Amazing Wedding Planner
Carla helped plan my wedding and she truly went above and beyond the entire time! She was sweet yet totally in charge the entire time, dealt with my absolutely insane family with grace and made the entire venue sparkle with her beautiful decor. She was such a pleasure to work with and so responsive in the months leading up to the wedding! She absolutely made the day a joy! I would recommend her 1000% to anyone that is planning an event! Could not have made its through the process without Carla!Sent on 02/24/2020

Beautiful Wedding by PTE @ the Quarry of Carrigan Farms!
Carla was the best decision I made when it came to my wedding! She was available to me for literally anything I needed; any concern, question or smallest worry I had leading up to my wedding. She was also an advocate for me as the bride and made sure everything was what I wanted and not anyone else! Her creativity is amazing. We planned out my main decor together and then she surprised me with so many other details that were beyond anything I could have imagined. Her calm demeanor brought my stress down every time I talked to her over the course of my nine months of planning. The wedding day ran so smoothly and I knew I could finally breathe and just trust her and there wasn’t one thing I would change. THANK YOU Carla and your crew! I will recommend y’all to the remainder of my friends who have yet to be married.
Sincerely, the new

Carla overdelivered! So happy with our decision to hire her over anyone else!
Carla and her team are top-notch! Carla is creative, professional, detail-oriented and answers her phone! That last thing is extremely important when there are a million details to tend to and as a MOB I need assurance that things are getting done. Carla was more than I could have hoped. Our event last weekend was so very special largely because of the atmosphere Carla helped to create. She followed my daughter’s vision to a tee and created a memorable day that will forever be etched in all our minds. I’ve received tons of compliments on the wedding and we give Carla and her team the lions share of the credit! Do not hesitate to hire her! She will work within every budget. And other vendors love working with her and that’s important! She never makes you feel stupid or inept in any way. She exudes confidence because this woman knows what she is doing. She will make life so much easier so don’t dare try to do your event yourself!Sent on 09/30/2019

Carla is amazing
I don’t even know where to begin. Carla was absolutely wonderful. We hired her for the month leading up to our wedding. She created a timeline and made sure all of our vendors had it. The day of Carla went above and beyond to make sure everything went off without a hitch! She had wonderful ideas along the way as well. She did whatever she had to do to make sure I wasn't nervous/anxious. She helped calm me when needed. I would hire her again and again.Sent on 09/25/2019
Precious Times Events's reply:Casey! Thank your for the opportunity and for your generosity! I appreciate you having faith in us on your big day. I appreciate and enjoyed working with you and your mom and meeting your friends and family. Many years of happiness!

Carla was great in helping to coordinate my wedding.
Carla was great in helping to coordinate my wedding. She managed to coordinate with all of the vendors and get them on the same page for the timeline, even when small pieces shifted to accommodate. Her team was instrumental in assisting to setup decorations and get everything look great! There were plenty of things she took care of, that never even got back to me, taking much of the stress off me that day. I am very grateful for her involvement!Sent on 11/14/2019

Everything You're Looking For!
Carla was our secret weapon throughout the whole wedding planning process. She constantly went above and beyond what we expected, and truly made my wife and I feel like our wedding day was as important to her as it was to us. Carla has a rare blend of toughness, levity, and strong communication that makes her absolutely invaluable. We never once felt concerned that all bases weren't being covered, and could always count on her for a quick reminder to take the day in and enjoy as much as possible. I cannot recommend Carla highly enough. She made our day seamless and perfect.Sent on 08/11/2019
Precious Times Events's reply:Sam! Y’all were a pleasure to work with! I can’t thank you enough for your business. I enjoyed working with you and your bride and meeting your family. Wishing you years of happiness! Carla

Hire Carla as your month-of-coordinator!
Precious Time Events (Carla) are so great to work with! I was feeling so stressed out about the millions of things that I needed to do and Carla stepped in as my day and month of coordinator to take care of everything. Carla communicated with all of my vendors to ensure all details and timelines were met. She was even a great, neutral person to vent all of my wedding stress to. :-) I could'nt have done it without her. Highly recommend and such a great resource!Sent on 10/15/2019

Absolutely amazing, professional, great communication
Very easy to work with and very professional. From the time I first contacted them I knew then cared about my event and were always fast to respond to questions. Arrived on time and everything was as promisedSent on 06/25/2019
Brittany · Married on 04/06/2019
Carla was fantastic from the first time we talked. Even before the "month of coordination" started she would check in on me to see if I needed anything. On day of the wedding she brought an assistant that was equally as awesome. Whenever I couldn't make a decision she made one for me and everything turned out perfectly!Sent on 04/26/2019
Precious Times Events's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! I appreciate your kind words! I enjoyed meeting you, your Groom and all of your friends and family. Wishing you many years of love and happiness!

Grateful Mother of the Bride
My daughter hired Carla Ballard as a day-of wedding coordinator and met with her months in advance of her November 10, 2018 wedding. I did not meet Carla until the walk-through at the venue a few weeks before the wedding. Carla immediately impressed me as someone who was knowledgeable of all details that needed to be worked out and who could make things happen in a stress-free way. We were so fortunate to have her guidance in making some decisions on things that were still up in the air. She saw that we were planning to do some things ourselves that were going to be more work than we had realized and helped relieve us of some of the unrealistic tasks. She went above and beyond, not only in those weeks ahead of the wedding but also on my daughter's wedding day. She kept everyone on schedule and made sure the vendors were coordinated on the timeline of events. Most of all, it was good to know there was someone in charge of all the details without my daughter or myself having to direct anything. The wedding went beautifully and Carla was available behind the scenes for anything that needed attention, allowing us to enjoy a stress-free day. I am so grateful for Carla's guidance in making my daughter's vision of her wedding come to life. I wholeheartedly recommend Carla as a wedding coordinator, without any reservation. She is fantastic!Sent on 11/25/2018
Precious Times Events's reply:Janet, thank you so much for the opportunity to be a part of Erika’s wedding day! It was truly an honor. I enjoyed meeting you and your family, I appreciate the kind words and the time you spent you out of your busy to day this review. Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season! Carla
Erika · Married on 11/10/2018
I can't say enough about how happy my husband and I are that we hired Carla! Wedding planning proved to be a huge commitment, and I'm not sure the day would have gone anywhere near as smoothly as it did, had it not been for Carla.Sent on 12/09/2018
She helped with the walk-through at our venue, and thought of details that never occurred to us. Leading up to the wedding day, Carla handled the communication & coordination with our vendors, and made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time for the rehearsal & the wedding, which was a huge burden off our shoulders! On the wedding day, Carla was even there to help us with a last-minute emergency - a torn veil!
We couldn't have asked for a better coordinator, and I can't recommend Precious Times Events enough for any event planning & coordinating needs.
Thanks for all you did for our big day, Carla!
Precious Times Events's reply:Thank you so much Erika for the review and kind words. Your words filled my heart with happiness! Wishing you many years of happiness and love!
Chelsea · Married on 11/03/2018
I hired Carla as a day-of planner for my wedding this past November. She was a huge help not only on the day-of but in the days leading up to the wedding. She offered to help with centerpieces, place settings, seating charts, and wrangling my vendors together to make sure my venue had everything they needed from them. On the big day she was there from sun up to sun down helping. With everything from decorations to making sure everyone was on schedule and where they needed to be at all times. Overall, I’m happy that we went with Carla. Without her the day would not have gone as seamlessly as it did. Thank you Carla!Sent on 12/03/2018
Precious Times Events's reply:Chelsea, you were a joy to work with! I enjoyed meeting you and Jon as well as your families! Thank you for the kind words. Wishing you many years of love and happiness! Carla

Lindsey · Married on 06/09/2018
Carla was a dream to work with ! We were on a budget and she worked with us. We gave her our vision and fairytale like wedding on a budget and she helped make sure we got our dream wedding. When I would stress beyond belief over things related to the wedding she was there to calm me down and ensure everything would be fine. Her husband and partner was also a dream to work with. When I was nervous about walking down the aisle ( not a big fan or crowds and attention all on me) he told me the hard part was over and it was time to party. Both Carla and her husband were amazing ! They really love what they do and it shows ! She also runs a decor rental business as well and saved us literally $100+ on decorations for the wedding ! When you hire Carla you are literally hiring a dream deal !
Carla I can never thank you enough for all the amazing things you and your husband did for us !
If you do not hire Carla you are making a horrible decision! You want her on your side and big day she really is a dream maker and I can not say enough good things !!!Sent on 07/16/2018
Precious Times Events's reply:Lindsey, thank you so much for the kind words! I loved working with you, your groom and family! It was absolutely a fun day! Wishing you many years of happiness!

Kama · Married on 05/27/2018
Carla ensured that our day went according to plan without a hitch. Anything I tried to remind her of was already taken care of and we had back up plans just Incase. She reiterated for me not to worry, spoke up for me and reminded me to eat. She calmed me when she saw I got anxious. She was there for my calls and texts. Made sure she was familiar with the venue. Made recommendations as needed. Overall, what was needed for us.Sent on 05/30/2018
