About Me

Maddie Schmitz 
Owner of Better Together

Hi friends! I'm Maddie, wife to Hayden, dog mom to Zinc, lover of all things design, workaholic, and a type 1 enneagram. Let me share with you why I do what a do! Better Together Planning was born out of a passion for helping other people. It is my goal to make the most important events in my clients’ lives be as memorable and enjoyable as possible, especially their wedding day! We specialize in making sure that you are planning your wedding with ease and comfort. Our goal is to support you along every step and make sure all the to-dos of wedding planning are accomplished.  I’ve learned to be flexible and accommodating to each client’s unique needs and preferences. This involves managing vendors, setting up décor, executing the timeline, passing out the tips, keeping the details in order, and making sure the bride is taken care of. In order to ensure you, all of your family, and friends can freely celebrate with you, I hope you’ll let me plan your  wedding day!

"If you are debating on hiring a day of wedding coordinator, JUST DO IT. Hiring Maddie was one of the best decisions I made to kick off my planning! She guided me throughout my entire planning process, had great insight on details I never would have thought of without her and really helped bring my vision to life the day of my wedding. I was able to be in the moment with my friends and family without any worry about something not going the way I planned. She really went above and beyond to enforce my plans and make the whole weekend go flawlessly. I can’t give her enough praise. She will make sure that your wedding goes off without a hitch!" -Alesi

"I was an overwhelmed bride living in Fort Worth trying to plan our wedding in Corpus Christi. My MOH found Maddie, and from the first time we spoke I could tell she is an expert at her craft.

We had four months to plan about 75% of the wedding. Maddie gave me a timeline and really made sure that I got what I wanted every step of the way. I'm not a wedding savvy person, so there were a lot of things I didn't know about or didn't have an opinion on. I really loved that she took time to explain everything to me (repeatedly) and if I didn't have an opinion on something, she had suggestions or examples for me to use.

Our wedding day was flawless. She checked in often, everyone knew what they were doing, and she was able to make changes at our request on the fly.

I would highly recommend Better Together Planning :)"

"I am so grateful to have hired Maddie as my wedding planner! My first wedding venue closed down and suddenly in the midst of the pandemic I was trying to figure out what to do and feeling frustrated with the wedding planning process. Enter Maddie! I was able to talk with her about what my husband and I wanted the event to look and feel like and from there she crafted a plan to make it happen! She handled all the parts of the wedding planning process that had been frustrating me like vendor outreach and coordination and instead I got to focus on just making the fun decisions! She has worked with so many vendors in the area which really came in handy when the first makeup artist I had found suddenly wasn't available. Through Maddie we were able to quickly find another amazing hair and makeup artist! Overall Maddie is supreme! She makes sure to understand your vision and takes the time to get to know you personally. I didn't worry about a single aspect of my wedding day thanks to Maddie!" - Lexi 

"I am beyond happy with Maddie and her team for their hard work and dedication ensuring our wedding way was perfect! Maddie (owner) was essential in the planning process and her expertise and advise was spot on! The quality of work, setup, and execution left me in tears when I saw the ceremony and reception. She delivered all and more of what is expected of a wedding planner. Every detail, every step, every moment of our day was perfect thanks to Maddie and, for that I will forever be grateful!!!! :)" - Julie
