This review is going to be a little different because it's not wedding related.. but let me say that we used Hey Gorg for our wedding first and were blown away with her attention to detail, so when the time came for our baby shower we knew who to call. My mom was hosting and she was so grateful to have Rhi taking care of everything. We both appreciated her input and all her ideas were exactly what we were thinking. The day of the shower came and I was so touched with her added details. Things like, cute straws, baby wishes, initial banners, etc- they made the shower and those are the things our guests noticed the most that my mom and I wouldn't have thought of. If you're looking for someone to plan your special event, Hey Gorg is who to call. She worked with our budget and made the day the most special day.

I had been following Rhiannon on Instagram for a year prior to my fiancé and I being engaged. I knew I wanted her to design and plan my wedding, so when the day came that we finally got engaged, I contacted her right away. Unfortunately for me, at the time, she was unable to accommodate my wedding in Canada. I was so disappointed.
Fast forward 5 months later. I contacted her again, on a whim, because the planning process was becoming so stressful for us. Between my being in school, my husband starting a new job, and other family obligations it was all to much. To my delight, Rhiannon was now available to help me with our Canadian Wedding!
From the get go, Rhiannon was professional, enthusiastic, and extremely kind. She provided us with beautiful ideas that perfectly matched our personalities after spending the time to get to know us personally via online conversations and Skype Dates (since we are over 5 hours away from where she lives).
After we made the commitment to work with her, we were so so happy with her. Her vision was like no other, and she is so talented in so many ways. She made trips to Canada to visit with us and our venue and church, so that she could get a feel for what we were working with in person, and spent countless hours going over our plans, revising them down to every detail, and making sure that our wedding was going to be exactly how we had envisioned it. On top of all of that, she was so kind, warm hearted, and just an absolute doll. She made herself available whenever we needed her and gave us the peace of mind we needed.
We hired her for partial planning and full design and florals, and her work was absolutely beautiful. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch, and it is because she worked tirelessly behind the scene to make it a seamless, gorgeous, and memorable occasion. Not only did she deliver way more than we dreamed, she even had a special surprise for us the day of our wedding that made it even MORE beautiful. She made sure all 250 of our guests were taken care of, and that we had everything we needed during the day - from food and drink to her special bridal emergency kit should we require anything last minute. Her enthusiasm and excitement the day of was also so awesome to see and made us feel so comfortable that everything was going off perfectly.
Another really important thing for us was that our parents were happy - and they were absolutely THRILLED with her work. We recently watched back our wedding feature film and the videographers captured her doing her thing the morning of - meticulously arranging the flowers, setting up everything perfectly, and we were reminded again what a gem she was to have.
Our guests were in awe at our wedding, from the florals and decor, to the linens and guest books, and said that they had never seen this venue look so beautiful (it is a very popular venue for our area and many many weddings take place there every year).
We heard so much feedback from our other vendors (photographers and videographers) that she was a pleasure to work with as well, and she made sure to get all the details of everything that was required from the venue itself. She is a team player in every way and it showed with the end product of our beautiful wedding day.
If you have any hesitations about Rhiannon or Hey Gorgeous - this review is my testimony to throw your reservations away and hire her. You will be thrilled, dazzled, and inspired!

I found out about Hey Gorgeous Events from a friend of mine who had been following Rhi's blog. Needless to say it was love at first sight, her attention to detail & flawless execution on every wedding in her portfolio hooked me right away! No two weddings were the same and her ideas were inspiring. After contacting her she quickly got back to me & we started to plan what would be my dream wedding. From Skype dates to talk details, to encouraging notes in the mail along the way Rhi quickly became more than my wedding planner, but a great friend. She calmed me in moments of panic, soothed my indecisiveness & helped me take deep breaths all the way up to my walk down the aisle. I can remember my now husband & I keeping her on the phone for hours until midnight on a weeknight crunching numbers & deciding if we were going to sign the next day for our venue we so desperately wanted. She never seemed bothered, but rather happy to help us through it, and helped us go through other costs and make sure we were spending our money the way WE wanted and always making sure we were comfortable with every last penny & decision made. We ended up choosing our dream venue and everything worked out. She infused our day with modern/romantic touches filled with gray, butter yellow & deep peach colors that dripped from ceiling to floor. She transformed our venue into OUR venue, with little surprises for us along the way that made everything that much more special. I couldn't imagine planning a wedding on my own, and I definitely couldn't imagine planning my wedding without Rhi, because it wouldn't of been my wedding, it would of been one of the many weddings I've been to before with my name on the program under 'bride'...Rhi has a way of transforming your personality/beliefs/tastes and anything else you could dream of into reality and THAT is what makes her so special.
Rhi even helped my mom with my non-traditional couples camping themed shower (she of course came up with the adorable theme) and it was one for the books! My family & friends are all still talking about it!
I got married to the man of my dreams on 8/17/2013 and have been thinking of writing this review since then, it has taken me this long due to the fact that I simply cannot imagine how to express my gratitude to someone who helped shape the most important day of my life into a beautiful day that I'll never forget and so I'll just say this, thank you...
