Stress Free Wedding Day!
As mother of the groom, I must say the best decision was having Missy by the bride and groom’s side during the entire process. She was available every step of the way to answer questions and keep the planning process on track. Missy coordinated the vendors, photos, seating and *thousands* of other details with ease. (Seriously, who know there were so many details!?!? LOL) The best feeling was going into the big day knowing everything was taken care of and if an exception came up, knowing Missy had it covered. Wedding day was 100% stress free and so much FUN! Missy’s planning expertise, follow through and advice was key to a successful day and we can’t thank her and the ACE team enough!Sent on 05/31/2019

from a former planner & type A personality:
to say that this lady & her gals are the s*** is an understatement. I reached out to Missy about a week after getting engaged. she had just gotten back from Hawaii & I needed a little more insight into the world that is Hawaii & destination planning. as a former planner I knew I needed someone highly recommended & who would make us a priority. Missy was all of those things & more! she instantly got to work on a venue & got all the balls rolling for me right away! thank God for this woman! she handled countless phone calls for me (a 6 hour time difference & working 2 jobs don't go together). Missy most days could read my mind & know what I was thinking before I knew how to put it in words. we would have weekly emails going back & forth with where I was in the planning process. she would send me picture of things to see what my thought were for signs & decor. she created a personal check list to keep my head on straight & keep us on track. helped me plan a welcome luau for all of our peeps & keep all the names together. so fast forward a year & a month: Missy & her hubby fly to Hawaii, the week of their anniversary & their oldest son's birthday to celebrate me & my hubby. these two people were there every day, every step of the way to help us get down the aisle. it poured the day of our outdoor wedding & Missy & hubby rearranged tables & chairs to make things work. they sweated in 80+ degree humid weather & kept smiles on their faces the whole time. I never once had to worry if something was wrong, they had everything under control. Missy made sure that everyone was happy & Christopher & I could just enjoy our friends & family. I told Missy the one thing I'm gonna miss is the constant emails & text messages. & she told my husband now we can all be "real life friends". this woman started off as a kicka** planner I needed to help me plan my wedding & she's become a kicka** lady I need in my life as a friend. thank you Mrs. Christianson for all your help. I would pay for you & your services over & over again.Sent on 10/22/2019
long story short: if you're planning a wedding, near or far, you want a wedding planner. but if you want someone who's gonna put in the work & make YOUR vision come true & put you & your beloved first, you want Missy. as a former planner myself, I never had to worry about a thing & Missy is the most thorough lady ever.
ps. I'm sorry I was perpetually late in Hawaii. thank you for not hating me =)

BEST Entire Experience
Missy and the ACE team were beyond AMAZING!!!! From the beginning to the very end, she was there and always two steps ahead. My wedding was six months from when I was engaged, and she made everything happen. I didn’t have time research vendors or worry about details, but she handled everything better than I could’ve imagined. She has wonderful vendors and people that she works with and recommends, and I was always impressed by their creativity. I got married at a new venue and she was there to make sure everything was done correctly. Despite the newness of the venue, Missy made sure everything was on track. She made me feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the entire wedding planning process and I could not ask for better service. She was open to ideas, and she always knew the best way to execute them to fit into the vision. I love espresso and she made sure that there was an espresso cart during the reception! I could not speak more highly of her and her team’s professionalism and personal dedication. My husband and I were beyond grateful and happy with how she helped us throughout the entire wedding process and we seriously had the best time and memories from our day.Sent on 10/18/2018
