At Make it Mariko, our goal is to create magical, meaningful, and unforgettable moments for you, your family, and loved ones.
Share with us your wedding vision, and we’ll bring it to life — with a smile, and within your budget. If you have no idea what you’re doing, we can help with that too! (In fact, this is our specialty since we love a blank canvas.)
The first consultation is always complimentary, and we’ll work together to create a custom package that fits your specific event needs. With every event we plan, our family grows. Join us!
What You Can Expect:
Why Make it Mariko?
While many planners focus on simply creating Pinterest-worthy photos, we focus on creating the moments that can’t be captured with a photo. Moments that make you feel, make you cry, make you laugh, give you perspective on life. These are the memories that will stay with you for life and that your guests will never forget. (Don’t worry, we’ll create those Pinterest-worthy photos too.)
We love non-traditional weddings where you create your own traditions as a couple, LGBT, and POC weddings!

DRIVE THRU WEDDINGS!
*NEW* wedding offering! Getting married during coronavirus? We gotchu. We are pros at planning Drive Thru Weddings so you can still see your guests, and party in SAFE social-distancing style!
Make it Mariko is simply the best. We had been planning our wedding with Gina for nearly two years when COVID struck. Undeterred, we decided to move forward and get married. It was only because of the excellent work of Gina and her team at Make it Mariko that we were able to pull off a beautiful wedding. She even had to source venues, officiants, photographers, and florists for us at the last minute as other vendors backed out two weeks before the date. We simply could not have done it without her! She is calm, cool, and able to pull off spectacular events under pressure. We had a live-streamed ceremony with a drive-thru reception and we could not be happier! “Thank God for Gina and her team at Make it Mariko” is all we have to say!
We highly recommend booking Gina to help with your wedding! We chose Gina as our day-of coordinator after seeing her work first hand at a friend’s wedding. Prior to our wedding, she was flexible and responsive in coordinating our vendors and helping to perfect our timeline. She offered great suggestions based on past experience which we really valued, since my husband and I chose to plan our own wedding and haven’t been a part of any other weddings yet.
Day-of, she worked behind the scenes to make sure everything ran smoothly and seamlessly. She asked helpful questions about things we forgot to communicate (for example, we forgot to share that our florist needed the flower vases back, so thank goodness she checked when she saw guests eyeing the flowers!). Overall, Gina was very on top of everything and fabulous to work with.
Gina and Make it Mariko did an incredible job coordinating our wedding! We are still reliving all of the amazing moments and we will continue to do so for years to come. We were in such capable hands, and I’m glad we picked Make it Mariko for our special day. Gina is hyper-organized, has a take-charge attitude, and we were able to simply enjoy ourselves, knowing that she would take care of everything. We could not have asked for a better event planner!
Gina Mariko is a proven professional that has planned great events from 50 to 3000. Always extremely organized and always has a smile.
