When thinking of planning for our wedding, we realized that we needed a wedding planner due to our busy work and family schedule. We asked a friend in the wedding business for three referrals and one was Crystal McCorkle. Crystal was the immediate standout as a complete professional, dedicated to making our wedding day exactly as we imagined and more.
Throughout the process, Crystal advised on known and "unknown" aspects of the wedding with sound advice and recommendations. She was available when needed and always thinking of unique and creative ways to make the day special. She was deliberate and gracious in her engagement with all wedding stakeholders and vendors. Her communication was excellent and we had full trust that her engagement would be in our best interest, and it was!
Our wedding day was amazing and beautiful. Crystal had *everything* covered and we did not worry one bit. She managed all of the vendors (with advance planning & day of) and made sure the flow of the evening was perfect! Without exaggeration, we owe our wedding day success to Crystal. It was everything we had hoped for and much more. If there were any challenges on the day of, we never knew about them because she was there every step of the way.
Without hesitation, we would recommend Crystal to plan your special day!

My wedding day was more than I could have ever dreamed it would be; it was absolutely perfect!! Planning with Crystal is like planning with the help of your best friend, if that friend happened to be the BOMB at planning weddings! Seriously, Crystal quickly became like family and we learned very early on to trust her opinions and ideas, to the point where we both found ourselves saying more often than not, "whatever you think Crystal." She understood our vision and gave us a wedding better than we could have imagined. We cannot recommend Crystal and her team more emphatically - a sheer joy to work with from beginning to end!

Crystal and the Fabulously Created Events team was more then 5 stars. As the bride, I could not have asked for a better coordinator for my wedding. We hired Crystal to be our coordinator and she was "on it" from the time we hired her. We met and she took over everything. After our meeting, when I left her office, I knew that our wedding day was in the right hands. She is very sweet, professional, and she will do whatever you need to make things happen! Crystal is only a phone call, email, or text away!! You will have no problems reaching her!!
The day before she made sure rehearsal went smooth and she answered any questions and concerns that needed to be handled. The day of the wedding, we were speechless. She checked in with me early in the morning, she made sure our bridal party was set, she worked well with all of our vendors, even our photographers who were from out of town. Crystal even pulled me to the side as a big sister to calm my nerves. She reminded me that everything was going to be okay and all I needed to do was enjoy the moment. Her team and her collaboration with Carolina Luxury for decor and floral services was everything Brooks and I wanted!! We trusted her with the The WOW vision on the rooftop and it came true. We were so pleased!!! During the reception I worried about NOTHING because Crystal and her team made sure that Brooks and I stayed on the dance floor all night while her and her team worked behind the scenes.
I have to say to any bride, that you must choose Fabulously Created Events because you will be so pleased and at peace on your wedding day. They will fit right in to your big day and become family. Crystal and her team will make sure that you are walking the red carpet for the entire experience. I want to do it all over again just to have fun with Crystal and her team!! Thank you so much for making our day come true!!!

Literally, the best wedding investment I spent for my entire wedding! Crystal McCorkle and her team were PHENOMENAL throughout the wedding planning process. She couldn't have been more lovely as a person and she has a way about her that commands attention and respect while maintaining courtesy and professionalism. Her attention to detail was fantastic, which resulted in a FLAWLESS wedding. Keep in mind that we had to do most of our communication long distance as I had to abruptly move during wedding planning 3 states away. Not only was my wedding party in love with her, many of my guest were equally impressed with her coordination. My family and I were blown away by her organizational skills and overall as a bride, she treats you like a queen. Future brides, should you decide to hire a planner, I highly recommend Crystal and her team to help plan your dream wedding. Thank you Crystal and team for making my wedding day beautiful, organized and a stress free day!
Mrs. Sheila Spotts Murphy
I honestly don't know where to start when I think about the amazing job Crystal did planning our wedding. I came to Crystal with a blank slate; I had no knowledge about the planning process at all. I was quite scared. After our initial meeting, I knew I wanted Crystal to plan our wedding. I immediately felt at ease and it was completely evident that Crystal knew what she was doing. She went above and beyond the call of duty. She scheduled and attended every vendor meeting. She answered every text and phone call. The planning process was seamless. On the actual day of our wedding, Crystal was nothing short of Superwoman. She made sure we stayed on schedule, and the entire event was FLAWLESS. If there was anything that went wrong, my family and I had no clue about it. Crystal and her entire team were professional, accommodating, and genuinely caring. I could not have asked for a better planner. She took my vision and brought it to life in ways that I could not have even imagined myself. EVERY person that has spoken to me about the wedding mentions what an awesome job Crystal did. If you are looking for a planner, please look NO further. It does not get any better than Crystal!!!"
I'm going to miss you!!
Mrs. Christina Tobin
Crystal started off as simply our planner, a person to help me through the planning process so I could enjoy the ride. Over the next year, Crystal became an integral part of our life. Between all the texts, emails, and phone calls, I think I spoke with her more times than I did some of my closest friends. But that’s what sets Crystal apart from the other planners. When you hire her, you get HER! She doesn’t pass you off to her assistant or intern. You get her. For every appointment, for every meeting, for everything you need to make your wedding day special, you get her. When I bought my shoes, she was there. When I was running around town picking up the final touches for the big day, she was with me. She truly invests her time, energy, and love into each client, so you feel as if you’re her only client. She wants your special day to be one that you (and your guests) remember for years to come and she doesn’t disappoint. From helping us remember our late fathers throughout the ceremony to making sure my sick mom was cared for during our formal pictures, Crystal thought of everything. She made the details just as important as the big picture and we couldn’t have been happier.
She's phenomenal in the pre-wedding planning process; but it's the Day Of that truly shows you why her events are Fabulously Created. Her vision and magic came together for something we couldn't have imagined because it was better. She orchestrated an amazing day that we will forever remember as well as our guests.
It goes without saying that I highly recommend Crystal. She’s a phenomenal planner and an exceptional friend that has now become family. We look forward to using her for future celebrations and special events. Thank you Crystal for everything you and your team did to make our day spectacular!
Mrs. Pasha Bey
I would like to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to Crystal McCorkle and her wonderful crew at Fabulously Created Events. Crystal and her team did an absolutely great job, more than I could have ever hoped for on one of the most important days of my daughters life. I hired Fabulously Created Events to help me with all the preparations in the last days of putting together a beautiful, magical wedding evening. Crystal and her team turned an average golf course and reception room into a fairytale and dream come true for my daughter and son-in-law. Kyndra and William were mesmerized by everything from the ceremony with all the personal touches to the beautiful and enchanting reception to celebrate with family and friends. It was a day they will never forget!
If you are looking for someone that will listen to what you want and will be there when you need them (she even pulled of getting Ted Ginn Jr. from the Carolina Panthers to surprise Kyndra and Will) and make sure every detail is to your satisfaction, than I highly recommend Fabulously Created Events and the fabulous Crystal McCorkle. Thank you so much for everything you did and for helping me personally to make my daughter and son-in-law so happy. We loved everything.
Sincerely a Satisfied Client,
Mrs. Cyndy Brann, Mother of the Bride
This review is rather difficult for me to begin because there are not enough positive words or thoughts in the world to express how much Fabulously Created Events, especially Crystal McCorkle, did for us to create our dream wedding day.
Crystal is kind, beyond professional and above all she DELIVERS. This is an understatement. Crystal knew we were looking for a very unique wedding experience with a lot of personal touches and details. I was confident that she and her team were going to pull off our dream wedding. But when we had to change the venue(s) for both ceremony and reception merely 72 hours before our nuptials (hurricane Joaquin)…Crystal's calm and "get it done" attitude got me through the most stressful experience as a bride! When I walked into a venue that I had never imagined being our venue for the first time-Crystal had taken our vision and executed to a level I never dreamed possible. It was PERFECT.
Crystal made our dream come true even when we thought our dream had fallen apart. Forever we will be thankful for everything she did to give us the best day of our lives!
Fabulously Created Events is incredible! We will always recommend them to brides to be...you will not be disappointed!
Mrs. Michelle McCartney
Crystal and her team were AMAZING to work with. Crystal made sure all of the details of our wedding were taken care of and took all the stress of planning off our shoulders. With an outdoor wedding, weather is always unpredictable but she was very understanding and extremely helpful when we changed the ceremony site twice the day of the wedding. She even went as far as to go and purchase clear umbrellas to have on site in the event it rained (and it did!) After a rain storm, she and her team had to move over 100 chairs while still managing to be at tentative to our guest and wedding party. She even helped with the smallest details like booking appointments for my bridesmaids and I to be pampered the day before our wedding. We would most definitely recommend Crystal to anyone looking for planning assistance with their wedding or event. Thank you!
Mrs. Morgan Streng
For anyone seeking wedding planning services, I would like to recommend Crystal and Fabulously Created Events! For over a year, Crystal diligently planned our wedding, communicated with all of our vendors, and left us with total peace of mind. Crystal helped us find vendors within our budget and kept us ahead of schedule so that we could remain stress-free. Andre and I are over the moon at how beautiful our wedding turned out. Everything ran smoothly and the Fabulously Created Events team made us feel like royalty on our wedding day, taking care of even the smallest details before we could even think of them. The level of service and the team's attention to detail is top notch! My only regret is that it's over. Be prepared to be amazed!
Mrs. Kendra Bentley
Thank you so much for everything you did to help make our wedding weekend fabulous and the wedding day exactly how we dreamed it would be. You not only kept us on track throughout the planning process but also reminded us of many details we may not have thought of. You were very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. The wedding day was absolutely perfect! This allowed Jacob and I to enjoy the day to the fullest! Thank you again for everything you and your staff did to make our vision a reality.
Mrs. Jennifer Pope
Crystal Govan McCorkle made my entire wedding week! The planning of my bachelorette party, my bridal shower, and by wedding was absolutely beautiful! Things couldn't have gone any smoother and stress free with all the planning done by Crystal. Christian and I loved every second of it. We love you! ❤
Mrs. Anna Johansson
Wow is all I can say about Crystal Govan McCorkle and Fabulously Created Events! From the Bachelorette Party, the Bridal Shower to the Wedding Day…. I could not have been more satisfied! Crystal, you are really working your passion and it showed through everything you did the entire week for my best friend Anna! If anyone out there is looking for an event planner, stop looking, Fabulously Created Events is it! xoxo
Crystal, you did an absolutely amazing job of turning our wedding vision into a reality! Thank you to you and your team for problem solving, keeping us calm, thinking of every detail and getting it right the first time! Cale Wolfe and I are brainstorming on what event we can have so we can hire you all over again. Thank you Crystal!
Mrs. Amanda Wolfe
One of the best things about my wedding was entrusting Fabulously Created Events to orchestrate my day. Crystal created an event that was so beautiful and it was executed flawlessly. My husband and I were able to truly enjoy our day because she (Crystal) took care of everything. There aren't enough words to express how thankful we are for what you've done for us!
Adrian and I thank you so much for planning our wedding. From our first meeting at Crave, you have been a great planner and a friend to us both. We appreciate the time and energy you have dedicated to us over the past six months. We pray God's continued blessings upon you, your family, and Fabulously Created Events! Many Thanks!
Mrs. Michelle Marks
Thank you for all your assistance with our wedding. All we have received are compliments from our family and friends. Thinking back on our day, it was wonderful and there was nothing we would have changed! Thank you!
Tricia and Matt Walters
Crystal, I cannot express enough how pleased I was with your excellent execution of my daughter Eryn and new son in law, Gerard's wedding. From the moment we stepped into your office and expressed the couples vision, you took it on and made it a beautiful reality. Well done and thank you for rescuing us! You are indeed, fabulous!
Terry Pinkney, Mother of the Bride
Thank you for an awesome "red carpet and award winning" 10 year anniversary "turn up!" Everything was fabulous! We will remember this celebration for years to come. We pray that you and Fabulously Created Events will continue to prosper and that your territory will continue to be enlarged. Continue to use your God given gift and talents.
Love and Blessings,
Pastor Franklin and Karen Watkins
It's Tuesday April 28th, and I wanted to take a moment to send a letter of thanks and express my appreciation for the excellent job you did in directing the Green/Zamor Wedding last Saturday, April 25th. Crvstal it was an absolutely beautiful affair. I commend you for your professionalism, your inclusiveness, and your very detailed yet "easy to follow" itinerary of the events for both Friday rehearsal, and Saturday wedding.
I've been officiating weddings for over 20 years, and I must say as a Wedding/Event Planner you are very impressive. Once again thank you so much for creating such a beautiful space and atmosphere for the "Zamor 4" and all of their family, friends, and loved ones to share in their celebration of love and marriage.
In the future if I'm ever asked for referrals for wedding event planners I can guarantee you that your company will come highly recommended. Well done Crystal! Well done.
Dr. Haven O. Anderson, Pastor
