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.
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.

Holly has been nothing but professional and a great coordinator. We first met her at our event open house and we recommend her to all of our clients. If you are looking for a great wedding planner Holly is the perfect choice!Sent on 09/27/2016

Making the Impossible Possible
We hired Anything But Gray Events to assist in wedding coordinating for three months prior to our wedding and the day of. I am an extremely detail oriented person so I had already thought through many details but what you don't think about are the things that make it all come together, like bathrooms haha! We had our ceremony and reception at two different venues which alone would be difficult to coordinate but on top of that one of our venues was an off the grid stargazing retreat so we really had to have everything brought in! Holly and her team were amazing at bringing ALL of our vendors together and making sure the day went off seamlessly! Everything was on time and coordinated to a T! Holly was also wonderful at providing me recommendations for anything and everything that I hadn't thought of yet and/or needed, she is a wealth of recommendations. Hight recommended especially if are looking to make the seemingly impossible possible! Thank you Anything But Gray Events!
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend them for your wedding!
