Nice to meet you!

As your wedding planner, I consider you to be my number one priority—not anyone else or your other vendors.  I promise to be transparent with you throughout the process. Ensuring that you are taken care of and that your needs and expectations are met is something that I take very seriously, and I pride myself in working with my clients to make sure that both the wedding planning process and the wedding day are memorable experiences.

My Story

MASTERPLANNER2-220401-115411 (1).webp

I am Chalonda McDonald the owner and lead coordinator for Planning Forever LLC. I am a Master Certified Wedding Planner through The Bridal Society. I have always had a passion for planning and organizing events.  I started this company because I want to help others create their vision for the perfect day.  I love to help make each event unique!


 I graduated from Young Harris College with a degree in Business and Public Policy and began working in the Insurance industry. I have always had an interest for event planning but this gave me the opportunity to learn about the logistics of owning a business.  After 5 years in insurance, I decided to take a leap of faith and turn my love for planning into a career.

Among many other things, I love champagne, gliter, Grey's Anatomy, spending time with family, Sweet tea and being inspired by the people I surround myself with. I am blessed with a loving husband, and the sweetest dogs, Ryleigh & Stella! I am truly grateful that you stopped by Planning Forever, and I look forward to helping you plan your big day!
