Such a good decision!
To all of you planning a wedding, and especially now amidst a pandemic, I highly recommend booking Stephanie Marie & Co. to help make your wedding journey a success, and one that you will love and cherish forever! I listened to several wedding planning podcasts, and each one heeded the sage advice to just book yourselves a planner! Our friends were working with Stephanie to plan their own wedding and personally recommended her with high praises. We shopped around a bit, and Stephanie was definitely the most responsive, affordable, and she impressed us from the start! We decided to book her for the full planning package because we knew we would need lots of support, and thank goodness we did! Our personal wedding ideas were all over the place from a tiny Lake Tahoe Elopement to a huge wine country wedding, and then eventually back to a small elopement at my family's lavender farm. Stephanie helped us throughout the entire process with tools and questions to narrow down our vision and get to the root of what our actual priorities and dreams were. She helped us create a realistic budget, and of course, kept everything on time, and strategic when working with vendors. She absolutely had our backs by reviewing all vendor contracts with a keen eye for clauses and details that were not in our favor and helped us successfully navigate cancellations with full refunds once we had to change everything due to COVID. She happily made trips down from Tahoe to the Bay Area to help us with site visits, shop rentals, and do wine and food tastings. My family got to meet Stephanie in person during a site visit and they were immediately comfortable working with her and relieved to have her by our side. She was always on time and prepared for each and every phone/in-person meeting, with excellent questions for our prospective vendors, follow up emails, and the next steps for completion. Over about a year's time, we worked closely with Stephanie and had an awesome wedding planned in Sonoma Wine Country with 150 people. Then, COVID happened and she helped us make the tough but smart and responsible decision to completely pivot our plans to a small 24 person elopement wedding on our family's private property. Steph helped us compose a very thoughtful and clear message to our guests about the change and start over from square one, planning a new, socially distanced wedding in only 3 months! When vendors were closed or unresponsive due to COVID, she worked with her trusted network in Lake Tahoe and the SF Bay Area and totally pulled off everything! Plus, on the day of our wedding, she showed up beautiful, composed, calm, organized, and ready to work independently and without asking me a single question on the wedding day. I got to sit back and relax all morning knowing that her team was transforming the property into our dream venue. She made all our visions come to life, and we are so thankful to have worked with her. We strongly recommend that you book Stephanie Marie & Co for your wedding! You will not regret it!

Highly Recommend Amazing Wedding Planner!
I can say without hesitation, Go full service all the way! Yes, Stephanie will come through in ways you couldn’t anticipate on the day of (physically pulling weeds to make paths for guests and rebuilding your centerpieces multiple times after the wind and heat left them in pieces) but where she helped us the most was all the steps along the way. She helped us find vendors who not only fit into our budget, sometimes at the absolute last minute, but were also the perfect fit for our vision. Stephanie also helped us navigate all the struggles of 2020, from Covid restrictions to being evacuated from our home due to fires weeks before the wedding. It felt like Stephanie was right there by our sides through it all and on the day of she and her team went above and beyond to execute what we had been planning with so little required of us the day of. Her team’s preparation with attention to detail allowed us to enjoy getting ready and spending time with our loved ones before the ceremony without having to navigate details of set up and décor. We thoroughly enjoyed what was no doubt the best day of 2020 because of Stephanie’s hard work and dedication to us and our vision from initial consultation to day of execution. Highly recommend her and her full service plan.Sent on 09/26/2020

The best decision we made for our wedding
This woman is a godsend — detail-oriented, a hard worker, and fun, we cannot recommend her highly enough. From the moment we booked Stephanie, she lifted every wedding burden, no matter how great or small, off our very stressed shoulders. We had been planning a 120-person wedding since last year, and when COVID-19 struck, it became apparent we would have to pivot in a major way. Still hoping for the best, we only started re-planning in earnest two months before the date (shame on us) and nearly everything changed--guest list, venue, caterer, rentals....and with every bump in the road, Stephanie was there, working nights and weekends, emailing us into the wee hours and texting with us on what should have been her days off, because she cares so much. And on days where we felt overwhelmed, she was all too happy to take the reins for a bit and continue working behind the scenes while we rested. (The surprising thing about small weddings is that they are just as much work to plan as a large wedding, even if they come in a smaller package. COVID complicates this many times over, too.)Sent on 10/21/2020
Her work ethic is second to none, and her people skills are incredible. When vendors didn’t communicate quickly enough, Stephanie made sure to follow up, oh-so-politely. When we had trouble booking one caterer, she had three different options for us in her back pocket. Stephanie gently guided us when we needed things like a makeup artist, or signs, or market lighting diagrams, and she was always there to offer her help and expertise when we had questions. When things went wrong (because no matter how hard you work to get it right, there are so many moving pieces that it's inevitable), she handled them, and let us know after the fact when it wouldn’t be as stressful. She is so proactive and organized that we didn’t even know there had been last-minute rolling blackouts on the day of the wedding, until after they were over. It was a dream walking into our venue that day—Steph and I had put so much work into finding the perfect linens, table settings, and decor, and her team absolutely nailed it. She also did a great job helping us brainstorm and execute some creative social distancing and hygiene measures to keep everyone safe--a necessity when you have a 94-year-old grandmother. Not only is she an amazing planner and coordinator, but we have made a friend for life, as Stephanie is vivacious and positive, shares our love of Tahoe and the outdoors, and is so much fun to be around.
Thank you, Stephanie, for helping us plan an incredible wedding in two months. We know you put in countless hours and probably lost some sleep, but it was so much sweeter than the pre-pandemic wedding we had thought we would have. Because of you, we had our dream wedding, and we are forever grateful!
Stephanie Marie and her team are the best! They're detail-oriented and professional as well and being easy going and flexible. A breeze to work with and kind to the core. We highly recommend this team for area weddings.
Stephanie Marie saved my life!!! I recently had the pleasure of working with Stephanie on a wedding located at Garwoods on the shore of Lake Tahoe. We had a bride who had a very fluid vision of her wedding and brainstormed with us on multiple occasions. Stephanie was very patient with her and made her she felt relaxed and knew each of her concerns was being addressed. She is the reason that my team and I were able to succeed on her wedding day. She is extremely professional, kind, organized and above all she makes everyone around her feel confident in what's going on. I can not give enough praise to level of skill she brings to wedding planning.
