I decided to try and plan my wedding by myself and about two months before the wedding, I suddenly started to panic and realized I needed help. A lot. My husband And I were paying for the wedding ourselves, so we had to be realistic with budgeting. He also thought he could set up and everything on his own. So many planners were extremely expensive, or the ones that weren’t had no experience. I was so lucky to find Madison and her mom. Their prices were fair and had customizable options. They are a family business with years of experience and they are truly in It to help people in love. My only regret was not finding them sooner. They made the day of the wedding seamless. Things went wrong, and no one had a clue because they truly are experts. They are also so personable I remember thinking before that I wanted to invite them as guests, lol. I can’t recommend them enough. One of my bridesmaids is engaged ( lives in another state) and was asking for their information to hire them. We were able to meet with them multiple times, rent decor, have set up and clean up, and I am forever grateful!Sent on 10/11/2020

Exceptional service! Exceeded expectations!
I had the pleasure of working with Madison as she was the director of my son’s wedding. I am not someone who is easily impressed. Madison went over and above in every way. She gave so much time and attention to all of our wedding planning. She met us all via Zoom as we all lived in many different states. She gave countless hours of her time Zooming with us and giving us docs to help organize us with planning. She put together an hour by hour timeline for the day of the rehearsal dinner as well as the day of the wedding so that we would know where we should be at any given time. She collaborated beautifully with the photographer, quartet, venue contact and minister. She has many great contacts and worked well with every different personality she encountered. She has a very friendly disposition but is still very professional, always on time and knows how to command everyone’s attention. She is always happy to offer her opinion but then would make us feel supported no matter our decision. She truly thrived at supporting our vision for the wedding. She had so much wedding insight and experience beyond her years. Once I started working with her I felt more at ease because I was confident in her ability to organize us and not to let a single detail slip through the cracks. She has a gifted way of making you feel comfortable that all of the planning will come together in the end. She is a very hard worker who’s not afraid to get her hands dirty and will roll up her sleeves and assist in any way no matter how menial the task. It’s worth stating again that she went over and above the call of duty at every turn! I was always happy to see her smiling face and I truly feel that we couldn’t have planned such a beautiful wedding without her help. During a stressful time of wedding planning, I could sleep better at night knowing that she was in charge of directing all of the moving parts of the wedding. I would give 10+ stars if I could! Madison was an invaluable asset to our wedding planning and I didn’t want to say goodbye to her once our beautiful wedding was over. I will always truly feel indebted to her for all of her wedding expertise. Make the wisest decision you can make and hire Madison as your wedding director!Sent on 06/08/2021

Wedding coordinator/ planner
Southern events was the best decision I made for my wedding! Madison helped with every aspect of planning. She also helped me with all my decor and rental items which ended up being more cost effective than buying everything myself. She made my whole wedding run smoothly from planning to the actual day of. I really can't recommend them enough! I would hire them in an instant and recommend them to anyone getting married and planning a wedding.Sent on 11/19/2020
