Courtney Drake

I started Drake Social with a passion for creating beautiful events that push the boundaries of southern style. I’ve always appreciated classic elegance but am driven to add edge and flare onto traditional designs. My inspiration comes from traveling to Europe and the west coast. Staying open minded to new cultures, traditions and styles ensures uniqueness within each wedding.

I’m an Atlanta native living in Decatur with my husband and little fur baby, Daisy (by little, I mean 75 lb American Bulldog). I love animals and would have a farm full of rescue pit bulls if I could. I have a diverse background that includes interior design, construction management, finance and project management. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Interior Design and later picked up a Master’s from Georgia Tech in Construction Management.

I realized my passion for wedding planning as I was planning my own wedding with Drake Social. I love the logistical side of planning and seeing everything come together on the wedding day! My favorite wedding style is romantic industrial. There’s just something about transforming a modern industrial space into a dreamy wedding that gives my creative mind so much satisfaction! I’m an avid sports fan, so it’s hardly a coincidence that I met my husband, Brad, at a tailgate for a Falcon’s game.

I grew up in the Atlanta area, and I went to college at the University of Georgia where I majored in Special Education. I also have a Master’s degree in Special Education from West Virginia University. I have been teaching students with intellectual disabilities for the past 10 years. Patience, organization, and attention to detail are just a few of the strengths that I bring from the classroom to the wedding planning world.

I first found my passion for wedding planning when I planned my sister’s wedding. It was during her wedding day, when I was able to see all our hard work come to life and I knew this was the industry for me. My style is versatile, but hobo chic comes naturally. I enjoy spending time outside and enjoying nature. My adventurous personality finds delight in traveling and seeing the beauty that lies in other parts of the world. I have an outgoing personality, and absolutely love creating new friendships.

I graduated from Kennesaw State University in 2018 with a degree in Public Relations. I am currently interning at KSU and am responsible for planning all of the University’s career events, as well as recruit employers to attend our events.

Incredible...

Not enough words to express how I feel about the quality of service, communication and finished product. I would recommend Drake Social for all of your wedding coordination/planning needs!! Courtney is more than just a planner... she’s a friend wanting to make your dreams come alive.”

It was even better...

than I could have ever imagined, and during the whole process she made sure to point us to what was most important - the celebration of marriage! We left every meeting and phone call refreshed and excited about the decisions that were being made because we knew she truly cared about our wedding day."
