MELODY HALL  |  OWNER + LEAD PLANNER

Born and raised in Minnesota.
I have a background in marketing & communications (Go Gophers!)
My husband and I were married at the Hard Rock Hotel in Cancun, Mexico.
Crazy cat lady. 'Nuff said.
OK, I lied. I kind of have a thing for dogs, too.
I'm addicted to Dunn Brothers [mochas] and literally go there every single day.
I once ran a half marathon. Keyword: once #NeverAgain
I like to jam out to hip hop and rap music. It's no secret either.
LOVE dessert (donuts, cake, cookies, chocolate -- I'LL TAKE IT ALL)


"Events by Melody is a team of all-stars! They are professional, hard-working, and detail oriented. They will do everything in their power to make your day perfect."
