Justin & Gabrielle at the Langham

Working with Gabrielle and Justin was such a wonderful experience. From their individual style, to detail in decor and thoughtfulness towards one another, Gabrielle and Justin complement each other in every way. Their natural eye for design and attention to detail translates cohesively from start to finish. It is always such fun for me to have clients with great style that want to think a little outside of the box!

Justin was the most organized and attentive groom I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Not one detail was forgotten— including giving gifts and handwritten notes to each of the bridesmaids the morning of the big day. Neither of them missed a beat to be honest. From the gorgeous textured ceremony ring to the matte black flatware, they created the perfect balance of contemporary chic and soft romance (much like themselves!).

Let’s not forget to mention the A team of vendors they had! The Langham never ceases to impress with their exceptional service, and the team at Life in Bloom knocked the ceremony and reception design out of the park, the DJ was on top of everything throughout the planning process (and obviously turned the party up), and the 3D photo booth was such a hit. I could go on and on here, but it makes perfect sense that Gabrielle and Justin chose vendors as thoughtful as they are and as stylish! Special shout out to the Michelle Durpetti Events team because they are always such a pleasure to work with!

I loved every moment working with them! They are genuine, styled, organized and more than anything—fun. Thank you, Gabrielle and Justin. I am forever grateful for you! Cheers and congratulations!
