We're not here to recreate your Pinterest board. Through our curated process, we learn your wants, needs, what excites you most about your wedding and what makes you nervous in order to deliver an elevated experience and a tailored design that is ultimately — perfectly you.

Melissa Dawn Event Designs was created after Melissa's first son was born. She developed a deep interest and passion for event design when planning his first birthday. Soon after, she was enrolling in classes and learning from the best planners in Canada to enhance her knowledge and skills.

Our Story

With a Degree in Business Administration and a certification under the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada , Melissa has the knowledge and onsite experience required to plan and design your wedding day.

Melissa is known for her strategic use of colour and modern style and she isn't afraid to try something new to make your day truly one of a kind.

Her work is her passion and she prides herself on ensuring you feel at ease leading up and on your wedding day. It's not uncommon to see her whipping out a Tide To Go for that unexpected makeup smudge or handing out colouring books to the kids table. 

It is the greatest honour to be trusted with your big day. Melissa approaches each wedding with the love, gratitude and respect it deserves.
