Michelle and MP Creative Events was a God Send

Michelle was everything advertised and more. She was part planner, part creative genius, part organizing Guru, and part therapist. When everything went wrong (my bridesmaids bailed, my fiance's father died, etc.) and I was about to loss my mind from stress, Michelle was a calming voice that kept me on track and talked me off the ledge again and again. When my ideas got crazy, she helped me focus and make choices with big impact. When I had a dream, she helped me create steps to achieve that dream. She made phone calls and recommendations which led to having vendors that where amazing. When I decided I wanted fire pits, she helped track down the best deals in town. Her personality and calming voice helped make the day wonderful. I had so many people come up to me at the wedding and tell me it was the most beautiful, romantic wedding they had ever been at, and I can say in large part that was due to Michelle. I highly recommend you use Michelle for any event, but most importantly for your wedding.

Excellent Event Planner

I highly recommend Michelle Putnam for event planning. She helped us plan our daughter's wedding and was wonderful to work with. We had a very tight timeline and she still was able to find us excellent vendors. She accompanied me to all vendor meetings and stepped in to resolve any concerns or issues that arose. The wedding was definitely better because of her ideas and suggestions.
