We could not have been happier or in better hands with Sweet Blossom Weddings' expert organization, cheerful energy, awesome network of vendors, and top-notch execution of our entire wedding planning process and wedding day! Melissa is a joy to know and work with, and she really... Read More knows weddings. With Melissa we had the "ally" we needed to bring together our dream celebration, and she immediately became simply one of the best and most essential pieces of our wedding dream team, which she helped us assemble. SBW offers lots of different packages to suit different brides' and couples' needs, so if you need full service and design or if you're like us and really just need to know the ins-and-outs of wedding planning (how to structure and pull it all off), she's your gal and there 100%! On the day of our wedding, I felt absolutely joyful, calm, and able enjoy every moment, every guest, and every detail because I knew we were in such good hands. Melissa and her team are incredible, balancing the best and most professional services while managing to keep everything personalized, caring, joyful, and genuine while at it. My husband and I are so grateful to SBW!

Melissa and her team are amazing! I'm so happy we hired Sweet Blossom to help us with our wedding! I purchased the Apple Blossom package (first month-last month coordination) and it was well worth the investment. Melissa was so easy to work with, very professional and organized,... Read More she listened to every concern I had, gave great recommendations, was always prompt to answer emails or take a phone call to help ease my stress of all the little wedding details and planning. I had 100% trust that our wedding day would be run seamlessly because of her...and it did! So seamless that we were ahead of schedule most of the night! Melissa and her team made the wedding day so stress free that we (and our family) got to really enjoy the whole day without having to worry about anything. I received a lot of compliments on how well organized and on top of things Melissa and her team were. I highly recommend hiring SBW to help coordinate your wedding! You won't be disappointed!

Melissa and her team at SBW are truly amazing! Her kind and honest heart made it such a pleasure to work together, and her attention to detail and constant promptness made the stress of wedding planning not so bad!

(She was even there to quickly wipe the cake off my face when my husband smashed it in my face!) She’s seriously the best, and we couldn’t have done it without her!! I highly highly recommend working with this team for the best wedding experience ever!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! My husband and I are recently married (April 2017) and we are THRILLED to give Melissa Reinke and her team at Sweet Blossom Weddings a GLOWING review. She is absolutely wonderful to work with! My husband and I planned the wedding in San Diego while living... Read More across the country and working full time in Massachusetts, so we booked the Cherry Blossom Package (full service) and Melissa was absolutely invaluable to us. We hired her about a year before our wedding date after we had already secured a venue but we needed her help with everything else, including music, lights, decorations, florals, and desserts. She's very professional, but also awesome and personable! She was extremely responsive to our emails and made time for phone calls or video chats whenever we needed her. She gave us great options of vendors to choose from within our budget and helped us navigate phone interviews, tastings, and contracts VERY easily. She kept us on track AND on budget and helped us to get exactly what we wanted based on what was important to us on our special day. In terms of the wedding day, her team was an absolute dream. She and an additional assistant handled the entire set up and break down of everything and an additional bridal assistant stayed with me and the girls to help solve any logistical issues or get us anything we needed. The bridal assistant was a wonderful addition to our day. I had ZERO stress day of and ZERO problems to solve, so I could completely enjoy the whirlwind. Plus, my bridesmaids loved it because they too could enjoy the day with me without being too busy with problem solving on my behalf. The day was truly seamless and we are so grateful to Melissa for helping to plan and orchestrate the wedding of our dreams!!

Book Melissa and her team for your wedding if you want a flawless and worry free day. I had my fair share of hiccups wedding planning and even on the day of the wedding but never was truly stressed because I knew Melissa was there to help. I know my wedding day couldn't have...

My wedding day was perfect and I know it couldn't have been without Melissa and Olivia- thank you!

The best decision I made for my wedding was hiring Sweet Blossom Weddings! Kat was amazing from start to finish. When I first met with Kat, she took the time to get to know me and my now husband. She cared more about what kind of couple we were so she would be able to understand... Read More what we needed for a perfect day. I believe the key to have a stress free wedding day is trusting the professionals you have hired. From start to finish, Kat was able to recommend vendors that she knew were reliable and professional. Having her meant I didn't have to worry about the tedious things and I was really able to enjoy my day to the fullest. When we arrived back at our hotel at the end of the night, we found Kat and her team dropping off all of our things from the day (i.e photos, guest sign in canvas, ceremony items, etc.) It was everything I would have forgotten. It's been two weeks since our wedding and I am still hearing feedback from our guests about how incredible our wedding was. "Best wedding I've ever been to!" The feeling of being calm on the most important day of my life is priceless. I encourage any bride to at the very least set up a consultation with her. I have no doubt you will love her as much as I do. I'd give her 10 stars if I could.

Melissa and Sweet Blossom Weddings were amazing! I initially wasn't sure how much value there would be in having a day of wedding planner but I am definitely glad that we hired SBW! Melissa and her team helped us coordinate things in the month leading up to our special day.... Read More She helped us communicate and coordinate all of our vendors for payment, the set up, and execution on the day.

Her team was always very friendly, professional, and accommodating. I would definitely give her the highest recommendation to any couple even remotely considering a wedding planner. And if you aren't considering it, you should! As the groom, I was skeptical thinking we could do everything ourselves, but I am glad we had the SBW team there so that we could enjoy our day without any extra worries or stress!

I wish I could find adequate words to describe how absolutely amazing Melissa is. She came recommended by our hotel coordinator (who was also awesome). In the beginning: From the moment we spoke to her, we knew she was the one for us but when we met her, we were certain she... Read More was the best. She was friendly and honest. She never stopped smiling and never stopped critically analyzing our needs to come up with the best solutions. By the middle: Melissa never gave me room for doubting her. She had it all in the bag! Every question and concern was met with an answer and multiple solutions. She was a source of resources so that I didn't have to worry about other vendors. She tailored a package to meet our needs and our budget. She made it all seem possible even when it felt impossible. She worked with us at every bend and turn and never complained for a minute. In fact she did it all with a smile. At the end: Our entire wedding group, family and friends alike not only noticed the efficiency of Melissa and her team on that day but by the end of the night, they also loved her. She was cheerful throughout and coordinated everything to the very end. She was the first one there but equally important, she was the last one to leave. She has an eye for quality and it shows in every little detail. The bridal assistant was AMAZING! We can honestly say that Melissa and her team are a large part of what made our wedding beautiful, elegant, special and everything we imagined it could be and much more.

Melissa and her team were truly amazing. Aside from the fact that Melissa always had a very sweet and positive demeanor, always came to our meetings early, was incredibly professional and organized, has great taste, and had fantastic follow-through, I would say the real win with... Read More her was that she made both my and my (now!) husband's parents really trust her. My mother for one, does not even believe in wedding planners but I knew we had won her over when on the day of the wedding, rather than bombard me with questions, concerns and last minute emergencies, I saw her go straight to Melissa. Melissa fielded all of the out-there requests, and managed to deal with every challenge without batting an eye. I was also very impressed with how she made everything run on time. My husband and I have giant, slow Asian families which certainly affected the proceedings during our reception, and Melissa managed to move things around, check in with me, coordinate with the DJ, etc. such that we ended up not falling behind and missing out on crucial things like how much time we had to dance, cut the cake, etc. I also loved that during the reception, she was present and I felt she was in charge, but it wasn't in a way that was overbearing or too visible. Finally, I felt that Melissa was honest. She would be upfront about what was possible, what was not, where we should spend our money, where she saw red flags, etc. That was really great and helped us plan in the best way. All in all, Melissa was so impressive that while she is San Diego based, I live and work in LA and recommend her to people even if their weddings are not in San Diego. There are so many wedding planner horror stories--unfortunately, my sister's was one of them, which pretty much scarred me--that if you find a good planner who's personally recommended, it's worth it. Thank you Melissa!!
