We hope you will trust us with one of the most important days of your life. Pure Event Planning & Design takes pride in their work, but we don't expect you just to take us at our word. Here are some love notes from past clients!

Mary is the best!! She truly made my wedding amazing from help planning a year in advance to the day of! It was so nice to be able to tell people to find Mary if any issues came up and feel 100% comfortable that she would take care of it! She was like a mind reader everything I asked her she smiled and said already done 😊 Our family and guests couldn’t stop commenting on her professionalism but yet friendly ways! I would hire her a million times again and recommend her to everyone! ❤️

Maria Bride - September 2016

Mary Carlson is simply THE BEST. Her services were gifted to my husband and I as a wedding gift from an amazingly good friend and she saved our wedding. She took as much planning stress off of me as she possibly could. She did everything from driving two hours to meet with me to helping create our place cards, calling every DJ she could think of to help us find a new one when ours quit on us two days before our wedding, she kept the entire wedding party on task while still having fun (which with those yahoos was a feat in and of itself). I could go on and on about everything and all the good she has done. I would recommend her to ANYONE.

Haley Bride - August 2016

I would never never plan or have a wedding without Mary at my side! She was my lifesaver! I am not into all the details and the stress of wedding planning, I just wanted to be a bride and a wife. Mary let me do JUST THAT! She handled everything! She was simply amazing. I cannot stress how valuable she was to our whole process from beginning to end. My husband and I still talk about how we can’d imagine how people get married without Mary.

Kristen Bride - August 2016

Mary is so amazing to work with. From the very first day we met, I knew that she was invested in making sure our day was absolutely perfect – and it was! I can truly say that I put all my confidence in Mary and didn’t even think twice on the big day. She is professional, organized, sweet and will make you feel like her only client. Mary definitely has my highest recommendation.

Marie Bride - July 2016

Mary was absolutely incredible on my wedding day. She handled every single detail of our day, so that I could truly enjoy myself. Everything from creating our timeline, to running the rehearsal, to helping with decor planning, to moving flowers, to coordinating the grand March, Mary did it all. I was skeptical about the importance of a day-of-coordinator at first, and now I will recommend Mary to any bride that I see! She is the best of the best!

Lauren Bride - July 2016

We loved everything about working with Mary! She made our wedding day so stress free so we could enjoy the little things. Our wedding would not have been the same without her! I would recommend Mary for not only weddings but any sort of event. She’s very detailed and organized, has fantastic ideas, and will do anything to help you get what you want. We already miss working with her!

Jen Bride - May 2016

Mary, you’re a maestro! Your organization and close eye to every detail made the night care free for us, and allowed the night to flow so (seemingly) effortlessly…even when it came to falling tree branches and talking me out of MY tree. 🙂

We’re so incredibly thankful that we had the good fortune to work with the best – we’re in awe of all of your skills! There’s simply no other way to describe the three of you and your staff. We’re so grateful and humbled that you chose to care so much about our wedding. I’m sure you get letters like this all the time, but I wanted to share with you how we felt about our special day…you made it perfect.

Libby Bride - January 2016

Thank you so, so much for helping make our day so beautiful. I so appreciate everything you have done for us & for making everything so easy and calm!!

Thank you!

Emilie Bride - December 2015

I wanted to let you know how truly, truly amazing Mary was to work with. I have planned a lot of events for past jobs, so have gotten to partner with a lot of people in Mary’s role. She is by far and away the best I’ve seen. Words can’t even describe how amazing and on top of everything she was … including answering our million questions! She made planning a wedding super stress-free, easy and a total blast!

Thank you for opening up your winery for weddings … it was THE perfect venue for us.

Mary is always available to answer questions about anything from vendor recommendations, decor suggestions, and day-of logistics. She really knows her stuff. I really can’t overstate how valuable this is when planning your wedding – you need someone at your venue who cares about your wedding as much as you do, and genuinely wants to help make your day perfect. It makes everything so much less stressful.

Jamie Bride - July 2015

We were lucky enough to photograph Jordyn & Will’s wedding this past weekend and just wanted to reach out to sing your praises! Having been full time photographers in the area for more than six years, we have worked with countless vendors and can truly recognize a high level of customer service when we see it. Your team was outstanding in every element of the wedding and we just wanted to acknowledge them :).

We’d work with Mary again in a heartbeat and her staff was phenomenal. We live out-of-state, so really depended on her to take care of business. Mary had our best interests at heart at all times and made it clear that she wanted our day to be perfect just as much as we did. And it was!
