You'll find her to be fun, honest and approachable, blended with professional at all times.

Nicole has a keen attention to detail, she delights in the logistics, spreadsheets and vendor negotiations that allow her couples the true luxury to enjoy their engagement while planning their most memorable day.

Always willing to go the extra mile, be it hand delivering documents for a Mexican Priest, doing site visits to see layouts and meet the staff, or arranging a special wedding menu tasting off-site, she works on your behalf to ensure your day runs smoothly and you'll be confident in your choice well before arrival.

She feels strongly that site inspections and research is the key to finding the best locations for a couple and their guests. Travelling multiple times a year to seek out new venues, she's personally visited over 150 venues to better serve her couples.


Although a seasoned veteran, she is never done learning and is addicted to conferences and online workshops. In fact, if you know of any online learning support groups, she'd likely join that too. A little bit OCD (overly conscious of the details) she believes this truly helps her plan the best weddings possible.

When not working on weddings she is the Queen of home improvement. A self-taught carpenter, plumber, and ceramic tile fitter. (But failing electrician status after the ceiling fan incident) You'll find she always has a notebook nearby filled with her upcoming "projects".

She loves shoes, sunshine, margaritas and fish tacos. And it's entirely possible she could become that crazy cat lady in another 20 years.



Nicole loves Mexico as it offers a wide range of venues to fit all budgets, from moderate to luxury. It's a great blend of traditional culture with modern facilities, hard working friendly people, with an endless variety of activities available.

An avid learner, in just a short while she's worked alongside Nicole and has assisted with over 50 weddings in 29 locations!

Taylor loves turning dreams into reality. With her passion for weddings and a good love story, she combines her varied skills and fondness for details to ensure our couples and their guests have the best time possible.

She is a lover of all things beautiful, our master creator of content, and social engagement wizard. She ensures that our couples and vendors "feel the love" by appreciating and sharing their stories.

An optimist by nature, she can find the positive in any situation that may arise.  Her bright smile and youthful energy is contagious, guaranteed to build the excitement for our couples and their guests!


When not planning our couple's dream weddings, you may find Taylor pursuing her other passion, the theatre. Taylor has starred in a range of local productions, as well as performed in the Canadian independant film  "Black Eagle Phantasm".  She's also assisted and directed projects at the Elgin Theatre Guild.

She enjoys hockey, baseball (Red Wings & Blue Jays) and eagerly cheers on her husband's local youth Football team.

She's also a firm believer that we should have an office puppy.


Although Taylor loves the beaches and sunsets of the Caribbean and Mexico, her heart lies in Europe. Drawn to the culture and architecture of Europe, she's convinced Nicole to expand the options we offer our couples to a select few venues in Greece & Italy.  Watch for those coming next season![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="5841" img_size="400X300" css=".vc_custom_1563739611862{margin-left: 100px !important;}"][vc_empty_space height="20px"][vc_single_image image="5843" img_size="400X300" css=".vc_custom_1563740374319{margin-left: 100px !important;}"][vc_empty_space height="20px"][vc_single_image image="5844" img_size="400X300" css=".vc_custom_1563740414227{margin-left: 100px !important;}"][vc_empty_space height="20px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1561400751919{margin-right: 100px !important;margin-left: 100px !important;}"][vc_column][vc_empty_space height="64px"][vc_video link="https://youtu.be/orQTqdpVmiI" el_width="80" align="center"][vc_empty_space height="64px"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1541147921631{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 64px !important;}"][vc_column][eltdf_section_title dots="yes" position="" title_tag="" disable_break_words="no" image="5594" title="Our Destination Weddings" image_margin="-10"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_content_width="grid" css=".vc_custom_1561401151312{padding-bottom: 50px !important;}"][vc_column][eltdf_image_gallery type="grid" enable_image_shadow="no" image_behavior="white-overlay" number_of_columns="four" space_between_items="normal" images="2367,2368,2369,2370,2371,2372,2373,2374"][vc_empty_space height="64px"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
