By Design

Amanda Blair by Design is a boutique event and design company located in Apex, NC focused on bringing fresh, local, and creative energy to every space.

Meet Amanda

I am Amanda, the owner and creative soul behind Amanda Blair by Design, the wife of my highschool sweetheart and puppy-mom to the most adorable 5 lb. maltipoo. By design means with intention, and I am blessed to be intentionally designing a life that I love. 

In design, I pursue a style of effortlessness, or focused intentionality, that allows the complex to be made simple, and the extravagant to be made elegant. When form and function are woven together seamlessly, you leave space for authentic moments.

My dream is to help you create an experience that will last beyond your wedding day through meaningful details and thoughtful planning. 


Meet the team

As younger sister to Amanda, I've been a part of her team since birth. A teacher by trade, I bring consistency, fresh ideas, and an enthusiasm for people to each ABBD project. I am the behind the scenes cheerleader, HR, and love to rock out weddings with the team. I look forward to being a part of your story!

Lauren Watters
The Brains + Assistant Planner

There is no denying our genes, Amanda is often called my mini-me. Having worked in Admin for 25+ years, I am detail driven, and love swapping hats and being creative on event days!   A people pleaser at heart, you'll often find me working behind the scenes to make your family feel extra loved and celebrated!

The abbd team 

Heather Lawson
The Go-to-Gal + Lead Planner

For years I have been my friends go-to-gal for events, and in 2019 I acted on that love for planning, and joined the ABBD team. I believe in attention to detail, celebrating individuality, and nothing makes me happier than seeing someone’s dreams come to life on their big day! Your special day should be one you will always remember and I look forward to being a part of that!

At Amanda Blair by Design we specialize in the styling and coordination of weddings, events, and home renovation projects. 

Coco Chanel said it best, simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance. 

We look forward to creating a space that is simply you.
