Wedding Planner

My future daughter in-law was in tears when her wedding planner quit the company 2 weeks before the wedding! Along came Michelle from Distinctively Made Event Planning to the rescue!! She truly is everything you would hope a wedding planner would be. Her attention to details and management made it a truly magical wedding! Thank you!!

Super helpful!

We hired Michelle to be our day of coordinator for our wedding at the Madonna Inn. Her and her husband were so important in making sure the day went smoothly, while allowing us to fully enjoy the day because we knew they had it taken care of. Michelle hired additional people to help set up our reception space in the short 1.5 hour time slot allotted for setup. She found a way to make sure our room was stocked with in-n-out burgers for the after party. She convinced the venue to let us dance for an extra half hour, and much more. We are so glad we had her there to make sure everything went well behind the scenes.

Amazing Vendor Partner

I have had the pleasure with working with Michele on multiple events. As a catering event planner and supervisor its amazing working with a planner that you can trust and who really understands the business from her side as well as the food and beverage side. Michele is always ready to jump in and help and her husband is a great addition to her team on event day, always trying to assist and offer a helping hand. Being very organized and direct with her clients are some of her greatest qualities as a planner, and makes working with her a breeze. I would refer Michele to any of my future brides that want a wedding planner who takes control and helps plan the best event for that clients' specific needs. These truly are distinctively made events!
