do yourself a favor and hire Addie!!

Addie is highly recommended, please book her for all of your events!

Addie planned a beautiful ceremony for my sister. It was literally the best day of her life. Addie was professional, attentive, and had great communication throughout the entire process. Thank you so much!
