Couple Out $8,000 Reception Hall After Wedding Venue Abruptly Closes in Gwinnett
This story and the others that followed was such a heart breaker for me, as a Atlanta wedding planner, that when I watched it on the news, I felt compelled to reach out to channel 2 action news and offer my assistance, experience and resources to help this couple who has less than 30 days to not only find a new wedding venue, caterer, decor, etc. but to also just figure out where all the money was coming from for one of the most important days of their lives, which was already paid for. And I had to share this story, i’m sure you’ll feel as devastated for them as I did.

A couple say they have been left without a place to hold their wedding reception after a Duluth venue abruptly closed. Mark Dacosta and his high school sweetheart had their wedding planned down to the decorations, the flowers and the venue: Elaborate Events in Duluth. “It made us feel nice, like royalty,” Dacosta told Channel 2’s Carl Willis. “We were having our dream wedding. It was such a nice place and to find out it’s not going to happen the way we thought it was going to happen is a real heartbreaker.” Read more here and or watch the video below.
