The reason we hired a same-day wedding plan is I knew I wanted to be the mother of the bride on the day of the wedding and not have a care in the world. You provided that for me. You were constantly running around making sure everything was running like a well-oiled machine. I can't thank you enough but I do want to convey my gratefulness for you. We are all so grateful for your experience, your take-charge attitude, your work ethic, and your kindness. You made our daughter's wedding a perfect day for us! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

After first speaking to Meg Stepanek on the phone, I knew I had stumbled across not just a talented wedding coordinator, but someone we would also enjoy working closely with. Upon meeting Meg for the first time, Nick and I were instantly impressed with her professionalism and experience, especially with our venue and selected vendors. She was very helpful with answering our questions, handling the venue set-up & tear-down, coordinating with our vendors’ day-of, making sure the ceremony and reception was orchestrated beautifully, and tackling a curve ball thrown her way hours before the event with great success. Nick and I are truly grateful to have had Meg as our wedding coordinator to guide us through both our rehearsal and our special day and to make sure everything went as planned. Most importantly, having Meg handle all the day-of coordination meant Nick and I could finally relax and simply enjoy every moment of what to us was truly a magical wedding.

Can I give her a 10?!!

After a friend backed out of our wedding planning at a late date Meg stepped in a took the reins. I don’t know what I would have done without her! We were planning our wedding from a distance. While we were familiar with the area we couldn’t meet with the vendors to fine tune the details. Meg was on top of everything! She took us through all the details to figure out everything we wanted. She even took the time to talk to my mom and mother-in-law, and listen to their wishes when I couldn’t anymore. She really understood what I wanted and conveyed it, and sometimes fought for it with all the vendors (and relatives) we used. Weekend of of the event, she was amazing! I was so relaxed (or as relaxed as one can be on their wedding lol!) knowing that she had absolutely every detail anyone could ever imagine under control and scheduled down the to minute. Meg is experiences, prompt, detail oriented, organized, motivated, flexible, kind, understanding the list goes on and on. You would be foolish not the use her for you wedding or any big event.

From our very first meeting with Meg Stepanek, I knew that we had found the perfect wedding planner! Her personality is the perfect combination of friendly enthusiasm and business-like organization. She shared in our excitement from the beginning and made the planning process a fun experience. She was very professional and extremely prompt in responding to all forms of correspondence, texts, phone calls, and emails. Many times I made requests of her that I thought went “above and beyond the call of duty,” and both during the planning process and on the day of the wedding, there was nothing she wouldn’t do for us to make our day a perfect success! Our daughter’s wedding was spectacular, but most of all, it was a day we could truly enjoy. It gave us such confidence knowing that Meg had all of the details carefully planned and under control. (Even when one of the groomsmen accidentally locked his jacket in a church closet five minutes before the ceremony was to begin, Meg was there to take control, and the ceremony started on time!) When we look back, my husband and I both consider the money that we spent to hire Meg, the best money we spent on the wedding. Being able to truly enjoy one of the most important days in our lives is priceless! Meg was wonderful to work with every step of the way! Kathy Gustafson (Mother of the Bride)

Meg saved our sanity and helped us execute what our friends and families called the most magical wedding they've ever been to! Planning a destination wedding in 6 months with 130 people is a bit of a challenge but Meg made it all go smoothly. She had wonderful suggestions for vendors we hadn't chosen yet, and was more than willing to help with ANYTHING! She even came back and took our bags to our wedding suite (despite the fact it was 12:30a.m.!) Don't know how we could have done it without her.

One of the best things we did for my daughter’s wedding in mid-Vail on 06/14/2014 was to hire Meg to be our day of coordinator!! She is absolutely wonderful in every way and from the beginning we trusted we were in good hands with her at the helm. You know as soon as you talk to her that she knows everything about weddings, will do everything she can for you, and that the wedding day will be exactly as you have envisioned it. She is super organized, runs a tight ship but does so in a relaxed and fun way. It was obvious all the other vendors enjoyed working with her and they all worked together to make the day so special! She took the initiative to contact all the vendors and made complex arrangements to get our guitarist up the mountain. She also went up to the ceremony site with us a few days before the wedding to review all the plans. She is a very good listener which was very much appreciated!

I have to say that Meg was a treasure and completely eliminated the anxiety we’d had about all that needed to be done up on the mountain on the day of the wedding while we were in the valley getting ready. Because of her obvious competence, we literally didn’t give it another thought until we got off the gondola to find everything exactly as hoped for. She also took on the task of coordinating the ceremony, which could have been a comedy of errors without her help but was instead beautiful and moving.

Meg obviously takes joy in her work, gives you her undivided attention, and has the attitude that whatever happens is as important to her as it is to the bride and groom. She was truly a gift on this very important day and comes highly recommended!!

I worked mostly with Meg's associate AK leading up to the wedding, though Meg was also there on the wedding day. We had a day of only wedding coordination package, which was really more like full week of. This was a destination wedding for us and my hubby and I are both pretty type A - we had pretty big expectations and a very particular vision for every aspect of this wedding, so I don't think we were the most laid back clients ever ; ) On the day of the wedding I was completely relaxed and happy knowing that AK had handled and would handle every detail, I wasn't second guessing or worrying about a single thing, which is out of character for me ; ) Everything flowed smoothly, looked perfect, and was a pleasure for guests and for us. I am SO glad we hired them, my husband really didn't think it was necessary to have someone day of and I didn't even realize exactly how much would be involved for them - they did so many things that day that I didn't even think of in advance or realize someone would need to do, and I said about 500 times 'thank god for AK and Meg'. Hiring them was seriously the best decision of our wedding planning process I think! I highly recommend them both

Meg Stepanek and her team at Gemini Event Planning run a first rate operation. Meg took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for in our wedding events, and then began to make recommendations- locations, themes, vendors, details, and partners who were nothing less than extraordinary. Her selection of vendors was exquisite, and each vendor and partner we chose had nothing but the utmost respect and perfect working relationship with Meg. Where Meg Stepanek really shines is in the execution of a perfect wedding- and she does it and makes it seem easy and fun (for her and you).

Spending twelve months working and planning with Meg was truly a pleasure and a joy. I will recommend Meg to anyone who is seeking a professional wedding planner, or anyone who is having a wedding or event! She is calm, resourceful, professional, detailed, and most importantly-- fun!
