Xoxo mel = the best

We LOVE Mel! From our first call, Mel just got it - so genuinely fun, positive, and clearly a master of her craft. She answered all the questions we had and, even more importantly, the ones we didn’t even know we needed to ask. She was always available when we needed her and gave us endless advice and recommendations! Through a very involved and inherently stressful process, we left every meeting with her feeling reassured and confident we were heading in the right direction. She is sharp as a tack, proactive, has contingencies for every contingency, and is at the same time a caring friend and a true professional. She is dependable and an absolute pleasure of a person to be around.
On the day of the wedding, we felt so at ease that everything was handled from set up to clean up. We really just got to enjoy our wedding day as bride and groom - totally stress free and made our vision a beautiful reality!!
We cannot recommend Mel and XOXO enough!!

Took so much pressure off!

Working with XOXO Weddings and our planner, Kelly, in particular took so much pressure off of planning our wedding. I kept being told that the stress of wedding planning would come, but with Kelly it never did! She was so responsive and incredibly helpful when it came to finding and selecting vendors, designing our vision board/theme, and providing guidance on any random thing that came to mind. I would highly recommend her and XOXO to anyone looking to make their special day a little less stressful!

10 out of 10!

My husband and I had the BEST experience working with Mel from XOXO weddings! She truly went above and beyond, and gave incredible recommendations on everything we needed advice on (schedule/timeline, vendors, etc.). She is incredibly organized, knowledgeable, and easy to work with - you could tell how thoughtful she was in her recommendations and how much effort she puts into making sure everything goes flawlessly. On the day of our wedding, Mel did an incredible job making sure everything went to plan (which must have been exceptionally difficult with a guest count greater than 200). She created the most stress-free day for my husband and I; we were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that Mel and her assistants were taking care of every detail and making sure we kept to the timeline. I can't recommend XOXO weddings highly enough!

Team

Kaci Mallat Johnson
Kaci Mallat Johnson
Owner/Lead Coordinator

Kaci's wedding career started with having a quarter life crisis, and she wanted to do something similar to producing variety dance performances. She was a Dance major with a business minor in college, and coordinating a wedding is VERY much like producing a show!!! Kaci started by interning with a wedding coordination company in Los Angeles, and after her internship, she was hired as a lead coordinator. The rest is history.

Kaci wants her ideal client to know that she 100% has their best interests at heart. Whether its a budget issue to a timing concern, her advice will be given from experience and her ability to look at the big picture.

Kelly Pruner
Kelly Pruner
Lead Coordinator

Kelly's amazing friend Kaci started working as a wedding planner and coordinated her wedding. Kaci thought Kelly would be a good fit when she started her own business and Kelly is still here with the company!

Kelly loves the love. All the people that the couple knows in the same room to celebrate their love for each other. It is a special and magical thing that will never happen again (hopefully) in their lives. She also believes that the most important thing is that they get married. Everything else is fluff.

Melissa Lovell
Melissa Lovell
Lead Coordinator

Mel has been organizing and planning parties since she moved to California in 2012, but it wasn't until planning her own wedding in 2016 that she fell in LOVE with all things Weddings! She has always been excited about organizing and event planning, and since joining XOXO in 2016 Mel has fallen in love with helping couples share their love and putting on their perfect wedding day!

Mel values the way her couples feel. Both in the planning journey and on the actual wedding day! She wants her Brides and Grooms to feel comfortable and excited! Her attention to detail absolutely sets her apart! The detail in your vision, the detail in how you and your partner want to feel, the detail in the moments you want to create, and, of course, the detail of how everything comes together and runs smoothly on the wedding day!

We have worked with XOXO weddings for several years and they are simply one of the best wedding planning companies in Los Angeles! We work mainly with Kaci and Tanya and both are extremely organized, communicative and care deeply about their clients. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator who will not only get the job done perfectly, but help you enjoy the entire planning process!
