Melody was just what I was looking for in an event planner. She was more than my day of but more like a second ear to help guide me through that last round of decisions and really helped pull off a flawless evening! Everyone told me to expect something to go wrong and yet Melody must have done her job so well that I never knew if anything even went wrong. She handled everything with grace and took the stress off me (the bride) whenever she could. She introduced me to a few extra vendors and I think that I introduced her to some as well. She has a great presence and her professionalism is outstanding. My day wouldn't have been complete without her assistance:)

Melody Walker is a MUST if you are having a wedding. We were planning our wedding event for a year and a half and Melody was there from start to finish. She really opened our eyes to new ideas, and made sure we were on top of everything to avoid procrastination. She completely understood our personality and theme we were aiming for, and with her experience she showed us things that she thought we would like best. Most importantly, she was always there for moral support, especially when we felt stressed as time got closer to the wedding. On the actual wedding day, we had 300 guests at the Richard Nixon library (she is one of the trusted wedding coordinators there), and she made everything run flawlessly. We literally didn't have to worry about anything else except for having fun. We felt very confident in her as she coordinated with all the vendors and made everyone be on the same page. Our proposed itinerary of the wedding day was executed perfectly, all because of her. We became great friends, and even a few months after the wedding, we still text and send each other cards. She is truly an outstanding wedding planner, and we could not have imagined planning a wedding without her! I strongly recommend MELODY WALKER to anyone having a wedding!!!

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.
