I hired Maris Events to help me with my New Year’s Eve wedding. I worked closely with Alissa over several months, and was so impressed by her, I can’t find words to accurately describe how much I appreciated the work she did.
During the planning, Alissa was always available to provide input and advice, even if it fell outside the scope of the planning package I selected (design and coordination). She was very mindful of my budget, and had great suggestions for vendors and alternatives to help me stay within budget - both overall and by category. She handled some of my more difficult negotiations and sensitive conversations with vendors, in a far more tactful manner than I would have been able to.
On the day of, Alissa was seemingly everywhere at once, but very discreetly. She positioned herself so her help was never obtrusive; but she was always right there to place that item in your hand (or put it away), almost before you thought of it. Not one detail went overlooked or forgotten.
In addition to all the wonderful things the other reviewers mentioned, Alissa is creative, highly organized, offered great suggestions, and is such a pleasant person to work with. There is so much value in not having to worry about the details on the day of, I cannot emphasize enough how valuable the service Maris provided was to our wedding day.

I can't even begin to thank Maris Events for all their help on our daughters wedding. Being in the wedding industry myself (I am a floral designer) I knew right away that I would need help with her wedding so I could focus and be the mother-of-the-bride instead of stressing out over all the details. Alissa and her team worked tirelessly to pull together our vision perfectly while allowing us to enjoy the day. In addition to all the coordination and design assistance, Alissa also created stunning paper products for us including menus, escort table assignments, thank you notes for the guests and table numbers. She was instrumental in bringing it all together. I would highly recommend Maris Events for all your wedding coordination and so much more.

Maris provided planning for our rehearsal dinner, welcome party, and wedding on Bainbridge Island. They were wonderful! Their ideas were very innovative, they were always accessible, and spent most of Friday and Saturday on location getting everything ready. We are from Texas, so Maris helped so much with the transportation of items needed for the event.

I would definitely recommend them and would use them for any event!

Maris Events is amazing!

My husband and I both work full time and lead busy lives, so having Alissa help us plan and work out all the details was crucial! We really appreciated how down-to-earth and relaxed Alissa was, while still being entirely professional and on top of everything! Plus Alissa is also a very talented graphic designer and transformed our muddled vision in to an even better reality.

We also could not be more grateful to have Ellie as our day of coordinator. Everything ran smoothly, and she made sure things were in place that we never would have thought to check on. It was wonderful not having to worry if everything was set up the way we discussed, because we just knew Ellie would make everything look awesome and completely trusted her to make any last minute judgement calls on our behalf!

Alissa (co-owner) was our day-of-wedding coordinator and she was AMAZING! I feel like I can't even call her a "day-of-coordinator" because she was totally involved from the very beginning! We had numerous emails and phone conversations - she was always available to assist with any questions we had and gave out recommendations for vendors. She even took us to her storage area so we could look at all of the decor they had available for us to use - so helpful! When I was worried about rain the week prior to my wedding, I emailed Alissa and she responded right away with a phone call to calm my fears and insure me that she would have a backup plan if that did happen. I felt instantly better! Alissa is warm, caring, positive, and energetic in all the best ways!

Maris Events is very organized with detailed spreadsheets to outline every aspect of every part of the day, including contact information for vendors and family, decor details, time logistics, sensitive family issues, and the list goes on. She contacted all of our vendors with the timeline and followed-up for final payments. And the timeline was down to the minute - my kind of gals! I am a type-A personality, super organized myself and Alissa was right in step with me. I felt so comfortable with her and completely trusted her with every part of the wedding. I never thought I would feel so relaxed the week and day of the wedding and I WAS! I barely thought about anything except getting married because I knew it was all in good hands. I handed over my boxes of decor and Alissa made it BEAUTIFUL! She has an eye for how to decorate and arrange tables. Literally, it was perfect.

I HIGHLY recommend Maris Events & Alissa for your wedding! They are not only amazing wedding planners, but they are amazing people! I feel grateful to have gained friends! :)

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Alissa for our wedding. After meeting with a handful of wedding coordinators, it was a no brainer to go with Maris Events. From the initial meeting they were extremely personable and conveyed confidence and professionalism while showing that they were really interested in us and our wedding. Alissa took all of our information/ideas, whether we had communicated these out loud, in an email, on a spreadsheet or in a conversation and put them all together in a very organized manner. Her planning details were impeccable. She also offered great new ideas throughout the planning process that really made for a special event, ie photo guestbook, seating chart poster (created by Alissa). She was always willing to meet our needs when it came to scheduling calls, meeting in person, and meeting with the venue and other vendors. Maris Events far exceeded our expectations, and everything about our wedding day was perfect thanks to them.

I am so happy I got a day-of-coordinator! I had done most of the planning myself, but was totally clueless how to make all the details come together. Meredith saved the day and was able to making my wedding both beautiful and flawless! I was able to enjoy my day and know with confidence that everything would happen at the proper time, vendors were paid, and that the bride and groom got fed (very important)!

I'm going to keep this sweet and simple, because if I let myself, I could go on and on about how amazing Alissa and Meredith are. I always felt that they listened to my needs/wants, they were always so positive and helpful, and they went above and beyond the call of duty, if you will.

They handled everything so professionally, and because they've known each other for so long, they play to each others' strengths, and work together seamlessly. I couldn't have asked for a better team to get me through such an important day.

After all was said and done, my day went absolutely perfectly, and I had not an ounce of stress. Amazing!!

Alissa and Meredith are an AWESOME team!!! We used them for day-of coordination services, and they were simply spectacular. They met with us several times before the wedding to go over timelines, details, and our vision, met with us at the venue itself, and helped us run through our rehearsal. They were always reliable, professional, thorough, enthusiastic, and lovely!

On the day of the wedding, they were just as incredible!!! They literally executed the day to perfection, keeping us and all the vendors on time and taking care of various issues smoothly and seamlessly. My partner and I both thoroughly enjoyed our day thanks to them!! We would highly recommend them to ANYONE--they work so well together and were literally just a joy and pleasure. Thank you so much Alissa and Meredith!!

I would highly recommend Maris Events! This being our 3rd daughter to get married, I can truly say that having Maris Events on board for this wedding was the perfect choice. Alissa and Meredith are a joy to work with. Their attention to detail, professionalism, creativity and ability to take care of it all with a positive attitude is outstanding! They carried the wedding day along smoothly, making sure that every detail was just as our daughter and son-in-law had envisioned. As for me, I was able to relax and enjoy their wedding and reception with our family and friends. At one point, hours before the ceremony and after extensive set up and decorations had been completed, the Mother-of-the-Groom (not a novice to weddings either) turned to me and said "It's all ready. I can't believe we even have time to relax!". Thank you Maris Events...You're the best! Sincerely, DelitaW
