Weekly Wrap Up

Orlando Wedding CoordinatorHey Y’all!
I’ve been thinking about giving you all a behind the scenes look at how our weeks usually go here at Young Love Events. As wedding coordinators in Orlando we typically spend a lot of time doing behind the scenes work. So every couple weeks I’ll do a “Weekly Wrap Up” to let you know what’s going on over here at Young Love Events! Hope you all enjoy it!

Last week was a crazy busy week that included The Big Fake Wedding on Wednesday and a wedding on Saturday. We typically do 1 wedding a week that way we can focus all of our attention on that event and have no distractions. Dealing with the show on the same week it made me realize exactly why I stick to that plan!

The Big Fake Wedding as I posted before is a bridal show alternative that includes a real wedding. My role was day of coordinator so it still ran like a regular wedding. Early Wednesday morning I headed to the Orlando Science Center to set up my vendor table and to see the layout for the ceremony. As a normal wedding goes we had rehearsal, ceremony, reception and the exit. I was in charge of the rehearsal, ceremony and exit. I worked on planning an exit for all the “guests” and ended up choosing to use kazoos! It was such a fun night and I met so many amazing people! All the while I’m getting calls from vendors for my wedding that Saturday.

This wedding we had was in Melbourne, FL and was extra special because we were having a special surprise guest, Howie D from the Backstreet Boys. The Bride’s mother called to tell me the plans and she was full of excitement, as was I. We were having issues with the chair covers from the rental company but it all worked out and Howie D showed up. The level of excitement and surprise from the Bride and Groom did not compare to the guests and the Mother of the Bride (she love the BSB too!). View this link for actual photos and videos of the moment! Yes, we made it all the way to ABC News, Cosmopolitan and Huffington Post! Before Howie D left he asked to sign their guest book, I’m sure they will never forget him being there!

So much fun for one week!

The Big Fake Wedding Orlando

Orlando Wedding Coordinator

“The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional ceremony, a tasty dinner and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides-and-grooms-to-be who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action.”

The Big Fake Wedding Orlando is coming soon! This year Young Love Events has been selected to participate as a vendor doing the Day of Coordination for the wedding. We are beyond excited for this show because of its uniqueness and because we specialize in Day of Coordination for the Orlando area! As a guest you get to experience a real wedding and also you get to see the different aspects and vendors that usually are working behind the scenes. The other benefit of attending The Big Fake Wedding is that it doubles as a bridal show. Just like other bridal shows they have the “tunnel of love” where are the vendors will be to answer all of your questions and give you details about their companies and what they offer.

If you will be available next Wednesday, January 21st at 6pm I would love to meet you! We will have a special offer and giveaway so come through! This year The Big Fake Wedding will be held at the Orlando Science Center (how cool!!!). For more information and details about tickets you can always contact me! Hope to see you all there!

Happy Anniversary Young Love Events

Yes! Today is Young Love Events official anniversary. It was just a year ago that we decided to go big and start Young Love Events. I have been planning events for years but my brother planted the seed that I should actually make it into a business. Since he said it I have not looked back. So much has happened in this past year and I’ve been blessed to meet and interact with so many amazing couples, families and friends. I have learned so much about the business side of things and I am so thankful to those that have deposited into Young Love Events over this year. The encouragement I have received has been amazing and I’m grateful that I have amazing women in my corner always pushing me and cheering me on! My family has been my number one support and been there assisting me from the beginning, thank you. If you or anyone you know is looking for an Orlando Wedding Coordinator don’t forget us, Young Love Events!

With Thanksgiving around the corner I find myself thinking about how we forget to give thanks. I am so thankful and no words can describe the overwhelming emotions I feel today because I know without the support I would not be here. We’ve had an amazing first year and I am so ready for year 2, 3, 10, 15, 30! God has been amazing and we will continue to give him the praise for the favor he’s blessed us with at Young Love Events.

I thought this could be a fun post to let you all learn more about me, Nichole, the brains behind the brand and about Young Love Events. Enjoy a sneak peek into my life!

1. What is the most important thing to you?

My cell phone…haha no I’m kidding! My family. I love my family so very much and have been blessed with a great one on all sides, my dad, my mom and my husbands. A lot of people don’t consider they’re extended family when they reference family but I do. I love my husband and daughter more than anything but I love my extended family all the way down to my second cousin too! I’m very family oriented and usually spend the free weekends hanging around with them. I’ve made it a point to have my daughter and I visit my mother every Friday. A mother – daughter – granddaughter relationship is so valuable and I’m glad I get to share that time with them.

2. Why did you choose the name Young Love Events?

God obviously knew something I did not…that I would marry a Young because my maiden name would not have worked! When my husband and I got married everything for my wedding was referred to as Young Love so it was only fitting that my new love would be called Young Love Events.

3. What does a typical day for you look like?

Every morning I wake up and pray, for real. As the day goes on I drop my daughter off by my aunt who watches her and I get to work. I’m very organized and list all of my to-do’s in the morning. My day is full of emails, calls and more emails and calls. Step by step I work through those to-do’s while mastering interruptions that come along. I bought a Day Designer for 2015 and I’m excited to see how it will help keep me even more organized. I’ve been trying to stop working by 6 and spend the rest of the evening with my husband and daughter…I’m still working on that! At home in the evening I’m either on the couch watching football or having a dance party with my daughter.

4. What is one thing you want to do in 2015?

I can’t say it’s something I want to do since I WILL be doing it but attend Wedding MBA. Wedding MBA is the conference of all conferences for wedding planners. It will be in September next year and I’ve already paid my registration!
Oh how could I forget, I turn 30 next year! I can’t wait for that it’s like I’ll be a real adult haha. I’ve already started planning my party to celebrate, I’m competing with all these Brides!

5. What do you love most about Young Love Events?

The people I meet! I have met so many great people and it’s been so fun! I’m really not a social person so YLE has helped me jump out the box. I’ve developed close relationships with some of my brides and love that I connect with people on a deeper level.

Well folks that’s it! Thank you again for all of your support and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and like us on Facebook. We will be doing a giveaway today to celebrate so make sure you’re following us! Here’s just a couple shots from our weddings this past year, thank you again!
