Meet Gabby, the owner of Here & Now Events
Buffalo Wedding Planner Here & Now Events Origin Story
Buffalo wedding planner Here & Now Events had a rather unconventional start in her business. Gabby’s background is in operations, production, and planning. However, it’s an industry totally opposite of weddings! Over the last five years, she worked in custom sheet-metal manufacturing, a heavily male-dominated setting, the opposite of the wedding industry. How did she make the transition into weddings?! Like many, it was while she was planning her own wedding! Even when spending countless hours planning every detail of her big day, she admitted that it “always felt easy”. Knowing this is not a common experience for most stressed brides Gabby knew a skill set like hers would be needed. The burden of planning, booking vendors, laying out colors just came naturally. With a new refreshed passion and a nudge from her husband, Gabby launched Here & Now Events.
Since growing up in a family of small businesses, Gabby recognizes the importance of making a connection. “Small business have such a significant impact on their communities, especially in places like Buffalo. I love the opportunity to be a part of that and to connect with and support all the amazing small businesses in our area! I feel that sometimes we put too much emphasis on weddings as a production, and in a way they certainly are, but I am merging the concepts again of planning the perfect day down to every last detail, but remembering that this day is to celebrate the couple and their love first and foremost.”
