    You need Karson Butler Events as your wedding planner/designer!

    Where do we begin to describe how much we love Emily and Karson Butler Events?! If you are looking for a planner, designer, friend to plan your perfect wedding weekend, look no further then Karson Butler Events! From the very first phone call to the wee hours of our wedding day, Emily, Amber, and Gabi were a dream to work with and I am so grateful to have Em in my life who I now call my dear friend.

    From a planning and designing standpoint, Karson Butler Events leaves no stone unturned. They are meticulous with every single detail. Coming from a bride who was overjoyed with excitement while also slightly terrified of what all goes into wedding planning, I could not have asked for a better person to hold my hand through the entire process. From spending time getting to know us as a couple, learning what our priorities were, helping us through the tough budget conversations, sharing her knowledge and expertise with us for all things food, flowers, rentals, design, paper goods, logistics, details, etc, Karson Butler Events is simply the best! Em and the team help you build the bones first (tent, choosing your catering and floral and design partners, timelines, etc) while somehow simultaneously helping lead you through creating your vision, designing your save the dates and invitation suite, creating your registry, thinking through how many will be in your wedding party and what your wedding party will wear, what kind of flowers you like or don’t like for that matter, etc.

    Karson Butler Events pours their whole hearts and souls into every detail of your wedding. Emily spent countless hours with us over the year via phone calls because she helped us plan when we lived out of state from our wedding venue, to scheduling all the important meetings when we were in town to make the most of our time, brunches and lunches because we love Em and wanted to spend so much time with her, and an unimaginable amount of hours the week or two before the wedding overseeing every single aspect of install. They are with you every single step of the way.

    Not to mention preparing every contingency plan possible for a hurricane that showed up in the forecast one week prior to our wedding weekend. (Not kidding!)

    Em, Amber, and Gabi are true professionals who we love so much! Our wedding was a dream come true and it is 100% thanks to Karson Butler Events for making it happen. Every person in our family to our friends still rave about how amazing the KBE team is and how perfect our wedding was. We will forever cherish the memories of our wedding day and that’s all thanks to KBE!

    Amber and Emily are some of the best in the business and if you get to work with them you'll know why. Every detail of our wedding was thought out and beautiful. We had a small 25 person wedding weekend in the middle of the desert in California and KBE managed to make it exactly what we were looking for; from unique save the date boxes with live succulents for our guests, to custom acrylic signage with the perfect fonts... they think of everything. Even though we live in Savannah, GA and they're in DC and CA, planning was seamless with monthly phone calls and plenty of emails, I always felt like everything was getting done on time and really wasn't stressed.

    Also, just because they're both beautiful and create stunning events, don't think they aren't willing to get their hands dirty. From picking up and moving chairs and boxes of liquor all the way across the venue, to helping clean up the post-dinner table, Amber and Emily were willing to do everything that needed to be done to make the weekend flow effortlessly for myself and my husband. Normally I am a type A control freak who doesn't delegate at all, but for my wedding I allowed KBE to take the reigns and I am SO glad I did. They are clearly experts in their field and they anticipated everything.

    If you want a truly memorable, thoughtful day, where everything looks well-planned and your guests and you have a wonderful experience, you should hire KBE.

    Simply the best!!

    We worked with Emily and the KBE team on our wedding this past Winter in Brooklyn, NY. They relieved the stress during the entire planning process! From working with our vendors, coordinating the all of the little logistical details to flawlessly executing the day, they were a joy to work with and really allowed me to be in the moment and enjoy the day! I can't recommend the Karson Butler team enough.
