Love notes

Thank you to all our wonderful clients who have taken the time to share their words with us. The team at Coastal Weddings and Events work very hard to create gorgeous and well run celebrations for our clients. We don’t have the space to include all of the lovely messages and emails we have received, but here are a few recent notes of appreciation…

Hi Melissa, I wanted to thank you so much for all you did to help us with the wedding. You were co-operative and fun to work with. The tent looked amazing and we couldn’t have been happier with the way you set up the tables and put out our flowers, decorations etc. The day went so well and you totally helped Christina and I to feel relaxed and even calm You and your staff also did a great job of getting everything packed up that night and back to our villa. Thank you so much, we really felt the wedding was magical!!!


“The staff at Coastal Weddings and Events were amazing! Melissa was a huge help in the planning stages, and the execution by her team on the day-of was more than we could have hoped for. Melissa is always on the ball, quick to respond, has lots of creative ideas, was able to execute our vision, and went over and above in terms of helping us make our dream wedding come true. Melissa really helped us organized our ideas, she was very patient with us, even in the craziest days leading up to the wedding. I can’t say enough about what an amazing support Melissa was, and have zero hesitations about recommending Melissa and her team for any brides out there looking to work with a professional on the Sunshine Coast!”

Hi Melissa,

Just wanted to send you a quick thank you again for the beautiful decorations and fantastic flowers. We received so many compliments on the decorations and you did truly deliver on all we had discussed.

I would gladly recommend you to my friends and provide an excellent reference if requested.

Melissa and crew did the most amazing job helping with our wedding at Pender Harbour! You know the service is great, when you hardly notice them at all! Everything was in its’ place at just the right time. THANKS!!!!


We used Coastal Weddings for our wedding in Vancouver and they were fantastic. They did all the important thinking about things that we could have easily overlooked. They made suggestions and recommendations that were really helpful and which made the day even better. It provided great peace of mind to have all these details taken care of. Everything went smoothly and our day was perfect! Thank you so much!


I can’t imagine planning a wedding with out help from Coastal Weddings and Events! They made sure everything was organized and on schedule every step of the way. There were so many things that I hadn’t even thought of until Melissa brought them to my attention in the meetings we had weeks before the wedding. Even if you consider yourself an organized person it’s impossible to cover all the details by yourself! After months of planning you owe it to yourself to have a perfect day and with Coastal Weddings and Events that’s exactly what you will get!


My husband and I used Melissa as our wedding coordinator and could not have been happier with her services. She was able to help us with all of our requests but I know she did so many more tasks that I never even considered. By having Melissa there, my husband and I (and my mom) were able to relax and not stress about details. Throughout the day she never looked concerned, worried or stressed and was very proactive. I did not think that having a coordinator would have been so beneficial but was amazed at how much Melissa took on – it helped me relax and enjoy our wedding day. I am so happy that we decided to use her services and would recommend her to anyone who is getting married.

I’ve worked with Melissa Tripp on events and projects off and on for more than 10 years. She is a terrific event planner and certainly the calmest. While everyone else is running crazy, Melissa is focused and getting the job done. She’s extremely competent and professional. When I’m looking to get an event organized, I go to Melissa … and so should you.

If you are looking for someone to organize an event for you, look no further than Melissa Tripp. She is efficient, well-organized and innovative. Your event will be one to remember.

Coastal weddings and events made our day. Beautiful decor, and a great eye for detail. They made it so easy for us from set up to take down. I highly recommend the photo booth it was a hit our guests loved it as did we! Thank you coastal weddings and events!

Melissa’s creativity and attention to detail are beyond words… we can’t thank her and her team enough for everything that they did. We gave her a vision and she took it to another level and the execution was flawless! Thank you so much for making the event sooooo unbelievably beautiful!!!

If you’re having a wedding on The Sunshine Coast you’re crazy not to contact Melissa to help out with your planning. Her pricing is extremely reasonable, she know the coast inside and out, and has great relationships with all the vendors out there. She also has an amazing selection of rentals and was able to track down some crazy rental requests we had if she didn’t have them. Her day-of services were priceless and the decor set up was exactly if not better than we had imained. We had an amazing wedding at The Painted Boat and the team at Coastal Weddings played a big part in making sure it all came together without a hitch. You owe it to yourself to at least give her a call if you’re having a wedding on the Sunshine Coast.
