Our daughter and her fiancé picked September 29, 2012 to get married on the beach in Douglas, MI. and to have their reception at the Twin Gables Inn in Saugatuck. We had three months to put this wedding together, and we all live in a suburb of Chicago. Although, Nicole could do nothing to ensure that we had the 74 degrees and sun that we had for the ceremony, she certainly went over and above to make sure that what we envisioned came to fruition. There is not one thing we would have done differently. Nicole gave us sound advice as to catering. The food was spectacular, and everyone made comments. The tent with the tiny lights looked magical and romantic. Twin Gables was warm, and Danielle was very accommodating. Between she and Nicole, they made everything happen the way we wanted. The breakfasts were to die for, and the ambiance of Inn along with the families being together made for a very special weekend. What a great way to start a new life!!!

Nicole was EXACTLY what I was looking for in a day-of coordinator. She worked with me a couple weeks before the wedding which certainly helped to make sure the event went smoothly and she understood my vision. Most importantly, I wasn't worried about a thing on my wedding day. After she and I met, I had handed off any of my worries to her and I was blissfully unaware of anything that was less than perfect for the rest of the day. It helped me, my groom, my mom, my MOH, and everyone else to just relax and have fun. We knew, whatever it was, Nicole had it handled. Even for those on a tight budget, I would argue that you really can't afford to not have Nicole as part of you wedding team. She was worth every penny!

Can't say enough about Nicole. She was prompt, very professional and so calm and collected all the time. The day of the wedding went without a hitch or if there were, we didn't notice.
She was invaluable!

Awesome location with a great staff

We have traveled to Grand Rapids on several occasions to film weddings and ran into Nicole on more then one wedding, she and her team do everything above and beyond!

I am a wedding minister who has been doing weddings for over 20 years. When I meet another professional who has "a calling" for the work, it is something special! Nicole LOVES what she does, and that is so important when it comes to weddings. There is a focused joy that she brings to her day-of-event presence which is calming to everyone. We all know we're in good hands with Nicole! I've had the pleasure of working with Nicole on several SW Michigan weddings and highly recommend her to any couple who wants to leave the details of the day to an expert who works with her heart as well as head and hands! ~ Rev. Rebecca Armstrong, Wedding by Heart
