Donovan-Groves Events

We are a Charlottesville based wedding planning firm, with an additional office in Georgetown for our Northern Virginia couples. At Donovan-Groves Events, we take pride in providing exceptional service throughout the planning process. From the first consultation through the final sendoff, we are available to assist you in creating your perfect wedding. Most importantly, we understand and appreciate that all weddings are different, and that all couples desire different levels of planning attention.

We only work with one couple each weekend to ensure you have our complete focus and attention.

Planning

Full Service Planning

Our Full Service Planning option guides you through every step of your wedding. We assist you in the planning of every detail and work with you in selecting the venue, photographer, caterer, musicians, calligrapher, officiant, and all vendors needed to build the perfect team for your wedding.

Partial Planning

Our Partial Service Planning option lets you decide the elements of the wedding with which you need the most assistance. We respect that there are aspects of the process you prefer to plan on your own, and we are happy to incorporate those into your overall event. Our packages allow for flexibility and help you make the most out of your planning experience.

Month-Of Planning

Our Month-Of Planning option is designed to assist our couples who require minimal planning assistance. We work with you in the final stages of your planning to help bring it all together and give you the freedom to enjoy your wedding day.

    Adam is on top of it, a joy to work with and flexible!

    I can't say enough amazing things about working with Adam. He is not only an expert in this industry but an absolute joy to work with (in fact, I really looked forward to our meetings). He knows every vendor and will empower you with all the facts to make the right decision for you personally. He also has an incredible eye to make things beautiful.

    I have been particularly struck by his flexibility, ingenuity and empathy throughout this COVID crisis. This has been a difficult for all ,and he has been my advocate and support system every step of the way.

    I highly recommend choosing Adam!

    Deep Gratitude from Mother of the Bride

    Adam and Donovan-Groves Events is simply amazing! Adam helped my daughter and son-in-law design and execute the most beautiful and magical wedding in spite of COVID restrictions and set backs due to a rain downpour. Adam is an excellent communicator, easily made adjustments as things came up, attended to every last detail, and supported the bride and groom in every way. As the mother of the bride I also felt deeply cared for. I highly recommend Adam Donovan-Groves and his excellent team.

Adam Groves-Donovan is, in my opinion, the best in the business. I am always thrilled when I get to work with him, and not just because he is so very professional--he is also so sincere, generous, and best of all--chill and reassuring at the right moments.
