Savannah is a city full of character, just like you. We understand your love story is uniquely built upon your upbringing, where you've lived, where you live now, your meet cute, and so much more. We believe listening to our couple's needs is key to understanding everything about how they want their wedding day to go and we are here to support you all the way.
We believe every couple deserves to enjoy their wedding planning process all the way through wedding day. We strive for our team to take the pressure and stress away while enabling couples to enjoy the engagement season and focus on the fun parts of planning. We believe in creating events that feel like the couple, an experience that guests will walk away from feeling like they were immersed in the life and style of the couple.
A Savannah transplant, Nicole was born and raised on the opposite side of the country in rainy Portland, Oregon. Nicole is outdoorsy, weird, creative, funky and hard-working. She loves flowers, the beach, tacos, cats, dinosaurs (especially her Springer Spaniel, T. Rex,) kickball and Instagram. On any given workday Nicole can be found replying to 100's of wedding planning e-mails, creating floral design proposals, managing the shop and doing all the tasks that come with running and operating a small business.
She is passionate about every aspect of weddings and loves being able to run a business that helps brides find their wedding dress and accessories, and then going a step further to offer wedding planning and wedding coordination as well as floral design to couples.

She really listened to our vision and our dream of a wedding weekend and helped us bring it all to life. She supported one of our big priorities in utilizing as many black-owned, POC-owned and female-owned vendors as possible. They made our wedding day absolutely spectacular! No detail was not thought of or executed. Our guests felt so taken care of. We heard from many of our guests how fun and beautiful the entire weekend was. Many of them mentioned the hard working Ivory & Beau staff.
It definitely made the entire wedding planning process so seamless. We feel truly blessed to have gotten the opportunity to work with such an awesome business and wonderful ladies. Ivory and Beau is a one-stop-shop for all your wedding needs and I recommend choosing them for all aspects of your wedding!
Claire was my anchor on wedding day and I trusted her implicitly. However, even that could not prepare me for the shock of how PERFECTLY she put everything together!!! Her and Olivia are clearly a well-oiled machine when it comes to working together, and this whole group of girls make it look easy & fun while doing it!
One special thing we love to do for clients is plan entire weekends for them! Make a vacation for your guests to enjoy.
Our fave part of wedding day is creating beautiful wedding floral installations for both ceremonies and receptions.
