I had to organize a small wedding in less than a month. Maria was instrumental in getting it all planned and run smoothly. It started out when she picked up the phone as soon as I called. In general, she was prompt in returning calls. She uses texts and emails effectively so it makes the communication easy.

She got a bakery to make a beautiful fondant cake to the exact picture we provided and that's when other bakers required a year lead time for such cakes. She had florist to do the bridal bouquet according the picture we provided, great restaurant with excellent menu, video and photo guys, beauty salon. She then stayed on top of things and directed everyone at the day of the wedding. Oh, and we left the marriage license behind at the last moment so Maria stayed controlled and kept everyone calm while the license was fetched.

Oh, and with Maria most sentences end with at least one exclamation point!!!

Thank you so much, Maria!

Maria was truly a god during my planning! She linked me up with so many people and ideas! She was truly the person who made our wedding day and night go smoothly. I never did not need to worry about anything other than having a good time! She even was by my side for anything that I needed! If you are a working woman, Maria is who you need to help with the planning and details, but everyone should use her the night of! I do not know how people do without!

Maria made our wedding day perfection!! We started working with her once most of our vendors were already booked, but she was still a huge part of making our day successful. She met with my family multiple times to go over details, make itemized lists, and create a wedding day timeline. She took on a lot of our "small projects" towards the end of the planning, such as, making the menu cards and printing off the programs. She was a wealth of knowledge and helped out a lot with all of our vendors. Because of Maria, everyone is my family was happy and able to enjoy our special day. Thank you thank you Maria, you are WONDERFUL at what you do.

She responded the next morning to a cry for help sent via email the previous night and coordinated my daughters wedding that was less than 10 days away. She started working before the contract was signed, was professional and a master at problem solving; making the day a success. Without her there would have had no DJ, tent and chairs would have been set up during the rehearsal, the list goes on of things which can become a problem without a professional. She is wonderful to work with, gave us excellent service at an affordable cost, and i will always be grateful for her quick response to what was becoming a family emergency. What a wonderfully beautiful day we had. She even brought good weather!!!!

I don't know how Maria does it all!! I could not have planned my parents 50th Anniversary party without her. She walked me through every step of the way and reassured me when I felt overwhelmed that she would "handle it, and not to worry". She absolutley handled it all!! From start to finish, set up to take down.... Maria was there. When the weather became a rain storm, she immediately called the tent company to come out and put up weather "sides" to protect everything! The party far exceeded my expectations, and it truly is still "the" Party people are talking about.
A dream come true for my family and an honor my parents will never forget.
Thank you Maria!!!!!!
Very Fondly, Paige Hoover

I was unsure of whether to go with a coordinator or not, but I am sure glad that I did! I am very organized myself and had already planned a large part of my wedding when I decided to hire Maria. However, once I started working with her, I realized how many details that I hadn’t even thought of! We were able to meet shortly after deciding to work together and had several meetings in addition to that as well leading up to the wedding. She accompanied me on vendor visits which was very nice.

On the day of the wedding, Maria really delivered. She went as far as to go to the store to buy shoes for one of my bridesmaids! She did her best to fix my flowers, and went to bat for me when my florist was dropped the ball and decided to be very unprofessional. It was really nice to not have to worry about things on the day of the wedding. I can’t say enough good things about Maria! You will not be disappointed! Best money that I spent on the wedding!
