Mindy Weiss and Debbie Geller began planning weddings together thirty years ago, combining their unique talents to create a formula proven for long term success. Since then, they have gone their separate ways, and continued to thrive in their own businesses, both consistently being counted amongst the best wedding planners worldwide. Being lifelong friends, they have decided to partner once again, to share with you their process and pro-tips for reducing stress while planning your perfect wedding day with their 12 course MAD About Weddings content and program.
Mindy Weiss is known around the world as one of the industry’s most creative minds and calming presences on an event day. Lead by her infectious spirit of kindness, Mindy and her energetic team have been conjuring up imaginative ideas and one-of-a-kind details for clients for almost 30 years.

She’s had the immense honor of working with some of the world’s most notable couples and clients, including Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Russell and Nina Westbrook, and the Kardashian family. No matter the celebration, Mindy prides herself on infusing her clients into the details so that no two events ever look and feel alike.
In addition to designing stylish and remarkable celebrations, Mindy has expanded into the world of lifestyle and brand collaborations to help her fans and fellow event planners in their own pursuit of creating memorable events. She’s written three best-selling books – The Wedding Book, The Wedding Planner and The Baby Keepsake Book and Planner, and has created her own wedding day emergency kits, candles, and so much more. With a desire to help people celebrate all over the world, she continues to expand her offerings and find new outlets for her creativity.
