    Melissa created the perfect Gothic Wedding

    f you're looking for a wedding planner, here you have a team of them! We thought that we could take care of everything all by ourselves, but we were wrong! Melissa and I clicked instantly. After our first call, I couldn't wait to work with her. She let us be super creative and funky with our Gothic Themed wedding, plus she took the entire concept and nailed it. We also had her do our flowers because she completely understood our vision. From every vendor she recommended to every small detail, everything was so amazing. I can't get over how spooktacular our wedding day was! I absolutely loved working with her and the entire team.

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.

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?
