Michelle was awesome!!! Professional and very responsive.
My fiancé and I hired Michelle as our day of wedding coordinator. I had already booked all my vendors and had a vintage glam theme in mind as far as decor, but had zero idea how to pull it all off on the day of the wedding. Every guest that would be attending was going to be from out of town, we were not able to set up at the venue the night before so I was solely dependent on Michelle to pull off the wedding of our dreams the day of.
I had spent several months gathering every vintage piece from antique shops and thrift stores to set up our table centerpieces and decor throughout the venue. I explained to her that I had SO MUCH STUFF to put together. She seemed pretty confident that it wouldn’t be a problem. All she asked for was a couple of reference pictures on how I wanted the centerpieces to look. After sending those she didn’t ask anymore questions, which made me feel at ease. Michelle also went over a timeline with us. I had no idea how many details went into making the day flow smoothly. She made great suggestions and it was easy to plug in all my information on her online workbook.
The morning of the wedding when we handed over the keys to the uhaul that held all our wedding decor...I was finally able to breathe! Everything was out of my hands and I was able to enjoy some champagne with my bridesmaids while we got ready. Any questions or last minute things I had forgotten were quickly taken care of by her team. She answered my text messages just as fast as I was sending them and the entire day went according to plan without any problems.
When my husband and I showed up to the venue everything was perfect! Our faces lit up at how beautifully everything looked. It was perfect!
I highly suggest hiring a day of coordinator for your big day, it’s a must! And I absolutely, 100%, reccomend you hire Events Like Clockwork.

After our first phone call when I was getting a feel for Michelle, I hung up with a great feeling and so much excitement. I knew I wanted to hire her as our day-of-coordinator. She was quick and professional in her responses, as well as experienced. I was incorporating Chinese and Buddhist aspects into the ceremony, to which she was respectful and encouraging of. She even let me deliver centerpieces to her house so I would not have to worry about bringing them up to my venue location. On our wedding day, she did everything as promised. The only hiccups were due to items being forgotten on my end (tip: don't trust the groomsmen with the little details! haha). Despite that, she was quick on her feet to come up with substitute solutions. I 100% recommend her as your coordinator. :)

I just got married yesterday and Michelle and her team are my first vendor review. She made it all happen! From rehearsal dinner to reception it felt so great to know we were all taken care of. Despite all of our best plans many things went wrong. It was very hot and even when emotions were running high Michelle kept her cool.
We had to change ceremony site because of heat and it was totally not stressful. Sadly my grand DIY greenery got all dried out and yucky. I was so sure it could take the heat but I was wrong. Wouldn’t you know she salvaged the usable pieces, and threw together something beautiful from baby’s breath and roses! Perhaps the greatest task of all was helping my parents stay calm and helping them enjoy the day. I don’t know anyone who can run around in heat all day and still stay perfectly sweet, calming and professional is a hero in my book. This is one wedding expense that was just beyond worth it. Thank you guys!!!!
PS get yourself the rehearsal dinner help too, you’ll thank yourself later.
