Meet The Cotton Company Event Staff

The Cotton Company provides a dedicated staff member for each special event booked in The Event Gallery.  We uphold the highest standard of honesty and strive to provide a unique and delightful experience for each guest who attends your event.  Our Event Staff is on site to check in with all outside vendors and to make sure your event starts off on the right foot.   Then by greeting your guests at the door we provide a personal touch to the already wonderful small town experience that is naturally found in Wake Forest’s Historic Downtown.  At the end of the night our Event Staff is on hand to check out with catering and other event vendors.  Also, you should provide a Client Contact who will personally check out for the whole group before our Event Staff can close the Event Space making sure your personal belongings have been removed as planned.


Marissa DeMarco, Event Director


Your experience begins with a booking consultation and planning meeting with our Event Director.  Marissa has been working at The Cotton Company as the Event’s Director since 2015.  Expect a personal touch and candid advice on everything from typical floor plans and event timelines to finding quality local vendors.  Marissa is also a wedding photographer so she really knows how to handle all aspects of your big day.  She consults with the assigned staff before each event to make sure all of your event details are clear and that you receive the best possible assistance during your event.

To set up your private tour of The Event Gallery with Marissa, please call or email: for our next available time slot.  We do not offer tours during active events so please do not drop by on a Saturday just to “check it out.”
