Melody is simply the only choice! We hired Melody for our Day of Wedding Coordination however she was much more than that to me by my wedding date. She made the organization leading up to the wedding so much less stressful than it otherwise would have been. She made sure everything went according to plan on the day of and she took care of me, my groom, and our family and friends till the very end of the night. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. Thank you Melody!

Melody Walker is the best wedding coordinator I could have asked for. Other vendors, whether they had a long partnership with her or had just met her for the first time, even told me how great she was to work with and how lucky I was to find her! She has decades of experience in OC and it shows- she knows who to work with and how logistics work at different venues. She is professional, but very friendly. She also was willing to work with my budget because she's such a generous person.

Many day-of coordinators are only involved on the day of the wedding, just as their job description says. Sometimes you meet beforehand to plan the wedding day, but their involvement is at a minimum. That's all I asked of Melody, but she gave me so much more. We met three times before the wedding, spoke on the phone and through email, and then she attended our rehearsal. Due to our special arrangement, her associate Cindy took over on our wedding day. Naturally, I was worried that some items or directions would be lost in translation, but everything transitioned smoothly from Melody to Cindy. They've been working together for a dozen years, so they have a system set up for these things. This means that Melody did all the work up to the day of the wedding, and Cindy took over some of the coordination just before the wedding and also coordinated on the big day. Melody sent me a checklist, gathered info on my vendors, helped me figure out how to set everything up at the venue, and provided a detailed timeline for the wedding. Cindy contacted all the vendors ahead of time to confirm that the details were correct and then put the wedding plan into place. She ran around all day keeping the venue people in line!

I can't rave enough about Melody and Cindy. They are friendly, well-connected, super experienced, and quick to take care of any issues. I recommended them to everyone!

Melody is the best wedding planner ever..she knows everyone in the industry and everyone loves her. I planned my wedding from 2,000 miles away in 8 months and it was flawless. Everything I could have dreamed of and more. Once I talked to Melody I went from being stressed to being excited about my wedding planning. She kept me organized and literally answered my questions before I could ask them. I LOVE you Melody Walker!!!

My wedding was one of the best days of my and my husband's life; it would have not been the same without Melody Walker. While we were planning our wedding from abroad, Melody helped my mom plan our perfect day. I would receive email updates asking for my advice and input and every time I had a specific request, it was taken care of immediately and with great attention to detail. When I finally met Meloday, it was like meeting a new member of the family. She is so pleasant, warm, funny and caring. Up to the last minute details before the wedding, Melody made sure that I did not feel the stresses or pressure at all, and I was confident that we were in good hands. On the day of, she was incredible; always there when you needed her and two steps ahead of the game. We really did have the best day and evening ever and if I had to do it again, I would absolutely have Melody be a part of it.

Melody was fantastic! She has a ton of knowledge and great suggestions. She helped me fine tune many of ideas for my wedding day. She had excellent vendors contacts that turned out fabulous. My venue supplied me with a "day of coordinator" which was great but I had a lot of details and things I wanted done differently. Melody was my eyes for everything she made sure all of my extra details were done exactly they way I wanted. I trusted her completely and was able to get ready and not worry about anything. She offered meeting times for me a couple times through out my process and several check in emails just to make sure I was doing all right with my planning. It was nice to have someone that really cared and wanted to make sure my husband and my wedding went fantastic and smooth!

Melody is one of the recommended coordinators on the Rancho Las Lomas (my wedding venue) website. I decided to visit three coordinators listed on the website before going with Melody (I chose her mainly because while I'm sure anyone listed on Rancho's website must be stellar, Melody was the warmest and nicest person). By using Melody's full time services, my wedding planning was incredibly efficient and my actual wedding day was in my eyes perfect. I met up with her quite a number of times, and she was always so encouraging and supportive. Melody was very responsive to all my emails, and she has great relationships with my other vendors, which made vendor meetings really enjoyable. I chose to use her invitations, which many of my guests gave me compliments on. Melody exudes warmth and elegance, which made both my mother and mother-in-law instantly love her on the first meeting, and my husband was very impressed by how well she handled everything during our wedding day while staying very well hidden in the background (his words: "Now that's great service"). Melody also let me borrow her teapots for my Chinese tea ceremony, her treasure chest for the wedding cards, and her side vases for the sand ceremony. I am so glad that I went to Melody, and I highly recommend her to any future brides who want an incredibly nice and organized coordinator.

Melody is the sweetest, most professional wedding planner. Our wedding was absolutely splendid! She stayed right on top of every detail and got back to us quickly every time we needed her. Her vendor recommendations helped us immensely, especially when we needed a videographer at the last minute. She and her assistants met our every need the day of the wedding as well. She provided MORE than we expected in the way of services and made me feel like I was her only bride. Thanks again Melody!

My daughter-in-law to be and I chose Melody to be our planner almost 2 years out from the wedding. She planned to be married at a picky venue (the Nixon Library) and we needed a planner who could make sure everything the venue wanted (as well as what we wanted) would come to pass. Melody worked with us every step of the way to ensure that the wedding came off without a hitch. She knew many of the vendors personally and went to bat for us when we needed her to intercede with vendors. She truly was on our side helping to smooth things out and get things done. My daughter-in-law's vision was over-the-top and Melody put it together flawlessly. Not only did our guests rave that it was THE BEST WEDDING THEY HAD EVER ATTENDED, but the vendors who were there said it was the best wedding they had ever served at EVER!!! When the vendors (who work at a lot of weddings) say it's a fabulous event, you know it's great, and Melody was the one who pulled it together. She made the bride (and me, the mother-of-the-groom) feel prized and special every step of the way. You could not ask for a more professional, kind person to put your special day together

I booked Melody as my wedding planner about a year away from my wedding. I don't think I could of picked a better individual for the biggest day of my life. Melody helped us (my husband and I) with almost everything on our monthly to do list. She provided us with the best of the best vendors and with all different price ranges, had unlimited amount of meeting times for us to chat about the big day and any concerns. The thing that we loved the most is that she listened to what we wanted and what kind of theme we were going for. She didn't change anything about our ideas. She just helped make our dreams come true. I would recommend Melody Walker to every bride who has a dream.

Melody Walker was the coordinator for my wedding in Pasadena, CA on December 10, 2006. She did an absolutely amazing job. Everything went very smoothly, and we did not have to worry about a single thing. She coordinated with our vendors, created a timeline for the day, assisted us with contracts, gave us tips on all aspects of the wedding, ran the rehearsal, assisted in decorating our site... she did everything! And the thing that I love about Melody is that it's like having an extra mother - but a mother who happens to be an expert in weddings! She was less like a drill sergeant (like some of the other coordinators we interviewed), and she really put her heart into our wedding. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Even now that it's a year after our wedding, she sent us a sweet Christmas gift. I hope to always stay in touch with her.

While she is located in Orange County, she also does weddings in the Los Angeles area and beyond.

How many weddings to you know of that went beautifully without a glitch or problem? This one did and I can’t thank Melody enough. This is one person you cannot have a wedding without!

Before hiring Melody, I had tried to convince my mom to skip a wedding coordinator in order to save money. Boy am I glad my mom wouldn't budge on the issue. Melody was truly a lifesaver. She put everyone at ease, went WAY beyond the scope of her contracted services, and truly cared for myself and my whole family. She was a part of my special day and I hope to stay friends with her into the future. Do yourself and hire Melody as soon as possible.

Melody Walker helped us plan my daughter's wedding, July 30 2011, which turned out to be the best wedding I've ever attended!!! Melody held our hands through the planning of items we were unfamiliar with, she introduced us to AMAZING vendors, she gave advise when asked/needed, she guided us according to our price range, and she knew when to take a step back & let us make decisions. Melody was extremely sweet but yet professional, and she returned our calls & emails immediately. On the wedding day I knew everything was going to flow well because it was in Melody's hands...and it was PERFECT! We could tell she's been doing this a while now and is an expert! Melody works so well with everyone & all the vendors which is why everything went so smooth. I can't say enough good things about her; I HIGHLY recommend Melody as a wedding coordinator.

Melody was a joy to work with. She has done both my brother's wedding and mine and both were amazing. She has a talent for making everything seem manageable and stress free. I could not have hoped for a better person to help us plan our big day. She thought of all the details and had a great vendor list. Many of the vendors gave us great deals because Melody was our planner. Whether you want her to guide you through every inch, or a more hands off approach, she knows how to stay involved and productive. Everything is catered to your preferences and your personality really shines through at the wedding. Not one time did i feel like we were being pressured into another cookie cutter wedding.

We could not have had such an amazing wedding without her. Her wealth of knowledge about etiquette, trends and novel ideas really came in handy. She really is the "one stop shop" for weddings. We got our invitations, goody bags, save-the-dates, florist, photographer, musician, limo, rentals, officiant, everything through her!

You will love her!!

My husband and I were married in May 2009. I travel often for work and knew I needed help planning my wedding. When we looked for a planner, we had two main criteria: more than 15 years in the business and the willingness to work in a smaller budget and "off the wedding grid". We told Melody our priority was entertaining our friends and family for the evening with great food and wine. Melody got what we were trying to do and embraced my effort to focus on saving money where it didn't matter while spending money on the things that were important. Her vendor recommendations were excellent and were perfect for our personalities and vision of the day. She was a partner to us in the planning and a great director on the day. Everything went perfect - as far as I know - which is just what any bride would want.

I thought I would never need a wedding coordinator, as it seemed like I could do it all. I soon found out how daunting a task a wedding is -- especially one with around 150 people! Knowing how busy I am in my daily life, I decided to go with a coordinator. I was given 5 names, and she was recommended as "the best." Well, that is the absolute truth! Not only did she come to the rescue when our original officiant became unavailable two weeks before the wedding, she calmed all of us down and said not to worry; she would get a great one, and she did! Our wedding was the most perfect day and had many more beautiful moments because she knew how to guide us into doing special things (like the bride and groom sending letters to each other in the holding room before the wedding) -- it was romantic, beautiful, and memorable for us and our guests who continue to say that it was hands-down, the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen. Hire Melody. She will be your coordinator, your mentor and, if you're lucky, she'll be a new friend.

Melody is one of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet. We hired her as our Day of Wedding Coordinator and she was such a great help. We had SOOOOOO many (and I mean SOOOOOO MANY) additional decorative things we wanted to incorporate into our wedding outside of what our florist did, and Melody and her assistant nailed everything that needed to be set up. We were worried she might feel overwhelmed with the amount of stuff we wanted to do, as we literally filled Melody's car with boxes of extra decor and misc stuff, but she accomplished everything, in addition to being there for me before the ceremony while getting ready. Thanks to Melody's help, I was really able to just relax on our wedding day and did not have to stress about anything or anyone. To top it off, she and her assistant packed everything back up at the end of the night. Words cannot describe how sweet and genuine Melody is. It was truly a pleasure to work with her. Thank you Melody!!

Melody did an excellent job helping my daughter with her wedding. She had a large wedding party to deal with and was extremely organized. She made sure that the family was well taken care of and we had nothing but complimentary comments from all of our friends. If you are planning an event Melody is the person to hire.
