Southern Team

Jill & Chip Cole, Owners

Chip and Jill Cole started Southern Events to meet the demands of Williamson county’s growing community of families and businesses who had occasions to celebrate. Their business began in their garage and has grown in tandem with other local companies, building the relationships they now enjoy in Middle Tennessee’s event planning community. The Coles employ nearly fifty full and part-time staff and are deeply committed to their customers, clients and their families.

The Coles work together, contributing their unique skills to make Southern Events successful. Jill’s years of experience as an event planner allows her to handle the creative and client facing aspect of the business,  while Chip’s project management background makes him the perfect head of logistics. When they’re not planning events, you’ll find the Coles on the lake fishing and boating with their young sons and spending cherished time with family and friends.
