Marisa and her team were the perfect partners for our wedding planning process! Marisa allowed us to identify our genuine priorities and overall vision while using her experience to offer up opinions and advice to keep us on track. Her expertise in this industry became increasingly apparent as we began to book our vendors and venue; each vendor had nothing but respect for Marisa, and they were extremely excited to work with her on another wedding. The organization displayed by Orpha was truly remarkable; from day one, they kept track of every idea, thought, like, dislike, all correspondences with potential vendors, budget tracking, and more. Marisa and her team are a truly reliable, responsive, and loyal group of people. We could not have imagined working with anyone else through this process. Our wedding day was simply perfect; every detail was flawless, genuine, and ours, and we owe so much of it to the hard work of Orpha Events. Thank you for everything!Sent on 07/04/2018

We were so fortunate that Marisa Vrooman was my daughter’s wedding planner. I don’t know where to start singing her praises. Every vendor she directed us to was absolutely perfect. Marisa completely understood the spirit and vibe we wanted to convey. Elegant, simple, personal, whimsical. She nailed it! Nature Composed did an incredible job of weaving together gorgeous local blooms in a way that not only enhanced the Blue Ridge Mountains, but intertwined the easy spirit of the celebration. L'Etoile Catering hit it out of the ball park with their locally sourced menu. Every person remarked that it was the best wedding dinner they had ever had. L'Etoile Catering captured the vibe perfectly. Delicious, unfussy, memorable and served impeccably. Cakes by Rachel brought us an absolutely delicious cake that was simple and elegant. And Sera Petras Photography… tears come to my eyes as I recall her images. Her work is absolutely stunning. She used her craft to perfectly capture the essence of my daughter and son-in-law and the spirit of their joyous day. None of this could have come together without Marisa’s careful watch. She watched, she cared, she orchestrated… but all in a way that lowered anxiety, made it easy, and made it fun. Our wedding and family has many pieces and parts. It’s complicated. Marisa and her team navigated it all with respect and care. The day wasn’t without glitches. Again, Marisa and her team were completely on top of it. I had no anxiety on the wedding day, first because my daughter married her perfect match, and second because Marisa had our back. Several people came up to me at the wedding to remark at how incredible our wedding planner was. She helped us craft the perfect day to truly reflect my daughter and son-in-law. She executed it in a way that was professional, compassionate, and personable. She followed through in way that speaks volumes of her integrity and care. Marisa is more than a wedding planner, she’s a friend we now hold dear.Sent on 07/04/2018
