Weddings by Melinda
Melinda is Great! She has a list of terrific vendors that she would recommend to you in the begining and all of them are wonderful professionals and within budget. I ended up using most of whom she introduced and assembled a team that has worked together many times before. Under Melinda's leadership, the team provided top-rated service on my Wedding Day and truely created a special memory for everyone invited. Melinda is very experienced in what she does, that's both planning for the Wedding and coordinating on the Wedding Day. She will lead you through every piece of detail and at times bargain on your behalf with the vendors. I lost track of how much I saved because of her. Unlike some other planners, she represents you, the client. On the day of, Melinda oversaw all the activities herself and made sure my bride and I could be worry-free and enjoy the day. It's a lot of fun working with Melinda; I would hire her again but that just can't happen (wedding-wise)... LOL
Melinda was an AMAZING wedding planner! From the beginning of the process until the end of the wedding night, she was there for me! She was always available to talk and we met at various times leading up to the wedding! She pointed me in the right direction with vendors and handled everything for me! I didn't realize the stress that would come with planning a wedding, but Melinda took care of all that for me and I completely trusted her and the wedding could not have been better! I will recommend her to anyone getting married!!! I can't say enough about how amazing she was and her staff!!!!
Like many couples, when we started planning our wedding, one of our first tasks was to find a venue. Hiring a wedding coordinator was not on the top of our list. Boy were we wrong. If we were to do it all over again, we would've started with a wedding coordinator... before all else.
Before we met Melinda, we thought we were doing a good job, doing our own research, interviewing vendors, etc. Meeting with Melinda for the first time was an eye opening experience. She reviewed our contracts and vendor selections, and offered honest evaluations, along with many cost cutting suggestions that we had not considered (i.e. negotiating the cost of kid's meals). Additionally, she offered so many great ideas, and was an invaluable resource. If only we had met with her earlier, it would've saved us hours of research, and given us so much more negotiating power.
Leading up to the wedding day, as stress levels began to rise, Melinda was always available, responsive, and constantly re-assuring us.
The wedding day was PERFECT, and went off without a hitch. We enjoyed every minute of the day, having full confidence in Melinda to take care of all the details. She was professional, extremely organized, and kept us on schedule. In hindsight, we know that more than any other vendor, Melinda was the reason the event was such a success.
To a fabulous wedding coordinator, and friend... THANK YOU!!

AMAZING is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Melinda. We had about 250 + adults and 25 kids at our wedding and I can’t even remember how many vendors but yes Melinda pulled everything off. I had so many little details and she didn’t miss a thing. The night would not have been possible without her help and her guiding us through the entire process. Melinda is the kind of wedding planner that will respond to your late night panic emails right away and she will remind you about things you would not have even thought of. My husband and I really enjoyed our wedding because of her. In closing, if your still wondering if you should hire her the answer is YES! I know it can be expensive but I have to say in the end Melinda saved us money. She stopped me from buying a million little things I didn’t need and would text me great deals and also worked with vendors to make sure we got the best deal.
When we met with Melinda we had already interviewed several coordinators. She was only 1 of 2 that made a follow up call to us. From the first meeting I felt as though she "gelled" with my husband and I. He said " I really like her." and coming from a man that speaks few words that says a lot.
Melinda was the BEST wedding decision that we made. During the last week/week and a half Melinda really "went to bat" for us when dealing with a particular vendor. She is a TRUE professional ( and there were several that we met that were NOT). She made suggestions on what she thought would work best ,and we completely trusted her in doing this.
I would often email her several times a day/week, changing the guest list count, the number of chairs we needed, even on the actual wedding day! She was never bothered by this, and often calm, cool, and collected. The ceremony and reception area were far more beautiful than my husband and I ever envisioned.
As it turns out Melinda and her husband were married on the same day as DH and I ( thanks David for sharing your wife with us on your special day too!).
We hired Melinda to be our coordinator/planner, but what we got out of our experience with her was much, much more than that. We gained a great, new friend.
So Melinda if you are reading this-THANK YOU!
Melinda was wonderful! She made our wedding everything we imagined it to be and more. She's on top of everything, easy to work with, accommodating, trustworthy, had lots of ideas to make our wedding even better, and really looked out for our best interest i.e. helped save us money with certain vendors. We loved all the vendors she recommended too. We used her sweetheart package and it was exactly what we needed for level of service and was very reasonably priced. On the day of the wedding, Melinda made sure all the little details were in place and even added a special touch to our hotel room with flowers on the bed. We, and our family and friends, were really able to enjoy our wedding day and not stress because we knew Melinda was handling everything for us. We definitely recommend Melinda to any bride and groom because we couldn't have done it without her.
Melinda provided coordination services for us for the day of our wedding, and was fantastic! She contacted all of our vendors for us to make sure everything was in order, created a great timeline and kept us to it the day of the event, and was very supportive and helpful in all respects! I would highly recommend her as a vendor. She helped decrease our stress load 100% so we could sit back and enjoy our wedding, and we felt so confident things were in control, and would run smoothly. I think the wedding day coordination was a great package, very affordable, and one of the best decisions we made in terms of our vendors. In addition to providing coordination services for the day of the wedding, she can also provide suggestions of vendors and help to make last minute arrangements. She also provided helpful advice about things like seating arrangements and the schedule of events at the wedding which helped us to make our decisions. Finally, she is a great person to work with who is extremely responsive and responsible. I would highly recommend her services to any bride and groom.
A day of coordinator is a must cuz you don't want to worry on your wedding day...and Melinda did an awesome job of it! She recommended some great vendors to me and handled all the little things I did not want to deal with on my wedding day.
I even ran into some issues 2 days before the wedding (on rehearsal day) with the parents telling me I HAD to do something about covering the ceremony site for the guest due to the extreme heat wave we were having...I pretty much was burnt out from wedding planning and did not want to deal with it anymore so I did not go out and get anything. On my wedding day, when I show up at the venue, Melinda asks if I rented some umbrellas to cover the ceremony site.. I told her no and that I was done with it and I did not care (I was having a short ceremony so some guests would suffer for at most 20 minutes) BUT somehow Melinda pulled some magic strings for me while I was getting ready and when I walked out to the site there were umbrellas to provide shade for my guests.. needless to say our parents were very pleased. Thanks Melinda!
If your having a wedding ... you need Melinda~
We could not have been more thrilled with Melinda's services for the rehearsal and actual wedding day!! My husband is the typical guy in that when the suggestion for a coordinator arose he said, "Why do we need someone to do that? I can probably do it myself". Hilarious. Well, it was hard to convince him that on our wedding day we didn't need to be worrying about the caterer arriving on time, guests being seated, setting up decorations and just streamlining all the different forces that need to come together seamlessly for a few hours. He was still skeptical. Fast forward to the rehearsal-- our wedding party felt a great peace of mind knowing what they were doing, our parents were put at ease (they were more nervous than we were!), and the tremendous amount of details were left up to Melinda. The next day at our wedding, things may have gone wrong (everyone promises this WILL happen) but my husband and I did not have to even think twice about it because Melinda was able to completely take command of the situation and made the day about each OTHER not the little things. As a result, we had such a loving, amazing, beautiful wedding. Completely a dream day. We cannot say enough about Melinda...she is not only meticulous, organized, experienced, cool, calm and collected but she is such a kind person. Needless to say, my husband now says, "Aren't you so glad I found Melinda and pushed you to have her at our wedding?!" Oh boy. :) We couldn't have done it without her!!
How should we describe Melinda? A WONDER WOMAN!!! It's been so grateful working with Melinda from day 1. She truely has the experience, creativity, and flexibility. She's such a sweetheart who will work on every detail with you. I must say it is worth to hire a wedding planner to save your day because she definitely saved our day. We had a flawless day until our MC/DJ lost our family name list, list of songs, and agenda. We didn't have a small wedding but a wedding of 260+ guests. Melinda went out of her way and made sure that our reception was on schedule even when some of the things couldn't be replaced. I don't know what she did, but she complete the night and none of us noticed the flaw. Our guests had a wonderful time, and we didn't want the night to end.
THANK YOU MELINDA, and we LOVE you!

This is the first review I've ever written for anything/anyone, and I'm happy that it's for Melinda. She was absolutely indispensable on my wedding day. Suffice it to say that although I tried my best, there were things that my hubby and I let slip through the cracks because of insufficient time or because we just simply forgot. Things likes changes in the timeline and who was giving the intro speech, unforeseen or unaccounted for guests, etc. Fortunately, Melinda was right there to pick up the pieces. She worked with all my vendors to ensure that everyone was on the same page, knew the timeline, and did what they were supposed to do. Melinda also made sure all the details we wanted like flowers on the napkins, gold chargers (which were her suggestion and worked beautifully), the wood-carved cake toppers we had specially made, and everything else was all in place so that we didn’t have to worry. Truth be told, I knew I wouldn’t have to worry because in our meetings, Melinda was always so organized and efficient. I knew we would be in good hands. In the end, everything was seamless, and my hubby and I were able to begin our happily-ever-after on a blissful note. And the added bonus was Melinda was so affordable. We truly lucked out.
Melinda, we just want to say thank you thank you thank you!!! ;D
My wedding just passed on 5/22/10 and I can't thank Melinda enough for all her hardwork and great ideas. When I first started wedding planning, I knew I had to hire a coordinator. I contacted several other coordinators before I met with Melinda. When I called her she was very professional and polite and offered to meet with me to do an initial consultation. We clicked right away and after our consultation was over, I knew that I had to hire Melinda for our wedding. She's been great to work with and very quick to respond to all of my emails. Her vendors that she referred me to were AWESOME. On my big day, I knew everything would be taken care of. Melinda was such a lifesaver. We had an outdoor ceremony and it was windy the day of my wedding and my veil kept falling off. I didn't get any extra bobby pins from the hair salon, but surely enough, Melinda came to my rescue with her emergency kit. She truly went above and beyond her call of duties and our wedding day was just perfect. It went so smoothly and all of our guests had a great time!
I was very skeptical to hire a wedding coordinator at first. I thought I was organized and had everything in order, so there really was no need. After being persuaded by my mom, we finally decided to work it into our budget...And I am SO grateful I did!
Melinda was so professional, helpful, sweet, and really gave me the peace of mind that I needed on our wedding day. When I first stepped into our ballroom, I was blown away with all of the details she helped me set up and execute -- Something I definitely could not have pulled off without her help. Throughout the evening she was always around when I needed to get a "time check" and kept the entire night running smoothly. She gave us step by step instructions on how to do the cake cutting -- No one ever tells you how to do these things so I know we would have been lost without her there! When we arrived to our hotel suite after a long day, it was SUCH a relief to find our dinner awaiting us and our room decorated beautifully with flowers (I told her to reserve a few centerpieces for me so we could take some home).
Working with Melinda was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I feel so lucky to have met her and trusted my wedding day with her!
Johnny and I would like to thank you for creating the memorable wedding for us. When we evaluated among the planners, we decided to go with you because of your warmness and the personality. What has set you apart was the fact that you didn't treat our wedding as another project in the portfolio, but truly as an important and meaningful event for both of us and yourself as well. We know that we made the right choice.
The vendors you recommended were excellent. We are very pleased with them. Even with a lot of last minute mind-changing, you have remained very patient and professional. With our very busy schedules and multi-destination weddings, you have made it a lot more manageable as well as making it an enjoyable journey as well.
Yui & Johnny Hsieh
I cannot express how wonderful Melinda is! I was referred to her from the hotel I was having my wedding at by people who knew of her skills and I was glad I asked.
She knows her stuff and every detail is accounted for and more than anyting she is absolutely generous. Out pure kindness she gifted us little things that made a big difference in our wedding. She is tough and knows her stuff yet kind and open for suggestions or ideas and every suggestion she made my husband and I agreed to.
She has a great eye for color and taste and I trusted her instinct besides you can see her work for yourself on her website. I adore Melinda and without hesitation I would recommend Melinda to anyone planning a wedding! My wedding flowed smoothly and every detail down to the gifts and sign in table was thought of all I had to do was have fun, feel beautiful and sleep well without worrying about a thing!
My husband was so impressed with her he presented a gift to her during the wedding....Melinda is amazing!
What can I say??? I cannot express how GLAD/DELIGHTED/LUCKY I was to have her because she made everything I envisioned come to fruition!!!
Before I decided to hire a wedding coordinator, my fiance was not sure if I really needed one (actually, I thought the same). I figured I had a year to plan and that should be enough.
Everyone kept telling me, do not expect to have everything go smoothly... and to hire a wedding coordinator for the day off if I could afford it... and so I did.
Melinda was referred to me by a co-worker who's daughter recently got married. They were very very impressed and happy with her work that I took that as enough proof to hire/meet with her.
When I first met her, I was all over the place... jumping from one idea to another,but she kept me aligned throughout my wedding planning. At first, I was concerned because I am NOT used to relying on others to get things done (its the Type A personality). But believe me, she helped me so much (she probably doesn't even realize it).
Let me fast forward to 2 weeks before the wedding.... up to this time, I was pretty much doing a lot of the planning because I wanted to experience it (Melinda was consistently checking up on me to make sure we are on top of everything and within the timeline).
She basically took care of everything from then on. Coordinating with the vendors and making sure everything is there and ready. Even my vendors LOVED speaking/working with her. She took charge and kept everyone in line.
When I envisioned the wedding reception banquet room, I just wanted the place to look nice and inviting... WHEN I WALKED IN... OMG the place looked AMAZING... even my guests said the place looked GREAT... I dont know how Melinda did it but the place... looked (have I said) AMAZING.. I knew then that things are in good hands!!
During the reception, we had some shy speakers therefore we were actually waaaay ahead of schedule. Melinda was always there to make sure things flowed smoothly. She worked with every vendor and made sure that they knew where they are supposed to be.
Our wedding night was perfect as can be and because of Melinda's help, it was even more perfect than I have ever imagined. My fiance/husband who is always hard to please through the night, kept telling Melinda "you are doing an awesome job".
Melinda actually thought he was saying that because he had too much to drink.. but really, he meant it. The day after the wedding he said to me, "Melinda really helped us a lot, she made the night relaxing and easy for us"
We highly recommend her... she is very easy-going and very talented. Our wedding couldn't have been that successful without her.
(warning: long post, but worth the read!)
As the wedding drew closer, I realized that I didn't want to worry too much on the day of my wedding. What happens if an extra guest appeared? What's if a guest got drunk? I didn't want to be the one to keep a look out if something went wrong. So I decided to hire some help: Melinda! And I am so glad I made this decision.
Hiring a coordinator is quite difficult since you want to make sure you choose someone who is knowledgeable and of course, experienced and jives well with you and your significant other's personality. I have heard horror stories of coordinators who arrived late, unable to control situations, and who danced with the wedding guests all night when really you hired them to work and make sure everything is well taken care of.
So, I took my time to research a couple coordinators out there, but in the end chose Melinda. Aside from being friendly and smart, I hired her for the following qualities she exudes:
In our first meeting she arrived on time and dressed professionally. She came prepared with her materials and can articulate her background and business well. She didn't bombard us with a million questions and took time to actually listen to our ideas and needs. I was very impressed by this. For all other meetings following that, she always arrived earlier than needed (good sign), and always returned my emails and phone calls in timely manners. She also met with me one night
(even though she was sick) since that was the only time I could meet to discuss the wedding.
Her background/resume is full of weddings and she is a certified coordinator. She also had experience working at the site of my wedding (Rancho Las Lomas, Silverado, CA). This was a major plus for me as I know the interior can be quite complex, so I really needed someone who knows the area, and the folks on site. Also has a newbie bride, she was patient with me, educating me on the ways of weddings. During my reception, she was kneeling in a corner whispering discreetly to me what I needed to do (cut cake -> toast-> kiss), which was good otherwise I would have just cut the cake and sat back down (yes I'm that naive). She also made sure to keep me updated on things that were going on in the wedding (we're on time, guests arrived).
When I asked Melinda about ideas for the ceremony, she had a wealth of information to share (sand ceremony, doves...etc), which was awesome and enlightening. I wanted to do a wishing well/pot but didn't have time to do it the night before, but she did it anyways for me (brought the bowl, set up the area), so that I would have additional keepsakes after the wedding! On a side note, as I was planning the honeymoon, she even mentioned a place to stay in Hawaii for my honeymoon (a B&B inn) - which by the way, was awesome!!! I thank her for this. :)
Melinda worked with my budget and is very honest with me about her time. Did I really need the last hour (which was just dancing) with a coordinator? Probably not and she saved me some money. I really appreciated this (as I practically had no budget left). She also understood this and gave me referrals to other vendors who can help me meet my budget.
Bottom line is this: If you think you need a coordinator in the OC/LA area, I highly suggest Melinda. Definitely email or call her and see if she is a fit for your needs.
Thank you Melinda for making my wedding go smoothly!
NOTE: Her assistant was also very nice and approachable. :)
Melinda was very helpful, calming, reassuring during the process leading up to my actual wedding at the Coyote Hills Golf Course in Fullerton on 11/14/2009. She gave me a lot of good advice, support, and flexibility leading up to the wedding. Melinda met with me 2x at the venue to go through the details of the day and made various phone calls with me prior to the point. Talking to her was always reassuring and helped me to feel confident in her capabilities and that the day would go off without a hitch.
Our wedding was quite a big ordeal - we had 255 people, 8 Bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, and I was very specific about certain details that I wanted for our wedding. Melinda did a great job communicating with my vendors (florist, photographer, uplighting, DJ, cake vendor, Coyote Hills Venue) the couple weeks prior to our actual day and helped me to put together a great day-of timeline. Melinda took care of everything that we had discussed, on the day of the wedding - from setting up the reception layout, to keeping the schedule moving along, to refilling our candy jars for our favor station, to setting up the cocktail hour & placecards, and breaking everything down before she left. Melinda also stayed an extra hour, longer than our original contract. She didn't have to do that and went above & beyond the call of duty. My husband Arnold and I were so deeply appreciative of that. We know that our wedding went off so successfully b/c of Melinda and her assistant, and she made it the MOST WONDERFUL day of our lives!!!
- Sarah and Arnold Koh
All of the brides I have ever talked to said that their one main regret about their wedding day was that they didn't hire a day-of coordinator for their reception. I took this advice to heart and began searching for someone competent and reasonable, price-wise. The coordinator of the Patina Group at the Bowers Museum, Santa Ana (where we had our wedding reception) referred me to Melinda. From the first email, I felt like she was on the ball - she called me within 15 minutes to start discussing plans and details.
Melinda and her assistant Cama met with me twice to make sure that I had everything I needed, in addition to the inevitable (almost) daily emails. She contacted all of our vendors in advance to make sure that everyone was on the same page, and put together a time line for us so everyone could be sure to know what was going to happen ahead of time. Throughout this, she was open to suggestions from my husband or I and was also quick to provide her suggestions based on her experience if she felt something was off.
For the day of our wedding, Melinda was not able to be there in person for our reception. Her assistant Cama stepped in and handled everything perfectly. She supervised everything and everyone - and kept my husband and I on task without being pushy or overbearing. She was very efficient and nice and we were so thankful she was there.
I would highly recommend Melinda's company for couples looking to relax on their wedding day and not feel worried about vendors, time lines or problems. Everything turned out perfect!
- Jessica & Scott Ross
I'm the type of person who likes to know all of the details. I would constantly go back and forth with Melinda regarding the timeline trying to iron out EVERY detail. What an unnecessary effort that was! Melinda did such an awesome job at the wedding! I didn't have to worry about a thing that day and everything turned out perfectly! Just let Melinda handle everything and you won't be sorry. She is so patient and sweet - she offered to let me call her just to vent! I am so glad we decided to get a day-of coordinator, and even happier that we hired Melinda!
Melinda was an amazing day of coordinator! She was very helpful with her suggestions, since I felt a little clueless when it came to timing and events. She was diligent in following up with my vendors prior to the wedding and was very well organized on the day of the wedding. A few days before the wedding, she called to check how I was doing, let me vent a little, and took care of some last minute things. The day of the wedding, she ran the wedding on time and without any worries to me. Brides - I highly recommend getting a day of coordinator (since you can't do it all) and I highly recommend Melinda. She was absolutely wonderful!
Melinda and Cama, her assistant, at Weddings by Melinda were amazing! I was planning my California wedding from the East Coast so I needed a lot of help tying up some loose ends. My communication with Melinda started about 3-4 weeks before the wedding and included a face to face meeting where we covered all the details of the wedding day and endless emails and phone calls. Melinda and Cama were also there for my rehearsal. With a 30 person wedding party, I needed all the help I could get and I trusted Melinda to take control of the entire event.
In addition to the coordination, Melinda provided a great floral designer referral and helped prevent a possible disaster with my flowers with only 2 weeks before the wedding! On the day of wedding, I was totally relaxed because I knew that Weddings by Melinda would be taking care of it. And they did! My husband and I got to experience the best day of our lives so far with the help of Weddings by Melinda! Thank you so much!!!
if you like things to be done right the first time, melinda is your girl! melinda is a very resourceful coordinator. she made wonderful suggestions & provided a variety of referrals which made my life so much easier. melinda's experience shows! she quickly responded to my emails/phone calls/messages--that was impressive! melinda provided a specific event timeline/list which included absolutely everything you can possibly imagine for that special day and kept in contact with all my vendors for reminders, changes, etc.
i would not have survived without melinda taking control on my wedding day! she is easy to work with, professional and focused. she made my vision come alive! because of melinda, i was relaxed and enjoyed my entire event. i know its hard to believe brides, but melinda made it happen & i was stress-free on my wedding day =)
MELINDA CALLS ON MY COMPANY FOR MANY WEDDING SERVICES. SHE IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND EASY TO WORK WITH. SHE ALWAYS PROVIDES A DETAIL TIMELINE OF THE EVENT AND GIVE US PLENTY OF INPUT ON ROOM LAYOUT, SET UP TIME ALONG WITH ACCESS, WHICH IS KEY TO THE EVENT STARTING ON TIME. I HAVE WORKED WITH MANY OF HERE BRIDES FOR 5 YEARS, AND SO FAR, IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE.

Melinda was wonderful! She was very professional, organized, and dependable. She worked very closely with us to make sure that our wedding was perfect for us within our budget. Melinda had great ideas to take our wedding to the next level and was able to recommend some wonderful vendors that not only did a great job but saved us a ton of money! Our wedding started on time and we were able to stick to the timeframe she set up for us. I was on the fence at first about hiring a coordinator but Melinda was worth every penny...and more! Thanks to Melinda, "bridezilla" never showed her face and we enjoyed a stress-free wonderful day! Thanks Melinda! :)

Melinda is an awesome coordinator! She is very professional with a personal touch to each one of her brides. She makes sure everything is done down to the last little detail. I always look forward to working with her. It is such a pleasure because she makes everything run efficiently. Jennifer Bernard, Jenny B Floral Design
Melinda was an amazing coordinator! Her timeline was inclusive and right on. She was able to stick to the schedule and made my wedding day go smoothly and beautifully! Her recommended vendors were reliable and did a great job. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
Melinda has been a great wedding coordinator. She is very professional and dependable. Our wedding is in three weeks, and Melinda has helped me stay on top of everything. All the vendors she referred me to have also been very good, and reasonable in price. I highly recommend hiring Melinda if you want your wedding planning to be an enjoyable one!
Melinda was my day-of-coordinator. She did a great job - the reception went very smoothly. She wrote the timeline and the wedding stayed on schedule. I was very happy with the wedding. She's prompt and courteous - I definitely recommend her. She also gave me a great referral for an officiant who was terrific. She's also a nice dresser. :)
Melinda is a true professional and it shows in how she works with the bride and groom.
Her attention to detail is exceptional and her creative abilities are also showcased when assisting the bride in
bringing the look and feel of the wedding together. She is a true gem!
My husband & I celebrated our 1st anniversary recently, and in the process, we've been reminiscing about our wonderful & joyous wedding day. I'm so thankful that our memories are filled with laughing and partying with friends and family, when it could have easily have been a totally different story...it's a wedding, so anything that can go wrong, probably will. So I give credit where credit is due. Melinda did a great job handling the caterers, the dj, the father-of-the-bride (big props!). She is professional, humble, and experienced. So much so, that I had no worries on the big day. From the moment my husband & I vetted her at our first meeting, we knew she'd be the right coordinator for us. For my then fiance, there were few enjoyable aspects in the wedding planning, but I remember him clearly saying after our meeting, "I like her, she helped me negotiate with the site vendor, she knows her stuff! Cool."
Melinda, you are great! Happy Anniversary.
I really enjoy working with Melinda, she is extremely talented and organized but more importantly, she is very cool under pressure. I personally think the coordinator has the toughest job in the wedding industry and I have seen the stress get to a lot of people but not her. She's cool, calm and collected and gets things done without a hitch.

Cory and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did the day of our wedding and for all of your help prior to our wedding day. Everything went so smoothly; we would have just been lost without you. It was a great feeling knowing you were there and had everything under control so we could relax and enjoy ourselves, and we most definitely did!
Take care & thanks again,
Wow - where do I start? Thank you so much for everything. We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and keeping us on track (which I know wasn't easy).
THANK YOU, THANK YOU AND THANK YOU!!!!!!
Lisa & Joe
To say thank you in not enough. It was a beautiful day and event thanks to you. I never would have found the vendors and venue on my own. You did an awesome job of understanding my taste and wishes and incorporating Will's vision into it all. Your help and support on that day though was priceless. Ive known you for so many years and felt like a proud parent to see you in action that day. You are truly an accomplished businesswoman who is master of her craft.
Matt and I are so grateful for all your hard work. We are so excited about how our special day turned out and we owe it all to you. All of the vendors that you recommended did a fabulous job and were so determined to give us exactly what we wanted. You went above and beyond to give us our dream wedding and paid so much attention to every detail.Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Kari and Matt
We can't express to you how much we enjoyed our wedding event. All the extra touches you provided (timeline, contact list, party favors, seating chart) were amazing. They not only saved us time and effort; they were done so professionally that our already married guests want to hire you and get married again!
All the best and thanks again.
John and Aliza
Thank you so much for creating a truly unforgettable wedding for the both of us. We couldn't of made our special day happen without your assistance. Our guests absolutely loved the Florist, Minister, and DJ that you recommended to us. They also were extremely fond of the party favors and overal wedding theme you designed for us. You are the greatest and we will most definitely refer you to all.
Johnny and Kelly
