When Taylor told me she was getting married, I was so excited for her and Wes (I actually meet Wes when I did Taylor sister's wedding a few years prior and I justs knew that was going to the start of something special). Then she told that she wanted a small wedding at home and I was like "Oh Yes, building spaces from the ground up are my jam!". She wanted the string lights and everything outside under the stars. She wanted to make sure that the Tree that Wes proposed to her under was made a centerpiece of the wedding as well.
Congratulations, Lovelies! You now have that gorgeous ring on your finger and you have a wedding to plan. You have already started following some of your favorite wedding inspirations on Instagram and are trying to read every planning blog you come across, because lets face it you may not have had to plan a wedding before and you have no idea what you need to be doing or where you should even start, right?
I cannot believe this past April has been eight years of planning weddings for G.G. Events. It has been an amazing journey and I cannot thank all of my couples, their family and friends, my family and friends, and vendors enough for all the love, support and trust you have put into me and this business. I would not be able to do what I love without any of you.
Lindsay + Brian’s Epping Forest Yacht Club wedding was one for the books! They pulled out all the stops for their guests and it was absolutely gorgeous! Epping Forest is at the top of my list for luxury wedding venues because, well, do you see that view? Of course, that isn’t the only thing- they have amazing amenities, fantastic food, and stellar service. They KNOW luxury and provide Northeast Florida with a top-notch option that I’m proud to recommend to my clients.
Not a detail was forgotten. Not a moment not captured. The ambience of Bella Collina in Montverde (just outside of Orlando) is truly captivating. It will take your breath away- the old world charm with all of the modern, luxurious amenities. The string lighting, the sweeping oak trees, the lush greens- it is a backdrop that can’t be forgotten. Despite the expansive space, it still feels intimate. As if you have been swept away to a Tuscan village and you are at a private estate with your closest friends and family.
Paras and Louis had a unique wedding event filled with American and Persian traditions. This beautiful couple had a two day wedding extravaganza! They began with a traditional Persian ceremony at the Casa Monica on Friday. They followed that by a traditional American wedding & reception on Saturday! They picked two of St. Augustine’s most beautiful and historic locations- The Casa Monica hotel and Lightner Museum. The team of all-star vendors brought to life Paras’ vision of classic elegance. Crisp white with luxury gold accents.
