A pleasure to work with!
Our venue required that we have a coordinator and, having run multiple large events in the past, I was skeptical of the value. I could not have been more wrong. Working with Gwen was an absolute pleasure. At each stage of our big day she went above and beyond to ensure that my husband and I were in our bubble. She handled each issue as it arose and without disrupting our day. Planning from California, we had so many questions throughout the process about vendors in Maine. Gwen was so helpful in connecting us with people in our network to help us plan the day of our dreams. I have nothing but positive things to say about Gwen. She made our vision come true and helped ensure we had an absolutely perfect wedding. I would 100% recommend her to any bride.Sent on 09/02/2019

Out of State Planning Perfection
Gwen worked with me for a year from Texas to create the perfect vow renewal ceremony. Being from out of state, I knew I would need an expert to locate the best lodging, flowers, hair/makeup, dining, photographer and experiences within our budget. That's exactly what Gwen did. Our budget was small, as it was just the two of us escaping for a 10 year recommitment celebration, but Gwen managed to create a luxury experience for us, and she added details and personal touches I didn't know to ask for (such as her husband's grandparents' wedding napkins for our cake table, and a much less expensive, but much more private and more perfect wedding venue than what we were thinking). One of my favorite touches was the inn we stayed at. I fell in love with it instantly and knew if we had driven by and weren't staying staying there, I would have been upset! How Gwen knew that, I have no idea! My picky other half also liked it. He doesn't like BnBs where everyone eats at the same table, and the Norumbega provided the privacy during breakfast he likes (it was also delicious). I told Gwen that info and she found the perfect place. Our photos are gorgeous, our cake was so yummy, our officiant felt like she knew us for years! And Gwen found all these vendors for us. After our ceremony I would text her for recommendations on restaurants and she would respond immediately. You can't go wrong here! We would do it again and again!Sent on 06/27/2019

Gwen was amazing to work with!
Hiring Gwen was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. From the first phone call, I could tell she was going to be our planner. She asked questions about our story, our lives, and our wedding vision (which surprisingly many of the other planners didn't bother to ask). She and her assistant ensured our day was the best day of our lives, and it truly was. She created detailed timelines for the vendors, MOH, and Best Man which kept everyone on the same page and eliminated unnecessary questions. During the rehearsal she had our family and friends surround us in a "circle of love" which was so special. She instructed any and ALL questions/issues the entire day of our wedding to go directly to her, allowing my husband and I to relax and take our special day in.Sent on 10/29/2018
