About Graceful Beginnings, LLC

My name is Gaye Choat and I own Graceful Beginnings Wedding Planning. I live in Florence, Alabama, but am available to travel to your wedding. I offer wedding planning services for ceremonies, receptions, and rehearsal dinners. I am also a Certified Sandals Specialist and can help you plan your honeymoon or destination wedding to any Sandals resort in the Caribbean.

Graceful Beginnings is a family business. Our mission is to provide a relaxed planning experience so we can create the wedding day of your dreams. We want you to be able to enjoy your wedding instead of worrying about the details.

One misconception about wedding planners is that we want to take over all the planning. I don't want to do that, unless you want me to. I will never forget the memories of my daughter and I during her wedding planning process and I don't want to take that away from you. Wouldn't it be nice to have a professional to bounce ideas off of, take care of the details, make sure you haven't forgotten anything, and help the day run smoothly?

Our Services:
Graceful Beginnings has planned different types of weddings such as civil, military, religious, destination and non-religious. We offer:

  • Full Service Planning
  • Wedding Month Planning (aka Day Of Planning)
  • Setup/Take Down Service
  • Invitation Service
  • Rentals
  • Sandals honeymoon/wedding
