Simply the best!

I don't even know if I have all the words to express how much I loved working with Melissa and Dee. Everyone knows the couple months leading up to your wedding are the most stressful and having Melissa there made it so much easier. She was hired as a day of coordinator, but she does WAY more than that sounds. (I feel like she should charge way more too) She was happy to read my crazy rambling emails when I just needed someone to reassure me that I was on the right track and had everything I needed. Her texts checking in on me definitely helped calm my nerves. On the day, Melissa and Dee went above and beyond! Everything went smoothly and my husband and I were completely oblivious to any mishaps that might have happened. She even went to our hotel room which was on site and tidied it up, placed leftover food in our mini fridge, lit a candle, and spread rose petals on the bed! The sweetest! I love her, she's the best, and you will definitely be in good hands with Melissa and her team.

The greatest wedding coordinator!

We hired Melissa for wedding coordination, and she and her assistant Dee were amazing! Everything Melissa was involved with felt totally seamless. Leading up to the wedding, she provided us with tools to help us get organized, which helped us plan for details we hadn’t even thought about. The day of the wedding, I felt like I never had to have a thought about a single detail, which was the most incredible feeling. My parents, who created a lot of the elements of our wedding, including the flowers and favors, are also still raving about her! Melissa also worked with my family to surprise us on the wedding day and she even put a band-aid on my foot for me when I got a blister from dancing - she really went above and beyond! You will not regret hiring her!!

Absolutely amazing wedding coordinator!

Melissa did such an amazing job as our wedding planner. She truly went above and beyond to make sure that our day went off flawlessly. She provided us with so much honest and helpful advice and was always so responsive via email and text. She was organized, thoughtful, attentive to detail and made sure that we were taken care of the entire day. She poured us wine at dinner, left us food in our hotel room for when we got back at the end of the night and even left out rose petals on our bed. You truly can't go wrong with Melissa - we would highly recommend Melissa as a wedding coordinator!

I worked with Blue Moon Event Planning on a recent wedding. I had an amazing experience. The wedding itself presented some logistical challenges, but the team at Blue Moon Event made sure that everything was clearly explained so that I could focus on the audio entertainment. Always attentive and helpful, I'd recommend Blue Moon Event Planning to everyone who's looking to make their event extra special!
