We can’t imagine what our wedding would have been like without Elise and Sarah. They are the perfect team and provide exactly what a couple needs when looking for a wedding planner. To begin, they instantly grasped the look and feel that we sought to achieve and provided several options for each element – from decor to cake – for us to choose from. There is also no idea too ambitious for Marae – our wedding involved several custom items and highly choreographed moments, each of which Marae ensured was designed and implemented with perfection. From the moment we chose the venue until weeks after the wedding was over, Marae was never more than a call, email or text away. There’s no question in our mind that Sarah and Elise were instrumental in making our wedding as magical and memorable as it was.
We quickly realized that Sarah and Elise are two of the kindest, most professional, and most knowledgeable people you could ever meet. We shared our vision of the wedding and the party to follow, and also shared our budget. Sarah and Elise listened, asked questions, took notes, and assured us that they would come back to us with a variety of options that would both fulfill our vision and meet our finances. They did not disappoint. They were timely and communicative right up until the big day, and when it finally arrived, we knew that they had everything in complete control. They arrived early, and their calmness and kindness put us at ease. They executed the wedding and party flawlessly. It was elegant, beautiful, and beyond what we had ever imagined. We are so grateful for the perfect day.
Having Marae Events plan my wedding was the best decision I made- besides the groom of course! Marae Events created my dream wedding. They perfected and planned every detail. Their expertise and planning were nothing less than the best. Their communication with me and the vendors was always clear, straightforward, and timely. They lent their opinions but always listened to me and created my visions. Sarah and Elise with Marae Events were not just wedding planners but became friends and supporters. They were kind and fun to work with and were always genuine and honest. On the day of my wedding, I was able to relax and enjoy the celebration, and Marae Events took care of the rest! I cannot thank Marae Events enough for making our special day absolutely perfect! I very highly recommend them for any events!
