Of the five wedding planners Vogue featured this month as the best in the country, two are based in Charleston.
Lynn Easton, who runs her wedding planning business from the top floor of Charleston's Zero George Hotel, and Tara Guérard, who planned the Boone Hall ceremony for celebrities Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, were both featured in Vogue's recent article, "5 star wedding planners you need to know about."
The fashion mag gave a nod to Easton Events, based in Charleston and Charlottesville, Va., for its "polished southern charm."
Tara Guérard Soirée, the planning business split between offices in Charleston and New York, was noted for her graphic design and stationary services woven throughout her events.
The wedding planners are featured in the magazine's online compilation, "The Wedding Guide 2014" on Vogue.com.
"I am honored to be included in Vogue's Wedding Guide alongside such an inspirational peer group," Easton said. "All wedding planners are truly privileged that our business is the business of happiness."
The top honor from Vogue is hardly either planners' first brush with national praise.
Two upscale hospitality businesses Easton launched with husband Dean Andrews have been recognized by high-profile publications.
Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyard was named one of the most romantic venues by Brides magazine last year, and Zero George Hotel was listed among the top "new food hotels" in the world in Conde Nast's Hot List last month.
