Carmillia + Steven were married at GranDale Manor on a warm June Saturday. So much thought was put into the design and the guests' experience. Carmillia wanted to keep the interior of the Manor open for guests to be able to enjoy the beauty of the home and grab another drink from the bar.
Art Pancake Party Rentals brought in a tent and dance floor for the backyard for the party to go down and their DJ Johny Mezcla did not disappoint! Both Carmillia + Steven are of hispanic origin and I adored learning about their traditions and customs and even their fun party music!

How cute are these favors that were made by a friend and Carmillia??

These bridesmaids and their dresses were so beautiful!

Carmillia's Review: "Emily is unbeatable in event planning. The attention to detail and care they give are spectacular. On the day of my wedding, I was completely relaxed knowing that everything was under control. A stress-free day! They also took extra steps in design for small things I hadn't thought about. They even moved some lawn furniture at the venue to group it in a more attractive way! If I need assistance with planning an event in the future, I know where to go. In short, I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you, Emily and the entire As We Gather team, for making our special day unforgettable."

A wedding on a Monday? What a great idea! Ashley came to visit the venue I worked at called GranDale Manor and we worked out the perfect wedding day for her and Alex...on a Monday!
It was such a sweet day and such a dance party! She incorporated the color yellow not only into her floral and decor but also the sash and tulle slip of her dress.
I am so thankful to Ashley + Alex for trusting me as
my first wedding under my newly established company!
Ashley's Review: "Emily made my wedding amazing! She is a kind and bubbly person and presents herself while coordinating as a perfect and kind lady! She really went above and beyond and was available and affordable. The DJ and bartender she suggested were perfect! If you need a great person to put your wedding together (and you do, I couldn't imagine doing that by myself, holy cow) get with As We Gather. :)"
