Moir + Maris
It's been booming at the Maris headquarters: we are happy to announce the joining of Moir & Co. and Maris Events. Bellingham based Moir and Co. has been rocking the north end wedding scene since 2010. Jessica, the company founder, has just moved to Virginia with her family and kindly asked us to carry the torch. Being that they are a great fit aesthetically and ethically, we gladly accepted! In doing so, we added one more seasoned planner to our crew. Happy days! We wish Jessica and her family a marvellous journey in their new home in Fredericksburg, and welcome the Moir & Co. folks to the Maris family.
Meet Our NewEst Planners
Heather comes to to us, from Moir and Co., with over eleven years in events. Several of those years as a catering sales manager for popular hotels such as the DoubleTree Grand Key Resort and Bellingham’s Hotel Bellwether. In these roles, she was responsible for scheduling and coordinating all aspects of highly detailed meetings and events of both personal and corporate nature. She may be a Canuck (Ontario) by birth, but Heather has called Washington State home for the last 17 years and lives in Bellingham with her firefighter husband and two little humans. When not planning weddings or herding the children to activities, you can find Heather at the gym, skiing Mt. Baker, hanging out by the lake or pool with family and friends, and cooking nutritious meals that the kids probably won't eat.
Priya has a breadth of experience in productions and events. Beyond assisting the Maris team for the last 4 seasons, she has also managed events at Seattle's Century Ballroom throughout the last 5 years. In addition to her professional dossier, Priya is a dancer and photographer which has lead to her spearheading a vast array of creative projects and productions. Her work ethic, creativity and compassion are a real boon for our team and clients. Like a salmon returning to her place of birth, Priya now resides in the Pacific Northwest after years in the tropical climes of Hawaii and Southern India. When not working, she can be found thrifting for vintage apparel for her next Wes Anderson-esk styled photo shoot, sipping a craft cocktail on Capitol Hill before sashaying on the dance floor (you name it, she dances it!), or meeting up with friends for espresso and sketching.
HERE'S TO A FABULOUS 2016 SEASON...
