You’ll Be Glad You Nicole Is On Your Team
Our experience with Nicole at Sugar Plum Events was EXACTLY what we needed. I am forever grateful for the kindness, organization, details, and continued encouragement she shared with us throughout the planning stages. We had an initial consultation where I was able to freely share my vision with her; she took that vision and turned it into a real life fairytale! We worked long distance, which turned out to work amazingly well. Nicole is attentive and very responsive, I don’t know how she does it with a huge smile on her face every step of the way.
We were married on March 14th, 2021 in Tampa, Florida and couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner/producer/event specialist to help us create the wedding of our dreams.
Due to Covid-19 we made the decision to downsize our wedding from 100+ guests to 10. With ease, Nicole planned the perfect intimate ceremony and dinner reception for us. I never expected the amount of communication, planning, etc. that is needed to plan events, but it was not something I had to worry about at all. I completely trust Nicole and highly recommend she and Sugar Plum Events to anyone who needs her services!Sent on 02/05/2021

Nicole was nothing short of amazing and stepped in when our decor/ wedding planner tragically and suddenly passed away this summer! She made sure our day was everything and more with one month to our big day! I am so thankful and grateful for her vision and making sure everything was absolutely perfect and she even recreated our centre pieces exactly the way we had originally planned for them to look! I just couldn’t imagine getting through our day without her and we are still receiving compliments on how everything was literally so perfect and all of the small details were so crisp!! Thank you Nicole!! We will never forget everything you have done for us and how flawless you made our special day!!Sent on 30/09/2019

Nicole at Sugar Plum Events is AMAZING!
My husband and I decided to hire a day-of coordinator last minute, only a week before our wedding day. We were overwhelmed with all the little details that we knew needed to come together on the day of our wedding, and we wanted to be able to enjoy the day with our friends and family without worrying. We contacted Nicole, and she was INCREDIBLE! By far one of the best wedding planning decisions we made and well worth every penny. She was so helpful, bringing our day together perfectly! Nicole was there early the morning of our wedding, setting up everything exactly as we had dreamed of. She listened to our vision for the day and brought it to life for both our ceremony and reception! She also helped coordinate our wedding ceremony so that everything went smoothly and everyone was where they were supposed to be at the right time. My husband and I didn't have to worry about a single thing the day of our wedding because Nicole had it all covered. We are so happy we hired her and would highly recommend her services for anyone planning a wedding!Sent on 11/12/2020

Weddings need event planners!!! Even small ones
Nicole went above and beyond with our wedding, to all my friends who are debating having an event planner, let me tell you that on your wedding day you want to be focused on you and your husband and the incredible milestone of your wedding, not the small details. Which is exactly what Nicole is focused on. It is well worth the money, Nicole did all our decor, set up and takedown, made sure everyone went down the aisle at the right time, she even hand poured citronella candles for our outdoor ceremony. Our whole wedding ran like clock-work. I know the cost can seem overwhelming but I assure you it, it is definitely worth it. Nicole was there to answer questions and give me advice about lots of vendors because she knew and worked with many, advice I would not have had without her. Things that I had no idea like who is a good seamstress, or what is the typical order of a reception (she created a timeline). If you want to be stressed on the day of and put a lot on your family members go for it, but I would've paid triple what Nicole cost us. My husband and I don't regret a thing about our wedding, in no small part due to Nicole I am sure. Thanks Nicole! Love T&JSent on 07/11/2020
Sugar Plum Events's reply:The most romantic send off i've ever seen.. and I doubt i'll ever see every guest and vendor feel it that deeply again. THIS one, was for the books.. this is what soulmates look like
