Michelle Borrero

Certified Planner

Hi there! Thank you for taking a moment to learn about me and my company.
I have been a planner for as long as I can remember. As a child, I created detailed itineraries for family vacations, reunions, and birthday parties. As I grew older, friends and neighbors began requesting my assistance with their own events. I have over 22 years in the hospitality industry. I have worked for the A Florist, Hilton, Marriott, and Radisson Hotels to name a few.

It was not until I began planning my own wedding that I realized my obsession with all things wedding-related. I enjoyed negotiating with venues and vendors to obtain the best prices for my husband and me.  I delighted in researching every little detail and moment of the wedding and then preparing a timeline and master plan to bring it all together. I love helping make your dreams come true!

In sharing my interest in weddings with recently engaged couples, I realized that many of them were unsure or overwhelmed by the wedding planning process. It was at that point that I realized I had a skill – one that I had been developing for many years – and I began helping to plan weddings and special events as a hobby. I decided to turn my indescribable joy and passion for wedding and event planning into a full-time career… and Precious Moments Events was born!

Helping couples plan their weddings is something that I find extremely exciting and rewarding, and I work tirelessly to ensure that level of energy and enthusiasm is reflected in every event that I have the privilege of orchestrating. It would be my greatest pleasure to help you make your dream wedding or special event a reality. I look forward to meeting you!


Nelson Borrero Jr.

Lead Designer

Hi there! Thank you for taking a moment to learn about me.
I started my career out as an executive chef and was there for 10 years. I understand not only the back of the house but the front of the house also. Which is key when executing wedding and events. I then moved on to being a  designer and craftsman,  I have over 20 years’ experience in designing.

If you can dream it, I can build it!

Striving for meticulous details of your memorable day or event is the essence of my motivation to make sure I produce quality workmanship.   I love assisting with the floor plan to ensure that everything will fit perfectly.  In addition, I have a passion for building wedding and event furniture. I look forward to meeting you and making your vision come to life!

Christine Bouchard

Coordinator

Hi there! I am originally from Rhode Island but am a Florida native! Was born in Miami and moved up to New England to be closer to my big Irish Catholic Family!I went to school at Johnson & Wales University for a degree in Event management – I love all aspects of the planning process! After school, I completed internships in Charlotte and lived there for a while but it was during the economic crisis…so my parents convinced me to move down to Sarasota.

Favorite part of an event – for a wedding it is when the groom sees her for the very first time – I know everyone looks at the bride but I am always looking at his face! For other events its seeing the clients vision come to life – something that was an idea that comes to full fruition is truly an accomplishment for me.

What am I passionate about? Events and hospitality! I have been in hospitality since I was 16 years old in restaurants and have been on the catering and event side for over 15 years. It gets into your blood and its something you cant leave.
