  • I wish I could give Yvonne and her staff 100 stars. From the beginning Yvonne was welcoming and warm at our first meeting, it was like we've known her for a while. I was hesitant to hire a event planner but boy am I glad that I did it was worth every penny. Yvonne is truly amazing at what she does! She pulled off my dream wedding in about 4 weeks (Not to mention it was in my parents backyard talk about working from scratch). During this unsettling time it was truly amazing to have someone who was so invested in making sure I had the wedding of my dream I truly would of been lost without Yvonne and her assistant. If your looking a wedding planner who literally does it all with ease please hire Unique Melody Events & Design! They are the best in the business.

    Alysha, working with you and your family was such a joy. The 4 weeks was not enough time to spend with you all, but it was so much fun! Through all your previous stress and endeavors, I am so proud to have been part of the team to finalize and execute your wedding day!

  • I was a bride suddenly DIY'ing due to the pandemic, and my fiance and I needed someone we could trust to run the show and make sure nothing feel through the cracks. I didn't really know what a day-of coordinator was but my friend recommended I find one about 2 months out from our wedding after several weeks of daily complaints about planning a wedding after COVID cancelled our original plans. I found Yvonne via Google and hired her basically the same day- she was that impressive and I had total confidence in her from the first time we talked. I went from crying daily from wedding planning stress to being so relieved that Yvonne had my back. This was the best investment I made for our wedding and our engagement, and hiring her was the key to savoring the last part of our engagement. Planning a wedding = hard, planning in a pandemic = harder. One thing I loved about Yvonne is that she handles stuff under the radar and doesn't involve you unless completely necessary. She made our vision... Read more

  • I found Yvonne's blog online after researching local vendors. Her aesthetic style is pleasing to the eye and her organizational skills were obvious. Having met her at the later stage of my wedding planning, I did not require her planning skills. Yet she was open to any questions I had about ideas/suggestions for the wedding. Yvonne also helped me decorate my sweetheart table and was flexible as we had to change it from indoor wedding to outdoor wedding due to covid. The last month of the wedding, she asked for all the information and then only contacted me if necessary. One of the vendors gave her some trouble but she handled it well. She pitched in when necessary and I could not have asked for a better person for the job. She and her assistant lindsay paid close attention to detail as they set up the reception space. She also boxed everything up at the end of the day and I did not having anything to worry about. I would recommend Yvonne to any of my friends and family.

    Thank you Priya! Working with you and Harshil throughout this pandemic was a pleasure. You handled the challenges presented to you with grace and in the end had a most beautiful celebration with family and friends!

  • Yvonne and the Unique Melody team helped us plan our dream wedding. From the beginning of our process through wedding day details, Yvonne made it easy have the wedding we wanted. Everyone had told us how stressful planning a wedding could be, but she made the process fun! The ceremony we envisioned required extra coordination and creativity, and she turned all of our ideas into more than we could have imagined. She did an exceptional amount of behind the scenes work with all of our vendors – from the lighting to the band to the caterers – without us having to worry about all the logistical details. On the day of, she made sure everything went smoothly and that we were calm and stress free (or at least as stress free as can be). As a bonus, all of her vendor recommendations were locally owned and operated. Thank you, Yvonne and Unique Melody!

    Thank you Rose! It was such a pleasure working with you and Austin to create your vision. I also had fun and will always remember the most creative father daughter dance!

  • In a single sentence: If you are at all considering wedding planning or a day-of coordinator, Yvonne will make your wedding day flow perfectly. In our experience, she and her Unique Melody Events team were over-the-top fantastic. From our pre-wedding phone calls to her incredible work on our wedding day, Yvonne was a warm presence who handled every detail with professionalism, care, and confidence. She took the reins so that we could focus on what was most important: being in the moment, surrounded by loved ones. We would recommend her and her team to anybody, without a second of hesitation.

  • We hired Yvonne as our day-of coordinator for our wedding this past August. Truly the best decision we made in the whole wedding process! Yvonne was so on-top of everything, flexible, go with the flow, and super efficient. She made the day run so smoothly so we could just enjoy our wedding! Our wedding was at a camp with limited infrastructure in place for the event (very DIY). She was the glue that held it all together, and we can't recommend her enough. Thanks so much Yvonne for making our wedding so special!

    Thank you Louisa, It was an honor and a pleasure! I loved working with you and your amazing families. My favorite part was standing in the middle of the camp and gathering all the families for photos. I fulfilled my dreams of being a camp leader/organizer!

  • Yvonne made our wedding dreams a reality. From the day we met her, her warm go getter personality was one we needed to make our wedding happen. She helped calm us and reassure us when needed, answered any and all questions we had during planning, and delivered the most beautiful setup and flow for our big day. I honestly don’t know how she does it all, but she is simply, amazing. Our day wouldn’t have been as smooth and successful without her!

  • I was having trouble finding a wedding coordinator who I connected with. There are so many stuffy ones and I needed someone who was normal and just got it. My photographer recommended Yvonne and I knew instantly she was perfect! She was always calm, organized, and 10 steps ahead of the game. I was able to totally relax and enjoy the wedding because I knew everything would look exactly how we wanted and that everything was taken care of. She also handled installing all our lighting and it was fabulous! Yvonne and her team are the best!

  • Hiring Yvonne as our Day-of-Coordinator was perhaps the best decision we made in the whole wedding planning process! We are pretty low key people and she helped us to have the chill, low-stress wedding day that we wanted. Yvonne went above and beyond, meeting with us to walk through the venue with the caterer, helping us come up with a timeline, communicating with vendors leading up to the day of, wrangling our families at the rehearsal, setting up and breaking down our decorations, and coordinating the wedding day flawlessly! Our venue said that she was the calmest, most relaxed wedding coordinator/planner they had ever interacted with. She is incredibly competent, level-headed, kind, and easy to work with! We had an absolutely perfect, stress-free night, and Yvonne was a huge part of making that happen!

    Thank you Laura, It was an honor to work with you and Stephen! I loved how personal your wedding day was. Bringing it all back to where it started at such a meaningful place for you made the celebrations all that more special. I am glad that we were able to make it smooth and relaxed for you and your guests. "Fair winds and Following Seas!" Yvonne

  • It's always hard to put your vision in someone else's hands.. especially being a fellow designer yourself. But choosing Yvonne, to not only put together my vision and all my Diy decor along with coordinating my wedding.. was the best decision ever..! She was on top of everything... and I mean everything!!! Being a bride is nerve wrecking, especially with so much responsibility and the rush of everything going on, you forget to breathe or even eat. Yvonne was just on top of it all.. she made our day go smoothly, she decorated our ceremony area and hall as envisioned. Everything was perfect.. I would highly recommend her for all events.. She is very talented..as is her assistant. They are a great team!!! You will not be disappointed in your choice.. I know we definitely were happy with our decision and glad to have met such a great person.. I felt like we knew each other forever.. I hope for the opportunity to work with them again.. and I will definitely look forward to it. Thank you fro... Read more

  • Yvonne was an asset to have for our wedding and ensured the rehearsal and day-of ran smoothly and on time. She met us at our venue two weeks prior to go over the layout and answer any logistical questions that we had. She took charge leading our rehearsal the day prior, greeting our wedding party, and running through processional and recessional, making sure everyone knew where to stand. On the day of the wedding, Yvonne stayed in contact with our MOH and Groomsman to keep them updated and informed. Her and her assistant set up our centerpieces, decorated the tables very elegantly, and made our vision come to life. She cued the bridal party for the ceremony and reception entrance and made sure the entirety of the night ran on schedule, even politely snagging us from some chatty guests to make sure we could continue with our schedule of events. Lastly, Yvonne made sure our final payments and tips were distributed to all our vendors and packed up all the décor at the end of the ni... Read more

  • Extremely disappointed! Planner have another wedding and NO staff AT mine. 125 person wedding. No arrangements made for BRIDE & Groom transportation from ceremony to reception or from reception to Hotel at end of night. NO. Planner did NOT check IN WITH the bride until ceremony. AT 6pm. Awful! Did not COME TO THE bridal party dressing suite. Photographers did not have timeline. Had to improvise for pictures in hotel. The bridal party had No instructions, no schedule was given to the photographers, bridal party or groomsmen. No information or announcement at the end of cocktail hour to reception hall. MOH, MOB & Bridesmaids had to handle way too much that day. A ton of loose ends. All kinds of confusion at a very expensive wedding. Poor execution.

    responded with the following comments.

    I do appreciate the feedback from clients, regardless if they are good or bad. However, the comments that were made sound like they were made without all the information. I would like the opportunity to address them, and if you are still unhappy with the reasoning, I will accept the review for what it is, an outside view, not from my client. To whom left the review: Thank you for your feedback, I am sorry your experience was not to your expectation, however I am surprised after all seemed pleased with my performance throughout working together. In regards to the comments made, I did check in with the bride briefly in the morning however, I typically like to communicate with MOH and vendors, so not to bother the bride and groom on the day, which I did throughout that morning, as recorded on my phone. I stopped at the hotel, as I had to pick up the remaining items that were not dropped off. I did not stay as I had to get on site to set up both ceremony and reception site. Photographer's most defiantly had the timeline. I have prior to wedding day communication documented, as well as phone conversations. Throughout the day, I insisted that they move along with shots, due to the heat, however they insisted on working the way they wanted to provide the best photos. We even had a mutual shot list that was shared between us, that they did not follow. I was in communication with them all prior to ceremony to keep them on schedule (again have the documented texts), but they moved at their own pace, any un-organization in regards to photos was their own doing. I left the cocktail reception following final photos, and communicated to the DJ I would be back to announce cocktail, as I had to check in with final set up and caterer. The caterer needed 5 more minutes and I was waiting on the photographer to get detail shots (again have the text documented), so I sent my assistant to go back to cocktail to give DJ the word on when to announce for guests to go to reception, however the DJ announced before my cue. Still we were ready when guests arrived and I went back to shuttle the wedding party and bride and groom over, whereas the original plan was for everyone to walk over. Some did and stated that others were on their way. Obviously due to the heat and time, I went back to gather the remaining wedding party as a courtesy. In addition, even though it was not communicated to me that the floral vases needed to be returned, I went back the following days to return vases and look for a missing ring. No other issues were communicated to me. No additional staff was hired for this event. I hope that this information brings light to some of the comments made. I appreciate your time and I hope to hear back. I am happy to address and hear out any other feedback in regards to my services as I am always continuing to better myself as an individual, professional and business owner.

  • My wife and I decided to put on a wedding in my in laws’ backyard and in doing so were met with a variety of challenges, missteps, and hiccups. Yvonne was able to help us make our vision work giving us guidance along the way. On the day of, Yvonne and her assistant executed exactly what we had wanted and made it so our vision came to life. Could not recommend her enough!
