Keswick Wedding

"One of the best parts of working with Melanie, beyond her kind and upbeat personality, is that she is incredibly organized and thorough... She coordinated with our other vendors, kept everything on schedule and setup everything perfectly using her expertise to add decor touches that I loved. My family and I were able to enjoy every moment and I didn't need to assign tasks or have anyone running around doing a single thing. I'm not sure how she does it, but the second we would need anything (or not even realize we needed something), she was right there with it. 

Incredibly organized and thorough...

"Melanie and her team made my wedding day go seamless while also feeling like they were a part of the family! So personable and so easy to work with. I would recommend her to any bride-to-be. Some of my bridesmaids even said once they get engaged, they are calling Melanie! If you hire Details and Lace for your wedding day, rest assured that you will be taken care of :)"

Amazing to work with!

"Fantastic wedding planner - No need to look elsewhere
We found Melanie Scott (Details and Lace) through Wedding Wire for my daughter's wedding. We live out of town so needed help finding vendors and venues. We started with Melanie and was not disappointed. She helped us pull together an A team of vendors. She is very responsive, sweet and fun. We couldn't have had the most amazing wedding without Melanie and Michaela. Definite 5 star team!!"

No Need to Look Elsewhere


We look forward to speaking with you soon.
