We live in Canada so had to plan our Scottsdale wedding from out of town, and we couldn't have done it without Nicole's help. Throughout the entire planning process, up until our big day and even in the days after, she went above and beyond our expectations; making recommendations and dealing with all our vendors, she was always on top of everything and kept us well informed along the way. She was always quick to reply to any questions and offer advice.
Our wedding turned out perfect and we have Nicole to thank for it. I would definitely recommend her to plan any wedding or event!

Nicole Arend provided exceptional service for my big day. That included both before and during the event. Her assistants were able to effectively handle some lively characters in the wedding party and were flexible with changing circumstances. Nicole was also able to find vendors and service providers for me and would still find them within my budget. She made sure that she met with me a lot to figure out every little detail and keep me on track with the things that I needed to do.

I was not interested in hiring a wedding/event planner as I can be very particular, but she proved to be well worth everything. Her packages are reasonably priced and ultimately, she paid for her services multiple times over by saving me so much money on other things. I was initially interested in having Nicole provide day-of coordination so I didn't have to worry about setting things up, getting people where they belong, or assisting with things that, as the bride, I didn't want to worry about. She made a great case for both packages (day-of coordination and full wedding planner), and I thought having a wedding planning expert could only be more helpful since I've never planned a wedding before. I was really pleased with everything Nicole and her assistants did and now that I have assisted friends in two weddings since, I can see how my wedding day ran more smoothly, was less stressful, and was more organized as a result of her services. I really did get to be the bride and just focus on my husband and our special day.

Nicole and her assistant, Alexis, helped my husband and I the day of the wedding. I chose the silver package which included 8 weeks of planning before the wedding and both of them there to help the day of the wedding. Nicole was always very easy to reach by phone or e-mail and she was completely professional the whole time be met. I could not have done half of the things for the wedding with out her. She was a great help for creating the timeline, I didn't hear about one thing that went wrong that day and she was able to build in a little extra time in case we got delayed, which happened the day of the wedding. The ceremony started only 5 minutes late and by the end of the ceremony, we were ahead of schedule. Alexis and Nicole set up all of the ceremony decorations and reception things that we wanted to use. My wedding couldn't have gotten any better but it would have been a disaster without her help! Wedding coordinators, even just a day of coordination, is totally worth every penny! It is nice to have someone who does this on a regular basis, instead of your mother or mother in-law, to make sure all the vendors are where they are when they are supposed to be and to help answer all of your questions. Thank you so much Nicole!!!

She was a great help for creating the timeline, I didn't hear about one thing that went wrong that day and she was able to build in a little extra time in case we got delayed, which happened the day of the wedding. The ceremony started only 5 minutes late and by the end of the ceremony, we were ahead of schedule. Alexis and Nicole set up all of the ceremony decorations and reception things that we wanted to use. My wedding couldn't have gotten any better but it would have been a disaster without her help! Wedding coordinators, even just a day of coordination, is totally worth every penny! It is nice to have someone who does this on a regular basis, instead of your mother or mother in-law, to make sure all the vendors are where they are when they are supposed to be and to help answer all of your questions. Thank you so much Nicole!!! Read less

There is absolutely no way I could have had my wedding without Nicki Robbins. She was an absolutely fabulous coordinator. She was on time and extremely professional- and she just got it done. Everyone kept saying "Wow your wedding coordinator is awesome". Even when everything seemed hectic and crazy she was calm and collected. She came up with ideas I never thought of to help the day run smoothly and went above and beyond. I would recommend her to any and all of my friends who are getting married.

Nicole was absolutely amazing! From the day we met her we knew we needed her! She was on top of everything, calling our vendors for us, keeping us updated along the way, answering all my questions and giving advice, even finding us an AMAZING photographer (in our price range) when ours cancelled on us. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, if anything went wrong we have no idea, she took care of it all. We purchased all our alcohol, hired a bartender, and somehow missed renting a bar! Nicole got it fixed and a bar delivered in no time!! I felt confident in planning the wedding, but having Nicole there the day of to coordinate everyone was the best investment we made! I HIGHLY recommend hiring Nicole, even if it is just for the day of, you wont regret it! I was never once stressed or worried because I knew she had everything under control and would take care of anything!
Nicole we cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did, everything was absolutely perfect!

The flowers by Nikki were beautiful. I was not set on one the type of flowers, so I chose the colors I wanted, showed her pictures and let her create them herself. They turned out perfect! The centerpieces and decorations were put together exactly how I wanted and I loved it!!

Everything about our wedding day was beautiful and perfect! I can't get over how smooth our day was, we have gotten so many compliments on what a beautiful wedding it was, and I thank Nicole and Nikki for making it all come together just as I always dreamed!! You two are great!

Nicole was amazing and my wedding would have not been the same without her. I only wish I would have hired her much earlier in the process. She is worth way more than the fee she charges. I had no worries on my wedding day, as Nicole was on top of every single detail. My only piece of advice to brides is to hire Nicole - the sooner the better. She is amazing and I will happily recommend her to everyone for all types of events! Thank you Nicole!

We got engaged 1 year ago & the last thing I thought we would have needed was a “day of wedding planner.” After our amazing, perfect wedding I can’t think of anything that we needed more. I used Nicole’s rehearsal & wedding day package. I first met with Nicole in June to discuss my vision. I had the opportunity then to bounce ideas off her. She made sure that all my vendors were booked and gave me some great advice on how to make my dreams reality. Between June-Oct, Nicole was always available by phone, text, or email if I needed her for ANYTHING!! I next met with Nicole late Oct. We met at the venue and she helped with best placement for stuff. She took a list of all my vendors. As our big day QUICKLY approached she made sure all the ends were tied up with the vendors. My conversations with Nicole were almost daily the week before the wedding. One of the most helpful things Nicole did was make a timeline. I had received one from the photographer, DJ, & caterer. She put all of these timelines together and showed me what my entire day would look like. On the day of, Nicole’s assistance was invaluable. Nicole was there early to help my family set up. I was a bundle of nerves and energy and she did everything she could to put me at ease. She was running back and forth between me and my groom ensuring each of us that the other was OK. She had her little basket of tricks that was full of deodorant, hairspray, mints, etc. She kept the entire day running as close to the timeline as possible. She truly took away so much stress. Anything I mentioned she had already taken care of it. She was around the entire reception but was in no way in the way. As our perfect day wound down she helped my family pack up everything while we enjoyed the rest of our day. I cannot accurately express how much help she was. Planning and executing a wedding was one of the most difficult things I’ve done and Nicole was with me every step of the way.

Nicole Arend was such a great choice for my event planner. She helped so much and was always there when I needed help making a decision or figuring out something for my special day. She helped organize all of the details, small and big, and then helped to keep all of those details organized and on schedule during my wedding. She was so wonderful and sweet. She is definitely worth every penny! She helped me plan things that I hadn't even thought about. Nicole was there for me before the wedding to make sure all of the vendors were on track and was there to make sure everything went smoothly on the actual day. The best part of having Nicole with me on my wedding day was that she was the one worrying about all of the details, not ME! That was so great and truly priceless to have! I appreciate having her so much and so glad that I was able to enjoy my wedding day to the fullest because of her. My parents and in-laws are also grateful for the same reason!

Never in a million years would I have thought I needed a wedding planner, but I thank God that I did and that it was Nicole Arend! I remember thinking before I got engaged that planning a wedding wouldn't be all that tough. You pick a date, you pick a venue, and the rest should just fall into place. I don't think I could have been more wrong! Planning a wedding is one of the most overwhelming tasks, even for a very laid back, go-with-the-flow kind of bride. There are so many decisions to make, from the cake to the photographer to the lighting to the napkin fold! Even thinking about how I felt at the very beginning makes me anxious! However, I was so lucky to have Nicole. Once she stepped in, I felt like I could breathe again. She broke it all down for me, and together we worked our way through all of the decisions and planning. She was there with me every step of the way, from calling vendors to attending tastings to making sure it all looked perfect on my special day. Whenever I had a question, Nicole had an answer (or found out the answer immediately). Whenever I felt a panic attack coming on, she calmed me down. She handled everything I couldn't. I was especially fortunate to have her when my venue decided to change event coordinators THREE times during my 6 month engagement! Nicole also helped me with her connections. She pointed me in the direction of my amazing wedding photographer, Amanda Howard from Memories Through Time. Nicole's makeup girl, Mariana Walters, made me look and feel beyond beautiful on my wedding day. I cannot thank Nicole enough for all that she did for me. I highly recommend her to any bride, especially to the ones who don't think they need a wedding planner! Trust me, you won't regret it!

Nicole's expertise as an Event Planner helped us immensely, navigating the "ins and outs" of all that's entailed in planning a beautiful wedding. I was especially impressed with her genuine concern of ensuring the bride was sheltered from any issues that did arise. Nicole made a wedding successful despite the challenges of an unresponsive venue. I would definitely hire her to manage any event. Thank you, Nicole

Nicole Arend was an amazing help and blessing to my now husband and I. When we first met with her we were struggling with our current florist who had tagged on additional prices to our floral package. Our wedding was less than a month away and we had no flowers!!! Fortunately enough for us, we met with Nicole and within an hour she had a new florist booked for us who was willing to work within the budget we desired. She was also an amazing help on our wedding day and took a lot of the pressure off of us. We were able to enjoy and cherish every moment of our special day and we never had to worry about anything. I can't stress enough how helpful Nicole was. We would recommend her to anyone who wants an easygoing, stress-free wedding day.

I chose to go with a wedding planner after trying to do it on my own because I didn't really know all the tricks of the trade and felt like I was constantly trying to keep my head above water. Nicole Arend isn't like any other wedding planner I had talked to. She worked herself into my budget to avoid adding any additional cost after the fact, and she made sure I got everything at discounted prices without sacrificing anything I wanted. Before she started helping me I thought I had been getting the lowest prices but turns out I wasn't. I think she's great at what she does because she truly enjoys it. My day was "My Big DAY" because she made it happen.
