More About Maggie Joos, Owner and Creator

2013 Headshot Maggie JoosMuch to my surprise, I actually finished this project and ended up with gorgeous pieces that not only made it through the day, but will last a lifetime. It’s vintage, but modern. Elegant, but ME. It has a great story, just like all the important things in my life.Ever since I was little, I’ve loved starting creative projects. No, not doing creative projects, but starting. I had a great collection of beads, scrapbook paper and a half-finished crochet rug that came with me to college, but not much to show for it. That said, when my mom offered me her veil for my wedding, the stars aligned. Knowing that the piece was a bit touched by age and not quite my style, we excitedly discussed using it to build the flowers of my bouquet and the items worn by the bridal party.

As an event planner with over 12 years in the nonprofit, corporate and association markets, I know that while you need to get the big things right, it’s the details of every experience that offer meaning and polish. Through Mark the Occasion Designs, I’ve melded my business acumen, my event planning expertise and my creativity into a business that brings delight both to me and my customers. What could be better than that?
