I used their services for my wedding

Brianne is amazing! She was referred to me by my cousin, who is in the wedding industry - so I knew I would be in good hands. Marquette Avenue Events went above and beyond and exceeded all of my expectations!  I was so relieved to have Brianne and her team help my husband and I create and plan the wedding of our dreams!!! Looking back, there is truly not one thing that went wrong (or that I know about) because every step of the wedding process was handled so professionally. At the beginning of the process, I explained to Brianne that I did not have a clear vision and I was not the common bride who had Pinterest boards/clear ideas of what they wanted in their wedding. When I look back at videos and pictures, I am in awe with how well Brianne helped me follow a vision I never knew a had, from the smallest to the largest details. Brianne has impeccable taste and I fully trusted her with her amazing ideas. When I was stuck between two choices of something, she always knew what would work best for our special day and she was right. My husband and I are so pleased with Marquette Avenue Events and I am so glad that I was referred to her! If you are in the process of looking for a wedding planner, look no further- you are absolutely in the right place :)

I used their services for my wedding

Brianne and MAE worked with us to plan our winter 2019 destination wedding in Cancun. Brianne came highly recommended from a close friend. The wedding was a three-day extravaganza packed with events that blended Indian and Latin cultures. My wife and I wanted to share unique elements with our guests at all of our events including live musicians, bands, Mexican and Indian caterers, photo/video, DJs, venues, fireworks and even a silent disco afterparty. With the help of the Brianne and Diana, we were able to secure a long list of amazing vendors in the Cancun area and bring our vision of a destination wedding to life. Both Brianne and Diana accompanied us on visits to Cancun to help select our wedding hotel, meet with vendors and make sure all logistics were ready to go. We appreciate their months of hard work and dedication and the countless phone calls, video conferences, emails, and in-person meetings along the way! Our wedding was an unforgettable experience and our guests are still raving months later. Thank you MAE!

Hiring Brianne and her team was the absolute best and easiest decision my husband and I made while planning our wedding. The whole process was incredibly stress-free and at the end of the day, our wedding was everything we could have dreamed of and more. So many of our wedding guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended- and that was all because of MAE! From the moment we met Brianne her professionalism, optimism and love for wedding planning was contagious. MAE was so involved in the entire process (coordinating calls or site visits with vendors, menu tastings, etc.) ,was on top of every detail from the florals, linens, lighting, etc. and created the most extensive timeline to ensure the whole day ran smoothly. We were so lucky to have Brianne and team help us plan our special day, and we wish we could do it all over again. MAE is the best in the business!
