Julie M., bride
Mt. Ida, Waters Edge Wedding

"It is no exaggeration when I say hiring Details and Lace  was the best decision I made during my whole wedding process. 
Melanie quickly became someone I trusted and could turn to to navigate the world of wedding vendors. Her contacts and network are a true reflection of the level of care she provides to both sides of the industry. Vendors love working with her and as a result vendors perform their absolute best. Her knowledge in this industry is unmatched and she is constantly applying lessons learned with each wedding she manages."

It is no exaggeration ...

Anna S. bride
Boar's Head Resort

"Melanie and her team are absolutely wonderful! I can not recommend her enough as a wedding planner. She is kind, thoughtful, and incredibly perceptive. She is so knowledgeable and truly puts her client first. She spent the time and energy to understand what everyone wanted for the big day and made sure it happened. I really just can't say enough good things about working with her. She goes above and beyond."

Goes above and Beyond!

Renee R., Mother of the bride
King Family Vineyards

"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."
