100% would recommend!
My daughter got married on New Year’s Eve 2018 in Newport, RI which turned out to be a spectacular weekend of events. I hired Myriam Michel of M&M Elite Events to work with me on the wedding planning, and I was more than satisfied with the service and the results. Even though another of my daughters had gotten married some years ago, I had forgotten how many details and stress are involved in the planning of a wedding. I initially started do the wedding planning by myself, but soon realized that I needed the services of a professional wedding planner to help with all of the myriad details. Myriam turned out to be the unsung hero of the entire weekend!Sent on 01/17/2019
I found Myriam to be very organized and very easy to work with, and her vendors from florists to photographers to lighting designers were all top notch and responsive to my needs and vision and to our budget. Myriam and I had weekly phone calls to check on the progress of the wedding planning and more frequent emails and texts as necessary in the months leading up to the event. Myriam was always available whenever I needed her.
On the day of the wedding, and throughout the wedding weekend, Myriam took care of all of the details from dropping off welcome bags to various hotels, to picking up food platters for the bridal party as they were getting their hair and make-up done, to bringing extra hair dryers and clothes steamers to our guests as needed, to providing babysitters for our grandchildren and various nieces and nephews. At the end of the day, my only concern and that of my entire family on the day of the wedding was to be in the moment and enjoy the entire event which all of us did.
In short, I would highly recommend Myriam and her team at M&M Elite Events and would be more than happy to speak personally with anyone who is considering hiring her for any type of major event.

Ever since we signed on with M&M, we tell every couple we know that the FIRST THING they should do if they get engaged is hire a wedding planner (more specifically, our wedding planner). A number of amenities were made affordable, and therefore feasible, because we hired M&M. The rates we received from vendors, with Myriam as our representative, were far more favorable then the ones we sussed out before hiring her. Not only were the prices great, but the service was also exceptional. Her professionalism and reputation spurred vendors to do an excellent job so that she would one day advocate for them, too.Sent on 10/11/2018
Before we hired Myriam, we had very little idea of how much we should expect to spend, and as a result, we were hesitant to make any firm commitments. We had been engaged a year and a half when we met Myriam, and had decided upon absolutely nothing.
I am especially thankful for Myriam's patience with us as we got used to synthesizing and articulating the details of our dream wedding. Wedding planners have to be gifted arbitrators, since the traditions, wishes, and opinions of two people (and by extension, two families) have to be weighed equally, and ultimately reconciled into something unique, memorable, and beautiful.
In the days leading up to the wedding, my bridesmaids frequently commented (with no small amount of surprise and relief) about how relaxed I was going into the big day. I think that's because I had entrusted my wedding to the right person.
