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...

When first presented with the idea of having a "couples" shower...something I had no idea how to create...I said yes immediately but fretted for months as to how to pull it off. The venue was our home and my husband and I have given more than our share of parties through the years, but I was in a difficult time of my life, dealing with ailing parents and the mere thought of tackling this and making it a wonderful day for the engaged couple simply overwhelmed me. I called Hey Gorgeous Events (our daughter and her fiance had previously contracted Rhi to plan their wedding) approximately six weeks out from the date that was set and asked Rhi for direction. Without hesitation she started coming up with ideas and offered to help make the day amazing. I was overjoyed by the little details she came up with to tie it all together with the wedding she was planning for our "kids" on August 17, 2013. There was a camping theme, a large tent with lights, fire pit with a lounging area around it. Packages of smores put together as favors for the party guests to take home or use around the camp fire. It was all a beautiful, beautiful presentation and a night to remember. Truly different than anything we had seen before. I don't know where her ideas come from, but once she started rolling with it, it just grew to be one incredible evening. The night set the tone for the nuptials to come. There are way too many details for me to describe except to say that nothing was left to chance. She had everything covered and checked with us every step of the way to be sure we were on the same page. I am sure that this shower will be talked about for a long time to come and like my Mother said "it may start a whole new trend". BEAUTIFUL!!

I don't think I can even put into words how amazing my experience has been with Rhi from Hey Gorgeous Events. As a Texas bride getting married in Grand Haven,MI I realized early on that planning a wedding from afar wasn't going to be easy.
Rhi and I first started talking in July of 2012 as I had reached out to her to see if she offered floral services. After our first chat on the phone I immediately knew I wanted to work with her, she was beyond sweet, professional beyond her years, incredibly creative, and she instantly understood my vision for my wedding day.
Not only did I end up using her for my flowers (which were UNBELIEVABLE and admired by everyone) but she also handled my linens, chair rental, and overall design of the reception - from little escort cards pinned to tangerines to over-sized balloons attached to my husband and my chairs. No task is too big or too small for Rhi and she will honestly do everything she can to make your vision for your wedding come true. She worked fantastically with my other vendors, communicating with them throughout the process and ensuring that the set up of the big day went off without a hitch.
Rhi has a true passion for event planning and design and goes above and beyond to make her brides feel so special. She even put together a beautiful flower arrangement in memory of my mom that sat upon the altar at our ceremony. Seriously, the sweetest thing ever. She invests so much of her time and heart into each wedding and it absolutely shows. I honestly cannot say enough great things about Rhi and working with her was really a blessing. I admire her so much and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great wedding planner - you can't beat Rhi.
