Carolina Event Design Review

Heather and the whole Carolina Event Design team were absolutely incredible in making my wedding dreams come true, and made the day/weekend so perfect without a stress or worry throughout the whole weekend. Best money we ever spent, and you will not regret it if you do the same!

The Best Planners in Charlotte!

Heather and her team was such as easy choice for us to make (and one of the best choices we made in the wedding planning process). She's an expert in planning, knows how to bring your vision to life, is professional, will let you call or text her with questions, and truly is there to guide you through the entire planning process.

My husband and I were looking for someone who we knew we could trust with the small details and lean on for guidance when it came to the big decisions. Heather keeps you on schedule throughout the whole process to ensure you're not stressed weeks before the big day. When you choose Carolina Event Design, you're allowing yourself to rest knowing your wedding is going to be beautiful and flow perfectly.

We planned a small wedding around 80 people, and Heather helped us make it a fun and intimate event with all of our family and friends. (not to mention it was also beautifully put together). One of the saddest parts about our wedding being over is we miss getting to work with Heather! Absolutely recommend her and her team to anyone in the Charlotte area, they are the best!

We love working with Heather and the whole CED team! They are so thorough and organized right down to the smallest detail. We have filmed many CED weddings and I always love filming the bride and groom's reaction during the "big reveal"; when they finally get to see their event come to life!
