Kind Words From Those Who Have Worked with Michelle...

Michelle could not have been more perfect! She made my wedding day go off without a hitch, answered every concern or question I had and truly is a huge part of how I stayed so calm on my wedding day. She thought of every single detail in advance, and was there to make sure everything was executed on time. I can't say enough good things about her, everyone needs a Michelle on their wedding day!

Of all the wonderful vendors I worked with for my wedding, Michelle was hands down the best! She spent so much time leading up to the wedding understanding my vision and priorities and helped me think through every detail. I felt completely calm the day of because I knew she would make sure everything went smoothly and it did! I'm sure there were things that she took care of that I don't even know about. My family and even guests commented on what a wonderful job she did. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and would absolutely work with her again if planning another event!

I can't say enough about Michelle from BURKE | DESIGN + PLANNING. I hired her for full-service planning of my wedding in Sept. 2017. She was an absolute DREAM. She was so attentive, accessible & professional throughout the entire process keeping me so at ease - aka she was gentle to nudge when I needed to make a decision on something of importance & re-assuring when I couldn't narrow my focus. I blame Pinterest. She had an amazing eye for style, a much needed attention to detail and excelled at managing all vendor relationships asking all the right questions that I didn't even know I should ask. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, although I hope I never need to. ;)

Michelle is absolutely incredible to work with. She is a true professional and also so insightful and creative. She really has an eye and craft for wedding planning. Always so responsive and such a great, calm demeanor. We loved working with Michelle and would highly recommend her (and this review is coming from someone who works in the event planning industry but wanted an expert in wedding planning to help). Thanks again Michelle!

Hiring Michelle to be our daughter's wedding planner was the best decision we could have made.   She was the consummate professional, extremely organized and gracious in her dealings with the wedding party members as well as the contractors.  She was always available to give advice and input into any decisions we had to make.  She kept us organized with our time lines and all the small details that were necessary to make the wedding everything we hoped for.  Most importantly, we were able to thoroughly enjoy the evening, knowing that Michelle would handle any challenges that came up.  We would highly recommend Michelle as an event planner to help you successfully host any occasion.  She's the best!

Michelle is an absolute dream to work with. From making sure that everything was prepared leading up to the wedding, to executing on the big day she did it all with class and style. I would like to share one of the many reasons why Michelle is so great! A few weeks prior to the wedding, I had a vendor almost fall through (insert moment of bridal panic). Within the hour, Michelle provided me with a list of available alternates and suggestions of how to proceed. Needless to say it was such a comfort to know that I had a truly dedicated and caring coordinator during this moment of true bridal panic. I recommend Michelle with the highest regard and was beyond happy with the services she provided.
