Marisa M. Manna
Certified Beverly Clark Wedding Professional Anyone can try to plan a wedding. But not everyone has the training, experience, connections and natural ability to do it as well as Marisa Manna.
With more than 10 years experience in the hospitality industry, Marisa understands the traditions and protocols behind successful event planning. These include expertise in decorating, etiquette, product and service selection, ceremony and receptions, trends and traditions.

Unlike many planners, Marisa has completed formal training and holds a certification as a Beverly Clark Wedding Professional. This demanding 14-part program exposes wedding planners to the many diverse aspects of planning a modern wedding. It also requires that they pass proficiency testing before being awarded the course certification.

As a professional wedding and event coordinator, Marisa has a great sense of fashion, color and design. She puts this talent to work for you, creating an event that is the perfect complement to your own style and desires. You’ll enjoy creating with Marisa as you collaborate on colors, styles, fabrics, tastes, sounds, ambience and more. Whether you want dramatic beauty or just elegant simplicity, she weaves the various elements together to create a work of art that says “you” on your special day.

Marisa has worked hard to establish a sterling reputation for well organized, successful and beautiful events. She is known locally as a business owner who respects the other industry professionals with whom she works, treating them with courtesy and diplomacy. This helps her gain the extra cooperation and effort required to produce flawless events—which are always result from a team effort.

Marisa believes weddings should be fun, and brides report that it’s fun to work with her. Of course, there is a lot of hard work and serious decisions to be made. But this should NOT be a grim, stressful time. Enjoy yourself, and we’ll help!

Marisa is expertly qualified to plan an event or wedding. In addition to her experience, she is organized, detail-oriented, imaginative and a wonderful people-person. She always possesses a mature judgment, patience and the knowledge to orchestrate your special day.

There are not enough stars to rate So Eventful and especially Jessica Kerns. I hired her to help me plan my husband's 50th birthday and she did so flawlessly. It was one of the best nights of our lives and Jessica helped to make it happen. She and her staff made everything happen on schedule and so professionally. She had ever detail covered and thought of so much more than I ever would have though of on my own. She never frazzled and made me feel so at ease. Even when we hit a snafu the night before (of no fault of hers) she was right on it and solved the problem without an issue. She was very much in control, friendly and a dream to work with. I will be hiring her again and cant wait to do so! Jessica Kerns is amazing. If you get the change to consider her for your event, hire her! You will be very happy.

Ashley was the coordinator of a wedding in Sonoma that was contracted for as the musician. From the perspective of a hired gun outside the wedding party, Ashley communicated in a timely manner, was responsive to emails, and didn't hesitate to get a schedule for the big day to me well before the wedding date.

In person, she was warm, professional, and great to work with. This wedding in particular involved shuttle service and two venue changes, and she coordinated everything smoothly and exactly on time. When I arrived, everything was already set up for me and she really helped make the ceremony and reception go well.

Highly recommend her team's services.

Working with So Eventful happened by accident, but we are so thankful for the experience. With the employee turnover at the winery where our wedding was held, the winery hired So Eventful to help with the transition. Ashley Mauritson served mainly as our day-of coordinator, but for the few months we got to know her prior to the wedding, she helped make plenty of rental and design suggestions to help as much as possible! She was super responsive to all my emails and questions I had, and even met me in person over lunch to discuss the layouts and flow of the day.

On the wedding day, she adhered to our timeline as much as possible and kept everything running behind the scenes. Her confidence and demeanor helped put us at ease, and we knew she was in control of the day, and that everything would run smoothly.

I would not hesitate hiring Ashley and So Eventful as your planner!

Jennifer V. provided coordination for our daughter's wedding in Stockton. She was punctual, resourceful, efficient, creative, professional and FUN! Our wedding was in the backyard and, with Jennifer's assistance, it was transformed into a garden wonderland through the use of creative lighting, unique props, quality rentals, delicious local foods and wine,and over-the-top floral arrangements. She was a calm, yet firm, presence throughout the event and made sure everything, from opening toasts to final sparklers, came off without a hitch. I cannot say enough good things about Jennifer, So Eventful, and their work. I recommend them for any kind of event coordination, without exception.

My new wife and I thought we could plan our wedding ourselves and for the most part had all the major details figured out. It was all the small details that started to cause sleepless nights. That's when we contacted So Eventful and started working with Jennifer.
We could not have been happier with the experience. Jennifer was amazing and a true professional. She left no detail untouched and made us aware of all of the things we had never thought of. From our first meeting to our final dance she was there to assist us and take care of every little thing. She worked with all of our vendors to ensure we had absolutely nothing to worry about the day of our wedding and made the wedding flow perfectly with no issues.
We highly recommend So Eventful and Jennifer to anyone planning their wedding. Our only regret is not calling sooner. So Eventful and especially Jennifer are top notch!!!

I used Pilar from So Eventful for my May 31st Sonoma winery wedding. Both ceremony and reception were outdoors and we even had a 6-set music band. On the day of, I didn't have to deal with anything or any vendors because Pilar took care of it all. Up to the day of, she was so wonderful. She listened to me and provided great options for vendors but also knew when to push me when I was too indecisive. She was a great sounding board to all the little things and decisions involved in hosting a wedding weekend. I highly recommend Pilar from SoEventful

We were thrilled to have Pilar's help & coordination. Everything went so smoothly. She truly saw our vision and made it possible. She gave us wonderful suggestions & went above & beyond to make sure we were prepared & had everything we needed for the big day. She was wonderful at keeping us on our timeline & making sure we didn't miss anything. We didn't think we needed a wedding planner & were trying to do everything ourselves. After meeting Pilar by chance just a few months before the wedding I knew we couldn't do it with out her. She was a blessing & I'm so happy we met her & that she was available for our wedding day!

My wife and I had the fortune of working with Pilar from 'So Eventful'. Pilar was a pleasure to work with, from our initial meeting to our big day. Pilar was punctual, responsive, helpful (with vendor suggestions, wedding timeline, keeping our families on time, photographer relations, etc.), and above all else, cool and fun to work with. Pilar ensured that our wedding was a success, and kept the whole procession moving on-time, all-the-while maintaining her professionalism and charm.

My wife and I would wholeheartedly suggest Pilar to anyone considering wedding in Sonoma.

My day-of coordinator Marisa was AMAZING!
I know that every bride is suppose to be stressed, anxious and overwhelmed the day before the wedding but Marisa gave me so much comfort before the wedding that everything would go without issue, I slept like a rock the night before :)

Marisa is organized, detailed, listens to every small detail and overall lovely to work with. All my bridemaids raved about her!! And trust me, I had some eccentric wedding party ;)

I recommend Marisa to any bride-to-be. And a special kudos to my new husband who found Marisa on yelp. She definitely made my wedding day special and most importantly stress-free.

BIG THANK YOU, Marisa! :)

This review is far overdue, but not forgotten. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Rachel for day-of coordinating for our wedding in Healdsburg last September. Rachel made me feel taken care of and at ease in the final weeks of planning when I thought my head might explode with everything that needed to get finished. She was supportive of my ideas but also shared her expertise for how to make the day run smoothly. There was never a moment when I doubted her vision or suggestions. She was enthusiastic, confident, and really knew her stuff about wedding planning.

On the actual day of our entirely outdoor wedding, it rained! During the driest year of California on record, it actually rained (I'm told wet knots are harder to untie). We were supposed to have all 130 guests eat outside following the ceremony, but we made a decision, only 3 hours before the ceremony started, to move dinner into the barn. This was a feat of magic by Rachel. We lost 3 dinner tables with the move indoors and so the seating arrangements were thrown off. With complete grace under pressure, Rachel made it work, on time, without stressing me or the bridal party. The guests never knew the difference and seemed to think sitting in the barn had been the plan all along. I was later told that in all of the years of doing weddings at that venue, they had never fit more than 100 people in there. I still don't know how she did it, but I am eternally grateful that she pulled it off. I got to enjoy a perfect day with my husband.

I highly recommend Rachel's services and if she is any reflection of the company as a whole, then you will do well to have So Eventful for your wedding coordination.

Hiring Pilar and So Eventful was the best decision we made for our wedding. If you are looking for a planner in the Bay Area, we highly recommend them! We initially met Marisa via a referral from a business in Healdsburg when we were planning for a wedding there. When our plans changed to have everything in San Francisco, we liked Marisa and didn’t want to look any further. Pilar was part of her team, we met and knew we were dealing with a pro. Pilar was a professional all along, and super nice, accommodating and organized. She helped us put together the day of plan and ran everything perfectly. We had a tight schedule and she was there every step of the way, from getting ready to packing up the reception. She confirmed with the vendors along the way and day of made sure we were on schedule, ran the ceremony and rehearsal, orchestrated the reception, made sure we had food and drink (you’d be amazed how as bride and groom you don’t think of that!), and was incredibly nice throughout it all. So many of our guests commented how nice she was, how good she was. You can trust your event to So Eventful!

Planning a wedding from across the country forces you to put all of your trust in your coordinator and I had no problem doing so with Marisa. Her attention to me and to details was wonderful! Her and her business is very well received and respected in the wedding industry. I would recommend her in a heart beat to anyone in need of a day of coordinator. Thank you Marisa for helping Bobby and I have the wedding of our dreams and helping it go off without a hitch!

We had a great experience with Travis from So Eventful. He really helped us craft our vision into reality. He went above and beyond what the contract said he would do and was always available to answer questions and give an honest opinion. He reminded me that if there was something I wanted to happen, he would help figure out how to make it happen! He also went to our site and suggested a spiral ceremony seating arrangement instead of a straight aisle and it was perfect!

Marisa was key to our wedding going so smoothly. We had decided on having our wedding across the country and Marisa made it so easy. From shipping online purchases directly to her to running errands. SHe knew exactly what she was talking about and executed all of our desires. The morning of the wedding i found myself stress free with a beautiful message from her sharing that everything was being taken care of and and to enjoy the beautiful day. I can not thank her enough for the ability to ENJOY and have FUN at our wedding. If your looking for a calming, creative, energetic, flexible and fun to be around wedding planner Maris is the one for you!

Countless people who attended our wedding commented on how great you were! Your hard work did not go unnoticed and all of our vendors also appreciated how organized and efficient you were. I loved how on the day of I did not have to worry about a thing and if we needed anything you were there with a snap. You are truly a superstar wedding coordinator with a great attitude and an obvious passion for your work. Any bride would be lucky to have you coordinate her big day!

As a wedding professional myself it's not always easy to impress me with organizational skills, forward thinking and overall professionalism... but SO EVENTFUL does just that! My main motivation for hiring So Eventful was because I did not want to worry about a thing and I knew I could trust Marisa. She has amazing style and does everything with a smile! (Even when I asked her for the 101st favor that day!) ;p Marisa handled all of the vendor coordination with ease and grace. If anything went wrong that evening I never knew about it and in turn had the most fabulous, fun, relaxed and non-stressful day! Hire So Eventful coordination services and make your day SO much more enjoyable!

Marisa is an absolute magic worker! She helped me create my perfect wedding and brought all my ideas to life. She made everything possible with the budget I had. From the beginning she was always there to help and plan every detail and left no room for unexpected things to come about. On the weekend of the wedding she was there for everyone the entire time. She made the rehearsal quick and painless and efficient for the guys which was great! The day of the wedding I did not worry about a thing. She had everything undercontrol and beyond. She is so fun to work with and has the most upbeat personality that makes you want to plan another wedding to work with her. She made my wedding beautiful and flawless!

So Eventful was just okay. Nothing great about them to write about. I will say that while Marisa the owner of So -Eventful was not the greatest with communication. Her assistant Rachel really did a good job and went above and beyond to make my day fantastic.

This past weekend I had the honor or being a bridesmaid in my best friends wedding. This wedding was planned by Marisa Manna with so-eventful. Marisa planned this beautiful wedding and was also a bridesmaid. When I arrived at the hotel where the bridesmaids were getting ready the morning of the wedding the first thing  I noticed was how unbelievably calm Marisa, the bride, and the mother of bride were. Their calmness set the tone for the entire day allowing us all to enjoy the magical moments of the wedding rather then stressing about where we were supposed to be.  Marisa's  organization was so impeccable that even she could sit back, relax and also enjoy the day. I was always told that a  good boss is the one who can put his feet up on his desk because he's done his job. This is true for Marisa. She planned a beautiful day that ran smoothly and flawlessly and all of us in the wedding had a wonderful time.  The day was simply magical with incredible details that were unique to the bride and groom.  I would highly recommend so eventful to plan your wedding! It was a great pleasure to be part of this wedding and it was all because of the girl behind the scenes. I'm impressed with the way she made everyone in the wedding as well as the guests feel special. It was an all around fabulous day! Thank you So Eventful for giving my Friends the wedding of their dreams and for making our day stress free.

Marisa from So Eventful was fantastic to work with. She helped us plan our wedding from across the country. She provided excellent recommendations for vendors. But her real value was on the day of the event. She made everything flow so smoothly. We really felt like we were guests at our own wedding. We would hightly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or any kind of event.
