    10/10 would recommend!!

    PTE was recommended to us as preferred vendor and it did not disappoint! We worked with Carla, Kylie, and Lynette and these ladies were nothing but reliable and professional! Our wedding coordinators Kylie and Lynette helped ease our minds during the day of the wedding and I was not stressed at all! I am soo happy that we decided to go with PTE. I can see why they would be a preferred vendor! 10/10 would recommend to any couples looking for a wedding coordinator!

    Excellent, excellent, excellent!!!!!

    I cannot say enough great things about Carla and her team. We hired Precious Times Events for our daughter's wedding and Carla's communication with us began right away. Carla made sure we were on track with the hiring of our vendors, shared many suggestions to ensure the process was not stressful and, above all, made sure that we were feeling calm and reminded us to enjoy the journey.
    I have a type A personality, and have met my match with Carla. I had high hopes for a coordinator's assistance -- for both prior to and during the wedding -- but Carla far exceeded even my expectations. She anticipated my questions, advised me of things I hadn't foreseen, and was always one step ahead of me. Carla's team was so well trained that they were completely on top of all my unusual requests without needing a reminder. Unbeknownst to me, Carla had several "Plan B" options up her sleeve in order to alleviate any last minute scrambling for unplanned circumstances that may have arisen.
    My daughter's wedding day was made perfect because of Carla and Precious Times Events. I was able to relax and enjoy my family and our celebration because everything went so smoothly. Carla became a friend for whom I will be forever grateful.
    If I could post 20 stars for Precious Times Events, it still wouldn't be enough to do justice to the professional and expert coordinating services Carla provides.

    Precious Times Events was nothing more than amazing

    Precious Times Events coordinated an event on Aug 28th at the Magnolia Room in Rock Hill, Carla and her staff did a wonderful job. They kept us updated during the entire planning process and answered any questions we had on event day. You won't find many event planners this dedicated.
