A little over four years ago, my husband and I were married in a small yet glorious church with a Chinese wedding banquet receptionan event that attendees still say was the most amazing wedding they had ever experienced. This is significant, considering that nearly half of the guests were our elders, over 60 years of age and some even in their eighties and nineties, and many had traveled from other parts of the country and outside the U.S.
My husband and I designed the invitations, selected the venues, and made some arrangements in the earlier stages of planning. However, I decided to hire Gina based on my intuition telling me that she was the person who could easily get up to speed and take over as lead planner, honor and respect our eastern european and asian traditions, and orchestrate the special day so that we could relax and enjoy it with our family and closest friendsover 100 loved ones. My instincts were absolutely correct.
With the exception of my late arrival to the church (a funny story I might publish someday), everything went flawlessly. Gina and her team were everywhere yet subtle in their presence, as they coordinated all the vendors and made our guests feel loved at very the same time. How did she do this? Who knows, but it spoke volumes about Gina's great energy and style. She was especially amazing in the way she understood the nuances of my chronic pain and mobility issues and responded with the support I needed in during the planning stage and throughout our long wedding event. Again, how? Don't know. But I'm still very grateful to this day.
It has taken me a few years to sit down and write this review, but I am just as enthusiastic about my experience in working with her today as I was back then. We are both intense, serious women who target the details but can step back to gain healthier perspectives on things. More importantly however, we can giggle together like nobody's business! Although I may never be a bride againother than at our wedding anniversary celebrationsI certainly will hire her for other important events in the future. Perhaps my daughter will decide to get married someday. ;)
Best wishes to you and your loved ones in planning for this special day. May you find blessings every which way you turn and enjoy the ride!
