Hi there! I'm Ashley, and I am the owner, lead planner, and designer of Charming Carolina Events and Weddings. My love affair for all things planning, design, and organization began several years ago while planning events for family and friend gatherings. That drive and enthusiasm quickly landed me into the wedding profession!
With almost a decade of experience in the weddings and events profession and having executed 150+ successful weddings and social events, my passion for this industry and connecting with others runs deep. I like the challenge of creating authentic and meaningful celebrations that conceptualize my clients' personalities, family traditions, and distinctive tastes. As a serious organizer, I know that creating one-a-kind moments suits my meticulous and outgoing personality. I live for the hug and 'thank you' at the end of each event knowing my couples have been spoiled and well taken care of. It makes my planner's heart skip a beat!
Let's start this journey together!

All packages require a 50% non-refundable deposit in order to secure your date and begin the actual planning process. The remaining 50% can be broken into two payments: the second payment 12 weeks before your event and the final payment 4 weeks before your event. We use a secure online payment tool that makes it easy!
For an entire wedding, including venue, planner, photographer, florals, dress, stationery, catering, etc., on average, our clients spend around $450 and up per guest.
This does not include more intimate celebrations. Please reach out to us directly for more details.
We prefer to work with vendors from our Preferred Vendors List because we know that they offer quality service and are highly reputable; however, we are not against working with vendors that are not on our list. We just need to know who your vendors are and/or who you are thinking about hiring so we can give you honest feedback. We want the best of the best for your day!
This depends on the size and logistical scope of your wedding, as well as final design plans, and venue access policies/restrictions. On average, our on site team consists of 2-5 people, but each celebration is different.
Charming Carolina works exclusively for you, while a venue coordinator works for the venue. We are in charge of assisting you in finalizing details and coordinating your big day. We not only manage vendors and set out your personal touches, but we make sure the entire production of your event runs smoothly. Most importantly, our role is to have an eye on every moving piece including the venue, to ensure the day is seamless.
We are honest, detail-oriented, and have a strong work ethic which makes Charming Carolina Events and Weddings a planning powerhouse! At CC, we care deeply about providing you peace of mind on the day of your event or wedding. In being relationship driven, we don’t just focus on your event - we focus on YOU!
