My name is Melinda Sparks I am a wedding coordinator specializing in "day of coordination." I started coordinating events for a small catering company 10 years ago and I loved it. I knew right away I had found my calling. After 4 great years with this company, I knew it was time to go out on my own and really challenge myself to grow and shine. My first wedding went off without a hitch, and it gave me an amazing feeling of accomplishment and pride. Being such a big part of someone’s special day is my true passion. I absolutely relish the idea of helping a bride, groom and their loved ones be enveloped in a magical day filled with love. I take pride in handling every detail and making sure every transition is smooth and seamless. The look on a bride’s face just before she walks down the aisle is full of excitement, wonder, and anticipation; I am lucky to witness it. It is said that "if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life." This could not be truer for me.
"I think almost daily about my marriage to Yulia and have fond memories of how Melinda made that day perfect from all her fine work as the wedding coordinator! She has a winning personality, is attentive to all details, insures that timetables are met and covers all ground while keeping the focus onto the bride and groom as she quietly performs her tasks.
Melinda has extensive experience in her field so that her recommendations are well-founded as the ideal means to conduct a wedding event. She works in coordination to the staff that is employed for a wedding, be it the location host, the musician, the photographer, the cake bakery, the florist or any service provider. I can add that her fee is very attractive and reasonable in consideration to her duties. She genuinely enjoys seeing couples marry so her work does not seem like work!
I am so in love with my wife that I wish I could have marriage ceremonies over and over again each day to her with Melinda handling the events every time. If you want your special day to be smooth as silk, you will have peace-of-mind by retaining Melinda!"
"Working with Melinda was awesome! Everything you want and need in a coordinator and then some. She clearly has a passion for her work and her enthusiasm is infectious!
As a wedding florist, I see all the "behind the scene" stuff and Melinda had everything under control down to the last detail with a smile!
I wish all coordinators were as much of a pleasure and as FUN to work with."
"Melinda was our Day-of-Wedding Coordinator, but it's tough to say "Day-of" because she made herself readily available all throughout the months leading up until our wedding. She is exactly what you would want in a coordinator - assertiveness, energy, and experience.
Throughout all of the chaos and stress that goes on with planning for a wedding, her cheerful personality becomes contagious as she reminds you that this is supposed to be a fun time in your life.
Melinda exceeded our expectations and was the perfect fit for our wedding! She proposed creative ideas, kept our vendors updated, made several trips to the site prior to the big day, and made sure everything went smoothly! And even though it rained the day-of, she quickly adjusted and made everything run seamlessly.
If you're looking for a wedding coordinator, we highly recommend Melinda! We are so happy that we found her and had her be a part of our special day!"

"I don't really know how to describe in words how amazing Melinda is! As an out of town Bride, I needed a LOT of help and Melinda was there every step of the way to help calm me, organize the big day and keep track of every single detail. Not only was she in contact with me but supported my maid of honor and entire bridal party, parents, etc. With a very loud and crazy bridal party and group of family/friends we needed a strong coordinator who I knew had my back 110% - and Mel did exactly that. The day would not have been the same without her and I would highly recommend her to every bride- she is simply amazing!"
