    Cannot recommend Nicole and her team enough

    We absolutely loved working with Nicole for our wedding day. We hired her for Day of Coordination but she did so much more than that. From the day we hired her, she was always available for any questions we had and was always prompt to respond. In the weeks leading up to our wedding, she was such a lifesaver and thought of so many things I would have never even thought of. When there was a threat of rain, she worked with us to have a great backup rain plan. I am sure there is a ton more that she did behind the scenes that we will never know about. On our wedding day, her and her assistant did a fantastic job. If anything went wrong that day, we never found out and Nicole handled everything like a pro. We would highly recommend hiring Nicole and she was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day!

    Awesome choice.. the experience was worth every penny.

    Tara was awesome! Securing the contract with Premier Party Planners was one of the best decisions I could have made. I was happy, relaxed, and overjoyed...the entire wedding day. I didn't feel an ounce of stress. The day of nothing went wrong (well at least from my POV) I just floated to every event that Tara told me to go to :) It was the BEST experience. My table numbers broke the day before my wedding and Tara took them home and REDID THEM... they came out better than when I did them myself. The night of the wedding she literally CLEANED up our suite to make it comfortable for us to return to after the reception. She was the ABSOLUTEEE best. All of my guests and photographer noticed. I highly highly highly recommend her. I don't have one con to mention. She puts care and structure in everything she does. For my brides that are over achievers, you will not go wrong putting the control and trust in her hands!!! Thank you for everything Tara!!

Nicole has been a pleasure to work with on several occasions .. she is always very professional and keeps things running smoothly on the wedding day, while being a good communicator leading up to the big day. This is very important for wedding planners, and Nicole is one of the best we've found in the Raleigh area for being on top of everything and well organized. You will love her, if you hire her to help plan and run your wedding :) xoxo
