Highly recommend her services.

Michele came highly recommended by family friends and we echo their sentiments. Michele was an incredible event planner. We hired her to assist with the vendor selection and day of wedding coordinator (except the venue which we contracted prior to hiring her).

Michele was responsive, supportive, and knowledgeable. She had great vendors and day of support. The only regret was that we didn't hire her to find a venue.

The venue had a lot of things go wrong including issues with the reservations, room set up for the main event, and parking for our guests. From a guest's perspective and as a bride, you wouldn't have known that anything went wrong. Michele was diligently taking care of one event crisis after another.

The rooms looked beautiful, and the wedding went smoothly.

If you are to go with Michele, my suggestion would be to hire her for the entire event because you save so much time, money, and energy in the long run.

I highly recommend her services.

Flawless, easy, fun

My advice to anyone planning a wedding is to hire Michele Hodges! She is the absolute best in the business and a dream to work with. She has impeccable taste and a deep knowledge of the industry and is incredibly organized, professional, and warm. Unlike other wedding planners I interviewed who only plan the wedding day, she helped plan the entire wedding weekend (welcome party, rehearsal dinner, wedding, and farewell brunch) for the same price! Not only did she execute a flawless wedding weekend, but she single-handedly kept my relationship with my mom intact throughout the sometimes stressful planning process. I cannot say enough great things about her.

The most amazing day of our life!

Michele was an absolute dream to have as our wedding planner. The second we met her we knew she was incredible. Michele seamlessly planned the most amazing wedding I could have ever dreamed of! She truly allowed for my mom and I to enjoy every second of the planning process. She took care of everything, and brought us in on anything we wanted to be a part of. She made the experience so special for my husband and I, and my family. She planned our rehearsal, wedding, and brunch, and WOW every event was amazing. I couldn't recommend her any more to any bride or family looking to have a wonderful experience. Thank you so much, Michele!

Michele is AMAZING to work with. We usually have four hours to get an entire bridal party ready so for us to have a party that follows the timeline is essential. Every time we have done a wedding with her, my entire team goes on and on about how on time the wedding is. Michelle is very meticulous. She plans out all the last minute details and thinks of various circumstances to ensure that the wedding starts on time.

My words could not adequately describe my experiences working with Michele and her associates on so many wonderful events – big and small. When I think of Michele, I immediately remember her ability to stay calm, friendly, and professional even when an event can spring some unforeseen challenges. For example, we worked an elegant D.C. wedding together during the famous blizzard a couple of years back – the clients, the guests and the vendors all looked to her for leadership in navigating the blizzard challenge – the result was one of the most memorable weddings I have ever videotaped. As a videography vendor, I couldn't think of a more pleasant and competent event planner to work with.
