My partner and I are SO HAPPY we decided to hire Gala Events for our day of coordination. Alegria was such a blessing in our experience. I am getting teary even as I write this, thinking of her support. We are a queer couple. Alegria's support and expertise made the path to our wedding day manageable. She was responsive and loving about our concerns related to potential homophobia we might experience through our process. We never once felt othered or treated differently as a queer couple, something we are sensitive to. My spouse is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, and Alegria was honoring and respectful.  Alegria was the calm in the storm. She joined us in grounded decision making, was thoughtful and informed, and really demonstrated so much care during the hard parts. She and her staff were so so kind and thoughtful, so supportive. They made us feel special while reducing decision fatigue and stress. She worked with our vendors beautifully, and the day of we were able to truly relax and be present. We could not have asked for better. Thank you, Gala Events!! xo

We had a lovely day exploring the many options offered in Humboldt County for a wedding venue. Alegria was both professional and thoughtful with her suggestions as well as with the delightful finishing touches at a few of the locations.

Thank you a million times forever for all that you did to make every one of my nuptual dreams come true! I can't tell you how grateful and honored I was to have you be our wedding powerhouse. You have been such a lovely presence in my life. Thank you for everything."

I am grateful to have had you at my side through it all. I knew we needed back up to create the event Lucy dreamt of. Thank you so much for showing us the way, keeping us on track, and holding us with professionalism, grace, and joy. Thank you. Thank you.

Alegria was great to work with planning our wedding ceremony! She is very organized and professional, but is also fun to talk to!  She made sure that the ceremony was exactly what we were hoping for! She also arranged our photography, our dinner after the ceremony, and my hair and makeup. Thank you, Alegria, for making the day so magical!

Alegria was professional, organized, and knowledgeable about our local area. She was there for us on every level that we needed along the way to our perfect wedding ceremony! We found our “YES” thanks to the amazing work of the Gala Events and Wedding team!!!
Thank you SO much!!!’



Alegría fue tan divertida y entregada a su trabajo. Me encantó que ella hizo la ceremonia. Ella es divertida y le pone humor a todo, amable y llevo acabo mi ceremonia en español e inglés. Ella es perfecta para llevar acabo ceremonias en el lenguaje Español. Recomiendo mucho a Alegría. Mi esposo y yo estamos tan felices y orgullosos por su trabajo. Gracias.

To celebrate our 25 year wedding anniversary, Alegria helped us personalize a meaningful ceremony. Through thought-provoking questions, she guided us and helped us to reflect on our journey of marriage, and what we would like to recommit to. Alegria's attention to detail and thoughtfulness allowed my husband and I to be fully present with each other and our guests.


We are so grateful that we found Alegria to help plan and officiate our wedding in Trinidad, CA. I knew it wouldn’t be easy to plan a wedding during a pandemic. She made us feel comfortable that we could maintain a safe environment for our small number of guests. She was very organized, professional, kind and eager to work with us to create a beautiful, unique event for our nuptials. Alegria supported us through the entire planning process. Our ceremony and vows were thoughtfully designed with her guidance and resources. We loved her vendor recommendations too. One week before our wedding date the venue cancelled our reservation. Alegria was on the phone with me right away to help figure out a solution to find a new location. We found a new location with an ocean view and had the ceremony outside right before a beautiful sunset. Despite having to change our original wedding plans, it was truly a memorable wedding day thanks to Gala Events and Weddings.

We contacted Alegria to officiate our wedding for August of 2020, but when the pandemic happened, we had to come up with an alternative. Alegria was professional the whole time. We ultimately decided on a Zoom ceremony. Alegria was available every step of the way, and was knowledgeable about the whole process, even within the uncharted territory of digital weddings. The ceremony was seamless, and months later, our friends still talk about it. We feel like we were able to have the wedding we wanted for a fraction of the cost. Overall, it was really nice and we recommend working with Alegria for all of your wedding needs.

Wow what an amazing job Alegria and her team did. Not only did they navigate very unclear pandemic rules and mandates with grace, they also helped me feel comfortable with the unknown. I am 100% confident Alegria can manage anything thrown at her (a world wide pandemic?!? NO PROBLEM!) and still make your event dreams come true. I can’t say enough about how great of a job they did!

I would highly recommend Gala events for a wedding. I don't know what we would have done without Alegria. Our wedding venue was changed 6 days before the day and Alegria made everything happen so perfectly.


Emilia Chavez

We are so happy that Alegria was our wedding officiant! Our wedding was a small elopement in the community forest and she made the process of putting together our ceremony very easy. I had been very stressed out by other things and really appreciated how Alegria was responsive and eager to help us craft our special moment. A definite recommendation from my husband and me!



Gala Events and Weddings is hands down my favorite in the area to work with. Alegria and her team work really hard to create amazing events that exceed expectations and are as stress free for her clients as possible. You will not be disappointed by their commitment to service and working with you from start to finish to create an unforgettable event.
