Some of Our Favorites

Emily Jennewine, bride

"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. 

Jill Stephens , bride

"Melanie made sure everything ran smoothly on our wedding day and that we felt prepared and supported in the months leading up to it. She has a calm, professional demeanor that is invaluable for big events. She gave us lots of great tips and advice on timing and logistics that we might not have known to consider. We had a great experience with Melanie and highly recommend her!"

sandi Mrochinski, Mother of the bride

"Melanie was so helpful in many ways prior to the wedding day from phone calls, emails, meeting with us and great advice. She listens to what is important to you, and was there each time I was concerned about something or had a question. As a Mother of the Bride that was such a relief having her by my daughter's side. I highly recommend this organized, energetic, happy lady for any of your wedding event planning."
