Hi everyone! I am the proud owner, lead planner, and designer for Charming Carolina Events and Weddings, a Certified Wedding Planner through The Bridal Society, and a North Carolina girl, through and through, who believes Southern charm goes a long way.

After graduating with my MEd and starting a career as an elementary teacher, I soon realized I had a true love and passion for the weddings and event industry. As a serious organizer and planner, I know that creating one-a-kind moments suits my meticulous and outgoing personality. I love to craft the details that make every celebration a unique experience, and I live for the hug and 'thank you' at the end of each event. It makes my planner's heart skip a beat!

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 great online payment tool that makes it easy!

How does payment work? DO I have to pay for everything up front?


Typically, we work with a minimum budget of $40,000 for a wedding. For an entire wedding, including venue, planner, photographer, florals, dress, stationery, catering, etc., on average, our clients spend around $350 and up per guest.

This does not include more intimate celebrations. Please reach out to us directly for more details.  

Is there a minimum budget you work with?


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!

will you work with vendors we select, or only those on your preferred list?


On the day of your event, you will definitely have yours truly. An assistant planner may be needed depending on the size and layout of your venue and your final guest count. 

Do you bring assistants with you?


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.

My venue has a coordinator. should i still book You?


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!
