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.

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!

Charyl Williams saved my sanity! She is brilliant, bubbly and passionate but more importantly has a natural ability to cease any stress. She has a keen eye for décor and details which made the decision process seamless. She is well established in the community. Her long standing relationships and history with vendors made it possible to make anything happen. She goes above and beyond to make your ideas come to fruition for your dream wedding. She is well respected and came highly recommended. She worked with one of my friends whose wedding I was attending. After seeing her in action that day, it was a no brainer. The wedding was perfect and flawless, as was mine. Not only is she professional and passionate, she is hilarious and fun. She makes you feel like you're part of her family. I can not say enough amazing things about her!!!

We were so glad that we had Charyl and the rest of the Social Butterfly team as part of our crew for our wedding day! I was nervous about the whole wedding planning process because I didn't have much of a 'vision' of what we might want the wedding to be like going in. From the first time I spoke to Charyl I felt like she was in tune with our desire to keep the wedding planning process as simple and low key as possible. Charyl really helped to guide us through the big decisions and the end result was a wedding day that we felt matched us perfectly. During the wedding weekend itself, Charyl took charge of keeping all our vendors on schedule and we worried about practically nothing but walking down the aisle, saying 'I do', and partying with our friends and family. The only reason I didn't rate Social Butterfly with 5's across the board was because at times it took a while to get a response by email. But really, anytime that was the case was when my wedding date was quite a ways away, so nothing urgent. And after a few months I found that if I ever needed anything to be responded to fast then sending a text message was the best way to reach out and she would get right back to me.

Going into our wedding in 2015, we were very excited to have Charyl for our special day. A couple days before the wedding, she notified us that she was no longer going to be there on our day, and instead chose to be the planner for a completely different wedding on the same day as ours, based on the "difficulty" of a different wedding that needed her help. To say that this was disappointing is an understatement. I would not recommend this service to anyone in the area. Charyl is a very nice person, but the lack of professionalism and commitment that was shown frustrated us greatly, and certain aspects of our wedding were lacking because of it. I truly hope that Social Butterfuly can learn from this in the future.

Social Butterfly Events responded with the following comments:

Hello Anna! Unfortunately I rely on staff when I book these weddings and I had a director back out on me days before your wedding. To ensure that both weddings were successful I had to move myself to the other wedding because I knew that your new director would be successful at Brooklyn Arts Center because of her experience in the venue. I know that this news was shocking to you but I also know that my staff went above and beyond on your wedding day to help in anyway possible and the end result was a great wedding.

We are glad to have Charyl as our planner. She made the planning process simple and straightforward. She gave good recommendations on vendors, and helped us validate those that she hasn't worked with before. She also made the wedding day run smoothly, and was quick to act when it started to pour and flood outside during cocktail hour. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves on our wedding day knowing that she was there to take care of the flow and logistics of the event. We couldn't thank her enough!
