You won't regret hiring Mel!
Not Just a Coordinator
Last May we met with Mel and I knew right away she was the wedding planner for me; her calm demeanor, knowledge of vendors in the area, sense of humor and responsiveness stood out right away. After we met we immediately got to planning! Mel and Shameka were amazing from start to finish. Mel saw my vision and made it come to life, she recommended all of the vendors we used and they were all nothing short of perfect!
Mel and Shameka were very responsive throughout the year of planning; whether it was emails back and forth, Zoom calls, or setting up meetings with vendors.
On the day of Mel and Shameka got right to work setting up everything (tables, chairs, decorations, etc.) it was hard to imagine how all of the different pieces would come together, but as soon as I saw everything it was as if the picture I had in my head came to life.
Our day was perfect and I have Special Days Weddings and Events to thank for it. My husband and I both say it was the best day of our lives.
