Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays!

What a year it has been…

In January, Mary Dann Wedding & Party Coordinators moved into a new office.

We filmed several TV shows: an episode of “Married Away” at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Canada which aired on the Style network and an episode of “Platinum Weddings” at La Costa Resort & Spa in San Diego, which aired on WE network. You should be able to catch a re-run or two; if not, we have copies at the office!

Along with launching her stationery line with Mimio Papers, which focuses on luxury wedding notes of gratitude, Mary has launched a new DVD, “The Balanced Planner: For the Bride, The Planner, or Both”. You can find out more by visiting our website at

In October, Mary was asked to be the key note speaker at the annual Association of Bridal Consultants convention in Orlando, Florida where 400 people attended her talk on “Balance in the Wedding Business: Emotionally, Mentally, Physically, and Spiritually.”

Mary’s daughter, Grace, turned 2 and her husband Jimmy continues to be the best Dad and husband. Her family and loving team are a huge part of the success of Mary Dann Wedding & Party Coordinators. We welcome Constance Curtis ( her sister was a past bride of ours), and Holly Schoenke (our former intern) to the team to join Leila Khalil, who handles our PR and Marketing. Our staff is looking forward to a wonderful year of planning!

Although Mary will be on maternity leave from February 1st through April 1st ( yes, she is pregnant with Sophia Helen, who is due 2/22/2008) our office will still be operating at the high standards you have all grown to know and count on.
