Wedding Planner to the Stars

When Eva Amurri, daughter of actor Susan Sarandon, married Kyle Martino in Charleston, S.C., earlier this month, their black-tie reception was the work of Washington and Lee alumna Calder Britt Clark, of the Class of 1999.

Calder’s company, Calder Clark Designs, was cited in the People magazine article about the Amurri-Martino wedding. It’s the latest publicity that the company has received for its work in Charleston.

In addition to the People magazine mention, Calder was quoted last month in the Los Angeles Times, which did a feature on October weddings that included images from a Halloween wedding she planned.

Calder started her design work in Washington, D.C., where she worked with Design Cuisine and, according to the bio on her company website, planned such events as the 2001 inaugural luncheon, the Kennedy Center Honors, a Rockefeller-Carnegie wedding, and the Bloomberg News/White House Correspondents’ Dinner after-party.

She moved to Charleston and opened Blue Moon Events in 2006. It eventually became Calder Clark Designs, which plans a “limited number of exclusive weddings and events annually.” You can keep up with Calder’s work on her blog.
