Marina is a true citizen of the world. Raised in New York and Geneva by Italian parents, she has traveled extensively and speaks four languages fluently. After graduating from Syracuse University, Marina started her public relations career with Donna Karan as Director of International Public Relations in Milan, Italy. That experience led her back to New York, where she became Director of Communications for Hermes USA. She then established her own public relations firm, 24/7 Communications, and traveled the world working with some of the most exclusive fashion brands. Her clients included Rene Caovilla, Alessandro dell'Acqua, Loro Piana, and Brioni. Never satisfied with the status quo, Marina also put her talents to work in an executive role at a Fortune 100 Financial Services company. But when the opportunity to start Marina Luri Events came about, she jumped at the chance and has never looked back.

Marina Luri Events has planned and produced social, corporate & non profit events throughout Europe & the United States for over 10 years. We are a hard working and enthusiastic group of creative people that love what they do. We have planned and produced events as small as an intimate wedding for two - to as large as a sit down dinner for 900 with a private concert by Andrea Bocelli. We have worked in venues such as the NY Metropolitan Museum of American Art, (where we produced a private concert by Beyoncé) – and the Central Park Zoo, (where we were entertained by Charlie the sea lion). Our overseas events include a party in a palazzo and a polo championship on a private island. We understand and appreciate the venues that we work in, the people that we work with and the team effort needed for an event to be successful. We also don’t give up until we have exhausted all possibilities. We work tirelessly to find solutions for our clients. Whether it’s transporting a wedding cake to the island of Capri or ushering VIPs on small boats through the narrow Venice waterways – no task is too small, no challenge too great.

what people are saying...

Marina is an amazingly efficient, organized person. Marina made our wedding a beautiful and effortless dream we will always cherish.
— Simona & Peter Stevens
My husband and I had less than 6 weeks to plan our wedding. We wanted to be married in our backyard at twilight. It was a very special night as Marina honored our parents by using our parents tallis’ to adorn the chuppah. We were overwhelmed with her idea and it gave us a very special place to exchange our vows. Marina created an atmosphere that was simple, elegant and flawless. It was an evening that our guests are still talking about
— Barbara & Ken Campbell
Thank God for Marina. In less than 15 weeks, she planned my 200 person plus wedding in East Hampton, soothed us during the stressful parts and rolled with the punches including a change in layout a month before the big day. She was so fun to work with I miss her now that I’ve gone back to my real life!
— Christina Lewis & Daniel Halpern
I brought Marina and her team in to coordinate my sister’s wedding. This was a second marriage for my sister and her future husband. Marina quickly accessed that the plan that we had in place would not work. She was extremely sensitive to budget issues but produced an extraordinary event. The bride and groom were so happy as were the guest who attended. Not sure what would have happened if I did not use Marina.
— Kathy
If you are looking for not just a wedding planner but someone who has the ability to really listen to your needs, and then implement them to perfection then you should consider Marina and her staff. I was leery as I had a previous experience that was not the best. The moment that I sat down with Marina, I knew that she would take the stress and worry off me and my family. She is someone who, simply put, just gets the job done. If there was any type of blip, I never knew - because everything she does is with grace.
