I’m ordinarily so type-A and detail-oriented that event planning is quite stressful, but I felt like I had nothing to worry about on my wedding day.

Briana Dixon - owner and lead wedding planner

I love ruffles, sparkles, and all things turquoise.

My favorite place to be is near the water, especially the lake.

I can't get enough of summer. I love the sun, the heat, and the smell of summer rain. There's nothing better than watching a summer thunderstorm with a glass of wine in hand.

I love the personal aspect of my job, and my emails often contain way too many exclamation points, ellipses, and smiley faces.

My favorite part of any wedding is the moment the couple sees each other for the first time, and those precious times one of them gets teary-eyed at the sight of the person they love most in the world walking towards them. It's in those moments that I am so grateful to have this job and be a part of this most important step in a couple’s life together.


Crystal Christman - day-of coordinator

I am a total girly-girl, and think everything is better with a sprinkle of glitter.

Summer is my favorite season, and I enjoy being outside...listening to a country concert on a warm night, grilling on the barbeque or soaking up the rays at the beach.

I love the Ravens, and will always be seen wearing purple on Fridays.

I started with Nouvelle Weddings in 2009. After planning my own wedding, I fell in love with the process and all of the details that go along with planning such a special day. I enjoy getting to know each couple on a personal level and love helping them turn their vision into reality. I stay up to date with the latest styles and trends in the wedding world - Hello Pinterest! - and always bring creative and new ideas to my clients.

My calm manner is a great asset in high pressure or stressful situations. I strive to make each couple feel comfortable and at ease so they're able to enjoy their day.



Sara Fletcher Welinsky - day-of coordinator

I love all things pink and anything that sparkles.

My favorite season is spring! I love the blooming flowers, cool weather and springtime rains. I enjoy a great book with a glass of wine, shopping and the South!

Having prior wedding industry experience in North Carolina, I started working with Nouvelle Weddings in 2014. I love the diversity of each wedding and all of the unique qualities that come along with them. It’s hard to pick a favorite part of weddings but the look on the groom’s face when he sees his bride for the first time is irreplaceable.

My organizational skills keep me prepared for every event and allow me to make sure my couples have a relaxed, stress- free day. My enthusiasm and passion for weddings keep me learning and eager to come up with new designs and ideas.
