Specifically looking for a Clearwater Beach wedding planner who was personable, organized, and able to help perfectly execute her vision, the bride turned to Special Moments Events Planning.

“My family helped me tremendously when it came to planning the wedding. However, I knew I wanted to hire a day-of planner to make sure everything ran smoothly,” Silvana explained. “Special Moments were amazing! They were organized, helpful, and provided great service!”

Envisioning an ambiance that combined classic Victorian elegance with modern chic decor, the bride’s cousin just happened to be the talented florist at Gabro Event Services

“My vision was something neutral, pure, and stunning,” the bride shared. “I was really impressed with all of the events that Gabro Event Services had been a part of, and I believed so much in their talent that I knew I wanted them as a vendor on our special day. They went over and beyond our expectations and beyond their responsibilities. Aside from nailing our vision, they were very professional, personable, and organized. We absolutely loved all of the work they did. Our favorite part? The flowers! They were fabulous, beautiful, stunning, and breathtaking! Gabro Events did more than we could ever thank them for!”

Looking back on their stunning celebration, the bride will never forget the overwhelming feeling of happiness when she saw her groom smiling back at her.

“The most memorable moment for me was my dad handing me to Justin at the church,” the bride reminisced. “Finally getting to see him was such a surreal moment. We were very blessed to have so many friends and family from around the world with us to celebrate our special day. It truly made our day unforgettable.”

The Proposal:
Justin asked me to go for a walk at a nearby park by the water. A helicopter passed by with my favorite bible verse, so I told him, “Look, that’s such a weird coincidence.” Then the helicopter passed by again with a huge sign asking me to marry him! He got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said, “YES!”
