MAP Events


Our philosophy is to stay calm and have a sense of humor!  We enjoy building an amazing team of vendors to bring your vision to fruition.  Of course, there is the business of budgets, contract, timeline, and check-lists, but the end goal is to bring family and friends together to celebrate and enjoy good food, cocktails, and music….all in a elegant setting.

Melissa Panico started MAP Events in 2001, after several years in catering sales in San Francisco.  With an established reputation and strong organization skills, the MAP Events team has grown through word of mouth referrals and produces weddings from Carmel to Tahoe.

We enjoy the design and creative aspect of the planning a wedding.  You won’t find us often in a hotel ballroom.  We like backyards, ranches, barns, pool-side, lake-side, wineries, and meadows.  Brides come to us with great ideas.  Whether it’s a Pig Roast, Surf board bars, or Fireworks, we will make it a reality.
