Some of Our Favorites

Edward & Ted

We highly recommend Details and Lace and enjoyed working with Melanie Scott through the entire wedding planning process. During our initial meeting over drinks Melanie listened as our vague ideas took shape. She was able to fill in the gaps and really helped us envision our day. We are two grooms and Melanie had excellent suggestions on how our ceremony and reception should unfold. Her knowledge of the area and the venues, as well as her relationships with vendors took the stress out of much of the decision making. Her instincts on what we wanted were exactly right.
On the day of our wedding Melanie was calm, cool, and collected. Her attention to the smallest detail made everything flow, even down to the last minute decision to have the ceremony outside as planned or inside due to rain. The clouds parted and everything was truly perfect. Thank you Melanie and the Details and Lace team.

John, Father of the Bride

Sincerely cannot share enough praise for Melanie Scott and her team! My daughter's wedding essentially took place in the midst of tropical storm Ophelia and Melanie was a consistent source of calm, expertise, and care! Even under some of the most trying circumstances, she never lost sight of the priorities for the bride and groom and went above and beyond to ensure an exceptional and memorable experience! Her local relationships allowed for last minute changes and her positive attitude help keep everyone focused on making sure the day was as fantastic as it could possibly be! My recommendation of Details & Lace is the highest I could possibly provide! Five Stars all the way!

Five Stars all the way!

Renee, Mother of the bride

"Every part of our daughter's ceremony and reception was flawless.
We could not have done it without Melanie's calmness, help and wisdom. The vendors she suggested knocked it out of the park and the Details and Lace team was a delight to work with. Our guests continue to rave about how spectacular the wedding was. 
My husband says you are the Switzerland of negotiating mother-daughter relations."
