Matt and I wanted to send you a quick thank you message for doing such an amazing job on our day!! I know I gave you a lot of tasks and a bit hectic dealing - but you handled it SO well and got the job done. I wasn't quite sure how it was all going to pan out with all the details and my requests, but honestly, I have to say it was everything I envisioned and more. I am not just saying that.
A year and a half of planning our day, organizing every detail, and putting so much work into it, and then handing it off to a stranger and giving someone else total control - I have to say is a bit terrifying. But you put me at ease with your calm, cool and collected take on everything and truly made my dream wedding come true. You did exactly everything how I wanted it and there was nothing that I felt was left undone.
Thank you again for being such a wonderful day-of wedding planner, we wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend you to someone else. I hope it wasn't too stressful for you and you got to enjoy yourself as well :)

Thank you Melanie for helping a clueless bride and groom. We were so relieved to have you coordinate from the beginning of the wedding planning process, right to the last minute on the dance floor. Your communication was always positive, calm, and prompt. Knowing that planning was completely overwhelming for both of us, you took the reigns from the start by contacting various venues for us, after understanding our personalities. Thank you for taking us on a shortlisted tour and for finding a ceremony and reception venue that we absolutely loved and suited our needs. You were instrumental in finding and liaising with our vendors. Organizing the hotel room blocks with my extended family was no easy task! We really appreciated your weekly to-do lists that kept us on track two months before the wedding (you are the master of colour-coded spreadsheets). You guided us on etiquette and thought of questions we did not even think of. Thank you for being there for us every step of the way, from giving us your opinion on invitation layouts to completely taking over the day before the wedding when a certain bride was too hungover to function. The wedding day was organized, flowed well, and most importantly, fun! Best part of all? Not one complaint afterwards from the picky mother-of-the-bride! A feat in itself. Thank you Melanie and Keepsake events for an unforgettable day.

Thank you Melanie for a perfect destination wedding. Planning a wedding 5,000 miles away is no small feat and we couldn't have been more thrilled to have worked with Melanie who planned and coordinated our wedding in Vienna, Austria.
Melanie brought our vision for the day to life so beautifully, while ensuring that every detail (details we would have never even consider!) was thought of. She made it look so effortless and our friends still remark how relaxed we were on our wedding day, because we had 100% trust that the day would go off without a hitch. In fact it surpassed our expectations, and perhaps our guests' too.
We were truly able to enjoy the days leading up to the wedding, and savour every moment of the wedding day, which goes by so fast. She even arranged a horse carriage ride for us on the day so we could savour the magic of Vienna around us! We couldn't recommend her highly enough. Her thorough knowledge of the ins and outs from planning to day of coordination, calm demeanour, and collaborative approach make her a true joy to work with.

There aren't possibly enough words to describe how great Keepsake Events was! Melanie guided me through the whole wedding process with patience and utmost professionalism. She was on top of every details, extremely organized, professional and very easy to work with. Being a highly meticulous bride, I had countless long emails sent to her and each time, she had an answer to every question, a solution for every problem, suggestions to my idea and a quick response to every email. I really felt comfortable and confident that everything will go well and believed that I was in very capable hands. She is so creative and is full of ideas: she was able to incorporate all the programs that I wanted to include into our wedding day schedule. She took care of absolutely everything and I got the wedding of my dreams with all the details being perfect! I can see her passion and she will go above and beyond to create your perfect dream wedding. We truly cannot compliment Melanie enough as she made our wedding a beautiful and stress-free day for us. The planning could not have been the same enjoyable experience without her. Thank you!

It was such a great pleasure to have Melanie by our side as our wedding planner. Melanie was very patient and extremely detailed in every aspect of our wedding (even on things we didn't think of). Everything from budgeting, managing vendors and down to the flow of our wedding day schedule, she was on top of it all and far exceeded our expectations! She allowed us to not only enjoy the wedding planning process but also the actual wedding day itself, as the day went as perfectly as possible and we were completely worry free! I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Thank you so much Melanie for being part of our day and doing everything with a smile, we couldn't had asked for a better wedding planner!
