My wife and I knew we needed a wedding planner since we're both medical residents who have little time and don't live close to each other. We wanted to enjoy the experience and not have to be stressed out on our big day. Somehow we stumbled upon Mele Amore and upon meeting Michelle Groom, we instantly knew we had won the lottery and she was the one.

- Booking Mele Amore was hands down THE best decision we made. By far.
- Any stress or worry that we had, was immediately alleviated by Michelle.
- Michelle is always made us feel like VIPs. She responds lightning quick and always went above and BEYOND for any requests that we had.
- Somehow she was able to negotiate lower prices for all our vendors and the discount that we got in the end entirely paid for the wedding planning services itself!
- My wife's hairstylist, who's done a ton of weddings and shows (he does hair for alessandra ambrosia!) told me that Michelle was one of the most organized and meticulous wedding planners that he had seen. Guests throughout the night kept telling me how awesome my wedding planner was.
- I love how during the wedding, the team has these earpiece/microphone things like the secret service and are able to communicate quickly and effectively. They even used it to get us drinks from the bar when we were busy!
- Michelle has great vision and always provided us her honest opinion.
- Having pinterest increases the cost of our vision significantly. Luckily Michelle always had ideas on how to make it work with our budget.
- Michelle was extremely detailed. Take the most detailed person you've met and multiply by 10.
- We decided to design the wedding invitations ourselves. Once we did, Michelle insisted that she pick up invitations from the printer and have her team assemble them and send them out.

Mele Amore deserves much more than they charge. Book them before celebrities find them and swoop them up! Michelle, we miss you!

Our caterer (Top Catering) had recommended Michelle and we're so happy we listened to him. We hired Mele Amore for day of coordinating but I feel like we got so much more than "day of" service. Michelle was so attentive, responsive, supportive, and creative. Michelle was great with communicating with us during the planning process and reached out to all of our vendors the weeks leading up to the big day to make sure everyone was on the same page. We had almost 200 guests, a team of vendors which included lighting, rentals, catering, security, shaved ice, dj, photo booth, etc. and Michelle knew where everyone was supposed to be at any given time. We also had Farrah assisting Michelle and she was super sweet, focused and stern when she needed to be (we put her on "bad cop" duty when it came to our Vietnamese and Filipino moms and aunties). Both of them had a great sense of humor and the day of the wedding, they showed up ready for business (company branded fanny pack with anything and everything a frantic bride might need - they even had snacks when my flower girls started getting cranky).

I can't express how happy we were with Mele Amore throughout the planning process and on the actual wedding day. My husband and I like to think of ourselves as a low maintenance couple with a high maintenance venue (we got married at the Newland Barn which is all DIY). Although I reached out and booked all of our vendors for our big party, team Mele Amore was instrumental in piecing all of the different elements together to turn our big party into the biggest day of our lives.

Mele amore was highly recommended to us and they did not disappoint! We worked with Michelle, and she made the planning process VERY easy and stress free. The wedding and reception were beautiful and we owe this to Michelle!!! Trust us, she is worth every penny. She responds to emails and is a great communicator. She is pleasant to work with and truly has a passion and talent for what she does! Best of all she's just a good hearted person that we plan to have as a friend even after the wedding!

Our dream wedding would not have happen if it was not for the amazing talent of LanAnh and her team from Mele Amore! While interviewing numerous coordinators, the best advice I received was to choose someone that I will have that special "connection" with. At first, I never really understood what that meant, until I met LanAnh. From our initial meeting, we spent over 2 hours talking about everything from the wedding to our love for food and sweets! Talk about instant connection! LanAnh is by far one of the sweetest people that I have ever met. She is honest and sincere, and very thoughtful with all of her suggestions. When asked for her opinion, LanAnh is very thorough with all of her input, and will assess all the pros and cons before making her final recommendation. She is prompt to answering all emails, text messages, and phone calls, which is a huge plus! On rehearsal day, as well as our wedding day, our family and friends could not stop raving about how professional and courteous LanAnh was to everyone. She made sure that every little detail of our wedding day was accounted for, and although our wedding day was super long (12+ hours), not once was LanAnh not smiling and cheerful. Looking back on our wedding day, my husband and I swear that having LanAnh a part of our wedding day was the BEST decision we made throughout our entire planning process. Our wedding day went on so smoothly and without a glitch, all thanks to LanAnh and her team. If you're looking for a planner who is professional and sincere, and who you can trust whole hardheartedly, then LanAnh from Mele Amore is your girl! She is hands down SPECTACULAR!

My Husband and I always knew what kind of wedding we wanted. It was always one of our topics of conversation between us in the ten years we were dating (Yeah, I know, 10 YEARS! LOL). During our 10 years of dating, we had been to many of our friends’ weddings, so we had seen/witnessed every type of wedding, weddings of other cultures, etc. He finally popped the question to me after 9 years of dating/being together. So now the wedding planning ensued…

We usually don’t throw big parties on our own, but for our special day, we wanted it to be the most memorable, unique, super fun, not so serious, not so uptight--wedding. My Husband and I are not the most detail oriented, organized people, so we knew that we had to get a wedding planner to guarantee our wedding was going to be a success, especially with a 250+ guest count. Not to be biased, but I can say with no reservations that our wedding was the best wedding/party my Husband and I have ever been to. Our special day went EXACTLY how we envisioned and we honestly feel that it would not have panned out that way if it wasn’t for our amazing wedding planner, LanAnh of Mele Amore, Inc! It is no exaggeration when I say she is the epitome of AMAZING! She is definitely our Ms. Ah-mazing!

We interviewed six wedding planners total (All in one day LOL) but when we met LanAnh, we knew right then and there that she was going to be our girl. You know those conversations you have with your best friend for 2 hours+ and when you realize how much time has elapsed, you’re like “Oh my god its been two hours already?” Yeah, that was how our first conversation with LanAnh went. She became our friend from the beginning and not just a business partner. She’s super chill and friendly! Please read the rest of my review at:

I would not recommend this wedding coordinator. There were many little things throughout the wedding day that I was not satisfied with, but that I tried to overlook. However, I cannot overlook the fact that months later I am learning that somehow some of our vendors did not receive their tips that Michelle was supposed to give to them. She is unprofessional, overlooked important details, and I would not recommend her services.

Michelle and her team are the best! Everyone talks about how much work/stress goes into planning a wedding but for us it was actually pretty easy. Michelle does a great job in keeping you calm and aware of pending deadlines, design stuff, budgets issues, meetings etc. She also connected us to great vendors and helped us get discounts. We couldn't be happier with how beautiful our wedding turned out. It's been 2 weeks since our wedding and we're still getting compliments about how perfect the day was. We were deciding between 2 diff. planners early on and we are sooooooo happy we decided to go with Michelle.

We had the best day of coordinator we could ever ask for! LanAnh is soo freaking good at what she does!! I found LanAnh on yelp and after reading all the reviews on Mele Amor Events it seemed like a match. When my fiancé (now husband) and I met with LanAnh for the first time we knew we had to book her. She is soo organized, calm, and makes any stressful task seem doable. On the big day, I even had some of our guest ask me for her name and contact information because she was just that amazing. I will definitely recommend LanAnh to anyone. She really is gem!

The best advice I got in preparing for my wedding was to hire a wedding planner. Second to marrying my husband, this was, by far, the best decision I made for our big day. In the process of trying to find the right planner, we quickly got discouraged by a couple coordinators around our area who weren't willing to work with our smaller budget. When we saw the website for Mele Amore, we were absolutely floored by their work. We thought there was no way we would be lucky enough to have them help us, but sure enough, Michelle took us under her wing, and we are soooo glad she did!

Michelle basically just came to our rescue and went way above and beyond! She is everything a couple could ask for in a coordinator/planner! We are talking one of a kind, creative, dependable, patient, organized, not afraid to take charge kind of person on top of being one of the sweetest, most caring people we've ever met! She not only made our ordinary ideas into something spectacular, she took on our small budget, which we stressed out about, and made it a nice challenge for herself. She worked incredibly hard to get what we wanted to fit within our price range. There was nothing she couldn't handle, including our almost impossible venue, who were not the easiest people to work with.

Throughout the whole planning process, Michelle was right there helping us through and through. On the wedding day, she and her awesome teammate, LanAnh, took such amazing care of not just us, but our wedding party, family, and friends, as well. So many of our guests raved about them. We basically just wish they could plan every event in our lives because they are that amazing.

If you're looking for a coordinator/planner, please look no further than Mele Amore. Our day was nothing less than perfect. It was so beautiful and more than we could ever hope for. We cannot say enough about how awesome they are!
