MEET MICHELLE SCARZONE

>> I’m Italian! I talk with my hands and get somewhat animated while talking about weddings.

>> I’m a proud mom of 2; both boys, both always hungry.

>> I’m a horse fanatic! I love everything about these amazing animals.

>> I love to laugh and love to make fun of myself daily.

>> I’m grateful that I do what I do for a living; having the opportunity to plan and design such a significant family celebration!

>> My favorite part of a wedding; just before the Bride walks down the aisle there is an unspoken moment when she says without words “Ok, I’m ready” and then she walks to meet her future husband. I love that moment!

the details

My clients are always on the top of my list and I am always there to serve them. I only take a certain number of weddings per year so I can give each couple the time and energy needed to make their day one of a kind, without being distracted or overwhelmed by a volume of other weddings and events.

Each couple is unique and therefore pricing and packages are custom made to order.
