Best wedding decision I made by far!
My husband and I were very much on the fence about getting a wedding planner because we believed with the amount of time we had we would be able to easily handle planning a wedding. Things started getting a little overwhelming (I’m not the best at staying on top of what needs to be done) and Charlotte reached out offering her services. It was easily the best decision I made the entire wedding planning process. She is there when you need her but will let you take care of how ever much you want to handle by yourself. The day of, she is the nicest person but knows how to get people where they need to be when they need to be. We had a sudden cold front come in the weekend of our wedding and she made the panic of sorting out how to keep our guests warm an absolute breeze. I remember walking out and seeing everything set up perfectly because she had done it all. She works tirelessly to make sure your day is perfect and we got so many wonderful comments about her from not just our guest but other vendors. I highly recommend her any wedding!Sent on 03/20/2021
Whatley Wedding Design's reply:Thank you so much, Marissa! I loved being your planner! You had a special way of making everyone in attendance as well as the vendor team part of the family! Congratulations again and wishing you a long and happy marriage!

The perfect day-of co-ordinator!
Charlotte was an absolute joy to have help with our wedding! She was extremely helpful and always so kind. She is a calming presence, especially on the big day. I was able to enjoy the wedding with the full confidence the Charlotte would be able to handle anything that came up. We were even able to sort out a couple issues with rentals and vendors the-day-of without the bride knowing about them happening in the first place! Thank you so much for making our wedding day go so smoothly!Sent on 03/20/2021
Whatley Wedding Design's reply:Thank you so much, Gene!! I had so much fun working with you and loved bringing your personal touch to the wedding. Things always go wrong on wedding day - I try my best to make sure they don't affect the big picture! Congratulations again and wishing you both a happy marriage!

Can I have another wedding so I can hire Charlotte again??
Hiring Charlotte to be the coordinator/planner for our wedding was the easiest and best decision. She was incredible from start to finish, helping me stay organized, on top of things, and most of all EXCITED for the wedding day! She helped the planning process be stress-free and smooth and I'm so so thankful, especially in the middle of a pandemic and in an unconventional venue (we got married at a coffee shop)! She helped execute my ideas so well. She is professional, kind, and creative, and communicative. She helped me brainstorm ways to keep the wedding as COVID safe as possible and helped me reach my goal of making our wedding as eco-friendly and sustainable as we could! We visited our wedding venue the day after our wedding to say "thank you" to the owners and workers, and they could not stop talking about how helpful, professional, and "on top of the game" Charlotte was the entire night. Everything she did was beautifully and carefully executed, she was super attentive and kind (she brought me a latte during the reception and made sure I had time to drink it - a MIRACLE worker, for real). I would recommend hiring her again and again!Sent on 03/26/2021
