Along Came Mary Productions is featured in the 50 Top Event Planning
Companies Worldwide

Along Came Mary Productions - Famed for Celebrity Weddings

Here are a number of reviews for Along came Mary:

 “Today, Along Came Mary Productions has 60 full-time employees, a
15,000-square-foot facility in Los Angeles and four catering vehicles.
The firm handles "hundreds" of events each year, Micucci says, ranging
from top-flight social affairs such as the 1998 wedding of Barbra
Streisand and James Brolin to corporate events such as a Universal
Pictures holiday party for 18,000.”

“Mary Micucci is the president and owner of Along Came Mary
Productions (ACMP). Starting the company from the back of a Volkswagen
bug in the mid-seventies, Mary has built ACMP into the number-one
event coordinating and gourmet catering company in southern
California. ACMP has developed the concepts for Hollywood's most
celebrated events and established new and innovative production and
culinary standards. Mary and her company have gained worldwide renown
not only for their dominance of the Hollywood entertainment and movie
premiere scene, but for their vast corporate list as well.

ACMP occupies a place at the top level of wedding production as well.
The Hollywood Reporter has dubbed Mary "the Epicurean Steven

“When you hire Along Came Mary you are getting more than two decades
of experience and a full-time staff of 45, including award-winning art
directors, a floral department, a research department, and of course,
a gourmet kitchen. They can help any couple through the wedding
process from beginning to end — including Jennifer Aniston and Brad
Pitt. Like any good Hollywood production company, they are able to
design a concept, make it a reality and create magic. And they would
know about production companies since this is the company that most
studios turn to when they host their biggest events. In fact, Along
Came Mary was on hand to donate their time and food to replenish the
hungry celebrities at the recent all-star telethon America:
A Tribute to Heroes.
