Melanie helped us out for months, making sure vendors and other suppliers were lined up for our private-property wedding, which required considerable planning and coordination. We were very happy with Melanie's service and commitment, and her cheerful personality, through the process. We also enjoyed working with Melanie because she is more calm, thoughtful, and personable than the typical Hampton's wedding planner.

Melanie had beautiful ideas for so many aspects of our wedding, and the right contacts and vendors to get the ideas implemented. Also, her vendor relationships got us excellent rates on many services. We appreciated that she worked hard and negotiated well to keep us within our budget. She spent countless hours thinking through the details and plans to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. She was available whenever we wanted to talk, and worked around our working schedules.

When the big day came, Melanie was positive and collected. She ensured that our plans came to life, and was ready with a back-up plan for the weather. She was very friendly to all of the guests. Her quick-thinking came in very handy when guests had unexpected requests. She made us feel like we could just relax and enjoy the night -- and we sure did!

Melanie is a wonderful, committed, and warm event planner, and we would highly recommend her.

From start to finish, Melanie was amazing!

Even if you give yourself plenty of time to just a few months, there is so much to do, big, small and last minute items. We had our wedding in locations we knew nothing about (Flushing/Oyster Bay). Melanie was on the ball with all the vendors, gave great suggestions, advice, and we saved us tons of money using her as she negotiated for us, and kept them on track.

She was ready to deal with my crazy MOH, and got hair/makeup and photographer to come early for a Tea Ceremony we planned last minute, and moved again! She was able to flawlessly find a solution to the restaurant (our reception venue) who just lost their liquor license! She got my guests dancing. My wedding was so much fun! With a 160 guest wedding with 4 months to put together, The word "stress" and "I am" was never once in the same sentence.

And even speaking to my wedding party, relatives, and about 20 other guests who interacted with her, they were floored about how great she was, and was vying to use her for future events.

She is super nice, professional, polite, classy, funny, and savvy. A definitely must. And even if you think eh, I can save the money, with using Melanie's services, you will wind up saving so much more (and actual enjoy your wedding)!

Thanks so much, Melanie!

M.A. Occasion Planners is the best. They went above and beyond excellence. Any little thing that my wife and I needed Melanie and Darcell took care of it. With them we felt very confident that our big day would be great. Our wedding was amazing because of them. I can't thank M.A. occasion planners enough for their help and our amazing honeymoon package to Hawaii. We received a honeymoon room upgrade thanks to M.A. occasion planners.
Thanks, M.A. occasional planners
Sincerely,
Peter

What a dream it was to work with a professional like Melanie Alvarez as our wedding planner. She loves what she does so much and it is truly reflected in her work. She is professional, but very personable when dealing with our desires and we appreciate every detail! Thank you for your encouragement and support through the entire process and for most thank you for being my "wedding angel." Anyone considering a wedding planner need look no farther than M.A. Occasion Planners.

Yours Truly,

The crew at M.A. Occasion Planners helped me out so much for my wedding. Working a full time job and planning a wedding is nerve wrecking especially when you run your own business. Melanie was so organized that it made it easier to trust her with our big day. Thank God for m.a. occasion planners who helped me throughout the whole thing. What I liked best was having them focused on what me and my husband wanted. They make you feel very comfortable like you've known them forever. They were able to help me get my fairy tale wedding! I still use them for my social and business events.

Thanks Melanie & Crew!!!
