  • As mother of the groom, I must say the best decision was having Missy by the bride and groom’s side during the entire process. She was available every step of the way to answer questions and keep the planning process on track. Missy coordinated the vendors, photos, seating and *thousands* of other details with ease. (Seriously, who know there were so many details!?!? LOL) The best feeling was going into the big day knowing everything was taken care of and if an exception came up, knowing Missy had it covered. Wedding day was 100% stress free and so much FUN! Missy’s planning expertise, follow through and advice was key to a successful day and we can’t thank her and the ACE team enough!

  • to say that this lady & her gals are the s*** is an understatement. I reached out to Missy about a week after getting engaged. she had just gotten back from Hawaii & I needed a little more insight into the world that is Hawaii & destination planning. as a former planner I knew I needed someone highly recommended & who would make us a priority. Missy was all of those things & more! she instantly got to work on a venue & got all the balls rolling for me right away! thank God for this woman! she handled countless phone calls for me (a 6 hour time difference & working 2 jobs don't go together). Missy most days could read my mind & know what I was thinking before I knew how to put it in words. we would have weekly emails going back & forth with where I was in the planning process. she would send me picture of things to see what my thought were for signs & decor. she created a personal check list to keep my head on straight & keep us on track. helped me plan a welcome luau for all of our pee...

  • Missy and the ACE team were beyond AMAZING!!!! From the beginning to the very end, she was there and always two steps ahead. My wedding was six months from when I was engaged, and she made everything happen. I didn’t have time research vendors or worry about details, but she handled everything better than I could’ve imagined. She has wonderful vendors and people that she works with and recommends, and I was always impressed by their creativity. I got married at a new venue and she was there to make sure everything was done correctly. Despite the newness of the venue, Missy made sure everything was on track. She made me feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the entire wedding planning process and I could not ask for better service. She was open to ideas, and she always knew the best way to execute them to fit into the vision. I love espresso and she made sure that there was an espresso cart during the reception! I could not speak more highly of her and her team’s pr... Read more

  • Missy and the ACE staff did an amazing job planning and coordinating our wedding. From our first meet and greet to our wedding day, they were on top of everything and took so much stress off of us! We contacted Missy four months out from our wedding date and are so thankful that we did. Looking back at how much planning and detail went into our wedding, there is no way any of it would have turned as great as it did if we didn’t have ACE. A few things we loved about Missy and the ACE staff was their commitment to making our day exactly how we wanted it to be, attention to detail, and their experience. When it came to our wedding day, being able to relax and know everything was being taken care of with the vendors and guests was incredible. We can’t thank Missy and the ACE staff enough for all of the hard work they put into making our wedding day so perfect and stress free for us.

  • It has taken me a long time to post this review, for no reason other than I haven’t been able to pinpoint the right words. Missy is my “cousin in love” as she calls it. I have always been a huge supporter of her business and her in general, to be honest. I have always worn her Team ACE t-shirts from coast to coast. She is loving, kind, supportive and I was sure that she carried all of that into her profession. It wasn’t until I got to experience Team ACE from the Bridal point of view that I saw how truly talented and dedicated she really is. Shane and I called with a wild idea to get married in Hawaii and we needed her help. We live in Idaho, she is based in VA, and our families are in CA and OR. Despite that, within 72 hours she had a full page of suggestions for venues, with “just a little google search” she said (eyeroll). She was diligent in making sure my vision was understood (even on days that I wasn’t sure I understood it). She was knowledgeable in how she spoke a... Read more

  • Where do I begin?? Team ACE is in a league of its own! I get asked all the time "How were you SO calm on your wedding day?" and the answer is simple. I fully trusted in Missy and Team ACE to make sure all details of my big day were executed to perfection. Let's just say I have been to A LOT of weddings. I wanted to find a venue that was different. I wanted a venue that I hadn't seen a million of my friends get married in. After describing my vision to Missy she recommended The Historic Post Office in Hampton, VA. My husband and I went for a site visit and jaws dropped. It was absolutely perfect. As if she was reading my mind. She definitely knows all things wedding. She always made sure to check in and schedule meetings with me to ensure I wasn't ever overwhelmed and that I wasn't rushed in the planning process. She always had the best vendor recommendations for me and asked ALL of the questions that I would never have thought to ask! On the day of my wedding, the Team ACE girls ... Read more

  • We had the most wonderful experience working with Missy of Antonia Christianson Events. She planned my sisters wedding five years ago and when I got engaged, she was the only person we considered because of our previous experience with her. She gets to know the couple and the families and really puts her heart into every event to make the couples vision come to life. She offers expert and honest insight, remains calm in times of stress, has a "can-do, we will make it happen" attitude like I've never seen and quickly adjusts on the fly if needed. She helped make our weekend seamless and stress-free and our wedding the best day of our lives!

  • I moved to a completely different city during my wedding planning process, but Missy worked closely with my mom to ensure my vision for my wedding day became a reality! Even from miles away, Missy helped with every detail, vendor meeting, and made each Pinterest vision come to fruition. The cool thing about Missy (and there are a lot of cool things ;) ) is that she creates everyone's wedding differently. She looked at all of my different ideas (and there were a ton of them) and created an absolute masterpiece! I'm the type of gal who knows what she wants, but can't always make a decision or clearly articulate my ideas. Missy and ACE did not disappoint and made sure the rehearsal and our wedding day went smoothly - even with the rain and all! I would highly recommend Missy and Team ACE to anyone and everyone.

  • My wedding went off without a hitch, and that's largely due to Missy and the ACE team! Missy truly cares about her clients and it is evident in everything she does. I was not a local bride and I'm quite indecisive when it comes to just about everything. Missy was so helpful and did not make decisions for me, but helped me evaluate different options and offered recommendations so that I could make great informed decisions. Her recommendations by the way, were all spot on! She made being a non local bride a breeze. She always made time for me (especially on my random trips in town) and we chatted like we've known each other for years. I never felt neglected or less than because I was not local. On the day of the wedding, Missy transformed into Wonder Woman! She went above and beyond to make sure our day was smooth and stress free - and not just for us but for our entire bridal party (and guests!). When my flower girl had to use the restroom during the middle of our ceremony, Missy to... Read more

  • I cannot gush enough about Missy and her team at ACE! My now-husband and I are not the most creative people but we are perfectionists and had broad-sweeping visions of what we wanted our wedding to be like ("secret garden", "traditional/ colonial", "elegant/ classy", "bring the outdoors in", "bright autumn") though we couldn't put together the pieces and details to create that vision. I had wanted to have our reception on a plantation overlooking the water, but as none were elderly friendly and my grandmother was the reason I had my wedding where I grew up in Williamsburg, I switched to the Williamsburg Lodge ballroom. But we really didn't want a Marriott ballroom looking wedding, though that is exactly what the Williamsburg Lodge is. So I specifically was looking for a planner that could help with design and not just organization. ACE was PERFECT. Missy took what we said and put together an amazing vendor team that brought our vision to life! We went through several designs as Missy... Read more

  • I cannot even begin to Thank Missy (Antonia) and her team enough. She is the reason my wedding day vision came to life. I was a destination bride, getting married in Paso Robles and she was there for me every step of the way. She made the entire process seamless, which given some obstacles that were thrown our way (which honestly, I wanted to throw in the towel a few times), she always supported me and somehow found the perfect solution. One Epic solution was a smoke bomb instead of sparklers...umm everyone should do that! It was AWESOME! In addition to planning the perfect day, she and her assistant Lindsey executed the day like no other. I got to enjoy every second of my wedding day!!! How many Brides get to say that?!? I was given heads up on when and what was going on so I could prepare but I didn't have to have a timeline or schedule that I even had to think about. They kept everyone on track the entire day and given our group, that was no easy task. I have been a... Read more

  • Planning a wedding is such an intimidating process. There are so many checklists and timelines that can be overwhelming if you don't have the help of an experienced event planner. Missy and the ACE team was by far the best decision we made in making my daughter's dream wedding a reality. She knows the best vendors in the business and can steer you in the direction you need to create a team who can bring your vision to life. In addition to being a respected professional by all, Missy is down to earth, easy to talk to and quick to respond to any email or phone call. The rehearsal and wedding day could not have been any smoother due to Missy's months of planning and attention to detail. Whether it's planning another wedding in the future or hosting a party or family event, Missy and the ACE team will be by our side! Thank you times a million!

  • Missy and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Anything you need as a bride, she is there! You never truly realize how many moving parts there are to planning a wedding. We really couldn't have done it without the help of the A.C.E. team. If you want a stress free wedding have Missy by your side and they day will run smooth! Thanks A.C.E.!!!!
