She keeps her blog audiences in the know by frequently posting insightful articles about the meaning behind Jewish customs.

Freshest trends.Michele finds and invents the most creative, expressive, fun-loving and beautiful event ideas. She’s…well…a little obsessive when it comes to gathering and creating the latest trends, the newest colors, the coolest themes and sharing them with her clients and her online followers.

Dreams. Michele is passionate about bringing dreams to life. From Walt Disney World (“If you can dream it, we can do it!”) to the Modern Jewish Mitzvah & many other signposts along her journey, Michele has dedicated much of her career to making dreams come true.

    Michele was wonderful. She was able to advise me on venues, caterers, and beverages. She made sure the various vendors arrived on time and had everything ready when our guests arrived. She is an expert at event planning and it showed throughout the planning process. Her skill and attention to detail made it a stress-free event for us.

    Michelle enabled me to breathe and enjoy the event with my son, my entire family and friends! Everyone kept asking me how I was so relaxed (because they know I am usually so on top of the details - and I wear it on my sleeve) and I just said because Michelle was taking care of everything. And, she did so in a way that honored our ideas and values. She is the best!

    Modern Jewish Wedding's reply:

    Thank you Traci! The best compliment I can receive is that my client is able to relax and enjoy his/her own event & be in the moment!
