Elopements & Intimate Weddings

meet michaela


I’m the heart behind Lovely & Planned. I have specialized in elopements and intimate boutique weddings in Amsterdam and Dubai, the two cities I feel deeply connected with, and have chosen as my homes of choice.

My love for details is at the core of everything I do. I feel that the smallest things have the most significant impact. So, I pay particular attention to your unique love story and blend your personal touches with a timeless, sophisticated aesthetic to create a one-of-a-kind wedding. 

Elopements and weddings can feel overwhelming at times. My utmost goal is to alleviate that stress! From sourcing the right vendors to creating a styling plan to dealing with logistics and timelines- that’s what I’m here for. I’ll guide you through the planning process, and I’m on hand with help and advice at all times. That way, you have time and energy to focus on what matters most - celebrating your love for each other!
When I’m not planning weddings, I love traveling the world, go out for Sunday brunches, reading captivating books, but above all, I love spending time with my husband Georg and our adorable Spitz-Spaniel dog Jaspi.  

I’m so grateful for being surrounded by so many unique love stories on a daily basis, and I can’t wait to get to know you and find out more about yours!

for couples who believe a wedding isn't about size, but about the love for each other.

A wedding should always be about your love and not about the size of your guest list! Being a wedding planner for elopements and intimate weddings allows me to focus exactly on that - your story, your love!

My passion for organizing is deeply rooted - creating timelines, ticking items off a checklist, or designing a styling plan. Few things fuel my wedding planner heart as much as keeping things on track and bringing your vision to life.

I love being part of the wedding planning journey to the point of my couples saying
 ‘I do’. For me, there will always be something magical about these two words. Saying ‘I do’ is filled with countless possibilities, and being part of that brings me incredible joy.
