At Coco Red Events, our goal is to take care of the details so that you and your guests can relax and enjoy everything. Bringing your vision to life is what we thrive on!

We're a family-owned and operated company. Colette, or "Coco," started our company in 2012. Since then, we've worked with many clients - budgets big and small. We love what we do and we love collaborating with our clients to create exceptional weddings and events.
Although we are based in Atlanta, Georgia, our team has executed events with excellence all over the country. Each person on our team has a specific strength–from environment design to logistics to building sets and crafting props–we'll work together to make your wedding or event the one that every one talks about for years to come.
Colette is the owner and creative director for Coco Red Events. Born and raised in Atlanta, she loves creating unforgettable events in the city she loves. Prior to launching into the wedding industry, Colette produced events for a non-profit organization in Alpharetta, Georgia for 18 years. As a Certified Wedding and Event Planner, she loves the entire process of creating an individual experience for each couple, from the first consultation of dreaming what their wedding can be to the send-off at the end of their Big Day. Colette loves diving into the story of couples and discovering ways to share that story with their guests.
Colette lives in North Atlanta with her husband, Mark of 34 years. She has two beautiful daughters, Kristi and Jessica, a great son-in-law, J.R. and 4 grand-dogs.
