We hired Casey as a day of coordinator. We knew that we wanted our family to be able to relax and enjoy the wedding instead of worrying about the wedding weekend details. We had already made most of the wedding plans and details, Casey was there to make sure we had all our ducks in a row and any details we might have missed. Casey did an amazing job making us all feel comfortable and jumped right in. She was sweet, kind, professional, knowledgable, and fun!

Carly was our day-of planner, and she was wonderful to work with. I felt so comfortable with her, and so comforted having her there on our wedding day. She was the invisible hand keeping everything running smoothly. It was a tremendous weight off of my mother's shoulders and I am so appreciative. I highly recommend Carly and La Fete.

Amazing and talented wedding planner! Katie makes everything simple, fun and creative. After going through the initial process of looking for wedding planners, I couldn't have chosen a better person! She is truly a gem to work with and is so passionate about her work. Her team is also well organized, talented and easy to work with. She made our wedding weekend super special! #bestweddingplannerever

Casey was my lifesaver for my July 31 wedding! I was planning the wedding myself up until two weeks before when I realized I simply couldn't do it all. I contacted Katie and she immediately put Casey on the job as day-of coordinator. Both Casey and Katie were super flexible, working within my budget and at rapid-fire speed to take care of the thousand last-minute details I forgot to plan! I am most incredibly grateful to Casey for the moral support--the cheerful texts she sent, and her can-do attitude that made everything suddenly seem so much easier. It all fell into place, she contacted vendors for me, passed out the flowers to the wedding party, cleaned the chalkboard at the end of the night, and generally just solved unsolvable problems! My wedding went off without a hitch and I am so glad I used La Fete!

We hired Carly to be "the day of" wedding planner for my daughter's wedding. Carly met with us two months before the wedding and created a timeline and to do list for us to follow in the weeks leading up to the day of the wedding. It all came off without a hitch! If there were any issues that came up Carly and Cassie handled them. I felt like a guest at my own party. They were responsive, professional, flexible and did not say no to any request for help, a direction or an opinion during the entire process. We could not have done it without the help of Carly and La Fete!

Carly Abernathy with La Fete was amazing! We had her for our day-of wedding coordinator for our Carolina Inn wedding in April 2015. Carly has done tons of weddings at the Carolina Inn and knows EVERYBODY in this whole area, so had great insight into vendors and also a great relationship with our catering manager (Heidi Werner at the Carolina Inn, also amazing) and DJ (Randy Bennett with Joe Bunn DJ, fantastic). Thanks for helping to make our day run so smoothly, Carly! Would definitely recommend her to others.

Carly,
We want to thank you one million times and share with others, our wonderful experience.
We could not have asked for a more spectacular day for our daughter’s wedding. Everything went smoothly and stress free and we owe that all to Carly Abernathy and her assistant Casey. Having a weekend coordinator was a great decision… but hiring Carly was truly our BEST decision! She enabled us to relax and enjoy the most magical day. I cannot imagine how the wedding events would have gone without her!

Carly is everything we needed, all tied up in one charming package. Her organizational skills and timeline were flawless from the rehearsal to the reception. She is very professional with a delightful, playful personality and a smile that lights up the room. An excellent communicator, she makes sure everyone is informed and updated, which proved to be necessary for us, on a few occasions. She stands strong and when we had little glitches, everyone knew we could count on her to quickly resolve them. We did not have to worry about anything which was truly an unexpected blessing. To sum up, our experience with Carly…it was simply wonderful.

I'm the MOB, and we used Carly for the weekend-of coordination. The wedding was not in our home town, so we needed someone to trouble-shoot the day, at least. Carly was so helpful, upbeat, and calming about all of the weekend events. I relied on her feedback for a few vendors as I contracted with them, and then she made the schedule work. She coordinated the timeline with the vendors, especially the photographer and reception venue, and made it all look easy. She stuck to our vision, never judging or trying to persuade us to do anything more or less than we wanted. I did not have to "jump in" to take care of anything; consequently, I thoroughly enjoyed our daughter's wedding day because of Carly!

We worked with Carly, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her! She was absolutely a dream to work with! From setting up a general timeline for the wedding (so I could tell everyone when and where to be) and flawlessly executing the entire event, she was a dream come true. The day of the wedding, when my personality would have me running around like a mad woman trying to make sure things were in place and perfect, I was sipping on champagne, watching Say Yes to the Dress with my bridesmaids, growing more and more excited about marrying my husband-exactly how it should be.

Every person I spoke with pre-wedding kept saying that I should be prepared for things to go wrong, that nothing will be perfect, and that at the end of the day it's about marrying the love of your life. All of this might be correct, but Carly made sure that the day was everything I could've asked for and maybe even more. I didn't notice any slip ups, which is the sign of the DREAM coordinator!

In addition to how extremely well Carly performed day-of, she was amazing leading up to the wedding. She met with me several times to discuss my expectations and the timeline, as well as promptly responded to all emails. She is one of the most organized, upbeat individuals I have ever met and I am so glad she was a part of our big day!
