Holly Gray is the absolute best!
There are not enough great things I can say about Holly and Anything But Gray Events! We just got married in Palm Springs and live on the East Coast. Holly navigated us through the entire process with grace and ease. We gave her a high level vision of what we wanted and trusted her to make it happen. She nailed every decision, big or small, and the whole wedding went off without a hitch. She took care of everything day-of and we didn't have to lift a finger. All of the vendors she linked us with were great and the one time we had a small hiccup Holly had it solved immediately! There is no way we could have done it without her and her team.Sent on 04/15/2019
If you want your event to have to have that wow factor (and lots of color) Holly is the only choice! We're sad we don't get to work with her anymore now that the wedding is over, but she'll be our first call next time we have a major event to plan!
Anything But Gray Events's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words. Working you with and EJ was my absolute pleasure. A pink flamingo wedding in Palm Springs was made for you both!

Fly Away with Holly!
Look no further: hire Holly as your wedding planner! Holly helped us create our dream Pan Am wedding that took over a year to put together.
When Holly began the planning process, she helped us stay focused on having a wedding in which our guests would think, "Wow, that's so Adam and Joe!" every step of the way. The end result was a beautiful blend of my love of midcentury modern aesthetics and my husband's lifelong passion for aviation that took our breath - and that of our guests - away!
Holly kept us on task over the course of our engagement with reasonable, bite-sized amounts of work on our end of the wedding planning bargain. In fact, we literally had nothing to do the last week before wedding because we got everything done, giving us the time to simply enjoy the precious few moments of that special period that fly by so quickly!
Holly also has deep ties with great vendors, from photographers to paper goods to photobooth creators to the entire team at Pan Am Experience, who made our special day so extraordinary. When you work with Holly, you know you're getting the best of the best; there's no time for amateur hour!
We can't sing Holly's praises enough!Sent on 11/26/2019
Anything But Gray Events's reply:Thank you so much A & J for trusting me to take your Pan Am vision and run with it. Your wedding was unique and reflected both of your personalities so well. Congratulations to these forever co-pilots!

19 days to plan a destination wedding
19 days to plan a destination wedding. A daunting task, but Holly made it seem easy. We barely had a venue secured, much less flowers, photographer, band, dj or anything else. While we did our day jobs in Australia, which included traveling every week for 4 weeks before our wedding, Holly did hers in LA - and made it all happen. With only a few calls (and lots of follow up emails) she made sure we were on track, and locked down everything we needed for a fantastic day. She set up the video conferences so that she could see us "in person" even though we didn't actually meet until two days before the wedding. This really helped us connect and feel like we were in the right hands.Sent on 03/24/2019
She struck a balance of rolling with the punches and making sure the key elements were in place for the day. With her extensive network, she was able to give us a few (excellent) choices for key vendors so we could make decisions quickly and feel comfortable that everything would be great. She visited the venue with the vendors and worked out how to set up and break down so that we got the most possible time and made some key suggestions about how to set up and decorate so that the backyard patio of a bar became an amazing haven just for us. Her styling and layout for the venue really pulled it all together.
She was unflappable as we came up with crazy ideas, and helped make them happen - including helping my partner to get an ice cream truck as a surprise for me! She was the reassuring presence I needed when I freaked out about my dress, and was just focused on making sure that I felt happy and confident for the day.
By the time the day arrived everything was all set and went incredibly smoothly. She made sure we stayed hydrated, and that we got a few moments to ourselves, to pause and take it in. Her experience was so key as she was able to just be where she needed to be to support and help me without it ever feeling like we had a wedding planner hovering and directly everything from a clipboard. I got several comments of amazement at how well I'd pulled it all off, which really all comes down to hiring Holly at the beginning.
Anything But Gray Events's reply:You gave me one of the best challenging of my wedding planner career - 19 days till I do. K & L, your brunch wedding in a bar was upbeat, colorful, and so much fun to help plan! Thank you for letting me take this planning journey with you!
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend them for your wedding!
