I have always been passionate about helping people build lasting memories, which is the driving force behind Magnolia & Grace. If we’re being honest, I love nothing more than designing moments that last a lifetime. I find immense joy in taking a single detail, like a family heirloom or fabric swatch, and allowing that element to grow into something that transforms an entire space. I’m the type of person that never touches anything with half of my heart, I’m always all in.

I fancy myself well-versed in the art of entertaining, and a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to the world of events. I’ve planned everything from large-scale nonprofit galas to intimate private estate celebrations, and everything in between. 

our unique approach

We believe in celebrating life’s special moments in abundance and with a grateful heart. We do what we do because creating engaging experiences and love filled memories brings us as much joy as it does to you. From the day you get engaged to the moment you jet-set off for your honeymoon, we’re by your side crafting a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you and your guests.

Our philosophy is to provide honest guidance, a straightforward process, and a collaborative environment in order to turn our client’s visions into realities. We focus on classic, but current designs that are meaningful, thoughtful, and intentional.

Taking on a limited number of events each year allows us to ensure quality service and attention to each and every detail. Everything we do, we do with love.

Magnolia & Grace is located in North Carolina, however, we work with couples all over the East Coast. Have another location in mind? Our passports are up to date and ready at a moment’s notice. We even have a curated list of dream wedding locations.

Love our heart? Well then, we just might make the perfect team! Drop us a note to learn more about how we can help tell your love story and build a legacy you’re proud to show off.

how we're building
our legacy

Throughout the entire wedding planning process, my husband and I always felt like we were the only couple working with Michelle. The care and attention Michelle provided made us feel like a priority. We are forever grateful for this invaluable gift. We highly recommend Michelle as your wedding planner and legacy builder.

I was so blessed to find Michelle and get to have her as my wedding planner! Her attention to detail and thoughtful consideration of all my ideas made me so happy I chose her to help me on my big day. She's professional, diligent, and so easy-going! - Katie & Brett

Magnolia & Grace Events went above and beyond to ensure all vendors were on the same page, mitigated any day of issues with grace and displayed leadership with warmth and kindness. If you want your big day to be uniquely tailored to you AND stress free, this is the team you MUST have working behind the scenes! - Lauren & Jack
