What makes any wedding or event memorable? Moments. When the mother of the bride zips up her daughter’s wedding dress as she’s getting ready, the kiss shared by the newlyweds when no one is looking, the feeling when a guest walks into a reception space that takes their breath away. As lead planner and designer of Michelle Amarillo Event planning, I take care of the logistics, timelines, design, and styling so you never miss a moment.
I find the biggest inspiration and motivation from my own love story. In 2010, I married my husband, Andrew, who also happens to be my seventh grade love! Together, we created a home in Newport News, Virginia, where we love spending quality time with our fur-baby, Burton, and our toddler, Aidan.
During my downtime you can find me at Target, shopping in the home decor or baby section, watching Netflix on the couch with my husband, or decorating our home. I believe that every day must be greeted with a cup (or two!) of coffee. I love traveling to foreign places, eat dessert first, and believe self confidence is a girl’s best accessory. I am a lover of love. I can’t wait to meet you and start working on your once in a lifetime event!
