Monica and her team are amazing. They helped my husband and I create the dream wedding we prayed for. Their quality of work is impeccable and I would not change anything. Monica made sure I, as the Bride felt comfortable and had no worries on our big day! More...

Monica went above and beyond to make sure our day ran smoothly and everything was in order. If there were any issues I didn’t know about them. A job well done!

Nouveau Events was the best decision that we made for our wedding! We were planning from afar, which can be stressful, but each time we talked to Monica, she made us feel calm because it is clear that she is an expert and truly cares about each couple that she works with. We hired Monica and Nouveau Events for day of coordination for our March wedding at the Graylyn Estate in Winston-Salem and she ensured that everything went off without a hitch. It made it possible for us to truly enjoy our wedding weekend without unnecessary stress or last minute worries. We cannot recommend Monica enough. Thank you for being a huge part of making our wedding weekend so special! - Katie & Joe More...

What an event planner! Experienced and professional is what describes Monica! We look forward to using her as our planner. Her packages are customizable and her location in Knightdale is an easy drive. We really enjoyed our consulation and we look forward to planning with her and her staff. If you do it do it! Planning is an extra expense but feels the extra is needed and will be beneficial in all ways. More...

We would highly recommend Nouveau Events. Monica did an astounding job planning and executing our wedding. Monica went above and beyond the call of duty. We could not have found a better wedding planner than Monica. She is simply AMAZING!!!! Monica has a great eye for detail and her ability to focus on meticulous details throughout our planning process is impeccable. We wished we had hired her at the beginning stages of our planning. It would have saved us a lot of unnecessary headache and stress. Monica all we can say is "THANK YOU!!! More...

We live about 2 hours away from Durham, where our wedding took place, so it was crucial that we had someone we could count on and trust to help us with all of the details of the pre-wedding planning process. We met Monica ( proprietor of Nouveau Events) at a bridal show in Raliegh and she seemed to be the most professional and creative one there. Later on we looked at her website and we were sold. To say that she exceeded our expectations is a gross understatement. From the moment we signed the contract, she was an integral part of our wedding. She coached us on vendor choices, set up appointments (this was very important because we needed to be able to visit multiple vendors on our short visits in town), kept up with our timeline, advised us on decisions, handled the myriad details that one often forgets about when trying to coordinate an event like this, and executed our wedding day flawlessly. There was only one time when we did not take Monica's advice, and it is the only part of our wedding that we think could have been improved. Our vision came to fruition EXACTLY as we had imagined it would, and then some. We could not have done it without Monica and her team. More...

Wow where do I begin? Every since the initial meeting I knew Monica was going to be the planner for me. She was very organized and detailed, and that was right up my alley. During the past twelve months she has went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our big day. On the BIG DAY she kept everything flowing and even when some unexpected additions to the itinerary happened she coordinated it all so flawlessly that it went off without a hitch. Planning a wedding is hard work but I was so blessed to have Monica and her team every step of the way. I would highly recommend Monica to any couple regardless of their planning abilities, because her insight was always a nice addition to our thoughts and ideas!!! More...

I wish I had six stars to give Nouveau Events! Seriously, stop searching for a wedding planner/coordinator right now. They are the very best.

I first met Monica a year ago at a wedding show in Raleigh, and she immediately impressed me. Personable, funny, smart, and ALL business. From our very first meeting with her, I knew we had made the right choice in hiring her to coordinate our October wedding in Downtown Raleigh at Caffe Luna. My only mistake was not splurging and allowing her to plan the entire wedding.

She's not just a day-of coordinator. She's a month-of coordinator. About a month before the wedding, after we had planned what we thought was every single detail, she got in touch with us and rocked our world. There were SO many details that we hadn't even considered. She thought of everything, helped us tie together the loose ends, confirmed all of our vendors, and made the final month before our wedding so smooth and easy.

Our day was picture perfect. I was able to enjoy every single moment while Monica and her team worked quietly in the background to make sure that everything came together just as it should. Everything was stress-free. Not a single thing went forgotten. We were able to enjoy the day without having to stress about getting vendors checked in, setting up decorations, coordinating flower drop-off, getting everyone -- both big and small -- down the aisle. They took care of it all. Not only were we impressed, but all of our friends and family could not stop raving about them.

DO NOT try to plan your wedding by yourself. A wedding coordinator is the single-most important investment you can make in your big day. And honestly, if I could change anything about it, I would have hired her to plan the entire thing. I cannot recommend Nouveau Events enough. They were truly phenomenal.

I'm not even sure where to begin.

I'll start by explaining what my husband and I wanted:

- To fully enjoy the wedding planning process.
- To be at peace on the wedding day with no last minute mishaps.
- To have a bomb wedding that our loved ones would thoroughly enjoy.

I googled: "Best Wedding Coordinators in NC."

Nouveau Events came up and I read the reviews. I felt comfortable with what I read and contacted them.

Monica has become much more in my heart and mind than a wedding coordinator. If you are looking for a top notch wedding coordinator in NC, you're wasting your time by looking any further. This is it. Monica is it. Nouveau Events is all. You. Need.

From our first conversation I got a sense of clarity, peace, reliability, and organization. Monica was the epitome of all of those qualities.
I had dreamt of a rustic wedding since I got engaged, and Monica brought all of my ideas to life. She understands the importance of detail, and seems to not have the word "forget" or "procrastinate" anywhere near her brand.

Monica and your team- My husband and I are still amazed by everything you've done for us. Thank you so so much, and we will not hesitate to give your brand the stellar recommendation you deserve.

Nouveau Events were truly helpful in making our wedding and reception a success! Monica Noa and her team worked very well together to make sure that our wedding and reception ran very smoothly and efficiently in a professional matter. I would highly recommend Nouveau Events to any couple that needs assistance in wedding planning and coordination.

Nouveau Events has truly made our ceremony one that we will remember for a lifetime and generations to come!

Monica and her Nouveau Events team did an amazing job for our wedding! My wife and I originally thought we would be able to handle our own wedding planning and coordination but realized how much of challenge that was proving to be. We were referred to Nouveau Events from a family friend who spoke highly of their work. Given the short timeline of our engagement, Monica and her team were still able to pull off the wedding of our dreams. Monica stayed on top of [everything] during the entire process, down to the day of the wedding. My wife and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. She made sure our wedding ran smoothly and if there were any hiccups, we were not privy to it. All in all, I would highly recommend Nouveau Events to anyone looking for assistance with their wedding needs. No matter what your budget may be, they will work with you to make sure your day is one to remember. More...

Our experience with Monica and her team was phenomenal! Monica is well-connected and well-respected in the wedding industry in Raleigh, which is exactly what we needed. Our daughter (the bride) now lives in Raleigh, but we (the parents) don't, so neither of us had the necessary network to get things done (and to make the right choices) - Monica bridged that gap for us. She was on top of things from the very first meeting we had with her, and no details slipped by. Monica did her very best to understand and implement our daughter's vision for the wedding and to explain options that would help us stay on track with our budget. She kept us organized and focused, and stayed one step ahead of us at all times. As mother-of-the bride, I never once felt that things weren't completely under control, and this was such a blessing. The wedding was exactly as we all hoped it would be - perfect! Highly recommend Nouveau Events and Monica! More...

I really don't know how to express how happy we were to hire Monica.

I met Monica almost 2 years before my wedding date & from the first meeting with her I knew she was well organized & had answers to all my many questions.

I was so worried that something would go wrong on my wedding day & so worried that my plain old conference room would not look wedding like, but I had nothing to worry about. Monica & her team made my wedding day the best day of my life. All my friends & family enjoyed & raved about how beautiful the venue was.

I feel like Monica & I was more than a client relationship, when I communicated with her it was like talking to a girlfriend. I am so thankful for her & wish you guys nothing but the best.

Nouveau Events did an outstanding job, from the planning process to executing our vision on our wedding day. We enjoyed working with Monica, she is very responsive and organized. When we first met with Monica we knew immediately we wanted her as our wedding planner. There were times that we had concerns on various subjects and with Monica's help she was able to resolve the issue. Throughout the planning process meetings were scheduled where we would discuss the vision and details for the wedding. Monica would sit down with us and various vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. The wedding weekend was stress-free! Kira did a great job coordinating the wedding rehearsal. The wedding day was everything I could have imagined and more. Everyone talked about the amazing decor and how smoothly the wedding ceremony and reception ran.

Monica and Nouveau Events did a fantastic job planning and executing our 25th Anniversary party! I chose the day of planning package as this was for a vow renewal/anniversary party and not a wedding. I really could not have pulled off such a fabulous event without her. Both my husband and I travel frequently and really didn't have the time or energy to plan an event that involved 150+ guests of which many were from out of town. Monica did a great job keeping me on task and provided recommendations for FABULOUS vendors! She was responsive when I had questions about anything. The day of the event was completely stress free for me and my husband which allowed us to enjoy and spend time with family and friends before, during and after our event. I am still receiving compliments from our family and friends that attended our vow renewal/anniversary party about everything! We couldn't have had such an AWESOME event without Monica! More...

Monica and Kira made my wedding day experience so pleasant. I got married on Oct 22, 2017 at an outdoor ceremony at the local college near our hometown. I chose the day-of coordination package and couldn't be happier with what they were able to do for me. Most of the planning was done by me and my husband, and I was COMPLETELY burned out by the time I handed everything over to Monica and her team lol. I was anxious to see how Nouveau Events would coordinate the things that I had planned, but Monica reassured me countless times that she had it under control, and she did! She was able to turn my blank canvas venues (outdoor ceremony, indoor reception) into something with simple elegance. The wedding day was a breeze for me; it was honestly the only day during the wedding process that I wasn't completely stressed out lol, because I knew that I was in good hands. I can't thank Monica and Kira enough for their hark work, creativity, punctuality and professionalism. Future brides and grooms: you will not be let down by hiring Nouveau Events! It was worth every penny! More...

Monica and her Nouveau Events team were wonderful. My husband and I both worked full-time during our wedding planning and on a relatively short engagement timeline (engaged in July, started planning in August, secured services in September, wedding in early March) Monica planned an amazing wedding that truly exceeded our expectations. Her creative vision created a stunning aesthetic for both our ceremony and reception location. Throughout the planning Monica was a wealth of advice. She provided the best vendor recommendations, relevant insight and expertise during the decision making process. She coordinated with all of our venders and venue contacts throughout the planning process and especially in the weeks leading up to the weekend. Our wedding weekend ran smoothly, we were able to enjoy our family and friends and truly celebrate the occasion without having to worry about a thing! More...

During our engagement period, my husband and I were new parents with demanding jobs. Therefore, we knew that in order for us to have the wedding in which we desired, a wedding planner was needed to help coordinate our big day . After much research, my husband and I selected the partial package with Nouveau Events.

Planning overview:
From the beginning of the planning stages, Monica was incredibly receptive and so excited to ensure that our vision for our big day came true. She was extremely organized throughout the entire process and always delivered on every task that was required to be completed for the big day. Her poise and professionalism during vendor appointments and planning meetings truly placed her in class of her own. Two weeks before the wedding, everything was so calm. Monica had completed all of the necessary tasks and checked in on me periodically to ensure I was completely stress free.

Wedding Day Overview:
My wedding weekend was well planned. Monica provided detailed Itineraries to all our wedding party guests to ensure everyone was in the right place on both Friday and Saturday. On Saturday, our wedding day, everything ran so smoothly. Monica and her staff kept everything schedule. The wedding ceremony set-up was beautiful and the reception decor took our breath away. Our wedding guest were literally blown away by the design of our reception. Overall, Monica exceeded my expectations in every aspect. She became our family during this process and we wouldn't have had it any other way. I am so thankful that god allowed us to meet such an amazing woman. From the Battle Family, hats off to Monica and her team for planning an awesome wedding!

Monica Noa and Nouveau Events provided excellent wedding planning services. We hired Monica for the full planning service package. She was worth every penny. From the moment we hired her, she crafted a planning process that complimented our unique wants, tight budget, and constraints (we reside several states away from Durham, NC). The distance did not impede Monica's attentive performance or diminish the quality of services she provided. She scheduled conference calls with us at least once a month to keep us abreast of developments. Any updates and vendor confirmations were promptly affirmed in emails to everyone involved. She negotiated deals with preferred vendors and always provided multiple vendor options for our review. She utilized several online tools that permitted us to coordinate logistics, centralize information, and collaborate on tasks from our respective locations.

On the big weekend, she provided everyone in the wedding party, reception/ceremony participants, and close family members detailed itineraries for the entire weekend's festivities. Monica L.I.T.E.R.A.L.L.Y. removed any source of stress and decision-making from our consideration. I cannot emphasize the positive impact this had on our experiences and memories. Most importantly, she and her staff at Nouveau Events facilitated a ceremony and reception that each of our ethnically, socioeconomically, and geographically diverse guests thoroughly enjoyed. No one complained about the wedding. Everyone complemented us on the celebration's execution. A sizable group of guests – many of whom didn’t know each other beforehand - wanted a “reunion” to celebrate again in a year. That is the kind of experience Monica and her staff at Nouveau Events facilitated for us last month. They are invaluable.

We highly recommend Nouveau Event’s wedding planning services to anyone looking to wed in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC area. You will not be disappointed.

Young, talented, sharp and professional. Just a few words that come to mind when describing Monica. From the very beginning to the very end Monica spent countless hours not only serving as my planner, but also as my therapist when I was having a moment (as a bride, you will have many moments). When I first met with Monica, I described my vision of a perfect wedding and what I was looking for in a wedding planner and she took it from there. Monica is passionate when it comes to planning and designing weddings, which is most certainly something that you will want to consider in your search for a wedding planner. She responds to emails and or text messages within minutes, sometimes seconds; her follow up with vendors regarding inquires is prompt, she shows up for appointments early, always prepared and always kept our vision and budget in mind, which is extremely important. Our Wedding Day was nothing short of amazing. Everything flowed smoothly. Our wedding guests still rave about how beautiful everything turned out and and how much they enjoyed themselves. One of the most important moments to me on this day was having my 3 year old daughter as my "Mini Bride / Flower Girl". I just knew that she was not going to walk down that aisle, but long and behold, Monica had a little talk with her and she walked!!!! She walked, smiled and placed the flower petals down the aisle ever so graciously! Melted my heart!!! Our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more!! Hiring Monica was worth every cent. Honestly, there really isn't a price you can put on how phenomenal her talents are. Anyone who can plan a flawless wedding for over 175 guests, with tact, poise and professionalism, while pregnant is a Rockstar! #SheLovesWhatSheDoes More...

Monica is THE BEST! I hired Monica for Event Design/Planning and Month of Coordination and I cannot imagine the wedding planning process or actual wedding day without her. She is on top of everything, literally everything. She has a great eye for design and helped us make our wedding unique and personal to us. I did not have to worry about a thing when it came to the day of the wedding; Monica and her team took care of everything. What was most impressive was Monica's professionalism and how she was able to handle our "hype" bridal party. She was quickly able to keep them in order, on tasks, and on time which Mike and I appreciated! If you are considering or on the fence about getting a wedding planner - get one, but if you want a great wedding planner - get Monica with Nouveau Events! More...

She kept everyone on track and made sure we stuck to our timeline so we got to do everything we wanted to do. She also worked directly with all of our vendors and made sure everyone was on the same page.

I so glad I went with my gut. Monica and her team were exceptional. I had planned my whole wedding and just needed the day of wedding coordination services. I wish I had her from the beginning, because she is that great. They were efficient, professional, and personable. They handled every glitch what class and style, even my family :). I truly appreciate Monica and her team as they stood by me every step of the way. There are no star ratings that can go high enough to match the quality of their service.

I can only say great things about Monica and Tiffany. We went to them with a 3 month timeline and I don't think our event would have been any better if we had planned for a year! Everything was great, on point; the wedding of our dreams. She always stayed conscience of our spending plan but keeping us focused on what was important. For a new and up and coming event planning service, they already rival the best.

I highly recommend them.

We hired Nouveau Events for partial planning and day-of coordination. Monica and her team were great, both with the styling of the venue and with coordination! Any concern that came up, they were on it--we had a few issues with some of our vendors and Monica handled everything. I felt a lot better in the months and days leading up to our wedding knowing that we had her in our corner! It also took a lot of stress off of our families, allowing them to sit back and enjoy the weekend. I'm so happy we chose Monica and Nouveau Events--you won't be disappointed! More...

From the first time I walked into Monica's office, I knew from then she would be my wedding planner. I reeeaaally liked the décor of her office. Additionally, because I am a very indecisive person I needed someone who was able to help me make clear and concise decisions about my wedding. She was able to complete all of my thoughts and wasn't afraid to redirect my thoughts if they were veering into the wrong direction in just the first meeting. It was a no brainer that she was THE ONE. My husband and I chose the "month of" package but Monica responded to all of my emails and calls promptly in the months leading up to the wedding. Everything that could have happened to me on my wedding day, happened. My hair appointment ran over, I had to purchase a new dress for my maid of honor, I almost ran out of gas on the way to the venue,........But none of the guest knew of anything. I was extremely late arriving to the venue. BUT GUESS WHAT? The wedding started on time. Monica had all of the vendors in place, the wedding party in place, decorations in place, chairs, you name it. She kept me calm with her calm demeanor in a chaotic situation. If I had to do it all over again I would choose Nouveau Events to coordinate my wedding. More...

I hired a wedding planner to help make sure that all the details were taken into account and make the planning process as stress free as possible. Monica went above and beyond!! All her recommendations on wedding vendors were spot on. Our styles were similar, so I trusted her style choices for my wedding. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and I was able to enjoy my wedding day. I would recommend all brides to get wedding planner- especially Nouveau Events. It'll be the best money spent on your wedding! More...

It was a pleasure working with Monica at Nouveau Events. I hired her as my Day of Coordinator and she really helped the Wedding Day run smoothly. Our wedding reception was in a park so we had to create the space for the entire event... there were a lot of moving parts since we had table/chair/dancefloor/tent rentals in addition to the typical wedding vendors. I didn't want any of my family members to be dealing with logistics on the wedding day so we really needed someone who could be in charge of directing vendors and making sure that everything was done correctly. Monica lifted these responsibilities off of myself and my family and really took charge so we could enjoy the day. She worked with us starting 1 month before the wedding day to create a timeline and confirm with all of the vendors. On the wedding day, Monica and her assistant were at the park by noon guiding all vendors and finalizing decorations and they did not go home until the reception was over and everything was broken down and packed up. She assisted the wedding party throughout the day to make sure we had everything we needed. She stepped in when I needed her and made sure all of the important events happened according to our timeline. Without Monica, I would have been super stressed. Believe it or not, when you get married, the bride is the first person everyone goes to when they need something. Hire Monica and defer these people to her. She will keep everyone happy. You do not want to be wasting your time with logistics when all of your loved ones are there to spend time with you. You will not regret it! More...

We chose the day of coordination package as that fit the best into our wedding budget. Monica was just incredible and made the whole process soooooooooo much better. She stayed in contact with our vendors, met with us and vendors to guarantee what was happening and when we were having issue after issue with our venue Monica and her team took care of things. While Monica helped us leading up to our wedding day, we actually worked with Callie and Victoria on the day of. Both coordinators were so professional and it was clear they knew what they were doing. They took care of absolutely everything and made the day go perfect! I can honestly say that I never planned on hiring a day of coordinator but in hindsight, hiring Nouveau Events was one of the best wedding planning decisions that I could have ever made. More...

Other than the impending nuptials, I wasn't stressed about anything. I just hung out all day with my bridesmaids. The ceremony went great! Then we ate, toasted and danced the night away. More...

I realized I needed a wedding planner when I was shoulder deep in emails, phone calls, and Pinterest boards. I had done the legwork of booking my vendors, but had no idea how to integrate them into a cohesive plan for my wedding day. Enter Monica and Nouveau Events. Monica exudes professionalism and confidence, backed up by her experience in the business. After meeting with her once, I knew we were in great hands.
In the month leading up to our wedding, Kira ran point on many aspects of our wedding, including contacting and confirming with vendors and our venue. They both updated me with questions from my vendors, but made sure that I could focus on more meaningful last minute details, instead of fielding phone calls and emails.
Monica and Kira made sure our rehearsal was productive, which is impressive because it was definitely like herding cats with our families. On the day of the wedding, I did absolutely nothing but enjoy my day while Monica, Kira, and the rest of the staff at Nouveau Events took care of everything. My wedding required a flip in the main ceremony/reception space, for which there were a total of 5 staff members present at the venue to help. I couldn't believe how quickly they flipped the space and how beautiful it looked!
During the night, Kira made sure our reception went as planned, with the speeches, first dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc. All the while, they were packing up our belongings discretely and cleaning up as the night continued. By the time we were ready for our sparkler exit, I asked what we needed to in terms of cleaning up our stuff and decorations and they had already gotten all of our personal belongings out of the venue. All we had to do was enjoy our exit and hop in the getaway vehicle. I was so amazed!
Thanks to Nouveau Events, our wedding was well-planned, well-executed, and an absolute dream. I cannot thank them or recommend their services enough. Thank you!!!

I HIGHLY recommend Nouveau Events! Monica is just all around fabulous! Me and my husband went with the day of coordination package (technically the month-of) and when I say I didn't have to lift a finger on our wedding day, I did not have to do a thing! Monica ensures that your wedding day, is YOUR day and she's extremely quick on her toes with anything that came her way. She's extremely helpful during your initial consultation (and so on) and she was there for any question/concern that I had. She's worth every penny and I wish I could have been able to hire her for full planning services. I would recommend day-of-coordination if you're extremely organized and can handle the majority of the wedding planning on your own. When it's a month before your wedding, Monica takes the reigns and execute your needs with extreme professionalism and class. We couldn't believe how smooth our wedding day went and if there were any serious hiccups involved, we didn't know about it lol. Our wedding party and families were really impressed with Monica and her team and we received so many compliments how well everything was put together. Even with our simple decor for the ceremony and reception, Monica made it look like a million bucks! Monica was worth EVERY penny and we'll recommend her to anyone that's planning a wedding. It doesn't matter how big or small your wedding is, an awesome wedding coordinator like Monica is the way to go! More...

Monica is amazing. Just go ahead and book her, it will be the best decision you make about your wedding. Just trust me. She did stuff you wouldn't even imagine, for example: We got home the day after the wedding an realized that we left all the sparklers we ordered at home! But at the wedding we had a sparkler exit as planned?! How is this possible you ask? Monica just made it happen, she was magical! More...

Trust me - hire Monica!

Monica had the unfortunate pleasure of coordinating our Pinehurst wedding in the middle of Hurricane Matthew :) She literally saved the day. Every emergency you could think of happened and she was totally calm and in control the entire time. She checked in with all of my vendors all day long to see if they were still coming, what their ETA was, if any changes needed to be made, and communicated all of the information back out to everyone else. There were a few hours in the day where the band had cancelled and we didn’t have a back-up band or DJ yet, and she somehow managed to get multiple DJ/band options there last minute, in the middle of a hurricane, to do our reception. I would not believe that was possible if I had not seen it with my own eyes!

Monica went above and beyond the entire planning process. Excellent responsive communication, great planning materials, a true eye of event design, great local vendor connections - she’s the whole package. She is definitely the person you want in charge for last minute emergencies!

Thank you so much Monica for saving our wedding!

Monica and her team are world class! From the very first phone call I had with Monica, she was up and ready to go! The first time I met Monica, I was running late, and my phone died. I was over an hour late with no way of contacting her and balling. However, Monica greeted me with a huge hug and still met with me that evening, and was able to take on my wedding! I utilized the Day of Coordination package, and my wedding could not have turned out had it not been for this team. Monica is very prompt at replying to emails, and willing to find the answer to any question. Two of her associates were on site for my wedding and they worked SO hard to pull my vision together and adapted to some severe rain (#hurricanematthew in Raleigh). In spite of the weather, Nouveau Events brought all my dreams to life, and I was thrilled with the reception space. The team handled the change of plans very well, and were so polite when they informed of any adjustments we had to make. If you contemplating a coordinator, do it now. Call Monica. Set up a meeting, and you will not be disappointed. The day of coordination service really allowed me to sit back and relax on the big day, because i knew my vision was in good hands. More...

I couldn't have planned my wedding without her! She took my Pinterest board and turned into an amazing event. She was super responsive and helped me decide on things (which I think is REALLY important when as a bride you have a ton of decisions to make). One example, I was late to my linens appointment and she went ahead and pulled some options and I loved all of them. She is very experienced (she made sure I considered all the things I would never think about). She made sure I stayed on top of deadlines. She definitely got my style and she handled our big African (and pushy) family like a pro! She helped make my day the BEST DAY EVER! More...

We were so happy to have Monica plan our wedding! She was so quick to understand my "wedding style" that I almost felt she knew it better than me! Her patience and professionalism were exactly what we needed. With the number of guests and how involved our ceremony was, I was shocked at how smoothly our day went. No hiccups or hurdles, and Monica was always nearby just to make sure my husband and I were enjoying our special day. Monica, thank you so much!!

She and her staff were great. We did day of planning so the month before the wedding we had an extensive meeting about everything. She took all we had done and put it together perfectly. she talked to all the vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. The day of she was great and had everything together and made sure things ran smoothly. More...

As the mother of the groom, I was hesitant to ask a lot of questions. Monica was open and asked me directly if I had questions. She was so friendly and helpful. One of questions I asked was, "Of all the weddings you have done, what is a piece of advice you would give me to help things go smoothly?" Her answer, "Make sure everyone is fed well." I took her advice to heart. As much of the bridal interactions were at our house, I kept infused water available, fresh fruit and lots of fresh veggies. The days were better, I think, based on her advice and me being willing to take her advice to heart.
When you meet with her, I suggest listening and taking good notes...this vendor knows her stuff and her tips are important to a successful and less stressful event for all.

Please do not consider having a wedding without a wedding planner, and I strongly suggest Monica Noa! She worked with us from the very beginning of the planning process and the event was flawless. The most important thing was I was able to enjoy my daughter's wedding. Her team ensured that the day went off without a hitch (if there was a hitch, I never knew about it!). She is thorough, efficient, personable and very professional in all her dealings with the families and the myriad of people that she had to work with. Really enjoyed working with her and would strongly recommend her services. More...

Monica Noa and Nouveau Events provided excellent wedding planning services. We hired Monica for the full planning service package. She was worth every penny. From the moment we hired her, she crafted a planning process that complimented our unique wants, tight budget, and constraints (we reside several states away from Durham, NC). The distance did not impede Monica's attentive performance or diminish the quality of services she provided. She scheduled conference calls with us at least once a month to keep us abreast of developments. Any updates and vendor confirmations were promptly affirmed in emails to everyone involved. She negotiated deals with preferred vendors and always provided multiple vendor options for our review. She utilized several online tools that permitted us to coordinate logistics, centralize information, and collaborate on tasks from our respective locations.

On the big weekend, she provided everyone in the wedding party, reception/ceremony participants, and close family members detailed itineraries for the entire weekend's festivities. Monica L.I.T.E.R.A.L.L.Y. removed any source of stress and decision-making from our consideration. I cannot emphasize the positive impact this had on our experiences and memories. Most importantly, she and her staff at Nouveau Events facilitated a ceremony and reception that each of our ethnically, socioeconomically, and geographically diverse guests thoroughly enjoyed. No one complained about the wedding. Everyone complemented us on the celebration's execution. A sizable group of guests – many of whom didn’t know each other beforehand - wanted a “reunion” to celebrate again in a year. That is the kind of experience Monica and her staff at Nouveau Events facilitated for us last month. They are invaluable.

We highly recommend Nouveau Event’s wedding planning services to anyone looking to wed in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC area. You will not be disappointed.

Monica, from Nouveau Events, was heaven sent. My photographer Keith Cephus referred her to me & I saw her beautiful work at a Bridal Expo as well. Not only is Monica, an amazing person to work with she is very organized, idea-driven, shows initiative and I know that there is NO way our wedding would have been successful without her.

I was a very hands on bride who was planning a wedding in the US. When my husband was living & working in London and we had guests from Nigeria/UK/Canada & US all attending our wedding in droves so I was busy but Monica stayed on top of everything. I never had to worry about if the details were being taken care of because she was always there.

Someone came up to me after my wedding and started crying telling me how beautiful everything was and how they are glad they lived to witness the joining of two cultures on our beautiful wedding day that touched my heart.

The only regret that I made is that we hired Monica as a Designer (Only) instead of our Designer AND Planner. If you are looking for someone who is TRULY a DESIGNER at heart and an ORGANIZED WEDDING PLANNER. Book NOUVEAU Events. It will be the best decision you've ever made.

Just stop reading this right now and go hire Monica!!!! I can't say enough good things about her, hiring her for day-of coordinating was the best wedding decision we made. If you're on the fence, just stop reading this and go hire her immediately. She made our special day run smoothly the entire day from arriving early to the venue, checking in with vendors, delivering the bouquets and buttonieres, checking on the guys and making sure they're running on time, to our timeline, to bringing my flats to change into, to EVERY small possible detail. She was on top of everything, I can't even say enough...she gave me peace of mind not only ON my wedding day, but on the week before when things start to get really crazy. My husband didn't think we needed a wedding planner at first (typical men) but at the end of our wedding day, my husband looked at me and said "wow thank God for Monica today." Thank you Monica, having you was priceless!!! More...

We were married on October 3rd, 2015 and it will be a day we'll never forget thanks to Monica! After being a bridesmaid in a previous wedding Monica planned, she was my first choice for a wedding coordinator, which was the best decision we made! My husband and I met Monica about 13 months before the wedding and from the very beginning she was very invested in what we wanted our day to be like. She even suggested vendors that she knew and trusted and was right about each one! The weekend of our wedding, we were swamped with rain because of Hurricane Joaquin. With so many people traveling from out of town leading up to the day, I was becoming a nervous wreck! In the midst of checking in on vendors and the wedding planner, Monica made time to check on me on multiple occasions. She was so calm and prepared that all of my nervousness was put as ease. The storm didn't impact us at all and my wedding went on as planned. Needless to say, it was absolutely beautiful. All of the details were perfect! Our family and friends were so happy with everything and even they say we made a great investment by working with Monica. Our wedding was fantastic and we owe it all to Nouveau Events. Thank you so much Monica. You are amazing! More...

OMG! Booking Monica was the first wedding decision I made AND the best! There are simply not enough words to describe how AMAZING Monica and her team are! My husband and I booked Monica for full-service planning and have zero regrets! Her recommendations and insight on vendor selection was awesome considering I had no wedding vendor knowledge and would get so overwhelmed just thinking about it! Her wedding day-of skills completely blew me away…not to mention wowing my Dad, who was skeptical about the whole wedding planner idea from the beginning! I’m pretty sure he was still raving about her a week later! Long story short, if you are looking to book a wedding planner and want ensure things are flawless and stress-free on your wedding day then Monica is your girl! More...

The first time I experienced the absolutely wonderful creativity of Nouveau Events, was at a Vow Renewal Ceremony in which I was hired to sing. It was so elegant, unique, and beautiful! Fast forwarding to 2015, It was my time to plan my wedding! My wedding planner had just quit and we were left to fin for ourselves. I remembered the event I had attended the year before and decided to reach out to the Bride for contact information. She sent me the link to Monica's website and instantly I knew Nouveau Events was the business for us! Her website alone told me that she was professional, creative, and serious about wedding planning! I sent her and email, telling her the whooole story about my wedding planner quitting and how we were about 6 months away from our big day, with so many loose ends that needed to be mended. Monica responded the very next day to schedule our consultation! Our first meeting felt like talking to an old friend, many laughs, very safe and open environment. I brought decor items that we had purchased with our old planner, and as horrible as they were, Monica showed so much compassion towards us and kindly let us know that we would need to go in another direction (lol). Up until our consultation, I kept what I called my "Wedding Planner Bible", I just found it under my bed after organizing yesterday, lol! I totally trusted Monica and her opinions, ideas, and expertise! Monica flipped our wedding upside down and made it more that we could imagine! We are so grateful and pray that God blesses her and Jesse abundantly above all they could ask or think! More...

If peace of mind on your wedding day is important to you and you want to KNOW that everything is going to go "right" and as planned....you need a wedding coordinator. And if you're going to get a wedding coordinator, get Nouveau Events! I hired them for day of services about 3 months out from my wedding on a "freak out whim" because I had been planning to do it all myself, but then I talked to former brides and all of them gave me the same advice, "get a day of coordinator."

So I'll give you the same advice, "get a day of coordinator!!" (Or a full planner if you need that, I hear Monica does that as well.) But seriously, this is how my wedding day went: slept in late, woke up, ate breakfast with all my bridesmaids/friends, watched my favorite tv show (Friends), wondered how much longer I had to sit around my hotel room, got pampered with my hair and make up artist, ate Jimmy John's, watched some more tv, drank a beer with my friends, got in the limo and rode around for awhile til it dropped us at the church where we got dressed and I only started feeling nervous for the last 5 minutes before the ceremony started. I didn't answer one phone call from a guest or a vendor or ANYONE needing something from me. I didn't worry whether the linens had been dropped off or if the flowers were set up. And it was all thanks to Monica and her team! I am a teacher - read perfectionist, over-doer, naturally type A, stressed out personality. But from the second I hired her I felt way more at ease with my wedding day and it totally paid off. Out of everything I spent on my wedding, she was the best money spent by far. All my other vendors (officiant, florist, etc.) complimented me on how efficient she was. From the rehearsal the night before to leaving the wedding after all the festivities, she got things done and she got them done perfectly.

I could go on and on, but you get the point. Your wedding is YOUR day - you enjoy it and let Monica worry about the rest :)

We used Nouveau Events for their "Day of" coordinating services (which actually means "Month of"). Monica was a pleasure to work with!! Even before the month of our wedding, I was able to email her for suggestions and advice. She responded to me within a day and always provided many options and resources. During the month of our wedding, I was asked to fill out a very detailed packet about my vendors, ceremony, and reception. We then met at my venue to go over the packet, the wedding timeline, and to go through the venue to finalize our final vision and tie up loose ends! Monica is extremely detail oriented and organized! This gave me peace of mind, since I am a perfectionist myself. I felt completely comfortable leaving my wedding in her hands!
The rehearsal went quickly and smoothly! Some of my bridal party even commented that it was the easiest rehearsal they had ever been a part of, since Monica was so organized! Our wedding day was the same way! Monica, and her lovely assistant, Victoria, made the day go by so smoothly! If anything went wrong, my husband and I had no idea because they took care of it all! I had also done quite a few DIY projects that they happily set up for me the morning of the wedding (candy table, table numbers, memory table, etc.) Everything looked beautiful! My husband, my family, and I were all so pleased with Nouveau Events! I would definitely recommend using them!!

I met Monica at a bridal show about a year before my wedding. We decided to go with day of coordination and we couldn't be happier with our choice! A couple months before my wedding I moved 6 hours away from where it was taking place. Lets talk about stress! But when meeting with Monica the month of, I knew I had nothing to worry about. She confirmed with all my vendors, had a detailed timeline and just had everything down to the last detail covered! Monica was always quick to answer emails and any questions that I had. She worked with my officiant for our rehearsal and it was the smoothest rehearsal that I have ever been too. The day of the wedding couldn't have gone any better! Monica and her team did a great job at making every last detail perfect and keeping everyone on schedule. She was even there to help find my veil the morning of the wedding when we were calling her from the hair salon. I had compliments from my bridal party and guests that my wedding planner was on top of everything! I couldn't have had a more perfect day and I would definitely recommend Monica and her team!!

Hiring Nouveau Events as my full wedding planner was the absolute best decision that I made during my wedding planning process. At first, I was unsure that I would need a full wedding planner but, after meeting Monica, I wanted to work with her just because of how much I liked her as a person! She is extremely professional, knowledgable, and kind. I was shocked at how much went into planing a wedding that I did not realize; I could not even begin to imagine how I would have done any this without her help. She listened to my thoughts and ideas and made them into reality. My wedding was every single thing that I hoped it would be and so much more. Never during this process did I get frustrated or overwhelmed. Monica made sure I knew what to do during each phase of the planning process. She provided me with timelines, reminders and guidance that helped me stay on track and focused.

I just feel like I could not say enough about how much I loved working with Monica. I am so happy that I found her and I would recommend her to anyone. She is one of my favorite people in the whole world and if you get the chance to work with you, I would be shocked if you didn't agree.

As a very 'type A' person who was planning on working two jobs and then starting graduate school while planning a wedding, I KNEW I needed a full service wedding planner to keep me sane from Day 1. My groom was also deployed for 90% of the engagement, which made a wedding planner even more critical. I don't even remember how I found Monica, but I'm so happy I did. As my full service planner Monica helped me select vendors that fit my vision for my wedding day, kept the planning moving smoothly, and did her best to have everything done ahead of schedule so that I wouldn't be stressed out at the last minute. If I'm being honest, at the beginning, I probably didn't let Monica do as much for me as she could have, but that's just me wanting to do everything myself. She was patient, straightforward, and honest with me when it came to everything. Every one of the vendors she recommended to me were wonderful to work with. In the end, my wedding exceeded my expectations (which is HARD to do!) and I cried when I had my reception room reveal; It was my vision brought to life, right down to the little details I'd obsessed over. I'm the kind of bride that has been dreaming of her wedding day since she was a little girl, and I have to say my wedding day was the fairytale I had always dreamt it would be. I know that sounds cliche, but it was. Without Monica it would not have been possible, and I literally would have died of stress. I have and will continue to enthusiastically recommend Monica and her team to other brides! More...

That peace of mind was so valuable to me!! Monica is a good balance of staying out of the way but also making sure things happen when they need to and no one impedes that process. She also worked well with our other vendors! We would use her again in a heartbeat. More...

Nouveau Events was a life saver in our wedding planning process. We went through last minute venue changes with four months to go. After finding our new venue and getting a friends recommendation for a planner, we found Monica and her team at Nouveau Events to help us with month of coordination. Once I handed everything over to Nouveau Events a couple of weeks before the wedding, a lot of my stress was relieved! It was great. They handled our ceremony rehearsal with ease on Friday night. On Saturday, to my knowledge as the bride, everything went quite smoothly. The reception venue was decorated exactly to our vision and more. It was beautiful! The team kept our wedding timeline spot on! We received so many compliments for how wonderful the night was and that was thanks to Nouveau Events executing our vision perfectly! It was a wonderful experience working with Monica, Emily and Callie. I would suggest this wedding planning company to any bride who asks me for a recommendation.

I highly recommend Monica and Nouveau Events for wedding planning services! My day would not have turned out as amazing as it did, without her expertise. Planning a wedding is a very difficult task, unlike any other event you will ever plan in your life. What made the planning process even more difficult, is the fact that I was a remote bride, four hours away from Raleigh. Monica took the lead in completing a great deal of tasks which made my life stress free, as I had complete confidence that Monica would take care of everything. Her creative ideas were critical to the success of our special day. She understood my vision and made our day exactly what I pictured in my dreams. The day was absolutely unbelievable and in large part I have to thank Monica! Monica is creative, hardworking, dedicated, and personable. I unequivocally recommend Monica and Nouveau events for wedding planning services! More...

Monica, I wanted to express to you how wonderful it was to have you as wedding planners for the last month before the wedding!! When we first talked I was happy to know that someone else was in charge starting the last 30 days before the wedding of my daughter Emma. BUT when your team was there on the wedding day THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY WONDERFULL!!! I was able to sit back and enjoy all the wedding moments of my daughter instead of worrying about what was next and what was going on!! I sat back and enjoyed the entire wedding service and reception as if I was a guest!!! I had absolutely no worries!! At one point I thought" this was the best money I could have spent!!"
The venue had some issues but your team handled those issues behind the scenes, we had a potential issue with some guests but again...your team handled those issues behind the scenes and no one even knew about the issues. The only reason I knew was b/c I asked your team at the end of the night!! I just can not say enough about you and your team!!! I could try but it may sound like I am rambling!!! So I will close with another GREAT BIG HUGE THANK YOU!!!!
I would highly use/recommend your team again!!!! Please use me as a reference as 1 professional to another-You were GREAT!

We met Monica ( proprietor of Nouveau Events) at a bridal show in Raliegh and she seemed to be the most professional and creative one there. Later on we looked at her website and we were sold. To say that she exceeded our expectations is a gross understatement. From the moment we signed the contract, she was an integral part of our wedding. She coached us on vendor choices, set up appointments (this was very important because we needed to be able to visit multiple vendors on our short visits in town), kept up with our timeline, advised us on decisions, handled the myriad details that one often forgets about when trying to coordinate an event like this, and executed our wedding day flawlessly. There was only one time when we did not take Monica's advice, and it is the only part of our wedding that we think could have been improved. Our vision came to fruition EXACTLY as we had imagined it would, and then some. We could not have done it without Monica and her team. More...

From my initial conversation with Monica (owner of Nouveau Events), I knew she'd be a gem to work with. She was extremely professional, timely, and knowledgeable. Although she's recently starting Nouveau Events, she comes with a wealth of prior wedding planning experience and it shows. I never had to remind her of any tasks or deadlines as she was always on top of things. FYI, we used her for day-of coordination services but she also offers full wedding planning services and I know she's excellent at both! Prior to the wedding, Monica confirmed all of our vendors which was a great relief to a soon-to-be bride. Having her certainly made the lead up to the big day much less stressful. On the day of the wedding, Monica and her team arrived and took care of any set-up needs, vendor arrivals, and all of the actual wedding activities. They made sure everything went super smoothly and we never had to worry about a thing. Along the way, anytime I emailed or called Monica, she would quickly respond and address any question I had. Not to mention, she even follows up with you after your big day to check-in and see if you need anything. Nouveau is a top service vendor who I highly recommend. I'm sure their calendar will be booking up so reserve them as soon as you can! More...

Words cannot express how wonderful of a job Monica with Nouveau Events did. I hired her for full-time wedding planning service and she exceeded my expectations on every level I could possibly imagine. Monica planned my dream wedding in six months. She was there from start to finish working in a very organized and professional manner not only with my husband and I but also, keeping the vendors on time to meet deadlines. She is a wonderful person to work with and you can always count on her to be at your desire appointments. If I had to do it all over again Monica would be my top choice. More...

We used Nouveau Events for Day of Coordination and I totally wished I had used Monica for more! Our wedding was planned within a very short time span and she took our many pieces and turned it into a cohesive event! We battled several rain showers on our wedding day and Monica kept us calm and worked it our so that we still had our dream ceremony in the gardens. Our ceremony was beautiful and the Nouveau Events staff even made our beautiful bouquets. Our reception was managed very well and all of the vendors did an amazing job under Monica's guidance. I 100% recommend Nouveau Events for their planning services and they are well worth the investment! More...

My wedding would have been a disaster without Monica! It rained all day, our outdoor ceremony had to be postponed, and the cake even fell from the humidity. I didn't have to worry though. Other than the rain, I didn't even know about the other disasters until after the wedding, Monica took care of them smoothly and effectively. I was so happy that she was there to help! She is very professional and quick to respond to all your needs. More...

Words can not explain the level of service that I received from Nouveau Events! The one word that does come to mind is AWESOME! Monica went OVER and BEYOND to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams. In the beginning I thought planning our wedding would be an easy task but boy was I wrong. We were definitely blessed in so many ways when we found Monica. She was soooo patient with my indecisiveness. She kept me on track with everything and helped us to stay within our budget. She came up with so many ideas for the ceremony and reception and we used every one of them! Our wedding is still a topic of conversation between our family and friends. And they all complimented Monica and her professionalism. I could keep going but I don't want to take up too much space on the page :-). But I will say that whomever has the opportunity to hire Nouveau Events won't be disappointed! More...

Monica was my day of coordinator on a not so easy day to work with. We got married hours after a tropical storm came through our town! What a mess! Monica and her associates went above and beyond to make sure our day ran smoothly. Setup was no easy task when all had to be done hours before the ceremony. I am grateful for all she did and would highly recommend Nouveau! Having Monica there was exactly what I needed to keep calm and feel certain the day would carry through as planned! Thank you!

We hired Monica for day-of coordination, and she was BY FAR the best thing we invested in!!!! i cannot explain how much stress she took off not only my shoulders, but my bridesmaids, my family, and all of the guests! I actually didnt do all that I was supposed to do for the big day...i didnt label things, i didnt sort things out...i was not setting her up well at all, especially since she was going to have only 2.5 hours to decorate the entire space! and with lack of time and organization on my part, she did INCREDIBLE!!! I seriously cannot stress to yall how much you would appreciate her for your big day! I mean, when my guests come up to me after the wedding and talk about how amazing our coordinator was, you can bet its not just luck. She was so great and we were beyond thankful for all the work her and her husband did for us! More...

Monica did an amazing job and on a great budget. Even though she was hired for "day of" she was in contact with me months in advance of my wedding and was always available for advice and suggestions. I would and have recommended her to other brides, she was prompt and friendly and made my day a little less crazy. Also, she was stern with my vendors to make sure I got what I wanted for my big day. Awesome planner, if I could do it again I would have hired her sooner! More...

Monica with Nouveau Weddings and Events was amazing! She went above and beyond my expectations and helped me bring my vision for my wedding to life. Leading up to the wedding day, Monica was with me step by step, helping with decision-making, to guest management, to dealing with vendors. If there were any issues on my wedding day, I didn't know about them. Monica took care of everything and I was able to relax and just enjoy the day. I could not have asked for anything more. I recommend them wholeheartedly! More...

Nouveau Events led by Monica were absolutely amazing throughout the planning process and especially the day of my wedding. Monica and her team were the true professionals. She made everything so beautiful and elegant, just the way I wanted it. My guest are still talking about how gorgeous everything was and how organized and detailed everything was as well. It was truly a pleasure to work with Monica and her team and I would recommend her to anyone who wants professional, beautiful services at reasonable prices. I knew I was in good hands on my wedding day and I felt no stress at all due to Monica and her Nouveau Events team! Thanks again for everything!! More...
