about us

MB Wedding Design and Events is a leading boutique event design and planning company in the San Francisco Bay Area & Maui, Hawaii. Our clients are varied in culture and age but have one thing in common: they are seeking a creative, discerning design vision that can be seamlessly translated into an experience of depth, meaning and beauty on the day of their wedding or event. Since its inception in 2003 the company has designed and produced over 200 weddings and events in California, Hawaii and destinations worldwide. Our long-standing relationships with the event industry’s top vendors ensure a stress-free experience both during the design and planning process and on the day of the event. We work hand in hand with our client’s vendors to ensure that the vision we have carefully crafted with our client is well communicated, understood and brought to life.


Founder, Michelle Barrionuevo-Mazzini, brings a stylish, discerning design eye that has been carefully honed over her many years of both design and production for weddings and events. Michelle’s passion and forthrightness ensures clear communication while her groundedness and sharp focus is the driving force behind both her strategic and creative vision as well as impeccable attention to detail. She blends thoughtful practicality with innovative design, the result of which allows for creative ideas that are produced without a hitch. Warm, friendly and multifaceted, she carefully guides her clients in planning and designing an event that is unlike any other. She takes on a limited number of events each year to ensure that each client receives the requisite time and creative energy inherent in designing custom weddings and events.


Prior to founding the company Michelle planned corporate events, meetings and tradeshows, working with outside vendors and ensuring their production went according to both schedule and budget. Having lived in San Francisco and Maui, Michelle’s expert knowledge about every must-see and must-visit locale allows her to provide her clients and their guests with recommendations for a one-of-a-kind experience in both the city and on the island.


When she’s not designing weddings and events you can find Michelle cheering on her beloved San Francisco Giants at ATT Park, sipping on a Pisco Sour at local Peruvian hot spot Limón, or enjoying a Sunday cruise along the Embarcadero. Bilingual in both Spanish and English, Michelle has traveled extensively since she was a child visiting countries in Europe, Mexico, South America, Central America, the Caribbean as well as many of the US States.
