I have been in love with planning events every since my children were little and it started with me planning my own children's birthday parties, then my friends and families children's parties.....and gradually becoming fascinated with weddings. Once I saw how amazing former NBA basketball player John Sally's wedding was when I lived in Detroit I was beyond hooked. I started working for an event planning company in Detroit in 1994 and absolutely loved it. I eventually moved to Atlanta were I acquired another position working for another event planning company and realized I could do this easily on my own.
In 2005 I started A. Marie Events & Design LLC in Ohio, and I haven't looked back being a wedding and event planner has been my calling as well as my true passion and have been in this business for over 23 years. I've learned a lot about this industry and am continuing to learn more every single day. In 2013 I met an awesome travel agent Travel Genie Kenneth Smith and became one of his Travel Genie, for Dreams Come True out of Maplewood, NJ. To help in the planning of our Destination Wedding Clients and their guest air and hotel accommodations. I am A Mexico, Aruba, Bahamas, Jamaica, Ft Lauderdale, Melia, Fiji, Malta, Belize, Houston, La Collecion, Palace Resorts, St. Maarten, Los Cabos, Puerto Rico, Italy, France, Maldivesa,nd Guatemala Specialist and currently working on other specializations in the travel industry. I believe in learning, in order to provide the best services to my clients as possible. As a Mom of 4, now adult children and going to school and running a business........... being a wedding and event planner has been the one thing that has relieved a lot of stress for me in my life, because I love what I was doing and still do to this day........it's what makes me happy and at peace working on my clients events, and how can you be stressed doing what you love to do. So Happy Planning and we look forward to assisting you in planning your wedding, destination wedding or other special event!!
