Wedding Planning/Coordinating with Bride and Groom
Caroline was truly our wedding day MVP! From the day we met, Steven and I knew we could trust Caroline and her team to see the hopes of what we wanted our day to look like and she made each wishful thought come to life! We can’t thank her enough for her hours of hard work and understanding as we sent our page-long emails asking questions about the details. She orchestrated the ceremony set up with the flowers, communion details and unity candle placed perfectly. Once we were welcomed by her at our reception (where she had been organizing and coordinating throughout the day so she could be with us at the ceremony), we knew she was our most valuable blessing! Her attention to detail brought life to every corner of our venue, and we were amazed by how gorgeous our reception truly was that night! Every table, every linen, every candle and every glass was intentionally placed to create the most wonderful wedding atmosphere either of us had imagined. We have heard time and time again how our family and guests found our wedding to be the most lovely and beautifully decorated ceremony and reception, with thanks to Caroline for truly being a blessing from the Lord and orchestrating the most wonderful day of our lives! Truly a wonderful team!Sent on 06/24/2019

Amazing team- wonderful experience
The engaging events team are outstanding in every way! Caroline Bean is exceptional at what she does and makes even the partial planning option feel so easy and stress free. Caroline and Clellen ( florist) truly made our vision come to life and did not stop until we were 100% happy with every single detail. Caroline helped us find the best vendors in town and had amazing recommendations. She also thought of every detail that we absolutely would not have even thought of, but were crucial to the wedding day going so smooth! There are so many logistics that go into a wedding and having a great wedding planner is really important. Not only did Caroline and the team take care of all the logistics of the day, but they knocked it out of the park with florals and decor. We were blown away when we saw our ceremony and reception locations all set up. We can’t thank the team enough for their service throughout the whole planning process. Caroline is also the sweetest woman you’ll ever meet and was so calming and reassuring throughout the whole process and especially on the wedding day. If you are searching for the best wedding planning team in Charleston, look no further than engaging events!Sent on 07/17/2019

Our wedding day was a dream come true thanks to Engaging Events!
My mom, my husband, and I worked with Engaging Events to plan our destination wedding at Wild Dunes on Isle of Palms on May 18, 2019 and it was truly a dream come true!Sent on 06/11/2019
From my first calls with Cindy Zingerella and Caroline Bean, I could tell that they were true professionals who knew exactly what they were doing.
From knowing exactly what time sunset would be on the date we had chosen, to suggesting a wonderful officiant with whom we developed a genuine relationship over the months of planning, to capturing our vision PERFECTLY, to finding amazing vendors, to keeping everyone and everything organized, literally NO detail went unaddressed.
My husband and I run a business together, and we both have strong personalities, so keeping us on track and focused was a job in and of itself, and Cindy and Caroline kept us moving forward with efficiency and grace.
While planning the wedding was a lot of work and could be frustrating at times, Cindy, Caroline and Gabrielle, who joined our team later on in the process, all did an amazing job of removing friction for us throughout the process.
When the wedding weekend was finally upon us, all the hard work paid off and I can honestly say, I was not stressed AT ALL. I had had nightmares about becoming a bridezilla or just being so stressed I couldn't enjoy it, but it was the complete opposite of that. I was LITERALLY on cloud nine for the entire weekend and my husband felt the same way. I attribute so much of that to the foresight, organization, and professionalism of Cindy and the entire Engaging Events Team.
Our band was amazing, the food was delicious, our arbor, bouquets and flower arrangements were FLAWLESS, and we are so lucky that we found Cindy and Caroline to bring it all together and help us have what was truly the best day of our lives.
I love working with Cindy and Caroline at Engaging Events. Their creativity, dedication and attention to detail are unmatched! As a videographer, I can always count on Engaging Events—I know that the day will flow perfectly and the couple will be left singing the praises of Cindy and the wedding film I create due to how professional, well organized and how easy the entire team at Engaging Events is to work with.
Beautiful design reflecting the couple's style/personality, clear communication and a seamless day!
Cindy and her team at Engaging Events are a dream to work with! They make every event flawless!
