Courtney Drake

Hello Beautiful and/or Handsome! Thanks for stopping by to learn more about the Drake Social team.  I started Drake Social with a passion for creating beautiful events with seamless execution. I'm inspired by each couples love story and seeing their vision come to life. Wedding planning can be intimidating at first but once you find your perfect planner it's everything you dreamed of and more. 

A little more about me. 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 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 Masters from Georgia Tech in Construction Management. I love traveling and finding new beautiful locations to dream up the perfect wedding.

Traci Davis

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.

Finding the perfect wedding coordinator can be overwhelming, but as soon as I met Courtney, I knew that Drake Social had to be there to keep me sane on my big day. Courtney helped me realize that not only was I ahead of the game and much more in control than I thought, but I was also falling madly in love with wedding planning. I was worried that I would have a void to fill once the wedding was over. Luckily, I never had to experience those post-wedding blues because I joined Drake Social as an associate coordinator almost as soon as I returned from my honeymoon!

In my free time, I love travelling, reading, and spending time at my parents’ lake house. I am also an avid sports fan, so it’s hardly a coincidence that I met my husband, Brad, at a tailgate for a Falcon’s game. We were inseparable from that day forward, and we married six years later! 


Macie Vance

I’m a senior at Kennesaw State University, majoring in Public Relations and expecting to graduate May 2018. I am currently the Employer Relations and Event Planning Intern at Kennesaw State. I’m responsible for planning all of the University’s career events, as well as recruit employers to attend our events.

I first found my passion for wedding planning when I was my sister’s maid-of-honor and planned her entire wedding. It was during her wedding day, when I was able to see all of the hard work come to life, that I realized my desire to seek wedding planning as a profession. I fell in love with Drake Social and its purpose from the day I met Courtney. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to make a bride’s dreams come to life as a wedding planner with Drake Social.

I enjoy spending time outside and enjoying nature. I’m also passionate about fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. 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.
