    Couldn’t have done it without GGE!

    GGE was one of the best decisions I could’ve made! Every team member I worked with was supportive, flexible, understanding and willing to work with me on whatever I was requesting. I hired the team for month of coordination after planning my entire wedding, and it was so helpful and relieving to have a team I could trust to execute on my plan! I started speaking with them regularly about 2 months out, and they created an extremely extensive timeline that was shared with all of my vendors to ensure everything went smoothly. And it did! I even had a day of (literally 30 minutes before) last minute switch of my ceremony and cocktail hour to allow my ceremony more time to be outside given all day rain and it worked out!! This was in large part due to the flexibility of GGE and close coordination with the venue to make this happen!

    Virtual wedding with heart

    We had a great experience from concept to execution of our virtual wedding. As recent transplants to the area we did not know any vendors but were quickly supplied with quality options based on our needs. It was easy to communicate and align our expectations with our wedding planner. In the end our family and friends enjoyed every moment and complimented that while our wedding was virtual it was as if they were in the room with us.

    Greater Good Events's reply:

    Hector, we loved working with you two! Thank you so much for your kind words, we had such a great time "seeing" your friends and family and the love you two share! Congrats again :)

    A must have!

    We could not recommend Greater Good Events more. Both Ellen and Rachael were easy and wonderful to work with. From the moment with met Ellen we knew she would be perfect to assist us with our month of coordinator. We could not have imagined our day without them
