Hiring Addie was the BEST decision we made when planning our wedding. She is amazing and I could not have done this without her. I used to plan events for a living so I know how much is involved in planning/coordinating an event like a wedding (that's why I hired a planner). She exceeded all of my expectations and more! She was on top of EVERYTHING. My friends commented on how relaxed I was leading up to the wedding. I had unlimited contact with her and she always responded in a timely manner. She provided advice when asked and always laid out my options clearly. She also managed the challenges at our venue so that I would not have to stress about them. I cannot explain enough, how much Addie contributed to making my big day wonderful and worry-free. Not only is she incredibly competent in her job (she has 1000 solutions up her sleeve for any occurrence), but she was also a pleasure to work with on a weekly basis. I felt as if I was talking to a friend whenever we were discussing details. She was 100% worth the investment to make our day as wonderful as it could be!

Addie was AMAZING! Hands down the best decision we made when wedding planning was to work with Addie. She took our wedding to the next level with little touches and attention to detail. "Be a guest at your own event" is no joke, when I walked into my reception I could not believe how she (and a team of Moms and other vendors) had transformed the space. I'm sure there was some madness going on the day of our wedding but neither my husband nor I felt any of it...we were able to truly enjoy the day and spend quality time with our bridesmaids and groomsmen. I really can't say enough good about Addie...we loved her as soon as we met her! She really knows her stuff and worked very well with all of our other vendors. Addie has lots of great ideas and important questions for our vendors I never would have thought of. She is absolutely fantastic and I would recommend working with her 1,000 times!

Addie at Dogwood Gatherings is a genius! Our wedding could never have happened so flawlessly without her. She understands and totally manages the stress of event planning, even making it disappear when I needed it to. When I hired Addie to help with coordinating my wedding, she sincerely wanted to help us have the best wedding day, and she and Michael absolutely delivered! She helped us navigate the impossible during COVID-19, including a venue change, a guest list cut, and many seating chart revisions. She helped me stay calm and collected even when I didn't know what to expect. She made my reception space look absolutely breathtaking, and let us really enjoy our special day while she handled the details. Addie even helped us track down wayward vendors and helped me figure out details I may have been missing leading up to the wedding. If you work with her, you are doing yourself a huge favor!
