Melodi did an outstanding job of making sure that every detail of our wedding day was executed flawlessly.Sent on 07/31/2019
Being that I am someone that is late for nearly everything, I was really impressed with how well the timelines were coordinated and how well everyone was able to adhere to them, especially me, the Bride. Melodi made sure everything/everyone was in their proper places at precisely the correct moments.
Being a DIY Bride and using our family farm as our venue, left us with a great potential for disaster. However, instead of being concerned with the impending threat of Murphy’s Law or reaching a perfectionists level of FOMO, I was instead, able to focus on getting ready for my Groom.
Because of Melodi we were able to relax, knowing that everything was being taken care of. Not a single thread out of place, every detail perfectly on point and placed exactly just so... As if I’d been right there, pointing fingers and placing things the way I wanted them to be placed, except even better!
Our wedding day was more beautiful and fun than I could have ever hoped for. We cannot thank Melodi enough for the ease and magic she brought to our perfect day. We will definitely be recommending her services to everyone and anyone that is planning an event.
1,000 Stories deserves 1,000 ⭐️ review.

Melodi made our wedding (almost) stress free!
Melodi was wonderful and extremely accommodating. She contacted all our vendors, gave amazing daily schedules to parents, groomsmen and others, and was positive and extremely helpful during the actual wedding.Sent on 07/22/2019

Melodi was STELLAR!!!
What else can I say? Melodi was integral to the success of our wedding this past weekend. We hired her to be our day-of coordinator, but she went above and beyond by offering assistance with planning and logistics throughout the month leading up to the event.Sent on 07/17/2019
Melodi was patient, respectful, and most importantly, helped to ease our nerves while uncountable little details swarmed about us in the days before the wedding. She never put any undue pressure or expectations on us, and worked incredibly hard to ensure that our vision was brought to life.
Finally, she was attentive to our needs the whole way through, and took extra care to make us feel comfortable. I'll say it again and again, Melodi played a critical role in the planning and execution of our special day and we could not be more fortunate than to have had her on our team along the way.

Melodi is a dream to work with. She planned and ran a major photo shoot at our venue. At our first meeting she was organized, ready with ideas, took initiative and made the shoot better than I ever imagined it could be. The time she took to book vendors, style the shoot, go to fittings etc was way more than I expected. She absolutely amazed me. I reccomend her to all my clients and I know you will be blown away with her planning skills.
I highly recommend Melodi at 1000 Stories Event Planning. She is what is known in our industry as a Driver, which means the following things: 1) She is focused and dedicated to execute YOUR vision, not what anyone else thinks the day should look like. 2) She is dynamic and has an active personality type that gets along with everyone in the room. 3) Melodi is also a visionary that is great at seeing the big picture. Unlike most drivers, she has a good eye for the details and knows the steps to take to make the big picture happen according to plan. 4) She is adaptable to changing situations and moves fast when an adjustment is quickly needed. This means that she is realistic that sometimes things happen outside of the vision and has the experience to make quick fixes if something were to stray from the plan. 5) Every event needs a self-aware person in the planning mix because they are the ones that are problem-solvers, not only for themselves, but the entire team. Melodi is this problem-solver! I strongly feel that every wedding NEEDS, at the very least, a Day-Of-Coordinator and I can think of no one better than Melodi. I have worked with her professionally for nearly 10 years and she really shines in this arena. Do yourself a favor and have a consultation with her because I can guarantee that she is not looking to execute her vision, it is all about making YOUR vision come to life.
