The Melissa Dawn Event Designs Difference

Christine + Kyle

She exhibited an unparalleled level of professionalism and she has a remarkable eye for detail. Melissa listened attentively to our vision and transformed it into a reality that surpassed our wildest dreams. Every aspect of our special day, from the venue selection to the decor, was executed flawlessly.

On our wedding day, we even received positive comments about Melissa’s clear and detailed production schedule from our vendors.

Our wedding day was an absolute dream come true!”

“I cannot express how grateful we are to have Melissa as our wedding planner.

Laura + Nate

Throughout the process, she made us feel confident that our day would be perfect, leaving us stress-free. She offered the perfect balance of keeping us in the loop while dealing with a million details behind the scenes.

The wedding day was smooth and she turned our vision into reality. We had multiple guests say that it was the nicest wedding they had ever been to, and I credit Melissa for that.

She was so lovely to be around and we enjoyed spending time with her over the wedding weekend. We couldn’t be happier!”

“We recently got married at the Banff Springs and it was everything we dreamed of and more.

Lauren Alexander

Anyone who has been to Melissa's website or Instagram would know that she has a phenomenal design sense, but to compliment this, she is professional, responsive, and was great to work without throughout my planning process. I was planning the wedding at a distance, and she was always available to give advice, recommendations, or reassurance, particularly in the weeks and days leading up to the wedding.

For anyone considering wedding planning or management services, I would highly recommend working with a professional like Melissa.

“Our wedding was so beautiful, and it couldn't have been executed without the help of Melissa and her team.
