Client Testimonials

The best decision we made for our wedding was hiring Marissa. She is organized and professional but what really caught our attention was how special she made us feel and her sincere desire for our wedding to be wonderful. Throughout the whole process she was thoughtful, thorough, and a true pleasure to work with. As the big day approached and the details started to pile up, we became more and more grateful to have her in our corner. Marissa is compassionate with her clients but not afraid to advocate for them with vendors. Finally, it is worth mentioning Marissa’s artistic eye. When it came to certain details we weren’t sure what we wanted she expertly picked out items that fit into our rustic theme. Cannot over-recommend.

Marissa is an absolute dream! So easy to work with and so much fun. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her on our wedding and no detail was forgotten. Many vendors told us that she was the best wedding planner that they had ever worked with, and that speaks volumes. We were able to relax and enjoy our day because we were so confident in Marissa.
— Rebecca Smith Decesari, Bride
Marissa was a tremendous asset to us as we took on a new-to-us event that involved logistics that were beyond the scope of what our staff had the capacity to handle. Her assistance provided a very positive return on our investment, and she is a joy to work with! Marissa is a perfect professional, always following through on details and working ahead of deadlines. I highly recommend her!
