To be completely honest, I didn't always value Expansion. I was more about #Growth
.

And while there is an overlap, they are quite different!

I am beyond excited to take Balloon Basics 101 beginning this month. Balloon Design has become such an incredible event element, as well as enhancement. I am beyond honored to have the fantastic Melba Remice @melbasballoons join our team at The Event Professionals Institute.

Follow us @theeventprofsinstitute for more information and my stories. I added another IGTV video yesterday and if listening to me talk doesn't make your ears bleed πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€£ I'm sure you will have a good laugh!

So give us a follow and please ask questions! You know I love to talk!

Happy International Women's Day!

I'm going to share a secret with you. I don't do this often but was inspired today
.
πŸ˜‡πŸ˜―πŸ€―
.
I limit my posts and shares on ALL social media because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
.
πŸ₯ΈπŸ₯Έ
.
While this is a kind gesture, it's also a bit of an injustice, don't ya think?
.
So, today I wanted to share images of women who inspire me but thought that sharing just this one and posing a question, would be better
.
Do you recognize the iconic woman in this photo?
Her name was Eunice Kennedy and she was an incredible woman, a champion for the disabled, and creator of The Special Olympics.
Today I tip my hat to you, Eunice.
You continue to inspire me, as you have since I was a young girl.

Who is your inspirational woman? If you had to just name one, post in the comments below.
.
.
Also, check out my IGTV on @theeventprofsinstitute from today!
.
New class Balloon Basics 101, beginning this month. Hope to see you there!

I've seen a ton of memes about 'letting March back in' and giving March another chance.
.
I'm all in! πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
.
This month marks a year since Covid 19 became our reality. For a year, this month, I have purposely gone silent on my Lavish Occasions social media pages.
.
This month, I resume and celebrate all of my amazing couples who were so incredibly brave and my couples who are now going full steam ahead in their wedding day plans.
.
Expect photos and stories of the 11 small weddings we planned/coordinated between August 21st and November 7th. Some of them will continue the merriment with second, larger celebrations and I will be sharing those images as well.
.
So thank you for understanding our social media 'still'.... Stick around! Lots to share and discuss.

Xx,
Marissa

Stay well and I hope these tricks can help you navigate the tough days.

To say β€˜no one understands busy more than me’, is an understatement! With four children under the age of six, I am a stay-at-home mom during the day and (cue Wonder Woman) spin into the Wedding Planner, CEO and Events Expert/Instructor when the clock strikes!

This was just one moment from a perfect, beautiful day at the Park Chateau a few weeks back.
.

Planning with Danielle and Alan (and their fabulous families!) was such a JOY!
.
.
Here, Danielle is with her mom and sisters in the Bridal Suite. How perfect is this??
.

Shout out to Nathan of The Day Collective for the brilliant capture and the Bridal Attendant #dreamteam at ParkChateau for always being (frankly) AWESOME

Team work makes the dream work!

A nice Lavish Occasions #Vintage Couple!

I was planning for about 10 years at the time and had opened Lavish Occasions just 3 years earlier. They were such a great couple and I really enjoyed working with them!
