Nicole Ellison // Owner & Lead Wedding Planner
One of the most frequently asked questions I get from couples is “What made you decide to become a San Diego wedding planner?” The short answer is that I saw the movie The Wedding Planner when I was 15 and became inspired (true story!). Fast forward to 2012, and I’d graduated college and had a wedding of my own. I decided to go out on a limb and start wedding planning as a profession. If J-Lo could do it, I certainly could, right?!
The more serious, extended answer is because I love everything about the wedding planning process. I have the best job in the world. I get to become friends with my clients, and meet new and inspiring vendors all the time. Being a wedding planner means that my job is never stagnant. I’m always meeting new people and learning ways to improve the planning process for my clients.
Aside from marrying my husband, starting Love Marks the Spot has been the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. I love my clients (past and present, you guys seriously rock!) and the bond we form throughout the planning process. Hearing people tell me that they’re thankful for my help means everything to me and reinforces that I’m doing exactly what I was meant to do.
A little about me:
I’m a Seattle native – we moved to San Diego in 2008 (wow, has it really been that long!?) after my husband was stationed here with the Navy. Since then, I’ve fallen in love with boogie boarding, yoga and farmer’s markets. If I’m not doing anything wedding related, you can find me cooking or reading. I’m going to toot my own horn for a moment and brag that I’m a wonderful cook. My husband will vouch for that;) I consider myself to be a highly productive person and almost never “relax”. I’m always doing something. Oh, and I also love cats! I have three of my own, and I’m content being a “cat-mom” for now:) My husband was recently stationed in Guam, so for the time being, all of my wedding planning work is done remotely, and I’m currently loving island life <3
