I honestly don't think words can ever describe how amazing Beca/Maven Macaw Events is. She went above and beyond for every single thing at my wedding. We've had friends coming up to us since the wedding to tell us how much they loved her, how much they hope to use her if they get married, and how she was one of the best parts of the day. She wrote the most beautiful vows, ones which brought tears to our eyes and made us as happy as possible. I am so impressed and I feel so absolutely confident that our day would not have been the same without her.Oct 29, 2018Verified
Although she was already booked for the date I requested, she let me know ASAP which I like and says she’s prompt and professional.Mar 26, 2018Verified
I'm so excited for Rebeca to be a part of my wedding!Nov 9, 2017Verified
Rebecca never seemed to remember any details we discussed about our wedding, which was an elopement with no guests. We told her multiple times there were no guests, yet she wrote a script for the wedding that spent several pages address non existent guests. This really rubbed us the wrong way. Then in response to asking if we can shift the time of our ceremony by a couple of hours, to which a simple "no" would have been fine, she sends an email making it sound like traveling to our ceremony (from Boston to Salem) was some massive chore. We decided we didn't want an officiant who was so forgetful on the details of our wedding and so self centered, so we wound up finding someone else the day before instead. Perhaps in the future, Ms. Macaw can extend the detail she puts into collecting payments into taking care of her clients.Oct 7, 2018VerifiedMaven Macaw Events's reply
I'm sorry Colleen was unhappy with how things unfolded, and wish she had said something while we were still working together, so I could have made it right. 1. I sent my sample ceremony, which, yes, mentions guests, for us to edit together for a custom ceremony. The final text does not mention guests. 2. I also always double check important details-- like whether the elopement is still just the couple, or whether parents will be joining (which happens, often, during elopement planning). 3. I have young children. When we signed a contract for this job, a year ago, I planned my entire day around getting to and from Salem and making sure school pick-up and childcare was covered. I understand that for many, a two-hour shift is no big deal, however, that is not the case for me. 4. The response I received to that explanation was an email informing me my services were no longer required. Per our signed contract, I informed the couple I was still due payment, while also wishing them (and their new officiant!) a good wedding and a happy life together.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We exchange a few emails or calls, then usually meet up in person to feel each other out. If we click, we sign a contract.
