  1. Mary Ann,
    We sure enjoyed working with you on our wedding and feel like it could not have turned out better. I know that our sense of how things worked out was 100% a result of your efforts and professionalism.

    Morgan and I liked the islands so much that we are planning on returning late in 2009!

    Our pictures and video turned out great, so give me a few more days, and I’ll send you a couple of pictures.

    Thanks again! We loved it!


  2. Hi MaryAnn

    Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding at the Westin Casuarina, Grand Cayman, such a perfect day in December. The flowers and canopy on the beach were exactly what we hoped for and your suggeston of keeping the canopy for our private dinner at sunset worked our fabulously. We had the most fun you could possibly have on your wedding day. Being just the two of us with no guests we weren’t sure how special it would feel but your attention to detail created a wonderful romantic setting that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

    You made us feel very confident that everything would work out just fine even though we were arranging our special day from afar (Canada).

    Our wedding day turned out way beyond our expectations. Our sincere thanks to you and the staff at Celebrations for all your help.

    Best wishes

    Linda & Robert

  3. Hi Mary Ann!

    Thank you so much for making our wedding at the Grand Cayman Beach Suites so perfect! You completely understood what we envisioned for our intimate beach wedding. The decor and flowers were absolutely stunning, I can’t tell you how many people complimented us on how beautiful everything turned out.

    You made us feel confident that everything would turn out wonderful, even as we planned the wedding from Virginia. Your creativity and attention to detail is remarkable. Thank you for going above and beyond to make April 25, 2009 such a special day, a day that we will cherish forever. We smile when we look at our wedding photos – everything was gorgeous and we had such a fabulous time.

    You are the best wedding planner ever! We are so appreciative and cannot wait to come back to Grand Cayman to visit! :)

    Eric and I would like to thank you for everything!

    The set-up on the beach was breath taking,ALL the flowers were perfect, the bridal bouquet, the sprays on the columns, and the centerpieces on the table(BEAUTIFUL)

    Everything was perfect(even the weather!)

    So thank you for doing such a perfect job and making the trip to the beach on your day off!

    Mr. and Mrs. Morris

  5. Hi Maryann,

    You are the best! Thank you for planning such a beautiful wedding for my daughter. She lives in west coast, I east coast, and we both are busy working and far away from Cayman and you made everything happen! Our family are so lucky to have you as our planner. All of our guests–80 of them, enjoyed the wedding very much and we thank you again!

  6. Hi Mary Ann!
    We just wanted to thank you again for making our wedding day so special. Everything that you did from the flowers, to the DJ to helping us choose the perfect color scheme, made our day terrific!
    Our wedding was one month ago yesterday and our friends and family continue to call us and tell us that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to.

    Thank you so much again!

    Andrea and Anthony Gatto

  7. Hello MaryAnn,

    We had some curve balls with bad weather, but you helped us resolve them all! Thank you for keeping calm and helping us pull together a wedding that topped all our expectations!

    You were easy to get in touch with and you made us feel that we had the extra hands we needed to make our destination wedding work!

    We wish you the best in all your upcoming weddings, and hope that everyone has the same positive experience we did working with such a skilled planner.

    Thank You,

    Alexis & Elliot Learmond

  8. Hello Mary Ann!

    On January 16, 2010 at the Grand Old House you made our wedding day extraordinary! We know it couldn’t have been easy to step in half way through our wedding planning but we are so glad you did. You listened to us explain our style, helped us decide our decor, and worked *so hard* to give us the modern elegance for which we hoped. The result was stunning. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the decor was.

    If you had not been at the wedding to make sure things ran smoothly and stayed on time, it would have been complete chaos.

    We are thrilled with our wedding day and are so grateful for you, Mary Ann, and everyone at Celebrations.

    Thank you Mary Ann!

    Happily ever after,
    Remo and Laura

  9. Hi Mary Ann: Just want to thank you for everything that you and your team did to make our wedding such an amazing event! We had an absolute blast and so did all of our guests! The wedding decor and flowers were sooooo gorgeous and the minister and DJ were great! We appreciate all of your patience and for keeping us well-organized from our first email last year up until the big day! All of your hard work really made the day completely unforgettable and we’re so grateful for all of your help! Thanks again!!

    Krista and Brandon

  10. Hi Mary Ann,

    Jerome and I cannot thank you enough for THE most WONDERFUL wedding we could have ever imagined. You and your team made our day unforgettable! I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful memory.

    Thank you so very much for all that you did to make our wedding perfect. The setting was beautiful and the ceremony was marvelous!


  11. Dear Mary Ann,

    There are not words to describe how profoundly grateful my husband and I are to have worked with you on our wedding this past Tuesday at grand Old House. I have just seen off the last of our guests and am having a chance to sit down and compose some thank you emails. I don’t care how much JoAnne pays you…it’s not enough and I fully intend to tell her just that.

    We have already gotten our photos back from David Wolfe and we were both blown away by his photography. I’m sure you’ve never taken a bad picture, but he snapped some beautiful ones of you as well. I am burning you a DVD copy with our permission to use anything you’d like for your own portfolio or for the benefit of Celebrations.

    I have to say that you more than exceeded our expectations on every level. Your design for our event was abolutely exquisite & more beautiful than I could have imagined. The ceremony and preparation were seamless. Our stress was non-exisitant. We owe all of this to your diligent hard work. Like I said, I do not have the words to describe how impressed we are with you and your work. I appreciate every single thing that you did to make our wedding day memories something we will carry with us for a lifetime. We are so blessed to have met you!

    Very Best Regards and much success in the future!!!,

    Jen and Ben Ogden

  12. Dear Mary Ann,
    We had a perfect wedding day thanks to you!!!
    It was amazing, you are amazing!!
    I look forward to a frienship with you.
    Keep up the good work. :)
    With love always,
    Trish & Grant

  13. Dear Mary Ann

    I just wanted to thank you for an outstanding job!! You helped Megan & Ryan’s wedding be an “over the top” event.
    From the arrangements, flowers & lighting to your wonderful smile, calm demeanor and voice of confidence – NOTHING could have been better.
    When Megan walked into the reception and teared up because she was so overwhelmed by your work, was a highlight moment!

    Reta & Larry Schaap

  14. Mary Ann,

    I am back at work today, and wanted to drop you a line to THANK YOU for such a great event! The wedding was beautiful, and I am so impressed how everyone pulled together to help us when we found out Uli’s family would not make it. You also picked up the pieces and did a great job after not having been involved in the original “vision” and I really appreciate your efforts and your attention to detail. It was a pleasure working with you,

  15. Hi MaryAnn,

    I am soooo happy it’s all over and done with but I must say a special thank you as the place was beautifully done. I was in complete dismay when I saw the place, everything was set right where it needed to be and my centre pieces rocked .I loved it all, my flowers were so lovely I had to put them in my freezer not sure how long they will last in there but I will try to preserve it as long as possible .Once again thank you so much for bringing my dreams to reality .

    Kind Regards

    Kadie Dunn

  16. Dearest Mary Ann,

    David and I were thrilled by our wedding celebration! Thank you for ALL that you did to help us make it be such a special affair for our dear friends and family. We are proud to be your first really rainy wedding couple! Please know how much we appreciated your ability to adapt, and remain so calm and collected as mother nature prevailed. It is clear that you treasure your role in helping couples plan for and celebrate marriage. What you do so naturally comes from your beautiful heart, and we feel blessed to have had the opportunity to experience your magical touch.

    Thanks again for everything,

    Mary and David Herron

  17. MaryAnn

    We have been so busy since our trip to Grand Cayman telling all our freinds and family the story about our spur of the moment Cayman wedding…that we have not even had time to follow up here and thank you for making it actually come to fruition. We can not begin to thank you enough. We came to you on a Monday morning with really no ideas of what we wanted except that we wanted to get married that week, but thanks to you by that Saturday, we were enjoying the dream beach wedding that you pulled together for us. Every vendor you introduced us to was fabulous and dedicated…and the best part is we just had to show up and enjoy our beautiful day because you took care of everything for us.

    Could not be more grateful for your help and it would not have happened without you. You are the best….

    Nick & Francesca Rockwell

  18. Mary Ann,

    We had an amazing wedding day on Grand Cayman. We have you to thank for that. When we started working on our wedding last year I had no idea where the journey would take us. You were so on top of things and organized from start to finish. We were never stressed about the details. Meeting you the day we arrived just put us at ease! The day of our wedding was absolutely PERFECT!! We were laying by the pool and relaxing knowing you would take care of everything. And you did!! I couldn’t have asked for a more fantastic day. It was the best day of my life! In fact, I woke up on Monday saying I want to do yesterday all over again!!

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We were thrilled to work with you. Our photographer had nothing but nice things to say about you as well.

    Jennifer & Ron Ordell

  19. Mary Ann,

    We just want to thank you for creating our beautiful wedding! We could not have asked for a more perfect day! Not only did you make it gorgeous, but you made it so easy. It was such a relief to show up in Cayman the week of the wedding knowing that you had taken care of everything and would make sure everything ran smoothly. Every guest has commented on how beautiful the ceremony and dinner were – we owe that all to your hard work. It was exactly what we had in mind when we decided to have a destintaion wedding.

    You and everyone at Celebrations exceeded all of our expectations. Everyone was helpful, professional, and always accessible. It truly was a dream experience! We can’t begin to thank you enough!

    Abigail & Joe

  20. Mary Ann –

    We can’t thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding ceremony and reception as fantastic, easy and beautiful as it was! Our flowers were amazing and the decor was just as I had hoped it would be! You were so fun to work with and your patience was incredible. Planning from 3,000 miles away is never easy, but you made it happen!

    Every one of our 100 guests commented on how beautiful everything looked and how smoothly everything went. Your vendors were all fantastic and I would recommend you and Celebrations anytime to anyone coming to the Grand Cayman for a wedding or event in general.

    Thank you again for your organization, great attitude and insight. It was a day to remember for always!

    Christy and Charlie Kreisa

  21. Mary Ann,

    Thank you for everything that you did to make our wedding a success! We absolutely LOVED the flowers and decor! The centerpieces were exquisite…all of our guests are still talking about how beautiful and vibrant the flowers in centerpieces were. We were so impressed by how smoothly the whole event went. From the prompt pick-up of all 80 guests to the smooth flow of the ceremony and reception. We are so happy with the way everything turned out. Also, the vendors that you recommended to handle our photography, videography, music, etc. were all phenomenal! The wedding was everything that we could’ve asked for and that much more! Thank you again for all of your help in making it one of the best days of our life.

    Best regards,
    Latoya & William

  22. Hi Mary Ann,

    Bill and I (and our families) would like to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding so wonderful. We had so much fun, and it was a perfect day. Thank you for all your advice, patience, hard work, and vision. And for answering my millions of emails and revising the plan so many times. And, of course, thank you so much for getting us the most beautiful cake. Everything looked great and ran smoothly – and that allowed us to focus on each other and the amazing day instead of the details.

    Our day would not have been possible without you and Celebrations, and we are so grateful we found you.

    Anne and Bill

  23. Hi Mary Ann,

    On behalf of Michael and I, I just wanted to say thank you! Our wedding day was beautiful. You were professional and courteous throughout the process. Although the time-line was decreased by an hour, I still feel everything was handled smoothly under the circumstances. Again, thank you so much for your services. We greatly appreciated you helping to give us a great experience on our special day!

  24. Mary Ann was awesome!! She did a fantastic job at our May Wedding at the Westin! It was just beautiful! I received so many compliments on how great our wedding was and the majority of that had to do with Mary Ann. She was so easy to work with, always responded quickly and had great ideas. Doing a destination wedding can sometimes be tricky since you cannot be there to pick things out but I knew everything would be perfect because it was in Mary Ann’s hands. Our wedding was amazing because of her! Thanks so much Mary Ann!

  25. Mary Ann –

    We don’t have the words to express our thank you for all your work to create a fairy tale wedding on Seven Mile Beach! Everything was perfect from blue water, blue skies, white sand,great location, great friends and family, a great band (Bona Fide), great food (LUCA), great photography (Picture This with Aaron), gorgeous flowers and cake, and the reception area…WOW!… dancing under the stars! You are a natural at planning such events and a loving and caring person. Thank you for your kindness and patience, your professionalism and expertise. We have made a new friend and plan to return again soon. Our friends and family are still talking about this event!

  26. Mary Ann,

    Thank you so much for all of your beautiful work for our wedding. I felt like I had a good picture in my mind of what the decor was going to look like, but I was completely blown away. It was so much more beautiful than I even imagined. We had such a lovely evening and we received so many compliments…or should I say you did. :) Thank you so so much, you made our day just perfect!

    Jami & John Briggs

  27. Mary Ann did an amazing job with our wedding at the Ritz, as well as, with ALL the activities she helped me organize for our family and friends for the 5 days they were all there with us! She helped put together several excursions, restaurant reservations, transportation needs, meetings with the hair/makeup folks, the photographer… the list just goes on and on. And I couldn’t have had such a perfect wedding without her help. Everything was just amazing and more beautiful than I ever imagined it would be!! All of our guests are still telling us that it was the best wedding they had ever attended and that couldn’t have been accomplished without her help. I will definitely keep her contact info in hopes to visit her again during our future trips to the island. Such a sweet and caring person… thanks again Mary Ann!

  28. Mary Ann – Thank you so much for helping make our day so wonderful and special. It was truly the best day ever and the best wedding ever. All of our guests were blown away and we are still hearing people talk about what a wonderful experience it was and how they want to move down there to stay! The day exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t have imagined it being any better than it was. We appreciate all your hard work to make it so memorable.

  29. Mary Ann,

    Thank you so much for helping to put together our wonderful island wedding. Both my wife and I agree that you were extremely courteous, friendly, professional, and creative during our entire planning process. The end result you provided made us very happy.

    Thanks again

    Chad and Vanessa

  30. Mary Ann did such a wonderful job with our wedding. We had never been to the island before so having a planner was a must. We were told Celebrations was the best on the island and they did not disappoint. Like any wedding there were bumps on the road, but Mary Ann was always quick to find a solution and take the stress off of us. When all was said and done our wedding could not have been better and we would recommend Mary Ann to anyone thinking of planning a wedding in Grand Cayman!

    Thank you Mary Ann!

  31. Mary Ann and the whole celebrations team,

    Thank you for making our day so perfect! It was truly everything we could have asked for and more. Mary Ann we truly could not have gotten through the planning process without you. You really kept Darren and I on top of everything despite our CRAZY work schedules. I think the best part about working with you is that you were honest with me throughout all the planning regarding the choices I made. You told me when I should splurge and when I should hold back, and you always helped me to make the right decision! I recomment you to anyone who wants to plan a wedding in the Cayman Islands! Everyone told me you were the best….and you are!

    Thank you for everything!

  32. Mary Ann went above and beyond to give us the wedding of our dreams. She took our “New York Yankee meets glamorous lounge” concept to new heights by delivering an exceptional cocktail/reception space for our family and friends to celebrate. On top of everything, she double-side taped me into my wedding dress when a last minute wardrobe malfunction ensued. Thanks Mary Ann, for making our special day one that we will always cherish. You have made another bride and groom extremely happy and for that we will always remember you!”

    Shilah and Jeff

  33. Dear Mary Ann

    Thank you SOO much for helping make sure our day was stress-free and beautifully done. We really could not have done it without you and your team at Celebrations!

    You really made planning a destination wedding easy – especially for this Type A personality bride. :) A lot of my friends were really shocked at how at ease and stress-free I was in the days leading up to and on the wedding day. I told them that it was because I had you – knowing that you were on top of everything and being able to rely on you 100% allowed me to really enjoy the experience and spend time with our guests.

    From the beginning, you were so quick to respond to our many emails and helped out with anything and everything. Whenever I started to stress about things, all it would take is a quick email or chat with you to put me at ease.

    Thank you also for all your advice (just getting certain things done rather than lingering) and suggestions (like on decor). You were really professional and honest. Your vast experience with weddings really helped me plan properly so there were no unexpected surprises. Also knowing the best and most reliable vendors on the island was so helpful for us.

    Thank you also for always being patient with me as I often didn’t know exactly what I wanted and it took a few tries for me to figure things out – particularly with the flowers.

    Thank you also for being so organized. The proposal and the timeline that you put together for us were key – and really helped us feel comfortable that everything was under control.

    Everything really turned out perfectly and Dan and I could not be happier! We’re still getting compliments about how well executed everything was and how beautifully decorated the Caribbean Club beach and Luca was. I really love how you were able to transform everything into something really special for our guests. We had heard from several people on the island that you are the best and I agree with them 100%. Would highly recommend you to anyone planning a wedding on Grand Cayman!

    WIth Love,
    Sophia & Dan

    P.s. We have some pictures of your work up on pinterest. Will add Rebecca’s pictures once they are available.

  34. Mary Ann and Celebrations were absolutely wonderful helping us plan and execute our wedding. We planned everything from abroad but Mary Ann and her team made our visions come true. There are not enough thank you’s we can give to Celebrations for making our wedding day go off without a hitch. The venue was beautiful and it was truly the best day of our lives.

    Happy Newlyweds,
    Kim and Martin Halum

  35. Mary Ann,

    Thank you so much for everything you and your team at Celebrations did for us to make our special day great! Thank you for taking the time over the past year to provide suggestions, feedback and of course patience in the planning of our wedding. Thanks!

    Cheers, Kerstin and Kris Lopez

  36. Dear Mary Ann

    It has been two weeks since the wedding and I want to tell you what a fabulous job you did! As you know, the planning was in Jaclyn’s hands and she was so relaxed because she knew you were taking care of everything and you did! Even with the dawn to dusk rain, you pulled off a beautiful event. No one would have known the wedding was moved from the beach to the deck – it appeared planned and was BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for all your attention to detai. It couldn’t have been more lovely! Thank you – Nancy Valrose

    PS – The centerpieces were stunning!

  37. Dear Mary Ann,

    ~Praise God, we made it through…. :)~
    There are no words in the dictionary that would be able to summarize the gratitute we have for you and all you have done. It’s because of you and your amazing wedding planning, that we had our dream wedding.
    You, without a doubt, are the best wedding planner in the universe and we adore you.
    Thank you for going FAR ABOVE and BEYOND the call of duty as a wedding planner!!! You so kindly, gently, and gracefully pulled us through the planning process; and even when we were a pain in the butt and stressed you out, you never showed it, you smiled through it.
    We consider you a cherished friend now, one of whom we will hold close to our hearts now and always!
    Keep doing what you do – because you are so fantastic at it!
    We pray God’s richest blessings in your life!

    We love you,
    Holly & Carlos

  38. Dear Mary Ann,

    Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect. Planning an international destination wedding was a leap of faith for us, but you were instrumental in making our wedding weekend one of the happiest in our lives. In the months and days leading up to the wedding, we trusted you completely and we are so glad that we did! You were on top of all the details, provided professional advice, and organized all the elements for us.

    If there’s one piece of advice that we would give to an engaged couple planning their wedding, it would be to hire a fun, trustworthy, creative, and experienced wedding planner — like Mary Ann! We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone planning a wedding in Grand Cayman. Our joyful celebration would not have been possible without you. We feel so lucky that we found you and are so grateful for all the time and effort that you put into making our wedding so perfect.

    We cannot thank you enough.

    With love,
    Grace & Robert

  39. Mary Ann,

    Rahman and I both thank you for helping to make our day so special. You took away the stress of the day and made me feel really relaxed and comfortable. My vision was executed very well. Everyone continues to tell us it was the best wedding they have ever seen!

    Thank you again!

    Davina & Rahman

  40. Mary Ann,

    Mario & I can’t find the right words to express how thankful we are for everything you have done for us! It’s because of you and your amazing wedding planning, that we had the wedding of our dreams. You, without a doubt, are the best wedding planner in the world!
    Planning this wedding with you was such a great pleasure. You took all our ideas, wants and dreams and turned them into reality! We couldn’t have asked for anything more than what you gave us because you went above and beyond anything we could have every dreamed of!

    Thank you so much Mary Ann! You are so amazing!

    Ashli & Mario

  41. Hi Mary Ann!

    I just wanted to thank you and your team for giving Dan and I an AMAZING wedding day! Everything was perfect and everyone from Celebrations did an incredible job. We have been getting compliment after compliment on absolutely everything from our guests. They loved the wedding and said it has set the bar very high for them on beach/tropical weddings. The Wharf is a great venue but you made it look even more spectacular with all of the little details.

    I really appreciate all of the time you put into our wedding to make sure it was special and just what we wanted. It was a perfect day and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

    Thanks again!

  42. Dear Mary Ann,

    We are off on our honeymoon this morning but I wanted to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for making our wedding day so special! The flowers were MAGNIFICENT and everything I dreamed of – perfect, beautiful, romantic. Everyone commented on how romantic the setting was. Love was all around.

    I only wish it didn’t end so soon. It was so much fun working with you and I wish you all the best until we meet again.

    With love,
    Rhonda and Anthony

  43. Hello Mary Ann and Danika

    I hope that you are well.

    We travelled back to the UK safely.

    Just wanted to say a very big thank you for organising the wedding. We had a lovely day and everything was perfect.

    It is a day we will always cherish.

    Best wishes


  44. Mary Ann,

    I never got to say thank you for the beautiful wedding! It was everything I imagined it would be and more ( Garrett and Kelly loved it!). You and Celebrations did a “wonderfab” job!
    Thanks again.

    Warm Regards

  45. Hi Mary Ann,

    I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing wedding. You did an outstanding job and we are eternally grateful. The day was perfect and everything was absolutely gorgeous! We leave the island tomorrow as happy and blessed as can be because of the incredible job you and your team did going above and beyond our dreams for our wedding. Thank you so much!

    Lizzy and Brian

  46. Hi Mary Ann

    Now that I’ve had a minute to sit down and reflect on our wedding day. I just want to send you a little note thanking you for everything! You did an amazing job with everything! The decor was exactly what I envisioned and the guests are still talking about it. Adam and I had a great time and I can honestly say, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

    Coming from Canada, not very many people are able to get married or even attend a wedding as close to the ocean as we did. So it was a treat for all, not to mention the amazing weather :)

    Hope to see you again soon!

  47. Mary Ann and her team were nothing shy of amazing. I booked Celebrations only 4 months prior to my wedding date and I could not have done it without them. Anytime I called Mary Ann, she called me back immediately. I have an extremely busy schedule, but she made me feel at ease with her voicemail messages, answered all my questions in a timely manner, and I knew I was in great hands. I posted on my Pinterest wedding board all the time and we would collaborate on ideas. It was so much fun! When I arrived a few days prior to the wedding she made sure to meet with me to walk through everything, meet her team, and most importantly make sure that we were on the same page. It was better than I expected!! Her vision was spot on and our guest still talk about how gorgeous our reception was! I loved everything about my wedding. It was like a fairy tale. If she’s not already booked for your wedding date Mary Ann and Helen are the best!

  48. Mary Ann!

    We are so incredibly thankful for everything you did for us in the year we spent planning and especially the weekend of the wedding. Organizing multiple events for 145 out of towners (New Yorkers!) is not a small task! You created a mood of love and happiness that both Alan and myself along with our family and friends are forever thankful for. Every detail was perfect from the lounge in the cocktail hour to the beautiful flowers and table decorations. You also surprised us with gorgeous chandeliers and of course the sparklers for the guests! I will always call you “The General” cause you just know how to get things done!! We had the absolute best time of our lives and none of it would have happened without you. I feel so lucky to have you in my life and I hope to always keep in touch. Maybe we will renew our vows every year in Cayman. :)

    Hillary and Alan

  49. Mary Ann, you were absolutely outstanding! You made the wedding planning process so simple and stress free. You really understood our vision and style for our wedding. Every little detail (including the details we didn’t think of) was absolutely perfect. The flowers and the décor were beautiful and exactly as planned. The overall execution went off without a hitch. Thank you so much! We could not have done this without you!!!

    Melissa and Mark

  50. Dear Mary Ann,

    Thank you again – million times over – for planning our wedding!! We are so fortunate to have worked with you! Not only did the wedding exceed our every expectation (and our parents’ every expectation, and my sister’s every expectation –no small feat!) but also it was a wonderful start to our life together, which is what weddings should be all about. We have been completely overwhelmed by the positive comments we received from our guests – one of the things they keep saying is that everything went perfectly. We know that most of that is due to the expert way that you guided us through the planning process and helped ensure that each detail was carefully thought through and executed on.

    For any brides-to-be who are thinking about working with Mary Ann, here are some of the reasons why she is THE BEST wedding planner ever. For background, our wedding was a large Indian wedding with 170 guests. We had 7 events over the course of 3 days, so it was complex. The wedding was held at the Westin with one of the events at Tiki Beach. Both were outstanding venues. Feedback on the wedding was universally positive; everyone had an amazing time and many people said it was one of the most beautiful and fun weddings they had ever attended. Much of this credit goes to Mary Ann. Here are the things I loved about working with her:

    – Professionalism and Warmth: Mary Ann manages to be both extremely professional and exceedingly warm in all interactions. Working with her is a joy, and you will feel very well taken care of. Given how stressful wedding planning can be, it’s really nice to be working with someone like Mary Ann, who goes out of her way to ensure your concerns are addressed.
    – Cayman Island Expertise: Mary Ann is an expert on the Cayman Islands. She has literally planned thousands of events and weddings on Grand Cayman and she has great relationships with every venue and vendor. Because she is the top wedding planner in Cayman, we got the sense that many of the vendors were going out of their way to provide the best possible service to us, as her clients. This made decision-making a lot easier and we felt we were getting the best of the best. Finally, on vendors, despite her great relationships with everyone, Mary Ann did not shy away from negotiating on our behalf.

    – Outstanding organizational skills – as someone who is very type-A and comes from a type-A family, I was seriously impressed by MaryAnn’s command of details. She kept track of each detail, small and large, over the course of an 8 month planning process. Even more impressive, these details were executed on. This is no small task given the size and scope of our wedding.

    So, in summary, I cannot say enough about how fortunate we felt to be working with Mary Ann. If you are planning a wedding in the Cayman or thinking about getting married here, Mary Ann is the ideal person to bring on to your team. Not only was the wedding unforgettable for us, but also it was an unforgettable weekend for our guests. We could not have asked for a better start to our married life.

  51. As the photographer at a wedding, working with a wedding planner is our first recommendation! This day is the most important day of your life and the one you will remember forever…. In wedding planning one name stands above any other and that is Mary Ann Mehigan! Not only is she incredibly organized, emotional (yep she cries at weddings too) and fun she is also beautiful inside and out! I am honoured to work along side her. She makes ALL her vendors look good because nothing goes without a hitch! Hands down ….. THE BEST!


  52. Hiya! I just wish to give a huge thumbs up for the good info you’ve gotten right
    here on this post. I might be coming again to your weblog for more soon.

  53. Dear Mary Ann,

    I cannot thank you enough for all of the time you spent helping me plan and organize the wedding I have dreamed about since I was a little girl. You made my dreams become reality. You listened closely to our vision and made great suggestions. The Grand Old House was a breathtaking setting. We had asked for a romantic venue on the water and you picked out the perfect place!

    Your recommendations for vendors and decor were right on. We absolutely loved our photographer, Rebecca Davidson, and the DJ, Craig, was fantastic…. I think we had all of our guests dancing at one point! The flower arrangements, draping, candles, and linens created a romanic and elegant ambiance… exactly what we pictured.

    You are organized, punctual, and professional. If I had a question (and I had many questions) you always responded right away, solved problems with ease, and helped calm my nerves.

    Most of all, we were so thankful that you are bilingual! You helped our guests who did not speak English feel comfortable and welcomed. You paid attention to not only our needs, but everyones needs, and even spent time translating the menu for guests at dinner. Thank you for creating an organized and informative event itinerary in both English and Spanish.

    You went above and beyond and we are so grateful. Our wedding was a fairytale.

  56. Dear Mary Ann,

    We have only been back home a couple of days and are already missing the island. : (
    Before too much time passed I wanted to thank you and your crew for making our special day so perfect. It was exactly how I had imagined it. Never having been to Grand Cayman before we certainly needed quite a bit of guidance. Your suggestion of the venue, the location, the photographer and the ‘welcome dinner’ were all spot on. The celebration and ceremony were also fantastic. The table was set up beautifully. Everything was organized impeccably. And I believe you even put in a good word to create the fabulous weather conditions. : ) All of our guests confirmed it by stating it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. It took Silvio and I 12 years to get to this point and now…we are glad we waited as it was absolutely stellar! We have not yet received all the pictures Rebecca took of the ceremony and the set up but I will be sure to share them with you as soon as I get them.

    Thank you again for everything!

    Robby & Silvio

  57. Mary Ann made our special day amazing. The flowers, setup and communication were wonderful! Travelling from MN to Grand Cayman for our destination wedding left us with anxiety. Once we were on the island we met our photographer, Mary Ann and the restaurant. Mary Ann was pleasant and walked through everything including alternatives in case weather didn’t cooperate. Her services made our wedding day unforgettable. Thank you so much!

    Brant & Danielle

  58. Dearest Mary Ann,

    Thank you again to you and everybody at Celebrations for our perfect wedding day!

    With gratitude,

  59. Mary Ann,
    As parents of the bride, we cannot tell you how much your assistance with Nicole and John’s wedding meant to us.
    You and your team were so knowledgeable and professional during the whole year of planning.
    We were so impressed with your prompt attention to detail during the wedding week, especially when we were dealing with threatening weather and contemplating “Plan B”. Luckily the day was beautiful and the wedding was exactly as we had all hoped. Your team and the Wharf restaurant worked spectacularly together to make the day so specail. Our guests have been telling us over and over how wonderful everything was at the wedding.
    Thank you so much for helping to make this important event so special.
    Our warmest regards,
    Mary & Tony

  60. Hi Mary Ann

Your help with timings and coordination were brilliant and you made the whole process virtually stress free for us both and our guests.
    Will send you pictures as soon. Suzi and Simon.

  61. Throughout the whole wedding planning process, drama surrounded us…I guess it comes with the territory. So we all hear. Once my husband and I decided to plan a traditional wedding, Mary Ann was beside us the whole way, even until the very end of the wedding night! And when I say, every step of the way, I mean sharp as a tack with responding to emails, joining us for meetings with caterers, reverends, venues, I mean, you name it and she was by our side. In the beginning Mary Ann asked for me to show her ideas of what i liked, I shared images with her and let her run with it. I didn’t micromanage her and her team bc design is what Celebrations does best! I trust their judgment and the outcome was the most amazing wedding we have ever seen. The detail and decorations were magical! The thought put into every little detail was beyond words! The catering (Pappagallo) was perfection. And all the service was beyond professional. Everything was done on time and was decadent! I can’t even put the wedding day into words. The drama was all worth it in the end. Only thing is…it went by too quickly. We wish someone knew how to slow down time for us to look around and really take in the beautiful garden wedding Mary Ann and Celebrations created. I give you FIVE GOLDEN STARS! We couldn’t have done it without you and your smile and kindness. Nothing would have gotten done without you by our sides. And you stick to your guns, no matter the pressure any vendor gives you, you are there to have the bride and grooms backs, no matter the curve balls thrown your way. I love it! It was a pleasure working with you! You and your whole team amazed everyone who attended and others who see only images of the event. A dream come true. XXOO
