    I contacted Mariah towards the end of the wedding planning process when I realized I was overwhelmed coordinating with vendors and needed a third party person to help make sure the day went smoothly. I decided on the month of package, but she actually started about two months before the day of just to get more details and make sure I was on top of everything, which was really nice.

    I had done most of the work by the time I got her on board so I cannot speak to that part of the planning process but she really helped me out a lot by coordinating with the vendors and making sure I was okay thoughout. I decided I wanted to do assigned seating for my buffet style reception towards the end but got so overwhelmed by it that she ended up using my list and doing it for me the Thursday night before the wedding! I think she would have been willing to do whatever if I had asked even though it wasn't a part of our contract but I'm pretty OCD so did a lot myself.

    She did a great job making sure everyone was where they needed to be the day of and took all of my husband's and my stuff to our honeymoon suite. She also had a box of food from the reception waiting for us in the fridge!! That was amazing! She also made sure all of our stuff was accounted for, which I'm sure was hard because we had stuff scattered all around the resort. I even called her at 6am Sunday before we left for our flight to ask where my purse. Of course she knew.

    I would definitely recommend her. She's very nice, is up for anything and is so easy to work with. If she can do such a good job in that short amount of time I'm sure she will be great with 10 months!

    From the very beginning and during the interview process, it was evident to me that Mariah was a solid professional, with exceptional communication and organizational ability. Due to budgeting (fortunate that my parents’ funded the event), I wasn’t sure if there was room for a planner, but after going back and forth with Mariah on package/pricing options, I was resolute that I would pay for Mariah’s services myself, if my parents didn’t agree to a planner. Over the 4-week plus vetting process, Mariah was consistent with her follow-up (but without being pushy), and was extremely patient with all of my many questions and requests. And something that I found especially impressive: Mariah was sensitive to my busy work schedule; I told her 1 time, and 1 time only, that Mondays and Tuesdays were difficult/deadline days for me, and I never heard from her on those days, or she referenced that she knew I was busy and not to worry about responding until I could. In considering all of the above before we finally moved forward, I knew that all of these qualities would translate to her dealings with vendors… and they did.
