I can’t tell you how thankful I am for you. Last night was amazing. Truly. You were my rock. And you knew exactly what to say and when to say it. From smuggling in Prosecco to hand writing place cards to protecting my peace. You Nellie Sparkman are a supernova and I love you.

What I was looking for in all of my vendors were teams who were kind, enthusiastic, organized and could take my vision, run with it and make it even better. Nellie's team did all of that and more, and she was an absolute joy to work with throughout our engagement. She knows everyone in the industry, and she knows all of the secrets. Wedding planning is stressful, and having a planner who has your back AND has all of the inside information is a life saver. Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives, and so much of that was due to Nellie's support, inspiration and creativity. 

"Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives"


 We got raving reviews from our family about how amazing and professional she was. If you are looking for a wedding planner that shows passion and love for this business, someone who treats you like a friend during your most stressful days with no judgement, someone who is constantly supportive, has great ideas and professional- Nellie will be your biggest cheerleader and your best decision!

From the moment we connected I knew that everything would be flawless. Nellie went above & beyond to make sure everything, big to small, was perfect. Her list of vendors, her knowledge, and her experience are unbelievable. She is so easy to talk to and to be around and it was almost like she knew what I was thinking before I even said it. She created the most stress-free day & wedding environment. Not only is Nellie amazing, but so is her team. They are a true reflection of her! I know without a doubt that our wedding day would not have been as perfect as it was without Nellie and her team by our side! I can't think her enough :) If you need a wedding planner, Nellie Sparkman is your girl!!

"Not only is Nellie amazing, but so is her team"


She helped make big ideas into practical, beautiful reality, and helped keep me organized throughout the process. A few things (apparently) went awry, but I never knew because Nellie and her team made sure everything was PERFECT. She kept me happy and calm...and even sewed a groomsman's pants who split before the ceremony! I mean, come on! Nellie teared up when I was walking down the aisle and I could truly see how much she loves her job and how much she cares about her brides and the whole process.
