HOW WE STARTED
B Astonished Events, LLC started out as a social
outlet for two young aspiring entrepreneurs in the
Greater Washington, DC-Maryland-Virginia area.
After planning many successful events such as
birthday parties, graduation celebrations, baby
showers, and wedding anniversaries for family and
friends, it was then that their strong passion for
weddings and events was discovered.
With ambition, commitment, and determination,
B Astonished Events was established in 2014. B Astonished Events is now fully ran by CEO, Melissa Williams alongside her astonishing team.

She truly enjoys bringing her clients vision to reality and creating an experience for not only their clients, but their guests as well, which will last a lifetime. One of Melissa’s favorite moments during wedding events, is when the couple chooses to do a ‘reception reveal’ and seeing the glow and outright appreciation of their client’s dreams becoming reality.
here are a few fun facts about MELISSA:

Melissa and her team were a God-send for sure!
No matter how busy she was, Melissa always responded to messages very, very promptly. I am going to miss working with Melissa and the team over at B Astonished. We can not wait for the next big exciting event (that is how great this experience was).
