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!
ME Events was such a joy to work with. They are a friendly team and they always seem to exceed our expectiation in their quality of work. ME events helped plan, create, and designed our wedding decor/details and they also made sure that the program/sequence of events ran smoothly the day/night of our event. All our guests couldn't stop raving about our special day; from the decor, to our centerpieces, to the special details, and to how smoothe the program went the day/night of our event. Our special day was perfect wih the the helping hand of ME Events.
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。
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!!!!
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!
ME Events and Design made our wedding a dream come true, even though we were planning the wedding from another continent, it seemed like they were right next door.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!

Melissa's attention to detail is outstanding. Her planning of my daughter's wedding was excellent to every detail. My daughter and I are delighted with her service. Melissa was very responsive to all of our calls and inquiries even when is came to last minute changes and her ideas and suggestions to our particular problems help us immeasurably. Without reservation I recommend ME Event and Design, their value of service to price is excellent.
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.
