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 Bros [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.

Chocolate & prosecco…. YASSSSS!

HANNAH SEVERSON | LEAD EVENT COORDINATOR

I live in Minneapolis and love every single thing about it.

I have a siamese kitten named Frankie. She is named after Frank Sinatra and has blue eyes. Did I mention she is spoiled rotten?!

My obsessions include traveling, Harry Potter, coffee, wine, and weddings.
My friends are my life.

Die-hard Vikings fan. Melody once thought I was a Packer fan #StillUpset

I would bet you haven't met a more
talkative person than I. Let's chat.

LAUREN WEST | LEAD EVENT COORDINATOR

Graduated from MNSU-Mankato with a degree in Marketing + Graphic Design.

Not even 24 hours after graduating college, I traveled Europe for a month.

I could easily spend hours in Home Goods #yolo

Recently purchased our first home and cannot stop watching HGTV - next Joanna Gaines in the making?

My favorite season is fall, of course.
I tend to plan out every detail of my life #oops

 

RACHEL HALL | LEAD EVENT COORDINATOR

I have a rottweiler named Pedro. He's simply the best!

I also have a rottweiler puppy, Mac. He's pretty dang cute.

Vikings F-A-N-A-T-I-C #SkolVikings

Recently married! I am now officially Melody's sister-in-law!

In my spare time I enjoy traveling.

Fun fact: My favorite movie is Dirty Dancing.

I also enjoy binge watching Netflix series when I get a chance!

I absolutely love to travel, I highly recommend attending Oktoberfest in Munich.

Huge Vikings and Wild fan!

My FAVORITE place in the world is my cabin.
Camping is cool, too. Girl Scouts really paid off, I earned those patches :)

Never (ever) trust me to drive a snowmobile, it never ends well.

Wedding and events have always been my passion!

I will NEVER turn down an ice coffee… EVER.

You can find me in the candle aisle smelling every. single. one.

I love the feeling of crossing off my post-it note to-do lists!

Purple & gold all the way. SKOL.

Crazy animal lover.

I have two pooches, Rupert and Roscoe, but I want infinitely more.

Minnesota native.

Love me some Amy Winehouse.

Currently pursuing a bachelors degree in psychology.

Been trying to get Tom Hardy to be the groom in my future wedding, but its not working. At all.

 
 

 
Rachel and Tyler were AWESOME!! We literally don’t know what we would have done without them. Without a doubt, this was the best money we spent for the entire wedding. Rachel was so attentive and on top of everything that was going on! Nothing was missed and nothing went wrong (that I know of)!
