About

A Fabulous Wedding Awaits....

At Events by Melissa, our goal is to give you the wedding you've always dreamed of. A wedding that reflects your unique personality and style. A wedding that you and your guests will delight in.

As couples begin thinking about their wedding, they are often confused over how much to spend, where to obtain specialized services, and how to choose vendors. These worries often mount as quickly as the cost of the wedding. After the euphoria wears off and the reality settles in, it's shocking to discover how much preparation is involved. Couples are faced with decisions about everything from invitation wording to planning their honeymoon. Couples often find they want to experience professional help.

Not long ago, a wedding planner was thought of as a luxury, only used by the wealthy. Now a planner is an essential element of a well - planned affair. Being experienced in negotiating contracts with caterers, florists, photographers and other suppliers; the wedding planner saves you valuable time and money. The planner can take advantage of discounts not available to private parties and avoid costly mistakes, while turning your dreams into reality.

    Melissa was very helpful with helping me to plan my wedding. When I first started to plan, I didnt think that I needed a wedding planner but I was very wrong! It is a lot of work but Melissa helped to keep my stress low and helped me do so much.

    Caitlin,

    I have to admit (at first) planning a wedding for twins for a month apart I thought was going to an amazing challenge. However after meeting the both of you I found this was going to be amazing accomplishment for me and my team. I wish you and Jerome a life time of happiness!!

    Melissa is very professional and willing to to help when ever she is needed! I am very happy with her services. Personally, I like to take control quite a bit, and when needed...Melissa was able to step back but also give me advice when I needed. I would definitely recommend her to others who need a helping hand and don't want the headache of things going wrong on the day of their wedding. Thank you for all your help to make my day special! I wish we could do it all over again!
