about us

MB Wedding Design and Events is a boutique planning and design company serving the San Francisco Bay Area, Orange County and 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 special event. 


Since its inception in 2003, the company has produced over 300 weddings and events in California, Hawaii, Mexico and destinations worldwide. As a premiere San Francisco wedding planner and Hawaii wedding planner, our goal is to create a memorable event whether in the city or by the sea that will make your heart swoon and leave your guests in awe. We specialize in destination weddings and multicultural celebrations.


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 grounded nature and sharp focus are the driving force behind her creative vision. As an experienced planner, she brings attention to detail and an overall strategic plan to make any event run smoothly. She blends thoughtful practicality with innovative design, the result of which allows for creative ideas that are produced without a hitch. Michelle takes on a limited number of events each year to ensure that each of her clients receive the requisite time and creative energy inherent in designing a custom wedding or event. 


When she’s not planning events, you can find Michelle cheering on her beloved San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park, sipping on a Pisco sour at local Peruvian hot spot, Limon, snorkeling on the beautiful island of Maui, or enjoying life with her family at the happiest place on earth, Disneyland! Michelle currently shares her time between San Francisco and Orange County, and is available for travel worldwide. Bilingual in both English in Spanish, Michelle has traveled extensively since she was a child visiting countries in Europe, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
