About Marian Frances Events

Marian Frances Events

Owner + Lead Planner

Hi y'all! I'm Marian. I fell back in love with event planning while putting together my own wedding, so I decided to combine my professional experience with my personal passions to start Marian Frances Events. I tap into years of experience in the media industry in NYC planning events ranging from music festivals to award ceremonies, cocktail parties to tasting events to help couples and clients bring their dream parties to life. Marian Frances Events is now based in Charleston, SC, but still primarily serves the New York City AND Charleston markets. Currently booking for 2024.

I like to work with my clients to think outside the box and push the boundaries of what we have all come to think wedding planning must be. I like to have fun with the process. Who says you have to do everything the same way everyone else has? Let's shake things up a bit, have some fun, and bring your personality to life!

In three words: Calm, Creative, Positive

This package allows me to be a true partner to you throughout the entire planning process. This is the full wedding planning package! This level of partnership is perfect for the couple who needs (or simply wants) full support and guidance throughout the planning process and into the wedding day.

I don't believe in "day-of coordination", but I offer a package called "month-of coordination", which is perfect for the couple who simply needs help putting all of their hard work together in the 30-60 days leading up to the wedding. I’ll be your partner in the final countdown to the wedding day!

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Marian! Working with her is a delight, she brings such creative and innovative ideas to all of her events. She is warm, kind and treats her clients and vendors with the utmost respect. Marian makes the planning process super easy, she's extremely organized and will have your back every step of the way. When you work with Marian, you are in the best hands. She will not only be one of your favorites vendors, but she will also become a great friend.
