Wow. Where to begin? Gillian made the wedding of our dreams come true. I was hesitant to having a wedding planner. Being independent and decently organized, I thought I could do it on my own. Boy, was I wrong. I had no idea how much went into a wedding and I’m so glad she was there to guide us every step of the way. She handled the communication with all of the vendors, which would have been a bear in and of itself. 8 weeks before our wedding, my husband and I switched states and jobs, and she made the transition seamless; we never had to worry about what was getting done wedding-wise. Any event we plan for the future will definitely be an event that we plan with Gillian. With her hand on things, it’s bound to be a beautiful success!
WOW - where to begin! Gillian was simply amazing! When our daughter became engaged she seriously thought we could do this on our own. We were both pretty organized people so we could do this, right? Wrong! Both of us have very full time jobs and there was no way we could do this alone. Best decision we made was to hire Gillian Marto from Events of a Lifetime. Every step of the way she provided suggestions, and valuable insight and feedback. The wedding was a dream come true and our daughter was thrilled with every aspect of her vision coming to life! Gillian truly acted as a buyers agent if you can imagine buying a house and having representation that has your best interest in mind. She was able to double check details and work with the vendors (photo, floral, DJ caterer and the list goes on) to ensure everything was on point and accurate. As issues came up she was handling each and every one of them. This was all prior and the day of we could enjoy everything and know that the details were handled! I would HIGHLY recommend Gillian to anyone planning an event! We will most certainly be utilizing her expertise as we have more import life events to plan. THANK YOU GILLIAN!
Thank you Gillian Marto of ‘Events of A Lifetime’ for evrtything you did to ensure that our daughter’s destination wedding was such a great success! We loved your hands on approach and eye for detail. In addition you found us an amazing steel band to fit our budget and a wonderful videographer to capture our special day. As most of our friends and family live in different countries, most of our 180 guests travelled to Jamaica for a week of festivities. Several of our family members participated on the day of the wedding and you graciously worked along with them while integrating your talents also helping us all to feel relaxed and enjoy our special time together. You are a very classy lady with wonderful people skills. I truly feel that this is a most important attribute because at the end of the day we all enjoyed a stress free wedding full of only beautiful memories. Without a doubt, you are the best!
Thank you so very much for your kind words. Working with you, Jessica, and Jessie was truly a wonderful experience and I enjoyed every second of it. The best part of what I do is being able to share in such meaningful days in a person's life and seeing everything come together for this wonderful occasion was incredible. I loved working with and meeting the entire family and I just love when my clients become friends. If there is anything that I can help with in the future, please be sure to let me know. All the best, Gillian
We want to take this time to say a very special thank you to Gillian Marto for her hard work in helping to make our dream wedding come true! It wouldn't have been the epic movie it was without her. We love you dearly! If you are looking for a phenomenal wedding and events planner I highly recommend her... The absolute best!
Gillian was professional, knowledgeable and made sure all details were taken care of to ensure that every thing went smoothly. We had a very non-traditional wedding and party which she took an interest in and helped us with planning a truly unique event, which included catering, decorating, lighting and furniture. She had great ideas for our reception and was there to make sure it all went as planned, alleviating our stress. Gillian was extremely competent and responsive to our calls and made sure all of the details were taken care of well in advance. She was a great pleasure to work with!
When you have no clue how to plan the best party of your life, hire someone who does! Gillian is worth every penny for the PEACE of mind and the AMAZING decor and professionalism she provides! And, a wonderful person and personality to boot! She is easy to work with and she will amaze your socks off!

I will recommend her highly for wedding or any event planning.
I look forward to work with Gillian and Events of a Lifetime!
Everyone is Gifted,Most people just never open their package . Not my Gillian from a child she extended effort and used the gifts within she has the winners edge.
It is always great working with Gillian! She is a very detailed oriented wedding planner and she knows how to keep things moving. What I like is she understands the fine line and differentiates between keeping the wedding professionals on point and dictating what needs to be done. She always makes us look like a Star and I know her brides are very very happy with her event after event. Thank you Gillian for a great job! I see the behind the scenes and you are always working it!
At first we were not sure if we needed a wedding planner. It did not take long for us to discover that we definitely needed more than just guidance for a once in a life time event like this! We knew from the first meeting with Gillian that her flair and attention to every detail along with her caring but professional approach was what would be crucial for the success of our daughter's wedding. It got to the point where no decision was made without her input! My daughter loved working with her too and she always made her feel that this was her special day.
The wedding turned out to be one of the most memorable events for not only our family but all of the attendees.. Thanks to Gillian and her fabulous vendors, we were able to fully enjoy the planning process and most importantly enjoy the wedding day confident that we were in good hands! Thank you so much!
