Yvonne is a GEM. She was our wedding coordinator for our May 24th wedding on the start of the Memorial Day weekend. From the time we met, she was very professional, funny and consultative. She provided suggestions and tips without being intrusive, understanding it was OUR special day. Also, let me not forget to mention that Yvonne gave birth to her first born little girl in the middle of the planning process. I was concerned at first, because being a mother myself I know priorities get flipped upside down when you have to care for your new, little one. However, Yvonne balanced it well and still came through for us like a shining star. The timeline she created for our wedding was PERFECT. We didn’t feel rushed and she kept us on schedule. Our guests said everything was “ON POINT”…Trust us, please do not hesitate to book Yvonne for your next event. – Mr & Mrs Murray
Yvonne was the Day of Coordinator for our wedding in December 2017. I hired Yvonne days before the wedding because, like many brides, I thought I did not need one. Thankfully, I was proven wrong. Yvonne and her team made sure no detail was missed and ensured we thoroughly enjoyed our day. We planned for 200 guests, but 275 showed up. To this day, I do not know how Yvonne managed to accommodate everyone and work with the venue (and better yet, they didn’t charge us!). She is a miracle worker! We were truly at peace with her by our side. Book her – Mr & Mrs Daniels
Yvonne was our wedding planner for our wedding in late September and she was an absolute pleasure to work with.
From our first meeting she was the calm to my type A personality, she constantly assured me that everything was going to be ok on the big day. She heard all my and my husbands requests and gave amazing alternate options for things she knew wouldn’t work and everything she knew would work, she made happen.
She worked through countless timeline revisions and even a last minute one that she handled so gracefully. She picked up every one of my calls and listened to me, through tears sometimes, as the stress built up always listening and providing calming guidance.
We had quite an international wedding and Yvonne and her team coordinated everyone amazingly!! Additionally, the other vendors where thrilled to work with someone who was so generous and respectful. On the wedding day, Yvonne and her team were there every step of the way! Dealing with difficult family members, which I am forever grateful for, making sure everything went off without a hitch, and ensuring my husband and I had the best time . She did all this with a smile on her face and a professional manner. The best part was that she had my phone for most of the reception and when I looked through it the next day I had these amazing candid photos and videos that I cherish so so much!
I would recommend Yvonne for any wedding or party as she really adds immense value and knowledge of planning! – The Marrollo Wedding
I worked with Yvonne recently as another vendor for a wedding we were both working and let me just tell you sometimes as a hair/makeup artist it can be very tiresome working with a wedding planner as sometimes there expectations on timelines are unreasonable. Yvonne was truly a breath of fresh air via email and I felt the same exact way when she walked into the room. She ensured things were happening in a timely manner but never stepped on toes or crossed boundaries that prevented me from doing my job to the fullest. I loved working with her and would and will recommend her to more of my future brides as their event coordinator. – Laura Moore Beauty
Events by Mavyen planned the farewell event for my wedding weekend and did a fantastic job. Yvonne is a dream to work with, extremely professional and willing to work with any budget. She also knows how to decorate and is extremely resourceful and scrappy which saved me a ton of money that I would have spent hiring a separate decorator.
My guests raved at the decor and the service. Overall, the experience was A+ and i can’t wait to work with Events by Mayven on my next event! – Shalewa O. #BecomingTheDukes
