Working with Melanie made our wedding planning experience and the celebration the day of even more special! She is kind-hearted, supportive, detail-oriented, friendly, and she absolutely genuinely loves her job and the couples and families she works with-- that is SO evident!! Melanie made sure our day ran smoothly from start to finish, and that my family members and I had plenty of help/time with her prior to the wedding to ask questions (from the time we hied her 4-5 mo. in advance all the way to the day of) and hash out details. She had great insight and organization/planning skills, but also was sure to focus on making the day exactly what my husband and I wanted it to be and helping our vision become a reality! I also loved having access to the Aisle Planner software through her. I think that you get much more than what you pay for if you choose to work with Melanie. She is now like a family friend more than just someone we hired to provide us a service, and for that we are so grateful. :) Thank you, Melanie, for absolutely everything!!! We love you!!

Melanie was a true life-saver throughout our wedding planning process and the wedding weekend. Melanie is funny, easy-going, genuine and a pleasure to work with, while also being able to make sure things get done, things keep moving, and everybody stays on the ball. …Hire Melanie and you won't have to worry---everything will be perfect! I mean it wholeheartedly when I say that hiring her was the single best wedding planning decision I made. She streamlined everything, she was incredibly focused on detail and organization, and she made sure the weekend happened as seamlessly as possible so we could focus on the fun. Even if you're detail-oriented and adept at multi-tasking, you will not regret enlisting Melanie's help because her experience, demeanor, professionalism, and ability to anticipate every possible scenario and how to fix it is truly invaluable when the big day actually arises. Obviously wedding planning is about balancing costs and expectations and desires, but truly the best money that we spent on our wedding was hiring Melanie (and my now-husband, his family, our bridal party, and my parents wholeheartedly agree)

Melanie was the best decision we made! I was planning my wedding from afar but she was always willing to talk on the phone and kept meticulous notes about all the details discussed. She maintained the perfect ratio of stern and sweet throughout the entire day. From getting to the venue extra early to make sure things were on schedule to shoving a cheese cube and water in my face during photos, Melanie was absolutely perfect. I absolutely could not have done it without her and cannot express how wonderful she is. She worked far beyond … and was exceedingly professional throughout the entire process. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
