Meet Carly

Thank you so much for visiting Elizabeth Carlisle Events! I'm Carly, your lead planner and owner of ECE! I've lived in Birmingham my whole life and have loved serving brides here and in surrounding areas. 

A fun fact about me: I am married the love of my life and my best friend, John Neil Stanback, who happens to be the brother of one of my past brides. We met because of her wedding and fell madly in love. We live in Bluff Park with our two dogs Ellie & Boone. 

My favorite part of each wedding day is opening the doors to the ceremony and watching my brides walk down the aisle to their groom. At that moment, all the planning, coordinating, and organizing of the day feels as if it has all come together. At Elizabeth Carlisle Events we pride ourselves on giving each bride, groom and their families a stress free, and fully catered to experience. We go into every wedding day with the goal of allowing you to live out our motto: “Enjoying your day to the fullest!”

I would love to get to know you, so reach out and tell me about your wedding day!

Meet Kate

Hi! I am Kate Foster, associate planner at Elizabeth Carlisle Events. I have been assisting Carly for 2 years and have planned a couple of weddings on my own over the years. I'm excited to help make your special day a breeze. I specialize in Month Of Coordination and it's a joy to get to serve couples in the last few weeks before the wedding day. 

A few facts about me: I love traveling and learning new things. I am one of 7 kids and have lots of nephews and nieces that I adore. 

I'm so excited to work hard at making your day stress free and everything you imagined! 



Megan & Justin

We can’t say enough about how amazing Carly and her team are! After meeting several couples on our honeymoon who told horror stories of their wedding day, Justin and I felt so grateful that we couldn’t relate to them one bit because our wedding day was PERFECT all thanks to Elizabeth Carlisle Events! Carly is organized, so sweet, and makes the days leading up to the wedding so stress free!

Chaney & Max

Carly and her team were beyond amazing at our wedding. I didn’t have to worry about a thing the entire day! She is so full of joy and loves being prepared to make your special day one where you are without any concerns! We would hire her again if we could!
