What do clients have to say about you?

"Working with Merida was amazing! I used to be an event planner and designer and thought I could do it all -- but I quickly realized I needed help. Especially for the day of! Luckily Merida and her team of skilled experts understood and carried out our vision (and then some!) with little direction. Anyone who is a planner, meticulous, Virgo, etc. will appreciate it when I say Events by Merida knows how to listen to, coordinate, execute, and transform your ideas and plans into the day of your dreams. The best part about it? The wedding was three days ago and we are still getting calls from our 80 guests to rave about "the best wedding they've ever been to." Another plus: besides her having amazing recommendations for vendors within our budget (and an endless emergency kit that would put Hermione's charmed bag to shame), we had a multicultural, interfaith wedding so needed someone who not only had experience working with diverse clientele, but also is a true advocate for diversity and inclusion in real life. That was very important to us and our loved ones, and Merida fit the bill." - Olivia

"Merida is amazing! My husband Ben and I got married this past September and everything was just as we hoped it would be. Merida has excellent vendor recommendations and is very organized and responsive. She's also great at managing other humans so that you don't have to worry about it. Merida has an amazing personality and was joy to work with."- Lauren

"Wow! I just had my wedding last weekend with Merida as my planner! It was absolutely beautiful. I am a little controlling and don't like other people doing things for me, but Merida laid down the law, and made me relax and enjoy my day, and it was beautiful and gorgeous. Planning a wedding in the backyard is a lot of work, and I truly feel like I barely did any most of the time which was amazing! All of the decor and vendors Merida helped arrange were amazing, and she certainly kept my very large party of 13 groomsman and bridesmaids in line so I did not have to. I highly recommend Merida for a rather stress free, beautiful, and unique wedding!" - Alecia
