They say when you are planning a wedding, to expect something to go wrong. That may be true for most, but if you have Jevettra on your team you can bank on your wedding being a picture of perfection! Working with Avila Dawn Events was the best decision we made during our wedding planning process. From our very first conversation, I knew she was someone that I could trust with our most important day...and she didn't disappoint. To simply say that she is an exceptional designer doesn’t quite capture her talent and skills. Not only did she bring to life the wedding of our dreams, she captured our vision (and more) with beauty, creativity, and style. She is the epitome of professionalism and was AMAZING to work with every step of the way. We will forever be grateful for her work.Sent on 04/21/2019

Our wedding planning was a great experience. We had a detailed schedule and they did a great job of keeping us on track and giving us advice about the problems they usually encounter. The wedding and reception went off without a hitch and we were able to just enjoy the experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that is looking for a professional and detail-oriented experience.Sent on 12/10/2018

Best Decision We Made
Hiring Jevettra Gardner of Avila Dawn Events as our wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made. With everything going on in our lives at the time we would have lost our minds if we would have went any other route when planning our wedding. Jevettra had the ability and expertise to help us bring to life the wedding that we envisioned. She was always accessible, flexible and overly willing to do whatever was needed to make our special day perfect.Sent on 11/01/2018
Jevettra is well connected in her industry and have a passion for what she does. She isn’t a “Drill Sergeant” type of planner, she is very approachable with a kindred personality. I highly recommend her to any couple planning their wedding; with Jevettra leading your wedding I’m confident it will be a success.

Let me just start by saying...Jevettra is AMAZING! My husband and I never had a wedding, so we decided to dive into having our dream wedding on our 6th wedding anniversary. She went above and beyond my expectations and I couldn’t be happier to have used her services. I started out with somewhat of a sketch of what I thought I wanted and Jevettra’s expertise pinpointed the vision and brought the details to fruition!Sent on 10/04/2018
Whether you need a little guidance or want to be completely hands off, Jevettra is definitely your girl. Her vendor recommendations were stellar and her personal knack for design and creating an experience for the guests is breathtaking. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and willingness to do ANYTHING it takes to make sure your special day flows smoothly without a hitch is unmatched. Thank you Avila Dawn Events for granting me the wedding of my dreams! ❤️Evan J.

Our wedding experience with Avila Dawn events was fantastic. We live in Orlando, FL and got married in Columbia, SC so we desperately needed some assistance through the planning and design process. Jevettra Gardner was a true professional from beginning to end and we could not have been more happy with the end result. Our wedding went off without a hitch and no last minute stressful surprises. I would certainly recommend using their services to friends and family and especially if you are out of town. All of the vendors that were recommended from Florists, Catering, DJ, Cake, etc. where outstanding and really made our big day special. I can honestly say that our wedding day was perfect and something that we will never forget. This was money very well spent.Sent on 06/01/2017

Avila Dawn Events is hands-down the BEST!!! Jevettra was incredibily easy to work with and always responded promptly to any questions we had. They were able to take our vision and our personalities into account when designing our wedding and the results were even more beautiful and special than we anticipated! They were very professional, detail-oriented and budget-conscious; always one step ahead of our questions, and offered up amazing ideas and suggestions to make the event unique.

Thanks to Jevettra and her team, we have had outstanding cotillion celebrations! She is a poised and professional choreographer, and added so much grace and class to our event. Our debutantes and parents loved her just as much as we do too. Thanks Jevettra!Sent on 12/24/2014

Jevettra planned the sweetest and most beautiful wedding for us. We had a strict budget and she was able to pull it off under budget and and on short notice! She helped me focus on what was important and provided unique ideas to make the day extra special. Her attention to detail, energy and creativity are apparent at all stages from planning, to execution, to after the big day. She is brilliant.Sent on 05/28/2014

Your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life and planning can be very stressful....unless....you have the pleasure of working with Avila Dawn Events. Everything was completely organized. Each deadline that was set was met. Most of all wanting to make sure every idea we had for our special day come to light was their priority. Being able to soak up each moment of my wedding day without a care in the world was something I will always cherish. The beauty of the sanctuary and reception hall when the doors opened for us to enter will be embedded in my memory forever. They are professional, caring and so fun to work with. If you are planning any event and want 100% satisfaction you may want to contact Avila Dawn Events.Sent on 12/05/2014

Great planner. Jevettra and her company can assist any bride and groom from any location. Avila Dawn Events is located in South Carolina and my wedding was in Miami. One of the things that I love is the fact that she brings her husband along and he helps to keep the groom and groomsmen together. He keeps them relaxed and happy. My husband really appreciated having someone that was there for them as well. Thank you again Jevettra and Brian!Sent on 07/15/2015
