Hi, I'm Mae, owner of Beyond Smitten Events! Nice to meet you! Beyond Smitten Events was conceived in 2013 in the Bay Area where I grew up and lived until my family and I moved to Sacramento in 2016. Beyond Smitten Events serves couples all over Northern California and beyond!  

My background is in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management in SF Bay Area hotels so yes, food is my first love and yes, making sure people are well taken care of is second nature to me! :) Corporate events and business meetings were my main forte, however, I've always gravitated towards social events - weddings especially! I've been told I have a calm, down to earth nature which definitely helps once the stress levels get high. I love meeting people who are positive and can appreciate the rainbow after the rain. Weddings are beautiful because they bring people together to celebrate love - a feeling that's so universal in this world. There is nothing more beautiful than being surrounded by loved ones, good food and great company. 

What am I smitten by, you ask? My charming husband who makes me laugh until I cry. I love his sense of humor and appreciate those who can quote comedies. I'm smitten by my two little boys who amaze me everyday with the things they learn. And of course, the belief that love always wins. I love hearing couples' love stories and am blessed to be a part of that love story in a minuscule way.

Hiring a wedding coordinator isn't for everyone and I absolutely understand the reservations some people may have. If you're on the fence or just a bit nervous about the whole process, feel free to contact me to ease your worries! Let's chat over cofee, tea, frozen yogurt or a glass of wine! I can't wait to meet you!
