On the day of, she can maintain her presence in the venue setting up, while making sure the bride is stress free and relaxing before the ceremony begins. All that, and she is a whiz at planning and going through timelines during the process before your Big Day!

Jeff and Michelle met in the busy city of London, but when it is destined to be, you will find the one for you.


After one meeting with them, we knew the wedding would come together like magic, and that is exactly what happened.
