"We live in NY but got married in CHS and I was very nervous about how things would turn out. 200 people! Yikes! It turned out to be the most incredible weekend I could ever imagine, thanks to Mike Winship. I was definitely not an easy bride; wanted a lot of weird things and was very indecisive and picky, and Mike rolled with every punch. When it came to the day of, I didn’t have to think about anything. Mike took care of it all, even going the extra mile to bring all my brides people’s stuff back to our beach house at the end of the night. He is a total doll, a total blast, a force to be reckoned with. He knows everybody and gets stuff done. We love ya, Mike!"

"Even though we live in the Charleston area, we never could have pulled off our daughter's wedding as flawlessly as Michael Winship, the owner of Charleston Wedding Planner did. From picking a date, a venue, the caterer, the lighting, the decor, the flowers, the band, contingency plans for rain or cold, everything was covered. His suggestions and directions on the items traditionally attended to by the family were also excellent. He knows this market inside and out. We had 170 guests, 80% from out of town on one of the busiest weekends of the year in Charleston, and they were unanimous in their praise. Virtually everyone said it was the most fun, least stressful wedding they had ever attended. As the father of the bride, I agree. It could not have gone more smoothly. I have another daughter who is getting married next year in New York. I just hope the wedding planner we have engaged there is close to Michael in knowledge and professionalism. After our experience with Michael, I wouldn't consider anyone else for the Charleston market."

"Although we both live in Ohio now, my husband is originally from Ohio and I am from Alabama so we decided on a southern destination wedding in Charleston. Knowing that a majority of our planning would need to be done remotely, I wanted to make sure we had a top notch, full service wedding planner, and that is what we found with Mike Winship. From the first time I spoke with Mike over the phone, I knew that he was going to be a great addition to our planning process. The very first thing he did was ask what my opinions were and what I was looking for on our wedding day and then provided TONS of recommendations to help make those dreams come true. Mike was there every step of the way, from helping arrange venue visits, attending tastings, setting up the reception venue, to opening the door at the church for me to walk down the aisle. Overall, Mike did an excellent job at the one thing that was most important to me, he helped me have a completely stress free and wonderful wedding day!"

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mike! He was the perfect person to plan our wedding. From our first meeting, he made us feel totally at ease and understood the vision that I had for our wedding. He was so kind and genuine and truly cared about making our day perfect. He was constantly in contact with the vendors, ensuring every detail was perfect for our day. As a night shift nurse, I have very little day time to spare. Mike was always understanding and my made the planning process easy and effortless. Our day was more beautiful that I could have imagined, and mike kept the night running so smoothly. I don’t know what I would have done without him! Every vendor that I chose was incredible- and all his recommendations. He always responded to my millions of questions within minutes to hours. He will definitely be a lifelong friend and I am so happy we chose him to plan our wedding. 5 stars for Mike, you won’t regret it!"
