    Amazing experience!

    I highly recommend Jenelli Agresti best know as “Gigi.” I know in the process of planning a wedding, there are many things you question. I am here to tell you that hiring Gigi was the best decision I made. She was invaluable! Even right after our ceremony my husband and I were in the limo ride to our reception and we looked at each other, and agreed how we could have never done it without her!
    From the very first conversation i knew what an amazing asset she was going to be. She is so knowledgeable, gives amazing advice and is just so friendly and kind. She is such a well rounded person, and I could promise her reassurance, advice, and guidance are words to live by!!!
    Gigi is someone you NEED by your side during this process. She will help you beyond words, but at the same time, enjoys the process with you. Her team was so professional and just as attentive and kind.
    I am so grateful to have met such a wonderful person.

    Wedding Whisperer for a Magical Wedding

    There is not enough room here to truly convey all of the details of our fantastic experience with Gigi and her wedding team. Our wedding happened to be a pretty large production that lasted about 7 hours, though felt like a dream that could have lasted forever. Our event spanned over four venues within the Biltmore hotel country club. It included a live dinner concert with a famous recording artist, live show performance with a local performance celebrity, live harpist, string quartet, and about 20 vendors for everything you could imagine. We did not have one 'stock' item provided by the hotel... every detail was selected by hand with a 3rd party vendor. This combined with 200 family and close friends, and two grooms (one that wants 'more more more' and the other that has major control/OCD issues) - at the end of the day there is not one person or vendor or family or groom that didn't feel personally cared for and connected to Gigi.

    It all started about a year before the wedding, during the pandemic. Our first meet was via Zoom. Instantly we felt a connection with her. Just meet with her (zoom or in person), and you'll know what I mean. What we loved about her is that she first listened to what we wanted, where we were at, and questions we had. She was very keen on making sure we wanted her opinion (highly recommend if you're not a professional wedding-goer) before sharing, which we welcomed. She had a great way of listening to some of our over-the-top ideas, and then bringing a reality to it. Most people shy away, not Gigi. She is a person that makes things happen. If it can't be done, you know that she's done her research before sharing limitations; more importantly, she always had a solution in mind.

    We went into planning our wedding with a vision, a rough draft. Most of our vision was on a large excel worksheet (I'm the OCD one of the pair). As we worked through vendors and selections, Gigi was able to take what we had and put a plan in place, and helped with revisions and identify things we missed (thank god!). She was present at all of our tastings and showings, and made a point of staying in close contact with not only us but also the vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page. We never felt like we were going it alone. Being a controlling personality, it was very difficult for me to pass things on. I mean, the only way to do things right if you do them yourself, right? Wrong. Not with Gigi. Not only did we truly feel (and know) that she had everything under control, we always felt as though we were her only client. That being said, we also knew we weren't her only client. Calls and texts were always responded to either immediately or the same day. This speaks volumes for someone in her business.

    As the day approached, it was time to pass the torch completely to Gigi. We had spent a year planning and preparing. Her biggest message to us was this "I don't want my grooms to be thinking of anything except each other on their special day". It was true. The day finally came.... and it was magical. Our guests were beside themselves at how amazing the production was, and how things were executed flawlessly. And that was just the events leading up to the main reception. When our guests entered the main reception... Gigi and her team's work in making everything ABSOLUTELY PERFECT was just as we expected: Flawless. The only thing outnumbering the 'ooh's/ahh's', 'wow', and 'omg' was the number of iPhone taking pictures and videos. From all of the special ordered chairs, mirrored tables, covered stage, florals, lights, music, place settings, the 7 foot wedding cake (yes, 7 actual feet tall)...(the list goes on and on)... the details and execution were something out of a dream. It was everything we had hoped for, and she and her team made sure it was just that - our dream come true.

    Side note - it's important to know (as I learned) that unexpected things (At work, I call them ‘fires’) sometimes do happen, especially with so many moving parts and people involved. For this reason, it's important to have someone on your side that can deal with issues, take control, and not panic. On our wedding night there was a medical emergency with one of our mothers who passed out (she was fine, just overwhelmed with everything). Somehow Gigi had the night's dinner courses and entertainment keeping everyone occupied whilst arranging for paramedics to come and care for our mom. Many of our guests later said they had no idea what happened. I hope that doesn't happen to anyone else, as it was a scare... but know that you're event will be ‘fire-proof’ if Gigi is there.

    Just as Gigi was always a text or a call away, and always made us feel important throughout the year of planning... that didn't stop during the actual wedding day. While she was running around dealing with the myriad of vendors, the wedding party, the guests, etc., she always (and regularly) was checking on us and our family and wedding party, making sure we were ok, making sure we were smiling and enjoying ourselves. If there were any fires, she was taking care of them, and we, nor our guests, would know it. We just would see our beautiful Gigi, smiling and hugging us. Of all of the memories we had that night, Gigi's warm presence and smile were among them.

    I'll close with this. If you're looking for someone that will listen, is extremely experienced in all things wedding related, provides no less than top shelf service, is extremely well connected, very organized and solution driven, has a positive and warm demeanor, and has a solid team with the capacity of putting together a small elegant affair up to a major wedding production - you will not find another more qualified and enjoyable wedding planner like Gigi. Our special day could not have been so magical without Gigi and her team.

    All around incredible

    Seriously could not agree more with the other reviews. I feel like writing a love letter to Gigi only second to my husband.

    She will miss NOTHING on your wedding day. She is organized, kind, devoted, and a wonderful person all around. She has vendors to suggest (we ended up using many of her suggestions which were phenomenal) and she is flexible with going with whatever you want. My only regret is we didn’t use her for the full wedding coordination!

    The wedding industry is crazy and is devoted to one time customers - having someone like Gigi to navigate it with and for you is 100% worth it.
