  • Hiring Events by Elle was hands down the best service we hired for our wedding. It was worth every penny! With each meeting before the wedding I felt better and better about the Big Day. In addition to having all my wedding dreams come alive in front of my eyes.. Our parents, my husband and I were able to be guests at our own wedding and enjoy ourselves. Best day ever thanks to my Elle Girl, Karoline!!

  • We were luckily paired up with the brilliant Michelle Layman from Events by Elle for our daughter's wedding. Michelle is innovative, takes the initiative and listens to what you want and then make suggestions based on her years of experience and expertise. Michelle is a true professional, and I discovered it's a necessity to have one so you can enjoy the day too. You really need one for such a once in a lifetime memory making day. Working with vendors, guests, the wedding party, weather and stressed parents are all her forte. She handles them all with good humor, calmness and confidence. We had an outdoor tented reception with guests that would be driven in to the location in open area wagons. The weather sounded awful, but Michelle didn't let it phase her. She had alternatives and options if we would have needed them. She always kept her wonderful, calm and positive demeanor, which definitely came in handy! Michelle made it a truly wonderful experience for all of us, and we now cons... Read more

  • Being the stereotypical dude I told my fiancé from day one we didn’t need a planner. After numerous disagreements and being lost in all the wedding questions we decided to contact Michelle and it was the best decision we made. Michelle was extremely professional and helped take the pressure off Annie so she could enjoy the process. Michelle was available to answer questions at all hours and always gave us her honest opinion and not just the easiest answer. Thank you Michelle for everything you did!

  • There’s a lot of decisions that go into a wedding, but none are more important than choosing the right wedding planner. Our daughter chose Michelle Layman of Events by Elle. From the minute we met Michelle we knew we were in great hands. The wedding reception was outside under a tent with a forecast of severe weather. Nothing phased her! She was a calming influence that had it all under control. Several times she had to move the escort board wall inside, only to move it back outside when the weather suddenly cleared right before the reception. Michelle was really great to work with all the vendors and she knew the right questions to ask and expect from them. She exceeded every expectation - a true professional!

  • Jonnelle made everything so easy from start to finish. We really didn't have anything to worry about throughout the entire process, especially during our wedding weekend. All of our guests flew in for the weekend and we were able to just relax and spend time with friends and family.

  • We first met Jonelle when she helped with my sister-in-laws wedding. Jonelle jumped in with 1 month to go and that wedding went amazing. So of course we had to have her for our wedding. When we first met with Jonelle, she had a list of when different things needed to be done and she helped us stay on track for over a year. The day of went amazing. I mentioned that the flower for my jacket was wrong and she made a phone call and a replacement was delivered in 15 minutes. She had everything so well organized that even with some hiccups, the day of went so smoothly that we barely even noticed. Highly recommend.

  • Jonnelle/Events by Elle was the BEST money I spent for my entire wedding! Jonnelle kept me calm throughout the entire planning process. I always knew that I could rely on her to give me good advice or answer any questions I had. She helped me choose all of my vendors, communicate with them, make sure everything was on schedule, and turn my wedding vision into reality. I would not have had the wedding of my dreams without Events by Elle. Our day was absolutely magical and stress free! I recommend everyone hire Events by Elle....It will be the best money you spend on your wedding!

  • I will never be able to thank the Elle Girls enough for helping my husband and I plan the most perfect wedding! We hired them six months before our wedding, after initially trying to do the planning ourselves. This was the best decision we could have made throughout the whole planning process! Jonnelle took all the stress out of planning, helped us select the best vendors, and brought our vision to life. Our wedding was gorgeous! Thank you Elle Girls! We will recommend you over and over again!

  • We were so happy using Events by Elle. Michelle is an extremely competent and efficient planner whose calming influence allowed us all to truly relax and enjoy the wedding. She knows the vendors, the venues, the protocols, but most importantly, she knows what makes for a beautiful wedding! I highly recommend her and her staff.

  • Events by Elle made my wedding vision come to life. I really could have not gotten through my wedding weekend without them. I hired Events by Elle for a three day event. We had a Welcome Reception on Friday, Wedding on Saturday and Sunday we had a brunch. I wanted our wedding to feel like an experience. The Elle girls were put to the test when I shared my "dream big" vision. They constantly worked with vendors in KC to perfect our weekend. No matter what time of day it was Michelle (my wedding planner) was there for me. She has so much experience and I am so thankful for her input. I cannot say enough amazing things about Events by Elle. During our wedding weekend I did not have to worry about a thing and I truly got to enjoy every moment. Not only did I not have to worry about a thing, my bridal party and family did not have to either. Events by Elle took care of it all. To me this was important, because not only did myself and my husband want to enjoy our weekend we wanted our love... Read more

  • Michelle is Amazing! We were so grateful to have Michelle help us plan our dream wedding from start to finish! We met with multiple even planners after we got engaged but one thing that kept sticking out to me about Michelle was that there really were no boundaries, no matter what questions I had, how many times I needed to meet with her, or emails/phone calls back and forth she was there through it all, which was exactly what I was looking for in a wedding planner. Michelle also asked us questions to get to know us as a couple and not trying to plan right away "what if" situations... She was extremely helpful with each decision that was made throughout our planning journey. Michelle knew what I wanted more than I was even able to describe out loud. She took my random, unorganized thoughts and ideas and turned them into the perfect wedding! We had initially picked out a venue before we met Michelle, but with Michelle's professional opinions and guidance we ended up changing our venue, ... Read more

  • Deciding to work with Michelle at Events by Elle was the best thing I could have done for my wedding!! I loved that no matter what wild idea I came with, she made it work!!! From the moment we spoke, I knew I had found the perfect chick to work with. She made everything so easy and above all, fun. Having the wedding two hours away from KC made things a little tricky, but I knew I could always reach out and get a response immediately from Michelle. Having someone truly get your vibe and vision for your big day was such a wonderful and exiting feeling. And seeing her out the magic touch the day of- all while keeping my crazy group and myself calm and organized- just further proved that she was the best decision we could have made to make our day absolutely perfect. I am sooooo thankful for her guidance and creativity in making everything so perfect!!! I am so so so sad it’s over because that means less Michelle in my life!! #TeamMichelleForEver

  • When it came time to plan our wedding, my now husband and I met with several different coordinators before choosing to work with EbyE. I was already feeling overwhelmed, but my husband broke it down very simply by saying, "We liked them the best." They were the only ones who started our meeting by asking, "So tell us about yourselves, how did you meet?" We immediately liked and trusted them more than the others because they wanted to get to know us before they helped us plan our dream wedding. A wedding is supposed to be personal and about each individual couple and with within minutes, we could tell that was a huge priority to EbyE. Karoline was our lead coordinator and we adored her! Not only was she available to us whenever we needed something or were feeling overwhelmed, but she worked through all our ideas to ensure that our dream wedding came to life. The details are very important to me and by proxy my husband, Jake, and Karoline was constantly working to come up with creative ... Read more
