Mariah was the day-of coordinator for our mid-May Big Sur wedding, and we wish we could have worked together for longer! She was an incredibly calming presence from the moment we met her during our ceremony rehearsal, and seamlessly took on mul...
tiple responsibilities over the course of our wedding day to make sure that we didn’t have to worry about anything but enjoying ourselves. She handled everything from playlist switching to heating up some items for our dessert bar, all while setting up the event, keeping the day’s schedule on track, and coordinating all our vendors and guests to follow our set timeline. Our wedding day was genuinely stress-free thanks to her expertise, and we were able to fully enjoy our time with our loved ones.
She also has incredible relationships with several vendors in Big Sur - she knew our shuttle driver, caterer, venue groundskeeper, and bartender, and clearly was treated as a trusted partner by all of them. It added an extra element of community to the day which was lovely to experience.
And bonus: she gives off such a warm, kind energy. Even though we had only really worked together for a day and a half, she texted us the morning after our wedding to ensure that everything had gone well after she and the other vendors had left for the night.
Overall, I highly recommend Mariah for any event planning or coordination needs! If we ever plan another event in the Big Sur area, she’ll be our first call.

My fiancé and I were planning a destination wedding to Big Sur, California. I thought it'd be easy, as we were planning a small wedding, but anxiety began to build quickly as the to-do list began to grow. I decided that we needed to hire a wedd...
ing planner. From the first moment of talking to Mariah, all worries disappeared. For each detail, she knew multiple people and multiple directions that could be taken. She was such a breeze to communicate with on a regular basis. Her personality was happy and positive. She was respectful of cost by presenting multiple options with varying monetary ranges. She clearly had our best interests in mind. If you hire Mariah, I am certain that the day of your wedding is going to be smooth, happy, and beautiful - highly due to her work. What more could you want?

She has a high attention to detail and truly thinks of everything! Knowing Mariah was there to literally run the show provided tremendous comfort to not only myself but to my family as well. Our guests kept remarking on how outstanding our wedding was, and that was largely due to Mariah's expert planning and all around design services!!
Do yourself a favor and hire Mariah!!

We had actually already been in talks to work with another planner before we signed on with Mariah. We decided that we had to part ways with this planner due to personality issues and were immediately won over by how friendly, responsible and e...
asygoing Mariah seemed over the phone. I knew in my gut that she was the right coordinator for us, despite having to let go of a beautiful venue attached to the other planner. Boy, did we make the right decision! Not only did we end up finding another, far better venue, Mariah worked tirelessly to make sure that every detail was perfect. Even when there were some last minute touch-and-go situations (it wouldn’t be a wedding without them, right?) Mariah was totally on it, and made the day go on without a hitch! Not only did she help us have the wedding of our dreams, she actually saved us money by recommending local vendors we couldn’t have found without her! I think the best part of working with Mariah is that she genuinely cares and champions your vision. She is fully aware of how important this day is to you. And trust me, this is not the case with every planner we talked to. To top it off, she’s a Big Sur native, and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Literally every vendor I talked to in the area seemed to know her name—Of course, this made things a lot easier, since she had previous experience working with them. We feel certain that this day would not have been as magical without her and we can’t recommend her enough!

Working with Mariah was hands-down one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process. Navigating and planning a Big Sur wedding can be daunting (but so worth it) and Mariah helped navigate the ecosystem flawlessly. I cannot than...
k her enough for all that she did leading up to our wedding as well as her presence and professionalism during our wedding weekend. She left no stone unturned in terms of details and logistics. So many people commented on how great and poised she was as she took control of the rehearsal, the actual wedding and all of the nitty gritty details.
Many people say how insane their wedding day and how it goes by in a flash. Mariah was a big part of the reason our wedding day felt relaxed, calm and truly enjoyable; she managed the flow of the day perfectly. It felt effortless, but I know it wasn't. She's a gem, and you should absolutely hire her if you are planning a Big Sur/Carmel/Santa Fe wedding!

Mariah was our day of coordinator for our wedding at Bar SZ Ranch. She brought Blain with her to assist. They both did a great job.
Mariah got in touch with all of our vendors in the month before the wedding, and she was attentive to the deta...
ils relevant to each vendor. She worked with us to build the timeline that made sense for the wedding we wanted. She helped us structure the timing of the speeches, and when to move people through dinner.
Naturally, there were little hiccups, but with Mariah and Blain there, we didn't even notice. She let us be at ease and enjoy the day and helped solve the issues that came up. They were helpful with decor. Blain is a florist, so she was very familiar with what was best for the arrangements we had brought. Since it was a bright day, she suggested that we place the centerpieces under the tables to save the flowers. But by the time the reception started, all was reset. They managed the caterer, and the DJ. Mariah even found time in the schedule so that we could quickly rehearse our first dance.
Mariah also added on a few hours to run through the ceremony the day before, and to help oversee the caterer setup for our dinner on Friday. When the caterer was late, she stayed an extra hour to help get everything sorted. I even saw her cleaning up a broken glass - no idea how that broke - but the moment is emblematic of the experience working with Mariah. She'll solve problems and keep the day running smoothly, so that you can enjoy it. Thank you Mariah!

ing prior to the wedding as well – she knows all there is to know about Big Sur and was able to recommend and connect us with any type of vendor that we asked for. A few weeks before the wedding, we were stressing out with all of the boxes left to check on our list. We had a call with Mariah and immediately felt better. She helped us organize our timeline, seating chart, shuttle schedule, rental order, decor… you name it. She was also amazing at our rehearsal – we were getting married in a redwood grove and Mariah helped us all to work our way around a steep slope and provided amazing suggestions and guidance for the ceremony. On the wedding day, we did not have a worry in the world because we knew we were in such good hands with Mariah. She just has this big smile and a very calming presence about her… you’ll see ☺ There was even a slight hiccup with one of our vendors on our wedding day and we had absolutely no idea that anything even happened until a week later – she quickly found a solution and spared us the drama. THAT is how good she is. Thank you so much for everything, Mariah! Truly!
