North Carolina luxury wedding planner Shaunda Eggleston

E’MAGINE 15 Years!!!

Our E'MAGINE Events & Co team can hardly believe it's been fifteen years since Shaunda officially launched her business.   Slow and Steady In the beginning, she had a vision for the business name and knew enough to register the name right away. From there, she took an online wedding planning course and read everything she could get her hands on. When you first start

  Growing up in a large home didn’t allow much of anything called “me time” - so whenever I see that my mother was about to leave the house and it didn’t matter where she was going, I would scream loudly “I wanna go, please can I?” (smile). I’m not sure if it was the fact that I was getting out

There’s No Place Like Home For Weddings

Ok, THAT is probably the last thing you’d expect our E’MAGINE Events & Co team to say, especially in 2020! But the truth is that home might just be the best place right now for your wedding.

Up, Up and Away: Balloon Decor

Our E'MAGINE Events & Co team loves balloon decor. Balloon sculptures are just too cute! They are a great way to add big pops of fun, color, and texture to any wedding or event.

Pretty much they are smaller weddings, most under fifty people, where it’s all about family, friends, luxury and pampering your wedding guests. We’re already doing Micro Weddings and Intimate Gatherings When we saw this,
