  • We would not have survived without Michele

    To try and express just how grateful I am to Michele from Distinctively Made Event Planning and Design is a daunting task. I do not think there are enough words to do it justice. My husband and I planned our wedding in a little under 6 months and agreed that we needed help. From the get-go, Michele was one text message or phone call away from answering any question. And trust me, we had a loooot! The best part was that each question would be met with questions of her own to help her (and in the end, us) narrow down exactly what we were looking for. Once that was figured out, boom! We would receive an email with links of people or companies she recommended and had worked with in the past. She was hands on, understanding, personable, and a gift of a person to work with. My husband and I would not have survived without her help. That is not a joke. The day of the wedding, Michele was there from the start to the finish. She handled everything from the timing of us walking down the aisle to the packing up of the gifts and wedding cake. She was everyone’s main point of contact and, because of that, I got to enjoy my wedding and take everything in. I am beyond grateful to Michele. From Wes and I, thank you a thousand times over. Whether you are looking for wedding coordinator or a day of coordinator, Michele and her team are your people. You will not regret it.

    Michael and I could not recommend Michele highly enough! She made our wedding a huge success. We feel that it went perfectly. From the planning stage to the day-of, Michele was always available to help us solve our problems. We can't imagine having done this without her.

  • Amazing!

    I would have been lost without Michele and her team from Distinctively Made Events. She walked me through every step of the way. Offered great advice and suggestions when needed. I always felt at ease after our phone calls. And on the wedding day, she took care of every last detail. She truly allows you the chance to enjoy your own wedding because she's on top of things. Its a sigh of relief knowing that someone has your back and will make sure your wedding is executed the way you envisioned.

  • Worth every penny!

    We had an out of state wedding, and wedding planning across the country is very difficult! It became apparent very early that we would need a coordinator who lived in California. It was worth every penny! Michele and Dan had answers for every question, had incredible attention to detail, and were invaluable to our wedding day. Whether you are getting married in your home town or far away, they are experts in their field! Definitely recommend!!
