Simply the Best
Noelle was the best decision we could have made for our spring wedding. We were truly blown away by her services, planning and responsiveness. Including how fast she got our vision and how well she executed against it. She helped us navigate through a ton of various regulatory issues that came up along the way. Her preferred vendor list was amazing and it made our entire process run so smoothly. Every single vendor recommendation she made was a quality hire. I can't encourage other couples enough to hire Noelle and her team. You won't regret it!Sent on 05/10/2021

Noelle can do it all
My husband and I hadn’t intended to hire a wedding planner until we signed on with a venue that required a day-of coordinator. One year and several COVID-related postponements later, we could not imagine having done this without Noelle and her team.Sent on 12/12/2020
When the pandemic took off, she didn’t blink. She was always available to help us navigate minor questions and major upheavals alike. She kept us abreast of the wedding industry’s response to the pandemic as it evolved, and she clearly understood the standards different vendors would need to meet to ensure the safety of their guests. From day one, she was a clear, straightforward and reliable communicator, always making sure we understood the context of our decisions, walking us through our options, and providing sage guidance along the way.
Noelle has phenomenal taste, which she scaled to accommodate our vision and budget. If we didn’t want to invest too much in a particular aspect of the wedding, she offered affordable, high-impact alternatives. After we cancelled our 120-person celebration and pivoted to a family-only backyard ceremony, she was right there with us — even though our new date took place during peak fall wedding season. She also sent us a beautiful gift basket on what would have been our original date, knowing it would be a difficult day for us.
Also, her preferred vendor list is excellent. She has strong relationships with folks in every vendor category — so I highly recommend hiring Noelle before you do anything else.
“Meticulous” is an understatement: Noelle is attuned to all of the granular details — from timing to direction to flow to responsibilities — that make the difference between a wedding day that feels stressful and one that feels seamless. Between her aesthetic vision and her logistical prowess, Noelle is a true advocate for her clients. Hire her!

Professional, responsive, detail-oriented
Trust me, you want Noelle as your wedding coordinator! I mean this when I say I couldn't have done it without her. We selected Noelle's Bare Essentials service, which included coordination services starting 2 months before the wedding. Our wedding was originally scheduled for June 2020; due to the impact of COVID, Noelle made herself available to talk with us even before our service start date. It was so helpful to get her insight on how weddings in our area were adjusting due to COVID, and her advice ultimately helped us make the decision to postpone to September. During our reschedule period, Noelle made herself available to meet with us to provide new vendor recommendations, answer questions about weddings during COVID, and even offered a complimentary virtual design session to elevate our aesthetic. She even helped us find a trusted vendor to live-stream our wedding last minute, so our guests could attend virtually. Throughout each engagement, Noelle was professional and informative, which really helped us think through the options! We ended up having a 30 person outdoor wedding in September, and Noelle was so on top of it. The main reason we hired a month-of coordinator was so we can enjoy the day, stress-free and not worry about any of the set up or logistics. We went into our wedding day knowing with 100% confidence that we could trust Noelle to handle all the event details. She coordinated all of our vendors, set up our decorations perfectly, managed the timeline, and packed up all of our decorations after the wedding. Our day was stress-free and perfect - down to every little detail, thanks to Noelle! 10/10 would recommend!Sent on 10/13/2020
