Finding new and innovative ways to express the vision of the client is the reason we took a leap of faith and launched Social Butterfly Events. Our potential customers would be anyone who has found a reason to celebrate a professional accomplishment, a rite of passage, or life changing event such as marriage.

Social Butterfly Events is THE BEST! I was lucky enough to be on site all day on Saturday for hair and makeup and got to see everything from start until finish! My wedding was everything I imagined it would be and more! I received numerous compliments about how gorgeous and perfect everything was! Many guests commented that it looked like something out of a magazine! There were even compliments of how nice the restrooms were!! From the gorgeous chandelier and lighting, to the stunning flowers, breathtaking and delicious cake, tasty food, amazing DJ, my wonderful photographer, and the little details......seriously made this event perfect. Charyl, Kaylie, Stephanie and the whole crew made my day to be the perfect day ever...even when I was running late for the ceremony!! We thank you so much for all of your hard work throughout the planning process and execution of event. It was the best day of my life!

Charyl (Social Butterfly events):

Responsiveness: Charyl was always responsive to any and all of our requests (and oh boy, did we have a lot). Another important thing to note is that Charyl just didn’t provide a quick or generic response to our questions or requests; everything was always thought out and extremely thorough.

Professionalism: Charyl is the ultimate professional and takes her role and responsibilities very seriously. However, she loves to have fun and we certainly shared many laughs throughout the entire planning process. Charyl kept in personal contact with all of our vendors to ensure everyone was on schedule. She was able to make our families feel involved while also keeping them aligned with the goal of fulfilling the BRIDE AND GROOMS vision for the wedding day.

Value: We initially met a nice lady named Charyl with an extremely engaging personality who was very confident in her wedding planning skills. Over the course of our two year planning process, we ended up getting to know each other quite well. We are beyond satisfied with our decision to go with Social Butterfly Events. We went from a meeting with a stranger to having a lifelong friend. There is no numerical value to that; we define Charyl and Social Butterfly Events as a BLESSING!

Flexibility: We knew that living in Atlanta, Georgia while planning a wedding in North Carolina would be no easy task. Going through the process alone would have definitely presented many challenges, but with Charyl by our side, we can actually say we had fun planning our big day! Charyl was always flexible and accommodating with our travel schedules.

Quality of Service: The quality of service we received from Charyl and her team was top notch. Social Butterfly events personifies quality and they will do whatever necessary to ensure that shines through on your big day!

Good luck and Happy Wedding planning!
Love, Amber and Charles (9/21/13)

Charyl of Social Butterfly Events is worth the investment! My (now) Hubby and I live in PA but wanted to have a wedding down south near my parents and could not have pulled off this wedding without her. Charyl helped us with everything from locating vendors, to tackling our indecisiveness, and setting up everything. We managed to come down to NC once during the whole year of planning to decide on a few wedding details. Charyl is highly organized and skilled at wedding planning.

Charyl of Social Butterfly Events is worth the investment! My (now) Hubby and I live in PA but wanted to have a wedding down south near my parents and could not have pulled off this wedding without her. Charyl helped us with everything from locating vendors, to tackling our indecisiveness, and setting up everything. We managed to come down to NC once during the whole year of planning to decide on a few wedding details. Charyl is highly organized and skilled at wedding planning. She made our wedding a dream come true! It was better than we could have ever imagined! She has the nicest personality of anyone I have ever met and yet she was still able to manage my enormous, wild wedding party. CHARYL IS AMAZING AND YOU SHOULD HIRE HER NOW!

Our wedding was on August 31st at the Brooklyn Arts Center in Wilmington, NC. I had always imagined eloping and my husband had always wanted to have ALL of his friends and family present. I knew I was in trouble and that I'd need some help.

Richard from the Brooklyn Arts Center recommended a few different planners in the area. My first meeting with Charyl was so much fun and I knew we would be on the same page. I stopped looking at the wedding as a terrifying, never ending to-do list and more like the Best Day Ever it could be.

Charyl and I were in touch regularly throughout the planning process. She attended all of the vendor meetings with us to make sure our voices were heard. Some vendors were pushy, and she stood her ground with the things that I really wanted. She was always patient and had great recommendations to fit our personality and style when we were indecisive.

We had agreed upon a schedule beforehand for the wedding ceremony and reception. On the day-of, she made sure everything ran smoothly throughout the night. When it was time to cut the cake, she found me and tapped me on the shoulder to remind me it was time. She was always fun and never bossy with us. Our families fell in love with her and did not have enough wonderful things to say.

I am soooooo thankful that we had Charyl as our wedding planner! As soon as we got engaged we knew we wanted to go back to the town we loved/met good ole Wilmington. And I knew who the perfect planner was! She has now been passed first from my Sister in Laws best friend to my sister in law to me!!!! She’s fun, loving, and brilliant. ;) We love her! She knows her stuff let me tell ya! As soon as we sat down and got the overall look for my wedding she went right to town. She knew all the right vendors for me and they were perfect!!! Being in Charlotte and not there in Wilmington I thought this would all be stressful and a lot to take on but Charyl was amazing and handled everything. Piece by piece it came together and was my dream wedding!! I know allot of brides say that but to know the idea of what it might look like and then to really see it on your big day and just be taken back by what you’ve always envisioned. Man! It was absolutely breathtaking and beyond perfect! She nailed it! The day could have not been more perfect and not a single thing went wrong! Our friends and family are still talking about what an amazing wedding/time they had! And I can’t thank Charyl enough for all the hard work she put into making our day perfect/fun/beautiful and all the vendors who helped make it happen as well!!!!
Much Love ~Nat & Pat~

Charyl is amazing!! My husband (so exciting) and I live in Boston and chose a destination wedding in Wilmington for our big day. I was so nervous about how this would all come together since I was unfamiliar with the area's vendors. We were married at Airlie Gardens which has very strict vendor requirements, etc. Charyl was incredible at recommending all star vendors (caterer, DJ, hair/make-up, party rentals, etc...) who could work within our budget and within the limitations of our gorgeous venue. I shared pictures of what I had envisioned and Charyl and her team delivered above and beyond what I could have dreamed. Not only is Charyl an incredible planner but she's an AWESOME person. She was so fun to work with and made every step of the planning process special. Every vendor we worked with praised Charyl for her beautiful work and fantastic personality. If you are getting married in the Wilmington area, you MUST work with Social Butterfly Events!!! No really... call her now!

Where do I even begin?!?! Charyl Williams, owner of Social Butterfly Events, made the wedding planning process not only easy, but so much fun! She is not only AMAZING at her job, but she is an AMAZING person with a a huge heart. To be honest, I thought at the beginning of the planning process that I could do it myself and did not really need a planner. HA! I kind of feel foolish for even thinking that. There are so many things that you don't know to do and Charyl knows everything! Plain and simple, our wedding would not have gone so perfectly if I did not hire Charyl and her AWESOME team :) I highly recommend Social Butterfly Events; they are simply the best!!!

Where do I even begin?! I am forever indebted to Charyl and her team at Social Butterfly Events. She made the planning process so fun and stress-free. On our initial phone consultation, I knew instantly that it was a great fit. She understood my vision and really brought it to life. It was almost like she had known me for years! I was blown away with every single idea she had. We received so many compliments on the design and detail at the wedding and reception. And I was constantly in awe in every direction I looked. Not only is Charyl hilarious, bubbly, and creative, she is also calm, which is SO incredibly important for a bride during this crazy time in her life. I always knew everything was under control and didn't need to worry about a thing. Charyl has a great relationship with so many amazing vendors - they respect her and are also friends with her, so they are willing to do anything for her and her clients. I don't live in Wilmington, so when I came to town for vendor meetings, Charyl arranges all the meetings back to back, and all I had to do was show up! If I can give other Wilmington brides one piece of advice, it is to hire Social Butterfly Events! This was the absolute best decision I made for our wedding. Adam and I will truly miss Charyl. Our meetings were always filled with laughter, and we would leave feeling like SO much had been accomplished. A million thank you's to Charyl and Social Butterfly Events!!

I don't even know where to start about all of the goodness and amazingness Charyl brought to my year + wedding planning experience! I was originally referred to Charyl by another family friend who was using her for their wedding planning experience. From our very first meeting together I knew that she was an absolute essential to my wedding, and let me tell you...SHE CERTAINLY IS!!! She made the entire, usually stressful, experience completely stressFREE! I never really had a clear mind-set of exactly what I wanted for my wedding day. I knew the colors I wanted and that I wanted a more "modern" themed decor, but as far as that, my Pinterest board was all over the place. She sat down with my husband and I and completely blew me away at every single meeting we had together! She knew when to tell me "Jamie, that wouldn't tie in with the rest of your wedding," or, "Absolutely, that is a perfect idea," and for that, I could not thank her enough! I can only imagine how much chaos my wedding would have been without her! She answered every e-mail, text, and phone call immediately and made me feel like I was the only bride she was working with throughout my entire planning process. (which certainly wasn't the case, she has several brides at once, but makes each one feel 100% important!) I could not have had the most PERFECT wedding without her! My ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception area completely took my breath away when I first glanced at it and I had countless guests telling me how gorgeous of a wedding it was! If you're looking to be a stress-free bride with the most perfect wedding, Charyl is your girl!

She made last minute phone calls, set up centerpieces, and made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time.

They were very quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had with my wedding. On the day of my wedding, I felt like everything went very smoothly and Charyl made certain to stick to a schedule ( which I like because I'm a teacher)! Her staff were very professional at the wedding as well. I have recommended her services, and will continue too! Thank you for making my day special!

We had a slight mis-understanding at the last minute with the party supply company and my mother, and within about twenty minutes, Charyl had the problem solved! She was so pleasant to work with and she really took the ball with everything. I didn't feel like I had to worry about a single thing with Charyl at the reigns!

She has a unique talent for what she does and I cannot tell you how much calmer and more at ease I felt knowing that she was there to handle all of the things that can and inevitably will go wrong on your wedding day.

We wanted to plan and do everything ourselves. But living two hours away from Wilmington, it quickly became difficult. We looked around and priced a few different planners. But Social Butterfly Events was recommended to us, plus she was the nicest planner we spoke to when initially scouting out a planner. We met with her, we clicked, we liked her, she understood our vision of the reception, and we were ready to roll. Charyl did it all! She brought everything I was envisioning together to make it work, made breathtaking pinwheels and backdrops, made everything run smoothly the whole day. Everything was perfect, and I know without her, it would not have been.

Living so far away from our wedding location concerned my husband and I, so we decided that hiring an event coordinator was the best way to go! Charyl and Heather from Social Butterfly events were absolutely amazing. They were very responsive, guided us through vendors, and made sure that our wedding day was nothing but perfect! I would reccommend the Social Butterly team to anyone!

Charyl of Social Butterfly Events is an incredible wedding planner. We had the type of wedding where we had to bring in every type of vendor - we loved that we got to choose every detail but it was an incredible amount of work to coordinate everything. Charyl was incredibly skilled at both coordinating, helping me find vendors, and brainstorming solutions. We had a very specific vision and budget, and she made our dream wedding come true. She is hysterical, which helped diffuse my stress, and she always gave me good guidance with the caveat, "It is your wedding, so if you really want this, we will make it happen." She always listened and validated my concerns and wishes. People who attended our wedding said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been too, and some of our vendors even told us, "Weddings just don't get better than this." I really feel that we have Charyl and her staff to thank. Our "Central Park Bicycle Ride" theme went off without a hitch, and it was a magical night. PS Charyl's partner, Heather Ivady, from The Paper Butterfly, did all of our invitations, programs, escort cards, table signs, etc. They were amazing and made our entire theme come to life. Both lovely ladies have incredible personalities and made our wedding planning so much fun. We are so grateful to them!

If you need an event planner you can trust to create a beautiful and fun event and take the reigns the day-of so you don’t have to stress, you need to hire SBE! My fiancé and I decided to hire a wedding planner because I was busy finishing law school and he frequently works long hours. Our #1 criteria was to find someone we could trust to point us to great and trustworthy vendors, make sure we didn’t miss anything in the planning process, and essentially take over everything the week of the wedding. We did a lot of research and made several phone calls before picking Charyl at Social Butterfly Events, trusting that she could deliver, and she certainly did.

Charyl and the rest of the Social Butterfly team helped make our entire wedding week perfect. Charyl recommended excellent vendors (even for the rehearsal dinner, which she didn’t have to do!) and, after we made our selections with our chosen vendors and handled the bills, she took the lead on coordinating with them. Charyl made sure we didn’t forget any of the details like the many rentals necessary at a reception, and she provided plenty of assistance in design decisions while still allowing me to take the lead in developing our wedding style. I stated that the week of the wedding was perfect and not just the wedding itself because we were incredibly busy and needed her to take over that week. Charyl made our lives so much easier by wrapping up all the loose ends and putting the entire wedding together. We didn’t have to stress about anything!

As for the final product, the wedding was even more beautiful and seamless than we expected. I was quite nervous about the design because I am not a designer but I wanted to style the wedding myself. The Social Butterfly team brought everything together flawlessly both in assembly and in the use of certain SBE rentals that Charyl knew would be the perfect additions to our aesthetic. Charyl kept us on point throughout the ceremony and reception without being overbearing or pushy in the least. My new husband and I—and our wedding party, family, and guests—have been raving about how wonderful the entire wedding was. If you want to have a fun and fabulous event without the stress, you need to hire SBE!

If you’re wondering about the 4.5 for “Responsiveness”, that is because in the first four or five months of planning (out of 10), response time was sometimes up to a week or a bit more. In our fields that is slow. However, their response time was the same or better than most vendors we worked with, so perhaps response time in the wedding industry is slow relative to other industries.

Charyl was a dream come true to me! She made my wedding day the best day of my life, and I can not thank her enough! I had absolutely no stress on my wedding day because I knew that she was in charge and she would handle any hiccups and make my wedding day wonderful. She certainly delivered! The wedding space that she created looked better than anything I had envisioned in my dreams! When I walked into the reception space I actually had goosebumps looking around and knowing that this was MY wedding! It was stunning! She helped me find the perfect color combinations, layout, details, and splendor. She was beyond a pleasure to work with - she is friendly creative, hysterically funny, and a true professional at what she does! Her love of weddings shows through in her work! I honestly know that my wedding would not have been as amazing and perfect as it was if it were not for her. I would recommend her to any and every bride looking for an excellent coordinator to make their dream wedding a real and stress free reality!! Thank you Charyl and Social Butterfly Events - you rock!!

I hired Social Butterfly to help me in planning my destination wedding. I wanted a planner because I knew that planning a wedding from so far away would not be easy and I thought it would make the planning process less stressful. Unfortunately they added a great deal of stress. After meeting them for the first time a year before the wedding they told us they were going to book the two local trollies in town to ensure we would get them. They never did and when the time came we had to book a charter bus to take guests from the ceremony site to the reception venue. This caused a great deal of extra time, stress, and money. I rarely would get responses from emails I would send them with questions or concerns, even though my contract stated "unlimited calls and meetings" were provided. Because I was so far away, I only needed to meet with them a few times, so I would have thought the few emails I did send during the planning would be answered promptly. Come wedding day, they did a great job of doing everything I wanted. It was the lack of communication throughout the planning process that made this a negative experience for me.

Social Butterfly Events responded with the following comments:

I am sorry that you feel this way about your experience with Social Butterfly Events. Unfortunately the trolley company had been booked months before we had ever talked about them so this wasn't due to a lack of trying! I hope that you enjoyed your wedding day and could see we went above and beyond our contractual obligations on your day to make sure you enjoyed your day!

Where do I begin...I should probably start by saying "WOW"! I met with several planners, but when I sat down at my first meeting with Charyl, at Social Butterfly, there was no question who I would hire. The whole team at Social Butterfly were with me every step of the way! Through every appointment, decision, and the final wedding weekend! After you have gone through the wedding process every bride knows that a wedding is so much more than just a fancy party where you give out free drinks! Social Butterfly provided so much more than just planning. They made the whole process so much fun and the wedding weekend so seamless, I never had to lift a finger! It was truly the most beautiful event I had ever been too, I couldn't believe it actually was my wedding! If you are considering going with anyone else...don't!

To say that there was a connection after I met with the Social Butterfly Events team is an understatement….it was more like after 5 minutes, I knew that they were a perfect fit for me and my wedding! I’m not like most brides, I had my venue picked out and even some vendors booked, but I had a vision that I quite couldn’t put into place myself and I knew that the team at SBE would be able to make my vision come to life. I was not disappointed at any point during the process. Charyl and her team were extremely attentive in booking appointments and contacting vendors on my behalf. I was also lucky enough to also get to work with Heather and the Paper Butterfly who designed my unique invitations that received rave reviews from both local and out of town guests. The unique approach with the ability to custom design to fit the theme of my wedding was so much better than using the canned templates at stationery stores. The SBE team also suggested vendors and options for things that I had not yet booked like florals and lighting. The exceptional service that Charyl and the SBE team provided made me feel like I was their only client even though I know they were working with many other brides. I didn’t have to worry about a thing for the rehearsal or the day of, the SBE team took care of it all and I was able to relax and enjoy everything at my wedding. Even with the challenge of a crazy rainstorm, SBE made some last minute adjustments and the event space turned out as perfect as I had imagined. Their attention to detail, event management and design assistance is exceptional!! I’m proud to be a part of the SBE family and I would definitely recommend the SBE team for your most important event!

Love the ladies of Social Butterfly Events! From the very beginning they were giving me wonderful ideas and helping me with any questions I had. They were always easy to get in touch with and responded promptly. The day of my wedding was amazing. Everything ran so smooth and on time. I even had a guest show up late who said he thought he would be on time because weddings never start on time...mine did! If there were any issues the day of, I didn't know about them. Charyl and Heather handled everything with grace and the utmost professional attitudes. They also made me feel so special, like I was the most beautiful bride they had ever seen :) I would absolutely recommend them and I already have. Thank you for everything ladies!

P.S. This review is coming from another wedding professional.

Charyl and Heather are professional and super fun and truly helped my husband and I plan the best day of our lives! They took the time to understand our vision and get to know us as a couple. They helped us pick vendors that fit our style and our budget. They scheduled tons of tastings and meetings and went with us to all of them. Even though they had tons of weddings going at once, they made us feel so special and unique through the whole process. We are 100% confident that our day would not have been as perfect and put together as it was if they had not helped us orchestrate everything!

Where do I begin to review Charyl and Heather and all that is Social Butterfly Events? Do I start with how these two amazing women custom made haybale covers (for the haybales that I wanted...which they found, procured, and delivered)? Or maybe it'd better to start by commenting on their extensive network of trusted vendors, all of whom took the time to tell me "how awesome" my planners were, and all of whom were willing to bend over backwards to help the Social Butterfly girls and their bride? Perhaps the best route is to begin with how comfortable and cared for Charyl and Heather made my husband and I (and our whole families) feel, from the first phone conversation with Charyl until heather ushered me to the top of the aisle on our wedding day? Any way I go about it, Social Butterfly rocks. They beyond rock. They took our dreams of what we wanted for our wedding-however out-there and vague they were- and made them into an incredible celebration of joy and gratitude that at once honored who we are as wacky individuals, and also radiated with the importance and tradition that should surround any wedding. Working with Charyl and Heather you get the sense that these girls care about your MARRIAGE and not just your WEDDING. Will they get all excited with you when you find the perfect flowers for your bouquet? Heck yes! Are they going to handle business and keep things running PERFECTLY on your big day? Absolutely. Drunk toasters and all. Marc and I consider these ladies great friends, and we'd get married all over again, with these two, in a heartbeat.

I would not have changed anything about my wedding. It had the atmosphere and vibe that I had invisioned for my beach wedding, all thanks to Social Butterfly Events. The only advice I can give to future brides is hire a wedding planner!!!! The last thing your wedding should do is cause you stress. The only real stress I ever felt was over the possiabilty of a looming hurricane! I would also tell future brides the I do's are the only thing that is important everything else is just details!

Charyl and Heather were very easy to work with and very responsive to my questions and concerns. They suggested excellent vendors to work with and did the detail work for me. Their "day of" organization of the rehearsal dinner and the wedding was excellent. They took care of details I didn't even know about and made everything look seamless. They are great professionals and I give them my highest recommendation.

Their "day of" organization of the rehearsal dinner and the wedding was excellent. They took care of details I didn't even know about and made everything look seamless. They are great professionals and I give them my highest recommendation. Read less

Charyl & Heather came highly recommended. Originally, I was not planning on hiring wedding planners, but my mom & I lived a good 4 hours from our wedding location. It was certainly one of the best decisions I made to help get in gear for planning.

These Ladies really helped to calm my nerves & ensure that my wedding would be everything I envisioned. There were many memorable moments & conversations before the Big Day & they handled it all with ease. I couldn't have asked for a better team! Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart!

Social Butterfly Events came highly recommended by a trusted vendor. I hired Charyl and Heather with Social Butterfly Events to help coordinate our big day and I'm so glad I did. I was nervous about all of the details I had been planning for a year to come together and they went above and beyond to ensure that they did. They eased any nervousness I had and we had a great time working together. They were both very professional, personable, and I would without a doubt, hire them again for another event. Heather did an amazing job designing our programs and putting the finishing touches on our reception venue, making it so beautiful. Charyl was a joy to work with, very organized and responsive. If you work with them, you will be in great hands!

Social Butterfly Events is amazing! They helped me with all my "day of" wedding plans, and I cannot express how much I needed them, and am so glad to have had them. I am a Catering Manager, and thought I could do it all myself. It was like a burden lifted off my shoulders when Charyl and Heather helped me on my wedding day. I didn't have to think about anything on my wedding day other then having a great time, because they did it all for me! If I can give any piece of advice to other brides it would be hire a wedding planner, and hire Social Butterfly Events!

My wedding was on May 7, 2010.
The ladies of Social Butterfly were great to work with through the planning process all the way to the big day. They were in regular contact with me, and kept me on track with bride tasks so I wouldnt have so much to do in the last few weeks.

As far as value, I believe that this service paid for itself. SB offers the experience to steer you away from less-dependable or overpriced vendors, preventing possible catastophies or budget issues. They also saved me a great deal of time on the wedding day confirming vendors and decorating so I was able to have leisurely time with my bridesmaids for fun, memorable moments, rather than nervous preparation.

On the actual wedding day, the venue was decorated beautifully, all my requests were taken care of, and they were there to remind me of things I wanted to do at the reception while maintaing a low profile.

Im not sure what happened after the wedding as my family, friends and I were not a part of the clean-up process. I can tell you that I met Charyl a few days later and she had all of my "left behind" belongings! What a saint.

What sets SB apart from the other planners in Southeastern NC is that they are not rigid or stuffy old-schoolers with a mission to have a cookie-cutter wedding. They work with you to navigate through wedding ettiquette, while ensuring you have the wedding of your dreams either traditional or casual. They truly do understand the modern bride.
