I met Melissa in August of 2011 and my wedding was set for September 2011. I live in the Atlanta area and drove to chattanoooga, tn, where I was having my wedding. I discussed what I wanted for my wedding and Melissa made it happen. I was nervous the whole month of August because I couldn't just drive to Chattanooga each week to check on the progress, but I
was highly impressed when the day arrived. She was at the sight early and the flowers were very beautiful. She also made sure they were the exact color that I was looking for.
The only downside was that I felt like she should have checked in with me before she left the premises. I was just thankful that when I came out of my seclusion that everything was like it needed to be. It would have been an added bonus if she could have reassured me that everything was ok.
Outside of that, the service was great and I would definitely recommend her to others! You will definitely get your moneys worth.
I wish I could find the words to describe our wedding. It was so beautiful.
I want to thank you. The flowers were just fabulous! The arrangements were so creative. You are truly one of the most creative people I have met. I would gladly recommend you
All my friends commented on how lovely the ceremony was. And the reception was just as good.
Best Florist and Coordinator in town!.
My flowers were absolutely gorgeous. Melissa was wonderful to work with during the whole wedding.
My wedding was truly a dream come true!
Professional wedding coordinator and very talented floral specialist.
Melissa was a wonderful wedding coordinator and very talented decorator for our daughter's wedding. The wedding had the most beautiful flowers, and everything ran so smoothly. Melissa knows what needs to be done, and exactly how to make a wedding a wonderful memory.
I loved the way she listened to my daughter and saw that things went exactly the way my daughter wanted it. Even when Melissa was not in favor of some of my daughter's ideas, she carried them out in the most professional manner, and was very gracious to change things to please my daughter. Melissa took care of everthing, the day of the wedding. My husband and I did not have to worry about a thing, because we knew that Melissa was taking care of all the details. (provided lunch for the bridal party, helped with sashes and bows, took care of dinner for the bride and groom, assisted the wedding party all day and all night, made sure honeymoon luggage was in the limo, - you name it and she had taken care of it.)
I highly recommend this professional wedding coordinator and decorating artist to any bride who is looking for a beautiful wedding. Sincerely- Barbara

Avoid at all costs! She ruined my wedding..
I found myself planning a wedding from 2000 miles away. I depended on my planner to help me through the process, I unfortunately chose Melissa Hill. While she was one of the most comforting voices during my planning, in the end she showed her true colors. Not only did she not listen to my wants, she showed complete disregard for the contract we signed. I was promised that her husband would be there to help with the groom & groomsmen (he never showed) and only because I reminded the female "assistant" that they were in need of a little help did she go and gather them, put them on the bus and then HELD them! They were to go to the church and be photographed! Once the wed. party arrived at the church she decided to hold it again, what was she thinking? This caused the bus to be late picking up all the guests. She was heard saying "well that's what you get for getting one bus", was she trying to sabotage my wedding? This attitude was the only consistancy she provided.
On to the ceremony. I spent months and months planning the wedding of my dreams only to have them crushed by the dreadful Melissa Hill. My flowers, instead of looking Spring like, looked DEAD. The branches were to have greenery with blooms, not dead branches with obviously hot glue gunned petals. The appearance was to be a modern parklike setting in shades of white, the only color was to be the bouquet's. The main ceremony centerpiece ended up being pink & red roses, my chosen flower was dogwood, back up was orchids. I could go on and on listing problems, but I think any bride to be can see what she did to my wedding memories. She was also overheard saying to one of her assistants " just ask daddy for more money" while she was dressing in the church bathroom in front of the bridesmaids, 3 of which were my sisters.
I had a budget that would have allowed for a far more exquisite wedding and because Melissa Hill has no skills as a wedding planner mine was only half of what it should have been. Be afraid.
