Born and raised in New Orleans, I love this big little city, #NOLA. I’m a proud mother of an amazing son, who is just like his mother - a lover of tacos, a traveler, a creative heart, and true lover of love! I live a quiet and connected lifestyle, where I enjoy spending time with my son (before he runs off to college!). I also enjoy cooking, hosting dinner parties, and spending time with family and friends. I’d have to say that my favorite pastime is beating my older brother at Scrabble!
HOW IT ALL STARTED
With a background in accounting, I landed a wonderful job. While I toiled away, I became the unofficial event planner for my corporation. As I embraced this new position, I fell in love with work all over again. I made the decision to leave my accounting days behind, and committed to exploring my interest in events and design. With that, Michelle Norwood Weddings + Events launched in 2013. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to work with countless amazing couples, and our weddings and events has been featured in numerous magazines, blogs and publications world wide.
ABOUT THE WEDDINGS
We specialize in destination weddings, which means clients can come here to New Orleans, we can go to the clients, or we can all go somewhere across the world together! We love planning multiple-day destination events - each always has their own distinct style and personality. Our goal is to create distinctive celebrations that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime. Our style is effortless and natural; creating weddings that feel elegant but not fussy, unique but not contrived, timeless and always personal.
ABOUT THE CLIENTS
Our dream clients are style-forward, travel-focused, and love to fully experience other cultures. They are open-minded and gracious, with elevated tastes and nothing to prove. These clients kindly allow us a glimpse into their lives – from their closets to Instagram and Pinterest pages, so we can design every detail with their unique tastes in mind. These clients trust our aesthetic, judgement and recommendations.
I am so excited for this year’s coming weddings and am oh so grateful for all the amazing past couples that invited me to be a part of their special day. Thank you!
