What do you like best about your job?
I love all of the different ideas that brides come up with, and how every wedding is unique.


Favorite memory from a Lionsgate event:
Ceremony when the groom presented the bride's 5-year-old daughter with a neclakce to show he was committing his life to her too. I cried my eyes out because I could totally relate, as my son was also 5 when I got remarried to the best guy in the whole world.

A word of advice for those planning an event:
Don't go crazy and feel that you have to have everything and every idea in your wedding. Come up with a concept for your wedding and STICK TO IT - no matter what! If each decision you makes fits into your "concept" it will work overall for a unified and beautiful wedding. Oh yeah, and hire the best vendors you can possibly afford who can see your vision.


What would you do if you won the lottery?
I would give some to each of our amazing employees.

                                                                  What do you most enjoy doing on a day offMarie Jenkinson near blue dog mural?
Working in my Brooch Bouquet studio (while watching cheesy Science Fiction movies) making custom brooch bouquets for brides all around the world.  It's my happy place.

Not so sure if it is very "hidden" but I recently discovered I'm pretty good at painting large wall murals.


What is the number one thing you'd like to accomplish/do/see in your life?
Having our wedding facility business on a reality TV show… we are really entertaining.
