If you are seriously considering a wedding planner/coordinator, contact SRE. My wedding was the most beautiful even of my life thanks to them. I did not have to worry about anything, since they were able to do everything for me on my wedding day. I could not begin to tell you how much better the whole planning process was having Michelle coordinating everything. Great service and great people! You will become friends with such a wonderful person working with you for months on end!

Simply Refined Events (Michelle Scarzone) is amazing. We were fortunate to have Simply Refined Events for the entire wedding process: from begging design to brunch the next day. I highly recommend Simply Refined Events for any wedding planning needs. From the first meeting until the last guest left, our wedding was flawless, thanks to Michelle. She is very organized, detailed, and easy to work with. Michelle's resources are limitless, and this gives the bride a perfectly matched vendor list to choose from. Our wedding day was the most perfect day. My husband and I were able to relax, and enjoy family and friends without any worries.

Thanks again for EVERYTHING, Michelle!!!

When my husband and I first started planning for our wedding the most important this we wanted was for all our guests to enjoy themselves. We didn’t want friends and family running around helping to set things up. We wanted people to enjoy our wedding as much as we planned to! That is when we decided a day of coordinator was the way to go.
From our first meeting with Michelle we knew we were in good hands, we went over all the general information and soon realized there was a lot more to planning a wedding then we originally thought. Since I’m not originally from the Phoenix area I had no idea where to start when looking for vendors. Thankfully Michelle was able to provide me with names of vendors that she had previously worked with and knew would be able to fulfill our needs as well as our budget.
Michelle was always available for phone calls and meetings, she was always on top of everything and one step ahead of what needed to be done. She really went above and beyond even helping with centerpieces (that looked beautiful) to make sure we stayed with our budget. Everything was super organized the day of, and if there were any hiccups we were unaware.
Everything was great, we really had a beautiful wedding and thanks to simply refined events we were able to enjoy it worry free!

Hiring Michelle with Simply Refined Events was the best decision I ever made. Since I was living in Virginia and getting married in Scottsdale, AZ, I needed help, and Michelle came to my rescue every time. Besides being one of the nicest people one could ever meet, she is completely professional, organized, and creative. I never expected Michelle to go outside her job description but she did and with total willingness to help me lower my stress. She put our wedding together with total attention to every detail and it was beautiful.

The best decision my husband and I made was to hire Michelle to be our wedding coordinator! Michelle, in conjunction with Your Heart's Desire, coordinated our wedding in November. I had already hired the big vendors like catering and photographer, but there were so many things about putting a wedding together that I didn't know. I would have been lost without Michelle. My husband and I had chosen to have our wedding at a house and did not realize the logistics of bringing all the services in to a private residence. Michelle was on top of everything!! She worked with us doing site visits with vendors, identified things that we had missed and helped us finish them, and generally gave us the piece of mind that on the day of the wedding, everything would go smoothly. She helped us build the vision of our wedding to perfection!

The week of the wedding, the forecast called for rain, potentially making our outside wedding a disaster. I called Michelle and found that she had already been in touch with the rentals company we were using to discuss the possibility of putting up tents to keep the ceremony and reception dry and comfortable. She was always thinking ahead and making a back up plan.

During all the planning every bride has stress. On the day of the wedding, all my stress dissolved knowing that Michelle was there to handle everything. All the planning that she and I did payed off because the wedding went perfectly!! At least that's how it seemed to us and all of our guests because if anything did go wrong Michelle handled expertly without us ever knowing!! I never had to worry about anything or make any more decisions! I just enjoyed myself spending time with my new husband, family and friends.

Anybody that hires Michelle is guaranteed an amazing wedding. She is not only detail oriented and organized but she is a pleasure to work with. Her personality inspires confidence and she makes the planning fun. She is very real, down to earth and easy to get along with.

I never thought I would be the kind of person to use a wedding coordinator much less be able to afford one. I got engaged shortly after my father and my husbands father passed and the last thing I wanted to do was have a long engagement where I had to plan all the details of my wedding. I wanted to just have something quick and small, but my husband thought I would have regrets if we just ran away and got married alone. (Which I would have). He took the initiative to contact Michelle and discuss our budget and vision for a wedding to see if it was something she could work with. We live in Texas but I used to live in Arizona and that's where I wanted to get married so it was going to be even more difficult planning this wedding remotely but an agreement was made and thus the planning began! Michelle had to deal with a groom only in the beginning because I didn't want any part of the planning...I just wanted to show up. I opened up later on but she still helped shape our wedding into an amazing and beautiful day filled with wonderful memories. All of our guests still tell us how much fun they had and how laid back everything was. We didn't meet Michelle until the week of the wedding so she organized everything from the venue, vision, ceremony, rehearsal dinner, weird family dynamics had to be taken into consideration, the menu, and all the details for everything! So I was not expecting things to go smoothly but they did and I had such an amazing time. She worked with our budget and communicated everything timely and appropriately. I couldn't have imagined this wedding without her and I am so thankful for getting to meet and work with Michelle! She is highly recommended by myself and my husband Phillip!
Our wedding was planned in conjunction with Emily at Your Heart's Desire.

I never thought I would be the kind of person to use a wedding coordinator much less be able to afford one. I got engaged shortly after my father and my husbands father passed and the last thing I wanted to do was have a long engagement where I had to plan all the details of my wedding. I wanted to just have something quick and small, but my husband thought I would have regrets if we just ran away and got married alone. (Which I would have). He took the initiative to contact Michelle and discuss our budget and vision for a wedding to see if it was something she could work with. We live in Texas but I used to live in Arizona and that's where I wanted to get married so it was going to be even more difficult planning this wedding remotely but an agreement was made and thus the planning began! Michelle had to deal with a groom only in the beginning because I didn't want any part of the planning...I just wanted to show up. I opened up later on but she still helped shape our wedding into an amazing and beautiful day filled with wonderful memories. All of our guests still tell us how much fun they had and how laid back everything was. We didn't meet Michelle until the week of the wedding so she organized everything from the venue, vision, ceremony, rehearsal dinner, weird family dynamics had to be taken into consideration, the menu, and all the details for everything!
