vis a vis.

I'm Sharron Mabry owner and event director of CIPE Planning.

As a professional woman that is highly in love with style and details, I found myself converged at each event I would attend whether it was social or corporate of the minute details and overall organization of the affair. As I begin to plan my own affairs, thanks to many family and friends, I came to realize a special event doesn't have to be expensive to be considered stylish and elegant. With a professional background in project management coupled with a BA degree in Management Information Systems I saw my future in the event planning industry clearly. I know I have found my passion. Spurred by my dream to start my own business, I decided that the time was now to provide affordable event planning services for everyone else that loves panache, details and affordability. My promise to you is to listen with creativity and a keen sense of style, creating an experience that is everything imaginable….

I will provide services filled with honesty and integrity that will produce a forever infectious event!


  • I thought you were amazing! I couldn't have asked for better help. You were involved at just the right level I was looking for. I got lots of help, but I didn't feel like I wasn't participating in my own event. J. Taylor- Raleigh NC
  • I used Color It Purple Event Planning to organize one of the most important weekends for me. I hired Sharron to plan my engagement to my long time fiancé. I was highly impress with all the detailed work she put into the weekend. Sharron arranged an unforgettable weekend in Washington DC and suggested many ideas I would have never thought of. She was able to get tickets to The Color Purple, arrange for a our transportation and lodging. There was a limo waiting at the hotel to transport us from the hotel to the show. After the show she scheduled dinner reservations at a wonderful restaurant. During dinner I actually asked my fiancé to marry me. Sharron was even able to locate a favorite bakery I had seen on TV and arranged to have them deliver the cake to the restaurant with "Marry Me" on the cake. There where flowers and champagne waiting back at the hotel upon our return. She was able to do all of the above and stay within my budget. She really made sure I stayed focus on the plans to ensure my day went stress free! I have no complaints. Sharron took care of every detail. I look forward to her planning our wedding next year and pray her business will be successful. N. Kale- Holly Springs NC
