Highly Recommended

We would highly recommend Melissa as the officiant for your wedding.  She is proffesional, organized and punctual while all maintaining a fun attitude allowing you to relax knowing you're in good hands.  Melissa is very well spoken and clear with her words making her the perfect choice as officiant.  We received many compliments (on Melissa's behalf) from our guests during our cocktail hour, reception and in the days to follow on how well she did and how nice of a ceremony it was.  Melissa has an extensive network of wedding related services and vendors in the Cincinnati area which was comforting because she already knew many of our other vendors through past experiences or through her position on the Reading Bridal District Committee.  Thank You to Melissa and hope this review can help you in your decision that knowing she is the best choice.

Best wedding coordinator in ohio

Hiring Melissa was the best decision of our wedding planning process. She is extremely knowledgeable of the industry and provided great vendor suggestions for us. She also has great relationships with a lot of the reputable vendors in southern Ohio, therefore really got the most out of everything. She took the stress out of the day of coordinating for my family and I. I am a bit of a control freak, and as soon as I met her I knew I could give my trust in her completely. Picture J.Lo from the movie the “wedding planner”and times that by 1,000. A few weeks before the wedding, she took over communication with the vendors which really helped me focus on other things. Every single request, big or small she made it happen with no questions asked. She also helped guide the day of ceremony and reception to find what flow was best for my husband and I. When problems would arise the day of, she had a solution in about 10-60 seconds. I am not kidding. There were probably a few other hiccups that happened, that I didn’t even know about because Melissa was on top of it. She has the talent of thinking 5 steps ahead and I really could not thank her and her team more. Melissa felt like another bridesmaid as I felt she always had my back during the wedding weekend. Everyone involved in the wedding, from the groomsmen to family members loved working with her and said how wonderful she is as well. I would recommend Melissa to anyone that is looking for coordinator or planning services. You definitely want her on your team!

Melissa and my daughter connected on the Knot boards during wedding planning. I am a Wedding Invitation Consultant and former hall decorator, who then contracted with Melissa's Beautiful Memories to cover the chair backs for my daughter's wedding reception. Melissa did a wonderful job of covering and sashing the chairbacks, and returned to collect the covers at the end of the evening. She is very professional, and, although we did not use her services for coordinating, I am guessing she would be wonderful in this capacity as well. I give her 5 stars!
