It All Started When.....
I was just a kid. I would turn my bedroom into a blissful wedding scene for my dolls to get married and live happily ever after. As I grew up, I exchanged my small room and dolls for my backyard and a couple of great friends. Lucky for me, they would let me dress them up, rehearse their wedding vows, and practice first dances and bouquet tosses. My passion and creativity for planning beautiful ceremonies didn't stop in my backyard or just at weddings. Instead, it carried through to my time at school. Teachers, students and friends would rely on me to help plan surprise parties, school dances, talent shows, volunteer activities, fundraisers, prom committees, homecoming parades, pep rallies, and even our graduation ceremony!
After a challenging entrance project, I was accepted to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Diego, California. I took courses that continued to build my foundation in planning, designing and creating the most amazing, outside of the box events. I continued to be a part of planning every fashion show F.I.D.M. held and volunteered for anything that put me in the event action. Attention to detail, creative thinking, and pursuing your passion was always reinforced and a continuous theme throughout my time at F.I.D.M. My professors said I had that natural talent for designing and executing events, my classmates were encouraging and inspiring and most importantly, I believed I had what it took. There was only one-way to find out. After my time in San Diego, I moved to New York.
It is here where I landed my first job working for a virtual bridal company as well as an event planner and a wedding planner. I think they call it the city that never sleeps, because there is absolutely no time for it. Luckily, I didn’t even notice because I was doing what I love, and calling it my job was just another perk. After discovering my passion and learning the keys to success, it is here in New York where I gained the experience and understanding of the amount of hard work, love, dedication, passion, and creativity that actually goes into planning a truly unique and unforgettable wedding or occasion.
Those same friends that let me dress them up as brides in my backyard came to me to plan their actual weddings. After long days, longer nights, and an endless supply of coffee, I was able to create and bring my friends’ big day visions to life! It was in those special moments I shared with them that gave me the final push to create and launch Jordan Michelle Events.
With each new wedding I book, I continue to keep that backyard best friend approach that allows me to ensure each wedding is created and designed with a one-of-a-kind, heartfelt, intimate, and unique touch. Every wedding begins with a vision and should end with happily ever after… When designed and created by Jordan Michelle Events that is exactly what happens and is our daily motto we live by.
Your wedding is a beautiful vision. Your wedding has a unique design. Your wedding will be a one-of-a-kind creation. Happily ever after begins here....
