What our clients say


"Marcie, where do I begin? I cannot begin to thank you enough for planning such an extraordinary Derby Weekend! I am beyond grateful for you and the event would not have been successful without your organization, planning, and execution. The opportunity to work with you was such a joy! I still cannot believe how perfect every single detail was for the entire weekend. Mixing a group of 30 guests consisting of friends, family, and business colleagues was not easy but you were able to make everyone feel special.

I will highly recommend you for any event planning in the future and hope that we get to come to Derby again next year. Thanks again! "

- Alison Houpt, Assistant to Chairman and CEO - Thurston Energy, LLC

"Dear Marcie, We would like to thank you for organizing what was termed by our sponsor a "world-class" congress. Your expertise in selecting The Louisville Slugger Museum for our Friday night dinner was the perfect choice - especially for an international congress. The coordination of the tourist activites at the Museum along with the popcorn and pretzels and nachos were an excellent combination which made the guests feel they could take part in the true spirit of the museum.

The room the conference was set up in was perfect for our needs. All the materials we needed were right there for us. The table decorations looked great and everyone enjoyed the evening.

What impressed us most Marcie was your professionalism along with your hard work. It felt like you gave our event 100% of your attention and even though we know we were not your only event to coordinate. Your wealth of knowledge on coordination as well as your many years of expertise in the field makes you an excellent person to recommend. The class you bring to any even is invaluable. We were even suprised to find out that we even came in under budget.

Thank you again Marcie for a wonderful job. You have our highest recommendation"

"As a long-time corporate client of A Thorough Fare, when I asked Marcie Hancock to plan my wedding I knew I would receive a well-planned event that attended to every detail. What I didn't know was that she would provide so many personal touches that would make my wedding unique and special. I've been married for three years now and my guests still rave about what a wonderful event it was."
