John Gandy and his events team was an INVALUABLE resource for making my niece’s wedding a TREMENDOUS success! From all the preplanning and collaborating with vendors, to the rehearsal dinner and wedding day, they worked tirelessly to ensure every detail was covered. We can't imagine what we would have done without their creativity, flexibility and professionalism. We are so grateful he was available and took us on as a client.

On the day of the wedding itself, there was no drama or stress for the family, we simply got to be in the moment and enjoy the day, PRICELESS. The events team had everything under control, they come armed with a full itinerary, everything is so well ORGANIZED. After all the beautiful comments about the bride and groom, everyone seemed to be talking about the incredible décor and all the special touches throughout the space. And that was no easy feat, as the venue only allowed for a small window of time for load-in and set-up. No other wedding planning team would have taken on that challenge, but it didn’t even intimidate John Gandy. They are simply AMAZING and exceeded all our expectations.

If you are looking to make your wedding memorable and BREATHTAKING, settle for nothing less than John Gandy Events.

I cannot express how grateful I am that John Gandy and his team were part of my wedding day. The day was perfect---every detail was in place, and he thought of everything. All of my guests commented on the details of the wedding, and how that made it so special and personal. That was all because of John Gandy. They also made sure that we kept to our desired timeline, and checked in with my husband and I throughout the night to see if we needed anything. What made it the most special for me, was that my mom and dad could enjoy the day with me, and didn't worry about a thing. Words can't convey how I appreciate John Gandy and all that he has done--he has made the most important day of my life the most beautiful one as well. All my love and thanks to him and his team! Love, Mrs. Ramirez ;)

Working with John and his team made planning my daughter's wedding an absolute joy. He took confusion out of confusing - added special touches - gave fabulous suggestions - all while keeping it personal and meaningful.

We planned an outdoor ceremony and the day of the wedding it rained. Fortunately, we had a back up plan. However, that didn't stop my daughter from having a melt down RIGHT when we reached the venue. John was at the door to greet us and he absolutely took control. He gave my daughter the perfect reassurances that she needed and put us right back on track for one of the most spectacular days of my life!

I can describe my daughters wedding (thanks to John Gandy and his team) in one word. PERFECT!

Our daughter was recently married and we hired John Gandy and his Team to assist in planning the big event. John and his Team provided exceptional service and went well beyond the contract requirements to ensure our daughter had a unique experience. The planning services were key, but the support the day of the ceremony, access to proven vendors, ensuring everyone completed their part of the preparation timely and ensuring everyone was where they needed to be was priceless. Mr. Gandy and his staff are a very professional group providing outstanding wedding planning and ancillary services.

Where to begin with John Gandy and his staff. They were absolutely amazing to work with!!! My mom and I decided to hire John Gandy Events after we had already found the venue and caterer, we decided that pulling everything together would be hard to do and we needed a professional. My wedding exceeded anything and everything I had dreamed of!!!!!!! John and his team were simply amazing with everything they did even down to the last detail! I had guests coming up to my throughout the wedding saying how beautiful and amazing everything was! I even had a friend who recently got married a couple months ago say they wish they could've hired John Gandy and his team. Any question I had no matter what time it was during the day was answered in a timely matter. I was even surprised to get a response from his team when they were out of town doing another wedding. I found a hair and makeup artist on my own and ran the name by John and his staff, John was very honest in his response and recommended me to another hair artist and makeup artist and I am very thankful for his recommendation. Janice worked wonders keeping myself and my bridal party calm during the day of (they even steamed the bridesmaids dresses and my dress prior to us arriving). McKinley worked wonders with keeping the groom and his groomsmen in line and making sure they were on time as well. What truly amazed me was our DJ cancelled 1 week to the wedding (every brides nightmare let me tell you) I frantically emailed John and told him the situation he replied with "don't worry everything is under control" 2 hours later that same day John had me in contact with a DJ who turned out to be amazing!!!!! I would recommend John and his staff for any event big or small! They are truly amazing and I couldn't be any more happier with how the wedding turned out.

I would not have made it through my wedding day without John Gandy and his staff! He designed the most beautiful wedding we could have asked for. Most importantly they supported me throughout the whole day. Got me whatever I needed and kept me smiling when time were very stressful. They are the best of the best! I now consider them family! Hire them if you want the best wedding ever.

From the beginning, John said "No Worries!" with regard to the setup at the reception and that proved to be 100% true! John Gandy and his team transformed the Woman's Club to the lovely, elegant atmosphere that Arden had envisioned. Everyone on his team worked so hard from the set up, to being there with us throughout the day - every little detail thought out ahead of time. He listens, gives advice and provides the staff to make the day go flawlessly!

John Gandy and his team are extremely talented and wonderful to work with! They really have an eye for design and decor. I gave them basic info for what I pictured and they turned it into a fairy tale!! They make it so easy. They have a huge warehouse where you can tour and pick out chairs, tables, decorations, candles, chandeliers, pillows, linens and napkins, plates, you name it they've got it!!! He also partners with Designs by Darin, a floral company, that is phenomenal!!!! My flowers were beautiful. It's a one stop shop for EVERYTHING you need. Not only will they decorate everything, they will also help you plan with vendors several months prior. Your wedding day is so stressful as it is, and they really take care of everything and you literally have no idea. It's worth every single penny, I had the most carefree wedding day and was able to enjoy myself and not worry about anything!! My photographer and other vendors said my wedding was the most beautiful, well done wedding they've ever seen. Another big plus is John and his team have a ton of connections for photographers, videographers, paper companies for invitations and signage, hair and makeup artists, cakes, etc. You can trust them to refer the best vendors. They will work their butts off for you!!! I highly recommend John Gandy Events and Designs by Darin!!!!!

John Gandy and his team were hands down 100% worth spending the money for. They facilitated everything from the beginning of the wedding planning process to the very end. They truly made my wedding day the best day of my life and I would not change ONE thing about it...coming from the bride, it is a big deal when we say we would not change one thing!! Our day was a complete FAIRY TALE, and it was by far the best day of our lives. My fiance and I sat down with John at the very beginning of the planning and explained to him what we were dreaming of on our big day and by the end, he made it into a reality. He was extremely prompt with his responses and was always there when I needed him. He kept everything organized, and was the communication between us and the vendors. 2 weeks before the wedding, we had a timeline of EVERY LITTLE DETAIL down to the minute of how things would flow on the day of. Sure enough, everything and everyone followed the timeline perfectly!! John Gandy is a true ARTIST!! John and his team designed the entire look of the wedding from the ideas that I had said that I wanted. They brought in every single bit of decor and made it perfect. The beauty of your wedding will be in the details and John and his team will truly exceed your expectations!! Our guests cannot stop talking about how absolutely gorgeous our wedding was. This wedding will go down in the history books! :) Choosing John Gandy and his team was the best decision I made in the wedding planning process. He is worth every single penny. Thank you John and the team for facilitating a DREAM COME TRUE WEDDING!!!!

John Gandy and his team were true professionals...this was evident to everyone who observed how they worked tirelessly from morning till night for my daughter's wedding. The furniture, accessories and props they brought in were amazing! John has the best warehouse of choices you could ever imagine. Being from out of town, and even IN town, I can't imagine how anyone functions WITHOUT a Wedding Planner, for a wedding you will actually enjoy. Whether you care to be more hands on (and help participate in fun props) like we were, OR if you would rather just sit back and let someone else do everything, he is your guy. He knows all the best vendors to work with, and each one is a professional who is tried and true. Plus, his decorating knowledge for turning the venue of your choice into something breathtaking is far superior to anything else we have seen. His take charge attitude lets the Bride, Groom and their families just relax and actually enjoy the day without any worries. Plus, John Gandy and his team are just genuinely wonderful and nice people! So do yourselves a favor, and take it from someone who has always "done it themselves" LOL HIring John Gandy and his team was probably THE most important decision we made. He allowed all of us to just relax and thoroughly enjoy every minute of our special family time together, and for that, we will always be grateful. What a beautiful memory!! Thank you, John!

John and his team made my wedding planning process a walk in the park and my wedding day even better than I had ever imagined possible. I called him the day we were engaged and from the very first minute to our final sendoff he and his team were flawless. The venue we used had never been open to the public before, and one of the reasons we were able to secure it was due to John's impeccable reputation. Everything from the kitchen to the seating to the lighting was arranged by John and his excellent vendors. I decided early on due to my professional obligations to leave the "nitty gritty" details to John and a few trusted family members. They never steered us wrong. I felt comfortable to call or text him with questions, concerns, or ideas, and would get a response within hours, every time. I nearly cried when I saw all the details in place at the actual wedding. The "soft seating" pieces he brought from his warehouse, the lighting, the signage, the table cloths, everything, were absolutely perfect. My wedding truly looked like it belonged in a magazine. I couldn't imagine it being any better.

Even more important than the event design (to me) was how professional the entire JGE team was. Starting rehearsal day, they were on time, with a smile and absolutely cool under pressure. We had a lot of "wedding veterans" in our wedding party, and even they were impressed with the level of service provided. John's team was on hand on wedding day to do literally ANYTHING we could think of. Not a detail went overlooked. They stayed all night with us to make sure every need we had was catered to at a moment's notice. Every question I asked received and "absolutely, right away" and they were so incredibly professional the entire evening. I truly believe there is nothing the JGE team can't accomplish, you just have to dream it up and they'll make it happen. If you want a wedding or an event to be perfect, just call them. It will be all you imagined and more.

John Gandy far exceeded all of my expectations. My wedding was at Honey Lake Plantation, an already beautiful venue, but John and his team turned it into my real life fairytale. From the lighting to the furniture they brought in, everything was beautiful down to the very last detail. They are very organized, and they paid attention to what I wanted. The centerpieces, bouquets, and wreaths made by Designs by Darin were fabulous, when I saw my bouquet I almost cried. They are extremely professional, they helped calm my nerves, and were willing to do absolutely anything to make my day beautiful and perfect. John Gandy has a gift when it comes to event planning, and I would recommend him and his team to every single bride.

When Corey and I first got engaged I thought I could plan my own wedding, needless to say I was way wrong. A relative of ours that is in the wedding business recommendd John Gandy Events, my sister and I went to his warehouse/office to meet and talk design. The warehouse is full of anything and everything you could ever want and more. I talked about my ideas with John and shortly after he sent me the proposal for JGE to design our wedding. I was a little worried due to our budget but John assured me that we could do everything I wanted within my budget. When we met at the venue, John, his wonderful team and Darin from Designs by Darin gave me all their ideas, asked mine (theirs were way better)and they also gave us a HUGE gift that I can't thank them enough for. Over the 6 months or so that we had until the wedding I sent so many emails, mostly ignorant stupid things, John replied quickly and helpfully without making me feel dumb. The day before the wedding the JGE team were at the venue setting things up, rehearsal was quick and to the point. The day of the wedding was beyond anything I could have ever hoped. My girls and I had Janice and Taylor at our side the entire day,, they steamed my dress, took care of few thing that I probably should have had done earlier, anything that I needed even if it was a drink they were there to do it, while John and Troy set everything up. The JGE team told us where to be and what to do so there was never any confusion. The ceremony and reception site were beyond anything I could have ever wanted. They took my ideas and made them soo much better. All of our guest complimented on how beautiful everything was. My wedding was perfect, John Gandy and his team are amazing and should design you next event!

When Corey and I first got engaged I thought I could plan my own wedding, needless to say I was way wrong. A relative of ours that is in the wedding business recommendd John Gandy Events, my sister and I went to his warehouse/office to meet and talk design. The warehouse is full of anything and everything you could ever want and more. I talked about my ideas with John and shortly after he sent me the proposal for JGE to design our wedding. I was a little worried due to our budget but John assured me that we could do everything I wanted within my budget.

John Gandy Events made our wedding day absolutely flawless and more beautiful than I could ever have imagined! This staff is professional, accommodating, thoughtful and most importantly patient!! I would recommend hiring this team for your wedding, it was our best decision!

Before my wedding day I heard several things from other people: 1. You won't be able to eat at your own wedding - WRONG, the JGE staff plated our meal and found the perfect time for us to sit down and enjoy our dinner. 2. Something will go wrong on your wedding day - WRONG, JGE had everything exactly as we had described, what we had planned, and just perfect for us! 3. You will feel like it was a blur - WRONG, the JGE staff talked us through all of the important moments, made sure we took everything in and really enjoyed ourselves during the night!!

Trust them with the decisions and decorating, it could not have been better. Heather had a vision, explained it to John and they pulled it off perfectly. Thank you to everyone for all of your hard work.

Gandy events provided services for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding. All of the vendors were beautifully coordinated - even those Gandy was not involved in choosing. The staff is outstanding, professional and we had complete confidence that our event was in great hands - and we were never disappointed. Gandy's involvement in our rehearsal and wedding made it possible for all of us to let go of any worries and fully enjoy a joyful occasion. Cannot recommend them enough and if you hire them - let it go and have fun! Carol Hart

John Gandy and his team were absolutely wonderful! We started planning our wedding about 2 months before the date and with such little time,I was concerned about getting everything done. John was beyond helpful, and I left the details of the reception site completely in his hands. His eye for detail and his incredible vision turned an empty building into a remarkable space, from the lighting to the furniture, it was all amazing.

I cannot imagine what we would have done without John and his team. Janice and Amanda were with us the entire wedding day and everything was perfect, thanks to them.

I must say in the beginning I was the most skeptical person on earth about hiring a event planner. Im one of those guys that say "I can do that" to save a dollar. Boy was I wrong. There are no words that can describe what John Gandy and his staff did for us during this memorable time in our life. We were very pleased with him and his staff thru the whole process. Our only regret was not securing him before we picked the venue location but even though we were working with a venue that was new and had major deficiencies in there work flow, due to new ownership, John Gandy events made the best scenario out of it. If they can work with what we had to get thru then everyone else would be a piece of cake. It is well worth the price as he will save you more than he charges this I assure you. Special thanks to Janice, Troy, Sarah and Kristin. You guys rock!!!

As the bride, I can honestly say, "I really don't know how I would've had the gorgeous wedding I did withOUT John Gandy and his team!" I chose my venue before hiring John. My venue was the ONLY thing I contracted before John and a word to the wise, MAKE hiring JOHN GANDY EVENTS your first priority!!! Why? He will make the rest of your wedding journey such a smooth ride and alleviate so much stress that you can actually enjoy the things you're supposed to enjoy instead of stressing. Even though he didn't negotiate my venue contract, he still made it seamless. His team handled things with such professionalism that I couldn't have been more impressed. They do the big things but they also do the little things, that I, as the bride, will always remember them for. I recommend this team to any and all that will listen. PHENOMINAL TEAM here! Don't waste any more time trying to decide; they're worth every cent plus some!

John Gandy and his team were crucial to my wedding planning process. From the moment I was engaged, (and then I immediately called JGE) until my husband and I enjoyed our sparkler send off at the end of the night, John and his staff were there. They took care of the practical side of things and came prepared with an emergency kit, steamed and transported my dresses, knew how to bustle my gown, organized the slide show..etc... whatever we needed they were ON IT! John also has a "magical" decorative touch as he transformed the reception ballroom in to the wedding of my dreams! Every little detail was perfect, and I am NOT one to miss the details. The day was flawless thanks to John Gandy events and I will always use them for in the future ! Thank you JGE!!!!!

From start to finish, this experience was wonderful. The day we met Mr. John Gandy there was this sense of calm and confidence. This was our first experience with an event planner and a wedding. By the time our consultation was finished, We knew the vision that John and our daughter had we're one in the same. My husband and I both agreed the choice had to be No one other than Team Gandy! And I say that because this is truly a team. Janice,was like having a trusted hand from the time we arrived until late into the night. What a trooper. This will be an amazing memory for our family friends and new family. Our daughter and her new husband were being told all night what a beautiful wedding! Fabulous is the only word to describe.

It was such a relief to know I did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding as John and his staff took care of everything. My husband and I could enjoy our daughter, her new husband and our guests and focus on having a good time and lovely memories.

John Gandy is AMAZING! He made everything so easy, from the initial planning to everything running smoothly the day of the wedding. He knows all the best vendors in town. His staff is fabulous, too.

Thanks to John and his team my wedding was an absolute fairy tale!
On the wedding day everyone was so helpful, generous and professional. My ceremony was at Pebble Hill Plantation as well as my reception. Therefore, after the ceremony while my guests were on the patios for horderves, John, his team, and Darin had to transfer the barn into a reception area. By the looks of the reception you would have thought it took days to set up (only took 30 minutes). Everything was absolutely stunning!
Planning my wedding and the day of my wedding was stress-free thanks to John and his wonderful team!

John and his team were MAGNIFICENT! I moved back to Tallahassee from Pittsburgh in late December. By the time I met John at the Honey Lake Bridal Expo in February I had a few of the "big" vendors booked, but needed guidance to find vendors I was lacking and help with all of the little details of design. With the wedding only four months away and a CRAZY schedule I was beginning to get nervous about all the work to still be done. I IMMEDIATELY felt relief after speaking with John...he put me at total ease and all my worries began to disappear!

Over the next few months I had a few face to face planning sessions and was encouraged to call, txt or email with any needs/concerns. John fully understood my vision and worked closely with my vendors to bring that vision to life. The space John created was everything I wanted and even better than I had imagined it could be!!!

I also have to thank John and his team for taking great care of us and keeping things on track the day of the wedding...everything ran smoothly and was on time!

Thank you John, Janice, Troy and Sarah for being part of my special day!

I am not even sure there are words to describe the John Gandy Events team! They are amazing! I didn't want the stress of planning every detail of my Wedding so my mother and I met with John and immediately knew that we had to have him as our event coordinator. John was always extremely helpful and responded to our questions and concerns promptly. We had the best vendors in Tallahassee for our wedding because John was there to point us in the right direction the whole way.
The day of our Wedding we got ready at the venue. It was so exciting to walk into the reception area and see how the room progressed from simple to completely elegant. I absolutely could not have dreamed up a more perfect design. Not only were John and his team busy setting up a fairy tale reception, they were also extremely attentive to my wedding party, making a run to the store for anything we needed. After the wedding my Husband and I were astounded at how perfect our wedding day was... you always hear stories about something going wrong, but it is possible to have the perfect, stress free wedding... hire John Gandy Events!! You absolutely will not regret it!! Thanks John, Ms. Janice, Troy and the rest of the team. You guys helped give us memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Love, Alan and Amy Riley

Mr. Gandy has a passion for wedding planning and if you go to him with an idea of what you want he brings YOUR vision to life! I am a very detail oriented person and Mr. Gandy listened to my ideas and made sure everything I wanted I had while enhancing my vision with his professionalism. Mr. Gandy kept in touch with my vendors and made sure everyone was on the same page come wedding day. I had no worries on my wedding day and my husband and I had one of the best days of our new lives together! I think a few of our guests had the best day of their lives too.. ;-)
Thanks Mr. Gandy

As a bride, I was nervous about the whole wedding process but they made me feel very at ease about it all. John & his team were always there to answer our questions and give us support & advice. Everything was very organized & they made planning our wedding so much fun! They took our ideas & transformed them into a truly magical day. We loved that during the planning process they payed attention to the little details that were special to us, took note of things that we liked, and then incorporated them into the wedding. On our wedding day we were worry free and honestly don’t know what we would have done without John Gandy & his team. Our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more.

Master at details, empty barn magically transformed into a venue worthy of a Royal Event. Grandeur describes the atmosphere of his creation for Todd & Mycah Hunter. Crystal chandeliers suspended over mirrored tables, huge gold mercury glass candlesticks - Gandy’s own personal surprise for the bride. I later heard it was their first debut! People were awestruck to see 2 dueling grand pianos, gorgeous crystal chandelier suspended with majesty overhead & elegant personalized request cards for guests. Gandy slogan depicts a royal crown with “Keep Calm” and “Gandy On” under it. With Gandy in charge, you literally worry about nothing. People asked, “are you nervous?”, “how are you holding up?” We were very calm. Not nervous at all. Just soaking in every moment of this wonderful day!” No “bride-zilla” moments, no problems, & no mishaps. If anything did go askew, we never knew about it. I give all credit to Gandy’s team. He was THE most essential part. 1st person hired when planning started. 100% confident he was best choice we made. His influence, name recognition, & ability to work harmoniously with other vendors is priceless. Moreover, having Darin Jones of “Designs by Darin” do flowers at rehearsal dinner, church & reception proved to be another perfect choice. He helped every step of the way-guidance on etiquette, budget management, day of coordination & his amazing warehouse FULL of furniture, decorations, candles, chandeliers, all free of charge! Entire wedding from rehearsal dinner, to ceremony, to reception, was like a fairy tale event all brides dream their wedding would be. His unique ideas & flare for one-of-a-kind touches made my daughter’s wedding amazing. I know how a Queen feels when her daughter gets married to Prince Charming!! Thank you for making my little girl's dream wedding come true beyond her own expectation. Gandy & Designs by Darin were best for the job, true pleasure to work with. Highly recommend both for a flawless, stress-free event!

John Gandy Events was an absolute pleasure to work with! As a fourth year medical student living in Pensacola planning a wedding in Rosemary Beach I found myself overwhelmed and didn't know where to start. Luckily, my best friend recommended Mr. Gandy and after meeting him and touring his amazing warehouse I immediately knew I needed his help. After we established what each of our roles would be in the planning process went several months speaking... I didn't want to know about every last detail and I was confident they would pull off a beautiful event, and they did. John made two trips to our wedding venue in Rosemary beach during the planning process which is at least a two hour drive from Tallahassee. He scouted the area looking for such things as power sources and bathrooms since the wedding and reception would be outside. He sent a detailed timeline for approval a few weeks before the wedding so I had the opportunity to make any changes I wanted.
When my wedding day finally arrived, I didn't have one ounce of stress or worry. John, Janice and Troy arrived the day before hand and said to direct any last minute issues or concerns their way... which I did. They arrived to the event site early on the wedding day and executed the set-up exactly as planned. It was impeccably decorated and was truly stunning. The decor was gorgeous and the little details they added were unexpected and greatly appreciated. The guests complimented everything from our amazing cupcake display table to the croquet/lawn games for the kids. Everyone had a blast and I didn't want the day to end. Thank you John and company. You were WONDERFUL!!! xoxo

John Gandy was an essential part of our wedding. He was the first hire I made when starting the planning process and now that it's all said and done, I can say with 100% confidence that he was by far the best hire I made. His pull with other vendors is priceless. A call from him and he's able to get commitments from vendors that I know I would not have been able to obtain on my own.

He helped every step of the way from guidance on proper etiquette, when to take care of certain details, budget management, day of coordination and last but certainly not least ----- his warehouse FULL of furniture, decorations, candles, chandeliers, etc. all free of charge! His unique ideas and special touches are what made our wedding so beautiful.

With all that said, I am most grateful for the peace of mind John gave me. It is amazing how many people commented how relaxed I was on my wedding day. I completely owe this to John. The only thing my attention was directed to was marrying the love of my life.

John Gandy is hands down the best person for the job, a true pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him if you want a flawless, stress-free wedding!

John Gandy and his team at John Gandy Events were an absolute essential part of our wedding! We hired John early in the planning process due to busy work schedules, a wedding date around the holidays, and simply based on his reputation as being the best! And it was the best decision we made in the entire wedding planning process!

I was not a bride that knew exactly what she wanted, i.e. flowers, colors, but knew that I wanted it to be classic and elegant and that is exactly what I got! John helped with the design, flowers, securing reliable and trustworthy vendors, and coordinating with them directly so that I could focus on enjoying the wedding and all the festivities!

John made me and my parents feel at ease and confident at the very beginning and we never had to ask and/or worry about any particular vendors, questions, as he was on it!

His level of design, focus, attention to detail, and just respect in the industry (he asks and he gets responses!), makes his value in the planning process beyond measure! I personally have John and his team to thank when I received comments like "you seem so calm and relaxed" and I was thanks to him and knowing that he had everything taken care of and under control!

I would highly recommend using John Gandy Events--you will not be disappointed and it was the best decision I made in the entire process, other than saying "yes"!

I will miss working with them and if I need to plan another big event in the future, I know exactly who to call!

From my initial meeting with John Gandy to the final moments before we left after a perfect ceremony & reception, John Gandy and his team were absolute perfection. Our wedding was an outdoor wedding, so we had a lot more intricate details than most weddings, including fireworks!! Every recommendation that John made from our photographer/videographer to the caterer, flowers, tents, invitations, etc. was perfect. John surrounds himself with true professionals that know how to make your wedding something you would see in a magazine. All of his vendors are very responsive, detail oriented, and the best of the best. Throughout the planning process, John was literally an email or a phone call away. He was very responsive in every aspect of planning and always had original ideas. As the wedding date got closer, I was able to focus on my dress, hair and small details and John and his group literally did the rest. John and his crew set up everything from the ceremony sight to the reception and even arranged special transportation for our guests. When it all came together, I walked out to a cermony and reception site that was better than my dreams. The food was exceptional and everything thoughtout the night was orchestrated perfectly. My parents and my new husband had so many people tell us that we had the best wedding they'd ever been to. Several guests made the comment of "everything was just perfect." John Gandy Events is the best choice you can make for your wedding. He is hands down the reason why I had one of the best days of my life. Weddings are very detailed and can get stressful, but I enjoyed the months, days, and hours before my wedding day to the fullest all because of John Gandy and his team.

John Gandy was recommended to me by two coworkers. His price is minimal compared to what he provides.

He helped me choose vendors in my price range, kept me on track, came to almost all my appointments, completely set up and tore down, and ran the whole day. I was able to relax and enjoy the day entirely, as was my family. No one had to worry about a thing!

The biggest selling point for me was his warehouse full of decor and ability to bring my vision to life. We uses ceremony seating, patio furniture, farm tables, vases, candles and decor at no additional cost. Think of what you'll save from renting or buying these items.

His relationship with vendors is great. Most of them don't even require a deposit when working with John. Bottom line: if I had to do it over again, John Gandy would be my first phone call.

I just got back from my honeymoon, and am still reeling from the happiness and excitement of our wedding in Apalachicola, Florida. It was perfect, and would not have been so without John Gandy and his crew. John has an incredible ability to translate your ideas into reality. A highlight from my wedding - Tyler and I got married in an outdoor park - Lafayette Park in Apalachicola. The setting is breathtaking, all my favorite parts of the Florida Panhandle. But I told John that my only hesitation about the park was that I wouldn't have my "doors opening" moment like I would at a church. He said, "No problem. We'll build and install some amazing doors." You'd have to see it to believe it and understand - but he built and installed a beautiful set of doors at the entrance to the park that added to the romantic setting of our wedding. The decor of the entire night was spectacular, John and his staff were great, everyone was informed and on time, and my family and I were totally worry free leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day. Can't ask for much more than that. Also of note, this was John's first time planning an event at either my ceremony or my reception venue (The Gibson Inn in Apalachicola). You would never know. He worked with the venue staff and created something stunning. He also helped my mother-in-law plan an exquisite rehearsal dinner. John - thank you for your creativity, your attention to detail, and your patience. You made our wedding perfect!

John Gandy created the perfect wedding for my daughter. He took our thoughts and made them reality. He is creative, enthusiastic, and caring. He worked with us every step of the way. My daughter was married in a beautiful park but she wanted doors to enter through. John made it happen. He found doors and installed them. They were beautiful. He made everything happen so smoothly and flawlessly that I almost believe he ordered the crystal clear blue skies and the perfect temperatures we had all weekend. I cannot believe how calm I was throughout the weekend. I knew I was in great hands. I also want to make sure to praise the team he brought with him - they were outstanding!

John Gandy is a design genius! He took a look at one picture we provided him and turned my reception into the something more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. We wanted a very relaxed atmosphere, almost like a cozy living room feel, and he made that happen. He brought in beautiful furniture including sofas, arm chairs, rugs, end tables, chandeliers and more. The guests were raving about the beauty of it all. He created several little mini sections of the room so that people could get comfortable where ever they were. I am so happy that we decided to work with John; he's the best!

If I could give John 10 out of 5 stars on this review I would. I could give a million and one reasons why he made my wedding day the most fabulous event ever! He is simply the best. His attention to detail, personal tastes, and original ideas are out of this world, and his personality and professional charm make him an absolute blast to work with. He emanates such a perfectly balanced confidence in his abilities to plan the perfect event for you, that no matter what hiccups I encountered in my own decision making, I always knew I had his experience and artistic talent to help me wherever I needed. My wedding was planned exactly to me and my husband's individual tastes and ideas and then accentuated into an artistic masterpiece! I would recommend John Gandy's services to anyone in a heartbeat. THANK YOU, JOHN!!! I could never have had such a wonderful and memorable day without you!

John and The John Gandy Events Team was responsible for planning our wedding weekend (i.e., Rehearsal Dinner, Wedding) at Honey Lake Plantation from inception to completion. I was an out of town Bride looking for a full service planner (while accommodating my Type A personality) for a wedding with 130ish guests. John and his team exceeded our expectations from day one. Our wedding was exceptional!!! About two months after my wedding I heard of unpredictable things that happened, which John and his Team handled professionally, and we never even knew that had been taken care of by him and his team. Things that probably would have stressed me out on my wedding day, but thanks to John and his team we never even knew. MY HUSBAND, MOTHER, AND FATHER WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND JOHN GANDY EVENTS TO ANY FUTURE BRIDE AND GROOM!!!

John Gandy and his team were such an important part of the planning and execution of our New Year's Eve wedding. They are experts and the wedding was flawless! John provided help from the moment we met him until the last guest left the reception. He allowed us to enjoy the wedding and not worry about even one detail. He also made the process fun! His attention to the big picture and the details is incredible. Every suggestion he made was right on target. He is the utmost professional and worked extremely well with all vendors. His team was with us each step of the way. We could not have done with without John!

Working with John Gandy was a dream come true. He helped us through every single step of wedding planning and put up with all of our questions and concerns along the way, always putting us at ease! Planning a wedding for 400 seemed overwhelming at first, but with John's guidance and invaluable expertise, we knew we were in great hands.

When the big day came, it was more than I could have ever imagined. It exceeded all expectations and took my breath away. John and his team put together our dream wedding and I am forever grateful for that.

John made everything from the initial planning, to the rehearsal, to the wedding itself, a joy. He is incredible at what he does and passes on that love of wedding planning to his clients. John was always accessible and an amazing resource no matter how big or small our need was.

If you only make one purchase for your wedding day, it should be John Gandy. Our wedding would have never been close to what it was without him and we cannot recommend him enough.

Working with John Gandy was a pleasure. With living abroad and having to plan our wedding from 4,000 miles away, we wouldn't have been able to do it without him and his team. John Gandy had great ideas, the event space was decorated beautifully, and Team Gandy on the day (Ricky, Troy, and Terry) were absolutely invaluable. I can't thank them enough for their help and for taking care of every last detail so that we could relax and enjoy the day. Your wedding or event is in good hands (if not the best in Tallahassee) with John Gandy Events.

Guests continue to remark on the spectacular elegance of that day. Trust those little girl dreams you began formulating the very minute you saw your first bride to John Gandy and his team. My trust in them was immeasurable and rightfully so. The fruition of my dreams exceeded those that had only before lived in my imagination. To watch them unfold and come to life was one of the most moving experiences in my life. My wedding day was lovingly, dazzlingly, and flawlessly immortalized thanks to John Gandy and his team. Yours will be too when you allow John Gandy Events to capture and safeguard your most precious moments for you. Thank-you John and your most remarkable team!

He is also very much about the bride's desires for her wedding, while still being able to hear out the mother of the bride and help them to compromise on what they want to see happen. He has excellent rapport with the vendors in the area and he is able to gather the options that meet your budget and can meet the desires that you have for your wedding. Overall, we were beyond happy with JohnGandyEvents and would definitely recommend him every time for those looking for a wedding planner. He is GREAT!!

I wasn't so sure that hiring an event planner was a good idea as my daughter insisted on dealing with every vendor herself and is somewhat of a control freak. But, she insisted, so I went along. Wow, was I wrong!!!!

John was amazing. No words describe him sufficiently. He suggested additional vendors and just took care of any problem that arose. Near the wedding day when things were getting crazy, John just managed everything and made it look effortless.

John kept in constant contact with all of our vendors. Every time we spoke to them, they said, "yes, John has already told us that and we have the schedule." He always seemed to be about 2 steps ahead of us. Not only that, but all of the vendors seemed to LOVE him.

On the wedding day, he and his staff just made everything happen. At noon, I looked around the venue and just shook my head. By 5:00 everything was in place and all empty boxes just "disappeared." Unfortunately, rain also began (we had a outdoor wedding.) As soon as it stopped, they just went to work and by the wedding time at 6:30, everything was perfect. I told John, I kind of felt like I was living a movie. All kinds of things were going on around me; vendors rushing here and there, decorating taking place, the caterer making food, wet chairs being wiped off and I just got to stand there and watch!!!

John assigned Julie to the bride, bridemaids and me. She was awesome, awesome, awesome. Anything we needed just happened. She gently guided us to the wedding time and instead of chaos, everything just happened.

I cannot recommend John Gandy Events highly enough. He and his staff were certainly some of the bright points of this very special day.

He knows what he is doing and other competent event vendors who will make your event wonderful.

His suggestions for guests' comfort and enjoyment worked well. He responded quickly to emails and voicemails. John worked very hard on the day and had great attention to detail coordinating the caterer, the flowers vendor, the venue manager, the lighting guys, the cake baker, the linens rental, the musicians and the Tallahassee Trolley. The wedding day ran perfectly.

John Gandy and his coordinators made our dream wedding come true. They made the wedding planning fun and stress free. They were very flexible with meeting times and always stayed in contact with me through email, whether we were meeting in an hour or not. You will never feel like you are bothering them with your questions. The day of my wedding was absolutely amazing! It went very smooth and they took care of everything. All I had to do was show up and enjoy every minute. I don't even want to think about how my day would have went without them there. I highly recommend John Gandy and his services!!

John Gandy is beyond amazing! What a wonder he is to work with! He is a creative genius! John has an incredible talent which is to originate an event that is beyond your dreams! His approach is professional, patient and supportive, yet always competent and extremely efficient, offering the most imaginative ideas if you want them, or following your ideas if that is what you prefer (but you would be better off to use his creative mind!). He will work with your vendors so that, if you prefer, you never even need to consult with them, or he will allow you and your vendor to develop your own plan for him to carry out. And he does all this with twinkle in his eye, a smile on his face, and a warm word for his clients.

John Gandy and his staff truly exceed expectations. He is the brides ULTIMATE accessory on her big day! I can truly say I did not have to lift a finger on my big day...except enjoy my time with my family, friends, and loved ones who had traveled so far. I got to focus on being a bride and that was PRICELESS! John does it all and thinks of everything. Guests are still raving about the wedding one month later and can't stop talking about the DETAILS that John puts into every wedding. Not to mention, he is so behind the scenes and has everything under control, most of my guests did not even know I had a wedding planner. WoW!

John is not only the best wedding planner, he should be the only weddng planner!!! He is truly the best money I spent at my wedding (and that includes my dress, and I LOVED it!). I cannot say enough good things about the work that John and his staff do. The only thing I can say is that I don't know how people have weddings without him! Simply put....he is the best.

John was worth every penny! I was planning my wedding in Florida from Tennessee and John made everything so much less complicated! From wonderful vendor suggestions, to coordinating all the vendors, to adding some incredible personal touches to the wedding decor he kept the stress levels way down. We still talk about how relaxing, fun, and beautiful the wedding day was. He allowed us to really be able to connect with family and friends the week of the wedding instead of stressing over last minute details. I would highly recommend John and his crew!

Working with him on the planning was a great experience and it made my wedding that much more wonderful for me as a bride.

John Gandy is a gentleman and a professional providing unparalleled service that is above and beyond. He will provide vendors for you to choose from and is open to working with other vendors; this makes the entire process much more open and creative. Most importantly John has the ability to see outside the box and is a very artistic event designer. Whether it is for your wedding or a large corporate event John will help you carry out this vision and contribute ideas to ensure the event reflects your goals.

I have a degree in hospitality management from the University of Georgia, have worked as an event planner and fundraiser professionally since 2003, been a bridesmaid ten times, and guest to many friends and family members weddings and had the pleasure to work with John for our wedding March 27, 2010.
My favorite thing about every wedding I have attended is the reflection and statement it makes about the couple. All the details and choices involved in planning that make it personal and unique to the couple on their special day.
The service John provided to me and my husband allowed us to carry out our dream and accomplish the goals we set for our wedding and reception. We had a traditional wedding in a non-traditional location that transitioned into a magical reception. The entire wedding planning process and actual weekend I was relaxed and not concerned about any issues because I knew John would deliver what we wanted and handle any problems that might arise. John is easy to work with, dependable, talented, efficient, detail oriented, resourceful, dedicated, and innovative; making the entire process enjoyable for you, your groom and family.

The stress of a wedding is often talked about though invitations, dresses, guest lists, cakes, flowers and many other details. The importance of a wedding lies in starting a new portion of your life, redefining your identity, joining families, uniting as a couple, and making decisions about your future together.
John Gandy Events provides a valuable service that will enhance your experience and give you the time to focus on your future together. John does not let you to become overwhelmed with choices, is mindful of your timeline, the budget and reduces the stress of planning to provide you with time to focus on the importance of taking the next step to becoming a wife.

I would highly recommend John Gandy Events to any bride, event planner or anyone interested in hosting a first class event.

Thank you John!

JohnGandyEvents = Planning Perfection!!!!!



Finding a wedding coordinator was my first and most important priority. I didn’t even want to begin searching for other vendors until I had the right planner by my side. I contacted every name in the phone book and met with more planners than I care to admit. I’m not high-maintenance at all so I was very surprised I hadn’t found one after a month and a half. I had almost lost all hope when I was given a business card for JohnGandyEvents.

It was from the very moment I first met John Gandy that I knew he was “The One”. In fact, my groom and I both felt an immediate and undeniable connection with him. I sensed something different about John; somehow, he had something none of the others we’d already met had. I couldn’t put my finger on what “it” was, but I was certain that I not only wanted but NEEDED John Gandy to coordinate my wedding and reception.

From that point forward, John became my new best friend. He always made himself available to me, day or night, weekday or weekend, by listening to my concerns and answering my questions (or finding the answer when he didn’t already know it, which only happened once in a year’s time). John had a firm grasp on and complete understanding of my vision for our wedding day. On top of that, he used his creativity and expertise to take my ideas and transform them into something even better, without missing a single detail! He provided valuable, insightful advice when asked yet was never pushy.

John Gandy was the key element in the complete success of our wedding day. Every single one of his vendor suggestions weren’t just great, they were absolutely PERFECT!!! Based on his recommendations, we found/hired our photographer, videographer, florist, deejay, cake baker, makeup artist, linens rentals, furniture rentals, transportation and hotel accommodations (for guests AND for us, at a completely separate hotel). We truly had a fantastic team of professional wedding vendor all-stars, thanks to John!

John, along with his assistants Juli and Ricky, were each outstanding the day of our wedding. They went above and beyond at every opportunity they had. They completely transformed an already beautiful reception site into a gorgeous dream; it looked as if it came right out of a bridal magazine. You would expect to find this type of high-quality work in New York City, but I found it right here in Tallahassee with JohnGandyEvents. People are STILL talking about how amazing our wedding and reception were…which took place just over 6 months ago now!

Simply put, John is an absolutely phenomenal wedding coordinator. There isn’t a person the man doesn’t know, a task he can’t perform, a situation he won’t resolve or a string he isn’t able to pull. Once the majority of our “after-the-wedding” hubbub had quieted down, I was finally able to put my finger on what “it” was that none of the other planners had but I’d sensed John did: planning perfection to the highest degree.

If you are thinking about hiring a planner, please learn from my experience(s) and allow me to save you a TON of frustration and wasted time/energy: look no further and choose JohnGandyEvents. This was without a doubt the absolute best decision we made and I am positively certain you will feel the same way!

Based on his recommendations, we found/hired our photographer, videographer, florist, deejay, cake baker, makeup artist, linens rentals, furniture rentals, transportation and hotel accommodations (for guests AND for us, at a completely separate hotel). We truly had a fantastic team of professional wedding vendor all-stars, thanks to John!

John, along with his assistants Juli and Ricky, were each outstanding the day of our wedding. They went above and beyond at every opportunity they had. They completely transformed an already beautiful reception site into a gorgeous dream; it looked as if it came right out of a bridal magazine. You would expect to find this type of high-quality work in New York City, but I found it right here in Tallahassee with JohnGandyEvents. People are STILL talking about how amazing our wedding and reception were…which took place just over 6 months ago now!

Simply put, John is an absolutely phenomenal wedding coordinator. There isn’t a person the man doesn’t know, a task he can’t perform, a situation he won’t resolve or a string he isn’t able to pull. Once the majority of our “after-the-wedding” hubbub had quieted down, I was finally able to put my finger on what “it” was that none of the other planners had but I’d sensed John did: planning perfection to the highest degree.

If you are thinking about hiring a planner, please learn from my experience(s) and allow me to save you a TON of frustration and wasted time/energy: look no further and choose JohnGandyEvents. This was without a doubt the absolute best decision we made and I am positively certain you will feel the same way! Read less

John was absolutely wonderful!! I cannot sing his praises enough! He helped relieve so much stress that is involved with planning a wedding. As the bride, I depended on him so much and he exceeded every expectation I had. He coordinated with all the vendors. He also had design ideas that were absolutely fabulous. He even picked out my rehearsal dinner dress!! When I think of our wedding, I think of John Gandy as well. I would definitely recommend him to any couple planning a wedding or event!

As an event planner myself having John Gandy as my wedding coordinator was the best decision my finance and I made for our wedding day. The parents enjoyed the wedding because John took care of all the details and of course the Bride & Groom had a blast...no worries at all. I remember right before we were about to leave the reception site John asked my husband if he needed anything before getting into the car and Mike said "Yes, my wallet"....we were leaving at 7:30am for our honeymoon....thank God for John Gandy!!!! The wedding was an incredible, unfortgettable weekend and we were blessed to have John Gandy and his team a part of our special day!

He will be an advocate for you as well as a friend.....and that's what make him such a great wedding planner.

The best decision we made for the wedding was hiring John Gandy. The experience we had with John was truly what made the wedding a wonderful event. There was no pressure or stress and our needs were always the only thing that mattered to John.

John's calm demeanor and knowledge was exactly what was needed. He helped select vendors that delivered outstanding results and kept the entire event within the budget we selected at the beginning of the process. He responded to our calls and emails promptly and never made us feel that we were a bother (no matter how many times a day we contacted him).
When plans or choices changed, John calmly made the adjustments and took care of any last minute details that we added. We could not have had the successful occasion we did if it had not been for John. Any bride would be lucky to get him. His value was way more than the cost for his services. I highly recommend John - he is exceptional in all areas.

I would highly recommend John Gandy Events to any bride looking for an event planner. I had a very good experience. I had already booked my reception venue and caterer and a few other things by the time I realized that I would need help. I selected a reception venue that did not have staff or anyone to keep things at my wedding on schedule and running correctly. John is an excellent time manager and thinks on his feet very well. I had a few last minute issues with ceremony length and special photos that I wanted that he resolved in minutes. I really felt lucky to have him design the flow of the room as well as estimate how many chairs and tables and where to put them. I had to rent plates and silverware and all kind of things that he very easily calculated. He was able to break down decisions according to price when I needed him to as well. I felt all of the decisions he helped me make were done objectively and had my happiness as well as functionality in mind. He recommended a make up artist as well as a florist and both did a very nice job. It seems he works well with other vendors and can collaborate easily with others for a seamless event. I really got to enjoy my wedding day because I knew everything was under control. And I don't let things go out of my control very easily :) He was worth every penny.

Having a wedding planner/coordinator is in my opinion a MUST.... JG and his team are very professional and they know how to guide you into making your wedding the wedding of your dreams.. They take the stress out of the decision making and help you finalize all the overwhelming details that go into making the event complete... I highly recommend JG Events, without them my daughters wedding wouldn't have been so beautiful....

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about John Gandy and his staff. My now husband and I decided to find a wedding planner because we were just too busy with grad school, work and doctor's appointments (we're expecting a baby girl!) to do the research and planning ourselves. Everything that I read about John online was very positive, so we met him in person. I knew right away that he was the right man for the job. John waqs always professional, VERY flexible around our schedules, and he had great vendor connections. He made everything so low-stress for me, I felt free to focus on my schoolwork and pregnancy rather than sweat the wedding details.

If you're looking for a planner that will give you great suggestions, listen to all of your desires, be flexible around your schedule, and who will take as much of your stress off of your shoulders as possible, then John Gandy is the man you're looking for :-) Thank you so much John for all of your hard work!

John Gandy himself did not attend our wedding but his staff was eager, professional and made sure everything went smoothly. I will admit it was weird for me to basically have personal assistants for the day.
Before the event our primary communication was email and there were a few times we had to repeat answers to questions and two smaller details got lost but we didn't worry about it on the day.
The two of us (Bride and Groom) are very vague on what we wanted and not very good at getting the look and feel of things right. This is where John Gandy Events excels - our wedding was beautiful with details we never even thought about. The furniture in the courtyard during the cocktail hour were wonderful and something we would never have done if we were planning/doing our wedding ourselves. This was the second time my family has chosen John Gandy as the wedding planner.

I give a four in responsiveness only because
I had a question the day before the event and
called the contact person, but never received a
call back. We were so pleased though with everything else.

Janice was the staff member that worked with me at the event. She followed my instructions and set up everything exactly like I had requested. She also incorporated some last minute ideas and items that I had supplied. She was AWESOME to work with and went above and beyond my expectations. Loved working with her!

the only negative thing I could say is that they forgot to bring one of the items we had rented from their inventory of rental items.

John Gandy and his staff are terrific! John was great to work with during the planning process. He took the time to understand my vision, and he provided great advice to help me achieve it.
On my wedding day I didn't have to worry about a thing. John and his staff did a great job controlling the pace and flow of the day.
A few minutes before I walked down the aisle my mother-in-law told me that hiring John was the best decision I made during the planning process. I couldn't agree more!

Well oiled operation! Would recommend with no hesitation. In fact, already have!

Advice: Alert patrons at outset of negotiations that delayed responses do not mean that inquiries were not received. While all inquiries were ultimately addressed, it was stressful sometimes not knowing whether they got lost or were considered unworthy of response. Totally understandable that attention must be focused on wedding in process. But some system for assuring weddings in-line that their inquiries are being received/processed and they'll be addressed soon. Maybe an auto-reply message stating "Got it. Be back to you soon."

Amazing planner! I would highly recommend him & his team for any wedding. He kept the stress off of my family and I during the wedding day which is exactly what I wanted and brought my ideas to life down to the smallest details.
It was a fairytail wedding thanks to John and his team.

John Gandy events was wonderful and we could not have had such a beautiful wedding if it was not for John Gandy and his team. He took time to really get to know our style so he would be able to make decisions on our behalf if necessary. On the day of the wedding, he and his team were very responsive and helped with any problems that arose.

I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism, quality of service, attention to detail, friendliness and talent that Gandy Events provides. Our vision for the wedding was very important to us, and the event related selections were going to help provide the appropriate look and feel of the wedding. It was very important that we had a planner who understood what we were looking for and what we were not looking for.

John worked diligently to understand our vision and implement what we wanted. His attention to detail, and his amazing staff was incredibly helpful throughout the wedding day. I would highly recommend him.

I rate John only a 4 out of 5 stars for Quality of Service because we had struggles keeping to our budget. My family and I had put together a very detailed budget with line items for food, flowers, services ect. On a number of occasions, John introduced us to vendors who returned quotes MUCH higher than would fit into our budget. If I could do it all over again, I'd have a much more detailed conversation with him about costs and ask for his help weeding out the more expensive vendors.

Overall, the wedding was amazing and beautiful and I couldn't be more pleased to have worked with John.
