“There’s nothing more important to me than having a personal connection with my clients and couples. Our partnership allows me to bring your vision to life, you to fully enjoy the process, and the event to unfold effortlessly in a way that is SO you.”
"What we got with Michelle was so much more than logistical support. Even before we had official booked with Michelle, she was enthusiastic, professional, and focused on us and our needs. Throughout the 5+ months we worked together, we always felt like we were her number one priority—whether she was getting extra quotes for us over the winter holidays or giving us her honest opinion to help decide on various options. She even saved the day by driving out 30+ miles to pick up bridal party dresses that got stuck at a local Fedex office! During our reception, so many of our guests came up to comment on how unique and FUN our wedding was compared to many others. Michelle Norwood was a huge part of helping us create a wedding week that was not only well-choreographed but also true to us and enjoyable for our guests. As a plus - we had so much fun on the two weekends we came to town for tastings and planning hanging out with Michelle: her excitement and vivacity make her so much fun to work (and play) with."
With a vision and design in mind we’ll carefully curate a creative team to help bring it to life. With our team in place, we’ll work through and manage all of the logistics–from contracts to timelines and everything in between.
