“Perhaps I should call her a sanity saver. Mary Beth became my wedding planner approximately 8 weeks prior to the actual wedding. MB got right to work without flinching or judging. She made me feel like everything would be fine. In no time (literally), we had secured a caterer, flowers, decorations, the wedding cake, gifts for the guests, music, etc. Thanks to Mary Beth, we had a beautiful wedding, and I could actually enjoy myself the day of the event knowing that everything was in good hands. She completely exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond to make our day a success.” – Neeni

And she saved our wedding when our caterer dropped out by finding someone absolutely incredible at the last minute. I was able to spend my wedding weekend ENJOYING because I knew she would execute everything perfectly. I cannot recommend the HVC staff enough.” Contact them for a free no-obligation consultation.
