Let's be real for a moment, shall we? Maybe your MIL is a bit of a loose canon and that dream wedding you saw on Pinterest costs more than Beyoncé made last year. Not to worry, we've got you covered. The only thing you should be worrying about is how much fun you're about to have! 

Just Engaged? Already Stressed? We see you! 

Being a DC Wedding + Event Planner has provided me some pretty high HIGHS and even lower LOWS:

The Highs: Definitely traveling to new cities, meeting your parents (they always love me), and when you decide to hire Captain Cookie for your late night snack!

The Lows: Your last dance, our last email exchange, and not going to Tahiti with you on your honeymoon. Isn't that what best friends do?

My favorite weddings & events are those that aren’t afraid to push boundaries, take some risks and show a good example of a party! Obstacle in my way, bring it on!

I LOVE THIS CITY! There's nothing more I rather be doing than taking my dog Bentley on a long walk through our DC neighborhood in Brookland, or trying a new restaurant. Seriously, I'm pretty sure I'd be a food blogger if not for the event industry. Some of my faves are grabbing some spicy lo mein at Maketto, or a dozen Oysters at Old Ebbitt. Chocolate chip cookies will always have my heart and I'm not ashamed to say I follow Captain Cookie on twitter just to know where their truck is at any given moment.

I'm so thankful that you've decided to stop by, and even more excited that we'll be able to chat soon!

Michel-le' weeks

Since becoming a part of the SBE Team in 2018, I quickly found that being a wedding and event planner is such a rewarding experience, allowing me to flex my creativity to the absolute fullest. Creating one of a kind moments and experiences for our SBE couples is one of the greatest feelings.
I have a passion for connecting with our clients, and helping to keep them organized and relaxed throughout our time together is my top priority.
Though our busiest wedding & event seasons may be packed with venue tours and design meetings, you can usually find me binge watching the latest docu series, crime-drama or sci-fi thriller (yes, I love them all!). If I am not chasing my little one around the house, I am in the kitchen cheffing it up. I love recreating my restaurant faves at home!
