A few things about Ellamae Productions you need to know. Michelle's process is very thorough and detailed. Her background and experience is next to none. She is very keen and attentive.

"Michelle’s ability to follow through on tasks in a timely way and guide us on what we needed to do to complete a task helped us manage the event well.
She continually updated detailed planning documents, and made sure that we felt confident that everything was well in hand. She was in contact with all internal team members and vendors to make sure that work was being completed correctly and on time.
One skill that I greatly value in an event producer is someone who conveys a quiet sense of confidence in her ability to complete a project. Michelle does that on so many levels and as someone running an organization, it is extremely reassuring to know that a task will be handled. She is someone who can be counted on to deliver in a very calm, self-assured way. Michelle's extensive experience in the area of event planning gives us a strong feeling that we are in good hands.
Her very personable demeanor and overall presence makes her a pleasure to work with her. Her warmth and care about everything she does is a strength I value."

"We had our wedding a month ago and it went better than we could have imagined! The day before and day of the wedding I was able to relax and enjoy the big day all because of Michelle.
She was so on top of it, and it was even a destination wedding. She was always two steps ahead and knew every question to ask each vendor. She has amazing prioritizing and organizational skills! I can’t begin to say how thankful my mom and I were for her.
She even put up with my last minute changes. At the beginning of the wedding, I decided to change where we were going to walk down from (because the caterer had parked in the wrong area and was blocking the original walkway) and Michelle calmly told me not to worry and told us where we should all line up instead, and proceeded to let the photographer etc. know that the plans had changed. It went perfectly! I didn’t even have a chance to get stressed!
Even during the months before the wedding, Michelle made herself available if I had any questions or concerns and offered advice from her event planning experience, which was beyond helpful to me! She went through my list and reminded me of things I missed. She put the time and effort in to get to know me, my style and preferences. I assume this is why at every step she seemed to know what I would want before I would even say it! I could go on and on, but to sum it up, Michelle made me feel completely confident to hand over the day to her so that I could be fully present for the biggest day of my life!"

"Michelle and her team were a pleasure to work with. We threw a lot of unique challenges her way, combining traditional wedding ceremony elements with very untraditional reception activities and catering.
She gracefully navigated the preferences of all involved parties and took on every change we threw at her without blinking. She was focused, organized, and above all, positive. As a bride, I always looked forward to seeing her and working with her and left every meeting or call feeling more confident and excited about our wedding day."
- Blair Figari
"Michelle is a very talented producer. Her extensive knowledge in several aspects of a production is unique and extremely valuable.
Michelle's poise and positive demeanor from start to finish helps make the entire process more enjoyable and there is no doubt she puts her heart into her work!"
