    Mary was such a pleasure to work with! We asked her to coordinate the day of the wedding in order to manage all the vendors, guests, and transportation on the big day. She was super organized, calm, responsive, and thoughtful - both in the lead-up to the wedding, and during the actual day. I felt very comfortable leaving everything in her hands - and everything ran so smoothly and without a hitch. A huge thanks to Mary for making all the pieces come together and helping us create such a magical wedding experience!

    Mary Karnes, AKA Mother of the Bride, is an awesome ALA Carte Wedding Planner. I'm writing this review, as I (MOB), along with the (MOG), was very much involved in the planning of our children's wedding.
    The wedding venue chosen was Folly Farm, a gorgeous location, but one which required that we obtain all vendors (caterer, florist, tents, chairs, etc.) on our own. After we obtained the major "players", we realized that we needed someone to assist us in putting all of the pieces together to create a wonderful wedding. Mary turned out to be that "someone”!
    Mary told us to contact her whenever we needed any suggestions, advice, or just needed someone to calm us and provide direction. She always responded almost immediately.
    Mary established herself with our vendors as our liaison. She fielded all of the questions, concerns, etc. that the bride, groom and parents had and handled many of the questions raised by the vendors, thus alleviating the need for us to attend to every minor detail.
    During the last days prior to the wedding, Mary created a detailed day of wedding timeline. She revised it numerous times and was instrumental in making valuable suggestions. Mary and her daughter Tess, her assistant, attended the rehearsal the evening before the wedding. They used that opportunity to get to know everyone involved, as well as to familiarize themselves with the layout of Folly Farm and the locations of each part of the wedding.
    On the day of the wedding, Mary and Tess came to our home, where the bride and her bridesmaids were getting ready for the wedding. After delivering the groom's flowers to his home, Mary and Tess went to Folly Farm and "worked their magic" in overseeing that every detail was coordinated. Mary is a soft-spoken, knowledgeable, incredibly reliable and skilled Ala Carte Wedding Planner. With Mary's extensive assistance, the wedding flowed smoothly and was as close to perfection as it could have been!

    Wow, Mary & Debbie went above and beyond to help make my day so very special! From answering every little question before the wedding in emails and texts, to listening to me vent about family members or problems, Mary & Debbie were there from the beginning to the end! Debbie worked with us on our wedding day and she went above and beyond to make sure we didn't have to think about a thing, but enjoying our day. They are a must have on your wedding day even if you just need them for the day of. I can not thank them enough!
