After a two-year engagement we had a great wedding planned for 120 guests, then COVID hit. My fiance and I were committed to our original October wedding date, but understood we couldn't host the party we originally planned. We procrastinated planning and considered eloping until the end of August until our photographer recommended we reached out to Morgan and Melissa. From the first meeting until our wedding five weeks later, they were everything you could dream of in a planner. They listened to our hopes and dreams, then in the ever-changing COVID restrictions, they produced a vision and executed flawlessly. In a compressed planning period they avoided 'decision-exhaustion' by asking the right questions and doing all of the legwork to present great options. What is usually a stressful planning excised in the best of condition, they made a fun and easy under the most challenging conditions. Their combination of foresight, organization, and a great support team (caterers, staffing, rentals, etc). This served us especially well when the neighbours called in a COVID complaint and M+M were able to quickly demonstrate compliance with all COVID-restrictions to the police officer who attended the scene. What could have been a massive disruption to our special day was dealt with before any of the guests even realized it was a possibility. My wife and I are eternally grateful to M+M for every second of the best day of our lives.

Melissa and Morgan made our wedding more perfect than we could have ever imagined.A and I were graduating from universities in different countries and then planning to backpack for half a year before getting married and settling down. To plan a wedding during such an uncertain and busy time would be impossible without serious sacrifice. So we contacted some planners. We saw pictures of weddings that M&M planned and were blown away. Nowadays pictures are edited so much that its hard to know what it was really like, so we were not sure what to expect. In any case, we decided to reach out. They were on top of every detail from the beginning, leading us through the entire process and making sure we were met all deadlines. One of the bigger decisions we had to make was whether to book a venue that came with everything already (flowers, caterer, etc) or to go with more of a packaged venue. M&M emphasised that we didnt need to pick a prepared wedding venue - they would create a wedding anywhere we choose. And they were right. We choose a beautiful but mostly unprepared farm venue. They planned everything. The flowers, the caterers, the furniture, literally everything. Nothing is overlooked. They kept us on schedule, they coordinated all of the vendors, and they gave us many different options. They proposed multiple themes until we came to something we liked. And then we changed our minds and they replanned everything.At first we thought we would get married in Canada. But then we changed our minds and went with the US. M&M made multiple trips to the venue to prepare it. The contacts they had were all Canada based, so they had to find new vendors for everything and coordinate it all remotely. This was no small task.M&M were meticulous, thorough, and full of energy. They fueled our excitement during a notoriously stressful process. And as the day approached we felt excited and relatively stress free knowing that they were in control of the event.The day came and all I can say is that we were blown away. It was perfect. They took care of every detail and kept the schedule moving. The wedding was beautiful. Everyone kept commenting on how incredible it was. All of the vendors were taking pictures of their work for their instagram, which is a clear sign of their pride in the work. We could not have pictured a more perfect day. And it was because of M&M.We were completely amazed with what M&M put together. And during the process we became great friends and that made the day so much more special. Weddings are expensive events, and the best investment we made during it was M&M. There is no way we couldve had the perfect wedding without them. We will remember that day forever. Thank you, Melissa and Morgan, for creating such an amazing day.
We planned a wedding in Toronto from halfway across the world, so I knew it was especially important to have planners we trusted. Still, I was surprised at how immediately genuine Melissa and Morgan came across: I met them over Skype and didn't need to interview anyone else.We chose the partial package, but if you want a truly stress-free and hands-off experience (and if your budget allows for it), I'd recommend the full package. Melissa and Morgan have excellent taste and are very intuitive about understanding what you want, even when you aren't sure yourself.I was very budget-conscious in the planning, and we decided early on that decor was one of our lowest priorities. Still, Melissa and Morgan had the experience, creativity, and aesthetic knowhow to construct a beautiful, cohesive theme even given those limits. One staff person who worked at the venue, which hosts a lot of weddings, said that ours was the nicest they had ever seen the place look.In terms of vendors, we ended up choosing Melissa and Morgan's recommendations in almost every single case. They were upfront about each, and obliged when we asked for price quotes from alternatives. One bonus of using planners with good vendor relationships is that when anything unexpected occurs, they're more likely to be flexible: for e.g., I ordered a flower crown that didn't fit, but because Melissa and Morgan were on such friendly terms with our florist, she was very kind about re-making it on the day.Wedding planning will inevitably come with last-minute roadblocks, so having planners who are calm and capable in the face of stress is important. The week before our wedding, the boat captain we'd hired to transport guests to the island venue abruptly stopped answering all calls and emails. This is how far Melissa and Morgan went to help us: they physically WENT TO THE BOAT DOCK TO LOOK FOR THE CAPTAIN and ask for his whereabouts. No matter how thoroughly you interview your planners or think you can anticipate your needs, there will be an unexpected problem to solve. 'Locating a missing boat captain' was one of those. Being able to hand that off to people we trusted, especially with days to go before the wedding, was an enormous weight off our backs.One last (and often overlooked!) reason to hire capable planners is to free yourself to have fun on your actual wedding day. There is no possible way I could've enjoyed myself the way I did without Melissa and Morgan's help. They dealt with last minute logistical, technical, and even interpersonal snafus so that we didn't have to, and handled everything with not just professionalism, but graciousness and kindness too.Their style is very warm, non-confrontational, and prioritises thoroughness over speed. This was a great fit for me. If you're someone who needs a pushy or business-like planner, someone to whip you into shape and tell you explicitly what to do, then their style may not suit you. But if you're looking for something more personal, then you couldn't do better than these two. They come with my highest recommendation.
I could have not asked for a better duo to make our special day come true. They were there for every step of the way from start until the end. We signed up for the full package, which included the design of the wedding day. As someone who only a vague idea of what they wanted for their wedding, this was an amazing service. M+M was there to listen to what we liked and do not like when designing our wedding.The planning process was just amazing. Although responses may be a bit slow it is because they will try to get everything sorted out with the vendors before they get back to you. So do not fret. They handled all communication with vendors, which lifted the stress from our busy schedule. Never once did I felt the pressure to pick some design ideas that they proposed. I absolutely love our final meeting where we go over the rundown of the day of the wedding. They took into our request to change some items or events.Ive been to several weddings where the morning of the wedding is usually chaos and stressful. However, on the morning of my wedding, I was so relaxed because I knew M+M had handled everything so well. I was able to enjoy the process of getting ready with my girls while munching on scones and sandwiches.Our wedding was truly a dream come true from the dcor to layout. I had family and friends come up to me after the wedding praising the work of art that M+M has done. Not to mention, they raved on how sweet M+M were.To anyone planning their wedding, this duo is the fairy godparents to wedding planning and you will not regret having them by your side.
