Engaging Events far exceeded expectations
This was my first experience as mother of the bride, and my daughter suggested we look into hiring a planner. Being new to Charleston and not knowing anything about the vendors here, I agreed. I had no idea how much Caroline and Cindy would take care of, for a very reasonable price. Caroline narrowed down each various vendor to a few recommendations, so I wasn’t overwhelmed. She kept my budget and tracked when payments were due. She was quickly responsive to every call or email. She was very tuned in to our preferences and priorities. Lastly, her presence on the actual wedding day was invaluable. I didn’t have to do anything at all, except enjoy the day and our guests. She covered every detail. The whole experience with Engaging Events was incredible and worth every penny.
Caroline made our wedding planning such a breeze! When we selected Kiawah Island as our wedding location, we knew nothing about the local wedding vendors, being from out of town, and her expertise in the Charleston market was invaluable. She organized the planning in such a way that we never felt overwhelmed, giving us one or two things to work on at a time. Our meetings were always so productive and we felt more excited for our wedding after each one. The wedding weekend arrived with absolutely horrible weather for the welcome party, which was supposed to be at a mostly outdoor venue, and Caroline pivoted the event indoors at a different location that ended up being wonderful. She really saved the day. The wedding itself was truly spectacular, with Cindy’s flowers and place settings being really stunning. We so appreciate how Caroline and Taylor took care of all the logistics on our big day. It was so well run that all we had to do was get ready, show up, get married, and enjoy ourselves. Our wedding was beyond perfect and it is mostly thanks to Caroline’s fantastic work. We cannot recommend her enough!
Best Planner and Team, Period. A Perfect Wedding Experience.
Don’t even have words to express how incredible Cindy was as a wedding planner. Not just thorough, thoughtful, organized, and meticulous (she’s all that and more). but she took time and put in effort to get to know us as a couple and what we wanted for our wedding weekend, even when we couldn’t articulate it. She didn’t just have great ideas–she had solutions for how to execute them. Her energy, passion for her job. authentic connection to her clients, and endless connections to terrific vendors are unmatched and turned our wedding experience into something even greater than we expected. If you’re planning a wedding, you’d be crazy to not go with Engaging Events.
Down right exceptional!!!! A must hire!
My husband and I are newlyweds as of October 2021 and had the most amazing experience working with Engaging Events as our wedding planner and floral designers. From the very second we met Caroline and her team we felt at home and taken care of. The meticulous work and care that goes into your event is unmatched and they will help you plan the wedding of your dreams!!! Our wedding day was the absolute most perfect day of our lives all thanks to them. They take all the stress off of you and you’re left the just enjoy the day as bride and groom. They are true masters at their craft!!
The BEST Coordinator in Charleston
I can not express enough how amazing Engaging Events was to work with for my Wedding in October, 2021! We did a full service coordination and they did not miss a single thing. During the planning process, as the bride I was asked by multiple people how I was feeling while planning and if I was stressed. My answer every time was no, the process was seamless for us, even as an out of state bride. That is all credited to Engaging Events amazing team. It was truly the most magical day, with the most amazing vendors. Highly recommend, you will not regret it!
Choose Engaging Events – You won’t be disappointed
Caroline was an absolute DREAM wedding coordinator. Choosing to have a destination wedding 7 hours away from home was a bit unnerving. But the first time I spoke with Caroline, she won my heart. Even when we thought we might not be able to work together (due to availability), she still worked hard to secure a location for me! From the beginning, Caroline was organized, thoughtful, and creative. She has a wealth of knowledge, and often provided alternatives when we needed fresh perspective. She provided amazing vendors for us to choose from as well. Each vendor we spoke with raved about Caroline, and they were 100% correct! She was with us every step of the way, and even when plans fell through she would jump into high gear to made sure the issue we resolved quickly. It’s cliché, but our wedding day was literally the BEST DAY EVER – and that would never have happed without Caroline. While I only saw Caroline a few times on the big day, she was working furioulsly behind the scenes to make sure everything went smoothly. She even made sure the newlyweds were able to eat at their own wedding! Many of my guests commented on how wonderful she was, and how hard she worked. My maid of honor was astounded at how Caroline was able to direct the chaos with love, compassion and a smile!
Cindy was great as well – her vision for flowers is exquisite. She took a few thoughts about our life, a few pictures from Pinterest and executed a beautiful display for our flowers!
I could go on forever – but trust me, you will not regret choosing Engaging Events!
Cindy, Caroline and their team were absolutely great and crucial to our wedding looking so beautiful and running smoothly. Caroline was always quick to respond back to communications. Caroline also helped with our stationary and welcome boxes and they turned out amazing, highly recommend letting the team help coordinate some of your wedding needs if you aren’t using them as a full time planner. The flowers Cindy picked out were just stunning and better than I ever imagined. I also highly recommend seeing a sample of the linens and florals before the wedding day. I was hesitant but it turned out to be so worth it, as we were able to make changes. The team was running around the entire day of the wedding making sure everything was running on time and checking in on the Bride and Groom. Overall great experience, and the wedding was just perfect!
I can’t even tell you how amazing Cindy and her team are! We live in Boston, but were getting married in Charleston and Cindy made planning a wedding from out of state a breeze. After talking to her on the phone when we were looking for a planner we knew she was going to be amazing. Her and her team are so kind, professional, experienced, and a dream to work with. They totally understood our vision and our wedding was unbelievably beautiful and perfect – I’m still in awe of how everything turned out! I procrastinate and am extremely indecisive, but Cindy kept me on track during all of the wedding planning. She was so helpful in deciding on details and knew exactly what recommendations to make. Cindy has so much experience and she didn’t miss a detail anywhere. I was so thankful for her and her team during our wedding weekend because my husband and I did not have to worry about a thing which allowed us to just enjoy the weekend with our friends and family. They even delivered welcome boxes to guests’ AirBnB’s if they were not staying in the hotel blocks! So many of our guests told us that our wedding was the best/most beautiful wedding they had been to and that is truly all thanks to Cindy and her team. We are so happy we worked with Engaging Events and can’t recommend them enough!
We could not recommend Cindy and her team more! She was so helpful throughout the whole process. She was especially helpful for the small details which I would have missed. The day of the wedding could not have been smoother and I know that was a large part because of Cindy’s hard work! Excellent communication as well.
Best planners in Charleston
We hired Caroline Bean at Engaging Events after having changed our original wedding planner due because we had to postpone our original wedding date because of Covid. I have experience working with another Charleston-based planner and in the process, I’ve interviewed close to a dozen planners in the area. Engaging Events (EE), in my opinion, are THE best. I highly recommend working with Caroline. She is so organized and thinks of absolutely everything. My original planner basically sent us a PDF with recommended vendors and told me to chose some. She also always first suggested the most expensive vendors (bands, etc). Caroline with EE never did that. She worked with me to choose vendors and made helpful suggestions based on price and style. EE does their own flowers in house, which is actually amazing. They give you a great rate on florals and you don’t have to worry about interviewing and finding a florist you like. My original florist for the 2020 wedding quoted us over double what we ended up paying for our 2021 wedding with EE. And the flowers were so perfect. I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
EE worked with us to design a beautiful theme for the wedding and table design. It came out even better than I had imagined. They thought of every detail.
On the day-of, they were so helpful and made sure that everything went accordingly to plan. I didn’t have to worry because I knew they were on top of everything.
Honestly, having worked with a more expensive and less competent planner in the past, I’m actually grateful that our wedding was postponed due to Covid. Thanks to our postponement, we ended up working with Engaging Events, and our wedding turned out to be better than I could have imagined AND we saved money in the process. They are really outstanding – go with Caroline at Engaging Events!!
