Events by Mariel
Around December 2012 I contacted Mariel and let her know that we would only have about four months to plan the wedding of my dreams. Without hesitation she said "We have plenty of time". She quickly gathered so much vendor information and set appointments for us to visit them. By the end of January my engagement pictures were done, my caterer was chosen, my DJ was booked and the majestic location was selected for my dream wedding. Her quality of service is outstanding. When you work with Mariel, you do not feel like a client. You're her friend. She will give you her honest opinion, which to me is more than valuable. I loved working with her. I don't think I would've ever been able to do this without her. Thank you! Thank you for all your hard work, creativity, honesty and overall love for what you do so that in return you could make our wedding be more than just a wedding.
To all future brides, look no further! Mariel is phenomenal. Trust me, you will not regret working with her!
Where can I begin!!! I will try to get through this without crying but it will be hard! Talk about a dream coming true! Mariel words cannot express how thankful I am that God placed you in my life. When I told you about my dream over a year ago you promised you would make it happen. Not only did you make it happen but you surpassed any dreams that I could ever imagine! You are not only my event planner, you are a friend! Last night was the most incredible night of my life. Professionalism to the max, service, and details to the MAX! I am only lucky bride to have you be my strength throughout the process. You and your team are incredible and I love you all with all my heart! You truly made my dream come true! Thank you for making me like a princess! You are beyond amazing!
Where do I begin...Mariel was referred to me by my cousin in law after she noticed that the wedding process was becoming a bit overwhelming to me. She told me that Mariel was amazing and that I had to give her a call. After that initial call, I knew that I needed her in my life! Mariel became my wedding planner, friend, lawyer, designer...I can go on and on! Trust me when I say that without her, I think I would've gone crazy! Until you actually start planning your wedding, you don't realize ALL of the things that actually go into it and Mariel just puts everything in perspective. I had so many people at my wedding comment on how on top of everything she was and how her and her assistant kept everything perfect. Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime day and you don't want to be worried about a thing--having Mariel by your side guarantees that you won't! Do not think twice about it...hire Mariel and you will thank me!!! She's the BEST!!!!!!
Mariel is the dream wedding planner. Throughout the year of planning the attention she had to detail and out of box ideas was any girls whimisical dream wedding.
All the vendors she worked with starting with my AMAZING florist to a Killer DJ were beyond my wildest expectations. My guests were in complete AWWWW when they entered this whimisical wedding that Mariel helped me create. With out her my dreams could've possibly not come true. Consider her your fairy god-planner.
She is always positive (when I was worried about rain on my wedding she brought sunshine). My husband and I our forever grateful to have her as our planner and forever a friend. Her counseling tips are great during that planning time.
I would recommend her with my eyes closed for ANY event. Remember...she could be your fairy god-planner. :)
Words cannot express our gratitude, appreciation and thanks to Events by Mariel for our beautiful wedding. Mariel went above and beyond to ensure a detail wasn't missed! She has a great attitude, is professional, knowledgeable, creative, helpful, understanding and supportive. We could not have pulled this off without her. Our wedding was everything we wanted and more. Our family and friends loved it. We would highly recommend Events By Mariel!
I started with Mariel a year before my wedding but felt like I knew her longer right away. She is very energetic, motivated, and organized. Her attention to detail is truly a gift. There is not one thing that I could have wished for more from her. She was always available to listen, comfort, and give understanding. In life it is not every day you come across someone as genuine as Mariel. I am truly blessed to have worked with her, my wedding was beautiful. Mariel and her husband are a very special team/couple. I will be using EBM again for other special events and feel as though I have made a friend for life. Thank you again.

Mariel is truly a God send. Not only was she very easy to work with, she was also very professional and went to great lengths to make sure our vision came to life, and that we were happy! She took any last minute changes and unforseen events in stride and cleverly turned it into something even better than the original plan. Thanks to her, our wedding went smoothly and everyone was well taken care of. She is truly talented and would be a wonderful addition to anyone's planning process :)
Having Mariel as a wedding planner was a dream come true! She is amazing at what she does and executes everything flawlessly. Even though we live in New Jersey, Mariel helped us plan an incredible Miami wedding. She introduced us to many different vendors and helped us create a great team to hold our event. Despite being so far, I never felt that Mariel was out of touch- she was always available through text, email, facebook, or phone call. She always made time for us and somehow always knew the details of OUR wedding. Although she is clearly planning many events at once, you would never know. Mariel made me feel like I was her only bride every time we spoke. She is great at easing fears and concerns and acts like a therapist just as much as a planner. She is wonderful to work with and my husband and I both HIGHLY recommend her. She is a hard worker and so detail oriented, I would never choose anyone else to plan an event for us. The day of the event, like every other time, she was there for everything. Mariel thinks of EVERYTHING and adds personal touches that make the presentation over the top beautiful. Everyone who attended our wedding said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and SO much of that is attributed to the amazing work that Mariel did for us. We could never repay her enough- she is worth every penny, if not MUCH more, than she asks for her services! You will not be disappointed by Events by Mariel!
Mariel did an unbelievable job with our wedding, not one detail was out of place! She made this night the best night of our lives for both my wife and I. She goes above and beyond on every detail and can make anyones event a special and unforgettable one.
"The best wedding I have ever been to!" That is the comment we continue to hear over and over from people. We hired Mariel when we were all over the place with our wedding planning and needed major direction. Once we hired her, everything finally just fell into place thanks to Mariel. I knew exactly what I wanted just had knew clue how to carry it all out. I explained my dreams to her and she made it all happen. I really did not think it would ALL be pulled off... it was more than I ever imagined. Mariel was there for me every single day, every single step of the way. She would even answer my texts/calls late at night!!! She is so sweet, positive, up beat, and enthusiastic and her love for her job really shines through. Hiring Mariel was the best investment we could have made.. I could not have done it with out her! I highly recommend her services... you will be blown away. It truly was the most fun, amazing, gorgeous, magical night of my life and it was thanks to Mariel that my dreams came true!
I can't not thank you enough, Mariel, for all your hard work, dedication and for being there for me every step of the way. I enjoyed every step of it thanks to you! XoXo
L-ady that is very detail oriented with professionalism
I am not your typical Bride; I’m in a similar business and have an idea of what needs to be done. Events by Mariel was a Great gift and surprise from my Fiancé (at the time) and I’m the type of person that likes to do it all myself BUT I couldn’t have done it without Mariel. We worked as a team Shes a very organized individual that will put everything in place from meetings, budgeting, and bringing your ideas to life! This Lovely Virgo attends to details from your napkins being folded correctly to making sure you have lip gloss on and ready for the camera! Great to get along with to the point the bond turns into a friendship ;)
I Truly Recommend Events By Mariel !!
Hiring Mariel to help me for the wedding was the best money spent. I had nothing to worry about on my special day and whenever I had a concern she would not only help me sort it out but she would also give me her very helpful advice given her broad experience. I would highly recomend Mariel to any one that asks me for a wedding planner in south Florida.
Mariel: thank you so much for making it easier!!!!!
What can i say that probably prior brides have not said...YES, you are THE BOMB...great personality, very efficient, energetic, comforting. You really made us feel very at ease throughout the entire planning for our special day. But, even more so, the day of the wedding. Even though, we are sure there were some hiccups along the way, we never found out. We honestly give you a 5 across the board and strongly recommend you to any future bride and groom.
We hope to use you again for any of our other events,thank you, thank you for everything. Now who am I going to call? I'll miss you.
Brides DO NOT hesitate to hire her, she is AWESOME!
Maria & Andy
Hiring Events by Mariel was the best investment we made for our wedding day! Since the day we met Mariel she was enthusiastic and full of amazing ideas for our wedding day! She is extremely organized and easy going, two very important characteristics for a great wedding planner. It was such a piece of mind to know that she would be there and make sure everything went smoothly, and for us that was priceless. I would recommend Events by Mariel to anyone!
Mariel is a modern day miracleworker as it pertains to wedding. Being the youngest person ever to fly solo around the world I've seen my fair share of events and wedidngs. In just a matter of 4 weeks she put together a beautiful dynamic wedding in a 30,000 square foot aircraft hangar. Everyone was amazed and we received tons of compliments in regards to elegance, lighting, cake, etc. No detail was forgotten and both I and my wife were truly amazed at her work!!! I plan to utilize her services for other important events in my life and would recommend Mariel to anyone without a doubt!!

If you want to hire a professional for your wedding that is also a real person Mariel is your gal! She is down to earth, listens to your vision, questions and concerns and the outcome is spectacular. She is so creative and has so many ideas your wedding never has to be like anyone elses if you don't want it to. She sticks to your budget and still makes things look like a million dollars. She truly loves what she does and in the end you have a friend too!
We were recommended by our photographer to work with a wedding planner. It was the best decision we made. Working with Mariel took all the stress away and new ideas came to life. We couldn't be more happy with her service and care with all details. This is was a great experience and we will definitely use her services again.
Events by Mariel did an exceptional job with the coordination and planning of our wedding, and we would highly recommend this vendor to anyone who is looking for a responsible, personable, friendly, well connected and creative wedding planner. Thank you Events by Mariel for making our wedding a dream come true.
The complete professional with the personality of your best freiend, The BEST
Mariel was absolutely amazing with everything from start to finish. The only constructive feedback I would give is for the team not to keep giving me a new glass of champagne everytime I was almost out. I needed to be paced a little bit more, but every detail of planning to last minute emergencies were taken care of. I had no idea anything had been out of place.I had a PERFECT wedding thanks to Events by Mariel.
Mariel is incredible and was the reason our wedding was so perfect. Her and Virginia (her assistant) took care of every detail and ensure everyone was having a good time.
Mariel is truly amazing to work with. She was always available to talk or meet. In every meeting she was so prepared and organized. Throughout the process, it felt as if I was talking to a friend or my sister. She has excellent taste and provided us with very creative ideas to have a unique wedding.
From now on, I will call Mariel to help me with every event. SHE IS WONDERFUL!
Mariel has wonderfull... creative... modern... unique details and ideas.... She made my ideal-dream wedding come true... She was with me all the time, with the vendors... the decor... the meetings... She really love her job... She was my best support throughout the planning... I really enjoy working with her and the staff... Thanks Marielita
Mariel was absolutely amazing and a lifesaver for me during the planning process. She stepped in when another planner fell through and went above and beyond throughout the 6 months I worked with her to create a dream wedding for us. She not only recommended incredible vendors which I was equally impressed with, but organized things down to the smallest detail so I had no worries on my wedding day. She answered countless of my calls that began with "I totally forgot I needed this..." or "We changed our mind and now want this..." with "Not a problem...I'll take care of it". She is a DIY-queen who creates amazing invitations, favors, programs, even votive candles...and it is obvious she loves what she does. I could go on for a while, but above all, I truly felt we gained a friend in the planning process, and I would recommend her without reservation.
I highly recommend Events by Mariel for your wedding or any other event planning services needed. She took charge of all the negotiations, worked with various vendors on our behalf, researched ideas, and saved us a large amount of money.
Mariel and her design team suprised me with handmade wedding programs, place cards, wedding favors, and even a beautiful sign in book. She sent pictures of different ideas for flowers, cakes, favors, etc. She also put us in touch with an exceptional photographer. She was always at my fingertips when I needed advice or had a question and never had to ask her a question twice. She will be a friend for life and is great at keeping the bride calm :). Every detail was perfect!
Our wedding was in the Grand Bahamas and Events by Mariel is based in Miami. She worked diligently to make it all happen without being on site!
If anyone needs a referral, please feel free to contact me anytime. I can't wait to use her again!
I highly recommend Events by Mariel. She is very professional and her work is excellent.
I hired events by mariel to do my cake tooper. Not only she did a great and beautiful job, she also drove to my house to deliver my cake tooper because I was too busy wiht the final preparations for my wedding that I did not have enough time to go to her office.
Mariel thank you very much. You made it very simple for me.
Choosing Events By Mariel to plan my wedding was the best decision I made. Mariel goes out of her way to put you at ease throughout the entire wedding planning process. She is very open to new ideas and is willing to listen to your wants and needs. When it comes to decor, she is beyond creative and is always coming up with new ideas. She is supported by a hard-working team that helps her in many ways including producing all decor by hand. Once your wedding day has passed, you'll want to help and work for her! In addition, she is extremely professional and accessible; she is always only a phone call or text message away. My wedding was beautiful and I owe it all to Mariel!!

Choosing Mariel to plan my wedding was a load off my mind. I had zero time to do it. I told her what I wanted and she took it from there. "No Worries" That was her motto. Mariel was very professional and but more she was very personable. Every vendor I dealt with were all so kind and attentive to my special day. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, Mariel, for making my special day the success that it was. I highly recommend Events By Mariel for any event you are getting ready to have.
Vendor response to review
Thank you so much Diana for your kinds words they are greatly appreciated. It was truly a pleasure to work with you! I hope to see some pictures ;)
Hope you are all doing well ;)
Working with Mariel is wonderful. She is such a genuinely kind and helpful, and always has a smile on her face. While my wedding was small at around 55 guests, it was quite the logistical effort to plan. I live in Vancouver, BC and the wedding was in Tucson, AZ. My younger sister recommended Mariel because she had worked with her before on other events, and said she was fantastic. So now I had a wedding planner in Miami! But really it couldn't have gone smoother. I never once felt that I wasn't getting the attention I needed because I was far away. Mariel was on top of it, and always came through.
My ceremony was small and simple, but I did have a few small details that were custom-made for it. Mariel wrapped them up carefully and packed them in her famous 'Wedding in a Bag' suitcase. Not only was it cute and super convenient (my sister brought it on the plane as her carry-on), but all the pieces arrived safely. The wedding was beautiful and turned out better than I could have imagined. It was a dream.
The services rendered by Events by Mariel, were phenomenal, classy, beautiful and beyond anything I could have ever dreamed of. She was not only a wedding planner but also a friend. Brides tend to get extremely nervous as the wedding date approaches, but she not only helped me stay calm but helped to keep my mind at ease knowing that my wedding was in very good hands. Always keeping me up to date on what was going on and how things were coming along. She always kept in direct contact with me and even during the actual ceremony as nervous as I was, when I saw her running around making sure everything was perfect I knew I could breathe a little easier. Her details were breathtaking and she really cared about making my special day the best day of my life. Not only did Events by Mariel make my day an unforgettable one she made my dream of having a fairy tale wedding come true! Thanks Mariel!
It was a pleasure having such an amazing and dedicated staff working so hard on my very special day. I highly recommend this company for the planning of any event.
Mariel truly is a professional in every way. I recommend her services mainly because of how detailed and creative she is. If you dream of your wedding being the perfect day...stress free... Events by Mariel should be your cordinator. I garantee if you meet her, not only will you hire her, she will be your new best friend!
My wedding would not have been complete without the help I received from Events By Mariel. Mariel is exceptional in her creativity and with her gift of just making it happen.
We wanted a beautiful & intimate sunset wedding and that's exactly what we got! My husband and I are both Caribbean and we wanted a traditional Caribbean wedding! The design team at EBM worked hard to create invitations, favors, flower arrangements etc... authentic to our caribbean heritage. Not to mention, the EBM team catered to our every need from begining to end. The best and most important thing for us was to relax and enjoy our wedding and we did...
Thank you EBM for making our wedding a unique & unforgetable experience.
May God continue to bless you with creativity and success!
Events by Mariel is the perfect wedding planner! Their services are exceptional! Mariel is always available and I found this was one of the most important features for a nervous bride!

I still use them for all my parties!
Service Beyond Expected.
It was perfect, I was able to enjoy not only the planning but also the most important day of my life. She thought of every intricate detail and made everything look so easy. She just one of those people that can do it all. I really have to hand it to her, it was simply amazing. She truly went above and beyond the call of duty to cater our every wish. I would definately recommend her services.
Thanks to Mariel & her wonderful staff my dream wedding became a reality. I couldn't have asked for a better or more professional staff. They paid attention to every detail imaginable! My wedding was unforgettable thanks to Mariel & her staff. 3 years later I contracted them for my baby shower & within the next 2 months I'll be calling them to help plan by daughter's 1st birthday! I could not thank them enough for being so wonderful & leaving all my events worry free.
I cant imagine having planned my wedding without her! I didnt know where to start. Mariel took care of everything and made sure to assist me every step of the way. She made sure that my wedding day went off without a hitch! Thank you Mariel!
