Hiring Top Tier was the best choice we made in the whole wedding process, other than choosing each other. Carolyn was truly a godsend. As an anxious and indecisive bride, she helped to calm my nerves without just dismissing my concerns. Throughout the whole process, she was there to provide support and encouragement, even though we only technically had her for month-of services.Sent on 06/07/2018
I had two separate instances in the planning process when I majorly freaked out and panicked. My husband and I emailed her to see about meeting, and she replied quickly and kindly, letting me know her availability for the following day. One of those instances was due to my decision to change the entire plan for rentals, decor, and florals...a month before the wedding. She handled it like a champ and made me feel super comfortable with the new direction we decided to go. My husband and I are happy we made those changes, but know they absolutely wouldn't have happened without Carolyn.
The day of the wedding was a dream. It went by too quickly, as every bride says, but it was honestly the least stressful day of my life. Again, I'm a super anxious and indecisive person (also with a huge dose of perfectionism and need for control), so for me to say it was stress-free is a big deal.
Basically, we can't say enough good things about Carolyn and Top Tier. They really don't charge enough for their services and commitment to each couple. We would hire Top Tier again a million times over. Seriously, HIRE THEM!!!

The BEST of the BEST-Top Tier Events
THE ABSOLUTE BEST! HIRE TOP TIER RIGHT NOW!! We hired Top Tier Events & Top Tier Band in a package for our wedding and were so happy with their service. Our wedding truly was a dream come true thanks to Top Tier. They also agreed to do our floral service for us as well. I really wanted a garden arbor at our ceremony and Carolyn built a custom one for us. I was so impressed! She is superwoman of the events world! The flowers for our wedding were so BEAUTIFUL and she didn't charge an arm & a leg like more florist in Nashville do. Carolyn always worked with me on our budget and helped make affordable suggestions and alterations throughout our wedding planning process. My mom even says how we will hire top tier again when my sister gets engaged. We loved working with Carolyn & JD from Top Tier. They are so professional, organized, budget friendly & FUN! Highly recommend!!Sent on 03/20/2019

Would recommend 10000x over
Carolyn was AMAZING from the very beginning. We weren't sure at first if we wanted to hire a planner but after the wedding, we were both SO HAPPY that we chose Top Tier Events. Carolyn was literally a life saver and made sure that everything went how it was supposed to. She was more than organized and had everything you could think of on hand in case it was forgotten. She was more than accommodating with everything I asked or wanted and went above and beyond. If you are going back and forth about whether or not to have a planner - DO IT - and better yet, choose Top Tier Events.Sent on 11/12/2018

Carolyn was wonderful to work with! Top Tier is the name of her game and it shows. The last event we worked together went smoothly and effortlessly and even made things a little easier for this dj!
As owner and band leader of a very popular wedding band for the last decade, I've worked with MANY wedding planners. Unfortunately, more often than not, they don't do the most basic things that a wedding planner should do. Many times I don't even hear from the wedding planner before the wedding and they don't even send a timeline (even though I do all the emceeing as well). I learned early on to take matters into my own hands and get every reception detail necessary to make sure the evening goes as smoothly as possible. Carolyn (the owner of Top Tier events) has been my assistant in doing so for the hundreds of weddings we have done. Thankfully she has now branched out on her own to offer her amazing talents and attention to detail to all brides, not just ones that have booked Top Tier Band. You can read MANY impeccable reviews of Top Tier on our Wedding Wire page, and so many of those clients mention the incredible organization and customer service, all of which Carolyn has assisted me. I'm so glad Top Tier Events is now part of the Top Tier family!!
