Marian Timmer is the Owner and Principal Planner & Event Stylist at Minted Artistry.  She graduated with honors at The Art Institute of Chicago with a bachelor's degree in Fashion Marketing and Management.  This degree was the perfect compliment to event planning because it seamlessly integrated creative designs with the logic of business skills. While living in Chicago, Marian worked along side the lead event planner at Vosges Haut Chocolat.  After 5 years of living in downtown Chicago, Marian and her high school sweetheart husband moved to Dallas, Texas.  She loved corporate events but her heart was always guiding her to wedding planning.  After working at a top Dallas wedding planning company, Marian decided to branch out and do something different.... thus, Minted Artistry was born! Her love of working with couples on a personal level to create an unforgettable and personal wedding is her passion. She has a commitment to excellence and strives to go above and beyond her clients' expectations.  

"When I stand before God at the end of my days, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left.  And could say I used everything You gave."

Proverbs 31:10 - "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies." 

Marian loves to travel with her husband, especially to Paris! When she's not overseas traveling, you can find her reading, spending time with her family, her community group from church, or playing with her 3 year old Wheaten Terrier puppy, Daisy.  

Elizabeth Westbrook is an Associate Event Stylist at Minted Artistry.  She has a Bachelor's in Business & Marketing from Indiana Wesleyan University.  She also graduated from one of the top Interior Design schools, Harrington College of Design in Chicago.  With her love of design, colors, and textures, she is a wonderful wealth of knowledge when planning & executing a wedding.  Elizabeth is also Minted Artistry's mixologist, creating custom couture cocktails for our clients' with exceptional palettes. 

Elizabeth is a newlywed who enjoys spending time with her new hubby and shichon puppy, Emma. If you can't find her cuddling with her husband, she just might be working up a sweat on a run around Addison.
