Like hiring a friend!
Mae was incredible from the moment I contacted her. She responded the same day and scheduled a phone call right away. And everything from then on was like butter! We went for the partial planning service since we already did most of the planning ourselves, but we just needed a professional to help us with the fine details and make sure everything actually happened. Mae validated all of our ideas that we already had and offered suggestions that were SO helpful that we definitely wouldn’t have thought of on our own. She is a PRO! But more than that, she was so easy to work with. I was stressed out a lot in the weeks before the wedding but every time we met with Mae, she made me feel like we were doing everything right and like we were exactly where we needed to be. Our meetings were more like hangouts over coffee and pastries and walks in the sun. And on the day of the wedding, Mae and her assistant, Megan, handled everything with confidence, tranquility, and respect for us and everyone in attendance. We could not be happier with the service from Beyond Smitten Events!Sent on 02/03/2019

Best Personality You Will Ever Find
We felt an instant connection from the moment we sat down with Mae for our consultation. We instantly started coming up with ideas for our wedding. She inspired creative thoughts and made us feel super comfortable. She is super personable, fun, and professional. We hired Beyond Smitten Events for their Month of Coordination package. Because of Mae I know our wedding will be a complete success. I am so glad to have her on my team.Sent on 01/18/2019

All Around Amazing!!
We got married just two days ago and are still feeling the excitement of our wedding day, which would not have been a success without Mae. I can't say enough wonderful things about Mae. From our first meeting at a coffee shop in San Francisco, it felt like getting together with a friend. We hired her for the month of coordination, but she checked in with us throughout the months leading up to our wedding and was always available to answer questions and provide advice. We were planning a beautiful outdoor wedding in Foresthill, CA. Then the week before we were hit with cold and rain. Our vision for a spring wedding turned into a winter storm. Naturally I began to panic, but Mae was amazing and quickly helped us think through alternative spots for the cocktail hour, and we managed to shift things around so that everyone could stay warm and dry. Everything turned out more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. And during the wedding I didn't need to worry about a thing. Mae had everything under control and was so calm throughout, I don't know how she does it. I would recommend Mae to anyone, for any type of wedding. She can handle it all!Sent on 05/20/2019
