Sofi Melvin (she/her) | Kansas City Wedding Planner

Hi! I’m Sofi- the owner and lead planner here at Philosofi Celebrations.
I help big-hearted couples plan purposeful weddings through love, wisdom, and personal & intentional details.

Most days you can find me at my computer, working on timelines and design boards or emailing vendors and clients.

When I’m not busy planning weddings for Kansas City couples, you can find me listening to podcasts, feeding my sourdough starter, learning something new, or going on a walk with my little family.

People often refer to me as driven, cheerful, organized, and welcoming. I also get called “weird” a lot by my husband, but I think he’s just boring. 

“Sofi was educated, detailed and full of knowledge when it came to assisting us with our day of planning. She & her colleague made the entire experience smooth and incredible. Would definitely recommend to friends and family!”

- Rae, past bride

“I do about 30 weddings a year, (for the last 20 years) and honestly, this is the most organized and helpful "week-of"/ "day-of" email I've ever received. Thank you!”

-Mindy, Bloom Floral

how to become a philosofi couple

“Sofi did so much, she was in constant communication with vendors, flipped the ceremony space into a reception space, checked in on us throughout the day to see if we needed anything, and so much more! We cannot thank her enough for everything she did. Our wedding day was flawless because of her! I highly recommend Sofi to anyone looking for a kind and professional wedding planner or coordinator!”
