WHAT MAKES OUR PLANNING PROCESS UNIQUE:
Wedding planning doesn’t need to be stressful. In fact, it can (and should) be exciting and fun! Our goal is to give our clients an incredible planning experience and to make this entire process as enjoyable as possible.
In order to do this we offer our brides support in both “Full Planning” and “Month-of” capacities depending on the amount of assistance they need. But no matter how much support a bride chooses, she always has access to our incredible suite of online planning tools.
Our goal is that all of our brides feel relaxed and calm from “Yes!” to “I do!” knowing that they have an extraordinary team of planners and designers behind them every step of the way!

MEET THE CHARLESTON TEAM
Lead Charleston Wedding Planner
With award-winning designs and exceptional customer service, Chancey Charm’s team of Charleston wedding planners is led by Anna Yencho. Anna is a graduate of Erskine College, where she earned a degree in business administration and psychology. During all four years of college, she played on the volleyball team and still deeply loves the sport to this day. With her energetic, professional, and hard-working spirit, Anna brings over four years of prized event planning and design experience to her clients.
When she is not planning events, you can find Anna hanging out with her two pups–Sammi and Zoe, or roaming the historic streets of Charleston. Her favorite part of living here is the city’s storied past and strong desire to preserve its historic buildings as a way to showcase its rich history.
Why I love weddings:
Watching the Groom’s face as his soon to be wife walks towards him is the best part of the wedding for me. Some guys cry, some laugh from nervousness, some can’t move from sheer joy and shock–but there is always a reaction, and it is always a special moment.
The reason I love weddings so much is because I get to be a part of making this special moment happen. I get to be involved with a couple on one of the happiest days of their lives, and that in itself is a blessing. – Anna
MEET THE REST OF THE CHARLESTON TEAM
A Charleston native, Selena comes to Chancey Charm with over three years of wedding planning experience and an abundance of pure design talent. She’s worked alongside Anna for over two years, and consistently serves her clients with joy, hard-work and a deep love for the organization it takes to execute a flawless high-end event.
While Selena loves a classic, elegant design, she is also happy to mix it up for her clients, to ensure their personal style shines through on the wedding day. Her outgoing personality and focus on clear communication with her clients is what makes her an invaluable asset and trusted resource throughout the planning process.
Selena has been married for just over a year and has a sweet baby girl named Paisley Mae, and a golden retriever named Cooper.
Abby has been behind the scenes orchestrating beautiful events for over 7 years. She’s done it all–from planning, to catering and venues, rentals, florals, photography, and even working in a stationery store selling invitations–Abby knows pretty much every aspect of the events industry.
Even during her years at North Carolina State University, Abby was on numerous committees and was the Events Director for her sorority Kappa Alpha Theta. It’s no surprise that Abby ended up in the wedding industry!
When she’s not planning events, you can find Abby scrolling Pinterest (she has NINETY-EIGHT Pinterest boards–28 of which are strictly devoted to weddings), or trying new recipes in the kitchen. We hear she makes a mean baked ziti! Speaking of the kitchen, Abby has a thing for collecting decorative kitchen towels. She’s a sucker for a pretty design, festive print, or witty saying. She’s also a fan of the TV show Friends, and even named her two cats Phoebe and Joey after characters in the series!
Kara is originally from Greenville, SC but moved to Charleston to pursue a degree from the Culinary Institute of Charleston. She fell in love with the city because of it’s classic beauty, and never left!
Kara has been in the events industry for over 3 years, and has done everything from floral production to lighting. This lady knows how to design a gorgeous space! Her favorite part of the design process is working with her brides to pick out all of the details like the stationery, tablescape elements, and color scheme that will bring their vision to life.
When she’s not planning events, you can find her spending time at the beach, or playing with her 1 year old nephew. At the end of a long day, Kara loves watching romantic comedies. Her favorite movie growing up was The Wedding Planner (duh!).

Are you ready to hand off the stress of planning and connect with a professional planner that can make your dream wedding a reality?
As a Chancey Charm bride, you are not only getting the expertise, knowledge, and connections of the planner you are working with, but you have that kind of support from the entire Charleston team which means that you receive one of the best client experiences in the industry.
Our group of Charleston planners are seasoned, local professionals who work together to bring their client’s dream wedding to life. These ladies also have access to over a dozen national luxury wedding planners who are ready to come alongside them and offer support and guidance as they plan and execute your event. That’s what makes Chancey Charm different; we are a national team with local roots, so you get the best of both worlds!
We don’t do JUST “day-of” coordination. Instead, we offer a package called “month-of” coordination which is like “day-of”coordination–only much better because it is so much more comprehensive in terms of the support it offers our clients!
It’s a common misconception that wedding coordinators can come in on your wedding day having had no pre-planning meetings with you and ensure that everything unfolds smoothly. As professionals, we know that we need to have enough time to gather information about your event in order to manage the details you’ve put together and safeguard against any issues arising on the wedding day itself.
Therefore, our “month-of” coordination package starts one month before your wedding date to ensure that we are equipped with all the details and logistics necessary to ensure a flawless wedding day.
This package allows us to do it all for our clients! We make sure that every bride has comprehensive support through each step of the wedding planning process. We want planning to feel fun and easy, which can only happen if you’re organized and on top of things. That’s where we come in!
A lot of our brides are busy professionals who just don’t have time to take on the task of being solely responsible for planning their big day. They need someone to cut through the overwhelm, and bring them in at crucial points throughout the process. This is what we do for our full-service brides.
And since each bride is different in terms of the amount of guidance they need, we create a custom proposal to ensure that our clients have exactly the right amount of support for them. There’s not a lot that we won’t do for our full service brides!
Our goal is to respond to all communication within 48 hours during our business hours Monday through Thursday.
However, Fridays and Saturdays are typically by appointment only as those days are usually spent on-site for events and we want to ensure we can be fully present for our clients during that special time.
We do not charge our clients on an hourly basis and our planning fee does not increase as we work together. Instead, we speak with you prior to the start of planning to determine a flat fee that will cover the entirety of the process. Your investment includes unlimited communication with us and will not increase once a contract is agreed upon.
Due to the number of destination clients planning their events from afar, all of our planners use a custom, online planning system that allows our clients to be sure that all of the details of their wedding day are accounted for. What’s great about this is that you are able to watch the progress of your event from anywhere in the world!
We can (and do) plan weddings anywhere! Our majority of our weddings are specifically in Charleston, but we specialize in weddings up and down the coast–including Hilton Head, Charleston and Savannah. (We even plan destination weddings, so click here for more info on that).
Our team has worked at many of the top venues in the Charleston area and are constantly expanding the list of places where we’ve planned events. (Keep scrolling below to view our entire list).
And don’t worry if your venue is not on the list, or if you’re planning an event at a unique space like a private estate. While we understand that it can be scary trusting someone who hasn’t executed an event at your venue before, please know that we welcome the challenge and fresh energy that we get from designing an event in a new space.
WE WORK WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST!
At Chancey Charm we understand that having an amazing team is one of the keys to a successful event. This philosophy is one of the cornerstones of our brand, and is illustrated by the close relationships we have with some of the best wedding vendors in the Charleston area.
