Review Marylee Marmer Events

Marylee and her team were an absolute dream to work with! I recommend her team any chance I get! Hands down one of our best valued vendors. We hired them for the day of services, décor rental, and flowers for our reception and cake. I told Marylee a few ideas I had and her team created an incredible space for our reception. Neither of our families had to run around the day of setting up the reception or having to pack anything up at the end of the night. Marylee, thank you so much allowing us to enjoy every minute of our wedding! - Sarah and Steven
Marylee and Elizabeth are hands down amazing!! We choose to do day-of coordination, and they made sure to keep us on track planning and answer any questions we had and ensured our wedding day was exactly what we wanted. By the time our day arrived, I knew I wouldn't have to worry about a thing! Elizabeth handled everything, and made sure both my husband and I had plenty of food, drink, and that we were having a great time! I cannot recommend Marylee and her team enough, they will not disappoint.
Marylee was great to work with! She was very reliable and was the perfect wedding coordinator. Not only was Marylee our wedding coordinator, but she also did the flowers for our wedding. That made it so much easier when talking to her about decorations/flowers around our venue. We did not have to worry about ANYTHING the day of the wedding as Marylee and her team had it all under control and as the bride that is a great feeling on your wedding day. I cannot thank Marylee and her team enough for making Matt and I's wedding day the best day ever! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fabulous wedding coordinator!
We just celebrated our wedding at the Virginia Cliffe Inn this past Friday and Marylee and her crew were awesome!! From the very beginning of our planning process, Marylee was very responsive to any questions we had and had very timely responses to all our emails. She made sure my husband and I were taken care of for the night and we did not stress one detail knowing Marylee had complete control. Thank you so much helping to make our wedding day totally picture perfect for us!
We LOVED working with Marylee. She was amazing! From the time we first met with her, I knew she was going to be exactly what I wanted. She made sure everything went smoothly and handled any "bumps in the road" that came along perfectly.

"What's a weird/unusual piece of advice I have told my couples?
I have a few I am not sure if these are weird or unusual but they are important.
1) Do not lock your knees when standing at the alter.
2) Remember to eat!
I have noticed these are two things are simple and overlooked. We do NOT want you fainting on your special day. When it’s hot and you are standing during the ceremony, remember to sway side to side slightly, just enough to keep the blood flowing.
Keep a snack handy during the photographs. I always bring my couples each a bottle of water and a selection of their appetizers.
"What's something every couple should know before getting married?"
When you start your family and start having children it is extremely important that you and your partner have a date night every week. If not every week every two weeks. My husband and I go out for dinner or sometimes just dessert every Wednesday it is our time for each other.
"My Go-To Dance Move?"
I need to be completely honest here i am a wallflower, I am not a dancer. I love music and love watching people dance, I just feel awkward when I dance.
"What would I put on my dream sandwich?"
My dream sandwich consists of gouda cheese, caramelized onion, tomato and thyme. Ipanema's combination of these ingredients in their Smoked Gouda Sandwich is yummy and perfect!
"What is on my dream Nachos?"
I am very simple when it comes to my Nachos, as long as they have good hot melted cheese, I park myself next to the bowl until is all gone.
