Sophisticated Wedding Planning & Design for Exquisite Celebrations


There is one thing nobody tells you when you get engaged

The details never come together on their own.

With 1000+ tiny details to choose from before you say I do, planning on your own is not an option.

Instead, you need a wedding planner and designer you can trust. Someone with an impeccable eye
for design, unmatched organizational skills…

And the knowledge and experience needed to create a simply brilliant event.

Your Perfect Guide

Experienced Detroit Michigan Wedding Planner

Hello, I’m Nicola.

While this is your only wedding, I have had the pleasure of managing the details for nearly 500 events.

So, you can trust me to guide you through a personalized journey that allows you to enjoy your engagement and be a guest at your own elegant wedding.

After 125+ 5-star reviews, that fact is simply undeniable.

Exceeds All Your Expectations

We cannot recommend Nicola and her full-planning wedding services enough – she brought expert project management, creative vision and insight, a calming presence, and really terrific counsel to us throughout the yearlong wedding planning process. During our first meeting, Nicola shared that she wanted us to have the freedom to be “guests at our own wedding”; now 1-month after the wedding, we reflect and say that she delivered that (and more)! 

Although the wedding and reception were important to us, we also felt a responsibility to showcase the best parts of Detroit, and Nicola helped us do that with her deep knowledge of the city, some of its most-talented vendors, and unique ways to incorporate it all together.

We thoroughly feel that working with Nicola was among the best decisions and investments that we made.
