Hiring Michelle was absolutely the best decision we made for our wedding. HANDS DOWN, she is amazing! I lack the words to fully capture how wonderful Michelle is and how much value she added throughout ever step of our planning process. I kept stumbling upon Michelle’s stunning work and was excited to see what she might come up with for my “classic, yet modern geometric” wedding. I contacted her with a brief and a budget, and she immediately starting brainstorming ways that we could bring my ideas to life. This was the beginning of an incredibly collaborative and supportive relationship. Michelle embraced my hopes and was ALWAYS the fiercest advocate for what was in my heart. Even when I doubted my dreams–or our ability to pull it all off–she helped me see what was possible. She believed in our “perfect day” more than anyone–and, most importantly, she made it all happen! Michelle was the bright spot through the inevitable (and numerous!!) twists and turns, and just an awesome human all around. When things went crazy, she was like my best friend, telling me that it was all going to work out, helping me to think clearly, and providing her professional expertise. I NEVER doubted that Michelle was on my side and would do everything in her power to help me. When the stress of planning a wedding from NYC (where I live) was adding up, Michelle was there like a superhero. It’s also worth noting that Michelle worked miracles to execute my vision and stay within our budget. She crafted huge 3D geometric shapes from wooden dowels to save money (they looked fab!), picked flowers from a local farm to get the best blooms, and found a ton of little details that made our reception feel like us. Michelle is a world-class wedding planner, and a caring, smart, and talented person. It was such a pleasure working with her. I feel blessed to have had her by my side!     ~Angela

With the goal of taking our client experience to the next level, we recently hired Debbi Hildenbrand to manage and coordinate all events in 2016.  It turned out to be one of the best moves we have made.  Debbi handled all of our events with tremendous care and diligence.  There was never a doubt that all details were handled meticulously and we had confidence that our precious clients were going to be cared for.  It made the experience better for everyone, including our team leaders, as we were able to enjoy those days so much more knowing that things were going to run smoothly.  AND THEY DID! We look forward to partnering on many more events in the future!” – Mark Zichterman, Branch Manager; Assistant Vice President, Investments North Coast Wealth Advisors of Raymond ‘James

Michelle with Red Heels Events made my wedding the “party of the decade,” to quote some of our attendees. It was truly the most magical day and I couldn’t have done it without her. I gave her some ideas and thoughts that I had regarding the style and theme of the day and she completely ran with it, going above and beyond even my wildest expectations. I would highly recommend her for any event planning needs in West Michigan.     ~Shannon
