WOW. What a year! Looking back, I’m truly humbled and beyond blessed to share in these special moments with all of you! I was able to throw a baby shower in the Philippines for my best friend and officiate my first wedding for my other best friends! My first Indian wedding was AMAZING!! And many, many more. To say my heart is full is an understatement. My career provides a backstage pass to view the purest forms of love and true celebration, from start to finish. There may be... stress along the way, and almost always tears, but the end result is always LOVE, smiles, and crazy laughter. To all of my clients, who are also my friends, I am eternally grateful to you for trusting me with your life’s greatest moments. And to Ryan Gosling, call me for your next shindig, I got you boo...boyfriend discount 😉 Cheers to an even better 2018! Happy New Year friends!! ❤️ #galasbygerry

My wife and I had a lot of fun during the 12 months leading up to the wedding and co-creating our vision for the ceremony and reception. There were many more enjoyable moments than otherwise, but sti...ll some that became stressful. This is where the comfort of having a confident and hardworking Wedding Planner made all the difference.

The questions Gerry guided us through at each stage, ensured that we were being creative about the ways this day could uniquely symbolize our life-long relationship for all our sets of (crazy) friends and (crazy) family.

Gerry effectively prioritized which wedding planning categories we should focus on further in advance, and which could wait until later. This led to my wife and me not feeling overwhelmed.

We did not make things easy on Gerry, but she was up to the challenge in every way. The venue we chose required an exorbitant number of vendors, as it was not capable of handling many of the wedding services (in-house). On top of that, we wanted to get reasonably close to our budget, and that made things a bit more difficult for us to get all our must-haves incorporated in the plan. Gerry remained organized while managing an extensive list of vendor bookings, payments, and reminders. Having over 200 guests makes each of those tasks more time-consuming to coordinate, but that didn't phase Gerry either.

The last shout out I will give to our awesome Wedding Planner, is about her ability to control the temperature. This is something I learned about in graduate school. One of the attributes of an exemplary adaptive leader is to know the appropriate times to 'turn up the heat', and when to 'cool things off'. Integrating all the personalities and requirements of each of the vendor groups required Gerry to do this in a masterful way. She could be as tough and sweet as necessary when necessary.

Future clients will get an incredible amount of value out of this wedding investment and will have a new, fun friend in Gerry.
