Your love, your way

crafting a wedding that's all about you and yours

You should spend your engagement period connecting with your partner, celebrating with your friends and family, and continuing to work on your passion projects. Having a kickass Kansas City wedding planner in your corner allows you to do all of that while also having a fun, beautiful, seamless wedding. From wedding management (here's why we don't call it day-of-coordination) to full-service planning, we can help every step of the way.

“ was obvious Sofi had a clear idea of what we wanted and she hit the ground running. I cannot even fathom what our wedding would've been like without her. Every detail was carefully curated. She stuck to our budget and honestly made everything so enjoyable with her bubbly, fun, and kind personality. She felt like (and I'd like to think was!) a close friend throughout the course of the year that we planned our wedding, and then the day of the wedding came and she was all business (I mean that in the most respectful and awe-inspiring way). Her and her team could not have made the day easier or more stress-free for us. She was on top of everything and her attention never wavered from doing everything she could to make it the best day ever for us. There was even a small detail that was wrong with our drink menu at the bar; we had incorporated our dogs' names and a sketch of them, and the wrong sketch had been placed next to the wrong dog name. We wouldn't have been upset in the slightest, and yet Sofi made a call and had the corrected drink menu on its way within seriously only 20 minutes! Our special day just would not have been the same without Sofi's calm demeanor, attention to detail, and unique eye for design.”

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 worth it in every way. She's incredibly responsive, knowledgeable about executing a wedding in KC, and had referrals for bakers, event decor, and other vendors we inquired about. She not only accepts same-sex couples as clients but projects a deep, personal commitment to the belief that our love is worth celebrating. Most importantly, she is an incredibly warm, calming presence during what can be a very stressful period. I could tell she genuinely cared about my well-being and wanted the best possible wedding for me and my partner. We are so thankful we found Sofi and would recommend her to others without hesitation."

“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!”
