Naturally Yours Events is an eco-friendly wedding and event planning company committed to planning events that are unique, stress free, and absolutely fun. Our owner, Carlene Smith, started Naturally Yours Events in 2011 to help couples plan weddings that were less wasteful but still full of their personality and style. No matter your style, budget or what planning stage you are in, our team will take the time to get to know you in order to ensure your special day is exactly as you imagined and more!

We have worked with all types of couples, and all types of budgets, and even love to throw some baby showers and other social events on the calendar. You see, we are anything but cookie-cutter planners and think outside the box to create unique and memorable events. I would even say we’re a little quirky (in a fun way).

Need help with all the details? From conception to creation, Naturally Yours Events can handle every aspect of your special day. We have several packages to choose from, or you can create something truly custom to fit your needs. Whether you’re looking for day-of coordination or full planning services, we will work with you to create an event that is incredibly fun and naturally yours! Read less

Jessie and Lauren were a great addition to our wedding. We really enjoyed having them coordinate our wedding. They did a great job in editing our vision and making sure it worked well with the size of the room as well as the size of our wedding (200+ people). They were also able to create a customized package for us in which they took over email communication with my vendors 1 month out so that I could focus on other commitments. Jessie was very thorough in emails to my vendors and myself. For anyone planning a wedding, I would recommend NYE in a heartbeat.

Although we had a limited budget for our wedding, we knew hiring a coordinator would be a worthwhile investment. And Jessie from Naturally Yours Events did not disappoint! After speaking with several wedding planning companies, we chose NYE. Not only did they have the most reasonable price, but we were impressed by how thoughtful Carlene (the owner) and Jessie were as they took the time to learn more about us and our wedding plans.

My husband and I wanted our wedding to be an intimate and fun celebration with friends and family, but we had a hard time putting all the different ideas together. Jessie was the perfect coordinator. She was open yet decisive as we bounced our many ideas off of her. She had the knowledge and creativity to translate many of our personal touches into reality. And most of all, she was a calming presence in the weeks leading up to the wedding, which really allowed us to be present and mindful on the big day.

Looking back, we are truly grateful to Jessie for helping us stay on track (and sane) during the planning process. We cannot think of anyone better than NYE as our coordinator!

I had a five year vow renewal/first wedding reception celebration (complicated circumstances) earlier this year and Carlene immediately got what I was going for from our first phone call. She worked with me through a sprained ankle (even touring venues on crutches! good thing I was looking for accessible places) and had us so well on track I barely had anything to do the week of the event. She got my prickly vendors to play nice. I'm a worrier, but the evening went so smoothly I didn't even notice the time fly by! Highly, highly recommended.

When the planner provided by our venue turned out to be below par, my husband and I made the decision to look for a Day of Coordinator for our wedding. We were both unsure about spending money we weren't already counting on spending, but once we met Carlene and her team we knew it would be more than worth it. Looking back -- I would have spent double Carlene's rate if I had to. That's just how good she was and how intrical she was in pulling off our dream wedding.

As a Day-of client, I assumed we would have minimal contact until right before the wedding. I was wrong about that. Carlene worked with us frequently for almost 2 months leading up to the big day. When our wedding came I knew everything would be taken care of and all I had to do was enjoy the day. It was priceless to be able to enjoy the day and know that someone else has got it covered.

If you're on the fence about hiring a DOC, just go for it. It will be the best money you ever spent. Go with Carlene and Naturally Yours Events and you will be golden.

I'm a very selective person and didn't want a typical wedding planner, so finding a planner that met my particular needs was especially challenging. Hiring Carlene was the best decision I ever made. I was married last September and my guests are still raving about how amazing everything turned out, especially how seamless everything went. We owe that all to Carlene and her team who didn't miss a beat. If you're looking for someone who is extremely organized, up front and honest, unique and easy to communicate with look no further. Carlene will make the wedding planning process a little less stressful, recommend great vendors to work with all while keeping you on a timely schedule and within your budget. NYE is a great company and Carlene is worth every dime!

We got engaged last March and had no idea where to start with the wedding planning process. A friend of our referred us to Carlene at Naturally Yours Events, and we're so glad we found her! From that very 1st meeting in April to our wedding a few weeks ago, Carlene and her staff were extremely organized, punctual, and thorough. She provides each couple with a "Planning Tool" which is broken down into tabs for budget, monthly to do lists, etc. It was invaluable! And she is there to guide you along each and every step, month-to-month or even day-to-day. She organized meetings with vendors, met with us in-person on a regular basis to check-in, provided tips and suggestions throughout the process but at the same time always respected our vision for the big day. She is very quick to respond to e-mails, and she helped save a lot on various items through her connections in the industry and her numerous budget-savvy tips. On top of all that, she made the wedding planning process as stress-free as possibly could be. There is a LOT that goes into it! Haha. Our wedding last month went very smooth and without a hitch and we owe a lot of that to the work of this company. It was so nice not to have to think about anything the day of. Thank you NYE! We appreciate all your help.

I know exactly why you're here. You're planning your wedding and wondering if you really need a day-of coordinator's help........

I'm here to tell you, yes, yes you do. I was just like you, trying to decide if a day of coordinator would really be worth it, and honestly, hiring Naturally Yours was probably the smartest money we spent on the wedding. Thanks to them I had the wedding of my dreams on 12/13/14. They were able to take a wedding that could have been absolute chaos (smaller venue holding both ceremony and reception in the winter) and turn it into a dream.

I originally met with Carlene and immediately liked her and the premise of Naturally Yours. Unfortunately she was already booked for a wedding on my day, but their up-and-coming planner Jessie was still available and thank god she was. Let me tell you, there are not enough superlatives out there for me to express how wonderful Jessie is. She is incredibly nice and friendly but will absolutely kick ass to get your wedding perfect for you. She wants to know exactly how you envision your day to be and will work her hardest to make sure that vision comes true.

I'm definitely what you would call a Type A personality, so at first I had a bit of trouble handing over the reigns. Once I got to know Jessie and realized how awesome she was at this whole wedding planning stuff, I had no problem trusting her to take care of all the details and she did such an amazing job. She set up our decorations beautifully - I actually gasped when I first walked into the venue, I was so shocked at how great it looked. Also, she took care of everything. I'm sure things went wrong that day because there were a ton of moving pieces, but I don't know of a single one. Jessie just handled everything (even making sure my wine glass was adequately filled) so I was able to relax and actually enjoy all of my wedding.

Jessie was great throughout the whole process, but especially on the day of our wedding, she was absolutely on top of everything! Not only were there no hiccups, but the handful of last minute items that needed to be taken care of were just done, and we didn't even bat an eyelash. We had a fantastic wedding, everybody had a wonderful time, and it was just smooth sailing for the whole thing! Tons of kudos!

I only have one regret when using Naturally Yours for my wedding, and that's not hiring them from the beginning. I purchased the "Month Of" package, and I quickly realized that I should have gotten them far sooner. Jessie was our primary planner and she was an absolutely joy to work with. She's like a walking, smiling, always planning cupcake. She embraced our vision and ideas while giving us suggestions/seriously expert advice on things we hadn't even considered. She was invaluable in keeping us on schedule with our tasks and coordinating with our other vendors. The day of the wedding, if there was a problem, I had no idea. Jessie and Carlene handled everything deftly and professionally, which is exactly what we wanted them to do. If there's another chance for me to work with them again, I'll do it in a heartbeat!

Carlene was truly invaluable to us during our entire planning process. From recommendations to scheduling, budgeting and organization, we were kept on track and sane. She reminded us of numerous details that we would never have thought of on our own. She found us an amazing photographer and a wonderful DJ! One thing that was especially great was that Carlene was able to set up all of our initial venue visits for one day so that one of our moms (who is not local) could come in and be there with us. Also, our wedding day was seamless, I don't think it could have gone any smoother! She was a joy to work with and made our wedding a complete success.
