Melissa, or friends would call her, “Hostess with the mostess,” has been passionate about organizing and decorating events since graduating from Cal State Fullerton. A college course in Live Entertainment sparked her interest in planning events, but it wasn’t until 2012 when it came to planning a friend’s wedding that she started Mellie Bee Events. After 5 years of doing event planning on the side, Melissa is now committed into Event & Wedding Planning full time. It is where she can unleash her creative mind to plan in detail, organize, and execute beautiful weddings and events. As stressful as planning can seem to others, Melissa finds that the relationship she builds with her clients and the delayed gratification of success for each event is what motivates her to continue planning one event to another. Besides planning, Melissa enjoys spending time with her better half and two daughters, photography, DIY crafts and baking.
