The company focuses on the brand management and consistency across all marketing efforts of luxury wedding, lifestyle, and event companies. Prior, Iovino was instrumental in the rebranding of Peak Event Services (formerly Peterson Party Center), now considered one of the largest, single-location party and event rental businesses in the country. She cut her teeth in the event management and hospitality industries at some of the biggest-name restaurants in Boston, including Jody Adam's acclaimed Rialto, Lydia Shire's award-winning Biba and Pignoli, and Jamie Mammano's celebrated Mistral.

Meet Marjorie Scarff, an Event Manager who joined the team back in this past year. She joined the team with five years of experience in the Boston events industry and nearly 10 years of experience in production and design.
Marjorie's passion for events developed from her love of theater, logistics, and spreadsheets. Art and design have been a part of her life since she was a little girl. The daughter of two photographers, she grew up with a camera in her hand and a darkroom in her basement. After developing her first photograph when she was five, she was hooked!
Marjorie has always been energetic and outgoing, and found a love of the stage as a kid, singing and dancing like her favorite power couple, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. It wasn't long until Marjorie found her way backstage and fell in love with Stage Management and theater design. In college, Marjorie pursued both passions, earning degrees in business, fine arts, and theatrical management and design.
After school, Marjorie pursued her passion in the arts, working as a stage manager at regional theaters throughout New England for 5 years. From there, she stumbled into the hospitality and event life and hasn't looked back!
Outside of work, Marjorie enjoys adventures outdoors and experiencing new places! One of her favorite places she's been is New Zealand, where she lived for a time in her early twenties. When not in the office, you'll probably find Marjorie enjoying a craft brew on the backroads of Vermont, soaking up some sun and salty air around Cape Cod, or discovering a new favorite secret spot in Boston.
