Testimonials for Machelle Montgomery

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.

Machelle has been a blessing in disguise! She has helped my fiance and I realize what the actual costs are of reception halls and catering and how to break down our budget for our special day. It has been wonderful to have someone give us creative suggestions, ideas and solutions to any problems that arise. Without her help and organization we would still be in the planning stages and uncertain of where to go next. -Elizabeth Dunfee, Columbus, Ohio

Because of Machelle, I did not have to worry about a thing, she took care of every detail. With my busy schedule, I could not have done this without her! -Amanda Erhard, Sterling, Ohio
