    Run, Don't Walk, to John Gandy Events

    If you have an event like our daughter's recent wedding, you should run--not walk--to John Gandy Events. Highly professional in every respect. They have an incredible selection of everything you could conceivably need and a team that can and will do it all. And beyond all else, they were genuinely concerned that our only focus was to take in and enjoy every moment of this wonderful life event. When the inevitable curve ball happened during the evening (and they do happen), they reacted quickly and effectively so that we never missed a beat. We can't say enough good things about John Gandy and his entire team.

    Amazing Event Planner!

    John Gandy Events planned and coordinated our daughter's wedding. He helped us create an absolutely perfect day! We truly could not have asked for anything better. John is extremely communicative. Every email, phone call and text was answered almost immediately. He was extremely patient with our many questions. The ceremony and reception site were both filled with many intricate details that helped to make it feel unique and personal to our family. His warehouse is filled with any type of decor you can imagine. He made it possible for us just to be in the moment the day of the wedding and enjoy it. I cannot recommend him enough.

    I can't imagine planning a wedding without John Gandy Events! The are the BEST!

    I cannot say enough good things about John Gandy Events. From day one until the end of the wedding day, they were phenomenal. They made our whole wedding experience so easy and we were able to enjoy the entire day without having to worry about a thing. John and his team are the sweetest people and the easiest to work with. They always responded quickly if we had a question and were always available to meet with us if we wanted to meet with them. They offered suggestions when asked about which vendors to use and every vender we used that they recommended did an awesome job. I can't imagine planning a wedding without them. I will recommend them to anyone I know who has a daughter getting married. I will truly miss them and have told them not to be surprised if I just show up to visit them. They are truly the BEST!

    John Gandy is the Vincent Van Gogh of event planning. Mr. Gandy seemingly effortlessly creates beautiful masterpieces that will never be forgotten.

    I cannot imagine a more professional, warm, and brilliant day-of coordinator than Emily Pozzuoli. She was perfect. Someday soon, her name will inspire the same awe and respect as "John Gandy."

    Every vendor that JGE vetted and recommended was perfect.

    The entire wedding was flawless.

    I strongly urge you to choose JGE and request Emily Pozzuoli as your day-of coordinator.

    Five Star Experience

    Wow, I cannot thank JGE enough for everything. They did an incredible job of making me feel like a star on my big day. Every detail was incredible. From start to finish, they made sure to ask me and my fiance what we wanted and they fulfilled every request. They were always punctual in their responses and when my mom was stressing about something, she was able to call the JGE team and they were able to resolve those worries so easily and with care. They really listened to our concerns and made sure that we felt listened to.
    Additionally, they were very friendly, professional people and easy to talk to.
    One incredible piece to our event was Emily Pozzouli. She was one of our main contacts at JGE and was our day-of coordinator. What an incredible person. She was so organized and professional and just a kind spirit. She made everything run so smoothly that I had the most incredible time at my own wedding. She made sure to get me anything I needed. And there was a really incredible lady named Janice who was at my every beck and call on my wedding day. She came to me and said, let me know if there is anything that you need and she was always there to assist in whatever I needed.
    Also, the decorations were phenomenal. JGE has a huuge warehouse full of decor that is included with your contract and they will walk you through it to let you pick out anything that you want at your event. And let me tell you, they have STYLE. Whatever style you want, they have it. And when they put it all together, it is truly incredible.
    Another thing is that they are so experienced and knowledgeable. They’ve been in business a looong time (or maybe it just seems like it because they’re so good!) and have such a vast knowledge about weddings, vendors, and events in general. If you are iffy about the price, let me tell you my mom and my new husband and I can tell you that it was worth every penny, seriously. We would not have done it any other way and were so glad we went with JGE.
    Another detail is that they have so many connections and got us an incredible rate on our hotel blocks and boy was that a steal! The rooms were almost half the price at the nicest hotels in town. And they worked closely with all of our vendors and made Sure that everyone was always on the same page.
    When something went wrong, they worked their butts off to remedy it as quickly as possible. One major thing was when our original venue was shut down due to issues with commercial building codes. We had already secured this venue 6 months before. Before we even found out about our venue, JGE was in the know and John called my mom to get a new venue for us. Because of this insider knowledge and their effort and professionalism, we were able to secure a new venue in two days. What a relief. Team JGE takes on challenges head on and gets results. If any kind of weather/rain was going to happen, they let us know that they would move everything for us indoors and make it beautiful.
    I seriously cannot thank them enough for making our day so freaking incredible. Thank you John, Emily, Janice, and Caylin. What a magical weekend.

    Pure Perfection

    Spectacular, beautiful, stunning, amazing.....just a few of the comments from our family and friends about our wedding put on by John Gandy Events. I honestly wish I could give them more than five stars. Our wedding day was pure perfection thanks to Team JGE. The first time I met with John Gandy about our wedding he said "all you will have to do on your wedding day is show up" and he was not wrong. The vendor recommendations provided by John Gandy Events helped us create an amazing team of people who helped us create our perfect day. I know I would not have been able to come up with such a perfect list of vendors without the help of John Gandy Events. And when I would speak to different vendors and told them I was working with John Gandy the response was always, "great....his team is the best!" Team JGE made the whole wedding planning process seamless and I could not have asked for a better experience. I wanted the grooms cake to be a surprise from my now husband and JGE took my idea and took it one step further and made the whole presentation of the grooms cake spectacular and very special for my husband. His friends cannot stop talking about it. That is just one of the extra touches that made our day so special. I felt like our wedding came right out of the pictures in a magazine because of John Gandy Events. Many of our friends have said it was the best wedding they ever attended. Hiring John Gandy Events was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. They were not only amazing to work with but also just a really fun group of people. Hire them. You will not regret it.

    They are nothing short of the best!

    If you are getting married, do yourself a favor and go with John Gandy Events!
    Our wedding was a dream come true. The crew at John Gandy Events got to know our tastes and preferences and customized a wedding design that brought it to life spectacularly and matched our personalities. The attention to detail is just incredible. Even as more pictures flood in from our wedding, I am continually impressed by small little details that I didn’t notice during our day. They handled everything so that my wife and I could just relax on our wedding day and enjoy celebrating the special occasion with our family and friends. They helped us every step of the way to make what seemed like a daunting task into something enjoyable. I can’t thank the John Gandy team enough for giving us the most magical wedding!!

    Fabulous and Professional!

    John Gandy and his staff went above and beyond to make my daughter's wedding a beautiful and memorable event for all involved. The wedding date had to be changed twice and JGE made all changes with the vendors and venue immediately and with no problems. Their day of service is impeccable and allows the bride, groom and wedding party to relax and enjoy their special celebration. I would highly recommend JGE!!

    Best of the BEST!

    John and his team are the BEST! We lost our original venue 3 months before the wedding. Needless to say my daughter and I were devastated. We were faced with a situation that was beyond our control. John helped us every step of the way and was so helpful. He was accessible to answer all of our questions and ease our fears. The new venue worked out great and the wedding surpassed all of our expectations. Securing John Gandy Events was the best decision I made in this process! Thank you John for your expertise, guidance, and professional service.

    We love john gandy and his team!

    John Gandy and his team were the most important detail of my daughter's wedding day. Each and every member of his team was attentive, kind, understanding, informative, punctual, and of course, creative! The minute we met with him to inquire the use of their services, they took genuine care in the planning of each detail and recommended the perfect vendors for all of our needs.
    The wedding was absolutely stunning and magical. We wouldn't change anything about this day or this process and credit John Gandy and his amazing team for all of their hard work and devotion to the Kelley/Fischer Wedding. When we began this process, we felt an instant friendship and in the end, they all became like family. We love them all!

    Amazing wedding coordinator!

    Working with John and his team was wonderful! They took care of all of the small and big details and made our day truly special. They are pros at what they do and make the whole process effortless! Every time we would start to get overwhelmed with the details, John and his team were there to put as at ease because they had everything under control. I never even worried about a single thing the weekend of, and everything went so smoothly! If there were any issues the day of, I never even knew about them. And, getting to pick out all the decor in the warehouse was awesome. It was amazing to have access to all of the decor, which reduced stress for us when it came time to figure out smaller details! We loved getting to see all the pieces we’d picked out come together on the big day.

    JGE is simply the very best

    There is no way to describe how thankful we are to have had John Gandy and the entire JGE team plan and be a part of our wedding. John and his incredible team of professionals gave us the wedding of our dreams! It was beautiful beyond our wildest expectations. I credit this to their insane attention to detail. They are truly wedding artists and I had so much fun planning every single part of our special day with them. During the planning process they are always available to answer any questions or help out in any way. The day of our wedding was a breeze due to their thoroughness; their team of the kindest people kept us calm, excited and on track the whole day. To all North Florida/Georgia brides and beyond: give yourself an early wedding gift and hire John and the JGE team to give you your dream day. It was the best decision we ever made.

    JGE to the rescue!

    I had to change my wedding venue 7 days before my wedding... this would not have been possible without the JGE team. They made everything as stress free and efficient as possible considering the circumstances! I can’t thank them enough for the beautiful wedding they made possible for us!

    Absolutely, positively amazing!

    John Gandy and his team are the best out there! From the day one, they were on point. No detail was left unturned. Everything was executed exactly as it was supposed to be done. They turned my vision into a beautiful reality. His team was so lovely to work with and was always so easy to communicate with and get in touch with when I had questions or needed answers. During my wedding weekend, I was able to relax and let John Gandy and his team handle everything. It was so wonderful to be able to enjoy my time with my friends and family. People kept telling me I looked so stress-free and calm, and I think a big part of that was because of John Gandy and his team. Thank you, thank you Team John Gandy! You all are AMAZING!
