About

On WeddingWire since 2020

Hi! I’m Kari Gibbons, Owner of Everlasting Elegance, a wedding planning business based in Cumming, Georgia. First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! This is such an exciting time in your life, and I am honored to be considered to join your vendor team. Hiring a coordinator or a planner is one of the best things you can do to ensure your planning and ideas come to fruition. I can’t wait to learn more about your upcoming wedding, but first, let me tell you a little bit about me.

I graduated UGA in 2015 with a degree in Public Relations (GO DAWGS!) and began working in the PR field right after graduation. Within the field of PR, I always gravitated towards projects that involved event planning. I switched career paths and spent two year working for venues to gain experience. I opened my own planning and coordination business in 2020, and have had the opportunity be a part of many amazing couples' big days!

Launching my business has changed my life. I’ve been blessed to help couples make their wedding dreams a reality. I get so much joy from helping couples create and execute one of the most special days in their lives, and I hope to be able to join you on your wedding journey.

Services Offered

I offer both Month-of Coordination, Partial Planning, Full Planning. I am also happy to work with couples in creating a customized package that fits their needs exactly. Let's chat and see what level of service is the best fit for you!

Month-of Coordination: For the couple who wants to ensure nothing has been overlooked. By bringing in a coordinator a month before your wedding day you can rest assured that there won't be any detrimental surprises or details that got overlooked. Having someone to go over your plans this far in advance allows you to implement or improve anything that may be lacking or missing. Enjoy the excitement that comes in the weeks leading up to your wedding, rather than stressing about what could go wrong.

Partial Planning: The perfect compromise if you can't decide between Full Planning and Month of Coordination. You want to take the lead in planning your wedding, but you still want someone to make sure you're doing it right. With partial planning you get the process started and you decide at what point we start assisting and how. Think of this package as having a personal wedding assistant!

Full Service Planning: For the couple who needs help planning the majority of their wedding. Ideal for the couple who is overwhelmed by wedding planning or are simply too busy to successfully plan a wedding on their own. We'll walk you through it every step of the way. We start with setting a budget and figuring out what is most important to you on your wedding. From there we can help you with vendor selection, ceremony and reception design, budget management and everything in between. We help keep the to do list manageable and you on track.

Event Design: Does the idea of trying to figure out how to decorate your venue stress you out? Let us step in and help eliminate that stress. Not only can we come up with the ideas and show you how to execute, but we can also provide all the elements including the florals. This package is frequently paired with Month of Coordination!

Thankful bride

Kari was amazing and saved my wedding day! I am so beyond thankful for her services and am glad that I chose her as a wedding planner. Not only was she extremely professional in dress, appearance, and coordination, but she was so easy to work with and was the most affordable option out of the handful of wedding planners that I reached out to in North Georgia. Not to mention she had to travel almost 1.5 hours to the venue and even STAYED THE NIGHT between my rehearsal and wedding day!! Since I was planning my Georgia wedding from Texas, I had to choose a lot of my vendors and services based on reviews. Kari and Everlasting Elegance lived up to their reputation. Kari took over my wedding rehearsal when it appeared the church coordinator was extremely overwhelmed and disorganized. I knew as soon as Kari stepped in that all of my worries and things I wanted would be taken care of that moment. I met with Kari twice prior to my wedding day and she was extremely helpful and put my mind at ease. After the rehearsal, Kari stuck around to ensure that the florist cordoned off the pews with lace (because of COVID). This was something she didn't have to do but did it anyways without my knowledge and without anyone even asking her to do it! On the day of the wedding, there were a few things that were missing like the flower crown for the flower girl, my husband's brother who couldn't find his bow tie and vest, and the fact that I left my fur shawl at the church during my outdoor portraits. Kari handled all of these little hiccups with ease and again without my even knowing any of it. I'm sure there were so many more little things that she took care of that I'm not even aware of to this day. Kari was overly prepared and organized with multiple bags of little emergency kits filled with things that a bride or groom might need. For example, I had forgotten to shave my armpits and put on deodorant the morning of my wedding and Kari had everything I needed to take care of that within a moment's notice. She also had makeup remover wipes for the little spots on my dress and literally everything else you can imagine! Kari also ensured that everything I wanted to be set up at the reception was exactly where I wanted it. Kari and her team truly went above and beyond. I would HIGHLY recommend Everlasting Elegance for any event. They are a must! ❤️😊

Beyond Amazing

I honestly don't know where to begin in regard to thanking Kari. She was so professional, genuine, and sincere the entire time. She helped me to align all of the wedding vendors in less than 2 weeks. Every person she recommended was amazing too. I felt so at ease worth Kari at the reigns of my wedding. I highly highly recommend her. She thought of so many details I wouldn't have considered. If you are considering a wedding planner get one but most importantly hire Kari!!!

One of the best decisions you’ll make for yourself - hire Kari and EEE!

Kari and her team are amazing! We could not have done it without her. Not only was she our month of coordinator, she was also an advocate and trusted resource for us throughout our planning process. Our venue did not communicate rules about rehearsal time, load in, rain plan, and more, but Kari did not let that cause a hiccup for us in our plans. She pushed back on vendors on our behalf when necessary. We last minute had to pivot to our rain plan, and Kari adapted our vision and plans flawlessly with zero stress on us, the bride and groom. She handled set up the day of with minor assistance from our families, which was super helpful as we didn’t hire a florist or event designer. Kari was always accessible and quick to respond. I also appreciated that Kari gave her honest opinion when asked, because I needed a neutral expert many times. I would 12/10 recommend Kari and Everlasting Elegance Events to a friend - it was one of our best decisions throughout the planning process!

Hi! I'm Kari Gibbons, Owner of Everlasting Elegance. I graduated the University of Georgia in 2015 with a degree in Public Relations. I was always drawn to the event planning side of public relations, and upon graduation primarily worked executing corporate events and marketing. In 2017, I married the love of my life, and unlike many brides I LOVED planning my wedding. In fact, it inspired me to completely change career paths. For the last couple years I've worked with a collection of venues in the Metro Atlanta area, gaining invaluable experience. I can't wait to bring my passion and expertise to your wedding!
