Malissa Moniz ~ associate planner

“I don’t have enough room to write my amazing experience I had working directly with Malissa.  From emails, phone calls, meetings, her own tips, and suggestions, the list goes on and on.  She is so amazing at what she does, I wouldn’t have done my wedding without her!”

It’s all in the details for this dedicated, personable, and romantic soul.   Shortly after being introduced to the world of weddings Malissa realized she had found her true career calling.  As a recent dg Academy graduate Malissa joined the dg team and is quickly becoming one of our most requested planners.

“I love that I am able to assist with creating a truly authentic day that represents the couple and who they are. Many people don’t know where to begin with planning, and I love being able to simplify the process and turn it into something fun rather than something stressful. It’s not just about checking things off a list, but learning who each individual bride is and what they love, and investing myself in their wedding. Watching my couples and their guests have an amazing time on their special day is what it’s all about. My couples want to enjoy themselves stress-free, and witnessing that happening is by far the most rewarding part of what I do!”

Malissa’s ideal client is the authentic and passionate couple who are not afraid to dream big!  “Anything is possible after that”, she says.  Although Malissa can bring out the best in any wedding style, her personal favorite is one she likes to refer to as classy and creative — where she can suggest a nice balance between personal thoughtful touches and more elegant timeless elements.

Words of Thanks from Malissa’s clients…

We are very pleased and happy with the work that Malissa is doing! Malissa has been fabulous, arranging our appointments and providing guidance on what we need for the day, all the while taking into consideration what works with our vision. She is very kind, generous, genuine and we can’t imagine planning this wedding without her. No Malissa = no wedding! She’s instrumental in this whole process. We’re lucky to have her. We are very happy with her as our wedding planner, and we can’t imagine it any other way.

Working with Malissa through the whole process was absolutely amazing. Coming from a project management background, I should have been able to handle it all with no problem. It quickly proved to be a huge task to take on, and we needed someone to be able to guide us towards the best vendors in the city.

Malissa was that central person for us. She guided us through the entire process, taking the time to understand our vision, offering her guidance and connecting us to all the right people. I was so impressed by how she wrapped it all together and executed the day flawlessly. It was the best money we ever spent!

Thank you so much for your help leading up to the wedding and during the day. Without you, the day wouldn’t have run as smoothly or as stress-free. We’re so happy you could’ve been a part of it!

Malissa was absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with. I had Malissa take over a few months before the wedding and she provided excellent day-of coordination to ensure the wedding/reception day ran smoothly.

Malissa took all of my stresses away on my wedding day and I’m so glad I went with DreamGroup Productions. She was very warm, friendly and very fun and professional.

Thanks to DreamGroup and Malissa, my wedding day ran smoothly and turned out beautifully!

Malissa was very professional and very attentive, and made our wedding run very smoothly on the day. [She is] amazing, and so is everyone else that we worked with from Dream Group.

I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

We had such a wonderful experience with Malissa right from start to finish. My daughter’s wedding was August 29th – the day the power was out. Malissa took control of the situation and the wedding was a huge success. I would recommend your companies services 10 times out of ten.

Where do I begin. We are over the moon thrilled with the service we received from DreamGroup Planners.

Malissa Moniz was our main coordinator, as well as assistants Vanessa, Nicole, and Raphael. These girls not only went above and beyond for every single issue or situation thrown their way, but most importantly they made our day run so smooth and organized. They were by far the best money spent on this wedding.

I don’t have enough room to write my amazing experience I had working directly with Malissa. From emails, phone calls, meetings, her own tips, and suggestions, the list goes on and on. She is so amazing at what she does, I wouldn’t have done my wedding without her!

Thank you DreamGroup- you helped make our wedding more beautiful than we could have ever dreamed! XO

I’m not sure I can describe just how wonderful Jill and Malissa (with help from Kelsey) were in helping with our wedding.

My main goal in working with DreamGroup was to be able to have fun on my wedding day and not worry about the details and they definitely made that happen. Our wedding was truly the best day ever.

With Jill and Malissa taking over for all the nitty gritty details and hard work, my now husband and I (and our families) were able to relax and really enjoy every second of our special day. They took care of absolutely everything, from arranging details with vendors, ensuring the set up was perfect, managing timing throughout the day, and packing up all the gifts/cards, decorations and leftover cake. Jill even packed up all of our personal decor items and drove them to my mom’s house the next day! Seriously above and beyond!

Although Jill was technically our day-of coordinator, she provided assistance all throughout the planning process – all 18 months of it! She was incredibly responsive to my emails and my many questions. With Jill’s support I actually had a great time planning the wedding (with little to no bridezilla moments) and I feel like we were in great hands throughout the whole process.

I would definitely recommend DreamGroup (especially Jill and Malissa) to other brides. And for grooms, my husband agrees – he says it was the best money we spent on the wedding!
