Whitney Abbott, Owner & Designer

My journey into wedding and event planning began with a love of fonts and color palettes while designing wedding invitations and working with brides at Papaya Papers in Cornelius, NC. During my 11 year term as the Bridal Consultant, I became invested in helping my brides with their adventure to plan their dream wedding. Thus, Whitney Abbott Events was born. My boutique services cater to couples of every stage of planning, from inspiration and design to complete wedding day execution.  I pride myself on attention to details, creating a personal experience and a super organized wedding day timeline.

Born and raised in Charlotte, NC, I met my husband, Corey, while attending UNCC and in 2015, we planted our roots in Mint Hill with our two dogs, Layla, my sweet black lab and Boomer, our tennis ball-obsessed border collie. Inspired by textures, nature and my southern roots, you can often find me browsing local antique stores, taste-testing new restaurants and spending my weekends outside. I'm a happy soul that will convince any crowd to get down to the Cupid Shuffle and I rarely meet a stranger.  ‘Bless Your Heart’ is a common staple in my southern vocabulary, I send a LOT of snail mail, and have an intense sweet tooth that is balanced by a love of fitness.

Nothing can compare to the day you get married and I'm excited to be a part of it!
