Raves & Reviews


Excerpt from WeddingWire

A wedding is only as good as the planning behind it, and our wedding was near perfect despite the global pandemic happening around us. The simple fact is that it would not have been the wedding of our dreams without the help of Mary. Her guiding hands helped keep everything safe, but just as beautiful as we originally intended. We not only worked through cutting down our guest list to fit the changing mandates, she also was a God send on the day of working with each guests comfort levels. She was like the wind, everyone was aware of her but in an unobtrusive manner. Her presence was calming, refreshing, and steadying. If you're looking for a stellar planner in general, hire Mary. If you're looking for a planner to navigate even the toughest waters, definitely hire Mary!


Excerpt from WeddingWire

Our experience with Mary was absolutely perfect. Definitely one of the best decisions we made! I cannot think of a single thing I would change. From the time she stepped in, Mary was always available either by text or email, and relieved our stress with a quick response or additional information - whichever was needed. On the day of the wedding, and even the time leading up to it, Mary was in constant communication with the vendors. I honestly did not do a single wedding-related "work" task from the beginning to the end of the weekend. If there were any complications or fires to put out, I had absolutely no idea. Mary is organized, experienced, and professional. She made it so easy to work with her and I would recommend her to any of my friends.


Excerpt from WeddingWire

Mary was so great to work with! We could not have made it through our wedding day without her! My fiance and I moved to a new city and both started new jobs all within three months of the wedding which was a huge additional stressor. Mary worked around our crazy schedules and helped keep us on track with planning and the million details that have to fall in to place before the big day. There were so many details that I never would have thought to prepare for without Mary reminding me. I never felt overwhelmed though because I knew Mary had everything under control to make our wedding wonderful. Mary was so thoughtful and caring and did everything in her power to make my dream wedding a reality.


Excerpt from WeddingWire

My  husband and I decided to do the nearly impossible, and 1. get married during a global pandemic and 2. plan a wedding in 4 months. I really needed Mary's guidance, experience, and resources. She kept me on schedule, made recommendations for every single vendor that were within my budget without compromising my vision, and had immense patience and professionalism when I didn't answer an email right away.

I was very grateful for all of Mary's hard work and guidance leading up to the big day, but I was even more grateful to have her there with me at the venue. She was so incredibly organized. I would absolutely recommend Mary Elizabeth to anyone, regardless of what type of wedding they had in mind because of her professionalism, ample resources, confidence, experience, and hard working attitude. She is a top tier planner hidden within the diverse cache of wedding vendors burrowed in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Any couple would be lucky and happy if they chose to work with her.
