Sheila Callaway: 2016
“Don't hesitate to make Gail your girl when planning your special day. Choosing our home as a big part of the venue, I was concerned that I would be too distracted to truly enjoy the day. She tirelessly worked to transform our home, handling every detail so that I could relax and relish in the beauty she created. Working and reworking (because of a major storm), she smiled through it all. I cannot thank Gail enough or recommend her more strongly. You'll not regret it!”
Daniels, WV (Mother-of-bride)


Heather Arrington Serra:2016

“Gail is a miracle worker! If you're even considering a coordinator, reach out to her. My husband and I live in North Carolina and wanted a destination wedding in the mountains of West Virginia where he is from. We chose an old coal bath house on a beautiful 500-acre property in the middle of nowhere. There was no internet or cell service, we had to bring in our own water, and it didn't even have an official address! Getting vendors and guests up to our spot seemed like a logistical nightmare, but Gail made it happen! She exceeded our expectations in everything she did. Everyone, including my husband and I were blown away by the décor. Our wedding day was more beautiful than we had even imagined and we are so grateful for all she did!”

"Gail Ray is amazing! She made our wedding day so much more than we could have ever dreamed. When she says full service event planning, she means it. Hire Gail and worry about nothing! And most of all, my husband and I gained a great friend." Working with Gail has made our wedding experience so much fun. She handles everything when using her for full event planning. Our wedding is in 10 days and as the bride, I am not stressed and panicking of the million things needing done, because Gail has taken care of everything we need. She truly was a God send. And we love her so much!”

"I totally give this lady 5 stars!! She did my one and only son's wedding last August. As the mother of the groom, you don't always feel included. Gail made me feel as included as the bride and her mother!! The wedding was way beyond expectations!! Anyone having any kind of special occasion, this is THE lady to call. Thank you, Gail, for making "our" day so special!!"

“Gail has been a wonderful help to me in my real estate business.

Dee Dewana Sizemore, Women’s Resource Center: 2014

“Gail Ray is amazing! She recently did the event decor and photo backdrop for Women's Resource Center's GNO 2014 fundraising event "Black and White Affair, with a Flair". I have been overseeing WRC fundraising events for the last 5 years (3 as an employee) and NEVER has one of our events been so beautiful. And the reduction in my stress level on event day was worth a million bucks to me personally! Thank you, Gail, for both accepting the challenge to do this event on a VERY LOW budget and for doing it so wonderfully.”
