WORDS OF KINDNESS


I have to say it. NORA Events were amazing. Michelle, the owner & lead planner was so concise, never making me feel overwhelmed through the planning process. The week before the event she made sure we knew what to expect and made it clear, it’s was our day & no one else’s. We’ve never met anyone so dedicated to her craft and such eye for detail. In fact, after my makeup person never showed up Michelle rolled up her sleeves and did my make up herself!! I love her!! I’ve already recommended Nora to two friends getting married next year.

We can’t thank Michelle enough for making our baby shower truly amazing. We are so grateful to have worked with her. She provided quality customer service, went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. We will recommend everyone to NORA Events!

Michelle planned my College Graduation party and her attention to every detail is unmatched. From the floral arrangements, to making sure all my guests signed special cards for me to remember, to making sure the flow of the evening was perfect, she made my night, a night to remember. Michelle comes highly recommended. She is professional, actively listens to you, is kind & friendly and her execution is flawless.

NORA Events planned my grandmother’s 90th birthday party and it was everything I hoped for and more. NORA provides top notch service, pays attention to detail, and plans every step of the way so you don’t have to worry about anything! I recommend NORA Events to anyone looking for a planner for any special occasion!

We were lucky to find Michelle last minute as our Month of Coordinator. Thank you for helping us ensure no detail was missed and coordinating our big. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Nora Events were fantastic. Planning a wedding is hard enough — especially when you’re having a destination wedding. My wife and I live in New York however we chose to have our big day in the San Juan Islands; a few hrs northwest of Seattle Wa. Michelle from Nora was amazing with giving us all the details necessary to make the best decisions and was always very clear and direct — never pushy. I’ve never met anyone as committed to a seamless and amazingly organized event. A few weeks after our wedding we received a wonderful letter from Michelle, thanking us for allowing Nora to be part of our special day and committed a percentage of our bill to a nonprofit organization. Hire them for your next event — I highly recommend them.

Working with NORA events was such a breeze for our engagement party. From beginning to end, Michelle was always a step ahead of me in all my planning. She’s extremely creative and her attention to detail is very impressive. I appreciated her professionalism and knowledge as she always asked the right questions I would have never guessed to ask had I done the event planning myself. Event planning itself can be very stressful when you don’t know what you’re doing but Michelle did an amazing job at making planning an excited experience. My favorite part was the day of the event because I literally had nothing to do besides drink champagne all day, get ready and show up at the time she told me to. I trusted her to make everything beautiful and she exceeded our expectations. Super glad we decided to go with NORA events for our party and will recommend them to anyone we know!

Michelle is awesome! You can really tell this is her passion, she has such great attention to detail, super organized and VERY well versed in the wedding industry. There is nothing Michelle can’t handle! She also has great contacts for any and all vendors in the industry. Highly recommend to any bride! Exceeded my expectations! Very knowledgeable in the wedding industry and putting together a timeline that will streamline your big day :) Great attention to detail, very organized, and can handle any task or vendor issues.
