Colorful Fall Wedding

We were honored to have planned Elia + Joe's backyard wedding this past Fall! Even more-so, because the couple is actually longtime friends of our Owner and Creative Director, Nicole! These two have the most humble yet outgoing personalities and we loved encouraging them to create a day that truly reflected them. Our bride, Elia, is sharing some words about her experience working with the NGE team below. You can also check out their blog and full wedding gallery click here!

From the Bride:

"Where do I even begin with Nicole and her amazing staff?! Nicole was my friend and neighbor when I found out she was a wedding planner. After my husband Joe popped the question, it was only natural for me to think of Nicole first to help guide us through this event. It was meant to be! We hired her for the month of package, but she was completely hands on the entire time. I could not have planned such a magical day without her and her NGE team. We originally had another venue until we found out my brother in law needed a liver transplant. His kids (my nephews), and his wife (my sister) were all in the wedding party. We decided we needed to postpone the wedding so my brother in law could have his surgery, heal, and be able to dance with us on our special day! I cannot tell you the backlash and deposits lost that we had from almost all of our other vendors. But Nicole and her team stuck by us for over a year and a half while he healed. This included venue changes, photographer changes and all! She always checked in to see how he was doing, she has a huge heart and REALLY cares. We ended up having a beautiful backyard wedding of almost 200 people. Without Nicole and her team, none of this would have happened. She has such style, such class, and you would be lucky to have her in your corner for such a monumental day! She listened to all of the silly little details I wanted to include, and made sure everything was perfectly in place so my vision could come alive. Nicole and her team made sure everything flowed so smoothly. She was amazing with our crazy, loud, outgoing families with her assertive and professional demeanor. Her and her team are exactly who you need for your big day! We love you NGE!!!"
