Wedding planners plan parties for their personal lives too and today’s event is just that – the birthday party of one very talented destination wedding planner, Michelle Rago.  Michelle’s home base is New York City so this swanky daytime affair took place at the Norwood Club where she and friends took over the perfect indoor-outdoor space.

The balloon and flower filled party was an intimate gathering of friends and loved ones with a French theme to welcome them for treats of cheese, french fries, and fabulous desserts!
