You've probably looked at several different wedding planners by now. So why should you choose me?

I will be the first to admit that I am not for everyone, and that's ok. I am all about drawing others to God. Think beautiful wedding where the sacrament is the focal point of the day. With a degree in music, I THRIVE when it's important to the bride and groom to plan a meaningful and sacred wedding ceremony.

Why? It's no secret that the divorce rate is almost 50%, and less and less people are getting married. We need strong sacramental marriages more than ever. That's how White Lily Weddings got its name. Lilies represent both Mary and Joseph, the model for all marriages. May we live by their example of what it means to be a good husband and wife, and our marriage stand out like a lily among the thorns in society today. 

Hey hey,
I'm Marie!

let's cut to the chase. . .

am I speaking your language? Let's connect!

Fun Facts

favorite flower:

Lilies or roses are the way to my heart ;)

How my husband proposed:

He proposed in downtown Chicago at Buckingham Fountain at sunset! He planned a full day of activities downtown, then took me out to a very fancy dinner. After dinner we went for a walk down to the lake and that's when he popped the question! Of course I said yes! His hidden photographer then did a quick photo shoot with us before we went to Ghirardelli to celebrate and call family to share the exciting news! 

favorite night in:

I'm a sucker for some Chinese food or charcuterie and a period drama. My FAVORITE is Downton Abbey, but recently I started The Crown, and I have to say I'm enjoying it so far. 

best wedding moment:

It never fails that EVERY time I see a bride walking down the aisle I burst into tears. It is just so beautiful to watch the two come together for this monumental moment that will change their life forever and affect generations to come.
