Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day, Miranda! Your wedding turned out simply elegant and was a blast! Meeting nice people like yourself and Steven are the best part of my job :) Best wishes to you both!
MaryAnna was fantastic to work with. We met in advance, she took the requests for my wedding day to heart, and did a great job coordinating all of the moving pieces. I will definitely be recommending her to friends and family!Oct 25, 2017MaryAnna B.'s reply
I'm flattered you were pleased! Your wedding was such a beautiful, artistic event. I am grateful to have been a part of it! Thank you and best wishes :)
I very much enjoyed working with Maryanna. She really helped see my vision through and allowed me to sit back, relax, and know that everything would be taken care of. I highly recommend her for your next event.Sep 28, 2017VerifiedMaryAnna B.'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Clients are given a flat rate up front depending on their planning needs. There are several planning options to choose from. 1. Full, start to finish planning with Day of Coordination. 2. Partial planning with Day of Coordination. 3. Only Day of Coordination. 4. Full planning without Day of Coordination. 5. Partial planning without Day of Coordination. 6. Planning remotely. 7. Anything in between, completely unique to the clients needs. Clients can also, rent items without any planning. Please, ask about candy carts, money boxes and unique event decor!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After our initial contact, my client and I meet to discuss his/her needs. This could be done over the phone, if more convienint for the client. I provide a quote, we sign a contract and the adventure begins!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My first career was an ELA teacher. Although, it is not "glamorous", like event planning, it required a lot of organization, multi tasking, creativity and interpersonal communication skills. All of these traits are at the center of a successful event planner. To date, I have planned weddings, rehearsals, birthday parties, summer bashes and a communion. With each event that I created and organized I gained experience.
