Melissa & Morgan are a phenomenal duo! They were extrememly helpful, supportive and professional. Every single question I had was answered with expertise and confidence. From the consultations, rehearsal, research and the actual day, we came away from each point of contact feeling grateful we had Lustre on our side!Sent on 16/12/2011
Melissa was integral to my feeling completely stress-free and HAPPY on our wedding day. Honestly, we had our bridal party and families comment how smoothly our day went. Our guests also commented that they've never been to such a fun wedding because they could see the bride and groom having the time of their lives. This was directly due to not having to worry about a thing because of Melissa + Morgan! Thank you so much guys - we are so thrilled to have met you <3
My husband and I were extremely happy with Lustre Event Coordination and would HIGHLY recommend them to everyone!

Deciding to hire a wedding coordinator was something that my husband, Trevor, and I decided quite late in the wedding process. We had all of our vendors booked and had a ton of ideas for DIY projects, but we realized that we really needed help to pull everything off on the day of and make our vision come to life. We met with Melissa and Morgan and they totally set us at ease. I felt like we were absolutely on the same page about how we wanted the day to look and feel.Sent on 28/02/2012
Melissa and Morgan really made us feel like our wedding was their only wedding, and poured their heart and soul into making our vision come true. There were several decor elements that I had my heart set on and Melissa and Morgan spent countless hours trying to locate each piece for me. Even with bumps in the road along the way, Melissa continued to assure me that they would find something perfect. And in the end - perfect it was!!! Melissa and Morgan also created the homemade toppings for our fabulously delicious ice cream bar. Check out Bucket and Whisk for all of your sweet table ideas!
Not only did they help in the weeks leading up to the wedding with finding various décor elements and scheduling the events for the day, on the day of the wedding they did everything - and I mean everything!! They set up all of the décor and lighting at both of the venues and made sure everything was absolutely beautiful when we walked in! Because of rain, they had to move our ceremony from outside to inside (getting themselves soaked in the process) - and when the rain stopped right before the ceremony, without hesitation they moved everything back out again, just so that we could have our dream wedding outside as planned :) I can't thank them enough for this!
Most importantly, they made sure everything flowed smoothly from start to finish. We knew that there was nothing that our family or friends would have to worry about that day. In the end, hiring Melissa and Morgan was probably one of the best investments we made for our wedding. We can’t thank them enough for everything they did and for making our day stress-free and beautiful!
We wish them all the love and happiness in the world!

Lustre was a must have investment.Sent on 12/10/2011
I was engaged on April 7th 2010 and we were adamant about getting married Nov 28th that same year. Even with the short planning period my husband took my husband and I procrastinated a bit at the beginning stages of planning. When I finally started to buckle down I couldn't bare being the one making all the decisions/spending all the money because it was such a huge financial spend. The pressure of planning a wedding "on my own" combined with the short time line made it an easy decision to search for a wedding planners.
When I decided to hire Lustre I had only my venue and catering locked down. There were many others who had to be hired. Lustre had provided a list of about two vendors for every service we needed. The choices they gave were based on our wedding budget and location. They were able to attend all our vendor meetings that I needed their support in. They let me take the lead, ask my questions and get to know the vendors. I could rely on them to ask the not so obvious questions, and afterwards remember details said during the meeting. There was never ever, ever any pressure to use the vendors they suggested. Three of my vendors I had selected for the day were based Lustre's recommendations.
They provide couple different packages clients can pick from. If you think you have everything under control and don't need full or partial planning services, you MUST have them for the day of service. For our wedding it was so important for us to have them there because we had a small wedding party who couldn't really manage all the little details I would need them to assist with on the day (set up of little decorations here and there, co-ordinating with the bar and catering people when services were supposed to start and end etc). It was such a blessing to have them there on the wedding day because it took a load off of everyone's shoulders. No one had to really think about anything. I remember on the day a couple times vendors had come to me asking questions on my preference and all I did was direct them to Melissa and Morgan. And there were many times throughout the night I remember smiling and asking myself "when did this get set up?" "Who did that?" They were there to worry about the little details so I didn't have to, and neither did any of my friends or family.
Another saving grace that I never thought about was end of night clean up. I had paid for their services to the end of my wedding night. There were so many little things that needed to be removed from the venue and even returned to other vendors. Instead of cleaning I was able to wind down and have catch up time to chat with remaining guests while they gathered things that needed to be collected.
These two always went above and beyond. They definitely helped me save money and time by taking on some of the research, providing additional services (Morgan was able to provide ceremony music, and lights at an addition cost of the equipment). As we approached closer to the wedding date there were also some awkward tense moments my husband and I had (disagreements about the wedding) while Morgan and Melissa were there. They were incredibly professional and mediated the differences.
This young and pleasant couple were amazing to work with. I enjoyed coming out to every meeting with them to plan my wedding but also speaking to them about their relationship and getting to know them. There are so many examples of how exceptional they are.
I want to mention that wedding planners are not like tv show planners. That is a good thing...leave all that drama for tv. And understand that proper communication is key to getting what you want and need for your day. They play a part in the bringing together the vision, but the bride and groom have to do their homework to have an idea of what they want. And ultimately, make the final decision.
Let's do it again!

They are an awesome team and you can not ask for a more caring, responsive, professional wedding planner. We were so happy with their service and do not hesitate to recommend them to any other couple. You can not go wrong with hiring Morgan and Melissa.Sent on 17/02/2012

Lustre Events (Melissa and Morgan) saved our marriage even before my husband and I got married! They worked with us to create a unique wedding, offering suggestions, vendors, and money-saving ideas that helped us stay on budget. Melissa and Morgan were amazing at coming up with great ideas that helped make our day fun, fun, fun! The day of the wedding, they helped with everything and anything they could, allowing me to relax knowing things were in good (great!) hands. They were real troopers and I know we wouldn't have pulled off such a great day without them. Can't say enough about Lustre Events - don't look any further, because you have found THE best wedding planners out there!Sent on 07/09/2012

Having Melissa and Morgan from Lustre Event coordinate our wedding made a huge difference, they resolved a few potential catastrophes for us and the best part is, I had no idea these little hick-ups happened until after the wedding because it was dealt with so efficiently and smoothly. My husband originally did not see the value in having a coordinator, but even he admits now that hiring these two were one of our best wedding investments. They are so nice and easy to get along with too, Thanks Melissa and Morgan!!!Sent on 24/08/2012

Melissa and Morgan of Lustre Event Coordination were indispensable in the planning of our wedding. Their professionalism, knowledge of the industry and attention to detail greatly helped in making our wedding special and ensured the smooth facilitation of the actual wedding day with minimal stress. Their genuine warmth and caring, and their ability to work as a creative and efficient team, make them invaluable as wedding planners. Our wedding was wonderful, and everyone had a great time. Thanks to Melissa and Morgan, we, as the bride and groom, and our families were able to relax and really enjoy the celebration. We recommend them for event planning without hesitation! Thank you for everything, Melissa and Morgan! You are the best!Sent on 27/08/2012
