Amazing Wedding Coordinator!
Melodi with 1000 Stories Event Planning is absolutely amazing. I was originally planning to manage my own wedding, but 40 days before the big day, it was clear that I needed help or I wasn't going to be able to be in the moment! My now-husband and I hired Melodi. She was on the ball right at 30 days, making sure we met, discussed all components of the wedding, and got started confirming vendors. She talked about things I hadn't even thought of or planned for. The real magic was the day of the wedding- she made sure everything ran seamlessly- coordinating vendors behind the scenes. She would check on me often, and slow me down/have me take a deep breath. I felt genuinely cared for. She even plated food for me and kept my and my husband's drink full all night. The day ran so smoothly, and it was the best party of our lives. I can't say enough good things about Melodi as a human being and as a wedding coordinator!Sent on 02/20/2020
1000 Stories Events's reply:Mrs. Russell, your review made me cry. I so loved working for you and Mr. Russell. Your party was so memorable for all your guests and you planned the best send off ever!

Fantastic day-of planner!
Melodi did a fantastic job for us on our big day - she was everywhere, and we got a few compliments about her from our guests.Sent on 01/18/2020

The Perfect Cape Kiwanda Elopement
Where do I even start?! Melodi was the FIRST wedding planner to respond to me. I am a Florida bride who decided to cancel my 165+ guest list wedding here in FL and elope in OREGON. Never have I been there so I knew I needed a planner to help me, not only did she help me pick a destination Melodi was more than helpful with everything. She went above and beyond, she went to the ceremony site a week before the wedding, (2 hour drive for her) just so she could check it out, take photos, see how busy the area was, see what time the sun started to set, see how far it was from our getting ready location, ect. I did not ask her to do this, she took it upon herself to do it and make she she would know how every detail of the day would play out. She even drove to the airport and met me at baggage claim to welcome us to Oregon. Without her, my planning would have been chaotic. I did talk to a few others in the beginning and not one gave me the warm welcome like Melodi. She loves her job, she takes pride in what she does, and most importantly she felt like someone I had known forever. She is simply the BEST. Thank you Melodi for EVERYTHING! - Kailey & BrentSent on 09/26/2019
1000 Stories Events's reply:Wow! Thank you so much Kailey! I do love my job and elopements and destination weddings are especially fun because I want my couples to LOVE their Oregon experience. I'm so glad you did! The Oregon coast is really special and I worked really hard to clear away the rain for you that afternoon too :))

Melodi made my wedding day a breeze!
Melodi is a wonderful wedding planner. My husband and I purchased her “Day of Coordination” package for our wedding and I’m so happy we decided to bend our wedding budget to do so. I was so impressed with Melodi’s willingness to help (even if it meant going the extra mile) , thoughtfulness, organizational skills, and knowledge. One of my favorite things about Melodi’s service is that she made personalized timelines for everyone involved in the wedding. I would recommend Melodi/having a wedding coordinator to anyone because it honestly made everything go so smoothly. Lastly, one of my guests had a wardrobe malfunction (her dress ripped) and Melodi saved her day! Just another example of how awesome she is. :) Choose Melodi for your wedding!Sent on 09/28/2019
1000 Stories Events's reply:Mrs. Karlsen, thank you for your review. I was happy to help keep your plans on track and assist your guests in need. Your wedding was beautiful and memorable and I wish you and Lane the best in everything!

Melodi did an outstanding job of making sure that every detail of our wedding day was executed flawlessly.
Being that I am someone that is late for nearly everything, I was really impressed with how well the timelines were coordinated and how well everyone was able to adhere to them, especially me, the Bride. Melodi made sure everything/everyone was in their proper places at precisely the correct moments.
Being a DIY Bride and using our family farm as our venue, left us with a great potential for disaster. However, instead of being concerned with the impending threat of Murphy’s Law or reaching a perfectionists level of FOMO, I was instead, able to focus on getting ready for my Groom.
Because of Melodi we were able to relax, knowing that everything was being taken care of. Not a single thread out of place, every detail perfectly on point and placed exactly just so... As if I’d been right there, pointing fingers and placing things the way I wanted them to be placed, except even better!
Our wedding day was more beautiful and fun than I could have ever hoped for. We cannot thank Melodi enough for the ease and magic she brought to our perfect day. We will definitely be recommending her services to everyone and anyone that is planning an event.

Melodi made our wedding (almost) stress free!

Melodi was STELLAR!!!
What else can I say? Melodi was integral to the success of our wedding this past weekend. We hired her to be our day-of coordinator, but she went above and beyond by offering assistance with planning and logistics throughout the month leading up to the event.Sent on 07/17/2019
Melodi was patient, respectful, and most importantly, helped to ease our nerves while uncountable little details swarmed about us in the days before the wedding. She never put any undue pressure or expectations on us, and worked incredibly hard to ensure that our vision was brought to life.
Finally, she was attentive to our needs the whole way through, and took extra care to make us feel comfortable. I'll say it again and again, Melodi played a critical role in the planning and execution of our special day and we could not be more fortunate than to have had her on our team along the way.
1000 Stories Events's reply:Nauvin, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review. How could I NOT go above and beyond for you and Emily?!?! You worked so hard on creating a very unique wedding from the rehearsal night to the ceremony through the reception and I wanted to make sure you enjoyed every special moment!

A successful wedding due to our day-of coordinator!
I can't state emphatically enough how important it is to have a day-of manager for your wedding. There are so many details to keep track of and all of them need to occur on your carefully planned schedule. If, like us, this is your first time being involved in putting on a wedding, you will also greatly benefit from the advice and wisdom of an experienced event planner. With such a big event it can feel like a mad dash to the finish line and having Melodi there with us really eased the anxiety of getting everything pulled together on time. We were able to ask a zillion questions and take numerous tasks off our plate for her to handle. Deciding to have Melodi as our day-of coordinator was one of the best decisions we made in this process. My next child to get married will probably have a full-service planner for the whole event, so wonderful was it to have the guidance and help. I highly recommend 1000 Stories!Sent on 07/18/2019
1000 Stories Events's reply:Meagan, Thank you SO much for the kind words! It's hard to understand the scope of a wedding until you've been through it, right? I hope other MOG's, MOB's and engaged couples take your advice. And, when your next child is planning their wedding, no matter where it is, I hope you'll think of me. Thank you for being a really great client!

Melodi was an amazing event planner. The event was my companies 20th Anniversary party and it had to be perfect. Melodi pulled the whole thing off with ease. She involved me when I needed to be, and the event was on auto-pilot for the most part. She took care of everything. She makes the complex look like the mundane.
Thank you Melodi for taking such good care of me and my Staff. I look forward to our Open House Event next year, and you will definitely be my planner for that.

Really incredible service! Melodi was great and easy to work with, and I can't believe how much value we got for the price! I was feeling very overwhelmed with the whole process, but she made it easy and was very kind when I was overwhelmed and didn't get back to her right away. She was very accommodating with our choice of date, and didn't mind our hectic timeline. The venue was perfect, and everyone has commented on what a fun event it was! Would definitely recommend!Sent on 09/06/2018

I love that yours was so personalized to your personalities. It was a perfect day! All my best to you and the Mr.!
Meika · Married on 07/28/2018
We used Melodi’s Day of Coordinating package for our wedding which included her assistance 30 days prior to the wedding. Melodi was very thorough in planning and was able to keep me organized and on track! We had a few things go awry with other vendors on the wedding day which she handled like the Pro she is! My only regret is that we didn’t have her plan the whole wedding, it would have been worth every penny!Sent on 08/04/2018

Brianna · Married on 07/14/2018
We hired 1000 Stories Events for day-of wedding coordination and I could not be more pleased with how smoothly our ceremony and reception went! We had a somewhat challenging day to execute, with our ceremony site located several miles away from the reception venue and Melodi went above and beyond in so many ways to make sure that all of the details at both locations were handled. She was truly indispensable and because we knew everything was in her capable hands, we were able to relax and truly enjoy the day, which was priceless. Looking back on the day, I can't imagine taking responsibility for all of the day-of details myself nor successfully delegating them to family and friends. I highly recommend the services of 1000 Stories Events.Sent on 07/21/2018

Melodi was such a joy to work with. She was so responsive and helpful with any questions I had. I decided to change where we were going to have our photos prior and asked Melodi for suggestions. She replied quickly with some ideas and even went to one of the suggested locations to take some photos so I could see what the location was like. I was so happy with my decision to hire a coordinator for the last month and we couldn't have been happier with the job Melodi did. Highly recommended!Sent on 06/18/2018

Melodi is a remarkable Event Planner! We were secure in our choice at our first meeting! She went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was spectacular! I had a colorful multicultural wedding and she worked wonderfully with all the details I had arranged! I had several surprises, which included a bollywood dance for my groom and a flash mob musical departure and she was there to help with rehearsals and coordination on the day of the wedding. My parents surprised us with singing a Hawaiian song that my aunt danced the hula to and Melodi helped with a secret rehearsal for them too! She even came to my apartment the morning of the wedding to give me a bride emergency kit! I highly recommend her services! She and her staff are delightful! You will be so grateful to have them!Sent on 06/07/2018

I had a wonderful experience with Melodi. From the start she was approachable, comfortable, and available. I appreciated her flexibility as well as her continued contact through out my planning process. She provided several planning tools to help with everything from photo lists to day of timeline and ceremony need to brings. During my wedding Melodi ensured a seemly transition from set up to ceremony to reception; I didn’t have to worry about a thing including clean up! She is well worth the value presented especially when paired with the Brickstone Ballroom venue.Sent on 06/20/2018
