    The best it could have been, but even better

    A wedding is only as good as the planning behind it, and our wedding was near perfect despite the global pandemic happening around us. The simple fact is that it would not have been the wedding of our dreams without the help of Mary. She worked with us to start planning our wedding, and continued providing support and guidance as the world shifted. Her guiding hands helped keep everything safe, but just as beautiful as we originally intended. We not only worked through cutting down our guest list to fit the changing mandates, she also was a God send on the day of working with each guests comfort levels. She was like the wind, everyone was aware of her but in an unobtrusive manner. Her presence was calming, refreshing, and steadying. She really won my now husband over when he went to ask for her help in moving a table from outside. See, this particular table was for guests from out of town who when originally making plans wanted the table to be outside for extra precaution. The wedding was so well handled (all with Mary's guiding touches) that they felt comfortable moving inside. The moment he asked, she waved her hand and the team that she already had standing by for that exact purpose leaped into action to quickly resolve the dilemma. If you're looking for a stellar planner in general, hire Mary. If you're looking for a planner to navigate even the toughest waters, definitely hire Mary!

    Great full-planning experience

    We truly cannot recommend Mary enough. She was with us every step of the way in planning our wedding. From the venue search to the day of details she had everything under control and made our day run smoothly. She is always prompt to answer emails or phone calls and will help you navigate any bump in the road. Our vendors even commented that she went above and beyond in their interactions with her to make their jobs easier as well. Beyond her excellent logistical and communication skills she also has a great eye for design and was able to take our vague ideas of what we wanted and turn it into a beautiful scheme the day of our wedding. Even better she did all this and kept us below our budget! You should definitely consider her for your wedding planner- we couldn't have done it without her help!

    Our Dreams Came True

    We first asked Mary for help with planning our wedding after I had spent many sleepless nights fretting (and yes, panicking) over how one could possibly pull everything together without help in less than 6 months. By the end of the day, Mary’s optimism, professionalism, and support was so reassuring that we were able to rest in absolute confidence that everything was going to be great.
    ______
    Throughout the entire process, Mary had a handle on the way things were going to unfold and kept us informed and prepared for what to expect and how to handle it. She didn’t notify us of everything she was doing behind the scenes—rather, she kept things off our radar when it would simplify our lives and worked proactively on tasks that would do the same. She had everyone involved channeling all communication through herself during the wedding week and she did so with joy!
    _______
    We were particularly impressed at the way Mary took charge of the rehearsal. She worked incredibly well with our family and friends, which was super important for our private wedding where our loved ones took on several roles that couples typically contract out. She thought of every detail, especially the ones which we would have failed to plan entirely. Mary successfully timed out the entire day and ensured we all had black and white timelines for the day: the bridal party’s preparation, venue prep, travel, arrivals, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and cleanup.
    ________
    There was one point on our wedding day, just a couple hours before the ceremony, when my Maid of Honor and sole bridesmaid was MIA and because the cell service was poor, I couldn’t reach a single family member or friend to help me finish getting ready and get me to the ceremony. I called Mary, and within one ring she answered and handled the situation with all the coolness in the world. It was true all along that this was an event that we could not handle with our loved ones alone, and it couldn’t have been plainer when Mary was the only person who was reachable. Mary made it her priority to be effortlessly there for us.
    ________
    Our wedding ceremony was phenomenal. I look back at all the mood boards and ideas we’d collected and see that we really had everything we dreamed of and the vibes were exactly as we had hoped they would be. Our guests gushed about how romantic and moving our ceremony was, which we definitely felt, too. Everyone said the reception was fun in ways that they hadn’t experienced at weddings before. For us it went by in a flash, but there were moments that stand still in memory because we were so present in the celebration, and we’re able to recall those dances and speeches and hugs in vivid detail whenever we want. Mary handled everything that night so we would have those gifts for the rest of our lives.
    ________
    We couldn’t be happier with her services and the moments she helped us plan.

I knew I wanted to be a wedding planner when I was 18, and I still wouldn't have it any other way! While I have experience with a variety of event types including university and fundraising events, weddings have my heart.

I plan and am on-site for all weddings booked through Mary Elizabeth Events, and my wonderful assistants join me for the day-of.
