So much effort, seemingly effortless

Melissa Blackheart and her partner Brian are TOP NOTCH! I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my special day! I hired them as my day-of coordinators and everything was absolutely perfect! Melissa herded us to our obligations with an amazing attitude and a smile on her face! It was such a long day for them setting up everything, chasing us around (and we were ALL OVER THE PLACE - sorry Melissa), cleaning up at the end of the night and they were amazing the entire time. I can't say enough good things about them, really.

Hello, Lovebirds!

My name is Melissa Blackheart. I launched Feather and Lace with the dream of being the go-to wedding and event planner for all of the nontraditional.

I decided to follow this dream after I saw the challenges of planning my own wedding, while not fitting into the box that is the wedding industry.

I strive to be an ally in creating all of your alternative event planning needs. Goths, LGBTQIA+, Bikers, Punks, Nerds, Metalheads, Rockabillies, and more. I am here for you.

I have a firm belief that conforming to tradition isn't for everyone. Let us plan your dream event that will stand out from the basic. Let us plan your dream event that is unapologetically you.
