and I love planning weddings

What started as a love for planning events for hairstylists (no really, it exists) evolved into a full-fledged journey into the enchanting world of weddings. As a mom, I love finding joy in creating magical moments for everyone around me, from my family and friends to the couples who entrust me with the best day of their lives.

Beyond the world of weddings, I am surrounded by an incredible family—the best mom/newly-promoted grandma in the world, a delightful slew of dogs who will bark on all our calls, and a husband who moonlights as a day-of coordinator. 

When I'm not immersed in wedding details, you'll find me hanging out with my daughter, engrossed in an episode of Dateline, working on my other business, Babe to Bride, at the beach with my herd of dogs, or listening to Taylor Swift.  I've also been known to do all five at the same time.

I pride myself on the relationship I establish with my clients.  Whether you book us for Month-Of Coordination of Full-Service Planning, I take my time getting to know you, your fiance, and your incredible love story.

Got it!

"We can't thank you enough for all your hard work leading up to and during the weekend.  It was a truly mafical weekend and we've been basking in the love and memories since.  There were so many times throughout this process we just looked at each other and said "Thank God for Mel."
