We’ve been featured over on Martha Stewart Weddings talking about the most effective ways to plan a mini-moon even if you’re really limited on time!
A snippet: “If you’re getting married at a luxury resort, consider extending your stay there for a few days. Most of your guests will probably head out the day after the wedding, which means you’ll have the resort to yourself. You may also be able to take advantage of a lowered room rate offered to your guests and get a few nights of honeymoon bliss for a reduced rate.”
We’ve been featured over on brides.com talking about ways you are annoying your bridesmaids, without even knowing it..
A snippet: “2. You’re blowing up their phones with wedding-related messages.
Dress news? You text your ‘maids. Caterer drama? You send ’em an email. “You may be a slave to your iPhone and your email, but that doesn’t mean everyone else wants to read 10 emails a day,” says Amy Nichols, owner of Amy Nichols Special events and cofounder of the Poppy Group. Send succinct, necessary messages only.”

Here at Amy Nichols Special Events, we love bouquets, especially if they use unique flowers or interesting color combinations. As such, we have a series featuring our favorite bouquets on Mondays. This arrangement by Natalie Bowen Designs was crafted for a wedding we planned in St. Helena. We love the neutral palette with slight pops of color and the way the bright blooms draw your eye throughout the bouquet.

This arrangement by Wildheart Florals was crafted for a wedding we planned at Sugar Beach in Maui. We love the pink palette with slight pops of greenery for that beachy vibe. These florals stood out beautifully against the bridesmaids’ blue dresses!

Christen is a registered nurse and Tim is the owner of a commercial fishing company. They met at Christen’s brother’s wedding (although Tim had been a family friend for years). They dated for two and a half years, when Tim surprised Christen with a proposal. “We got engaged on Christmas morning,” she says, “We had a house full of people who had stayed with us during the holidays. Everyone knew but me. Tim surprised me bedside, down on one knee at 6 a.m.—I was hardly awake!”
The pair was married at Sugar Beach Events in Maui on April 23, 2016 in front of their friends and family. We were so thrilled to have the opportunity to plan this wedding and it was even featured on Martha Stewart Weddings! To see additional photos from the celebration, visit the gallery.
