About

While pursuing a degree in accounting at Loyola Marymount University, Holly knew there was something missing. Never one to settle, Holly decided to pursue a career in wedding coordination. In her senior year at LMU, after persistence, she landed an internship with celebrity wedding planner, Mary Dann and fell in love with the business. Under the wing of one of the most sought-after wedding planners in Southern California, paired with her experience managing a small event site in San Juan Capistrano, Holly learned the ropes of the industry and soon decided to start her own practice. With an education in business, experience in luxury events and a passion for pleasing her clients, Holly has mastered all aspects of the planning process efficiently. In addition, her enthusiasm and compassion for clients is contagious and makes brides and grooms feel at ease under her care. Her high level of organization allows clients to pass on the planning responsibilities to ensure a beautiful stress free day.

    Fantastic Wedding Coordinator

    I can’t say enough great things about Melissa. She truly is a gem and I recommend her highly. Throughout the entire planning process, Melissa is thorough, attentive, and timely. She is very quick to respond to emails and texts and is detailed when responding to questions. On the wedding day itself, Melissa was fantastic. She orchestrated the event so well by ensuring that all vendors were properly directed, that the day was flowing timely and according to the timeline, and by making the day seem so effortless to myself and the guests. Melissa does so much behind the scenes in order to make the wedding go as smoothly as possible, and her efficiency is unmatched. So many of my married friends warned me to expect hiccups, but I can say that we experienced none and our wedding went so smoothly all thanks to Melissa. Throughout it all, Melissa keeps such a calming and comforting demeanor which kept me so relaxed. We are so appreciative of her time and effort. And again, I can’t recommend Melissa enough.

    Beyond Amazing

    Melissa was over and above the best thing that happened to us when planning our daughter's wedding. She was always there during the planning stages with vendor recommendations, decoration ideas and all around great advice. She was even more amazing on the day of the wedding. She made everything happen with such ease and grace and we were all able to just enjoy the day. All the details were carried out and handled to perfection. We would not do another wedding without her that is for sure. Anyone looking for a classy, organized and all around perfect wedding planner - Melissa is for you!

    Amazing Wedding Planner!

    Holly is amazing! I'm a videographer and I worked with her at Greg and Marcy's wedding at Franciscan Gardens, she was nothing but amazing to work with from the weeks leading up to the day to the day of, and even after! She made the wedding run so smoothly, she cared about every detail, and made sure the bride and groom were good to go all day without making them feel stressed or under pressure! 10/10 recommend Holly and her team!
