MSH Events

Honestly, we weren't even sure that we needed a coordinator since our wedding was relatively small (75ppl) and we already had the day fully planned out. However, once the day came, we soon realized how amazingly helpful having Melanie around would be. In a nutshell, Melanie is awesome - she will think of every detail you haven't thought of and and most importantly, will let you keep your focus on what is truly important - your spouse to be!

Why do you want to work with APW Couples?

I want to work with APW Couples because they tend to be more open-minded and, well, practical. I’m just a regular gal who loves bringing weddings to life. I’d like to make a bit of a living too, but I know you’re probably not a millionaire either. The APW community already understands this and is already ready to move forward in the best way possible. I also love that APW Couples are often hands-on. As a planner, I may work for you, but it’s so much better when I work with you!

Describe your artistic approach to weddings?

As a dancer, I definitely appreciate aesthetically pleasing events. But I’m also aware that a beautiful performance is not just one that looks pretty and is technically sound, it has to be meaningful to the dancers/choreographers involved. Similarly for weddings, I like to start with the couple; finding out who they are, what they like to do, and what holds special meaning to them. Let all their ideas flow, highlight the moments that seem the most poignant, and choreograph it into a single day/weekend. Also, being an island doesn’t work. I often like to pick my friends’ brains for cool new ideas. We’re all very DIY, arts and crafts types, so we’re always on the look out for fun new projects!

What are your non-work-related hobbies?

I’m an absolute sci fi and fantasy bookworm; pretty much wanted to be an author when I was growing up. I’m also a salsa dancer extraordinaire, but love all types of dance!

What’s your favorite book?

The Count of Monte Cristo

What’s your favorite movie?


If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?

Why are all of Taylor Swift’s songs so catchy?! But seriously, current fav is Lips Are Movin by Meghan Trainor.
