-Melissa and Elsa
Melissa feels so lucky that her job is also one of her passions. She is co-owner of ME Weddings and a full time mommy of 2. Melissa comes from a family of 4 with very supportive parents and an amazing brother. She was fortunate enough to meet her husband during her first year in college and dated him for 10 years before finally tying the knot! He was also the one that introduced her to the E (Elsa) in ME (thanks hubby!). =) When she is not working on her next event you will find her spending time with family, going on play dates or hosting get-togethers with friends. Work life balance is one of the things she strives for most in life so if she had a choice of any job, she would be exactly where she is.

Favorite Thing About Weddings: Becoming friends with our couples and then seeing the bride and groom's reactions as the day unfolds
Elsa feels so blessed and fortunate to be where she is in life. A successful business owner with the best business partner and team, a proud mommy to the most adorable and fun little girl, and a happy wife to the most amazing husband. When she is not working on events, she loves spending time with family and friends, whether it is going on vacation, kiddie play dates, eating a delicious meal, or just vegging out in front of the TV. Ironically, Elsa and her husband also met during their first year in college and dated 10 years before getting married.

Lauren grew up in the Huntington Beach area and although she enjoys the sunshine, she has not been to the beach in over 5 years and would rather bundle up and venture to the cold weather and snow. She spent a lot of her life working with flowers, which is what sparked her interest in event planning. When Lauren is not busy working, she loves meeting people from all walks of life, and hopes to travel as much as possible because she feels there is so much to see in this beautiful world.

Vicky is so excited to be able to witness dreams come true with the ME Weddings gals and is a forever fan of love. As a total girl's girl, Vicky couldn't be happier celebrating a bride on her special day and getting to know each couple's love story. She's currently loving and living in Silver Lake, probably shopping online at given moment, and also on a serious avocado toast diet. When she's not working, you can most likely find her at her local spin or pilates studio or on a plane headed to the Bay!
