About Us

Welcome to the wonderful world of weddings! The Perfect Fairytale understands that planning a wedding can be a stressful time for most brides and grooms. We are here to help guide you through the planning process using our expertise and dedication to give you the perfect fairytale wedding of your dreams.


Michele Robb
Owner & Certified Wedding Planner

Michele was born and raised in Orange County. She has had a passion and love for wedding planning since she was a teenager. This year marks 10 years that she has been in the wedding industry. She started in 2007 by interning with a veteran planner, graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from CSUF in 2008, received a wedding planning certification from Cal Poly Pomona in 2010, and launched The Perfect Fairytale the day after the certification in March 2010.
Michele expanded her expertise in wedding planning as Editor and Creative Director for The Wedding Planner Magazine, located in Virginia. Her role consisted of planning styled shoots, writing the magazine’s content, and coordinating sales.
When Michele isn’t involved in “all things wedding,” she can be found spending time with her husband and newborn son, Cooper, who was born in July. In addition to family time, she loves working out (circuit training & spin class,) shopping (especially at Kate Spade and Kendra Scott,) and being outdoors soaking up the sun (yet trying to stay in the shade!!)
“I feel truly blessed to be doing what I absolutely love and hope that I can help make your wedding planning dreams the perfect fairytale.” –Michele

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will keep your paths straight.
-Proverbs 3: 5-6


Joanna Juarez
Lead Planner

Joanna was born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga and came on board as a Lead Planner with The Perfect Fairytale in 2015. She spent the last 14 years managing a local daycare. She was in charge of every detail at the daycare, including planning company events, which lead her into a smooth transition to wedding planning.

In addition to planning weddings, Joanna owns a candy and dessert bar company, Elan Sweets. Joanna loves everything about weddings and truly enjoys having her hands in a couple different areas.

When Joanna isn’t working, she loves spending her time with her husband and three boys. She is also in love with Starbucks, roses, music, crafting and organizing.

Audrey Garcia
Lead Assistant

Audrey was born and raised in Whittier. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development from CSULB in 2014.

She joined The Perfect Fairytale team in Spring 2016 and has never turned back! She has always loved attending weddings for family and friends, and loves that weddings are always fun, joyful and unique. She has a passion for event planning and watching everything come together perfectly.

When she is not working a wedding, she enjoys having date nights with Pedro, her soon to be husband, and is excited to be getting married on 9-30-17! They love to go dancing, try new restaurants and go on weekend getaways to Palm Springs.

Marissa Vera

Marissa was born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga and is new to The Perfect Fairytale team and the wedding industry. In 2003, after two years at Riverside Community College, she decided to take another route in life and landed a job in Accounting.

Although new to the wedding world, her assistance with events began while she worked for the RC Chamber of Commerce in 2010. In 2016, she was given the opportunity to assist a Lead Wedding Planner and since then she has a new love interest.

When she’s not assisting with weddings, she loves spending her days with family, her husband of 8 years and their 11-year-old yorkie terrier named Marty. She’s always up for the challenge when it comes to baking, especially macarons. Marissa also enjoys Zumba with her occasional trips to Starbucks.

Candice Ning
Lead Assistant

Candice will always be a New Jersey girl at heart but has called Southern California her home for the better part of a decade. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Media Production from Emerson College in 2009.

Candice comes from a musical theatre and entertainment production background, but has had a passion for weddings since she was a child. While planning her own wedding last summer to her wonderful husband, Lance, she found the opportunity to assist The Perfect Fairytale. She jumped at the chance and was quickly bitten by the bug to join the wedding industry!

In addition to assisting The Perfect Fairytale, she is an event consultant for a local rental company. She also owns an Etsy Shop – Stunning Charm Shop – that sells printable wedding decor.

When she’s not working on events, she enjoys going to Anaheim Ducks games with her husband and spending time with their nieces and nephews.

Rebekah Bahra
Assistant & Blogger

Rebekah is one of our newest assistants who recently moved down to Southern California from Lake Tahoe. She is a SoCal native but acquired her degrees in Psychology and Recreation Administration up North at Chico State. While there, she fell in love with the wedding industry as she worked with the 530 Bride. Prior to that position, she worked as part of the events staff at Southlands Church.

Her favorite part about weddings are the details. She loves how each little piece can come together like a perfectly curated puzzle to represent the love and admiration each couple has for one another.

When she is not dreaming about gorgeous venues or preparing the perfect table setting, you can catch her on a running trail, sipping espresso with a good book, or working on a new DIY project. She loves all things outdoors and is always finding new places to adventure to.
