Mellissa Brady - Private Events Director of The Tower Club

Mellissa has spent over 13 years in the hospitality industry.  Over the past 10 years, she has spent her career with Marriott International working at multiple properties in the Metro DC area.

Mellissa’s current role as the Private Event Director, Social Occasions, is to help provide a memorable experience to each guest that hosts an event at Tower Club.

She understands the importance of the partnering with each couple to ensure their unique vision is accomplished.  There are so many magical moments that take place during a wedding from the first look to “I Do,” but Mellissa’s favorite part is watching the couple’s first dance.
