In 2010, Maria began her journey as owner of Events by Maria. Located in Southern California, Maria chose to open up her event planning business in the beautiful city of Temecula. While Maria’s store is in SoCal, she’s willing to travel to as far as Mexico for her work.
As an event planner, Maria offers three services: Event Management, Partial Planning, and Full Planning. However, what really sets Maria apart from other event planners is her close relationship with her clients. Maria truly takes the time to get to know her clients; to attest this, she says many of her clients extend baby shower invitations to her, and Christmas cards. Maria attributes her close relationship with her clients to the close bond she forms with them in the planning process. She says, “I give them all of me when I am working with a couple. I love getting to know them and their families.”
Maria’s love for all things wedding related, combined with her passion for the celebration of love make her nothing short of great event planner. In the future, Maria plans to expand her business into the form of podcasts and Vlogs. She is even working to create a show that revolves around relationships, marriage, weddings, and family.
For those looking to join the event planning business, Maria has some great advice. One good tip us to be a good listener. Clients need to feel that they are being listened to and understood. Another suggestion from Maria is to be a problem solver so that you think of solutions quickly when unexpected situations occur. Lastly, Maria suggests to be in love with love, and everything wedding related!
