As my future husband and I set out on the journey to plan our dream wedding, we quickly figured out there was a lot more to planning a wedding than we thought! With both of us working full time and our families living out of town, we knew we needed help. After meeting with Carri and Christine from Mac & B, we knew they would help make our dream day perfect!
Throughout the wedding planning process, they were always there to answer questions, offer suggestions, and give support! I remember a weird feeling of feeling stressed the days before the wedding because I wasn't stressed at all thanks to Mac & B! They really allowed myself, my fiancé, and our families to enjoy our time together before the big day.
Our wedding day was beautiful, perfect, and exactly what we wanted, and we owe a big part of it to Carri and Christine and their team! We couldn't have done it without y'all!

Mac and B Events provided excellent planning for our daughter's wedding on August 15, 2015. From the first contact with Carri MacGreggor to the perfect wedding day, Carri was very professional, organized, creative and fun! During the 6 month planning process, Carri was so helpful in leading my daughter and I through many decisions. She was very mindful of our wedding budget and able to design a beautiful wedding within our range. We used many of the vendors Carri suggested and they all gave quality service.
As the Mother of the Bride, I was able to relax and enjoy every minute of our daughter's wedding day thanks to Carri, Christine and Erica!! I would recommend Mac and B Events for any event.

We got married in downtown Charleston this past May (2015). After scouring the area for an affordable wedding planner-- so many we called were just ridiculously expensive, and some didn't give us the time of day after we mentioned our budget, which, I should add, wasn't even that small! We were recommended to Mac & B by a local photographer, and they turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. They were completely understanding and welcoming to our budget, and came up with a price for day-of coordination, plus "takeover" planning two months out, that perfectly fit our needs, and was even a little bit less than what we had been anticipating (how rarely that happens in the wedding planning process!). Anyway, CHRISTINE WAS AMAZING. We worked primarily with her, and she always made my my mom and I feel so calm and confident about everything. She's incredibly organized and thoughtful, and she always seemed to have all the time in the world to answer our endless questions (which I am sure was not actually the case, which makes that even more impressive). She gave us so many perfect vendor recommendations and also tons of great advice (even on the best length of sparklers!) and pointed out some stuff we needed to consider but hadn't thought of. Whatever we wanted to do, she worked to make it happen, and if what we wanted wasn't possible, she found an excellent alternative solution. Plus, she was just so fun to hang out with!
To sum: if you want a sensible (ie not totally drinking the Kool Aid of the overheating Charleston wedding planning industry/scene), organized, budget-friendly wedding planner who will make you feel 100% confident on your wedding day that everything is in excellent hands, hire Mac & B!

LOVE NOTES FROM OUR CLIENTS
As soon as I got engaged, I started researching wedding planners in Charleston, South Carolina. Since I live in Tennessee, I wanted someone that I trusted to take care of things for me. I came across Mac & B. Events in a wedding magazine and, after my first conversation with Carri and Christine, I immediately knew that I had found the planners that understood me and my vision for our wedding. I worked closely with Carri throughout the planning process. She was always extremely easy to get in touch with and made wedding planning enjoyable. I absolutely loved working with Carri, as well as the entire Mac & B. Team! My wedding was better than I could have imagined!
-Lindsay + Campbell, Knoxville, TN
There are no words to describe how grateful I am to Christine and Carri for all they did for me during my wedding weekend. From coordinating the rehearsal dinner to directing the wedding ceremony they left no detail untouched. They both are the perfect mix of timeless creativity and style while having a strong-yet-gentle command of every situation. My wedding party (and several guests) raved about how calm, collected and in control they were at every juncture. In a sea of frenzy at a wedding, you need someone to get stuff done, but also keep everything upbeat and fun. They nailed this.
-Danielle + Juan, Charleston, SC
Christine and Carri of Mac & B. Events were an absolute joy to work with! If you're looking for a professional, friendly, and thoroughly upbeat duo to plan and pull off a successful, fun, and memorable event for your friends and family, you need not look any further. I would love to work with them again and would highly recommend them and their team!
-Nick, Best Man
Thank you again girls for such an amazing night. You worked ALL DAY and I can never thank you enough. You were just fabulous and I couldn't have asked for anything more. You really are the BEST of the BEST!!! I will always be grateful and you guys will always have a special place in my heart!
-Dana + Adam, Charleston, SC
Thank you both for a beautiful day! We had such an amazing time and you were a large part of that. Thank you for all of your help to make our wedding day fabulous!
-Virginia + Ronnie, Mount Pleasant, SC
I left to get ready and when I came back everything was PERFECT, absolutely perfect. (Carri and Christine) were there to set up tables and decorations, to supervise that all the rentals arrived and were set up according to plan, to round up and keep groomsmen in good order, and to make sure everybody that had to be somewhere was somewhere; all this with a smile on their faces.
-Juliette, Mother of Groom
If I haven’t said it already, I will say it now… I love y’all! I will probably say it 100 times between now and next weekend. Thanks for everything!
-Lori, Mother of Bride
We traveled to Charleston from Virginia for a friends wedding and loved the plantation setting at Legare Waring House. Despite being a rainy night with a downpour right before the ceremony everyone had a great time. We were all able to squeeze under the tent and you could tell the staff worked hard to put the backup plan in place. Loved the setting and love Charleston definitely recommend it for destination weddings.
Carri and Christine of Mac & B are some of our favorite wedding planners to work with here in Charleston! They're not only incredibly knowledgeable, organized and professional, but some of the sweetest women in the industry! What more can a wedding photographer ask for from a wedding planner!? If you want a wedding planner that will answer emails quickly, give you options galore, help you stay on budget, be sweet to your wedding guests, and make sure everything runs perfectly smoothly on your wedding day, these are your girls! Trust us... by the end of your wedding day, you'll feel like Christine and Carri are your new best friends! They're just that awesome!
-Aaron & Jillian Photography
Carri and Christine are the best in the business. I hired Mac and B because of their professionalism, vision, and enthusiasm. Carri and Christine were hired as my day of coordinators but what they did was so much more. We met a few times prior to my wedding and e-mailed countless times until I felt no stress at all about my day. Mac and B are organized and detail oriented which made me feel completely comfortable letting them handle the set up of the wedding at the church and the venue. It was the little additional touches that really made the wedding, like putting flowers on the rickshaw and champagne and flowers on our boat for departure. Setting up hundreds of votive candles to make the Rice Mill glow. Coordinating the timeline for the day and making me never feel rushed or even notice that I was on a timeline. They even brought leftover food to my hotel room after the wedding. I truly can go on and on about these two amazing women. Please choose them for your wedding or event. I know I will absolutely hire them in the future! Looking forward to seeing Mac and B again at friends wedding in July!!
-Virginia + Ronnie, Mount Pleasant, SC
Mac & B Events did a spectacular job for our wedding! Christine was crucial to every detail that went into planning our wedding. Being from Dallas, Texas I relied on them heavily to locate the right vendors and help us get connected. We could not have been more thrilled with the level of care and attention they provided and the other vendors in the industry they connected us with. If you want to feel taken care of throughout the planning process, choose Mac & B Events and you will not be disappointed.
-Katie + Kyle, Dallas, TX
Christine with Mac and B Events was outstanding. She was always very quick to respond and a great communicator. She went above and beyond for my wedding and was constantly proving her worth. She was great and I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding.
-Kristen + Jeb
Carri from Mac and B Events was very warm and helpful from the first meeting! She was wonderful to work with and very accomodating.
-Karen, Mother of the Bride, Greenville, SC
One of the very best decisions my daughter and I made was to hire Mac & B as our "Day Of" wedding planner. They were tremendous! We worked with Christine, who is wonderfully responsive, very professional and a complete pleasure to work with at all times. Everything went smoothly and the day was perfect, with no worries and no glitches. One of our other vendors said that they are always happy when Mac & B is involved, as things are done so well.
And that was so true. We give them an A+ recommendation!
-Lauren + Josh, Nashville, TN
Originally, I signed a contract with (another company) for wedding planning services. 60 days from my wedding they notified me that they had subcontracted my event out to Mac & B Events. It was such a blessing!!
I had the pleasure of working with Carri for my wedding last weekend. She did a wonderful job! Carri kept everything flowing flawlessly. There was an issue with the bridal and bridesmaid's bouquets being delivered to the wrong location and Carri picked them up and delivered them to the correct location for us with a smile on her face. She was so sweet and professional.
She thought of details that I never would have thought of on my own. There is so much involved with planning a wedding that having an extra set of eyes really helped the process. She was able to give suggestions without being pushy and ultimately left the final decision up to me. She makes very detailed timelines (which I love!), floor plans, and wedding party ceremony visuals. I really don't know what I would have done without her.
- Mandy, Cleveland, OH
The ladies at Mac & B are simply incredible. When my husband and I set out to plan our Charleston wedding, we debated whether or not we needed wedding planners to assist us. Second only to choosing each other (!), this was the best decision we made throughout the entire process! Not only did we get the best service in all of Charleston, we also gained new friendships. What impressed us most about working with Mac & B was that every time we communicated they had such incredible awareness and understanding of our vision which allowed us to explore designs & ideas we hadn’t even considered. They are truly great at what they do, knowing exactly when and where to add feedback & guidance and making an otherwise stressful process so much smoother. We never imagined that the actual wedding day could be as stress-free as what we experienced. We both knew that everything was taken care of and everyone was where they needed to be and it allowed us to focus on each other and the incredible moment we were about to share. Several months later, my husband and I are still amazed at how absolutely perfect our wedding day was. It’s something we’ll never forget and we’re so grateful to the ladies at Mac & B for everything they did to make it possible.

Carri MacGregor you are a life and sanity saver. Initially when you get engaged you think to yourself, " I got this" and will be able to plan everything myself. Well I am hear to testify for the sanity of your relationship with your fiance don't do it. Carri took away any fear or concern I had on my wedding day. As I was getting ready with my girlfriends before going to the wedding ceremony they remarked how calm I was. I was calm because I knew Carri could handle any curve ball and I had to trust her. That is a big key to hiring a wedding planner, Trust. I initially contacted Carri over the phone we had an hour conversation and she made me feel very comfortable with my timeline of 6 months to plan a wedding. She helped with many steps along the way and made sure that the wedding planning aligned with my overall theme and decor. When I met Carri I felt instantly happy that she was indeed the right woman for the job. Let's just say not one ounce of worry was spent on my decor, vendors, planning, or silly details the day of the wedding. Carri is Wonder Woman! She and Erica moved with ease quietly working behind the scenes at our wedding making it a success. Hire Mac & B. Events and your wedding will be amazing.
- Lacy, Washington, DC
I owe Carri and her team at Mac and B Events a huge THANK YOU!!! They are incredible!! Carri was recommended to me by a friend and after our first conversation on the phone, I knew she was going to be a valuable part of wedding planning. I hired her team for day of coordination but she went way above and beyond. She was willing to meet several times, even a few months before the wedding. She helped me organize every aspect of the day including the timeline, details at the reception, the send off and the after party! She is so calm and reassuring, which is exactly what i needed during this process. On the wedding day, she was a dream come true!!! No one in my family had to worry about a thing! I had 100% faith in Carri and she did not let me down. She helped to bring my vision of the reception to life and it was perfect!! She nailed all of the details that were important to me. Not only is she a true professional, she is so caring and thoughtful. She welcomed us to the reception by having the servers meet us with drinks and trays of appetizers, she got plates of food for the groom and I and set aside a few minutes for us to eat, and she went out of her way to find my sister when we were cutting the cake so that she didn't miss it. Mac and B was definitely money well spent. I cannot praise them enough!!!

My husband Bobby and I are from New York and wanted a wedding in beautiful Charleston which would have been a complete headache for the both of us if we didn’t have had Christine Boykin and Carri MacGregor as our planners. They really took the stress out of planning. From the minute we met with Carri and Christine, we both knew they were the girls for the job! They took our vision and made it even more beautiful than I could ever imagine! The attention to detail and passion shows in their work. Christine was my point of contact throughout the process and she was very attentive, organized, and answered every question we had. Since it was a destination wedding, when we went to visit to meet all our vendors etc., Christine personally took us everywhere. She was great and helped us with so much. They worked so closely with the vendors and made sure they all had the right schedule, down to the very second. I did not worry about one thing the entire day and night of our wedding. The process of a wedding is overwhelming at times but they really take a lot of the worry away. The day came and the weather didn’t look great, it was raining during set up but Christine and Carri kept such a positive attitude that really helped me thorough it. Luckily our weather cleared up but I was impressed with how Christine and Carri handled it all with ease. Even my guests complimented how great and sweet they both were! Brides, trust me, look no further….you have found your wedding planners! Our wedding was perfect and Mac and B made our special day one that we and all of our guests will never forget! Thank you Christine and Carri xoxox
- Jessica and Bobby, NY
Carri and Erica make magic happen! We used Mac & B for our day of coordinators and our day went off without a hitch! Our friends, family, and bridal party were able to enjoy the day without having to run around to stress about details, the girls did EVERYTHING! My husband admitted after the wedding that investing in coordinators was worth every penny! Even in the months leading up to the wedding, they were always available to advise me before we made decisions on vendors. I can't say enough great things about this awesome group! They are sweet, organized, thoughtful, CALM, and so knowledgeable. We'd love to relive the evening and hire them all over again!!
- Laura, Charleston, SC
I honestly don't have enough good things I could say about Carri. She was awesome, amazing, sweet, professional and organized. We were a destination wedding and she was kind enough to let us ship ALL of our decorations we made for the wedding to her. We would have been lost without this option as I'm not sure what we would have done otherwise. She gave us endless recommendations which I truly appreciated. She made my day so seamless and care-free, it was amazing! Honestly, amazing experience and made my wedding so perfect! She made me not have to think about things I didn't want to think about! Definitely recommend Mac & B.
- Vicki and Seth, Minneapolis, MN
I loved working with Christine and Carri. They are such personable and talented women. They have style and taste. Nothing was over-the-top, everything was executed well. I appreciate their patience with me and decision-making. I am a more hands-on person whose job is also organizing and planning. They worked well with me to create a beautiful wedding. I hired them for a venue that was a first for them and they spared no time connecting with the venue and familiarizing themselves with all the rules and regulations. They were excellent day-of as well—adapting to any changes and keeping on schedule without feeling overbearing. They ran the behind-the-scenes so smoothly I was able to completely enjoy my day without feeling like I needed to default to my usual managerial state. I couldn’t have asked for better wedding planners! Thank you both for the sincere enthusiasm and care you’ve shown me during this past year of wedding planning. I couldn’t have done it without you both!
-Jessica + Ryan, Asheville, NC
Christine, Carri, and the Mac & B. Team- words cant express how truly thankful we all are for the heart and soul you poured into our wedding. It certainly could not have happened without you, your wisdom and encouragement. we loved getting to personally know you and feel like we struck gold with our google search. So thank you for walking us through the entire process and all of your patience! If we are in Charleston again we will definitely have to give you a ring.
-Katy, Kyle, and Shelly, Dallas, TX
I have to tell you that you and Christine were " over the top" amazing!!
You far exceeded our expectations in so many ways such as your involvement before the day of the event by visiting our venue to familiarize yourself with the unique needs of the property, scheduling a conference call with all of the key players to make sure we were all involved and that all of our needs were met, your attention to details throughout the day set up, and your surprise clean up and organization of the cottages where the bridesmaids and groomsmen prepared for the wedding, and so much more I can't even list it all!!. Your amazingly bright smile and cheerful attitude allowed us to know with complete confidence that you had our back throughout the day and we could relax and enjoy our time with family and friends.
Thank you Erica, you were amazing!"
Mother of the Bride
Christine and Carri’s eye for detail and professionalism ensured that the reception ran seamlessly. Christine and Carri treated our wedding event with the same care and attention as they would their own weddings. Mac & B are not just your typical wedding planners; these Southern belles set the standard for the Charleston wedding coordination business. They know the questions to ask, and the appropriate recommendations to make in creating unique wedding events for couples. No task was too small and no detail too involved for Mac & B to accomplish, and they were hands-on from everything to the exact desired fold of the dinner napkins to the set-up of wish lanterns for guests to cast off the Cotton Dock.
-Katherine + Matt, River Vale, NJ
Carri and Christine-Thank you so so much for such an amazing evening! We and all our guests had such a fun time and it went so seemlessily, thanks to yall! I really cant thank you enough and feel so lucky to have worked with you! Cant wai to catch up after Thailand! Thanks again!
-Anne + Jon, Chicago, IL
Words cannot describe how amazing the two of you were. We could not have done it without you!! The day was beautiful and perfect, we can’t imagine how anything could have gone better.
-Sara + Steve, Pittsburgh, PA
I cannot say enough good about Mac and B. Christine and Carri were there for us 110 percent all the way from the beginning of our wedding planning. So many details they handled for us that made our day as stress free as possible helped us immensely. It was such a comfort knowing that their service and expertise was with us from start to finish. I am so confident that whoever is lucky enough to hire them for their services will be in excellent hands and have a beautiful wedding.
-Mary Ann, Mother of Bride
I can't say enough wonderfully amazing things about Carri and her staff!!! They made the day and months before our wedding stress free and carefree! They went above and beyond the call of duty numerous times to ensure our wedding was perfect, and it absolutely was!! Kudos to Mac and B!!!
-Jaqui + Patrick, Sullivan's Island, SC
Mac & B couldn't have done a more perfect job with our wedding! We chose the day of package. Erica helped us stay organized, met with us at our venue and did a complete walk through and ran our entire wedding rehearsal and wedding day! She helped us stay calm and she made everything flow!! I especially loved the detailed wedding rehearsal and day of itineraries that Mac & B handed out to not only the groom and I, but the entire wedding party, the flower girl and our parents!
Amazing job by amazing people! Well worth the investment!
