I think the pictures you've taken at our wedding was very professionally done. Better than the photographer's we hired. Had we known you possess such talent we would have asked you to be our photographer. We thank you for your personal touch at our wedding which makes it one of the most memorable days in our lives. Glad to have you and your family there, my dear!
I just want to say that you managed to pull off a miracle by getting all of us to smile and look normal! That might seem silly, but it's hard work to get a shot where everyone is happy with how they look and you made it happen. I love your creativity with poses, locations and props. The lighting, colors, and touch-ups were wonderful. I loved that you also took those unscripted, impromptu moments and made them into memories. I appreciate all the time you spent for us, thank you!
Melanie did an amazing job decorating our wedding. The decorations got more compliments from the guests at our wedding than the food; even my father-in-law (not an easy man to please) talks about the decorations at our wedding over a year and a half after the event. I couldn't have been more impressed by Melanie's good judgement and hard work. We told her what we wanted, and she knew exactly which decorations to use. She used the decorations perfectly in both size and quantity to compliment the space, and she was very warm and professional the whole time. She has a very diverse collection of decorations, and she's very good at mixing and matching them to create something unique for your event. She was extremely helpful the entire time we worked with her. If a decoration didn't look the same in the plan as it did in the venue, she was very flexible and made excellent choices on the spot to maximize the potential of our venue. She would be and has been my immediate first choice for another event, and I highly recommend her to anyone with an upcoming event.

When I decided to go with Melanie as my wedding planner I never expected a person to go above and beyond like she had. She helped me make decisions on flower colors, party favor ideas and styles, wedding invitation designs, created center piece ideas and even provided the items for the center piece design that I chose. She was able to do all this from a distance with her in Rapid City, myself in Omaha, NE and the wedding taking place in Minnesota. She was very good about communication through emails and phone calls and taking photos of the ideas she had and emailing those to me. She helped me more then anyone in my wedding party which I greatly appreciated seeing that I tended to be a little indecisive when it came to those big decisions. She helped me keep an open, creative mind and know which direction was perfect for our special day.

I cannot describe how wonderful it was to turn over to you, Melanie, all the decorating for the tables and gym for my daughter’s reception. We only met a couple of times to discuss colors and interests of the bride and groom. You worked a miracle – the day of the reception, I gasped to see how magically you transformed that gym into a beautiful, warm and inviting room for such a wonderful celebration. The tables’ display reflected the personality of the bride and groom as delicately lighted vases housed pictures of Emily and Nate’s courtship and engagement. The stage was draped in red/ black tulle with white tulle/lights mixed together to continue the theme. The stage had a variety of their wedding pictures to share with everyone. The arbor was elegantly decorated using the bridal bouquets intertwining the lights and tulle throughout to carry out the theme. I was so impressed with how you “lowered” the gym ceiling by draping red lanterns which kept the eyes focused lower and blending that into the walls with the tulle and lights. Emily’s color theme was carried through in every aspect of the decoration that had everyone, including Emily and Nate in awe and gratefulness for your talent. We thank you, Melanie, for all your hard work that made it a wonderful, memorable experience for the Beu/Isom family as we celebrated their marriage. We are very grateful for you. Thanks.
