Congratulations on your engagement! For today’s engaged couples a wedding can be extremely overwhelming. Retaining a planner will allow you to relax, have fun, and enjoy the memorable experience of planning your wedding.

It is no secret that the event planning team you retain for your wedding is responsible for implementing every single arrangement of detail and design on the day of your wedding. This means, of course, that it is very important that you hire a consultant with the years of experience and knowledge that are required to ensure your special day will run perfectly smooth and flawless.

I have been planning weddings and events for over twenty years. While training as a planner, you learn quite a bit in the first five years, but usually, it is not until that point that your events truly run absolutely seamless. Most importantly, a professional wedding planner will eliminate any stress, save you from making costly mistakes and allow you much needed time to be with each other during your engagement.

It is with great pleasure I can announce that I and my associate partners remain at the top, on the cutting edge and are one of the most experienced teams in all of Southern California. My background in education is in Theatre Arts Production and Interior Design. I was awarded the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts Scholarship upon which I launched my talents for a career in the Arts. During my years of studies, I trained in opera with Mona Pauley in Los Angeles who performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City for over fifteen years. She was best known for her lead role in Carmen. After college, I received the lead roles of Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar and Hodel in Fiddler on the Roof. I also did live television for Saddleback’s local channels that aired locally in Orange County. Aside from my performing, I started a flower business and then crossed over to photography upon which I learned “first hand” about both of those industries. Before I began my career planning weddings, I was a catering manager for a well known chain of restaurants and it was that experience along with my theater arts & production background that lead me into event planning.

I am also a member of the highly accredited Association of Bridal Consultants upon which you must provide evidence of “continuing education” every year to renew your membership and keep your license number current. It is essential and is now required by all major facilities that event planners hold a current business license and carry million dollar liability. This is because Weddings are both very technical and administrative. Your skills must be strong in the areas of organization and communication. Your technology must be up to date and the very best. It takes a great amount of skill in all of these areas to produce and plan for you… the wedding of your dreams. Please be assured that I will work closely with you as a couple to design to your specifications and customize to your desires so that your wedding is distinctive to you as a couple.

Please enjoy browsing through my web site to experience my way of sharing with you my work, my passion, my services and my current wedding design concepts and press. It would be my absolute pleasure to have a complimentary consultation with you to discuss your wedding needs and desires. I will look forward to hearing from you and making an appointment to meet. Until then… congratulations again on your engagement and best wishes to you both!

Sincerely,
Maria Lindsay Read less

Maria was a dream come true! She made the entire wedding process easy and enjoyable. Maria was able to effortlessly coordinate a phenomenal wedding at the St. Regis within 3 months! I was a stress free bride and enjoyed each step.

I found Maria Lindsay from a simple google search and knew immediately that I wanted to work with her. I was not a local bride and knew I would need the help of a coordinator to keep my sanity! Maria helped me every step of the way in the planning process. She was always available via phone and provided fast email responses (to my very lengthy emails!). She was also very understanding when I wanted to change my florist along the way. Her services made my wedding planning experience much more calm than I expected! When it was crunch time for the wedding she allowed me to mail multiple items to her home so I would not have to pack 100 suit cases for the big day!

I felt totally at ease on the day of the wedding since she was handling everything and everyone that needed any direction!

She is a wedding coordinator who you definitely want on your side because she kept me in line with my time frame and kept all my vendors on track as well! She has helped me for months after the wedding to make sure I do not have any problems with my wedding album and access to my photos.

Thank you, Maria for an amazing experience and for all your hard work! It was simply icing on the (wedding) cake to have our wedding featured in Ceremony Magazine for 2012! Thank you for submitting our wedding!

I'm so glad we hired Maria! She was terrific throughout the whole process of planning our wedding. She drove my fiancé and I around for a whole day, showing us venue after venue and worked tirelessly on every detail of our wedding. Even though it was just a small wedding with 125 guests and not a huge budget, she always made us feel like we came in first place, and I know she was planning many other weddings at the same time. I have a lot of respect for how she handles everything. Needless to say, our wedding was a beautiful day I look back on with fond memories.

We loved Maria. She was very organized and always seemed one step ahead of us. We threw a lot of things at her all at once as we planned our wedding on our breaks because we're teachers. Maria understood our schedule needs. This was extremely important to us. Our wedding day was great and we would recommend her to anyone

We really loved working with Maria. She really proved her years of
experience while working on our wedding as well. In the beginning we didn¹t
know what we wanted or where we even wanted the wedding to be so she took us
out site seeing and by the end of the day we were certain. She put in hours
of time and effort and we really appreciated that. What was most important
to us though, was that she kept us in our budget. It never went over. We
really liked her vendors too. They were nice, easy to work with,
professional and worked together well. On the wedding day, we watched it all
unfold and kept saying to ourselves, we're walking through our dream! "We
can't thank Maria enough for that. In the end after everything is over, what
really counts are the memories and that she made it happen for us. That's
precisely why we hired her. Thank you Maria!
