With over 18 years of experience, our team has built relationships with professional vendors all over the world and have the knowledge and experience to handle anything that may occur throughout the planning as well as the day of. (No joke, one time we had 30 minutes to find an officiant and found one! We could write a book with all of our wedding stories!)
What sets Bliss Events & Co apart is this is our full-time job and main focus. What does this mean to you? We are available anytime - day or night, Monday -Sunday and you come first! We also have a team of junior planners that can assist us with larger weddings. So there is no wedding too large or too small. Because of our junior planners, we can work with any size budget!

Meet the Team!
Hello! I am the founder of Bliss Events & Co. With 18 years of experience in the wedding industry and an absolute passion for it I strive to make each event memorable for my clients. Travel is also my other passion! Destination weddings, honeymoons, and elopements are my specialty.
Co-Owner and Senior Event Planner
Born and raised in Southend Louisville, attend Holy Cross High School where I met and later married my high school sweetheart, David Fehr.
I graduated at the University of Louisville with a degree in Marketing in 2000. It wasn't until years of working in ad agencies and marketing departments that I found my love for event planning. I started my event planning career planning corporate events with budgets ranging from $2,000 to $200,000!
In 2017, I changed my focus to weddings only and joined Melinda at Bliss Events. I still use the same caterers, photographers, etc. today that I did back when I started in 2006! And that is what sets me apart from other planners- I have very long-standing relationships with some of the best vendors in the industry!
Hi I’m Abby Ellis! I was born and raised in a small town in southern Indiana.

I am a mother of one, so far, to a little boy named Jamie. I met Melinda through a wedding I happened to be a bridesmaid in, and about a year later I began working for her and Bliss Events.
