Riley, Bride

“My wedding would not have happened if it weren’t for Abigail and the Plannerie.

I had so many visions for what I wanted our special day to be and was so overwhelmed by the idea of making it all happen…until Abigail came along. She was able to take my unfinished ideas and perfect them. She turned our day into something so unique and well-executed (people are still talking about our wedding).

She communicated with our vendors clearly, kindly and professionally. She guided us through how to make certain decisions and I always felt supported knowing she was there to make our day amazing no matter what we chose.

She knew EVERYTHING and I had 100% faith in her the whole time. I knew we were in good hands every step of the way.

I couldn’t recommend Abigail or the Plannerie more."

Annie, Bride

"I cannot describe to you how wonderful Abigail is. She is the most incredible wedding planner!

My dream wedding came true and I owe it all to her. I had a somewhat short engagement and she was able to pull together everything I wanted and more within our budget.

If you are on the fence about who to hire to plan your wedding, go with
The Plannerie; you will NOT regret it!"

Hannah, Bride

"Abigail was so wonderful to work with!!

I came to her in a frenzy needing a planner - she is accommodating, organized, and the best investment! She made my day absolutely seamless and it was such a beautiful and easy day. I could not have done it without her!!

I would have her there with me a million times over."

Julie, Mother of the bride

"Working with Abigail Okland to plan and carry out our daughter’s wedding proved to be not just beneficial, but invaluable. She developed timelines, managed contracts and was the point person for the caterer, florist, photographer, band and more. Everyone enjoyed working with her.

She is both a big picture thinker AND a detail person. She made important recommendations, advocated for us, kept track of the myriad details and made sure we stayed within budget. All along the way, she minimized stress and worry. Abigail has great creative instincts, but with a goal of making each wedding completely authentic to the bride and the family involved.

She is very professional, yet warm and kind, and an excellent communicator. In the months leading up to and throughout the wedding weekend, we felt incredibly supported by Abigail . We knew we were in confident, capable hands. She helped us host a beautiful, glorious and joyful celebration that our family will cherish forever.

Nina, Mother of the Bride

"Abigail joined our wedding team at crunch time and single handedly designed and produced - our wedding programs, classy bar signage, guest book signage, menus with decorative details for each of our 170 place settings, a master seating chart on a 6 ft mirror, a welcome sign on a 3 ft mirror, a legacy table with pictures and write ups of the grandparents and parents, petal cones to throw rose petals, reserved seating cloths for the backs of family member’s chairs.

Her attention to timelines, aesthetic details, creativity and unique ideas took the pressure off of me! I received complimentary comments from our guests who noticed her lovely touches, many they had not seen before.

Abigail has a great sense of style but can also embrace the bride’s vision and elevate it.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Abigail, The Plannerie. She was a delight!
 She went the extra mile for us in every aspect of the work.

Thank you again Abigail! You elevated our wedding decor and made the process fun and painless."

Ashley, Florist

"Abigail is absolutely phenomenal. I consider myself a pretty organized person, but Abigail knocks it out of the park. I did the flowers for a wedding she planned, and she provided very detailed outlines, timelines, floor plans, and everything I needed in a timely manner. She is a thorough and clear communicator, and keeps her cool through pretty much anything that can get thrown your way during the wedding planning process! Very excited to work with her again soon!"

Marian, Planner

"I have worked with Abigail on numerous weddings and events over the past 2.5 years, and I would partner with her again and again on events. There are not enough words to describe how amazing she is!

Abigail is communicative, responsive, diligent, creative and decisive. She is both kind and attentive while helping couple’s navigate the decision-making process, and she is assertive with decisions when it comes to forming plans day-of. She has incredible taste and a great vision for how to make a seamless event come together. She is detail-oriented when it comes to building timelines and she thoughtfully thinks through every little detail from the time the shuttles arrive to the placement of the napkins to the plan for returning the bride/groom’s materials at the end of the evening.

When I had a baby last October, I knew there was no one I’d rather bring on board to help take a couple of Fall 2023 Charleston weddings over the finish line than Abigail. She seamlessly got integrated with my couples and where we were at in the planning process, and then graciously took over managing communication with them once I stepped away. She took the initiative to schedule calls, send vendor emails, and work with the couples to update any details as needed/desired as if they had been her own clients for years!
The executed flawless wedding days, and left behind happy couples and extremely satisfied vendors/venues.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about working with Abigail at The Plannerie!"

Kailin, Venue

"I manage high end weddings and venues such as Lowndes Grove and the William Aiken House where I oversee all catering and beverage service with our in house teams, as well as all staff (banquet captains, servers, bartenders, etc.) for the setup and execution of events. I work very closely with wedding planners leading up to and the day of an event.

I had the pleasure of working with Abigail Oakland and her team in November 2023 at the William Aiken House. Abigail was absolutely fantastic! This was a very large, high-end event and Abigail executed it perfectly. She was so easy to work with and took all of our teams needs and suggestions in to consideration when making decisions. She was calm, cool, and supportive the entire day which is a dream in my line of work! Our client was extremely happy with how everything turned out and Abigail had a large part in making that happen."

Gretchen, Venue

"It is my pleasure to recommend Abigail Okland as an event planner / event coordinator. Her performance working a wedding at The Palmer Building proved she would be a valuable asset to any couple planning their upcoming event or wedding.

I was glad to have Abigail on my client’s wedding day. She has great communication skills and was on top of every detail prior to the event. She showed a strong ability to work independently, ensured that all setup was done according to the plan so that no details were left out. With her help, the wedding day and cocktail reception went perfectly.

Abigail would be an extremely positive asset to any event."
