Holly Simpson, owner of A Charleston Event, was absolutely amazing in helping me plan my wedding! I had TWO WEEKS to put the whole event together because my fiancee is in the Navy and we decided at the last minute to have a ceremony and reception before being relocated to Hawaii on Jan 28. Holly was brilliant with her suggestions of all the vendors I would need and helped with introductions, negotiations, contracts, all the hundreds of questions I had, and keeping me sane (not to mention on budget) throughout the process. Our wedding day was more than I could ever hope for, and our friends & family agreed. Even though we only had 24 guests total and a $3500 budget, Holly's ideas made our day feel like we'd spent millions. Thank you Holly!

My husband has said on multiple occasions, "no wedding should ever take place without a "holly"! She was SPECTACULAR.
After our rehearsal with Holly, I didn't feel an ounce of stress. She made our day go by seamless. If there was an issue, she handled it without me even knowing. I had been in many weddings where I felt the bride and family didn't get to enjoy every second because they were always dealing with last minute details. Holly handled everything to the point that my family and I got to enjoy every part of the best day of my life. She was great before, during, and after our wedding weekend came to an end and I cannot recommend her enough.
It's not every wedding that your family and friends compliment the wedding planner weeks after your wedding is over! Thank you, Holly, for making every fun, stressful, crazy second of our wedding year of planning, come to a perfect day!

Holly was so helpful throughout the while wedding process. I especially loved her familiarity with the other vendors in the area, which gave us insight into which vendors to use, and made everything 100% easier. Also appreciated her composure under fire. It's not everyday a wedding planner has to deal with guests who don't know how to make s'mores or who insist on feeding the resident alligator, but she dealt with everything with aplomb and grace.

If it wasn't for Holly we could never had pulled off our amazing wedding weekend. From the minute we made contact, she was professional, dedicated and committed to making sure that everything my husband and I wanted came true. We threw her many curve balls along the process including pushing the wedding up by 14 months after already booking a venue, and leaving her less then 8 months to put it all together, a six hour time difference and having her convince all our potential venders to wait until 45 days out from our wedding to make us finalize contracts and menus so that we could meet with them in person since we lived on another continent. Through out the entire process I came to think of Holly as more then just our wedding coordinator but as a life-long friend that I continue to stay in contact with over 6 months after our wedding. If you are going to do a wedding (or any other event for that matter) and you need a coordinator, Holly and A Charleston Event is the ONLY option in my opinion!!

Holly at A Charleston Event was the most amazing wedding planner, organizer, coordinator and friend during our entire wedding planning process! She went above and beyond for all our planning, visits, reviews, rehearsal dinner and of course our wedding. She is still in contact with us to this date to see how we are doing 6 months after our wedding. She has also been in close contact with our vendors to see if we received all of our items to our liking. If you are doing an event in or around Charleston, SHE IS THE ONLY ONE YOU NEED!
Thank you Holly!!!

Holly completely coordinated the entire planning of my daughter's destination beach wedding!! I was thrilled! The vendors she recommended were all excellent AND reasonably priced. My daughter and I provided the vision of what we hoped for and Holly made it happen! It was even more beautiful than I had envisioned. She stayed and directed the vendors and ensured everything flowed smoothly. As mother of the bride, I actually relaxed and enjoyed the whole night!!
If you don't hire her, you will only get second best!
