What types of weddings do you specialize in?
We love weddings where we can bring out the couples personalities and unique relationship. An intimate and casual outdoor barbecue, a chic tented affair, a rustic family-style feast in a brick loft – whatever your jam is, we’ll find it!
Why do couples love working with you?
We’re fun, kind, we love what we do and our couples know it! We make sure people feel supported and understood through the many months we often work together. Together we create a wedding they didn’t know they could have!
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
How rewarding of a career it is. Making a sometimes stressful process fun and exciting, getting to know our couples and their families at such a special time, the honour of sending them down the aisle, and most of all creating a day for them they’ve dreamed of and will remember forever. It’s a pretty awesome job.
How did you get started?
Melissa started her path in hospitality and Morgan came from a sound and lighting background. Both of us came together and realized our passion for weddings, personalized and detailed events, and close client connections. Then came a super fun and enthusiastic planning duo!
What budget range do you cater to?
We work with all budgets.
What typically happens at the beginning of the process when someone contacts you?
We set up a complimentary consultation to get to know one another. We want to find out all about you and listen to you tell us all of your wedding dreams! This is an opportunity for us to make sure you know who we are and what you can expect if you choose to have us plan your wedding.
The moment we met M&M, we knew right away that they are the ones we wanted to work with. We had sky-high expectations for how we wanted our wedding to be. M&M helped turn our vision for a perfect wedding into a reality. The wedding was exactly what we wanted it to be and even more. It was a perfect expression of our personalities and passions, and of our love for one another. I contribute the success to their creativity, meticulous organization, great contacts and excellent reputation with many suppliers. From the very beginning, they were very organized and truly give a genuine effort to understand our vision. We had regular meetings; all of them were very fun and productive. One of our favorite meetings was the proposal day meeting, where they presented us with the run-down of all the creative and design elements of the wedding. They went above and beyond to help us meet our needs. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, they were very good at communicating our needs to the vendors while staying adaptable to unexpected changes/requests that came along the way. They also provide thoughtful recommendations of all the vendors we used (while keeping our budget in mind). As someone who places a lot of emphasis on aesthetics, M&M added so many little extra touches to both the ceremony and the reception, adding creative design elements that we could have never thought of ourselves.
Most importantly, they made the wedding planning process very pleasant, fun and stress-free. Believe it or not, we truly enjoyed our wedding planning process and have made so many great memories along the way. More importantly, we felt absolutely no stress in the weeks leading up to the wedding, as well as on the actual wedding day; It was simply amazing! We cannot speak highly enough of M&M and highly recommend them to anyone planning their wedding! They have beautiful personalities and are wonderful to work with. We are forever grateful to have known them.
Dear Melissa and Morgan,
I don’t know where to begin…
Thank you. Thank you for an exceptional, perfect and well executed evening. Your service and assistance from the beginning of our relationship to the night of the wedding was impeccable. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate all of your help, planning and visions. It was a perfect night, thanks to you.
The moment we walked into the room, we knew it was going to be a spectacular night. You completely understood the vision we were going for and helped us make a bunch of pinterest ideas become and reality. Every little detail was amazing and well thought out. It was amazing/perfect!
Words cannot express our gratitude for your assistance and time. If there were hiccups during the evening, we had no idea. Everything seemed to run perfectly. It was a beautiful night and a beautiful set-up.
The evening would not have been as wonderful without all of your help, time and patience. I will recommend you to anyone who will listen. From the bottom of our hearts, the night would not have been the same without.
We already miss you!
Amanda and Ari
