As a South Carolina wedding photographer, I know many wedding vendors in the state. Charleston Chancey Charm Weddings is run by my best friend and college roommate, which makes it so special when I get to work with them! Today I am highlighting their team to show, in their words, what it means to be a wedding planner in Charleston.
Anna and Abby are both incredible and I love working with them! I know I said that Anna is my best friend and was my roommate, but even if I didn’t know her I would still love working with her! They are both super organized, kind, and fun to be around.
Your Business Name & Your Name:
Suterland Weddings LLC / Chancey Charm – Abby Broughton
Tell us a little about yourself:
I am from Raleigh, NC originally and went to NC State University! I’ve worked in almost every vendor role in the wedding industry. But some of my favorites have included being a Venue Coordinator, Stationery Stylist (selling + designing wedding paper goods), a Floral Assistant, and of course being a Wedding Planner! Some of the things I love are trying new restaurants and recipes in my spare time, watching trashy television with my fur babies, Phoebe + Joey, and hosting game nights with plenty of wine and good friends!
How would you describe your style?
Honestly, I have three very different styles that I love. I adore the Italian and/or French rustic countryside, vineyard vibe. I also love the more rustic yet industrial feel such as at the Cedar Room. And finally, living in Charleston, I of course am a sucker for the traditional Southern weddings in the lush, outdoor venues and gorgeous historic homes.
What do you love most about working in weddings?
I love getting to play a big part in the happiest day of peoples’ lives! Forming those relationships and getting those tears and hugs at the end of the evening is the best. My favorite moment of a wedding is towards the end of the evening, when all of the guests are feeling good and out on the dance floor. Everyone is dancing and laughing and singing to each other, and not thinking about anything else other than just being happy in that moment. I love seeing all of the couples most important people in their lives come together in one space and be joyful together!
What advice would you give to your couples who are preparing for their wedding day?
Try and remember that this is YOUR wedding! I understand, you want your family + friends to be happy, and you want your guests to all have a great time. But remember that this is a celebration of you and your love together, and that is really what the day should represent the most. Don’t be afraid to speak up and fight for what you envision, and don’t be afraid to be unique!
What are your favorite wedding trends right now?
Intimate/micro weddings. I personally love a smaller guest count. Not necessarily a trend, but I also loveeee when couples aren’t afraid of color + funky florals!
And from the words of Kelly, a recent Charleston Chancey Charm Weddings bride:
“We used Chancey Charm month and day of planning for our May wedding in Charleston. Anna is actual MAGIC! Our wedding day was worry free and so fun!! Anna was so wonderful working through all the details and it all came together better than we could have imagined. Our wedding was outdoors there was predicted rain, but Anna was so calm and completely put me at ease. She also made sure that a video was recorded of our ceremony. Since my grandparents were unable to travel which was above and beyond and we’re so thankful! We also had the pleasure of working with Abby who was so sweet and helpful with making sure everything ran smoothly. We highly recommend both Anna and Abby for anyone in search of a wedding planner! Thank you!!!!”
