TOMI DINKINS

Wedding Planner

I’ve always been the ‘problem-solver’, the ‘rational thinker’, the ‘life-long learner’, and constantly the leader in positive action becoming positive change around me.  Experience has blessed me with the ability to morph organization into an art form and big dreams into reality, this is how I live life. Thoughts are like puzzles that become beautiful moments and cherished memories when the pieces fit together perfectly.  My favorite question is ‘why’ and my favorite answer is ‘love’ and the passion that always accompanies it; for me, that is where I thrive. I love taking something intangible and turning it into real life; all of the thoughts, past memories, goals, hopes, adjustments and compromises of my couples being brought together to begin this new chapter together in life.  It’s that exact moment I see in both of them when they walk into their event to see their dreams have seamlessly come to life right before their eyes… This is why I do it.

AMY WARNER

Wedding Planner, Folly Beach Focused

As a right-hand woman to my mother for almost fifteen years, I have seen the splendor and emotion that a truly beautiful wedding can create. Each wedding is a unique opportunity to create something that will be remembered for years to come. After graduating from college, I relocated to Charleston and fell in love with the charm and ambiance of a city so full of rich history and joy. When working on a wedding I value prioritizing details so you can enjoy your perfect day to the fullest.

Every day I am inspired to capture fleeting moments of joy and turn them into eternal memories. I believe that love changes you, whether that be loving a partner or finally being confident in your own skin. Everyone deserves the chance to have love captured on camera, and I believe that experience should be authentic and personal. When I relocated to this beautiful city that I now call home, I knew that it was the start of something new. It feels so right to be here with you, now! Charleston, let’s make some memories.

CAM BUSKIRK

DJ

As a South Carolinian locally born and raised, I have grown up around music my entire life. I am now going on my eleventh year as a French Horn player and am currently studying at Charleston Southern University pursuing Music Education. When I am not playing one of the many instruments I know, I’m found using my musical talents on the DJ decks. I have been on the DJ decks for 7 years and am never looking back. In addition to Pinnacle, I make up one half of a highly successful DJ duo in Charleston, who has performed at numerous shows and festivals for as many as thousands of people. Whether it be through my classical music on the recital hall stage, electronic beats in a packed club, or playing the night away at a wedding, it is my goal to have the entire crowd dancing and making memories all night long!

MIKEY LEE

DJ

Originally from England, I’ve enjoyed making it a full time career performing and entertaining for almost 18 years. At 35 years old, I am beyond proud to be a multi award winning international DJ & vocalist with an all round talent for live music. Early in my career I decided to switch things up, landing my dream role as a professional DJ for some of the biggest known cruise companies across the U.S. After meeting the love of my life and now fiancé, I was delighted to have the opportunity to move to Katelin’s hometown where I now sing and DJ at clubs, bars, weddings and events all over the beautiful city of Charleston, SC. When it comes to being a DJ, I believe no event is too small and no crowd is too big! The outcome will always be the same… a night to tell friends about and leaving your guests wanting more from the fun-filled dance floor memories to look back on for years to come!

Linda Warner was our wedding planner and I’m so glad she was! We chose the middle package. Linda went above and beyond to make our day extra special. No detail was overlooked. It was a beautiful day. She provided wonderful insight, suggestions, and opinions. We were definitely a team in planning my wedding. It would not have been the same without her. She was worth every penny. Thanks Linda!

Review from The Knot

I used pinnacle planning for my recent wedding and hands down the best choice I ever made. Tomi and Linda were absolutely amazing! Didn’t realize all the goes into planning a wedding until they came along. We were so organized and scheduled we were ahead of the game! They were both so professional and were able to take a small little vision and turn it into something magical. Easy to work with and truly cared about us! Would use them again and again!

Review from The Knot

Linda was absolutely amazing! Personable, sweet spirited, engaging, and very much hands on without being “obvious”. She orchestrated the “coordinator “ role at its finest and I enjoyed her presence immensely! She was absolutely what my daughter needed to enjoy her wedding day at its finest! Grateful mom!!!!
