Nicole is the Storybook founder and the woman able to foresee challenges and strategically solve any hiccups in planning. She has planned hundreds of weddings and knows how to move people through the flow of the evening with integrity and grace.
Living between Austin and Chicago, Nicole loves the diversity of her weddings and values developing strong relationships with her couples. Many have become lifelong friends.
Nicole found a passion for making her couple's wedding visions come to life and has developed Storybook’s in-depth experience for the (maximum of four) couples that she works with per year.
Whether you want a gentle, calming wedding planner or want to go cheers over beers, Nicole can flex to match the planning energy you need. With her, nothing is impossible.
Nicole is a mom to two sweet boys, and is grateful each and every day for her husband who has supported her business journey over the past seven years. In her free time, you can find Nicole designing home interiors or inviting close friends over for her epic cheese and wine pairings.
From the very beginning of our time together each moment is personalized and nuances noted.
No detail is overlooked. Down to the decorative icecubes during cocktail hour.
When I say your wedding is uniquely yours,
I mean it.
Sketching and translating your vision to a more comprehensible visual for our vendors is a key part of our design process.
Whether its a non alcoholic spritzer or popping bottles over oysters, I prefer to make wedding planning an experience.
What's your drink of choice?
I live in Austin, Texas (I enjoy sunshine too much!), but work up to four weddings in Chicago per year.
The cost of travel to and from Chicago are included in the cost of our package pricing as I'm there often!
Here at Storybook Weddings and Events we honor and cherish the uniqueness of each and every one of our couples.
We love celebrating our couples and do not host any space for hate or judgement.
In addition, we hold each of our vendors accountable to the same values and only work with LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC friendly vendors.
Your path to the altar is longer than your walk down the aisle. Together we will ensure a smooth and enjoyable planning process that ends with an unforgettable party.
At Storybook, we value timeless design. So much so that it makes up one of the four facets of our planning process. If you believe in timeless design too, we would love to share 20 beautiful color palettes, carefully curated, just for you.
