Meet Raquel | Co-founder of Marquel Events

Hi there! I'm Raquel Babcock, your ultimate event planner extraordinaire! With over two decades of experience crafting unforgettable moments, I'm here to turn your wedding dreams, special event or corporate party into a reality.


As the co-founder of MarQuel's, I'm committed to adding a touch of magic and joy to your special day. My journey in the events industry began in high school, continued with designing my own wedding, and expanded to include work with nonprofits, corporate companies, weddings and network groups across Seattle, where I mastered every aspect of event planning.


Currently, I serve as the Hospitality and Events Manager for a leading senior housing provider, organizing spectacular corporate events, retreats, and conferences nationwide. My enthusiastic personality, coupled with meticulous attention to detail, ensures a seamless and joyful experience from start to finish. Recognized by industry leaders and armed with a CMP certification, I'm here to bring your vision to life. Let's collaborate to create an unforgettable masterpiece with MarQuel's by your side!

our clients love us


"Words cannot describe how thankful we are for Raquel and Mark! They went above and beyond throughout every step of the Wedding Planning process. From venue walk-throughs and bringing design ideas to life, to catering tastings and contract reviews, timeline creation and reminders – I knew we were in good hands.

Although I would consider myself organized, there’s no way wedding planning could have turned out this smooth and stress free without Raquel. Not to mention, I am not the most creative person when it comes to decorations…That is one big area of the planning process I knew I lacked, and she knocked everything out of the park! From the photo backdrop to the table center pieces, and even uplighting for our ceremony stage, I am beyond grateful we had her expertise and vision."

This is your event and YOU are the center of attention (note the peacock in our logo). We recognize you have a dream or vision but may not be able to get from point A to B. You either don't have time or need help with the overload of details! You want someone who has experience, creativity, can handle the budget and handle the occasional moments when stress and emotion take over.


MarQuel's Events and Experiences is here to serve you!
