  • Michelle was EVERYTHING!!!!!!!! She made my wedding perfect. We were on time to the minute with the schedule we created before the wedding. If anything went wrong, I don’t know about it, Bc everything went perfect! She was so professional and timely. She went above and beyond to make my wedding day stress free for me. No amount of money can give you that! She was so kind to all our my guests and has such a calming presence. She calmed me and I didn’t have to worry about one detail. She was on top of it with all of my vendors and called the week before to make sure everything was set. I can’t thank her enough. She was incredible. I would rate her a 12/10!! Highly recommend her to anyone who doesn’t want to have to worry about ANYTHING on the best day of your life.

  • Michelle was essential to making the day run smoothly. During the planning phase she was incredibly prompt and responsive and reassuring. I looked to her for sound advice with the layout for the reception, and she handled all the little details I didn't think of for our ceremony. There were a number of moving parts with our event, and I did not have to worry about any of them. I was able to enjoy my day and not think about how things needed to come together. She was there every step of the way through the evening making sure I had what I needed. Thank you, Michelle! It was so great working with you!

  • My fiance and I loved working with Michelle and know that our wedding wouldn't have been as perfect without all of her hard work. We live in Texas and she was instrumental in executing our dream wedding in Santa Barbara. She was very organized and on top of everything. Throughout our planning process we touched base a few times and our wedding day was so smooth and we didn't have to think about the timeline or the details. During the wedding and reception she helped us find time to eat/enjoy the food, drink water and made sure that any issues that popped up were fully handled. If anything did happen, we didn't even know it occurred. At the end of the night, her flower donation service was also a life saver for us! We didn't have the ability to drive to the nursing home to donate the flowers ourselves and having Michelle donate it on our behalf made it effortless.

  • Michelle Spina is wonderful! She is very professional. She proactively managed the process and anticipated things in advance. I have been involved in many events in the past, but I would say that Michelle is the best event planner I have ever worked with. I would gladly work with her again.

  • We really liked all of our vendors but we can say, without doubt, that Michelle was the best choice we made. From the moment we met her we felt like we "clicked" with her. We enjoyed her no-nonsense attitude and her honest answers to all 800,000 questions we asked. She really put us at ease and kept things running smoothly. She helped us have the wedding we wanted as opposed to trying to steer us toward a bunch of traditional things we were "expected to do." Michelle had so many great ideas from floral to dessert and she even helped us out by picking up our dessert and working with one of our moms to get our reception venue set up earlier in the day. She worked well with all of our vendors. Our guests and especially our parents were full of compliments for her. They were SO impressed and so were we. Thanks, Michelle, for making our day flawless!

  • Michelle is the most amazing coordinator. You will have absolutely NO regrets in working with her. She is extremely responsive, listens to your concerns and makes things happen on the sideline. We had weird weather roll through our event multiple different times- Michelle and her assistant moved tables in and out of our venue on countless occasions. She appears calm and collected whereas other coordinators we have experienced run around and look frazzled the entire event. We were so thankful to have Michelle on our team and I am confident our wedding would not have gone as smoothly without her.

  • We really loved working with Michelle because she brings a high level of professionalism and attention to detail. She was also very responsive and worked with us immediately to change our timeline when the weather became an issue. Day of I didn't have to worry about set up or breakdown. She went above and beyond and I highly recommend her!

  • I have to say I was so unsure and scared about hiring a wedding coordinator but finding Michelle was one of the best decisions I made during the entire process. She was patient with me during planning and generous with her time when my Husband and I would ask to meet with her. I was a mostly DIY bride and Michelle was incredible in working with our site and all other vendors in coordination, setup of all decorations and florals, as well as any other detail that came up that day. I would never have thought that our wedding day would go perfectly but honestly, Michelle made that happen and I am so grateful to her. The value of her service in the market is extremely high - we cannot thank her enough!

  • We are so happy we went with Michelle as our day-of coordinator. After speaking with many different coordinators, she was the one we resonated with, just super friendly and down to earth. She was always happy to speak with us in the lead up to wedding week; she helped us plan out our timeline and answered all the random questions that we had. And she was just fantastic on the wedding day. She did so much in making sure the venue was set up just how we wanted, and it looked fantastic. She even went the day before the ceremony and found a great way to present our guest book. She was present throughout the ceremony and reception making sure things were running smoothly. And then afterwards she helped clean up and take everything we brought back to our home. We are super happy we worked with Michelle and can't recommend her highly enough, she made our big day run like clockwork.

  • I attended a wedding that was coordinated by Michelle. I actually asked one of the staff members the name of her company, just so that I could leave a review. Michelle and her staff were impeccable! They did not miss a beat, and I could not have been more impressed. I truly believe the wedding ran as smoothly as it did because of Michelle.

  • Michelle and her team went above and beyond expectations. Michelle was super flexible and helpful. We hired her for day of coordination of our wedding but she was available at any time for any questions during the few months before. She met us at the venue and helped to pull all of our ideas and visions together to help make them a reality, which really put us at ease. She came and picked up all of the decor a few days before the wedding which was one less thing we had to worry about. She communicated with all of our other vendors and made sure everyone was on the same page. On the day of the wedding, Michelle and her team truly made miracles happen. She pulled everything together and turned our venue into everything we imagined it would be and so much more. Hiring Michelle as our day of coordinator was one of the best decisions we made and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a coordinator for their wedding.

  • After our first phone call when I was getting a feel for Michelle, I hung up with a great feeling and so much excitement. I knew I wanted to hire her as our day-of-coordinator. She was quick and professional in her responses, as well as experienced. I was incorporating Chinese and Buddhist aspects into the ceremony, to which she was respectful and encouraging of. She even let me deliver centerpieces to her house so I would not have to worry about bringing them up to my venue location. On our wedding day, she did everything as promised. The only hiccups were due to items being forgotten on my end (tip: don't trust the groomsmen with the little details! haha). Despite that, she was quick on her feet to come up with substitute solutions. I 100% recommend her as your coordinator. :)

  • I just got married yesterday and Michelle and her team are my first vendor review. She made it all happen! From rehearsal dinner to reception it felt so great to know we were all taken care of. Despite all of our best plans many things went wrong. It was very hot and even when emotions were running high Michelle kept her cool. We had to change ceremony site because of heat and it was totally not stressful. Sadly my grand DIY greenery got all dried out and yucky. I was so sure it could take the heat but I was wrong. Wouldn’t you know she salvaged the usable pieces, and threw together something beautiful from baby’s breath and roses! Perhaps the greatest task of all was helping my parents stay calm and helping them enjoy the day. I don’t know anyone who can run around in heat all day and still stay perfectly sweet, calming and professional is a hero in my book. This is one wedding expense that was just beyond worth it. Thank you guys!!!! PS get yourself the rehearsal dinner ... Read more

  • If your getting married in Santa Barbara you NEED Michelle. My fiancé thought we could do it all ourselves but once we layed out everything that needed to be done the day of, there was no way. We hired Michelle for the day of coordinating but she was pretty much there for the whole process. She sat in on our vendor meeting and conference calls and even gave us tips to save on reception costs. On the day of the wedding she took care of EVERY LITTLE DETAIL!! I didn’t have to worry about a thing. She kept in contact with all the vendors. Made sure the reception venue was looked fantastic when we arrived. She even did some floral arrangeing! At the ceremony she handled everything from the florist, musicians and chairs vendors. My new hubby and I can’t Thank Michelle enough for everything she did for us that day!!! Seriously, she was the best decision we made for our wedding day!!! Thank you SOO much Michelle!!!

  • I absolutely do not recommend Michelle for any event coordination. “Events Like Clockwork” - truly, anything BUT. We hired Michelle for our wedding last June. It’s taken me almost a year to write this because I’ve been dreading sitting down and rehashing all the negatives of our wedding day. We hired Michelle to help on our wedding day because we had all of the ideas and pieces in place, just needed someone to help coordinate and execute them on the big day. Sadly, that did not happen. We ended up cleaning up the venue until 1am on our wedding night. We found Michelle on a reputable wedding website and she had great reviews. We met with her in person to review our plans twice before the wedding. We made our needs and expectations very clear. We told her that our family was very helpful and could be available on the day to help set up things. She consistently told us that wouldn’t be necessary. She told us that all of the guests should be able to enjoy themselves and ... Read more

    Hi Julia, I hope you and your family are doing well, and I am sorry that after nearly a year that you feel this way about my services. A couple of things that I would like to defend, as I am a small business owner and take so much pride in my work. --It now states in my contract that all agreed upon items between myself and the couple must be listed in the Wedding Workbook so that all details are clear and transparent. There were requests that happened the day of the wedding that I wasn't aware of, such as being responsible for cooking desserts. This is not something I would've agreed to. Many of the instances when I wasn't available was because I was in the kitchen making sure your desserts were not burning in the oven. --I did in fact cut the cake and made sure it was set out on the dessert table on time. --All traditional items (ceremony, dinner, dessert, first dance) were on time, as I coordinated with the DJ throughout the night to confirm that. --Caterers are typically the ones that would ensure food and drinks were stocked, alcohol was stocked, as well as cut the cake. This is why I recommend to all my clients that professional caterers and bartenders should be hired as opposed to doing these tasks on your own. --I met with you and your mom multiple times before the wedding, which is beyond the normal scope of my contract, to make sure we were in constant contact. --I stayed at your venue until 2am to ensure that all tables and chairs were moved out of the venue so that you would get your deposit back. Additionally, because you were upset, I refunded you in full for your wedding. I volunteered my time for free for 17 hours the day of your wedding, as well as 6 hours the day before your wedding, and the meetings prior to your wedding. Thank you for your feedback, and I appreciate your review. Best wishes to you and your family.
