New to North Carolina my husband and I knew that we wanted a wedding coordinator to help us navigate the intimidating waters of wedding planning. After researching online, we set up a meeting with Megan. It took about fifteen minutes for us to know that A Southern Soiree was the perfect fit for us. Megan exuded confidence and experience and her demeanor was approachable and caring.We spent a year planning our wedding with Megan and Gina. They kept us organized and managed the details and timeline. Unlike the experience of so many bride-grooms we know, we can honestly say that we enjoyed the wedding planning journey (and are sad that it’s over!). We looked forward to our meetings with Megan and Gina and with our vendors. We always knew we were in the very capable hands of our planners and we trusted their advice.
The week of the wedding Megan and Gina were nothing short of incredible. They expertly managed ALL of our vendors and wedding details and were sensitive to the stress many bride-grooms and families experience as their very important event approaches. After the rehearsal (the evening before our wedding), Megan said if I needed anything that I could call her at any hour.
Saying that Megan and Gina went above and beyond on the day of our wedding doesn’t adequately describe their involvement/contribution. They managed the set up and break down of multiple sites with ease, juggling vendor drop-offs/pick-ups and independently making last minute adjustments. They catered to the needs of our family and guests and directed our wedding party. They carefully managed every bride/groom hand-off. We didn’t worry about a thing on the day of our wedding – unbelievable and priceless. We were happy and relaxed and could focus on enjoying the day and all of the small moments.
We would emphatically and without reservation recommend Megan and Gina, and A Southern Soiree, to anyone beginning their wedding planning journey.
Thanks to these amazing vendors, the day could not have gone better!
