Our wedding event coordinator was PRICELESS!

Becky Gilligan was our event coordinator for our wedding in June 2019 and she was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Our wedding would have not gone well without her. She was professional, very detailed oriented, well organized, extremely helpful, and equally important, a positive and uplifting person.

If you are a couple who intends to plan your own wedding like my husband and I did, trust me, you will not regret getting yourself an event coordinator like Becky. She gave great recommendations and valuable advice, which made our planning process go smoother. She is quick with her responses and went above and beyond to answer our questions thoroughly. She even brought things to our attention that we didn't even think of which was awesome! If you are a detailed planner and like things a specific way, you can count on Becky and her team to carry out things the way you intended.

Thank you Becky and Nellie Sparkman Events for everything you guys did for us!

I don't even know where to start with the service provided by Events By Nellie. We booked Nellie and her team for the Month of Coordination package and it was perfect. Nellie and her team were excellent to work with in the months leading up to our wedding and Becky provided top notch DOC services the day of. Becky and Casey were able to keep our rehearsal moving along and provided easy to understand instruction. The day of, I didn't have to worry about anything. Candles were lit, tables were set up, and people were taken care of. All I had to worry about was showing up and marrying my husband :)

We used Nellie for stationary services as well. She provided proofs and she handled the printing, addressing, AND mailing of all the invitations. A huge weight lifted from my shoulders and our invites were simple and gorgeous. She also provided several other stationary items such as social media signs, bar menus, and place cards. All I had to do was provide the names and addresses.

Overall, a wonderful experience with Nellie and her team of professionals. I would highly recommend to anyone looking into a wedding coordinator.

Her background in multiple facets of the service industry gives her an edge over much of her competition. Not only is she able to deliver every time for her client, she also makes each event extremely stress free for each vendor that she is working with. I highly recommend Nellie to all couples and vendors that are looking for a coordinator that works hard from start to finish of planning an event, is extremely organized and detailed, and has a great sense of design!
