Shannon + Phil’s St. Patty’s Day Wedding at the gorgeous Green Acre was definitely one of our favorites for this year. They were a dream couple to work with and together we designed a stunning event. Below is Shannon’s personal words about her NGE experience. For S+P’s full wedding gallery and blog click here!
From the Bride:
“We hired Nicole George Event Planning & Design about one month into our engagement for full service wedding planning and over just nine short months, Nicole and her team were able to help us have the wedding of our dreams at Green Acre Campus Pointe in San Diego! From my very first phone conversation with Nicole, I knew I was in great hands. She is not only a truly kind and gentle person with an excellent design eye, she has the professional event planning experience to back up her business. She is a consummate professional who helped guide us through the daunting process of finding the right vendors (flowers, rentals, lighting, band, beauty, officiant, photographer, videographer, transportation…there is a lot to juggle here!), sticking to a timeline of tasks (when to send save the dates, when to send invitations, when to order suit rentals, when to schedule dress fittings, when to buy gifts for the wedding party, when to pay all of the vendors, when to get the marriage license, etc.), making tough decisions (how many tiers should the cake be? should I get a band or a DJ? What do we do if it rains?!), and stepping in to offer her guidance when needed, always keeping our best interests in mind. I also really appreciated that Nicole was always early to our appointments and she did a great job keeping the meetings on track and asking event-related questions I would have never even known to think about. Having Nicole’s help during the months leading up to our wedding was a huge value in itself, but perhaps the most valuable of all was how Nicole completely took the reigns at the rehearsal dinner and on our wedding day so all we had to worry about was having the times of our lives with our friends and family. I can honestly say I felt zero stress on my wedding day and was able to be 100% present because I had complete trust in Nicole and her incredible team to execute our vision with grace and style, and they truly delivered a magical day we will always remember.”
