As if planning a wedding from afar isn't hard enough, I got off on the wrong foot with another florist only to have Mary sweep in and save the day! From the moment I connected with her, she was an absolute gem and set all my anxiety to ease. From her bubbling and friendly personality to her immediate response and prompt follow-up, her ideas and confidence blissfully fill in all the gaps to your every vision. She understood my personality, knack for uniqueness and my vision from the very beginning and delivered with far more than I ever expected!!

In Mary I found a coordinator and a friend. If you want a coordinator who is genuine and kind, yet knows exactly how to effectively run a show, keep the ball rolling, and think on her feet, then you want Mary. Mary was our day-of coordinator and florist for our wedding at Tom Ham's Lighthouse. My husband and I took a minimalist approach to flowers for our nautical-themed wedding, as we did glass vases with sand, candles, starfish, and sea shells for our table centerpieces. We only needed flowers for our bouquets, a couple of tables, and some petals for the ceremony isle. When I began calling florists for quotes, the typical response I got was "Well, I have a minimum order of $$$". That minimum was way higher than what we needed and wanted to pay. In contrast, when I called Mary, her immediate response was, "Let's not worry about minimums, just tell me what it is you need." Then and there, I felt relief! Mary was great. She offered suggestions about things I hadn't thought of, and she put together a very detailed plan for the flowers within a day. Just from one phone conversation and one email I knew I also wanted her as my day-of coordinator. As my day-of coordinator, Mary flawlessly set up all of my decor going off of mock-ups I had put together the week before the wedding. She directed our wedding party at rehearsal (the officiant didn't attend), got us all down the isle in order and on time (including my 2-yr-old ring bearer), helped my ring bearer blow the bubble machine during the recessional, and made sure cocktail hour was going smoothly while we were getting our pictures taken. She called all of my vendors the day before the wedding, made sure they were all good to go, and pulled strings to allow my guitarist/DJ to set up earlier than the venue told him he could. When I told my bakery person, photographer, and venue manager that Mary would be my coordinator, they all said the same thing with enthusiasm: "WE LOVE MARY! SHE IS GREAT TO WORK WITH!" Hire Mary!

My husband Jeff and I have nothing but positive things to say about Mary. She exceeded our expectations as our Day-Of-Coordinator. When I told Jeff I was writing this review, all he could say was “Oh, she was freaking awesome.” We had our ceremony and reception at The Ocean View Room at Naval Base Point Loma. We had a lot of hick-ups and obstacles along the way with the Navy, but Mary made sure everything went smoothly. When I was planning the wedding, she told me where to buy my candles and everything else I needed for the best prices. She prevented disasters from happening the few weeks leading up to the wedding…even though she was just hired for the wedding day. The week before the wedding I was freaking out about venue stuff and I must have called, texted and emailed her a hundred times. She immediately got back to me and helped in every way she could. When we found out it was going to rain, she was able to pull some strings and managed to book us a tent just 48 hours before the big day… crisis adverted! I can honestly say she went above and beyond to make sure our day went according to plan. Our flower lady was about 30 minutes away from our venue, and when Mary found out they weren't going to be ready in time, she drove all the way to meet her to make sure we got the bouquets for pictures before the ceremony. Mary kept everything on track, and did an outstanding job. Our wedding went off without a hitch and I can thank Mary for that. I highly recommend Mary to anyone who is looking for a wedding coordinator. The only thing I regret is not hiring her full time!

Mary is amazing. She guided us through the process and we received from her the most meaningful words during our ceremony. She was also very kind and understanding to our needs and was greatly supportive. She also designed the bouquet and boutonniere and the result was simply unique and beautiful. She really engaged with us and the importance of our union.

The woman we ordered our wedding cake through (Shirley Resnick, look her up!!) recommended Mary, and we are so glad she did!

Mary made it incredibly easy for us on our wedding day, and all the planning before hand! She had great ideas, and showed us lots of pictures and options to help us make our choices. My bouquet was red roses, babys breath and black tinted eucalyptus -- stunning! I got compliments all night! Ask her about the virtues roses, too! Everyone commented on what a beautiful, memorable and original experience it was for them.

The day of the wedding came, everything arrived on time and everything was just gorgeous! They set up all the table settings for us, and then dismantled them at the end of the night. It was simple, but so striking and beautiful. She was a joy to work with! I wish I could remember the name of the woman who helped out the day of the wedding as well; she was wonderful, too!

Do yourself a favor and give Mary a call! You won't regret it!

Calling all brides!!!! Do yourself a favor and hire Mary! Seriously the best thing I did for my wedding. She handles all the vendors. Makes contact with all of them before hand and has a conversation to make sure she knows all the little details. We picked day of services but it was much more than that. She did everything so seamlessly that I never had to worry about a thing. She was with us the whole night of the wedding making sure we were taken care of. She is amazing and made for such a stress free easy wedding day.

Mary is a wonderful wedding planner, coordinator, provider of decorations, flowers, etc, and she handles all those arrangements perfectly on military base venues, as well as at private venues. She provided beautiful flowers for our older daughter's wedding last year, and this year we were thrilled to let her handle all the details of our younger daughter's wedding at a beautiful military venue on Coronado Island. Her experience in dealing with the many extra details required on a Base was immeasurably helpful. She is kind, has a great flair, and takes care of all the details so that the bride and her family can enjoy the wedding/reception without a worry in the world! We highly recommend her efficient and competitively priced services to all!

Mary was our wonderful Day-of-Coordinator and officiant. We found Mary because she was a preferred vendor at our venue (Paradise Point) and also worked really well with our photographer and she did a great job with really knowing our venue well and working well with our other vendors. We were really excited about everything she offered for the coordination but then when she offered to officiate for us for a package rate and she sent us samples of her ceremonies we were so moved, we knew she was a perfect fit.

So first about her coordination: My husband and I are scientists so we care a LOT about details, Mary is just like us and extremely detail oriented. I was so nervous that the details I took two years to plan would get forgotten or overlooked and Mary was able to follow every little thing we wanted done and made our wedding just flawless! We wouldn't have been able to have the wedding we had without her. She kept the timeline going perfectly and was always making sure we were well taken care of. She was easy to contact and even if she was busy, she always acknowledged our emails and let us know when she'd respond. She was very professional and also warm and helpful. She also saved the day with safety pins for my broken bustle. She did great with our rehearsal the day before as well, on our wedding day everything went so smoothly.

Now officiating: Our guests absolutely LOVED how personal our ceremony was and it moved them to tears. She had such beautiful words that weren't just cookie cutter. She personalized it exactly to us (and even learned some Hawaiian phrases and traditions for us since we live in Hawaii). It felt like we had a good friend up there with us who was also really great at officiating. She even shed some tears which proves that she really does care about her couples. She also took care of our marriage license very quickly which we appreciated. We are so happy looking at our ceremony pictures and having her with us!
