Calder Clark

Owner & Creative Director, Calder Clark

Named a top planner by Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Southern Living, as well as one of the best planners in the country by Martha Stewart Weddings, Calder Clark has garnered a devoted following for her exquisite weddings and seamless logistics. Calder infuses events with her trademark Southern flair and warmth, developing a sensory experience by layering lush florals, nuanced colors, dressmaker details, and ambient lighting throughout her parties.

Nearly two decades of event design have established Clark and her firm as classicists. “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”, she says. “A curator’s approach, an editor’s eye, and a near-reverence for the smallest details are the hallmarks of great design.” The best parties are intricate behind the scenes, but effortless in their rollout: “ . . . leaving guests to wonder just how such a night came to be.”

From offices in Charleston, South Carolina and Raleigh, North Carolina, the Calder Clark team plans exclusive destination affairs all over the globe. Her work has been featured regularly in numerous publications such as Veranda, Town & Country, Coastal Living, Southern Living, and Elle Decor. Clark is frequently tapped for expert advice by the Wall Street Journal and is a regular contributor to Flower Magazine and Real Simple. Beyond the complexities of a bustling professional life, Calder is quite simply a wife and mother who loves to entertain with little notice, for zero reason, and with 100% joy.
