    I couldn't have done it without Michelle!

    I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, but my venue included one in their price. Now that it's over, I can't imagine how I could have done it without Michelle. She caught several issues with the rentals and other things that would have been disastrous without her. She also anticipated my needs, like bringing us water right after the ceremony and making sure we had food. In the midst of all she's doing, she always had a smile on her face and brought a calm presence to the event. The only problem is now I wish I had a Michelle for my everyday life! She makes everything easier.

    Absolutely amazing!

    Michelle was absolutely amazing and we are so lucky to have found her to help with planning, coordination, floral, and design. At every meeting Michelle was very thorough with her questions and took great notes to ensure all of our concerns were met. I am someone who is full of anxiety and Michelle went above and beyond to make me feel relaxed and well-cared for. Having her during the last month before the wedding was such a huge help. She coordinated with all of our vendors for the timeline and we didn’t have to lift a finger. She is very organized, extremely responsive, and shared many useful recommendations in our multiple planning sessions. On our wedding day, she checked in with us frequently to make sure everything was going exactly as planned. Moreover, she is quick on her feet and very resourceful when it comes to problem solving. If something did go wrong, we wouldn’t even know because Michelle handled it and kept an uplifting energy to make our day a celebration of our love. As for the flowers and designs, they were OUT OF THIS WORLD and exceeded our hopes and dreams. Literally, everything she touched was a piece of art– a masterpiece :)

    If you want someone who is welcoming, the perfect mixture of calm but organized, and willing to go above and beyond to make your dreams a reality, then there is no choice but Michelle! Your vendors will thank you!
