Gilly was the perfect wedding planner. Super involved without being overbearing. Offering wonderful advice and being patient with all of our families opinions and concerns! We had the most perfect wedding day thanks to Gilly and the wedding planning experience was easy and stress free! Loved her ideas and her ability to work with each vendor individually and make the day go beyond smoothly! She went above and beyond. We love Gilly and appreciate her efforts during such a special time to make our day perfect. She also has traveled the world and has PERFECT recommendations for travel. Highly, highly recommend! Our wedding was planned right after and during the covid shut down and had about 300 people attend and it was perfect!

Gilly helped me plan my Athens, GA wedding and there are not enough wonderful things to say about her. She went above and beyond at every turn and made me feel like every detail was taken care of. I had the pleasure of working with her over the course of 2 full years as my wedding was postponed due to Covid and I mean it when I say I will genuinely miss my correspondence with her. Gilly made my wedding go off without a hitch and while I sincerely enjoyed working with each and every vendor, if I could only pick one of them again it would be Gilly.

Gilly was such a Pro! It was a joy to work with her. She anticipated things that I had forgot to even share with her. I would not give a second thought hiring her! Very responsive, timely, professional and kind!!!
