"It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our fearless founder and leader, Melissa Corbin Williams. Melissa passed after a long, brave and private battle with cancer. She founded A Charleston Bride in 2001 and was one of the original leaders in the wedding planning industry here in the Lowcountry. In her 21 year career, she carved the path and set the standard for excellence for many others in our line of work. Numerous event professionals credit Melissa and A Charleston Bride for giving them their first opportunity in the industry. There are truly no words to adequately describe the determination and strength that she emitted in all aspects of her life. She was so many things to so many people and each one of them more impressive than the last. She was a leader, a mentor and a friend along with the most loving wife, mother, daughter and sister. She poured 110% of herself into her career, her family and her friends. To know her, was to adore her. Her smile and laugh were infectious and she brought the most powerful energy with her into every room. Her life was far too short but it was so incredibly full. From clients and vendors that turned into lifelong friends, to the team members past and present that attribute their successes from her impact, she left a lasting imprint on everyone around her. She demanded nothing but excellence in the best way and had the most fierce ability to bring others together, build strong relationships and make you want to be the best version of yourself. Her loss is immeasurable but, looking ahead, we are honored to carry on the legacy that she built. Her streamlined techniques and systematic approach to planning are the fundamentals that our team follows today and will continue to follow in years to come. She will forever be celebrated by us as the life of every party that we produce. She fought hard, loved hard and worked hard every single day and we will continue to do the same in her name. If you would like to make a donation in her memory, please consider the Melissa Corbin Williams Scholarship Fund that is being finalized with the College of Charleston and will be made public soon. -Love, Amanda, Chloe + Jess"
