Clients and vendors alike consider Maxine Andrew “a joy to work with” and “absolutely the best around!” Her easy-going style, precision planning and beautiful designs allow you to be relaxed and enjoying the whole experience knowing your wedding will be fresh and fabulous.

Would you like to exchange vows amidst a century-old stone ruin in the Wine Country? How about an elegant gourmet dinner on a starlit bluff overlooking the ocean? Or perhaps you’d prefer to dance the night away in a sky-high hotel ballroom with the perfect band playing all your favorite songs. Whatever your dream or vision, Maxine will turn it into reality.

Working closely with local and long-distance brides, Maxine knows the best vendors and venues (and the secret spots too!), and coordinates all the important details that go into making a wedding perfect. Weddings produced by Maxine are regularly featured in top national magazines and wedding books. It’s no surprise Maxine is considered “one of the Bay Area’s Best” by San Francisco Magazine.

There are lots of coordinators to choose from, but as a recent bride said, “I didn’t need to meet with anyone else. I knew Maxine was the one.” Your wedding will be amazing when Maxine coordinates the details…Instead of You!

We are beyond impressed by what Maxine Andrews (Instead of You) was able to achieve. She was able to combine our thoughts and ideas, with her own expertise and creativity to create a meaningful and unforgettable experience for us, our families and surely our guests. The evening unfolded so naturally and flawlessly, allowing us to be present (and worry free) during such a incredible moment in our lives. Her calming presence and distinct capabilities, left us feeling confident and reassured every step of the way...

Although we hired Maxine only for "day of" coordination, I was able to stay calm throughout my planning process knowing Maxine would keep me on track and would be there if I missed anything. She had great vendor contacts, and was an asset when she came with us to vendor meetings--she knew all the right questions to ask. I could enjoy the entire planning process all the way to The Big Day. She was a pleasure to work with.

We are so happy we hired Maxine to streamline, coordinate and improve our wedding plans. Maxine thought outside the box, creating a design for our wedding full of beauty and originality, while simultaneously making sure no detail was overlooked and all the vendors played well together! Friends and family still comment that our wedding day was fabulous -- and we agree!

Maxine's talent is not just providing the highest quality of service and a knowledge of her business that makes her so amazing at her job. She does those things, but what set her apart for me was that each event she creates is unique. Her work expresses her clients in the most wonderful way. What makes Maxine the best at her job is her love of what she does, which brings to each of her events a unique, wonderful and truely special quality that makes a wedding more than just a big party.

Our wedding was truly special. It wasn't just beautiful and a fablous party. The moment we began working with her, the process took on a quality unlike anything I have ever experienced. It was like our wedding took place over the nine months of planning. Every meeting, tasting, fitting and conference call was special.

She has an amazing ability to be completely organized, structured and on scheudle, while allowing her creative abilities to bring the most amazing elements to an event.

And when it came to the wedding day itself, we had created, with Maxine's expert direction, an event that even five years later, our friends and family still speak of as the best event they have ever attended. It was uniquely ours, but without Maxine, we never would have had the once in a lifetime experience we had.

Being an event coordinator in my previous life, I thought I could do it all. HA! I couldn’t have been more wrong. Maxine is truly a professional with extremely good taste and style. She listens and truly makes your occassion your own! She takes the time to get to know you, your mate and families and plans accordingly. We got married in 2002 and people are still talking about our wedding. It was a dream come true and wouldn't have been possible without her. I would highly recommend her!
