Lancaster Wedding Planner and Coordinator.

Here’s what our clients are saying…

“We live in MD, but I’m from Ephrata, and were planning a wedding in Lancaster County.  Therefore, we needed someone to help us with vendors.  We hired Melissa for the full package.  I had no clue where to find vendors, but Melissa helped me find the absolute best vendors.  She knew exactly where to go to get a dress, who to get flowers and cake from, and well she knew everything!  We would have been pretty lost without her help. Our wedding day was perfect.  If anything went wrong Melissa made sure we didn’t know about it.  She was even more helpful when we were negotiating contracts with our venue a week before the actual wedding!!! I would definitely recommend Melissa and her team.  We spent about 10 months e-mailing her and getting to know her.  It seemed weird at first to not e-mail her every day!  She is incredibly nice and easy to get along with.  She knows it’s all about the bride and groom. Planning a wedding is a lot of hard work, and Melissa definitely made it easier on us! Also, Melissa was the first wedding planner to get back to me.  She was the first wedding planner to set a meeting with us.  Once we met with her we were sold.” Jen (bride)
I can say that it seems like a minor thing to book a day of coordinator, but after having you on our wedding day I realized what a MAJOR help it was to have you there. You never missed a beat and knew my personality so well. I tell people to try the best they can to budget in a day of coordinator for sure!!” Laura (bride)

“…She is very good at time management, organization; and advanced preparation. Most important to me however, is that she is a good COMMUNICATOR with excellent follow-up.  She can talk to anyone (parents, vendors, the minister, etc.) without sounding confrontational.  If you follow her lead, she has the ability to combine all your needs and all your vendors into one easily managed package. Melissa contacted all our vendors, set up a timeline for the “big day,” and met with us at the event site to walk through every step.  She carefully communicated plans between the bride & groom and both sets of parents.  We hired a shuttle bus for transportation to-and–from the hotel and to a satellite parking site.  Melissa even did a “dry-run” with the driver to assure everything would go well.  As mother-of-the-bride, I was ever so glad for that “extra pair of hands” and “extra brain” to get us through the day of the event.  I was actually able to sit and relax on the porch of the event site and enjoy the pre-wedding music!  Our daughter and son-in-law are still telling us how happy they were that day. If I had it all to do over again, yes, I would definitely hire Melissa; only this time I would probably consider upgrading to a more comprehensive package. I think she could have offered organizational ideas to our daughter that weren’t just” thoughts coming from Mom.”   Melissa definitely knows how to take the pressure off her clients!”Sue (Mother of bride)

“Melissa followed the budget that we set for the wedding, spent countless hours meeting with vendors and organizing this big event. She gave attention to detail in every area and truly helped the day reflect Valerie’s style.  The evening of rehearsal was enjoyable and relaxing.  On the day of the wedding Sam and I were able to greet our guests and truly enjoy this special day in our lives.  Melissa took care of all the details and I was worry-free.” Elaine (Mother of bride)

“Best money spent!!! She was a great help and calmed my nerves many a time!! Loved her!!!” Erin (bride)

“I had such a great time planning my wedding, and you made it even better! I cannot thank you enough. The wedding was amazing and I could never had gotten all I wanted if it wasn’t for you. You did an awesome job!” Valerie (bride)

“You and Mike did such a wonderful job!  We really could not have pulled that wedding and reception off without you, Melissa!  As soon as we get back from our mini-getaway I’ll send you a glowing recommendation letter!  It was nice to work with you.  You are down to earth like we are.  I don’t like “stuffed shirt” types.  You made us comfortable through the whole process.  Everybody was happy and thought the ceremony and reception were beautiful!” Dawn (Mother of the bride)

“Melissa was a God send for our wedding. She was especially helpful to have around on the day of the wedding so my mom and I didn’t have to worry about all of the little details. She was very organized, professional and friendly from beginning to end and she made our wedding experience painless! Thanks Melissa!” Lindsay (bride)

I wanted to thank you for everything, you were amazing and things definitely would not have gone the way they did if you weren’t there…” Jenn (bride)

“YOU WERE WONDERFUL! My special day was perfect Melissa Martin Miville!!!! Thank you so much!” Cortney (bride)

Melissa performed her duties seamlessly and was a great asset to our daughter and son-in-law as they navigated a very busy and beautiful day.  Melissa’s knowledge, confidence and personality assisted in helping to keep the multiple events of the day, from early morning pictures to lining up the wedding party for the ceremony to directing the guests to cutting the cake, moving in a focused and celebratory manner.  Melissa discretely orchestrated the various wedding celebration moments with grace and professionalism…” Jim and Linda (parents of the bride)

“I am writing to thank and compliment you for the terrific job you did for Kristin’s wedding.  As you know, Kristin and Donna were initially reluctant to hire a planner, thinking we wouldn’t need onewow, were they wrong!  Sensing all the many details we would be facing, I prevailed and then, thank God, we found you…” Fred (Father of the bride)

“You are so creative… Thank you for making our day so wonderful and worry free.  Hiring you was a wonderful decision and you took the burden off myself and my parents.  I do appreciate your hard work and I know it’s what made my day run so smooth.” Kristin (bride)
