"Working with B Astonished Events was an incredible experience! I could not have asked for a better team! They helped me in every aspect of my event from top to bottom. They also made great suggestions for other vendors to make sure my wedding went off without a hitch! The day was perfect, and I can wholeheartedly attest that to working with B Astonished Events and our lead planner Melissa. I would highly recommend them for any event that you need to plan especially weddings. Melissa was extremely organized, professional, and responsive. If I ever had a question she was usually two steps ahead and it was already answered. Her design esthetic was also right up my alley. I really allowed her to plan it as she saw fit because I knew the color scheme I wanted, but I couldn’t see the vision beyond that. Melissa hand crafted a mood (vision) board that was like a work of art that really brought the vision to life! I think allowing her to really work her magic made the experience even better. Melissa was also able to suggest things that I wouldn’t have even thought of because she has been in this industry for so long. My wedding day was beyond perfect and the planning beforehand made it even more perfect because everything was so organized and effortless."

"Melissa and her team were a God-send for sure! No matter how busy she was, Melissa always responded to messages very, very promptly. I am going to miss working with Melissa and the team over at B Astonished Events. We can not wait for the next big exciting event."

"My husband and I hired B Astonished Events a week after getting engaged and it was the best investment we made for our special day. This incredible team planned, designed and executed our 6 month engagement in less than 4 months!! We were ahead of schedule and ready to go but unfortunately COVID-19 hit and we were forced to postpone our special day. Despite the abrupt change, B Astonished not only aided in making our original wedding ceremony a dream and intimate but they also ensured that our postponed wedding celebration went on without a hitch. The ongoing communication, connections to quality vendors, accessibility, thorough meetings, reminders, thoughtfulness and support was an invaluable asset to making our wedding planning season stress-free and fun! We encourage any engaged couple to invest in the best event planning company to ensure the focus can be on preparing for marriage and not stressing over the wedding planning process!"
