Starting out in the fashion industry, Michelle explored much of her creative side pursuing textiles, art and design. Opportunities abroad gave her the well-rounded tools needed to truly hone in on her existing skills. Working under the expertise of many luxury brands and designers throughout Manhattan, Michelle grew an understanding of high quality service as well as the desire to create a vision in which people fall in love with.
Her decision to leave the fashion world behind and explore her interest in events was when Michelle’s career really began to take off. In 2010, Michelle expanded her resume in the opposite direction with an opportunity in catering management and sales. Her boss and mentor, at that time, held over 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry, from The Plaza to The Waldorf. Quickly learning the ins and outs, it wasn’t long before she began to seek out greater challenges. In 2011, Michelle created a name for herself and hasn’t looked back. She believes that the client is always the first priority, and works closely with you caring for, and nurturing your wedding day as if it were her own. She has a very classic viewpoint on wedding design and always marries trend with tradition.
