About LuckEleven Events

LuckEleven Events

Owner, Lead Planner

I love love! Watching my couples' love stories unfold over the course of their planning journey brings me such immense joy. I want my couples to leave their wedding saying "Wow, that was so US!" I love customizing events with different colors, themes and surprises sprinkled throughout!

The couples I work with are selected based on how our personalities vibe. I truly become such good friends with all of my couples and remain friends with them after all is said and done. It makes a huge difference trusting your friend to coordinate your wedding day who knows your preferences so well!

    Melanie is the DREAM wedding planner and we cannot recommend full wedding planning with her enough. It's hard to put into words what working with Melanie feels like, but the best way we could describe it is working with your best friend or sister. They got your back, are equally invested in the success of your day, and just want to see you happy! Partnering with Melanie was a pure joy and my husband and I genuinely miss the planning process and collaborating with her every week. It's obvious when you work with her that she is a natural at her job - she's great with relationships, sensitive to all the various parties involved in wedding planning, organized, and wonderfully creative. She also goes out of her way to make herself available. There are so many small things that can be overwhelming when planning a wedding and every time we struggled through a decision or were confused about how something worked, Melanie jumped on a call with us to break it all down. We hired her from the very beginning and she helped us with everything from securing our venue and locking down our vendors to curating the aesthetic of the wedding and doing design work. Melanie has very strong relationships with some of the best wedding vendors in Southern California, and that made our wedding planning process substantially easier. Not only did she help narrow down the list based on our style and budget, but the vendors we preferred were eager to work with us since they love Melanie so much. This made a big difference since it can be difficult to book your preferred vendors in SoCal. When it came to design, she really listened to our vision and not only made sure that we followed it but she used her creativity to enhance that vision and bring it to life in ways that far exceeded our dreams. Melanie's talent was clear throughout the whole planning process, but when the actual wedding weekend came around we were blown away by her and her team. She was extremely thorough, detail-oriented, professional, and attentive. It helped us fully enjoy our wedding day to not have to worry about the small details or unforeseen challenges knowing that we could 100% trust Melanie to take care of them. It's clear that Melanie puts a lot of heart into weddings and this work is way more than just a job for her, but a passion. And it's that passion that really comes through and makes her so phenomenal.

    The greatest day of coordinator we could have asked for! Mel’s organization and communication skills made us feel so comfortable leading up to the big day. Her ability to think on her feet and react quickly made the wedding day a breeze. She guided us through areas where she anticipated issues and was calm in all situations. She was wonderful working with all of our family members and vendors, navigating every turn seamlessly. Multiple guests came up to my husband and me telling us how relaxed we seemed, Mel is responsible for much of our peace of mind through planning and executing our wedding weekend.

    Best money I ever spent! I was the type of bride that didn't originally want a wedding as I was terrified of the planning process and didn't want to end up working my wedding instead of enjoying it. Melanie 100% made this whole process seamless and dare I say I even started enjoying the process because she took all the guess work out for us. Instead of having hundreds of options to sift through, she heard our vision and budget and suggested a handful of truly amazing vendors for us to choose from. She was with us every step of the way communicating with them and answering our questions so nothing fell through the cracks. When the day came, she made our vision a reality some and we were able to relax and simply enjoy our day knowing everything was being taken care of. I can't recommend working with Melanie/ LuckEleven events enough!

    We loved working with Melanie! She helped us create and execute our vision from beginning to end and was there for us every step of the way. From calendar organization, tips and tricks, design, dos & don’ts, vendor assistance and more, she had us covered. We were so happy with how everything turned out. Thanks for always going the extra mile for your clients Mel!
