About Our Work

C & D Event Planning & Design was formed in 2012 by Carlyn Tribble and Darnelle Cadet. We shared a passion for event planning and a dream to manage our own business.

We created C & D to focus on every aspect of special events, from project and budget management to vendor and venue coordination. We specialize in the planning and management of weddings, corporate and social events.

From weddings to special events, our team has the experience and resources to plan and design an outstanding event to meet your vision.

I’m a 2007 graduate of the University of Florida (Go Gators!) with over nine years of experience in events ranging from small social events to operations for major sporting events.

My professional journey began in 2005 as an events intern with the Orange Bowl. It was there that I learned to push the envelope beyond just planning functions and focus my energy on designing experiences. Those lessons stayed with me through stops at the University of Central Florida (coordinating events for the athletics development office) and Florida Citrus Sports (planning and managing events around the Capital One Bowl and Champs Sports Bowl). Eventually I returned to my native South Florida and the Orange Bowl, where I have planned major public events like galas and luncheons and coordinated team logistics and operations for games, including the 2013 BCS National Championship Game.

I first tried my hand at planning weddings in 2010 and have averaged at least two per year ever since, with ranging from small ceremonies right around the corner to “destination” affairs that took me out to the west coast.

With each event I find inspiration in providing fresh and fun affairs for clients to celebrate life’s most remarkable moments. Though I specialize in weddings, social events, corporate luncheons and major sporting event operations, each new event is a unique challenge and I take pride in executing your vision.

My favorite point of the event is seeing the client’s satisfaction with a smile.

I am a true romantic at heart that loves “Love” and finds any reason to plan a fabulous affair! Creating memorable moments is what I live for. While in school at the University of Central Florida I found every reason to throw a party and celebrate my friends!

With over seven years of project management, marketing and event management experience, including weddings, social events, corporate luncheons and nonprofit events. I look forward to learning new “tricks of the trade” in the event industry. I have a true passion for planning and understand the detailed nature of the Event Planning Business.

No matter how grand an occasion or intimate a gathering, I love inspiring my clients to indulge in the celebration of their dreams! Your event should be catered to reflect your signature point of view. Remember planning your wedding or any event should be a fun experience that is engaging for all those involved. I believe in less stress for my clients, because it’s my job to handle that.
