Which is why we’re committed to making sure your perfect day becomes a reality. Whether you are planning an intimate beach ceremony or an elaborate ballroom bash, we are your experts on everything wedding.  

Our Team Truly Values the Importance of Memories.

Our goal is to pair our clients with a planner that best suits their needs, their story, their location, and their style.

Timeless Styled Events is supported by a team of totally different (and amazingly awesome!) personalities. Not every bride wants to be a princess, and not everyone wants to throw the party of the year. Your planner is someone you should be able to connect and build a relationship with. 

We take into account every wish, detail, and concept that our couples think of for a personalized experience that says, “This is my wedding, and it is everything I dreamed of!” We work with our clients to ensure that each part of your wedding is a reflection of who you are and the moments to come.

Our Amazing Support Staff


Associate Planner

A lover of lists and romance, Marina is a detail-oriented planner who loves seeing all the pieces of an event come together seamlessly. After getting her start in event planning at a golf club in Chicago, she quickly discovered her passion for planning weddings, and she’s thrilled to bring that passion to the TSE family.

Marina has a Bachelor’s in business with a specialization in event management, as well as a Master’s in business administration. She’s a type A perfectionist, and her eye for organization and detail makes her a wonderful addition to our event planning team.

Marina came to Virginia Beach in 2018, when her husband began law school at Regent University. Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Marina is a city girl at heart—but she’s slowly beginning to appreciate the country girl that’s emerged since moving to Virginia.

Mary’s ideal bride is an adventurous and fun-loving free spirit. She wants to skip the stuffy protocols and provide her guests with a fun and memorable experience. She’s got a Bohemian style, loves all things vintage, and isn’t afraid to step outside the box to create her dream wedding.

Mary Pilkington

Lead Planner + Creative Director 

Mary is a passionate event planner who loves having a busy schedule filled with tasks that require creative problem solving—making this industry and career the perfect fit for her personality! She spends most of her days in and out of meetings, corresponding through email, and juggling the social media sites for Timeless Styled Events. 

After Mary graduated college she immediately accepted a job as a business paralegal, where she obtained proper training in business law. After spending 2 years behind a desk and planning her own wedding, she realized she was not reaching her full potential. So she set out to actually run and manage her own business, rather than helping create them for other people.

Mary grew up in Pungo, Virginia Beach, and still lives there to this day. She is married to her high school sweetheart, Jamie, and they have a beautiful son named Beckett. They also have two adorable and rambunctious dogs and one fierce mini pig. Mary’s attention to detail, bubbly personality, and ability to be quick on her feet ensure that your event will come together seamlessly.

Kandis’ ideal bride is bubbly and romantic. She wants her wedding to be full of gorgeous florals and greenery, and she has an eye for simple elegance. She has a vision for her special day, but she also fully trusts the planning process, and allows us to use our expertise and creativity to bring her dream to life.
