"Marie truly helped us through each step of the wedding planning process and not only acted as our planner but oftentimes my personal outlet for wedding stress and was a wonderful sounding board for ideas. She ensured that our day flowed perfectly from start to finish and despite impending rain, managed to keep me calm! She is organized, detailed, and passionate, and quickly became someone I knew I could trust to help me with the importance of my wedding. My husband and I cannot recommend her enough!"

“Marie and her assistants were so on top of everything and got everything decorated perfectly. It looked better than I could have imagined. She tied up every loose end well before wedding day and just made the entire day so easy for not only my husband and me, but also our family. She was fantastic!
We've had a couple friends get married recently and their coordinators made me really nervous. I am a total control freak and usually it would drive me NUTS not to oversee all the decorating and details but I was so relaxed and confident that Marie had it covered and everything looked so much better than I could have imagined. I was in total awe of how amazing everything looked. I would not have changed a single thing about it and am so glad I lucked out choosing Marie!"
"We absolutely loved working with Marie. She is amazing at problem solving on the spot. Anytime something came up, she didn’t stress out, she just calmly came up with a solution. She is incredibly sweet and feels like a friend but at the same time is able to be firm when she needs to be. She was right there when we needed something, but otherwise let us totally enjoy our day. She is incredibly detailed and meticulous in her planning. Along the way, she would send me updated to do lists so I knew exactly what needed to get done and when it needed to be done by. She broke down the overwhelming wedding planning process into bite sized pieces that we could manage. She helped me build and manage our budget, and she even helped us organize our décor before the wedding day. She asked me so many questions to make sure that we got the exact wedding that we wanted. We could really feel how much she cared about her job, and how much she wanted us to have an incredible experience. She helped us pull off our dream wedding day, and I recommend her to everyone I meet!"

“Next to marrying each other, having Heart and Soul weddings coordinate the events was the best decision we made on our wedding day; it was perfect, and we owe this entirely to Marie. Marie brings together the diligence of a project manager with in-depth industry expertise. She is poised, professional, detail-oriented, and –as the name suggests—contributes much heart and soul. She guided us from the beginning: She asked detailed questions, provided suggestions based on experience, brought our attention to things we hadn’t considered, always communicated clearly, and flexibly incorporated last-minute changes. She developed detailed timelines and took over communication with vendors a few weeks before the wedding, an immense relief!
Moreover, from planning to the actual wedding day, she advocated for us at every step (even when we asked her to extend the evening by 30 minutes so we could continue celebrating). She and her delightful team did everything as the wedding day unfolded: they lovingly set up decorations, they directed guests, bridal party, and photographers, and they ensured our needs were met. We could truly savor the day as a result. We both noted that we didn’t have to worry about a single thing and could just experience the euphoria of being with everyone we loved most.
At first, my husband was convinced that a day of coordinator was superfluous, but now he claims it was the most important investment we made in our wedding. If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, look no further. Heart and Soul Weddings will give you the wedding of your dreams!”

"Marie was the best investment we made into our special day. From the beginning, she put us at ease and we had complete confidence in her. Marie has fantastic attention to detail and a keen ability to manage all the aspects of the wedding planning process, including the planning timeline and our workflow as the bride and groom.
Not only was Marie easy to work with, a great communicator, and the most reliable vendor we worked with, she also is kind, caring, and empathetic - someone you certainly want by your side on the most important day of your life."
EMILY & WILLIAM
"I cannot begin to express how impressed we were with Marie and her team. Our wedding could not have been as amazing as it was without them. Right off the bat, Marie was extremely helpful in the planning process. She answered all the questions we had, ensured we had everything covered, was always there when we needed her, and was extremely detail oriented. She made sure that she understood our vision for our big day and went above and beyond in making our dream a reality. Marie and her team were so kind and hardworking and we could not thank them enough for all that they did for us leading up to the wedding and on the day of. If I could give her 100 out of 5 stars I would in a heartbeat. You can tell that Marie truly cares about those she works with and puts her heart into what she does. If you have a chance to work with her, please jump at the opportunity. You will not be disappointed!"

"We cannot say enough good things about Marie. I will be honest, when I thought about wedding planning a wedding planner was a nice idea but a nonessential, but Marie shifted my perspective on that ENTIRELY. She’s the type of planner you want to make SURE you have. Marie went above and beyond anything I imagined. She got every single detail of the day down beforehand including what we wanted to eat from our buffet and what flavor cupcakes and what drinks, so we didn’t have to lift a finger. I attended a wedding recently and it made me ALL the more thankful for Marie (which I didn’t even think was possible because we’re already so thankful for her) because I realized just how much she took care of! My husband and I said over and over that we felt like we were just crowd-surfed through the day! We didn’t have a single care in the world because Marie took care of it and all we felt was LOVE. I didn’t even remember my timeline day of and everything flowed without a hitch. Our families also adored her because of how prepared, professional and on top of everything she was and have been recommending her like crazy ever since our wedding day."
"I started my search for a Day of Coordinator over a year prior to my September 2019 wedding. Since I am often labeled a planner, I assumed I really only needed someone to show up the day of the wedding to hold a clipboard and run through my day that I had spent almost two years planning. On my first call with Marie I was amazed by her professionalism and her knowledge of weddings with only a few under her belt. Her price was extremely reasonable and I felt a level of trust you don’t always get with wedding vendors.
Throughout the next year Marie reached out every month to check in on things and gather details so that I wasn’t bombarded right before my wedding with a million questions. In the five months leading up to the wedding we met with Marie in-person twice and every time I liked her more and was reassured on our choice to have her as our coordinator. I also soon realized the amount of work that planning a wedding and coordinating with so many vendors is – Without Marie I probably would’ve been a mess. She came by our venue a few months out to get a lay of the land and really educated my husband and I on things we overlooked – even down to helping when we made a bad decision on rehearsal dinner location.

The day of our wedding, all of my vendors knew where and when to be there because Marie had called everyone prior to the wedding and gave each vendor a detailed timeline of the day. She dealt with a vendor who caused some issues by not complying with the plan. She kept her composure, handled the situation, and kept me calm (which isn’t always easy to do). She spent hours the day leading up to my wedding helping me decorate and went over and above on clean up that night.
Overall, I can’t thank Marie enough for the amount of effort she put into my wedding. She was critical to the day going so smoothly even with the bumps we experienced. She allowed my husband and I to have such a wonderful day without any stress and let us be at ease knowing we had so much confidence in her.
It’s rare for a wedding vendor to go beyond what’s in the strict outline of a contract, but please know that Marie is going to do everything within her power to make sure your wedding day is perfect, regardless if it’s written out. She takes her job seriously and she is extremely passionate about what she does. You will not regret hiring Marie to help with your wedding!"
