EVENT PLANNING & DESIGN
Founded in 2006, Soirées is an established wedding and event planning company in the Chattanooga area. Owner Casey Reese began her event planning career at the young age of 16, when she was asked to shadow a wedding planner and subsequently fell in love with every aspect of the job. “As a wedding planner, families are entrusting me to create the most memorable and perfect day imaginable,” Reese says. “I love getting to work with clients and bring their vision to life!”
Depending on their preference, brides can hire Soirées for full-service, month-of, or day-of wedding planning. The Soirées team is well-versed in everything from timelines and seating charts to etiquette guidelines, vendor management, and wedding day necessities. No matter the package they choose, brides can rest assured that no detail will go unnoticed. Soirées also offers wedding design and invitation and enclosures design to truly deliver a stress-free, personalized experience.
“Since we pride ourselves on being a full-service wedding planning company, we will assist or completely plan every aspect of a wedding from the first event, which is typically a rehearsal dinner or welcome party, to the post-wedding brunch,” Reese explains. “There’s no event too large or small for us to handle.”
Initial consultations and planning meetings leading up to the event help make the big day fun for all. Reese says, “We really get to know our clients and their families as we see every aspect of the wedding and reception come together. Since most vendors only handle one part of the day, we’re lucky to oversee all of those details and spend more time with the bride and groom than any other vendor.”
- Trust your vendors! You hired them for a reason, so sit back and let them do the work to ensure your day is executed flawlessly.
- Remember to take a few minutes to yourself before your ceremony and just breathe.
- Prepare! I always send my brides an “Items to Bring” list so they have everything in one designated place, from the wedding bands to their honeymoon luggage, ready to make the day a stress-free success.
