At Michelle Leo Events, it is important for our team to stay up-to-date on industry standards, popular services, competitive pricing, past and present traditions, religious customs, all things wedding trends, the millions of do’s and don’ts, and all that falls in between. Likewise, it’s truly valuable to MLE and oh so refreshing when our clients are also in the know, or maybe in the dark but eager to learn! If you’re one of the those newly engaged couples trying to decide WHAT a wedding planner does and IF you need one, MLE’s FAQ section can help address that. At very minimum, MLE (and most wedding venues) highly encourage couples to invest in a month-of coordination package. To expand your knowledge of what a month-of wedding coordinator is (and isn’t) and how MLE’s month-of service might be exactly what you’re looking for, we invite you to read on as MLE presents our first post of the “Educate Me, MLE!” series.

An unforgettable highlight was the bride and groom’s grand exit as Tyler drove his motorcycle out of the house and down a porte-cochere lined by guests waving a sea full of sparklers.
