AMW Lead Team


ALEXANDRA WOODLIEF


Alexandra is the Owner and Lead Designer of Alexandra Madison Weddings! Alexandra started AMW in 2013 and has training and wedding experience from all over the country, from Santa Fe, NM and Los Angeles, CA to South Carolina and Georgia! Alexandra has experience in all areas of events such as venue management, catering, rentals, and of course wedding planning! Alexandra's favorite current wedding trend is highlighting the "Color of the Year" and incorporating that into design. Her favorite part of wedding day is the cake cutting! She loves how special that first moment is between the new couple. Alexandra is excited to see the new and exciting looks this team can bring to each wedding day!


PARKER COGGINS


Parker graduated from the University of SC with a Hospitality Management Degree focused in events. Parker has only ever lived in the Carolinas. She grew up in Raleigh, NC, of course moved to Columbia for school and now is back in NC specifically in Charlotte to help expand the AMW brand. Although Parker and Alex have known one another for over 5 years through UofSC ADPi chapter, her time specifically with AMW began in 2019. Parker started with us as an Associate Planner and is now one of our Leads! She comes from a background in events, private clubs, banquets/catering and golf tournaments. Favorite wedding trend is the custom champagne bottles and anything speciality monogrammed! She feels it adds an element of personalization and uniqueness on the big day. Parker is most looking forward to the fall season because of her love for outdoor weddings in the beautiful fall weather and the high energy that surrounds this busy time of year!


MARY GREGORY


Mary graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Marketing and Sport and Entertainment Management, from Fort Mill, SC. She has lived in the state of SC her entire life! She started with AMW as a marketing coordinator over a year ago and quickly merged into planning, learning all things about wedding planning. She turned her passion into a career with AMW as an Associate Planner while also working as the Marketing and HR Manager! Mary’s favorite part about being a wedding planner is the moment right before sending the client down the aisle. “It is such a rewarding moment seeing the bride so happy and knowing that we contributed to the happiness in making their day all they dreamed of and more!” She says that she is most looking forward to watching the fall team excel in their positions. "I can’t wait to see how much the women grow and to serve as a mentor for them as they learn all there is to know about the dream job of wedding planning!”


SOPHIE LARGE


Sophie graduated from UofSC in December of 2020 with a hospitality management degree and a focus in events. She’s originally from Houston, TX but now calls SC home!! She has always had a passion for events and started working in country clubs and the catering/event side. She saw AMW advertise an internship on their Instagram the summer going into my senior year and knew she had to apply. She has loved every second so far and is thrilled to continue working with AMW full time! Sophie’s favorite wedding trend is signature drinks with a matching bar sign and lounge seating. He favorite part of the wedding day is when the groom first sees the bride whether it’s down the aisle or a first look! She also LOVES first dances, she cries every time. She is SO excited to work with this fall team and watch everyone grow. Sophie can’t wait to share her passion for events and weddings with everyone and she can’t wait to see this fall team experience it all first hand.
