“Maria is truly remarkable in wedding event planning and design. When we were unsure about something – she was there every step of the way, at every appointment, and on the day of my wedding she made sure every detail was perfect. Having a lot of experience in the wedding gown industry, Maria easily connected us with a wedding gown boutique where I ultimately found my gown (and she came to the appointment at which I found my gown). Maria was personable, budget-minded, and very resourceful. Planning for my wedding was a challenge in that the wedding took place in Toronto, but my husband and I had family and friends flying in from Russia, USA and even Cuba. She made both of our families feel very involved in the planning process, while still prioritizing what my husband and I felt was important for our wedding ceremony and reception. I very much enjoyed the wedding planning process because of Maria. Her experience and personality helped to make our wedding day truly a day that my husband and I will remember fondly forever as the best day of our lives. I have every confidence that if you choose Maria to be your event planner and design artist, she will more than exceed your expectations for your event.

“Maria and I met over 5 years ago and have now collaborated on numerous events and endeavours. Immediately when you meet Maria you know she is different. Her sincerity stands out, her commitment is unprecedented and her delivery is masterful! You have a dream, she has the vision and the plan to get you there. Be bold, dare to ask and she will bring light and reality to your dreams! Class and style are her signature, warmth and delight are her personality. Delivery and execution are her trade marks!
