Merry Me - Weddings and Events - The Team


We love planning weddings and events but our biggest accomplishment has been the friendships that we have formed with our clients and the gratitude that we have received from a job well done. Seeing our client’s joy and happiness on that day keeps us striving for excellence and surpassing client expectations. We set your event apart from all others not just because of our passion for design and planning, but mostly because we care about you, your family, your business and the memories that you will take away after your celebration.
