I planned my very first wedding back in 2004, my sister's wedding in Somerset NJ. I naturally took on the role of chief organizer, venue contact and vendor relations person. Oh, and Maid of Honor of course:) If you ask, she will tell you she had a great time because she didn't have to keep her eyes on everything as I already took charge over managing those details. It was hectic but fun! From that point on I've gone on to plan over 20 weddings while maintaining my professional profile in pharmaceutical and medical compliance.

"I am so grateful we decided to get a day of coordinator and that we chose Nimma Ovwori! From our first email to first call I could already feel her kindness. Nimma is so organized, it's amazing. She responds quickly to all emails and calls. She took away any worries and stress we may have experienced. Nimma and her team are amazing. The wedding day went so smoothly; I had nothing to worry about! Thanks so much Nimma, it has been a pleasure getting to know you and working with you!!"

"Nimma is an extraordinary wedding planner! We hired Nimma to help coordinate our wedding and we were amazed at how efficient and seamless everything was from start to finish. Including helping with my dress shopping, managing our guests, which included people from different countries and she helping them with accommodation and transport during one of Boston's biggest weekends (Head of the Charles Regatta). We never had to worry, she handled everything like a boss and even found a table for random extra guests that showed up last minute! We couldn't have asked for a better day and she was a big part of that. Thanks to Nimma Ovwori and her team, our guests had an amazing time and enjoyed the best wedding ever!!

"My husband Ade and I got married just this past July (2016). I was not very keen on planning a 250-person wedding with 4 major wedding events and Nimma came highly recommended and we hired her.
One of the things that immediately struck me about her was that she never said "no". Some of the things I felt guilty about asking her to do like "can you field calls from my mom about the wedding and handle her requests?" lol. She was always able to do it, whatever the "it" was. She did an excellent job finding us vendors as well, like when our DJ bailed on us and she found another one, the decor vendor, the rehearsal dinner caterer, my make up artist, the glassware rental vendor, transportation for wedding stuff, even a last minute saxophonist! She found them all, handled their contracts and their final payments on the day of my wedding!
She held down fort and handled all communications with my venue managers, all the vendors, the wedding party etc very well. There were a few critical needs in the final hour like surprise wedding guests of my parents needing hotel rooms and our hotel was fully booked out, but she took care of it. I could go on and on.
Nimma did all this with calmness, enjoyment, periodic conference calls and spreadsheets lol. She was extremely organized and on top of everything! Thanks Nimma!
