Amazing experience with Charyl and her team! I couldn't have had my dream wedding without them. Not only are they excellent at what they do, but they are kind, fun, and caring too! I strongly recommend their services to all!

How do I even begin? Honestly, my wedding day was amazing all because of my amazing wedding planner, Charyl. There is no doubt that I am Type A personality. Match that with planning a wedding several states away. Eeeek. Charyl was quick to respond even from the beginning. I worry about things way ahead of time (thanks to the Knot wedding checklist). Charyl was always very patient and more than willing to accommodate us. She scheduled everything for us and met with us on most of our appointments. She provided helpful direction whenever I was in doubt. For example, I found a beautiful bridesmaid dress that was white and gold. Not the typical color that bridesmaids are seen in. I showed Charyl my inspiration and she was inspired too. It feels great when someone gets excited about a small detail just as much as the bride does.

On the wedding day, we had a couple minor hiccups. First off, my junior bridesmaid/cousin's zipper decided to break. Everyone in the bridal party was freaking out. I simply called Charyl and she came right over and fixed the problem. She has the amazing ability to make you feel calm. She brings a small dose of humor to make sure you are always smiling. Even though she was planning for 2 weddings that day, it felt like she was always accommodating/checking in on me in every way.

It is obvious that Charyl not only is the best but also works with the best. Since her and the other vendors work so often together, you can certainly see the perks when it all comes together. Everyone simply flows together. They have a plan before there is even a problem.

There is no doubt in my mind that my wedding day would not have been as amazing if it wasn't for Charyl. It makes a world of a difference when you can tell that someone truly loves their job.

Charyl was the best part of our wedding from beginning to end besides the end result of getting married. When my husband and I got engaged we had no idea where to start. We knew we wanted to get married in Wilmington since we had our first date there but that also meant a destination wedding since we lived in Charlotte. I researched planners in Wilmington and from our first conversation I knew Charyl was going to be ours. Charyl is such a warm person and really listens to what you say and how you imagine your day to be. She put together all of my vendors for our wedding and set up meetings with each one. She also made sure to be there during the first meeting and that definitely made my husband and I feel good about the whole process because she thought of questions that we forgot to ask. I know most people say planning a wedding is stressful but honestly I enjoyed every moment and 95% of that is because of Charyl Williams. Our wedding day turned out to be immaculate and everything my husband and I envisioned. We still have family and friends talking about our wedding day and how it was the best wedding they've ever been to. If you are looking for a planner I highly recommend Charyl because we not only walked away with a fantastic wedding but we also walked away gaining another friend in Wilmington.

Amazing! Charyl was there every step of the way during our planning process. She helped me stay on track and keep everything organized. She calmed all of my planning nerves. The big day went by with no hiccups and I owe most of that to Charyl. I highly suggest Social Butterfly Events.

Please do not let Charyl from Social Butterfly Events work on your wedding. Simply put, my wedding was great despite Charyl, not because of her. A few anecdotes:

- Leading up to wedding my husband and I had to catch her mistakes multiple times with the caterer and the rental company (she blamed these mistakes on her interns instead of taking responsibility and fixing them)
- At 4 pm (wedding start time) she was found by the mother of the bride in the kitchen, eating instead of coordinating leading to an incorrect procession and improper seating of guests
-She was late to the rehearsal (last to arrive and first to leave) and to the venue on the day of
- She did not assist me with any unloading of the car or opening of boxes despite the rain leading to me being late to get ready
- She did not bring a box for the cards as promised leading to several gifts being lost
- And to top it off, she left early. This caused my husband to have to coordinate the shuttles and my car keys were lost in the morning

But the worst event was when she brought the bartender to me (who didn't want to set up the bar we paid for outside) because of the possibility of rain during the ceremony. I hired a coordinator so that I wouldn't have to have this stern discussion with a vendor while getting my hair done.

Her performance was completely unacceptable throughout the entire event. Do yourself a favor and please do not hire Charyl. She did her absolute best to do as little as possible leading up and on the day of the wedding. She was by far my worst vendor for the wedding.

I knew, instantly, that I wanted to work with Charyl because of our first phone call. She has such a warm personality and she definitely talks with a smile. She helped me relax and become less stressed with her guidance and her help with the vendors. She made my wedding day very enjoyable and I am so thankful! Love love love me some Charyl.

Working with Charyl was very confusing. I was the MOB, event planner and organizer of our daughter's wedding. We coordinated the entire event from Florida. We hired her to direct the wedding and were given a contract outlining the things she would do. Things started out great. She voluntarily recommended vendors but when we asked questions, lectured us on how she had gone above and beyond by doing so. We had no problem with boundaries and understood from the beginning what we were hiring her to do. We used the photographer that she recommended and had an awful experience with him. She ended up spending a lot of time mediating the situation because he would not respond to us. Once we got that cleared up, she seemed to not want to talk to us and we felt essentially punished for the fact that he caused her to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to get him to respond to our calls and emails. She made it clear that she was not getting paid to handle this situation. We were always reluctant to call after that as we felt so bad about the situation. To be clear, she was in no way responsible for what happened with the photographer. Things went fine for the ceremony rehearsal but she did not want to rehearse the entrances for the reception. Unfortunately, we didn't know in what order to stand and ended up offsides when the bride and groom did their first dance. Our fault, but if we had run through it, we would have been in proper position for the photos. Certainly, the value of a director cannot be understated. We had a series of unfortunate events that were out of both of our hands. Honestly, the only advice that can be given on this is to have mutual understanding of expectations. If recommending vendors is a stretch, then don't do it or have a separate charge. Most of the vendors provided a 'preferred vendor' list anyway. We had a very happy ending with an amazing wedding and found an unbelievable photographer that, in the end, rescued us.

Social Butterfly Events responded with the following comments:

Ann I would hope that less than 4 days after your daughter's wedding you would still be enjoying that after wedding glow after all the work you put in. Yes you are correct I did make a mistake and that was offering more than I was contracted for and from that I was caught in the middle of a situation that went on way too long and was uncomfortable. I will make sure to take that lesson with future clients. I am glad that the items that I was contracted for went smoothly. As for everything else you have stated instead of going back and forth I will wish you guys the best and I hope Sydney enjoys married life.

Charyl was recommended to us by Rich at the Brooklyn Arts Center as he thought she would fit our personalities perfectly and she surely did! Charyl was fantastic to work with throughout the entire planning process. I trusted Charyl wholeheartedly and every vendor that she recommended. With Charyl's guidance, recommendations, and hard work we had the most beautiful wedding that far exceeded what I envisioned. All night long we had friends and family coming up saying that it was one of the best weddings and that it was so perfectly "us". Charyl gets all the credit for capturing "us" and creating a truly magical day.

I do not know where to begin. If it was not for Charyl we probably would not have had a wedding. We had a very interesting situation and Charyl knocked it out of the park. From the second I met her I knew that she was our perfect planner. She is super down to earth but has a great business drive. She was the perfect partner for me as I am very type A and she had no problem just checking everything off the to do list.
We did a custom package that was between day of coordination and planning. I had a vision and Charyl helped me coordinate it all and attend vendor meetings to ensure I was getting everything I needed. We had the entire wedding planned at an outdoor venue that included nothing in minimal time and with minimal stress.
That is until the week before our wedding when Hurricane Matthew was forecasted to hit us. Again, we had an outdoor tent wedding planned this of course was out of the question. Charyl worked her magic and some how found out the most perfect second location four days before our wedding. We ended up having to push up our wedding day by one day and re-plan and coordinate a new venue. Charyl did not even blink and wouldn't let me stress about it. She somehow was able to get every vendor to move up a day and designed a ceremony location since originally we had no rentals for the garden. To this day I am in complete awe of how great she was. You would have never known the day of all the stress she had that week because it all came together perfectly. If it was not for her I probably would have cancelled my wedding and went to town hall. I will forever be grateful and look forward to planning events with her in the future.

We Loved working with Charyl. I literally don't think she left any details undone. If she forgot anything, we didn't know about it because she made it happen behind the scenes. Charyl is masterful at making all family members feel important while minimizing stress on the bride and groom. I would definitely recommend social butterfly!
