    Exceptional Events is Exceptional!

    Melanie Hill Anderson and her team at Exceptional Events are truly Exceptional! We worked with her for over a year and her advice, vendor referrals/contacts were SO helpful. She was always very professional, attentive, patient and kind to us. She was with us on bridal shoot day and ALL day on wedding today. Her team made sure that everything was just how we wanted it! As the Mother of the Bride, I highly recommend Exceptional Events!

    A Great Decision

    Exceptional Events was the key ingredient to such a beautiful wedding and fun reception. Knowing all the details of the big day were in professional hands allowed this MOB to truly relax and to enjoy the day. They were wonderful to work with and easy to contact whenever there was a question. I can't recommend them enough. It was the best single decision we made in the planning process.

    Exceptional Events's reply:

    Thanks very much Laurie for your sweet & kind words!!! We so enjoyed working with you and your awesome family and are delighted you all were able to relax and enjoy the day! Melanie

    Melanie and her team were phenomenal!

    Melanie has been absolutely incredible throughout the entire wedding planning journey! From start to finish, she was always keeping us on track, assisting with vendors, all while remaining organized and calm. She was extremely patient and flexible with us, as well. Melanie has developed really great relationships in the wedding industry and is able to recommend some great vendors for every price range. She is easy to talk to and very outgoing. I loved working with Melanie throughout the entire process. There are so many things that I didn’t know about the wedding day and she would offer great recommendations/advice. I 10/10 recommend getting a wedding planner to help ease you through your day. And Melanie would always be my first choice! She commits a lot of time to help make the day as special as it can be. I always imagined my wedding since I was a little girl. I oohed and awed at the dresses, venues, flowers, etc. Melanie and her team helped this dream of mine become a reality and I am so grateful for that!!

    Exceptional Events's reply:

    Thanks so much for your very kind words Courtney!!!! It was an absolute joy working with you and Alec and your amazing families. I wish you an infinite amount of love and happiness!!! Melanie
