WE PLAN KICK ASS WEDDINGS.
Hello! I’m Melissa
Owner and Lead Planner of Devoted to You.
And I hate the wedding industry complex.
Yep, there it is, I said it. I know those are weird words coming from a wedding planner, but I didn’t say I hate weddings. I love those! And I am passionate about working with all couples in love and learning their stories.
What I don’t love is how the wedding industry tends to make couples feel like they have to conform to traditional norms.
I don’t love how if you don’t look like the “typical” couple getting married, you are more than likely underrepresented.
And I don’t love how everything has seemed to turn into a carbon copy of Pinterest (for the love of God, get the f*ck off Pinterest).
I believe in empowering couples to plan a wedding that reflects the two of them.
I believe in innovating and thinking outside of the box.
I believe in relying on the expertise of your vendor team to collaborate and create an amazing wedding experience.
And I believe in planning a wedding that supports inclusivity and diversity by working with black owned, women owned and LGBTQIA+ owned businesses as much as possible. Read more about our Diversity and Inclusivity Statement here.
FRESH AND FORWARD THINKING IS OUR FORTE
If you are looking for a traditional hotel ballroom wedding, you have come to the wrong place.
You will NOT find that here.
What you WILL find are innovative and creative ideas in non-traditional spaces, diversity and inclusivity and weddings that are cool AF.
“Brides & Grooms- stop your searching and start right here! I am so grateful to have worked with Melissa, Morgan, and the team for our wedding!
Melissa was so organized, informative and helpful from even our first conversation! She had worksheets to keep me organized and excellent recommendations for other vendors as well.
Every vendor we worked with was just as excited to find out we were working with Devoted To You as well! Day of our wedding could not have ran more smoothly and that is all thanks to Morgan! She made me feel so relaxed and comfortable that I felt like I had my best friend by my side all day.
I’ll never forget the moment walking into the reception after they flipped the entire room and every small detail was just as I had dreamed. There are so many details that go in to your special day and I cannot recommend this amazing team enough!
