Best Planner and Team, Period. A Perfect Wedding Experience.

Don't even have words to express how incredible Cindy was as a wedding planner. Not just thorough, thoughtful, organized, and meticulous (she's all that and more). but she took time and put in effort to get to know us as a couple and what we wanted for our wedding weekend, even when we couldn't articulate it. She didn't just have great ideas--she had solutions for how to execute them. Her energy, passion for her job. authentic connection to her clients, and endless connections to terrific vendors are unmatched and turned our wedding experience into something even greater than we expected. If you're planning a wedding, you'd be crazy to not go with Engaging Events.

Amazing, deeply respected and highly experience team

Cindy and her team at Engaging Events are the best in their game. Upon learning that we were working with her, every vendor would visibly relax - her reputation for being thorough, practical and focused on what really matters was clear. Her decades of experience and trusted relationships across the Charleston-area wedding community were especially helpful for us as a couple planning a wedding from another state. Executing an outdoor event on Kiawah especially presented logistical and weather based challenges for which Cindy offered countless solutions - easing our minds knowing she'd done it MANY times before and had the full trust of the vendor teams onsite the day of. We can honestly say our wedding day was stress free knowing we were in her hands. Her approach is practical, thorough and couple focused, packing a ton of value into reasonable planning fees. We felt the support of a high-touch planner where we needed it most and the light-touch guidance where we were more comfortable navigating on our own, and in the final month, it was so great to be able to step away from the vendor management and event details knowing that it was all in Cindy's extremely capable hands. We are so glad we opted for EE over some of the flashier alternatives researched - truly the best decision we made was hiring Cindy's team.

The most amazing wedding planners!!!

Cindy and Caroline and their team were the most amazing wedding planners. They were incredibly easy to work with and went above and beyond to make all of my wedding dreams come true. During the engagement season, I was not once stressed even being the most indecisive person on the planet. They made it so fun and provided as many options as We needed to make our decisions. On the wedding day, everything went perfectly. There was not one thing that I was aware of that went wrong. The only time the entire wedding day that I cried was when I walked through the venue after it was set up before the ceremony. I cried so hard because they completely brought my vision to life. I could not recommend engaging events enough!
