Melissa Twist Events (MTE), established in 2017, is a boutique Wedding and Special Event Company located within South Georgian Bay. I strive to create a magical, unforgettable experience for every wedding and event I plan and execute. It’s essential to spend the time understanding the most significant elements of the wedding day and I focus on them to create a memorable and personalized wedding for each couple.
All MTE packages are customizable to ensure couples’ have the best experience possible. MTE is unique as I always work directly with my clients, however, I have a team I bring in for larger set-ups, but will always be the one executing the details on the big day. With more than 15 years of work and educational experience, I am an expert in events, weddings and prop styling. This has enhanced my ability to be creative, adding a unique flair to each event I have organized.
The wedding and special event industry has always been a passion of mine, even from a very young age. I am one of the lucky people that was able to turn that passion into a career. I made the move from planning events in Toronto to Collingwood five years ago and haven't looked back. I love planning weddings because it is an occasion that brings out the best in people. I love seeing the whole event come together and how happy people are. It is amazing to watch the event spaces transform and people fly from all over the world to take part in a couples’ magical day. The beauty of the wedding is what makes me work hard and want to continue to be part of this truly amazing industry.
When it comes to the wedding day, it is hard to name just one part that is my favourite but if I had to narrow it down it would be when the couples’ get to see their vision become a reality. As I typically work with couples for over a year in advance of their wedding, they are so happy when they get to see all their hard work come to life. Being able to plan events with Georgian Bay as a backdrop is a dream come true!
