A Planner Who Cares
When we began planning our wedding over a year and a half ago, we were happily living in Duluth, building our life while planning a wedding. We knew we needed some day of help because all our family and friends would be traveling to Duluth. Fast forward a year, life threw us some curve-balls including a job loss, a move to a new city, and a bit of a whirlwind – but our wedding planning still forged ahead because of Mary.Sent on 06/14/2019
When life hit us, Mary was there for us, not only as our day-of-coordinator, but as our friend. She cared about us as people through all the planning. She took all the emails, phone calls, and video chats and made our vision come to life. Her adjustments to our decor set up made it more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. She helped create a timeline so we could do everything we wanted that day. And she was able to corral a large wedding party and family. She took every bit of stress off our shoulders so that we could really enjoy our day.
A couple CANNOT go wrong when they decide to hire Mary. She is an expert in the area, detail-oriented, professional, and compassionate. Mary truly made our day elegant and stress-free.

you must hire her
Mary and her assistants were awesome! they were eager to resolve all my bridezilla demands instantly. Mary has the perfect balance of knowing when to ask you and when to put out fires on her own. She brought up so many details and questions I had not considered and in the end the day was a lot smoother because of her. She is truly amazing. Best money we spent for the wedding!Sent on 06/11/2019

First of all – if you are debating a Day of Coordinator, good lord above you need to do it and hire Mary Carlson with Pure Event Planning & Design! Mary was absolutely phenomenal, professional, and incredibly fun! The new hubby and I are STILL talking about how organized Mary was, both before the wedding in helping us create a timeline, as well as the day of, when she was able to help set up and clean up the decorations, keep everyone on task and on time, took care of all of the vendors, and more importantly, be ready for anything! We were expecting rain all day at our outdoor venue and Mary was amazing at making me feel prepared and ensure everything would be taken care of, inside or out. She was great with communicating with me throughout the day, as well as keeping everything upbeat and fun! Everyone in the bridal party and our families loved her. She was by far an amazing life savor for our day and we could never thank her enough!Sent on 06/19/2018
