Get To Know Anna Yencho, Your Charleston Wedding Planner
- Do you have any pet? I have two dogs: Sammi, a 4 year old brindle, akita lab mix, and Zoe, a 1 year old beagle dachshund mix.
- What is your favorite aspects of a wedding day (great food, great wine, live music, etc.)? I love seeing everyone getting together and having a great time- that includes the amazing food, fabulous drinks, and a fun, live band!
- What is your favorite part about their city/where you live? I love the romantic history of Charleston. The city makes sure to preserve their historic buildings and makes a point to showcase this history as much as possible.
- What is your favorite Sunday activity? I love taking naps on Sunday afternoons!
- What is your favorite book or magazine? My favorite book is Pirates, a book I read in high school that I continue to read over and over again. It is just that good!
- How would you describe your personal style? My style is girly and eclectic, but I love comfort as well.
My favorite moment at every wedding starts when the Bride is about to walk down the aisle. I get to fix her veil, fluff her train, and watch her father kiss her cheek. When she is ready, I open the door and send her down the aisle to her waiting husband to be. This next part is why I love weddings: watching the Groom’s face as his soon to be wife walks towards him. 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.

- What makes your team different from the other planners I am talking to?
Our Charleston clients are served by a team of experienced, local planners, ensuring excellent customer service for every Chancey Charm client. Our team has access to professional wedding planning mentors and a team of wedding planners to help with sourcing and problem solving, as they plan. We also have behind the scenes business support, allowing us to completely focus on planning your wedding. Finally, our design board and sketching process make our planning and design services first class.
- I just need day-of. Do you offer that?
Of course! We are devoted to an exceptional client and guest experience, so our Day-Of or Month-Of package is a bit more extensive than the standard coordination package most planners offer.
- What exactly is full-service wedding planning and design?
Our full-service wedding planning and design package includes everything you need to plan your wedding from start to finish. This package has an emphasis on custom design, details and a seamless guest experience. Contact us for an in-depth description of every service this package includes. Most of our clients customize this package to meet their exact needs.
- Can you help me with the design?
Wedding design is absolutely our passion! Our custom design experience is included in our full-service wedding planning package and offers creative direction and inspiration during the entire wedding planning experience. Click here to check out our online wedding design boards, these boards capture our client’s vision and feature a collection of color palettes, layouts, pictures, and fabrics. Using a collaborative, design process allows our team to communicate clearly with the client, as well as to each vendor that is a part of your wedding.
- What kind of response time do you have? How do you run your day to day communication?
We consider ourselves creatives, but we function as a professional business responding to emails in a timely manner during business hours. Our typical office hours are Monday – Thursday 9am – 4pm, leaving weekends for events.
- Do you charge by the hour? Will my planning fee increase later in our time working together?
We absolutely do not charge by the hour. Why? Because we believe that communication is a key to our success. Rather than charging based on a set number of hours, we give one flat up-front fee. This fee never increases later in the process and includes unlimited contact as needed.
- Do you work with destination clients?
Yes, this is our sweet spot! Actually, the majority of our clients are having a destination wedding, as Charleston is such a hot spot for destination weddings. Our custom, online planning system ensures all the details are covered, even when planning from afar! We also work with destination clients internationally.
- Where do you plan weddings?
Great question! We are happy to plan destination affairs wherever our clients would like to go. From Charleston, we specialize in weddings up and down the east coast, including Hilton Head, Charleston and Savannah.
