WHO WE ARE:
Make it Mariko (pronounced mah-ri-ko) is a Bay Area event production company focused on creating magical, meaningful, and unforgettable moments.
Moments that make you feel, make you cry, make you laugh, give you perspective on life; moments that you’ll remember forever. We focus on weddings, nonprofit & arts events in the San Francisco Bay Area.
WHAT WE STAND FOR:
My family has a motto:
“to da dit”
(literally “to the death” said in a Filipino accent)
It started off as a saying the cousins learned from our uncles; our version of “Cheers!” that we’d say before taking shots at family parties. It was a fun phrase to get the party started as we pledged to drink “to the death”. But after my cousin only 3 months younger than me passed away tragically in 2011 and then my uncle in 2014, the meaning changed drastically for our entire family. “To da dit” became something more real — a mantra reminding us to never forget how precious our lives are, to appreciate every single day, and most importantly, to appreciate each other.
Family and love is everything. Life can be cut short at any moment, and you never know when, or how. The moments we create with each other are what matter the most, and are what we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.
That’s why our goal at Make it Mariko is to create magical, meaningful, and unforgettable moments for you, your family, your community, and your loved ones. Moments worth remembering “to da dit” and beyond.
