We had an unreal experience with Kori at Coastal Weddings and Events! She was incredibly knowledgeable, composed and professional through the many Covid curveballs that were sent our way. We can’t say enough good things about our experience and our intimate ceremony was absolutely perfect.Sent on 15/08/2020

Honestly the day was perfect, better than we could have ever dreamed! Melissa and all of the vendors did the most amazing job making sure everything was exactly what we wanted. I would do it all over exactly the same.Sent on 02/10/2019

Coastal Wedding and Events did our wedding decor and flowers and we were completely blown away!! The day was absolutely perfect with their help. We were on the fence about getting a coordinator but so glad that we did!Sent on 05/10/2019

Working with Melissa for a year was the only thing that made being a teacher and planning a wedding possible for me! For most of the year I remember saying to people “I don’t feel stressed at all!” That’s because Melissa is the most relaxed but efficient wedding planner ever! Her calm demeanour instantly assures you that she knows what she’s doing and she is so easy to talk to, we instantly felt close and comfortable with Melissa. One thing that I worried about was not being able to fully see decor we were picking because we lived so far away but Melissa assured me and sent me pictures along the way. The morning of my wedding, I had to run down and take a peek at her hard work and I left crying tears of joy, it felt like a dream! Melissa took our vision and ran with it, turning it into the most beautiful lawn wedding I’ve ever seen! She made all of my dreams come true, the details, the florals, the games, the photo booth... she thinks of everything! We were complemented all night about the decor, people were in awe of the eucalyptus runners ... my favourite part!
Having Melissa on the day of our wedding was a dream, she kept us on schedule without making us feel rushed once, I don’t know how she does it. She organized a very large wedding party and did it with ease. Melissa and her team arranged all of our rentals, most of which were through them so we avoided having to deal with a dozen vendors. They have decorations, props, the most beautiful tent and lights, everything you can think of and she does her own floras!
We would never have enjoyed this experience without you and your team Melissa! Thank you for being the easiest person to work with, we miss you!!!Sent on 05/10/2019

Melissa and her team ( Coastal Weddings and events) were amazing! From our initial meeting where we described our vision and dream wedding, Melissa set out and ensured everything was perfect. Melissa was inclusive in the process but did not overwhelm us with tiny details , she handled everything flawlessly and was lovely to work with. Melissa's team were pleasant, hardworking and professional, the vendors recommended by Melissa were superb! I couldn't imagine organizing a wedding, all the details, timing etc. I was confident in Melissa's ability and was able to be present and participate in my daughters wedding without worrying about a thing ! I would recommend Melissa and her team without hesitation. FABULOUS !Sent on 10/08/2019

We had the perfect wedding thanks to Melissa and Team!
We had a great experience and the perfect event. Melissa helped us figure out how to make our wedding what we wanted, and within a realistic budget too. She was open to our venue and our ideas and knew when to tweak things because they may not work the way we'd envisioned or to make things even better. We would 100% recommend Coastal Weddings and Events to anyone who inquired.Sent on 02/11/2019

Kori and Melissa went above and beyond. Form the decor, to the flowers, to the tiny details that we didn’t even think of — everything was perfect.Sent on 09/09/2019

Melissa was amazing, and we loved working with her to plan our elopement. She took the stress out of wedding planning, and our wedding day couldn't of been more perfect. All the little personal details really made the day special. It was everything we wanted and more for our elopement!Sent on 20/11/2018

We couldn't have done it without them!
We had the most beautiful garden reception planned, when the weather changed half an hour before the ceremony, believe me, there was NO WAY we could have scrambled and make the appropriate changes.
Melissa thought of EVERYTHING, including reminding me that I needed to eat the day of the wedding.
The decor was exceptional, I told Melissa what I wanted, and it was like she picked the images of decor and creation right out of my head.
Having Coastal Wedding and Events create and do the work, took SO much pressure off of us. Getting married is stressful enough, having someone else look after all the little details is a complete blessing and enabled us to enjoy every moment of the experience.Sent on 12/09/2018
