Melissa Alison Events helps newly engaged couples navigate through the lengthy process that is planning a wedding. I truly love organizing and want to make a difference in the experience of a wedding day, so that the lovebirds can fully enjoy themselves with family and friends. Originating from Australia, I have been in the event industry since 2004, and hold an event management degree. I married my best friend in 2020 and recently became a mom to a handsome little boy. When I’m not changing diapers or designing wedding mood boards, I’m usually at one of my favourite craft breweries, watching Star Wars or looking for the next dog to foster.
From full wedding planning to wedding day coordination, we have a range of packages that can be tailored to our clients needs. Having the honor of being involved in a couple’s special day means the world to me, and I hope to help create lasting memories of love and celebration.
“Mel was my day-of coordinator. I don’t have enough words to say how awesome she was. Walking into our first meeting I had absolutely no clue how to plan a wedding. Mel guided me to the right direction. She’s extremely organized and had great attention to details. She helped putting together a master schedule and transformed my ideas into words on paper in such an organized manner. I didn’t have to bug her too much as everything was communicated to me before I could even question. Mel was super efficient and organized while helping us decorate the reception venue the day before the wedding. Most of the decorations/center pieces were provide by me and Mel made the whole set-up process like a breeze.”

“Although we only had Mel for the day-of package, I am quite confident when I say that if you book her for your full wedding planning (or partial wedding planning) that you will have a beautiful wedding experience! Mel was amazing! I had done most of my planning by the time I came to her and needed help bringing it all together the day of. Mel worked with me the month of our wedding to finalize timelines, confirm vendors, run rehearsal, and of course bring it all together the day of the event. We could not be happier with the job she did in helping us create a timeline that we felt good about, and seeing how she turned my vision into a reality to make our ceremony and rehearsal pure perfection!”

“Melissa is a wedding planner extraordinaire and Zen calmer. I hired her for day of support & coordination – she went above and beyond. She ensured our wedding was not only seamlessly planned but also extremely thoughtful throughout the stressful process. From attending the coordinating meetings at the Nash, going through her planners checklist to finding all the little things we didn’t even think of.
On the day of our wedding it was so nice to be able to just show up and know that everything was well managed. When we arrived everything was in perfect order; the restaurant, DJ, officiant, wedding party – literally everyone knew where to be and what to do. Oh, and last but not least, while professional, Mel is a tonne of fun! Her supportive spirit definitely made the day so much better.”
