Weddings| Eight Year of Planning Weddings

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.

Christy and Taylor Summer wedding at The Riverhouse was a feminine and elegant affair.  They had perfect weather- warm, breeze and sunny. Everything you could hope for a St. Augustine, Florida wedding!

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.

These lovebirds meet at church and wanted a very chic wedding with great music because they love to Dance. Soft pinks, ivory and champagne, accompanied by gold, were the tasteful color pallet of the day.

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.

Alexis & Dan were married over the Summer at The Riverhouse in St. Augustine. I love that the Riverhouse has a ballroom feel, but with lots of natural light and a waterfront backdrop. It is clean, elegant and timeless. And has lots of parking (which is a big win for St. Augustine venues)!

Real Weddings| Adrienne and Peter| Blush and Gold Home Wedding

Adrienne and Peter's blush and gold home wedding is probably one of my favorite weddings ever! One: I loved working with Adrienne and Peter, Adrienne's mom Linda and bother Ross (this was a family affair). Two: beautiful couple, great location, amazing food and gorgeous decor, you cannot ask for more. Well, maybe a great guest experience, but we made sure they had that too. Many of the moments of the night reflected on Adrienne and Peter's relationship, their travels and their family. From them meeting in New York, living in Miami, Peter's family being form Ecuador and family being so important; we had to make sure all those details shined throughout the whole event.
