Carmen was recommended to us by several vendors in the Lawrence area as an officiant and wedding planner. I am so thrilled that we took their advice.

Carmen met with us and we talked for a long time; she was determined to get to know us as a couple and to understand what we wanted from our wedding service. She sent us sample ceremonies, suggested changes, and was prompt and detailed in her communications with us. Her ceremony was beautiful and touching, and I know that everyone thought so.

We did not engage Carmen as a wedding planner, but she was very generous with her advice, vendor recommendations, and various other odds and ends to make our day go more smoothly. She went above and beyond her duty as our officiant and it was a treat to work with her.

Carmen was amazing. She was very professional and took a lot of time to make sure my husband and I were getting exactly what we wanted in our Save the Dates and Invitations. She went through thousands of invitation with us and made sure to show us exactly what they would look like before we ordered. The prices were SO GREAT!! We were shocked! She did a wonderful job and made the ordeal very stress free.

In retrospect, I would have paid 50% more than what Carmen charged because her service was so outstanding. I was planning a wedding in another state, and she handled everything so smoothly I never had to worry. The amount that Carmen saves you because of her deals with good vendors pays for itself outright, but you cannot put a price on the piece of mind she gives, in her calming presence, her outstanding communication skills, her patient thoughtfulness, and her wisdom, having helped trillions of nervous brides and grooms. She was born to be a wedding consultant.

I've heard so many horror stories of wedding consultants that make it all about them, and Carmen lingers in the background but steps up when she needs to, and she is calming, not anxious. Every time I hear that someone is getting married I absolutely recommend her without any hesitation. She is awesome!

My husband Eric and I highly recommend Carmen Hocking to be your wedding planner. She was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond our expectations ten years ago. Carmen was a huge part of our lives for the ten months of wedding preparation and helped with details big and small. On the day of the wedding, she was instrumental on keeping everyone and everything in place with things many couples never have time to think about: the itinerary of the day, transportation, musician sheet music, marriage license, and even a sewing kit that was needed on a groomsman just twenty minutes before our ceremony! Our wedding day was perfect and we have A Beautiful Wedding from Carmen Hocking to thank!!

Carmen Hocking was a true value to me on our wedding day. She was the cooridinator that came with our church. She went above and beyond with little details of our wedding and ceremony. She made sure that there were no problems, if there were she was on it!!
She helped me in talking with the Pastor and organist in getting our music of choice approved. I would recommend her to any bride!
