Our Story

Growing up I was taught that dreams come true when you believe. With hard work, passion, and support anything is possible. Being able to make other people’s dreams come true is something that I have always strived for. After planning my own birthday parties and friends parties throughout high school, I realized that I can create those special unforgettable moments with my events.

By bringing people together and creating something unique that will hopefully inspire them in their own lives. I decided my sophomore year of high school that I wanted to be a wedding planner. Since then that dream has evolved and grown into what is now                      Alexandra Michele Events.

Alexandra Michele Bown (Feo)

Alexandra has aspired to owning a wedding planning business since she was 15 years old. While the exact vision has changed over the years, her goal to make other people’s dreams a reality is still the most important element. In order to pursue this dream she studied abroad during the spring of 2016 in London. There she interned with a bridal boutique and studied at The London College of Fashion. With four event/wedding planning positions behind her, she has learned to think on her feet and to always keep an open mind. 
Alexandra graduated December 2017 from Drake University in Des Moines with a B.S.B.A. She completed a double major in entrepreneurial management and marketing with a concentration in sales management. She is a certified professional bridal consultant with ABC (The Association of Bridal Consultants). Alexandra believes that it is incredibly important that a wedding planner have experience in every aspect of a wedding. She has worked as a event manager at well known Midwest venues such as: The Drake Hotel in Chicago, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, WI and Geneva National Resort in Lake Geneva, WI. With over 100+ weddings and 5 years of wedding and bridal experience, AND as a 2022 bride herself, Alexandra is ready to help your wedding day dreams come true!! 

Susan Feo

As our creative director, Susan brings over 20 years of experience to our team. Susan believes that the most important part of planning an event is the theme. Once the theme is established she is in her craft room designing decorations, favors and all of the little details that bring everything together. One of her favorite ways to design new decor is to upcycle things from around the house and give it a new purpose. Some of her most loved themes include Disney Christmas, Baseball birthday’s, and a BBQ themed baby shower (BabyQ).
