"We recently hired Melissa to be a day of coordinator for our daughter's wedding. We met with her to review what we were looking for. We wanted someone to help with a timeline of events, coordinating vendors, which included photographer, videographer, flower delivery, signing into the hotel, makeup and hair stylists and of course our trolley rides to take us from the hotel to the church. We can not thank her enough as she took on this challenge with such confidence and ease that we wondered how did one person actually pull this off so smoothly. In addition to the timeline, she was helpful with last minute panics, helped the groomsmen tie the ties, lint brush everyone, ordered morning snacks and kept the bride calm. She even brought props in for the hotel bridal shoot, who other than Melissa would remember to bring antique hair brushes, ring trays, and hand help mirror. Traffic was crazy that day, but our guests and the wedding party were all ready on time, in the trolleys, and off to the church, 'Getting to the Church on time'. Saying thank you just does not seem enough. As someone who, in the beginning stages of planning didn't really think we needed a coordinator, how wrong were we. Trust me, you need this. There were things we didn't even know that we needed to know. The whole experience was so calming as we only needed to relax and enjoy such a special say."

"We hired Melissa to plan our daughter‘s shower. Melissa went above and beyond to plan and execute everything! She suggested the venue & worked with their event planner to design the perfect day. Melissa also worked closely with the caterer. Two weeks before the date of the event, the venue broke ties with their caterer. Melissa worked with the new caterer to create a menu, and made me feel at ease as we got closer to the event date. She helped me negotiate contracts with each vendor. Melissa was extremely organized, providing a timeline to us. She provided games and fun activities. On the day of the shower, Melissa and her team arrived with all of the vintage silverware, beautiful mimosa cart and the most amazing dessert station, everything laid out perfectly. She supervised behind the scenes and kept activities moving smoothly. She made us feel as though we were guests at our own event, it was a beautiful day!"
"Melissa was an amazing planner and helped me to have the wedding I've always dreamed of having! The idea of planning a wedding was very overwhelming to me and Melissa, from the very beginning, helped to keep me calm and helped me make decisions that all culminated with a beautiful, elegant wedding. I had a hard time picturing what I wanted, and Melissa began by helping me come up with ideas that would fit with my general theme. I gave her colors and a feeling, and she turned that into beautiful ideas. She created slides for me to look at with visuals to help me better picture what I wanted. Once I picked a style that fit me and my fiancé, she accompanied me to appointments, per my request, to really help make my ideas a reality. She was direct with the vendors, explaining exactly what I wanted and bringing photos to help make sure that no one misunderstood. She has an eye for detail, thinking of elegant touches to bring everything together. She brainstormed with me. Her large inventory really gave me an assortment of rentals to choose from, we picked two beautiful chairs to use for our sweetheart table, really bringing everything together. On the day of the wedding, she helped guide the photographer to capture each detail, something I would have overlooked! She oversaw the setup and made sure that all of my special touches were laid out. She even helped me get dressed! Melissa’s drive and dedication shows through her work, she is the only one I would trust with any event!"

"My husband & I cannot express in words how much Melissa truly made our day, wedding reception, and bridal shower. Melissa went out of her way to plan and coordinate both events. I gave Melissa a few ideas that I liked and she made everything come together so smoothly. Throughout the whole process she was extremely professional and caring I could always contact her regardless of the time or matter. If I saw something on Pinterest she made it happen! Melissa also planned my bridal shower flawlessly and stress free. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch planner!"

"Melissa's ability to transform events is amazing! At a baby shower she planned for me, she put her creative touches on each aspect of the party and thought of so many things that wouldn't even occur to me. Everything she did was adorable with a touch of class at the same time - I'm still not sure how she accomplished that so beautifully. Her demeanor is so sweet and easy going, and she's an absolute pleasure to work with. She's my go-to girl!"
