    The best ever!

    Michelle will go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect! She kept in constant contact even though we had only hired her for the day of. I am so thankful for her professionalism and eagerness to help with everything and anything. It was the best weekend ever! Michelle, you are a gem! I couldn't have done it all without you. Thank you for everything!

    Genuinely invested in our dream day

    I’ve told people many times that hiring Michelle was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I knew I wanted a “day of coordinator” but most agreed to limited contact within only a month of the wedding. Michelle immediately set herself apart by getting to know our story and introducing the way she works with couples. I was emailing her with questions months out and she always offered timely advice. When it came to executing our vision, she made our wedding look even more beautiful than I pictured. She had every detail nailed down and creatively placed all my decor with minimal direction from me. She handled surprises and changes day of beautifully. She honestly made the experience so much easier to enjoy, instead of stress over. Do NOT skip hiring a planner, but do yourself a favor and hire Michelle!

    Magnolia and Grace Events's reply:

    Thank you so much for your sweet words, Claire! You two were a total dream to work! Wishing you both endless happiness and adventures over the years! XO

    Michelle is a Goddess

    Michelle made our day flawless. Even with high rain chances, she kept me clam and made sure everything went perfectly. She even thought to bring cute clear umbrellas for us to take photos with! Unlike other "Day of" event planners I talked to, Michelle helped us with anything and everything we needed leading up to the event. She answered our emails quickly, helped me think about the stuff I forgot, and stayed in communication with us from about 6 months out. By the time the wedding arrived I already felt like I had a friend helping get everything organized. She really is amazing and I would 100% recommend her to anyone and everyone.

    Magnolia and Grace Events's reply:

    Thank you so much, Jordan! Your wedding will always be a favorite - rain and all ;) So much love to you and Mick!
