Meet Melany!

Melany is the Office Manager at The Neidhammer, but she’s also so much more! You might find her down in the coffee shop making a crepe or helping out on the events team, always pitching in whenever help is needed. She has worked at The Neidhammer for a year and we couldn’t imagine our team without her!

What is your favorite thing about working at The Neidhammer? My favorite thing is getting to see the joy and happiness during the events (especially weddings!). It makes you feel like you share in a tiny part of their life.

In your opinion, what makes The Neidhammer unique? I think we are unique because we treat every person like family and will do everything we can to make an event as special as the people involved. This is more than just work-it's a passion!

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband by working on our house, playing games and watching movies together. We are about to add a new member to our family, so I'm sure our son will be taking up all of our free time very shortly!

What’s a fun fact about you people might not know? I'm a bit of a Jeopardy fan and my husband is convinced I need to audition. Maybe you'll see me there someday.

Favorite drink from Neidhammer Coffee Co? My favorite is the Lumberjack. How you can go wrong with maple syrup and cinnamon?!

What is your best piece of advice for brides-to-be? Let someone else handle any day-of questions that may arise and enjoy it because it really does go by fast and those are the last things you need to be worried or stressed about! Also, take the chance to escape your reception and spend time, just the two of you, soaking it all in. It's a memory I will forever treasure with my husband.

What has been one of your proudest moments working at The Neidhammer? Since I am mostly behind the scenes, I'm at my proudest when I find those hard-to-get items that a couple requests to send their day over the top, whether that includes contacting wineries in foreign countries for a specific cider or driving around Indy to get what you need. My goal is to do everything I can to make your day beyond your expectations! 

Why should people choose to host their events at The Neidhammer? We're more than just a venue that puts on events. We are a place for celebrations and memories to happen. I especially love that there doesn't have to be any decorations and the space still looks amazing!
