Danae + Rashawn

"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."

Brittany + Adrian

"B Astonished was amazing in every aspect of planning. The vendors they recommended were all of great quality! B Astonished was very responsive whenever we had questions or concerns, they were also very flexible. On the day of our wedding they were beyond patient with us and made sure our day was nothing less than perfect!"

Valerie + Bill

"I can’t even put into words how incredible Melissa and her team were for the planning and execution of our wedding day! As a busy teacher I knew planning a wedding would be stressful and overwhelming for me. Let me tell you...all of the stress, pressure, and overwhelming feelings were completely eliminated during the planning process for me, thanks to the B Astonished team! When I had my initial planning meeting with Melissa she was very professional, joyful and open to all of my ideas. From day one she always made herself available to me. B Astonished goes ABOVE AND BEYOND for their clients and we highly recommend them! We are just so thankful for them! They created and delivered the wedding of our dreams!"
