My wife and I hired Melanie as both the organizer and officiant of our wedding. I will admit at first I was a little trepidatious at the need for an organizer of our wedding. In all seriousness, it was the best thing we spent money on.

I was unfortunately abroad during the wedding planning, leaving most of the wedding to my wife. Thankfully Melanie kept us on point during the entire process, all within budget. She told us when things would need to be completed by and never let anything slip through the cracks. One of the best parts from the planning perspective was that she was always an email or phone call away. Our wedding planning quickly turned into, let's just ask Melanie to make sure, and having her experience was invaluable.

One of the main reasons we used Melanie was because we didn’t want to worry about the day of wedding set up. Our wedding day I literally sat by the pool at the hotel, completely stress free as she ran the show. When I finally was getting ready for the wedding and my tuxedo shirt holes were too small for the studs the first person I asked for was Melanie. She quickly tracked down scissors and literally cut the holes in my shirt just a smidge larger so they would fit!

As an officiant Melanie was truly above and beyond. She worked with my wife and I in creating a service that fit who we were completely. She was extremely flexible and really focused on making it about my wife and I. You know the officiant was outstanding when other people in the industry, like our photographer, can’t stop complimenting how well she did.

When friends ask us for advice in planning their own wedding the first thing I say is to hire Melanie. She truly made our wedding the amazing day it was and I could never thank her enough. To really have the perfect wedding you need a professional who has seen it all, can handle any situation and cares about who you are. Melanie truly embodies all of these and is the reason why our wedding was such a success.

I am so happy we found Melanie to help us with my daughter's wedding. She was 100% on top of everything during the planning stages and always very responsive to questions or concerns. On the day of the wedding she worked tirelessly to make sure everything went smoothly, freeing us up to enjoy the day. We could not have had the wedding of my daughter's dreams without her. If you want peace of mind through the wedding process, I would strongly recommend that you choose Melanie to guide you. She is an expert and worth every penny!!

Blissful Beginnings planned our perfect summer wedding. Melanie was a dream to work with! You can feel how experienced she is when you first meet her and how eager she is to plan the perfect wedding for you. She always responded to our messages within 24 hours (if not immediately), and was always willing to meet up with us given short notice. I have zero experience with weddings since I am the first in my family and out of my friends to get married. Melanie came with me to vendor meetings and helped me figure out what I wanted my wedding to look like and how we were going to do it. When we were planning my wedding I almost had no free time. I was nearing the end of my doctorate program, interviewing for jobs, and studying for my board exams. I don't think I could've survived without Melanie! When our wedding day arrived, I didn't have to worry about anything because Melanie had everything covered. I just woke up, ate breakfast and got married. Thank you again to Melanie at Blissful Beginnings!

Melanie was already booked for our wedding date by the time I reached out to her, but she remained in constant communication with me throughout the whole process, attending all meetings and providing valuable insight when needed. Jenny did an outstanding job in her absence on the day of, between officiating and managing the vendors. We had a ridiculous situation with our caterer that day, and Jenny handled it without me or my husband being any the wiser. When I look back on my wedding day, I'm so glad that Blissful Beginnings was a part of it!

Melanie is amazing!! I worked with her over 2 years to plan my 200+ outdoor wedding. She was so professional and helpful through the process. She eased my mind with my many questions and always had great suggestions for our special day. She helped me with menus, rental orders, timelines, contacting other vendors, etc. The day of the wedding everything went so smooth and it was because of Melanie. There were several vendors to coordinate and everything went off without a hitch! My husband, families and I are SO happy with how everything turned out and it was truly because of Melanie's hard work and attention to detail. I highly recommend working with Melanie, she will make your special day even more perfect than you could have imagined.

Melanie was the best referral I could have ever received. She worked on our daughter's wedding which was a destination wedding for us as well as the rehearsal dinner. From our first meeting to the wedding day, Melanie was always there for us. I was able to completely enjoy and relax at my daughter's wedding which was exactly what I wanted to do. She provided us with lots of great vendor referrals and many ways to optimize our budget. Each vendor was TERRIFIC and her relationships with them were so helpful in ensuring a great event. She spent many hours working with my daughter, her husband , my husband and me in answering our questions and ensuring we would have a spectacular event. Comments from our guests were--Magical, WOW, best wedding ever been to, everything was perfect, your planner was there offering us an umbrella at the rehearsal dinner and couldn't have been nicer, etc. etc. I can't say enough good things about Melanie. My only regret after the wedding was that I wouldn't be able to be in constant contact with Melanie any more. I truly value the relationship that we developed during the last year and am planning to stay in touch with her. I would highly recommend her for any event you are planning.
