  • 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.

    Buffie and family, Thank you so very much for such a lovely review! It brought tears to my eyes to know that we are able to assist with the needs of our clients, friends and family. Megan and Julian are such a lovely couple and deserve the best! We wanted to be sure to make every effort to ensure their special day be a reflection of that! Thank you so very much and let me know when you need another day of great weather, I'll see what I can do. ;) -Michelle Culp Owner
