Melody is extremely organized and knows the answer to everything. I’m so glad I did partial planning and day-of coordination because times have changed and Melody knows all the latest modern wedding trends. Instead of searching through hundreds of blogs for answers, Melody was just a text or call away. She is always very fast to respond and can hook you up with some of the best, most economical vendors in Minneapolis. Melody truly goes above and beyond for her clients. There’s nothing better than having a planner as you approach your event. Melody did all the communicating with vendors, planned the logistics, mapped out our timeline and even handed out our vendor tips so we didn’t have to worry about a thing! Melody is very fun to work with and she’s the backbone you need on the day of your event. I will forever stay friends with Melody and will rave about her for the rest of my life!
