  • We would have been lost without our incredible wedding planner Mae Mallon of Beyond Smitten Events. A planner was absolutely crucial, seeing as neither of us lived locally. Mae was an invaluable resource, offering everything from design ideas to excellent referrals, but more than that, she became a dear friend and shoulder to lean on, particularly as the pandemic became an inevitable part of every discussion. She was patient, poised, and so well-organized, with a gentle spirit and eternal optimism that kept us afloat on harder days. Mae kept us steady and focused even when the horizon was hard to see. She helped us manage our budget, sent us excellent local vendor recommendations, detailed and set our timeline, ran our rehearsal, and communicated to our loved ones and team members with compassion and kindness. She even sent us notes of encouragement and little congratulatory gifts along the way. She was essential throughout the entire process, and blessed us big time.

  • When we decided to pick a wedding coordinator it was right before the beginning of the pandemic. We envisioned someone that would help us make decisions, guide us through the process of planning our wedding, and someone who knew what they were doing. We chose Mae with Beyond Smitten Events because she hit all those boxes and so much more. She helped us choose a venue, she suggested vendors that fit our style and price range, she was always polite, stern when vendors when things were off, and always wanted what was best for us and our wedding. Mae made everything about planning a wedding less stressful and more manageable for us both. Not only did Mae do all of that, she also did it during a pandemic. A pandemic where everything to everyone involved in the wedding industry was uncharted territory. From restrictions on how food was served to restrictions on guest count, Mae was able to navigate the state and vendors guidelines and translate that and make a normal wedding out of it. Mae h...

  • If you want an amazing wedding planner, I can’t recommend Mae from Beyond Smitten Events highly enough. She is adept at planning weddings large or small. I speak from experience as she organized two separate weddings for my wife and me. The initial wedding with 100+ guests was supposed to take place in Spring 2020 but was cancelled a week before due to the pandemic. Prior to the date, Mae helped guide us with monthly (sometimes weekly meetings) and would keep us on track. She dealt with the vendors and planned the fine details that most couples will overlook. When it all fell apart, she was so kind and understanding. Mae let us know that she would be right there to help us when we were ready, no questions asked. When we decided that it was time to organize an intimate (

  • Beyond Smitten Events made planning my wedding stress free- even during a pandemic! I chose to do the package with wedding planning and day-of coordination and it was SO worth it! Mae even helped coordinate my Rehearsal Dinner- she can do it all! Mae was so flexible, solutions oriented and organized- it was truly a dream to work with her! She was also extremely responsive to any questions or concerns I had throughout the planning process. She made sure that everything was done on a timeline, vendors were organized and honestly so many other details I hadn’t even considered. She made my entire vision come to life! On the actual wedding day- she made sure everything was set up perfectly and that all of the vendors knew exactly what to do and where to go. I feel so lucky to have gone through this process with Mae- she is amazing at what she does! I would highly recommend Beyond Smitten Events for your wedding!!

  • Thank you so much for everything Mae! It was an absolutely fantastic day we will never forget! You executed Melissa and Sam's vision so beautifully! Everything you and you team did was much more than we expected, and the details were truly amazing! We had to switch to a smaller wedding at a beautiful private property and you were totally flexible and super helpful! As the mother of the bride I needed plenty of help and you were always ready to help out with ideas, support, information, suggestions etc. And on the wedding day, even though it just flew by, I was able to thoroughly enjoy my family and friends! I loved our added Danish touches and traditions and so did my family watching from afar, We continue to receive compliments a beautiful, romantic and fun wedding! Thank you again Mae!

  • Every bride needs a day of coordinator! It is the best money you will spend! Mae is great! She has great attention to details. I really appreciate how she begins taking over far before your wedding. She makes you feel sane and helps you through it! She also works magic the day of. Literally, I wanted my outside ceremony decor brought inside for the reception and she made it happen (including my 10ft octagon arch). And I didn't even see her do it. She is great!

  • I'm so very thankful that my husband and I found & booked Mae as our wedding planner! She is super sweet, friendly, considerate, organized, professional (she always arrived early), and incredibly thorough (all qualities that I genuinely admire in a person)! I found her browsing on Yelp, The Knot, and another wedding website that I can't think of at the moment. As a busy medical student, I knew I needed help planning my dream wedding (especially since my now husband was away for business at the very beginning of the planning process). I reached out to Mae and mentioned my busy schedule, which she understood and didn't think my delayed emails were me blowing her off. I also explained the situation with my fiancé (now husband), so she was able to accommodate us and meet with us when he returned. Thankfully she was available for our initial wedding date of October 3, 2020. We hired Mae for partial wedding planning services, since we already booked our venue by the time we met with h...

  • Where do I even begin? I debated about getting a day of coordinator until multiple former brides told me it's a necessity (they were right). I was planning my Sacramento wedding from Southern California and I really didn't know much about the area or who to look to. So, I turned to all the different wedding websites and found Beyond Smitten Events. Mae was there for me from start to finish. Having that support system during the planning and especially the day of was hands down one of the best things I did for our wedding (and honestly, myself). Mae was incredibly responsive and so accommodating to us. Mae and her team had the day flow by effortlessly. I've heard horror stories of weddings, but I can honestly say not one thing went wrong and I truly believe that is because Mae and her team were behind the scenes guiding everything. I cannot recommend her enough to any bride looking for a wedding coordinator. You will sincerely not regret it. Disclaimer: Photo by Ashlynn Escobar ... Read more

  • We felt an instant connection from the moment we sat down with Mae for our consultation. We instantly started coming up with ideas for our wedding. She inspired creative thoughts and made us feel super comfortable. She is super personable, fun, and professional. We hired Beyond Smitten Events for their Month of Coordination package. I could not be happier with my decision to do so. Mae was there for every little question I had leading up to the wedding. She provided me with inspiration, ideas, and support when I needed it. She even went as far as to send me a handwritten note a few weeks before the wedding to show me that she truly cares. The day of was absolutely perfect because of Mae. We ran into an issue with the flowers and Mae jumped straight in to correct it without hesitation. She completely saved the day for me. I 100% recommend her to anyone in need of a planner.

  • Mae was the absolute best decision we made for our wedding. I found her here on WeddingWire and could not be more thankful for taking a chance on something I found via an online review! She went above and beyond to help us out, was thoughtful, organized, and excellent in managing family dynamics. Our venue was not an easy one (even though we absolutely LOVED it) as it was 1 mile down a dirt road and mostly outdoors. Mae took on the challenge with aplomb! She has a calm, professional and fun attitude that made our day so very special. She also executed the most beautiful reception tables and decorations in our outdoor born! There were MANY hiccups that occurred from vendor vehicles breaking down on the way to our venue for the rehearsal, to unexpected snow on wedding day (!) --> Mae + team handled all of the issues with grace and I can't begin to express how much her support, guidance and orchestration made our weekend flow so smoothly. We are SO SO SO thankful she was at the helm of ou... Read more

  • My husband and I hired Mae for day-of coordination. It was the best decision we made. She was so wonderful! Mae responded to every text and email almost immediately. I could not even imagine what our wedding day would have been like without her. I have a difficult time letting go of control. However, Mae made it easy because she saw our vision and made it a reality. With Mae, neither me nor my husband had to worry about a thing. Mae made everything so seamless, our guests and wedding party noticed and complimented us on how smooth everything went and how beautiful our wedding was. I highly recommend Mae and Beyond Smitten Events! 5 stars. (photography attached is the work of Stout Studios Wedding and Portrait Photography).

  • Mae was beyond amazing! My husband and I were on a tight budget so at first I wasn't going to hire a coordinator. But after trying to do everything myself, I quickly realized I needed help. I reached out to Mae and she was available to talk over the phone to go over our needs. She recommended her month-of-coordination services and I am so glad we went with her. Throughout the entire process she helped keep me organized, offered suggestions, and listened to our vision. On the day of the wedding she made sure everything went seamlessly without stressing us out. I highly recommend hiring her. I just wish I could have hired her to be our wedding planner throughout the entire process.

  • We got married just two days ago and are still feeling the excitement of our wedding day, which would not have been a success without Mae. I can't say enough wonderful things about Mae. From our first meeting at a coffee shop in San Francisco, it felt like getting together with a friend. We hired her for the month of coordination, but she checked in with us throughout the months leading up to our wedding and was always available to answer questions and provide advice. We were planning a beautiful outdoor wedding in Foresthill, CA. Then the week before we were hit with cold and rain. Our vision for a spring wedding turned into a winter storm. Naturally I began to panic, but Mae was amazing and quickly helped us think through alternative spots for the cocktail hour, and we managed to shift things around so that everyone could stay warm and dry. Everything turned out more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. And during the wedding I didn't need to worry about a thing. Mae had everyt... Read more
