Devoted To You was built on the principal that wedding planning should be stress free & fun, tradition is what you make of it and that there are absolutely no rules! In a world filled with so many “have to’s” and “supposed to’s”, we strive to focus on what you WANT to do. We love thinking outside of the box to create wedding experience that is a thoughtful and unique expression of each individual couple.

KRISTEN

Kristen was born in the states and then moved overseas when she was two years old and grew up spending time on the beach, living in a village within the jungle and attending missionary boarding school. She moved back to Pittsburgh in high school and been here since. Her full time job as a government worker keeps her super busy but after Melissa brought her on as an assistant coordinator in 2015, she caught on quickly and made such an impression on brides that she has been a lead coordinator with Devoted To You for almost as long as she’s been with us! Kristen brings creativity, attentiveness and organizational skills and stellar time management skills to each wedding she coordinates.

In addition to being a wedding coordinator she is:

A mother to one intelligent and sarcastic teenage boy

A healthy eater and gym enthusiast

A talented bad ass baker

An avid reader of romance novels

STACEY

Stacey grew up just outside the city and went to school for early childhood education. She currently works as a full time elementary school teacher for Pittsburgh Public Schools and then helps Melissa and the team with weddings throughout the summer. She was the first assistant that Melissa added to the Devoted To You team back in 2012 when she helped cater a garden wedding that required extreme flexibility, creativity and expedited work. Instead of panicking, she put her head down and went to work. This ability to be flexible and adaptable to the situation carries over to each wedding that she helps coordinate.

In addition to a wedding coordinator she is:

A mom to two intelligent and creative little boys

A new dog mama to one cute little lab pup

(In my opinion) an ameteur (basically a professional) chef (Her food displays for every New Years Eve party are INCREDIBLE

Aesthetic: Colorful, Creative, Fresh

Favorite Quote: “The most important thing is to enjoy your life- to be happy- t’s all that matters”

KAITLIN

Kaitlin grew up and still lives in a small town just outside of Pittsburgh and went to school for early childhood education and has been teaching full time for the past six years. Her love of children and teaching shines through every day as a full time Kindergarten teacher. She has the biggest heart and the best personality for working with children and has carried all of those qualities along with her creativity and take charge attitude over to wedding coordinating. Kaitlin started with Devoted To You back in 2017 after her then fiancé (now husband) sold Melissa her van (believe it or not!) and has been an important part of the team ever since.

In addition to being a wedding coordinator she is:

A dog mama to two adorable little pups

An amazing kindergarten teacher

A master of anything creative whether it be woodworking, calligraphy or designing things for her home or classroom
