My bride and I came to you with a very long list of highly unique requests, for our multi-tented wedding to be held at home in connecticut. With a unique setting, some humorous parking challenges, 80+ guests, live music, and a host of other complexities, you orchestrated a masterful event, where every guest left raving about the experience. For this and so much more, THANK YOU!

We would like to... acknowledge Gayle and the amazing work she did for us. In a nutshell, our company put on a rather large, 3-day event for our customers from around the world in Greenwich, CT this spring. It required a tremendous amount of planning, details, and logistics. No easy task. Gayle went above and beyond the call of duty. She was a mission critical piece of the puzzle in ensuring that this big event went off without a hitch. The feedback we received from our attendees was overwhelmingly, off-the-charts, positive. Gayle is a consummate professional—intelligent, calm and focused with laser like precision on getting the job done right. Gayle did such a remarkable job that we’re working with her again on the same event next year!

What can I say about Gayle, wonderful, amazing, a hero! Honestly words are not enough. Gayle was our wedding month- of- coordinator. We wanted a smaller (100ppl) back yard- type wedding, very "diy". How hard can that be right? We thought we had it all together until the moment we sat down with Gayle and realized we weren't quite there. The amount of behind the scenes work, moving parts, and machinery that goes into making a wedding happen takes an army, for our wedding. that was Gayle and her partner. Not only did she provide a timeline, endless communication between our vendors, supplies, and decor but her and her partner provided the love and labor to piece our day together. She went above and beyond our expectations. 10/10 recommend!

Gayle is amazing!!! She has hosted two events for me, and my clients and I were nothing other than thrilled! Gayle has a real attention to detail. She's very creative & engaging and puts her all into everything she does. She researches thoroughly and she comes up with the least expensive options possible, and gives you plenty of choice: The end result is WOW! I have been so pleased with the results that I have already added a third Events by Gayle event to the calendar: Hire Gayle, you won't be disappointed!

I love working with Gayle from Events by Gayle. She has done so many events at our Pavilions, but one that stands out in my mind is Callen & Rich's Wedding at Jacky Durrell Pavilion. Gayle totally transformed our pavilion to fit these guests's specifications and the results were truly beautiful. Gayle can walk into an empty event space and has no problem envisioning beautiful parties, that can be as low-key or glamorous as you like! Easy to work with, prompt and professional... looking forward to many future events with Events by Gayle!

Events by Gayle, in conjunction with Fairfield County Wedding Concierge, put on a fabulous Bridal Fête in which we were the proud sponsor of the Grand Prize Giveaway, and participated in the Fête. The event was wonderful, and a great time was had by all vendors and attendees.

Gayle has been instrumental in helping me and my fiance plan our destination wedding in April 2017. We are from the New York area and I knew I wanted a beach wedding. I originally set my sights on NC and tried to research myself. I soon found myself overwhelmed and reached out to Gayle for help. She helped us find venues that suited our taste, while also showing us options we hadn't considered before. We finally settled on a wonderful location in Jacksonville FL and I could not be more thrilled. So far we have taken one trip to Florida to secure the venue and other vendors. Gayle made appointments for us and sent us an itinerary that made the whole process seamless and left us more time to enjoy the sunshine! As we finish up the remaining details, I look forward to continuing to work with Gayle to plan the perfect wedding. Gayle is friendly, flexible and accomodating, with an abundance of resources and great ideas! I would highly recommend her to anyone for both local and destination events!

Gayle Szuchman is an amazing event planner ! You can see photos of my event (on Facebook), of my son's Bar Mitzvah, with the Fedora hat logo that Gayle helped create. It was a magical party with no detail missed and went off without a single hitch, incredible for an event of such size and so many things to be included. I dont know why I haven't used her for everything I have ever planned, organized, thoughtful, helpful, Big giant Wow!

It was a pleasure working with you! Thank you for making everything go so smoothly.  ...The guests really enjoyed themselves and the set up you planned and implemented definitely contributed to this.  If this becomes an annual event, which I think it will, I look forward to working with you again next summer!

I would never have been able to do this without you!  You really made a tremendous positive difference in the planning and carrying out of this party at a difficult venue.  Your patience and perseverance....was crucial in arriving at the wedding day in such fine form....I can’t thank you enough for what you did for us!

Gayle helped me with a surprise corporate retirement party. She did an excellent job. She kept me on task making sure that everything got done on time or ahead of time. She also made some great suggestions while always being respectful of my ideas. My party was a great success and I give a lot of the credit to Gayle!!

Hiring Gayle as our wedding planner was the best decision I ever made. With only 6 months to plan, we definitely needed help and decided to hire Gayle for month-of services. Both she and her assistant  Morgan were a pleasure to work with. Even though Gayle was contracted for the month-of, she still made herself available to help with questions throughout the 6 months. She was extremely organized,responsive, and on top of everything. As a type “A” person, I often micromanage, but none of that was necessary with Gayle. It was a wonderful feeling to be able to let go and know that she had everythingunder control. Gayle not only efficiently managed our wedding, but she’s an expert at putting out fires. Two weeks before the big day, and unbeknownst to us, my DJ’s company was undergoing updates to their telephone system and website. I had been trying to get in touch with them with no luck and started to panic. I called Gayle and she jumped right into action. She called, emailed, and texted relentlessly until someone responded and explained the situation. She also made sure someone provided her with emergency contact information and direct contact information for our DJ. She was professional and her efforts were indefatigable. During the next two weeks, she coordinated last minute logistics with all of our vendors and made sure everything was ready to run smoothly on the big day. She also worked great with my family members who helped with the wedding too. I cannot imagine having had our wedding without her help. If you are looking for someone with expertise for any size event, look no further than Events by Gayle!!

THANK YOU so much for both of your help!! We could not have done it without you. If anything went wrong, I didn't know about it :) Everyone had such lovely things to say about the day and you and Morgan were the glue that held it all together!! You (and Morgan) were amazing and an integral part of our day going well!!  So many thanks!!


Kimberly & Gerrit


Dear Gayle, I want to thank you so much. Your professionalism and down to earth attitude made me feel very comfortable. Everyone commented how fun and unique the party was. You are a brilliant planner and so much fun to work with, can't wait to plan something else with you!!!

Thank you and thank you for the services.  I couldn't be any more pleased with everything.  My daughter was totally amazed stating "this is amazing."  I received many text and emails on what a wonderful shower, so different and such a great idea with the wine tasting.  Wine selection was fabulous . Everyone loved them.  It was perfect!  Great wine, delicious food and plenty of it, great venue, great weather what more could I ask for.

Gayle assisted me with my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. I needed her at the event site to set-up the decorations and oversee the vendors, including the caterer. She also coordinated a brunch for me at my home the next day. She supervised the caterer and the set-up for me that day so I could relax and enjoy my guests. She is reliable, creative, and a wonderful addition to my party needs!
