From Maya, the Director-


“I have helped plan every kind of wedding you can possibly imagine.  From an intimate gathering in a family home, a large informal celebration on a horse farm, to a traditional formal event in a country club, and a theatrical wedding with jugglers and performance acts.  My own wedding was done on a shoestring (my hubby and I paid for it ourselves as starving artists here in NYC), before then and since many of the weddings that I have planned have been on tight budgets.  However I have also planned weddings and events where money was not a concern, and the nice thing about that is that it gives me ideas to work from when I’m dealing with a wedding where we’re trying to keep the cost down.  Weddings should be whatever you want them to be.”

Fundraising and Corporate & Non-Profit Events:

“New York Cares, ART START, The International Institute at the University of Michigan, Sonic Legends, and The Mortal Folly Theater NYC are just some of the organizations I’ve worked with as an event planner.  The key to non-profit and corporate event planning is simple, make the event fit the organization!  The key to creative and successful fundraising, whether it is grassroots or high-end gala – they key is FUNdraising!”

Party Planning:

“Victorian Tea Party Baby Shower, Wine themed bridal shower, 35th Birthday blow out in a private bar, 4 year old’s birthday party with magic acts & clowns, a co-ed belly dancing bachelorette party, Sci-Fi themed Halloween costume ball…I could go on, but you get the point, I love parties, life should be celebrated!”
