As a fellow event professional, I am very particular about how a personal event for myself is conducted. I wouldn't trust anyone else but Gwen with my wedding. It was exactly what we wanted, nothing more and nothing less. I didn't have to think about anything, thus I didn't have to WORK! What a delight. It was professional and personal.

Of everything in our budget, Gwen was, by far, THE BEST MONEY WE SPENT!!! She is, in short, AMAZING! But if you need more then that read on. From handling all of the particulars to the added touches and surprises she incorporated for us, I could not have asked for a better planner!

Our wedding was 100% destination and planning from afar wasn't easy. Gwen took over all of the details and loose ends (which there were a lot of) for our November wedding about 8 weeks out. We had a lot of planning left to do and I was nervous about everything until she took the reins. She took our scrambled planning and loose ends and put them all together for an INCREDIBLE celebration!!

She made a number of site visits with us and on her own to make sure things were just right at our venue. With her anything is possible, never a "no," just a matter of how, and she ALWAYS figured out how. You name it she was there - problem comes up, she has a solution; drunken guest, she runs interference. In addition, she's a great mediator - not everyone gets along during the planning process (moms and brides) but she figured out a way to make everyone happy. And that's just scratching the surface, I could go on forever!

Gwen is very well seasoned, extremely organized and very personable. The best part, from the moment we hit the ground Gwen and her team were ready and we didn't have to worry about a thing. You'll definitely want her to be in charge of your big day, everything will be just as it should be, PERFECT!!

I could not have been more satisfied with the service that Gwen provided for our wedding. She is ultra organized, professional, and creative. She had excellent vendor recommendations and relationships, and she really understood the tone and style of the event we had in mind, and helped us to realize that dream. She was very prompt in all our contacts (phone & email), easy to talk to, and she often offered ideas to help compromise when something on our wish list was unavailable for any reason. She definitely helped us to work within our budget, often showing us places we could cut corners where guests wouldn't notice.

My large extended family keeps talking about how it was the best wedding they've ever been to. I know that my wedding would not have been the epic success it was without Gwen, and I would recommend her to everyone.
