We craft experience-rich weddings rooted in a thoughtful blend of style and substance—for couples seeking a deeply supportive journey to a remarkable event.
…and inspired by you
Ours is a planning house built on thoughtful, kindness-led wedding planning. We create an atmosphere of ease and enjoyment for you and yours, pour our whole hearts into giving life to the guest experience you’re envisioning—and always advocate for your best interests by asking ourselves why we’re doing something and how it benefits you before we ever sketch, sign or select a single thing.
Whether you’re envisioning a waterfront destination wedding amongst the storied charm of Charleston—or a vibrant affair alive with the energy of New York City (and complete with Champagne-fueled shenanigans)—what’s important to you isn’t just what your guests see, but what they feel. More so than a surface-level stunning celebration, you want your wedding to conjure up emotions today—and to live on in the hearts of your guests for years to come.
I find so much joy in the act of orchestrating things behind-the-scenes. Creating little pockets of delight that stop you and your guests in your tracks. Coordinating a million moving parts with an amazing vendor team. Buzzing around the getting-ready suite and attending to everyone’s needs (my favorite part!).
As a lifelong event manager and born leader, I love executing an elaborate event while keeping things effortless for you—so you can pause, stay present, and savor each moment of bliss your engagement and wedding day bring you.
I live for all of it.
…and find yourself immersed in a radiant environment filled with your favorite people—all smiles and champagne. You don’t worry for a single second about what comes next—you have a team of experts taking care of that diligently and discreetly. Instead, you simply revel in this rare feeling: everything is exactly as it should be, and nothing has ever felt quite as meaningful.
You walk into your wedding…
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Melissa and her incredible talents. From coordination to design to every little detail in between, she has you taken care of. She is professional, enthusiastic and FUN. You will love her ideas and seeing your vision come to life is an experience all in its own. She nailed the decor and details to the dinner. It looked like something out of a magazine. All of our guests were blown away with what she designed.
“Wow! What an amazing wedding planner! The wedding day itself turned out perfect. We can't say enough about how attentive Melissa and her team were to every single detail. She managed all of the vendors and guests to the point where we didn't need to worry about anything.”
Melissa Brown of SBM Event Company was invaluable. Melissa together with our vendors created a magical Event Venue in our backyard. A clear top tent with full floor and fairy lights, a champagne wall, an exceptional lay-out of head and guest tables and clusters of couch and chair seating under the tent. It was truly a Garden setting that made my daughter’s wedding day more special than she could have imagined. Melissa’s attention to detail was magnificent! She has quite a gift!
Working with SBM was an absolute dream! Melissa is a rockstar. She did an incredible job designing and bringing our wedding day vision to life - I was truly speechless when I saw our venue on our wedding day. I cannot thank her enough for her amazing support throughout our wedding planning process - we literally couldn't have done it without her
