Where do I even begin?! Carrie Darling and her team made our dream wedding a reality. From day one, she was a consummate professional. She answered every single question I had (and there were a lot!), and she had the most amazing and creative ideas. A destination wedding is so tough to plan, and Carrie made it seem like an absolute breeze. With only a few inspo pics, she was able to create the EXACT decor vibe that we wanted, and I was completely blown away at how beautiful our ceremony and reception spaces looked.
Carrie also made sure that our day was executed flawlessly. She ensured that we, our families and wedding party were all relaxed and knew exactly what was going on. When I threw her a curve ball and wanted to change something at the last minute, she effortlessly made sure that it happened.
I could not recommend Carrie and her team enough. Every aspect of her service was exceptional.
Carrie made all of our dreams come true. Her attention to detail, creativity, work ethic, patience and drive made our day truly amazing. There aren't enough words to thank Carrie and her team! We even received compliments from our vendors about how great it is to work with Carrie! Our wedding day was stress-free - Carrie handled everything and allowed us to just relax and be in the moment.
Carrie planned the most beautiful wedding for my daughter. More than we could ever have imagined. Magical. Very elegant but fun. It could not have been more perfect. She is very detail oriented and just takes care of everything. She is so sweet and does everything she can to keep the process stress-free. Absolutely the best in the Naples/Marco area.
Carrie is the best event planner I have ever worked with. Her professionalism and attention to detail is fantastic!! With Carrie at the helm, my daughter's wedding went flawlessly!! I couldn't have done it without her!!! Thank you Carrie for such a wonderful job!!
We hired Carrie to oversee planning for our wedding on 9/27/15 on Marco Island. She guided us through the entire process of planning from venue selection (we would not have found such a beautiful place to hold our wedding without Carrie!) to decoration ideas (including custom built centerpieces) to florals/setup and finally, to event rentals (including a surprise ice cream truck and limo departure service). Carrie brought her knowledge, intuition, experience and high taste level to every aspect of planning!
A key reason we hired Carrie was that she had connections and strong relationships with other vendors in the area. As we mentioned earlier, we would have no idea how to even go about searching let alone deciding on the final venue spot (I can't tell you how many of our friends/family commented on how unique a venue we had) This provided us with a sense of trust in all decisions as she had previously worked with the vendors we chose and had positive experiences with each. All of the vendors she recommended were tailored to our style and budget specifications.
Above all else, Carrie is friendly, passionate and truly cares about your event as much as you do. As we all know, our own wedding is the MOST important thing to us, but it is hard to find others who find it as important as you do! Carrie plans your wedding as if it were her own, making sure every detail is taken care of in order to make the event seamless. She is always there to run an idea by or talk things out. On the day of, everything is taken care of so all you have to do is relax and get married. Thanks to Carrie, our wedding was absolutely perfect!
I cannot even put into words how amazing Carrie Darling and her team are. From the very beginning, Carrie was so responsive and professional, and I never was once worried or nervous about my wedding. I knew Carrie had everything under control. I had so many ideas, and Carrie brought them all to life. Being in the wedding industry, I was very hard to please, but Carrie exceeded every one of my expectations and I could not have been happier.
Carrie can customize to your needs and ensure that you are getting exactly what you need. I was completely stress free on my wedding day knowing that I had Carrie. If you don't think that you need a planner, you do! No one can do what Carrie does, and it is so worth it. My wedding on 9/13/15 was absolutely perfect and it was all because of Carrie.
Carrie Darling at Carrie Darling Events is an amazing wedding planner/coordinator! She made my wedding more beautiful then I could have ever imagined. I worked with her for over 2 years in planning my wedding and she was always punctual, helpful, suggestive, and understanding. I had multiple guests at my wedding tell me that they cannot believe how smoothly everything ran and how beautiful it was. Of course, I had to give all the credit to Carrie! I would not change one thing about my wedding! I would recommend anyone getting married in southwest Florida to hire Carrie to help with their wedding! She succeeded beyond my expectations!
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! I think that sums it up. Our decor was so perfect and exactly as we had envisioned it. Carrie took all of our must haves and made them reality. Even though we didn't use Carrie for coordination she was more than happy to answer any questions I had. I will definitely be referring her to everyone!
Carrie Darling Events is the absolute BEST. Carrie and Matt made my fairy tale wedding a reality. Carrie went above and beyond to make my wedding day everything I could have imagined and MORE. I can honestly say my wedding day was perfect because of Carrie Darling and all of her expertise! I highly recommend Carrie Darling Events as your wedding planner for your wedding!!
As a mother of the bride from New York who was planning a long-distance wedding in Marco Island, it was a blessing to have Carrie as my "angel in the wings" to help plan my daughter's dream wedding. Her expertise and calm and professional demeanor helped to make my daughter's fairy tale wedding a reality. Knowing that Carrie was both behind the scenes and by my side gave me the peace of mind that every mother of the bride should enjoy on the day of her daughter's wedding. Carrie and her husband Matt provided the lighting and set the stage that literally took our breath away. They allowed us to experience the evening of a lifetime and gave us the opportunity to focus on creating the memories of a lifetime. If you are looking for a team that will be by your side to create your perfect vision, look no further! Thank you, Carrie and Matt, for being there. We will never forget our daughter's magical wedding!

At first, I wasn’t sure I wanted to hire a wedding planner because, I thought it would be over my budget. But, I am so glad I found Carrie Darling. From our first phone conversation, I knew I had to hire her for my wedding. She’s fabulous! I don’t know how I would have got through the day without her. Carrie was very flexible in creating a custom package for my needs. Part of my package included event design of the room including florals, décor & custom pieces based on my chosen theme, sea glass. My proposal looked great and I was so excited to see it come to life. I work in events for a living and I’ve seen a lot of weddings so, I had really high expectations to begin with. When the big day finally arrived, the décor and flowers blew me away! All Carries designs exceeded my expectations. Her vision and creativity is amazing! All my guests were really wowed. In addition to her creativity, Carrie is so organized, detail oriented and professional. I didn’t have to worry about a thing because, I knew Carrie had it covered. Choosing Carrie Darling Events was the best Wedding decision I made.
I’m struggling for words to describe how absolutely AMAZING Carrie Darling and her team are. It was hand down the best money I spent on our wedding. She ensured every detail was perfect. Even with last minute venue changes due to crazy winds, the wedding and reception were seamless. Thank you for the most perfect and stress-free day!
Carrie Darling was simply amazing. She came up with imaginative designs and worked within our budget to create the perfect dream wedding. She also has an amazing list of contacts that gave us confidence in hiring the various vendors. I don't know how she did it, but she radiated a sense of calm throughout the entire process and reassured us that everything would be perfect. And it was!! I would whole-heartedly recommend
Carrie Darling for any event.
I knew right away that Carrie Darling Events would be the perfect fit for my husband and I when planning our wedding from across the country. Carrie adds such a unique and creative touch to every event she does. She had to balance many different personalities and always addressed each situation with patience and understanding. She put me at ease many times when I thought I was in "wedding crisis" and we ended up with a more magical evening than I ever could have imagined. She helped me fine tune my ideas and really listened to what I had envisioned to make my wedding dream a reality. She also has the patience of a saint...A trait that comes in handy when you need someone to reassure you that everything is handled in the months, weeks and days leading up to your big day. The only downside to having her as your wedding coordinator, is that when all is said and done, your going to miss having an excuse to call, chat and plan your big day with your new friend!
I highly recommend Carrie. She was very accommodating to our needs. She was responsive, had great insight, and really made the planning process easy. The day of the wedding was stress free, thanks to all her pre-planning and attention to detail. If I had known any better, I would have hired her to plan the entire wedding!
