What Our Clients Have To Say...
Marcea was the absolute best from the very beginning, until we said I do. She made all the last minute details and scheduling feel like a breeze, and the day of, I had no worries because I knew she was on top of things making the day go by smoothly, allowing me to relax and take everything in. I could not recommend her enough! We were so blessed to have her apart of the best day of our lives.

It was wonderful having Marcea & her team for my son's wedding, but it's a whole different ballgame when your daughter gets married! There were plenty of moments in the planning & day-of when I (mother of the bride) was tempted to panic, but it was Marcea who kept me calm, while handling every last detail! It cannot be overstated how important this becomes when in the middle of your daughter's most important day & the gift it is to be fully present for her & for all the guests.
Kim G., Mother-of-the-Bride
My husband and I are so thankful that we had Marcea to help us through our wedding planning! She is very experienced in her work and knows exactly what to suggest when there are question marks in the wedding planning process. She has an inventory to draw from for decor and supplies and she is so helpful when it comes to planning a timeline for the rehearsal and wedding day. On the wedding day itself she coordinates set-up, makes sure everyone knows when to do their assigned jobs, and helps keep the couple and wedding party calm! She is wonderful!

MAGICAL & MASTERFUL! Marcea took our wedding vision and turned it into a magical event. We wanted an elegant evening with a focus on our family and friends. Marcea masterfully created just that! We had about 50 guests at a family member's lakeside home. Our ceremony was at a beautiful spot down by the water just as Marcea had suggested. In addition to supporting design and decor, she expertly guided us in planning activities and made sure the evening flowed well. It was wonderful to see guests relaxed and enjoying the night either sipping cocktails, making s’mores or having fun in the photo booth. Marcea is skilled at problem solving and she makes it look easy! When our photographer needed to cancel just days before the wedding, Marcea found three possible replacements within a couple of hours AND within our budget! Some of our flowers arrived brown and unusable, Marcea took care of it! When I had the wrong cord for the speakers, Marcea and her assistant got right to work and solved the problem. One of the things we valued about Marcea was that she is open and straight to the point. She was great at making suggestions and sharing insights to help carry out our vision. My husband and I describe the night as truly magical. We were able to focus on friends and family and had the most memorable evening. We highly recommend Marcea and are thankful for her expertise.
Tracy F., Bride
It was very evident that Marcea was experienced and knew exactly what she was doing. From our planning sessions to the day-of coordination, Marcea helped handle every little detail to ensure that the wedding ran as smoothly as I had pictured. She went above and beyond the day of the wedding and everything went exactly according to plan thanks to her! We could not be more grateful for her help and expertise during the whole wedding process!
Becca P., Bride
Marcea saved us during this Covid-19 time. We had a wedding planned in Southern California which we had to cancel and move our wedding up to Washington State. We had one month to plan a wedding, and Marcea made it everything we dreamed of and more. We were so thankful for her professionalism and her timliness on everything. Our photographer and videographer mentioned specifically to me that they loved working with her because she kept them in the loop of everything. We highly recommend!!!
Tyler & Jorden G., Groom & Bride
As the mother of the bride, I felt reassured that everything was taken care of and my focus was on my daughter and enjoying the day. It blew me away that I had nothing to do because it was all handled by Marcea. I was in awe at how Marcea handled everything with such grace and calm. The decor and table settings exceeded my expectations. She is a gem!
Keri H., Mother-of-the-Bride
It’s hard to put into words how much Marcea helped me and my husband throughout our wedding planning process and how much she helped me, my husband, our families, and our wedding party throughout our wedding day.
Throughout the year leading up to our wedding, Marcea dedicated countless hours to helping us plan. She would go to vendor meetings with us, ensure we were sticking to our wedding planning timeline, and made herself available at any time for questions we needed answered. One thing we love about Marcea is that she made us feel like we were her only clients. We wish we could bold, italicize, and underline that last sentence. She really made us feel like we were her only clients.
She made our wedding day perfect. She managed our wedding day timeline, ensuring everyone and everything was on time. She managed all of our vendors, helped set up and tear down, etc. If there were any hiccups during our wedding day, we didn’t know about them because Marcea handled them. She made our wedding day smooth and stress free.
Marcea is very knowledgeable about the wedding industry and can give you great advice on what works and what doesn’t work at weddings because of her experience. She also has a lot of contacts and can refer you great vendors.
We could go on and on about how much we love Marcea and how much she helped us, but we want to keep our review short so people don’t have to read paragraphs of text. In short, Marcea is phenomenal and she’ll be the best vendor you hire for your wedding. She went above and beyond what we expected from her and what a lot of other wedding planners would offer. We’re thankful for Marcea and we’re thankful that we can now call her our friend.

Marcea was an invaluable asset to the planning and execution of my niece's recent wedding. This includes offering expert advice for the many decisions that needed to be made, anticipating and resolving any issue that may occur and being very much "in charge" on the wedding day. My niece and our family did not have to attend or deal with anything. I found Marcea easy to work with. She is always professional, communicates clearly and remains calm (trust me, that is appreciated on the wedding day).
Marcea literally thought of everything - all details large and small. The wedding and reception went smoothly and beautifully. I can confidently recommend Marcea as a top notch Wedding Planner.
Michi Y., Aunt-of-the-Bride
Straight to the point, Marcea is a very professional, knowledgeable, and motivated wedding planner. She made the planning process very easy; she executed the day of amazingly, and she brought a beautiful creativity to our décor that just made everything so much fun, which was exactly what we wanted! She was ALWAYS prompt and flexible and a joy to work with. She always drove to me and accommodated what I needed. I can imagine our wedding was probably a challenge because most of our guests were from out of town, we have a ton of steps and sides to our families with some drama and poor communication but the whole day before and the day of event went so smooth and right on schedule. I didn’t have to worry about a thing! Thank you Marcea for making our day even more perfect than we could have ever imagined! One last thing worth mentioning, Marcea is based out of Bellevue but if you are farther north or south don't let that deter you. My husband and I live in Bothell and our venue was in Snohomish and she always drove to us, without question. It was so nice and convenient! She is so dedicated to her work and she will be for you too!
Brittany R., Bride
I’ve always dreamed I'd have this beautiful Pinterest-worthy wedding. But with such a small budget, I doubted it could happen. I also dreamed of the day being completely stress-free for everyone involved, but since when does that happen in weddings? Well, I can safely say that Marcea helped me achieve both. Everyone who attended was astounded at how beautiful the wedding day was and everyone involved was so relaxed. She is an absolute miracle worker. She made my day perfection!
Caitlyn B., Bride
The day before our daughter’s wedding I asked the groom how he was holding up. He had a lot on his plate with family arriving in town, multiple airport runs and last minute errands. He responded, “Wow, weddings sure do have a lot of moving parts!” I couldn’t agree more which is why I am so thankful we had Marcea in our corner. No matter how many balls we threw in the air she juggled them all with grace, kindness, and an indefatigable “No worries, I’ll take care of it!” attitude. Thank you, Marcea! The wedding was everything I could have dreamed of for our daughter and stress-free for me!!
Lori D., Mother-of-the-Bride
Marcea was the perfect wedding coordinator! She was very responsive, met up a few times prior to the wedding to confirm all the details we're met! I don't know what we would have done without Marcea as she made our magical night come together.
Sarah J., Bride
Marcea was an excellent choice as a coordinator. Our first meeting with her put me at ease right away. She knew the right questions to ask to get us focused. She gave great suggestions and was always willing to help with anything. We were so relieved to give her the vendor information and she dealt with them to make sure everything was being taken care of. She was a great help the day of the wedding as well, working with decorations, giving instructions, and always working to keep everything on track, quietly overseeing. Her attention to detail was amazing. She stayed until the very end, just a great help, very hands-on. We are forever grateful to Marcea. She made the wedding seamless!!
Coming from a family where weddings are the party of the century, my wife and I had a lot to live up to when planning our wedding. Luckily we had Marcea. I was nervous about who to pick and what traits to look for, because planning a 350+ person wedding is a lot to handle, especially with someone as detail crazed as me. However, once we met Marcea, it was like planner at first sight; we knew she had it on lock. She's friendly and sweet, but incredibly sharp and knows how to get it done and get it done right. She was so keenly aware of each and every detail from each and every angle and made sure our day was OUR DAY and nothing short of it. Marcea was a dream come true. There were so many elements of our day that we didn't even know that we had to plan or where to start, and she stepped right in and walked us through the entire process. From start to finish, our experience with her was smooth, easy and an absolute blast. If something went wrong through the process she had a solution ready to be executed before we even realized there was an issue and on the day of our wedding, not a single detail was missed, nor timeline off track. My wife and I can't say enough about Marcea and the magic she performed for us. We have already suggested her to any and all of our friends who are getting ready to plan their wedding or who are recently engaged. 11 out of 10, no questions asked.
Cameron M., Groom
I really enjoyed working with Marcea. I chose her because of many things that I will dive into below, but mainly because I felt she balanced me very well. I work in events and was planning the wedding myself, but I knew I would need a rock star coordinator for day-of execution, and Marcea delivered an unbelievable wedding day for my husband and myself! We were told by dozens of people it was the best wedding they had ever been to. People would not stop talking about OUR wedding for weeks!
•Professional - Marcea impressed me right away with her templates and organizational skills. My husband and I had no idea what our vision was for the ceremony and she helped lay things out so we could solidify all the details, because there are a lot of details to consider! When we booked her she instantly got all contact information for vendors, bridal party and parents to keep open and appropriate communication with all parties.
•Decisive - I can be indecisive. Marcea kept me focused and on track. She knew what I wanted and she helped me keep it simple. In a world of Pinterest and outrageous wedding ideas, sometimes you need someone who will help you stay realistic and focus on what is most important to you for your wedding day, not on things you like because they are trendy now.
•Creative/Connected - She had great suggestions of decor, ideas and vendors that were within our budget. She knows the industry well and was good at helping us determine our vision.
•Clutch - The morning of the wedding she walked a quarter mile in heels, in the rain, and down hill to trim the stems on all the bouquets (that sounds so bridezilla of me; I promise I wasn’t in bridezilla mode, or at least I don’t think I was :)). Let’s just say she went above and beyond to make everything come together. She also did an amazing job of decorating the ceremony and turning the room for the reception. It was so beautiful!
•Stayed until the job was done - She stayed all the way until the room was completely clean! She directed the service staff and clean-up crew on clean-up tasks to get things done quickly and efficiently and loaded up.
•Communication - Marcea worked with my vendors on timeline so that everyone was in sync on the wedding day. She conducted the wedding rehearsal as well so that the officiant, ushers, family members and bridal party knew their part and so wedding day would flow perfectly, which it did! She also was great at dealing with my venue when there were a few scheduling hiccups and other miscommunications that the venue messed up on.
Marcea did a wonderful job and was a first class coordinator!
Lauren T., Bride
Marcea has the rare quality of professional, organized persuasion without a hint of pushiness. Whether it is a wedding, or other important event, these tend to bring out the worst of personalities. Marcea is like a breath of fresh air upon frazzled nerves, emotions, and chaos. I cannot recommend her enough!
