I'm so glad you stopped by...I'm Mary, owner and principal planner for Bringing it Together Events. I have been planning weddings for over nine years. We have been privileged to have several of our weddings published in The Knot, MetBride, 417 Bride and of course some of the blogs. This past year I became a Certified Wedding Planner through the Bridal Society. I chose the Bridal Society because of their commitment to not only education but community, I now have a wealth of knowledge at my fingertips.
Perfecting logistics is my passion... I just love putting all the pieces together then watching it all come together on the big day.
Over 180 weddings later, Bringing it Together is thriving. I have made many lasting relationships with my couples and their families; I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We are blessed to be a part of your story.

"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!
Besides saying “I do,” choosing Mary and her team at Bringing it Together was the absolute best decision we made while planning our wedding! My then-fiance and I had dreamed of a wedding day where we could simply show up, able to fully immerse ourselves in cherishing every moment of our happiest day. That was absolutely what we received, and our day was even more special because of that. Whether you are in search of minimal assistance planning or complete planning, Bringing it Together is your answer. These ladies are unrivaled in their impeccable organizational, design, and communication skills. Never once did I have to worry about how or if something would be addressed because I knew every step would be completed with perfection. I knew the very first minute I met Mary that I would love working with her, and I absolutely did. While she was technically our wedding planner, she also became a friend, like that favorite aunt that every girl secretly adores the most! I so dearly enjoyed our every visit, which in turn allowed me to enjoy the wedding planning process in a way I had never before thought possible. My now-husband and I are full of gratitude for the amazing work that Mary and her team did for us. We are ever so thankful and we highly recommend 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.
