Elegant Events by Maria

Wedding & Event Planning in Northeast Ohio

Before We Start, Congratulations!

This is such an exciting time in your life & we hope you get to enjoy every moment of it! At Elegant Events by Maria, we believe that you say “yes” and “I do” the rest.

My team and I have been in business for over 18 years and have planned every type of event. From a small elopement in Vail, Colorado, a 400 person barn wedding in the middle of Ohio, or a 3 day South Asian- wedding have truly seen and done it all! We look forward to speaking with you.

Hi, I’m Maria!

I started this company 18 years ago, but have had a passion for event planning for as long as my memory goes back. I remember being thrilled when I helped plan my senior prom back in the 80’s!

That passion for event planning only grew stronger as I got older. When planning my own 700 person Serbian wedding, I planned every last detail. From the hot pink bridesmaids dresses to the napkins on the table, I planned and picked out everything!

I am a teacher by education but always found myself planning events and fundraisers for charities and hospitals so 18 years ago, I opened up Elegant Events by Maria. Since then, I have planned thousands of events.

From 10 person elopements in Vail, CO to 500 person backyard tent weddings, my team and I have seen and done it all. I work with a team of assistants and day of coordinators to help events stay on track.

Our Work Speaks for Itself

​Hiring Maria was the best decision we could have made when planning our wedding day. She absolutely goes above and beyond – you feel like you’re her only client. Not to mention, she made our wedding feel perfect during this pandemic time. The whole day was an absolute dream and I will be recommending her services to everyone and anyone. Having Maria as your planner also gives you access to her amazing team of professional lighting, florists, photographers, linens, etc. 20/10 best planner ever and miss her already! Lol
