Wedding Planning Services


Exquisite Events and Consulting Specializes in Day of Wedding Coordinator, Micro Weddings, and Wedding Planning services from Asheville, North Carolina to Charlotte, North Carolina. We have years of experience planning the details from the room the bride puts on her gown to the party favors at the reception. The relationships we have with venues, DJs, florists, bakeries, caterers, and more have made us the premier wedding planning service for the busy bride. 

Listen to our podcast, Busy Bride 101:Wedding Planning Tips For The Bride On The Go hosted by Lisa G. McMillan!


 We work with you 1 month prior to your wedding to review your vendor contracts, create a timeline, discuss special instructions, coordinate the rehearsal with your wedding party, and onsite the BIG DAY to manage all of the details.



From start to finish we offer solutions to carefully walk you through every step of the wedding planning process. We assist you with creating a budget, providing recommendations, negotiating contracts, scheduling appointments, coordinating the rehearsal, and much more. Our experienced staff reviews the details with vendors and provides them with a timeline to ensure a stress free event. On the BIG DAY we are onsite to make your wedding dreams come true.


 A Micro Wedding is a private celebration between a couple shared with a limited number of beloved family and closest friends held in an intimate setting. This package is perfect when you're looking to scale back on the number of guests and still have the wedding of your dreams. For the DIY bride, we have you covered and we'll set out your decorations for you! One of our talented team members will consult with you one month prior to your wedding to wrap up loose ends and verify your details with your vendors. No need to stress, every element is reviewed with care, expertise, and professionalism.

Gosh, there are just not enough words to express how helpful, kind, organized and on top of things Lisa is! I cannot recommend her enough. She was always available if I needed to talk through things and brought things to my attention I wouldn't have known to think about on my own. She will take so much stress off of your plate and make sure your special day goes perfectly! Thank you Lisa!!!!

Ms. McMillan helped to coordinate what many have said is the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended. She was professional, attentive, thoughtful, considerate, flexible and a great value. I recommend her as your next day of wedding coordinator.

Booking Lisa as my planner was by far the best decision I ever made for my wedding! I first met her when she planned a close friend's wedding and she did such a beautiful job that I knew I had to work with her. Lisa was SO amazing--she paid attention to every detail, handled every bump in the road effortlessly, and made a long engagement during COVID a fun and exciting process. Everyone raved about how amazing she was, and we feel so lucky to have worked with her. She is a wedding fairy godmother!

Lisa is excellent at her job!! She carried out the wedding arrangements with creativity and professionalism. She was a ball of energy. Not only did she anticipate her clients needs but even had suggestions when things seemed lost. She is a caring and compassionate professional. I recommend her to any prospective couple looking for an experienced wedding planner. Great job LISA!!!

Lisa led us through the planning for a wedding during COVID. She gave us excellent early advice to postpone the large reception, stayed in constant contact with us, helped us with decision making and communications. She was the perfect liaison with vendors, etc. 

Her positive, calming attitude, knowledge of the industry, and good suggestions made our planning a lot less stressful. Delightful person!—I would recommend Lisa without reservation!! 

Jamie H.

If you want a stress-free wedding day and months leading up to the day, Lisa is who you need. Lisa was on top of things from the very beginning and made sure we were relaxed and had the wedding of our dreams. I even got compliments from my bridal party about how she put them at ease about what they where they were supposed to be and anything that could have gone wrong she fixed before it even happened. My biggest compliment would be that she took my ideas (cake, tables, seating chat, cookie table, etc) and made them a reality. Honestly, I don't know where I would have been without her.

About Lisa G. McMillan of Exquisite Events and Consulting

I'm Lisa G. McMillan, Founder and CEO of Exquisite Events and Consulting in North Carolina. Juggling multiple responsibilities is not foreign to me. While being a business owner and adding podcaster to my moniker are fulfilling accomplishments on my list of priorities, my family is my heartbeat. It includes my beloved husband and oh so cool canine, Wringo.  Just like you, managing work life balance is part of my daily routine and there’s bliss and opportunities at every turn.

To keep mentally sharp, self-care is key with a side of Sudoku! Playing tennis is hands down my favorite stress reliever and eliminating tasks from my checklists are an adrenaline rush. I know, right? From Mozart to Motown and everything in between you’ll find it on my playlist. There are no limits to my preferred genre of music or wedding themes.

Planning weddings is my love language, and it gives me the greatest joy to meet couples like you who seek an experienced professional to provide guidance and calm on their big day. CONTACT

Work with an award winning planner!
