I cannot say enough good things about Door County Event Planners. We had a wonderful experience planning our wedding, and it’s all thanks to Carrie. She pulled everything together flawlessly and guided us through the process with so much profes...
sionalism and kindness and generosity. She knows the Door County area better than anyone and has built really strong relationships with all of the vendors in the area. She took so much care to understand our wishes and offered her industry and area expertise at every step in order to bring our vision to life in the best possible way. She's truly the best in the business. If you're looking for a stress-free wedding planning experience and a beautiful end result, you need Carrie on your team.

We worked with Carrie and Door County Event Planners for our wedding. She was amazing. She was very flexible with us when we decided to postpone our celebration due to COVID-19. She recommended so many amazing vendors that also did a great job,...
and our big day went off without a hitch. We would not hesitate to recommend her for your wedding or event. She was organized, attentive, and in control, all while rolling with the changes that the pandemic brought upon us and our event. I wish we could get married again just so that we could work with her more - that is how great she is.

The best thing we ever did was hire Carrie. The wedding planning process can be a difficult one especially when you and your husband have previously worked in hospitality. From the beginning we knew we could trust Carrie and her team with whate...
ver came up. Having someone who is kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable helping with your big day really takes so much stress out of the process. Carrie has so many amazing connections with vendors which makes finding what you are looking for that much easier. Over our 18 months of planning Carrie always took time to return calls & emails even on vacation. It is evident by her drive why she is the best at what she does and that is simply because she cares. If you are reading this review do yourself a favor and reach out to Carrie and her team it will be the 2nd best thing you do besides of course number one which is marrying your best friend.

her, I instantly loved her. She had a nice bubbly personality. After we went home, we didn't need to discuss too much. We hired her and are so happy we did! It was both of our first weddings, and Carrie helped us through the whole process. She was super helpful with everything and did some of the more 'outgoing' things that I just don't like doing. We enjoyed each meeting with her. She gave us many recommendations and some we used, some we didn't but she didn't try to sway our minds in anything. We wouldn't change anything about having her as our planner. Our wedding was wonderful-Carrie took care of anything that popped up. Definitely recommend her.

My fiancé and I traveled 4.5 hours, late on a Weds night, to see Old Thyme Barn with Carrie last minute. She met us there the following day and immediately put pressure on us due to the fact that the barn was only able to accommodate one more ...
event for 2017. Something we were not made aware of until driving 250 miles. We loved the venue but had a lot of questions and a budget we wanted to stick to. Carrie told us that we had to let her know THAT day so that she could tell another couple traveling from MN later that evening. We then met with Chandra who was the person we would be working with if we chose the venue. Chandra answered many questions for us and told us after meeting that we did not need to let them know until the following day and that she would be giving us “the first right of refusal.” I insisted that we would let her know later that evening since she specifically told us to go “talk it over, go for a swim, have a drink and enjoy your night.” We received a condescending email from Carrie at 6 pm after emailing back and forth with Chandra which explained that it might be be best for us to go elsewhere and that we would not have first choice anymore. She told us that she runs an ethical business and since we did not let her know by the time she discussed that the other couple would have their choice of the venue. I NEVER have written a review such as this, but they treated us so terribly that I felt it was necessary. It is apparent that the communication among the planners is extremely poor. When we explained what Chandra had told us, Carrie continued to reprimand us. No apology was offered by Carrie or Chandra who were both receiving all correspondence. The worst part about it all is that we said we wanted the venue that evening even after they were treating us with disrespect and by the next morning it was reserved. It’s unfortunate that David (the barn owner) requires you to work with this company. After making a 500 mile round trip, I cannot emphasize enough how this company’s outward appearance can be deceiving.

and her team for both of their daughters' weddings, and we owe so much of our dream wedding to her planning and execution the day of. She is one of the best investments we ever made - not only because she knows the area and all of the vendors, and not just because she will go above and beyond to organize all of those different vendors, but because on the day of your wedding she will orchestrate everything to perfection, subtly nudge to give you warning before toasts, and you will get the greatest gift of just being able to EXPERIENCE your wedding day, not think about details, and not have to have a worry in the world about who is in charge of what. Thank you, Carrie, for orchestrating and helping plan the perfect wedding. You truly made our wedding vision a reality.

o use Chandra as the event coordinator. That seemed fine. I initially had some questions about the contract because there was some rather vague wording that appeared to leave the price for some things open ended. The response from Chandra was that she was too busy because it was busy season. I was then told we could bypass Chandra and her company and just use the General Manager Laura which seemed to be going fine. Then Chandra appeared back in the picture. She couldn't keep my wedding date straight and kept making it sound like she was doing me a favor. First of all, this is her job and business. She is rude, unprofessional and needs to hire an asistant if she can't even keep wedding date straight. Secondly, I didn't even want to work with her! I was being forced. So it was no favor to me. I then tried canceling my date at the venue (I hadn't signed a contract yet). I requested this at least 2 times. Once directly to Laura at Maxwelton Braes and then once in an email exchange with Chandra. After several more exchanges from Chandra (that were unwarranted, I just wanted to cancel my date) I then get a hostile email from Carrie saying it's best for their business and the venue if we part ways. That is all I had been trying to do was cancel my date, despite the fact that Chandra had no clue when my wedding was. I don't recommend this business under any circumstances.
