OWNER - EVENT PLANNER - FLORAL DESIGNER -
As owner of Mountain Top Farm, Maria-Luisa was able to fulfill her girlhood dream of owning horses. Mountain Top Farm is home to 26 pedigreed miniature horses, majority of which were bred, born and raised at the farm. Mountain Top Farm is also home to three llamas. The serenity and beauty of the farm was always a draw for friends and family to visit and many celebrations have been hosted on the farm grounds. This is the inspiration which led Maria-Luisa to share the farm with others as an event venue. Maria-Luisa’s experience and attention to detail stems from 36 years of hosting elegant parties and specially themed events for friends, family and VIPs in the diplomatic and corporate community in New York and around the world. From intimate birthday celebrations to engagement parties to weddings, Maria-Luisa has planned them all, start to finish (creating themes, creating invitations, decorating the tables and creating the menus). In all her events, Maria-Luisa designed and executed all of the floral designs and the tablescapes.
