This was the best money I spent on anything for our wedding. Right from the beginning, Briana was quick to respond and answer any of my initial questions. We then met in person and she introduced me to Sara, who would be my month of coordinator. Sara is absolutely amazing, she is detail oriented, down to earth, funny, and personable. She worked well with all of my vendors. My photographer and reception venue said they "did not like wedding coordinators" but after they met and worked with Sara they were singing her praises by the end. My photographer even said "I wish I could write her a positive review and it's not even my wedding." She calmed my nerves in the weeks leading up to the wedding, always answered emails and texts quickly, and really got to know us as a couple and what we wanted our big day to be about. She came to our rehearsal and met the rest of the bridal party. She attended the rehearsal dinner and learned more about all the bridesmaids so that the hectic morning of ran more smoothly. She helped me make good decisions about things that I might have otherwise overlooked or wasted my time on. I can't say enough wonderful things about Sara and Nouvelle Weddings. They are absolute perfection and I highly recommend them to every bride!
The absolute best decision I made during the wedding process was selecting Briana and her team as my wedding planner. Not a second when by that I thought I had made a mistake. Briana made sure every detail of my wedding was perfect. The day of the wedding I felt absolutely no stress because I knew Briana and her team had everything under control. In all honesty, I wasn't sure that I would even need a wedding planner, but decided to talk to a few wedding planners to see what they had to offer. Briana mentioned so many things in that initial meeting that I never considered and decided to book her that day. I am so thankful I made that decision.
This service is amazing!!! Our wedding day ended up going perfectly because of Briana Dixon and her team :D
I cannot say enough good things about Briana and her whole team. While I very much appreciated working with her during the whole year leading up to the wedding (she is the BEST at responding to emails!), her organizational and management skills were really on display for the actual wedding (go figure). I had multiple people tell me that it was the best organized wedding they had ever attended. More than that, knowing that all the details were in Briana’s very capable hands helped me to be able to be relax and celebrate with my friends, family, and husband. That was the most important thing to me. I would absolutely choose Briana and her whole team again!!
Working with Briana of Nouvelle Weddings was the best decision we made during the planning process! From the first time we met with her, we were confident she would be able to help us plan the wedding we wanted! She was actively engaged throughout our entire 18 month engagement and kept us on track with checklists and tasks. She responded promptly to questions and took care of last minute concerns with ease and poise. I highly recommend Nouvelle Weddings for wedding coordination!
One of the absolute superstars of our wedding was Sara of Nouvelle Weddings. We were not considering a wedding planner/day-of coordinator until we saw how smoothly my sister's wedding ran under the tutelage of an experienced professional. We wanted somebody to run the show, but within our budget. Enter: Sara! She was amazing, laid-back, and extremely competent. We had some challenges getting permission for our wedding party to enter the Naval Academy for photography. My husband, an academy grad, was calling everybody and anybody to get someone to help out. We thought that this might be something Sara could help with, so we reached out to her, and she had already sorted it out! We were so impressed and very grateful. With her at the helm, our entire day was smooth-sailing. She's a total go-getter and a wonderfully calming presence. We are so thankful that we had her on our side to make our big day enjoyable and relaxing for all involved. My husband remarked that he had originally thought this was an unnecessary expense. Once he saw Sara in action, he told me he now understands why people should hire wedding coordinators. I think that's the ultimate testimony!! Five stars for Sara at Nouvelle Weddings - she's incredible and we'd recommend to anyone!!
Absolutely FabulousReviewed on 10/18/2015 Kathleen W
There can’t possibly be enough words in the English language for me to describe how wonderful Nouvelle Weddings is. But I will try. My husband and I did the majority of the planning of our wedding ourselves, and I truly believed that because our wedding was so simple, we would be able to handle the wedding day ourselves. As we got closer to the big day, I realized I actually did want help. Sara ended up being our day of coordinator, and I couldn’t have been happier with the amazing job she did. Sara ran our wedding beautifully and allowed my husband and me to truly enjoy our wedding without a care. She was there to help with the rehearsal, and did a phenomenal job managing the bridal party and the families. We had the absolute best time at our wedding, and we owe a huge part of that to Sara and Nouvelle. To this day, my husband still tells me how much it was worth it to have her there. Even to those who have the simplest of weddings, the peace of mind is worth every penny, and Nouvelle’s expertise makes for a worry free wedding. Thank you Sara and Nouvelle Weddings!!!
Briana is the BEST!Reviewed on 9/30/2013 Ashley E
My husband and I were fortunate to stumble upon Nouvelle Weddings & Events looking through wedding blogs. Our reception venue was only rental space so we decided to look into day-of coordination. We loved Nouvelle's package options as they had different variations of services to fit our needs. We chose a package with day-of coordination with some advice/help during the planning process. In addition to the variety of services, Briana is incredible! She was so responsive to our emails, organized, and creative! She went above and beyond to help us with ideas to develop our theme and decor. She was our "go to" person with etiquette questions. She kept us on track with monthly planning checklists. We used a lot of her vendor recommendations and they all proved to be just as incredible as her. With Briana's advice and recommendations, our team of vendors (including herself) made the day PERFECT. Briana's rehearsal and wedding day coordination was seamless and we could not have had such an amazing day without her and her team. I did not have to worry about a thing on the day of the wedding. If something went wrong, we did not even know about it! She is the best! My husband and I believe that hiring Nouvelle Wedding & Events was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made. Hire them and you will too! :)
suezanne and doug's weddingReviewed on 7/16/2013 suezanne g
My husband I have been married since May, and Briana made our special day run smoothly! She was totally on top of things and very professional. She made sure mine and my husbands needs were met. Briana also had so many contacts and got us amazing deals, she knew who had the best prices and which vendors would fit with us. Briana definitely went above and beyond! After meeting with many different wedding planners, I'm glad we chose Briana, she was hands down the most friendly and professional and if you want your big to be stress-free and a dream come true, I promise you Nouvelle Weddings in the way to go!! Thanks again Briana we couldn't have done it without you!!
my dream wedding was a sucessReviewed on 6/19/2013 amy s
Briana made my wedding dreams come true. I was a firm believer that I could plan a wedding and be stress free, but after reading different things about how helpful wedding planners are I decided to go with the best and in my mind Briana was the best. After first meeting with her I knew she knew her stuff. And if you think weddings can be stress free, you're wrong, but Briana helped remove all the stress, she took care of it all and helped me get organized, she helped me find my DJ, florist, photographer and caterer. Briana made sure everything went perfectly and my wedding day was relaxed for me and my husband, she helped me have my perfect wedding. I highly recommend using her, not only is she knowledgeable but she is one of the nicest people I've ever met, I promise any future brides out there you will not be disappointed with her work!!
Outstanding jobReviewed on 5/14/2013 Laurie R
My husband and I hired Briana as our day of coordinator and she did a fabulous job. She was on the ball with every last detail. We met about a month before the wedding to go over everything and she left me a list of some details that I would have overlooked had it not been for her. She was extremely kind and patient throughout everything and helped to calm my nerves on the actual wedding day right before I went into the church (and to say I was nervous is an understatement). Briana typed up a very detailed itinerary that kept us all on track throughout the day. She was in touch with all of our vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page as far as times and schedule. As a bride you have so much going through your mind, especially during the final stretch, and I can say that hiring Nouvelle for our day of coordination really helped to put my mind at ease and for things to run smoothly on our big day. Even my husband, who is not easily impressed, raved about what a great job Briana did. If we had to do it again I'd probably hire her to be even more involved in the planning process. Big thank you to Nouvelle Weddings and Events!!
Best in the business!!Reviewed on 11/02/2012 Morgan R
Briana of Nouvelle Weddings was absolutely amazing and really helped us create the perfect day. She emailed me every month to see how we were doing with planning and even helped us pick great vendors. Then when our wedding venue cancelled three weeks before our wedding, she helped us rearrange every detail. I would not have survived without her. Everyone commented how smoothly everything went!! Briana was awesome,affordable, and the best wedding gift I could have asked for!! I already recommended her to all of my friends:)
Thank you Briana!Reviewed on 10/16/2012 Kerry O
Briana was a dream! We were engaged for over a year and a half, and throughout the entire period she was always available to talk, meet, and resolve issues. With her expertise, we got the best vendors - several of whom offered discounts because of their relationship with her, and others we NEVER would have found without her. Neither I nor my husband are naturally organized, and we both have super demanding careers. We absolutely never would have pulled off such an extraordinary, wonderful-to-the-last-minute event without Briana. From the beginning, she listened to what we wanted and incorporated every element into the overall plan. I estimate we traded at least 300 emails - she listened to us (and by us, I kind of mean me), and what we wanted as a couple. Crucially, she kept everything organized - all vendor contracts, payments due, every signed document, every deposit - she tracked every nickel to keep us within budget (it's SO easy to derail, or get lured into "upgrades" offered by vendors). Briana had invaluable insight into how to deal with the vendors we relied on to make our wedding unforgettable - she knew the right questions to ask, thought of every angle, and we benefitted from her experience. Our site had an event coordinator, and while this person was also helpful, Briana coordinated from our perspective - she was interested in getting what WE wanted, what was in our best interests. Briana knew how to make it perfect for us. She sent us alerts when payments were due, sent me periodic task checklists, reminded us to provide song lists/menu choices/etc. when due, and gave us important and practical advice. We told her that the most important thing to us was that no one stress out or have panic attacks over the wedding - we had plenty of time to plan, but we knew how all those last minute details can quickly become overwhelming if you don't plan properly (which we had no idea how to do) - that's where Briana shined! If there was any issue during the wedding, we had no idea! One of the best things she did was to serve as a buffer between me, my parents, bridesmaids, etc. - emotions tend to run very high at these things - and through Briana we could get a neutral, objective, fair assessment to guide us through all hot-item decisions. I wanted a photo booth, Mom thought they were "tacky" - Briana told us about previous weddings where they were a big hit, that they were popular, made for great souvenirs and pictures, etc. - Mom ended up loving it, as did everyone at the wedding. Every time some issue came up that caused friction, we could just ask Briana - is this really important? What's the proper way to do this? Is this feasible, practical, or worth putting effort into? She had pointed, intelligent answers for everything, so we didn't have to argue. I really can't say enough wonderful things about Briana, I could go on for hours. Get a wedding planner!! You will save money, time, stress and family feuding, and you'll end up with the best wedding you could possibly have, and it will be yours. Thank you Briana! A million times thank you!!
Kinnaird weddingReviewed on 9/19/2012 lasand r
Fantastic! There are no words to express the service I received from Briana. Over the past year I have made a friend. She was by our side with every decision we made. She went above and beyond and never complained. I love her and would recommend her services to every bride.
Planning a big Greek weddingReviewed on 7/14/2012 stavroula l
When I started looking for wedding planners Briana was the first one I met up with. After discussing the wedding with her I had decided that I did not want to meet with any other planner. For some reason we really clicked and I got a good feeling from her. Well, thank God I made that decision! Together we planned one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen. For weeks after the wedding my parents were getting calls from friends just to say how amazed they were with everything and that they have never been to such a beautiful wedding before. One woman even said it was an aristocratic event! Briana took the time to understand what I wanted and to learn what my taste was. She was never shy in giving her honest opinion which she always took into consideration what my style is, and I really appreciated that. I knew nothing about planning a wedding and working with vendors and if it wasn't for Briana, as my husband says, "you would've had a nervous break down if it wasn't for Briana!" So many girls around me told me not to hire a wedding planner bc it is unnecessary, and I am so thankful that I didn't listen to any of them. In the end they admitted to being wrong and told me how they should've hired a wedding planner when they got married. I hired Briana to take care of everything from start to finish, and every time I had to pick vendors to choose from she would always send me first, the ones that she has worked with before and knows that they do a good job, and then a few more that seemed to be my style as well. If I was not pleased with them she would send me a list of another few vendors to look at. I never felt pressured and I always felt like it was all about me, which is exactly how it should be. On the day of the wedding Briana was everywhere, making sure everything was running smoothly. She stopped by the venue, came by the house to make sure I was ok and to see if I needed anything, and also to go over the plans for the day. Then off she went to the church to help set up the decorations. She stayed throughout the whole ceremony and then left to finalize everything at the venue before everyone arrived and stayed the whole night until it was over. If you are contemplating whether or not to hire a wedding planner, I say DO IT and Briana is the person to get the job done!
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Briana is excellent at what she doesReviewed on 7/05/2012 Nikki K
Briana was SUCH a great planner, from the first day we met until after the wedding, very easy to work with, and just makes you at ease, no matter what's going on :-) She had tons of great ideas and always knew just what to do to make it just right. She was fantastic on the wedding day, helped me so much, even when I was freaking out. I would recommend her to anyone planning any event. Definitely. One of the things we liked most about her is her quick responses to all of our questions. She always gets back to you right away, and helped with everything from etiquette questions to bridesmaid drama! She was invaluable to us, so happy we went with her, and our wedding day was perfect. Better than I ever imagined it would be - so happy with everything.
Amazing planning!Reviewed on 6/20/2012 Sarah W
If you are even considering a planner, hire Briana now! She is the absolute best- organized, fun to work with, quick to respond to emails (no matter how insignificant they may be) and efficient. Briana at Nouvelle made it easy for me and my family to relax and enjoy the big day without worrying about all the details- we knew she would keep everything going smoothly. I am somebody who didn't know a whole lot about the wedding planning process when I got engaged, and her helpful tips and excellent vendor recommendations made things so much easier for me.
Enjoyable wedding planningReviewed on 6/01/2012 Theodora V
Briana of Nouvelle Weddings and Events is wonderful to work with. My husband and I opted to go with the full wedding package and couldn't have been more pleased. Briana had some great suggestions for venues, florists, and bands. She was also extraordinarily organized, which helped make our wedding planning process very smooth. On the day of, she kept everything running smoothly and my husband and I didn't have to worry about a single thing. I would absolutely recommend Nouvelle Weddings and Events to any brides-to-be in the Central PA/Baltimore area!
Karen & Micah: New Year's Eve weddingReviewed on 1/10/2012 Terry W
Briana Dixon is the best! Even though we had a 'day of' contract, Briana, from the very beginning, was able to get us in touch with fabulous vendors and great prices. The day of the wedding was coordinated down to the last little detail and I didn't have to worry about a thing - it all went together so well even to the midnight count down for New Year's Eve. Briana is very easy to work with, personable and her prices are reasonable - she gives you a feeling of confidence from the very beginning. She is both timely and responsive to email as well as telephone and quickly resolves any questions or concerns. I loved working with Briana and my daughter, Briana recognized that we were a team, and together the three of us made a beautiful wedding at the Tremont Grand. We had three different rooms for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, each one more beautiful than the last and Briana worked very well with the hotel coordinator and their staff to make that happen. I received many compliments from attendees about what a good time they had, in large part because of our outstanding band that Briana recommended. Guests commented about the classic style of our decor, the attention to every detail and yet they recognized and commented on how very comfortable the setting was, not overdone, and what a great party it was. An especially important comment was from a former event planner who was a guest and who had personally coordinated over a thousand events; he gave us an A+! I was initially against the idea of a private wedding coordinator since the hotel was providing a coordinator as well, but my daughter insisted so as to make our wedding planning and 'day of' as stressless for me as possible so I too would have a good time - Briana made that happen!
Working with Briana was Fabulous!Reviewed on 9/14/2011 Dana G
Briana and her assistant were undeniably the best investment we could have made on our wedding day! She went above and beyond to make our day perfect. Our wedding was held at a location that required us to bring and set-up everything. Briana made the place look beautiful and even went to get ice when we ran out. She was so professional and 'on the ball' the whole day. Our group was a bit 'excited' and she did a great job making sure everyone was in place and that everyone was where they were suppose to be. She's so easy to work with too! Dana & Charlie (9/4/11)
Briana is incredible - she made our day perfect!Reviewed on 7/08/2011 Cara O
It is hard to put into words just how amazing Briana and Nouvelle were throughout the entire wedding process. We hired Briana for day-of coordination, which thanks to her was perfect, but she was always available and willing to help. Her attention to details that I hadn't even thought of was so helpful. And, being a planner myself, I loved the intineraries and lists that she put together. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her. Even before the week of the wedding, Briana was happy to address my questions and concerns (very promptly) and help us in whatever way we needed. Prior to the wedding, she communicated with all of our venders, as well as with us, to make sure everything was set. On the day of the wedding, the limo company made a fairly significant change and Briana took care of it promptly and efficiently, which was a life saver. Overall, everything was PERFECT. We had a lot of extra "stuff" from our wedding - flip flops, koozies, cookie favors, unique escort cards, etc. - and Briana took care of everything, plus all of the usual wedding coordination. She really went above and beyond in every way. They were very professional but also very fun work with! I honestly cannot say enough great things about Briana and her team. Not only were my husband and I able to relax knowing that Briana was taking care of everything, our families and wedding party were able to sit back and enjoy the wedding, which was so great. I think my mom and bridesmaids loved Briana as much as I did! I HIGHLY recommend Briana and Nouvelle. They completely exceeded my expectations and made sure that our wedding was perfect. I cannot thank them enough for everything that they did!
Briana is amazing!!Reviewed on 7/01/2011 Carolyn C
I am not sure where to start in describing how fantastic Briana was our wedding coordinator on the day of our wedding and also helped us in the weeks leading up to our day. There are times in life when something happens to you that allows another door to open and cause something wonderful to occur....that happened to us when we met and decided to hire Briana. Long story short the wedding planner we had worked with at our venue resigned 3weeks before our wedding and the club had a very poor and unconvincing replacement. We were so lucky that Briana was available for our day. Please note I am a very typical type A personality and to say Briana had it all under control was an understatement! She is so organized and has this really lovely way about her that makes you feel comfortable handing over the reigns to the big day. Briana ensured our day went smoothly, she was helpful and a real pleasure to have around. I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone. Thank you Briana for helping to make our day so perfect!
Amazing wedding day---owed to Nouvelle!Reviewed on 4/07/2011 Allison M
To any bride that thinks they don't need any help on the day of, think again! I knew going into wedding planning that we wanted someone to help us on our behalf, not just from the venue or hotel perspective. After our venue turned out to be less than helpful, I was so grateful that Briana was there to help us out! After our initial meeting, I knew Briana was going to be our DOC. She has the experience, is extremely professional, and had great suggestions! Briana was there for our rehearsal and the entire day of the wedding---helping confirm all the vendors and assisting with set-up, take down, and timeline planning. The best e-mail back from Briana? "It's been taken care of!" The biggest bonus of having her there was actually being able to ENJOY my own wedding. She got there the day of the wedding with her assistant (who was also a doll!) and I simply gave her everything and trusted her to make it happen. If she wasn't there, I don't know what we would have done---honestly. Briana is not only worth the money, but her services were an integral piece of the wedding day. All of our family members commented on how professional she was as well as how sweet and caring and personable she came across. Nouvelle Weddings and Events single-handedly made the difference in our wedding day and making it so special!
Day of CoordinatorReviewed on 12/12/2010 Stephanie T
I used Brianna for my day of coordinator. I had everything planned (and the venue took care of a lot of details) and just needed someone to get people where they needed to be and do a few set up type things. She was available to day before and day of for whatever I needed. Professional and helpful.
Briana is the best!Reviewed on 12/03/2010 Tamara A
Briana was my day-of coordinator. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. On the wedding day I didn't have to worry about anything, she made sure that everything went smoothly. Before the wedding she was extremely helpful and went above and beyond what was required. She was very organized and very responsive to emails and phone calls. I would highly recommend Briana and Nouvelle Weddings and Events.

Weddings are my passion and I feel so fortunate that I get to do something I love every day of my life! I love the personal aspect of my job, and my emails often contain way too many exclamation points, ellipses, and smiley faces. With 10+ years of experience in the wedding industry, my expertise lies in creating unique and personal weddings, through which each couple’s unique personality and identity can shine. That means getting to know each couple well, which I think makes our service all the more personal. It’s all about you!
