Meet Marissa

If you don't hear a Michael Jackson song or see something with a bee on it and think of me, I'll be shocked! 

Hi! One thing you'll hear me say a few times during our time together is that I love, love. Fashion, weddings, and creating unique experiences for clients and guests is my jam. Planning a wedding is intricate and deserves attention to detail, creativity, and professionalism, but most importantly, deserves someone giving their 110% effort to making it perfect. I have a very transparent, keep-it-real approach with my couples that keeps the planning process simple and stress free.

Aside from weddings, I spend a lot of my time showing love to my Chihuahua pup, Roxie, and my two Ragdoll cats, Jackson and Bella. I am also the Director for the Miss Sacramento County Scholarship program for the Miss America Organization. Northern California is truly an amazing place to live and I love collaborating with some of the best in the industry as we create unique and unforgettable events. I can't wait to meet you!
