— who we are —
— the company —
Nicole George Event Planning & Design is a wedding and event production and design company ideal for the creatively conscious adventurers, dreamers, and do-ers that we call our couples. We create personalized experiences and rad celebrations (yes rad…because no one remembers the average party) for clientele that values the lighter and brighter side of life and aren’t afraid to try something new. (Read: Most of our couples prefer to host a killer party with a side of wedding and we totally love every detail of that!) Design is our jam and we offer a variety of planning and coordination services suited for any stage of planning your dreamiest celebration ever. We span Southern California with offices in Long Beach and San Diego.
— our design philosophy —
We are die-hard believers that event design is a crucial part of any and all events! Ever hear that saying that people won’t remember what you said, but they’ll remember how you made them feel? Yeah, that’s how we approach design. It’s so much more than pretty styled photos…we believe in designing an immersive experience telling your love story in every aspect of your event. Your event design should speak to your personalities, your vibe, your story and it’s our role to identify how to conceptualize to execute that vision. Design speaks differently to each couple but one thing’s for certain…it’s in the design that will make your event 1000x different than anything you’ve been to before. In fact, most of our couples reach out to us understanding that design (aka the “juicy” part of planning!) can make a huge impact in the style of their day. For that, we love you dearly!

Owner + Creative Director
I have been designing and planning weddings, social, corporate, and non-profit events since 2009. My roots in architecture and interior design prompted a career in event design, where I became a Lead Designer with a principal wedding planning firm, eventually heading event departments in San Diego’s Balboa Park. Nicole George Event Planning & Design launched in 2013 and expanded to a second location in Long Beach in 2015. Let’s just say that my path has always been a career, never a hobby, which I’m truly proud of and have never looked back! I’m addicted to laid-back humble people and good vibes. Whether it’s over a craft beer or Kona coffee, I prefer good face-to-face conversation than anything else! Animal advocacy and community-over-competition is intentionally integrated into my personal and business-life and design remains a pinnacle of my company profile to this day. I’m originally an East Coaster, but lived in San Diego for 10 years before calling Long Beach my forever home (and potentially Hawaii coming soon)!
