Love notes from our couples
Julia & Jason
"My husband and I decided the first weekend in February to be married on our 5 year dating anniversary of February 26! I tend to be a type A personality, and probably planned the set up and decorations for my Thanksgiving dinner longer than this...but after my conversation with Mary I just knew that everything would be ok, and that she "got me"! We had one conversation at first : date, flowers, time, location, and how many guest....I knew the date for sure, that we were eloping just the two of us, married at sunset (she looked the time up for that day) and the cake. The rest we kinda open ended with general ideas and worked out over emails, which I prefered...I sent pictures of my dress, and a lipstick color that I would wearing, and wanted the flowers to match! AND BOY DID THEY! Mary and Patrick showed up earlier that I'd imagined to our hotel, everything was so laid back and about us! We felt so comfortable like we had known them forever. Mary is helpful when you need it with positioning, and invisible in those moments between you and your spouse. I looked back at the vows exchange photos and they were to tender and sweet, and captured so much emotion moment after moment and I told my mama I didn't even know she was right there! My husband is very shy, and does not like being the focus, but she got some photos out of him that could be on GQ! EVERY SINGLE PERSON we have shown our pictures to has a very different option about which photo is the "best" and what that means is they are all amazing, and now they can choose their own personal style, the river with the bridges, the cobblestone, the trolley tracks, the park benches... Mary was beyond amazing, and the photography has made people feel like they have not missed a thing! The cake is amazing, SO amazing! I was even able to cut sliced and freeze them to give to our parents, and they are beyond excited about that! My flowers were amazingly gorgeous, large fresh flowers, and what I originally decided on for my husband didn't look the best, she still brought it because it's what I asked for, but also made something else just encase and that's what we ended up using! Now that I am already married, I hope my husband and I can continue to come back to Savannah to have photography sessions with Ms. Mary. This woman was a God send to us, and made our wedding day so special, romantic, free flowing, and beautiful! And best of all I have all the amazing documentation from her amazing photography! Thank you Mary!"

"I don't know where to begin... Thank you again for making our day so grand! Everything was perfect & I mean perfect! Thank you for making sure everything turned out great. The flowers were so colorful, the cake was yummy and the wedding site was to die for, and the pictures... WOW! Thank you for spending so much time with us We will be sure to recommend you!"
Rebeka & Hugh
"Your wedding planning was wonderful and the photos were amazing! The day before, I kept saying "what were we thinking to have a wedding on an island that we have never visited?" But we got the right wedding planner and it could not have been better. We can't say enough, Thank you!"
Barb & Brian
"We live in Minnesota and wanted a beach wedding. My husband found Yes Love Weddings with a simple search on beach weddings in Hilton Head. The Google ads for wedding planners seemed to cater more to the larger weddings and then we happened to see Yes Love Weddings.
From the moment we clicked that link, we could not have been happier. Yes Love Weddings has the ability to accommodate the full spectrum of wedding sizes and has different package sizes ranging from the very large wedding down to our simple, very small group.
Coming from out of town and never being to the island, we really got lucky in finding Yes Love Weddings as we did have a lot of questions and needed a helping hand in the process. All the way from the beach permit, to application steps, to the officiant (Patrick was great!), everything was laid out as planned! When it comes to the cake, just choose the one you want...it will be the best as Mary says...delicious!
With the attention to detail provided, the level of care and compassion, and the overall experience leads us to believe that Yes Love Weddings is a perfect fit for anyone...If Mary can make a group of 4 feel like they are at a ball on the beach, I can only imagine what she could do with a very large group!"
Calah & Michael
"Our experience with Yes Love Weddings was fantastic. From start to finish, Mary helped us to craft our dream beach wedding on Tybee Island, GA. The cake, bouquet, boutonniere, and decor was exactly what we had envisioned for our small sunset ceremony which was officiated beautifully. We couldn't be more pleased with our wedding day and would highly recommend this company!"
Tracey & Jerry
"We celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary at Hilton Head Island, SC to renew our vows.
Mary was so patient and thoughtful throughout the planning process. She planned details we would have never thought of which made our day even more special!
The cake was so delicious and beautiful that we were reluctant to cut it! The bouquet was perfect and the bride loved it. Everything was amazing.
Mary took such remarkable photos and suggested so many different poses from romantic to silly that will make every moment on our day last forever. Her 20 years of photography experience shows in the final photos.
We would highly recommend Mary for your wedding event."

"Yes Love Weddings has made our quickly approaching wedding day so much easier! We're from Ohio and getting married in Hilton Head this May. In December we drove down to look at some resorts and ceremony venue options... Mary made time to see us on very short notice for a consultation and she has been there every step of the way to help us through the process! She knows the area very well, which is comforting considering we're so far away! Any time we have a question, she’s quick to respond to emails or calls. She has gone above and beyond for us...even went to look at beach houses for my family to stay in! What a relief it is to have Yes Love Weddings take care of it all. Worth every penny and then some".
