The best coordinators ever!

Rachel and the GPE team were astounding to work with! We chose the wedding coordination package with Rachel taking over 60 days prior to our wedding and I cannot begin to describe Rachel’s impact on our planning process. She went above and beyond in ensuring we were as stress free as possible for our big day, offered to pick up vendor rentals herself, and provided insightful and thoughtful recommendations for our wedding. When our big day finally came, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. During the planning process, we were told by so many people that things were bound to go wrong on the day of the wedding and not to sweat it. But we can’t think of a single thing that went wrong! If something did go wrong we never knew about it because that is just how amazing Rachel and her team were. We were able to enjoy one of the most special days of our life without worrying about anything other than partying it up with our friends and family. We’re just blown away with how organized everyone at GPE was. We’re honestly even a little sad to no longer be working with them anymore even though our wedding has since passed! If you’re looking for a team with excellent communication, organization, and who will absolutely make you feel like you’re their sole clients (even though I know they’re swamped!), then we wholeheartedly recommend GPE and would choose them again in a heartbeat!

The MOST AMAZING planner you'll find!!!

If you are still searching for the perfect wedding planner, look no further! GPE and team was amazing from start to finish!!! I actually found them on Tiktok while searching for "spooky halloween wedding". Once I found one of their reels, my search was over! My husband and I opted for 60-day coordination service and we were not disappointed! We even hired their sister company, Pilar Florals, do our florals. Right at the 60-day mark, Rachel hopped on a call with us and sat through our entire vision. We wanted to have a Halloween wedding that was not just elegant but was an ode to our favorite horror films. Rachel and team didn't shy away from this and loved the idea (even with our idea of wearing Beetlejuice masks at some point during the reception)! Rachel kept us on top of everything we needed using their awesome database. As a very organized person myself, I truly appreciated the attention-to-detail, checklists, and input from Rachel. I never once felt stressed! When the actual weekend arrived, Rachel was so generous to take ALL of my Halloween décor/details at our Rehearsal to make sure it was used throughout the venue. When I tell you I had an Inventory checklist that may make some planners get horrified, Rachel was SO SO AMAZING about it all! Our wedding went so smoothly too. Rachel's team was there from when my girls and I were getting ready all the way through the end. She made sure all vendors were staying on top of our timeline and grabbed us whenever she needed us throughout the day. I cannot emphasize enough how GPE was the best decision we made for our wedding! I will forever cherish my wedding weekend and it wouldn't have at all been possible without Rachel!!! Thank you so so much from the bottom of our hearts! Love, Olivia & Taylor KRATZ

If you don't choose GPE for your wedding, you're making a mistake!!!

My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Rachel and the GPE team. Thinking of planning a wedding all on my own felt entirely overwhelming, but it actually became enjoyable once we started working with Rachel. Rachel is kind, fun, and approachable, and is able to strike a great balance between giving couples advice and suggestions (as she is the subject matter expert) while also ensuring that the couple's vision comes to life. So many of our wedding guests went out of their way to tell us that our wedding was the smoothest, best run wedding they had ever been to, and that is a complete testament to Rachel and the entire GPE team's planning and experience. On the day of our wedding, I never once felt overwhelmed by the schedule of events and was able to be present and enjoy the day without worrying about if everything was running smoothly. I could write a 500 paragraph review singing Rachel and the GPE team's praises, but in short, if you are looking for a wedding planning team and don't use GPE, you're making a HUGE mistake.
