    Wonderful!

    Melissa was such a pleasure to work with! First and foremost, her support during our covid postponement was unparalleled. I always felt like I could call her and ask her questions, share concerns, and resolutions were always made to any hiccups. Once we got our new wedding date plans in ordered she got down to business! I’m definitely an overly involved bride, and as a project manager for work, I tend to try to wrap my arms around every detail, I like to have control of things. Melissa handled all my excessive communication and details with absolute grace and support! She always made me feel like everything would be absolutely perfect, and it was! Our wedding was the most magical evening of our lives. But where Melissa really shined was in her day of coordination. To be pulled in a million directions, by a million people with a million personalities and maintain her kindness, professionalism and grace is truly remarkable. Any issue that came up (which were nearly none since everything went so well leading up to the day) boom she was there with the fix. And every time I checked in or asked how things were going, she always assured me everything was great and I know it was. Melissa has made me feel like she has our back, I knew/know that if there was any concern or a situation we didn’t know how to navigate, she always had a solution and suggest that had our best interest in mind. She is incredibly valuable! We had some wind issues that made our napkin settings and table chart get a little wild and she was on it getting it taken care of. When she wasn’t by our side getting us through the program of the evening she was answering guests questions, helping all the vendors, bussing tables, moving centerpieces, adjusting decor, coordinating the schedule of events, setting things up, tearing things down, I swear she probably walked 15 miles just in the 6 hours of our wedding. Then, at the end of the night, she literally disassembled the reception in record time! This was so valuable to us as it gave us time to enjoy the final moments of our night. We got to dance around and be silly, really visit with the few remaining guests, have great conversations with our vendors all while she did the work of cleaning up. Those last few moments are ones we really relished in because we knew our night was over, and having her there was just such a weight lifted off our shoulders. We could not be happier with how our wedding went, it was the most special night of our lives and we are so thankful we had Melissa there to help make it such a memorable evening.

    Experience is everything!

    Melissa has so much experience! As a wedding vendor myself, working with her is such a joy & makes me comfortable sending couples to her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a planner- planners with more experience just make everything go more smoothly!

  • Dexter Lo Photography Wedding Photographers

    The team of San Diego wedding planners at "I Do... Weddings" is absolutely fantastic! I've photographed multiple weddings and worked with all three coordinators (Melissa, Rachel, and Lindsay) and couldn't be more delighted with the experiences. They are very efficient, knowledgable, and calm under pressure. Best of all, they are extremely likable, and that is a big selling point for brides and grooms who want to be stress-free on their wedding day and want their guests to enjoy themselves to the fullest.

  • Reams Photo Wedding Photographers

    Melissa and her team are great! We really enjoyed working with her- she is calm, professional, and gets things done! Plus, she's super easy to be around. Such a friendly, relaxed presence!

  • The Creative Music DJ Inc. Wedding DJs

    I've DJ'd weddings for many of Melissa's clients, and it is always a great time working with her and her staff. Besides being organized and able to adapt to changes easily, she treats the vendors she's working with with respect, understands our needs, and helps us to be able to be able to provide the best service for our mutual clients. That's what it's all about, right?
