creative & meticulous

It's hard to think about investing in planning help when most of our wedding party, both moms, his sister, and even friends at work are full of ideas and offers of help. But when it got to the point that even managing those started to become overwhelming, we found Rebecca. We are SO glad we did!

From the first phone call, she really wanted to know all about our background, likes, dislikes and worries, along with as much as we could tell her about what we wanted out of our wedding day. She got so fluent in all of it that she could introduce things we'd never have thought of but instantly fell in love with, anticipate and resolve issues before we were even fully conscious of them, and put every worry to rest before it took hold. She's not only really creative, finding all sorts of ways to include different pieces of our story, but she's also meticulous about every detail and an inventive problem-solver besides! We never had to choose "the lesser of two evils" in any decision because no matter what the situation, she could always find more and better options.

Rebecca was the wedding blessing we weren't initially sure we needed but were so lucky to find. We truly couldn't have done it without her.
- Melissa & Andrew

the best decision we made

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Reed and I are so incredibly grateful for you! In all the hesitation around hiring a planner at all and no clear vision for our wedding, YOU were the best decision we made! Our free time was limited, we had zero knowledge of the wedding planning space, and we had only 6 months to pull it all together. We quickly recognized that we didn't know what we didn't know, so we needed someone who was up to the challenge, responsive to our many questions, yet accommodating to our busy work schedules. Oh boy, if we knew then what we know now, we would have hired you immediately following our engagement! Your knowledge of this space and the industry, your creativity, your patience, your professionalism, your ability to take an idea and turn it into a beautiful vision (and ultimately the perfect wedding day), your talent, kind-heartedness & friendship ... these are just a few of the many things we love about you! We can never thank you enough for all you did to make our day exactly what we hoped for and more. All our love!! - Amy & Reed

better at getting what you want than you are

Rebecca is amazing. She has a way of asking questions that makes her better at getting what you want than you are. Once she figured out how to implement all our half-baked ideas in a way that made sense not just thematically but logistically, she took the tone and elements we'd created and suggested tweaks we’d never have thought of. Rebecca provided services I didn't even know we needed until she was there solving problems and elevating every single element of our wedding. Her creative guidance, combined with her ability to distill your own voice and ideas in a way you don't yet realize is possible, is like nothing I’ve ever seen. - Jenn & Chase

worth every penny

After initially planning to hire someone for day-of coordination only, I'm so glad we found Rebecca and decided to do full planning instead. As I am very organized and had a vision of what I wanted, I didn't think we needed anything more than someone to manage the vendors and schedule on the day of. I was most definitely wrong ... our wedding certainly wouldn't have been the same, and may not even have been possible with just a day-of coordinator. There are so many details and unforeseen difficulties that arise in all weddings — but particularly in planning a destination wedding — and I'm glad we had a professional to help us troubleshoot all along the way. We worked with Rebecca for an entire year, and she was always readily available for every (seemingly endless) uncertainty or crazy new idea I had. Her planning software made communication, sharing inspiration photos, and keeping all brainstorming and planning details organized easy and constantly accessible to all involved. It was worth every penny to have Rebecca to juggle the many intricacies of planning a destination wedding and problem-solve every minuscule (or at times large) issue that I otherwise would have struggled with from states away. Most importantly, on the day of, we didn't have a single worry and could focus solely on enjoying the day, as we knew Rebecca would handle any "fires" that did arise and make sure everything went off without a hitch. I would definitely recommend Rebecca to anyone planning a wedding. She'll help create the wedding you imagined via Pinterest, including ideas you hadn't even considered and resolving issues you couldn't have foreseen. - Dany & James

extraordinary knowledge & a little bit of magic

Daniel and I didn’t know anything about wedding planning or design, so we thought it would be a good idea to have a little more help than we thought we'd need. It was definitely the right decision! We had a basic concept — a nautical wedding, but not the cliché nautical wedding with navy and coral and anchors everywhere — but Rebecca had a vision, and she turned that vision into a reality that included everything we wanted and more.

She asked questions I would have never thought about, came up with a way to tie all our ideas together, helped us customize our color scheme, added some rustic coastal touches, and even tracked down a lot of the décor herself. Her attention to detail was amazing!

She also has extraordinary knowledge on everything that has to do with weddings, and she's great at coming up with plan B's and even plan C's. When something didn’t work out right in our favor, she was quick to go through her bag of tricks to see what kind of magic she could pull out. (When our ideas for a wedding-night hotel fell through at the very last minute, she even found us a one-night stay in an adorable B&B downtown that was well under our budget!) Not only was she my planner, she was our friend and confidante, guiding us through all kinds of family dynamics and always knowing not just what to say but how to reach a compromise to make everyone (but mostly me!) happy. Once it was time for the wedding, she took over the reins completely and eliminated a ton of stress by having not only vendors but wedding party and family address details and any questions directly with her.

Seeing all the magic that happened on the wedding day was amazing, and I couldn’t have done it without her.
- Sydney & Daniel

every detail perfectly planned

Where do I begin to rave about Rebecca and her team? I would 100% recommend her services to any bride in need of a wedding planner! Not only was she flawless the day of, but she assisted for 6 months leading up to the big day. From vendor recommendations to budgeting to linen colors, Rebecca was there every step of the way. Every detail of the wedding was perfectly planned and it would not have been nearly as wonderful without her and her dedicated team. THANK YOU, Rebecca and Honeysuckle Events, for the best night of my life. - Lisa & Will

dream come true

As the mother of the bride trying to plan a wedding in one city with my daughter four hours away in another, I knew I needed help. I can't tell you how wonderful Rebecca is. She was a dream come true for us. Her attention to detail is amazing. She was always there in times of stress and relieved us of most of it. Rebecca is an amazing event planner, and you will not be disappointed with her services. Thank you, Rebecca, for helping my daughter achieve the wedding of her dreams. - Susan

just what we needed

When we began planning our wedding, we decided we wanted to handle all the details ourselves so that everything would have our personal touch ... we were sure nobody else would be able to see our vision and we'd end up with a 'cookie-cutter' wedding. But when I started waking up in the middle of the night with thoughts of details not yet addressed and choices not yet made, we realized we were close to being overwhelmed. By the end of our first meeting with Rebecca, I was convinced that she not only could see our vision but was just what we needed to actually pull it off. She helped us refine our ideas in ways we'd never have thought of, and offered suggestions and encouragement without ever making us feel like we'd left our original concept behind. On our wedding day, Rebecca and her team brought our dreams to life. They turned our rented tent into a magical outdoor reception space, highlighted with an amazing display of family photos in our 'family tree.' Of course, they also coordinated all the vendor activities, running interference as needed and allowing us to completely enjoy our day without ever thinking about what was next on the schedule. - Nicki & Tracy

tireless energy & enthusiasm

I don't think I could ever find enough words to adequately tell you how much we appreciate your help. Over the past several months, you've been our guide, our confidante, our right hand (and sometimes left, too), and our new friend. We never would have made it without you! Thank you for all of your organization, your amazing ideas, your tireless energy and enthusiasm, and your electric cattle-prodding as necessary. And thank you for listening, advising, laughing and crying with us. - Lynn & Peter

the best decision we made (again)

Rebecca and her team truly saved the day when my wife and I got married. With strong organizational skills, plus experience in catering and hosting large parties, we were convinced we could handle the planning of our wedding on our own. But that fanciful notion went out the window pretty quickly when we realized we wouldn't enjoy the months before the wedding, much less the wedding day itself, without help. Turning to Rebecca was the best decision we made during the entire planning process! She brought a large variety of creative suggestions, as well as an analytical eye, to the things we said we wanted to do. She spent a great deal of time with us gaining an understanding of how we wanted our day to go and what our true priorities were, then used those insights to research the realities as well as alternatives for the plans we were making. She brought back logical, organized information about costs and logistical details, which let us make much better-educated decisions. It all paid off: Every detail of our wedding day was perfect! - Susan & Melanie

experience & insight

Working with Rebecca was amazing! We had so much chemistry — talking to her about my wedding ideas was like talking to an old friend. She was excited about my ideas, but even better, she had the experience and insight to turn them into reality. I felt like she really cared about me as a person and us as a couple, and was completely invested in giving us treasured memories of our special day. With her at the helm, I was able to relax and enjoy the ride. The BEST thing that happened to me during the planning process was my future mother-in-law bringing Rebecca's skills to my attention! - Megan & Danny

amazing day!

Without a doubt, bringing Rebecca on board was the smartest money we spent. We hit so many bumps in the road that, in hindsight, I don't know what we would have done without her wrangling all of the meetings, tours, tastings and payments. She introduced us to a venue that met all our requirements and — after we'd fallen in love with it but thought we’d have to pass because of the cost — found a deal that made it a reality. And when we decided at the last minute that we wanted to do pies for our dessert, she located an adorable pastry shop 10 minutes away from our venue that was willing to take us on. She worked easily with all our vendors, bringing everything together more seamlessly than I thought was possible. Finally, the timeline – which seemed so complex at first glance – ended up being a walk in the park on our end. Once we approved it, we never gave it another thought. With every single decision, we just had to show up and tell her whether or not we liked something, and she created a wedding out of it. Thanks, Rebecca — you gave us an amazing day! - Elizabeth & Lawrence

I don't think we could have done it without you

Rebecca, I don't even know where to start. You've truly been a Godsend to us, and we are so grateful not only for your help with our wedding, but for our new friendship. I don't think we could have done this without you before our health crisis ... and certainly couldn't have pulled it off afterwards. Thank you for all your work, support and love. - Kelley & Mitch

she got exactly what we were going for

Rebecca was just wonderful! We had only a few vague, unrelated ideas about what we wanted — pirates, princesses, plenty of purple and vintage touches, a little bit of Disney, and lots and lots of books — but from the beginning, she understood exactly what we were going for. She came up with a concept that wove all of it, along with many of her own suggestions, into a coherent, quirky wedding that was totally us. From the moment she came on board, our wedding planning was totally stress-free. Not only is she super-easy to work with, but she helped us find a great deal on the perfect venue, had great insights on vendors, worked magic with our budget, and was so tuned in to every detail that we could enjoy not only the wedding day but our entire engagement. We can’t thank her enough! - Caitie & Curt

a perfect day without ANY stress

I’ll sum it up for you. Our wedding wouldn’t have been as wonderful, on time, organized, and beautiful without Rebecca. I highly recommend her to whoever is looking for their perfect day without ANY stress. She thought of everything I would need and then some! - Callie & Travis

every step of the way

'Thank you' seems like such small words for what you have done! It's not easy turning over a day of such importance to another, but you have made me feel fortunate that you were there every step of the way. Your words of wisdom and years of experience are truly priceless. It has been a pleasure, and I would highly recommend you to anyone! - Mary & Bill

artistic eye & keen vision

Rebecca's sensitivity and artistic eye marry magically with her attention to detail and keen vision of the big picture. Her actions speak for themselves, so let me give you an example of how she takes the time to fully understand her clients: When Rebecca swung by the florist's the day before the wedding and saw my bouquets ready to go for the next day, she realized that the flowers the florist had received, although the same variety we'd been told would fit my vision, were much more red than deep pink. I know this seems like a small quibble, but the new shade fought with the paper flowers that I'd hand-made to include in the bouquets. There was a lot of sentimental weight surrounding those paper flowers; they were my favorite thing to tell people about for our wedding. Rebecca knew what they meant to me, so she worked out a stunning alternative with the florist before it became my problem. She presented the substitution to me for final approval, but because the problem was basically solved by the time it was brought to my attention, I didn't spend a second worrying. They say that there's one disaster and one miracle on every person's wedding day. Well, I know Rebecca was the miracle, but if there was a disaster, I never heard about it. - Leslie & TJ

so much less stressful

Thank you so much for your amazing help with our wedding! It was a huge relief knowing we had a professional ensuring that the day would turn out to be our dream wedding. I really appreciated your insight, thoughts, and guidance on making the day run smoothly ... you made the whole planning process so much less stressful. It's been such a pleasure working with you. - Ashley & Gerald

organization & attention to detail

Thank goodness for Rebecca and Honeysuckle Events. We planned our wedding from out of state while buying a new house and going to graduate school. Without her organization, attention to detail, and great working relationship with other vendors, we never could have had the wedding of our dreams. I cannot thank her team enough and wouldn't have changed a thing! - Lakota & Harry

truly amazing

My wedding was a destination wedding to North Topsail, and I had to plan everything from Kansas! I would not have been able to plan this wedding without Rebecca. She is AMAZING — and the perfect yin to my yang. She would listen to my ideas, and help me improve my own wedding designs. She has amazing knowledge about flowers, and was able to suggest the right flower combinations to go with my overall vision! She knew the perfect bakers and caterers, which I booked on her suggestion alone since I couldn't fly down to taste-test. If you're wondering, the flowers were perfect and the food tasted DELICIOUS! I didn't think I would need a wedding planner, but Rebecca made the whole process so much better. Not only did she help me plan the wedding, she was a life-saver on the wedding day. She helped coordinate the vendors, set up the reception area, and even made the arbor look amazing in the hot NC heat! Having a wedding planner only helps a bride: the wedding planner asks the right questions, coordinates with vendors, and lets you relax on your wedding day. Rebecca is truly amazing at her job, and you can tell that she loves her work! - MK & Bart

my dream wedding

Where do I even start with Rebecca?! She was absolutely amazing. I can honestly say that I had my dream wedding, and I have to say a huge part was due to having her by my side. Rebecca was not only our coordinator, but she created a vision board when we first started the planning process, which helped create a stunning wedding. She was always there for advice when needed, as well as much needed guidance when we felt "stuck." The timeline she created for the day of the wedding was loved by all of my vendors. They were appreciative of her efficiency, as was I. I could not imagine my wedding going any better, and I am truly thankful we decided to hire Rebecca. - Claire & Will

detailed & thorough

Rebecca is very detailed and will make sure that everything you want — and things you didn’t even know you needed — will be done. She is very thorough and her suggestions on vendors were perfect. Her assistant on the day of the wedding was so sweet and fun as well. - Kristi & Rich
