Gabrielle Stone of Stone Event Planning was an absolutely extraordinary wedding planner to work with as we planned our wedding weekend. We spent about 16 months working with Gabrielle to plan our wedding (ceremony and reception) at the Institut...
e of Contemporary Art, a welcome party for our out-of-town guests on a Boston Harbor Cruise, a rehearsal dinner at Boston Public House, and a farewell brunch at The Newbury Hotel for our friends and family. The fact that we had so many events happening throughout our wedding weekend meant that there were many logistics and points of contact. Gabrielle and her team were able to keep all of these pieces organized and helped us understand the timeline for when we should make which decisions for which events. Gabrielle is not only well connected to countless vendors in the Boston area but is also extremely organized, kind, and responsive. My husband and I often joked that we couldn't believe she was planning multiple weddings at one time because we always felt like we had her undivided attention and support for 16 months straight.
My husband and I both started new jobs right around the time we began planning our wedding. We were working crazy hours and our schedules were not always conducive to "typical" meeting times. Gabrielle was flexible and willing to work with us - often times scheduling zoom calls at 8pm so we could all check in on the planning. I also had some very particular personal touches that I wanted to include in our ceremony and reception. Gabrielle made sure to set realistic expectations for me but also allowed me to make the final decision that would make my partner and I happiest.
Finally, we greatly appreciated Gabrielle and her team's organization and support on our wedding day. She and her assistants were friendly, helpful, and made sure that the Bridal Party and our families had everything we needed. She was able to answer questions and manage logistics so that my husband and I did not have to worry about this and were able to focus on our special day. In the end, our wedding day was absolutely perfect. After it was over, we both said we wanted to relive that same day over and over. If we were to do this all over again, we would absolutely choose Gabrielle.
If you are looking for a planner that can help you bring your vision to life, connect you to all the vendors you need, make recommendations based off what style / aesthetic you are looking for, and manage your budget along the way , then Stone Event Planning is the best way to go. Gabrielle's friendly personality, professional mannerisms, and industry experience make her a complete dream to work with and someone we know made our wedding go from great to PERFECTION.

She kept us on task from day one and was completely transparent as far as costs and responsibilities. Gabrielle was readily available, and we felt that we had her undivided attention despite her planning multiple weddings at once. She has years of excellent experience, which allowed her to connect us with several vendors (any of which I have no doubt would have done a wonderful job) so we were able to choose the ones we felt best matched our personality and style. Gabrielle joined all meetings, and both she and our vendors listened to our vision and enhanced it with their professional opinions. We had two unexpected challenges right before and during our wedding, both of which illustrated how important it is to work with an experienced wedding planner. Gabrielle handled both situations incredibly efficiently and took all stress off of our shoulders. We cannot thank Gabrielle and her team enough. She will made your special day absolutely spectacular without a doubt!

We were just so pleased throughout the whole process, she was highly responsive and commutative, always following up right away and I knew she was "on it" the whole time! Our big day was last weekend and we just felt so lucky that we were in great hands and could enjoy the process, as well as the big day, without too much stress.
Gabrielle was also very understanding that our 3.5 year old daughter was part of our celebration, and was so helpful to plan according to what might come up with a toddler! Something we appreciated immensely.
We highly recommend Gabrielle as a wedding and event planner, could not be happier with how our big day turned out!

Gabrielle helped us plan three events over the course of our wedding weekend, and she was extremely helpful in giving us all the steps in the planning process and the deadlines that went with them. Gabrielle was very pleasant and knowledgeable, and always followed up with us to make sure we were on track with our tasks. During the day of our events, we had confidence in Gabrielle that everything was going smoothly (or would go smoothly if something were to go wrong!). Gabrielle was invested in us and our events, and helped us out even though they were in Connecticut, outside of the city of Boston where Gabrielle does the majority of her weddings. She found great vendors in Connecticut for us to work with, and we're very grateful for all of her hard work and support!

We planned our wedding for 17 mon...
ths with Gabrielle, and of course it got stressful at times, but we always felt that Gabrielle was steering us in the right direction. She recommended high-quality vendors for us to work with, then coordinated meetings, costs, and other details with them. She was respectful of our choices, but always gave her professional opinion when we asked. Leading up to the wedding and on the day itself, she coordinated among all the vendors, and there are probably a million behind-the-scenes things she took care of that we will never know about. A few of our vendors mentioned to us that we were lucky to be working with Gabrielle, because she is best in class.
On the wedding day itself, it was fun to see Gabrielle (and her two assistants) in their element – calm, cool, and collected. She came and said hello to us in our getting ready suites, and seeing her in the morning put me at ease. We had some last minute table seating swaps, and she reminded me that morning to give her the new place cards. I would’ve completely forgotten otherwise. During the whole evening, Gabrielle anticipated our needs before we even had them, whether it be bringing a glass of water or bringing my extra pair of shoes. She always made sure to be close by so we could easily find her if we had questions or requests. At the end of the night, she and her staff delivered all the items we wanted to save, personal belongings, wedding gifts to our hotel suite.
We highly recommend working with Gabrielle on your wedding! She's worth every penny!

I am so glad that my husband and I hired Gabrielle to lead our wedding planning from start to finish. I went into my engagement period with no clue how to even begin with the wedding planning process, so I enlisted Gabrielle to help me navigate...
the year ahead. Once she came on board, I felt a flood of relief as she gave us direction and guidance, all the while reassuring us that we'd create a beautiful and meaningful wedding together. To say she is organized is an understatement: she was on top of each big and small detail, our planning timeline, day-of logistics, and more. She responded to all of our questions and concerns in a timely manner (and I had many!), always professional, kind, and knowledgable. Her communication with all our vendors was especially helpful, since she's established a long and trusting relationship with many of them. As most couples planning a wedding don't work in the wedding business, it's great to have someone with her connections on your team! The vendors I hired all spoke highly of Gabrielle - from hair/makeup, to photography, etc. - which meant they were eager to work with her and contribute their services to our wedding day. Each vendor she connected us with was high quality and reliable. Her communication with them was also useful since I was planning a wedding in Boston while I live four hours away in NYC, so I couldn't often visit vendors or venues in person. Lastly, I appreciated the effort Gabrielle dedicated to learning all about the particular customs and rituals at our wedding. We had a pretty traditional Jewish ceremony with several religious aspects, and she made sure to do her research so that she'd be prepared to help with each unique part of the day.
Wedding planning can be anxiety provoking, but hiring Gabrielle will help you feel calm and confident that everything will work out in the end. Our wedding was beautiful, memorable, and personally meaningful-- thanks in no small part to Gabrielle's expertise, patience, and guidance along the way.

Gabrielle Stone of Stone Event Planning, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Gabrielle did an outstanding job managing the “wedding project” for over 1 ½ years prior to the event and ESPECIALLY during the event. Her attention to detail and her logistical guidance were impeccable. Weddings are complicated things with a million moving parts. Staying on top of these things to ensure a flawless wedding is no small job, but Gabrielle pulled it off. We couldn’t be happier and would wholeheartedly recommend her if you are in search of a wedding planner. Her and her team were there whenever we needed them and kept the event running on time. Any small problems were immediately resolved without making excuses. Probably the most enlightening thing to us that demonstrated Gabrielle’s commitment to a well run event was at midnight when the party was over she was STILL THERE! She didn’t pass this step on to her staff and go home! She stayed until the wedding party and parents had left the venue! We were stunned that she was still there. Gabrielle is well connected with the many, many vendors that are needed for a wedding and it was a great help to us. We only have one daughter, so we don’t get to take advantage of her services again, but we would recommend you do!!

She navigated all of the covid regulations and kept us up to date on everything going on. We were still able to have a small intimate ceremony and dinner with all of her help and hard work.
Beyond the micro wedding, she then continued planning for our reception this year. Because of the amount of groundwork and prep she had already accomplished, we were able to pick up right where we left off and continue planning the reception we had originally intended. Even through the pandemic, everything stayed on track if not ahead of schedule thanks to her hard work.
Both events went off without a hitch, everything handled by Gabrielle and her team seamlessly and professionally. Any requests we had day of were quickly taken care of. I could not recommend her enough if you're looking for a wedding planner. We look forward to seeing the events she manages in the future - they always look amazing!

Her attention to detail and sincere care for the unique aspects of our wedding also really shined through on the wedding weekend as she was able to accomplish so much even through constantly evolving circumstances.
Gabrielle is also incredibly communicative - we always felt like she was there for us and willing to jump in to manage changing deadlines, brainstorm creative ideas, or even just share her advice and perspective given her deep experience in the industry. When we give other loved ones advice on how to plan a wedding, we always stress how important it is to work with someone who you enjoy spending time with and feel like you can communicate openly with. Gabrielle is that person for us. We look forward to seeing her continue to execute amazing weddings for so many other people as well!

s wonderful experience with Gabrielle Stone and Stone Event Planning.
My now husband and I got engaged in December 2016. We live in the Bay Area and knew we wanted to have our wedding celebration in Boston in late summer with about 175-200 people. My parents, who live on Boston’s North Shore and generously hosted our wedding, suggested that we start by finding a skilled local wedding planner who could help make this dream a reality.
In January 2017, we interviewed a few different people by phone and found that we really clicked with Gabrielle. Before we even spoke to her, she had us fill out a questionnaire, which I thought was brilliant. It helped my fiance and I get on the same page about what mattered to us, and it signaled Gabrielle’s thoughtful approach (centered on understanding our hopes and facilitating our getting on the same page). During our first conversation, Gabrielle was prepared, curious, clear, firm, and funny. It felt like she got us - what we were/were not looking for, the constraints of our work lives, the way we want to approach this experience. She and my mom really hit it off too. We were off to the races.
(I cut about five paragraphs that essentially amount to the timeline of our wedding planning since you probably don’t actually need or want that detail.) The headline is that Gabrielle helped make our dream become a reality, in part by helping us figure out what the dream actually was. She framed all the key decisions; presented us with a tailored set of options that made sense for our priorities, style, and budget; connected us with creative, professional, generally wonderful vendors; built a planning timeline that balanced what she has learned from 13+ years in the industry with our own serious scheduling constraints; and facilitated periodic conference calls to ensure we were all on the same page and progressing as needed.
A note about the vendors. One of the coolest, most unexpected parts of this process was coming into contact with an amazing set of creative, talents professionals - from photographers to florists to musicians to make up artists and hair stylists and more. Gabrielle knows the industry and has built strong, enduring relationships with people across it; she helped us select great people to work with, who did an exceptional job delivering on our “vision.” It was a thrill to be part of their processes and to work collaboratively with them. And their work speaks for itself! It says a lot about Gabrielle that every single person we ended up choosing raved about her, her style, and her business. It made me realize anew that we working with a really special woman.

It was evident from her proactive communications and all the documents she shared with us that she was beyond organized and on top of things. That was reflected in the smooth running of our wedding weekend and the fact that everything went off without a hitch. My husband and I also really appreciated her ability to offer her professional opinion when asked (and when necessary); it gave us confidence that she would never let us make bad decisions. We feel like the money we spent on Stone Event Planning was by far the best money spent for the entire wedding, and we recommend Gabrielle and her team most enthusiastically.

My husband and I lived in New York when we were planning our wedding in Boston, and although we both went to school in Boston, we know nothing about the vendors or really anything on how to plan the wedding. I would go ahead and say our wedding wouldn't have been made possible if it wasn't for Gabrielle and her team. They just made everything so easy!
She's always responsive (usually replies your E-mail within 2 hours!) and very organized. She and her team are well connected and experienced with the best vendors in town. We had to take trips from time to time to meet with the vendors, and our weekend trip is always well planned and time well spent. She makes excellent recommendations based on our budget and priorities, and never once was impatient because we couldn't make up our mind. Our wedding was a Harry Potter themed wedding, finding the right balance between elegant and themed is hard to do. Gabrielle really helped us to paint a clear and precise picture of how to carry out this concept with the best team put together. On the wedding day, the team kept everything going smoothly without me being bothered by questions or stress.
If you are thinking of hiring a planner, and I assure you it will make your life so much easier and stress-free, definitely talk to Gabrielle and her team!

t ones I contacted and the first to respond. We clicked with her during our first meeting. She has such a calming manner and her record of beautiful weddings (she showed us a slideshow at the initial meeting) really speaks for itself. Throughout the planning process, she handled all research involved in choosing vendors, leaving us with just a few goods ones to choose from. She then handled all communication with vendors once we selected them, which was so helpful to us. Gabrielle is amazingly organized and able to keep all the myriad moving parts involved in planning a wedding working in perfect harmony. Any time we asked a question, she responded pretty much immediately; we never felt like we weren't her top priority, even though she obviously had other events to work on throughout the year she was planning our wedding. Once the big day came, we found we were not nearly as nervous as we would have expected since we knew Gabrielle and her assistant, Kelly, were making sure all the little details were taken care of. Kelly came to our hotel suite while we were getting ready to make sure we got into our transportation to the venue on time while Gabrielle coordinated set-up at the venue. One of the main reasons I wanted a planner was so that, if something did go wrong the day of, I wouldn't have to worry about it. As far as I know, everything went absolutely perfectly; if something did go wrong, Gabrielle clearly used her extensive experience and know-how to fix it quickly and quietly. Many of our guests pointed out how wonderfully everything worked out and what an enjoyable event it was. I will gladly give much of the credit for everything going so smoothly to Gabrielle and Kelly. My husband and I were able to enjoy ourselves at our wedding and concentrate on spending time with each other and our guests since we didn't have to worry about anything else; this is an invaluable gift for a couple on their wedding day. Gabrielle is certainly not cheap, but you pay for quality. With Gabrielle Stone, you never have to worry that you picked the wrong vendor (she's worked with everyone in the Boston area and knows the best people for every job.) You don't need to deal with every little question vendors have. Gabrielle will meet with you and discuss your wedding requests in depth so she can answer most questions from vendors without ever bothering you. And on your wedding day, Gabrielle will ensure that you are stress-free and can focus on enjoying yourself. I wholeheartedly suggest Gabrielle Stone to anyone who wants a pleasant, stress-free wedding planning experience. You won't regret it!

Gabrielle did an amazing job with our wedding. She was extremely detail oriented and diligent from the beginning of the planning process (which started ~11 months before the actual wedding started) to the actual wedding. She responded quickly (...
usually within a few hours) to countless emails from us over the past 11 months, and met with us and our vendors numerous times in order to ensure every detail was accounted for. She saved us so much time and stress by dealing with all the vendors before the wedding so we didn't have to worry about details such as DJ speaker hook-up at the venue, microphones at the ceremony, etc etc. She also has a Status Report that she updates every few days that guides us to what needs to be done in the short term. This process was highly beneficial for us because it guided us to make decisions on time so we didn't have to stress about last minute tasks and decisions. Instead, we had plenty of time in the days leading up to the wedding to practice our first dance, spend and enjoy time with visiting friends and family, etc. As the bride and groom, we only took off 1-2 days from work total between the two of us which would have been unimaginable without a wedding planner like Gabrielle. Gabrielle also has recommendations for all vendors we needed for our wedding at a range of price points. She even brought a sewing kit to the venue on the day of our wedding, which proved invaluable because the groom's jacket button fell off a few minutes before the ceremony.

the best decision that I made was to suggest hiring a wedding planner, someone who could help us navigate what felt like a more challenging and complicated wedding.
I count my lucky stars for having been referred to Gabrielle Stone of www.stoneeventplanning.com as she turned out to be a great facilitator, mediator, and (gentle) task master when we all needed to turn in work that were reaching its deadlines. Mothers of the bride, Gabrielle is worth her weight in gold!! While I pride myself on being a very detailed person, Gabrielle was even more detailed and kept us to our timelines. We had 178 guests at our wedding and celebratory reception, and I did not find myself worrying about anything over the weekend as I knew that most everything would be well taken care of by Gabrielle and her able assistants. Therefore, after my daughter and now son-in-law and the bridal party walked into the camp’s dining hall after an afternoon of fun camp activities followed by the wedding ceremony, we saw that it got totally transformed into a lovely dinner setting that was elegant though still in keeping with the casualness of the weekend. Stone Event Planning saw to it that all the tables were arranged in the way we asked for and that there was enough dance floor for our guests to dance all night long, which they did. Gabrielle took care of all the vendors’ schedules that weekend and took charge when a change of plans came up unexpectantly three days before the wedding.
Gabrielle is not only a total professional, but also a lovely and easy person to work with. She was 100% reliable, responsible, competent, and creative. She made wonderful referrals to a number of vendors whom we all enjoyed working with. You (in one of the biggest days of your life) will be in excellent hands with Gabrielle!
Instead of thinking back at all the tasks that had to be done, which were many, I will always look back at our family camp wedding with joyous memories of all the fun and social connections that our two families and guests enjoyed over the course of a full weekend, thanks to all the work that Gabrielle and her team provided for us.
