“Gianna is by far the most experienced wedding planner that you can ever find in Los Angeles area. Compared to her portfolio and experience her rate is very reasonable too. She truly loves wedding planning and I can see her passion whenever I talk to her and that’s one thing I really liked about her. Another thing I want to mention is her responsiveness. She is ALWAYS available whenever you talk to her; It feels like you’re the only client of hers.”

“I want to thank you again for helping to give us a dream wedding. You were the best, especially on the day of. Everything went flawlesly. And you were so much fun.”

“We were referred to Gianna by a friend who absolutely loved her during their wedding process. Gianna is a very positive and loving person. Her goal is 100% to make you happy. She will give you her opinion but ultimately wants you to make the final decisions because it is YOUR wedding day after all! She was available all the time, whenever I needed her. All of our guests were in awe by how beautiful the wedding was and how smoothly the day ran. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect wedding day. Thank you Gianna!!!!”

~ Michelle and James Kim

“Gianna was a godsend. She was referred to us through a friend and we definitely saw why. She helped navigate us through the steps of planning a wedding since we had no experience with it. She was able to pull together our ideas and plan an elegant, romantic, classic, yet modern wedding that was 100% our style. She has an amazing relationships with her vendors who are all wonderful to work with and awesome at what they do. She was always available for me and there to help me whenever I needed it. She has a wonderfully positive “can-do” attitude. My husband and I now consider her a friend and would recommend her to anyone. Our guests thought our wedding was beautiful and flawlessly done. Thanks Gianna!!”

~ Christina and Andy Fohrer

“My husband and I are both television Producers and had extremely high expectations when it came to producing our own wedding. It was difficult for us to put our big day into the hands of someone else when we are both so used to being in control of everything, but it was the best decision we ever made! Gianna far exceeded every expectation we had! We were able to just sit back, relax and enjoy every second of the entire experience, from picking the location to cutting the cake. She was there for us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for an entire year of planning. By the end of the process it was almost as if she was a part of the family. I can not imagine ever having done this without her. She is worth double what she charges!”

~ Colleen and Chris Wagner

“Our wedding was a dream come true – it was so hot we lit the state on fire!!! On a serious note… We didn’t worry about a thing that day… You were amazing, and it was all perfect! Thank you for everything!”

~ Suzanne & Chris Covert

“Thank you so much for coordinating and helping plan our special day. Everything turned out even more beautiful than we had hoped. There is no way we could have stayed as stress free through-out the whole process without you. We appreciated your patience when we didn’t know what we wanted or changed our minds. Thank you again!”

~ Alyssa and Adam Zarlengo

“Throughout the planning process Gianna was always accessible, and a great advisor on what needed to be done for the wedding we imagined. She has the highest standards, and is a valuable resource for top-quality vendor referrals and design. Discreetly behind the scenes, she ensured our big day ran smoothly and made it a memorable event for us and our guests.”

~ Drs. Linda and Michael Lee

“I have very high standards and am quite a perfectionist, so I almost expected to be disappointed afterwards. Although a few unexpected things happened that no one could have controlled (like toilets flooding!), Gianna completely shielded me and my husband from any stress and just handled it 100%. We will never forget you.”

~ Love, Melissa & Matthew McPheeters-Oden

“Gianna consistently went above and beyond the call of duty. She focused in on what we wanted and turned a good event into an amazing one! From location scouting and vendor contracts to overseeing the Big Day, she consistently proved herself to be an invaluable resource.”

“My wife and I have lived in a number of cities in Canada over the years, and upon getting engaged in Huntington Beach, we felt that we should have our wedding at a destination location. After much deliberation, we decided that it would be great to have a backyard wedding in the LA area. Our choice for the venue was to be either Beverly Hills or Malibu, as we have frequented those areas and love what they had to offer. We came across Gianna’s website one day, and immediately loved her preferred locations. We felt it was prudent to thoroughly research her services before we contacted her to discuss the venues. The reviews were flawless. Our first conversation went very well, so we flew to LA to meet with Gianna and visit a number of venues (hotels, clubs, and estates).

After completing our initial consultation with Gianna, there was no question that we wanted her to be our coordinator. Gianna has access to some of the most beautiful properties in the LA area, and an excellent vendor listing (catering, photography, rentals, floral, music, lighting, etc). Gianna is extremely organized, and her dedication to perfecting our special day was priority number one. Since we do not live in the area, Gianna worked with us to find everything we needed for our wedding. I literally mean everything, except for the wedding party’s clothing, a Danish wedding cake (ordered in Solvang), and our rings. Otherwise, she consulted on every facet of the event. On the actual wedding day (July 21, 2012), her execution was flawless. It is often cliche for one to say in their wedding speech “I would really like to thank ____, because I really could not have done this without you!”. And you think to yourself, “Yeah yeah, whatever!… Seriously, is the bar still open during dinner?”. But to be completely cliche, we truly could not have been able to plan our wedding to the caliber that we did without a trusting, dedicated, well connected, coordinator like Gianna.

Now that our wedding planning has come to a close, I can honestly say that it is somewhat bittersweet… My wife and I couldn’t be happier that we are finally married and we can start to move forward in our new life together, however we are sad that we will not be in contact with Gianna as much as we were before. Gianna was more than just our wedding coordinator, she became part of our family. Thank you so much Gianna!”

~ Trevor Guinard, Groom

Gianna is a wonderful planner, but she also became a wonderful friend. She loves what she does for a living and her passion shows in her work when that special day arrives. She puts all of her love and effort into the event as if it were her special day and I think that is what sets Gianna aside from any other event planners I’ve worked with. I’m a performer and usually I’m the one on the other side of the curtain and I see how most event planners work. This time it was my special day, my wedding day. She made myself and my husband feel so relaxed and worry free on the day of our wedding. She had everything under control and the night turned out to be the most perfect night of our lives. She helped make our dream wedding a reality. I would highly recommend Gianna for any type of events!

“I want to thank you again for helping to give us a dream wedding. You were the best, especially on the day of. Everything went flawlesly. And you were so much fun.”

~ Sue Henderson, Bride

“I want to express to you my heartfelt thanks for being a major part of making my daughter Liza’s dreams come true with regard to her recent wedding . As you know, being the father of the bride and being 3,000 miles away from the wedding site is a difficult track to maneuver. It was because of you and your excellent professional manner that made the track easy to navigate. Liza and her husband Jordan are in Hawaii on their honeymoon at this time and they continue to talk about the magic of their wedding. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

~ Allan Samuels, Esq.

The compliments are endless when it comes to Gianna! My wedding had so many details that I didn’t think would be possible to pull off until I met Gianna. Not only did she make me feel at ease, I gained a sense of security about my event. Gianna was on top of every detail and ahead of every stage of the plan. She is like your long lost relative that wants to make all of your visions and dreams of a beautiful day come true! Not to mention here engaging persona and sharp wit that always made her a joy to be around! I just adore her! All of my family and wedding party couldn’t believe how incredible Gianna and her team of experts were! Gianna is a one of a kind very gifted person and I believe anyone that has the opportunity to meet her would be blown away!

~ Sincerely, Victoria Collier

Gianna, Last night was above and beyond all my dreams and you were such a huge part of making them come true. Thank you so much for everything you did and I truly feel you were the best planner I could have ever had. last night was magical and I will never forget it and I cant thank you enough!!!!!

~ Liza Samuels

Some of our friends referred Gianna to us, and she helped us plan our wedding at Saddlerock Ranch on May 14th, 2011. Due to the complex nature of the venue, her personal experience with the ranch as well as her knowledge of and connections with similarly experienced vendors was invaluable. Being a very “hands-on” bride and having had a particular vision about the day, I appreciated Gianna for her welcoming all of my ideas and ensuring that everything was executed the way I envisioned. I learned that one of the most integral resources to have during wedding planning is someone with the experience to ask all the big-picture and detail-oriented questions. Gianna was not only able to stay on top of these, but she was also able to address all of my own concerns–and most importantly, she was always available for me. I always felt as if I was her only client and was always able to reach her.”

~ Emily Chen Choi

“Best decision I made. My daughter was planning her own wedding and trying to keep the cost down. As a gift, I hired Gianna to help her with the coordination. What a gift!!! Gianna was there for us with answers, ideas and support whenever it was needed. She cared about our event as much as we did. The wedding day was beautiful. Knowing Gianna had everything under control let us enjoy the day completely. I would hire Gianna again in a heartbeat.”

~ Alison Drucker, Mother of the Bride

“I can’t thank you enough for your kindness, patience and good advice. We could never have pulled off such a gorgeous wedding without you. You have been invaluable and a pleasure to work with and I will miss speaking with you daily! Best wishes.”

~ Susan Shelton, Esq.

“I recently had my wedding on May 16th. Because I’m a clothing designer, my wedding was very outside the box in terms of creativity and style. Gianna was able to give me my dream wedding because of her ability of putting all of the pieces together. Her organization, connections and art of “getting the job done” was very impressive. We had a lot of details and she was able to make it happen.By day of wedding, she was on 29th revision of an 11 page itinerary. She would take calls from me anytime leading up to the wedding and felt like a friend as well. She can be trusted for any type of party, but from experience with her, she can handle even the most elaborate of events.”

~ Jessica Marks

“Having your guidance was absolutely crucial to the success of the event, and I’m so grateful that I was able to have you aboard as a consultant. It was also a pleasure to get to know you, and I very much respect the way you work. Our wedding was a huge success. We’ve gotten so much positive feedback from our guests on every aspect of the wedding, from the flowers, to the venue, to the DJ, to the dress, to our unique and non-traditional choices (In-N-Out, Captain Ice Cream for desert, no sit down dinner, our best friend officiating), as well as the overall organization and professional running of the event.”

~ Zoe McElroy

“My daughter discovered Gianna Provenzano on the internet 8 months before her wedding, when we were in the infant stage of what was to become the experience of a lifetime. Gianna never let us down with the simplest to most complicated of details, referrals and professional expertise which made our decisions more secure. We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding weekend, free to act as Host and Hostess while she and her staff kept the wedding on the tracks. Our only criticism is that it went too fast.”

~ Ann Sunderland, Mother of the Bride

“This was a fairy tale wedding with a modern twist. When my son, Jonathan and daughter-in-law, Kate asked me to help them plan their wedding, I felt elated to be a part of the experience. I knew that it would be no easy task because they were looking for something unique rather than traditional. Gianna made certain that every detail that they asked for became a reality. Because of her expertise and dedication the wedding was spectacular, far surpassing our expectations. I truly enjoyed working with Gianna. Our family has a wonderful memory to look back on and cherish and I have made a good friend that I hope to keep for life.”

~ Barbara Taps

“Gianna made our wedding day the most joyous occasion. Planning with her was a very good and fun experience. I am grateful to her for being an exceptional planner, a good confidante and a very warm person.”

~ Gina Padilla and N. Dexter Williams, Jr.

“The wedding was perfect in every way. All in all, it was a dream wedding that you made possible.”

~ Sue Richard, Mother of the Bride

“Thanks to GP Events, our wedding day exceeded all our expectations; we had more fun than I dared to dream for in my wildest imagination. Gianna’s meticulous planning and attention to detail, helped turn our new home into a fantastic setting where we were able to relax and truly enjoy the love and blessings of our family and friends. Gianna was central in making May 28, 2005 the happiest day of our lives.”

~ Carla Janzen, MD

“GP Events provided outstanding service! They listened to me and understood what I was looking for in a location. GP Events was friendly, professional and dedicated to meeting and exceeding my expectations. They delivered on their promises and I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

~ Brenda K. Lee

“I was about to cancel my wedding and elope because I was so frustrated in finding an affordable venue for our wedding and reception. I had very specific criteria and a tight budget. I visited a web site listing coordinators and Gianna called me the very next morning. In a matter of days she found the perfect venue for our wedding.”

~ Rachel Swan

“Gianna is a ‘can do’ person. She is resourceful, capable, a creative thinker, and she does it all with a great sense of humor. I always feel I’m in good hands when Gianna is on my team.”
