Gina at Make it Mariko was incredible. Although we ultimately made the hard choice to not to go with her because of our own budget constraints, the interview and pre-planning process was outstanding, and we just had to write a glowing review based on that. She is quirky, fun, full of good ideas, and such an organized, insightful planner. She was honest and flexible, and if you can afford it, definitely go with her!Sent on 02/20/2019

Make it Mariko founder, Gina Rosales, helped us through the wedding planning process and the day of our wedding could not have been more perfect.Sent on 10/24/2017
Gina's expertise, attention to detail, sense of humor and candor helped us to make hard decisions, keep our wedding aligned with our personalities and values, and ensured we had a great time doing it. Just as I was getting a bit overwhelmed with all of the decisions, in came Gina with clarity and spunk. She was ready with an exhaustive list and we worked together to pare it down to what was important for us to have, experience, taste, and feel on our wedding day. On the big day, Gina flawlessly wrangled a massive bridal party, over 10 vendors, 140 guests and smoothly kept everything going. She also surprised us with a fun bridal party tunnel during our entrance as Mr. & Mrs. which made me cry with pure joy and still makes me tear up when I watch the video. :) Thanks Gina!
I will never be able to repay what Gina and Make it Mariko gave to me and my new husband that day, but we can recommend her for your big day and hope to pass on the fun and love she and her team gave to us.

My sister = Bride from Baton Rouge. Me = Maid of Honor from Texas. Of course my sister wanted to do her bach party in Napa, CA :\ So I hired Gina from Make it Mariko to plan the wine tasting weekend for us.Sent on 04/04/2016
Gina was so easy to work with and made it so easy to make decisions! From the start she was very communicative over email and the phone. She planned everything from the weekend itinerary, finding us a VRBO house, finding amazing wineries for us to visit, scheduling the tastings, researching restaurants for a 5 course tasting dinner, and booking our transportation (a fancy limo style shuttle).
She created a really organized Google presentation and went over it with me page by page so we could make decisions on housing, restaurants, and transportation. She also made sure we stayed within our budget and she gave us a super easy spreadsheet after so we could track and split our weekend expenses easily. I'd definitely recommend Make it Mariko to help with your wedding planning! If we were doing the wedding in CA we'd definitely hire her again.
Mariko is a proven professional that has planned great events from 50 to 3000. Always extremely organized and always has a smile.
