    Ten out of Ten

    I have worked with the AED both professionally and now personally, most recently while planning my own wedding that took place on 04/23/22 here in Charleston. I've had a unique perspective into their operations and relations as I myself am a vendor in the Charleston wedding industry, which is really how my relationship with them began.

    My initial professional relationship with Sarah, Sam, and Kate really made a big impression on me and set the standard high not only for those with whom I choose to work as a vendor, but also how I operate as a business owner myself. I saw from "behind the scenes" how organized, efficient, professional, and kind they all genuinely are. Based on my experiences with them as a vendor, I knew that when I got engaged, there was no other team I'd rather work with than AED.

    Throughout our entire 16 month engagement, our experience with AED (specifically Sarah Rickman) was exceptional. Sarah and the rest of AED were always responsive, patient, understanding, and extremely efficient. They have great relationships with both vendors and venues in town and have a lot of insight and experience to provide in terms of recommendations. Additionally, their classic and timeless style is so beautiful and perfect for any Charleston wedding. They all go out of their way to make every detail perfect for their brides and their families. We unfortunately had an incident in which an out-of-state invitation company sent us an incorrect order. However, Sarah and Sam really stepped up to help us fix the problem and find an alternative very quickly-- I now couldn't be happier with their recommendation and absolutely love how the invitations turned out. The invitations are one of my favorite memories of the planning process!

    All this to say, I recommend Anderson Event Design to any couple without reservation. It is so obvious that they truly love their work and if I were to do the whole process over, I'd choose Sarah and AED every time!

    The BEST Planning Team!

    Sarah and the team at Anderson Event Design are truly talented and incredible people. We were an out-of-state couple so having the right planner to work with for our big day was a high priority for us. The team checked every box for us - highly professional, well connected in the industry, a creative eye, organized, and a caring personality. Sarah coordinated the absolute best vendor team we could ask for and brought our wedding vision to life with her expert design ideas. If we faced any challenges, which are inevitable for planning any wedding, she would either quietly handle on our behalf behind the scenes or come to us with a few solutions already in mind to discuss. We trusted her wholeheartedly during the entire planning process. On the day-of, Sarah & team were on site from early morning to late at night making sure everything was handled so that we could focus on enjoying our day. We even had a last-minute chance of rain that required reworking some of the layout, and Sarah handled it effortlessly. We’ve had so many guests comment on how beautiful and fun our wedding was, which means the world to us since guest experience was important to us. We sincerely could not have pulled together the wedding of our dreams without Anderson Event Design. We would recommend any couple looking to plan a wedding in Charleston to work with this incredible planning team!!

    The Most Amazing Event Design Team

    There are really not words to describe the LOVE we have for Samantha and her team. Having an out of state wedding could be stressful but not at all with Anderson Event Design. Samantha is the most professional, kind, and creative individual. Any time we had a question, she and her team were there with an answer. Their design ideas absolutely made our wedding the dream it was! Anderson Event Design truly makes you feel like you are family and their passion for weddings and making their couples happy shines through in every detail. Our wedding was absolutely seamless and better than we could have ever hoped for. Every guest was so impressed with Samantha and her team and we are so lucky to have had them be a part of our big day. Our wedding would not have been what it was without them!
