Wedding planner, cupcake enthusiast, and lover of all things romance and weddings.



Hiring Jevettra Gardner of Avila Dawn Events as our wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made. With everything going on in our lives at the time we would have lost our minds if we would have went any other route when planning our wedding. Jevettra had the ability and expertise to help us bring to life the wedding that we envisioned. She was always accessible, flexible and overly willing to do whatever was needed to make our special day perfect. Jevettra is well connected in her industry and have a passion for what she does. She isn’t a “Drill Sergeant” type of planner, she is very approachable with a kindred personality. I highly recommend her to any couple planning their wedding; with Jevettra leading your wedding I’m confident it will be a success.
