"Nicole is literally the best wedding planner.

- Elle & Jarrod

She did not just meet our expectations; she blew them out of the water. Our guests (and my husband and I) were in awe. Everything went so smoothly in every single event she planned. Not to mention the vendors that she recommended were absolutely amazing. There was not a single stress thanks to Nicole. Everyone said it was the most beautiful wedding they’d ever been to. It was all due to Nicole. We cannot thank her enough!”

"Nicole is a fantastic wedding planner...

and so easy to work with! She was always accommodating with my extremely busy schedule and made planning a destination wedding not only relatively easy, but also fun! Throughout the yearlong planning process, she kept us on track without making us feel overwhelmed.

- Tiffany & Maksim

"Our wedding day in Paris was by far the most special day of our lives.

- Anokina & Patrick

Nicole and her team literally made our dreams come true. From start to finish we could not have asked for a more dedicated visionary working to make everything happen. When it comes to planning a destination wedding, it might be stressful for couples to manage all the details from distance. Nicole went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I have the most magical day."
