Owner & Creative Director
A little off-beat, but always on point!
Nicole has been planning and coordinating weddings+events for her clients for over twelve years.
This elementary education teacher didn't expect to become a wedding and event planner but quickly discovered that the logistics, details and creativity to plan events would be so rewarding. Being able to see an event come to fruition brings Nicole great joy.
While every event Nicole plans, produces or coordinates may be different, her mindset is the same: consider everything and overlook nothing. She finds inspiration in music, art, and Costco. She works hard to be a one-stop shop for wedding ideas, education, and a calming approach to the wedding planning process. Viewing a wedding like a puzzle, she can see what's needed and welcomes collaboration from her clients.
Nicole's superpower is her ability to get her clients to truly represent themselves in their wedding day, understanding what they want the wedding day to be, even if the couple can't put it into words. The end result is always having guests and couples say this was a really great wedding.
She is more than a kick-ass yogi with an obsession for Tex-Mex, Nicole is also a HOT grandmother who will celebrate her 50th birthday soon, and loves sports and outside activities. When she is not making wedding day magic happen, she can be found at home enjoying homemade smoothies or coffee, watching HGTV or learning how to make smart investments from her retired parents.

without feeling overwhelmed.
As a Master Certified Wedding Planner, inclusivity is at the forefront of everything I do. My mission is to create weddings that celebrate the unique love story of every couple, regardless of their background, identity, or orientation.
I am committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all couples, including those who identify as LGBTQIA+, people of color, differently-abled individuals, and those from all faiths and cultures. I believe that everyone deserves to have their love story told and celebrated, and I strive to make that a reality for each of my clients.
I believe that diversity and inclusion are essential to creating a more just and equitable world. Through my work, I hope to promote understanding and respect for all people, regardless of their differences. Whether you are planning a traditional wedding, a modern celebration, or something in between, I am dedicated to creating an experience that is meaningful, authentic, and inclusive for you and your loved ones.
Thank you for considering me as your wedding planner. I look forward to working with you to create a celebration that reflects your unique love and values.
