Mary Sanders Owner and Creative Designer, MaryMe
I simply adore weddings. I consider it a great privilege to partner with brides (and grooms!) and help them plan their special day. Every wedding is as unique as the two people preparing to say, “I do.” We know that as you plan each detail, the whole picture becomes a reflection of the bride and groom.
My passion for weddings began decades ago when I started my first wedding notebook, stocked full of magazine pictures that captivated my imagination and first gave me the desire to create beautiful weddings. Ten years ago I founded Mary Me to help brides bring to life the dreams of their wedding notebooks. From comprehensive event management and design to full service execution, it is among my favorite things to work with brides and see their vision for this magical day fulfilled.
I feel called to marriage ministry and love being able to use the gifts the Lord has given me to help brides plan and enjoy their wedding day, as well as encourage them in fostering a Godly marriage! I would love to serve you and to make this time as fun and stress free as possible!
I am married to the love of my life, Adam, and we are blessed to have three beautiful children. Pictures of our wedding still decorate my home, reminding me daily that the wedding day is the first special day in the thousands of special days that will make up a marriage. So I always remind my brides that the most important element of their wedding is beginning this adventure of marriage with the right mate, built on a solid foundation of faith. After that, every detail is icing on the cake!
I cannot wait to meet with you and your fiancé to bring the wedding of your dreams to life!
Madison Hayden Wedding Planner and Designer
Madison Hayden joined Mary Me three years ago, quickly becoming indispensible to every Mary Me wedding. Madison is an exceptional designer and artist, two talents that make her uniquely gifted to help brides bring the wedding of their dreams to life. Madison collaborates with brides, coordinates with vendors, and confidently directs wedding day events. Along the way, her contagious joy and selfless heart nurture brides, grooms, and their families.
If you ask Madison why she loves planning weddings, she’ll quickly tell you it’s because she loves LOVE, as Audrey Hepburn once said, “I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.” Mary Me quickly learned that Madison’s passion for love translates directly into perfectly planned and flawlessly executed events. Her love of lists captures all the details, and her artistic eye brings wedding day dreams to life.
Madison is a true southern girl and calls Montgomery, Alabama, home. When she is not planning weddings you can find her decorating her home, painting, or just enjoying the outdoors! She loves to spend her spare time at the beach or on her family farm. Among her favorite things, a Restoration Hardware magazine and a diet coke are top of the list!
