The day we met Melissa I knew we had the right person. She was instantly so warm, understanding and focused. She knew what questions to ask, and how to balance all of the opinions (seriously so many opinions). Right away, she was insanely helpful in finding vendors, even setting up appointments and going all day with us back to back. Throughout the coordination process I truly handed her the reigns, she has excellent style and is a great listener so I knew she would make good decisions. It was only a few weeks into working with her when I knew that I could trust her with anything. By the time the wedding came she was so much more then a coordinator. I trusted her completely to do everything that needed to get done, and to manage my emotions on top of that. She handled every single hurdle with grace, solved problems before I even knew they existed and made sure the day was perfect. The day of the wedding everything just happened like magic around me, and I know it was all because of Melissa. Truly, I didn’t think of ANYTHING except for marrying the love of my life. I cannot thank her enough for paving the way for me to have a truly enjoyable wedding day. I think my feelings about Melissa can be summed up in the fact that on the day of the rehearsal, I was the most excited to see her, over any other friends and family, because it meant that my job was done and I could just relax. When I talk to other brides now, the #1 piece of advice I give is to hire a coordinator, I cannot imagine putting our wedding money to a better use then hiring Melissa. Plus, she helped keep us in budget with all her suggestions and decision making. Budget for a coordinator, then hire Melissa. You will not regret it.

Thank you so so much for all the hard work you put into making our wedding go perfectly! I don’t know what we would’ve done without you. Your work was absolutely outstanding and I am forever grateful for all the things you did to go the extra mile. You helped me relax and enjoy everything. 

You are amazing!

Melissa was absolutely amazing from start to finish! I read that a wedding coordinator would be our best investment and it could not have rang more true! Melissa was very attentive to our needs and made sure to ask questions and make certain things were done the way we wanted.

Throughout the process, Melissa kept me grounded and excited about the wedding. When she delivered our timeline for the rehearsal and wedding, I was floored by the level of organization and detail. My vendors were at the venue on time, set up went on seamlessly, and I was able to relax all day. I can’t think of a single thing that went wrong that day.

Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we have Melissa to thank for so much of that! 5 stars is not enough - best decision ever!

Melissa was such a pleasure to work with! As the photographer for the wedding, she kept things on schedule and was my right hand man. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and Griffin Event Management perfectly produced the romantic vibe the client desired. I am already looking forward to working with this team again!
