  • Mary was a great help in planning and coordinating our wedding! We did not use her for the entire planning process, but when we had a problem with our caterer, she stepped in and took care of business. During planning she was attentive, but gave us our own space. On the day of, she brought an assistant. Both Mary and her assistant, Shannon, were amazing! Somehow, when we needed them they would almost magically appear, but they disappeared when we didn't need them. I would hire Mary again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone who is planning a wedding.

  • I used Mary as a day-of coordinator for my Labor Day weekend wedding and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. Our wedding ceremony was in a church in a small town before guests walked over to the reception venue. While not a ton of people, there were a lot of logistics getting various vendors to the church versus the venue, moving flowers and decor items between the spaces, and generally keeping the day on track. Mary and her team were invaluable. From our first meeting, Mary exuded a sense of calm and was so helpful in tracking all of the myriad details and things that still needed to be resolved. She was always easy to reach when needed. The weekend of the wedding Mary came to the rehearsal and then was on site early the next morning to keep the day running. She took so much pressure off my mom and me (particularly my mom!) knowing that someone else was thinking of all the details. We had a wonderful experience with Mary!

  • Mary is so chill and very well organized. She swept into our lives and brought such a great vibe and yet got so much done. She communicates well and often, a real draw for a planner. The day of our wedding Mary kept everything moving steadily. She also made sure we had everything we needed. A+ for her and her services!

    Thank you Sanden!

  • Mary Harris, is one of a kind! If I could sum her up in just a couple of words, it would be cool, calm, and collected - all around! When my husband and I first got engaged, I knew immediately Mary was the perfect fit! We were living outside of Boston at the time, and were to be married at my parent's house in NJ. Mary was communicative, organized, and professional every step of the way! With planing a wedding from out of state, it can cause additional challenges, but Mary and her team were always there to problem solve and lend a helping hand. As anxious as a bride can be (and I was definitely anxious at times), I felt at ease working with Mary every step of the way - from our initial meeting, tastings, vendor coordination, and on our wedding day - her attention to detail, impeccable style and taste are just a few of her greatest qualities. Mary and her staff helped us achieve the wedding of our dreams, and I could not be more grateful for their hard work and thoughtfulness. Y... Read more

  • We first heard about Mary through stellar recommendations from the catering manager at our wedding venue. After Skyping together as a first meeting, my then fiancé and I quickly agreed that we felt comfortable and excited to move forward with Mary to coordinate our wedding day. From the first meeting forward, Mary was always prompt and professional via phone and email. Although we had officially hired Mary Harris Events for “day of services”, Mary helped us with so many recommendations and details that it never felt that we were without guidance throughout the process. She even helped us to put out a couple of fires and to quell some anxieties that inevitably arose along the way. A couple of weeks after we’d been married and could catch our breath, we both were able to say that hiring Mary was one of the best decisions we’d made. Even a few months out from our event, Mary has still been in touch just to say hi and see how we are. We can’t speak highly enough about wor... Read more

  • I used Mary Harris Events to help plan by 160 person wedding in June 2015 in Princeton. She and her colleagues did a fantastic job! She was very organized, kept me on task, and helped make planning a fun, not stressful process. The weekend of the wedding itself went very smoothly. I was able to focus entirely on enjoying the events without worrying about anything. I recommend her 100%!

  • Hiring Mary as the day-of-coordinator for my daughter's wedding was the best decision we ever made. I can't imagine what the day would have been like without her. She was calm and organized and we all were able to enjoy the day because we knew Mary had every detail under control. I can't thank Mary enough for helping make my daughter's wedding day perfect!

  • Mary is honestly incredible! We hired her as our day-of-coordinator but it felt like she was so much more. From the moment we first talked to the big day she was there for anything we needed. She was extremely organized, knowledgeable and helpful. There were a lot of pieces that needed to come together to make the day perfect and she coordinated them all seamlessly. We were able to just enjoy our wedding and not worry about a thing. We knew we were in good hands and we would not have wanted anyone else to take the lead on such special day.

  • Mary is just wonderful. My mom and I found her a month or so before the wedding, after we realized how much needs to be done that day. Mary started relieving our worries right away by resolving a communication gap with a vendor. She had experience with several of our vendors, which was really helpful. Mary was available to us when we needed her, and offered great advice that we never would have thought of. My mom and I both felt - and said, on several occasions - that she was just a lifesaver. And the wedding itself went so smoothly - it was really wonderful to be in the moment that day, and not worry about the millions of details Mary was carefully orchestrating in the meantime, or had already orchestrated leading up to the day. Mary's assistant was amazing too. My husband and I ate the food and drank the beer we had so carefully selected for our special day, and it was all thanks to Mary and her assistant. Mary is a polished professional, and a really pleasant person to be around. I ... Read more

  • Mary Harris coordinated my daughter’s recent wedding. My daughter lives in western Pennsylvania, six and a half hours away from her home in northern New Jersey, where she decided to have her wedding. While I was excited about her choice, I realized that it created many challenges. Hiring Mary was the best decision we made. With her assistance we were able to meet the challenges of planning a long distance wedding. Mary was extremely helpful with every detail necessary to create the wedding of my daughter’s dreams. It was wonderful to enjoy the day knowing every detail was taken care of. I thank Mary for creating a memorable wedding day for my daughter.

  • Mary Harris came highly recommended to us from one of our friend's weddings. When we met Mary we instantly knew that she would be an amazing planner and actually didn't even meet with anyone else since we were so confident in her. My husband and I were planning a wedding in my hometown in northern New Jersey. Both of us work in Western PA and have very busy schedules. Mary seamlessly made sure that all of the wedding details were taken care of even though we were at a distance and was very flexible about emailing and calling us within our limited hours. She helped us pick a wonderful photographer, DJ, make up artist and hairstylist when mine cancelled at the last minute. As the wedding day got closer I was so thankful to have Mary taking care of all of the last minute details. Mary and her team were extraordinary and by far exceeded our expectations on the wedding day. I was completely relaxed and was able to enjoy my wedding day since I was confident that Mary was taking care of ev... Read more

  • Mary was a complete joy to work with. We were planning our wedding from out of town so a planner was a must. She met with us from very early on and was highly willing to work within our budget. Our lives are somewhat hectic with our work so we really needed her help to keep us on track. In hindsight, I'm amazed at how little stress we had with planning the wedding all because of her providing us with the right amount of decisions at the right time. Her suggestions for vendors were spot on, and we could not have had a more perfect set of people to work with for our wedding. We are both grateful to have had Mary as our planner. I could not possibly imagine a better person to have helped us plan our wedding day. She traveled quite far to meet with us at our reception site on several occasions. Her wedding day coordination services were equally impressive. She coordinated from behind the scenes but was always available when someone had a question, and even though it rained on our weddin...

  • We started planning not very early on because we had a short engagement and decided to get married in about three months. We were in a panic mode and started reaching out to wedding planners through theknot and weddingwire. Mary was the first one that responded to our inquiry and from there we decided to take her as our planner. I'd say we made the best decision that we talked with Mary. We were a bit concerned about the budget at the beginning and Mary was able to work out a proposed plan that both of us felt comfortable with. Along with the proposal, she also gave us a clear time line of the preparation stage so that the both of us could see how it could be done and done well. Mary is always on time with everything in terms of communications, meetings and emails. Most of our communication was done through emails since we were living quite far away from Princeton, but she would go out of her way to touch base with us. Mary contacted many venues on our behalf and all we needed t... Read more

  • My husband and I both have very busy schedule. As the bride, I wanted to plan as much as I could, but as a student in a demanding professional school, I really did not have the time or energy to plan my wedding. We envisioned a perfect day but did not even know where to start. Since the both of us are the only child in our families, our families had not planned any weddings before. In addition, we haven't been to many weddings to know exactly what we wanted. We had a 3-month engagement, and our schedule wasn't flexible in terms of wedding dates. We tried to contact many planners, but Mary was the only one who promptly responded to us. She has been extremely helpful throughout the planning phase. She is reliable, professional, responsible and always shows up early to meetings. She is also very detail oriented and has very good etiquettes. We had a tight budget, and Mary listened to us and was willing to work around our budget. On the day of the wedding, Mary made sure everything went... Read more

  • We ended up needing a lot of help with our wedding. We were able to do whatever we wanted with our venue but that meant a lot of vendors and a lot coordination. Mary was great during entire process. She knows all of the local vendors and is realistic about what to expect throughout the entire process. One of her greatest strengths is bringing your vision to life. I knew I could trust her taste and was comfortable and confident going into our wedding weekend.
