a planning experience.

Nicola is AMAZING!!! Cannot recommend her enough for Full Service Wedding Planning. She is very detailed and goes the extra mile for you. We had to change our date 3 times and she was so helpful and understanding through it all. Our special day was perfect. Nicola took care of everything and we got to fully enjoy our day without any stress. She has so much experience and she knows the best vendors to work with! Highly recommend Nicola to anyone, we will miss working with her SO much!

Sound Like An Experience You Can Get Behind?

From curating the ideal vendor team to creating a cohesive—and compelling—event design across every touch-point, our full-service offering ensures your vision is brought to life with expertise and intention (sans sleepless nights and tedious to-dos).

Throughout the wedding planning services, you’ll have unlimited phone and email access to our team, 24/7 access to a streamlined online planning platform that outlines every last detail, and as much—or as little—involvement in planning as you’d like. We’ll use our perfected three-phase wedding-planning process to ensure you’re in the loop but never overwhelmed—and will manage both the brilliant big picture (think: creating a floorplan that maximizes available space and allows for easy event flow) and the minutiae you’d rather not deal with (think: scheduling shuttles and negotiating with wedding vendors on your behalf).

When the day-of arrives, it’s all hands on deck to ensure everything from lighting and signage to ceremony setup and tablescapes are styled to pure perfection. We’ll wrangle wedding party members for photos, direct guests, address any last-minute surprises without you even realizing they’ve arisen, and act as the (ever so quiet) engine that keeps your event running smoothly. All in all, your only job will be to remain present (and dance the night away)—we’ll take care of the rest.


Design & Event Management

Perfect for couples who: are comfortable managing the majority of moving parts on their own, but want to lean on the expertise of professionals for guidance as they go.

Our partial wedding planning services offering is designed to provide additional support and expertise as you plan the wedding of your dreams. We’ll answer those pesky etiquette questions, create a comprehensive minute-by-minute timeline, attend up to four meetings with your vendor team, and be present from setup to teardown on the day-of to ensure a flawless event.

Wedding Management

Perfect for couples who: have the planning and design process locked down, but want capable hands on deck on the day-of to ensure a seamless, stress-free celebration.

We’ll start with a one-hour consultation at the very beginning of your planning journey to give you the foundation you need to plan with purpose. When the month-of arrives, we’ll jump right back in to walk through the venue, clarify details, and create a comprehensive timeline. On your wedding day, we’ll be on site for up to 10 hours to ensure your celebration is stunning and streamlined.
