A wedding should be known as the most memorable time of two people’s lives, and for us on August 2nd, 2014 it was, with the help and guidance of Melissa Hsu and her team. Melissa took the time and efforts to relinquish every detail that made this day so special for Kenny and I. Her organizational skills were impeccable, which took a lot of pressure and stress off of me when there were numerous other matters to be tended to. Melissa took the time to meet with us on numerous occasions before the wedding, and making herself available day or night without hesitation. Every text, email and/or phone call was either answered or returned almost immediately. Her easy going attitude and attention to detail is strongly noted, as it created a sense of relief to both of us with each meeting. Melissa's caring embrace and demeanor along with her amazing sense of creativity made each day eventful and successful. The day of our wedding, she took the time to make sure that every detail was presented in the most perfect way and in no way could we have ever asked for a better day. This recommendation has not even began to show the appreciation that both Kenny and I have for Melissa's services, and I would be more than willing to speak to anyone on Melissa's behalf as a recommendation for one of the most cherished days of both of our lives. Melissa, thank you again for everything!

What an absolute pleasure it was to work with Melissa, Cecilia, and Lauren!

Initially, my (now) husband and I had our reservations about wedding coordination, but after sitting down with Mel and Cecilia for a detailed consultation via Skype, I knew right away it'd be a perfect fit. Their professional yet personalized approach to coordination set them apart from others I had interviewed, and their execution of services was flawless. They're also super likable and easy to talk to -- very important traits you'll want in your coordinator!

They went far and beyond what we had expected, both during the planning process and on the wedding day. Mel and Cecilia looked out for us in ways we'll never be able to thank them for, and both my husband and I recommend them without any reservation! Thank you again for everything! xo

Elsa and Melissa were simply amazing! Hiring these wonderful ladies to help coordinate my wedding was the best decision my husband and I have made for the wedding. They were professional, knowledgeable, attentive, friendly, kind; the list can go on and on. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to have them there throughout the whole preparation; they made the process so much easier for me.

Thank you ME Weddings & Events, not only did I have a beautiful wedding but I have also made two new friends. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family.

Elsa was friendly, professional, efficient and super organized. She was the mastermind of all the planning. Considering that our wedding was in California, I was in Maui and my husband was working in Canada, she was the sole person that bridged everyone in planning the wedding. We could not have a had such a fabulous wedding without her. She's creative and offered a lot of ideas for our wedding. Elsa has several connections and she has an excellent relationship with them. All the vendors that know her, only have positive comments about her. She is a great listener and always considered what we had to day. Furthermore she helped us stay within our budget.
During the wedding, she was very discreet and made sure everything flowed smoothly. The guests always commented on how well planned out our day was. I couldn't take the credit and I told them that it was all because of my wedding planner. They couldn't believe it, because they didn't even notice that she was there. She was attentive and always made sure that we had enough to eat and time to rest. Before the end of the night, she and her team already had everything packed up and delivered to the bridal suite.
Elsa sets an example for person that truly enjoys their career. Her company (shared with Melissa) has a foundation built from a lot of dedication, creativity and kindness. She just doesn't do her job and the minimal requirements. Elsa offers extensions of one's ideas and always aims to make things better. Elsa always gives her 110% effort and that is why my husband and I are truly grateful to have worked with her.

ME weddings truly made my wedding day the best day of my life. With their careful attention to scheduling, excellent vendor recommendations, and knowledge and understanding of my venue, the day was perfect. I met and communicated with Elsa throughout the planning process and she was able to guide me in making so many decisions that would work best for what I envisioned for my wedding. There are so many factors that make your wedding day special for you, your husband, your wedding party, your family, and all your friends. With her help I was able to create a day that was more than I could have ever dreamed.

My husband's quote, "She's awesome. At first I felt a planner was probably something we didn't really need. But in the end it was the best decision. (Besides marrying my wife)"

Haha! Honestly, ME weddings will do whatever it takes to make your wedding day worry free. You will be able to enjoy every single minute of that day. I highly recommend hiring ME weddings!

What a pleasure working with the ME Events team! From start to finish I felt like everything was taken care of. Whenever I had a doubt or a worry I felt instantly calmed by the team and knowing that they were always one step ahead. They helped us find our vendors and for prices that we could not have gotten if we had searched on our own. Even in the final moments before our wedding they were able to accommodate to every last minute change and specification I had requested. I thought that planning a 250 guest wedding would be a headache, but it was incredibly easy with the ME Events team. They were able to give us suggestions and we trusted them because of their experience and great sense of wedding style. I would highly recommend you get a planner even if you think you want to save money and try to do it on your own. It will save you lots of time,stress, money and allow you to enjoy your wedding day to the fullest!

We hired ME Weddings & Events for our wedding this past March 9, 2013 and we can't say enough good things about them.

My then-fiancee had long dreamed of her perfect wedding and had very specific things and preferences she wanted for the wedding while I simply wanted a special day that would come in at a reasonable budget with minimal headaches and hassles. Looking back, we never would have been able to satisfy both of our criteria without the outside help of ME Weddings & Events.

While I can certainly sympathize with folks out there that want to skimp on or completely skip hiring a wedding planner, I can confidently say that hiring a wedding planner and hiring ME Weddings and Events, in particular, was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process.

They brought a level of organization, professionalism and experience that far surpassed what we expected.

Their organization helped remove as much stress as possible from the process and was essential to keeping the process on track. My work keeps me very busy at work (often working late nights and weekends) and so a large part of the planning burden landed on my wife's shoulders. It was a huge weight off of her shoulders to have the awesome pros at ME Weddings to guide us through the process and keep us (read: me) accountable.

Their knowledge of local vendors was instrumental in helping us pick vendors that we were very happy with. Their existing relationships with the same local vendors were an invaluable asset in helping us feel comfortable we were getting good deals/prices.

Finally, not only are they professional, organized, experienced and well-connected, but Melissa and Elsa (and their team) are just great people that were an absolute pleasure to work with. They know exactly how to toe the line of making critical and helpful suggestions while still respecting our (read: my wife's) sometimes quirky and highly specific wants.

They're the best and worth every penny!!

If you are looking for a wedding planner, go with them. They are THEE best! I work full time and it was very hard for me to get everything organized and together, but it really felt so smooth and easy with their help. They make sure you don't forget a thing and makes sure you get the wedding you want! They will go out of their way to help you find the perfect vendors! Both planners were so nice and easy to work with. I highly recommend their services!

Melissa Phua and Elsa Feng of ME Events. Wow. There is nothing can say or do to describe how amazing of a job these two have done for my wife and I. They have truly gone above and beyond to make our day a memory that we will never forget.
Going back to the beginning, my wife was not around to assist me with this large task of, plan my perfect wedding. It was then when I found Me-Events. I have seen a portfolio of their work and have decided this was just for me.
After our first meeting, I was sold. They were knowledgeable, thoughtful and most importantly I felt they really knew how to tailor to different people and different styles. It was that simple. I expressed my concerns with budget and style, and they knew right away which vendors to look into and which would best suite us.
Our wedding turned out better than we could have imagined and better. Through their experience and attention to detail, they took our main points, and expanded and tailored everything into a style that fit my wife and me. I have received countless compliments explaining how impressed they were with how well “I” planned this wedding etc.… however; the real credit goes to Melissa and Elsa. I just wrote checks and signed paper work.
Thank you so much you two for making our day perfect!


我來自海外,在我婚禮的前一個月才到美國,根本沒時間和經驗來籌備在美國的婚禮,在我向Me Event 形容我夢想中的婚禮之後,Me Event 幫我策劃了一個非常華麗,人人稱羨的夢幻婚禮。我們有浪漫的儀式,完美的場地,如畫一般的一天;我們很喜歡Me Event所有的流程安排。謝謝她們把婚禮的麻煩瑣事都處理掉,幫了我們很大的忙,她們精心挑選的Live Band,古典樂團,...等等,都讓我們非常滿意。另外,還貼心的找到一個也會說中文的主持人;婚禮有她們真的讓我們輕鬆不少。
Me Event,謝謝妳們~

When I first started planning for my wedding, I knew I wanted Elsa and her expertise for the special day. I knew her from one of my close friends' wedding. Needless to say, my friend's wedding turned out absolutely beautiful. I chose the "Final Touches" package from the three they offered. It included coverage for the day of plus all the planning necessary one month prior to my wedding date, including taking over correspondence with all vendors and putting together all checklists and items. But as soon as after our consultation meeting, which took place shortly after we decided on the wedding date, Elsa was already helping us by giving us recommendations on vendors and providing us with advice that we needed. She made my fiance and I feel very comfortable and reassured that everything will turn out well with the wedding. It was a great relief and feeling that there was someone we could rely on for what was going to become the best day of our lives. All throughout the planning process, Elsa was very prompt at responding to us. She was helpful, efficient, and very personable. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner. She and her partner, Melissa, took charge and took care of EVERYTHING on the wedding day. It was so nice because I knew I wouldn't and didn't have to worry about anything at all. We had the most amazing time on our wedding day and couldn't be happier. Elsa, Brian and I can't thank you enough for all your help. We couldn't have done it without you!!!!

She made my fiance and I feel very comfortable and reassured that everything will turn out well with the wedding. It was a great relief and feeling that there was someone we could rely on for what was going to become the best day of our lives. All throughout the planning process, Elsa was very prompt at responding to us. She was helpful, efficient, and very personable. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner. She and her partner, Melissa, took charge and took care of EVERYTHING on the wedding day. It was so nice because I knew I wouldn't and didn't have to worry about anything at all. We had the most amazing time on our wedding day and couldn't be happier. Elsa, Brian and I can't thank you enough for all your help. We couldn't have done it without you!!!! Read less

Melissa and Elsa did a fantastic job! Right from the first meeting, Melissa and Elsa were extremely professional and attentive. All of my correspondence was through Melissa. She responded very promptly and answered all questions and concerns my husband and I had. We probably had to have exchanged 100+ emails throughout the planning process. Melissa provided an extensive list of recommendations for vendors from photography, cinematography, to hair and makeup, and lighting. My husband and I chose our vendors based off of Melissa's recommendations and we couldn't have been happier with our entire vendor team. Melissa took the reigns about a month before the wedding and confirmed all of our vendors and coordinated with our venue to finalize details. I couldn't have been more confident in Melissa's expertise and organization. I knew my husband and I were in good hands. On the day of the wedding, Melissa, Elsa and their team were key. From setting up and designing our reception area to coordinating when and where everyone was suppose to be.. the list goes on. My husband and I received so many compliments from our guests on how smoothly the day went and how amazingly beautiful our setup turned out. We were able to truly enjoy the day and not "sweat the small things" thanks to these ladies. Melissa and Elsa went above and beyond from start to finish. We can't thank them enough for the amazing job they did for us!

By far, the best hiring decision we made while planning our wedding! Working with Melissa and Elsa felt was great! They were so organized and responsive. (I actually had to ask Melissa if she ever slept because it felt as if she was online 24/7)!

Absolutely a pleasure to work with....

These ladies know what they are doing!

My (now husband) and I were married in early September in San Clemente, CA and Melissa of ME Events (along with Elsa of course) provided wedding coordination services. We can't say enough positive things about how much help these lovely ladies were with making our big day a success. My husband and I live in San Francisco, so many arrangements for the wedding were made over email and phone - a bit of a challenge for me as I am very organized and like to feel very on top of everything. Although we only hired Melissa for a "month of" coordination package, she went so far above and beyond - always answering my emails many months ahead of the wedding, sharing numerous referrals (basically how we found each member of our awesome vendor team) and just serving as a constant sounding board. The week of the wedding, Melissa took care of everything, confirming vendors, scheduling everyone's arrivals, helping me remember what payments I still needed to make, the list goes on. And of course on the day of the wedding, Melissa and Elsa were invaluable, taking care of everything so that as far I was aware it all went perfectly! We had many guests tell us that they had never been to a more well-planned wedding, that everything went so smoothly and never felt rushed - I couldn't have asked for a better compliment, and owe so much of the thanks to ME Events.

I worked mainly with Melissa during the planning process but we had the pleasure of having Elsa, Melissa and their 2 assistants on our wedding day. From the beginning, we were impressed by Melissa's responsiveness and quality of responses. She answered all of my emails right away and gave long, thoughtful responses to my questions and concerns. Even when she was away on her honeymoon, she made sure that Elsa was tending to our matters so that our questions were always addressed!

I am such an indecisive bride so having Melissa was a godsend. Anytime I was unsure or had NO clue on what to do, I would shoot Melissa an email and she would respond back with lots of ideas. She also recommended some great vendors. Since Melissa was so professional, I felt like if Melissa trusted them, I could trust them. She was always punctual to meetings and gave valuable input-I was so happy to have her by my side to provide great ideas that I would never have imagined.

I had so many last minute changes and mishaps occur and it would have been easy to panic but Melissa took care of EVERYTHING and executed even better than I would have myself. I was able to stay calm because Melissa always addressed my worries with "Don't worry about it" as she took care of them.

My now-husband and I are so happy that we contracted Melissa’s services. One of my bridesmaids told us how she was impressed with how well the events of that night flowed together. Overcoming all of the mishaps I created, Melissa and her team were able to execute the wedding day details flawlessly and the whole day flowed like a dream. Thank you to Melissa, Elsa, and your team for coordinating the wedding so well so that my husband and I could just enjoy our day! We love you girls so much!

They are amazing! Most of my correspondence was with Elsa but both Elsa and Melissa are so nice and wonderful to work with! Elsa was quick with the e-mails, sent great referrals, gave great advice and was extremely organized! I have no idea how she can remember all the details for each wedding when I could barely remember details of just my own wedding. On the day of, everything went down perfectly (at least as far we could tell, which is the way it should be!). My husband and I, and our wedding party and family, were able to fully enjoy ourselves.

Too bad the max rating I can give is 5.0 ... if I could, I would give ME Events & Design a 10++++++!!!! I am soosososososo beyond thankful that I had ME Events & Design as our wedding coordinators ... Melissa and Elsa are such an awesome duo ... they work so well together ... and work even better with their clients. They really care about making your special day EXTRA special ... and will really work with you to make your wedding day what you want it to be plus more! Starting from our initial consultation all the way up to our wedding, I was thoroughly impressed with Melissa & Elsa's professionalism and enthusiasm.
I just asked my husband to describe Melissa & Elsa and he (being the huge football fanatic that he is) said "They are like the a quaterback of a team because they direct the "offense" (church, photographer, videographer, caterers) by making sure everything goes smoothly and that everyone does their job." He couldn't have said it better :)
Melissa and Elsa are super prompt, whether it be replying to emails, showing up to the rehearsal, any meetings, the actual wedding day!!!!, etc ... super friendly ... super organized ... and that is a huge compliment coming from someone who i pretty OCD. They really know what they are doing. They made our wedding day seamless ... you always hear horror stories or snafus from brides of what went wrong at their wedding ... I'm sure there were things that were not going as planned but for all I know, it never happened because Melissa & Elsa took care of everything. All I had to worry about was where to be and at what time. In other words - I ACTUALLY GOT TO ENJOY MY WEDDING!!! Thank you so much Melissa & Elsa. We are so grateful for everything they did for us ... couldn't have asked for a better wedding coordinator!!!

ME events was more than we could have ever expected. We mostly dealt with Elsa prior to the wedding. However, the whole team was awesome. They worked together very well and our special day was seamless. Each person on the team knew what the plan was and did things before we asked them.

QUALITY:
ME events has incredibly high quality and good taste. All the vendors they recommended were awesome in delivering their product. Elsa was able visualize the whole day minute by minute and the execution was flawless.

RESPONSIVENESS:
Elsa is incredibly responsive from our communication pre wedding and on the day of. She is very prompt in returning emails, finding information, and answering questions, which is definitely key when planning such a significant event. We appreciated it very much because it eased a lot of our worries with the planning portion.

PROFESSIONALISM:
ME events team wore all black on the day of the wedding and were very professional. They treated every person at the wedding with respect and answered all their questions. They always had a smile throughout the day. Most importantly, we really didn't notice them throughout the day as the day was so well planned they didn't need to interrupt us.

VALUE:
Whatever package you decide, you will receive more in return. I cannot understand how important a good wedding planner is for your wedding and ME events will not disappoint you.

FLEXIBILITY:
ME events also receives 5 stars for flexibility. Whatever your taste and whatever your budget, both Melissa and Elsa will cater do you.

I would recommend ME events to anyone who is planning their wedding.

BEST DECISION EVER!

My husband and I got married just over a month ago, and we had gone into contract with Elsa and Melissa of ME Events for our Finishing Touches. I must say-- this was the best decision ever. You really need to be able to trust your coordinator, and I felt I was able to do that with them (I worked with mainly Elsa because Melissa had been booked for another event that same day. Either way, Melissa still attended our planning meetings and was also a pleasure).

ME Events is very punctual, efficient, considerate, professional, and suuuper friendly which I loved! They go above and beyond in so many ways, and ultimately do their best to save you money which is incredibly important when planning. Although it was her first time working with my venue, she quickly learned the layout (even better than I did after I had already gone there 3 times on my own). She takes excellent notes, and is VERY quick to respond via email, and this is SO IMPORTANT because most brides don't like waiting too long to hear back.

I would highly recommend ME Events for your wedding (or any big event). I found that the only mistakes regarding the wedding were things I PERSONALLY arranged (shame on me)... like picking out tuxedos, details I wanted to handle, last minute seating changes which Elsa was FABULOUS with fixing, etc. Other than the minimal mishaps (which CAN happen), everything was a huge success.

They made sure all the lighting and decor was just what we wanted! Coordinated a great deal for my photobooth, which also included a projector and screen (equals more savings). Even helped me with some issues AFTER the wedding and even a couple weeks later. ABOVE and BEYOND like I mentioned before. My husband and I will forever be grateful for their hard work and expertise.

THANKS SO MUCH ME Events from the bottom of our hearts!!

Elsa and Melissa, you ladies are the best!

So glad my husband and I decided to work with ME because these ladies made the wedding planning process so easy and organized. We couldn't have done it without them. I still can't believe I am saying this, but I really thought the whole wedding planning process was easy, breezy and beautiful.

After interviewing 3-5 different wedding coordinators, my husband and I decided to go with Mel and Elsa because we had good chemistry with them. They just got it, and understood the importance of every little detail we cared about most during the wedding (practically everything).

I take pride in knowing that I am a well-organized person and can plan events, but Elsa and Melissa just take it to the next level. They really know their stuff! They had solutions for all of our questions, kept us calm during those moments of panic, helped us stay organized and on top of deadlines, and most importantly, reminded us that all of this is for the special day so enjoy every second of it!

We only hired ME for wedding coordination, but they helped with recommending vendors that we hadn't found and assisted with some decor. On the day of the wedding, ME and the team executed the day flawlessly. I felt so relaxed as a bride on the wedding day knowing ME was there to take care of all little details to ensure the wedding was perfect. And I was right.

Thank you, thank you, ME Events and Design. Couldn't have asked for a better team and smart individuals to work with.

I had the pleasure of working with Melissa and Elsa for my wedding on 11/20/11. When I first started planning my wedding, I had only gotten the venue, dress and photographer down. Next thing I did was book a wedding coordinator. My now husband and I interviewed a few others and found Elsa & Melissa of ME Events to stand out the most. These girls did not have an aggressive sales pitch, were organized with their portfolio & presentation, reasonably priced and most of all, seemed very nice, sweet and eager to be part of you wedding day.

As for the wedding coordinator, a lot of people might see this as an extra cost to forgo because you are not receiving any tangible products from them. Big mistake. I am a pretty organized person myself. I can do most of the planning before the wedding, however, I cannot do everything myself on the day of the event. A lot of people would ask their bridesmaids or relatives to help out on their special day. However, they are not professionals at handling these kind events and if something goes wrong, can you really blame them since they are doing you a favor? If something goes wrong on the day of, I don't want to be the one to fix it or know about it. Your wedding should be a day for everyone to enjoy, not a day for people to slave. Do yourself and everyone a favor, hire these girls. Plus, they are fun to work with.

After I booked these girls, they provided excellent recommendations on the vendors they preferred. At times anal, I checked the reviews on the vendors myself to see if they are reputable and reasonably priced and they were!! ME events was very conscious about the budgets of their clients. Who wants to spend extra when you don;t need to? I only got the day of coordination package but these girls went out of their way to forward great vendors for us to use. Finding vendors and interviewing them is a long and tedious process because you never know what you are going to get. Why not go off referrals? Along the way before the wedding, Elsa consistently checked up to see if everything was okay and if we needed anything while fulfilling her obligations as a wedding coordinator. With this level of communication, I knew everything was going to be okay.

Enough said, the day for ME events to shine and prove themselves on the day of the wedding. The event went smoothly except we had to change the cocktail hour and ceremony indoors because it rained. Elsa successfully and effortlessly helped make this happen and kept everyone happy. Not to mention, Elsa & Melissa were extremely successfully in coordinating with all the vendors, eliminating headaches for the bride & groom, staying ahead of schedule and gauging the crowd to ensure the event is flowing smoothly without a dull moment.

I cannot thank these girls enough and felt that they were the best money spent on the whole wedding. Thanks Melissa and Elsa.

Enough said, the day for ME events to shine and prove themselves on the day of the wedding. The event went smoothly except we had to change the cocktail hour and ceremony indoors because it rained. Elsa successfully and effortlessly helped make this happen and kept everyone happy. Not to mention, Elsa & Melissa were extremely successfully in coordinating with all the vendors, eliminating headaches for the bride & groom, staying ahead of schedule and gauging the crowd to ensure the event is flowing smoothly without a dull moment.

I cannot thank these girls enough and felt that they were the best money spent on the whole wedding. Thanks Melissa and Elsa. Read less

Melissa & Elsa were very organized, super easy to work with (even according to all our vendors), and very helpful throughout the process, even though we only hired them them for day-of services. They are great, and I would definitely recommend ME Events & Design to anybody!

Melissa & Elsa were absolutely amazing as our coordinators for our reception at Hyatt Huntington Beach. They were the only ones we met with and only ones we needed to meet with. They impressed us right away with a little hint to keep our reception costs down even before we booked them. At the beginning, we weren't even sure that we needed a coordinator, but once the planning started, we were so glad we decided on these girls. As they explained to us when we first spoke to them, and we found out first hand, they were not just the "day-of" coordinators that we were hiring them as. That could be proven by the probably 50+ emails I exchanged with Melissa even months before the wedding, and by the couple meetings we had as well. They made things so much easier on us and answered all of our questions. There were so many decisions that needed to be made, so many things you wouldn't think of, but they are prepared for all of it.


Their attention to detail was especially apparent in their timeline that they plan for your event. From the limo company, the florist, the chair covers, the DJ, etc...they were in contact with all of our vendors leading up to the wedding, letting them know what they needed to do and what time they needed to do it.


They didn't even stop helping when the wedding was over. We left for our honeymoon the next day, which was a Sunday, but we needed the cupcake stand returned to the bakery which is closed on Sundays and is way out of the way for any of our family. It needed to be returned within 5 days for us to get our $250 deposit back, and they took care of it for us. They really go above and beyond their duties.


Thank you Melissa & Elsa for making our wedding night so perfect! We'll never forget it.


Always,

Oliver & Claire Tabares

Let me just start off by saying that you would be doing yourself, your spouse, your family and your guests a disservice by NOT hiring ME Events. As soon as we had our first meeting with Elsa from ME Events, we knew she was the planner for us. You could tell from the outset that she wanted this to be YOUR wedding, and not hers. My fiance and I did not get this sort of vibe from the other coordinators/planners we met. Elsa asked us lots of questions right from the outset, which was another big difference from the other coordinators. We felt the other vendors were trying too hard to sell themselves. After meeting with Elsa, we practically hired ME on the spot.

We started planning our wedding close to a year in advance. Right from the outset, Elsa was very hands on. She is extremely organized, and reliable. I can remember many instances when she had emailed me some information and I could not recall it, or find that email. Within seconds, she sent me another copy of the previous email! Elsa's insight and advice were also invaluable. She had suggestions and ideas that we would never have thought of. All the while, she was always asking us what we wanted for our wedding. We really appreciated that.

Now, to the most important aspect of wedding planning. The budget. We were fairly fortunate to work with a decent budget, but even so, Elsa was extremely cost conscious. She didn't just recommend all these expensive vendors. In fact, it was just the opposite. She still worked hard to try to save us the most money as humanly possible. I am pretty certain that her budgeting and negotiating skills actually paid for the cost of her services itself. In the end, we actually came in under budget! Sweet! Now we can afford The Westin for our honeymoon in Paris. =)

The weekend of our wedding is when ME Events truly shined. Prior to this date, Elsa had provided us a very detailed schedule for us to follow and that made EVERYTHING go smoothly. I honestly thought I would be more nervous in the days leading up to our wedding day but I think because Elsa had prepped me so thoroughly, it was a breeze! After our ceremony, it was time for the reception and when we got our first peek of the set up, we were absolutely blown away. It was amazing, beautiful and breath taking. We received SO many compliments from friends and family, and the common theme was basically, "best wedding ever!". My new wife and I were truly humbled by these words, and I believe it would not have been nearly as nice had it not been for ME Events. Big thanks to Elsa and Melissa for all your help throughout the entire process. You can tell they both truly love what they do and work tirelessly to make your special day the most special day of your lives. We will always treasure our wedding day and are forever thankful for your their help!!! Thanks again ME Events!!

Our experience with Elsa (and Melissa) of ME Events and Design was so much more than what the rating scale can truly describe. Yes, we give Elsa and ME Events and Design a true perfect rating... let me explain:

We may not have been the easiest couple to work with because I ask too many questions and need overly detailed explanations of everything. To top it off, my wife liked everything and had challenges making a final decision... on every aspect of our wedding. Luckily, Elsa responded to my million emails and calls (seriously... it might have approached this number over the course of the year), patiently worked with us with all the back-and-forth decision making, and helped us navigate the potentially treacherous path of planning our wedding.

I'm a bullet point person so here they are:

* definitely the best money spent at our wedding - the best value for the money spent (we actually thought that they do not charge enough for the amount of time and energy spent)
* they have experience with a wide range of venues and vendors and can help your vendors visualize your dream
* they can help you receive a discount at many of these venues and vendors - these savings essentially pay for their service fee (but you would pay it anyways after you realize what they do)
* they definitely work with you and hold your hand throughout the process - definitely patient
* they think of all the details that can easily be missed during the planning process and the details truly make the difference in pulling off a good wedding from executing an amazing wedding
* regardless of what your budget is, they offer first class service - truly professionals in their field
* they are very conscious of your budget and will always keep this in mind (unless you decide to go crazy and they will go crazy with you)
* aside from being professionals, they truly love what they do... they might be just as excited about your wedding as you are (or at least my wife was) - hugely important in helping plan the wedding... no fake salesperson smiles with Elsa and Melissa
* the most important point for me - there was absolutely no stress before the wedding or on the day of our wedding... zero stress because we knew that Elsa was managing all this stress for us

While it was clearly important to have Elsa and Melissa coordinate the day of the big event, it was critical that they were involved from the beginning. I dislike that I micro-manage everything when I feel that no one else can do it better... in this case, I felt the joy of not having to manage anything but simply enjoy the wedding events. It truly was that easy.

If we had to do it over again, there might be a few changes made but we would definitely turn to Elsa of ME Events and Design to manage everything all over again. Who knows, maybe we will use them if we decide to throw a party or decide to renew our vows in the future.

Good luck and congratulations.

Elsa and Melissa did a fabulous job. They had everything prepared for my wedding day. I had a good sized wedding of about 230 guests. They were able to get everything organized with me as well as all my other vendors. They were in constant contact with me and all the plans. I had a lot of special requests for my special day and they were able to make it all happen. The big day went off without any problems and that was because Elsa and Melissa had everything under control. They were able to work within my budget, they have a great, easy to get along with personalities and were a pleasure to work with. Thank you Elsa and Melissa for making my special day nothing less of perfection!

I started working with Elsa from ME Events and Design about 8-9 months before my wedding. Before I signed up to work with Elsa, all I had done for my wedding was book the church and venue. I had no clue on where to start or what I wanted. I literally needed her advice/opinion and services from everything down to colors and flowers.

The day after I booked Elsa, I immediately began receiving ideas, color palettes, and vendor suggestions. Elsa worked with each vendor to set up meetings, handle negotiations, amongst other behind the scenes magic that I probably don't even know about. I always felt that she had our best interest at heart. She worked hard to keep us within our budget, while suggesting the coolest latest and greatest trends. I'll be the first to admit that I was slow at getting started but Elsa kept me on track and before I knew it, I was crossing items off the list left and right. She responds quickly to emails and I always felt like something was being worked on for my wedding behind the scenes without my knowledge.

When i got overwhelmed, Elsa was there to help with whatever I needed. When I had an idea, Elsa was there with suggestions for me to carry out the idea.

Everything Elsa and I envisioned for close to 9 months came to life on our wedding day 2 weeks ago. I could not be more happy with ME Events. The day went off without a hitch and I was pretty much stress free. i showed up to each location with nothing to worry about, walked into venues that were perfectly setup, and didn't have to think about the logistics of the day. Everything went according to the timeline and we were even ahead of schedule and got to squeeze in an extra surprise for guests. Our wedding was absolutely amazing and beautiful thanks to their services.

Elsa and Melissa were truly a delight to work with and I'm sad that the wedding is over. I've gained friendships thru working with these girls and will continue to keep in touch with them bc I got to know them not only from a professional level, but a personal level as well. My only regret is that I didn't hire them sooner because I was clueless for the first 6 months of my engagement.

I would highly recommend wedding coordinating services, specifically ME Events for a variety of reasons but the most important reason is because I was a stress-free and happy bride. It was a pleasure to work with these gals and I can't imagine my wedding without them.

I hired Melissa and Elsa for my wedding on 2/19/11. I did most of the work myself and really only needed them for their "finishing touches" package, which provided "day of" services and a couple of planning meetings before hand. If I had to do it over again I would hire them for the entire planning process, beginning to end! These gals just did a phenominal job, I mean really. I was concerned over the fact that they were Asian and I was Latin. Only reason being because I was afraid they weren't going to be able to communicate with guests or understand the difference in our cultural wedding traditions. Although I myself am a bit more modern it was still important that the people helping me plan this understood what was important to me as far as traditions. Melissa was my go to girl and she never let me down.
I was so pleased at the way the entire day went. They were punctual, always professional (which is HUGE for me), and truly, these gals were made for this business. They have the right temperment, knowledge and patience for brides and the stress of it all. They handled the several vendors we worked with without a single issue (including mariachis), they gave me great ideas, carried out my wishes exactly as I wanted them and really were just a dream to work with. They were thoughtful enough to save one of our beautiful manzanita centerpieces for us at the end of the night, the helping to set-up and shut down was quick and efficient, they always checked in with me to see how I was doing, they were encouraging and you can really tell every wedding is personal to them.
They were the best find on wedding wire!!

ME events are professional, flexible, organized and the sweetest people I've ever met. They help me plan the wedding from beginning to end.They were always on top of things and made sure I was sticking to my task and timeline. Trust me, that was a lot of work for Melissa and Elsa. They had great ideas, suggestions and recommendations. I was able to enjoy the fun part of planning my wedding and they did all the stressful part. ME worked really well with all of my vendor and family members as well. I highly recommend ME events to plan your wedding or any event. Melissa and Elsa you girls are the BEST!

ME Events & Design planned the perfect wedding for me and my husband. Despite me living in New York and Elsa in Orange County, we were able to coordinate our dream wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. ME Events was extremely responsive with emails, photos, and phone calls. They presented great ideas for our destination wedding -- and not just cookie cutter ideas, but things that really represented me and my husband as a couple. Would definitely recommend them to any future brides looking to plan a beautiful wedding with a personalized touch.

Well I must first off say, you need a wedding coordinator! We started off like many couples thinking we didn't need one, we were going to have some help at our venue on the wedding day and literally 2 weeks before the wedding that help disappeared. We went straight to ME Events and Design and they took everything over and relieved that huge amount of stress. We just handed over all of our information and everything was taken care of. There are too many little details to try and remember along with the big details, I would never try and do our big day alone. Thank you to ME Events and Design to step in and take everything over in such short notice, our wedding turned out amazing. Our Guests couldn't stop telling us how great the wedding looked, and how smooth and easy the day went. This is a direct reflection on ME Events and Design because they ran it perfectly, I don't think it could have gone better. Thank you ME Events and Design

I cannot stop raving about my wedding planner, Elsa Feng, and her company ME Events and Design!

I was referred by my friend who had been a bridesmaid in a wedding serviced by ME Events and Design. And I seriously owe my friend a BIG ONE for referring me to this company! Elsa and Melissa did a FLAWLESS job at my wedding. All of my guests commented on how beautifully decorated the venue was (The Hilton Hotel) and how smoothly the wedding progressed.

As the bride, the wedding day goes by almost in a blur because you are at the center of attention and there are so many people to greet. It is really important to have confidence in your wedding planner. On my big day, I can honestly say that I was not worried about one thing. After working with Elsa during the planning process, I had TOTAL CONFIDENCE in her ability to coordinate the perfect wedding. And that's exactly what she did.

I had the most wonderful time at my wedding. All of my guests were so happy and impressed. And I owe it all to Elsa and Melissa!

After working with Elsa during the planning process, I had TOTAL CONFIDENCE in her ability to coordinate the perfect wedding. And that's exactly what she did.

I had the most wonderful time at my wedding. All of my guests were so happy and impressed. And I owe it all to Elsa and Melissa! Read less

Funny you see 5.0 ratings from all the reviewers, but its seriously true. My wife and I have been so busy with work, that planning a wedding in only a few months seemed impossible. We felt so overwhelmed from the beginning, but then Elsa from ME Events and Design stepped in to help us. She created a list of choices and images from just asking us what colors we wanted. She also showed us variations of colors and samples of what our wedding could look like.

The best thing about Elsa is her communication. She responds quickly and sets up meetings as needed to make sure everything was running smooth. The final week of preparation seemed so easy as she ensured our checklist items were done and ready to go.

The day of service was awesome too. Elsa helped setup all decorations for the tables and the venue. Her and her partner really had everything under control while my wife and I were busy with the ceremony and the all the family socializing.

If you want to enjoy your wedding day, I highly suggest using Elsa and her team. She took care of EVERYTHING so we can focus on the most important day of our lives with family and friends.

My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams on April 3rd, 2010. We were able to soak in special moments, laugh with our family and friends, and truly appreciate what that day represented. This was only possible through the meticulous and diligent coordination of ME Events & Design.

Elsa and Melissa took care of all the details so that we could enjoy our day. They interfaced with our vendors seamlessly to create a perfect timeline, handled all the little touches from our candy buffet to our escort cards, and made the reception run so smoothly without feeling rushed or lulled. This is what a GOOD coordinator does.

What makes ME Events & Design GREAT is that they truly went beyond the call of duty. The week leading up to our wedding, we faced a family tragedy that pulled my husband and I out of the country. Dealing with an emergency and not knowing whether we needed to postpone the wedding caused us a great deal of stress. Knowing that I could not easily access a phone, Elsa immediately offered to help contact all my vendors to coordinate possible alternate dates in case of postponement. Her researching and giving me options immediately put my mind at ease during a difficult time. She comforted me on the phone and assured me that we would work everything out no matter what happened…and she absolutely kept her promise. I am forever grateful.

I would highly recommend ME Events & Design for any special occasion. They are not only hard working and professional, but are good-hearted people as well. You can tell that they love what they do and this passion greatly benefits their clients.

Thank you Elsa and Melissa for making our wedding day so wonderful! We will cherish these memories for the rest of our lives!

As you know, planning a wedding is not for the feint of heart especially if you have never done so before - hopefully you haven't. Regardless, there are so many little details that I would never even have imagined and of course you expect your big day to be immaculate. This is why a professional wedding planner is absolutely necessary. We shopped so many planners an decided to go with ME Events because of their great pricing and professionalism. Melissa, one of the coordinators, was extremely experienced and nice to work with. She helped us pick out everything such as chairs, flowers, centerpieces, table setting, DJ, color schemes etc, etc, etc. I could go on and on and on. There are just too many details and items to keep track of and worry about.

After all the months planning and discussions with ME Events, I had an idea of the mosaic in my head of what to expect. When our wedding day actually arrived, I was completely blown away with how beautiful everything was, and the attention to detail that ME Events provided. They are absolutely the best and I recommend them to any couple who is looking to have the perfect wedding without all the stress! 5 stars by any standard!

We just want to thank ME Events and Design for making our wedding a dream come true.

Eric and I were married last January at Seven Degrees in Laguna Beach – a full-service wedding venue that’s truly modern, breathtaking and beautiful. Even though we were assigned a wedding coordinator from Seven Degrees, we knew we would need help aside from the venue staff in order to keep the day from going haywire.

Melissa is one of my closest friends and served as both my bridesmaid and my event planner. Her warm personality, strong work ethic and commitment to her job shined throughout the entire wedding planning process. Eric and I had a vision on how we wanted to see the day play out but that meant we needed to be extremely detail oriented and work with someone who could understand what we needed. Thankfully we found that in Melissa.

Melissa accompanied us to every design meeting and was always available to us by any form of communication at any time of the day. She also provided insightful suggestions and helped us stayed within our wedding budget. As a result of her hard work, our family and friends were able to enjoy our wedding without worrying about any of the details. In fact, many of our guests still compliment us on our wedding – even after a year has passed!

It was such a pleasure working with ME Events and Design, and I would strongly recommend them to anybody planning a wedding. After all, being a bride is stressful enough; the details should be left to professionals!
