Wow! I don't even know how to put into words how AMAZING Missy and her ACE team were! I was so overwhelmed (and honestly uninterested) in planning my wedding - but Missy and her team made it the most enjoyable and fun process. During the year of planning, Missy and her team were extremely prompt in their responses to my questions, very honest, supportive and respectful of every decision I made. From the lighting, to the food, down to the finest details of the chargers and napkins - Missy was there every step to support and give advice. The day of my wedding was the most relaxing day I've had. Missy and her team were there with me, down to the seconds before I walked to my groom, offering nothing but kind and supportive words.
My husband (and parents) and I could not have asked for a better experience. Missy is fun, professional and passionate about her work - she will make you feel as if your wedding is the only wedding she is planning, and will make you and your groom feel like family.
Hiring Missy was the best wedding decision we made!

This review is a MUST read for brides and MOB's that are looking for someone to not only ensure all goes smoothly, but to also always "have your back" when unexpected situations pop up, which are likely to occur with any wedding. Missy is the most caring, detail-oriented and visionary professional - her passion for wedding planning is the first thing you notice and she certainly makes you feel so comfortable every step of the way. As mother of the bride, that was such a priceless gift for me! She has a very calming affect, but at the same time lets you know who she is there to please and make happy! Many of the personalized touches we had at the reception were all Missy! Countless number of guests commented to me at the wedding and afterwards that they felt so incredibly special because of those personalized touches. That is also priceless. Our guests were so very special to us so what we were able to convey to them during the reception will be a lasting memory for them and for us. Missy was the leader of our A-Team and we are forever indebted to her for making Ansley and Chris' wedding absolutely perfect!! Warmest regards, Lisa Fraser

I hired Missy and her team to help guide me through the process of planning my wedding. I hired her for her "day of service," and the service she provided me went far beyond just "day of". For 15 months we worked together to plan my dream wedding. She and her team were always there for me answering every e-mail and phone call in a prompt manner. She provided me with great ideas, vendor recommendations and piece of mind. She made sure to meet with me several times through out the planning process. She personally reviewed all vendor contracts and made recommendations accordingly. Missy helped me save over $2,500 based on her recommendations. On rehearsal day she was there to help guide my entire family through the wedding rehearsal, which was no small feat! Thanks to Missy and her team, on my wedding day I woke up and didn't have to worry about a thing! My wedding ran so smooth, there were no issues and she was on top of every thing! Every little detail from ceremony to grand exit was perfect. I would highly recommend her! If it weren't for her and her team I don't know what I would have done!

Love meeting with our financial planner in workout garb. Really helps with the "I'm a professional I promise vibe".
Not many things I don't love about my profession, except for private residence site visits in the pouring rain when it's 43 outside!
Helping plan a winter dance at my babies school and it's taking everything I have not to give the "apples to apples" vs. "cost lecture"...
