Melissa and the entire team at Boutique Event Planning are simply incredible. My husband, parents, and I could not have asked for a better wedding planning team. We contracted with them for our fall Malibu wedding just this last October and the whole experience was a dream come true. Melissa has such great and unique ideas to truly turn your event into something that you and all your guests will be talking about for a lifetime. Her attention to detail and ability to stay in your budget, or even come out under budget it amazing! Additionally, Melissa and her team were so comfortable to work with. We had constant communication and I never had to be afraid of being honest with her. It was obvious that her whole team, and all her vendors, really love the work that they do and really had my best interest in mind. By the end of it, it felt like I was working with some of my best friends. It's because we contracted with Boutique Event Planning that our wedding was smooth and flawless. Even with dealing with last minute stressors I never had to worry! The weather forecast changed literally the morning of my wedding to say it was going to rain and Melissa and her team was able to show up hours early with over a hundred matching umbrellas and panchos for my guests, and able to arrange all my vendors to get there early so we could get our pictures done before the rain. As stressful as that could have been, the whole day turned out magical and the rain couldn't stop it from being the best day of our lives and the best party for our guests. There are not enough great things I can say about the Boutique Event Plannkng team. I am just so thankful they were my wedding planning team and I would highly reccomend them to anyone!Sent on 01/02/2016

I can’t imagine how this wedding would’ve gone without Melissa. Her knowledge of Catalina Island, the vendors, the logistics, and overall what to expect was incredibly valuable. She was organized, flexible, and fun, all at the same time! I have left the experience wishing she could help manage my business and even my home/personal life!Sent on 05/17/2019

Melissa and her team were wonderful! They are so friendly, easy to work with and will do their very best to make your wedding dreams come true. I can honestly say that my wedding would not have ran as smoothly without them. Speaking with my family, bridal party and vendors I realized that Melissa and her staff were all over the place making sure every wedding detail was accounted for. Furthermore, they were approachable to everyone and were professional in the most stressful times. My husband and I enjoyed every minute with Melissa from planning to execution. I highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking or even considering a wedding coordinator.Sent on 12/30/2016
To plan, prepare and execute a wedding without a hitch, you know it's critical to work with a team of vendors that take their work as seriously and handle it as sensitively as you do. One such professional we love to work with is wedding planner, Alijah Gunsaulus with Boutique Event Planning! Alijah is as prepared a planner as they come - highly knowledgeable, creative, timely and super accessible. An excellent communicator, she stays perfectly in tune with her clients, consistent with understanding, logic and objectivity. With Alijah's expertise comes a genuine kindness, quality of care, and love for her work and clients. We highly recommend you seek her assistance. Matter of fact, we can't wait for the next opportunity to work with she and Boutique Event Planning again ourselves!
