    Daughter's Wedding

    Holly was the wedding planner for my daughter's wedding. Hiring Holly was the best decision my daughter and her fiance could have made! They gave Holly their budget, ideas, likes & dislikes, what was important to them, and not so important. She recommended vendors, venues, and all that goes into planning a wedding. She provided a rehearsal & wedding day timeline for the bridal party, which was incredibly helpful! Holly respected their wishes, worked within the parameters given, and the final result was a beautiful wedding and reception exactly the way our daughter and fiance wanted, and without unwanted surprises! Even at the end of the reception, I thought I was going to have to pack up and load all the personal items, but I did not have to. Holly had already done it all and loaded it all into our car! We cannot thank her enough for all she did for each of us! I highly recommend A Charleston Event! Holly is professional, personable, and affordable! A must have for any event!

    I have been a driver for many of the events with "A Charleston Event". Holly is a dynamite planner. Every event I've helped with was professional and all I heard from the wedding party's and guests over the years was how it was the best wedding they have ever been to or a part of. I've driven for numerous weddings over the years and the ones that Holly has been in charge of were the best organized and orchestrated. Just #1 in my book. Thanks for the opportunity to drive for all of these couples on the most important day of their lives.
