Melissa is absolutely amazing. My goal when I got married was to keep it as stress free as possible - I planned what I thought was a pretty simple wedding and I honestly didn't think I needed a planner or a coordinator. I was wrong. If Melissa had not been a part of our wedding, it would have been a mess. We turned cabins on the river into our venue so everything was pretty DIY and Melissa's input was invaluable. She helped me determine how much beer & wine to buy (we had the PERFECT amount), how to coordinate the food truck, helped me pick out my flowers, the list goes on and on. Melissa was there for our entire wedding weekend and she worked the whole time making sure everything was perfect. She not only made sure everything was set up & everything happened on time, but she went above and beyond. We did everything pretty non-traditional so we didn't have a time for speeches planned. She encouraged us to see if anyone wanted to say something, and I am SO GLAD she did. It was one of the most memorable moments of the evening. She also made sure to set up some really beautiful photo opportunities I never would have thought of - she even brought sparklers! On top of all of the above, she also did the flowers - I do not cry easily and the flowers were so gorgeous I cried. She was absolutely invaluable. All of my friends were saying things like "I need Melissa for my wedding" or "I wish I had had Melissa at my wedding." If you are wondering if you need a wedding planner or day of coordinator - you do. And you don't just need any planner, you need Melissa.Sent on 10/15/2018
