Kindred Spirit Event Planning – Our Story

We work directly with vendors and venues to orchestrate YOUR event, creating everlasting memories.

Kindred Spirit Event Planning is a thriving event planning business owned and operated by the fun and energetic husband and wife team of Melanie and Joel Frank. Melanie is a certified wedding planner.

Each of us has served over 20 years in the U S Navy which gives us the expertise in leadership, management and organization.

Together, we bring a skill set reflecting our ability to understand and interpret our client’s vision, create and execute a design with great attention to detail all while remaining calm under pressure.

We will create and design your event to be:

  • Beautiful and picturesque
  • Special and meaningful
  • Romantic
  • Endearing
  • Memorable interactions with your guests
  • Exciting, fun and most enjoyable


Smooth sailing and the ability to change course on a moment’s notice – Joel’s shipboard Operations and Engineering experience have given him the skills to manage all situations. Joel brings a sense of humor to the team.


Highly creative with innovative ideas, Melanie is a superb organizer. Her experience as a Navy nurse working in emergent and urgent care settings has given her the ability to inspire others and meet your needs head on.
