Our mission is to provide a relaxing planning experience so we can create the wedding day of your dreams. Wedding planning can be stressful and whether your wedding is large or small, the same details have to be planned. Let us worry about those details for you.
As a full time wedding planner, I can meet with wedding vendors during the day while you are at work or school. I report back to you so you can decide who you want to be on your wedding team. When your wedding weekend arrives, you can sit back and enjoy the festivities while I work to handle all the details and coordination.
As a Certified Wedding Planner with the Association of Bridal Consultants, I have over 15 years experience. I opened Graceful Beginnings in 2012 as a full time wedding planner and I love it!
I offer Full Service and Month Of Planning. Both planning services include directing the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception.
Gaye Choat is a blessing as a Wedding Planner/Coordinator! My daughter and I couldn't have hoped for anything more for her wedding. Gaye is so well organized and she thinks of all the details. The day of the wedding went so smoothly and I didn't worry about anything because I knew Gaye had everything handled. She really listens to the Bride and wants to know HER vision for her wedding. She is invaluable and really knows her craft. My daughter's wedding was beautiful and we all really enjoyed that day with no worries. I can't say enough about Gaye and Graceful Beginnings. Using Gaye can save you a lot of worry and time. Thank you Graceful Beginnings for such a beautiful day!
Response from Graceful Beginnings, LLC: Thank you. It was a blessing to be a part of the day.
As a fellow vendor in the wedding industry, I met and began working with Gaye and her team at Graceful Beginnings about three years ago. Every endeavor, every experience, she has always been more than courteous and helpful to everyone involved. She has such a heart for what she does and every client and vendor she encounters. I have watched her continuously go above and beyond, wedding after wedding, event after event, to ensure a seamless and beautiful outcome. Even through the long hours of event set up and late hours of break down, she does it with such grace and patience. I have watched her handle tricky situations with integrity and clarity. From the start, she listens to the voice of the client and makes your big day or event about you and works to bring your vision to life. She truly is one of the best wedding planners I have had the pleasure of working alongside and I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.
Response from Graceful Beginnings, LLC: Thank you, Courtney. I so enjoy working with you.
Gaye was great at keeping our special day organized and flowing smoothly. In the midst of the chaos that is the wedding day, she helped me feel as relaxed as possible. It was nice knowing that all of the vendors, decorating, and organization were being taken care of while all I had to think about was marrying my best friend.
Response from Graceful Beginnings, LLC: Thank you. It was a joy to help you plan your wedding.
