  • Mary Bell is so awesome, and we really enjoyed working with her throughout the wedding planning process!! She was extremely responsive, flexible, super helpful and patient with us, as we had to downsize and move our wedding to a private residence just a few months before our wedding date due to the virus. She answered all of our (many, many) questions and has so much valuable insight to offer. She was extremely professional throughout the wedding weekend, dealt with multiple strong personalities very capably, and kept the whole process entirely stress-free for me. She thinks of every detail and really helped make my vision a reality! Thank you Mary Bell, you are the best!!!

  • As we know, weddings are one of the most important events in one’s lifetime. Accordingly, a wedding planner is the most crucial decision to be made, since this is the person who can make the event the best day of your life. It is for this reason that I am taking time to describe and recommend the services of Mary Bell Events in general and of the master wedding planner, Mary Bell. Simply put, you can find no better wedding planner than Mary Bell. She is exceptional! The process of my daughter’s wedding was actually an enjoyable process, unlike the nightmares experienced by friends and family members. Why should you select Mary Bell as your wedding planner? Mary has all the right qualifications: in-depth experience and knowledge of venues and vendors, creative ideas to make the event memorable and exceptional, the keen understanding and communication skills to match the bride and groom with the perfect vendors, and the ability to respect budgetary limits for the event.

  • Mary is hands down the best wedding planner I could have ever asked for. She is organized, responsive, decisive and overall just a beautiful and amazing person. She will pull your wedding off without you feeling any of the stress because she has thought of it all and manages it with ease. After one phone call with Mary, I knew she was the planner for me. We chose her prior to COVID-19 and a month before the wedding we had been planning for a year an a half.. we had to halt and cancel it all. Mary was truly the most optimistic emails I would receive letting me know our day would come and when it did it would be perfect. Well she was right, we eloped in July with our immediate family and kept all the things that meant the most to us. It could not have gone better. Mary we LOVE you and you will always hold a special place in my heart for making our wedding day everything that it was in such an emotional and challenging time.

  • Mary Bell Events is the wedding planning team you've been searching for! I hired Mary 4 months prior to my wedding date. I had secured all of my vendors, but needed help with the final details. This is where Mary and team stepped in. She is incredibly talented, organized, and kind. I would have missed so many important details if it wasn't for Mary's expertise and guidance. I highly recommend Mary Bell Events. They will bring your wedding vision to life!

  • Mary Bell was our saving Grace when we had to cancel our wedding out of the country three months before we said “I do”! Once we decided on a location and venue, we didn’t know where to begin with finding vendors and making decisions. Mary Bell Events was highly recommended and thankfully, she and her staff were available for our big day. Mary Bell made the normally eighteen month process easy and stress free even though we only had three short months. She guided us at every step along the way. Mary was very professional, fun, supportive and honest. Everything a bride and groom need to navigate the wedding planning process. She and her team were very sweet and responsive to all our questions. Our event was spectacular! We were both so pleased with how everything turned out and we know that it was due in large part to Mary Bell Events. She and her team made it as easy as could be and the results were exactly, if not better, than we expected. And better yet, our guests were... Read more

  • Mary Bell was a blessing to us! We had the task of postponing and re-planning our wedding due to COVID and Mary Bell offered an immense amount of support. She is active and available throughout the entire process. Her expertise during the day of the wedding was everything we could've hoped for. She really made our day and entire experience special. Thank you Mary Bell Events!

  • 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!

  • Mary Bell and her entire staff were the BEST! There is so much to say! Planning a wedding during a pandemic has been difficult for some but I felt like Mary and her staff took care of everything for us. We had to reschedule the wedding reception three times and her team made it seamless for us. She contacted all the vendors and made sure the new date worked for everyone. Once at the wedding, her team of Kim and Brittany were fantastic. They were floating around all night making sure that everything was in place and ready to go. We were always on schedule because they are so well organized and made the evening so effortless for us as the couple. If you are in need of a planner, this the right choice. We can't thank them enough for helping us for the past 2 years as we planned this wedding.

  • 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

  • Once we were engaged, we were told by friends and family that there were few decisions as important as choosing the right wedding planner if we wanted our dream wedding to become reality. When we began looking for a wedding planner, we not only looked at their accolades in the professional world but also at what they shared about themselves, because having a connection was of the upmost importance to me. Mary Bell genuinely cared about my husband and I and went over and beyond to help create our dream wedding in the middle of a PANDEMIC! I had heard of and seen many brides who had become overwhelmed with the planning process and were not be able to savor every moment of their wedding day. Because we chose to work with such an experienced and attentive wedding planner in Mary Bell, we shared nothing but joy with each other and all of our guests. We were so impressed with the professionalism and sense of security she provided us throughout this entire process. I, just like many ladies... Read more

  • I could not be more satisfied with how my daughters wedding turned out! It was a destination wedding for both the bride and groom, so we completely trusted Mary Bell to help with all decisions, both big and small. Her expertise is unsurpassed and her professionalism is top notched! She helped us choose the absolute best vendors that are truly gifted in their fields. I believe her knowledge in the wedding industry and her relationships with the vendors, truly made my daughters day a dream come true! Mary Bell actually planned two weddings for my daughter, since the original date was moved only 1 month out due to Covid. When we made the decision to change the date, Mary went to work securing the date with our vendors, and only one vendor was already booked, therefore, we only lost one deposit. Talk about relieved! I was so glad i hadn’t tried doing her job myself. There’s truly no telling how much money she saved us just in the days reschedule ... Read more

  • Mary and her team were a pleasure to work with. As a self proclaimed over-planner, I was pleased and appreciated all of the attention to detail and the advice along the way. Our day went off without a hitch thanks to our day of coordinator, Katie. Mary helped us envision and create the wedding of our dreams, and Katie and Kim executed the day perfectly. I would highly recommend choosing Mary and her team as your wedding planner.

  • Planning a destination wedding is in and of itself difficult, but add a global pandemic, graduating from a residency program, and moving across country, and its dang near impossible. This is where Mary Bell Events came in. With everything on my plate, I needed someone local to help nail down vendors, make sure planning was staying on track, and help execute the big day flawlessly. Mary Bell Events certainly delivered! I was absolutely THRILLED with every single vendor and in order to comply with guidelines, we changed our 150 person wedding to an intimate family only event with relative ease, all things considered. Mary and her team were knowledgeable, prompt, and always professional. My day didn’t end up exactly as I had originally planned or envisioned, but looking back, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Wedding planning stressed me out, and hiring Mary Bell Events was absolutely the best decision I made. I would 100% recommend her services to anyone!
