  • Heather and the whole Carolina Event Design team were absolutely incredible in making my wedding dreams come true, and made the day/weekend so perfect without a stress or worry throughout the whole weekend. Best money we ever spent, and you will not regret it if you do the same!

  • Heather and her team was such as easy choice for us to make (and one of the best choices we made in the wedding planning process). She's an expert in planning, knows how to bring your vision to life, is professional, will let you call or text her with questions, and truly is there to guide you through the entire planning process. My husband and I were looking for someone who we knew we could trust with the small details and lean on for guidance when it came to the big decisions. Heather keeps you on schedule throughout the whole process to ensure you're not stressed weeks before the big day. When you choose Carolina Event Design, you're allowing yourself to rest knowing your wedding is going to be beautiful and flow perfectly. We planned a small wedding around 80 people, and Heather helped us make it a fun and intimate event with all of our family and friends. (not to mention it was also beautifully put together). One of the saddest parts about our wedding being over is we miss ... Read more

  • Heather and the Carolina Event Design team exceeded our expectations for service, wedding planning and execution in EVERY way! First, she's a lot of fun and easy to work with but more importantly, she is an expert and has a great way of serving as a needed coach and trusted advisor while letting us make the decisions. Our daughter's' wedding was a fairly large affair (200 guests) at both church and reception venues and we planned it from across the country. In addition, our original wedding planner needed to withdraw from our contract for personal reasons, so we connected with Heather just two months before the wedding date. From the get-go, Heather instilled confidence! Her style is an incredible combination of highly efficient execution and necessary assertiveness, coupled with constant attention to our style, needs and desires. I especially appreciate the way Heather worked with all our vendors, including the band manager, caterer, florist, etc. She also ran the rehears... Read more

  • We can not say enough wonderful comments about Heather. Heather did an amazing rehearsal dinner for my son and his bride. She handled everything from helping us find a venue , invitations, design, flowers, music, handling contracts,, making phone calls, and creating the most beautiful evening for us. Heather does all this with such grace and patience. She makes the experience so easy for everyone. She is extremely gifted and talented with every aspect of planning an event. The whole weekend was wonderful and perfect with Heather and her team handling everything. We can not thank her enough. So Grateful, Carol and Tom

  • Hands down the best money we could have spent on our wedding weekend! Heather and her team seriously take care of everything and truly allow you and your groom/family/friends just show up and enjoy the weekend. After all that planning, who wants to stress during the actual events? NOT ME! If anything went wrong, I had no clue, the CED team took care of it. They were extremely professional, knowledgeable and a great resource for any question or decision we had to make along the way. They always went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect and exactly how I'd imagine it to be! Not only would I recommend/strongly suggest them for wedding planning, but any important event I would highly recommend! They are truly the best! :)

  • There is no one else I would’ve wanted to help us plan our wedding weekend. From the beginning, Heather was always a step ahead which made us actually ENJOY our engagement and planning process. I have worked in the wedding industry for several years – Heather was one of the first wedding planners I had the pleasure of working with at my current property and she completely blew me away with her services and what she designed for the clients. 4 years later – I was engaged and my first email was to Heather and her team to make sure they were available! From the beginning, she sat down with my family and fiancé and we walked through our budget and walked us through the process and what to expect. She managed our budget to ensure we stayed within our budget and helped get the best ‘bang-for-our-buck’ where it really mattered to us. She had so many resources at her disposal and knew the right people to work with to make sure our vision was complete. Working in the event industry... Read more

  • Heather and her entire CED team are seriously the BEST in the industry. Heather and Hannah worked so hard to make every detail of my wedding so perfect. I couldn't have dreamt of a more perfect day. It was MAGICAL. It sounds so cliche, but it's seriously the truth. MAGICAL. Heather is so experienced and talented with design. I told her I wanted modern, chic, and upscale and she overdid herself with everything that I envisioned. It exceeded my expectations. They are so honest and patient with you, yet give their best knowledge and opinion about every aspect of your day. Heather knows how to work with a bride/family and make your day top notch. She coordinated, planned, and designed my entire day and I wouldn't have had it any other way. What I loved most about the Carolina Event Design team is they seriously became family throughout the wedding process. We left our wedding with the most amazing memories and new friends. If you are in search of a wedding/event planner, you won't regret t... Read more

  • Thanks to Heather and Gina, our daughter’s wedding at the Duke Mansion was amazing. Heather met with us a few times and listened to what we all wanted and expected. With so many out of town guests and family attending, we wanted to be sure everything was covered. I can’t say enough about her expert coordination of vendors during the “month-of” planning as well as the attention to detail during the rehearsal and especially on the day of the wedding! We didn’t have to worry about a thing – Heather’s competence shined through. When we asked a question – Heather had the right answer! Her “day of” timeline was concise and made the day go smoothly. From gathering groomsmen to helping the bride and bridesmaids get ready – Heather and Gina were there. They made sure we were always where we needed to be before, during, and after. We counted on their expertise to ensure the day went smoothly – ceremony and room setup, flowers, cake, photographers, dj, etc. – Heather had... Read more

  • My wedding weekend was the most fun, special, exciting days of my life and I owe a lot of that to Heather! I was a bride that needed a lot of suggestions/ideas, help deciding on things and help getting things done/scheduled. I am not very creative, I had no preconceived notions on what I wanted and I have a full time job which all would have made it impossible to plan and execute a wedding on my own. I was so thrilled with the way everything turned out and I felt like I barely had to lift a finger throughout the process. I am still consistently getting compliments on my wedding and I know it is because everything was well-done, well-thought out and well-executed (all by Heather) and the guests could tell. My dad was very hyper-sensitive about the logistics of the day and had a few very specific ideas and Heather did a great job of going above and beyond to listen to his concerns/ideas, come up with solutions and follow through to make sure they were addressed and communicated well befo...

  • If you want to actually ENJOY your wedding planning process and not stress out through the entire journey, hire CED! These ladies are truly talented and I felt like I was their only client. It's by far the best money we spent and by the end of it all they felt like family! We're planning to get together for Thanksgiving. :) Do yourself a favor, make life easy on yourself and hire CED! You won't be disappointed!

  • Being a vendor in the wedding industry for over 10 years, having a solid team to help plan our wedding was extremely important. Heather and Erin basically made our dream become our reality like I knew they would!! So many of our friends and family are saying that this is the best wedding that they have ever been to and this is largely due to the Carolina Event Design team!!!

  • Absolutely terrible experience! My fiancé and I were looking forward to finally planning our dream wedding when we made the mistake of contracting with Carolina Event Designs (CED). If you want to be involved in your wedding planning, at all, then CED is NOT the place for you! – Just 4 months prior to our wedding date, we were left scrambling, trying to find a new wedding planner! 4 months from our big day, Heather, our planner with CED, no longer had time to provide us with the “one-on-one attention” we were wanting so she gave us 2 options: (1) be transferred to her partner who had “a smaller client load and may be able to give [us] more one-on-one attention that [we were] wanting” or (2) “part ways” and “handle it on our own or find someone who may better align” with what we were looking for. Apparently, this is not the first time this has happened with this wedding planner and unfortunately, those other couples did not take the time to share their stories on the... Read more
