Loved everything Melissa did
Melissa was FANTASTIC!!! She went above and beyond what I expected. Her floral displays will be something I remember forever. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with. If I ever need flowers in the future I will 100% go through her. I still dream of my bridal bouquet and arch way she did. Everything was unreal and magical!! Even my friends and family still talk about the arrangements. I would definitely recommend you book with her. She is a delight to work with and can envision your vision with youSent on 28/09/2018

Melissa and her team made my wedding. Book them now.
Where do I begin to describe how grateful I am for Melissa and her team? Wow. From the stunning floral arrangements to her calm, positive attitude, to her expertise and emotional support, to the tiniest details, she MADE my wedding the magical day it was. Melissa helped me plan my wedding, design my vision of a late sixties/early seventies boho dream day, chose my incredible flowers and made the most beautiful bouquets, table settings and decors, and brought the most hilarious photobooth (that was a total hit - if you are on the fence about getting one, JUST DO IT. We now have a photo guestbook of all our friends!). She was just totally and utterly behind me/had my back in the lead up to the day and on the day itself. Everytime I needed something on the wedding day, she would magically appear - completely calm and having already done it or about to do it. She knows the coast, the vendors, the area and is just extremely knowledgeable in her field. I felt I could trust her entirely, and more than that, we just really liked her and her team! It felt like they were a part of our wedding and I am so so glad they were. I can't recommend her and her team enough and I'm happy to share more about my positive experience. I spoke with every planner on the coast and decided on Coastal Weddings and Events. I am so so glad that I did. I owe their team so much for making my day the best day of my life. Thank you, Melissa and team. Colin and I are so grateful for you.Sent on 12/09/2018

Thanks to Melissa our wedding was everything we could have imagined and more!Sent on 23/11/2017
Melissa had our wedding planned in 3 months, and eliminated any possible stressful situations. She was always in communication and no request was too outrageous. Thanks to her we were able to completely enjoy our day worry free.
Melissa is so talented and pulled off our wedding vision seamlessly. Everything we asked for we received to a tee and beautifully executed. Her floral arrangements were absolutely stunning.
We can’t say enough good things about Melissa and Coastal Weddings and Events. Thank-you so much Melissa for creating such a perfect memorable day!!!

Amanda and Melissa made our wedding planning and wedding day a dream!! Their attention to detail and clear, timely communication let us put our minds at rest and enjoy the process and special day. They helped with contacting all our vendors and providing all the décor and flowers, a full service experience. We would highly recommend using Coastal Weddings.Sent on 26/10/2017

I am so lucky that I was referred to Melissa by the team at Rockwater Resort. I reached out to Melissa as soon as I had confirmed my wedding date, roughly a year before I was married. From the very start she was friendly, prompt with her responses and wanted to understand my vision right away. Even though were were a year out, Melissa wasted no time in getting started on my design plan. We had several meetings via the phone (since I live in Vancouver) and plenty of emails. We finally met in person a few months before the wedding when I got a chance to see one of my centre pieces in person. It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! Melissa understood my vision and made sure that I got everything that I wanted. I even made some changes with only weeks to go, and she made them happen. I couldn't have done this process without Melissa. From the day I contacted her to the very end of my wedding, she was truly a pleasure to deal with. My wedding day went exactly as planned, she was the one who ran the show and it was perfect. She made my wedding design dreams come true and it was exactly as I had pictured it. She is amazing to deal with and I am so lucky that I got to work with such an amazing planner.Sent on 16/09/2017

We ended up choosing the full wedding package to try to eliminate much of the stress that comes with planning a wedding. We are so happy we did that! Kori from Coastal Weddings was amazing to deal with! from preparation to execution to clean up afterwards, Kori made sure everything went smoothly and was exactly the day we wanted. Decor was beautiful. Coastal wedding also did our flowers which were so fresh and wonderful that a friend was able to reuse much of them for her wedding the weekend after! Koris vendor recommendations were spot on. I highly recommend Coastal Weddings and Kori .Sent on 19/08/2017

Dream wedding on the Sunshine Coast!
My husband and I chose to host our wedding on the Sunshine Coast for its sheer beauty and despite living in New York City, we were determined to make it work! We had a clear vision of what we wanted and needed a good partner to help execute it. I was lucky to be put in touch with Melissa from Coastal Weddings & Events by a friend who had used her to plan her wedding two years before. She came highly recommended to me. I interviewed other planners, but Melissa struck the best balance between personal touch, experience, and execution. I was a highly organized, type A bride and she met my energy with a calming yet get-it-done attitude. Throughout the process, I could completely trust that Melissa was working hard on our behalf and that she would deliver what we wanted. She knew all the relevant vendors and always presented options with recommendations from personal experience. She was also very receptive to collaboration and feedback. Another bonus is that she does her own flowers and very talented. What a bonus! She also suggested we donate the flowers after the wedding to local elder-care homes - so thoughtful and speaks to her values. The planning phase went exceptionally well and when it came to the day-of, I can't emphasize enough how amazing her and her team were. On the wedding day, she truly worked miracles. She and the team executed amazingly in the background - like fairy godmothers. My beau and I didn't have to worry about anything - she handled it all and we were left to enjoy the day. I cannot thank her enough for helping us live out the wedding of our wildest dreams. Thank you, Melissa!Sent on 08/03/2018

Kori is a wedding planning rockstar! She turned the wedding of my dreams into reality and came in under budget. She is extremely easy to communicate with and made the whole wedding planning process fun. She used her extensive experience to turn good ideas into better ones and to steer us away from ideas that sounded good but in reality would fall flat. Her local wedding vendor recommendations were also top notch. On the big day she was managing, juggling details and overall a calming presence that was always there to help but never intrusive. Kori clearly loves what she does. At both the ceremony and reception, while ensuring everything was still running smoothly, she could be seen smiling and enjoying the success of our wedding. Coastal Weddings also took care of our flowers, which were the best anyone had ever seen. Simply stunning! Their rentals are stylish and great quality and their photo booth was an absolute hit. To summarize, many of our guests said it was the most joyous ceremony and best wedding party they had ever been to. Hiring Kori was the best decision we made.Sent on 17/10/2016
