When we first started planning we thought we could do it all ourselves… and we were so wrong! The deeper you get into wedding planning, the more you realize how many details and decisions go into making the best day ever, well, the best day ever! After coming to this realization (probably over a bottle of wine), my fiancé & I decided to hire a planner.
When I first met with Carly we immediately hit it off. She was so personable, very knowledgeable & you could tell she was SO passionate about her job. I didn't even need to talk to anyone else after meeting with her-- I knew I wanted her to be the one to help plan our day. I can say without a doubt that was one of the best decisions we made throughout the planning process.
I had a strong vision and knew what I wanted but our planner, Carly, really helped execute it. Nick and I both knew we wanted to still be hands on with aspects of our wedding and Carly 100% let us do that! She not only did a wonderful job of understanding our vision, but she provided knowledgeable tips and advice anytime we were feeling unsure or overwhelmed.
Carly Abernathy was such an integral part of our wedding and it truly showed with how smooth our wedding day went. Nick and I were able to fully enjoy our day without a single worry. Our entire day was organized, flowed well, and everything went off without a hitch thanks to Carly! One special moment from our wedding day was us seeing our reception set up for the first time with our photographers and videographers while everyone was at cocktail hour. I was immediately brought to tears because Carly had executed everything flawlessly and it was everything we had envisioned and more.
If you're not sure if a wedding planner or partial planner is worth it, stop thinking & hire Carly immediately! I promise you won't regret it!!!

After lots of research in the first month of our engagement, I found Carly’s information as a wedding planner near Winston-Salem where we planned to get married (I live in Charlotte). From the beginning, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Carly. She was very responsive and helped us craft a customized set of services for our wedding day. We met in person only a handful of times but very quickly I knew that she ‘got’ my vision for the design. Along the way she helped me enhance it and, ultimately, bring it to life on our wedding day with our other vendors. As others have said, she has great taste and a killer instinct for impactful details. Fast forward to a few weeks before the wedding and she seamlessly took over our vendor coordination. It was comforting to know that she had everything under control in those last few weeks so that I could enjoy the time and not stress. She did a great job organizing our rehearsal and was just the right amount of friendly and firm about what needed to happen and when. Our wedding day was way better than I had even imagined and I was able to enjoy it all with Carly and her team handling the details and the timeline. I will surely reach out to Carly the next time I need to plan a big event – she is wonderful! I absolutely recommend selecting Carly as your wedding planner.

What would I have done without Carly!?? I honestly don't know! I was so overwhelmed and stressed going into the wedding planning process, but she eased my mind immediately. Her established industry relationships, creativity, and organizational skills made everything so easy..and fun! I recommend her to everyone! She will be as hands-on (or off) as you need her to be. I, admittedly, can be a control freak so she let me be as involved as I wanted, but kept me on track and prioritized, and most importantly, on budget :). She's the definition of GIRL BOSS and wedding planning perfectionist! Any bride would be lucky to work with CME!
