From the first phone consult I had with Marci, I knew I had to have her on my vendor team. She was so friendly, helpful, and full of wonderful ideas from the beginning and only proved herself to be even more valuable as the planning process continued.
First of all, the website she gave me access to was one of the most valuable tools I had. Between budget tracking, idea boards, guest count, floor plans, timeline and every other aspect of planning, I could keep all of it organized in one place! We had three planning meetings (two of which were over the phone since I planned most of the wedding long distance) and a venue tour before the wedding, in which we covered every detail of the wedding day . By the time our wedding was 2 weeks away, Marci handled every aspect for me so I could relax and enjoy our wedding weekend. She managed all of the last minute emails, questions, set up/deliveries, scheduling, etc. If anything went wrong on our wedding day, I knew nothing about it! She is a jack of all trades! Not only is she a wedding planning boss, but she got to play hairstylist for me and pulled my hair into an updo before our reception when my veil messed up my hair! I truly cannot say enough good things about Marci. Her calm, collected, sweet, and organized manner left me feeling poised and ready for our wedding rather than stressed and freaking out. Every time I had a question, she was quick to provide suggestions and solutions. Her willingness to help and make our wedding perfect shows in every aspect of her planning. If you're looking for a wedding or event planner, your search can stop here. Not only will you walk away with a successful, beautiful, personalized event, but you'll walk away with a friend as well :)

Marci was a DREAM. From start to finish, Marci guided us through venue selection, vendors, design and managed all logistics. I was not one of those brides who had a set vision for their wedding day, but Marci managed to turn a few pinterest pins into my perfect day. She executed the most beautiful wedding I have ever attended (and my husband would agree!) while working within the confines of our budget. As an extremely indecisive person, it was incredibly helpful to be able to ask Marci “what do you think I want” and for her to quickly provide an answer. It is also a testament to how well Marci gets to know her clients and how she can predict the needs and wants of her brides.
On the day of, Marci managed the set-up and vendors so smoothly I felt like I could truly enjoy my day and not stress about any of the details. From bustling my gown, making sure snacks were readily available, and finalizing all décor details Marci managed to somehow always seemed to be there when I needed her while also making sure everything went seamlessly. I have attended a lot of weddings that do not start on time and she managed our timeline perfectly. I cannot say enough nice things about Marci, my wedding would not have been the same without her, and if you are thinking of hiring her do not hesitate!!!

Where to start! Marci was everything I could have imagined for a wedding planner and more. First and foremost, she knows what she is doing, and second, she is simply a great person to be around and talk to during such a personal part of your life.
As many others, we had to postpone our wedding a whole year and our original venue was sold and under new ownership, which changed many things for our day. Marci really led the way making sure we were still getting everything we wanted, despite these changes. Throughout the entire planning process, she was one step ahead on everything. She was so well connected to other vendors in San Francisco and provided us with amazing recommendations for our florist, band, catering, etc. During all of our calls, she was so on top of the right questions to ask (things I definitely would not have thought of but were very important logistically). On the wedding day, she was such a calming presence, I didn't worry one bit about everything going on at the venue because I knew she would have it handled. Everything went so smoothly and was completely perfect. If anything didn't go as planned, I had no idea and that is for sure all thanks to Marci and her team. Don't even think twice about hiring Marci as your planner.
