Marquita’s love for event planning was sparked when she began co-creating large scale fashion shows during college. The experience and confidence she gained led to her planning and executing her own successful show. Seeing the looks she customized coming down the runway was worth all the research, organizing, and stress. As a result, Marquita Rugless founded R.O.C. Events. What began as a dream quickly became a passion that has led to over fourteen (14) years in event planning and design.
Marquita’s artistry is set apart by her signature technique and specialty in creative balloon design. The ability to craft vibrant looks, not only for her venue, The Party Suite (www.ThePartySuite.co) but for any space or occasion, has made R.O.C. Events highly sought after in the industry. Her experience, professionalism, eye for design, and love of transforming simple spaces into statement-making events are definitely inspired and inspiring. But Marquita not only designs event spaces; she offers much more. From custom displays to personalized gifts for special moments, she has developed a roster of services suitable for nearly any occasion.
As a wife and mother of twin toddlers, Marquita has left nothing undone in reaching for her dreams and living a full life. Her love for travel to tropical places, and homebody routines like online shopping and binge-watching cop and hospital dramas, leave her refreshed and open to receive the inspiration she needs. She explains, “I can find inspiration anywhere! I can look at a plate of food and be inspired by the colors. My mind works like that and I’m grateful for that skill.”
The balance she has created in her life provides the motivation she needs to supply her community with designs they will love forever. But she doesn’t believe that the success she has found is unique to her. Instead, she believes that others in the industry can have the same. Because of this, she teaches and mentors whenever she can. Her advice: Just don’t stop. The next step could be your win.
