Bridgette Kolb reviewed Rare Bird Events5 star

June 2017 Marilee at Rare bird Events was our coordinator and florist for our June 2017 wedding at the DeKoven Center in Racine, WI. We cannot say enough good things about Marilee! Because we had a relatively DIY wedding, we knew we needed someone to help us keep track of all of the details. We chose Marilee at Rare bird Events based on her very impressive experience with wedding planning.

Leading up to the wedding, Marilee was there for us with any questions, concerns, or ideas that popped up. She was so organized and on top of all of the little details that go into a wedding. I honestly don’t know how we would have survived the wedding itself without her! She was there for any little issues, keeping us on our timeline, keeping track of all of the vendors, etc. She did all of the setup and take down of our numerous decorations. She took our vision and made it even more beautiful than we imagined!

Her floral was to die for, I received so many compliments on how “pinterest worthy” our bouquets were! Her prices were so reasonable for all of her services. Most importantly, Marilee is an incredibly nice person who we genuinely enjoyed spending time with. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to our friends and family for events and floral!

"Marilee, was INCREDIBLE! She was quick to respond to all of my questions and was a great help!"

"We saw Marilee as welcoming and competent right from the beginning."

*Wedding Wire Review*5.0/5.

Marilee and the Rare Bird Events team took our wedding dream and made it into a reality. Her extensive experience in the wedding industry was very apparent. Leading up to the wedding, she was very knowledgeable on every part of the planning, and if I was ever uncertain about what direction to go with some aspect of the event, she had no shortage of ideas to pick and choose from. On the big day, her and her team were there every step of the way to ensure that everything took off as planned. The decorations in both the church and reception hall were breathtaking, and I didn’t have to lift a finger. The flowers were also done by the Rare Bird Events Team. All I had to do was tell her the vision I had for the flowers, and she made it happen better than I could have ever envisioned. I can’t imagine the extra stress I would have experienced if I had, had to deal with all of these things on my own. I was also able to leave, worry free, for a honeymoon early the next morning because Rare Bird Events did the complete take down of both the church and reception hall, and even delivered it to my house the next day. Overall, Marilee and her team were so pleasant and enjoyable to deal with. All of this, along with their efficiency and attention to detail is what makes them a company I would recommend to all of my closest friends and family.



Once upon a time:

I dreamed of a perfect day. I imagined the perfect person by my side.

On this day we would stand in front of those we love, & promise forever, & ever and mean it.

Magically that day is here.
