Love Notes

“Copper River + Co. was my planner for our destination wedding in St. Augustine, Florida. When we got engaged, all we knew was wanted to get married in January in St. Augustine during the Nights of Lights. And being newly engaged with 10 months to put our special day together, I had no idea where to start – and honestly how much goes into planning a wedding. But as the realization of how much I had to do hit me, I fortunately connected with Gabby of Copper River + Co. And we have her to thank for creating the wedding beyond our dreams.

Gabby instantly made us feel at ease from the start of our planning. She’s an endless source of wedding knowledge, a wealth of design insights and an organizational master. We decided to go with the full planning Summit package, and we are so thankful that we had her full services and guidance on hand through the entire planning process and on the big day.

Through designing our wedding vision with Gabby, we felt that every detail for our wedding was intricately crafted around who we are. When choosing a location, it was Gabby who helped us find the perfect place, one that reflected us as a couple in the city we loved. Both the ceremony site and reception spots were wonderfully unique to us, making our day feel like no one else’s.

No detail, big or small, falls through the cracks with Gabby. Things I knew we needed to take care of – transportation, catering, DJ, flowers, etc. – she was on top of finding. And the things I had no idea we needed to think about – and believe me, there’s are a lot of these through the wedding process – she guided us through. She provided comprehensive lists of vendors for us to look at and once we chose our preferred vendors, she managed dealings with them. If we found a vendor outside of those lists, she connected with them ASAP so we could book them. She arranged phone calls and meets with vendors, managed contracts, dealt with any questions we had for vendors and handled all of the day of coordination with vendors. And after the wedding, every single vendor had the same compliment about Copper River + Co.; they had never worked with a wedding planner who made their job so organized, easy, and fun.

For the day of coordination, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. I woke up in the morning and knew it was going to be the perfect day. I knew where to be, I knew who I’d be with and when throughout the day, and I knew the order of events to expect. Gabby’s master timeline that she builds for your day is a bride’s dream. And anything that could possibly come up on the wedding, Gabby has handled. Because I didn’t have to worry about any of the logistics for the day, solve any problems and do any last-minute planning, I was able to simply enjoy every moment of our day. And we did – every moment we felt truly present in because that’s all we needed to focus on.

From the first vendor inquiry to your reception exit, when you choose the Summit package, you get full planning and dedication into every moment for your special day. When we got engaged, it felt like so many brides warned us how stressful and difficult the planning process is – it sounded like this time was one to dread. And our experience on the way to the alter was nothing short of amazing. Because of Gabby, we get to say our planning was actually fun and was filled with memories we will treasure. She made every stage and part of planning feel easy. She made it about us and our unique experience. And ultimately, she made it about our wedding dreams coming to life. We can say, without a doubt, our wedding day was the best day of our lives, and we have Copper River + Co. to thank for designing the most beautiful wedding day we could have imagined.”

Fun facts

How did you get started in the wedding industry?

The places I’ve been and people I’ve met through travel largely influenced me to forge a new path into the wedding planning and design world. For over 6 years, I worked as an Administrator and Project Manager and although I loved my job, I had long felt something was missing. Looking back, I realized how much joy planning and dreaming up the design details of my own intimate destination wedding brought me. With the desire to bring that very same feeling to other couples, I packed up my office (just kidding, we were in the middle of a pandemic) and left the corporate jungle.

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

Yes, we’ll go anywhere your love takes us!

Where do you find your design inspiration?

I love drawing inspiration from nature's landscapes, utilizing Earth elements, tones and textures
