I must confess – there is a kind of adrenaline rush, a “planner’s high” that I experience during the course of my events. Ooops, my clients’ events… These are life-defining moments for my clients and I feel a huge amount of responsibility to ensure that everything turns out just right for them. Something magical still happens for me at each wedding – watching the bride walk down the aisle, seeing the look on people’s faces when they enter the dining room and above all, reading the notes that we often get from our clients after it’s all done.
Thank you, Stacy and Chris, for placing your trust in me and my team! Knowing that we exceeded your expectations is truly a “planner’s high” and a defining moment for us.
Stacy and Chris were married on March 16th at Shutters on The Beach. Having traveled from Indiana for their wedding, the couple were greeted by stormy Santa Monica skies. But nothing could dampen the excitement and joy for this couple, and we managed to hold off the rain long enough for their outdoor ceremony.
“I would need a thesaurus to come up with enough words to compliment Wayne Gurnick and his associate, Julia. Apart from their professional services, both of them are an absolute joy. In fact, my guests wanted to include them as guests themselves in order to spend more time with them. Their pleasant demeanor adds to the happy mood of the day. However, lucky for me, Wayne and Julia were there to work. Upon meeting Wayne, I was instantly relieved and confident that our evening would be a success. There were only two little mishaps I can recall, and Wayne dealt with both of them without me even asking him. His familiarity with multiple venues, experience with vendors, and general personality make him a priceless essential for your wedding. I cannot thank him enough for his services as he allowed me to enjoy the day worry-free because of his presence. I have a memory when it came time to walk down the aisle that is similar to a kid learning to ride a bike. Wayne instructed me that he was going to manage the train of my dress by holding it until I rounded the corner and as I began to walk down the straight aisle, he would let it go. I remember seeing my husband at the end and wanting to run down the aisle to get to him because I had not seen him since the previous day. I also remember, like riding a bike, wanting to look behind me to see if Wayne was still there, but I was afraid I would fall. Thank you, Wayne, for what you do and who you are. You were a blessing on my wedding day. –Stacy Cantwell”
