Get to know Michele…
Michele was born and raised in Southern California and relocated to Roanoke, Virginia in May 2011. Her passion and love for wedding planning began when she was a teenager. Starting in 2007, she was an assistant to a veteran planner, where her passion grew and then shortly after decided to start her own company, The Perfect Fairytale. Earning a wedding planning certification from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, and a Bachelors Degree in Communications from California State University, Fullerton, Michele has taken her education and coordinated various events utilizing her knowledge, artistic talents and surrounding environments for inspiration.

As of January 2014, Michele became the Editor and Creative Director of The Wedding Planner Magazine of Roanoke and the New River Valley. With her new role, Michele is able to tell all of the readers an exact step-by-step guide on how to plan your perfect wedding. Not only does she write the content for the magazine, she is in charge of coordinating and styling the photo shoots that are featured in each issue.

When Michele isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Paul, and their puppy, Colby. She also loves trying new restaurants, country line dancing, working out along the greenway and visiting family back in Southern California.
Get to know Lexi…
Lexi grew up in Amherst County and fell in love with weddings right away as a child. She remembers starting to plan her own wedding at ten years old. She met the man of her dreams and tied the knot in June of 2012. After planning her wedding, she continued to plan a few friends’ weddings. In April 2013, Lexi started assisting and interning with Michele and completely loved it. Her organizational skills and enthusiasm for weddings has helped her while servicing and executing all aspects of wedding planning. As of June 2014, Lexi joined The Perfect Fairytale team and became Assistant Wedding Planner. She will be coordinating weddings from beginning to end, offering full planning services, working alongside Michele. We are very excited about the new addition to our team and look forward to many successful events together!

In addition to her love for wedding planning, she has a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and works a few days a week at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.

When Lexi isn’t working, she enjoys reading, gardening, cooking and working on various household projects with her husband, Steve. Read less

Michele was amazing as she helped my daughter and me plan for her wedding! She was definitely worth her very affordable fee! It was the best money we spent for the wedding. She was invaluable in narrowing down vendors so that we could then interview only a few rather than many to find just the right ones. She saved us time and money, which was especially helpful since my daughter lives 3 hrs. away. Michele is very knowledgeable about anything to do with weddings.

All of the wedding party and parents were very impressed and appreciative of her and Lexi on the day of the wedding as they were very patient, calm, polite and, most importantly, professional. Above all, she is very organized, which helped us a great deal as well as all of the vendors.

I would highly recommend The Perfect Fairytale with Michele and Lexi!

We cannot praise Michelle enough! She was the first to respond when we first started looking into wedding planners and has shown herself to be worth her weight in gold ever since. Neither my wife nor I really had time to do much planning, so Michelle did all the legwork, research, and coordination for us which made planning simple, easy, and even fun! She made sure that everything was lined up and stayed lined up and when curve balls and snafus happened during the month prior, she handled every problem almost as soon as it had come up. On the day of, she made sure that everything happened exactly as it was supposed to, and the day itself was a perfect vision of exactly what we had planned. She made it happen, she was even able to get everything we wanted for a little under budget, and we couldn't have asked for more. We would both absolutely recommend The Perfect Fairytale to anyone who is getting ready to tie the knot!

My husband and I agree that the best money we spent on our entire wedding was on Michele. She is the BEST! She was so organized and helpful. I couldn't imagine how stressed I would have been on my Wedding Day if I didn't know she was on top of every single detail. She was truly a blessing to us -- not only did she monitor all of the setup and cleanup, she was in contact with all of our vendors the week before to confirm all of the deliveries and balances. She made the entire experience enjoyable for me, my husband and all of our guests.

Michele with The Perfect Fairytale was outstanding from start to finish with making our wedding absolutely incredible. From day one she was attentive, available, prompt and flexible. She was on top of the timeline, allowing for steady consistent progress and avoiding hectic stress that can sometimes accompany such an event. I was coming from a place of little knowledge, and she provided information and guidance to make it an easy process to plan all of the details of a wedding. Furthermore, I could not be more grateful that she was there on our wedding day. She was calm and professional, and took care of the details, the arrangements, all of the coordination, so I was able to have stress-free day. I didn't have to worry because I knew she was on top of it. While I'm sure there were surprises along the way, I was never aware of anything but a perfectly smooth day. And that was what was truly such a gift- our wedding day was ONLY about the marriage, about family and friends, and about celebration of love. I could not be happier or more grateful to have had Michele by our side during this life event, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone I know.

We hired Michele to be our wedding coordinator in the few weeks leading up to the wedding, I didn't know if I thought a wedding coordinator was necessary - but my mom was sure we needed one. And by the end of my wedding, I was sold. I needed one. I was so stress free and calm on my wedding day because she handled everything from making sure decorations were set up, to keeping families calm, setting up a surprise for my husband, and even handling mishaps. The day of my wedding they delivered the wrong dessert and I never knew until afterwards! Michele handled it and cared for me so well. My wedding couldn't have happened with out her - I was a nice bride and my mom was a happy mother of the bride, what more could you ask for?

Michele has got to be the best wedding planner ever. She was there through every crisis wether it was large or small and she made life so much easier for us throughout the planning and day of. Not only is she great at her job she is one of the most caring and compassionate people we've ever met. She did everything in her power to ensure that our special day was beyond special...she even made the weather turn better!! ;) Having been to many weddings and hearing peoples stories about what went wrong or what they would change we can honestly say we had The Perfect Fairytale there truly is not a single thing we would have changed. If your looking for the best here it is!!

I would not consider having a wedding in Virginia without Michele. I got the Gem Package- to say she is worth every penny is an understatement (this coming from a student bride on govt loans). She is detailed-oriented, enthusiastic, always answered email/texts quickly, gave great advice, and really got a feel for our personalities / captured the type of wedding we wanted. I planned my wedding from the opposite coast and during law school- she took it over and transformed it, lifting away my wedding stress. Once we brought her on, I felt like everything was on track due to her incredible organizational skills. Unlike what I thought in the beginning, you cannot be both coordinator and bride, even with a smaller wedding like mine (60 ppl). Due to my budget concerns, I did my due diligence research on wedding coordinators within a 3 hour radius of my wedding (weddingwire, craigslist, and every other website you can imagine), corresponded with many, and Michele was the obvious choice. The Perfect Fairytale is the best value. She comes from Southern California where I live now, which is an area SATURATED with wedding coordinators; you have to be amazing to survive in this market. The fact that she moved to Virginia makes very lucky VA brides.. I could not recommend her enough.

Daniel and I sat down the first day we got engaged and made a list of the top 5 most important things concerning our wedding to help us with budgeting; at that point, a wedding planner wasn't on the list. We were about half way through planning when we realized we needed someone special to help us and make sure that the day of the wedding was everything we had been imagining. Well, knowing what I know now, I would have put Michele at the #1 spot on our "Top 5 Wedding Priorities" list.

I met Michele while trying on wedding dresses, and we just clicked. From the second you meet her, you love her. She is professional and organized, and though those are the two most important qualities you want in a wedding planner, it was her kind heart, soothing calmness, and true desire to make our wedding dreams come true that sets her apart from other planners. Those last three things aren't things you can learn; it's just a part of who she is. She takes pride in her career.

We hired Michele for "day-of" planning, and we are so glad we did. Daniel and I had so much fun planning our wedding and didn't find it stressful.... So we are proof that everyone will benefit from hiring Michele. Her "day-of" planning is much more than just showing up the day of your wedding and telling people where to be and what to do. She took every ounce of stress out of the last month and wedding day. The last month before your wedding is crunch time. You have to get everything organized with vendors, create a timeline, and get through your wedding day sane. Honestly, the last week I didn't have to think of anything.... She had it all ready! Daniel, our bridal party, and I laughed, played, and had a stress free day. Not once did I think of anything but the moment I was in because I trusted Michele. She is flexible to your needs and because of her we can call our wedding day the best day of our lives.

There was so much more to putting together a wedding than I anticipated. Luckily I had Michele to run to when I was overwhelmed with choosing vendors and keeping everything within our budget. She created our budget spreadsheet and showed me where we were spending and what percentage we should expect to spend on each thing. It was so nice to be able to rely on her expertise to guide me through the whole process. Michele was very organized and brought together our whole day with her detailed timeline and vendor contact list. Michele is fantastic at what she does and knowing that allowed my husband and I to just enjoy our special day.

The Perfect Fairytale was exactly what my husband and I had in mind for our special day, after all, who doesn't want the perfect wedding? Michelle made the planning feel effortless with her professional attitude and great organizational skills. She really listened to what I wanted and what I had in mind, took what I told her, and made it all come true for me. The stress over planning a wedding can quickly build up, and for me, it didn't take long before I felt overwhelmed with all of the available options there were...FOR EVERYTHING! Michelle did a wonderful job of narrowing things down to suit our tastes, our preferences, and our budget. I definitely recommend using The Perfect Fairytale as everyone's wedding planner, for us it was a lifesaver.
