Hello there!

Hello there!

Since the website recently got updated, I figured this would be a great time to re-introduce myself!

My name is Gabriela. I’m not the typical woman who has always dreamed of her wedding day since she was a little girl, I was never interested in weddings at all – until I went to one. From that day on, I was obsessed.


I immediately jumped into the wedding world and started an internship at the Delray Beach Marriott where I learned the basics from what a BEO and Chiavari chairs were to properly calculating a wedding timeline. From there, I was lucky to have extended my experience by working and interning with a few luxury wedding hotels and celebrity wedding planners. My dreams came true when I spent a year in Orlando working with Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings and Disney Meetings and Conventions.


Although hands-on training is very valued, I am eternally grateful for my certifications. With a bachelor’s degree in Business and a Certificate of Meeting and Event Planning from Florida Internation University, I was able to successfully start Gabriela Sousa Events. As I focused more on weddings, I became a Certified Wedding Planner through The Bridal Society and Lovegevity’s Wedding Planning Institute.


Now, if you know me, you know that weddings isn’t just what I do- I eat, breath, and sleep weddings. I’m a hopeless romantic, so I am madly in love with love. I live to see the father’s face when he sees his daughter in her dress on her wedding day, I get butterflies when I give the bride’s dress one final fluff before she walks down the aisle, and I still tear up during the bride and groom’s first dance as a married couple. It’s seeing the couple truly enjoying their big day along with their friends and family that makes me fall more in love with weddings every single time.
