Excellent Customized Service  

Choosing Michelle Durpetti and her team was without a doubt the best decision we made while planning our wedding. Not only are they professional, organized and very responsive, they are genuinely excited about your unique day and what makes your wedding special. Their vendor recommendations where spot on and their advice and support throughout the process was indispensable. Michelle has very creative ideas and a willingness to help develop as much of the vision as you want. Night of, I flat out wouldn’t have survived without them there. Neither I nor any family member or guest had to think about a single detail – they saw to everything.
