My fiancé and I got engaged in Jan 2015. We booked our venue for over a year and a half out. I loved the long engagement for the grace of the planning period. I tried to do one major thing a month but quickly found myself about 4-5 months from our wedding and drowning in to-dos. With life’s realities weighing down upon me, wedding planning often (and by often, I mean always) took the backseat. Sadly, what was supposed to be “the happiest day of our lives” was turning into a dreaded chore.
To alleviate this feeling we decided that we should look into a day-of-coordinator. This was the area that we always thought we would forgo in order to save money but to say that I am incredibly happy with this decision is an understatement. I interviewed with a few companies but felt the most connected to Alissa of Maris Events. There was something about her that made put me at ease. My intuition proved correct and Alissa was more than amazing!
We ended up choosing a package with some extra love to meet our needs. Alissa went above and beyond what was detailed in the package. I could go on and on about all of the things she made happen for us but what I really want potential clients to know is this: Alissa will make sure that your wedding day is everything you have ever dreamt of. She will make sure the entire process runs smoothly and will put out fires without your even knowing. She will support all of your endeavors, make sure shiz gets done, and gracefully handle your family drama. She is exceedingly pleasant to work with, extremely organized, sweet as can be, and always has a smile/suggestion/support to offer. She is the type of person you miss when your paths no longer cross.
We are forever grateful to Alissa and the Maris team for making sure our wedding day was one that we will always cherish. I would recommend Alissa and the Maris team a MILLION times over.

I hired Maris Events to help me with my New Year’s Eve wedding. I worked closely with Alissa over several months, and was so impressed by her, I can’t find words to accurately describe how much I appreciated the work she did.
During the planning, Alissa was always available to provide input and advice, even if it fell outside the scope of the planning package I selected (design and coordination). She was very mindful of my budget, and had great suggestions for vendors and alternatives to help me stay within budget - both overall and by category. She handled some of my more difficult negotiations and sensitive conversations with vendors, in a far more tactful manner than I would have been able to.
On the day of, Alissa was seemingly everywhere at once, but very discreetly. She positioned herself so her help was never obtrusive; but she was always right there to place that item in your hand (or put it away), almost before you thought of it. Not one detail went overlooked or forgotten.
In addition to all the wonderful things the other reviewers mentioned, Alissa is creative, highly organized, offered great suggestions, and is such a pleasant person to work with. There is so much value in not having to worry about the details on the day of, I cannot emphasize enough how valuable the service Maris provided was to our wedding day.

I can't even begin to thank Maris Events for all their help on our daughters wedding. Being in the wedding industry myself (I am a floral designer) I knew right away that I would need help with her wedding so I could focus and be the mother-of-the-bride instead of stressing out over all the details. Alissa and her team worked tirelessly to pull together our vision perfectly while allowing us to enjoy the day. In addition to all the coordination and design assistance, Alissa also created stunning paper products for us including menus, escort table assignments, thank you notes for the guests and table numbers. She was instrumental in bringing it all together. I would highly recommend Maris Events for all your wedding coordination and so much more.
We highly recommend Maris Events to our couples looking for wedding planning or day of coordination. They are professional as well as fun to work with and have expert attention to detail. You will be able to relax and know that everything will go exactly the way you dreamed of on your wedding day!
