The Best Investment We Have Ever Made
If there is one investment you make in your wedding, it should be with Gabrielle and Black Swan Events. She was the saving grace of our big day, especially during COVID wedding times. This woman is more than a wedding planner, she is driven, organized, and the steady hand we all needed during the uncertain times. Not once did Jordan and I feel worried or scared about our wedding. If plans needed to change, she made sure to have multiple other solutions before we had a chance to panic. One thing that makes her stand out among everyone else, is Gabrielle cares. She deeply cares for her clients and puts you at the top of her priority list. She is extremely established and well versed and there is not one detail missed. She will take your vision and make your wedding dreams come true. If you are looking for a wedding planner, look no further Gabrielle is your girl.Sent on 11/16/2020

HIRE GABRIELLE! I planned a wedding of 35 people at the end of August 2020 during all the corona virus craziness. Gabrielle was fantastic to work with. I was very skeptical that I needed a day of coordinator but once we hired her we decided it was the best decision we made. Her communication was top-notch, very consistent, extremely detailed. Her knowledge and advice about weddings was incredible. She brought things up that I would never think about, down to the very last detail. Gabrielle went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and our wedding went extremely smooth. When you hire Gabrielle you are hiring someone who truly cares about you and your wedding, you will not regret it!Sent on 08/31/2020
