Thanks to Heather and Gina, our daughter’s wedding at the Duke Mansion was amazing. Heather met with us a few times and listened to what we all wanted and expected. With so many out of town guests and family attending, we wanted to be sure everything was covered. I can’t say enough about her expert coordination of vendors during the “month-of” planning as well as the attention to detail during the rehearsal and especially on the day of the wedding! We didn’t have to worry about a thing – Heather’s competence shined through. When we asked a question – Heather had the right answer! Her “day of” timeline was concise and made the day go smoothly. From gathering groomsmen to helping the bride and bridesmaids get ready – Heather and Gina were there. They made sure we were always where we needed to be before, during, and after. We counted on their expertise to ensure the day went smoothly – ceremony and room setup, flowers, cake, photographers, dj, etc. – Heather had listened to us and made sure all was done right. I’ve had many compliments from guests who enjoyed the event from start to finish. And here’s a big shout-out to Heather and Gina for gathering all gifts, flowers, etc. and securing in a safe place post-wedding. Heather and Gina anticipated our every need. I would highly recommend Heather!!! It was the wedding celebration our daughter and husband dreamed of – thank you.

If you want to actually ENJOY your wedding planning process and not stress out through the entire journey, hire CED! These ladies are truly talented and I felt like I was their only client. It's by far the best money we spent and by the end of it all they felt like family! We're planning to get together for Thanksgiving. :) Do yourself a favor, make life easy on yourself and hire CED! You won't be disappointed!

Professional Network & Endorsements

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!

Love working Carolina Event Design! Heather and her team are always a pleasure very attentive to their clients as well as the vendors! Love you ladies!! Tommy McCart

If you are serious about hiring a true professional event planner-Heather and her team at CED are at the top of the class.
