"Bringing it Together Events is the premier pick for wedding planning/coordination! Whether you prefer a full-time planner or someone for day-of coordination, Bringing it Together is the place to go. Mary, the owner, is such a joy to work with! The love she has for her work is evident every time you meet with her. As I did most of my wedding planning from afar, Mary was our lifesaver. She had the greatest vendor recommendations, advice, and support to insure that the planning process was both smooth and fun! She always had an open line of communication and was willing to help in whatever way possible. She coordinated our wedding day perfectly and made sure that it was exactly what we wanted. Our wedding party and guests were impressed with how organized and timely our day was, allowing our families and friends to simply enjoy! I truly loved the wedding planning process and I believe it was because of Mary's guidance! I give Bringing it Together Events my highest recommendation and I'm so thankful they were a part of our big day!"
Bringing it Together Events is the Rolls Royce of wedding planning! I truly could have not done this without Mary and her dream team! From day one, Mary made me feel like I was talking to a best friend. Everything I explained to her that I envisioned for my wedding she made come to life. Along the way she knew exactly what to say to help relieve stress and make wedding planning an enjoyable experience. I can honestly say that there was never a time that I felt overwhelmed, and that was because of her! Mary brings so much expertise to the table that she was able to plan my wedding without leaving a single detail out. Mary and I spent countless hours on the phone, since I lived out of state. Anytime of day that I would call she would answer. I would ask her question after question, and still she helped me remain calm and she would listen. My wedding day was literally the best day of my life thanks to Mary. I could keep going on and on, you’ll just have to trust me! Bringing it Together Events will bring your wedding to life in exact detail! Mary you are amazing and I can’t thank you enough for helping our wedding dreams come true!!!!! I highly recommend Mary!!!!
Mary was great! She made me feel like I was her own daughter, and that my wedding was her priority. My wedding was a destination, and she made things as easy as possible for me working full time, and planning a wedding hours away. We are so grateful for Bringing It Together for their expertise in the wedding biz, as well as, making our day the best, and one full of wonderful memories! You won't regret having them by your side through your wedding planning and big day!
Mary and her team make Wedding day the most wonderful and effortless experience. No need to worry or think, she’ll do it for you. She took every single detail of my vision and made it come to life. She worked with vendors from Dallas to Chicago to Nashville to make our wedding day happen! There is no task to much for her. She is patient and understanding but also encourages you to make decisions that are in your best interests. The vendors love working with her. She is so easy to spend those countless planning hours with. She is organized with timelines and to do lists that help you keep it all together. Best money we spent!
You won’t regret using Bringing it Together!
Mary and the entire team at Bringing It Together Events created and facilitated the wedding of our dreams! What we wanted, more than anything, was for our family and guests to feel loved and cherished the entire weekend, and Mary made that happen ten times over. It was the perfect day – filled with love and joy, and not a drop of worry or stress – all thanks to Mary and her team. Planning everything remotely – and with critical members of the wedding party in three different places - I was worried about making everyone’s voice heard. Mary was able to blend all of our ideas into a cohesive and gorgeous vision, and managed the entire thing with warmth, efficiency, and patience (lots of patience!). I had no idea how many moving parts there were going to be in putting together our ideal day, but Mary and her team managed everything from the florists, to the photographers, musicians, and a dozen other vendors, from the day we booked them to the big day itself. Just about the time that I would start to feel worried or nervous about something, I would get a call from Mary updating me on exactly what was happening, and next steps for each detail. Throughout the entire process, my mother, mother-in-law, and I constantly commented on how blessed we were to have someone like Mary to rely upon.
Mary is the owner and principal planner at Bringing it Together Events. After years of starting and planning events for her kids and friends, she was approached by her best friend in 2008 to plan her daughters wedding and, as cliche as it sounds, the rest is history. Bringing It Together has been growing and expanding for the last 12 years and has had the privilege to work with over 200 couples.
"I think one of my favorite times on the Big Day is after dinner has been served and the formalities are done, I love to finally sit back and watch as our couple and their families get to relax and enjoy their guests.
It is so rewarding to see everyone enjoy those moments after all the months spent planning."
When not working on weddings, Mary loves having wine night with her friends, spending time with her family, their 4 dogs and with her 2 amazing granddaughters that are hopefully running around somewhere on their 27 acres.
Julia is the lead associate planner at Bringing It Together Events. She brings a unique perspective to our team through her years of corporate hospitality & wedding experience for top companies like Walt Disney World Parks & Resorts, John Q. Hammons Hotels and Big Cedar Lodge & Top of the Rock owned by Bass Pro Shops. From working on teams that have facilitated private events for thousands of guests to organizing even the smallest elopement for two, Julia's thoughtful, positive and can-do approach shines through with every event she is a part of.
After 8 years of working with top wedding pro's from all over the country and gaining invaluable experience, she wanted to dive deeper into weddings and be involved with every aspect of the wedding planning process. In 2019, Julia joined our team for the second time...
Fun fact: her college internship was with Mary way back in the day!
When she isn't working on weddings, you will find her dreaming up her latest food creation, snuggling with her sweet black cat, Willie or getting out and
enjoying the sunshine on Tablerock Lake.
Merry is our amazing day-of assistant. When she isn't working a wedding with us, she is the Creative Director for a video production company. She brings an invaluable eye for detail, and professionalism with guests. You can usually find her standing along side our bride as she waits to walk down the aisle.
