"Her services started out with a phone consultation where my husband and I were able to ask questions about what her services include. After we hired her, I then met with her via Skype to discuss the details of our wedding while my husband was at work. The day before the wedding, she came to our venue for the dress rehearsal and ran us through the entire ceremony a couple times. Finally, where it mattered most, on the day of our wedding, Marie showed up with her assistants and connected with all of our vendors, set up all of the tables based on pictures I sent her, stayed in contact with my wedding party and family who helped with setup, checked in with my husband and I often, and kept us on schedule throughout the entire outdoor ceremony and reception! Marie also offered her assistance with any requests my husband or I had. She and her team did all this through the 40 mph winds that kept blowing everything off our tables! After reflecting on our big day and the weeks leading up to it, there's only one thing that I wish I would have done differently, which is to stay completely hidden before walking down the aisle. My flower girl and ring bearer took a bit longer to walk down, and my dad and I were standing visibly at the door ready to walk out for a couple minutes before we finally took our first step. I could have simply requested to stay hidden from Marie or hid myself until go time, however I thought of it too late and my husband already saw me. He still got emotional though so it worked out regardless! Other than that, everything was absolutely perfect!! Everything turned out so beautifully and the events were smooth sailing! Without a doubt, I would absolutely hire Marie again and again. I give her my highest level of recommendation, and I know every bride- and groom-to-be would be pleased with her services! :)"
