  • AS the wedding celebrant, aunt of the groom, and veteran of 14 wedding performances, I am impressed with the handling of this destination wedding...with a stressed out couple deeply involved with their careers, we could not have found a better planner!

  • In May of this year our son married his bride at the Diana venue at the Biltmore in Asheville, NC. The couple chose as their wedding planner Mary Bell of Mary Bell Events. The wedding was the most beautiful wedding ourguests have ever seen or will likely to see again! It was elegant, exquisite and gorgeous! Mary created a stunning dream wedding for the bride and groom and it was just what they had hoped it would be. She is a phenomenal wedding planning and we are so grateful to her for making their wedding an event we will always remember. We are still receiving notes and phone calls from our families and friends about the gorgeous wedding and we have Mary Bell to thank for that. The wedding was perfect and I would highly recommend anyone planning their dream wedding to contact Mary Bell of Mary Bell Events, you will always be grateful that you did!

  • Mary Bell went above and beyond to help us throw the wedding of the CENTURY! From the detailed wedding weekend timeline, to ensuring all of the vendors were taken care of, she truly provided an experience that money cannot buy. I have heard of couples becoming overwhelmed and stressed of the wedding planning, and how they could not wait for it to be over. I did not feel a single on of those feelings while working with Mary. She is highly organized, professional, and absolutely delightful to work with. She covered and said all things I had thought of but didn't want to speak up for, and made sure our bridal party was well informed. Thank you so much Mary, you really really really pulled off an amazing wedding, and I am so lucky that it just happened to be mine. xoxoxoxo, Katie Burr

  • Hire Mary Bell. A simple statement with a lot of meaning. As an event planner for my day job, I could not have planned my own wedding without Mary. My boss wants to hire her. She’s THAT good. If you think planning a wedding is stressful, add in a global pandemic. Mary was steadfast, encouraging, empathetic, direct and flexible during the entire planning process – which, you can imagine, constantly changed. Even before COVID took over, we flew in to meet our vendors and got caught up in a bad storm. Mary rearranged all of our appointments within a few hours and we knew then, she was invaluable. Yes, she’s organized and detailed – traits I LOVE – and appreciated while tackling my to-do list. More so, Mary is an awesome person who served as the expert, cheerleader, and friend we needed. And our wedding was perfect! I did not worry about one thing all day. I knew Mary was on top of everything – the setup, the vendors, the timing, all of it. We just floated through the... Read more

  • From day 1 meeting Mary Bell (virtually as we are from Tampa - destination wedding in Asheville) we knew we were in good hands. Mary was responsive from start to finish, and was proactive in helping us see around every corner while planning. The day of coordination was superb and everything went of without a hitch. Would recommend Mary to anyone and everyone!

  • Mary was great from day one! She heard all of our requests and worked with us to find a perfect solution in every area. All of the vendors she recommended delivered as promised which is not easy to do during the Covid era. Mary Bell and her team were incredibly helpful, efficient and professional. Everything went exactly according to plan thanks to her team. Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect! Don't look anywhere else for a wedding planning team! This is as good as it gets!

  • Mary Bell Events truly made our wedding absolutely perfect. We are from Atlanta and knew we wanted to get married in Asheville. I was trying to save a couple dollars and do everything myself but ended up being completely overwhelmed. Our photographer recommended Mary and it was one of the best decisions we made! She made everything seamless and worked with me on everything. I'm a natural procrastinator and she was always on the ball. She kept me in line, gave me very helpful advice and guideance, and was extremely, EXTREMELY efficient. The day of wedding, I had literally zero stress. The day went off with out a hitch. Her timeline was spot on and everything moved so smoothly. I didn't have a single worry! Mary was there through and through! If you want the absolute best and a very detailed oriented/thorough wedding planner, you MUST book Mary. And don't just only just book Mary but book her ENIRE dream team; Derek DiLuzio Wedding Photographer and Blush Asheville Hair and Makeup! Serio... Read more

  • I could not possibly say enough good things about Mary Bell and her staff. She organized and orchestrated the most perfect day for me, my husband, and my friends and family. She is an absolute professional and is a superstar at what she does. Every vendor recommendation she made was on point. She is exquisitely organized. She is well connected and adored among the wedding venue and vendor network. She is two steps ahead of any concern one might have when planning such a major event. She seamlessly executed the most perfect wedding without the slightest stress on my part. We received all sorts of compliments and positive feedback from friends and family regarding how beautiful and seamless our wedding was, and I give all credit to Mary Bell. Choosing her is a decision you will not regret.

  • Mary Bell and assistant Nicole was an outstanding service and very personable yet professional. Her recommendations for all the venders were exceptional. Trust her...she knows what she is doing and will save you money. With all the details and moving parts to go so smooth like it had been planned for years was a tribute to Mary Bell and her staff.

  • I'm shocked at all of the raving reviews for Mary Bell Events, because we did not have a similar experience. We had our wedding last December at the Grove Park Inn and were excited to work with Mary Bell. Since we only had a 5 month engagement, we wanted someone we could count on for help planning and Mary assured me that 5 months was plenty of time, so I felt at ease signing with her. However, she was anything but professional in my opinion. It all started with our first planning call together, which she missed because she wrote down the wrong day. It wasn't a big deal at all, but a couple of other smaller hiccups kept happening during the planning process, that I tried to brush off, but overall wasn't getting good vibes. Then, nine days before the wedding, the GPI told me they didn't know the plan for the wedding because they had not spoken to Mary Bell outside of our food tasting... We were planning to have the ceremony inside the Seely Pavilion, and they had no idea. During o... Read more
