Amy and Matt, SUMMER 2016 [ #MattAmy2016 ]

From the couple: 

In just 6 months of full service, the Annie Melissa team helped us plan a spectacular outdoor wedding reception at Markham Museum on July 2, 2016. Their creativity, talent and hard work transformed our abstract ideas into a meticulously crafted travel-themed/food truck event beyond our imaginations! We simply lost count of the number of family+friends who exclaimed (even months later), "Best wedding ever!" or "You guys just had MY dream wedding!".

With respect to service, two things that stood out. First, Annie’s resourcefulness in exploring creative possibilities. Whenever we had an idea, she took the time to talk it through with us, brainstorm possible options, and went off to explore how we might realize it on the day. As Markham Museum was a "shell" venue, every detail - right down to the last bamboo fork - had to accounted for, which her team managed marvellously. They also helped us overcome all the hurdles of booking a historical site over a long weekend (e.g., minimal indoor/kitchen facilities, day-before holiday closure).

Secondly, Annie was exceptional in building strong business relationships. Managing ~10 vendors proved to be hugely complex, but the Annie Melissa Team consistently and assertively advocated for us to ensure all services were on time and price-competitive. When the day came, my partner and I truly felt like honoured guests arriving at the venue; we were completely stress-free and enjoyed every single moment with our family and friends.

We consistently refer Annie Melissa’s services with our highest recommendations (email us at if you have questions!) and we are happy to have found a lovely friend in Annie.
