Parris Claytor Balazs, owner of Eventfully Chic by Parris LLC, is a certified wedding planner currently serving brides across the South Carolina midlands! Our packages include full planning + event management, partial planning + vendor coordination, day-of ceremonial direction, and hourly wedding consulting services.

Eventfully Chic by Parris is honored to have been voted the 2020 "BEST WEDDING PLANNER" in the Free Times and Post & Courier campaign, the 2021 "BEST WEDDING PLANNER" by the Columbia Living Magazine, and was a WeddingWire Couple's Choice award winner for 2021 and 2022.

Prior to becoming a certified wedding planner, Parris had nearly a decade of experience directing various events to include charitable functions, large corporate events, reunions, galas and black-tie affairs and other special occasions.

In 2018, she was awarded the opportunity to expand her event planning portfolio and turned her expertise to the wedding planning market to help couples fulfill their wedding day dreams.

Shortly thereafter, she unexpectedly became her very own first client when she said “YES!” on December 28th, 2018, securing all of her own wedding vendors within the first month of being newly engaged! She married the love of her life, Joe Balazs IV, on November 9th, 2019.

"My goal is to bring your dream wedding to life, which means working diligently from the moment you say "YES" to the moment you say "I DO!" I would be honored to bring my special touch and attention to your wedding! Let's start with a quick complimentary consultation and go from there, so you can sit back, be beautiful, enjoy your engagement, and leave the stress to the experts!"

    Exceptional

    Great to work with! I own Lake Murray Event Rentals and have worked with Parris on two weddings (one being her own). She knows how to make your special day PERFECT! I would highly recommend Parris and looking forward to working with her again soon.
