the experts in wedding planning

high-end service | personalized planning | meaningful experiences

Our mission is to provide inclusive professional assistance to couples in love and to deliver the best wedding experiences in Atlanta and beyond

Hi, I’m Matt Mitchell (he/him/his), owner and lead planner of award-winning Mitchell Event Planning.

Serving couples in Atlanta and beyond

Since 2017, I have served a diverse clientele within the wedding industry by providing high-end personalized weddings, one where you create your own traditions and make it a reflection of your love story. 

As a member of the LGTBQ+ community, I know what it feels like to be discriminated against, and my goal is to make sure that every couple I work with (traditional or non-traditional) feels heard, seen, and included. My clients come from many different orientations, religions, gender identities, abilities, and traditions. I’ve served LGBTQ+, later-in-life, Jewish, Hindu, and multicultural weddings, among others.

No matter who I’m serving, I always go above and beyond.

Although I’m a native Alabamian, I now live in Atlanta, Georgia (Buckhead) and have planned weddings throughout the state of Georgia and beyond. As a lover of travel, I embrace opportunities to travel anywhere my assistance is desired, and I look forward to being able to serve you.

Inclusive Wedding Planning

Because in the industry of love, there is no room for hate. 

“Matt Mitchell was an absolute pleasure to work with from the get-go.

He was very transparent with us in all aspects, and communication was very effective. He would keep us informed of problems when needed, and would just handle issues on his own when appropriate as well. He took the time to learn about Indian wedding traditions and events to execute the function well. He was punctual and always followed through on and exceeded expectations.

“To say Matt is the ABSOLUTE BEST is an understatement!

From day 1, when I had my initial call with Matt, I felt so comfortable and trusting in Matt to help make my vision come to life! Matt has such a calming demeanor about him, which helped me multiple times throughout the planning process, and, on my wedding day, to feel calm and at ease. Whenever I was stuck on a detail or needed direction, Matt always had the answer. When I needed recommendations on certain vendors, he always provided the best. Matt made sure that I felt supported throughout the process and that my wedding was just as important to him as it was to myself and my fiancé. Matt is second to none as a wedding planner, and I will forever be indebted to him for making my wedding dreams come true!


"Not only is Matt professional, but he’s also a true gem of a human that cares about his couples.

Matt was the best coordinator we could have ever asked and hoped to have. We hired him for his day-of services, but he was more than that. He set up multiple meetings prior to the event, helped coordinate vendor timelines, site walk-throughs, and site decor. On the day of our wedding, he (and his assistant) coordinated every single thing. They looked out for bridal parties, vendors, family members, and timelines. We would recommend Matt and Mitchell Event Planning time and time again. We loved him!
