The one in Chicago is spearheaded by Michelle Durpetti, Ali Phillips, and Colin Pearson, and Jeannette Tavares formed the one in Washington DC. Michelle Durpetti is a Chicago based wedding planner, venue owner, and restaurateur with Michelle Durpetti Events. Ali Phillips is also a Chicago event producer with Engaging Events by Ali. Jeannette Tavares is the owner of Evoke Design & Creative, an event planning and production company out of Washington, DC. Listen as these amazing women discuss why they thought it was necessary to start these Coalitions to help small businesses and people in the event industry, what they see happening because of this pandemic, and the response they have received. Michelle, Ali, and Jeannette share what they want to happen and why they believe that the Coalitions will continue long after the pandemic has run its course. They saw a need and have set out to bring the plight of small business owners, and people who support the event industry, to the elected officials in their cities.

Is it time to start thinking about your wedding color palette, style inspirations, and the emotions expressed through your wedding aesthetic? Friends, you are going to LOVE this episode! Make a statement, stretch your dollars with high-impact choices, and feel confident that your wedding's style will be forever timeless. My guest in today's episode is celebrated wedding planner + stylist, Michelle Durpetti. Since the inception of Michelle Durpetti Events in 2008, Michelle has planned and produced over 300 weddings and events including some of Chicago’s most notable, celeb-studded events such as the Chicago Gateway Green’s annual Green Tie Ball, the Fiera Italiana, in conjunction with the annual Columbus Day Parade, for the Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans, and the Chicago Hunter Derby. Michelle was recently named one of the Top 50 Planners in the country by Partyslate and has been featured both nationally and locally by publications such as Inside Weddings, Style Me Pretty, Grace Ormonde, Modern Luxury Weddings, Strictly Weddings, Today’s Chicago Woman Magazine and more. In this episode:Michelle walks us through her journey as a planner and stylist over the last 20+ years and she shares where she goes for inspiration.What is the difference between a wedding coordinator, wedding planner, and a wedding stylist?We both share why you should not hire a day-of coordinator. Why you should spend a minimum of one month with your wedding coordinator (“month-of coordination.”)How to make sure your wedding has a rhythm and a nice energy to it.How to make your vendors your “creative partners” and how to choose vendors who have the right attitude and insight to make your day SO special.Michelle tells us about the first meeting she has with her new clients and the very special, and unique, night out she plans with them.Lots of advice and suggestions for the types of places a couple should look for wedding style inspiration - travels, movies, celebrity crushes, a historical figure, favorite stories, favorite books, landscapes, periods of time.How to take the visuals and translate them into words everyone can understand. It's a fine art!"You’re creating a day where you are going to look at this person and pledge to be their partner in good and in bad. And then you’re going to throw a big party, in your way, to celebrate that you just did that. And you’re going to be surrounded by the people that you like most when you do it. That should not hurt. That should not feel unpleasant." - MichelleWhat to do when you love the idea of something but you don’t think there is any way you can actually incorporate it into your special day.Start with your passions and look inside yourself. Because it can be so easy to lose sight of who you are and what you love when you allow yourself to become overwhelmed by outside influences (such as Pinterest and Instagram).How this industry is actually designed to cause overwhelm. It’s a huge machine now that is designed to “lessen authenticity.” That’s why so many creatives, and stylists, are actually fighting for authenticity.Are you experiencing Style FOMO? What to do when you’re having a hard time committing to one aesthetic when there are so many other options out there. How can you combat Style FOMO?How to get to the point of feeling creatively satiated.Michelle talks to us about the changes she’s been seeing in the wedding industry lately, specifically more eco-conscious weddings and couples being more mindful of their carbon footprint and having less waste.How to make style choice that are timeless.The incredible advice Michelle gives her clients when they’re feeling stressed or losing sight of what matters most. I LOVE this!!

131: Balance, Branding and Collaboration with Michelle Durpetti of Michelle Durpetti Events

She Creates Business

My guest today is Michelle Durpetti of Michelle Durpetti Events! Michelle wears so many hats including luxury wedding & event planner, hospitality group co-owner, equestrian, speaker and MORE. I was furiously taking notes during this interview because Michelle is full of tangible, raw and practical advice that I didn't want to miss! Today Michelle is spending time with us chatting about balance, branding and the importance of collaboration in our industry! Here's more about Michelle: I founded this company in 2008, founded on the principle that event planners must be good sources of creative ideas combined with practical experience, flexibility, and know-how to manage an event from beginning to end. Since then, I am proud to say that we have been privileged to work with corporate, social and non-profit clients, producing numerous events throughout the country. In 2010, I decided to expand our list of services to include wedding coordination and destination management in addition to event management and creative development. I am the third generation of entrepreneurial spirit and passionately dedicated to the evolution of my company and our perpetual commitment to excellence with each of our clients. I began my career with an internship at Jasculca/Terman & Associates in Chicago, a public relations firm specializing in PR and event management. A highlight of my time there was having the chance to be a part of the team that produced the dedication ceremony for the grand opening of the William J. Clinton presidential library in Little Rock, Arkansas. It was an incredible experience, and the lessons that I learned from it are ones that I still carry with me today, and apply to every event and wedding that I produce. While it may seem unrelated, learning how to produce a live event for a crowd of 30,000 people that was televised live across the globe provided me with a key component to what separates MDE from so many other planning firms out there; logistics management and timing are where the focus is centered.
