I had an amazing and seamless experience planning my backyard wedding reception with Maria. She was very patient throughout the process and executed the event exactly the way I imagined it - from the theme to the finishing touches. Maria is on top of my list for planning any future events! :)

Details: Wedding ceremony / reception • 26 - 50 guests • Event decor rental • Decor setup • Decor teardown and disposal

There aren’t enough good words! From the get go, Maria was responsive, communicative and transparent. She listened to all my ideas openly, helped me navigate my thoughts and was quick to help me out with whatever questions I had. My event - my daughter’s first birthday party - ended up being better than my wildest dreams. From the set up to the decor to the clean up, Maria and her team was perfect. I had not a single worry in the days prior because I knew I was in good hands and boy, was I right! She made me entire vision come to life, and even better! Her team is so friendly and polite and really felt like family. I CANNOT recommend her enough and cannot wait to hire her for future events!

Details: Child's birthday party • 25 guests or fewer • Partial planning (help in select areas) • Venue selection • Setup • Lighting • 3 - 5 months • Remotely (phone or internet)

Thank you for the beautiful wedding flowers that were ordered for the wedding. Flowers were just as beautiful as the sample photos we sent to you for the order. Delivery was as promised and timely. The bride was so thankful that you delivered such a beautiful bouquet that fit her budget. This destination wedding was a challenge to set up but your communication was reassuring to us. You were a pleasure to work with and responded to all of our questions in a timely manner. Highly recommend your services. Thanks again!

Details: Ceremony • Bridal bouquets • Boutonnieres • 5 or fewer members • Roses • Peonies • 20 guests or fewer • At the pro’s location

Maria was fantastic! She not only recreated the inspiration photo provided but she made it better by tailoring it to my wishes. She was punctual and efficient, flexible and really invested in making my event everything I expressed and more! Her decorations were the centerpiece and star of my covid baby shower! I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Thank you so much Jasmine for your kind words. We had a fantastic time designing this sweet candy cart inspired backdrop. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day. Many blessings to you, Donald and Mackenzie! 😁

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We understand that pricing is important to many clients. We've been in business for over 10 years and we've learned how to make the dollar stretch for events. We are very conscience of budget and will work diligently to provide a beautiful event within our clients target price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically we like to sit down (or video chat) with new clients to get a better idea of their likes and dislikes. We strive to create an event that is within the style and theme that our clients are wanting. We find meeting or discussing the event, gives us a better understanding of what will need to be done for the event.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I began in the event planning business when a former co-worker reached out and asked that I assist her with her wedding event. She remembered that I was stickler for details and thought this line of work would be challenging but fun for me. That first event was hectic and fast paced but I loved every minute of it. I continued to work for her until she moved to the hill country area. After her move she encouraged me to start my own company because she felt I had a knack for the work and would be successful. Since I started the business it has been full speed ahead.
