About Instead of You! Coordination

Clients and vendors alike consider Maxine Andrew “a joy to work with” and “absolutely the best around!”  Her easy-going style, precision planning and beautiful designs allow you to be relaxed and enjoying the whole experience knowing your wedding will be fresh and fabulous.

Would you like to exchange vows amidst a century-old stone ruin in the Wine Country?  How about an elegant gourmet dinner on a starlit bluff overlooking the ocean?  Or perhaps you’d prefer to dance the night away in a sky-high hotel ballroom with the perfect band playing all your favorite songs.  Whatever your dream or vision, Maxine will turn it into reality.

Working closely with local and long-distance brides, Maxine knows the best vendors and venues (and the secret spots too!), and coordinates all the important details that go into making a wedding perfect.  Weddings produced by Maxine are regularly featured in top national magazines and wedding books.  It’s no surprise Maxine is considered “one of the Bay Area’s Best” by San Francisco Magazine.

There are lots of coordinators to choose from, but as a recent bride said, “I didn’t need to meet with anyone else. I knew Maxine was the one.”  Your wedding will be amazing when Maxine coordinates the details…Instead of You!

    We are beyond impressed by what Maxine Andrews (Instead of You) was able to achieve. She was able to combine our thoughts and ideas, with her own expertise and creativity to create a meaningful and unforgettable experience for us, our families and surely our guests. The evening unfolded so naturally and flawlessly, allowing us to be present (and worry free) during such a incredible moment in our lives. Her calming presence and distinct capabilities, left us feeling confident and reassured every step of the way...

    We are so happy we hired Maxine to streamline, coordinate and improve our wedding plans. Maxine thought outside the box, creating a design for our wedding full of beauty and originality, while simultaneously making sure no detail was overlooked and all the vendors played well together! Friends and family still comment that our wedding day was fabulous -- and we agree!

    Maxine's talent is not just providing the highest quality of service and a knowledge of her business that makes her so amazing at her job. She does those things, but what set her apart for me was that each event she creates is unique. Her work expresses her clients in the most wonderful way. What makes Maxine the best at her job is her love of what she does, which brings to each of her events a unique, wonderful and truely special quality that makes a wedding more than just a big party.

    Our wedding was truly special. It wasn't just beautiful and a fablous party. The moment we began working with her, the process took on a quality unlike anything I have ever experienced. It was like our wedding took place over the nine months of planning. Every meeting, tasting, fitting and conference call was special.

    She has an amazing ability to be completely organized, structured and on scheudle, while allowing her creative abilities to bring the most amazing elements to an event.

    And when it came to the wedding day itself, we had created, with Maxine's expert direction, an event that even five years later, our friends and family still speak of as the best event they have ever attended. It was uniquely ours, but without Maxine, we never would have had the once in a lifetime experience we had.

    Maxine is a consummate professional. Even for brides who are perfectionists, Maxine's extraordinary attention to detail allows them to relax and enjoy their day. Details are taken care of that a bride might never even have noticed or asked for. Here's an example: we were doing a walk-through before a wedding. Maxine simply pointed to the bricks in the courtyard and her assistant scribbled down a note. This was their shorthand for making sure the brick courtyard was clean. Sure enough, on the morning of the wedding, there was a crew down on their hands and knees scrubbing the bricks. Every small detail adds up to a total picture. And that picture is simply beautiful. If that was a detail you would hardly notice, imagine what Maxine does with details that are critically important! Maxine is an absolute pleasure to work with.
