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.
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
