Hint Of Chic
Hint of Chic (Nicole Chapman) helped us to throw a spectacular 60th birthday party for my wife this year. Nicole handled all of the details with such professionalism and efficiency that we had nothing to do but show up and have a wonderful evening. Nicole's knowledge of venues, flowers, food and decor was unsurpassed and the selection of Cafe Firenze was the perfect choice for our event. Hint of Chic is our "go to" event planner for all our important celebrations.
Nicole was my life saver! She was absolutely fabulous! I had six months to throw everything together for the biggest day of my life. She was a great resource for vendors & had great creative solutions. Not only was she able to plan for us, but she personally designed the stationary & flowers arrangements for both the ceremony & the reception venue. She even helped my daughter with make-up on wedding day when the make up artist flaked on me. Nicole coordinated all of the photography. I don't know what I would have done without her. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!
Nicole was wonderful to work with. She was on top of everything . She was always one step ahead. I really enjoyed her and the services she provided. She was warm and made things as easy as possible. She also was great at finding the best prices and saving us as much money as she could. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Nicole!
Nicole is an artist! She will take your ideas and transform them into beautiful reality, breath taking and unforgettable! She is so easy to work with and I was so comfortable communicating anything and everything. A very hard thing to find! She is attentive and responsive to any need and most of all she is fun! It was a pleasure working with her!
Nicole was a wonderful addition to our weeding! She has SO many creative ideas that can work within a variety of budgets and a variety of visions. She listened to everything I wanted to have done and did her best to make it happen. We are so grateful for all of her hard work, she definitely put in 110%. She was also able to negotiate deals with vendors to help meet our overall budget. You won't be disappointed in her services!
We finally had a chance to work with Hint of Chic this past year (2012).
They are nothing short of amazing.
They were very organized and very fun to work with.
Looking forward to many more events together.
