  • Carolyn was amazing. She is extremely organized and so much fun to work with? She seemed to know and have a great working relationship with all the vendors. She brings a very calming presence to what could very easily be a very stressful time. She went above and beyond to make my daughter's wedding day perfect! We cannot thank her enough!

  • Carolyn was absolutely amazing from the second we met her and super attentive throughout the planning process and on the day of the wedding. I have been in many many weddings over the years and knew for sure I would be stressed out on my wedding day but.. I just wasn’t because Carolyn helped make everything run smoothly. I cannot stress enough how pleased we were to work with her! Love her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a planner!

  • I cannot say enough great things about Carolyn and her team! They were FAB-U-LOUS! I was planning my wedding from the west coast, and Carolyn was really great and easy to work with. She captured my vision better than I could have imagined, and her thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and personality made it even better. Enjoy your wedding planning experience - call Carolyn! 🤗

  • I knew from our first phone conversation that Carolyn would be my #1 right hand gal who was going to make my dream come to life. You could hear the passion she has for her career in her voice. My trust and respect grew with her when she spent nearly an entire evening with us discussing what we wanted before we had even paid her a dime or signed on a line. Over a 9 month planning period, Carolyn was always available to us for even the smallest of questions or a quick text message. Carolyn was so involved and passionate about the vision we had created and our details. I am a detailed guy and it is not easy for many people to keep up - and she never missed a beat. Carolyn provided outstanding recommendations, kept our planning process moving and ultimately made our night a complete success. Also, the combination of her and her husband, Shawn as DJ/Entertainment is one of the best things we could have ever decided for our event. Carolyn is a class act and you will be so happy to have her o... Read more

  • I knew from the first meeting my fiancé was convinced Carolyn would be our wedding planner. I was quickly sold as well. Easy to work with, thorough and personable. But when it came to me wanting to surprise my fiancé, THE WEEK OF the wedding -she didn’t bat an eye. No surprise was going to throw her off her game. And that’s where she really shined helping to bring to life an amazing ice sculpture feature and making it happen while I was busy working and preparing for the wedding. And she really took it above and beyond surprising even me with additional small touches when it came time to surprise my fiancé. So grateful to work with Carolyn. Kept the evening moving. Attentive to details and even worked with my best man to make sure behind the scenes things happened without me worrying about it.

  • After having to cancel our wedding 3 times Carolyn stepped up to help us create our perfect day with as little stress as possible. She handled everything for us leading up to the day, rehearsal, and day of to keep everything running smoothly and on time! Wedding planning is so stressful and Carolyn really bridges the gap between you and vendors and keeps the timeline going to everything is completed on time! I HIGHLY recommend her for your special day!!

  • Carolyn Cox planned our middle daughters wedding at the Chrysler museum ten years ago! All went so very smooth we felt like guests! Fast forward to our youngest daughters wedding planned for September 15th 2018 at the Culpepper Barn in Pungo. Hurricane Flo crashed the day. We are so grateful for Carolyn and her crew. She handled this crises with her cool, ‘can do’ attitude. From re-booking the venue for June 15 2019, contacting all paid vendors from caterers to food trucks to beer truck, valets, DJ’s, lighting specialists, rentals and on and on! All re-booked, re-organized, original contracts honored. All done with no additional charges by Carolyn Cox! I have Carolyn on speed dial for 2029 - planning my granddaughters wedding!

  • Carolyn was instrumental in making our wedding day perfect! We were so lucky to meet Carolyn early in our planning process, and having her on our team was one of our first "wedding decisions". She helped us quickly gather the rest of our wedding team, including going to each vendor meeting- from decorations, to floral, to an in-depth discussion on catering. She kept us on track with a timeline, giving us gentle reminder e-mails when life got hectic. All the while, she was the nicest, most sincere person you will ever meet. Genuinely a joy to chat with each moment! On the wedding day, my family and I did not need to worry about a thing. Carolyn and her team had everything handled! From the organization of the vendors, to the timeline of the ceremony and reception, to helping with clean-up and organization afterwards, Carolyn was a lifesaver. I highly recommend Carolyn Celeste Weddings! We often look back at our special day saying "What would we have done without Carolyn?!" She has a ... Read more

  • This woman has a heart of GOLD! I cannot recommend her enough! I wasn't sure a wedding planner was something that I wanted, but then my fiancé and I went to a bridal show and realized just how huge this wedding industry is and how overwhelming it is to navigate through it yourself. Anyone who does it without a wedding planner is crazy. Carolyn made it fun, easy, and stress free. Each time it came time to choose something (from vendors to table cloths), I told her what I thought I wanted and the type of price range I wanted to stay in and she gave me two of three options she thought would work. All of my vendors (including her DJ husband and their photobooth company) came from her recommendation and they were ALL phenomenal! Many of my guests commented on how friendly everyone was. The day of, her wedding team was so present, every time I even glanced up to look for one of them, they were by my side instantly asking what I needed. Not to mention, my original wedding date was po... Read more

  • Carolyn was worth her weight in gold. Her bubbly attitude and kindness were just a few attributes to making the stressful wedding planning process better. Every single detail she added and suggested were easily the things that made our wedding that much more spectacular. She is 100% of the time on POINT with every task that needs to be done and for taking the reigns appropriately on our day of to make our wedding day as smooth and stress free as possible. She works closely with every vendor, provides suggestions to different companies, works within your budget etc. We adored her and just wanted to take her home with us! Promptness, assertiveness and level of expertise are all beyond 10/10 we love you so much!!!

  • From the moment we started planning our wedding I told my husband that my one biggest priority was having a wedding planner. I knew from experience that weddings are far more complicated than they seem and I wanted to enjoy the experience rather than be stressed by it. We both agree now that the money we spent hiring Carolyn was the BEST money we ever spent! She is incredibly organized, well connected, and as a bonus, she is an absolute BLAST to hang out with! We had a huge hiccup with our venue just one week before our wedding, and without Carolyn we likely would have had to reschedule. Luckily for us she can make miracles happen and the wedding we ended up having was even better than the one we imagined! I honestly cannot say enough good things about her and her services. Highly recommend.

  • I cannot say enough about Carolyn and her team. From the moment we signed the contract she was extremely helpful and supportive. She was always quick to respond to our questions in detail. If she hadn't heard from us in a while she would reach out to touch base to see how we were doing. As we live 2+ hours away from Carolyn and our venue, we were unable to meet with her in person. However, she Facetimed with us multiple times and spent many hours making sure we were on track with our planning. She offered suggestions for vendors as needed and helped us choose who was a good fit for us as a couple and our wedding vision. Carolyn and her entire team were amazing on the day-of. As far as we were concerned, everything went off without a hitch! We found out in the following days that there were a few surprises that were outside of our control, and she and her team resolved them prior to anyone even knowing. It was a wonderful experience working with Carolyn and her team.

  • Carolyn was a FANTASTIC wedding coordinator. She was so helpful from the very beginning and I felt like I had known her for years! She was very quick to respond and had some really creative ideas that I would have never thought of if it wasn't for her. She was super professional and had this CALMING demeanor about her that was great for a bride like me who wasn't always so calm! Carolyn - we can't thank you and your team enough!

  • Carolyn is not only professional but also personable. She makes your big day a priority and ensures that everything will go as smoothly as possible. We were not originally going to use a day of coordinator but I am SO glad that we did! Carolyn was there to make our lives easier and she was a huge reason our wedding day was so amazing. Look no further for your wedding needs!
