    The best decision I made in my wedding planning was hiring Alegria from Gala Events. She played so many roles flawlessly- my coordinator, my therapist, my organizer, my officiant! She is not only one of the kindest people I’ve met, she’s a true professional who goes above and beyond in making your day special. Thank you Alegria!!!

    Thank you so much Melissa. From our very first conversation, we had an instant connection, and I was honored to facilitate your marriage process over these last months. In fact, I've even been a bit sad at getting to the end of our work together... a true testament to just how much I adored you and your vision. I'm looking forward to our final wedding-related call this afternoon, and I do hope that our friendship continues in the coming years. It truly was a pleasure to be of service.

    Having Alegria officiate our wedding was truly a blessing! My now husband and I actually almost chose another officiant until we met and talked with Alegria at the River Lodge Wedding show. She was sharing a table with another vendor and we were actually focused on that vendor until we heard Alegria speaking to another couple about also being an officiant in addition to a wedding planner. Her smile and calm inviting demeanor drew us in and as soon as we were done speaking with her, we knew we wanted her to marry us. Her genuine and glowing personality really shone through in those few minutes and in every interaction with her thereafter! Her warm and loving aura just exude through her words and actions. The emphasis and meaning she put into every word of our ceremony made everything that much more special to us and to our guests. We had people come up and ask us if Alegria was a close family friend because of the way she was so enchanting and radiating such happiness for us while she was performing the ceremony. We don’t think anyone could have done it better! Thank you, Alegria for being such a professional, amazing, serene presence on our special day!

    I chose the "Elopement" package which was perfect for Andrew and I. Since I do live pretty far from her, Alegria and I met over the phone and it felt like I was talking to someone I've known for years. She was very thorough and gave me immediate answers when I had questions. When we finally met in person it was in the forest and we hiked to our location where Andrew and I were married by her. I couldn't be more happier that I found someone so special and had her apart of our day. She will always be someone I will speak highly of and absolutely would recommended to my family and friends.

    I was EXTREMELY impressed by the amazing job you did last week with Brianne and Joe's wedding! From the organization and attention to details to the personalized ceremony and service you provided the couple - your professionalism and personality shined! I truly hope we can work together more often, and I've added you to my list of preferred vendors on my website in hope that more of my clients will give you a call.

    Alegria was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was super easy going but still very organized and on top of everything. She came up with lots of creative ideas that really made our shared wedding a spectacular event and a joy to photograph. I can't recommend Alegria enough!
