Dear Malissa and CMT Staff,Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day happen! You were given I big challenge only a few weeks before our July 5th wedding. You were so helpful throughout the planning process and made everything so easy on us. Your level of professionalism, organization, and flexibility made working with you one of the most pleasant experiences. Your team really were great and make everything effortless and allowed us to focus on friends, family and fun! I couldn’t be happier with the way the wedding turned out and feel so blessed to have met you and the other wonderful people you introduced us to in the short time we had. You sincerely executed my vision and dreams beautifully.It was absolutely stunning!! I can’t thank you enough for making our wedding (not only actually) happen but making it an event that all our guests will remember forever. We will highly recommend you and can’t wait to work with you on our next event. With love and many thanks,Amy and AndyJuly 5, 2014

I just wanted to thank you again for everything you have done for me and my family. You truly are such a great friend and I am SO happy that you were a part of my special day! Thank you!Lots of love from DC!Caley October 11, 2013

Oh! Where to begin? Caley's wedding was a DREAM COME TRUE. We couldn't have asked for anything nicer or more organized. You were AMAZING. From beginning to end. Even through the crazy-ness of Jennifer's zipper breaking at the last minute!! To Nicky's dress bring covered in wine right as the girls were to walk out! These things are funny in retrospect but MADDENING at the moment - you handled everything with such grace and professionalism. I have to say, I was truly impressed. Thank you so much for taking such good care of Caley. For making sure that she had the BEST wedding ever. You really are the BEST!!!Love,Pete and Kristy (aka parents)October 11, 2013

There is not enough space to write or money in the world to thank you enough for everything you have done for me and my family. You truly are a blessing! Thank you for being the coolest boss ever and always bringing me snacks. I know I will miss you so much when I move but I promise to come see you often! Again I cannot express enough thanks!Love Caley October 11, 2013

We wanted you to know how much we enjoyed Ali's wedding and appreciate all of the time you put into making it such a success. Everyone had a wonderful time. Ali and Jonny had so much fun that they said they wanted to do it again. (a huge compliment to you) We truly feel as if we have a good friend in you! You took such great care of us!Thank you!Terri (aka mom)

Words cannot express our gratitude to you and all of your assistance in planning Carrie's wedding. Your professionalism, your confidence, your problem solving have made our experience a pleasure.Many, many thanks for all of these and more. We would be glad to recommend you or help further your carrier whenever possible.Pat (aka mom) and CarrieSeptember 21, 2013

I cannot begin to tell you how much you mean to me. You were with me when I was up, down, mad and happy. Wow, what a year! I could not have made it without you. You deserve so much more than I could ever give you. I did not know what to expect on our first meeting but I knew the moment you opened your mouth you were the one for us! You made me feel so taken care of even though I know I pushed the envelope at times. You not only wear the hat of event planner but conselor and friend. That's what you were to me. I will always think of you and will miss my weekly emails to you and I will continue to sing your praises for ever more.With Much Respect, Shanon (aka mom) June 7, 2013

CMT,Thank you for your wonderful work on our special day! It was truly amazing & I enjoyed every moment thanks to you all! We couldn't be more happy with how the day turned out!All the Best,Scott & Chrissy October 13, 2012

Dear Malissa,Paul and I wanted to send you a big thanks for all of the hard work and effort that you and your team put into our wedding. Thank you so much for helping me to find my vision and pulling it all together. It truly was my dream wedding and the most beautiful/important day of my life.It was such a pleasure working with you and getting to know you over this past year. Thank you for leaving your mark in our lives. Stay in touch!Thank you,Alicia and PaulJuly 28, 2012

Most importantly, I want to thank you for everything that you did for Megan & Devin!!! The wedding was absolutely beautiful and it was EVERYTHING that I wanted it to be for Megan but never thought I would be able to actually afford. So thank for that and for helping me to give my daughter the wedding that SHE dreamed of. I cannot tell you how much I will always appreciate that. And I will tell you that there was NOT one thing that I would have changed, there was nothing that I wished we had done that wasn’t done. You are amazing and along with your staff you make an unstoppable team. I am truly impressed and tell anyone that will listen the same thing. I also wanted to thank you for stepping in and taking control with the little hiccup we had with the guest at the reception. Megan was devastated (and it got worse after the reception), but you handled it so well that I am not sure what we would have done without you. So thanks again for that.Thank you,Lori May 4, 2012 Blog Featuring Megan's Wedding!

Malissa,I can't thank you enough for all your guidance from the beginning to the day of the wedding. You are an amazing coordinator.Much thanks,Linda (mom)November 9, 2012

Dear Malissa,Well it's finally here - - I wasn't sure I would make it a couple of times but I did. I beleive it was due to your calming organized self that helped me get here. Allison has loved working with you and it was a blessing to have you on this very special day!Thank you for Everything,Vicky Haskell September 29, 2012

Dear Malissa, March 24, 2012 This is a much overdue thank you note. David and I appreciate very much your assistance, guidance and motivation to get our wedding planning and executed. We do not believe it would have been possible to have the wonderful wedding we had without you. You were invaluable to our success. Friends and family all had many compliments and statements of enjoyment. I also appreciate your friendship while we went through this process. With no one else around you made the lack of close family bearable. Thank you & God Bless!Cynthia and David August 4, 2011

Hi Malissa, April 1, 2012 I don't know if you remember us, but we were married March 3, 2009 at the Contemporary Art Center. As our third anniversary has just passed, it is WAY overdue to send this email to you. I have wanted to contact you for 3 years now, but as I am sure you know, life gets in the way sometimes. :) I can't say thank you enough for helping to create the most special day of our lives. I don't know what we would've done without you. Everything ran so smooth that evening, not one glitch in the whole day! I am so appreciative of you and all your help to put that day together. Even three years later, guests from the wedding are still talking about how amazing it was! My wedding day was a relaxed, put together, wonderful experience... Everything I imagined it would be! And I want to thank you for helping to achieve that for me. Thank you so much for everything. You are wonderful at what you do. I will always remember you and how you helped us, and you will always be a part of our special day.Many Thanks,Quinn Boyette (formerly Klocko)

"Ladies, If you are planning a wedding and in the Hampton Roads area please check our Malissa Nolin Murphy at CMT Event Planning. After assisting Bill and I in our DREAM wedding, she recently sent us the most BEAUTIFUL flower bouquet I have ever seen just let us know that Bill was in her prayers during his heart surgery. Talk about taking her job to the next level and truly caring about her brides and grooms. Thank you to our dear friend Malissa, we love you!!!" March 20, 2012

Malissa,I hope you have had some time to rest and recuperate. You definitely deserve it! I hope your family wasn't too stressed out by it all. I know the Bright/Becerra families owe you a debt of gratitude from the bottom of our hearts. When I sit back and think of everything that happened over the week-end, I am amazed at what took place. It is overwhelming! It took such a team effort to pull it off. And if you had not been the captain of our team, I don't know what we would have done. You are amazing!! You definitely have a gift for working with people under the most difficult of times - no matter what the circumstance. Your organizational skills and your ability to remain calm saved our wedding. Words cannot describe how grateful we are for what you did. We just can't thank you enough. I feel like you have become our friend for life and if my family can ever do anything for you please let me know. With love and appreciation,The Bright/Becerra Families August 27, 2011 Hurricane Irene Wedding

Kim said to me “Malissa is an very organized wedding planner and knows what to say to get everyone on the same page. Any bride who hires her is getting the best.” Pat

Malissa, Words can't begin to express what a wonderful job you did for Lauren and Bill's enchanted evening! Every detail was taken care of effortlessly! Lauren's wish for me to enjoy her wedding came true! Thank you again! Sincerely Peggy Sparrow (aka Mother of the Bride) June 4, 2011

Malissa and CMT,Thank you so much for making my wedding day perfect in everyway! I could not have asked for a better, more amazing day! From dressing 8 girls and keeping 8 guys in line, you never let me stress for a single moment! You did an amazing job and I enjoyed every moment of the day! Thank you so much! Love Chris and Brooke Bray March 26, 2011

Malissa,Thanks again from Al and I for helping to make our wedding a beautiful and elegant affair for us, as well as our closest relatives and friends. It was beautiful, special and as I had envisioned. I continue to receive compliments from our guests on the great time that they had. Best Regards, TanyaDecember 11, 2010

Dear Malissa,Steve and I (and the happy couple!) wanted to express our sincere appreciation for everything you did to make this event the perfect wedding it was. There is no way we could have pulled this off without you! Your attention to detail throughout all the planning, and just knowing you were there to help, gave us the peace of mind and confidence to relax and enjoy the occasion. The Zellners November 20, 2010

Malissa, I cannot believe the day is almost here! I am going to miss our daily emails and planning sessions. It has been a blast working with you and we couldn't have ever put together this wedding without your help. We will be friends always, and we'll always stay in touch! Love Kelly and Chris October 16, 2010

Malissa, You have touched our lives in a very special way. My daughters have wonderful memories of their weddings and you have shared in their happiness with them. I will be forever grateful to you. You will always have a special place in our hearts and our lives. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! DawnOctober 16, 2010

Malissa, I am so grateful for all your hard work and organized well informed help. You have been a god send! Thank you seems so little after all you have done and the million emails you've made. Your interview on the TV at Maya's said that "by the end you feel like family." I saw that yesterday and said, "how true!" Thanks for always being straight forward and on top of everything. Thanks for doing an amazing job! I know it will be beautiful and smooth because of you! I hope we stay in touch. Thank you!Always, Sarah and JohnSeptember 25, 2010

We wanted to say thank you again for doing such an amazing job with the wedding! Everything turned out perfect and all our guests have told us they had such a great time! I just wanted to say thank you for being so patient and supportive throughout the whole process. We were very anxious about planning a wedding, but you made the experience so stress-free and fun! All of the vendors you recommended: caterer, DJ, cake designer and hair/makeup etc. were so professional and the best of the best. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We were able to have relax and have fun at the wedding instead of worrying about the details. I will definitely recommend you to all my friends! Thank you for helping to create the happiest day of our lives! Kristen and JasonAugust 21, 2010

I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work at our wedding! The event was beautiful! I will be recommending CMT to anyone who needs a great coordinator! Thank you again Jordan & Sarah Urness Wedding May 22, 2010

Thank you for everything! I don't think our wedding would have turned out so perfect if it wasn't for you. Sincerely Christina & Travis :) Wedding May 16, 2010

Dear Malissa,It's been such a great pleasure working with you during the past 14 months. We appreciate everything you've done, especially the permit process - definitely above and beyond! Your serenity kept us calm too and the entire experience has been a pleasure, smooth and joyful - just as we'd hoped.With deep appreciation,Ann, Ted, Claire and WillMay 30, 2010

What to say to the person whom I owe the most thanks? You are perfection. Coming into the wedding process, I knew little to nothing about planning this special day. From your help with the invitations “honor” or “honour”, your detailed budget, the minute-to-minute timeline, it all made a world of difference.I know I must have worn you thin with my countless emails, but your never swaying professional advice always seemed to solve the problem, regardless of how big or small. You have a true talent and made me feel at ease as I walked through the biggest day of my life. I honestly could not have done this without you. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Bea Steeves October 17, 2009

Dear Malissa,Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful wedding planning for Laura and Chris. I am so happy that we were able to have this amazing day for them especially knowing that neither Laura or I were in Norfolk for much of the planning So we thank you for being there and going beyond the call of duty to pull things together while Laura was in Japan.Your cool calmness was reassuring especially during wedding dress "malfuncting" your recommendations for vendros was gratefully received and I have already told you how outstanding and helpful the vendors were.Thanks again for a beautiful wedding, better than we all could have imagined. Even the weather was perfect. How did you do that?At the end of the evening as we said good-bye to Laura and Chris, Don and I were struck by how blissfully happy they appeared. They looked like a million bucks. It has been a perfect day of celebrating life with family and friends. We wish you many more happy brides and grooms this wedding season! Regards,Diane Beeman (mom)

Malissa,As we approach wedding season I find myself comparing your work, ideas, and my wedding with every other wedding I see or hear about. And honestly, I haven't seen a thing that I wish I would have had or experienced anything I wish we would've done. Thank you so much for all your hard work and making our day so wonderful. Chris' sister is getting married in June and we just received her invitation. As I pulled it out of the mailbox I couldn't help but think how tacky it looked to have our address merely printed on it. I am so glad you had me address all of mine personally, although I can't say I enjoyed it! Handwriting them really did give it a little something more and I feel as though it was a bit classier that way too. When we look back on October 11, 2008 Chris and I agree that it really was a Perfect Day!Thanks again for all your wonderful work!Michelle AdamsApril 28, 2009

Hey Malissa!I hope that you are doing really well! I wanted to thank you again for doing such a wonderful job the day of the wedding. Everyone had a blast and I wish I could relive that day again. All of our family members and friends were impressed by your work. The day went so smoothly and I know I never had anything to worry or stress about leading up to the wedding. Thank you again for everything! You will always be highly recommended by me and my family!Sincerely,Allison PiselMalissa,So, I want to give you a big thank you for all your work this past year and a half. But especially this past weekend. I could not have done this without you. The wedding day was perfect!! Everything went so well!! I was really able to enjoy the whole day. Allison I know was so happy. It was just as she had dreamed it would be. You are such a wonderful person to work with and an expert at everything concerning weddings. Thank you for making my daughters wedding day something I will never forget. With warmest regards,Andrea Pisel (mom)

Dear Malissa, I want to shout it from a mountaintop for everyone to hear!! “It” being that you are the most FABULOUS wedding planner there could ever be! You left no stone unturned, went beyond the call of duty and did so much MORE than you promised before, during and after our wedding. You made one of the most stressful days and events of our lives so easy for us. We didn’t have to do a thing other than be there and enjoy our guest and the celebration, and then just drive home! You did it ALL, and I do mean ALL! However, it is so much more than that you made a hectic day so smooth and easy. As you know, our wedding planning hit a really rocky road when our venue unexpectedly decided to do a major renovation. The renovation was supposed to have been completed well before our date but ran way over the deadline by months. With less then 12 weeks left we had to shift gears quickly and find and acceptable “stand by” venue in the event the first one was not ready. Malissa, when you got word of our dilemma you jumped in with both feet to come to our rescue and helped with our negotiations. We actually had to plan two separate weddings in two separate locations! In the end, we did not get the “official” word, until 1½ days before the wedding, that we could NOT have the reception at our original venue! The disappointment, headache and stress of all this would have been a ten fold without wonderful you and your very special ways. The testimonial that these words are sincere is that we have booked another wedding with you in June of 2009. We could never ever fell that anyone else could fill your shoes – you have set the standards extremely high! Malissa, words cannot express our gratitude for all that you have done for us. A million heartfelt thank you’s. Yours truly, Marti and Bill Teague

I do not even know where to begin to thank you for all you've done! You have been truly wonderful. I truly appreciate all of your hard work to make sure that my wedding would be a dream come true because it was exactly that! I don't know how we could have done it without you. Everything went too smoothly and I know that was because of you. I know you went above and beyond to help us and I'm so thankful to you for that! It truly has been a great pleasure working with you and it's been a lot of fun. I will miss working with you on my wedding but know we have my sister's to look forward to! And besides, that is why we adopted you into our family. Because we still want to see you even when all the weddings are over. I really do look forward to helping you with events also. But most importantly I want you to know it has been great to have you not only as my wedding coordinator but more importantly as a friend! Thank you again for everything! Love always, Carrie

Malissa, There is so much to say! I remember coming to you with only three months to plan my wedding and plenty to do! Yet, you always remained calm, confident and very reassuring. Josh and I always tell people that if it wasn't for you that our wedding would have made it quite obvious to the world that we only had three months to coordinate everything. Instead our wedding turned out to be a beautiful event that people continue to compliment us on. Of course we always have to give credit to you and your amazing assistance and coordination of very last detail. Everytime we left your office we talked excitedly the whole way home about how helpful you were to us and how glad, glad, glad were were that we found you! After meeting you at the rehearsal dinner my pastor told me, "You've got a real sweet girl taking care of you guys." He was so right, you are sweet and his words "taking care of you guys" said it exactly right. that's what you do best. Thanks so much, Malissa, for letting us borrow your gifts and talents for our wedding day. Thanks so much for taking care of us... We'll miss working with you and seeing your ready smile and hearing your infectious laugh! You are one of a kind!With all our thanks, Helen and Josh Abernathy

Thank you for executing all of my ideas. When I finally walked into the church and saw how beautiful everything was, I could finally rest and have fun. Thank you for helping make our dreams come true. I can absolutely say that my wedding was "PERFECT".DaVonna and KendrickI'm not sure if you remember me or not, but you stepped in last year for my wedding. Yesterday, Greg and I celebrated our one year anniversary and we I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for all of your hard work. It was a joy working with you and I am so grateful to you for stepping in when you did. You constantly amazed us! You kept our sanity in line, and allowed us the security of knowing that we were in good hands. Our wedding was a day I'll always treasure. I really appreciate all that you did for us, we can't thank you enough. I do hope that all is well with you and your business. I'm sure this a busy time for weddings! We wish you all the best in the future, and we're so glad to have met you! With warm regards, Lyntisha & Greg

I miss you already It's weird to open my e-mail and not see a note from you. Thank you for making my day so wonderful. You definately exceeded my expectations. I cannot thank you enough for everything. We have gotten so many comments about our wedding and it all goes to you. I tell everyone if it wasn't for you, my wedding wouldn't have turned out like it did. People are still talking about the wedding a week later. Everyone did complement you for not being a crazy wedding consultant. Apparently some wedding consultants are crazy. haha! Anyway, just wanted to say I miss you and thank you for everything. Patricia & Chris I want to thank you for all your hard work. You are the best. Everyone was extremely complimentary of the whole wedding and we told them that it was not us but you. I will recommend you to everyone I know!!!!Thank you Thank you thank you!!!!Susan Smith - Mother of Patricia Jon and I wanted to thank you and your team for EVERYTHING! I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful or perfect wedding. Everything went so well thanks to you. Everyone we have talked to said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they went to and they all had a great time. Thank you so much. I really enjoyed working with and getting to know you over the last year. Lisa Rhodes "Thank you again for everything. It was so easy to work with you. Everyone in our family says thank you also for the great work at the wedding & reception. To tell you the truth, most of my family was really expecting to do more, but I just kept telling them that you have everything handled already. So that was nice that they didn't have to worry about too many details and they were able to enjoy themselves as well. Arnold & I are very grateful. I don't know how you do it week after week of putting the same 110% efort for all your brides. We know you work with many other brides, but you have made us feel like our wedding is the only wedding you have. And for that, thank you again!"-- Arnold & Maryjane --

Malissa,Just a small note to thank you and your staff for the wonderful wedding that you helped plan and coordinate for Heather and Matt. I would never have been able to pull this off without your help. Your staff was absolutely fantastic and I would have never known they were there to make sure that things got done. I would be honored to give anyone a recommendation to use your services. I just could not say enough.Thank you so very very muchSincerelyBonnie Rumpf
