Karina and Magnolia Affairs are absolutely awesome. I really don’t know where I would have been without Karina and her crew. My now husband and I are from coastal Virginia, but live in Nantucket Massachusetts. We decided to have our wedding on Nantucket. Planning a wedding anywhere is difficult but 30 miles out to sea there can be some challenges. Karina came into our lives and completely took charge and made wedding planning on Nantucket look seamless. She was in constant communication with our photographers and vendors. The day of the wedding she was at the venue bright and early. She knew exactly what we wanted, and made my vision even more beautiful than I could have imagined! If you’re considering hiring Magnolia Affairs for your wedding let me save you the time and stress in deciding... Do it! I swear it’ll be the smartest decision you make on your wedding day besides marrying the one you love.
When I started planning my wedding, I did not want to get a planner, but I'm so happy we did and so happy we chose Karina and Magnolia Affairs! We had chosen the majority of our vendors already, but Karina offered fabulous suggestions for the rest. We didn't have a specific vision for our Lowcountry wedding, so we told Karina what colors we liked and let her do the rest! In addition to creating a beautiful backdrop for our special day, Karina was essential in making the day run smoothly. From reassuring my mom that it wouldn't rain to making sure our flameless candles had batteries just hours before the reception, she took care of everything. Throughout the planning process, Karina worked with our busy schedule and made time to videochat with us since we live in Florida. We are so grateful for Karina and her team for helping us plan a beautiful wedding ceremony and throw a party we'll always remember.

If you're not sure if you "need" a wedding planner/ day of coordinator... let me tell you, you do! Karina made planning (our second wedding) a breeze. She brought our vision to life and took care of all the day of "things". Not only did she make our wedding day a dream, but she helped organize the most perfect rehearsal dinner. I'm really not sure what I would have done without her. She's seriously the greatest, ever.
Our wedding was 8/3/19 at Dataw Island, and hiring Karina as our month-of coordinator was not just a purchase but an investment! My parents and I agree that the decision to use Magnolia Affairs was the best vendor choice of our entire wedding. Leading up to the wedding, Karina was there to answer any etiquette questions and logistical questions that I had during planning. Then, Karina took care of everything on the day-of, allowing me and my family to relax and enjoy the day without worries of anything happening. During the wedding and reception, she kept everything running smoothly and was available for any request or question that I had to ensure a wonderful and memorable evening. She took care of me and my groom, getting our drinks and hunting down my favorite flavor of cake. My parents even raved about her actions after the wedding, packing all the decor up and loading it into cars herself. I cannot recommend Karina enough as a wedding planner if you want peace of mind and to feel truly taken care of! Thank you so much, Karina!

"I began working with Karina over a year and half ago and what a wonderful year and a half it was! My fiancé proposed and I ventured out to find a wedding venue and by chance found myself the best wedding planner I could have ever asked for! Karina was extremely accommodating, being that I was a local bride and a teacher, she was always willing to meet me at coffee shops around town town and even evenings to make sure she was accommodating my schedule! I am also not originally from the area so my family was all out of town, and having Karina there was like having a second MOH! My favorite thing about Karina was she knew how to perfectly handle my anxiety and to always reassure me that everything was going to be perfect. She listened to me and gave the best advice when it came to the difficult wedding decisions! There was a time in my life where I thought, yeah I can plan a wedding myself, looking back, I truly do not even know what I would have done if I did not have Karina by my side. Trust me it is so worth it! The stress that was relieved from me the month before my wedding, and especially the week of my wedding was worth gold to me. She took care of everything so I could spend the entire week with my family. From making phone calls, to decorating, and to ultimately making my wedding day the most amazing day I could have ever asked for! My bridal party and family have continued to even rave over how amazingly planned and organized my wedding was! Karina is an amazing person inside and out and will make your wedding day everything you dreamed of and more! Thank you Karina, Seth and I are still so honored to have had you be apart of our special day!"

Karina is absolutely fantastic! . From our very first meeting Karina put us at ease and assured us that we were a priority to her. Her warm and welcoming demeanor made her so fun to work with. Communication was a breeze with Karina. Depending on what we needed to accomplish we were able to have a quick phone call or facetime meeting and she responded via text/email so quickly. On top of being super organized, Karina came ready to share ideas to help enhance our day. The last month before our event Karina was invaluable. From helping settle nerves to coordinating day of vendors, we literally had NOTHING to worry about with zero hiccups. Thank you so much, Karina!! We couldn't have done this without you.

We were married in August 2017 in Hilton Head, SC. Karina was our wedding coordinator and she was simply amazing! She was there for us throughout the entire planning process; communications were through email, text or calls and were always returned immediately or within only a few hours. This was especially important since it was a destination wedding and we relied on her suggestions and expertise to make many decisions . She made our wedding day experience so pleasant and stress free!! She decorated everything so beautifully even adding some extra touches of her own, and she made sure that every last detail was taken care of so that the day went by smoothly. She was always there making sure we had everything we needed. She seemed to be everywhere all at once, whether it was making sure we had all the food and drinks we wanted, our parents had drinks or whatever they needed, assisting my sister-in-law carry the stroller down the stairs to help walk her son, to helping the photographer capture the pictures she wanted and many other tasks to make the day go as planned. We did not know how she did it ALL! She even made sure we had appetizers and cupcakes saved in the bridal suite so we did not miss out. We cannot say enough about her, she is amazing! Without hesitation, we would recommend Karina as an excellent wedding coordinator/event planner. Book her now if you are beginning to plan a wedding you will not be disappointed!!

We had our daughters wedding in HH over the weekend. We are from out of state and struggled to select vendors. I hired Karina Crockett to coordinate the reception.
Words can not describe how well she did with every single aspect. Karina went beyond the call of duty to ensure the event was perfect and as little stress as possible. I wish I had hired her to coordinate the entire wedding. She oversaw all vendors drop off, during and after the reception and cleaned up everything and I did nothing!! That was wonderful and I’m so thankful for their hard work. She even found an affordable lighting person and last minute microphone and that made a huge difference in the success of the reception.
I highly recommend her to everyone!!!! Karina is a rockstar and without a doubt worth every penny she was paid.
Five stars isn’t enough. She went beyond that!
Thank you Karina for your role in making our daughters wedding perfect.

5 Stars- My husband and I got married last September in Hilton Head, and Karina coordinated our wedding. From start to finish, she was organized and on top of things, and put us both at ease in regards to planning our wedding from afar. She provided us with a large selection of highly reputable vendors in Hilton Head and we went solely on her recommendations for many of the vendors we used for our wedding- we could not have been more pleased!! She was very flexible and accommodating when we made changes to things like reception layout, menu, linens, etc. She was very gracious to work with an out of town florist (who my husband and I had worked with previously) and everything turned out beautifully. We made several trips to Hilton Head before the wedding, and Karina met with us each time- She was very thorough and made sure all our questions were answered and every small detail taken care of before we left. The wedding day itself could not have run more smoothly and was absolutely perfect- she made sure the day was absolutely flawless, and it is a day we will remember forever. We heard nothing but amazing feedback from our guests about how well put together our wedding was, and we cannot recommend Karina enough for coordinating your Hilton Head wedding!!
Karina helped coordinate my wedding in June 2017. She was absolutely amazing! I had a million questions and she literally helped me every step of the way. At one point I was unsure about finances and she literally broke down everything for me to help me find the best deal. She made our wedding day perfect! People continue to brag about how organized, smooth and just gorgeous our wedding was. The day of my wedding I literally didn’t worry about anything and when I arrived at the ceremony it was absolutely everything I ever wanted. I would highly recommend Karina to anyone planning a wedding!

We were married in Hilton Head, SC in October 2017. Where do I begin with saying how amazing Karina was from start to finish in the wedding process? Her knowledge and expertise in wedding planning is exceptional! The planning process couldn’t have been easier and she brought our vision of our big day to life. She was easy to contact and kept us on track with planning. The day of the wedding I was so relaxed because I knew everything was in good hands with Karina. She was the perfect balance of accessible but not intrusive! I have no doubt that anyone that works with her would also be extremely pleased with her services!

Karina is the absolute BEST. My husband, Ryan, and I can say nothing but good things about Karina. We had our wedding at Red Gate Farms in Savannah, Ga which paired us with her. From the time we met, she was very informative and looked out for our best interest. I didn’t know much about weddings or what I wanted so she guided me through the entire process and made sure our day was perfect. She kept a timeline of wedding day that was filled out over time. We would talk about once a month and a fill more details in as we went a long. Each conversation, she would give me more details to think about for the next time we talked. She communicated with all of my vendors to take some stress off my plate. Just when we thought she couldn’t get any better, our wedding day came! she brought her husband and they were a great team! They were decorating tables and setting everything up. She made sure Ryan and I were where we needed to be when we needed to be there. We didn’t have to worry about anything. They brought us water during pictures to make sure no one got dehydrated and really any thing else we needed. Our day was absolutely perfect thanks to her. ❤️
