Hey, y’all!  My name is Randi, and I’m a Midwestern born Southerner.  I am a wedding coordinator through and through.

I graduated from University of Georgia with a degree in History, and immediately went off track and began working as a corporate trainer.  I then moved onto web content management.  But it didn’t take long for me to land back at my passion…weddings and events.  I started Carry Your Heart Events after coordinating several weddings and feeling one thing in my heart – every single woman deserves a beautiful and stress-free wedding.  Every single mother deserves to spend her daughter’s wedding day focused on her family, and not on the table numbers or the band tip.  A daddy needs to prepare himself for that walk down the aisle with his baby girl on his arm, not toting decorative windows up and down stairs.  And a bride…well, she deserves the world and her new husband is about to give it to her.  So here I am and I am in LOVE with what I do.

 My motto is love what you love, and I do…I don’t try to fit into trends.  I love what I love, and it makes me happy.  You should, too.

Seeing the first dance and the father/daughter dance makes me cry…every.single.time.  The love during those two moments just overwhelms me.  But don’t worry, I bring my own tissues.

I am a mama and a wife.  My husband and my three daughters light my world and give me my strength.  My husband is our family rock and my daughters are a constant source of laughter.

I love pimento cheese, coffee, wine, dessert, thrift store shopping, crafting days with my friends, and going to the park!

Weddings are personal for me.  Every single bride becomes part of my family and my heart, and her wedding day is incredibly special for me.

Currently serving North Carolina – Burlington, Mebane, Chapel Hill, Durham, Greensboro, and Raleigh!
