I cannot even begin to Thank Missy (Antonia) and her team enough. She is the reason my wedding day vision came to life. I was a destination bride, getting married in Paso Robles and she was there for me every step of the way. She made the entire process seamless, which given some obstacles that were thrown our way (which honestly, I wanted to throw in the towel a few times), she always supported me and somehow found the perfect solution. One Epic solution was a smoke bomb instead of sparklers...umm everyone should do that! It was AWESOME!
In addition to planning the perfect day, she and her assistant Lindsey executed the day like no other. I got to enjoy every second of my wedding day!!! How many Brides get to say that?!? I was given heads up on when and what was going on so I could prepare but I didn't have to have a timeline or schedule that I even had to think about. They kept everyone on track the entire day and given our group, that was no easy task.
I have been apart of a number of weddings as a guest or bridesmaid/Maid of Honor and I have been there to support my friends or family but I have also been working to set things up or breakdown when they didn't hire a professional planner. Even if I personally wasn't helping, I have seen mothers or other family members working instead of enjoying the day and spending those precious few moments with their loved. After 'working' at countless weddings I knew that there was no way I would ask this of a friend or family member. I wanted them to be able to share in every moment of that day with my husband and I. I know hiring ACE was the best decision of the entire wedding (minus marrying my husband) because everyone got to do just that!! We got to spend every second of our wedding day with the most important people in the world to us and all we had to do was just...show up!!! It was AWESOME! We tell everyone to hire ACE. It will be the best decision you make during you entire wedding process.

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.

I wouldn't have wanted to plan our wedding with anyone else.
It has taken me a long time to post this review, for no reason other than I haven’t been able to pinpoint the right words. Missy is my “cousin in love” as she calls it. I have always been a huge supporter of her business and her in general, to be honest. I have always worn her Team ACE t-shirts from coast to coast. She is loving, kind, supportive and I was sure that she carried all of that into her profession. It wasn’t until I got to experience Team ACE from the Bridal point of view that I saw how truly talented and dedicated she really is. Shane and I called with a wild idea to get married in Hawaii and we needed her help. We live in Idaho, she is based in VA, and our families are in CA and OR. Despite that, within 72 hours she had a full page of suggestions for venues, with “just a little google search” she said (eyeroll). She was diligent in making sure my vision was understood (even on days that I wasn’t sure I understood it). She was knowledgeable in how she spoke about other event professionals that she felt would serve me in the capacities that I expected. Her communication was always clear, and if I was unsure there was never a limit on the number of times and ways she could explain things. Missy always took the time to answer when I forgot about the time change and called too late at night, her team shipped us linens and Small details that I was heart- set on. She even helped guide me and encourage me to make decisions about what details and traditions were the most important to me, to maximize the moments we would love on our big day. Missy was never more than a phone call or FaceTime away; even on the days I looked a hot mess- she never even laughed. Team ACE was a HUGE part of Shane and I’s start to the rest of our lives, and we would not have been able to have the beautiful, elegant, simple wedding we had both imagined without them. Team ACE is a service beyond any I could have ever expected, and I am so grateful to now be able to support her as an ACE Bride, not just a cousin in love.
I always know my clients are in amazing hands when I hear Antonia and Team ACE are behind the scenes making their wedding dreams come true-- from start to finish! With great professionalism and experience, Antonia is top-notch when it comes to not only taking care of her couples, but also her local wedding community. :)
Missy is a remarkable colleague. Her passion and professionalize is a joy work with.
