Helping you plan and design your perfect event

My name is Michelle Mastro and I have lived in Lodi for 27 years. I have always had an interest in organizing celebrations. When I got the chance to plan my own wedding, I knew that planning events was what I wanted to do as a career. I love to work with local vendors, find great deals, and come up with design concepts for any type of event. My personal approach is to negotiate with local vendors and have fun working with my clients on the design of the event they wish to have planned. From weddings to birthday parties to helping plan final arrangements for a loved one, Mastro Planning and Design will masterfully plan any event for all occasions.

Having been a preschool teacher for the past 9 years I have planned open houses, seasonal parties, and meet and greats. In 2011, I had the opportunity to plan my own wedding of 75 guests. I have also planned a lot of our family events including birthday parties, graduations, and holiday parties.


There are several service options you can choose from:

Design Consultation:
This includes a one on one consultation on design ideas for any event you may be planning. Design may include anything from sequence of activities and timelines to color coordination.

This includes a one one one consultation where we will discuss vendor ideas, timeline of the event, and any questions you may have surrounding your event.

Day of Event:
This service entails me being at the event to help run the event smoothly, make sure the timeline is honored, and help with problem solving anything that may arise during the event. Whatever the event may be, this is a time for you to relax and enjoy the day, so leave all issues that happen that day to me.

Ceremony Only:
This service includes planning and executing all of your ceremony needs. Finding someone to perform the ceremony, setting up the ceremony, and any other vendors that may be needed for the ceremony. This also includes the consultation and day of the event if desired.

Reception Only:
This includes finding and organizing vendors such as catering and DJ or live band services, planning a timeline for the reception such as cutting the cake and dancing, setting up the tables including and linens and glassware, as well as clean up services for after the reception. This also includes the consultation and day of services.

Ceremony and Reception:
This services combines both the the ceremony services of planning and finding vendors with the reception services. Timelines, vendors, setting up, and clean up after guests have left for the evening. This also includes consultations.

Rehearsal, Ceremony, and Reception:
This service includes the ceremony and reception services as well as the rehearsal. I would be at the rehearsal with you and everyone involved in your special day to coordinate when each person will walk out, the way to walk, and where to stand during the ceremony. This also includes consultations.
