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 WEDDING PLANNER TEAM
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!
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

cHARLESTON FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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. Click here to head to our services page to learn more about our “month-of” coordination service.
In short, we guide you and hold your hand throughout the entire process–start to finish. Since each bride is different in terms of the amount of guidance they need, we customize each proposal to fit their unique level of support. There’s not a lot that we won’t do for our full service brides!
ABSOLUTELY! We are happy to offer design services to any month of coordination package, and it’s included in our full planning packages!
Our approach to event design is one-of-a-kind and it is one of our favorite parts of the entire planning process. We start by sitting down with you and your fiancé in order to really get to know you as a couple and learn more about your personal style, then we work with you to create a comprehensive design plan outlining all of the aesthetic details for your big day so you’ll be able to envision exactly what it will look like when you celebrate with your loved ones.
Our goal is to incorporate as much of your personality and personal style into your wedding day as possible so your event feels like a beautiful representation of who you both are as a couple, rather than just a pretty “Pinterest-worthy” wedding.
We try our best to respond to all communication within 48 hours during typical business hours which are Monday-Thursday 9:00am-4:00pm EST. Fridays and Saturdays are by appointment only as those days are usually spent on-site for events.
We do not charge our clients on an hourly basis. Instead, we assess your needs during the consultation phase and determine a flat fee that will cover the entirety of the planning process. Your price will never increase once a contract is agreed upon and includes unlimited communication throughout the process.
Absolutely! Many of our clients don’t actually live in Atlanta, but choose to get married here due to the amount of the unique event opportunities, and because of the fact that Atlanta is a great hub for family and friends who may be traveling from across the country to celebrate with them.
We can (and do) plan weddings anywhere! Whether you’re in downtown Atlanta, the mountains of northern Georgia, or the shores of Savannah — we tackle it all! (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 Atlanta area and is constantly expanding the list of places where we’ve planned events. (Keep scrolling below to view the extensive list).
And don’t worry if your venue is not on the list, or if you’re planning an event at a private estate. While we understand that it can be scary trusting someone with your wedding if they haven’t worked at your venue before, rest assured, that doesn’t scare us at all! In fact, we love 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.
