  • 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!

  • 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 take... Read more

    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 :)) Next time you're out this way, look me up (maybe bring some friends to celebrate your 1 year anniversary)! XO, Melodi

  • 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!

    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! XO, Melodi

  • 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, e... Read more

  • 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!

    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! XO!

  • 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. 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.

    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! Congratulations again and thank you for being such awesome clients.

  • Melodi was an amazing asset to my wedding. The month prior to my wedding, she was an amazing support contacting my vendors and organizing the rehearsal and wedding day schedule. The day of the wedding I got to completely enjoy every moment. If there were any problems she addresses them quickly and calmly and without bothering me. Melodi really gave me a chance to enjoy my wedding day.

  • Melodi was very helpful and responsive in the months leading up to our wedding. Each time I had a freak out or moment of uncertainty or just a question, she responded quickly and thoroughly. We had a fairly large wedding and Melodi was able to handle it very well. She was very easy to work with and We would definitely recommend Melodi for day of coordination! Overall our wedding was a huge success and turned out really lovely. That would not have been possible without her!
