  • I already have recommended Melissa to another bride to be. I first hired her as a day of coordinator but she did so much more than just that and pretty much became my month of coordinator. She was able to take over some tough situations when I could not handle planning my own wedding anymore. She paid attention to the details I didn't have the skill to do. I didn't have to worry about a thing once I hired her. My own complaint is that I should have hired her sooner to plan my whole wedding.

  • Deciding to contact Melissa and work with her and the EBM team has literally been the easiest and BEST decision we have made in regards to our wedding! Between the amazing reviews online and then meeting her in person BEFORE we started planning ; we just KNEW for us, she was IT! She helped manage the incredibly overwhelming wedding industry - for every vendor we had to choose she gave us options to choose from and I always knew that we could trust her insight & suggestions. But more than her planning skills, her demeanor and amazing attitude just make things so smooth! We honestly cannot recommend Melissa & her team more highly, she was an investment in our lives and sanity and our day was the best because of her!

  • It has been a little over a month since our dream wedding at Cipriani. We have been working with Melissa from Events by Missy since last June. I was referred to her by my friend Cara who got married a year ago and working with her was the best wedding decision we made. I work 50+ hours a week and my hubby is doing his externship at a hospital, so we knew from the beginning that we needed help planning. From start to finish she has helped with everything. Melissa helped us quickly problem solve when our original venue didn't work out, her quick action and experience led us to the perfect venue. Her ability to take our conversations and turn them into a working vision board made it easy for vendors to follow. Her creative vision made our wedding truly dreamy. All of our guests were blown away and some say it was the best wedding they ever attended. This is a direct result of Melissa’s hard work and dedication to her clients. She is a décor genius, organized, gives great advice, and wi... Read more

  • Melissa was absolutely wonderful to work with at every stage of the planning process and I would recommend her to anyone. She worked with us as our day of coordinator. She is incredibly kind and friendly, organized, dedicated, and always at ease. In the beginning, she was there to answer questions, go through checklists, and bounce ideas off of. As we approached the date, she made sure that every detail of the schedule for the day was well-organized, from the big things like our bus transportation to the minute details like where the bridesmaids should stand to pass out sparklers to the guests. On the day of the wedding, she coordinated with every single vendor so that they worked as one unit and made sure that everything went smoothly, informing me and my husband and our party of what to do and when. I don’t know what we would have done without her. Besides all of the logistics that she handled, she was always calm and made me feel at ease, even when I was incredibly anxious about t... Read more

  • Words cannot express my gratitude for Melissa & her girls! My wedding was something out of a magazine! It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of them. I came to them with a simple idea and they worked their magic and brought it to life. If you think you don't need a wedding planner, think again and if you think you can go with just any one THINK AGAIN! Melissa is a top-notch planner and I was super lucky to have had her assistance. She always made us feel as though she had everything 100% under control. Trust me, you want this is a planner!! I loved everything she came up with! She respected my input and added her special designer eye to my ideas. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly. Everything, every person, every moment...

    Thank you so much Sharon...it was our pleasure to be a part of your big day! Big hugs to both you and Ben! "Say cheese my squeeze" :)

  • Working with Melissa was the best decision we ever made. My fiancé (at the time) was nervous about the idea of working with a wedding planner but after our first meeting with Melissa he looked at me and said YES! And from then on it was just the most incredible relationship. She helped manage the incredibly overwhelming wedding industry - for every vendor we had to choose she gave us options to choose from and I always knew that we could trust her insight & suggestions. She helped us watch our budget and decisions when they seemed to be coming from every direction. But more than her planning skills, her demeanor makes her kick-ass to work with. We cannot recommend Melissa & her team more highly, she was an investment in our sanity and resulted in us having the BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES !!

    Thanks so much Alicia...its my goal to be sure my clients are comfortable and happy with the planning process all the way until the wedding day is over! It can be overwhelming but you both took it in stride and did the damn thang :) Continued blessings to both you and John...love ya both to pieces!!!

  • We hired Events by Missy & Co to oversee the event day coordination for my company's 10 year anniversary. All aspects of the event were covered completely and with detail. We were able to enjoy everything from getting ready to being able to mingle and celebrate with our guests. I truly that you for a job well done and for your support.

  • Melissa Fife was worth every penny I paid for a "Day Of Coordinator." I did most of the wedding planning myself and was on the fence about hiring somebody for the "day of." Once shuttle service was involved back and forth to a hotel, I decided to bite the bullet and hire somebody to help out. She was a gem: punctual, organized, experienced, knowledgeable, accessable and attentive. Extremely easy to work with! She was a very calming influence on a day when a mother of the bride is pulled in many directions. Though our venue was phenomenal and extremely well run, Melissa helped us rehearse several times and tied together any loose ends. I am sure she would make an excellent full service planner for those who need one, as well. We have no hesitation in recommending her!

  • When my daughter and I began to plan her wedding, I wasn’t sure we’d need a day of coordinator. I am so glad we did!!! Hiring Melissa was the best decision we made. Melissa was truly a gem from start to finish! She was organized, quick to respond to my questions, so professional and kept everyone calm. I can go on and on. With Melissa there, I was able to relax and enjoy my daughter’s special day. Thank you Melissa for doing such an awesome job and being a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend your services to anyone without hesitation!

  • If you want a care-free, no worries type of wedding day Melissa and her team are the ones to hire! Before I even get into the perfect day let me tell you Melissa was available at all times even to answer the silliest of questions. She assisted me with vendor referrals, writing my ceremony, making the timeline, and just overall helping me keep calm through the whole process! She sent me updated "to-do" lists to ensure that I was on schedule and completing things in a timely manner for the wedding. As for the rehearsal and day of everything was perfect. She conducted the rehearsal and made sure everyone knew exactly where & what time they were needed. When our big day began she checked in with me to see if there was anything I needed and made sure everything flowed seamlessly. She kept not only myself but my vendors and bridal party right on schedule and we started right on time!! I was never bothered with questions from anyone… I cannot reiterate it any more other than it was PERFECT... Read more

  • I used Missy as my wedding day coordinator and she was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She had great suggestions for the wedding planning process and provided a very detailed schedule for the day of wedding. She even had backup readings for mass just in case the readers forget theirs, she thought of everything! I also had a long list of day of tasks, and kept adding to it, for her and Dominique (she was great too!) and even changed up transportation a few days before the wedding and she was able to execute and accommodate it all! During my wedding day, Missy always made sure I was comfortable and calm and kept checking in on me, she helped make my wedding day an amazing day I will never forget!

    Thanks so much for the kind words Brittany - you and Danny were a treat to work for and I'm very thankful to have met you both...your families are truly awesome and I wish you both the most happiness and love a couple can share!

  • Melissa was everything that I didn't know that I needed! I had a small budget and planned everything myself and felt like I had done a great job. I then realized that even though I saved a ton by doing things myself that also meant I'd have to set up and execute myself which would have added a lot of work and stress to my wedding day. I didn't want to ask my bridesmaids or family members to work our wedding, they had already done so much. Enter Melissa!! We met and I filled her in on what I needed and she jumped right in and handled everything that I asked her to do and more. From our first meeting I knew I was in good hands and stopped stressing. She thought of things that I hadn't and I'm so glad that I found her! Trust me, even the most organized, DIY, Pinterest bride needs all hands on deck the day of the wedding. I enjoyed having mimosas and giggling with my best friends at the salon a lot more than I would have enjoyed putting out favors and lighting candles. Melissa organized o... Read more

    Thanks so much for the kind words Danielle...I simply loved all of your attention to detail with your DIY wedding and although we only worked together for a short few months I am happy for the lasting friendship we have created!

  • Missy was simply spectacular! we knew we wanted to use her immediately when we met - her sense of style is impeccable, and she has a wonderful, relaxed and excited attitude. She seemed genuinely excited to work with me and make my day perfect. We had our wedding at my friends estate in CT, so we needed a lot of help. Missy was organized, efficient, transparent, and made sure everything from the grass looked perfect - she did not overlook a single detail…and her team was great, they were on point with every detail and then some! Missy helped us with month of coordination for a wedding of 250 people, and 17 vendors. She organized everything on the day of my wedding, and made sure everything went off without an issue. She created a day of plan, and had her assistants at all 3 of our wedding sides (house, hotels, church). When I got to the estate I was completely breathless - while we had worked together on the plan, I could not believe how stunning everything looked. From organizing... Read more
