Charlee is incredibly talented, creative, and wonderful to work with. My wedding was last weekend and Charlee created a dream-like, perfect wedding weekend for my family, husband and I. Charlee has exquisite taste, wonderful ideas and creative touches to ensure a perfect, unique and unforgettable wedding. I would recommend Charlee to anyone looking for a fabulous wedding planner! She is top notch!
Charlee was absolutely the best to work with and could not have imagined going through the whole process without her. She did my sisters wedding a year ago so I knew we would be pleased but she still managed to impress me. She makes the wedding planning and day of stress free and makes sure to get you the wedding of your dreams. I wanted something slightly different than your typical wedding and Charlee came up with great ideas. It was still your traditional wedding, however with a few details that set it apart. We extended the dj an extra half hour and guests still were not ready to go home, and I credit a lot of that to Charlee. She will definitely guide you along the way while listening to your wants, needs, and concerns. She will make sure you get the best of the best at a fair price. I would recommend Charlee to my closest friends and family. You will not be disapointed!
Charlee saw to it that my vision was realized. I couldn't have asked for someone better to be my planner. She has impeccable taste and is such a professional with the vendors. Her experience proved to be a huge asset. I didn't feel like I had to worry about anything and that is because she is organized and meticulous. She is honest with you in assessments of vendors. She guides you each step of the way and ultimately lets you make the decision with who you will be most comfortable with. Most of all, I had fun with her and her team.
Charlee Geisler and Signature Events are the best!!
I am the mother of the bride and this was the second wedding that Charlee has done for us!! She is amazing and I can honestly say I couldn't have planned my daughters wedding without her!
I have known Charlee for many years . She is not only a true professional but also has become a very special friend.
Her personal touches from start to finish were incredible!! The vendors she recommended were awesome and the timeline of the event was perfect! Everything was just beautiful !,
My girls both had their dream weddings !!
Cindy (happy mother of the bride)
I can't say enough good things about Charlee! She went from planning my bat mitzvah to planning my wedding, and I absolutely could not have done it without her. She is so detail oriented and truly wants to make sure your day is perfect. We had to move our ceremony inside due to bad weather, and Charlee made the whole process so easy and stress-free for us. She transformed the ballroom we were put in into the most beautiful room that I forgot it was our backup plan. She is by far the most amazing, talented, caring wedding planner. I love her and cannot thank her enough for all the wonderful memories we have from our wedding.
We tried to do our due diligence in choosing a full service wedding planner, and interviewed 7 planners with a list of questions. Charlee is very nice and put on a great presentation, so we selected her. She did get us some really good vendors and a good officiate, but sadly, that is about where the positive ends.
Unfortunately, she did not carry through with the full service promised in the interview. There are multiple examples of this: We asked for a detailed budget outline, but did not get one. When we continued to ask, we got a couple which were incomplete. Furthermore, in several cases, she did not stick to the budget we had put forth. She had said she would take care of the rehearsal dinner, but then kept emailing that she had nothing to do with helping us for this. In addition, we were promised a master plan with a timeline, which we did not get. When we asked again for one at about 4 months out from the wedding, she emailed us a generic timeline like the one from the knots website dating back to one year ahead of the wedding date.
A few other points are worth mentioning. She is not Internet savvy. She does not help with the website and did not want to help with online things such as ordering our invites (which we found at a much better price than her suggested vendor).
She was not unbiased in showing us venues and was noticeably disappointed when we chose another 5 star venue rather than her personal first choice.
We felt like she was disorganized, and like we continually had to remind her of what had to be done.
At the rehearsal, she didn't know the names of the bridesmaids or groomsmen. The night of the rehearsal, she came to my room to get her final check and the place cards...she took her check and forgot the place cards.
I wish I could write a good review and recommend her, but I cannot. The service overall was overpriced and truly unorganized. I wish someone had written something lie this, so I would not have gone with...
As two physicians getting married a little later in life, we were initially delusional to think that we would be able to plan our own wedding. After selecting the Four Seasons Scottsdale for the wedding venue, we asked the catering manager for names of some wedding planners with whom they have had successful interactions in the past. Fortunately for us, Charlee Geisler of Signature Events was on the short list that we were given. After doing some of our own research on the internet, we met with Charlee and immediately knew that we had found our wedding planner. It is readily apparent through her professionalism that she is not planning weddings as a hobby or part-time job, but she has made a successful career of doing this. Charlee very quickly gave structure and guidance to two type-A personalities who were already well behind the conventional time schedule for planning a wedding. While walking us through the process, Charlee’s value became even clearer to us when we realized the extent of her contacts. Whether it is for flowers, invitations, wedding attire, band, DJ, photographer, videographer, dance instructor, or venue, Charlee knows the best in the business, and she stands behind her referrals 100%. More importantly, these other contractors not only seem to know her, but they go out of their way to accommodate her requests. At the end of the day, we held our wedding at the Four Seasons Scottsdale on September 15. The event was flawless, and we repeatedly heard from our guests that it was the best wedding that they had ever attended. Importantly, we also remained within our initial budget. With Charlee as your wedding planner, you not only get a consummate professional, you get someone who plans your wedding as if you were part of her family. Thanks Charlee…you are the best!
Charlee was outstanding. On the day of our wedding, she managed to be in more than one place at any given time. It was magic, I swear. But what really sets Charlee apart from the rest is how much she cares. She really, truly wanted my wedding day to be just as perfect and special as I wanted it to be. Her dedication to preparation, organization and execution was A+. It's that simple. Charlee is the necessary ingredient to ensure that your wedding goes off without a hitch!
We love Charlee and Signature Events. She and her lovely team helped us to create a unique and beautiful wedding in May, 2012 at the Four Seasons in Arizona. Words cannot express how wonderful it is to work with her and how amazing it is to have had the best experience and wedding you could have hoped for. Her experience, creativity and impeccable style and attention to detail made our wedding truly unforgettable. Charlee goes out of her way to be careful and to have the delicate balance as your planner/advisor of listening to your needs and suggesting ideas, or of being deferential or firm when either is required. You can trust her opinion implicitly as she simply wants to help you create the best event for you.
As our wedding was a destination wedding having Charlee's experience and references from photographer to makeup artist made everything smooth and easy. She referred us to the best vendors who all exceeded our expectations and were wonderful to work with. Our flowers were truly beautiful and our invitations have been invited to be featured in magazines! Our string quartet, jazz band and the DJ were fantastic and had the crowd dancing all night. The room décor and our special Taj Mahal theme could not have been more magnificent. All of our guests noted the attention to detail at our wedding and went out of their way to state that not one thing was missed or overlooked.
The Four Seasons and Signature Events customer care could not be surpassed. Charlee worked with The Four Seasons to help us create a unique and very enjoyable menu. The Four Seasons delivered delicious food with delightful food presentations and took care of all of our food allergies, special requests and concerns with skill and ease. Our family and friends have not stopped raving about the menu and the food.
For any bride and groom your wedding is the best wedding but when Charlee is your event planner - your guests will agree. Many of our guests have sent notes, cards and emails saying that “This was the best wedding they have ever attended” and how much they enjoyed the night. Charlee in our opinion is simply one of the premier event planners you could hope to find, anywhere - period!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Charlee Geisler and Signature Events. My husband and I came to her 9 months ago with a vision to create a show-stopping elegant yet contemporary wedding that our guests would never forget. She showed us videos and photos of recent weddings she had done and we were blown away. Her experience, creativity and impeccable style and attention to detail were evident in our very first meeting with her and we knew immediately that we were in good hands. It was VERY clear that she is passionate about what she does!
My husband and I were married two weeks ago, May 5th 2012, at The Four Seasons in Scottsdale, AZ. We are still getting phone calls and emails everyday from our guests telling us it was the most amazing wedding they have ever been to! Because Charlee has been planning weddings for so many years, her knowledge and connections in the industry are priceless. She knows exactly who the best vendors are to use in every category- from invitations, bands, Djs, and strings, to floral, furniture rental, draping, makeup artists, and anything else you could possibly need or want...she knows who are the best of the best...and we felt that all of the vendors were priced very reasonably. Because she has worked closely with many of them over the years everything seemed to flow so smoothly! I had literally no worries or stress about anything because I knew Charlee was in charge!
One of the things I enjoyed most about the whole planning process was that her and I worked together to come up with new and creative ways to present/serve all of the food from the hor d'oeuvres to the sorbet, to even the late night bites and the design of the garnish for our martinis... and SO many other little details, that so easily could have been done generically. She really cares about perfecting every single thing and I can honestly say that no detail was overlooked!
Thank you Charlee for a flawless event! If you are looking to create a spectacular wedding, Signature Events/Charlee Geisler is the perfect person to use. As a bonus, she can even calm your nerves if your mother gets out of line the week before :)
The bottom line is: Charlee and Signature Events will ensure your wedding is exactly how you envisioned it would be, regardless of any bumps along the way, and they will do it with the utmost quality, attention to detail, and professionalism. In simple terms – Charlee just gets it. I’d absolutely, without question, use Charlee again and recommend her to my friends and family. In fact, this was third event with which Charlee has helped – she planned my sister’s wedding and my brother’s Bar Mitzvah. If that is not the clearest indication of how happy my family and I have been with Charlee, then I don’t know what is!
I had to plan my wedding out-of-state. There is no way I could’ve done it without Charlee. We only had a few weekends to fly in and meet the vendors and make our key decisions. Charlee was pivotal in efficiently organizing our vendor meetings and helping us to make important decisions. No matter what we asked, she was willing to help. When, for example, a football game that was very important to my (now) husband was on during the only time we had for our food tasting – no problem – Charlee brought in a TV so my husband could watch the game and participate in the tasting. My husband, to this day, says that’s one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for him! When the differences between my husband’s culture and mine presented some challenging wedding decisions, Charlee often found ways to seamlessly blend both of our visions. In the end, Charlee really understood my vision and made it happen. Many guests told us it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they had ever attended.
Lastly, the real benefit of hiring Charlee comes on your wedding day. You don’t have to worry about a single thing. Charlee takes care of everything. If something isn’t right, she fixes it, and you never even know about it. You get to spend your wedding day doing what’s most important – enjoying it and living in the moment –and Charlee takes care of everything...
Charlee is amazing! She made our wedding expierence so memorable and easy. Charlee and her staff are very hands on and get everything taken care of in a timely manner. She made my wedding planning very fun and stress free!
Charlee was awesome to work with. She listenes to your wants and needs while adding her professional touch. She is very efficient and gets things done in a timely manner. Charlee made our wedding planning expierence more memorable than i ever thought it could be! My expectations were exceeded! Not noly did we find an amazeing wedding planner, we gained a good friend! :)
Charlee Geisler with Signature Events was amazing to work with. She handled all the details, big and small. Most important was the couple of days leading up to the wedding as well as the day and night of. Charlee took care of every little thing you can think of. Two days before she had me drop off all the little things that i had elected to do, i.e. items for a sand ceremony, sparklers for the send off, thumb print tree for guests, candle for ceremony, etc. When i arrived for the actual wedding everything was in its place. i didn't have to think about anything. Charlee runs her weddings in a unique way. You never find yourself sitting around wondering when something is going to happen. She creates an energy that I have never experienced before. When my husband and I got back to our rooms Charlee had our champage flutes washed and put back in the box, the cake knife was washed and in the box, she brought candles that we used for the ceremony and had them lit, my bouquet was placed on the table along with our photo and thumbprint tree. it was beautiful! I can't say enough about Charlee. When things go wrong, she never lets your brides know. She just takes care of it. She truly made my wedding enjoyable and worry free.
This really was a fantastic experience. We were the type of couple who wanted to be walked through the entire process – neither one of us had any sort of knowledge, familiarity, or desire to plan our own wedding. We interviewed several wedding planners and were immediately drawn to Charlee of Signature Events. She was equal parts professional and personable, exuding an unmistakable no-nonsense attitude coupled with a genuine interest in bringing a spectacular wedding to fruition. From the very start she was tuned to our budget and our likes/dislikes. The process is incredibly complex, with countless facets of construction needing attention. She guided us with choosing the right venue (with an owner who she had great persuasion over), a top-notch caterer who didn’t even require a deposit (simply because they have a longstanding work relationship), a DJ who she negotiated down to a bargain price, rental equipment services that were so flexible she was able to alter the table/chair count the day before the wedding (after we had some last minute cancellations), valets, musicians, and a most fashionably contemporary officiant.
We never had any problems calling her at all times of the day and, despite our living nearly an hour away from her office, never had any problems scheduling appointments. But most important of all was the delivery on the wedding day itself. All of her vendors showed up on time, her assistant was continually at our beck and call, and everything ran smoothly and on time. The ceremony started precisely, the wait staff was extremely courteous, and the valet went above and beyond to make sure the driveway was clear and unsullied. No one underperformed and Charlee was always just a few feet away in case we needed anything. We could not be more thrilled with Signature Events and highly recommend their services to anyone who wants to kick back, relax, and get married the stress-free way.
I recently got married Dec. 30, 2011 and Charlee Geisler with Signature Events planned our wedding. We started planning in August, so we had a short amount of time. Working with Charlee was a dream come true. She is a true professional and her vision and style is impeccable. She was recommended to us and it was the best decision we ever made to work with her. Every detail of our wedding was flawless. People kept comment on how relaxed and peaceful I was for a bride. That was because I didn't have a worry in the world. Charlee handled every detail down to the smallest things and it took all the pressure off of my shoulders. Our guests all sent cards and emails after the wedding making comments like "This was the best wedding/event we've ever attended" and "We couldn't believe how every single detail was covered from the invitations to the late night fare." Other comments were "This was the most beautiful and elegant wedding we've ever been a part of". One guest said "We've been to more weddings than we can count and this was by far the nicest most memorable wedding we've ever had the honor of attending". I will continue to use Charlee's services for future business events and I will continue to recommend her services to everyone I know. Charlee started out as our wedding planner, but has since become our friend. In our humble opinions she is the premier wedding coordinator in the Valley. ...
I would work with Signature Events again in a heartbeat.
I must admit, we were not especially easy to work with and Charlee and her team were nice, considerate and always helpful.
She really shines in picking out great vendors. Our photographer, location, florist and meal were beyond fabulous. Also, her hair and make up vendors were spectacular.
I would recommend Signature Events to anyone!
I worked with Signature Events to plan my wedding in November 2010. Charlee was AMAZING to work with!! I was so grateful to have her help especially being an out of town bride. Her attention to detail, organizational skills, and knowlege of the industry were exactly what we needed. Our wedding was such an incredible day and out guests still talk about how classy and fun it was at the same time. Thank you so much for everything!! I would highly recommend Charlee and team!!
There are really no words to describe just how amazing Charlee and her team at Signature Events are, or how incredibly grateful my now husband Dan and I are for all that they did to make our wedding a deam come true. THEY ARE AMAZING! We were beyond thrilled with the creativity, effort, dedication and professionalism that they put forth to give us exactly what we wanted--and so, so much more. It was the most magical, best night of our lives (and I can tell you that our guests could not stop raving either!). I don't regret a single thing about my wedding and look back with only the best memories--in large part because of Signature Events.
Hire her, hire her, hire her!

Charlee is a wonderful person. Very warm, thoughtful and approachable. She took care of every aspect of our wedding- all of our vendors, officiant, hotel rooms, personalized welcome packages for our guests, even menus to match our invitations. She was liked by everyone in our family. Signature events was very easy to work with, Charlee took all of our wants into consideration and made a the most beautiful day of our lives possible. We have even kept in touch. Charlee helped us plan for our honeymoon by telling us about a recent trip she had taken. We are so lucky to have used Signature events. Living in new york, we would never have known where to start, but Charlee made everything to simple!!!!
