For as long as I can remember, planning & design are areas that I've always been passionate about. I've known I wanted to work in the wedding industry since my sophomore year of college, and began my career planning corporate events in 2012. After I assisted with my first wedding a few years later, I was hooked & the rest is history!

The reason I fell in love with wedding planning is because I am a true romantic at heart and I feel so incredibly lucky to be a part of my couples’ love stories. Plus, helping my couples plan such a special moment in their lives, really fuels my soul. Don't be surprised if you see me shed a few happy tears on your wedding day (or maybe a lot of tears haha)!

Scroll on for a few things you really need to know about me!

Hello there! I'm Marissa, your new wedding planner, best friend and iced coffee enthusiast.

Hi, I'm marissa

Alright, the secret is out - I am obsessed with all shades of burgundy & berry! If you love it as much as I do, and want to incorporate it into your wedding design, then I know we will be best friends.

One of my favorite Saturday rituals is going out to grab a delicious iced coffee. A Philz Ecstatic, sweet & creamy, is the way to my heart! So don't be surprised if our planning meetings take place over a coffee date.

My recent passport stamps include Austria & Hungary. I also have a new goal of traveling to 40 countries before I turn 40. I'm always passport ready, so I wouldn't hate if you asked me to plan your destination wedding - just saying.
