  • Nikki and her team were absolutely amazing from start to finish. I planned my wedding in Asheville, NC from Boston - which I found to be no easy task! Despite this, Nikki worked with me in whatever capacity was needed. If I ever had a stress, concern, or question (no matter how big or small) she always responded in a timely fashion and immediately calmed me down. During the rehearsal and the wedding, she was fantastic at coordinating everyone with shocking efficiency (we had a large wedding party with a lot of excitement, all the time) and a smile on her face. Our night could not have been better and Carolina Love Events was a huge part in making that happen!

  • It's been three months since my wedding day, and in hindsight, I am even more sure now than I was then that hiring Nikki was the best hiring decision I made throughout the whole process. She's super chill personally and extremely easy to get along with. She's also incredibly organized - working with her was essentially like taking a multiple choice test (while working without her would have been like having to take an essay-answer test). She researched and brought me vendor options/decor options/etc. that fit me and my then-fiance/now-husband, and we picked best fit, or she would go back to the drawing board, if necessary. Day of the wedding, I did not have to worry about one single detail. Nikki and Pankti took care of everything (including making sure the marriage license was signed and sent so that we are actually legally married). There are so many wonderful things I could say about Nikki and how easy she made this process. We knew as soon as we spoke with her (and we spoke with a ... Read more

  • We are very happy to have chosen Nikki from Carolina Love Events! She was our planner and also our florist. She made the process so smooth, don’t know what I would have done without her. She created a wedding timeline and helped us design the layout for florals and decor. She even helped us find our favorite arbor that fit our budget. Everything looked spectacular!!! Our guests couldn’t stop talking about it and even people that didn’t attend the wedding say the flowers look amazing! My bouquet was everything I dreamed of, so beautiful!!! I can’t say enough good things about Nikki. Would highly recommend her! She is the best!

  • We had a very small ceremony due to COVID but Nikki and Kristy gave us every bit of their attention! Responsiveness and communication were on point and they made our day a wonderful success (despite covid and a hurricane)! I HIGHLY recommend Carolina Love Events!!

  • We got married at Homewood, so we contracted with Carolina Love Events for our wedding there. We went with the full planning package to help reduce stress during the planning process and since we do not live locally. It was worth every single penny!! We gave ourselves over a year from booking the venue to the wedding date, which also helped. Nikki helped us stay on top of the timeline by checking in regularly, strategically spreading out decisions on vendors, and everyone she recommended was wonderful. We ended up having to reschedule our wedding from May to September due to the pandemic, and Nikki helped make that so easy. We also significantly reduced our guest count AND moved the reception outside, and it could not have been easier with Nikki’s help. She accommodated every decision and gave us very helpful guidance when we needed it. On top of all the planning, we also used Carolina Love Events for our flowers! They were more affordable than the other local options we quoted, and ... Read more

  • We were getting married in Asheville from out of town, and Nikki made it such an easy process. She was great at providing vendor recommendations and answering all the questions we had along the way. She is super organized and transparent, so we were never left guessing about things we may have forgotten or what was left on our to-do list along the way. When she found out that she would be giving birth the week of our wedding, she answered emails as long as should could and provided alternative contacts who did an excellent job filling in. They were such a joy to work with and made everything about our day easy and stress free!

  • Nikki was amazing, she was patient with me and was cool as a cucumber the day of the wedding. She walked me through the entire process and gave recommendations for each vendor. I recommend her with any wedding planning. She was truly a professional.

  • Nikki and Pankti did an amazing job planning our wedding. We had a small wedding (under 75 ppl) at the Blue Ridge Mountain Club and Nikki and Pankti helped create an intimate wedding for all of our friends and family. Nikki and Pankti were very responsive to our emails, phone calls, and texts throughout the planning process. We were so glad that we had them as part of our special day!

  • Nikki and her team were hands down the best decision we made and money we spent for our wedding. Nikki helped us plan our wedding for a year and a half and was with us every step of the way. Perhaps the best testimony I can give is that my husband nor I stressed at all on our wedding day. We both knew that Nikki and her team had the entire day under control and we were able to enjoy every second of our wedding. I cannot day enough good things about Carolina Love Events!

  • We planned our wedding in Asheville from Hawaii, so there were many logistical barriers to planning our day. Having Nikki and Carolina Love Events as our planner was the biggest life saver! Worth every penny! The planning process naturally came along as the time got closer. My husband and I are over the moon with how smooth everything went. From decor, to flowers, to favors, to marriage license, and so many little details that I could go on and on. Nikki took care of it all. Her recommendations were fantastic. We could only visit Asheville a few times before the wedding, and she set up everything from food tastings, to venue visits, to hair and make-up trials. Thank you to Nikki and your team! You all are seriously amazing! We feel so fortunate to have had the absolute perfect wedding day! We also received several compliments from our guests about how great our wedding was.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks so much Sara and Josh! I really enjoyed working with you in planning your beautiful day! We wish you all the best in your newlywed life- please let us know if you are ever back in Asheville!

  • Nikki was easily the best decision we made when wedding planning. From the start, Nikki was super organized and very easy to work with. She met with us as much as we wanted and the only times she didn't get back to an email within 24 hours was when she was on maternity leave with her beautiful new baby :) She organized and managed all of our vendors and wedding party the weekend of the wedding. Everything was just perfect, and I know it's because Nikki was running the show the whole time in the background. We never worried about a single logistic come the morning of the wedding. We loved working with Nikki so much, we also contracted her to do our flowers and help find a few vintage-inspired pieces to complete our wedding day vision. The flowers were a dream. She helped us cut costs by running some substitutions the week of, based on what was fresh and available. Do yourself a favor and hire Nikki and her team.

  • We used Carolina Love Events for our Day of Coordinator and my only regret is not booking them for the full or partial wedding planning! Nikki and Pankti were both very responsive to emails, texts, or calls and answered ALL of my questions in detail. My family also mentioned how sweet and helpful they both were to them throughout our wedding as well.

  • We chose the Homewood as the location for our wedding and were required to use Nikki as our wedding coordinator. You don’t get any other choice. Then on the day before our wedding we were introduced to a different wedding coordinator that we never met before with zero explanation of where Nikki, whom we had work with for nearly 18 months, had suddenly disappeared to. What? Needless to say our worst nightmare came true. So many details were completely missed including our most important one. The fireplace. Our dream was to get married in front of the fireplace and the coordinator completely failed to turn on the fireplace before starting the ceremony. The groom, best man, mother of the bride and the bride all reminded her that day to make sure it was on and still it was never turned on. We will never get that moment back and will get to see photos of our fire less ceremony forever.

  • Nikki and her team were amazing through the whole process. We hired for the Day of Coordination Package, but still felt they went above and beyond and were able to answer questions throughout the entire planning process. Early on she even sent us a detailed day of and day before schedule. Down to the quarter hour! Haley and Kristi were there the day of, and helped make sure everything went smoothly. It truly was a load off my mind, with my tendency to worry and try and fix things myself. Very glad I had them on my team!
