    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!

    John Gandy Events

    The John Gandy Event team went above and beyond for our wedding. Everyone that we were in contact with though-out the planning process were so kind and patient. The design and layout of our venue was absolutely beautiful and everything we could ever imagine. Our wedding day came together seamlessly!

    The Best Planner in The WORLD

    There are not enough words to describe how incredible our Wedding Day was in Lucerne, Switzerland because of John Gandy and his team. It is hard for me to even begin to write something that would come close to showing how appreciative we are that we had John as our Wedding Planner. When we knew we wanted to have an intimate Wedding across the World with our closest family and friends, we knew that John was the only one that could even come close to making our dreams come true. John did not just make them come true, he went beyond and gave us more than we could have ever wished for. John flew to Switzerland numerous times for site visits and meetings with our vendors. He scheduled every meeting and took care of every tiny detail. I never once worried about one thing. It was so important for us to spend quality time with the people we loved in a country that we love, and because of John, we got to do that with such ease and enjoyment. Beyond making our day so special, I can not even explain how exceptionally beautiful it was. It was more than I could have ever imagined. I truly felt like royalty because I could not believe that this was real life, and that I was so lucky to have the best Planner in the industry create this spectacular day for me and my groom. I still get emotional when I think about everything he and his team did for us just to make our day so wonderful. I can not express to all of the brides out there that John Gandy does not just plan your wedding, he makes all of your dreams come true. We will forever be indebted to him for everything he did for us. Because of John, I got to marry the man of my dreams and genuinely enjoy every minute of our special day. We watch our Wedding video back and we get to see and remember all of the love John poured into our special day. Thank you John for giving us the Wedding of a lifetime. We are forever grateful!

    It’s all in the details!

    The John Gandy Events team is absolutely incredible! I am so happy that we hired them to create such a perfect day for me and my now husband. Everything leading up to our wedding day was just so seamless and easy. Never would I have thought wedding planning could be this way! Emily, our coordinator, maintained constant and open communication regarding our day and ensured that all details were secured and taken care of. Even up until the day before, she had everything under control... even with incoming rain for our outdoor ceremony! While we hoped to be outdoors as we had envisioned, Emily and Janice developed an equally gorgeous indoor option for us to escape the rain. However while the weather did not look to be in our favor, the JGE team made it happen! They orchestrated for our guests to have some time for entertainment by our musicians and some mixing and mingling in the lobby of our venue. It was perfect because during this time, guests were able to appreciate the beautiful decor that had been specially curated for our day from the JGE furniture collection. Every detail in regards to decor was absolutely gorgeous. The John Gandy Team fully understood what was envisioned for our day and made it even better than we ever could have imagined! Our day was truly perfect thanks to the JGE team!

    Mother of the Groom

    We hired John Gandy and his team to plan our son’s and future daughter in law’s wedding (Donofro/Miller wedding) and reception at the Goodwood Museum and Gardens in Tallahassee. This is by far the best investment we made for this occasion. John Gandy and the John Gandy team are phenomenal! Their attention to detail is unbelievable, too! They make everything easy and stress free. We secured them a year prior to the wedding and spoke to so many others that have used their services and not one negative review or remark... If you are planning a wedding, do yourself a favor and hire John Gandy!! Many thanks to John and his team for making our wedding amazing! It was the most beautiful wedding and reception I have ever seen!

    So amazing, wish I could do it again!

    One of my bridesmaids told me after the wedding that the JGE staff treated her as if she was getting married. She stated that all JGE's staff were professional, attentive, and genuinely nice. Even as the person getting married, I never felt that I was missing out and my needs were not being taken care of. To hear that this was the experience of my family and friends as well, is very heartwarming. If I had to choose, I will pick JGE over and over again. They took our vision and made it something special. Everyone that attended the wedding or has seen pictures compliments on how beautiful and structured the wedding was.

    We are so grateful for John Gandy and his team! Every little detail was taken care of throughout the entire planning process, and on our wedding day. The decor was stunning, and fit my vision perfectly. John and his team made sure our day was everything we could have imagined!

    John Gandy Events

    I would recommend the John Gandy Events team to a friend, or even to an enemy. The JGE team gave me and my family peace of mind that our big day would go off without a hitch. We didn't have to sweat the small stuff, or the big stuff. Not only does John Gandy Events create the best looking weddings, they create and help facilitate events that are meaningful and enjoyable. There are so many reasons to hire this team, and we are so glad we did!

    Do yourself a favor, go with John Gandy!

    Our wedding was no easy task-- we got married in a small town 2 hours outside of Tallahassee with very little options for venues or vendors. On top of that, a category 5 hurricane hit the exact place the wedding was supposed to be just 5 months before. Having John Gandy as our wedding planner though, you wouldn't know that anything ever went wrong. Not only did he redesign and relocate both our ceremony and our reception, he did it with such ease. When a problem came up, he had a solution. If I had a concern, he addressed it and fixed it. Not to mention he turned an old boring building into something absolutely spectacular for our reception. People who have lived in that town for years and have had many many events in our reception building said they have never seen it transformed the way John and his team transformed it. I had a vision for what the wedding would look like and John and his team gave me something even greater than I could have ever imagined. John and his staff were also very prompt in replying to emails, phone calls, texts, etc. I never once had to worry about a thing during the entire planning process.
    The day of also went absolutely flawlessly. John's onsite team were the most professional, organized, and wonderful people to be with on the day of the wedding. If I needed something, it was like they were already one step ahead of me with whatever was needed in hand. There were also times they did things for me, my husband, and our bridal party that we didn't even know we needed! With how nerve-racking the day of your wedding can be, the onsite team were so calm and helped me and my husband remain calm as well.
    I could not recommend John and his team more! They will give you the wedding of your dreams....and then some! :)

    Mother of the Bride

    We were so pleased in working with everyone of John Gandy Events!

It's amazing how they work to make a vision become a reality !!! Their creative talents and ease of working with

    5 stars/perfect/amazing

    Prior to the big day, John and his team were always quick to respond to any question/concern that I had. I felt like I was involved with the process, without being overwhelmed. The entire timeline prior to the wedding day was a breeze. As far as the big day goes, John Gandy Events made sure my day was PERFECT, even when the rain was pouring down and the power went out. I will forever be grateful to John and his team. 5 stars and could not recommend anymore. Worth every penny!

    John Gandy and his team of angels made our wedding planning so easy. Our wedding was absolutely perfect - exactly all things my daughter dreamed of.

    Simply the best!

    No amount of time or words could adequately describe our experience with John Gandy Events. From the moment we found this excellent team, they went above and beyond the call of duty. As a bride, it is very easy to get anxious or flustered with the both the minute and major events of a wedding; however, John Gandy and his team were professional, PATIENT, and used their superior expertise in all things wedding to calm every one of my nerves. Just by talking to him and his team you feel a sense of calm and peace wash over you, which is an incredible thing to say given the intensity of the game. His wonderfully staffed team of experts were always available to answer any question I had, and if they didn’t have an immediate answer, one was quickly given to me within 24 hours of me asking. One of the most wonderful things about John Gandy Events is their vast knowledge of every little detail that makes a wedding beautiful and spectacular. Things that I didn’t even know were of relevance were on every one of his checklists, and even if I wasn’t organized, he made sure (in a professional and patient manner) to help me with every single item. They held our hand every single step of the way, from engagement to our wedding send off, and made sure that we had everything we ever wanted. Every bride and groom should feel like their wedding day is completely relaxed, beautiful, and without problem, and if you go with John Gandy Events, that’s exactly what you’ll get. My husband and I simply do not have enough wonderful things to say about John and his team. We both know for a fact that because of him, we had the absolute best day of our lives. John Gandy and his team are thought of as the best in the Southeast, and now we know without a doubt that this could not be truer. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

    Beyond amazing

    I think everyone starts out their wedding plans thinking do I really need a planner? Brides you need John Gandy' team. No exceptions! My wedding was not stressful at all. I enjoyed every minute of it because I didn't have anything to stress about. I can't thank them enough for making our wedding best the best day.

    You need John Gandy Events in your life!

    Where to even begin? If you are looking for a wedding planner in the Tallahassee area or basically anywhere since they have events all over, book John Gandy Events ASAP! The one aspect of the wedding that I knew I needed to book before anything else, was JGE. After meeting with John, my parents and I had no question of who we needed to plan my wedding. John and his team are the epitome of professional. No longer living in the area, each trip to Tallahassee for wedding planning was so efficiently planned by JGE. In one trip I was able to visit the team and look through their MASSIVE warehouse of decorations and furniture, discuss any and every detail, and they even had an assortment of wedding cakes from various vendors for me to try. Planning a wedding from afar would have been exponentially more stressful if I didn’t have JGE! The John Gandy Events team thinks of everything, and truly is what every bride needs in her life. One huge advantage to working with JGE, they know and have worked with every vendor in the area. They know the ins and outs of event planning and it obvious you are getting the best by working with them!
    Seeing John Gandy and his extraordinary team on the day of the wedding put me at such ease! No matter what situation was going to occur that day, I knew without hesitation that they would handle it and I would never need to know about it. They created and executed my vision perfectly and I cannot recommend them enough!!

    Professional and Caring

    John Gandy and his team are fantastic! The planning phase was a breeze, and the day of my wedding was stress free. Shout out to Janice for being a SAINT. She was extremely helpful and knew exactly what I needed without me asking.

    I couldn't have asked for a more professional and caring team. Everything was so perfect. I would highly recommend John Gandy Events to anyone who is getting married or planning an event of any size. You will not be disappointed.

    The best in the biz!

    THE BEST IN THE BIZ! There was simply no other choice for me when it came to planning my wedding. They exceeded my every expectation and worked extremely hard to bring the wedding of my dreams to life. My guests and family raved about the level of service and excellence provided throughout the planning process and on the wedding day. 10/10 would recommend!
