    Fresh Face: Evermore Events

    Gertrudis and Reggie Easterling’s love story evolved quickly, with them getting married just six months after meeting. To avoid the financial burden planning a wedding can sometimes bring, the couple opted for a courthouse ceremony, followed by an intimate reception with their closest family and friends.

     

    “One of the biggest things that helped our marriage was we didn’t have all the financial stressors that are often associated with more expensive weddings,” Gertrudis shared. “You don’t want to take that on early on.”

     

    With 13 years of marriage behind them, Gertrudis and Reggie are launching an event space that honors the origins of their love story and seeks to give every couple the wedding of their dreams, regardless of budget constraints.

     

    “There’s just not many places where you can have a good quality event at a reasonable price,” Reggie said. “That’s the space we’d like to fill in the event community.”

     

    Reggie serves in law enforcement and Gertrudis worked as a school counselor for the School District of Lancaster before leaving her job to open Evermore Events. In both of their fields, Reggie and Gertrudis encountered people on some of their most challenging days. Evermore Events gives them the opportunity to celebrate with people during their best moments.

     

    As General Manager of Evermore Events, Gertrudis is putting her creative eye to good use, recognizing many couples have photography and atmosphere top of mind when choosing a venue. With brick walls, hardwood floors, exposed beams, and beautiful lighting creating a perfect blend of industrial and modern aesthetics, the space is curated to ensure couples do not have to sacrifice beauty for the sake of their budget.

     

    Evermore Events is also conveniently and strategically located on North Plum Street in Lancaster, with close proximity to the train station and a short walk from the city’s restaurants, bars, and hotels.

     

    Along with weddings, Reggie and Gertrudis hope to hold events for nonprofits and businesses, and eventually use the space to host programming that gives back to their neighbors through community meals and holiday gift drives.

     

    “This venue is really for the people of the community,” Reggie said.
