    Megan is amazing

    Megan is probably one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. She is extremely organized and helped me come to my ultimate decision of having a destination wedding over a traditional one. Without her assistance I wouldn’t be planning the destination wedding of my dreams in St Lucia for half the price of a traditional wedding. We found Megan on WeddingWire and I was apprehensive about just looking online for someone. I can definitely say the wedding gods were watching over me because she was truly a gift and exceeds our expectations. Don’t be fooled by people saying it’s bad to hire someone who isn’t a family or friend referral. After my experience with Megan I will always have her in my back pocket for family and friends as a referral. So happy we took the chance and hit the JACKPOT! BOOK MEGAN!

    She CLEARLY loves what she does

    In August 2021, my (now) husband and I had gone to a number of weddings and, recently engaged ourselves, were beginning to look at wedding venues for our own nuptials. We originally planned on getting married in September 2022 but after attending so many weddings and already feeling stressed from wedding planning, we quickly felt burnt out and overwhelmed. We decided having a big wedding wasn't for us and didn't feel like a long engagement was right for us either. Ultimately, we felt it would be better to have a small ceremony sooner rather than wait a year. (When you know, you know amIright??) With that in mind, I spammed the wedding planner community to see if anyone would take us on as a client and help us plan a small wedding in a 2 month timeframe. (We decided October would be an ideal month to have our anniversary in, ergo, 2 months to plan.) Megan texted me right away and said if I was truly aiming for October, we needed to get to work planning especially with how busy wedding vendors have been from all the backlog COVID-19 created. After a quick introductory call with Megan and the greenlight from my hubby, we went into contract for a small (10-20 person) micro ceremony on the beach on October 17, 2021.

    Only problem was, I changed my mind about a week or two later. The vision I had for my wedding now involved 50 guests and a full fledged wedding ceremony and reception. I asked Megan if it was possible. (One of my favorite things about Megan is she is SO direct and upfront. You know that her "yes" means "yes", "no" means "no" and "you're being ridiculous" means...well you get the point.) Megan kindly let me know that that was not within our scope of work and I was asking quite a bit of her BUT that we could pull it off if that's really what would make us happy. With that, we revised our contract from a micro ceremony package to a full wedding.

    From start to finish, Megan was kind, professional, encouraging, responsive and just the absolute best person to have in charge when you are planning something as important (and stressful) as your wedding. She brought in a number of her own vendors (florist, violinist, photographer, videographer, EmCee...) and they were all incredible! She made everything so easy and I am forever grateful to have gotten to spend those two months planning with her. I would recommend Megan and her vendors a million times over. Our wedding was so special and beautiful and I could not have done it without our extremely talented team. My husband and I are one of few couple I know who ended up actually enjoying the wedding planning process...but that's probably because our biggest concerns were remembering the choreography for our first dance and planning our honeymoon since Megan and her team had everything else HANDLED. Seriously, do yourself a favor and give mah girl a call!

    100% satisfied

    I had the extreme pleasure of having Megan as my wedding planner. It took me 18 months to plan my wedding and she kept me calm every step of the way. She was a huge help and overall hiring her was the best decision I made out of all the vendors I hired. My wedding was beyond amazing and everyone was in aww and it's all thanks to her. I received great comments and compliments about Megan from the other vendors I hired and they were all very impressed with her effective communication. I highly, highly recommend hiring Megan. You won't regret it. Thank you Megan for everything. After 18 months, you are definitely part of the family.
