We love it when couples step outside of the box! The sentence “I have an idea, but I don’t know if it’s weird” is a common phrase around here.

what makes a philosofi couple

Hey there, I’m Sofi Melvin (she/her), and I love telling a couple's love story through the details of their wedding day! My journey into the world of weddings began with a knack for planning birthday parties, a stint in college recruitment, and juggling my own wedding plans amidst the chaos of a pandemic.

Nothing fills me with joy more than watching two humans get married, surrounded by their loved ones. From easing the stress of wedding planning to truly getting to know my clients on a personal level, I thrive on translating my couples' personalities and love stories into a celebration of their journey so far.

Sending the couple down the aisle. I always have the biggest, dorkiest smile on my face.

moment on the wedding day

I'm a beverage girly, but on wedding days I stick to water and either a molten lava mocha or a campout cold brew of from Dutch Bros.

I'm not one to put a lot of weight into trends, but I love that documentary-style photography is becoming more of a norm.

Who am I aside from a kickass wedding planner?

01

Everything we do, we do out of love. In the industry of love, nothing else matters as much as giving love, celebrating love, and showering our clients and guests with love. This is the philo in Philosofi.

love

02

We value not only the knowledge that we strive to gain every day, but the wise application of that knowledge. This is the Sofi in Philosofi.

wisdom

03

We don’t want to work in a world where weddings are only for some. We love and celebrate all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, and religions - we love and celebrate all humans.

inclusivity

04

 It takes a village to do all things. While our communities may look different, we all need a community to thrive. Your community while wedding planning can be your family, your friends, your 7th grade science teacher, anyone. We want them to be loved and celebrated alongside you in this planning and wedding journey.

community

05

We believe that weddings should be joyful, even with the challenges that may arise. We vow to do our best to make the planning process joyful for you, your partner, and your loved ones. We strive to make the wedding day joyful not only for you and your partner, but for your entire community who is there to support you.

“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!”
