We hired Mel to be our day of coordinator. Mel met with us at the ceremony site about 6 months before the wedding and the week of the wedding. She was great about staying in contact with any questions, and she even recommended vendors for us, like our violinist who we also loved. Mel did just a wonderful job the day of the wedding, going above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. She is 100% worth what you spend, my family and friends could not stop talking about the wonderful job she did. Thank you so much Mel, we highly recommend!

Wow! Mel was absolutely a dream to work with. As the mother-of-the bride, I wanted to hire a wedding planner so that I would be able to relax and enjoy the event without worrying about the details. Everything went beautifully, and it was such a comfort knowing that if anything went wrong, Mel was going to be there to take care of it. Mel quickly picked up on my daughter's vision for her wedding and contributed great ideas and guidance without stepping on my daughter's toes. She worked super hard to make my daughter's dream a reality. In addition, the vendors she recommended were top notch.
