2015 Recap!

I cannot believe 2015 is over already (I seriously say this every year!). I also cannot believe what an amazing year it has been with amazing couples! We’ve had the joy of working at some great venues including Noah’s Event Venue, Maitland Arts Center, Orlando Science Center and Ocoee Lakeshore Center to name a few. We were blessed to connect with impressive vendors such as Wishful Concepts Catering, the ladies at Noah’s Event Venue, DJ Adam, DJ Shane, Al Dee Productions, Angelika Krug Photography, Callaraes Floral Events, DW Photography and Sweeter than the name more than a few LOL! And of course we couldn’t forget our role as the day of coordinator for The Big Fake Wedding Orlando. All in all it has been a spectacular year and I cannot wait to see what 2016 brings because the YLE couples for next year are the best!

Here’s a couple shots for a recap of some of the weddings that we had the pleasure of being a part.

“I would recommend Nichole to anyone who needs a day of coordinator. She is very knowledgeable and was always there when I had any questions. She was always prompt in responding to emails. The day of the wedding she had everything under control and everything went smoothly with no worries.”

Weekly Wrap Up

Orlando Wedding CoordinatorHey All!

I’m so happy to be doing this weekly wrap up as it will be my last before I am out on maternity leave. I am expecting a baby very soon and I will be going on maternity leave beginning on Monday, June 29th and will return on Monday, August 3rd. Enough of that and now onto last week’s events!

Last week was a wedding week so in tradition it consisted of a lot of last minute details and phone calls. Saturday’s wedding was a long time coming as the Bride’s mom hired us last year. I’ve been working with her for close to a year prepping for Saturday and all of our hard work paid off. Some things were easier than others but like always things turned out excellent. As a coordinator I always remind my clients that I will make sure everything goes smoothly, whether it’s according to plan or not. We had rehearsal on Thursday and we were able to finalize everything. Unfortunately the forecast was saying rain which we were worried would affect the pictures but God was looking out. Our amazing photographer was able to do all the pictures before the ceremony and we did not even have to worry about outdoor pictures in the rain (she did take an amazing shot of the couple with the rainbow…be on the lookout for when those pro pics are posted on the blog. The wedding was at Ocoee Lakeshore which is a beautiful fairly new venue. One of my favorite parts of the wedding, besides the grooms amazing grandparents dance moves was the cookie bar, which is a Pittsburg tradition. I can’t say I enjoyed the couples entrance song as it was the FSU fight song LOL…Go Gators! The wedding was full of personal touches and was a DIY wedding gone RIGHT! It was family oriented and focused and I loved that aspect. Here’s a couple phone shots for you all to enjoy!

I’ll stop by and post a weekly wrap up every now and then while I’m on leave but until then enjoy the Real Wedding posts that are coming up!

Weekly Wrap Up

Orlando Wedding Coordinator
Oh yes I know I am days late with this post but have mercy on me things have been go go go! Things are winding down since my maternity leave is coming up, or shall I say they are winding up! We have 2 weddings this month where we are the wedding coordinators, with our last one next weekend.

Last week we had a final venue walk through for our last June wedding next weekend. It always helps to meet with the bride to get her final vision and thoughts. Usually our final meetings result in a lot of changes and we have to go through the workbook. The wedding workbook is 11 pages of important info for the day of the wedding. It has discussion items from the caterers arrival time to details on the sand ceremony. This workbook keeps the couple and I on the same page and also reminds us to discuss even the smallest detail.

Our wedding this past weekend was amazing! There was so many small details to make it happen and so many last minute changes that on the day of really did not matter. I had an amazing team to help put it all together and worked with some of the best vendors! I am really excited to see the pro pics when they come back. This was a wedding for the books down to the bride cutting her dress, yes literally cutting it with scissors and turning it into a short dress! I love when I am able to connect with the families and friends at the wedding and that is exactly what happened, it was such a great group. {The phone shots below does it no justice!}
