Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway

Hi! I’m Melissa, maestro of harmonizing logistics and party-thrower extraordinaire. I’m also a big fan of my fiancé, pottery making, the ocean, 80’s rock, Oregon wine tasting, and my puppy dog, Chief.

I was raised in McMinnville, OR by my wonderful mom and dad alongside a too-cute-for-her-own-good little sister. My passion for events and entertaining has been something that was evident ever since I was a child, my grandma always said I had a flair for the dramatics. My knack for event coordination became obvious throughout high school and college years, from organizing the prom group to coordinating a college wide bar crawl. From non-profit and corporate events to weddings, I have had the privilege to dabble in a wide variety of event preparation. My favorite part of the planning process is when all the pieces come together in one fluid timeline. I pay specific attention to the event logistics, timeliness and event flow.  That way, when the day of the event comes all you have to do is show up, look pretty and have a good time.

Bonus: I have been a bridesmaid - alot. I'm the shortest one in all the pictures below. It has been so much fun being involved with all my friends weddings. I am honored that I get to continue being a part of weddings, just without the matching dress.
