Sarah is such a talented woman! She knows how to provide direction and get things done with a sweet smile on her face. We are so thankful we had the opportunity to have her as our day of coordinator. The day would not have been near as successful without her!Sent on 06/30/2018

Thanks to Michelle, our reception decorations were beautiful! She managed to pull everything together in a very short timeframe and gave us everything we wanted while staying within our budget! There was no lapse in communication with Michelle and she listened to all our demands. 10/10 would recommend for her services for any occasion!Sent on 03/26/2017

Even if you think you are a pretty good organizer, just release this impulse, and let Michelle do it all for you! I have hosted and organized many events in my life, but Michelle is hands-down over the top the best at this. And it's your big day! As the mother of the bride, it was a blessing and a gift to just enjoy the special day, with Michelle and her team taking care of all the details. From custom flowers on the tables, recommendations on musicians, and sneaky little extras, they were on the job and ready for anything. They even brought the perfect weather (you may have to pay extra for this one!)! Thank you MIchelle.Sent on 03/21/2017

This lady right here, let me tell you gets S*** done! I purchased the most expensive package cause I had no idea where to start or what to do and now looking back I'm surprised she didn't charge more for the pure quality of her service! So well organized, so detail oriented, and she turned our ideas into a dream come true! Our wedding was 180 people, large, magnificent and perfectly attributed to Phantom of The Opera! She ensured every detail we wanted was a reality and if any vendors gave us trouble she put them in line! Also if you want a big wedding but need to save money, this gal is the one you need, she saved us thousands of dollars with ideas I would never have thought of and has connections to some of the best vendors in the state! She's the best decision I ever made while planning my wedding, let her make your dreams come true on your special day!Sent on 09/16/2016

Michelle was amazing. She is so great and easy to work with and really gave me such peace of mind on my wedding day. I had a huge grand wedding and knowing she know what I wanted let me just enjoy my day and not worry about it. And my wedding day was absolutely perfect! I only used her day-of coordination services since I did most other things myself, but it was one of the best decisions I made! Ever bride should have a day of coordinator!!! And if you are looking for someone to help with more planning she is the perfect gal to go to! She can really do everything if you need it! Highly recommend!Sent on 08/25/2015

We were very happy with their services. I was very nervous in the beginning about decorating for the event and had a lot of questions. I emailed Michelle a lot and she answered all of my emails right away. It helped me to not worry as much and I felt like someone was there for me.Sent on 08/17/2014
We had our wedding at our house, so there was a lot of decorating to do and details to be arranged. On the wedding day I was busy getting my hair done and was not around to supervise or do anything. I had planned to do all of the decorating and flowers myself but I had ran out of time. I had a pile of decorations and a laundry room full of buckets of flowers and vases. EOE came in and took over everything and did an AMAZING job! As soon as they got there I did not have to worry about anything! Every once in awhile I would get nervous and ask if they did this or that and they always had. Our wedding was beautifully decorated thanks to them, they even decorated my wedding cake beautifully with flowers.
We did not have a rehearsal dinner and we were getting nervous about the procession, but they guided us through that with no problem.
There was a point a month before the wedding that I wondered if I needed a planner, but now I am SO glad we had EOE and I would recommend them to anyone. The bottom line is, they made me feel like a guest at my own wedding. In the sense that I could sit back and just enjoy myself and they were taking care of directing the affair and making sure everything happened when and as it should. It was well worth the price and makes your wedding day a lot more enjoyable. You can tell Michelle has done a thousand weddings, because she is always calm, as if she has handled it all before, and I believe she has!

Very well organized and did a great job for our wedding. Everything went as planned and on time even though we (wedding couple) made things a bit difficult. Very professional in getting everybody to do what was needed and getting people organized especially during rehearsal. Overall a very good job done by Michelle and her assistants at Essence of Events. Use them, and this is coming from the groom.Sent on 08/28/2014

I have to say at the beginning we were not to convinced about having a wedding planner. Then we realized that it was our day and we didn't want to be running around like crazy the day of our wedding.Sent on 08/03/2014
We started looking and saw that you can have a coordinator for the day. We were trying to save some money. I met Michelle at the wedding expo. I stopped just to ask about there service and she was very nice, professional and helpful.
We set an appointment and from there we realized it was well worth it. They listened to our ideas, our concerns and to everything. They gave us ideas and lots of info.
Everything was perfect the day of the wedding. Nichole did an amazing job. To this day we have a lot of friends and family members who give us a lot of good compliments about our wedding. They also commented on how organized, smooth, beautiful and how wonderful of a job she did.
I highly recommend Michelle and her team. Nichole took a big weight off of our shoulders. She was on top of everything. If you are thinking of having a wedding it is worth it to have a wedding planner. I highly recommend it because you will not regret it a bit. We love these girls and would recommend them to anyone.

The Staff at Essence of Events was absolutely wonderful to work with. Michelle and her crew were able to bring my vision to life after just one meeting. Essence of Events kept in contact with me on a regular basis throughout the planning process and made me feel at ease when I had doubts about what to do. When it came down to the final days I received daily emails with updates (and even some reminders) that helped to keep the whole event on track. In the end my Wedding was a success! And I truly believe that I could not have done it myself.Sent on 04/25/2014
Thank you so much Michelle!
To any bride that is hesitant about the expense of a wedding planner: Hire Michelle and team. They are worth it.

Heather · Married on 10/24/2013
I can not say enough amazing things about Michelle and her assistant. All the things that went off smoothly at our wedding would not have happened without them! Michelle was really great- super helpful, and was even able to help me get a (pretty last minute) hair and makeup appointment! There were times when we were planning our wedding that we thought we did not need a pro, but there's so many things that we didn't even think about, and Michelle was right on it, making sure everything was where it should be, that the vendors were all taken care of, and that everything went off without a hitch! She's a dream, and I would recommend her highly to anyone getting married.Sent on 12/27/2013

Hiring Michelle was one of the best decisions we made during the whole wedding planning process. Having a planner can be expensive, but it was one of the best use of money in our whole wedding.Sent on 09/04/2013
Michelle did all the work and running around for our three day event so that my groom an I could enjoy our wedding rather than survive it.
Essence of Events, LLC's reply:It was a pleasure working with the both of you! Happy to share in your special day and fortunate to have been chosen by both of you. Glad we could help you enjoy your wedding planning process and wedding weekend!

If you want to work with someone who can see your vision and bring it to life then The Essence of Events is the Company you should work with. Every little detail was taken care of which relieved the stress of planning such an important event. My wedding is still being talked about as one of the most beautiful, organized, loving weddings in the family. The decorations, the food, everything was just perfect.Sent on 05/08/2013

I loved my planner, Michelle Culp . She was very helpful and very flexible. She really went above and beyond. She gave a great discount because of distance and to help stay within my budget for the wedding. She stayed in constant contact with me and my mother though out the planning process. She even attended the wonderful event.Sent on 05/14/2013
