Michelle is a true testament to the modern bride. Sh can take your vision (or lack thereof) and make it into reality. She knows which questions to ask, fills in all the gaps and is a delight to be around. She helped me take my piecemeal wedding and make it into a cohesive event that friends and family are still talking about. Her resourcefulness is shown throughout the entire process through her helpful suggestions and her ability to take the reigns when needed, when you can't answer "one more damn question" from a vendor. We enjoyed working with her so much and can't imagine having worked with anyone else. She truly exceeded my expectations through her hard work and friendliness. World class!

We planned our wedding remotely from overseas; Qatar to be specific. We got engaged in June 2016 and had been planning for the special day ever since. We booked our wedding venue, florist, caterer, photographer, bridal gowns, and other major vendors on the first 6 months. We did many researches and interviews before we traveled to meet the vendors in Los Angeles on last February.

Upon our visit, we felt the need of having a wedding coordinator to advise and supervise us along the process of putting all the details into production. After many interviews to find the right candidate, we gladly picked Michelle as our wedding coordinator. Her personality, positive attitude and professionalism had made the wedding planning and execution so easy and on time. She made sure all corners are covered, crossed all the Ts and dotted all the Is. I must say, being a high-profile project manager myself, I am impressed on her work ethic. Both of us, family and friends are very pleased with the wedding execution. Wait no more. Booked her immediately!

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!

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!

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.
