Design…

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but when Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort hire you as a designer, you know you have a special talent.
Combining her love of celebrations with her exceptional design skills, Cathrina Dionisio is a coveted member of the Michele Butler Events team. Her sense of beautiful artistic concepts, intricate detailing, and brilliance in making it all come to life is beyond compare. With Cathrina, a couple doesn’t have to worry about the look of their event – she can have all confidence it will be simply stunning.

Cathrina begins with one or several details – whether that is a color, a city, a style, or a story and then beautifully weaves tangible details together to make an entire event or wedding concept around it. Clients receive actual design conceptualizations complete with color schemes, font selections and décor inspirations. This unique design composition makes Cathrina a dynamic wedding and event planner.

As a little girl, Cathrina dreamed of one day becoming a wedding planner after watching, “Father of the Bride”. Now that her dream has come true, she hopes to some day coordinate a wedding for a similar type film to inspire other children to dream big!

In addition to weddings, Cathrina has a passion for the community. Shopping locally for both personal and professional products and services has also become dear to her heart and she takes careful consideration of this when working with each couple.

With corporations such as Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, and Publix Supermarkets part of her design resume, Cathrina is not only a first rate designer, but a true professional recognized by these outstanding companies. For those fortunate enough to work with Cathrina, one can expect vivid creativity, genuine thought, and stellar coordination for a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Shine…

It’s all about your glow. To Kara Sylvia, there is one thing she sets out to accomplish for each event and it goes beyond making you shine in front of others. To her, it’s ultimately about the unconditional happiness and exponential joy that you feel from experiencing your dreams coming true.

As an event planner for four years with previous work experience at Four Seasons Hotel Beverly Hills, Kara plays an integral role at Michele Butler Events in ensuring a smooth and flawless day. Her eye for perfection is exceptional as she truly considers what a client (as the host of the event) desires others to experience. A napkin lying on the floor? A fork out of place? A light bulb out in the chandelier? These may seem like small, unimportant details, but with Kara, these nuances are nowhere to be found.

Kara’s keen sense of excellence is rivaled only by her ability to make all event hosts and guests feel comfortable. She is admired as a sensitive mediator when working with challenging differences of opinion, striving to ensure everyone feels heard, appreciated, and loved during such a joyful time. Her goal is simple…she wants everyone to “shine”.

An enchanting passion of Kara’s is her love of Africa and her travel to explore this stunning area of the world. The beauty of the land, the people, and the animals have touched her soul and she dreams of sharing this love with her husband and children in the years to come.
