Chauncey will make your dreams come true!
I can safely say booking Chauncey and Bouquets and Bowties was one of THE BEST WEDDING DECISIONS I made!! The entire team is absolutely wonderful, but Chauncey will just knock your socks off. I am extremely type A. I wanted everything to be perfect. Chauncey made it all better than I even could have envisioned. I also felt so relaxed during the entire experience. My friends around me planning weddings were constantly stressed and freaking out. I was insanely calm and loved wedding planning due to Chauncey. Chauncey also managed and worked with me incredibly well. I have been dreaming of my wedding since I was 5 years old. I have more wedding pins on Pinterest than I should admit. If you say do you want A, B, or C, I will answer that I want all of that. I have extremely expensive taste, but was on a strict budget. My dream wedding had unreachable expectations, but Chauncey somehow easily made it happen and with a smile. My wedding still feels like a dream and we stayed completely on budget thanks to Chauncey. Her vendor connections are out of this world. Chauncey got me 4 different desserts and a 3 tiered cake for my budget. I had my DREAM photographer and videographer. I had a completely open bar for dirt cheap. The lighting and decorations were breathtaking. My floral arrangements were swoon worthy. Everything was absolute perfection. The best part was that Chauncey supported my dream from the first moment I met her. The day of the wedding was a complete dream! People always say brides get nervous/cold feet/etc. I have never been more calm in my entire life and that's all thanks to Chauncey. I purposefully shut the window drapes and just let Chauncey do her thing. When I finally looked, it was like all my childhood dreams were coming true. Everything looked PERFECT!! She had thought of every single little detail. I had brought a bunch of random decorations that I liked but didn't have a place for. She incorporated them all in better than I ever could have. I know I'm biased, but my wedding was STUNNING and that was all because of Chauncey. My wedding colors were light pink and mint. It would have been easy to make that look tacky. She somehow made it look like a southern belle's dream. The vendors she recommended were AMAZING! Each company she suggested was unbelievable and made my venue look breathtaking. I still have people telling me my wedding looked like something in a bridal magazine. That was all Chauncey and her team at Bouquets and Bowties!! After the ceremony was when their genius once again showed through. Everyone says "make sure to eat on your wedding day". I thought that was silly, but without Chauncey I would have starved. After the pictures, she pulled my new husband and I aside for 10 minutes to let us soak in the moment. She had all of our hors d'oeuvres waiting for us. Those 10 minutes to eat and just be the two of us was worth it's weight in gold. Later on in the night when we were so busy greeting people, she pulled us aside and had food waiting for us. She also had Travis bringing us our favorite drinks all night with water in between each drink. These seem like easy things, but I would have been a starving, drunken mess if it wasn't for her. When my shoes were hurting my feet, she literally gave me a pair of her shoes. All of that shows her true dedication and passion for her job. Chauncey and Bouquets and Bowties made all of my dreams come true. Go BOOK THEM RIGHT NOW so your dreams come true too!

"We can make that happen" and "Let me take care of that for you" seemed to be Chauncey's favorite phrases.
My daughter, Jessica, lives in New York, and I live in Alabama so planning a wedding in Charleston was something of a challenge. Chauncey and her team worked with us to choose vendors, create a timeline, and work within a budget. Chauncey organized a day in Charleston of tastings for us to choose a caterer and interview a jazz band. Jessica and Chase had definite ideas about what they wanted so they made most of the decisions, but I know they relied on Chauncey’s advice throughout the year of planning. Jessica often said, “I’ll ask Chauncey” when I had questions about some aspect of the wedding.
Weddings are expensive and can be very stressful. On the day of the wedding, Chauncey and her team took all the worry out of the details so I was able to spend the day enjoying the experience with my daughter, friends, and family. I was so pleased that we had someone there who was saying, “Let me take care of that for you” or “I can make that happen.”

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! I can't say enough nice things abut Chauncey and her team!! After getting engaged I knew that we would need a planner for the entire year and change we were engaged. After reading such amaing reviews about bouquets and bowties I set up a meeting with Chauncey. From the moment I picked up the phone, I already knew she was it. She took over an hour to answer any quesions I had and made me feel so comfrtable about the process. She was so awesome to work with. She was always 10 steps ahead of me in the process and made sure we were on schedule with everything. She gave great recommendations on what vendors to look at and went over every single contract thoroughly before we signed. Our wedding day went so smoothly and if anything started to go sideways she fixed it immediateky. Her team was also so structured and paid attention to ever detail. My groom and I always had everything we needed at all times. Our drinks were always full and thanks to travis, I always had my lip stick ready to re-apply. Chauncey took our vision and brought it to life. Our venue looked gorgoeous and captured our personalities perfectly thanks to the bouquets and bowties team. Bouquets and Bowties is 100 percent the team to take care of your wedding plannning needs.
