Groom: We want to thank you again for all that you did to help make sure our wedding turned out perfect. We’re still hearing about it! Thank you again!

Mother of the Bride ( 2 weeks before wedding): You have surpassed all my expectations as a Wedding Planner!!! I remember early on you had said how much you love details. Your talents are A+++ and I know will be one of the biggest reasons for the success of Lorren & Jason’s Big DAY!!

Mother of the Bride (after wedding): Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

Bride: The details are what made the day ours, and the planning and personalization of those details really shone through on the day, and made each moment even more special. It has also been so fun to hear what each guest remembers – the toasts were a standout moment, the band was universally enjoyed, and the service was impeccable, but every guest seemed to connect particularly with one small detail or another; the book and personal description featured at each table, the sprig of lavender tucked into each napkin, our use of my Mom’s very traditional cake topper. These are things that were authentic to us, but were polished and executed with your expertise and knack for placement. From the start, I hoped to include at least a small nod to our love of literature somewhere in the celebration, but I’m not sure I ever would have been emboldened to include the literary elements throughout the reception without your guidance and assurances that each touch would work together so seamlessly. I hope the above reflects how glad I am that we had the opportunity to work together.

Merry Beth was so highly attentive, responsive, communicative, and productive that I was almost surprised to see photos from other stunning Aisle of View weddings crop up on her website – I honestly felt like we were Merry Beth’s only client! I knew as soon as we had our first meeting that I would enjoy working with Merry Beth, but even I could not have anticipated at the time what a crucial and special role she would play, not only during the planning, but during the wedding weekend itself. Because she showed such care, organization and expertise at each stage of the planning, I had complete confidence that Merry Beth would execute on our plans to create the best evening of our lives – and that faith was so well placed! i was able to enjoy each moment of the entire weekend without a single worry about execution or timing or anything else, and I think that is an incredibly rare thing for a bride to be able to say. Thank you, Merry Beth, for making the year of planning such a fun and enjoyable experience, and for making February 7th truly the best day of our lives!

Mother of the Bride (2 days before wedding):  “Lastly, thank you for everything.  The reason I am at peace is because of you.  You have made this process so enjoyable…I almost hate to see it end.  On a personal note, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you better.  You are a truly special person who is gifted at what they do.  Thanks for always making me feel special!! ”

Mother of the Bride (after wedding): “The best money I spent on my daughter’s wedding was hiring Merry Beth.  She has a unique way of making you feel like you are her only client.  She was a trusted partner in the planning process and did a truly exceptional job the wedding weekend.  I was able to hand everything off and enjoy the magical moments of the wedding.  Most importantly, she allowed me to relax and be a guest at my daughter’s wedding.  Merry Beth is worth every penny!  I can’t tell you how many cards, emails and texts we have received about the wedding.  People are still raving about it!  Thanks for making it so special.”

Parents of the Groom (for the Rehearsal Dinner):  “Lee and I can’t begin to thank you enough for the most wonderful wedding weekend ever!  Everything was just perfect.  We have never met anyone as talented as you are to create such a complicated event AND such a wonderful person to work with.  It was a whirlwind weekend with so much fun and joy for everyone who attended.  This could not have happened if it wasn’t for you.  I know that Lee and I will think of you often with the fondest of memories.  You are THE BEST and it has been a great pleasure to know you and to work with you.  Thanks again!”

Bride: Everything looked so beautiful and perfect! You did such a great job! Thank you! We received so many compliments on it being “the best wedding they’ve ever been to”. Also, a lot of people commented on what a wonderful coordinator I had and how “good” you were. The girls were very impressed with your emergency kit. I think the hotel and your staff, along with you, pulled everything together perfectly! I could not have done it without you! Thank you Merry Beth!!! You are awesome!

Tori & Jamal | August 23, 2014 Ceremony | Private Home & Benaroya Hall, Seattle, WA

Tori called me almost a year in advance and wanted to know if I could come out to their home to see if it was possible to have their wedding ceremony there. When I did the site visit, I was blown away with how beautifully it would work for having the ceremony there. Jamal wanted to know if it was possible for the guests AND the Groomsmen to enter by boat. We had Argosy out to check out the water depth, length of dock, etc. and it all worked! Voila – the plan was born. Benaroya Hall was chosen as the reception site as Tori & Jamal wanted somewhere big enough to hold all of their guests (almost 300), a very large dance floor and somewhere beautiful at night. It was the perfect choice. With them living in Los Angeles during basketball season, Tori and I did LOTS of emails and phone calls to put things together, and took advantage of any trips they made home during the season. One of the most important items for Tori was to have a very TALL cake – well, she got it! Over 5-1/2 feet before being placed on the table. Wow! Guests were shuttled via luxury transportation from Benaroya Hall, to an Argosy boat, to their home, back on the Argosy boat, back on the luxury transportation, and then back to Benaroya. There were a LOT of moving parts that day and it was nice that the weather cooperated!! It was fun having Brian McKnight sing their 1st dance for them and Sir Mix a Lot sing “Baby Got Back” once the dancing really kicked in. They sure know how to party! Tori & Jamal are so genuine and so loving and so much fun to be around – they never cease to amaze me. Everyone has so much respect for them. They were a complete joy to work for from beginning to end. It was an absolute honor to be chosen to help them create this magical evening.


Bride & Groom:  There are not enough words, nor enough space to write and express how much we loved working with Merry Beth!!  When we say she is the absolute best at what she does, it is still an understatement!  We hired Merry Beth on the spot after doing a ton of research on who would be perfect to guide us through everything for our amazing wedding day.  Needless to say, we hired her on the spot after just a phone consultation!  She has the BEST wedding team in Seattle and guided us to all the best vendors which we couldn’t be more pleased with!  She never missed a beat, is completely thorough, was there every step of the way and far exceeded our wedding day expectations…all while making sure the Bride was always taken care of!  Not only did we hire the best wedding planner, but we also gained an amazing friend in Merry Beth!  Thanks again for the most memorable day of our lives.

Bride & Groom: Wow! We just got back last night from our honeymoon and I cannot stop thinking about how PERFECT our wedding was – THANKS TO YOU! You were so great helping with everything .

Bride & Groom: We just wanted to send a thank you for helping us have the wedding of our dreams. The night truly did go about as perfectly as we could have asked for. I’m sure your experience was a little more stressful than ours (!), but you should know that we really had an amazing evening. And our stress level was low thanks to you. I’m sure you know that it just flew by for us and we are still remembering little things each day. We have had so many friends and family tell us it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. One friend is calling it the “wedding of the century”! Thank you again!

Mother of the Bride: So glad Jen emailed you with her praise for your exceptional work! We both know the wedding would have not been the success that it was without you – not only during the wedding week, but for the many months that preceded it. Now that it has been nearly three weeks since the wedding and we are finally coming back down to earth, we can focus on what made the wedding so wonderful (other than the Bride and Groom!) and we are very grateful for all that you did. After all we went through with the shuttles, gift bags, etc., it was totally worth it based on the comments we received from our guests! I am going to miss talking with you! If you should ever need yet another recommendation from a happy client, please let me know! Thank you again for making Jenifer & Victor’s wedding dreams come true!

Bride:  Thank you so very, very much for everything you did for us.  Saturday was beyond perfect.  Everything was exactly how we wanted it to be.  It was more than we could possibly ask for.  You made our day the magical event that it was.


Mother of the Bride:  WOW!!!  Thank you, thank you , thank you.  Sarah’s day was so beautiful and we have you to thank.  Every step of the way you calmed, organized and were there for us.  I am so grateful we found you and that you said yes to us.  The last 8 months have flown by, and I so enjoyed getting to know you and work with you.  Our friend Marty has already told Victoria she has to get married here (they live in San Diego) so she can hire you!  If I know anyone getting married I will quickly advise them to call you first!  Thank you so much for helping Sarah to have the day she dreamed of her whole life.
