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.

We were so fortunate to choose Gilly Francis as our wedding planner. From the beginning, Gilly had everything in hand. She offered outstanding recommendations, communicated with our vendors, and arranged everything we needed. Gilly kept us calm and collected throughout the process. She negotiated good rates with the various vendors, and she knew the ins and outs when it came to our venue, the caterer, and the photographer. On the day of the wedding, I had nothing to worry about. Gilly was on top of everything. No glitches. All things ran smoothly. She knew exactly what to do, and we were able to just focus on having an amazing time. We had several issues with our florist, and Gilly was professional and assertive, and she handled the issues. We had another issue with the florist days after the wedding, and again, Gilly got involved and advocated for us. We could not have asked for a better leader and team player. I recommend Gilly Francis highly and without reservation. ...

Gilly Francis was truly the best wedding planner! With all of the adjustments we had to make due to COVID-19, we would not have been able to pull off the amazing wedding we had without her. Being out of town, we were not able to meet in person with our venue ourselves so Gilly was able to be there to make sure every little detail was well planned out. Gilly made sure our wedding day was beautiful while my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy every moment!
