Extraordinary Weddings for

an Exceptional Value

Arielle Gavin, Owner of Wedded Perfection

Hi, I'm Arielle, owner of Wedded Perfection.
 

I started this company with the belief that at the very least, every couple deserves to have a wedding coordinator to ensure that they can be guests at their own wedding.
 

So many unforeseen things can go wrong at a wedding or any event. Multiple questions get asked from guests and vendors alike. Little details get forgotten or pushed aside because of time. Time goes by so quickly when you're having fun, that special moments you wanted to have, get lost in the shuffle. Trust me, it is so much better to have a point person to take care of all of the details that you put into planning your wedding so that you and your guests can just have fun.

What if the wedding planner paid for themselves?

Let's talk about the elephant in the room. Weddings are expensive, and the first vendor couples think they don't need or can't afford is the wedding planner. But what if the wedding planner could pay for themselves? With that goal in mind, I started searching and vetting the best vendors around. I not only looked for amazing florists and delicious bakers, but for the vendors who didn't charge outrageous prices for the same service I could get elsewhere. I created a team of vendors that I knew I could always trust and always call on to be phenomenal. We work with these wedding partners a lot and because we bring them business our couples receive fantastic discounts. We also know the best areas to save money and cut costs, because we have been doing this for a long time and we are professional planners.

Professional Wedding Planner

Arielle Gavin and Bride

Not only can I call myself a professional wedding planner because I have been planning weddings for almost a decade, but I actually have the degree to back it up. Yep, you can actually get a Bachelor's of Science in Hospitality Management specializing in Event Coordination. A degree I earned at the University of Central Florida Rosen College. There, I gained the knowledge and experience I needed to create, plan, organize and coordinate all the details that go into planning events and weddings both large and small, including a range of affairs from intimate events and parties for 15 to large multi-day, multi-location events for over 3,000.


I have worked with various vendors in every part of the field, including photographers, entertainment specialists, florists, decorators, and venue managers to learn about the inside of the industry from their perspective. I combine this hard-earned knowledge and passion with my own personal style to create an unparalleled service to others. Owning this company gives me the chance to use my creativity and the ability to give my clients the full attention to detail they deserve. Bringing my event coordination background to the wedding industry lets our clients bring their vision to life.

Serving Southeast Michigan and Central Ohio

I am originally from Miami, Florida, but I started Wedded Perfection in 2013 when my husband and I moved to Columbus, Ohio. I figured it was a new area, and a new opportunity to put my skills to use. My first wedding I worked alone, and after that I realized, I needed a team! I started out hiring college students to be interns. Some of them grew with the company and took training courses to became lead day-of coordinators. As the company grew I hired assistants who had a background in the events industry and showed real enthusiasm for the chance to learn and develop their skills in the wedding industry.

 

When my daughter was born I had to hand over my company to the team I had created in the hopes that I had trained them to deliver the same service that our couples had come to expect. They exceeded my expectations. So, when it came time to move to Michigan, I knew I had a team I could trust to deliver exceptional service to our couples in Ohio. I had to start the business over in Michigan, and so I once again started my hunt for the best of the best in the wedding industry.

 

We once again can proudly say that we have an amazing team of invaluable vendors, and staff that works with us to help our couple's wedding plans come to life. I still personally take care of the planning logistics, while my fantastic team is on the ground attending meetings, setting up and tearing down venues, and coordinating during the events. I couldn't do it with out them!
