Wedding Disasters and How to Avoid Them

 Wedding Disasters and How to Avoid Them

Let's face it, you do not want your wedding day to be remembered as a disaster or by stressing about the possibility of what could wrong. Example, we live in Florida, that means for a few months out the year it's Hurricane season. Last year alone, was one of the worst with the impact that Irma left on our city. It's for this reason I actually do not take on Florida weddings from August to late October now, unless certain requirements are met. If you do decided to get married during Hurricane season, please invest in wedding insurance. Wedsafe and Traveler's offer some great policies to help protect you from possible wedding disasters. 

Of course, we can only do so much about Mother Nature, but here are some of the other things that can happen and ways we have helped fix or avoid these potential problems.

Real Weddings| Taylor and Wes| Colorful Home Wedding

Real Weddings| Taylor and Wes| Colorful Home Wedding

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.

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.

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.

Real Weddings| Alexis and Dan| Classic River House Wedding

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)!
