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.

I just wanted to thank you for the invitation to The Wedding Experience. What a fun event! I would highly recommend it to anyone getting married. That atmosphere is much less invasive and personable than one of those big expos. My fiance and I had such a great time and although we’re getting married out of state, I got SO many ideas from the decor to the invitations that is was a HUGE help. Thanks so much!

Ashley

I’m so glad that I could attend The Wedding Experience and bring my fiance along with me. We attended with another couple who is also in the planning process and loved that you could accommodate us all being transported together to each facility. (thank you) Having us driven to each location was great especially seeing the different kinds of vehicles and not having the hassle of trying to drive around the city.

Alex & Friends

Thank you for having me at the experience. It was definitely worth coming out, and it was very different from other wedding shows; it wasn’t just a mass of vendors. This was enjoyable… I will definitely participate again.

Tiffany

What a great bridal show! I met wonderful wedding professionals and look forward to planning my wedding with them in 2011. I’ve never been to anything like this, it was nice to see different locations and get such great ideas.
