These two, Maura & Matt, knew how to shake a tail feather and throw a party! The Smog Shoppe in Culver City was the perfect backdrop for these two to express their style and celebrate their nuptials.

"I do not even know where or how to begin singing Melissa's praises.  I enlisted Mel's coordinating expertise in planning our early August 2015 wedding in Los Angeles - and I'm glad I did.  My husband and I did some of the very early on planning (venue and photography selection), but needed someone with the wedding planning savvy to help with a vast majority of the remaining details.  Mel immediately saw our vision, and really executed it far better than we could have on our own.  What I dreaded most about planning was reaching out to a bunch of different vendors, juggling quotes and bids, and dealing with major (and minor) details as the wedding day drew closer.  Mel handled all of that.  I am extremely Type A and love to be in control (sorry about that, Mel), yet she handled my neurosis with ease!  She also did an excellent job of connecting with us on a personal level, which, in my opinion, really sets Mel apart.  If she sensed I was stressing about something, I would receive a follow up email just to check in to make sure all was good with wedding planning, work, etc.  Perhaps most importantly, though, was how well she handled the day of the wedding.  I really just showed up, and she took care of the rest.  Honestly, walking into our reception, with everything completely done and looking amazing was the best wedding day feeling (second only to actually marrying my husband!).  I'm sure some things went wrong (or at least not as planned), but if pressed, I wouldn't be able to tell you a single one.  Mel handles problems without you even knowing.  Trust me, on the day of your wedding, you want to be able to enjoy yourself, and not worry about whether all of the rentals arrived on time.  Mel gave that to us.  I HIGHLY recommend her to all future brides!"
