We just got back from our honeymoon, and we are still blown away at how perfect the big day was and how much Nicole had to do with that. She was amazingly attentive and has the process down to a science, including monthly checkins and to-do lists that are manageable and make the month leading up to the wedding extremely laid back. On top of this, Nicole's experience working with lots of other vendors in the SoCal area was worth its weight in gold, as she had valuable insight on comparing quotes and services. Overall, Nicole was far and away the best choice when it came to our wedding, and while I don't plan on getting married again.. if i did, I'd call Nicole!

Kathleen is amazing
I worked personally with Kathleen for the month of service and she was awesome! She was very sweet, organized and always willing to help and answer any questions that would arise. She was very professional and responsive! Kathleen really has her job down. She truly thinks of everything in case you have overlooked some things and is willing to give advice and recommendations as needed!

Intimate Destination Wedding with NGE
I feel silly because I'm getting slightly emotional thinking about how amazing of a job Nicole and Nicole George Events did planning our intimate, 25 guest destination wedding in San Diego. I'm not sure how to accurately convey all that they did for my husband, but I'll try! :)
As we live across the country, I found NGE on social media and immediately knew I HAD to contact her about being our wedding planner. When I saw her eye-catching and original ceremony/reception design in photos, I knew she would be a perfect fit with the non-traditional and modern vibe we were going for. We used the Full Service package for our 7 months of planning time and it was worth every penny. She helped us find the perfect venue and vendors based on our style and budget like she had known us for years! I felt 'understood' by and comfortable with Nicole from the very first phone call.
As we weren't able to have many meetings in person, I knew communication would be CRUCIAL in the planning process and Nicole did not disappoint. Her ability to compose and organize emails in a way that clearly outlines and explains her thoughts, questions, and reminders was excellent. She was flexible with her schedule for phone conversations and always made herself available if I needed to call on short notice. She always let me know every detail of what was happening and when as I requested- I wanted to be involved in the planning 100% and I was via email even all the way from Florida! When I felt stressed or worried about anything, she was there to calm my nerves and reassure me. She gave me the confidence to trust our decisions and that what we were planning together would be amazing- and I did, and it was! On the other hand, she also spoke up when she thought something wasn't looking right or didn't fit with our design aesthetic, which I really appreciated and respected.
Nicole excelled at every aspect of planning our wedding, however I was especially impressed by her on the day of. When I walked into the venue, I was in awe of how every piece of furniture, floral arrangement, signage, and decor fit into the space seamlessly. She really listened to my vision for the wedding vibe/design, understood it, and made it come to life perfectly. I was also pleasantly surprised to see she made last minute layout and decor positioning changes because despite our planning diagrams, it didn't work out as planned on the day of. I love that she recognized the problems and made changes on the fly, ultimately making a significant improvement! Also, her coordination of the timing of the ceremony, cocktail hour, dances, and dinner was on pointe. Everything happened on time and I wasn't even sure she was there lol despite quiet and helpful reminders about the beginning of cake cutting, speeches, etc. Our wedding day could not have gone more smoothly and I'm sure that's just how she planned it to be!
Finally, I am so thankful to have met a person like Nicole. She is warm, relatable, diligent, and most importantly professional- definitely the kind of person you wouldn't mind emailing back and forth with multiple times a day. You can tell she is very passionate about her work and making your wedding the best it can be which was clearly demonstrated throughout every step of the planning process. It was MY pleasure to work with her and I would recommend her highly.
Thank you Nicole!!
With endless appreciation,
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend.
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend them for your wedding!
We've had the pleasure of working with Nicole, prior to the inception of her business, as the coordinator for Balboa Park Museums, through the transition and now as a Top Firm. She is one of the most professional and knowledgeable planners in the industry, hands down! Nicole works closely with her clients to provide the best possible solutions in achieving their dream wedding. She has an amazing grasp of the resources available to her and maintains a solid leadership role in the production and execution of every single event. She is very sweet and knows how to push the ball forward in a polite but firm manner. This is exactly what you want in a wedding planner! She is very creative, passionate, fun to work with and an honor to know. If I could buy stock in a wedding planner, I would own shares of Nicole George!
