I am not sure where to begin or how to compile the words to express the amount of gratitude & love both Albert & I have for sweet Rhi & her amazing Rhiannon Bosse Celebrations team (yay Betsi, Jodi, the rest of the women & Andrew too)! From our first consultation call, I knew... Read More there was no way this wedding would happen without Rhi. I felt as though I had known her my entire life, she exudes such a genuine kindness and joy. I am a type A perfectionist, so her attention to detail, well thought out planning & exquisite design were so cherished. Our calendar and to-do list were packed to the brim, there isn't a thing she didn't think of. I will be honest when I say Rhi was dealt a very challenging hand with our wedding...but her grace, sense of urgency, class, professionalism, flexibility, ability to think on her toes, perseverance, empathy, love & joy are incomparable. At my breaking points, Rhi was there with such wisdom and love as well as such a peace about her throughout the most stressful of times, which helped to ease all anxiety as she continuously reminded me that I get to marry my best friend. Rhi is so knowledgable and well known in the industry, which made it so easy to put my full trust in her. Before answering a question I was always sure to first seek her insight, most of the time I let her speak on my behalf. Details are everything and Rhi is always sure to design and execute the most special of details. Creating a unique, beautiful evening. Her florals are to die for and her taste is classic and elegant. Rhi worked side by side with us to find the most PERFECT vendors...a whole village of vendors, who she worked with to create a seamless wedding weekend, all coordinated with her 15 page timeline. When I say this woman is the real deal, SHE IS THE REAL DEAL! I thank God every day for Rhi. She not only created a perfect planning experience & inexplainable wedding weekend, but she also opened her heart up, allowing me to gain such a special friend & mentor!

I don't even know if I can accurately put into words how incredibly lucky I feel to have been able to work with Rhi and the Rhiannon Bosse Celebrations team. I had been following Rhi's blog and business for years, and emailed her a week after I got engaged (knowing we weren’t... Read More going to be getting married for two and a half years), and it was the best decision Tim and I could have possibly made for our wedding day. Rhi had her hand in every single part of our day- from choosing a venue, to stationery, calligraphy, finding our photographer, my hair and makeup team, and the entire design and execution of the day. To say she gave us the most wonderful day almost feels like an understatement. A month later we're still hearing from friends and family that they had the best time, and for many it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Our day felt so uniquely us. Every suggestion Rhi made was with us and our unique story in mind. And the best part was that working with Rhi freed Tim and I up to actually enjoy our engagement. There was no stress the week of our wedding, no worrying about last minute details, and on our big day we didn't have to do anything but dress up, show up, and enjoy the day with our favorite people. My bridesmaids couldn’t believe how relaxed I was the day before and morning of our wedding. We were having an outdoor ceremony and I didn’t even check the weather all week because I had every confidence that no matter what happened, rain or shine, we were going to have the most beautiful day. What a gift, to be able to be a guest at your own wedding! I could hardly believe that after so many years of seeing gorgeous blooms on Rhi’ Instagram and blog that the flowers in that room were for us! I actually jumped up and down when Rhi gave me my bouquet- peonies in July!? She is pure magic! I can't help but smile whenever I think about our wedding and do a little happy dance anytime it gets brought up because everything about our day jut surpassed my wildest dreams. That wouldn't have been possible without Rhi. She was able to give us such a wonderful day because more than being an incredible planner and designer, she's an incredible person. She was able to give us the best day ever because she so genuinely cared about us and wanted us to be happy. She took the time to get to know us, learn our story, and planned an entire day around that. We're so, so grateful for Rhi, Jess, Betsi and the rest of the Rhiannon Bosse team. Working with her was a privilege, and the best part is not only did we have a perfectly executed and gorgeously designed day, we gained a true friend. If we didn't have Rhi our wedding would have just been another wedding, but it was perfectly us in every way. Being a Rhiannon Bosse bride was an honor, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

I had the honor of being one of Rhi’s 2016 brides, and it was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding – other than my groom, of course! I wouldn’t have had the wedding day I did without the creativity, professionalism, and heart of the Hey Gorgeous team behind it.... Read More After following Rhi’s blog for years and having the pleasure of partnering with her for an event for kate spade new york, becoming a Hey Gorgeous bride was a long-time dream for me. And the experience still exceeded every one of my expectations. Planning a wedding with Rhi was like having a built-in best friend with all the ideas and resources in the world. Although we were states apart during my engagement (Chicago to Grand Rapids), I spent more time talking to Rhi about my wedding than any other person in my life - even my fiancé! More than a wedding planner, Rhi was my partner, my confidant, and my friend. I gave Rhi a challenging venue, a tight budget, and a very opinionated perfectionist bride – and her team made magic happen. From the beautiful hand-sketched design proposal, to the enchanting mockup that made our vision come to life, to the flawless execution of every idea, wedding planning with Rhi was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The wedding day Rhi dreamed into life for us was colorful, fun, charming, and truly one-of-a-kind – everything we had asked for. Walking in to my venue and seeing the joy in Rhi, Jess, and Betsi’s eyes is one of my favorite memories from the day. These girls love putting on a wedding as much as you love having it. And even though we had walked step by step through the entire day’s plan so many times, I was still blown away by the final product. The flowers! The lights! The table linens that I had always wanted but didn’t think we were going to be able to get! It was all there and more – an absolute dream come true. More than anything, Rhi gave me the gift of happiness. Being able to relax, be present, and be a guest at my own wedding could only have happened knowing every detail and more was carefully and thoughtfully managed. There was absolutely nothing to worry about. This feeling is irreplaceable - brides, you owe yourself this gift! Over and over, guests have told me that they have never seen such a happy bride on her wedding day. I owe this to the wonderful family and friends that surrounded us, the love that my husband and I share, and the amazing Hey Gorgeous team that gave life to a day that celebrated these things. Thank you, Rhi – I will be forever grateful.

Rhiannon and the Hey Gorgeous team were an invaluable piece to our wedding celebration.

Rhi is... kind of a big deal. She truly is the most genuine, loving, thoughtful and hard-working person I have ever met. She and her team have really got it figured out. I live in Seattle and was a little worried about how all of the details would fall into place with Rhi living... Read More not only across the country, but also in a different time zone. There are a handful of excellent planners in the Seattle area, but they all pale in comparison to Hey Gorgeous Events - we knew it was worth it to choose Rhi over someone local. From our very first phone call to discuss what she offers and how she approaches the whole planning process, we knew that she was exactly who we wanted to help us plan the most important day in our lives. She put my fiance and I at ease from the very beginning and our 15 month long engagement was actually an enjoyable time for us since we knew that every single detail was being thought of and taken care of by Rhi and her team. Rhi really went above and beyond - our wedding experience was something that we will never forget and we are so grateful for Rhi's gentle nudge to bring in truly unique items like custom monogrammed wood medallions to secure our invitation suite together, or cocoa sequined table linens with mustard hued napkins (not to mention the 200+ hand stained {by Rhi, of course} wood napkin rings!) to dress up the rustic wood room. We cannot say enough about how grateful we are to Rhi and the entire Hey Gorgeous Events team for their generosity and love. My mom even not so jokingly said that she wants to have a 35 year vow renewal with my dad and have Rhi plan the whole thing ;) If you choose Hey Gorgeous Events to plan your special celebration, it will be the most memorable and meaningful experience of your life!

Our experience with Hey Gorgeous Events was beyond reproach. I have nothing but good things to say about Rhi and her team. I am not sure there are enough synonyms for amazing/incredible/wonderful to describe how I feel about Rhi and Hey Gorgeous Events. I wanted Rhi to plan our... Read More wedding before I was even engaged. I emailed her over a year before Austin “popped the question” to tell her that one day I would be calling to hire her. And finally, about a year later, Austin proposed! I called my parents and then I called Rhi! I was so excited to start working with her. And boy did we work together for a LONG time. Over the course of our 1-year, 9-month, 27-day engagement, Rhi always remained enthusiastic and focused on making our day perfect. Every aspect of our wedding was dealt with in a professional, creative, and hands-on manner. Rhi has a unique way of making her clients feel so loved and so taken care of. Her sense of style and keen awareness of the overall aesthetic of an event is without compare. She is a master of design, a floral goddess, and she runs a tight ship on wedding day! Her attention to detail throughout the entire planning process was impeccable. Another thing I loved about working with Hey Gorgeous Events is that Rhi does the florals. This is great for two reasons—the more obvious reason: it’s one less vendor to try and nail down; and secondly, having the same person, with the same sense of style and vision, design your flowers as well as your décor, allows for a more cohesive and impactful design. I was absolutely floored by the blooms at our wedding!!! I had so many people {even some guys} say that they were the most beautiful flowers they had ever seen at a wedding. Go Rhi!!! On the day-of, I was blown away by her ability to pickup the slack of other vendors and adapt to minor issues so seamlessly and with such grace. She made our day so fun, amazingly beautiful, and totally stress-free. I knew that everything would be handled because I had Rhi. As a bride, that feeling was priceless. Rhi is willing to go about and beyond for her clients. Although she is based in Michigan and we live in Texas, she was there for me for every decision I had to make—whether it was on the phone, via FaceTime, and even flying out to surprise us and style our engagement shoot!!! I was absolutely shocked that someone would fly all the way down to Texas just to be at our engagement session. Just incredible! Rhi gave me the wedding of my dreams and I can’t thank her enough for being an amazing wedding planner, a kind and generous human being—and now a dear dear friend!

Rhiannon from Hey Gorgeous Events is THE BEST!

I don’t think there are enough words to describe how truly amazing Rhiannon is! Hiring Hey Gorgeous Events for our wedding was hands down the best decision I have ever made! Throughout this entire process, Rhi was not only an exceptional wedding planner, but she became a friend... Read More and a part of our family. I don’t think I have ever met someone who puts so much love into everything she does and every person she meets. She is truly special and a one of a kind! She was there to help with every decision, from venue to dj, to cake, to décor, to first dances, to florals, etc. She did it all! We talked at least once a week and sometimes more. If I wanted to text her a quick question, she was there. If I sent her an email, she responded immediately. I even had an emergency question for her on a Saturday, and she responded right away! Despite the fact that she has a personal life, and most likely a million other things going on, she made us feel like we were her number one priority. For every decision that needed to be made, she presented us with different options for everything like flowers, photographers, bakers, dress shops, you name it! She knew our style and our budget, and even made sure to check over contracts beforehand, which was super helpful. She was extremely organized and because of this, nothing felt rushed. Everything was done according to a specific timeline and had plenty of time to think about all the different options. When it came time to talk about things like décor and flowers, she made sure to schedule a Skype date with my mom and I to hear all of our ideas! Being a bride that had absolutely no idea about any of these things, having her opinion and expertise was such a big help! For our wedding, Rhi arrived three days beforehand with an entire team of people and more flowers than I had ever seen in my life! She assembled every single flower by hand with her incredible team that weekend. She handled all logistics and created a timeline to keep all of our vendors and family members organized. She also made sure every detail about the ceremony and the reception were 100% perfect. All of our family and friends were in awe of her talent and hard work. She literally executed the wedding of our dreams. It was so amazing and perfect in every way, all because of her. Not only did she do an amazing job on all of the incredible details like flowers and décor that day, but there were also so many special touches and surprises. I initially thought my dream of hanging bistro lights wouldn’t be able to happen. But on the night of our wedding I was so surprised to see that she had found a way to string them over the dance floor! Also, we didn’t think it was necessary to have a guest book, but Rhi thought we might regret this choice. So, she went out on her own and purchased a large frame to take around to all of our guests. She had each guest sign it without us even knowing! Now that I have this gift, I am so happy she did it! At one point in the night, my dress starting ripping, and like superwoman, Rhi appeared on the dance floor with a needle and thread to sew me back in. I’m telling you, she is that amazing! Like I said above, if I could write a novel for Rhi’s review, I would! If you’re thinking about hiring her, stop thinking and do it. She will dazzle you, excite you, amaze you, surprise you, impress you, etc., etc.! She truly is THE BEST!

Writing a review for Rhiannon that truly speaks to the quality of service she provides to her clients is almost impossible. I'll do my best though! I found a Hey Gorg wedding on Style Me Pretty maybe a month before getting engaged. I tucked Rhi's name away in a favorites list... Read More that I assumed would grow and that I would later skim through and select a planner from… Except, I never favorited another vendor. I think this highlights the truth - there is no one else out there like Rhi! Hiring her was a no-brainer after a quick phone chat. Over the year and a half of our engagement, planning the wedding was certainly a source of stress, but having Rhi by my side to chew over every detail and decision with was a dream come true. Her patience and creativity blew my mind. Most of my favorite pieces of the wedding were ideas of her's, and I know she had to tire of my 'newbie' questions but she was always encouraging me to ask more. Rhi does a great job of using social media, and my friends (especially bridesmaids) loved it anytime she posted some little tidbit involving our wedding. They were so excited to meet her and see the wedding come together by the time it arrived. I think that, along with the surprises she had hidden for us throughout the day and planning experience, was a super fun part of the HGE experience. And I know the girls and all the rest of our guests were not disappointed when the day came! Even though there were a few 'issues' on the day of, I didn't find out about them until all was said and done (I'm not sure she ever actually told me everything that went wrong ;) The gals who did our make-up/hair said I was the calmest bride they had ever dealt with, and I attribute that 100% to Rhi. I knew all would be taken care of, so I just enjoyed being the bride. That's worth every dime, right there! I see Rhi doing her own floral design as a huge plus, and something that makes her unique. It was so nice being able to trust that my florist and my wedding planner both completely understood my vision and were on the same page (cause they were the same person, ha!) She knocked it out of the park, as I knew she would. Finally, I was really impressed with how well she worked with other vendors, whether they were ones she had suggested or not. She was also absolutely amazing with our 3 year old flower girl, making her feel comfortable enough to walk the aisle like a little lady. I think the worst part about hiring Rhi is the time after the wedding when you say goodbye!

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.

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 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!!

Grand Haven Wedding, 6/29/2013

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... Read More 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.

Benton Harbor Wedding, 6/2/2013 from the Groom

From the Groom: Rhiannon Nicole / Hey Gorgeous Events was invaluable in transforming our ideas into realities. We crafted our wedding into a celebration of our lives together in both practical and fantastical / imaginative terms. As artists, our ideas for our big day were... Read More expansive and also had a level of abstraction. Rhi brought our abstract concepts, specific hopes and most important desires for the day into shape. She realized our ideas while establishing trust with us and adding her own suggestions in order to further define and make possible the event. She contributed her own ideas to the process and we began to collaborate in order to bring to life cross-cultural influences from Taipei / Taiwanese and Kentuckian / American Southern traditions. We complemented these traditions with our own aesthetics in ways that most literally and directly were made possible by all of the hard work and dedication that Rhiannon put into the process with us, into helping us to take our steps together on our journey.

Benton Harbor Wedding, 6/2/2013 from the Bride

From the Bride: With Rhiannon’s help, I literally had my dream wedding come true. My now husband and I had very specific ideas and themes for our wedding. We are both artists and we hesitated in hiring a professional event designer to help us in constructing what seemly... Read More we could have just done ourselves. Boy, am I glad that we chose Hey Gorgeous Event! Rhiannon is professional, friendly, and helpful. Beyond that (usual requirement of a wedding event designer), she is extremely sincere. We wanted a shabby chic, glitter rainbow, cowboy unicorn fantasy wedding that wasn’t cheesy or immature. We required all the classic romantic notions on top of a unique but difficult-to-achieve concept. All of the above had to fit into a somewhat traditional wedding because we are nostalgic and think being old school is sweet. Lastly, our wedding had to represent us as who we are. Rhiannon did such an awesome job hitting every of our demands. She earned a flying A. Her sincerity in being on the same team as her clients shone through all our planning and accomplished much more than I expected. Our fantastic wedding was also an out-of-town wedding in Michigan (we live in Chicago) with a limited budget. I am Taiwanese, and being the first to be married amongst my close girlfriends, I was completely unfamiliar with all the proper wedding planning, western traditions and necessities. Rhiannon selflessly taught me all the knowledge a bride should know and more to my husband. She stayed on top of the budget throughout the entire process, and even after the wedding. She was totally flexible for our meetings (via phone, on Skype or in person). She is well connected locally and nationally in the wedding industry, which helped tremendously to cut down expenses. She also is a talented florist. The floral arrangements in my wedding made my mother (part-time florist herself) gasp. Rhiannon has great taste and always shared her honest opinions to my sometimes-crazy ideas. She never once limited my creative freedom and desire as her client and the bride. She’s always respectful, and patient even when there’s a problem with vendors or there’s been a change of plans. She has a warm and cheerful personality that helped me stay calm, organized and excited. She constantly expressed her gratitude, which included sending us some special little newly wed gifts. But most importantly, Rhiannon is genuine when she says she wants to be part of your wedding and make it better than amazing. She is damn good at it and the Internet agrees! Her genuine sincerity and professional drive to self-betterment as an event designer was what made her go so many extra miles in making my dream wedding come true. A bride-to-be is often told: at least one thing will go wrong during her big day. Nothing went wrong because Rhiannon planned my wedding. She was there on my big day before and after me. More than 10 guests e-mailed us the day after our wedding, telling my husband and I they had just attended the best wedding in their lives. Still don’t believe me? Find #shabbychicglitterunicornrainbowwedding on Instagram and ask Rhiannon’s 14K followers. I am so grateful to have found and worked with Rhiannon and Hey Gorgeous Event. Thank you, Rhiannon. We heart you.

best decision ever (after choosing to marry my husband :)

We hired Rhi well in advance of our September 2012 wedding and are so, so glad we did! Rhi is an amazing person and was so helpful throughout the planning process. We hired her to work with us as a coordinator, but Rhi provided so much more! She gave vendor referrals, kept us... Read More on track in the planning, and, most importantly, provided some much needed support, encouragement, and inspiration throughout the planning process. I really valued having Rhi's opinion (because obviously she has the most amazing taste) and was so glad we had her to pull together all the little details and make our wedding pretty and perfectly us. I left every skype date with Rhi feeling energized and exciting and CALM about our wedding. Rhi also acted as an advocate for us with our vendors and took over communication and coordination with them, which was a HUGE weight off my shoulders. I knew Rhi was always on top of everything. The weekend of the wedding she was so amazing. She even coordinated last minute rentals for me when I called her in a panic the day before the wedding. Rhi made our wedding run like a dream and brought all the gorgeous details together so smoothly. I didn't worry about a thing on my wedding day, and for that I am so grateful. She even brought me my favorite Starbucks drink the morning of the wedding while we were getting married! Rhi is simply the sweetest person and works her butt off for all her clients. Her heart and soul is in her work and it really shows. I am so happy to have stumbled on her blog and found her. thanks Rhi!
