With a background in entertainment at Walt Disney World, a talent in art, an eye for placement, and a vivid imagination, the many facets of event planning come together seamlessly!

By always picturing the event “on stage”, Carrie Darling Events can "choreograph" the perfect elements of your event- along with appropriate timing. Detailed timelines are created for each even to ensure a good flow for every event. Whether you are interested in day-of coordination for your Wedding Day, or full theme development and vendor referals, we are excited to start waving our magic wand to put your fairy tale into motion!

There is immense detail and thought that are injected into each event, whether it's the monogram, table names, the way the napkin in folded, or even a surprise introduction slideshow- our goal is to make your wedding more than you imagined! We want your guests to keep making the rounds around the room, continuously discovering new elements that tie in the personalities and interests of the Bride and Groom!

So, whether you have a vision of a small, intimate gathering or a grand, sparkling gala- we are excited to introduce a “Darling" element to your celebration.

Carrie Darling and her husband Matt are the best! From my first conversation with Carrie, I knew I found my planner! She is amazing! I gave her one idea and she completely ran with it! My wedding was gorgeous! I can only describe it as Epic! Carrie attention to all the details is perfection! When I walked in, it was like walking into a dream! Her husband, Matt, brought all of her designs to life and they were gorgeous! My guests are calling my wedding, "The Wedding of a Lifetime!" Carrie was not only my planner, she is now my friend! I will definitely be calling her for the next event! She is patient and very understanding! Plus Carrie thinks of everything! I was never stressed once while planning because I knew Carrie was there to handle everything for me! She is truly the greatest wedding planner ever, hands down! Thank you Carrie Darling for a magical day and night at our wedding!

Carrie did an amazing job for my daughters wedding on May 28, 2014 at the Marco Island Marriott. Carrie came highly recommended and we were not disappointed! She was truly amazing with all she did for us. It was hard planning a destination wedding knowing we would not be able to go down and see and meet people before the wedding. Carrie assured us that we were in good hands and she would take care of everything the day of the wedding so we didn't have to worry or do a thing but get ready for the big day! Carrie did as promised! From the ceremony to the cocktail hour then on to the reception everything was magnificent! She was truly there for anything that was needed. I can not say enough good things about Carrie. If you are looking for a wedding coordinator you need not look any further...Carrie is your person!

Carrie Darling Events with Carrie Darling was the best decision that my husband and I made when it came to planning our destination wedding in Marco Island, Florida. Carrie is not only the sweetest person, but she is very professional, and obviously - super organized. Carrie made planning our wedding easy as pie! She recommended fabulous vendors that we are thrilled with, she helped design our flowers, welcome bags, and all of the final touches that put a special mark on our most special day! Carrie was very hands on with everything from start to finish, from the smallest details, to the biggest moments. You will not find a more passionate planner around - I'm totally convinced! Carrie even helped wrangle our enormous wedding party into a top notch rehearsal (which included itineraries for our family!) - which turned into the most wonderful wedding day!! We can't thank Carrie and her team enough for letting us trust her with our Wedding! If you are considering a planner, consider Carrie Darling Events, they are truly amazing and talented, you'll be in wonderful hands!! - Michelle and Kevin (Long Island, NY)

Being a New York Bride I was looking for someone that was able to step in and plan my wedding like they were me, being that I was so far away. From the begining Carrie got to know me and my fiance in order to see exactly what it was that we wanted for our wedding. She was amazing at every detail and aspect of the planning and knew exactly what I wanted and what she had to do to achieve it. This was all in the first couple of months of working with her! During the year and a half I spent corressponding and building a relationship with Carrie without ever even meeting her, I felt completely comfortable and confident that our wedding was going to be exactly what we wanted. Her vision and talent made my dreams come to fruition on our big day! Because of Carrie, my husband and I were able to enjoy our wedding day completely without having to worry about any major or minor detail. Carrie and her crew are truely magicians and we are forever greatful that they were able to create the most perfect day that myself, my husband and our families will remember forever! <3 Mr. & Mrs. James Cambria

Her name says it all! Carrie Darling was just perfect and an absolute joy to work with. She was very professional throughout our planning and I felt like she really understood what we were going for and made it happen. Flawlessly! She and her husband, Matt, are so creative and really made us feel special. They were both at the wedding until the very end (1:00 AM!!) to make sure everything was going as planned. I also want to add that Carrie was 7 months pregnant at the time - what a trooper!! They worked very well with the other vendors to coordinate everything. I wish I could have another event just to work with Carrie again. She was AMAZING as a wedding planner and a person. Anyone planning a wedding should utilize Carrie Darling Events for their wedding planning!!

As a bride from New York I didn’t know much of who to hire for my big day. Originally, I had planned to have my wedding at the Ritz Carlton in Naples, but my mind was changed when I met my photographers at “New Ground” they helped me change my entire wedding so that I can have my dream come true. New Ground was definitely the top of the line, so I took their advice and went with their word. First, they referred me to go to Marriott Hotel in Marco Island… I went – Loved it and booked it! Second, they referred me to Salon Tease which I have to say coming from N.Y - David & Daniel are by far the best at what they do and…. third of all, they referred me to Carrie Darling.
I never had the pleasure of meeting face to face with Carrie since her schedule was really full and I had 1 day left in Naples before I headed out to N.Y. …We did chat a lot through email. When I first found out that Carrie was booked almost every weekend which I was interested in – I changed my wedding day to a Tuesday just to have her. I knew that by having her that day it would really make a difference. I sent her 2 photographs of exactly what I wanted and hoped that it will look identical.
The big day came and I was about to walk down the aisle. When I did, I looked up and started crying my eyes out. 1 – Because of course I was marrying my best friend and 2 – because she did an absolutely amazing job matching my photographs. I couldn’t believe that everything was exactly the way I wanted it. I couldn’t stop crying, I had so many tears of happiness. I would definitely recommend Carrie to everyone that I know!

As a bride you may ask yourself.."Do I really need a wedding planner"..the answer is yes. Carrie Darling. She is one of the most creative people I know and truly made my wedding memorable. If you have an idea she will take is and spin it into something amazing. Aside from all of the decor she did, she also made sure everything ran smoothly at the ceremony and reception, and took away any wedding day anxiety. She was also extremely helpful in recommending vendors which was especially nice as I am from NY and had a Florida wedding.

We are from Wisconsin & got married on Marco Island, FL. Carrie Darling Events & Carrie Darling were incredibly easy to work with and the communication was fluid in order to plan our day. Everything was awesome!! We could not have asked for anything more from Carrie. Her calm, kind nature will make any nervous bride feel at ease. And even with the weather turning negative she was able to bring the outdoors in and create a beautiful space! We were so fortunate to have worked with Carrie Darling Events and we would highly recommend her to anyone getting married!

Carrie was absolutely fantastic! She made planning our wedding so easy and stress free. She really made our dream wedding come true and so seamlessly. Last minute we moved the reception inside due to the cold weather and she made the inside look absolutely beautiful, you would have never known that until that morning we had planned an outside affair. Our guests could only talk about how beautiful everything looked from the bbq the night before to the ceremony, cocktail hour and finally the reception. I would highly recommend calling Carrie Darling to help plan your wedding if you want a stress free and beautiful day.

Carrie Darling was the perfect choice to provide string lighting for my outdoor wedding reception. The lights were bright and ALL worked and the setup and take down was seamless. I met Carrie's husband on the way out and I just have to say how appreciative I am of their polite way of doing business and excellent service. In retrospect I would've trusted them to decorate the whole event!

My husband and I wanted a destination wedding in Florida, away from the cold of Ohio, and choose Marco Island as our location. Not only is it difficult to plan a wedding for 90 people locally, but trying to plan it and coordinate everything hundreds of miles away was very hard and stressful at times. This was why we decided to hire Carrie Darling Events to help us plan and create the perfect wedding! And she did not disappoint at all! Carrie was very responsive with all of my emails and questions throughout the last 9 months, gave great advice on planning and ideas for our wedding, and the decor she choose for our reception was absolutely stunning! She put together a detailed timeline for all vendors to follow, which made our ceremony and reception run smoothly and on time. Carrie took the stress of the Big Day out of my hands so that I could concentrate on what really matters: getting married:). I would definitely recommend Carrie for anyone planning a wedding locally or from afar!

I used Carrie for her lighting - I love the look of the string lighting outside on the terrace for an evening reception. Unfortunately, our reception was moved indoors due to weather. The string lights were also moved inside. They still gave a nice look to the room, but I don't think it was worth the price. Two strings of lights for $800 seemed pricey. I thought I would have had more lighting. I wouldn't recommend this for inside, but maybe outside would be better.

Carrie Darling was absolutely wonderful in helping to create one of the best days of our lives! She planned our entire wedding from start to finish. We had a wedding at a venue that was a blank canvas. We had some general ideas of some crazy things that we wanted at the wedding and she pulled it together with a beautiful cohesive theme. Imagine trying to turn an Arts Hall into a lounge-y night club during the reception, or trying to pull together elements of an Asian theme complete with lion dancers and a tea ceremony, with a a cigar bar and cognac hour. More than just coordinating events the day of and keeping everyone sane, Carrie was amazing to work with during the brainstorming sessions - coming up with the concepts, as well as trying to keep us on schedule negotiating with vendors (even while we made it harder on her when we couldn't choose!) We had so many people tell us it was the best party (not just wedding) that they had ever been to!!! Would highly recommend Carrie for any event planning. And a big thanks also to her husband, Matt, who also helped so much in executing our vision on the day of our wedding.

Carrie Darling is the most wonderful, amazing wedding planner a bride could ask for. We live in Las Vegas, and I had never even been to Florida before, so I understandably had some anxiety about never seeing our venue. Once I started working with Carrie, my anxiety was immediately comforted. Carrie always responded to my emails right away, making me confident that my wedding was in good hands every single step of the way. Carrie went above and beyond in taking care of my requests, getting every single detail perfect. My wedding was everything I've dreamed of and more, and it wouldn't have been possible without Carrie!

Having traveled from Columbus, Ohio to Marco Island, FL for our destination wedding, it would have been impossible for me to be a part of every single detail our of wedding day preparation. I provided Carrie with my ideas (and pictures to supplement) and she handled the rest. Her expertise in the industry is top-tier; moreover, her attention to detail cannot be matched. Any brides needing a hands-on, quality driven professional, most certainly should go with Carrie Darling Events.
To top off the incredible service provided, her tablescape abilities are unbeatable. All in attendance were astonished at the site of the event.
The five star rating really says it all!

It was a pleasure working with Carrie. Though I did not use her wedding planning services, she was very responsive to all my emails, questions and concerns about the lighting and drapery she was going to provide for my wedding. After contacting multiple vendors about draping and lighting, Carrie was the best equipped. The drapery looked stunning and totally transformed the space!! I would highly recommend it. I just wish that I ordered a few more lights so it glowed even more, but she was very flexible with me on that too because I wanted a very specific color and she did an excellent job at getting it perfect. Thanks so much Carrie!

Carrie was amazing! From the beginning, she was quick to respond to all my questions, and offered really good advice and ideas. Carrie went out of her way on multiple occasions to help me, and went above and beyond my expectations. Carrie is really creative, fun, and I was 100% comfortable that she would take care of every detail. On my wedding day, I literally did not worry about a thing (even when it started to downpour an hour before my beach ceremony) because I knew Carrie had everything covered. I'd recommend Carrie to every bride!

Carrie was always cheerful, helpful and responded to a never ending series of e-mails promptly. I honestly do not think we could have done it without her help. She helped us with everything - makeup, photographer, lunches for the bridal suite, etc. In short, there was nothing she was unwilling to do or provide assistance with. Destination weddings offer great rewards but significant challenges. Carrie's dedication and professionalism enabled us to reap the rewards without encountering any of the difficulties. We are eternally grateful to her for making my daughter's wedding weekend absolutely perfect!! I will never be able to thank her enough for what she provided!!

Carrie Darling Events was absolutely wonderful to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. My husband and I live in Chicago so most of our communication with Carrie was via email, phone, and text.

We hired Carrie in April and began discussing ideas for our wedding in Marco Island. It was such a wonderful experience. She is so passionate about her ideas and she truly wants to make your vision come true. She was always very responsive and a great source of ideas! We met with her in June when we came down for a visit and it was so great to "meet" her after working with her for a couple of months via phone and email. She set up our vendor appointments, make-up/hair trials, and completed a sample table/centerpiece for us. I felt at ease when we went back to Chicago knowing that Carrie would handle all of the details and ensure our wedding day was beautiful (and stress-free).

Throughout the planning process, Carrie helped me come up with numerous ideas for the wedding, welcome bags, bridesmaid's gifts, groom's cake, my accessories for the wedding, and much more! I felt like she was my a great friend not just my wedding planner. She also helped me stay on track with the planning process and created a timeline for us so we didn't have to worry about anything the day of our wedding.

The day of the rehearsal she made sure the church went smoothly, answered everyone's questions and collected all our "goodies" for our wedding day. Of course, our wedding day was perfect!! We didn't have to do anything except relax, enjoy each other, and celebrate with our family and friends. It was wonderful. Everything turned out perfectly. Carrie and her team made our day so special. All of our ideas came together and it was EXACTLY what we wanted and more! It felt surreal. We had over 80 people attend our destination wedding in Florida and everyone said it was the BEST wedding they have ever been to. It was fun, elegant, and romantic! I can't wait to see our video and all of our photos.

Overall, Carrie was a pleasure to work with and I'm sad that I won't get to talk to her anymore. I wish she was located in Chicago because I would have her plan all of our events!! Maybe a destination baby shower in a couple years?! :-)

Carrie and her team at Carried Away Events were wonderful. Being a destination bride it created more of a challenge in the wedding planning process, but Carrie was there every step of the way in assisting us in creating our vision for our wedding and answering any and every question that came to mind. On the actual day of the wedding, Carrie showed her true talent. At the last minute, we had a storm blow through which caused us to have to use our plan B. Carrie was able to execute everything so perfectly that the guests didn’t even know all the changes that happened. Throughout the whole event she was calm, professional and always smiling. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and our guests all commented on how amazing and memorable it was. My husband and I would HIGHLY recommend Carrie and her team at Carried Away Events!

I first heard about Carrie Darling and Carried Away Events through Wedding Wire when I was looking for a Day-Of-Coordinator for my Marco Island wedding, and from the first inquiry I sent her, to the last moments of my reception, she was an absolute joy to work with! While there was not a large quantity of reviews on Wedding Wire for her, every review was outstanding, and I knew I'd stumbled upon someone special.

From the very beginning, months before I officially hired her, she was nothing short of enthusiastic, in a very sincere and genuine way, and there was something that set her apart from the other planners I'd contacted. Although I only hired her for the day of, she was extremely generous with her time and treated me like I was her number one priority. She didn't miss a beat, she was extremely thorough in her email replies, and it was evident that weddings were her passion.

I felt like she was one of my best friends and my wedding cheerleader during the year of planning - always interested to see the little details, willing to give her input and offer resources but never pushy or sales-y, and checking in often which helped to motivate me during those occasional moments of feeling overwhelmed or tired of planning. Despite feeling like a good friend during the planning, she was always professional, not to mention extremely organized, and perpetually upbeat and optimistic.

When I finally "met" Carrie two weeks ago, I felt like I'd known her for ages and she was just as impressive in person! We sat down and went through the details, and she was so on top of everything. At that moment, every worry and question that had arisen while planning this Florida wedding from hundreds of miles away simply melted away and I knew I was in very good hands. She took charge during the finalization meeting with the reception restaurant, and I was able to just sit back and look forward to my wedding day. In having a destination wedding, the days leading up to the wedding can be hectic and busy, but Carrie relieved all that stress and pressure and totally took the reins so that I could relax and see the fruits of my planning labor, not to mention enjoy my vacation!

Her team members Jackie and Ashley were equally outstanding and enjoyable to work with! They were responsible for the decoration set-up for our beach ceremony and restaurant courtyard decor, and so much more, and I was extremely pleased with their work and how they pulled all my little decorative elements together.

The whole team executed my event flawlessly, and I don't think I could ever thank Carrie enough for the role she played in making my wedding the fabulous and memorable event that it turned out to be.

If you are looking for a DOC, do not hesitate to contact Carrie and see for yourself how amazing she is. You will blown away by this gal!!!

Carrie was a real pleasure to work with. We originally thought of hiring her just for her lighting expertise but then decided that she could be helpful when executing my vision for the big day. Her services were only for helping us with 2 vendors so she worked out the table linen and flowers. We did a lot of communication over the email but only met once in person to talk about the wedding details. She was really good about getting back to me. She is a really nice person and we got a long really well. We did have one issue the day of, the flowers. She works with her own florist, Ava. Our Arch did look very beautiful, made of curly willow and roses although wilted but hard to notice from far away. Our centerpieces didnt look like they were suppose to, with crystal tightly wrapped around them, almost choking the flowers, and they were peach. Our colors were light pink and fuchsia, not peach?? The bridemaids bouquets were perfect but my bouquet wasnt the one I picked out, miscommunication somewhere. The roses were suppose to be pink but were peachish pink and not the hot pink roses with feathers I picked out. Carrie fixed it and her and her florist ran out to Publix and got the right color and redid the bouquet with "fresh" flowers. So in the end it did all work out minus the centerpieces. Carrie did make sure the rest of the day went smoothly and was very professional. I do recommend Carrie for her wedding services. I do think she needs to double check all those fine details for what she does plan so that it is the exact vision of the bride and maybe even hire a new florist. No bride should get wilted flowers.

Carrie Darling Events responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your comments! We were happy to be a part of your day!! I am truly sorry that you were not 100% satisfied! The bouquet was created based on the signed contract, and I know it was changed after the fact a couple times. I apologize that the final design was not what you wanted. I am glad you were happy with the bouquet we re-created on the Wedding day. We did actually did go to a trusted florist in Bonita for additional hot pink roses, and not to Publix. I assure you I would not do that. As far as the quality for the rest of the flowers, they were fresh. With any natural product, any length of time in the Florida sun can cause them to wilt a bit. At any rate, I hope the day was filled with positive memories for years to come!! Again, I am sorry for any inconveniences!

If I could give Carried Away Events 100 stars I would! If you are thinking about hiring a coordinator hire Carrie! She is AMAZING! I spent over a year planning every detail of our wedding and wouldnt allow anyone help me. A few weeks before the wedding I started thinking about hiring a DOC so we could relax and enjoy our day. I was very apprehensive letting someone assist with our baby. After speaking with Carrie on the phone all my worries were gone. After meeting her I was already in relax mode. She was excellent, she paid attention to every detail! It's amazing how someone can just see "your vision"! She was always available with any question and thought. Our coordinator at the Country Club loved working with her! Her amazing team set up and ran our wedding seamlessly! We did not have one problem throughout our day, the entire day was 100% on schedule! They exceeded our expectations, if we were to ever plan another event I would hire Carrie without a hesitation. She was such a dream to work with. So if your searching for the "perfect day" Carrie and her team are a MUST HAVE! Worth every penny and some! My only regret is that I didn't hire her sooner :).

I spent over a year planning every detail of our wedding and wouldnt allow anyone help me. A few weeks before the wedding I started thinking about hiring a DOC so we could relax and enjoy our day. I was very apprehensive letting someone assist with our baby. After speaking with Carrie on the phone all my worries were gone. After meeting her I was already in relax mode. She was excellent, she paid attention to every detail! It's amazing how someone can just see "your vision"! She was always available with any question and thought. Our coordinator at the Country Club loved working with her! Her amazing team set up and ran our wedding seamlessly! We did not have one problem throughout our day, the entire day was 100% on schedule! They exceeded our expectations, if we were to ever plan another event I would hire Carrie without a hesitation. She was such a dream to work with. So if your searching for the "perfect day" Carrie and her team are a MUST HAVE! Worth every penny and some! My only regret is that I didn't hire her sooner :).

Never in my wildest dreams would I have been able to plan a winter wonderland wedding in five days!! Carrie took care of everything!! She transformed the room with the flowers as did her uplighting! Her creativity brought the penthouse to life. She actually helped me to theme our day as "winter wonderland". The photgapher was a referal and she was so fun! Carrie officiated our ceramony and made my husband and I feel as though it was a wedding for a Prince and Princess! She even wrote our vows, I tear up just thinking of how special she made us feel! I would not change one thing thanks to her!! My day was perfect:)

Carrie and her team were amazing! We live in NYC and our wedding was in Sanibel Island, Florida. We were nervous about hiring a planner we had yet to meet, but during our first conversation over the phone we knew Carrie was the type of planner we were looking for -- one who was passionate about her work, thorough in her planning, and extremely organized. Carrie went above and beyond to make our wedding weekend perfect and we are thrilled that we hired her. Throughout our wedding planning, Carrie stayed on top of every detail and she was very responsive. Whenever we emailed or called her with questions, she would respond immediately. Furthermore, Carrie is very reasonably priced compared to many other wedding planners; you will not find better value for the effort and work. We highly recommend Carrie.

When we decided to get married, we weren’t sure exactly what we needed. We were aware of the big items such as a caterer, DJ, photographer but didn’t really know where to look. We attended a wedding show and it became clear that we might need some assistance from a wedding planner (which was an item we thought was an additional expense we didn’t want).

When searching for a wedding planner, we found it difficult as the pricing and services were vague and we would need to meet with the planner before even having an estimate of the cost even with the detailed email of what we thought we needed from our planner (someone to possibly help select vendors and help with the day of the wedding). This is where Carrie greatly differed from everyone. She provided us with different service packages that already had pricing. This helped us immensely in our decision making as we could understand the differing levels of service. Our first meeting with Carrie was also very productive as we were able to better envision Carrie’s role in our wedding according to different scenarios.

Carrie was a fountain of information as well. She provided recommendations and was knowledgeable of the wedding industry in Southwest Florida. We could not have been happier with the florist and caterer that Carrie recommended. Carrie also has a keen sense of style. We provided her with the basic idea of how the reception site should look and she provided us sharp insights such as utilizing uplighting and votive candles to enhance the mood. The room itself looked fantastic and looked like we had spent much more money decorating than we had.

The best part of using Carried Away Events was that Carrie treated us as if we were her number one client. She provided exceptional service and made us feel at ease. If you are having a wedding, you should definitely talk to Carrie.

For brides looking for a peace of mind and being able to enjoy your day - Carrie is a must! I had contacted Carrie a few months prior to my wedding for day of services. She was not only very responsive, but very flexible in making time to work with me long distance. Carrie was wonderful in helping me with local vendors in Florida, while I was in Chicago. I received positive compliments from all my vendors that she coordinated with.

It was apparent how passionate Carrie is about her work! She was open to providing unbiased feedback and help all along the way. The week of my wedding - Carrie had prepared a detailed timeline that was so helpful and really kept me organized. For our rehearsal, Carrie ensured that everything ran smoothly and I didn't have to do much at all. The day of the wedding was absolutely perfect - my husband and I didn't have to think about anything but enjoying each moment. Carrie and her team took care of every little detail.

Our wedding day was everything we both could have wished for and appreciate everything Carrie did to ensure that our night was perfect. As I look back now, even though I had over two years for planning our 10/10/10 wedding - I could not have done it without Carrie!

When I first met then Carrie Rosenow, it was close to her own wedding date. I was immediately very impressed with how she managed to coordinate her own wedding and few others (including ours). Carrie not only became my wedding coordinator, she became my friend. I felt very comfortable contacting her at any time for questions about wedding colors, flowers and even hair styles. She was always very sweet when answering me. When I was stressed, she calmed me down. When I wasn’t sure if something was right, she always knew exactly what to say. Before she left for her own wedding and honeymoon, she ensured that our wedding things were in order. A small detail like that not only showed me who Carrie was as a coordinator, but as a person. It was then that I knew that I had made a great decision in choosing her as our wedding coordinator.
Carrie, now known as Carrie Darling, will treat your wedding as if it was her own and will make certain that everything is perfect and beautiful. Carrie will do whatever it takes to make sure your wedding day is perfect and as stress free as humanly possible! You, as a bride, NEED her and her team by your side on your wedding day!!!

We suppose that the best endorsement we could give Carrie and Carried Away Events at this point is to say that if we had to do it all over again, we would definitely use them again! It is also very important to note that we had a “destination wedding”, making Carrie’s job all the more difficult. Carrie Darling is an amazing wedding coordinator. She goes above and beyond in coordinating your wedding. She is the consummate professional at all times, and is on top of every detail. She always maintained communication and followed up with us and with every vendor, and always had an answer to all our questions. ;-) AND, most importantly... she was ALWAYS available for us! She is the person you need to have coordinating your wedding.

During the wedding coordination process, she demonstrated her passion not only for weddings, but also for the bride. She gives you her advice; however, she never imposes her opinion. That's a good thing! If you have experienced this with different vendors, you will understand what we mean when we say that! LOL
Carrie is a very organized and detail oriented, but her most valuable asset is her ability to be creative and communicate that to her client. We assure you that she will provide beautiful ideas for your wedding.

We were very impressed with Carrie’s professionalism and orderly timelines. She contacted every vendor and organized the event and times with all of them.
The day of the wedding, Carrie and her team were absolutely amazing. They got control of the event from the onset allowing us to relax, enjoy the day, and not have to worry about anything. In other words, they knew what we wanted and made it happen.
We were extremely pleased having her as our wedding coordinator and we strongly recommend her for your wedding.

Carried Away Events helped to make our wedding day even more special than we ever could have imagined. Carrie has a true passion for event planning. With Carrie's help of taking care of the details before, after and during the wedding took so much stress off my husband and I so we could truly enjoy our wedding day. When we originally hired Carrie it was only for the day of the event but after meeting with her a few times she had such wonderful ideas to make our wedding unique. She always seemed to have a new idea that we would have never thought of. I'm not sure about other people but it seemed to us that there are just too many things to take care of without some help. With all the things going on it was a blessing to have someone who cared about our day bieng as perfect as we did. Carried Away Events really tied our theme together and made our day amazing!

The best event planner in Southwest Florida. Very professional, thourugh, and extremely creative. She took my ideas and expanded on them 10 fold. Walking into the reception was like walking into a dream. Everything was accounted for and I did not have to worry about a thing. Everything was taken care of for us and ran smoothly!! If you are looking to get rid of your wedding worries at a reasonable price, this is the vendor for you. The wedding went exactly as planned, and we wouldn't have changed a thing, as we were not disappointed. She delivered exactly what we talked about. The planner has an extensive album of creative events she has hosted(weddings and other events), very impressive!! Would count on her to plan a party with any theme!! Highly recommended!!

Having Carrie as a wedding planner is like having someone who has known you for years help you with every aspect of your big day. She finds a way to truly relate to you and gives you the "Dream Wedding" you've always wanted. She is extremely accessible and is always there when you have any questions-whether it be picking out favors, table linens, or advice on how to decorate your reception site. She takes the ideas that you have, and with her creativity, turns them into something beautifully extravagant!! Any "bride-to-be" planning her wedding knows all about the stress that comes along with it, but with Carrie as a wedding planner, that burden is completely lifted!!!

I have been to other events (birthday parties, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, etc.) organized by Carried Away Events and Carrie is truely talented in every way.

I only wish that I could have Carrie plan every major event of my life, she is an absolute dream. After deciding not to use a wedding planner through my wedding planning process, I realized I needed some extra help and expertise. I only wish that I would have realized that sooner. Carrie is extremely flexible, professional, organized, and creative. And the best feeling of all is that she truly does care about making your day be a dream day. She is on top of every detail and does not miss ANYTHING. I have attended some of Carrie's events as well and fall in love every time I see her work. Every event is so unique and equally as amazing. I would recommend Carried Away Events to everyone I know and told my husband he better make sure to use Carrie when it comes time for a Baby Shower!
