Adam Donovan-Groves


 (one of six planners in the Southeast receiving this honor)

Adam Donovan-Groves first began working in the wedding industry in Atlanta, Georgia in 2002.  After moving to Charlottesville, Virginia 11 years ago, Adam had the opportunity to continue working in the wedding industry as the Director of Weddings and Special Events at Keswick Hall, a Forbes 5-Star Rated Resort.  While at Keswick Hall, Adam had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of planners, and primarily being the sole planner for many of the weddings at the resort, giving him the optimal hands-on educational experience about the industry.  Once his family determined they had no desire to leave the Charlottesville area, Donovan-Groves Events went from dream to a reality.  A reality that now has offices in Charlottesville, Washington, DC, and New York City.

Adam’s lavish weddings and events have been published and featured with Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides.Com, Style Me Pretty,  Carats and Cake, Virginia Living Magazine, Wedding Chicks, appearances on HGTV, Southern Living listed him as Top Wedding Planner, and recognized as Vogue’s Ultimate Wedding Planner List 2016 (one of six planners in the Southeast receiving this honor).

When he’s not creating magical moments for his clients, Adam, and his husband of 17 years, find tranquility on their small family farm with their rescue dog, Gracie, just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia.
