My name is Mary Allegretta-Butler and I have been a Wedding and Event Coordinator on the Central Coast and live in beautiful San Luis Obispo for over a decade. Although I was already an event manager at a wedding venue, in 2003 I decided to expand my education in the wedding industry and became professionally trained through the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants. I signed up for every Hospitality course offered locally, which established a solid foundation to my true understanding of the industry.
My background is in event management as well as being a lead server with caterers. I have worked as an on- site event manager at prestigious venues in the California Central Coast including the Inn at Morro Bay, Villa Toscana the Carlton Hotel and Ventana Grill. My interest for the industry spread over to the catering side when I took on serving and bar-tending positions with local caterers. The experiences opened my eyes to the many factors of what a successful event requires and I believe, sets me apart from any other coordinating services; having the knowledge of running a venue, providing catering and most importantly coordinating an event.
I absolutely love events, especially weddings. I look forward to every wedding day that I work regardless of if I am playing the role of a server or the wedding planner.
I feel continually blessed each time I partake in someone’s wedding. I still have to pinch myself sometimes. I mean this is the most important day of two people’s lives! I would imagine, the level of amazing-ness would be right next to being a doctor and delivering babies.
After many years of working as a venue manager,I have decided to take the leap of faith and start my own independent coordinating company. It would be my honor to assist you with your special day!
