We had the good fortune of connecting with Michelle Gainey and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Michelle, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
Not worrying about what anyone else is doing. It’s important to set your own path based on your experience, skills, and talents. I think too often people are too concerned with what their competitors are doing and make bad decisions based on that.

What should our readers know about your business?
With the mission to inspire others to Dream, Love, and Celebrate life, I started Atlanta based Lemiga Events nearly two decades ago, serving as a premier event planning boutique specializing in stylish and glamorous affairs. I have designed events around the globe that always include a bit of Modern Southern Hospitality. Every event is beautiful, but the heart behind them is their distinguishing factor–that essence of hospitality that allows guests to feel welcome, seen, loved, and included. This purpose led approach to designing and planning events fuels my passion to create rooms filled with meaningful details and shape awe-inspiring moments that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Eat at JCT Kitchen Have drinks at Ponce City Market Date night with Society 414 Stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’m so proud of B Collective Magazine and what they are doing to highlight minority owned businesses in the events industry.
