5 Amazing Chattanooga Wedding Planners

As a photographer, I have had the privilege of working with some of the best Chattanooga wedding planners. I have seen dozens of event planners ”in action” over the years. Although each of them has their own unique gifts and offerings, these 5 are some of the best! They are listed in no particular order.

Give Co. Events

The Give Co. Events wedding team was started by Jade Goss and is based near Chattanooga. This wedding planning team has grown to include numerous amazing individuals who are dedicated to the perfect wedding curation. They are experts at elevating the entire wedding experience, which is a goal that resonates strongly with us at Alyssa Michelle Photography. Additionally, they are fantastic designers and offer florals, signage, and more. It has been such a privilege to watch them serve couples. I also had the honor of working with them for my personal wedding, and they managed to keep me calm and handle everything with ease.

Carmen Taylor Weddings

Desiree is the lead wedding planner of Carmen Taylor Weddings, which was named after her children. She is super organized and on top of everything that happens on the day of the wedding. Not to mention, she can really bust a move on the dance floor! Desiree will take your Pinterest wedding board and turn it into a reality. You can work with her anywhere from one year prior to your wedding up to one month before the big day! The Huttos said, “She has such a calming presence about her which is so needed during wedding planning.” I could not agree with this statement more. You can relax knowing that Desiree will handle anything that comes up- I have witnessed her pull off the impossible first hand during a wedding. She is a fantastic wedding planner in Chattanooga.

Receptions by Design

If you are looking for a wedding pro that will always lead you in the right direction, Receptions by Design is the perfect choice. Donna and her husband, James, are experts in design and coordination. Their floral work is beautiful, and they can design an entire room from top to bottom. Not to mention, they are so fantastic to talk to. You will easily find dozens of 5-star reviews about their talent, responsiveness, and warmth. I love working with Receptions by Design!

Tennessee Valley Event Planning

I got to work with Jessi from Tennessee Valley Event Planning for a super cool and unique wedding. She managed to pull off a flawless day despite rainy weather. In fact, she seemed to make the rain add to the wedding day! Jessi and her team can help you create your dream wedding on your budget without sacrificing what is important to you. Additionally, you can have them do set up/clean for you, which I highly recommend! They will get stuff done but keep a smiling face while doing it!

Loga Weddings

Loga Weddings is a full-service wedding planning company owned by a husband and wife team. They offer anything from day-of-coordination to full planning. Additionally, they provide floral styling and rentals, which makes the wedding planning process easier! They also have a background in bartending weddings, so they offer this service as well. They are organized and will make your day stress-free.


In conclusion, many wedding planners in Chattanooga are overall fantastic. However, these 5 have proven to me that their dedication and talents will make your big day amazing.  If you are looking for day-of coordinators, partial planners, or full wedding planning with floral design!
