MICHELLE RICHEY

WEDDING PLANNING MANAGER

Hi, I'm Michelle! My wedding planning journey began in 2015 when I planned my own wedding and realized I had a passion for love and event planning.

I decided to look for a mentor through any means necessary and I was lucky enough to find Devoted Columbus; a company I can grow with! I graduated from Franklin University with a degree in Psychology. I have 2 doggies(Bentley and Charlie) and a husband (Brandon).Apart from Event Planning, I love to travel.Especially to warm and beachy locations!

Love Notes

Devoted Columbus logo emblem.

We had the amazing luck of finding Michelle on the knot and I can’t imagine our dream wedding without her. Because of Michelle I had zero stress and it felt like our day was flawlessly perfect (which I’m sure it wasn’t!) Michelle was creative, organized, most of all trusting. If she said she was going to do something— it was done immediately and with bells and whistles. I could not give columbus bride and groom and Michelle any higher rating and can not thank them enough. If you want an epic dream wedding... look no further!

I hired Devoted Columbus for wedding day assistance, and I am so glad I did! My wedding day assistant, Belle, was so phenomenal. Not only was Belle an excellent resource pre-wedding, answering my questions and helping us create a very detailed, well thought out timeline , but she helped make the day so enjoyable for us by anticipating our needs and taking care of everything for us! I was so thankful I could rely on her to make sure everything during the wedding went smoothly and that everything was packed up after the wedding. She made sure we had everything we needed to have an enjoyable day, checking in just the right amount. I specifically appreciated her getting us cocktails during post-ceremony pictures so we could focus on enjoying the evening! Whenever we asked her about something or had a question, she had either already handled it for us or made sure it would be taken care of. I truly would not have had such a wonderful wedding day without Belle and I am so thankful that she was our wedding day assistant!

Rachael with Devoted Columbus was a tremendous help in pulling together our wedding day, from going and getting extra flowers that weren't delivered to keeping everyone organized and ready for when the time came to walk down the aisle. She did a great job with the setup and teardown of the venue as well. The planning meetings were really helpful along with her running the rehearsal with us. I don't think our day would have gone as smoothly without her. I definitely recommend having Devoted Columbus as a planner and guide for your wedding.

Michelle is hands down who you want finalizing the big and small details of your wedding! These are so many things that would have never came to mind for me before our wedding. Michelle made all of them happen!! Do not stress, do not worry, do not panic and hire devoted to details. We had an amazingly smooth wedding because they handled everything. I can look back on my day with love and excitement instead of what could have went wrong. Do yourself the favor of removing the crazy and just enjoy your special day!!
