We cannot express how ecstatic we were with Mel and her team at Special Days. My mom met Mel at a bridal expo and as soon as she reached out to us, we knew she was the one. Planning a wedding in North Carolina while living in California is not an easy task and we really had to find a person we could trust to execute our ideal wedding.
We let Mel know what our vision was and she went to work. We wanted a wedding at the beach in a house that we could also stay in for the week of the wedding. Mel found us the most perfect house, the Memory Maker in Ocean Isle Beach. We wanted a low country boil. Mel found us a delicious caterer, Costal Catering. We wanted specific flower arrangements. Mel found the right florist, Calabash florist, and built a beautiful arbor for us to get married under on the beach. We wanted perfect weather. Mel made sure that the weather was perfect and the moon was full :-) !!!!!!
You get the picture and speaking of pictures, Darlene, at Timeless Memories was also a dream to work with. We could not have done this without Mel. She works with a great team and they were on top of everything making sure we had no worries on our big day. She dealt with the typical wedding guest drama with ease. Very professional and organized. Can't recommend her enough!

We cannot express how awesome our experience was with Mel. We only booked a day of coordination and she went so far above and beyond. From day one she was there walking us through everything (recommending vendors, answering questions, helping with big and small details) right up to making sure our big day went smooth. We had a simple nautical/relaxed beach style wedding as our vision and she absolutely made it come to life. Thank you for everything Mel! We highly recommend!

Good person to have on your team!
Mel O'Daniels was a wonderful wedding planner. She is attentive and structured. She has a lot of experience and helped us pull off an amazing weekend wedding even though Hurricane Florence blew through town just 4 days prior. Mel is not afraid to think "outside the box".
