"I wish I could post a video so all can see the smile on my face, the jumping up and down, the hugs and kisses I'm giving to these amazing ladies. Kirsten and Megan made my special weekend more than I ever imagined it could be. Being in the event world as part of my professional career, I was not convinced I needed any help and did not want a "wedding planner" to take over and tell me what needed to be done. I fought this idea for a few weeks...until I met Megan and Kirsten and they made me change my tune :-) I know now that I could never have made it through the planning process without them. They were there to help in whatever capacity I needed/wanted and held my hand through the few months we worked together. This did not allow for much time but they created the perfect day for my husband and I. I was able to let go and trust that everything was in their hands and would be taken care of. They didn't let me down! Added bonus: I found two wonderful friends from this process :-) To my lovely ladies...THANK YOU!" - Jodi & Alon, Harbour Inn - St. Micheals, MD
"We are so happy with our decision to work with Ste. Marie Showers Special Events. While we thought we were pretty well organized, we realized in the weeks leading up to our wedding that we would never have been able to do it without Kirsten and Megan. They are the ultimate professionals yet have a warm and relaxed attitude that makes wedding planning – not always the most relaxing thing! – a fun and enjoyable experience. Everything was effortless and stress-free for us – from helping us select vendors, planning logistics and lay-out for both set-up and execution of our wedding day, developing a last minute rain plan (!), spot treating BBQ sauce on a certain bride’s wedding dress, and so many other details. We are SO grateful to Ste. Marie Showers Special Events for making our wedding day the perfect day that it was!" - Tom & Emily, Tuckahoe Plantation – Richmond, VA
"Kirsten and Megan were the best event planners I could have asked for to plan our engagement party. They both came up with amazing ideas and ways to make things work for the party that I would have not thought of. I was nervous about budget and they immediately put me at ease, suggesting ways that we could manage. I loved that they invited me to a group Pinterest board, so that we could pin our inspirations, ideas, and vendors for the party all in one place. It really helped to keep everything in one place and organized. The girls of Ste. Marie Showers handled all of the communications with the venue where we were hosting the event and sourced all of the vendors for the party. It was such a weight off of my shoulders to not have to worry about emailing, calling, etc all of the time to talk through the little details. Kirsten and Megan knew the vision we wanted for our event and they made it happen! On the day of the event, I arrived feeling no stress at all, to a perfect set up and designed engagement party with all of my family and friends. Everything went absolutely perfectly, and we could not have done it without the girls of Ste. Marie Showers. It was so fabulous working with them and I would recommend their services to anyone!" - Monika & Mike, Four Seasons Hotel - Baltimore, MD
"Kirsten & Megan helped us create the wedding of our dreams, and a memory that we (and our guests) will cherish forever! We were initially anxious to begin planning our Destination wedding, but Ste. Marie Showers guided us through the process and as a result we not only had fun during our wedding, but throughout the planning stages, as well! From negotiating our room block, to assisting us in selecting the perfect floral arrangements, you were with us every step of the way. We can’t thank you enough!" - Margarite & Adam, South Seas Island Resort – Captiva Island, FL
