Michelle and her team are fantastic and I could not have imagined doing my wedding this past December without them. Michelle was recommended to me by my venue, the Central Park Boathouse, and it is easy to see why. She knows the venue inside and out and she is a seasoned planner. Although I only hired her as a "month of" planner, we were in frequent contact for months leading up to the wedding and I always found her to be very responsive. Michelle and her team really shone on the actual big day, however, making sure that the day went as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend Michelle and her entire team!

Michelle of Pink Monkey Events and her employees were a huge, huge help in making my wedding day perfect. She did not once steer me wrong with vendors, decor ideas, you-name-it. She made sure everything ran as smoothly as possible the day of, and she handled all the the big and small "disasters" that cropped up so that I didn’t have to. Hire her; you won’t be disappointed.

Michelle and her staff are just amazing – my wedding was perfect and I could not have pulled it off without them. They handled everything and made me a beautiful bride on my wedding day – no responsibilites but to get dressed and have the best day of my life. I can’t thank them enough for planning my dream wedding. The baby shower is next!!!

Stephanie

Michelle and her team did a fabulous job of ensuring that our wedding day (and rehearsal) went perfectly smoothly. Michelle recommended vendors for us to talk to, and we ended up using most of her recommendations and were thrilled with them! When we met a couple of days before the wedding for a final meeting, Michelle pointed out a couple of last minute things that we had forgotten. Instead of adding them to our to-do list, Michelle and her team got to work and got it all done! We had lots of moving parts for the wedding, and Michelle made sure that we never felt the stress of keeping everything coordinated during the night (which I’m sure was no small feat!). We were able to enjoy every second of our wedding with our families and friends and trusted all of the ‘day of’ details to Michelle. She is an asset to any event!

Gabrielle

Michelle and Pink Monkey Events were AMAZING to work with. She was able to give me a fabulous and stress free wedding. With her input and creativity we were able to design my vision and bring it to life. If you are looking for someone to be there for you at a drop of a dime, who’s fun, energetic and talented then Michelle at Pink Monkey Events is the answer! My whole entire family and wedding party loved her and working with her. She was able to allow us to enjoy our big day and be stress free. I would recommend Pink Money Events to anyone who is looking for a stylish, fabulous and stress free event!! I can’t wait to work with her and her team again in the future!!

Jamie

I have to say that Michelle was the best money spent on my wedding. She was so helpful and really kept your mind at ease. I didn’t worry about a thing and she thought of everything that I did not. It was a pleasure working with her. She was extremely reliable and trustworthy. I valued her opionion and her ideas. The day of is very stressful and she does not allow you to stress at all from beginning to end. All of my girls thought I was on drugs of some sort LOL!!

Briana

Michelle and her team of Pink Monkeys are great! Michelle really took time to get to know us and help to hone our vision of the wedding. She introduced us to some great vendors and was there every step of the way to help us save money when we could and get the most of what we did invest in.

Pink Monkey just planned my September 2009 wedding and honestly, there was no way I could have done it without them. They kept track of every last detail, anticipated potential issues before they even came up, contributed tons of great ideas and executed the day perfectly. Michelle the owner is friendly, quick to respond and really goes out of her way to make your dream day happen. She did for me!

Liz and Jeremy

Michelle is the best wedding planner any bride can ask for. Her creative design, attention to details and her ability to resolve any unforeseen issues along the way created the wedding I have always dreamed of. As a bride, one thing i most appreciated was learn to trust her judgment and enjoy the wedding planning as a wonderful and stress-free experience.

Boey and William

Pink Monkey Events was amazing, and went above and beyond to help me out during my wedding planning. My wedding day was "glitch free" due to the professionalism of this company.

Monica and Danny

Michelle and her team at Pink Monkey Events were professional, friendly and creative. They addressed all of our requests with a level of detail we could not have managed on our own. Michelle helped make our wedding day perfect!

Gail and Mark

Michelle is the BEST wedding planner! She is very creative and responsive and energetic. She is very on top of things and know all the best vendors for our budget. She draws idea and provide suggestions based on my husband and my personality and never force anything on us. Her smile and enthusiasm for our wedding are contegious. Her attention to detail amazed me. Who thought of everything? Michelle does!!! Her staffs are equally great! Together her team made my dream wedding came true. I could not have imagine a better or more stress free wedding. Like I told everyone, "without Michelle, the only thing certain I will have at my wedding is food. I’m not even sure if there will be fork and knife!" Too bad, wedding is not the kind of repeating event…otherwise Michelle will see me all the time wanting to work with her again and again. Can’t thank her enough for such a wonderful wedding.

TJ and Paul

Michelle,

I can’t begin to thank you enough for the fantastic floral arrangements you made for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. Your work brought an elegant touch to the party that I couldn’t have imagined. My parents as well as the guests were very impressed and thanks to you I came out looking like a superstar. While I’m at it I might add that it was a sheer pleasure working with you. Your professionalism and refreshing attitude made a great experience out of something I had dreaded. Count on being called again for all our future events.

With Deep Appreciation,

Michelle,

I just wanted to say thank you again for going out of your way to help me find a hotel for NYC for the conference. I really liked the Chambers Hotel. I also like the little hamburger place in the hotel.

I thought that you all did an amazing job with the conference.

Thanks again

Hi – for what it is worth I just wanted to say how great I thought the conference was last week. Everything seemed to go really well – I know from a presenting point of view it was the best venue (and the easiest in terms of having the monitor and wireless remove to turn the slides) – and I thought the dinner and the casino night were great.

It really was an outstanding job… everybody is talking about it.

Pink Monkey Events went above and beyond for us, and they were worth every single penny! Pink Monkey was the very first vendor we booked; Michelle and the Pink Monkey team were the most amazing source of information and support. The consistent positive attitude, passion and excitement were infectious. Michelle and her team made the wedding planning experience enjoyable, and their attention to detail and wealth of knowledge is invaluable. Pink Monkey not only listened to my ideas, they also heard me. Michelle and her team managed to take my thoughts and create beautifully designed (and impeccably styled) events.

My wedding was more beautiful and enjoyable than I had ever dreamed of, and it is all because of the dedication and hard work of Pink Monkey Events. This committed and talented group of individuals made sure that every single aspect of our wedding weekend (we had a multiple day/multiple event destination wedding) ran smoothly and perfectly. Guests are still talking about how amazing the entire weekend was, and how beautiful every single event was.

I feel so lucky to have found Pink Monkey Events and to have worked with them. Thank you Pink Monkey Events!

Stephanie and Dave

Michelle:

You throw a great party. The Kreinik clan had an awesome time time. Thanks for taking all of those pictures of my kids. You helped prevent a major tantrum. Thanks again.

Regards,

Michelle,

Congrats again on throwing such a successful Avenue event.

We can’t say enough about the job Michelle of Pink Monkey Events did in decorating our home for a housewarming cocktail party we recently held. Her flower arrangements were absolutely amazing, and all of the creative ideas and details she added really brought out the beauty of our new home. Her enthusiasm for her job is incredible. We would use Pink Monkey Events again in a heartbeat.

Lisa and Rob Patchen

Michelle was an incredibly attentive person who really became our friend throughout the process. She is warm and thoughtful. Excellent at what she does. Very passionate about her job- works tirelessly.

Valerie and Alex

We love Pink Monkey Events!

After our engagement last year, the first thing on our wedding to-do list was to find a fantastic event planner. It did not take long to figure out that Michelle and her team at Pink Monkey Events were the perfect fit for us. From our very first meeting with Michelle, we felt completely comfortable and confident in her ability to bring our ideas to life. While working on our wedding, Pink Monkey also planned, and found the perfect venue for, our engagement party. The party was everything we hoped for and so much more – beautiful, fun and set an incredible tone for our wedding! Throughout the entire planning process, Michelle understood our vision and remained patient with us. Regardless of the situation, she was there to help and make us feel at ease. Michelle was always available and armed with creative ideas to make each detail special, whether by offering suggestions herself or introducing us to her absolutely incredible vendors! On top of planning our perfect wedding, what probably stood out most about Michelle and her team was their high level of care and professionalism. I always felt that they genuinely wanted to make each element of our wedding flawless and exactly what we were looking for. Michelle took our ideas and not only brought them to life but enhanced them tenfold. Her passion and dedication to her work is undeniable and her enthusiasm was a constant joy to be around. Our wedding was beyond spectacular and even managed to exceed our expectations thanks to Michelle and her team at Pink Monkey Events.

Julie and Andrew

Miracle Worker!

My husband and I got married in June and people are still talking about our wedding thanks to Michelle and her crew at Pink Monkey Events. We have literally received multiple comments from friends and family that it was one of the best weddings they ever attended. Michelle is extremely creative, detail oriented and such a pleasure to work with. The second we sat down with Michelle, she put me at ease and I didn’t have any stress on my wedding day due to her close attention to every single detail. Our wedding far exceeded our expectations and we would recommend Pink Monkey Events to anyone for any event.

Michaela and Scott

Well worth it!

My husband and I were referred to Pink Monkey events from a friend of mine who worked with her for her wedding. From our first meeting with Michelle, we knew that this was a good match for us in our planning process. She is very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. She knew what questions to ask, how to make us feel comfortable, and how to make our vision a reality come our wedding day. We found the process of finding the right vendors for us very easy. Often we went with the first vendor we met with because Michelle was very in tune with our interests and personalities that would be a good match. And every decision we made was exactly what we were looking for. On the day of our wedding, August 2, 2013, our decision to work with Pink Monkey Events was even further justified. We felt very little pressure and anxiety with the help of Michelle and her associates. They were in control of everything, helped in our planning and scheduling, and were with us the whole way through. Not to mention they helped us with a couple of issues, such as a zipper disaster and a near fainting incident!!! Given all of this, we truly believe that this was well worth the investment, at a reasonable price, and one that we would definitely recommend to others. We continue to get compliments about how wonderful our wedding day was from our friends and family. Michelle and Pink Monkey events did a great job throughout the year planning and on the day of the wedding and we truly appreciate all of their efforts.

Awesome with a side of Amazing…

It was certainly a pleasure to work with Michelle and her team. Michelle is extremely knowledgeable and her team was great. She really helped us think through our wedding theme (vintage travel). Additionally, she put us in touch with some great vendors. Our invitations were nothing short of AMAZING. The invitations required quite a bit of work- putting them together, creating labels and mailing boxes. She did it all! I simply didn’t have time to work on the invitations myself- but they turned out beautifully. She went to all of the important vendor meetings and found ways to save us money. She found a great place for our rehearsal dinner. We had a unique wedding rehearsal that involved a traditional Ghanaian theme- so it was great that she found a place that we could have to ourselves. She was great on the day of the wedding. One of my bridesmaids had a dress catastrophe. She literally sewed her into the dress. The day flowed smoothly and things went really well. There was one problem with the transportation- but it wasn’t her fault. The limo bus that we rented had some sort of malfunction, but replacement transportation was arranged without me knowing that there had been a problem. Overall, I think she was great. Things were organized and the day was truly perfect. My grandmother even commented on how amazing she was, and my grandma is one tough cookie to please. In short there were a few minor hiccups but nothing that I can honestly complain about. She’s great at what she does. Overall, I think Pink Monkey is a great choice.

Stephanie T

We Love Pink Monkey!

Michelle and the Pink Monkey crew made our wedding fantastic. It was such a relief to know that all we had to do was have an amazing day. There is so much to think about and Michelle is totally on top of everything. She printed the programs/menus, she came to the rehearsal and was in touch with all of our vendors. Not only that, but she was always really lovely and incredibly enthusiastic! It was nice that no matter how stressful things got or how long the to-do list was, there was always someone there telling me that it’s all good and everything will get done. She recommended our videographer and bakery and we LOVED both of them. Michelle has a million connections and knows everyone in the industry, so she’s an amazing resource. She can also get great discounts because she gives all of the vendors so much business. Pink Monkey also made our favors (hot chocolate) and set up our escort cards using this really, really cool old fashioned gate. It was incredible – everyone was commenting on how unique it was! Basically – if there is anything you need at all, Pink Monkey will deliver. Michelle even took my (now) husband to his tux fitting! Overall we are beyond thrilled we went with Michelle and Pink Monkey. Our wedding was an absolutely perfect day and we couldn’t have done it without her!

Gillian and Mike

Thank You Pink Monkey!

Pink Monkey Events is fantastic! I originally was just looking for a "day of" coordinator to help on the wedding day so that the whole wedding party could enjoy the day. I ended up working with Michelle a few months before the wedding. Michelle and her team was fantastic and they put all the wedding decor together while I was getting ready and photos were being taken. They were also awesome at executing our ideas and putting it all together. Michelle also has a great sense of humor that made me feel at ease right before my ceremony. She was also very hands on when it comes to getting the job done! We are so thankful for all her help and would recommend their service to any bride and groom!

Jilliana

Pink Monkey was great!!

Michelle and her staff at pink monkey were amazing! Not only are the very nice people, but our wedding would not have been the success it was without them. My Husband and I had to do the majority of the planning for our Manhattan wedding while living overseas in England. We really needed someone who had great connections in the city, and who really understood what type of wedding we wanted, and Michelle was that person. She connected us to some great vendors, and had great ideas and suggestions. She paid attention to every single detail. Michelle helped us create a truly beautiful wedding that was exactly what we wanted. On the day of the wedding she was such a huge help. She kept things organized, and made sure it all ran as smoothly as possible. Michelle and her staff did a great job, I don’t know what we would have done without them!!

Dream Came True!

My husband and I met Michelle and her Pink Monkey Events Team a year before our set wedding date. Michelle transformed our vision and dream into reality on the day of our wedding. It was the most wonderful day of our lives and the Pink Monkey Events team guided us through the entire process – from venue selection & vendor negotiation to theme design. Michelle’s personal touch in all aspects our of wedding also included designing our bouquets and center piece arrangements. On the day of the wedding, I did not have one worry about any wedding details and I was able to thoroughly enjoy every element that her team has put together seamlessly. Wedding is once in a lifetime experience and I was lucky to have met Michelle. I wholeheartedly recommend the Pink Monkey Events to any bride-to-be.

Boey and William

So Thankful!

Pink Monkey Events really made my wedding experience fun and exciting. I originally was just looking for a "day of" coordinator to just help on the wedding day so that the whole wedding party and parents could just enjoy the day. I recommend this to anyone getting married, because the last thing you want on your special day is to worry about vendors calling you or your parents. This company took all the stress out of the whole day, so we could just enjoy it! Needless to say my wedding day was perfect because of the owner Michelle and her team. I ended up also using Pink Monkey before the wedding to tie up any loose ends I had. Michelle had amazing contacts that led me to book the big vendors I still needed. Just like Michelle, all the companies had fun people to work with that made every minute enjoyable and stress-free! Also I had price limitations to deal with and Michelle really made my dreams come true on a budget with her creativity. And that is why I am SO THANKFUL I found Pink Monkey Events. Now when I hear stories from my friends about there wedding planning and wedding day, I realize how lucky I was!

Sandra and Danny

Best Wedding Planner!

One word for Pink Monkey Events: AMAZING! Its because of Michelle, we had the wedding of our dreams. Our day was stress free and everything flowed seamlessly. Even our guests noticed how well it flowed together and all of the detail we put into it. Walking into the reception area and seeing everything come together for the first time was even better than I had imagined. It was perfect! Michelle and her team are organized, respectful, understanding, fun, creative, personable…I can go on forever. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is planning any sort of event. Thank you so much again, I miss you Michelle!

If You Can Dream It…

Michelle from Pink Monkey Events can deliver! I had the pleasure of enlisting Michelle’s help remotely, as I lived in California and was trying to plan a Manhattan. For months, Michelle acted as my eyes and ears as I, the nervous bride, worked with her to plan out a wedding in a city on the other side of the country I knew hardly anything about! It was definitely a lot of trust to place in somebody I, at that time, had only met over the phone, but about 15 minutes into our very first consultation, her confidence, creativity and abundant energy won that trust easily. All I needed to do was to email Michelle a picture of my Hanfu wedding dress, and she totally "got it." Michelle was with my fiancé and I every step of the way, and delivered truly astonishing things on a short timeline and within our budget. She attended both our ceremony and reception (which was across town) to make sure things went off without a hitch. And there were no hitches to be found. Oh, and our wedding/reception? It was just your typical Traditional Chinese Orthodox Jewish wedding complete with kosher Chinese food…and it was absolutely gorgeous! The bottom line: if you need a wedding coordinator who’s on the ball and strives to deliver exactly what you want, look no further than Pink Monkey Events.

Cynthia and Greg

When I got engaged last July, the first thing I did was start looking for wedding planners. I actually work in the wedding industry so I knew that working with me wasn’t going to be easy. On one hand, after being surrounded by brides/weddings for the past 7 years, I was almost “weddinged-out” and wanted to basically hand my wedding planning over to someone else to deal with. On the other hand, I knew that the kind of wedding I wanted wasn’t going to be easy to plan and that I had some fairly specific ideas about what I wanted.

 

I made a few appointments with established wedding planners I had worked with in the past and for good measure, googled and read reviews to make appointments with a few newcomers.

 

After an exhausting day of being interviewed about my wedding and receiving totally extravagant and ridiculous quotes, I met Michelle.

 

Walking into her townhouse/office was so calming and I immediately felt better. She had comfy couches and an array of snacks and drinks out on the table (which seems like a small thing but after meetings with planners who just sat me down at a desk in their office and were on their laptop the whole time, it was nice to feel like someone prepared for me). There was a slideshow of ideas going on the big screen on the wall that had been prepared just for our wedding based on what I told her when we talked on the phone the day before.

 

We chatted for about an hour. She was incredibly friendly and warm and I felt like she would be on top of the details without being pushy. As compared to some other planners who charge a percentage of what you are spending on your wedding AND limit you as to the amount of e-mails etc, you can send them, Michelle was a breath of fresh air. Her package was basically all-inclusive and was a flat rate, not based on how much we were spending. I signed up the next day.

 

During the planning process, Michelle and her team were amazing. Not annoying, not pushy, very laid back and took care of a lot of details behind the scenes without me having to deal with them. I could not have asked for a more fun planning process and I was able to enjoy every minute without being bogged down by details. Michelle screened every vendor and presented us with the top choices in every category that fit into our budget and style. She made all the appointments and dealt with all the contracts and negotiations. She was so good a picking vendors that I booked the first vendor in every category without needing to see more.

 

On the day of our wedding, Michelle was truly a gift. I knew (from talking to people afterwards) that there were things Michelle dealt with and catastrophes she was able to avoid without me knowing anything. I partied, ate, and enjoyed my day without having to deal with ANYTHING. She basically ran the entire day. My fiance and I agree she was worth every penny and so much more. She seemed to be everywhere at once – managing the flow of the day, dealing with guest questions, wrangling vendors and setting up photo shots. One second she’s cuing the 2nd course and the next minute she’s on the floor buckling someone’s shoe before a picture – no joke. One of my bridesmaids complained off-handidly about her feet hurting and Michelle produced a pair of silver flats she had a bunch of just in case. We had a perfect wedding day and enjoyed every bit of it and 100% of the credit goes to her.

Emily and Dave

You did a fabulous job for the Baby Shower for Valerie – it was a perfect room, beautifully done and the food was delicious. It meant so much to her.
