Our wedding pictures are so gorgeous. Fiona really captured the best moments of the day, and we loved every single shot she and her assistant took. We loved working with her from the moment we met her. She's very personable, engaging, and really got the best photographs because of her easygoing nature. Our engagement shots are so personal and beautiful too! She's an amazing photographer and we highly recommend her work!

Mark rocked! He was professional, on time, his equipment had no problems, he took requests, and he kept the dance floor full the entire night!! What more could you ask of your ideal wedding DJ?

We initially hesitated at the thought of hiring a day-of coordinator, let alone a day-of coordination team, because we thought, what could these people do that we couldn't do ourselves on the day-of? Turns out, EVERYTHING. I don't even want to think about how our wedding on August 9 would have turned out had it not been for this dynamic duo. They went above and beyond to make our vision happen ... and they had to travel almost 2 hours to do it! We had so many issues with our hotel coordinator that we decided we didn't trust her enough to have her set the whole wedding up by herself. We found Melissa and Kasey on the Knot, and their prices were super affordable, so we decided to give them a try -- we don't regret it for an instant! A few examples of above and beyond: our wedding was in Monterey, and to save some $$, we found a place in San Jose that let us pick up and drop off chair covers and sashes, all we had to do was set them up! So Melissa drove from Dublin, picked them up and drove them to Monterey, and she and Kasey set up all 130 chair covers and sashes just the way I wanted them. The set-up was amazing, they handled all the breakdown and worked until well past 1am, they did everything they could to make our night look beautiful and made sure we didn't worry about a single thing all night. Another example: my husband and I had ordered special passed hors d'oeurves, and we were lamenting the possibility of missing cocktail hour due to photos. Melissa and Kasey knew this was important to us, and made sure they set aside some of these special apps and drinks so we wouldn't miss out. Also, my bustle broke three times. THREE TIMES. They fixed it quickly every time and I didn't miss a minute on the dance floor. I'll also say this: the Tuesday and Wednesday before my wedding, I was completely frazzled and stressed out about all the details. The minute I handed all the stuff over to the two of them (and it was like a busload of stuff), I felt enormous relief. I can't say enough good things about them -- they were responsible, professional, top notch coordinators, and I would recommend them without hesitation. If anything, the gorgeous, flawless wedding we had only a few weeks ago speaks to the outstanding quality of their work.
