Mary Elise made all my wedding dreams come true. She was such a pleasure to work with and is a true artistic genius! She always made me feel at ease during wedding planning and created someone truly beautiful for my big day. I knew I wanted my wedding to be super special and wasn't able to do it 100% on my own. She helped me keep on track and bring our collaborative vision to life. She catered to all my needs and was super easy to communicate with. Can't say enough great things, book her immediately! And if you are still considering, one look at her instagram and you will fall in love!Sent on 09/27/2017

I knew we wanted day of coordination and I was beyond excited to have found Mary Elise, who provided seamless day of service along with the amazing design elements she put together for us! Having special details was so important to me, but doing it all myself seemed so overwhelming. Mary Elise ended up building the stunning backdrop for our ceremony which later transitioned into the backdrop for our photobook, and also created all of our signage. I knew I wanted something a little more modern than a chalkboard and she suggested clear signs which she hand painted for us!Sent on 01/19/2017

Mary Elise has a great vision! I would best describe her as a wedding designer and great for those DIY projects that you don't want to tackle... She makes it all seem so effortless. She really takes a couples vision and allows it to come to life... On your wedding day!Sent on 08/23/2016
Mary Elise has an exquisite eye for details and will really bring your vision full circle. It was a pleasure to work alongside her and experience her work first hand.
We shot Mary Elise's own wedding and her designs were amazing!
