"We had an idea of what we wanted and you both surpassed everything that we had envisioned in our minds. We were all impressed with the parasols on the chairs, the beautiful flowers, the AMAZING dinner menu, and our unique desserts. Veronica and Betsey who did our hair & make-up were wonderful and all of the girls loved spending the morning getting ready with them. We were so impressed with the professionalism and creativity of Julie and Nathan from One Love Photography. Our DJ Sean did an amazing job and was so sweet! And our officiant Steve is an incredible man and the ceremony reflected us and our personalities perfectly, he was just outstanding.It was an absolutely magical night, and as stressful as weddings can be, thanks to your love, care, and attention to detail, we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves"
"Thank you so much for everything you and the OTBPW team did to make our wedding such a great event. The wedding was altogether fantastic and Gavin and I enjoyed every minute of it! It turned out exactly how we had envisioned it and we wouldn't have changed a thing."
"What can I say - Mary Ellen and her staff are amazing - beyond amazing.
Mary Ellen truly does specialize in off the beaten path weddings - and she's managed to curate the most incredible collection of venues, and cultivate relationships with the very best vendors.
She was always responsive, timely, worked within our budget, and had great and original ideas - and was also aware of things I would have never even thought of - another reason you want an expert planner with lots of local experience like her.
In addition to all of this, she ALWAYS went above and beyond and truly takes pride in what she does.
Our wedding was incredible - and so authentically us. All of our friends and family kept raving about the wedding - and the feedback all around - was hands down best wedding ever.
Mary Ellen, thank you for everything - it truly was the best weekend of our lives - and it was all because of you!"
"Scott and I wanted to thank you both SO much for the best wedding we could have ever imagined. We loved every moment and thought it was executed perfectly. The property looked stunning and all the little details were just exquisite. Thank you both for bringing us such a great team"
"I knew that I wanted to have our wedding be an Off the Beaten Path wedding. When I contacted Mary Ellen for the first time, I honestly felt butterflies in my stomach. Well, now that the event has gone by, all I can say is that my gut was right. Those feelings were all true and man...you gals didn't disappoint. All of our guests were blown away."
"The wedding was so amazing- our friends and family can't stop talking about how beautiful and fun it was. Everything about the night was exactly how I imagined it. The vibe, the look, the flowers, the food everything was perfect."
"Just to say, Ben and I think you are just such an amazing force, you are wonderful, we can't imagine how it could have been better... Thank you a million times over!!! Fantastic job!!"
