“I love couples who are in love. I love taking their interests, passions and loves and turning them into meaningful details. I live for the moment where all the dreaming, decision making and execution come together to pull off the most perfect night for not only my couple, but also their family & guests.”
– Charyl H. Williams
​owner of Social Butterfly Events

Our Approach

OUR APPROACH

At Social Butterfly Events we take a personal approach to event planning. When we take on a client it is about getting to know you as a couple as well as individuals.
We want to know what you like to do as a couple as well as when you are alone. How did you meet and who fell in love first?
How do you spend your Sundays?
What foods can you not live without and what genre of music puts a smile on your face. It is essential to us that we get to know you so that your wedding day can be a reflection of the two of you.
From these moments, your wedding is created.Throw out the idea of what is "Normal" and make the most important day about the most important people...
Your wedding should display a blend of your styles that will WoW your guests and show why you have chosen one another. We look forward to hearing your story and helping you weave those ideas, plans, and dreams into the Best Day EVER!

This package is for the bride who has never stopped thinking about this day. She has booked the vendors and planned the wedding but needs someone to manage the details. This package will allow her to enjoy the day in her most important role, that of which being the bride. This service will begin 2 months prior to the wedding date.

Many modern couples are professionals with challenging careers, This fact makes taking on planning a wedding daunting to say the least.  Couples can have so many ideas and visions they foresee for their special day and we can help take those ideas and bring them to life.  We work lockstep with the couple to tackle the wedding planning checklist so that they can still feel apart of the planning without being overwhelmed by it.

Full Service Planning     Event Design starts at 4000.00

This package is for the client who wants an event planner to guide them through the entire wedding planning process.  This will allow our couple's and their families to enjoy this engagement while we do all the lion-share of the planning. We will start with budget development and then will work at hand selecting your elite team of vendors to help showcase the couple's design aesthetic. Bringing all of these details together will provide unforgettable memories for the couple as well as their guests, with the added benefit of minimal wedding related stress.

A Team Effort

OUR APPROACH

I have always enjoyed planning events and parties. After an internship
with a wedding planning company I knew this was my career path.
Social Butterfly Events came about not only from my love of the craft
but also my desire to have a small role in telling people’s love story.
Fun Facts: Things I love in this world include my husband and son,
boxer puppies and The Pittsburgh Steelers! Even with my fear of
heights that I share with the rest of my family we still spent the night in
treehouses last year! Do not worry though you will never see me on a
ladder, I save that honor for my staff!

Frequently Asked Questions


Q & A


SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU WANT TO ENJOY THIS SEASON OF YOUR LIFE.  A WEDDING PLANNING COMPANY ALLOWS YOU TO ENJOY BEING ENGAGED WHILE KNOWING THAT THE WEDDING YOU ENVISION FOR YOURSELF & YOUR PARTNER IS BEING PLANNED. 

WE CAN WALK YOU THROUGH THE STEPS OF PLANNING THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME MOMENT.  YOUR VISION FOR THE DAY IS ALWAYS IN THE FOREFRONT OF OUR MIND.  WHEN WE OFFER RECOMMENDATIONS FOR VENUES, VENDORS, & ALL THE LITTLE DETAILS THAT MAY A DAY UNIQUE TO EACH COUPLE. 

EXPERIENCE, PROFESSIONAL, CREATIVE BUT MOST IMPORTANT CHARYL IS FUN!  SHE HAS THE ABILITY TO MAKE WHAT CAN EASILY FEEL LIKE A DAUNTING OVERWHELMING TASK FUN AND ENJOYABLE.  YOU WILL HAVE MEMORIES OF NOT ONLY YOUR WEDDING BUT THE MONTHS LEADING UP TO IT TO LOOK BACK ON AND THINK OF FONDLY.

I HAVE A DESIGNATED OFFICE IN MY HOME BUT I AM HARDLY THERE SINCE I AM CONSTANTLY MEETING CLIENTS WITH VENDORS OR AT VENUES & THAT IS GOING TO BE WHERE I AM GOING TO MEET YOU.  

IN BETWEEN THOSE MEETINGS WE WILL SNEAK INTO A COFFEE SHOP TO GRAB A GREEN TEA OR MAKE FINAL DECISIONS OVER MARGARITAS! EITHER CAN BE ARRANGED!!


AS MANY AS YOU WOULD LIKE (WITHIN REASON)!  HAHA IT IS MY JOB TO KNOW MY CLIENTS AND TO DO THAT WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WHETHER THAT IS IN PERSON OR OVER THE PHONE.  I SAVE TEXTING FOR QUICK NOTES LIKE "HEY I AM RUNNING 10 MINUTES LATE" BUT THE IMPORTANT DETAILS SHOULD BE TALKED ABOUT IN PERSON OR OVER EMAIL. 


ALL OF THE TIME! IN FACT 80% OF MY CLIENTS DO NOT LIVE IN THE AREA.  WE HAVE WORKED WITH CLIENTS FROM ALL OVER THE STATE AND AS FAR AS LONDON! YES THIS MEANS WE WILL NEED TO BE CONSCIOUS ABOUT TIME ZONES WHEN IT COMES TO COMMUNICATION BUT IT IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE.  IT ALSO MEANS THAT IF AND WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO COME INTO TOWN, WE WILL MAKE THE MOST OF THE TIME YOU ARE HERE!


WE DO NOT HAVE A SET VENDOR LIST.  EACH WEDDING ALLOWS US TO MATCH VENDORS WITH CLIENTS THAT MEET THEIR BUDGET, THEIR DESIGN & THEIR PERSONALITY.  BY RECOMMENDING A VENDOR WE ARE STANDING BEHIND THEIR WORK & THEREFORE WE DO NOT MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS TO RECEIVE ANY COMPENSATION FROM THE VENDOR.

Social Butterfly was the best possible experience we could have had for our wedding.  We were living in Boston at the time, so the prospect of planning the wedding remotely to be held in Wilmington was daunting. She helped us set up meetings with all of our vendors (food tastings, choosing tablecloths, the whole shebang), and coordinated when we need to book which services, deadlines, etc. Without her help, my husband and I would have been totally lost.
