I reached out to Marissa Mortimer of Lavish Occasions because I was looking for an apprentice position in the Event Design field immediately following my college graduation.
Once hired, Marissa wasted no time broadened my horizons by letting me work different events as an assistant coordinator.
The result was gaining on-site experience under both titles and becoming even more confident in myself.
One thing I love about working with Marissa is that when she has a design job, she allows me to be as creative as I would like to be. There are no wrong answers.
So far, I've found my experience with Lavish Occasions to be extremely helpful in grasping and fully understanding the most intricate parts of the business.
I would recommend Marissa and her Lavish Occasions team to people who would want a caring, professional, detail oriented, organized group to make their event one to always remember.
Starting as an intern for Donna and her company was the most amazing experience, full of learning and growth. I am still learning things from her everyday now as a lead coordinator. She is a strong and confident business woman and teacher, I am so thankful for my time working for her and growing my career.
I have been fortunate enough to have been a student of Marissa's and work with her on her team at Lavish Occasions. Marissa's expertise in the field, professionalism and vibrant personality make clients and employees alike want to work with her. She goes above and beyond to share her knowledge and provide support to anyone who shares her passion for event planning. I cannot thank her enough for all of her encouragement and guidance throughout the years of her being my mentor.
