Meet Michelle Norwood
Known for her tenacious spirit and warm personality, Michelle Norwood is a sought-after destination wedding planner based in New Orleans. Her bespoke planning and design approach is to start with her clients and uncover their unique stories, backgrounds and allow their story to inspire the celebration.
Born and raised in New Orleans, she love this big little city, #NOLA. When she’s not planning and designing signature spaces, she’s trying out new natural beauty regimes (her clients swear by) and traveling the world. Michelle is a proud mother of an amazing son, who is just like his mother – a lover of tacos, a traveler, a creative heart, and true lover of love! She live a quiet and connected lifestyle, where I enjoy spending time with her son, before he runs off to college.
HOW IT ALL BEGIN
With a background in accounting, Michelle landed a wonderful job. While she toiled away, she became the unofficial event planner for my corporation. As she embraced this new position, she fell in love with work all over again.
Michelle made the decision to leave her accounting days behind, and committed to exploring her interest in events and design. With that, Michelle Norwood Events launched in 2013 in Austin, Texas.
Since then, Michelle has earned a list of accolades from Brides, Martha Stewart, Over The Moon, Vogue and has most recently been Named One Of The Top Planners in the World by Harper’s Bazaar. Michelle is one of the most highly sought after wedding planner and designers in the world and has been lucky enough to work with countless amazing couples and clients.
