Nouvelle Weddings was absolutely a dream to work with! Briana is extremely creative, knowledgeable, and effective at planning the most perfect wedding from beginning to end! She does not miss a beat and covers all the details that entail this very special day and time! I was able to work closely with Briana everyday leading up to my wedding, over the course of six months, in order to turn all of my visions into a reality. She was always there to help me problem solve and make the best decision. Her experience and expertise was evident not only in the planning, but the execution of each detail on my actual wedding day. Her team was lovely, kind, and enthusiastic and I am very grateful to have made the choice to have Nouvelle Weddings plan my dream wedding! Nouvelle Weddings made the planning process exceptionally joyful! Briana was always there to chat with me via phone, email or text and we met several times leading up to the wedding at my house, over dinner, at vendors, and at the venue. She would help me brainstorm and finalize decisions with the utmost patience and every vendor she interacted with would relay many compliments to me about her professionalism and kindness. I not only found a wedding planner, but someone who became a trusted friend! Thank you SO MUCH, Nouvelle Weddings! My husband and I, along with our family and friends are incredibly grateful for the magical day you helped create on 12.16.17! I'm envious of all the Nouvelle brides to come- they have so much to look forward to! Thank you again for the memories and JOY you brought to our lives! xoxo
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.
Briana and her staff are absolutely amazing! I would have been lost without them. I lost my venue about a year before my wedding and Briana was there to the rescue calling other venues and finding me options that would allow my caterer and had my date and time available. She didn't miss any detail when planning my wedding. She helped me pick everything...food, florist, floral arrangements, linens, venue setup, transportation, lighting, accommodations, and more! Crystal stepped up big time when she was put in charge of my wedding only a week before my wedding due to some unfortunate circumstances. She covered every detail with me, and our wedding day was perfect! Everything went so smoothly! Crystal even hunted down my bouquet days after my wedding and met me with it so I could preserve it. They went above and beyond for us. I would highly recommend them for anyone's wedding planning needs!
I believe that Sara and Brianna are absolute angels! I get very anxious in certain situations and Sara did everything possible to make sure I was calm and collected on my wedding day. In the planning process, they helped me and didn't let me miss a beat! The day of the wedding, I didn't have to worry about anything and it was all taken care of perfectly. I cannot thank Sara and her team enough. Thank you.
Crystal helped my wife and I plan our wedding from across the country. I went to school in annapolis, but my wife had never been. Crystal expertly managed all of our vendors throughout the process and ensured perfection on our wedding day. Because our wedding was at the Naval Academy Chapel, Crystal focused on the reception at the Chart House. I dropped off the reception supplies the day prior and walked around the reception venue for the first time. It was great, the views were fantastic and the staff was friendly. When we arrived at the reception after our wedding, Crystal had completely transformed the restaurant into perfection. It was better than I could have imagined. I highly recommend Crystal and her staff to anyone planning a wedding in the Annapolis area.
If you are looking for a stress free wedding you need to hire Briana and Crystal! I planned my entire wedding from overseas and I could not imagine doing it with anyone other than Crystal! The end product, perfection.
IF there is truly an angel from above, it is Sara from Nouvelle. Sara was our day of coordinator for my daughter's recent wedding and was a pure godsend. I had hired Nouvelle over a year before the wedding. Briana was wonderful checking in with me periodically if I needed any recommendations along the way. A little before a month before, we were assigned Sara as our coordinator. We met with her a month before the wedding and she took care of listening to our vision and getting all of our details. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought she would have done everything we needed to. She was AMAZING and a life saver to our party . When our chairs were delivered to early and they couldn't get in, Sara was there to help coordinate a second delivery. When the grooms transportation was an hour late, there was Sara picking up the groom to get him to the first look in time so the day could go on. And there was Sara, too, with countless little details that I had dreamed of that she put to be a reality. When my daughter was concerned about the sweetheart table being in the way of the dance floor when the music started, there was Sara and her team, whisking it away in a matter of seconds. Sara and her girls made our night perfect . IF there is ever a doubt on money well spent, it is right here. Don't have a party without Nouvelle!!! Many thanks from the bottom of our hearts!
My wife and I could not have been happier working with Nouvelle! We did full service and gladly say it was worth every penny. Briana was incredible. She worked with us through all of the difficult parts, and helped guide our vision for our wedding to make it a reality. Her eye for detail and design is just incredible, no other way to say it. It can be overwhelming how many things you do not know when planning a wedding, we could not have done it without her and Nouvelle. My wife and I agree that our wedding was PERFECT!!! Crystal worked with us the day of. She was absolutely amazing too! She worked with the vendors and had everything set up exactly the way we had dreamed of. It allowed us to enjoy our time getting ready, and preparing for the ceremony instead of worrying about set up. She was also critical in allowing our ceremony and reception to run like clockwork. Less Stress!! Thanks to impeccable planning with Briana, and Crystal's day of expertise, our wedding went off without a hitch.... Literally PERFECT!!! It was the best day of our lives, and we owe it all to Briana, Crystal and Nouvelle Weddings!
5 stars for Nouvelle - I am a control freak, anxious planner and Crystal made my life so much easier and went above and beyond. Any problem that came up prior to and on my wedding day she handled as well as so much coordinating. Because of her I could enjoy my day and not worry about a single thing. Worth every single penny!!!
I can't even describe the value of having a coordinator for one's wedding; I honestly don't know how we would have pulled it off without Brianna and her team. Anyone who knows me well would tell you I'm the most organized and type-A personality they've ever met. Despite this fact, I had no idea how to go about organizing our wedding rehearsal or logistics of the actual day. My husband and I hired Nouvelle Weddings for this purpose, which it accomplished magnificently. We were shocked to realize, however, the true value lay in our ability to simply enjoy our wedding day and appreciate each fleeting moment.
I needed to find a wedding planner replacement at the last minute and Briana from Nouvelle Weddings found me Crystal who jumped in and saved the day. She was very professional and proactive! The whole team at Nouvelle Wedding was professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend!!
Briana and her team were absolutely incredible. We planned our wedding from a distance (live in the midwest and got married on the east coast) so we were looking for a wedding planner that would help us through things from a distance. From day 1, she was responsive and already providing insights to make our planning easier. She helped coordinate a trip our east to meet with all of our vendors and accompanied us on some vendor meetings. Leading up to the big day, she was with us every step of the way. She worked extremely well with all of our vendors and our pastor. She coordinated with them to ensure that our wedding was flawless and perfect. For the reception, she took care of every little detail with the appearance, schedule, and guests. We were able to devote 100% of our attention to our families and guests because we knew that she had everything on lockdown. Hiring Nouvelle weddings was the best decision that we made! Thank you Nouvelle Weddings!!!!
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.

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!
