Founder and Creative Director of À Votre Service Events®, Marie Danielle Vil-Young has been named one of the top wedding planners in the world by Harper’s Bazaar. Currently seen as a featured contestant on Discovery+, HGTV’s “Clipped” competing against other top talents in plant topiary design (with Martha Stewart as the head judge). Marie Danielle has a unique professional background as a classically trained scientist. While she holds a Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Biochemistry, botany has always remained a true self-taught passion of hers, first inspired by extended trips overseas where she spent her days in nature among the Caribbean floras. Marie Danielle spent her early professional years in a lab as a research scientist, cloning DNA and doing protein engineering, before finding her true vocation planning, coordinating, and designing high-end weddings and events. However, Marie Danielle still approaches planning all her events through a scientific lens, be it expertly managing precisely when flowers will bloom, down to the minute, or masterfully running numbers like the square footage per guest count to maximize the entire experience. Her impressive scientific background has perfectly complimented all aspects of her event work.
In addition to her coveted full-service wedding and event planning and floral design services, Marie Danielle’s online shop & lifestyle offerings (also can be found at her brick-and-mortar locations) include floral subscription boxes, plants, curated gift items, delivery of flowers locally and shipping nationwide. Marie Danielle has even translated her impeccable floral aesthetic into a collection of wooden jigsaw puzzles available at her online shop and in pop-up store in Nordstrom.
Marie Danielle is an internationally sought-after speaker on all aspects of event planning and floral design, and she has become a mentor to many. She also regularly holds her own floral design workshops, and Marie Danielle has been featured and quoted in numerous prestigious magazines and newspapers, and even a book. She has been a featured speaker on many prominent platforms, including the Knot Pro Forum, the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) and more. Despite her unprecedented success in such a short time, Marie Danielle remains characteristically humble and when asked, she would say that she values quality, integrity, authenticity, and seeks beauty in all things. Marie Danielle always puts the client at the center of all she does, ensuring harmonious, luxurious events and experiences down to the last detail. Marie Danielle is available for bookings as a speaker and for TV appearances. Contact us at 800-757-0549 to schedule your appointment or to book Marie Danielle for her industry expertise.
