    Well Organized and prepared to make your wedding day a success!

    Working with Grey Cardinal events and Allie on Chase & Chelsea's Wedding was a huge success. Allie took the time and helped us with the process for drone authorization at Virginia Tech along with making the day go extremely smooth for all of the wedding party and their vendors. Would highly recommend Grey Cardinal Events for your wedding planning needs!

    Allie Detzler of Grey Cardinal Events - Essential to the nights successful outcome

    I will start by repeating the first words I uttered to the bridal couple (Chase & Chelsea) when referencing Allie Detzler of Grey Cardinal Events…..this was your best investment as it concerns wedding services! Chase & Chelsea replied, “you’re not the first vendor to say that”. She was extremely personable and a pleasure to work with, but more importantly very productive and efficient.

    The reception took place at the Inn at Virginia Tech, but the ceremony was conducted at the VT War Memorial Chapel. She visited the venue on multiple occasions before the wedding and she conducted endless research to facilitate the event for the couple and all the external vendors. She anticipated potential issues like parking for the vendors during the ceremony, so she reserved parking for the relevant parties involved in providing services for the ceremony.

    She provided an extremely detailed timeline for all vendors which would provide a great reference for the timeline, as well as the execution of the events throughout the night.

    Despite her great contribution to the successful outcome of the event, she was still holding herself accountable and challenging herself to learn from unprecedented experiences and to see if she could do anything better during her future events. I would never hesitate to recommend Grey Cardinal Events to anyone.

    My only regret was not hiring Allie SOONER!

    Allie provided partial planning services for us and I cannot even put into words how incredible our experience was with Grey Cardinal Events. My only regret was that I didn't hire Allie as soon as I kicked off wedding planning. If you are anything like us, we started the process very hesitant about making the investment and confident that we could handle the wedding planning process ourselves (all while working two full-time jobs in the middle of COVID-19 *face palm*)... fast forward to three months before the wedding when my fiancé and I were overwhelmed and knew we needed professional help to get us across the finish line. Allie swooped in and provided the much needed guidance and calmness that we needed to finish out our final planning details and coordination with all our vendors.

    Our favorite things:
    -Allie is responsive, thorough, and organized. We had weekly check-in's leading up to our wedding where she laid out our to-do lists - this made our lives so easy and focused
    -Allie is candid and will provide honest feedback on potential vendors to book and decor / pricing / etc. She won't try to up-sell you on unnecessary items and will keep your budget as a top priority
    -Her decor planning and set-up exceeded our expectations. Not only was she able to elicit our vision from conversation and Pinterest boards, Allie also has access to a lot of beautiful wedding decor rentals. she also crafted a balloon arch for our photo backdrop!
    -Allie and her team were quick thinkers and handled issues as discreetly as possible, keeping us as stress free as possible on our wedding day

    I am not exaggerating when I say that my wedding day would not have been the same without Grey Cardinal Events. Multiple of my other vendors even complimented her organization and detail to me in separate conversations. Run, don't walk, to book Allie for your special day!
