Hi, I'm Carissa!
I'm the Owner of Positively Charming Weddings and I'm also a Master Certified Wedding Planner + Designer through The Bridal Society, the nation’s leading wedding planning certification program!
I have successfully been planning and coordinating weddings since 2012 and I've loved every minute of it. The small, seemingly insignificant details of a wedding are what make your special day one that you and your guests will never forget. Because of that, I take a lot of pride in making sure that everything is just as perfect as you're envisioning it to be and I feel so honored that so many couples have entrusted me with one of the most special days of their lives.
If I'm not available for your wedding date, I bring in one of my other amazing Lead Planners, Katie or Miranda. Both of them are also Certified Wedding Planners + Timeline Genius Certified through The Bridal Society and have been in the industry for over 5 years. Regardless of which Planner is assigned to your wedding, our team takes over all control and responsibilities on your wedding day so that you can relax and soak in every beautiful moment. What exactly does that entail? We do it all! From starting at the beginning with setting a budget and finding the perfect venue, all the way down to making sure every table setting is perfectly lined up on your wedding day. Even if you just hire us as your Month-Of Coordinator, we give just as much attention and love to your wedding as well...no detail goes unchecked! Our goal as your Certified Wedding Planners is to guide and advise you as best as we can so we can make your dream wedding a reality.
We're personable, calm, and detail-oriented on wedding days, which are important aspects for executing flawless events. We thrive under pressure and love the challenge of handling "hiccups" as they come up, because there's always something that doesn't go as planned on a wedding day, but it's nothing we can't handle. Let us help you make your dream wedding a reality so that you have one less thing to stress about!
ON A PERSONAL NOTE...
I knew I wanted to be a wedding coordinator when I was in 6th grade after watching the movie, The Wedding Planner
I've been married for 8 years to my super handsome, goofy, and handy husband, Andy, who you may be lucky enough to meet because he sometimes assists on wedding days
I am a huge dog lover (I can't help but rescue them from the street when I see them) and I have 2 pups at home...hopefully more in the future
I have (in my opinion) a super adorable little boy named Kyler who just turned one in April
I feel no shame about binge-watching TV shows (if you have any recommendations, pass them my way)
I'm a sucker for a good chai latte (I even have a full latte station setup at home)
