a little bit about us...

Socialite Events is a professional wedding planning service based in Durham, NC. Owner and head planner April Pyatt specializes in creating exquisite events while alleviating the stress of coordinating for her clients. April is a master at combining her technical skills with creativity to bring matrimonial dreams to life.

 

April began her career in the event industry while working for a wedding planner in South Carolina. While learning invaluable skills needed for the business, she decided to open her own company, and in 2008, established Socialite Events. She has since developed her firm and curated a team of professional experts within the industry.

 

April has devised a five-step system that she applies to wedding planning in order to simplify and organize the process. With this method, you are able to keep track of your vendors, timelines, design, and more. April and her team will strive to make the planning experience fun and enjoyable for you and your future spouse.

 

With several packages available from full-service to DIY, this company is sure to have the ideal plan for you. The Concierge, their complete wedding planning service, aligns perfectly with their five-step process to create a beautiful event that’s uniquely designed for you. They also offer partial and day-of planning, as well as expert advice for those who would like to manage their event themselves. If there is something specific you are looking for, April and her team are happy to accommodate special requests.
