Meet the Owner and Lead Coordinator, Erin McCauley

A recent “do it yourself” bride with over 15 years of wedding and event planning experience, Erin resides in Wake Forest, NC with her loving husband, Jason, and two spirited step-daughters.  She earned her BA in Telecommunications and Masters in Arts Administration from Indiana University with a focus on event management, and, as a paralegal, Erin has extensive experience reviewing and explaining vendor contracts.  Her organizational skills, attention to detail, and enthusiasm for all-things weddings are evident in the guidance and support that she gives to her clients.  Erin’s ability to creatively problem solve and quickly adapt to any given situation allow her to identify the “little things” that make her couples’ weddings unique to them and unforgettable to their guests.  Erin is also honored to be an associate planner for The Sutherland, one of The Triangle’s most sought after wedding venues.

The Story Behind Chestnut & Vine

Owner and founder, Erin McCauley, is proud to be from a family that welcomes everyone with open arms, does not differentiate between blood relatives and in-laws, and even considers their cousins’ cousins to be members of their extended family. Their love and respect for one another stems from the example set forth by Erin’s grandparents, Nellie and Clifford, who were happily married for 67 years.

Erin’s favorite part of being a wedding coordinator is getting to witness the foundation of support that families build around the bride and groom. Hence, it seemed fitting for her to name her company in honor of the place where her family’s foundation began… her grandparents’ loving, rural, Midwestern home located on the corner of Chestnut & Vine.
