Creating Memories,  Not Just Events


With over 10 years planning, designing, and executing weddings, golf tournaments, Mitzvahs, Quincereas, holiday parties, and corporate events, it was time to take the plunge and go into the ultimate business of ourselves. We are committed to providing a beautiful and stress-free experience. We pride ourselves on our classic styles with a unique twist, attention to detail and calming presence.


    ‘Marea’ translates into ‘tide’ in Italian. With ties to the low-country, coast, and honestly who doesn’t feel better immediately when they’re by the water? It was a way to have a unique name with classic ties which is exactly what we strive to convey in each of our events.


    There are all different styles, and we love all of them. We are happy to bring your vision to life, whether inspired by others, or help you start from the beginning.


Emily Goldstein, owner and lead coordinator, has established relationships with the best industry professionals, and we will work closely with them to orchestrate all logistical elements throughout the entire planning process.

There are always moving parts and high emotions throughout the planning process, and we greatly value our unique relationships we have with all our clients. We will customize our process to you and your event, because there is no formula to event planning and design. We always want your event to represent you!

    We cannot wait to meet you, and bring your dreams to life!

About the Owner


Emily Goldstein has been involved with events since college at The University of Alabama. Roll Tide! But don't worry, we won't hold any rivalries against you! With over 8 years of events experience we strongly believe that events are a personal business!

After serving as a venue coordinator for many years in Atlanta at the following locations: Big Canoe POA, Lanier Islands, Indian Hills Country Club, and The Georgian Club. Having established a host of vendor relationships, and industry knowledge it was finally time to branch out and open Marea Weddings & Events. Emily has planned, designed and executed events of all shapes and sizes from anniversary dinners and proposals for two, to golf tournaments and weddings of over 500. With no detail lost or forgotten in-between.

Opening the doors and fixing your train as you take a deep breath before walking down the aisle is the absolute best! Watching you sneak kisses on the dance floor as time seems to stand still is cherished. Watching you walk through your reception space and see all your hard work and details come together is heart-warming. Bouquet tosses and cake cutting always brings a smile to our faces. Telling you when it’s finally time for the last big moment of the day to run through sparklers and enjoy the next chapter in your lives is always bittersweet. After all your dreaming and planning we want you to feel like we are not just a confidant, but a friend.

We are honored when couples choose us to be with them every step of the way through their engagement and after with baby announcements and anniversaries! We thank you in advance and can’t wait to meet you!

Get In Touch


It’s still your wedding, don’t treat it like it’s option 2!

Yes there’s a pandemic, but keeping you and all of your guests safe and healthy is our number 1 priority! Weddings and events are still moving forward with plans, there are some limitations and precautions we all are taking, but your event can still be just as fun as gorgeous we promise! 


During planning: 

We will work with you and what you are most comfortable with during this ever-changing climate! Happy to have zoom/phone call sessions. We are also happy to meet outside and socially distance when possible for our in-person meetings that just don't do over a screen. 


We will help you monitor and make the best decisions for you and your guests. It’s important to know where everyone is traveling from, and if your venue has any postponement options as we navigate this ever changing landscape. 


For your day: 

Our entire team will wear logo-ed masks, this also helps your guests know who to go to with questions throughout the day. We purchased them from a local vendor just outside of Atlanta, if you’re interested you can visit their store here: 


We also make sure to wear gloves throughout the day, we are pinning boutonnieres, fluffing your dress before you walk down the aisle, or setting out personals, so we keep a stash to make sure they are swapped throughout the day. In addition, if we are not wearing gloves we all have hand sanitizer on each person for ourselves and guests as they ask. 


Most importantly we will work with your venue and all vendors to make sure we meet their interpretation of mandates and requirements. While we are not the COVID police, we encourage and remind everyone to help keep everyone safe. 


Keep a smile under those masks it won’t be here forever, and until then you’re still marrying your person, and we’ll help you party safely!
