Our Story

Why Choose 1000 Stories?

read on

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 I expertly handle the logistics, overseeing the vendors, assisting your guests, and keeping the event running on time.

You have a budget. GREAT! Some people think that hiring a Professional Planner is a luxury, when, in actuality, a planner can save you time, the worry of making mistakes, and get you more value for your money!

Behind the Scenes with Melodi

that's me! your certified wedding and event planner

From the trenches of big-city traffic and the robotic grind of a
corporate J.O.B. to the open spaces of the Pacific Northwest,
I found entrepreneurial freedom in Vancouver, WA. My whole
story can be summed up in a single word: “-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!
Let's not forget Orange-loving!

Why Choose 1000 Stories?

You don’t have to like the color orange, but when you work with me you’ll soon associate it with your event and here’s why...


Orange, is sunny and cheerful! Client care and exceptional guest experiences are important to me.


Being an Event Planner is my full-time job. You friends are going to want to help you but you're going to need someone like me.


Nothing rhymes with orange; every wedding I plan is unique to you and your vision


Little Cuties, butternut squash, and cheddar cheese are my favorite and give me energy to work hard all day long!

Stories from Happy Clients


We used Melodi’s Day of Coordinating package for our wedding which included her assistance 30 days prior to the wedding. Melodi was very thorough in planning and was able to keep me organized and on track! We had a few things go awry with other vendors on the wedding day which she handled like the Pro she is! My only regret is that we didn’t have her plan the whole wedding, it would have been worth every penny!

Meika and Dustin

She took care of everything and made our day special. We did not have to worry about a single thing all because of her. She brought drinks to us, food to us, and made sure all the guest had a great time. Top notch and couldn’t imagine another coordinator.

Breanna & Jared

We are so happy that we chose 1000 Stories Event for our Day of Wedding Coordination! Melodi was absolutely amazing in helping us plan our special day, and making the wedding day go so smoothly. We didn't have to worry about anything on the day of, Melodi made sure of it! She was able to grasp our vision immediately, and was so helpful, courteous, and professional. She is very detail-oriented and able to effectively organize a large group of people on a busy day. We couldn't have done it without her! We highly recommend 1000 Stories Events!!

Really incredible service! Melodi was great and easy to work with, and I can't believe how much value we got for the price! I was feeling very overwhelmed with the whole process, but she made it easy and was very kind when I was overwhelmed and didn't get back to her right away. She was very accommodating with our choice of date, and didn't mind our hectic timeline. The venue was perfect, and everyone has commented on what a fun event it was! Would definitely recommend!
