Meet Melissa

melissa_picMelissa Davis Designs, an event planning and wedding consulting firm based in South Florida, is owned and operated by Melissa Davis, a Coral Gables native. Melissa earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Art History at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey.


Melissa worked as a television commercial producer in New York City for seven years before returning to her South Florida roots. She was delighted to have the opportunity to bring her business and creative talents back to Miami when she gained ownership of her family’s twenty year old endeavor; The Sweet Treat Emporium, a gourmet food, gift boutique and chocolatier. In 1997, Melissa sold Sweet Treat to launch a full service event production and wedding planning company.


Melissa’s outstanding creative talents and her commitment to her clients has earned her recognition as one of the premiere event planners in Florida.


Melissa is the preferred event planner at the top hotels in South Florida including The Mandarin Oriental, Turnberry Isle Resort and Club, The Biltmore Hotel, The Four Seasons, St. Regis Bal Harbour, Key Biscayne, and The Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove, South Beach and Key Biscayne. Those who work with Melissa, vendors and clients alike, respect her absolute professionalism, warmth, sophistication, and creativity.


Melissa loves living in South Florida. Her interests include art & photography, gardening, entertaining (of course!) and days at the beach with her family. Melissa resides in Palmetto Bay with her husband Brian Willner and nineteen year old twins Max and Katie.
