Planning a wedding is always a huge endeavor talking to a lot of vendors, comparing different options, taking decisions and wondering what would have happened if you would have decided differently. Not so with Carly! We immediately received a good vibe from her during our first call, decided to go with her and did not regret it any time.The following months we had several alignment calls to get to know each other better and to determine both structure and content of our ceremony. When we received the first draft of her speech for review, my fiancée and I had tears in our eyes as it was so on point. The outcome was a ceremony that felt so authentic and just like… us. During our wedding day, Carly played an extraordinary role being our anchor with her experience and peaceful aura during a day where so many things were happening around us.To sum everything up: Carly’s support before and during the wedding was just outstanding! We cannot recommend highly enough for everything she has done for us.All the interactions with her in advance and during the day from sharing our stories to create a lovely ceremonial speech definitely made the whole experience unforgettable for us.

Carly is a true master of her work! Steve and I got married in August and had been planning our wedding for an exact year before that. Our wedding planner felt that Carly’s personality would match up amazingly with ours and she was so right! From the moment we met her through video chat, we felt so excited about the idea that she was going to get to know us intimately so that she could tell our story! Throughout the next few months, she was incredibly flexible and understanding with the meeting days and times. We never felt rushed and always felt heard and appreciated. She is passionate, dedicated, and incredibly charming with her words. Steve and I felt like our story was being told for the very first time in front of those we love most. The words and message were amazing, thanks to Carly. She brought all of the positive vibes!

Carly was an absolute dream to work with, and made our day even better than I imagined. Planning a private destination elopement so far away was much easier than I expected – due to having an awesome team which included Carly as a big part of that! She was flexible with scheduling phone meetings (since we were half way around the world and 8 hours behind her), and always seemed genuinely excited to learn about us as a couple, and what she could do to make our day perfect. Her custom ceremony was amazing, and the perfect mix of traditional, silly, and romantic for my husband and me. When we finally met Carly in person, it was like meeting an old friend (as we all ran to catch our boat before it left)! I wish we could have hung out with her longer!
