While coordinating my housewarming, Take One Events provided me with the best service I've had in a long time! Gwenette Rayford provides an uncanny mix of professionalism and sincerity that actually makes you feel like family. She is unique and does extensive research about your occasion to ensure that you have the most up-to-date/ trendy experience possible ( I didn't know there were so many fun housewarming games lol). Her ability to think outside of the box transformed a simple housewarming into a lasting memory. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of any event coordination. Thank you Gwenette! :-) More...

Take One Events provided excellent customer service, innovative design concepts, and affordable rates for my events. I had the pleasure of working with planner Gwenette Rayford for my wedding shower, team banquet, and a bridal shower. All three events were elegant, modern, and very well executed. I would recommend this company for your next event! More...

I planned a Nerdy 30 birthday and asked for a nerdy themed candy bar. It was absolutely amazing! Better than I could have even thought to put together myself. The candy and the decorations were spot on and everyone commented on how cute it all was! I loved it! More...

Take One Events took GREAT care of me and my bridesmaids for my surprise bridal shower! I was only told the date and attire, but they were armed with a binder, different themes and ideas, a timeline, and everything to fit within their budget. The event greatly exceeded my expectations :) I highly recommend her for your next event! More...

From start to finish, Mrs. Gwen was amazing! I never felt overwhelmed during the planning process, and with her guidance she helped me from steering astray. She took notes on everything that I imagined and made it into a reality! Her and her team made my wedding day and reception day very memorable. My guest were even complimenting them. Thank you again Take One Events, and a special thank you to Mrs. Gwen. More...

I was the singer/guitarist for this wedding. I played the Pre-Reception cocktail. Gwen was professional and on top of her game from start to finish. I've played over 400 weddings/receptions and worked with a lot of coordinators, she's a good one! More...

Gwen with Take One Events was amazing. She was very helpful, responsive and kept us on schedule. You don't realize how beneficial it is to have a Wedding planner until the last few weeks before the wedding. It was very important to us that we had a wedding planner who was passionate about her job, and that is Gwen. I would recommend her to my family or friends.

When planning a wedding, you have to be at your best when meeting every vendor because everyone is trying to nickel and dime you.

Having someone you trust is the most important aspect of planning a wedding in my opinion. We completely trusted Gwen from the start. We felt through the entire process, that she was advising us and making decisions for us, that had our best interest at hand. Anyone she referred us to as far as vendors was excellent as well.

In so many other encounters with vendors, we would either get upsold or referred to others who would charge outrageous prices.

She also kept us very organized. She asked us numerous questions along the way of things we didn't even consider. If it was something we didn't think we could handle, she would take it and run with it.

On the actual wedding day, Gwen and team were very organized and I was at complete ease minus the nervousness of actually getting married. Gwen and team also stepped in and helped in areas they did not have to like assisting the caterer.

I would recommend Take One Events to anyone who was planning a wedding!

Gwen and Rita were an absolute pleasure to work with. I was traveling from Boston to Atlanta with very little understanding as to how vendors interacted with each other, and Take One Events not only executed and managed the entire event, they were the glue. They say, Southern Hospitality is one of the finest, and Take One Events made sure we were well taken care of. We were the DJs of the wedding, and because we were traveling by flight, we received texts days in advance, before we took off, when we landed, and even after we checked into our hotel. For a wedding planning team to care so much about the vendors will go to show how much they care about their clients and events. Atlanta's Gem, Take One Events! More...

WE WERE THE FLORIST FOR THIS WEDDING AND CANNOT SPEAK HIGHLY ENOUGH OF GWEN AND STAFF.
VERY ORAGNIZED AND KEPT ALL VENDORS WORKING THE EVENT INFORMED IN A VERY TIMELY MANNER OF ALL DETAILS
AND CHANGES AS THEY HAPPENED, PRIOR TO AND UP TO WEDDING DAY. I RARELY SEE THAT KIND OF FOLLOW UP AND FOLLOW THRU HAPPEN AND IT WAS REALLY APPRECIATED. AND BESIDES WAS JUST A REALLY NICE PERSON ! :)
HIGHLY RECCOMEND IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A PLANNER/COORDINATOR.
THANKS AGAIN GWEN! ROSS THORESON-DESIGN MANAGER- TUCKER FLOWER SHOP TUCKER GA.

It was such a pleasure working with Gwenette. She brings great ideas to table and she also has a great level of professionalism. She'll work incredibly hard to make sure your wishes are carried out. You'll figure out quite early in the relationship that she has your back. The day of our wedding, I didn't have a single worry. I got to the venue and our special day was kept free of stress. It allowed for me to truly focus on what mattered the most – celebrating the love with friends and family.

When you work with Gwenette, you'll feel the sincerity – I know she loves what she does and it is obvious by the care she puts into your special day.

Gwen is the best wedding planner I have ever met; she makes the day special with added touches of her own. Her attention-to-detail is evident and reflects in the pride she takes to make the bride's day quite memorable. Guests praised the wedding and how special they felt. The hotel venue planners also commented positively about Gwen's attention-to-detail. My daughter's worries went away the minute Gwen began to plan and execute her wedding wishes. Gwen's the one to hire for every wedding if you want it executed flawlessly. More...
