For as long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated with event planning. A New York native, I attended Saint Agnes Academy and Queens College. In the past twenty-five years, I have had the pleasure of running many events, some of which are Fashions Shows at the Boca Raton Resort and Club for five hundred guests, Catholic Charity Annual Ball in Palm Beach at Mar-a-Lago, a Birthday Celebration on September 24, 2013 for Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle, Golf Tournaments at Polo Trace Golf and Country Club, Weddings, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Anniversary Parties, Graduation Celebrations, the Women of Distinction breakfast at Boca West Country Club and also had the pleasure of working with the Notre Dame Club in Boca Raton. Most recent The United States Marine Corps Birthday Ball Celebrating 244 Years. Photography compliments of Tracey Benson.
With a proven track record working with resorts, golf clubs, corporations and an Executive Chef when needed, I gained the expertise I needed to execute event services and consultation service. Through many years of personal and professional experience with numerous events, involvement in the community, passion for planning, and entrepreneurial spirit, I decided to start my own business - Elegant Occasions by Marie, Inc.
From coordinating the layout of a banquet room, the colors of linens and flowers for the table, I enjoy all the aspects of planning. From the moment you choose the date of your event I want this to be a celebration to touch on all the senses. With attention to detail, I will create memories of a lifetime for my clientele and will help make their vision a reality. Elegant Occasions by Marie, Inc keeps three core values in mind when planning any event: Honesty, Integrity and Compassion.
