  • MJ was easy to work with from the beginning – and best of all, she was willing to work with our budget. She was very responsive to emails and called when she said she would. My husband and I created a very detailed playlist, weekend schedule, and photography shot list a week before our wedding, and MJ organized everything and communicated our wants to our entire vendor team – making our wedding day flawless. She answered all our guests’ questions leading up to and on the day of the wedding, setup our reception space, directed vendors, grabbed special family heirlooms for pictures throughout the day, and concisely organized the bridal party and groups of 30+ people for pictures. I cannot say enough good things about MJ and her team – they were a pleasure to work with!

  • As a full time students, graduating the same month as we got married, MJ wedding & events was more than just a help, they was a life saver! MJ her self was very professional, reliable, and more than understanding of your big day. Before I could even begin to stress over something, MJ had already handled it! The day of the wedding coordinator was smooth and successful without any complications, which I find to be rare! It was truly a pleasure to have MJ apart of my wedding planning.

  • Megan was absolutely incredibly. We booked her for her month-of coordination service, and she really made that final stretch go smoothly. A few examples: The groomsmen/groom got tuxedos through Men's Warehouse. When they arrived, most of them did not fit properly. This was the NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING. Megan was able to get in touch with Men's Warehouse and make an exchange that night, and the next day, all of the guys looked absolutely fabulous. None of the wedding party had been in a wedding before, so we had no idea how to deal with the rehearsal. Megan helped us run through the rehearsal efficiently, keeping us at an appropriate pace, instructing the flower girl and ring bearer on what they should be doing, and generally managing us through. We were done in 30 minutes! The actual day of the wedding was a crazy blur. I was running all over the place greeting guests and having a generally wonderful time. I had nothing to do with anything logistical, and that's all a bride ... Read more

  • I hired MJ and team to pull of the quickest venue transformation possible. I knew going in that there was only going to be 3 hours of time to get the venue ready for my reception. MJ worked tirelessly with her team to get all to manage many moving parts and bring my vision to life. They also managed the reception and were on top of every detail.

    Thank you, Mrs. Hardamon! It was a pleasure bringing your vision to fruition! You were delightful to work with and I wish you and Paris a lifetime of love and happiness!

  • MJ did an amazing job coordinating the day, picking things up, and decorating the venue. I wouldn't have changed a thing! Very happy with my experience with her and will definitely be recommending to other couples.

  • Megan made our day run so smoothly, I'm not sure how we could have done without her! I had hesitated to spend money on a wedding coordinator, but I would do it again in a second! She was incredibly professional, well-organized, and kind. More than that, she was fun to just talk to in the midst of wedding planning craziness!

  • It is hard to put into words how we feel about Megan. By the time the wedding was over she felt like one of our family. From the first day, she handled everything for us. Both the bride and her mother (me) never had to worry about a thing. She made sure all the vendors did their jobs and even negotiated their fees. She worked until well after the wedding and even helped take gifts and left overs back to our house in her SUV. The wedding went perfect with her in charge. She was born to do this work! WE LOVE YOU MEGAN!! ?? Brides to be....Megan needs to be the first person you contact in planning your wedding. SHE IS INCREDIBLE!! Tina Lichtefeld (mother of the bride - Alyssa)

  • I had the pleasure of working with MJ Weddings and Events for my special day! She was very easy to work with and made my day stress-free. She was with me every step of the way. She even helped me pick out my bridesmaid dresses. She was very attentive to my needs and made sure I had everything that I asked for... you can't go wrong with MJ Weddings and Events! I have a baby shower coming up and will definitely be contacting her because I know she'll make it beautiful. I'm so excited!!

  • MJ Weddings and Events has had a hand in, if not complete control over most all of my personal events and events not so personal to me. This event company has been providing myself, family and close friends with top notch quality in services, value and a unique approach to event planning and hosting for some time! I was able to be very specific from color of décor, must haves in terms of bakery (out of town), and websites of personalized items that I'd been saving via Pinterest! They nailed it! So much so, that it was actually more of a surprise to me, which made the event that much more special. I didn't have to lift a finger, answer a phone call after the first consultation or anything! After the initial consultation, I was just told what time to show up and all was absolutely perfect.

  • My daughter’s wedding was “last minute” by most standards – we didn’t begin much of the planning until about 5 months prior to the ceremony. After speaking with numerous wedding coordinators, we selected MJ Weddings and Events and were so pleased with the results! Megan Sheckles did an excellent job helping my daughter achieve her “perfect day”, and still managed to keep our budget in mind (my husband and I paid for the wedding). MJ Weddings and Events engaged quality vendors who provided excellent service for a large outdoor wedding and reception on a hot August afternoon. The floral arrangements, décor, catering, etc. came together for a beautiful evening at My Old Kentucky Home State Park. My daughter and son-in-law were so happy with how everything turned out, and our family and friends enjoyed a wonderful celebration thanks to the MJ Weddings and Events team!
