    Indescribable, honestly. But I'll try.

    Nicole is truly a once in a lifetime kind of person who you meet and your thinking shifts - whether that is just a change from viewing your wedding day through a lens of stress to one of pure excitement, or if you're like me, connecting with Nicole, throughout the pandemic and during wedding planning, re-energized my love for life, and showed me again the joy you can get out of everyday from the littlest things - like finding a beautiful new walking spot - to the biggest things - like your wedding day.

    Our day could not have been more relaxing, romantic and perfect because of the support that we received from Nicole. Everything from fully planning and setting up the design, truly listening to our vision, helping bustle my very uncooperative dress, making sure that rehearsal and day of went without a bump (at least that I know of!), and literally every little moment in between, she was there 110%. We trusted her completely, and it was the greatest decision we could have ever made.

    Plus! Who doesn't want someone there on your wedding day who will not only bring you and your new spouse drinks as you hide away from the crowd for a moment alone, but who is just such a fun and genuine person who brings a beautiful energy to your special day.

    I guarantee I'm missing lots of details, but I've been typing for a while already so I'll wrap it up by saying that hiring Nicole will be the greatest decision you could ever make when it comes to planning ANY event, but especially your wedding day. I hope that you get to experience the joy that it is to work with and get to know such a wonderful, dedicated person.

    Love you the most ever, and so forever thankful.

    Nicole is absolutely amazing!!!!

    Oh my goodness, I absolutely loved working with Nicole from Sugar Plum Events. I booked her as a month of coordinator for my wedding. She is insanely hardworking, so sweet and so caring! She is an amazing person and knows everything there is to know about weddings! I swear she cared just as much about my wedding day as I did and was there with me every step of the way! I don’t know what I would of done without her advice and support. She is so detail oriented and because of her my ceremony and reception were absolutely perfect and like a dream. I would book her again and again and it was one of the best decisions that I made. Thank you so much Nicole for all your help and for ensuring my big day ran so smoothly and perfectly. You are the best! Highly recommend Sugar Plum Events, you will not regret it!

    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!

    Sugar Plum Events's reply:

    Nina- this means the world to me to hear that you felt so taken care of in a time of so much unrest and uncertainty! .. there's no better compliment through a pandemic. Thank you for trusting me and for sharing this chapter with me, even though we were separated by countries! You were an absolute pleasure to find a friend in

    Perfection!!!!

    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!!

    Sugar Plum Events's reply:

    Oh my gosssshhhhhh Alyssa!!! You and Josh are the sweetest toughest couple i think i've ever met, a stubborn love like this is going to last for the next 100 years and i'm so glad I was there with you

    Nicole IS a superhero

    Where do we even start... first of all if you're someone who thinks "we don't need a wedding planner... we can do this on our own" like we were.. Please at least do yourself the favour and meet with Nicole, because if you're having a wedding, you NEED Nicole on your team. We had originally booked our wedding in the summer of 2022 and then decided with 6 months notice to move it up a full year. We half expected that we'd be sacrificing on the wedding of our dreams because of the change but Nicole wasn't having any of that!! She was in constant communication with us over the entire time and ended up making use of ALL of our original deposits while securing us other amazing vendors with short notice to ensure we got exactly what we wanted! She also took care of all of the set up, take down, and making sure the day ran on time. Because of all her hard work doing this we got to focus on one thing.. ENJOYING OUR BIG DAY! She also made sure all of our vendors had their respective licenses... which sounds obvious... but we almost didn't have a legal wedding sooo good thing she checked on our officiant for us!! We have so many incredible examples of how Nicole went above and beyond for us, but I think the biggest testament to her character is the fact that when the wedding was done she didn't disappear but instead became a really great friend to us. Thank you Nicole for everything you've done for us. You're an amazing human being and we can't wait to see the rest of the things you'll accomplish!!

    Sugar Plum Events's reply:

    Ohhhh wow.. this one tugs at me. You two are incredible. Being beside you and legally marrying you was the highlight of my career ♡ cant wait to follow your adventures together!!

    The Best Investment You Can Make To Elevate your Wedding!

    Nicole is a master wedding planner and will elevate your wedding experience to a whole other level. She will take care of every detail that you didn't even know you needed addressed and take all the pressure off so you can fully enjoy your wedding planning experience from beginning to end. I highly recommend this creative professional to take care of you and your guests and provide you with outstanding service and cater to your very specific needs. I absolutely loved working with Nicole photographing her spectacular fine art wedding design concept and seeing her take such impressive care of her clients!

    The best investment for our wedding day!!!

    Having Nicole for our wedding day and the months leading to it, was the single best decision we made for our wedding day! Nicole was able to take our idea of a tented wedding on our farm, and turn it into an absolute dream. Not only did she take away the stress and anxiety that occurs when planning a wedding, but she made it so enjoyable! To have someone who kept us on track with our budget and ahead of our timelines was an absolute necessity. She was genuinely as excited for our wedding as we were!
    Book Nicole now! Before everyone else does because she is professional, brilliant at what she does and a salt of the earth human. You want this woman on your side!

    Sugar Plum Events's reply:

    Ohhh my heart, spending my days with you and your families, designing a total dream day for me too, was the best thing ever. Couldnt have work on this with a better couple ♡ so so glad to have met you!

    Absolutely amazing!

    A wedding should not happen without them involved. I cannot express how much ease and worry free our planning process and set up was because of this amazing human. They worked within our budget and didn’t exceed anything or do anything without our say so. Even when things from our venue seemed to hit a very rough patch, we were backed up and reassured in a way that brought us peace. Had we not had them backing us, we wouldn't have known where to start and been stressed about everything. My wife and I are absolutely more than satisfied and happy. We could not have done any of it without them being a HUGE part of it.

    Sugar Plum Events's reply:

    Thank you so much!!.I was so honoured to be with you both and glad to help make it as stress-free as possible so you could just in your best day ever!! So much more to come for you two.. cant wait to see ♡

    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!
