Melanie was a big help in planning my wedding! I didn't know where to start or what I needed to do, and Melanie made a checklist and time line so I could keep on track. She helped me book a terrific florist and got me a credit from my photographer. She went above and beyond for me, and I know she'd do the same for any other wedding. I was extremely happy with the look of the wedding, Melanie's availability to meet up or being "on call" for me through email, and she really kept things smooth on that hectic day so I could enjoy my perfect wedding!

Melanie was the best choice I made during the wedding planning...I saved my husband alot of headaches by hiring her. With mutiple venues I was worried I wouldn't get everything done and she handled everything seamlessly! Her on site emergency kit was a big hit...she literally had everything you can possibly need in there!

I highly recommend Melanie Tanko Events, LLC to help plan and coordinate your events. Melanie gets the work done according to your budget, prep time and motif. She has keen eyes for details and is flexible, giving you lots of options to choose from to meet your needs. I don't have a big wedding but she made it a very special and memorable event of my life.

I was so nervous planning my wedding, I had Melanie by my side the whole way reassuring me that things would be perfect. I never felt like I was just another client... I truly felt like she was as much interested in my wedding as I was. I'm so glad I decided to have her run my day of...because I didn't have to worry about a thing!
