Melody was our coordinator we hired to help us plan our wedding. We hired her very early on, as she came so highly recommended by a friend who used her services. My friend Sarah, could not sing her praises high enough... so we knew from early on that we were in good hands! And boy were we right! From our first meeting nearly a year before our wedding to the day, Melody was right there with us every step of the way! She always went the extra step to make sure we had everything we needed! Throughout the planning process she would always respond to our emails and phone calls within a timely manner, and boy is that so helpful when you're planning a wedding!
On the day of our wedding, she came to my hotel where the bridal party was getting ready just to simply check on us and make sure we had everything we needed and were doing ok. She then went on to the venue to make sure the vendors had arrived and that everything was being set up to our liking. She always went above and beyond to help make our special day run so smoothly, both my husband and I felt so relaxed and calm with Melody by our side. Our night was PERFECT and I just know it was because she took care of everything. We didn't have one hiccup or stressful moment... which I am hearing from others is very very rare! So if you are looking for a quality wedding coordinator, look no further because Melody is truly one of a kind!! You will be so thankful and grateful for her!!

Melody was such a joy to work with to plan for our wedding at Rancho Las Lomas on September 3, 2016. She was our trusted confidante, knew the ins-and-outs of getting the big day together, and gave us so much invaluable advice! Wedding planning is stressful, but every call or meeting with Melody made it all melt away! We cannot recommend her enough! We miss her, and we're sure you will too!

Melody is the most amazing wedding coordinator we could've ever asked for! Her thoughtfulness, professionalism and organizational skills are top notch. Melody's friendly, sincere demeanor immediately put my daughter and I at ease and in the weeks leading up to the wedding, her calm assurance and confidence were so important. She has become a friend to us both and the #1 reason the wedding proved to be the best day if my daughter's life.

I don't recommend Melody Walker! Melody comes across very nice and friendly, but once you pay the deposit and sign the contract, she's MIA. I was a bridesmaid to a bride who used her as her coordinator. The bride was stressed out the entire time, I took the duties that this wedding coordinator claimed she would do. She doesn't do anything but make a timeline (that we didn't end up using, our dj ended up taking over) and call you at 9:30pm at to discuss the fact that she was going to be gone on the wedding and a fill-in would be there, Cindy. This was the biggest rip off ever. So, not only was melody not even there the day of, her assistant didn't know what was going on and continued to ask the bride and myself details about the wedding. It was the biggest waste of money. Don't use her.

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 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 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.

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 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!!!
