Amy Plant-Perdue is Plume's owner and lead coordinator and stylist. She is a southern girl, born and raised in central North Carolina. She loves all-things vintage, thanks to her mom, who is an avid antique hunter. She lives in a historic home, built in 1911, with her amazing husband and precious four-year-old boy in a sweet small town outside of Raleigh.
She has loved weddings and events since she was just a little girl. Her favorite magazine has always been Martha Stewart Weddings. In fact, even at ten years old, she was asking for the magazine for every birthday, in every Easter basket, and in every Christmas stocking. Before Pinterest, a girl had to post-it her favorite pictures or dog-ear her favorite pages! She still have her collection and refers to it occasionally. She loves to see how weddings have changed in so many ways, yet how the principals of design are timeless.
Her earliest memories of flowers and their beauty are of a huge blue hydrangea bush that grew outside her grandparents' back door on their farm. Blue hydrangeas are still one of her favorite flowers because they remind her of her grandma and papa and the love they had for each other and for their family. In fact, their relationship is the foundation of her beliefs about love and marriage. Her papa was everything a husband should be; he loved her grandma with a love Amy believes everyone deserves to find and one she loves seeing over and over again in her couples. She is reminded of him every time she watches a wedding ceremony and hears the couple's vows. She tries to keep love at the center of all of the weddings she helps create with our clients.
In and just after college, she worked in a bridal shop and for a catering company, beginning her experience in the wedding world. She officially started planning weddings after her own and after years of teaching high school English. Teaching was wonderful practice in the quick thinking, problem solving, and organizational skills required of wedding planning. Leaving education was the hardest decision she has ever made, but she knew it was time for me to pursue this other passion. In 2016, she began working with flowers and added floral design to the Plume Events services. Floral design has quickly become one of her favorite aspects of wedding design and planning.
She is passionate about building friendships with our clients and helping them design and create a meaningful and memorable event. She can't wait to meet you and to chat with you about all your ideas!
After being engaged for almost a year, without making any firm wedding decisions, I stumbled upon Plume Events. After meeting with Amy, and discussing options with my mom and fiancé, we decided that if there was going to be a wedding I needed to hire someone. After hiring Amy, the planning process was smooth sailing. She walked me through every step of the planning process, arranged and attended every vendor meeting, and kept me on a budget. I wanted someone who would narrow down my options and guide me in the right direction. Planning and decision-making are not my strong suit, I needed someone that would take the lead and only need my input on major decisions. I had full faith in Amy’s vision, and could not have dreamed of a more perfect wedding. I knew the general idea of what items were going to be used (tables and chairs, flowers, etc.), but I had no idea how she was going to bring it all together, and I could not have dreamed of anything more! She was even able to find a way to incorporate all of the, sometime outlandish, request we had for various aspects of our wedding. Everything was perfect, and it certainly would not have been nearly as beautiful if it were not for Amy’s attention to detail and her knowledge of all things wedding. Amy will definitely be planning every big event for my family for years to come.
I want to say thank you to Amy Plant-Perdue for being such a truly professional and organized presence throughout my daughter’s wedding. When hiring a wedding planner, you don’t realize what a life saver and money saver you are getting. In my case, as most mothers of the bride out there, you want your little girl to have a wedding of her dreams. However, the cost to accomplish this is a big issue for most of us. Amy was always there and in her polite, professional manner, kept guiding us (ok me) back to where we needed to be to accomplish our goals while still maintaining a sight of what we had set as our budget.
The other ultimate value of her as my daughter’s wedding planner was that not only could I enjoy the wedding planning process but my daughter could turn over any problem that occurred and let that worry go. Amy always came through with the solution to every situation and handled it without a misstep. She helped maintain a sense of calm by handling the details of everything and allowed us to truly enjoy the experience.
She was there from beginning to end of the process, and we could not have been happier with the results. This mother of the bride recommends that the first expense in your daughter or son’s wedding budget be hiring Amy as your wedding planner…
