  • Lena and Chris were outstanding to work with during the entire process. GEM was the 4th company we interviewed to cater our wedding. After meeting them, we both knew they were the perfect fit for us. In addition to the incredible food and service, they treated us like family members and made us feel incredibly special. We look forward to working with them for all our future catering needs.

  • What a relief it was to have GEM as our catering and rental vendor. We were able to enjoy getting ready for our wedding with family without having to think it worry about the details of the ceremony or reception. Everything was setup so beautifully and the meal and service was wonderful. The whole experience was seamless and so enjoyable. What a blessing it was to us on the most memorable day of our lives. Thank you, GEM!

  • We needed last-minute chair rental for an event (400 golden chiavari chairs!) and GEM came though for us (so grateful!). They were very professional and prompt and the chairs looked absolutely amazing! Thank you!

  • Lena and her team were wonderful! Lena is so easy to work with, patience and accommodating, and always with solutions when an original vision would not workout as planned. She was creative and offered fair pricing, even working things out to fit into our budget. I highly recommend Lena and her team!

  • Lena is officially my hero! She brought my entire vision to life after having only met at the venue once. I was so nervous that it wouldn’t meet my expectations but GEM far exceeded them! We rented chivari chairs, our rustic sweetheart table, a street light, pipe and drape, and then best of all - our barrels with string lights! GEM’s rentals completely transformed our ballroom into a magical place. I am forever grateful for their help in making the wedding reception of my dreams!

    Ruby, Thank you! That makes me so happy to hear. I saw your pictures and I love that we were able to capture your vision ! Many blessings to you and Caio! You were a stunning bride! I loved your dress, it was so you! Lena

  • We chose Global Events Marketplace to handle our daughter's wedding after speaking with friends, as well as reading online reviews. Chris and Lena are professional, fair and thorough. The day of the wedding was worry-free, as they took care of every detail. The reception was gorgeous and the food exceptional. I would definitely recommend G.E.M. to anyone who wants a perfect event.

    Thank you Lisa. Knowing how important this day was to your family makes us so joy filled to know we hit the mark. We wish many years of blessings to Sean and Taylor!

    You did such an amazing job planning for your sister's wedding! I know by the amazingly long hug and a thousand thank you's at the end of the night that I received from your sister that you and we made her dream wedding come to life! Your family and friends were the kindest people I have ever met at an event! I will never forget the Tent side panel congo line of Canadians when the cold wind shifted! You will be great in this field I look forward to working with you in the future again hopefully very soon!

  • Working with GEM was a TRUE gem. They truly go the extra mile. Let me give you an example of their exceptional service. The week of our wedding the forecast was tracking to be a wet, cold, windy day as a cold front approached SWFL. I called GEM to discuss the possibility of putting up a tent for our reception. They immediately drove from downtown Ft. Myers to Captiva Island (1.5 hours) to measure our reception space to find the best solution. They truly go above and beyond for their customers. In the end, a tented reception was not the look and feel we were going for and luckily the weather held out and we didn't need one. They are extremely professional, easy to work with, and very responsive. You will not be disappointed. If you choose GEM, you will no doubt have a beautiful wedding. Lena will take care of you!

    I know it was a little stressful playing the waiting game with the weather, but we were just so thankful and happy for you both that the weather just turned out to be that beautiful. I know that being in nature and it's beauty is what you both truly wanted. We are just so happy for you and Steve! And thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us. These really matter to our future clients. Praying for a lifetime of adventure and happiness for you both Blessings, Lena

  • Chris & Lena were amazing to work with. They made sure we could do every personal touch to our wedding as possible. It was so important to us to have a biergarten set up (my husband being from Germany) and Chris went out of his way to track down the German beers we wanted and researched pretzel recipes so we could get it exactly how we wanted (plus, the rest of the food was delicious too!). The rest of the team catered so much to our guest and we honestly could not be happier with our day turned out.

    Heather it was truly our pleasure. Your family was so sweet and kind to work with. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for the warm words of appreciation for our staff during your greeting at your wedding. It was appreciated more than you know. Blessings and many years of happiness! Chris and Lena

  • GEM was absolutely amazing to work with, and so incredibly kind and made our wedding so perfect. Without their amazing company, we wouldn't have had such a fantastic wedding. They make sure everything is what you exactly wanted, and are always incredibly prompt and always answer messages and inquiries. Will use them again, and will tell all of my friends getting married (or putting on events!) to use them, too!

    Thank you so much! We can't wait to meet all of your friends!

  • I used Global Event Marketplace for help with my wedding rentals and for catering and am a client for life because of their amazing services and AWESOME food! Chef Chris Lackey is great! Before ever visiting their warehouse, I was very impressed with how quickly they responded and scheduled an appointment with me. Their prices and inventory were FAR superior to any other event company I had found (and I had done my research) so it was a no brainer to book with them. Above their great prices and selection, Chris and Lena Lackey are 2 of the nicest people you will ever meet and are super easy to work with. I really enjoyed my experience with GEM and would highly recommend them to anybody!!

    Jessica, Thank you for the opportunity and we look forward to a very long relationship with Neal Communities and any other special events in your life! Blessings, Lena
