hello there

Meet Nellie

My first grade teacher was expecting a baby and I was determined to throw her a surprise baby shower. I circulated a piece of notebook paper among my six-year-old classmates with desserts listed beside each name. I recorded songs onto a cassette from my radio and convinced my principal to let us use the cafeteria. That Friday, I led my teacher down the hall to the cafeteria, where I watched her face light up with a smile.

As a little girl, my family owned a catering business. I watched as they met with beautiful brides and was proud to be in charge of placing disposable cameras on each guest table (my, how times have changed). My love for event planning has only grown since then. With experience in nonprofit and corporate event planning, event management in hotels on the local and international level and catering small birthday parties to large award celebrations, I have the knowledge and expertise to ensure your event is the perfect reflection of your love story. I believe that your wedding day is so much more than a single day – it is years of imagining and months of planning in anticipation of spending your lifetime with your other half. My passion is to bring your dreams to life on your wedding day and deliver an event that is completely you. I’m here to worry about the details and ensure all goes as planned so that you can spend your special day soaking up all its magic.

In my spare time, you can find me with my stud-of-a-husband, Josh, our babbling baby boy, Micheal, and our spunky poodle, Kimball. You may also find me aimlessly roaming Target or Ikea or chatting over an iced coffee at a local coffee shop.
