A Must for Your Wedding
I have to start by saying if you’re reading this and you’re unsure whether you want to invest in a wedding planner for your big day, my now husband and I were in your shoes but I’m here to tell you that Melissa is BEYOND WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY. From the minute we sat down with her at our first meeting, we knew we had to have her! She took care of everything you can think of (and made it look easy) and we always knew she was a quick email or phone call away. Having her in our corner made us feel so at ease and allowed us to enjoy every single moment of the planning process AND wedding day itself. At the eleventh hour, I had to find a new makeup/hair team and Melissa had a list of available artists she trusted/worked with before in LESS than 24 hours. I was so worried about making sure I brought all my bridesmaids their robes and gifts that I forgot my own, and Melissa without hesitation picked it up and delivered to me the morning of. She took care of our big exit (a pedicab through sparkly downtown Portland back to our hotel-so beautiful!). She offers so much creative input in whatever ideas or vision you have. Most importantly though, she continually reminded us that this is OUR day, that what we wanted came first and before anything else, and made us feel like gold. These are only a few examples of how Melissa went above and beyond. The without-a-doubt best decision we made for our wedding!Sent on 11/09/2018

Fantastic wedding planner
Melissa was an absolutely AMAZING wedding planner!! She worked tirelessly with my husband and I throughout our engagement process to make sure we had our perfect day. Countless requests, questions and momentary freak outs were responded to promptly and efficiently. She took care of every single little detail I could possibly think of! Looking back our our wedding day, I cannot stress the vital role Melissa played. She planned the entire day of schedule, helped coordinate the vendors, and made sure everything went smoothly. I had no idea what was going on behind the scenes and that was WONDERFUL. Melissa made our dream wedding a reality!! She is kind, incredibly organized and responsive, and knows weddings like the back of her hand. I can not recommend her enough!!Sent on 11/28/2018

Melissa is an amazing organized kind coordinator. She did so many tasks well. Most brilliant idea Melissa had: photographer took bridal party pics prior to ceremony. So only needed family pics after. This was huge help as it was outdoor ceremony in high 90's. Thank God we had her. She made everything go so smooth & well.Sent on 08/03/2018
