    Couldn't have done it without Mary!

    We somehow managed to get married amidst many life changes, and I ended up planning our wedding first from the other side of the country, and later in the midst of a cross-country move while starting a new job and living in temporary housing. Through all of this, Mary was my lifeline. When I felt like I couldn't keep up with things, Mary was the first person I would call or text. She is extremely professional and always makes herself available. We hired her as a day-of coordinator, but she was involved in so much more than just the day of. I turned to her for advice, to help put out fires, and to just help keep me on track. She was such a pleasure to work with and I couldn't recommend her more highly!

    Mother of the Bride Wedding Planner's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words, Sally Ann. I loved working with you. Your were a beautiful bride and a gracious one. I wish you great happiness.

    Amazing wedding planner!

    Mary was a phenomenal. Many moons ago, I sent her an inquiry and she immediately called me by phone. It was clear she was on top of her business and her follow-up foreboded well for potential relationship we might have. We had a lovely chat and I felt comfortable securing her services immediately. She was always prepared for our conversations and always offered to schedule the "next" talk ahead of time, never leaving me to wonder whether it was appropriate to be in touch with her. By the time we secured her services, I had booked all my vendors, so instead of helping me find vendors, Mary helped me strategize final details. She repeatedly offered to make herself available to me for whatever I needed, even though I did not want to bug her more than necessary. She came to our rehearsal dinner, helped us write the processional/recessional, and helped trouble shoot various items of concern in the days leading up to the event. She made contact with all vendors to confirm their services a few months out and then again the week before, allaying my concerns about whether everyone would indeed remember to show up! On the day of the wedding, I don't remember having to think about vendors once--which is a true testament to her managing the logistics of the day with ease and grace. Everything went smoothly--and if it didn't, I had no idea, which is exactly the way one wants their wedding day to flow. I can't recommend her enough. Truly--Mary was delightful, kind, funny, organized, professional, and very, very, very capable!
