Meet Holly Gray!
That’s merely my last name, not my M.O.
Well, Hello! My name is Holly Gray. I’m a native Los Angeleno. Yes, we do exist! I am honest, passionate, straightforward, hardworking, and yes, a jazzy weirdo. Sequins and sunshine are in my DNA and I believe everything is better with a smile.
I am a second-generation wedding planner. I learned from the best, my mother! My training includes stage management for live theater and television, 18 years of improv comedy training and touring, a culinary degree, and time in the trenches of the hospitality field.
Being an all-around expert in the wedding and event field fills me with pride. With a dash of sass, a hearty laugh and a splash of bright pink lipstick there you have it! ANYTHING but Gray.
I am NOT your average wedding planner. I don't dress in all black or carry a walkie talkie. I’m a snazzy extrovert with a get-it-done-and-make-it-look-easy strategy and a you-do-you-boo attitude. The events I plan and design are out of the box and always one of a kind!
I am NOT trying to be the wedding planner for everyone. I take on a select number of clients per year to give them the personalized attention they deserve. I want couples to look at my work and either say, "She is the ONE" or "WTF! No way, Jose!" Either option is perfectly acceptable.
On a personal note, I have two Boston terriers, a very tall German boyfriend and cannot keep a houseplant alive. I love La Croix, chunky necklaces, and Hanson. In my spare time, you can find me volunteering with rescue animals, leading networking groups, napping, and watching crime dramas.
ANYTHING BUT GRAY EVENTS COUPLES....
Our mission at Anything But Gray Events is planning and designing colorful celebrations for creative clients with ingenuity, originality, and creativity.
Our clients think outside the box, dream big and live life to the fullest. They aren't looking for the "typical" but rather the "totally us." They are free-spirited individuals who thrive on big personality, bold designs, and personal self-expression. Passion and confidence run through their veins and are always authentically themselves. Our couples understand how important hospitality and unique experiences are to their guests and in their own lives. They love animals, a witty sitcom, champagne brunch and always tip their servers well. They enjoy the finer things in life but still love a late-night Target run. Our couples value and appreciate people's time, energy and skills. They are gourmet foodies at heart but will never say no to a Costco hot dog with all the toppings! They sing the loudest at karaoke, tell pun jokes at will and are the last ones to leave the dance floor. They envision their wedding as a way to express who they are as a couple while showcasing their kick-ass love to family and friends in a one-of-a-kind way.
Anything But Gray Events donates a percentage of each sale to Best Friends Animal Society. With nationwide outreach with animal shelters and rescue groups, BFAS promotes pet adoption, no-kill animal rescue, and spay-and-neuter practices. As a rescue animal owner myself, I couldn’t be more inspired by the good work BFAS is doing, nationwide.
