Melanie Bressler

Campus Manager

Hello! I work with all our couples at Steeple Square to coordinate the details of their wedding and I am also onsite the day of their wedding to ensure everything runs smoothly. What I enjoy most about my line of work is that I get to see couples on their happiest day of their lives and know that I helped execute their plans. I have more than 5 years of professional event planning experience, but I've been event planning my whole life! I hope you say "I do" to Steeple Square, because I'd be honored to work with you!
