does this sound
WELL YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE. WE ARE YOUR PEOPLE.
As your wedding planner & your creative wizard, we will bring your pinterest dreams to a reality in more ways than one. Are you getting hyped? Because so are we!
This is where our fire & passion comes from. Designing your perfect day is a freaking blast! Going through Pinterest posts and looking at color palettes is all great & all but, pulling it all together? AHHH. That can be a toughy.
We're here to be your eyes, sourcing expert & style guru so that your day not only is aesthetically pleasing BUT a wedding experience you'll remember forever.
Once you fill out all the contact information, we make sure to get back to you asap (usually within a few hours) we know you are just as excited to hear from us as we are to chat with you.
We get personal. First thing we like to do is schedule a phone call. We feel that it's a lot more personal & you get to know us a lot better. In our call we'll go over all the details, your questions, & what your dream day looks like so we can start cooking up some ideas.
This is just the start of your experience with us. After our call you may find you have a question or concern that you didn't ask, know that we are just an email, phone call, or text away.
After we talk through everything and all your questions are answered, the next step is locking me down as your planner & best friend for your big day.
We require a signed contract and 30% non-refundable retainer put down- which can both be done easily online. Once this is done- we are all yours.
We know budgets can be tight, we also know we really want to make this work for you. We can be flexible with different payment plans on a case by case situation. Don't forget we also help you with budget balancing for your big day.
As soon as you are booked (literally the day of), I will send over a confirmation email and your couple’s questionnaire. Now I get to learn all about the two of you!
This questionnaire will be full of questions related to your elopement/micro- wedding and you as a couple. We recommend you both fill this out together.
We also know you may not know all your details just yet. But this is where we dive in & get to learn more about you both.
These answers will give me everything I need to recommend locations, lodging, things to do, vendors, and all other aspects in planning your big day.
Once we go over your answers to the questionnaire, I put together this massive adventure guide- filled with with all my suggestions and recommendations on where to have your big day, where to stay, things to do, ceremony spots, secret spots I've personally scouted, adventures and things to do there.
This guide works in two steps, after I go through the questionnaires, I will send over a 'location idea list' which will have all the locations I recommend based off of your answers. If you already have a location, (city/area) picked out we get to skip this part. I will then scout out that area to find the perfect spot within that location.
Once you decide on that spot, I'll send over pt.2 of the adventure guide- filled with specific recommendations on everything in that area!
Step 3 of the questionnaire is creating the perfect set up. Once a location is selected we now start the pretty. On your questionnaire you'll see we really dig into what you want your day to look like. Styles, colors, your floral design & all after we pick your location we make sure to have all those aspects in the location that you have asked for.
When picking a location we really take into account what all we can fit in the location. Want a coach? Want a beautifully designed arch? We got you covered. This is where the magic happens.
At this point we work with local suppliers to make your day everything you've dreamed of & even better than your Pinterest board.
After you make your final decisions based off of all my recommendations, I will then create a timeline to fit everything you want into your day. We will go over this timeline together- making sure it is EXACTLY what you want for your day.
It is our job to make sure we include everything you want. Want to hike to your ceremony spot? We account for all the water breaks. We also ask the question you may forget about...
Included in your timeline will also be any type of transportation needs. All & any reservations that may be needed. & also lots of time for photos. We also work with you & your selected photographer to create a photo timeline to make sure we cover everything.
THIS IS IT! All the final touches.
After we have a good idea of how the day is going to go, we will finalize travel logistics to make sure you are all set and answer any questions you may have left about your day.
This include any types of special accommodation needs, any permits we may need or any set up of camp sites.
We truly make sure you do not have to have a worry your whole day.
And that’s it! Once we go through this whole process the final step is having the most perfect wedding day of your dreams. You now get to sit back and relax crack a beer & say cheers!
We want you to look back on this experience & regret nothing.
When you decide to book with our team you have zero limitation and the creative skies are the limit.
Let's get you freaking married!
Just a small town central Pennsylvania girl who's unique talent is telling a story with the clouds in the sky.
I am a creative design expert, lover of symmetry, frequent flier, red wine sipping, true crime obsessed, glass half full, type of gal who cannot wait to create your dream day. Not only am I a cool wedding planner, but I am laid back, genuine & have some pretty good dad jokes.
She literally ran through the mountains during a 90 degree hot Vegas day to make sure everything went smooth during the ceremony. She also treated everyone like family, it felt like she was one of my bridemaids and my fur babies loved her (they were part of the ceremony). Since day one she made me feel that everything was under control (every bride needs this feeling!). Communication was so smooth, I could text her at any time of the day and she would quickly reply to my needs and concerns. Our wedding day was a dream! Nikki and her team went above and beyond to design and plan this day. No doubt that finding her was a blessing. I would not think twice to hire her, she will make your wedding dreams come true!!
If you are *thinking* about booking Niki just stop reading this right now and DO IT! She is so friendly and bubbly and had so many wonderful ideas that I immediately felt at ease and knew that I was making the right choice working with her. Somehow, from a few phone calls/e-mails and maybe 4 inspo pics I sent her, Niki managed to capture exactly what I had envisioned but a million times better. The colors, textures, charcuterie, cake--everything was perfect. I look back at the pictures and videos every day and still can't believe that it was OURS. It feels like a dream. Our wedding was more amazing than I ever could've dreamed up and I truly owe it all to her. Thank you so much again Niki, you're magical! So grateful to have met you.
From day one she was very communicative. Any question or change I wanted done she answered it or did it with no hesitation. She worked with me through out the whole process. She made sure everything was done exactly how I wanted it. Not only is Nicole great but all her vendors she recommends are just as amazing. Very sweet and kind people who want to make ur day very special for you. You can definitely tell she loves what she does and pours her heart and soul into every wedding she plans. I will always cherish my special day and it’s a big thanks to Nicole and her crew. I will forever recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner.
We did a last minute elopement to Vegas, and wanted something special in a small amount of time. We were referred to Nicole at Ember & Stone Events and we are so happy with the results. She led us through the whole process, helped us with things we didn't even think about, and made everything so easy on us. Not to mention creative and romantic. Thanks for your help!
My husband and I are so beyond thankful that we found Nicole with Ember and Stone Events! I don't think many brides can look back on their wedding day and say that everything was truly perfect and stress free. Nicole and her group stood out to us from the moment we reached out to her. She was responsive, detailed, and super excited from the moment we discussed our vision with her! Throughout our time planning the wedding, she was always available for any questions or changes as well.
The day of our wedding feels truly magical because of her hard work and attention to detail. Our venue was amazing, our desserts were delicious, and it felt as though everyone was involved on our special day! Outside of how amazing the work Nicole does, her and her team are also an amazing addition to have at our wedding! Everyone on her team was there to help when needed, guide me through everything throughout the day, and even talk about our dogs while I waited to walk down to aisle!
I cannot thank Nicole and her team enough for making our special day so effortless, beautiful, and fun! So much love for her and her team. Overall, her services were above and beyond what we could ask for. Her professionalism, kindness, and good jokes made our day that much more amazing! Thank you again!
She is so bubbly and kind and will do any and everything to make your day perfect! I worked with Niki as our wedding weekend planner to include our happy hour and reception but she did so much more to help me out. As a destination bride, it’s scary trusting someone in an unfamiliar place to take care of your day, but Niki calmed my fears and made sure everything went smoothly even through the curve balls of COVID and my bride anxiety 🙃 She is quick to communicate via Email or text, typically 24 hours or less. She has been my unofficial bridesmaid, my hype girl and friend! Even now, after the wedding she continues to help me and just go above and beyond. My only regret is I found her after we had booked our ceremony. If I could do it again, I would book Niki for everything! If you are thinking about working with her, DO IT!
Niki and her team made everything easy. First of all, after we set a date, we said we wanted to change it to three months earlier and Niki said, "Give me two days" and called all our vendors and made it happen. I knew she would take care of everything, and create a beautiful setup for our wedding, and not I nor anyone in my family had to worry. Everything was perfect and beautiful and I felt very well taken care of. Def recommend!!
Absolutely the best!!! We at first thought we didn’t need a wedding designer/planner because we just wanted a simple quick ceremony with a few people but let me tell you how happy I was finding this wedding designer, Nikki and Lexi were so helpful and honestly I was not stressing anymore they did it all . They made that day feel so special even for a small elopement with a few family. Highly recommend!! Thank you again to them and their team ❤️
After multiple wedding reschedules we were excited when the idea of elopement came into view, but where to even start? We live across the country in Philadelphia but Niki made us feel like we were locals and she was available anytime to walk us through things, talk small and large details, answer any question, everything. I can't believe that she has other clients because she really makes you feel like you are her only event and sole priority, we were amazed. We can't thank her enough for all of her hard work, dedication to us, and her attention to detail, even down to making sure the photographer got shots of things we forgot to mention but were important and thought of them for us! We're glad the wedding is over but sad to part ways with Niki, maybe in a few years a vow renewal will bring us back to her!! Thank you again!
Aside from her being a planner she is just an amazing person overall her personality is sooo great and she just gives the best energy and puts her all into everything. She will not stop until she knows you’re happy with everything! My husband and I decided to elope and came across her instagram! I’ve always loved the idea of eloping and when we cancelled our wedding it was even more of a reason! I honestly don’t know how people go without a planner it is a must, I am the most indecisive person and she helped me along the way! I reached out to her about a month before we wanted to elope and she made it possible! Everything was so PERFECT I cannot get over it Niki designed everything and put it all together! She was always available even we if it was super late at night! Love that she provided a mood board so I was able to have a vision of how everything would look! Niki would spend hours driving around Vegas looking for the perfect location for us like cmon who else would do that! We flew in from Texas and had never been to Vegas so we put all our trust in Niki and she did not disappoint! Honestly my day looked like something I would only see on Pinterest! I’m constantly having people reach out to me about my Elopement and commenting on how beautiful it was! If you’re thinking about eloping or just working with Niki for an event don’t think twice! I cannot wait to renew my vows and work with her again! Thank you sooooo much Niki so blessed to have had you be apart of our special day <3
Nikki was amazing to work with!! First, her personality is SO amazing. She's super energetic and it is so genuine. She created an easy process for us and really was there to calm my nerves on my special day. She was able to perfectly incorporate my father who passed into my day as well. BOOK HER.
Niki and her team were such a pleasure to work with! When I was searching for wedding planners there was something about Niki that I felt like I knew her already, and after our first interaction I was sold. Her and the team are very great about communicating in a timely fashion and you can tell that they truly care about every couple they take care of!!! Words cannot describe how wonderful our wedding day went, and we are so thankful to have had ember and stone events!!!! If we ever do a vow renewal I know who I’m calling :)
Nikki is so awesome! She always has great vibes and is so happy and welcoming, she truly made the process of planning a wedding and the wedding day stress free so we could enjoy our time together and with our guests! I highly recommend booking her for any wedding needs!
Nicole was extremely professional, always kind and very knowledgeable. I never had to wait to hear back from her and I can’t begin to explain how easy and stress free she made wedding planning. I highly recommend using her as your wedding planner!
Let me start by saying if you are looking for a stress free wedding ceremony, ELOPE! & hire Cactus Canyon Events! My husband and I are from Texas and planned our elopement with Nicole without ever meeting face to face or even scouting a location. My anxiety was very high due to planning wedding in a totally different state without knowing any preferred vendors and closing on a home. When I talked to Nicole, I knew I was in the hands of a professional who could make my vision come to life.
She did just that! The floral arrangements were everything, my Husband keeps bragging about the cake and how she kept me ( The Bride) very calm. Although I didn’t have a maid of honor or even a wedding party, I felt like I did. Getting dressed was so awesome. Nicole and her team made me feel like I had a wedding party. I definitely gained a new family friend! Book with her! You won’t be disappointed.
To be honest, I’m not your typical bride that had everything in detail with what I wanted, just a few. I Trusted Niki and let her do her thing with my set up because her vision and work is just beautiful. We showed up and they told us exactly what to do and everything was so well put together and beautiful. Absolutely amazing! Scenery, bouquet, cake, everything. We are at a lost of words with how happy our intimate ceremony turned out. Super glad I came across her social media and found her. #BestDayEver
Nicole is an amazing planner!! She made my dream wedding a reality! Her personality is so upbeat, fun and understanding! No matter what I wanted she made sure it was done without any hesitation! Her entire team was amazing! Professionalism is top tier….she has you feeling like you are her only client! I am still in shock how beautiful my wedding was. We came from Maryland and would have never known everything was planned from miles away! You get so much great service from her! From her welcome package to mood boards everything is top tier. She goes above and beyond! If I could do it all over again she would definitely be my top pick!! Thank you Nicole you exceeded my expectations! I feel like I have gained a friend for a lifetime!! You are beyond talented! Thank you so much! Definitely Book Her..You will not Regret It!!
We hired Nicole about a month before our wedding date. We had to cancel twice due to COVID. She was the BEST to work with. Just filled out some questionnaires and told her our vision and she brought it to life beautifully. Made the experience so stress-free for my partner and I. Best day of my life thanks to Nicole :)
Niki is an absolute pro, badass wedding planner that will help you achieve your dream. My fiancé and I could not wait any longer to officially tie the knot so we knew we had our work cut out for us with planning a covid wedding. I came across Niki's Instagram account and fell in LOVE with her style and elopements. It was my dream, boho-chic, Pinterest board heaven all there in one place. I reached out to her in mid-September and by the first week of November, we were blissfully enjoying our mini-moon. The planning process was a breeze, Niki was available to us basically 24/7 and she even took us to breakfast to answer our 5,000 questions and listen to our corny ideas. Niki made our dreams a reality with the perfect location, she seriously nailed it. I think I rejected roughly 12 locations and I'm sure a lesser planner would have given up on me but not Niki! She found the perfect location, florist, makeup & hair team, photographer, and even helped us decide on the groom's ensemble via FaceTime while she was on vacation. I was nervous about how my hair and makeup would hold up to an outdoor wedding and constant mask-wearing and removing so she set up a trail to set my mind at ease. I loved my hair and makeup so much so that I felt like a princess, I would never have known how to pick the right team for the job and the gals she chose for me felt like my friends by the time I was setting off to the ceremony. Our wedding day went perfectly, Niki and her team handled grumpy family members, forgotten (by me) unity sand, and even tore apart her lunch so we could have an impromptu communion. Niki is a ride or die, better than any maid of honor and we could not be happier with the result.
After planning and replanning and rescheduling our wedding just to have the venue cancel our contract for 2021, we decided it was time to plan something small and intimate. I reached out to Nicole to see if she’d be willing to help me put together a wedding on Christmas Day (we are both in healthcare so this was the only day we both were not working) and with less than 3 weeks notice. Her response- absolutely LETS DO THIS. She’s a miracle worker. She made sure every detail was perfect. She even found someone to livestream it in true 2020 fashion so our family could be there in spirit. Cannot speak highly enough of her.
What can I say about Nikki! She was wonderful communicate was top notch. I asked for things last minute and she and her team were able to make things happen. My whole wedding party was impressed with her work and how smoothly the wedding came out. Honestly I don’t live in Vegas so I was worried how things would work out with distance but it ran so smoothly. The only thing I wish is to relive the day. We had such a beautiful/ wonderful day. Thank you everything Nikki and team. ♥️
I didn’t give Niki much notice but she ended up running with it and giving me the second most perfect day of my life! Other than the birth of my only child! We eloped and instead of feeling alone, I legit felt like my best friend was there! Impressively shocked and genuinely floored with how amazing my wedding turned out!
Niki was amazing to work with her enthusiasm and excitement made you feel like she was your biggest cheerleader. Stress free everything was perfect! I’ll never forget that day!
She was very supportive with a level head on her shoulders throughout our wedding planning chaos. She made sure there was a solution to all of our challenges. She was very upbeat and positive which put us at ease. Whenever we felt stuck on a task, she guided us to the right path of our vision. She made communicating to other vendors stress free because she did all the leg work. She gave us more than everything we wanted to make our day even more special. Her ideas and inputs meshed very well with what we envisioned throughout the whole process and she was able to make all of those come to life down to every little detail. We appreciated how she considered how we wanted to feel with the planning, which were comfortable, relaxed, and stressed-free, and still made everything happen and more! She claimed to be the best unofficial maid of honor and hype person and she delivered 100%! All of our families and friends could not stop praising her and her work and she very well deserves it!!! We don’t look at her as a planner but a friend for life!
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!
(since it was suppose to be simple...didn't feel like we needed to), but I'm so glad we did! It really did take away the stress of trying to find vendors separately (especially trying to plan everything from out of state very last minute). Nicole customized our elopement so it was perfect for our needs, planned everything out with the officiant and photographer, created a detailed timeline, and approved/chose the most beautiful bouquet and boutonnière that was perfect for us. Plus, she was super friendly!
Niki made this day more perfect than we could have ever imagined. Always available and always creative with ideas! This day was as magical as it was because of her!
