My main goal is to create a handcrafted wedding that is a true reflection of you and everything that you love! I believe that every detail matters & I oversee everything from initial concept to the very last detail. I am here to simplify the complex and often confusing aspects of wedding planning by helping guide you through the planning & design process every step of the way. Wedding planning can be fun, I promise!
It seriously warms my soul to be part of my couples' love story & be with them on the most important day of their lives!
There's a strong possibility that I've never NOT cried during a first look! It's the hopeless romantic in me!
Insane florals, gorgeous textures, special traditions, personal touches...you name it! I love dreaming up all of the little details!
Planning & designing a wedding can be a full-time job, so I am here to offer my expertise every step of the way for a stress free planning process! With full planning, I am ready to be your expert partner and friend from start to finish by helping you break out the planning process into manageable steps (think very detailed checklists) so that you can enjoy being engaged! Planning is my thing, so let's do it together!
Booking your vendor dream team is one of the most important (and time consuming) parts of planning your wedding! With Partial Planning, I will make researching, finding & booking the perfect vendors an easy process, so that all you have to focus on is making a final decision. This package also includes custom design, which is one of my favorite parts of the planning process! With my custom design package, I will help you curate the overall look and feel of your wedding, pulling inspo from everything that you love!
Do you love the planning process & want to plan most of your own wedding? This package is perfect if you have taken care of most of the planning, but want an experienced planner to take the lead a few months before your wedding so that you can enjoy every moment of your wedding day. I would officially step in at the 60 day mark to finalize all of the details. Wedding Management services include detail meetings to discuss timeline, vendors hired, design elements & overall vision so that I can flawlessly execute what you have planned!
My dream wedding came true and I couldn’t have done it without her help! Her passion truly shows in her work. On my wedding day I didn’t have to do a single thing but show up, and Marissa checked on me throughout the night to make sure my husband and I were having the best day (ever)! I would recommend Marissa to anyone who wants to feel taken care of, wants to work with someone extremely professional, and wants their dream wedding to come to life!
“Marissa is an absolute gem and I'm so unbelievably happy she coordinated my wedding. Our planning sessions were always so fun and she took the time to really understand how I wanted the big day to go and what my type of style was. She had great recommendations and the day went perfectly! If anything went wrong, I had no idea, and I think that is a true testament of what an amazing planner Marissa is. She really went above and beyond and I would recommend her to any bride who is looking for the best in the bay!
It was so much easier having Marissa by our side through out the process. She helped us hone in on how we wanted our wedding day to feel for both us and for our guests, We were able to forward her communication from vendors to coordinate details on our behalf, and we could ask her questions whenever we were split on a decision or roadblock of some kind. We loved working with her and would absolutely recommend Marissa to any couple in need.
