Consultations

After you have selected and ordered your dresses, we would be delighted to meet with you and provide you with written custom plans, along with pricing suggestions for your wedding at no charge. We meet with our clients for consultations on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 10 am-4pm. Typically we do not accept consultations Friday-Sunday, so that our primary focus and attention can be spent creating weddings and special events on the weekends. We are closed on Mondays. During off peak season, after hour and Saturday appointments are available and can be secured with a credit card deposit of $100.00 in the event that you forfeit your appointment for any reason.


A deposit of $750.00, or an estimated 20% of your total invoice, whichever is greater, is required to secure the date on our calendar, and is applied to your balance. 30% of your total invoice is due 90 days prior to your wedding with the remaining balance due in full no later than 17 days prior to the wedding.

Again, thank you for your interest in Carolyn Shepard Design Group! We look forward to meeting with you soon! Read less

I met with Carolyn in December 2012 after communicating with her several times prior to our first meeting. When we met, it was just like two old friends designing a wedding and dreaming about the possibilities from a vision. I wanted to capture the beauty of English window boxes and Victorian elegance. I shared with Carolyn several pictures of my bathroom wallpaper. She immediately grasped the milieu we were trying to create. I ordered some very tiny butterflies, and Carolyn was able to incorporate them into all the flowers for the girls and women. It was a lovely surprise. Carolyn’s artwork complimented so beautifully the grace of St. Mary’s and it stained glass windows.

For The Morehead Inn reception, Carolyn’s work was on display again with the artful appeal created at the Chapel. The design and lush flowers she used at St. Mary’s were repeated at the Inn in every room and space, even the Newell at the bottom of the staircase. For the wedding cake, Carolyn created a gorgeous billowy flower arrangement for the top of the cake as well as a full multi-layered circle around the base of the cake.

Just to demonstrate the artful flower creations by Carolyn, I can share that her work did not go unnoticed! Everyone was simply overcome by such beautiful arrangements that blended with the old home in such an elegant and charming way. Our guests shared that they have never seen anything like it. The guests were invited to take the flowers after the reception to an event or to a friend to cheer up someone’s day. I know Carolyn’s work and the beauty of that Sunday afternoon were enjoyed by many for a long time.

Carolyn is a remarkable artist who has many options to fit budgets. You can trust Carolyn to create your beautiful wedding and reception, and you can be assured that Carolyn and her staff will be in constant contact with you. There are just simply no worries with the Carolyn Shepard Design Group. She was the perfect selection for me.

From planner to bride, I knew that Carolyn and her team were top notch but when I walked into the reception, my breath was taken away. The beautiful linens, rich draping and lavish florals made my dream a reality. From start to finish, my experience with CSDG was flawless. I could not have been happier with the execution of all the details!!!

Carolyn Shepard Design Group is amazing. They went above and beyond on any request or thought my wife and I had. They were available for consult on everything from the complicated to the mundane. Carolyn and Christie took a large amount of stress off my shoulders by helping work out a timeline with the other vendors. The end result was BEAUTIFUL. I could not have asked for more. These are some incredibly talented and trustworthy people.

After I got engaged in January 2012, the first person that I hired to coordinate the floral decor for my wedding was Carolyn Shepard Design Group. Carolyn's reputation in Charlotte (and heck, the entire Southeast) is unparalleled when it comes to quality and creativity. I knew that only CSDG could make my visions a reality. At our first meeting Carolyn looked at me and said "let me create your wedding day as a surprise to you." I agreed immediately and honestly it was the best decision that we made. When we walked into our wedding reception, I was at a complete loss for words. In fact, the only thing that I could do was cry. The entry to the ballroom had two large urns overflowing with roses, gardenias, hydrangea, and long stems of cymbidium orchids. A panel of fresh flowers completely covered the window above the entrance and white curtains draped on either side. Glass vases lined the doorway with floating candles. Inside, an entire wall of candlelight flickers with the cityscape behind. The tables were draped in white silk tablecloths with a combination of "high/low" centerpieces on each one. The "high" arrangements are lush with beautiful roses, cymbidium orchids and gardenias. The "low" arrangements are rings of the same flowers, surrounding a huge hurricane vase with candles and votives. Then, I see the cake table..excuse me, cake PAVILION! Carolyn erected a tent that was then draped with white sheer linens and covered with archways of lush white flowers!! A pearl encrusted table cloth was draped over the cream silk linen. A clear acrylic box that was filled with fresh white rose petals to serve as a stand for the cake.
I haven't yet seen photos from that night and only then will I realize all of the intricate details that CSDG incorporated into my wedding. I am still getting complements from friends and family about the flowers! CSDG exceeded my expectations every step of the way and created an experience that I will never forget. THANK YOU, Carolyn!!

Carolyn and her team were so easy to work with. After my initial meeting, Carolyn provided an outline of what we discussed and next steps. That professionalism and follow-through was exactly what I wanted. She really took the time to listen to my requests and offer detailed examples, photos, etc to assist my decision. Her team provided advanced notice with updates on billing and promptly replied to emails. Carolyn and I met again before the ceremony and she was very accomodating to our ideas and calmly walked us through what to expect. I knew the arrangements and bouquets would be beautiful but they exceeded expectations! I recieved complements all night and couldn't have been more pleased.

Carolyn and her staff were amazing to work with. I only met with her twice while planning my wedding and she was some how able to figure out exactly what I wanted, and make it even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Everything from the flowers, to the table linens and candles (so many candles!), were all absolutely perfect. I would recommend Carolyn to anyone looking for a designer who is extremely talented, professional, and easy to work with.

I was having an intimate wedding with only 10 family members in attendance. Due to it being so small, I wanted everyone to feel like they were still at a big event. When I walked into Carolyn's office to discuss the details of what I had in mind, she understood immediately my vision for the evening and how important the dinner decor was to me. The evening of my wedding I could not keep my eyes off my bouquet when I walked into the suite at the VanLandingham Estate where they were waiting for me. The arrangement on the arch was exactly what I had hoped it would be and more. Gorgeous! The best was yet to come. The decor in the Occulus, where I had my dinner, was perfect and went way beyond my expectations. My guests talked about the room all evening. The entire night was perfect and the decor and flowers were a big part of what made for an amazing evening.

I was so pleased with the services of Carolyn Shepard Design Group. My bouquet, alter flowers, reception florals were all breathtaking and the ideas they (Carolyn and Christie) provided for my overall decor were perfect. All of our guests were commenting on the flowers for the wedding and reception. CSDG was so easy to work with and Christie even helped me get in my dress (corset backed) the day of my wedding. Christie was an expert on that as well! I would highly recommend CSDG to anyone looking for quality floral and design services for their wedding. Not to mention the customer service is excellent! Thanks so much Carolyn and Christie and the entire CSDG team! You really made my day extra special!

Not only were the flowers grorgeous, but she also assisted in helping create a lighting design that the guests are still talking about.
One of her best attributes was the interaction with my daughter, really made our wedding extra special!

Carolyn and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with. I wanted floral elements that were simple and clean, and Carolyn hit it spot on with a mix of low and high vases with single phalaenopsis orchids, beautiful linens, bright bridal party bouquets, and my bridal bouquet of cattleya orchids! She knew exactly how to pull it off, and I love her for it!

Hi Laura!

So glad that you loved all that we chose together for your wedding!

Your bouquet was one of my favorites to create in the past year! I think it suited you and your dress perfectly, and, btw, it was featured on the orchid growers website!!! =)

Loved working with you, and all the wonderful wedding pros that you selected to be a part of "Team Laura!" ;)

Warm Regards,
Carolyn

I really enjoyed working with Carolyn Shepard Design Group! From the very beginning they were involved with every aspect of the flowers and decor for the wedding. There was always someone available that I could call or email with questions. I loved all of their ideas and it was great that I could rent items from them, rather than being stuck with a whole bunch of glass containers that I would never use again. All the arrangements turned out beautiful...I even got compliments from the groomsmen. I would definitley recommend them to future brides!

When I started planning my wedding which was set for September 24, 2011 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Charlotte, NC I had no idea what I was about to experience when I signed my contract to work with Carolyn Shepard Design Group. Carolyn and I hit it off from the beginning because I was a bride on a mission and knew what I wanted to see and also feel on the day of my wedding. To my surprise Carolyn Shepard Design Group totally SURPASSED all of my dreams, goals and expectations! My wedding was more than beautiful, it was completely over the top David Tutera style on a platinum level. Do not make the mistake of thinking that you cannot afford to hire Carolyn Shepard because of your budget. She can and is willing to work with any type of budget that you may have. To give you an example of my wedding day...right before I got ready for the doors to open for me to walk down the isle, they took me through my reception so that I could see it. I completely lost it and started crying uncontrollably because it was the most beautiful reception I had ever seen...in person anyway...LOL. All my dreams came true in that one moment and the nice thing about it was Carolyn and Christie were both there to share that moment with me. I may grow old, but I will never forget what Carolyn Shepard Design Group did for me. Let me leave you with this, if you truly want to experience what I have described for you, call Carolyn Shepard Design Group and let them help you to achieve your dream wedding day.

Working with Carolyn Shepard and her team was an absolute dream! Beginning with our first meeting, we discussed the overall "feel" my fiance and I wanted to create at our reception, and I was immediately met with Carolyn's cheerful warmth and incredible creativity! With her unparalleled experience in creating amazing wedding designs, we greatly appreciated the advice and recommendations she offered each step of the way - especially, the thoughtful, memorable elements she incorporated into our centerpieces to not only help us to achieve our "look" but meet our budget needs. Her floral designs were stunning, and completely transformed a very open, modern-looking, Uptown hotel space into our glowing, "vintage-y" wedding dream! Carolyn's spirit and remarkable gift for event design made each stage of the planning process feel easy and personalized to our needs. Six months after our wedding, family and friends continue to remark upon the unique, beautiful atmosphere Carolyn and her team created for us! She is truly an artist! - Erin B.

Carolyn and Christie were both a delight to work with. Most of our communication was via email, as I was an out of town bride. During my trips to Charlotte when I did visit with Carolyn, I especially appreciated the relaxed atmosphere of the design studio. I was able to walk in, tell her exactly what I wanted- change my mind a few times, and leave knowing that she understood the look that I wanted for my wedding. They listened to me, worked with my budget and made my wedding day even mmore beautiful with the flowers and decor.

Carolyn Shepard Design Group is a fantastic find for flowers and table linens in Charlotte. She came highly recommended to both me and my husband by several different people who promised we would not be disappointed. When we met with Carolyn for the first time I showed her a picture of the bouquet I wanted to carry and explained my partial vision for the reception (colors, candles, etc) She immediately made suggestions to take my flowers to the next level while staying within my budget. She is a little more expensive than some vendors in town but she will work with your budget and her professionalism and responsiveness is well worth the extra cost. She is incredibly knowledgeable of different venues in the area and worked well with all of our other vendors (church, cake, reception site) which is important. My favorite thing about her is she isn't afraid to let the bride know if her vision won't work well with a certain site. She does so respectfully and is always ready to share her vision with you.

The suggestions we received from Carolyn were perfect for us. I really appreciated the thoughtfulness she gave not only to our budget but to the style of wedding and age of attendants. She went the extra mile every step of the way to make sure our day was perfect! I didn't worry one minute about the flowers being where they needed to at the right time.
