“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou

"Being in the wedding industry for 20 years and working exclusively at the Walnut Grove for the last 14 of those years, I can honestly say that I have a true passion for what I do. Making sure couples (and their families and friends) have an unforgettable experience by helping them create lasting memories that they will cherish for a lifetime, is the goal for every event that I am a part of. There is nothing quite like being able to witness my couples and thier friends and family gather together to celebrate one of life's most important moments. I really can't imagine doing anything else."
When I am not working, I love being with my own family - my husband Jeremiah and two (almost) grown children, Bella and Zach, and our three dogs, Olive, Georgia and Francesca. I also love entertaining friends and family at my home, decorating and home improvement as well as anything that allows me to be creative.
Katie was a former Walnut Grove bride and Mia Bella Weddings client. After her wedding she contacted Michele and expressed how much she enjoyed her experience and loved the process of wedding planning. Michele was grateful that she inquired as her experience working with Katie during her planning process revealed how naturally organized, detailed oriented and prepared Katie was. It didn't hurt that Michele genuinely loved her as a person too! After training with Michele for a full season, she quickly became Michele's right hand. Now with over 6 years experience as a Mia Bella Wedding Coordinator and working at Walnut Grove, she is a crucial part of our success and has a long list of couples that loved working with her.
When she isn't working Katie enjoys spending time with her husband Devin, adorable cutie pie daughter Harper, and their Aussie pup Razzle.
Leeron was also a former Walnut Grove bride and Mia Bella Weddings client. Even before she was married, she reached out and wanted to learn more about becoming a coordinator. From the first day assisting Michele on an event, it was apparent that her bubbly personality and warm, gentle manner was an exact representation of what Mia Bella stands for. She has quickly become part of the family, taking great pride in learning the ropes and wanting to be prepared for her couples.
When Leeron isn't working she enjoys time with her new hubby Joel and working in enriching the lives of children through Teen Talk and Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles.
Emily is the newest addition to our Mia Bella family but Michele has known her for several years.

She is excited about becoming a full time Wedding Coordinator for Mia Bella Weddings and with her energetic and sweet personality, she fits right in with us! We are thrilled to have her!
Emily is a California native but loves to travel, lived in Montana for a bit, and is a recent graduate from USC.
