Amazing! Such a professional!

Yvonne is a true professional and a delight to work with. I recommend her services completely. From the moment my fiancé and I partnered with Yvonne, we knew we were in good hands. She always one step ahead of us in planning, was forever organized for our calls, and made us feel supported throughout the process. Yvonne has organized hundreds of events--and this expertise and experience shows. I am so grateful for all that Yvonne did to make our wedding possible. Thank you!

Yvonne is the best!!!!

Yvonne and her team are the best out there! We had Yvonne as our month of planner for our October 2023 wedding and it made our wedding day seamless. She attended planning meetings with us and knew all the right questions to ask. She also helped me figure out our centerpieces which took a huge amount of stress off of me as the bride. When we entered the venue our vision had come to life. With very little direction, she knows exactly how to make your day, YOUR day. Highly recommend 10/10.

Highly recommend!

We cannot recommend Unique Melody enough!! I really wanted to enjoy our day and was also a little nervous about passing off all my months of planning, but the second I met Steph I knew we were in good hands (Yvonne ran our rehearsal and Steph ran our event). Not only was having a coordinator on the day absolutely invaluable, but it was tremendously nice in the weeks before our wedding to know we had minimal work left to do because UME was on everything. We think spending money on a day-of coordinator was the best money we spent on our wedding because it allowed us to focus fully on all the other things we spent money on: we ate all the food, danced to all the music, and really got to live in the moment. Months away from our wedding, we are still basking in the glow, in large part because of all the hard work UME did on our behalf.

Hi! I'm Yvonne, Melody was my mother and where all my creative really came from, so hence the name! I began my career in events while I was finishing my degree in Sports, Entertainment and Event Management at Johnson & Wals University. I gained knowledge, experience and a full 360 view of Events as a Banquet Manager, Food and beverage Driector and Sales manager of a Boutique Hotel. I found myself working with clients more on styling, planning and design, which lead me to launching UME in 2015. I enjoy all events but have a passion for planning and designing an estate wedding or wedding in the middle of nowhere!
