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! I am the owner and lead planner of Meant 2 Bee Events. 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. I am also the Director for the Miss Sacramento County Scholarship program for the Miss America Organization. I am a proud Sacramento native and I love collaborating with some of the best in the industry as we create unique unforgettable events. The team we have built is the team you want by your side on wedding day. We can't wait to meet you!
