About Kindred Spirit Elopements and Intimate Weddings

Kindred Spirit Elopements and Intimate Weddings, based in Wilmington, North Carolina, is a well-known wedding planning company. Recently we transitioned to Elopements and Intimate Weddings.

is your Kindred Spirit TEAM

We bring a skill set reflecting our ability to understand and interpret our client's vision, create and execute a design with great attention to detail.

Highly creative with innovative ideas, Melanie is a superb organizer. Her experience as a Navy nurse working in emergent and urgent care settings has given her the ability to inspire others and meet your needs head on.

Services Offered

Kindred Spirit offers Elopement and Intimate Wedding packages. Eloping (less than 6 people) has become a very popular trend bringing the romance of a lifetime back to weddings. Think about it? Do you want to pay $35,000 as a down payment on your home or for the party at your wedding?

COST is a huge factor. Many of our couples are paying for their own wedding and cannot afford a grand production. Elopements have a greater focus on couples rather than trying to please scores of guests and can include a small intimate dinner; without the formal reception. This is a unique departure from the typical wedding style, ensuring your BIG DAY is all about the love you share with your partner!

All packages include officiant, photographer, cake, bridal bouquet -all white or seasonal, groom boutonniere

You can add a brunch or dinner for 20-25 people or less.

Wilmington NC beaches are ideal for just the two of you, or bring along your close friends and family.

    Kindred Spirit Event Planning was the best investment we made for our daughter's 250+ guest wedding! Melanie and Joel and their team provided the perfect support we needed for such an important day, making it an epic and beautiful wedding!

    From the very beginning, Kindred Spirit thought of and guided us through every single detail required to make such a large event a fun and flawless wedding for the bride and groom, our families and friends. Melanie and Joel mastered the balance of getting to know each of us and our wishes, style, and budget with providing the best suggestions for every single vendor -- all of which she has vetted and know so well that we had the easy job of saying 'yes' to her recommendations. And every one of our vendors (venues, caterers, photographers, videographers, dj, florist, decor, furniture, lighting, hair and make up, transportation, hotels and accommodations, etc.) were superb!

    Kindred Spirit came to us through a friend who highly recommended them and we are pleased to do the same -- hiring Kindred Spirit Event Planning to help plan your event (at any level!) is the best choice you can make.

    If you are wondering whether or not to invest in a wedding planner, stop wondering and do it. If you are wondering whom to hire, look no further. It will be the best money you spend in the creation of your wedding. Melanie and Joel were indispensable to us from day one of planning to the days following the wedding (submitting our marriage license and returning decor and keepsakes). They enhanced the entire experience and made the planning part so much fun that we almost wished our wedding date was a few months later because we enjoyed the process so much.

    Melanie and Joel are exceedingly organized, and have incredible forethought to think of the little things that would never have crossed your mind. For example, something as small as transporting the bridesmaids things from salon to ceremony to reception. They have a solution for everything, and their energy and excitement is contagious. They were flexible with meeting up for multiple planning sessions and took the time to write an "after action report' for every meeting, capturing the key topics of discussion and remaining action items.

    Our wedding had 250 guests, and the ceremony and reception locations were different. Needless to say there were a lot of moving parts, but leading up to the wedding I had NO nerves and no concerns. My wedding was in the hands of Melanie and Joel and I had the utmost confidence in them to pull it off. They did and it was incredible. Make your wedding the best it can be with Kindred Spirits Event Planning. Melanie and Joel are unmatchable.

    Melanie and Joel! What can I say about these two wonderful people? I had the opportunity to work with these two last summer at a wedding at the Blockade Runner, and the party they put on was nothing short of spectacular. Everything went off without a hitch, and Melanie was even there the entire day with a fractured leg! She's like superwoman...I'm telling you.
