The Client

Carolyn's years of experience, organization, and unique makeup of her three complimentary businesses set her apart from the competition.  But don't take our word for it, see what her happy clients have to say!

Gianna + Timothy

Have you ever met someone and instantly know the two of you were going to get along? That’s how I felt when I first met Gianna.


As a brand new business owner I didn’t know what to expect when I set up for my first bridal show. As a wedding planner I have years of experience, but as a wedding planning business I was new.

From planning the Bachelorette Party and Bridal Shower, to helping me get ready on the big day, I couldn’t have asked for a better person! Carolyn will listen to you and will give advice about making it your day. From being so organized and prompt, everything always seemed to be accounted for, even the little things I hadn’t even thought of. I would highly recommend Carolyn for any job!

I recommend Happily Ever afTer Wedding and Event Planning to anyone who wants to be able to plan an event that meets the needs of the guests AND hosts.  Carolyn was the wedding planner for my big day, and I was so grateful to have someone who knew the big picture of what needed to happen to make the day perfect so that questions and concerns were directed to her and not to me or other family members.

A couple of my recently married friends commented on how calm I seemed to be and contributed that peace to having such an amazing event planner that gracefully and professionally took away any stress. Carolyn was there through the whole process.


We met on several occasions so that she could understand the flow and vision of the day. She then participated and took charge during decorating days, rehearsal, and, of course, the wedding day. She did everything from decorating to directing, helping with last minute beauty mishaps, directing the flow of the reception, and even cleaning up toward the end of the night.


I cannot stress enough how wonderful it was to know that everything was taken care of and at the end of the day, I had a stress free and absolutely beautiful wedding day. Please seriously consider Happily Ever afTer for your event planning needs! You will be able to enjoy your event after all that hard work, and that's what it's all about!
