  • Look no further, you have found your planner (your girl, your to-do’er and your new bff)!! Maria is such a gem, seriously the best at what she does. Let’s be real, wedding planning is HARD! But with Maria, you will get through it and your wedding will be as perfect as can be. She will talk you through your vision, ideas, issues, and everything that comes between. She is understanding, kind, sweet, patient, super responsive and resourceful. She will be the calm to your storm during the exciting yet stressful time of wedding planning. Believe me when I say, there is no one else you want By Your Side. Thank you Maria and By Your Side Events. You are unbelievably amazing!

  • I highly recommend Maria from “By Your Side Events” as your wedding coordinator! Maria was truly professional and a delight to work with. As a fellow business owner in the industry I was able to communicate with her through email and she responded in a timely matter. I truly appreciate her partnership on crafting the perfect micro wedding for our client. She even went above and beyond by flying from CA-NYC two weeks in advance to quarantine before the big day!! I have much respect for a fellow businesswoman who diligently follows CDC standards and has true compassion for the safety and wellness of her clients. We are so glad to of had the opportunity to work with such a wonderful person and look forward to partnering in the future!

  • I was able to have the best time at our wedding because of how prepared I felt leading up to the wedding. On the day of, I knew Maria and her team had everything covered, I felt so safe and secure! If there were any fires on the day of, we never knew (even family members were commenting on how smooth everything was) she was such a rockstar. If you are up in the air about who to hire, book Maria now, she is worth her weight in gold!

  • We were so lucky to come across Maria and her team, our wedding day was perfection thanks to Maria, Erin and Sonja. We worked with Maria during the planning process and she was so great at keeping us on track timing wise as well as keeping us within budget. She always took our call, answered every text and email and always had an answer for us and made us feel so at ease through the whole process. Thank you Maria and team for EVERYTHING!!

  • We hired Maria from BYS Events after finding her on Instagram and loving some of the photos from weddings she had done. On our initial phone call we just clicked and knew she would be the best for us as we planned our destination wedding in Sonoma Co. We loved that she had been doing weddings in the Sonoma/Napa area for a few years, but that she wasn't doing 40+ weddings/year like some of the planners we had talked to previously. She made our day so stress-free that I would have thought she had been in the biz for 20+ years. I am so thankful for her and her assistant that she brought the day-of.

  • Definitely the best vendor we hired ever! Maria was so awesome during planning and helped us with EVERYTHING. Then when it came to the day of, Maria and her team (amazing team!) literally thought of everything, we had a bit of a challenging set up and even had to go back and forth on a rain plan but she was so helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. Thank you so much for making our wedding day flawless and do special.

  • As a groom in charge of planning a wedding the pressure was on! I am so glad I came arcoss Maria when I did because she saved both me and my wife time and money, Oh! And dont forget about the stress!!! I can’t thank Maria and her staff enough. We met with Maria, shared our vision and budget and she brought it to life. My advice to everyone reading this is to just have fun, don’t stress and just let Maria do her thing. To all the newly weds out there look no further go with Maria!

  • Maria and her team seriously think of everything! I am in the hospitality industry therefore I had significantly high expectations when it came to my wedding. Not only did they have our entire wedding process run smoothly, but Maria somehow knew exactly what to say to keep me calm. Maria is based out of Napa but was able to hit a home run when it came down to my destination wedding in Hawaii.

  • Maria was amazing! I hired her for day-of, and she was amazing and so helpful throughout the process leading up to the day. Very punctual (love!) and we were in constant communication; any problems or concerns I had she was able to help me through and fix! I had a very simple set-up/reception party planned, and she set it up perfectly :) She even had his and her's drinks awaiting us at our table when we arrived! We hit a snag with our playlist not playing due to the lack of reception at my venue (didn't know beforehand); Maria, despite my protests, sat outside in the cold and downloaded my entire playlist (!!!) and it saved our night (literally; our dance party would have been ruined!). She and her assistant were so amazing, and I cannot thank you guys enough!!

  • Thank you so much to Maria and her team! My sisters wedding day was so smooth thanks to her. Our family can be a bit much sometimes but it never rattled her, she was the calming force for my sisters wedding and made us all feel relaxed and secure. We couldn't have had the day that we did without her, thank you so so much Maria, you are the best! I would recommend her to anyone over and over again!

  • From the minute we talked to Maria on the phone, we knew we made the right decision in hiring her to be our Wedding Planner. We were planning a destination wedding and we were so nervous about all of the logistics but she made us feel so much better after getting off the phone with her. Once we hung up after our initial phone call my fiance literally let go of his breath he had been holding for a while! She was so organized and on top of everything and always had a solution to anything I threw at her. She made our wedding day everything we could have ever hoped it would be and even threw in some surprises herself! She really listens to you and that shows in her work. Thank you so much to Maria and her wonderful team for everything you did for us to make our day stress free and beautiful!

  • I honestly cannot say enough about Maria! She was available 24-7, literally took care of everything because we were a destination wedding so she met with all of the vendors and I never once had to make a trip out before the wedding because she had everything taken care of which saved us time and money! I feel like I have known her forever and we only worked with her for 5 months. That’s just her personality. She’s so sweet and kind and knows her stuff I would recommend her a million times if I could!

  • I hired Maria as my month-of coordinator. She helped me get organized and fill in the missing details that were needed for the big day. I recommend her services to anyone that does not know wedding day details and does not have hands-on assistance from family and friends (for example, calling and coordinating with vendors and helping pick up and place decor pieces). Maria and her team were very helpful the day of the wedding but the most value was that Maria was there to keep me calm and collected - my wedding process was very stressful and full of drama and Maria was there pushing me when I needed it most. She was my cheerleader and right-hand woman. Thank you, Maria!
