Maria saved the day when I was having a venue crisis after all my save the dates had been sent out. It was impossible to plan my wedding while abroad (time differences, language differences) and Maria made it seamless. She is so organized and detail-oriented, and has great taste/suggestions. I am obsessed with her. She is worth every penny. I literally made an announcement during my wedding reception about her. HIRE HER!
Maria is a world class events planner who helped my son and his wife (from San Francisco, California) plan a 3-day Athenian Riviera wedding that all their friends will compare all future wedding to. The best part was that my son and wife NEVER felt stressed or overwhelmed. They always felt informed and in good hands. Maria was professional, communicative and hands-on. Her English is excellent, and her organization and communications skills fine-tuned. She was ready with every detail and more. I highly, highly recommend you seek out her services. She is worth every euro/penny and more.
My wife and I recently had the wedding of our dreams, all planned and managed by Maria.
She took the lead on planning and bringing together vendors, decorations, and day-of scheduling to craft _three_ events for our wedding guests, who flew in from all around the world. This was done while my wife and I lived halfway across the world and without us stepping foot in Greece until a few days before.
Literally, all parts of the three days of events were taken care of. Maria was able to take a few ideas we initially shared of what we wanted and create an experience filled with beauty, friends + family, lots of delicious food, and lots of dancing!
In short, my wife and I can't plan a picnic, but we had the wedding of the year. Maria, thank you for a lifetime of memories.
Maria Damanaki was an extraordinary wedding planner! She listened carefully to the couple’s requests, anticipated all of the elements for the wedding, worked with the couple within their demanding schedules (across multiple time zones), provided options and ideas within their budget and collaborated with them to plan a wedding that was elegant, over-the-top, and so much fun! It was totally enjoyed by all who attended and most of all by the couple! Not only did she plan the wedding day event and wedding party preparation events, Maria also planned the cocktail reception the night before and the wedding brunch the day after and these were also beautifully done, with class and they were very much enjoyed by all guests! Maria is kind, easy to work with, very resourceful, responsive and worked hard to provide the best selections and create a memorable event for everyone! We had the best planner and would do this all over again with her! She is awesome!
