Hi, I’m Cydney! I was born and raised in Northern Virginia and I can’t wait to help you with your wedding! I’m a huge Disney fan and love to sprinkle a little bit of magic everywhere I go. One of my favorite parts of a couple’s big day is seeing all the wedding day details reflect their unique personalities.

If I’m not at a wedding or at Disney World, you can find me snuggling my cute purple tailed puppy or singing at the top of my lungs (Broadway here I come?)!

Of all the decisions you make in your wedding planning process, I promise hiring Vida Events will be the best one! They are insanely talented at what they do. They provided us with thorough planning services before our wedding. I didn't think we needed a planner, and then in our first conversation Megan she asked me about microphones and event insurance -- things I truly had not even thought about that were hugely important! Not to mention, she wrote our whole day-of timeline for us!
But the real magic Megan provided was on the wedding day itself. She truly made it a 100% stress-free day for me and my husband. Any vendor issue that came up (and a few did), I never even knew about until after the wedding. Megan was so calm and collected, just making everything happen behind the scenes.
- Megan Nord

You are in great hands with this dynamic team! I was so stressed getting ready for my event and Megan from Vida made my worries melt away. She handled everything with pose and positivity. She styled our event beautifully and everyone only had nice things to say about the decor. I could not have begun to do the amazing things that these ladies did. I am so happy I hired them to help with my event and cannot wait to work with them again. I have had other coordinators, and these ladies go above and beyond to make your event successful. I will never look anywhere else. Customer for life!
- Jessie Tennis

Vida Events was absolutely amazing to work with. They are all professionals who know exactly how to handle every situation. They were there when we needed them most and helped deliver the most special day. They are extremely on top of their game and I could go on and on. Day of, Megan and Sarah were super hard workers and it was evident to everyone watching. They did a phenomenal job and helped to make our wedding day such a wonderful day. Thank you Vida Events for EVERYTHING!!!
- Joanna Woodruff

We were one of those couples that refused help for our wedding, up until we realized that there is no way we can handle, nor would we want to handle, the small details and overall flow of our wedding day. We were given Vida Events as a recommendation from a friend. From our first conversation with Maria, she was stress-free and easy-going. With the month before the wedding, I was actually having anxiety (as any bride does) over whether or not Maria would/could remember everything I wanted. From where the décor goes, to order of bridal party – how could one person remember all this?! WELL SHE DID. The day was FLAWLESS and smooth, and I can’t thank Maria enough. 
- Katie Leaton

Megan took me on after my other planner dropped me due to COVID. She immediately made me feel comfortable with her and helped me changed my date twice and my venue! She was my person for everything for the months leading up to the wedding and I felt so much better knowing she was there on the day of. Seriously AMAZING wedding planners here and it was the best choice I ever made.
-Rachel Kerkstra 

Where do I begin?! I have no idea what our wedding day would have turned out like had Megan with Vida Events not been there. She handled all the little details and it allowed me, our friends, and our family to enjoy the day without having to worry about anything other than what the day was all about. I am a strong believer that everyone needs a wedding coordinator, even if it is just day of. I didn’t realize it prior, but the biggest perk to having Megan there was that she takes the hit for everything instead of the bride. All questions were directed to her instead of me, and she kept people on track making me appear to be calm and relaxed. Everyone commented on how smoothly that day went and Megan / Vida Events is the only reason that was possible.
- Bailey Marie Kloc

My wedding day genuinely would not have gone as smooth as it did without Maria. She was so organized and helpful to me every second of my entire day, as well as the rehearsal. She is also such a fun person to have around, even when I had a bunch of people already around me! Definitely recommend Vida Events as they were competitively priced, and extremely enjoyable to have as my day-of-coordinator.

My name is Mary, owner of The Pink Poppy. We are a florist servicing NOVA, and we had the pleasure of working with Vida Events! What a smooth, easy, and organized team of professionals! As someone working behind the scenes, an experienced event coordinator is invaluable and money well spent. I highly recommend Maria and hope to work with her again!
- Mary Sall, Owner of The Pink Poppy

If your goal is to hire top-notch professionals who are not only amazing at what they do, but are fun as heck to be around - you've reached your destination. Make sure you book Megan & Maria for your next event!
- Jennifer Williams Kluemper

Megan and Maria go above and beyond for your special day! They made everything on my wedding day run smoothly. I didn’t have to worry about anything! I highly recommend them for your next event!!!
- Nicole Brown

Vida was so fun to work with. Their eye for, and attention to detail is absolutely outstanding. I would recommend them wholeheartedly and would gladly work with them again.
- Matthew Bean

I loved having Vida Events plan my anniversary party! Megan and Maria met with me several times before the event and made sure everything was spectacular- they even saved me when I had to make last minute changes to my catering (seriously, there wouldn't have been food without them). They're such fun people and delightful to work with; I'll definitely have them plan my future events!
- Elizabeth Andrews

Maria did an amazing job communicating with all vendors for our wedding which was in Houston at the Cherie Flores Garden Pavilion on 11/28/2020. She is exceptionally organized and a great communicator. She is the perfect wedding planner. She was there from start to finish on our wedding day and made sure everything ran according to plan and handled every situation smoothly. We highly recommend her!
- Zubia Khan

I worked with Maria on June 1st at Blue Hill Farm in Waterford, VA. She is one of the best wedding planners and coordinators I've worked with. She was very organized leading up to the event and her communication skills are excellent. She provided a detailed schedule to all vendors ahead of time and was very responsive to messages. On the day of, we worked closely together as I was the DJ/MC and she helped facilitate all major events of the day. I highly recommend Maria and her team.
