    Carrington is THE BEST!

    I consider myself so incredibly lucky to have been able to work with Carrington while planning my wedding. I went into the planning process not knowing how much work goes into creating the perfect wedding and reception. I am SO thankful that I had Carrington along the way. She saved me so much time by suggesting certain vendors and then working with those vendors up through the wedding day. She’s a wedding expert and she made sure that every single thing, right down to the smallest detail, was planned for and perfect. And her creativity is off the charts. She dreamed up a tulip chandelier for the reception and I was obsessed with the idea after she presented it to me. She then worked with the florist to create it and, well, it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Two months later, I still have wedding guests telling me how amazing it was. I also still have wedding guests telling me how beautiful the entire event was, and it’s all because of Carrington. I’m not a creative person and my wedding would’ve been so boring without her. But instead, so many people have said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. I honestly can’t say enough good things about Carrington. I could go on and on and on and on about how amazing she is. I don’t know how I got lucky enough to have her as my wedding planner, but I’m so glad I did! I would recommend her to anyone. You would be the luckiest bride ever to get to work with her!!!

    Barbara (Mother of the Bride)

    If 100 stars were an option, that would not be enough to characterize our experience with Mclean Events Charlotte's Carrington Buck. I call her the "tiny powerhouse." She was everywhere we needed her to be and she quietly, seamlessly, flawlessly executed details about which we had no idea.
    She was absolutely wonderful...professional, knowledgeable, competent, patient, creative, innovative, joyful, kind...
    ALWAYS there when we needed her....
    I could go on forever about her abundant wedding planning skills, but they pale in comparison to how she made us feel. She made our daughter's wedding the most joyful family experience...
    even as we worried and fretted, she patiently, calmly, confidently guided us through every step of the way.

    It was a joy and a blessing working with her. My daughter and I shared with her that one of the reasons we were sad that the wedding was over was that we would miss having her in our lives. We adore her and have officially adopted her in to our family.

    If you are planning a wedding, I would (and already have) highly recommend her to guide you through this major life event.

    Carrington/McLean Events

    I don't even know where to begin describing my experience with Carrington/McLean Events. My husband and I got married 6/12/21 and we worked with Carrington over the last year. In addition to being incredibly organized, responsive, diligent, timely in her communication, and amazingly skilled at collaborating across the multitude of vendors that make a wedding day happen, she is simply a joy as a person to have by your side on this journey. She made sure that anything that needed done got DONE and you never had to worry or doubt that she could make it happen. Carrington is so purely genuine and compassionate and wants your day to be more perfect than you can imagine. Throughout our wedding journey Carrington would check in with me, diffuse my stress and anxiety, and just warm me with her spirit and heart. There were so many moments of emotion on my wedding day and it was such a joy to see Carrington ever-present, ready with a tissue, a hug, a smile, or words of affirmation and encouragement. I always looked forward to our touch base calls and it brings tears of gratitude and awe to my eyes to think of how she truly brought the vision/inspiration/design to life!!!!! She learned about my husband and I and incorporated aspects of our love, our journey together to create our vision/aesthetic. When I walked into our venue I FELT the joy and love in every detail. Carrington is an absolute wonder and you would be BLESSED to have her plan/execute your wedding. Carrington is a consummate professional and a pure joy of a human being. I cannot say enough amazing things about her or McLean Events!! The quality of service was astounding. Thank you for making my wedding day the best day ever and for making my bridal journey so much fun!!!
