Nicole was EXACTLY what I was looking for in a day-of coordinator. She worked with me a couple weeks before the wedding which certainly helped to make sure the event went smoothly and she understood my vision. Most importantly, I wasn't worried about a thing on my wedding day. After she and I met, I had handed off any of my worries to her and I was blissfully unaware of anything that was less than perfect for the rest of the day. It helped me, my groom, my mom, my MOH, and everyone else to just relax and have fun. We knew, whatever it was, Nicole had it handled. Even for those on a tight budget, I would argue that you really can't afford to not have Nicole as part of you wedding team. She was worth every penny!

We worked with Nicole from Elegant Events as our "day-of" planner and could not have been happier! I wish I could have hired her to do my entire wedding, but the day-of service by itself was fantastic. Thanks to her our day went flawlessly. The process was very easy, we met with her a couple of times before the wedding, and had some work to do ahead of time getting her certain info, like vendors names, services, etc., and she put together a timeline for the day with everything that needed to be done, so that we had nothing to do the day of except get married. She conducts herself with a high level of professionalism, and has a calm, capable attitude that I appreciated as a stressed-our bride. If something went wrong that day, I still don't know about it, since Nicole handled everything so beautifully, down to the last detail, including making sure my husband and I got a drink at the reception by personally taking our order!

I planed my wedding in 3 1/2 months and on top of that I had a hard time trying to explain what my "vision" was. I kept wanting to change this or that. In my mind I new what i wanted but I thought I was having a hard time getting it across to her. Nicole just kept on working and telling me it will be beautiful. She was very patient and did a good job calming me down. In the end she was right she new exactly what I wanted and what I had been trying to tell her all along. It showed because everything was perfect. Nicole and her crew worked very hard the day of my wedding and It went of without a hitch!!

Thank you nicole.

Nicole and her team are amazing! She quickly understood the level to which I wanted to be involved and took over the smaller details I was unconcerned with. The layout of the tables and reception was fantastic and I didn't have to worry about anything the day of! Also, she gives great suggestions for timeline and vendors that I wouldn't have even thought about. She's definitely a pro and her calm attitude is great to be around when you feel you are overwhelmed. I would go to her again in a heartbeat and can't wait to return to her family's Inn for anniversaries. So many good memories!

Nicole is amazing! Elegant Events handled the day-of event planning/managing at my wedding ceremony and reception at Ravines Golf Club in Saugatuck, MI. She handled everything from the ceremony music to the clean up at the reception. She helped put me at ease on my big day. Nicole is very knowledgeable in the field of wedding planning, and shared her helpful secrets with me. She made sure I asked the right questions to get what I wanted from my vendors. My tables looked just as I imagined and wanted them to look! Nicole has an eye for decorating. Her tastes matched my rustic themed wedding very well. Nicole and her interns were professional, helpful and thoughtful from start to finish!

I cannot say enough about Nicole and the Elegant Events team. Working together was the best decision we made surrounding our wedding! Elegant Events is organized, professional, trustworthy and amazingly creative and resourceful.

We recently held our outdoor wedding at a private residence in South Haven and enlisted Elegant Events to help with day-of coordination. However, I felt like that term does not do all the work that they did justice. From the get-go, they were flexible and accomodating to our unique needs. Elegant Events brought our wedding vision to life - better than I even imagined my wedding day would be.

I thought I was organized, but became so much more confident and calm during the planning process after working through our wedding day plan with Elegant Events. Nicole asked questions I hadn't even thought about and had great solutions. She came up with a flow for our ceremony to cocktail area and reception tent so that I could easily guide our rental vendor when they came with our delivery. Heading into the big day, I couldn't have felt more at ease being away at the salon knowing Elegant Events was back at the helm. I felt like I could focus on me and the emotion of the day, not the stress of making sure every detail was set. When I arrived at the venue, ready to dress, I saw that not only was every detail set the way I imagined, but it was perfect and better! Elegant Events created a wedding that several people said was the most beautiful they ever attended. (Literally, our parents received calls for several days after and we heard it there ourselves.) They dressed tables, set out the decor I purchased in creative ways, arranged flowers, guided vendors and most importantly, figured out resourceful ways to maximize our space (by using things from the ceremony later in the reception area, or other cool decor from the yard or home that could double for "beautifying" the tent, etc.).

I recommend Elegant Events with my highest regards for yours. Their experience and creativity is unmatched.

I cannot say enough about Nicole and the Elegant Events team. Working together was the best decision we made surrounding our wedding! Elegant Events is organized, professional, trustworthy and amazingly creative and resourceful.

We recently held our outdoor wedding at a private residence in South Haven and enlisted Elegant Events to help with day-of coordination. However, I felt like that term does not do all the work that they did justice. From the get-go, they were flexible and accomodating to our unique needs. Elegant Events brought our wedding vision to life - better than I even imagined my wedding day would be.

I thought I was organized, but became so much more confident and calm during the planning process after working through our wedding day plan with Elegant Events. Nicole asked questions I hadn't even thought about and had great solutions. She came up with a flow for our ceremony to cocktail area and reception tent so that I could easily guide our rental vendor when they came with our delivery. Heading into the big day, I couldn't have felt more at ease being away at the salon knowing Elegant Events was back at the helm. I felt like I could focus on me and the emotion of the day, not the stress of making sure every detail was set.

Nicole did a wonderful job with our wedding. As residents of Chicago, we knew we wanted a small ceremony in western Michigan, but really did not know how to go about planning it when we did not know too much about the area. Nicole definitely made it easy. We went up to Michigan twice in total before our day to meet with her, and decided all the details at that time. She was able to recommend a florist, a hairstylist, any vendor that we needed. However, we were able to provide whatever personal touches were important to us (ie, I brought the dessert from a favorite place in Chicago, my husband chose his favorite beers, which the bar vendor was able to purchase specially). The beach that Nicole chose was perfect, and the reception on the grounds of her family's B+B Twin Gables was perfect. I definitely recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in western Michigan.

Nicole and her team were wonderful! It was so nice to know I had someone I could trust to handle the "day of" details so we could enjoy the day and have no worries. Everything went really well and she even thought of some last minute details I hadn't thought about and I loved it! I would definitely recommend Elegant Events for your wedding planning. Nicole was easy to contact and made me feel at ease as a bride. Thank you so much!

Nicole is, as the others have noted, very cool headed and very resourceful! She was very patient with me (and the moms) as we re-re-revised the details, and worked with us to make sure the event was within our budget while still being incredibly elegant. Our guests are still raving about the wedding, five months later.
