ABOUT MICHELLE ELAINE - Starting out in the fashion industry, Michelle explored much of her creative side pursuing textiles, art and design. Opportunities abroad gave her the well rounded tools needed to truly hone in on her existing skills. Working under the expertise of many luxury brands and designers throughout Manhattan, Michelle grew an understanding of high quality service as well as the desire to create a vision in which people fall in love with. Her decision to leave the fashion world behind and explore her interest in events was when Michelle’s career really began to take off. In 2010, Michelle expanded her resume in the opposite direction with an opportunity in catering management and sales. Her boss and mentor, at that time, held over 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry, from The Plaza to The Waldorf. Quickly learning the ins and outs, it wasn’t long before she began to seek out greater challenges. In 2011, Michelle created a name for herself and hasn’t looked back. She believes that the client is always the first priority, and works closely with you caring for, and nurturing your wedding day as if it were her own. She has a very classic view point on wedding design and always marries trend with tradition.

The most AMAZING wedding planner!

Michelle worked with me throughout my wedding planning to create the most amazing wedding weekend! She has done all three of my sisters weddings and mine; and we couldn't be happier. She is an incredibly hard worker. Michelle was amazing at communicating with me and the vendors throughout wedding planning and up until the wedding was over. The day of the wedding, my husband and I were able to enjoy ourselves because we trusted Michelle and her team. Michelle is punctual, extremely organized, and the sweetest person. We love Michelle!

The best wedding planner, even for recovering perfectionists

We wanted to give our wedding guests a memorable experience, and recognized that finding an experienced and well-rounded full service planner would be crucial to making it a reality. Michelle was everything we could have hoped for as a creative thought partner in our planning process, and so much more. She brought a highly vetted network of vendors to the table, helped us understand different tradeoffs based on our priorities and budget, and was thorough, patient, and fully transparent while advocating on our behalf. Throughout the months leading up to the wedding, Michelle went above and beyond in anticipating issues large and small, staying on top of key decisions and dates, and occasionally playing therapist to our wedding-related anxiety. All the effort was rewarded, as it directly translated into some of our guests’ favorite moments, and thoughtful details that they raved about. On the day-of, her execution (along with her very considerate team!) was stellar as well; our guests, venue, and vendors all shared that it was one of the smoothest and drama-free weddings they had ever been a part of. It was a joy working with Michelle, and if you’re fortunate to have the opportunity to do so as well —do it! Working with Michelle was, without question, the best decision we made for our wedding.

Couldn't have done it without Michelle!

We chose Michelle as our full service wedding planner largely because she only takes on a few weddings a year. We wanted 'true' full service and Michelle delivers that and more. She makes you feel as if you are the only bride she's working with and gives everything 110%. She is super easy to talk to, like you're just hanging out with a friend, and is also a great advocate for you to vendors. Michelle is incredibly organized and juggled the crazy amount of vendors we had, given that we had a tented wedding and had to bring in everything. She made everything go so smoothly leading up to the wedding and on the day itself and her and her team takes care of every little detail. Our wedding day was so magical and everything I had dreamed of in the months of planning it, and there was no way we could have done it without Michelle!
