“Nellie will ensure your day is flawless.”

Nellie goes the extra mile to ensure your big day is all you dreamt it would be. For me personally, I most appreciated bouncing ideas off Nellie throughout the planning process and emailing her for vendor recommendations, wedding etiquette pointers and all of the little details that make your big day yours. Thanks to Nellie, when the big day finally arrived, I had the peace of mind going into it that I wouldn’t have to worry about any logistics because Nellie and her team had it all covered. I highly recommend her to brides in need of some guidance as they plan, or to those brides simply looking for help on their wedding day. It is money well spent and Nellie will ensure your day is flawless.

“Thank you so much, Events By Nellie – for making my wedding day the best day of my life!”

I am so, so happy that we hired Events By Nellie. Her organization helped us keep track of everything that we needed to do for the entire year of wedding planning, and she helped make our wedding day perfect and unforgettable. She personally helped us with so many tasks! She edited the text for our many invitations and programs, shared her experience with the vendors we were considering (which we LOVED). Nellie gave us ideas for rituals, our wedding website, rehearsal dinner, girls luncheon, guest list numbers, signage, aisle decoration, and fun activities for bridesmaids and groomsmen. She communicated with our venue often and made sure everything was set, and she decorated our venue so beautifully..she even tested out how our altar would look prior to the wedding because we had an unusual request to have a painting in the background! She truly went above and beyond. Nellie’s prompt responses for so many of our questions were so crucial. She answered ALL of our detailed questions and thought of every detail of our wedding day. Her correspondence was always professional, and I felt relieved that she would know how to take care of things. She helped us put together our timeline in great detail, and helped us think through so many things I would have forgotten if it wasn’t for her attention to detail! She worked seamlessly with all of our vendors, and was such a life saver from the day we hired her! Thank you so much, Events By Nellie – for making my wedding day the best day of my life!

“Her love of people shines through to every person she works with.”

Love, love, love this gal! Nellie has one of the biggest and warmest heart we’ve ever seen! Her love of people shines through to every person she works with. We are Kansas City wedding photographers and we have loved every moment we’ve spent planning and working with her. We have so much fun together! Nellie is so wonderful at helping all of us (vendors) be the best team we can be for our brides and grooms. You will never regret including Events by Nellie in your day!

“She made sure that myself, being the bride had absolutely NOTHING to worry about.”

Our wedding would not have been the same without Events by Nellie. We met several times prior to the wedding, Nellie and I connected after our first meeting, she was so understanding and saw our vision for our wedding day. I can honestly say that having Nellie by our side through the process was the best thing that happened to us. She truly loves her job, and it showed through her excitement and passion for our wedding. She has many great connections with vendors around KC which came in very handy when we got delivered terrible rental chairs the night prior to our wedding, I called Nellie and explained my concern to her, she calmed me down and assured me that she will make some calls and find new chairs for us. She called me back in ten minutes and said she had new chairs being delivered by 10 am on our wedding day. They arrived on time and were perfect. I was so impressed with how she handled this situation; she was calm, collective and managed to fix the problem promptly, keeping the stress away from my family and myself. Not only did I go into our wedding weekend confident that our wedding as going to run smoothly but I was stress free on our wedding day thanks to Nellie; She was always checking in at the perfect times to make sure that I was doing ok and letting me know how amazing everything was going. She made sure that myself, being the bride had absolutely NOTHING to worry about.
