BRIDE + CLIENT LOVE
“Maria truly was the most amazing coordinator I could have asked for! She helped me plan my romantic, March wedding at Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse. Her easy going, down-to-earth, sweet personality was what won me over in the beginning and helped keep me grounded throughout the entire process. I can be a worrier, so Maria was able to assuage my fears help me stay focused on the important matters. She is always professional. She gets things done without being overbearing or bossy. One thing that really impressed me was how much all of the vendors loved her. They were always remarking how wonderful she is and how much they enjoyed working with her. That speaks volumes to me. Throughout every step of the process I always felt she had my best interests at heart. She really listened to me and understood what I envisioned for the day and she made it happen. The day of the wedding went smoothly and beautifully despite a bit of mud and wind! I truly cannot express how wonderful Maria is! I am so grateful for everything she did to make my day perfect.”

“Wherever you are getting married, hire this wonderful woman! Choosing to hire a wedding coordinator was the best thing I did during the planning process because Maria was an invaluable teammate to have along for the whole journey. As a creative myself, I wanted someone to collaborate with on ideas, who also could guide me while I was otherwise blinded through the process of planning. She was great at communicating with vendors, and making sure my vision was being met. She loves to use the analogy that planning a wedding with her clients is like making a baby together. And our baby was VERY beautiful and PERFECT!!! I should also mention here, that she literally did have a baby shortly after we hired her, which did not slow her down at all. Dixie came along for the ride on most of our meetings and was a fun treat to have. The initial reason I chose Maria after speaking with 12 other coordinators was because she was very real, to the point, and I could tell she had a good eye for design and planning. We spoke the same design idea language. I felt like I was talking to an old friend as we easily chatted for about an hour on our first phone call meeting ever. I highly recommend her!”

“Maria and her assistant were incredible the day of my daughters wedding. They were calm, organized and seemed to be very much behind the scene getting things done. I really didn’t notice them during the event and yet everything went on time as planned. Leading up to the event, Maria was always there to assist and give advice to my daughter. Maria is creative , organized, available and has great ideas and put it all together for us. The ranch was beautiful and my daughter had an incredible wedding. We would highly recommend Wunderland & Co. for you wedding or other important event. We loved them”

“Maria was so crucial to seeing the wedding through to completion. She felt like a true friend who genuinely cared about the event and wanted to see it succeed as much as we did. She was quick to respond, an excellent communicator, and was SO on top of things. I had been doing so much myself that when she stepped in to wrangle the vendors and make the schedule, and ask me the right questions, and help fill in some last minute details that had fallen through the cracks..I can’t really express how grateful I feel. Almost everyone who attended has said the same thing “I’ve been to a lot of weddings, but this was one of the best”..and I really believe them, because biased as I may be I have to agree. Could not have done it without Maria.”

“Maria from Wünderland & Co is highly recommended by us to coordinate and style your important events. She was our wedding coordinator and pulled off a beautiful wedding in a remote place with plenty of challenges. She has an attention to detail and was very available to me during the process. I loved Maria’s style and personality. You won’t regret your decision to have her style and coordinate your event.”

“I did all of the pre-planning for my wedding, including all the decorations and placement of everything. I needed someone to help execute my planning the day of and I needed someone I could fully trust. Wünderland & Co. did exactly that and I had NO stress and NO worries the day of. I didn’t have time to put together my guest table cards onto the wooden pallet I brought, and they took care of this for me the day of! Maria knew exactly what I wanted and didn’t bother me with any questions the day off, only which type of beer I wanted while I sat at my sweetheart table with my new husband! I would HIGHLY recommend Wünderland to anyone and everyone. Truly a company that is going somewhere and makes your wedding day much less stressful!”

“I had the pleasure of working with Maria for not only my wedding, but my bridal shower as well.
Starting with my bridal shower Maria went above and beyond on the details. I gave
Maria zero direction as to what I wanted my shower to be, but somehow she was able to pull together the perfect setting for my personality and taste. She did a fantastic job on all of the details and really personalizing the day.
Maria was not only my wedding planner, but to her surprise she became a counselor as well. I was so overwhelmed by the process and the details, however having Maria by my side and walking me through the process made it much more bearable! She talked me off the ledge numerous times and kept me trucking along to make sure I made all of my deadlines and selected vendors. We had a very non-traditional wedding reception and Maria constantly reminded me that this was mine and my husbands day and to not worry about what everyone else thinks. Mar
ia was very proactive and constantly took initiative to keep my wedding process moving along, but insured that my opinions and taste were being met and incorporated into this special time in my life. The day of the wedding Maria working with all of the vendors to ensure that any missteps were kept from my knowledge. She did an amazing job of keeping the day light and fun, yet very organized and methodical. I was really worried that my vision for the day would not be exactly what I was wanting, but somehow Maria took my vision and put a cherry on top! Originally I did not want a planner involved, however after going through the process I don’t know how I would have done it without Maria. One thing I know is that it definitely would not have been nearly as smooth!
I cannot thank Maria enough for her handwork, timeliness (which is hard to come by) and professionalism! She truly took my special day to the next level! I highly recommend Maria! Thank you so much Maria!!! XOXO.”

“Wünderland & Co planned a beautiful couples wedding shower for 40 of our friends and family. The details in everything from the decor, to the games and the food were astonishing. The shower had a casual, yet elegant feel. She also managed to make it feel like a shower that was appropriate for both the male and female guests. Everyone had a wonderful time, I could not have asked for a better experience.
