Who we are

How We Work

Our team prides itself on our history of making the entire planning process enjoyable and stress-free from the beginning stages through the end of the event and wrapping up afterwards. Whether you are a Bride, Groom, Minister, Parent, Civic Leader, Business Owner or Employee, GiGi's and What An Event! will quickly become your best friend!​

  • He Loves Me4:13
  • Forever Yours5:10
  • I've Got What You Need3:42

We start by taking the time to get to know you and your event. Our first goal is that we will develop YOUR heart and vision for your event. It is important that we become familiar with your style and tastes so that we can make sure that everything that we do represents you.

We help to select vendors and then work closely with those vendors so that you are not bothered with the details. By the day of the event, you are free to enjoy yourself and your guests, secure in he knowledge that we have it all under control.

We maintain timelines and help to keep the event on budget. If necessary, we can help to incorporate fundraising aspects into your corporate or non-profit event plan. We work with all vendors on behalf of the client to maintain a central point of contact and ensure continuity and a smooth flow at all times.


Darren Jefferey & Family

"Kimm Gaines was absolutely amazing!!!"

She was so easy to work with and explained
everything to the fullest. She understood how important our family and culture was to us and worked with us to include these things in our ceremony. She sat with us at our initial meeting and really got to understand what a Quinceanera religious and social event entailed. Kimm truly understood how big this celebration would be for the ministry in which it was being held, along with how important this celebration would be to our family and out of town guests.  Since the event my wife and I have received so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was, the entire flow of the ceremony, and how warm, friendly and knowledgeable Kimm and her team were. Kimm knows her stuff through bringing appropriate ideas and walks you through the entire process essential in bringing every endeavor she undertakes a successful and memorable event.


To Kimberly Gaines for making our Quinceanera religious and social event such a memorable time for us!
