The Story of a 1000 Stories

You know how most stories end with “happily ever after”?

For a lot of people, their wedding day commemorates the beginning of their happily ever after. And like any great story, your big day is going to lead to 1000 other stories. Or more. Who’s counting?

I invite you to tell me your story, and together we can write your new beginning. Enjoy the party as your vision comes to life while my experience leads event coordination, overseeing the vendors, and guiding the guests. All while staying within your budget!  

Serving the greater Portland metro area and Clark County (or any destination of your choosing), I offer several options for planning and all of them include my attendance for your event. Each wedding, party, fundraiser, and celebration is unique like the color orange (more on that later); if you need anything that’s not listed here, I invite you to ask!

And consultations are always free! Reach out! Tell me your story, and let’s get planning…

Behind the Scenes: Melodi (that’s me -- your event planner!) and the Orange Effect

From the trenches of LA traffic and the robotic grind of a corporate J.O.B. to the open spaces of Vancouver, WA and entrepreneurial freedom, I bring you one word to underline my whole story: “-loving.”

Fun-loving. Dog-loving. Nature-loving. Vegetable-loving. Yoga-loving. Wedding-loving. Photography-loving. Art-loving. Travel-loving. Anything-loving! I love life and live each chapter to the fullest!

To top it all off, orange is my signature color. You don’t have to like the color orange, but you’ll want the Orange Effect. Here’s why:

*Nothing rhymes with orange; it’s unique; every wedding I plan is unique to your wishes.
*Orange, like me, is bright and cheerful! Just what you need to keep your day going to plan…  
… Because orange is energized and also healthy. Think Little Cuties clementines, butternut squash, and cheddar cheese.
*Orange is bold! I’m in this role 100% as a full-time planner based in downtown Vancouver, WA.


In short,  a bright pop of orange to lift you up and be available to you when you need me! AKA: the Orange Effect.
