Tasteful, Elegant, Creative & Easy: Weddings by Stardust

Weddings by Stardust made our wedding dreams come true! I told them I wanted a big, elegant and extravagant wedding and did they ever deliver! Marsha is truly a wedding fairy godmother! They were available for anything we needed and responsive for every moment during the year we planned our wedding.

They have relationships with all the top and best local vendors and made making decisions fun and easy.

When asked what I wanted from a wedding, I told her, “I want to go to a wedding I’ve never been to before. I don’t want to copy or repeat anything anyone else has done but make it personal, beautiful and enchanting.”

Stardust’s creativity and willingness to push us and make special moments for us, our family and guests, were so special: we had an organist play the Jurassic Park theme song in a church, a choir do a flash mob style rendition of stand by me, greenery and lighting tunnel for guests to walk through in the reception, 4 course Italian-inspired meal, espresso martini bar and after party for the ages.

The best part, is that we could tell Marsha and her team had FUN planning this celebration with us. They are true partners, creators and wedding fairy godmothers!


We had 5 separate events in 1 weekend that they planned and executed to perfection. If you want the absolute best with people who cause NO DRAMA and ensure everything runs smoothly, then Weddings by Stardust is your only option. They are PERFECTION!

Weddings by Stardust was a pleasure to work with and we can't imagine what the wedding planning process would have been like without them.

Weddings By Stardust exceeded my wildest expectations. I would highly recommend to any bride and groom! My husband and I had a 3-day wedding weekend planned that included a rehearsal luncheon, a traditional wedding ceremony, a formal dinner, and a Saturday reception with 300+ guests. Peyton, our lead planner, was such a reassuring, attentive, detail oriented planner. She was always available and responsive, no matter what time I'd text or email her. I now believe there is a real psychology behind talking to the bride in a way that was always comforting, always thinking ahead, handled and had an answer for every little last minute question or worry I had. I never intended on working with any wedding planners or coordinators, but I think all my lucky stars I turned it over to Peyton. Furthermore, I could have never pulled off a big weekend like this all alone. Peyton, Shonna, Jayce and Marsha, I can't thank you guys enough for all the hours of planning, meetings, and attention to the details you all put into our wedding to make it so special. Detail oriented, reassuring, and 100 steps-ahead of you. Weddings by Stardust was a pleasure to work with and we can't imagine what the wedding planning process would have been like without them.

My husband and I look forward to partnering for more events, parties and anniversaries with Weddings By StarDust.

Exceptional Service

We’d like to thank Marsha and her team heartfelt for making our daughters wedding a fairytale. Our daughter lives in MD, we live in HI and the wedding was happening in TX. We needed all the help that we could find. Marsha had the knowledge, the connections with all the vendors and understood my daughter and son-in-law’s vision. We ended up with a better wedding than we could ever have imagined. It was stress free, well planned - well in advance. We had a last trip to meet in TX in February (wedding was April 15th) and all last details were done then. Before the wedding Marsha told us that she’d take care of anything and everything the wedding day and only let us know if it affected us financially. And she did. I still don’t know if there were any details that didn’t go as planned. For us it was a dreamy day just focusing on the happy couple and having so much fun. We were taking care of from the first contact until the day after the wedding. The vendors she works with are phenomenal. We are so thankful and hope that other families gets to experience the wedding planning as fun and stressfree as we did. Thank you Marsha, Peyton and Jacy!
