What people say about Kindred Spirit Events

At Kindred Spirit we ensure 100% accountability and presence on the day of your event, personalized service at a fair and reasonable price, and a positive working relationship which instills confidence and successful follow through.


This is easily the best money anyone could spend on their wedding! Our dream venue had some less than stellar reviews, and because we live so far away, we thought we could use some help. Even if we were married in our own backyard, I would hire them. Shortly before the wedding, Melanie was hurt, and we honestly weren’t that surprised when she showed up on the wedding day with crutches to help out.


Our absolutely beautiful, breath-taking wedding would not have been possible without Kindred Spirit Event Planning , Melanie Frank & Joel Frank! For days and years to come, our very first recommendation to anyone looking for wedding coordinators on their big day, will positively go to them! We have never seen people work as hard, as smoothly and as professionally as they did!

I recently had the pleasure of attending a wedding in Emerald Island by Kindred Spirit Events. Every detail was classy and elegant. From the stunning displays on antique furniture, to the lighting in the tent by a crystal chandelier, everything was done in a unique way.  It was a memorable night for us.


I wanted to thank you for your hard work on Zoe and Ava’s Bat Mitzvah. You did a wonderful job and you were a pleasure to work with. The guests are still talking about it. I really appreciate you being there for us especially at the last minute when panic started to set in. Thanks again for your time, skill at your craft, and incredible attitude.

Melanie and Joel were a pleasure to work with. They both worked hard to plan out all the details ahead of time so that the wedding day flowed seamlessly. They were very responsive to questions and worked as a team with the other wedding vendors. I would definitely recommend Kindred Spirit Events!

When we called Kindred Spirits to help plan our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, they responded immediately and met with us on our schedule. When we met, we were impressed with how they listened to our needs and had lots of great ideas and knowledge of event planning in the Wilmington area. They obviously cared about making our party a special one for our family.


There aren’t even words to describe how absolutely wonderful KS team is. They went over and above from the very first day. Every single detail was covered. I can honestly say that not one time was I stressed or worried prior to the wedding. I could go on and on about how great they are but I’ll just say that hiring them is absolutely something you need to do.

Such a beautiful wedding and so perfectly orchestrated by Melanie and Joel. From the caterer to the music to the decor, every detail was meticulously accounted for. Both the bride and groom were able to relax and revel in their celebration as every detail was attended to with such care. Great day and a great job by Kindred Spirits.
