Planning and coordinating memorable (and seamless) weddings
“Each wedding is so different, offering a new experience, so I am able to learn new things and help people bring each couple’s unique vision to life. My favorite part is watching couples say their vows, and seeing how happy they are in the moment. It’s so rewarding to see that happiness and to know that I was involved with helping them bring it all together. I really enjoy seeing that all the planning and coordination was worth it - for everyone.”
Our Approach to Wedding Planning
Angela is personally involved in every aspect of the planning process; there is no outsourcing involved. Angela will be there to talk you through each step of the process, and to address anything that might come up along the way.
No matter which service you choose, you’ll find that Angela’s strategic, detail-oriented approach allows her to see a lot of the pieces and aspects of the process that most people don’t think about when they’re planning. And, although you can be sure everything is well-prepared ahead of time, Angela’s team is there to react and respond quickly when things change - because something always does!
What You Can Expect
During your initial consultation, Angela will chat with you and your partner to discuss your interests and learn more about your personalities. She’s eager to hear about any ideas you have for your big day! And even if you haven’t started the brainstorming process, she’s able to gather key information that can help her get the process moving.
Before signing on, we encourage couples to read reviews about our services here on our website and other sites, like WeddingWire.com. We believe it can offer you a better understanding of how we engage with couples, their families and guests, and the vendors we work with. We’ll even make references available upon request, in case you have follow-up questions regarding our approach to wedding planning services.

At Angela Marie Weddings, expect your expectations to be surpassed at every turn. From the moment you begin working with Angela and her team, you’ll understand why couples choose us and are happy with their choice long after the wedding day. You can count on us to deliver exceptional service, which means:
Impeccable Attention to Detail
It’s your day, we’re here to put you at ease knowing we’ve got ALL the details handled. For a wedding to go smoothly from start to finish, it’s important to maintain communication with everyone involved. With everything else going on, it can be easy to overlook the little things - but forgetting to inform your guests that cocktail hour is on the lawn could lead to more than a few upset heel-wearing guests. These are the types of details we specialize in keeping an eye out for – and taking care of.
A Focus on Collaboration & Communication
Everyone’s enjoyment of the event is a top priority – the couple, the guests… and the vendors. As the happy couple getting married, your own enjoyment of your wedding is always our main focus. We also do our best to maintain great working relationships with every vendor we collaborate with - and to communicate with them regularly - so that they are as passionate as we are about making your wedding day perfect!
Local & Destination Wedding Planning Experience
Angela’s thorough training – combined with years of event planning experience – gives her the edge in the industry, and particularly in New Hampshire and Maine, where many of the weddings she’s planned have taken place. While she certainly has NH wedding planning mastered, she’s happy to plan your wedding - regardless of where your dream wedding destination may be.
A Customized Approach to Event-Planning
We keep up with all of the latest wedding trends – both locally and nationally. If you’re seeking to wow your guests with a modern, personalized event, we know just where to hold it and which vendors to involve. But if you’ve always envisioned a more traditional ceremony and reception, we excel there, too. We respect that all couples have different views on how their wedding day should proceed; we’ll put all of our efforts into ensuring the event is planned the way YOU want it.
Exceptional Vendor & Timeline Management
From guidance with managing costs to building a manageable timeline, we’ll tackle the growing list of tasks – as well as all of the unknowns – that often overwhelm engaged couples. And, since we’ve formed connections with some of the most in-demand vendors in the region, we can easily match their services to your vision to bring your dream wedding to life. By investing in long-term relationships with a variety of vendors, we believe they’re more willing to go above and beyond for our clients.
Honesty & Transparency
We believe in transparency; which means keeping you informed as events are unfolding. So, if an issue pops up with any one of your vendors, we’ll immediately tell you about the problem – but we’re just as quick to offer you solutions you can work with. By being honest with our couples, there are fewer surprises along the way, which helps keep everyone satisfied.
A Long History of Happy Couples
When hiring a wedding planner, it’s important to find someone whose personality works well with yours. As Angela’s couples can attest to, she’s fun when you want unique ideas and hard working when you need them put into action. The purpose of a wedding planner is to make your event easier and stress-free and Angela has had the good fortune of pulling off amazing events for all types of personalities. Angela listens – and then she makes it all happen.
