Well Organized Team!

Michele was awesome to work with! She really made sure that I had "no worries" the days leading up to my wedding and on my wedding day. She was always available by email or text. Her monthly to do lists were so helpful in keeping me on track with the wedding planning. She left no question unanswered. On my wedding day, I did not have to worry about anything. Michele and her team had a timeline of the whole day. They made sure all the vendors were in place and made sure that everything was going as planned. I would recommend Michele and her team to any bride planning her big day!

We were so over the moon with how our wedding turned out! Even 2 months later, we still hear from our guests about how much fun they had at our wedding and how beautiful and we’ll organized it was! We’ll remember that day for the rest of our lives, so thank you so much for helping make it a dream come true!

Must Have Wedding Planner!

We hired Michele as our wedding planner and she was nothing short of FABULOUS! Her time management and organizational skills are phenomenal. Her team is extremely professional and friendly. Michele helped to book our caterer, venue, floral event designer, hair and makeup artist, bakery for our cake, rehearsal dinner, wedding day hotel room, day of transportation and all the little details. We had a slightly complicated wedding with the ceremony 30 minutes away from the reception and the ceremony starting 4 hours before the reception start time and two outfit changes -- one for the groom prior to the reception and one for me during the reception. Luckily, Michele made sure we had good transportation and even arranged to have a long photo session during the break time. We were even able to have our own private dinner during the cocktail hour, in which she provided us toothpaste and toothbrushes to then go back out and socialize with minty fresh breath. She is SO THOUGHTFUL. Her team even took our personal items that we wanted to display (engagement photos, memorial table items, handmade items ordered from Etsy) and put them on display for us at our wedding. Every month she sent us a list of things upcoming and to-do. She coordinated all meeting times with the vendors which eliminated us having to do hours of research for different vendors and eliminated the massive emails one would get trying to plan a wedding without a planner. She'll make sure all save the dates, invitations and RSVPs are on-time to make it a completely stress free day for you. We absolutely loved that she took a personal interest in us as a couple and even made sure all vendors were on the same page with what we wanted for our wedding day. All the little details people tend to forget for weddings are covered by Michele. She even set up a full day final walkthrough a few weeks prior to the wedding day to ensure every vendor was on the same page and timeline. Her top-notch skills made our day absolutely perfect. With all of her preparation we literally did not have to do or think about one thing on our wedding day except ENJOY THE DAY! She is a definite must-have for your wedding day to ensure you have no worries!
