    The best wedding planner ever!

    Melissa and her team did an outstanding job through and through. I found Melissa’s “Just The Two of Us” package on Instagram when they first launched. The”Just The Two of Us” package was so much more than I could have ask for. From the planning phase to the day of execution, Melissa provided constant support and communication throughout the wedding planning process. We had such a great experience. Melissa was very responsive whenever I had questions. The vendor team that was recommended by Melissa was outstanding and executed flawlessly on our wedding vision!!!!!
    Thank you Melissa for planning and coordinating our wedding. We really appreciate your ability to take our wedding vision and turn it into a stunning reality!!!!!! You provided everything we could wish for in a wedding planner and so much more!!!!!!!!!

    The Perfect Wedding Planner!

    It took us a while to get this review posted because we wanted it to be PERFECT! Because that’s how we feel about Melissa and the B Astonished team. They are perfection! From the day planning started to the end of wedding day Melissa and her team were patient, professional, prompt. and understanding. During the planning process, often times when it came to décor, we could not pull the trigger on making a decision (I’m indecisive!) but Melissa knew exactly how to 1. Create a vision for us and 2. Help us execute and bring the vision to life - all while accommodating our budget.

    When covid hit, we panicked. We could not decide whether to move forward with the wedding or to postpone. Melissa provided us with all the pros and cons of both scenarios so that we could make the best decision for us. Ultimately, we decided to postpone. Although our wedding was postponed, Melissa did not miss a beat when it came to managing all the vendor changes regarding the new date and details. With her handling all our details we felt so confident that our wedding day would run flawlessly. Every single one of her recommended vendors provided the same level of top-notch dedication and professionalism towards preparing for our big day. Fast forward to wedding day, things seemed to flow perfectly! Not that there weren’t hiccups (because what wedding doesn’t have them!?) but when there were, we never knew or heard about it until after the fact because Melissa and her team had already taken care of it. Also thank you to Jenny on the B Astonished Events Team. She was by my side the entire day and made sure I had anything I needed or asked for. From carrying my shoes to brining me champagne to calm my nerves - I couldn’t have made it through the day without you!

    To Melissa, Blair, Jenny, and the entire B Astonished Events team - THANK YOU! Our wedding felt like a dream! We have already decided if we ever have another big event, we will be calling you!

    To anyone reading and searching for an event planner – if you want your event to be stunning, you have to choose B Astonished Events!

    Exceptional Service

    From the moment I signed my contract with Melissa and her team, it’s been a complete blessing. Melissa was so hands on and knowledgeable and exceeded my expectations. She was patient for the both of us during the recent challenging times. She helped make my dream come true. All I wanted was an intimate wedding that was a reflection of me and my husband’s personality and she delivered!! The day of the wedding her team was beyond helpful and I can’t thank them enough.
