Stephanie & Jason were married in November 2016 at the iconic Tom Ham's Lighthouse overlooking the San Diego bay. Since my very first meeting with Stephanie and Jason, I knew that we were going to be great friends long after their wedding was over. They incorporated so many unique details of their relationship into their wedding day to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Their love story was in full bloom and they remain one of the most in love and supportive couples I have ever had the chance of working with.

See what Stephanie and Jason had to say about their experience with Nicole George Event Planning & Design below and you can see images from their beautiful Fall wedding featured here.

From the Bride:

"Selecting a wedding a coordinator in my opinion, is one of the most important decisions a couple must face during the wedding planning process. Hiring Nicole George for our wedding at Tom Ham's Lighthouse in San Diego was our best decision, and I promise you she will not disappoint. Nicole is approachable, flexible, experienced, professional, creative and reliable. One of the things I loved most about Nicole was her genuine interest in mine and my fiance's love story and how supportive she was with creating a wedding experience that truly embraced our personalities. From suggestions on wedding day flow, timeline, uplighting, she was there to answer any questions and assist in making our wedding visions more tangible. Nicole was also a critical vendor resource, with the exception of our wedding venue, Nicole had her hand in every vendor choice we ultimately selected. She thoughtfully suggested roughly 3 vendors per service, a perfect number that allowed for variety but wasn't too overwhelming. From DJ, florist, cake/desserts, acoustic music, linens, makeup, hair stylist. the woman simply knows a lot of people, and they all love to work with her. As a bride that is very well organized and loves to partly plan and design herself, I can honestly say that Nicole was essential in my wedding planning process. My fiance and I thoroughly enjoyed our entire planning experience and it was incredibly stress-free thanks to Nicole's behind the scene work/organization/planning. After each meeting, you will receive essentially a debriefing as well as a list of things for you to do and a list of things Nicole will be working on....absolutely loved this detail. I encourage you to set up a consultation with Nicole and I suspect you will know within 15 minutes of your meeting if she is going to be the right coordinator for you. My relationship with Nicole was always professional yet laid back and at the end of our year long client-vendor relationship I gained an awesome friend."

From the Mother of the Bride:

"Nicole provided everything and more!! She recommended OUTSTANDING vendors to us and we were happy with each of them. Nicole kept us on track for the steps that needed to be done in a timely fashion. She destressed the situation.. and was responsive to the many emails, texts and phone calls (we are kind of over the top type A personalities!). It was such a relief to have someone to check in with... is this ok? what is expected? Should we? could we? She interfaced with all vendors and coordinated arrivals, followed up on contracts and payments and deliveries. She helped us organize our inventory of 'personal touches'.. which grew to an astounding amount... but she didn't blink an eye. It was an incredible relief to turn the boxes over to her and know that everything would be set up and displayed beautifully.. and it was! She also oversaw the task no one wants at the end of the evening.. packing up and accounting for everything and getting it returned.. especially when all of us were still in party mode! Best of all, she helped my daughter relax and enjoy her beautiful wedding. We cannot say enough positive things about Nicole George ....hiring her feels like having a friend who is extremely talented and professional is now part of your wedding planning!"
