  • I cannot say enough great things about Michele from Couture Occasions! We never knew how much we needed her until we met her for the first time during our consultation. I was already a few months into planning my destination wedding and I was already overwhelmed. With a full time management job and a family of 4 to balance, planning a destination wedding was just a tremendous amount of stress that I wasn't prepared for and it was starting to effect myself, my husband and my kids. Michele took all of that weight off my shoulders and carried it on hers like a boss! Working with her was an honor. From day one she had our best interest in mind. She took the time to know and understand what we envisioned as our dream wedding first and then she took off and put 110% into everything. As time went on, she NEVER wavered. She helped us renegotiate our existing vendor contracts to ensure we were getting the best value, and helped us procure new vendor contracts at the best cost and quality we wer... Read more

  • As a male, I don't usually leave reviews, but this was exceptional! We celebrated at the location where we first met, 28 years ago...and wanted a casual, yet refined ambiance, as well as my wife included my 80th birthday! Michele provided every infinite detail of both plans, exact to our specifications...as well as gave us many helpful, intelligent and inspirational 'hints' to even better our celebration! Not only were my wife and I astounded by her professionalism, but amazed that she actually listened to our every detail! Our Anniversary Celebration was more than a success...it was an evening as vibrant and sentimental as our wedding, 25 years ago...and one we, and our guests, will never forget! We STILL get compliments from our family and friends!

    Mr. Escoto, Your love of your wife speaks to the person you are and it was our infinite pleasure to take you back to where it all began

  • Working with Michele and her team was such a wonderful experience! She truly is a phenomenal planner, and her service and team is absolutely incredible! I would recommend her and her team to absolutely everyone I know. She took on an estate wedding from complete scratch, including RAW land, and made the most beautiful spectacular wedding that our family and friends are still raving about. Her attention to detail, and professionalism is unparalleled. She helped with stresses that I never could have foreseen, and always stayed true to our vision. She was a shoulder to lean on, and an ear to listen through all of the ups and downs that a wedding of that magnitude brings. She really has become family after this experience, my family and I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you Couture Occasions Events!!

  • Michelle at Couture Occasions did a fabulous job for my late husband’s Celebration of Life event. She took all the worries away from me at this very difficult time and made the venue so personal to everything that represented him. I could not thank her enough. Because she also did my daughters wedding so exceptionally well I had all the confidence in her for this event I know for any future events I will always refer to her as my go to event planner and would recommend her to all my family and friends.

  • Michelle at Couture Occasions was in charge of my fathers Celebration of life. She also did my fabulous wedding in 2018 so naturally we asked her to help at this horrible time in my families life. She handled this event with so much care and attention to detail, It was just how we wanted it and then some. The way she executed our vision was spot on. I would refer Michelle to anyone and for any event! She’s amazing!

    Michelle, There are no words to express our gratitude, respect and admiration for you and your family. That you came to us at your most difficult time of need is truly humbling and we are so happy we could be there for you and share this special moment! Your family is amazing, your father exceptional

  • So this year has been one for the books, and the best decision I made was hiring Michele as our wedding planner. Not only was I busy renovating and selling my house and working on a refinance to another house, but I was also a bridemaid in another wedding and dealt with all the responsibilities that came with that. Throughout all of this, Michele was in the background carefully going over every detail for my wedding, and spent as much time as needed talking me through everything that needed to be decided on and making sure I wasn't too overwhelmed. With every issue that arouse, she was able to think on her feet and make sure they were quickly handled. I can't say enough about how much weight was lifted off of my shoulders knowing that I had a very capable and reliable wedding planner to make executive decisions when they needed to be made yet still ensuring we stayed within our budget and stuck with my vision. Michele and her team are a god-send and I highly-recommend her to anyone loo... Read more

    Dear Jessica, Such a bright and busy anesthesiologist you are and it was truly a blessing to have such lovely, capable woman such as yourself put your full trust in me and my team. So happy when Chris went MIA (taking a last minute boat trip with his groomsmen) and we were able to get the photographer & videographer over to film the festivities - S.T.A.T!! lol Hugs to you both!

  • Michele was AMAZING! She guided us throughout the entire process, paying close attention to every detail. She was patient with changes to our needs, and was very communicative. Her ultimate goal was to ensure that we enjoyed are special day, and she far exceeded our expectations! She was always at an arms distance during the wedding day. Her vision came to life and left us in awe of how incredible everything turned out. We now consider her a great friend, as this experience is one we'll cherish for the rest of our lives. Michele we couldn't have done it without you!!

  • I cannot recommend Michele highly enough. I was shopping around for a day-of wedding planner about a year and a half before my wedding, and Michele made me realize I needed a full planner. She would actually make more money doing just day-of, but she is committed to providing the best experience for her clients. Michele worked in my budget, and I'm quite certain that her contract negotiation skills actually saved me more money than I paid her for her services. She goes above and beyond, driving hours to meet with her clients, cleaning and organizing all inventory prior to the wedding, and she deals with the headache of coordinating vendors. She also has a long list of vendors that she's worked with in the past, and everyone she recommended to me was fantastic. Most importantly, Michele helped me get through the emotional ups and downs of planning a wedding. Weddings are so stressful - more stressful than I could have ever imagined - but she makes it as fun and easy as poss... Read more

    My Adorable Sara, It was a such a joy working with you and Dan! I am so honored you allowed me to be your full planner, you were so much fun to work with and seeing the pure love & happiness on your face as you walked the isle towards Dan will resonate with me forever

  • My wife and I worked closely with Michele and her team at Couture Occasions for our wedding. Michele and her staff were truly fantastic. They had outstanding attention to detail, were totally accommodating and understanding about the “stresses” of a wedding, they kept us on target time-wise, they kept a close eye on the budget, they provided exceptional guidance on important decisions, etc. Throughout the entire planning of our wedding, and since then, my wife and I have commented how lucky we feel to have found Michele and her team. As the groom, I felt particularly grateful for two additional reasons: First, I wanted the wedding to be perfect because I knew how important it was for my fiancée (and me) and Michele made it absolutely as perfect as it could be! Second, I work long hours (as a lawyer) and I needed someone I could trust who would do all the leg work and put in all the time required. Michele did that in spades. Third, I found that I did not need to stress or worry ... Read more

    Jay,Thank you very much for such a great review and its an understatement when I say THE PLEASURE WAS ALL OURS ! You are a wedding planners dream couple and the trust you placed in Couture Occasions Events to design your lavish event is humbling and an honor. My staff and I are very happy to have "taken the stress off" you and I'm pretty sure "leg work" is our middle name :-) My team and I loved every minute planning and executing your big day and we are overjoyed it was "perfect" !! As for me personally, I am truly honored to have served such an amazing couple and thank you for the opportunity

  • When I first got engaged in late 2016, I was going to plan my wedding without a wedding planner but when I started researching venues in my area I realized that I needed help finding one. I reached out to Michele when I thought finding a wedding venue in Sonoma County on a small budget seemed impossible. Michele found a few venues that were willing to work with us, and she came out and visited the locations with me. After visiting Vintner's Inn, I knew it was the venue of my dreams and Michele made it possible for us to have our wedding there. She also found us amazing vendors (Photographer, DJ) that we would not have been able to get without her as well. Michele worked with us for over a year and a half and helped us with so much stuff for the wedding, including narrowing down the style and all the little details (and helping me not go crazy). Everything turned out absolutely beautiful, and the wedding day went by smoothly and seamlessly. Michele and her helpers did such a great job ... Read more

    Jen & Patrick!I am so happy we were able to help you find the perfect Sonoma County 'venue of your dreams' and within in a 'budget that you could afford'! You were a joy to plan with and I especially enjoyed our afternoon cake taste testing & antique oil lamp hunting :-) Your event was so beautiful, both you and Patrick radiant and your guests so enjoyed your gorgeous ceremony and reception....all our hard work and collaboration paid off in spades and is proof you can do amazing things within any budget if you have a good plan & work together ! Wishing you a romantic honeymoon and bright future together

  • Working with Michele was great, she kept me on track and made sure that I did everything I needed to do in a timely manner. She was also able to help me with some of the overwhelming small details of planning a wedding since she has a lot of experience and can envision the finished product. Thanks Michele!

    Jessica & Chris, Thank you so much for the kind words Jessie! You and Chris are beautiful people inside/out and as you are a very busy doctor, I am truly honored with the trust you placed in me to coordinate your big day(s)! I LOVED your grooms last minute (pre ceremony) boat ride w/his posse (great pic's btw) and you were simply shinning as a bride! I look forward to working with you in the future...maybe a baby shower (OH~ I CAN HARDLY WAIT) ?!!

  • Michele was a tremendous help and I don’t know what I would have done without her! I am a type A personality, highly organized and what most would consider a bit of a control freak. As such, my friends would think my handing over an event as important as my wedding highly unlikely, if not impossible. As for my planning I was on a very tight budget, the wedding held on my family’s property (out of town for half my guests) and everything was DIY. There were multiple vendors involved and tho I had a lot of family helpers (as my labor) I didn’t realize how much help I would need, nor all the little details I was missing for my wedding until the final few weeks. Stressed out, at the last minute I realized I needed help so Michele stepped in a few days before my wedding and with her magic, everything came together more beautifully than I had ever could have imagined! Seamlessly and gracefully, she did whatever needed to be done and made sure I was at ease and calm. She will go above a... Read more

    Abbigal, There are no words to express what you and Jessie mean to my staff and I, you are the consummate bride & groom! With so many moving parts to your occasion, not to mention a destination affair for pretty much everyone, you kept your cool under pressure and your energy and never ending smile were contagious. I am so blessed we were asked to assist you & Jessie.....Such a wonderful family.... and the estate....wow! Cant wait to see the photos
