Planning a wedding is a joyous occasion, but is a huge undertaking. Brides and grooms often underestimate how much time, money, and effort it takes to plan and pull off a wedding.
A planner or coordinator can see that all of your plans come to life and stop any mishaps that may arise.
You can hire a professional planner/coordinator to help:
- Answer any questions, give reassurance and provide support
- Help you stay organized
- Manage vendors
- Create a plan for any mishaps that may arise
- Coordinate and manage your wedding day
I’m Michalea Smith, a wedding and event planner, coordinating and planning weddings from Central to South Florida.
I’m mostly known for month of coordination, where I help bring all of the planning you’ve done to bring you the rest of the way down the aisle. I’m also known for creating a wedding plan that is tailored to you as a couple so it fits your vision, needs, wants, desires, and personalities.
Now, it is time to pass your notes, contracts, plans, and stress on to a wedding professional who can take on the details starting a month out from your wedding and carry through to your wedding day to turn your vision into a reality.
I’m that pro. Elegant Events by Michalea brings seven years of event planning experience to your wedding journey.
You’ve done all the planning.
You’ve made all of the decisions.
We help bring your wedding vision to life.
Why Work With Me
I serve busy millennial couples who want and deserve a Pinterest-worthy wedding but don’t have the time, experience or knowledge to make it happen. I also work with couples who are not afraid to color outside the lines and create their own traditions. My goal is to capture the vision of what you want your wedding to be, turn it into a reality, and allow you to focus on everything that is important to you and your future spouse – marriage, life, work, school, friends, and family.
I take a highly personalized approach to planning weddings for my clients. Not only have I planned numerous weddings but I was also a bride myself once. I understand both sides of the planning process, from the inside out, and I use this knowledge and experience to help you create the wedding you desire.
