I help the ultra-organized, super busy bride, plan with ease, stay on budget, maintain sanity and ensure the day runs as smoothly as possible.
Logistically challenging spaces.
Would like to nix the garter toss, bouquet toss and money dance.
Would like to implement a burlap and baby's breath ban.
Would like to avoid serving rubber wedding chicken at all costs.
If you don't mind bending the rules a bit to infuse your personality into your wedding, we need to talk.

"I waited until three months before my wedding to really look for an event manager/day of coordinator so I was a bit nervous that I wouldn’t find someone. I searched the wedding websites and was blessed to have been referred to Michelle Isabel & Co. When I reached out to her she responded very promptly and explained her services and what we could expect from her. I felt very confident that she was the right fit for us. She sent us a very nice planning kit to help keep our information ready and in one central place. Communication was open and easy with Michelle. From the start of her services to the day of our wedding she made herself available to answer any and all questions and concerns. When we finally met in person, she made sure we went through everything we needed to so that we were on the same page with the planning, the details, and the important information our vendors needed to know. She communicated with my vendors in the weeks leading up to our wedding day to make sure they had all the correct information and the final timeline. She did research on signage for the venue so that I didn’t have to. Michelle is very personable and was praised by my family for taking charge of everything so that I was not stressed or overwhelmed. At the rehearsal she gave great direction to the wedding entourage so everyone knew what to do and where to go. She always seemed calm and collected throughout the wedding day which allowed me to remain relaxed so I could enjoy and take everything in. On the day of our wedding she and her assistant Desiree took care of all the details. I didn’t really have an exact vision of what our reception/gift/dessert/tribute tables were to look like, but they took all the décor I sent over to the reception ballroom and did an incredible job of making everything beautiful without having to ask me where I wanted everything to go. They even set out all 185 place cards into their custom holders for us. The night ran smoothly and on time which assured me they had everything under control. Michelle made sure my husband and I were able to try the hors d’oeuvres from our cocktail hour as most couples don’t get the opportunity to do so. She helped me with my dress changes – from ceremony gown into my reception gown and then with my party dress to dance the night away. One of their responsibilities that I was most impressed by is that they made sure everything that was ours was packed up into our car and nothing left behind at the venue. I definitely recommend Michelle Isabel & Co. for your wedding planning needs. And if we ever want to do this all over again to renew our vows, I know who to call. Thank you Michelle for everything you did to help make our wedding day the best day ever!"

Michelle is absolutely incredible and was so important to my wedding day. It went perfectly, and it was all because of her. We can't thank her enough. She is so friendly and helpful and involved that it took such a burden off of our shoulders. I highly suggest hiring her. She will do a phenomenal job!

"We are so very fortunate to have been referred to Michelle. She was incredibly easy to talk to as we felt we connected from the very first phone conversation. She went above and beyond what her responsibilities were and made us feel comfortable from start to finish. Michelle took care of every single detail, even those details that weren't even on our radar and that could've easily been missed. With the help of her very detailed timeline, Michelle got us from point A to point Z, without skipping a beat. For example, she coordinated the hair & makeup timing for my wife & her bridesmaids, effectively set the stage for our first look with the photographers so that it felt real & organic, handled all the communication with our multiple vendors, assisted with post-reception gifts, cleanup, etc. When my wife & I were indecisive, Michelle helped comfort us with excellent suggestions and very helpful insight. Not only was she meticulous in her planning and execution, but she was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and genuinely cared about us. We owe Michelle a HUGE THANK YOU because we could not have done it without her. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thank you Michelle! - D & B"

"Michelle is an amazing wedding planner! We hired her for her "Day-Of" services. She is so easy to communicate with and so flexible with our schedules when it came to meeting with us! She was organized and focused about our wedding before we even officially hired her, showing up with a binder of information regarding our wedding that I've provided for her when I submitted a consultation. She definitely kept not only myself, but my mother sane the month of the wedding and was always willing to go the extra mile for us! Thank you Michelle for being such a huge part of the best day of our lives!"

"What can I say, this girl rocks!!! She completely exceeded our expectations as far as service and follow through is concerned. She took care of everything with such enthusiasm, and we felt that no stones were left unturned when working with Michelle. She is also a sweetheart! From the guest call she put us at ease and revealed her strong experience without ever feeling overbearing. All of our vendors loved working with her because of her warm personality. Our families couldn't say enough good things about her and actually wondered how we could pull it all off without her. We highly recommend her no matter how big or small your wedding is. Her service is excellent and rates are very reasonable. My now husband and I will never forget Michelle! She's the best!"

"Uninspired to plan our wedding, I was overwhelmed with the complexity of details and vast amount of options. I was indecisive of which themes and details best represented our personality and overwhelmed with the idea of planning a big wedding on my own. We chose to work with Michelle because we needed someone with attention to detail and experience to help us simplify the wedding planning process. We wanted someone who could just KNOW how to deal with the hiccups and decision-making that come up. Working with Michelle is wonderful. She's so sweet and absolutely thoughtful. It shows that she loves and knows the wedding planning industry well because anytime I THOUGHT things were not going as planned (venue or wedding dress issues), Michelle reassured me with a sense of calm and peacefulness that everything will fall into place. It felt like she could handle anything that came up during the planning process in a way where she always kept her cool and that was such a relief."

"I cannot thank Michelle enough for everything she did for us for our wedding. From the moment we met I knew I made the right decision by chosing her as our coordinator. Michelle always figured out what my confusing self wanted and gave even better ideas. She was always there for help on anything we desired. The day of the wedding could've been a total disaster because the florist did not show but Michelle went out of her way and made all my centerpieces for 28 tables in 4 hours. She was my life saver. Because of this and just the great person she is we've become friends. Thank you Michelle for your service and I will surely recommend you to every bride to be."
