Hiring Melanie was the best decision that I made in the whole wedding process second only to picking the groom. She was amazing and coordinated between all the vendors on the day. She made sure that I thought of everything that might be needed an executed the vision that I had seamlessly. Every vendor that she recommended was perfect and she made sure that everyone from the wedding party to my grandmother was where they needed to be on the day. She even vetted the Best Man speech which he finished writing the morning of. She is basically the Wonder Woman of weddings. if you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with her do not hesitate! She will make your day perfect.

I honestly don't know where to begin! Mel was EASILY the most important aspect of our wedding. I cannot imagine having planned our day without her. Firstly, she has so many amazing contacts in this industry. She recommended a killer band that our guests could not stop talking about. The live band made all the difference in the feel of the reception. She recommended our florist, who made me the most beautiful arrangements that I could ever imagine. She also recommended a rental company for extra things that made the reception perfect, like spot lights, linens, etc. The end result took our breath away.

Mel is an amazing planner. She has SO much experience, and that really helped us when we weren't sure about certain decisions. I felt like she guided us the whole way. She spent a lot of time just trying to get to know us so that she could understand our personalities and understand our vision for the wedding. She totally "got" us - her recommendations were always spot on!

Her responsiveness is also amazing. She always got back to me within a day. She was absolutely the most reliable part of our planning. No matter if it was a call, email, text, or smoke signal, I would hear back from her ASAP. She (somehow) remembered everything I told her. On the big day, I even saw some details and thought to myself, "oh yeah, I forgot I asked Mel to do that!!"

But the most important thing Mel did for us was give us peace of mind. She came to my house a week before the wedding and picked up all the "stuff" I had been harboring for the wedding. She took it ALL and kept it safe until the big day. It was an incredible relief to be able to enjoy the week approaching the wedding and just get excited. When we got to the reception space, I couldn't believe how it all came together. It's not just about saving us the work, it's about the peace of mind. She is not only a professional, caring wedding planner, but she is also one of the nicest humans I know!

And of course she is wonderful to work with in planning details at the restaurant. Not only is she organized, but she also has the experience to ask all the right questions in order to provide your perfect wedding.
