    Five stars!!

    Melanie and Katie were SO amazing through every step of planning- they were so helpful and responsive with any task I had on my plate. Not to mention, great people- so friendly and able to put a very stressed bride at ease!

    The best hire I could have made!

    Mel, without any exaggeration SAVED my wedding day. I was stuck between a rock and hard place when my original day of coordinator did not follow through, Mel was referred to me and she played a huge role in maintaining my sanity throughout the whole process. She is efficient, extremely professional and the most important to me, was personable. She understood what I needed, gave me much needed advice and kept her cool with whatever was thrown her way. If you want superwoman in your corner then she is your girl!

    Truly the best! Cannot recommend them enough!

    I cannot recommend Mel & Katie enough, they were absolutely the best!! Leading up to our big day (9.10.22), we met with them twice - we walked through our floorplan and they truly listened to all my ideas and what I felt was important to me, they offered ideas and solutions to any problems I had, and made sure we had all our bases covered. A month out from our wedding, Mel & Katie took over all communication with our vendors and handled all the coordinating of drop off/pick up times and making sure that they'd have everything they needed when they got to the house. Having them there to handle all this was a huge weight lifted off me leading up to the wedding!! The day of the wedding Mel & Katie were amazing, they showed up first thing and got right to work! I definitely had a specific vision in mind of how I wanted everything to look and they surpassed it! Everything turned out beautifully. They went above and beyond to make sure every detail was perfect, and it truly was! Following the ceremony, Mel & Katie moved all our decorations from the ceremony area to the reception area including the ceremony floral arrangements! I actually didn't remember to ask them to do this, but they just did & it was awesome because we really got to appreciate all the decor throughout the night! They truly made sure every detail was perfect all throughout the night. They kept things moving according to our timeline, but were never pushy in moving things along! The next day when it came time to clean up, most of the chairs and rentals that could be cleaned up, had already been done by Mel and Katie the night before! Because of them, my husband and I, and our families were able to enjoy the day/night and most importantly have fun! Thank you Mel & Katie!!

Celebration Specialist

"Since earning my degree in Visual Communication, I have spent years planning and producing every kind of event out there, from holidays and occasions to weddings and corporate events. I strongly believe we should celebrate every day!"

Melanie is 45 years old, a firefighter’s wife, and mother to their 3 grown children, Katie, Sean and Ryan. Best of all, she is mimi to Katie’s daughter, Payton. For too many years to count, she spent much of her time volunteering for the kids’ schools and working at her county’s Office of Education. As much as she enjoyed all of that, she is happy those years are behind her. More recently, she has spent her time creating and designing party printables for her blog and shop. She also helps look after Payton, of course.

Celebration Specialist

"I’m a no-nonsense millennial wife and mother, and I’m all about YOUR event vibes and vision. This girl gets it done! I always aim to please, and I love all the different ways in which we celebrate."

Katie is a 24-year-old wife and mother to the most precious human being in the entire world, according to Mimi. Until going full-time with event planning, she worked part-time as a veterinary receptionist. She and her husband, Tyler, who works for our local irrigation district, were married October 2019, thankfully before anyone had even heard of this pandemic. Little Payton was born in March of that year and got to be the surprise guest at their wedding! Even with the slight interruption and unexpected addition to their little family, they did enjoy a long engagement. Mimi likes to point out that ‘Payton came at exactly the right time; we just didn’t know why they wanted such a long engagement!’ Nonetheless, it all worked out beautifully and their friends and family were tickled to have Payton in attendance on such a special day.
