Hi, I'm Carissa!
I'm the Owner of Positively Charming Weddings and I'm also a Master Certified Wedding Planner + Designer through Certified Wedding Planner Society (CWP Society), the nation’s leading wedding planning certification program and network of wedding planners!
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.
I take 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? I 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 me as your Month-Of Coordinator, I give just as much attention and love to your wedding as well...no detail goes unchecked! My goal as your Master Certified Wedding Planner is to guide and advise you as best as I can so I can make your dream wedding a reality.
As a Master Certified Wedding Planner, I'm personable, calm, and detail-oriented on wedding days, which are all essential to making your day go off without a hitch. I 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 I can't handle. Let me help you make your dream wedding a reality so that you have one less thing to stress about!
ON A PERSONAL NOTE...
I've been married for almost 9 years to my super handsome, goofy, and handy husband
I have (in my opinion) a super adorable little boy named Kyler who is a little over 2 years old.
I knew I wanted to be a wedding planner when I was in 6th grade after watching the movie, The Wedding Planner
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 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), but that's probably the most bougie thing about me
