I thrive to make your event memorable and stress free!
I am an event and wedding planner that focuses solely on what the client wants. It is my goal to make your dream event come true and to provide you with quality service that will leave you without a doubt in your mind. Throwing an event is stressful and the last thing that the host needs is to have all of the weight on their shoulders. This is where I step in and provide you with all of the help that I can.
I am an Organizational Communications graduate from Kent State University where I focused on event and wedding planning. I interned with the City of Akron and the Akron Art Museum. With the City of Akron, I scheduled many outings and group events. While I was at the Akron Art Museum I have been the event coordinator for their large black tie fundraising event for three years running. Through my full time job I have also had the opportunity to chair the Dreamnight committee at the Akron Zoological Park for five years (which is an event with a local hospital) and have had the opportunity to be involved with many catering events and our black tie event.
I have planned multiple weddings including destination and local. I have also planned and executed many birthday parties, bachelor parties, bachelorette parties and much more!

Machelle Montgomery made our destination wedding in Hilton Head, SC stress free for us, and extremely elegant. She did everything from interviewing the venues to finding the salons, flowers, officiant... everything! Just like the name on her business card, she perfected "our memorable moment." Thank you for all of your hard work, elegant touches and compassion, Machelle! -Ashley Terronez, Columbus, Ohio
Machelle Montgomery planned and facilitated our wedding last July and it couldn't have gone more perfectly! The response cards she designed were festive and fun. She was organized, logical, and creative so I had the best of both worlds. She worked out the details for maps and directions, time tables for the ceremony and catering at the reception, to keeping me calm on the big day. I couldn't have had a better wedding planner! -Beth Kreiner, Mogadore, Ohio
Machelle Montgomery has served on the Akron Art Museum’s SWITCH committee for the last three years. The first year she became involved as an intern in the museum’s development department and volunteered to create and implement a timeline for the new fundraising event. Since this involved switching themes three times during the evening, the timeline was a critical component. Machelle’s detailed plan and her personal management all evening assured that SWITCH was a huge success. Machelle moved on to taking responsibility for creating and implementing the timeline. She also assumed other roles that included ordering event items, securing raffle items and assembling gift baskets for major patrons. Mathelle’s enthusiasm and willingness to take on and carry out multiple responsibilities as a committee member has been invaluable to the success of SWITCH, raising operating funds each year to sustain the Akron Art Museum’s mission to enrich lives through modern art.
