SMILES IN PARADISE is a wedding/event planning service serving both the Rio Grande Valley of Texas and the Ruidoso, New Mexico markets. My customers have referred to me as a "concierge of services" for event planning.
I have spent numerous years in a public relations position in Corporate America, where event planning was a focal point and significant responsibility in my position. After moving to the South Padre Island area, I became ordained as a wedding officant so that I could help couples plan and enjoy their very special day. In 2012 I branched out to offer my services in the mountains of the Ruidoso, New Mexico area. In addition, I am available for all event planning, be it corporate events, birthdays, graduations, or any major event planning.
As far as weddings, I am available to assist with the entire process - from the rehearsal dinner through the wedding itself - or to simply provide the ceremony.
For corporate events or other celebrations, I have an established group of professionals to help with everything from location to lighting to balloons!
I have an experienced and reliable network of vendors to help you plan every little detail ! Most are bilingual in English and Spanish. I would be honored to officiate your wedding or event and look forward to working with you and make you SMILE IN PARADISE !!

Maureen did such a wonderful ceremony for the two of us. Before our wedding she was helpful with recommendations on locations and additional vendors that we might require.Sent on 11/26/2015
On our wedding day she checked with us to see if there were any last minute detail that we needed help with.
The actual ceremony was personal. Her words were kind thoughtful and from the heart.
We had a small wedding. Many of our guest commented on how touching and thoughtful she was.
If you are looking for a personal touch. We recommend her with out any reservations or hesitation.
Both of us agree that she did a great job. It was a perfect day for us.
