"Marisa with Century Decor is phenomenal!
She was just as excited for my wedding as I was. She is a great communicator with amazing follow through. She was the brains, the glue and the flare. Her rental inventory is also beautiful and unique.
I could go on and on with how amazing she is and how my wedding could not have been as perfect as it was without her. "

"Marisa & Monica are absolutely AMAZING! Both were incredible on the wedding day, handling whatever was needed! Including fixing broken suspenders and braiding a groomsmen's hair!

She loves love and facilitating the ultimate celebration of couples' love for each other!
"If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding planner or event coordinator I implore you to meet with Marisa and her team.
My wedding felt like a fairytale dream wedding come true. I am still in disbelief that it was MY wedding. It was that perfect. Marisa and Gabby did an amazing job with decorations, fixing last minute layout concerns, working with the vendors, working with the bridal team and making us feel relaxed.
If anything fell apart I don’t know about it because it never was brought to my attention. That’s how amazing this team was at problem solving.
All of our guests were blown away with our wedding. Hands down we owe it all to Century Decor Studio. Hiring this rockstar team is one of the best decisions we made when wedding planning. 10/10 would recommend."
