what i value

Getting to know vendors on a personal level allows me to carefully match my clients with a talented team that will not only bring their vision to life — but also who will be personally invested in their one-of-a-kind love story.

Maura Bassman Events is a relationship-focused wedding and event design company, based in beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio. Let's get to know one another and plan your special day!

Following several years of event production experience as an indoor and outdoor venue coordinator, Maura Bassman Events was founded in 2014.

Through my experience as a venue coordinator, I learned the importance of building relationships — both with my clients, in order to give them a personalized, comfortable experience, and also with vendors.

Planner, designer, and all-around wedding day magic-maker.
