She is friendly and professional, and will work hard to make sure your wedding is exactly what you envisioned. Two thumbs up!

Having Michelle as my wedding coordinator was a lifesaver and a dream come true. She is so committed to her clients, is so organized and on top of things, and always has such AMAZING ideas. She truly understands that this is one of the most important days of your life, and from her heart she wants to help make your day absolutely perfect. She takes it very seriously and is so caring of your special occasion! It was easy to collaborate in person or even far away through e-mail or text message. She's also very honest if she doesn't think something will look good together, and will come up with an idea that will blow you away instead. When we described what look we wanted for our wedding and showed pictures, she knew EXACTLY what vendor to go to that would fit both my idea and budget. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Michelle Garibay and her team, you just have to have this wonderful experience yourself. She helped make the entire wedding process fun, exciting and stress free! In the end, seeing all her hard work put together on my wedding day, it absolutely took my breath away. It was even better than I had imagined it would be. There's definitely no other coordinator you should consider other than Michelle Garibay Events!!

Let me preface this by saying that my mom and I are so beyond grateful for all that Michelle did to ensure my wedding was the perfect day. She went above and beyond!! We hired Michelle as a "day of" coordinator, since our venue had an events team in place. However, the venue (a Temecula winery) went through numerous staff changes up to just weeks before our wedding, which had me and my mom both very, very nervous. Michelle was with us the whole way, in constant communication, and even met my mom at the winery (again) the week before the wedding to ensure the new events team at the winery was up to speed. Michelle is a true professional, and she most definitely knows her way around the Temecula wineries. We had yet to receive a seating plan for the reception, and Michelle came to the rescue by sending us an old one she had used there. She answered many questions for us when the event team at the venue temporarily stopped responding to emails. Michelle will give you honest, much needed feedback which is extremely helpful to anyone planning a wedding for the first time. She calmed us down, took care of any and all issues, and thanks to her the wedding was an even bigger success than we could have imagined!

Thank you, Karen! It was such a pleasure working with you and your mom and I'm so pleased you and Jon had an amazing wedding day. Your comments just reaffirm the point that it is important to hire an outside Day of Coordinator because you never know what type of (multiple!) staffing changes a venue might go through and the communication lost from person to person. I am very thankful that I was your constant and able to provide you with the peace of mind you needed! Best wishes to you both!

If you are looking for an amazing wedding coordinator....look no further. Michelle planned the wedding of our son, Joseph and his beautiful bride Hilary. The wedding took place outdoor in the garden of the Darlington House in La Jolla, CA in late April. We knew there could be a chance of lite rain but really didn't expect it. Of course it rained, and it rained hard! Upon Michelle's suggestion the day before, a tent was ordered for the garden. Magically, Michelle coordinated the wedding around the rain to the point where guests commented on how the rain just seemed to be an added touch to the beauty of the day. The tent was beautifully decorated and none of the guests were inconvenienced and the day continued on as planned. The day was perfect and magical. I know that behind the scenes Michelle must have been crazy making adjustments to accommodate the rain but you honestly would have never known. To me that is a sign of a true professional and an amazing coordinator who works miracles in a moments notice!

Michelle planned our San Diego wedding from start to finnish. It was absolutely beautiful and everything went smoothly day of. She was always quick to respond, creative whenever we ran into some issue, and understanding of our budget. She was totally sweet and understood my vision of what I wanted my wedding to look like. I couldn't have been more excited to see everything come together. I would recommend Michelle to any friend of mine looking for a wedding planner! Thank you Michelle for everything you have done for us. <3 Hilary Matson

Let me just preface by saying that my wedding venue (Callaway Vineyards in Temecula) prides itself in offering two venue coordinators as part of their wedding package. So, knowing that, my husband and I initially thought that it would be a waste of money to hire an event designer/wedding coordinator. As the planning progressed, we found that the term "venue coordinator" and "wedding coordinator" tends to be used interchangeably, when it's not the same thing. The Venue Coordinator will help assist you with all things venue-specific, but they're role doesn't include helping you with design thought leadership, ]timeline development, contacting all vendors, etc. Anyway, my point is that I realized TWO months before the wedding that I had to literally do everything myself....that is, until we hired Michelle and Samantha!! I’m so glad that we did!

Michelle worked with us for our event design & I am pleased with how everything turned out. Michelle provides thought leadership in her design recommendations & she will flat out tell you if something would look tacky or out of whack for your theme. So, just know that you are getting professional insights and the results definitely show. In the end, we had so many compliments from our guests as to how tasteful and beautiful our wedding looked! “Magazine-worthy”, as some said. She is also responsive and was great at working with our venue to ensure that details were ironed out.

Samantha was our day-of-coordinator and she was always there for us and our guests when anyone had any questions. She truly made everyone feel taken care of and comfortable. Also, Samantha ensured that I always had the wine I wanted at my table (with everything going on, a lot of brides don’t even get to eat or drink at their own wedding – so I really appreciated how she looked out for me so that I could enjoy my own wedding).

Long story short: I’m a fan and will highly recommend. Enough said!

Professional. Organized. Dedicated. Knowledgeable. Hard-working.

Those are just a few words that describes our amazing wedding planner, Michelle Garibay.

Michelle is so incredibly organized, I honestly don't know how she does it! Our wedding was everything and more than we could have imagined. Michelle worked hard from the moment we had our initial consultation and was very prompt with communication which is what sealed the deal for us. I spent about a month researching wedding planners and I just wasn't getting timely responses from local wedding planners on Oahu. Being from the east coast, prompt communication was essential for us. Michelle is based out of CA but is very knowledgeable about and has great relationships with the vendors in Hawaii. Every vendor she recommended for our wedding did a remarkable job and I was so glad the night went on without any problems that we were aware of. We were able to enjoy the night without having to worry about anything. That in itself is worth it!

She was very realistic and upfront about what we could do with our budget. We appreciate that she respected our budget and still was able to create our vision

She has a keen eye for details and her ideas came to life and turned out beautifully. We were very impressed with her professionalism and her hard-working mentality. She really knows exactly what she is doing and words cannot express how grateful we are to have had the opportunity to work with her. I would absolutely recommend Michelle and her event planning services. She made the wedding planning process less stressful and actually enjoyable and fun!

Michelle and her amazing team at Blue Sky Productions were a dream to work with every step of the planning process.

When we first thought of hiring a wedding planner we debated for a long time if it was really worth the cost. I am happy to say that her fee was well worth it and more!

Michelle's responsiveness was top notch and she made me feel as though I was her only client, as my constant emails had replies waiting for me within minutes.

I was also a bit hesitant at first when I found out that Michelle wasn't going to be the day of the wedding planner (she was so great I couldn’t imagine anyone else being there) but she put me in the best hands ever when she set us up with Alicia for our wedding day coordinator.

Alicia was so sweet and made the wedding day flow so smoothly. All of my wedding party raved about her professionalism and her warm and friendly demeanour.

Both Michelle and Alicia were extremely flexible as well, I had 3 unexpected guests surprise us for our wedding day and Michelle and Alicia were so helpful they had it all arranged without my knowledge.

I would recommend Michelle and her company to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner with the best vendor contacts Hawaii has to offer, responds immediately to even your silliest questions, offers great advice, and makes your wedding day flaw free and the greatest day of your life.

You will not regret your decision hiring this company!

Many Mahalo Michelle & Alicia

Alicia was so sweet and made the wedding day flow so smoothly. All of my wedding party raved about her professionalism and her warm and friendly demeanour.

Both Michelle and Alicia were extremely flexible as well, I had 3 unexpected guests surprise us for our wedding day and Michelle and Alicia were so helpful they had it all arranged without my knowledge.

I would recommend Michelle and her company to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner with the best vendor contacts Hawaii has to offer, responds immediately to even your silliest questions, offers great advice, and makes your wedding day flaw free and the greatest day of your life.

You will not regret your decision hiring this company!

Many Mahalo Michelle & Alicia
