Ivy Marie is a self-made wedding planner and self-taught designer + florist who is very passionate about her career. Although she works mainly in North Georgia, Ivy loves to travel to all the beautiful wedding venues in the surrounding areas.
"I absolutely love what I do. Being able to work closely with couples while they plan one of the most important days of their lives, is truly a honor. I love seeing my clients light up when we are discussing the details of their wedding. My main focus when coordinating a wedding is, the couple. I want their day to be the best of their lives!
I will be the mediator for all of the vendors and venue staff so that the couple can be in the moment with their guests. Creativity and organization are two main components to what my job entails. I want to ensure that the vision my clients have for their wedding comes to life in the most beautiful and elegant way possible."

"I don’t think it is possible to say enough about the amazing job Ivy did for my wedding. From our first meeting, the level of professionalism and organization was outstanding. Then, the day of the wedding, her skills truly shined! My bouquet, florals, and centerpieces were nothing short of phenomenal. Everything was gorgeous. Her organization and assistance through the wedding day was so helpful. She had our signature drink ready for us in our personalized cups at the end of the ceremony (how she got a hold of them I do not know). She had appetizers ready for us so we wouldn’t miss out, helped the photographer, and ensured everything about our night ran smoothly. Whether for florals or as a wedding coordinator, I STRONGLY recommend Ivy as your provider. And if you are on the fence about hiring her for your coordinator- or hiring a coordinator at all - DO IT! You have one magical day. One wedding. And I know she will do everything in her power to make sure it is just as you envisioned it." - Bride
"Where to begin with Ivy? I literally (and jokingly) asked her to be one of my bridesmaids the first time I met her! She was a blessing we didn't know we needed! Ivy was our day-of coordinator and florist but she was so much MORE. She went above and BEYOND any expectations. She brings you so much confidence throughout the entire wedding planning process and so much ease the day-of. Our flowers were GORGEOUS. I received so many compliments. Ivy was so attentive to every detail and truly makes you feel like nothing could go wrong on your day. I cannot recommend her enough!! Look no more, she's your girl!" - Bride
"Ivy's goal is to you give you the wedding of your dreams on your budget! If you know what you want, she's on board with it.... if you are unsure, she will lend you her own beautiful style. And on the big day? She is going to manage everything so that the bride, groom, and family can just focus on each other and the event. I've been to weddings where the planner was center stage, ordering people around and being obtrusive. At my daughter's wedding, Ivy blended into the background, anticipated our needs, slipped the bride a glass of champagne, and quietly cued that it was time to move to the portion of the festivities. When we began the planning process, I really didn't think that we needed a planner. I was wrong, and I am very grateful that we found Ivy Marie!" - Mother of Bride
I can’t even imagine what this wedding day would’ve looked like without Ivy! We hosted our daughter’s wedding on our family farm, sounds simple right? Not so simple! But Ivy helped plan every single detail from renting pews to renting dishes, meeting with the caterer and everything else in between. We also used her for all of the flowers, how she did it all I’ll never know. She was easy to communicate with and “yes” always seemed to be the answer. She was very attentive to our needs and making sure that my daughter and I were at ease on wedding day as she insisted that we relax and enjoy the day and leave the details to her (that is not my nature but I felt so comfortable with her and confident in her abilities that I was finally able to step back and let her do her thing) The wedding was absolutely unbelievable! Ivy’s ideas and vision came together in a magical way while still honoring our desires and wishes. My daughter’s favorite aspect of her wedding? “My bouquet!!”. The flowers were AMAZING! This was truly the most beautiful bridal bouquet I’ve ever seen and the bouquets for the bridal party were equally perfect. My advice…give Ivy room to be creative, she will not disappoint!! Would I recommend Ivy? Without hesitation, YES!!!! Thank you Ivy for everything you did for this special day, it truly wouldn’t have happen without you!! - Mother of Bride
Ivy was the best coordinator and florist I could have asked for! She kept everything rolling the day of the wedding and was super attentive to my husband and me during the entire day! She was easy to communicate with and always answered all our questions. Our flowers were so so beautiful, and I could not stop staring at my bouquet. I was having a hard time envisioning what it would all look like, and it turned out even better than I could have imagined. They were beautifully arranged and exactly what I had hoped for!! - Bride
