Erin McCauley - Lead Wedding Coordinator & Owner

Born and raised in Central Illinois, I’ve proudly called North Carolina home since 2008. In addition to being a small business owner, wife, and step-mom, I’m a trademark paralegal, a loyal IU Alumna and Basketball Fan, Die Hard Cubs Fan, and avid traveler who enjoys yoga and paddle boarding. My favorite part of planning my own wedding at my alma mater was working out the logistics and creating an experience our guests will never forget, which is what I want to do for you, too! I can’t wait to help you have an unforgettable wedding experience!

Jessica Collins - Lead Wedding Coordinator

Hey y’all! I’m a southern girl from the small town of Youngsville, North Carolina. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and I’m currently working on my Masters in Business at Liberty University. Wedding Planning has always been a passion of mine, and it is very important to me to make your dream wedding come to life! I’ve been married for 3+ years, and I wish Chestnut & Vine had planned my wedding so that I could have relaxed and had a stress free day. I am a mom to two perfect little boys and enjoy spending any free time with them. I always enjoy traveling, girls’ trips, and doing anything outdoors. I look forward to working with you!

Kayleigh Creech - Day-of Wedding Coordinator

Hi Y’all! I’ve lived in North Carolina my entire life and can’t get enough of this great state! I grew up in good ol’ New Bern (birthplace of Pepsi!) and attended Appalachian State University where I received my degree in Graphic Design. I love being creative and solving problems which makes being a wedding coordinator very rewarding. I really enjoy seeing how people celebrate their love through different cultures, styles and traditions. I am so happy to help on your special day, whether it be an extra hand to help bustle a dress or teach your guests how to dance the wobble, I’m your girl! When I’m not being creative I enjoy exploring the local breweries, swimming, hiking, camping or just being outdoors.
