About Us

Addie Thompson and her husband Michael own and operate Dogwood Gatherings and Events. It all started in 2013 when Addie started planning a friends wedding. Once that was planned and over she didn’t want to stop there. With a degree in Hospitality her love for wedding planning grew and Dogwood Gatherings and Events blossomed into a Full Service Wedding Planning and Event Management Service. Her husband later joined in the fun as her Officiant and Partner in 2016 and with over 200 events behind them they look forward to making your event special!


“We both want to take a moment to say thank you to all our previous and future couples for allowing us to share in the best day of your life! Events are always better when we are together.”

Wedding days can get crazy. With caterers, florists, photographers, videographers, make-up artists, hair stylists and more buzzing in and out, it's easy to lose focus of the most important things: family, friends, dancing, and love. Dogwood Gatherings and Events Month-of Coordination or Event Management specializes in managing and communicating with vendors and venues, and day-of scheduling, as well as coordination of ceremonies and receptions in North Carolina, Charleston, and Beyond. Let us take away the stress of the happiest day of your life so you can laugh with your wedding party, have moments alone with your family, and enjoy your first day as a married couple.
