Some Fun Facts About You:
Hi, I am the owner of Gillum Event Planners and I can't wait to meet you in person, but until I do, here are a few questions I answered about myself just so you can get to know me first! Stay a while, take a look, read up about the info here and when your ready, give me a call, I look forward to talking to you. Take care and Talk to you soon.
Where is the coolest place you have ever been?
By far that would have to be a little cocktail bar in Paris with my Husband. We had a blast there, probably too much fun, hee, hee but I will always remember how hard I laughed and how good it felt, and the look and the smell of everything around me. It was absolutely amazing!
In the town where you grew up what are the three things that you miss the most?
Wow, that’s a biggie...Well, the first and most important thing would have to be my Nanny (grandmother), she inspired me the most in my life and I miss her terribly, with every fiber of my being, she is no longer on this earth, but in my heart forever, so I guess the next thing would be the huge family reunions we used to have, they were somewhat boring when I was younger, but man what I wouldn't give to have another one, and the next would have to be the family I still have there, I was blessed with the most amazing people in my family, such beautiful people to look up to and love.
Who do you most admire and why?
My daughters, because they are the most amazing young women I know, they are all so unique, beautiful, loving and strong and they all have such awesome spirits and they are absolutely the best things that I have ever done in my life!
Why do you love your job?
Boy, these are some great questions! I love it because it isn’t a job to me. It is something that I almost crave to do....you know how you feel when you wake up and you are so excited to go do something you have looked forward to for a long time? That is how I feel when I am doing what I do! I am absolutely in my element, in my zone, when I am designing, creating, someone’s dream, reality, or theme of what they had envisioned for their event or wedding.
I get tears in my eyes and goose bumps watching the bride and groom set eyes on each other for the first time, corny? Maybe, but that is why I do what I do and why I love it!
What do you specialize in? Day of coordination, full service, week or month of?
I help my brides get that look they envision in their mind, or the idea they have seen somewhere else maybe, but I design a fresh, edgy, current, event with their own unique, personal presence being the focal point and then i wrap my edgy/chic signature to it. Somehow it all works out in my mind! I really like full service events because it gives me a great opportunity to get to know the the couple, their likes, dislikes and their expectations, to create something truly unique, that has a signature truly its own. That’s what I focus on and what I believe sets me apart.
