As we marvel at how successful our daughter’s beautiful wedding turned out, we cannot help but think of the best decision we had made, which was to hire a wedding planner/coordinator named Candice Gurr of Signature Weddings by Candice. At first, we were arranging everything ourselves until reality set in. We were becoming increasingly overwhelmed and frazzled with all the work and endless details. And then, Candice stepped in for us. Magically, she instantly lifted the weight off our shoulders. Her soothing and calming voice coupled with her immediate understanding of our needs and wishes were a welcome relief. From thereon, we were continuously amazed by her professionalism, attention to details, skill at coordinating with vendors, and keeping us updated so that everyone was on the same page. Finally, on the evening of the rehearsal and the wedding day, Candice’s presence and guidance made everything flow very smoothly. The entire event was a huge success! We received many complimentary remarks, including wonderful comments from our former neighbor and meteorologist with WSB TV, Karen Minton. We would recommend Candice in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a wedding planner/coordinator!

Candice is great! She is extremely organized and knows just what to do and when to do it! She was the glue that put my wedding day together. Everything on my wedding day went smoothly and I owe that to Candice! I would definitely recommend her to a friend looking for an organized, professional, and extremely nice person to coordinate their special day!
Candice is absolutely amazing!! I had no worries all day as she took care of everything and every detail. I would HIGHLY recommend her to any bride!!

Thank you, thank you!! We both had such an amazing day and wish we were doing it again this weekend! Both of us were thoroughly surprised by how unstressed we were and how awesome the party was. Thank you so much for your help with everything. We know it was a lot of moving pieces and we couldn't have gotten them all together without you!

Candice is an awesome planner! She is very detail oriented and organized. I honestly couldn't have done it without her. This is her passion and not just a job and her work shows it hands down. I would recommend her to anyone who is getting married. My day was perfect!!!
Thank you so much for making Debbie's day run so smoothly. We spent about two hours on the phone yesterday going over every little detail, and one of the things we both agreed on was that you were a huge, important, and indispensable asset. At first Debbie didn't think she would need someone to help coordinate and keep things on track, but it was apparent throughout the night that you were "Johnny-on-the-Spot" and worth your weight in gold. Plus, you really helped keep Debbie calm and focused!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Thank you again for making my job super easy yesterday at Debbie's wedding. You are on the ball and just lovely to work with. I like to surround myself with people who do an amazing job!
It was such a pleasure working with you last weekend. I appreciate how attentive you were throughout the weeks before and on the day of. I am glad to have met you and hope we are able to work together more often in the future!

Hi Brides, Candice of Signature Weddings by Candice recently did my wedding and I could not be happier! Candice is very talented at managing time, details and making it all seem effortless. My guests commented on well she managed the flow of our wedding without anyone feeling rushed. She has the personality to meet people and make friends quickly so she meshed into the event seamlessly. I would highly recommend Candice for any venue or wedding large or small. Thanks!!
Candice was our event planner and was amazing from start to finish. Every time I was worried or stressed about anything, she always advised me not to worry and she would take care of everything, and that she did! She was very patient with me and all of my changes, especially near the end. I love the fact that she reminded me of the "little things" that needed to get finished, things that we so easily forget. She attended vendor meetings with me, which put me at ease, because I didn't always know what questions to ask, or how to answer their questions. Another big thing for me was that she thoroughly went over my contracts, and saved me a lot of money and also saved me from a bad vendor by looking over his contract. She was always there when I needed her, and quickly responded to emails. I honestly don't know what I would've done without her. With her organization and expertise, she made our vision of our dream wedding come to life. I would highly recommend Candice for you special day, she is the best of the best!
Candice was amazing! We were all so glad that we hired her to coordinate our wedding. She was very patient (with me especially) and with the family and wedding party. She was kind and honest which was very important. She made sure during the wedding day that my husband and I knew where we were supposed to be and when. All of the vendors were happy with her communication and coordination of the walk through, arrival times, etc. Overall, I would recommend Candice for your wedding planning/ coordination needs!
I actually have a picture of this – Candice always re-assured me that things were running smoothly. The cost of hiring a wedding planner is an excellent value to ensure the day goes perfectly and you can enjoy your wedding!
Candice made sure that every detail was exactly how we had imagined! Candice gave us tips on everything to help save me time, money and possible headaches. She helped me to realize that the small things weren't for me to worry about and she had taken care of everything. We had some issues with our venue and Candice made herself available to me two weeks before the big day to find us a new venue. She told me not to worry and helped me with the whole process. Candice's help was priceless. She worked within my budget and was still able to give me the wedding reception of my dreams.
Candice was truly a blessing to us and most definitely to me, the bride. She was there for me from start to finish! I have no clue where I would be or what my wedding might have turned out to be without her! Candice told me to relax and she would take care of everything. She took away all the worries and stress of what planning a wedding entails and not to mention… she dances! LOL I don't know where I would be without my planner! She's an excellent planner, great listener and very well organized! She's all about the needs of her Brides and Grooms! I love you and thank you Candice!
Candice with Signature Weddings by Candice was a blessing! She was always on top of everything, very organized, professional and caring about our wedding planning. My husband and I believe we made the best choice by picking her to plan our special day! And after all our wedding was amazing…the details were perfect!!! If I had to do it all over again, I would still pick her!
I couldn't have wished for a more perfect wedding, even with the zipper incident. You captured my vision just like I had imagined it. Most of all, Rick had that "WOW" moment, I so dearly wanted. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Everything looked so beautiful and I think I've instilled a love of purple in everyone there.
Thanks again Candice for making our wedding the best ever.
Candice was my wedding coordinator, and she was absolutely amazing. I was completely stressed out, working a full time job and trying to plan a wedding for 300 guests at a private location. My MIL found Candice, and she was the answer to all of our prayers! She kept me right on track, and made the whole process fun and stress-free. She reminded me of all the "small things" I wouldn't have even thought about. My only regret is that we didn't find her sooner! Candice is very professional and definitely gets the job done, but I felt like I had gained a new friend at the same time. She was a true saving grace to our family, and I will forever sing her praises!
Candice of Signature Weddings by Candice was wonderful. She did a beautiful and great job for us for our son's and new daughter's wedding. I couldn't have been more pleased with everything. The wedding and reception were wonderful and were coordinated perfectly, nothing went wrong at all! Would definitely recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or a big party, she is great and dedicated to her work.
-Dianna Waldroup, Mother of the Groom
We were so fortunate to find Candice Gurr of Signature Weddings by Candice. From the moment we signed the contract to the closing of the reception, she provided excellent advice and support. Her knowledge of the wedding process and her attention to details greatly reduced our stress in planning such a big event. And the ceremony and reception were beautiful!
-Carol Carver, Mother of the Bride
As the mother of the bride, I was afraid that because of all the last minute details, set up times, and final coordination of meeting with vendors I would not be able to enjoy the day of the wedding with my only daughter. Candice and Joy took over the last details of set up, meeting with vendors, and plus the flow of the evening that I was able to not only enjoy the day of the wedding but the week before the wedding. It was a tremendous burden that was lifted and that she took on.
Although we made all of the plans, Candice was instrumental in orchestrating all of our vendors to make sure that our vision was intact and fulfilled to our expectations. She also provided valuable foresight that only her experience could of prepared us for – this included checklists, last minute changes and emergencies that sprang up, and most importantly – she took care of the bride, the groom, and the whole wedding party so that everything ran smoothly and we were able to enjoy the special, once in a lifetime day.
The ability to let go of all the little details into such experienced hands relieved both the bride and myself to just bask in the excitement of the upcoming nuptials. I was utterly amazed at how relaxed we both were. In fact there are pictures of my daughter, the bride, just chilling out in a chair waiting to walk down the aisle – I actually think that her calmness helped her 8 bridesmaids and father be calm! This would not have happened if I had to spend most of that day and the week before the wedding doing all the running around and details that Candice and Joy took over.
I would (and am) highly recommend Candice and Signature Weddings by Candice to anyone in the Atlanta area looking for a wedding planner. Candice wants to see the bride's wedding vision fulfilled right down to the smallest detail. She is so easy to work with and her personality is so warm and inviting- she truly puts you at ease. We used Candice as "the day of planner" but she did much more than we bargained for before the wedding day. She came with us on those last meetings with the vendors and helped us with the "flow" of events and making those final last minute decisions that you had not even thought of – and believe me, we thought of everything (or at least we thought so until Candice opened our eyes). So even if you are planning a DIY wedding, that last week and day of should be yours to enjoy so hire Candice to help you finish your plans – what a lifesaver!
-Kim Thompson, Mother of the Bride
Candice was wonderful and a great help for our reception. She took all the stress away from us and handled everything without any complaints or negativity. She was friendly and helpful, and without her I do not think our reception would have turned out nearly as beautiful or fun. Thank you Candice for EVERYTHING!
A pleasure to work with and took so much strain off of me! Stood up to my family and his for our best interest and worked so hard to give us the perfect, stress-free day! Thanks!
Candice is amazing. She is organized, creative, and sympathetic. I have already recommended her to several friends.
Working with Candice made planning my wedding in only 4 weeks unbelievably easy! Her attention to detail is wonderful and I will always use her services for any other "special" occasions that I might have. I highly recommend her!
My 70th birthday party is a day I will never forget! Candice thought of everything from the smallest to largest details. Incorporating my childhood pictures into the centerpieces of each table was so special to me. I will trust Candice at Signature Weddings by Candice with all my upcoming events!
When my husband and I first started to plan our wedding we were practically doing it on our own. We were really stressed out and didn't know where to go next. We finally decided that it was too much for us to handle, and that is when we found Candice. She was very quick to contact us and set up a meeting. After the first meeting with her we instantly felt relieved. Candice pieced our whole wedding together within a months time. Candice called all of the vendors and scheduled all of our meetings and handled everything for us. She made sure that everything was done the way that we wanted, not the way anybody else wanted it. She coordinated everything, and was at all of the appointments with us. She was right on top of everything. I never doubted for a second that we were going to have the wedding as we envisioned it. She was very professional and very accommodating. When you are planning your wedding it is nice to have a great wedding planner so that you can enjoy it. By the end of this experience we not only had a wedding planner, but had also made a great friend. My husband and I loved Candice Gurr and could not have asked for a better wedding planner. I give her my highest recommendation! Thank you Candice.
Candice Gurr of Signature Weddings by Candice was the nicest, most professional, calming person I have had the pleasure to work with. Candice took care of the wedding rehearsal dinner for my husband and me. She was always available by phone or e-mail to talk with if I had a question or concern. Candice tried very hard to keep the costs down, researching where vases were that we desired, and where the best flowers could be found. The flowers were beautiful, commented on by everyone who attended. Candice remained at the event until closing, waiting on party goers who might need food or a drink. It was a delight to work with Candice, and if I ever have another big event like this one, without any reservation, I will call on Candice.
