I cannot begin to describe how AWESOME Brittany from Grit and Grace was to work with to create the most magical wonderful wedding for my daughter. Her creative suggestions, sage advice, vendor contacts, hand-holding and calm in the face of having to find a new ceremony space 7 week before the wedding, and especially, her friendship, made it a pure joy to plan my daughter’s destination wedding. At every stage of the process, Brittany was our right-hand, left-hand, and everything in between! We had contemplated not bothering with a wedding planner since my daughter had already arranged for the “big” things, but now, with experience, I know that it is in the “little” details that a truly fabulous wedding is created. We would never have been able to fulfill my daughter’s wedding vision without Brittany. Her experience, friendly professionalism, and creative responsiveness helped produce in actuality the most amazingly beautiful and fun wedding, beyond all expectations, for my daughter and her husband, and all our guests. I cannot begin to thank Brittany (and the entire Grit and Grace team) for helping to create the magic. I am so extremely grateful we found Brittany at Grit and Grace - you are beyond the best!!!

Laura was awesome to work with! She was very responsive, provided candid feedback, and put together a beautiful wedding for us. She is creative, understood our vision and ensured we were able to include all we wanted on our wedding day. She has a knack for picking up on your distinct taste. She also made the day-of seamless and worry-free. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner! She is truly the best!

These ladies are amazing!!! They each have a unique style and they work together to make your wedding AMAZING! No matter what your budget is they make sure that you have everything you need to make your day memorable, unique, and beautiful. If you want a traditional, Gatsby, glamorous, or themed wedding they can pull it together for you. I always feel like I am the only bride they are working with because they are so responsive and are always there when I need them. Planning a wedding is very stressful but with Events in the City you have a team that stands behind you which helps you take a step back and breath because you know your not alone. I tell everyone about Events in the City and how my experience so far has been more then I could have ever imagined!!! These ladies ROCK!!!
