Laura Marolakos is beyond the stars on each rating scale!Sent on 07/11/2018
We had a quick engagement (6 months) and in that short time Laura became like family. Immediately, she got us going with the planning process and she walked us through every. single. step. Laura was able to break apart all the "to do's" of wedding planning into digestible bites. We never felt too overwhelmed or too stressed by the process. Her calm, professional demeanor made us feel confident from the moment we met all the way to the big day. Laura was thorough and meticulous in planning every detail. Her taste is exquisite. She connected with the heart of our wishes and just GOT US. She was amazing. We feel so lucky we got her as our planner. (Side note: as a professional, I feel like I learned a lot from her that I will apply in my job and future endeavors. Not sure if she knew what an impression she made on me. What an amazing role model and the world needs more women like Laura.)
Our wedding was a fairytale and I know it's because we had our own fairy godmother, Laura Marolakos making our reality feel like a dream.

Laura made our wedding day absolutely perfect. We didn't have to worry or stress about a thing. She is extremely organized, prepared, and experienced. Without her I can't imagine the day would have turned out the way it did. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a planner in the Sedona area. She not only planned a perfect wedding, but she also became our friend :)Sent on 07/06/2019

Heart of Sedona makes your wedding a dream come true
Our Sedona wedding was the most spectacular and heart-felt event of our lives. We are so grateful to Laura and her team at Heart of Sedona for bringing to life our vision and executing an event that our guests are still talking about.Sent on 06/25/2019
Laura is the best in the wedding planning business. She is calm, creative, supportive and detail-oriented. Our wedding took place at Enchantment Resort in 3 different spots, including two outdoor areas. Laura and her team set up the venues beautifully and guided our guests seamlessly to each location. Even when the rain threatened to bring the whole event indoors, Laura kept me calm and positive.
During the planning process, I felt blessed to have a pro like Laura assisting me with vendor selection, contract review, and negotiating with vendors. I felt I had a strong partnership with her and access to the best vendors, services and decor. She was also always available and prompt to return my emails or phone calls. We had a destination wedding so this was key.
Thank you Heart of Sedona for putting your hearts into making our wedding a dream come true.

Hello Brides and Grooms! If you are looking for a great wedding planner or officiant look no further. We love working with this professional company. Laura goes above and beyond for her clients. I have seen her help in every area of wedding set up and planning. She makes sure everyone is where they need to be and doing what they need to be doing, including vendors. We can say with confidence that she is the best of the best and always has the clients best interests at heart. Andrew the officiant is fantastic at officiating weddings and has a very pleasant sounding voice. We being a wedding film company like incorporating his audio into the films when possible because of his romantic and fitting verbiage. We would highly recommend hiring "Heart of Sedona Weddings" for your wedding needs.
Andrew and Laura are true professionals. We love working with both of them. Andrew creates an authentic and heartfelt ceremony for each couple. His delivery is graceful, elegant and poised. Adding Laura as your wedding planner is a smart addition to any Sedona wedding. She will save you money, time and stress. Believe, us she knows how to deal with all the little details! Heart of Sedona Weddings is a constant referral from us. We cannot say enough good things about this sweet natured couple.
Having a wedding in Northern Arizona adds a beauty that is only found there. But if can add additional stress, especially if it is a detestation wedding. A very successful business owner Laura understands the challenges of just surviving work and life. let her take your vision, organize and create it, plus wrap it a great big bow! This is a person who will create exactly what you ask for.
