Michelle, the founder of Pink Monkey Events, started this company for her pure love of event planning and coordination. As far back as Michelle can remember anytime she went to an event everyone always knew which gift was from her. Her creativity, sense of style and attention to detail always stands out as she loves to decorate and make each gift special and unique for that person. She is known for her great sense of style and has even been called “mini Martha” on quite a few occasions. Her attention to detail never goes unnoticed. The same has gone for Michelle’s career. Michelle has been working as a Special Events Coordinator and in Office Management starting since 1993.Read more

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!!!
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!
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!!
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!!
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!

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.
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.
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!
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.
I hope that all is well and that you were able to get some rest… just wanted to thank you for sat night… we all enjoyed it and most of all so did my husband… everyone was saying what a great job you did and people were also impressed with the food 🙂
I had a great time… we also loved your photographer. It was a pleasure working with you. I hope we will have more events to work on!!!!!
Thank you for a very interesting and informative program. After the program on Friday, I picked up a goodie bag before I left in the afternoon… Loved everything in it.
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,
Thanks for a very enjoyable holiday party. Amazing job on organizing it!
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.
Everything was perfect. As usual you organized a wonderful event where everyone had a great time. You never disappoint.
It was perfect. I got everything just the way I would have wanted it.
Michelle – Thanks for a very well run conference
The conference went really well… congrats.
Great Conf. Thank you! Please tell everyone that the content and the presentations were first class.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
