My daughter was married this past weekend.  We had the privilege of working with Brides on Hartz (Marissa).  I cannot thank her enough for her gift of event planning!  Marissa is the consummate professional.  She was very organized throughout the entire planning process.  She checked in with us, gave us timelines, was always available to calmly answer our questions!  The day of the wedding may have been one of the best days of my life!  Marissa quietly ran the wedding without a moment of concern on my part! She was there from beginning to end.  If there was an issue I never knew it, and as the mother of the bride that is the best gift ever!  I cannot recommend Marissa enough! Anyone would be lucky to have her as their planner!  Plus her new store Brides on Hartz in Danville is beautiful!

Marissa did an amazing job helping us with the wedding--from the decoration to the last minute emergencies. She thought of things that we did even consider and made sure everything was perfect!!! We are so glad we hired her. Her calm demeanor and reassurance saved the day for sure!!!

We loved working with Marissa, she is responsive, polite, very easy to work with and thorough. She was an important asset to our special day, everything ran very smoothly despite the very warm weather.

We highly recommend Brides on Hartz for any event!

I could not have imagined a better wedding day and it was in large part due to all the hard work Marissa put in. I had a few items figured out and thought I would be able to plan the entire wedding on my own, thank goodness Marissa was recommended by a friend! I was unsure on the "theme" direction I wanted to go and Marissa was able to quickly determine my actual wants and make them come to life. She had great suggestions on vendors and handled the details with all of them. She also did all of my flower arrangements, including the bouquets and boutonnieres, which were beautiful. My rehearsal and wedding day were absolutely perfect. I didn't once think about any detail or item I may had forgotten because Marissa had everything so put together and organized that I never felt the need to worry. I would refer her to any one of my family members or closest friends at any time! If stress free wedding planning is what you are looking for, Marissa is your lady!

Marissa planned my entire wedding in May of 2015. From wedding invitations, to center pieces, to the our planning meetings, Marissa always came prepared as well as ready to take on the next "idea" I had. She kept me clam, relaxed and truthfully I enjoyed the whole process and I owe that to her. Marissa's work ethic far exceeded my expectations for an event planner. With her commitment and organization she nailed every detail for my wedding. Lastly, my venue had a few problems the day before and day of my wedding, but I never knew about them, or was troubled/stressed by them for Marissa took on the challenges and had them solved even before I knew what happened. I have recommended Marissa to several of my friends and family members for she really puts the JOY in the event you're planning.
