Our Manifesto

Who Do You Work Best With?

Our couples place an emphasis on the guest experience, infusing personalized and memorable details, amazing food and beverage offerings and exceptional quality in every aspect to create an unforgettable and beautifully orchestrated wedding day. We work best with the couples who desire a "planning partnership" that results in a wedding reflecting your unique personalities and style with trust on both sides being the most important aspect of our relationship.  After our in-depth planning consultation and outlining of a budget, we handle all of the legwork for you with a focus on meaningful design, that enhances the experience as it is beautiful and access to best professionals to achieve each unique vision.  

Quality is most important and we work with creative partners who share our same standards of service and professionalism.  We will not copy what is seen on Pinterest, so we encourage our couples to work closely with us to dive deep into what is truly important and to allow us to guide you along the planning process to make it truly your own.

We don't "take over" your wedding so you lose your voice but let our experience and expertise work for your benefit every step of the way. Those who want that perfect combination of personalized approach and planning partnership are drawn to Michelle Garibay Events and the fact that we “get” today’s busy couples.

What Is Your Approach?

We firmly believe that your wedding day should unfold as beautifully as your love story - and that starts with an experienced game plan and seasoned expertise.

The way in which we accomplish that focuses on 3 key elements that are the foundation for our standard of service to you.

  • We believe in fostering a strong visual presence during the design and planning process, which we feel is extremely important for peace of mind and collaboration. This can be accomplished through design concepts, renderings, photos and fabric samples to assist in engaging your senses and truly give you an accurate overview of what your wedding will look like.

  • Professionalism and responsiveness are repeated themes in comments and testimonials by our past and current clients time and again. Our communications are prompt and timely, we offer creative solutions and provide thought leadership, we are organized and detailed throughout the planning process and that the wedding day ran smoothly, was executed flawlessly and on time, regardless of any minor challenges that may have come up. Lastly, we do not limit ourselves to only a small circle of go-to vendors, however, we are very selective on who we align ourselves with.

  • We understand this is YOUR wedding – your style, your personalities and your budget are all important factors in our recommendations to you. We meticulously handpick each creative partner we recommend for your wedding and only work with the most reputable professionals who will provide the highest level of service and quality of work. We also encourage you to to be as hands-on in the selection and planning process as you are able, but we take care of all of the details and legwork for you.

Will I Lose Control Of My Wedding?

Absolutely not! Don’t mistake our approach to mean that we lose sight of the fact that this is your special day! We value collaboration and want your input, opinions and decisions on the recommendations we provide and work invested on your behalf. We simply put the fun back into being an engaged couple and allow you to be a part of the excitement of planning a wedding but not so you have to deal with the technical side of how it gets there. Being a wedding planner doesn't mean we "take over" your wedding.  

How Long Have You been Planning Weddings Professionally?

Michelle Garibay was involved with corporate and political event planning for over 5 years and made the transition to weddings when her husband was transferred temporarily to Hawaii in 2006. Her company turned 13 years old this year!
