Our story is, at its core, a love story. We like to think of ourselves as pioneers of online dating, from way back when Melissa was still in high school, during the days of "MSN Chat". Morgan had just moved to Toronto for school and a younger girl still out in Western Canada was certainly not on his radar. But the chance meeting created an immediate connection that was undeniable and we quickly fell in love. Melissa decided to take a leap and moved to Toronto for her post secondary school to be near Morgan. Wanting to make our own path and spend as much time together as possible; Lustre Events was soon born. We continue to inspire, support, and push one another to be our best in both life and business. Since 2007, we've produced over one hundred and fifty weddings together and have mastered the fine art of making a meticulously planned event feel spontaneous and effortless. We are driven by happiness, inspired by great food, family, and travel, and share an affection for entertaining that dates back to our childhoods! Our work has been featured on Martha Stewart Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes, Style Me Pretty, Grey Likes Weddings, Wedding Chicks, Ruffled, 100 Layer Cake, Weddingbells Magazine, and many more!
Melissa has been producing weddings and special events, both big and small, for twelve fabulous years. Armed with a big heart and smile, sense of humour, and a unique design style, she's a quintessential "people person" and a true left brain/right brain split. In 2007, she branched out on her own to follow a dream - and the rest, as they say, is history. Melissa was born and raised in Alberta but has proudly called Toronto home for the last 15 years. She enjoys cooking, camping (glamping!), movies of many genres, traveling, road trips, pasta, time at home with her hubby, and celebrating life's special moments whenever possible. She would't complain about any of the above including a good Margarita either!
Morgan has been part of the event world for 15 years, starting in sound and lighting design prior to joining forces with Melissa in 2007 to enter the world of weddings! He's especially passionate about, as he calls it "wedding magic". The synergy between all event elements that will make a lasting imprint on your guests lifelong memories. His contagious laugh and warm demeanour put people at ease when they see his dedication first hand, towards all the behind the scenes logistics that go into pulling it off. Morgan is a proud Canadian prairie boy with strong family roots. He enjoys immersing himself in new cultures, coffee, recipe hunting, exploring nature, playing music, audio books, baking bread, musicals, and working with his lovely wife!
