Hi! I'm Devon McNeill, the owner and
Meet Cute Event Planning!
I decided to start Meet Cute Event Planning because I truly love people and beautiful things; events are the perfect marriage of the two! I am a wedding lover, people investor, and I enjoy creating one of a kind events to celebrate life's big moments. I have also been a manager at a downtown Nashville venue, The Cordelle for about 5 years now which has given me invaluable vendor connections and experience! I pull inspiration from the many weddings and corporate events I am able to see and play a small part in. Each week I work alongside The Cordelle and other venues in town so I am afforded an abundance of up to date work experience with local vendors (Caterer, Florist, Furniture Rental Companies, Lighting, Bands, and DJ's). As Nashville grows so does the need to know who you can trust with your special events and who is capable of the execution. I specialize in helping people with little to no experience navigate through the do's and don'ts of party planning but I also welcome partnerships of other industry professionals.
Why "Meet Cute"?
A Meet Cute is the Hollywood screenwriters' name for when a future romantic couple meets in a way that is considered adorable, entertaining, or amusing.
I hope to cultivate a memorable experience no matter what the occasion is!
(And yes... obviously I love the movie, The Holiday for those of you who made the connection!)
I was raised right outside of Atlanta and ventured to Nashville to attend Belmont University where I graduated with my Bachelors of Arts in Business Management with a concentration in Music Business and a minor in Studio Production. I have always had a flair for the creative and have used similar skills throughout my professional endeavors.
Upon graduation I was able to work within my chosen field with artists such as Dolly Parton and Eric Church. With my music industry and production background I felt confident in planning large scale events as well as the more intimate gatherings. I pride myself in being detail oriented and logistically minded all the while knowing the importance of not letting any circumstance derail the experience. The show must go on!
