Gina + Jeff

Commander’s Mansion Wedding

Watertown, Massachusetts


Gina and Jeff will always have a special place in my heart. Not only are they an incredible couple with such an amazing, positive energy, but they were (yes, both!) my college advisors, and I credit them with teaching me almost everything I know about planning events. So imagine the honor when Gina texted me and asked if I’d consider being their day of coordinator for their October wedding. This was a huge honor for Contagious Events.

Gina and Jeff hired us as their month of coordinator – we jumped right in and started attending their final vendor meetings, tying up loose ends and identifying areas that needed some extra attention. They had a lot of vendors involved in their day, so we began by building out timelines and learning how to best accommodate each vendor’s needs so there would be no issues on the wedding day.

We loved the details they so clearly spent time on, including choosing the perfect processional song (literally, as soon as I Choose You by Sara Bareilles came through the speakers, their guests smiled ear to ear – it was so cool to witness!) – their ceremony was absolutely magical: performed by a close friend of theirs, the ceremony included an Irish Hand-Fasting Ceremony. They also had a special Red Sox pillow for the rings. These moments and details did not go unnoticed – tears of joy and happiness flowed throughout the ceremony.
