The most rewarding part of being an Event Planner is the “Happy Client.” It is such an honor and privilege to be such an integral part of a special event. Here’s what some of our clients have shared with us!
We were stressed and frustrated with many of the decisions that our original wedding planner was making and decided to change directions by hiring Nishaka one month before our daughter Ashley’s wedding! It was absolutely the best decision we made! She is without a doubt, an outstanding wedding coordinator, a true blessing and a prayer answered! Her expertise, calm demeanor, creativity and attention to detail, allowed us to completely relax, knowing that our daughter’s “dream wedding” was in the most capable of hands. I continue to be amazed at how quickly Nishaka was able to create such a lovely and memorable event for Ashley and Frankie. Their November wedding is still a topic of conversation and it brings us great joy to hear from our guests that it was “the most beautiful and enjoyable wedding” they had ever attended. Nishaka, you absolutely got the job done and The Coote-Jones family will be forever grateful to you and your team.
In June 2013, I had a hunch my boyfriend Jaron was going to ask me to be his wife. So, of course I did what any woman would do and I went straight to the computer and Googled: “Wedding Ideas!” What I should have done was searched for: “The Best Wedding Planner in Greensboro!” That would have brought me to Nishaka Proctor and Events by Nishaka. At first, I was determined to plan my 300-guest wedding by myself with the help of friends. But, the sheer size of our guest list and my lack of design detail overwhelmed me. Friends didn’t come through and soon the people who promised to help were nowhere to be found. After 3 months, planning our wedding became a giant pain in my neck and the fun I always imagined having went out the door. In comes Nishaka Proctor. Nishaka helped me capture the elegance, tradition and class we dreamed of having for both our wedding ceremony and reception. Her endless contacts helped secure the best services and prices. We had the top floral designer, invitation specialist and vendors for lighting and linens. The detail and arrangements were a stunning compliment to our elegant affair. Nishaka kept us on task, on budget and excited for our big day! Best of all; on our wedding day all we had to do was get married. Nishaka and her team took care of everything and the day was flawless! Our wedding remains the most-talked about and admired event our family and friends have attended to date. We couldn’t have done it without Events by Nishaka. And we can’t thank her enough for giving us our dream wedding! The love, attention, time, and care Nishaka put into our breathtaking wedding was paramount and unlike any other. The day was spectacular and I will definitely be calling her for our five year anniversary or our future child’s first birthday – whichever comes first.
Thank you Nishaka and we love you!
Tracey and Jaron
Celena & JR “After getting engaged, Anthony and I had no clue where to start the wedding planning process. We had a million ideas, but didn’t know how to make them a reality. Choosing Events by Nishaka for full wedding planning and design was the best decision that we could’ve made. Nishaka was able to appreciate our vision, respect our budget, and direct us to vendors who could provide exactly what we wanted. Over the many months that we worked together, she really became like family. Nishaka has such a kind, warm spirit, and is consistently professional and organized. She was always available to address our questions and concerns, no matter how small. It was such a gift to us knowing that we didn’t have to stress the details. Anthony and I were blessed to have the wedding of our dreams and we highly recommend Events by Nishaka to any couple wanting the same experience.
~April & Anthony Rayner, married 7/12/14.” Talk about serving your customers! D’Angelo and I are both in the Military, so we share a similar mindset. Nishaka epitomized what it means to have structure and organization to a T! We were immensely impressed with the entire decor from the ceremony to the reception. The planning process went flawlessly without any hiccups. I can not say enough about how valuable Nishaka was in the overall planning, coordination, and organization of the most beautiful day of our lives together! Dione & Dangelo
I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful we were to have Nishaka. She made the entire process so much fun! Everything was so easy to decide on because she has top of the line vendors that she works with. One of the most important things we looked for in a planner was someone who was organized and was full of great ideas! The wedding day was perfect…literally… Nothing went wrong. And we didn’t have to stress at all! It was AMAZING! If your looking for a wedding planner this is your girl! You WILL be happy with your choice! 🙂
An amazing testimonial from the Kayla’s Mom, Diane Michaels! So humbled and grateful!
When my daughter Kayla got engaged, my first thought was to contact Nishaka. I knew she was organized and had great attention to detail, but I had no idea what a wedding planner really did. Nishaka listened to her, took our budget, and helped us to make Kayla’s dreams come true! She has a wonderful group of vendors that are very professional and Nishaka has great ideas to make the process of planning a wedding fun and exciting. She kept tasks simple and spaced out so that it doesn’t become overwhelming. She was always available when we needed her, she took care of any concerns we might have had, and the Wedding was so much fun. Nishaka took care of setting up all vendor appointments, keeping us in budget, keeping the vision of the wedding in tact when we started looking at other ideas, and creating their dream wedding. The most important thing Nishaka did was allowed Kayla and I to enjoy the process of planning this important event in her life.
On the days leading up to the wedding, Nishaka made sure everything was lined up and ready for the wedding. On the wedding day Nishaka and her team kept everything organized and worked behind the scenes to make the day perfect. They worked like secret agents making sure things were taken care of. I didn’t have to worry about anything but enjoying the day with my daughter and family. It was truly a blessing for me to be able to enjoy the day by Kayla’s side and know that everything was being set up and would be ready for the wedding. As Mother of the Bride, I can’t tell you how much I appreciated Nishaka and her team.
You really can’t put a price on cherished memories. Having Events by Nishaka as the wedding planner was a great investment. Nishaka goes above and beyond to make sure the day is perfect. I would highly recommend Nishaka as a wedding planner for anyone looking to reduce the stress of being a bride (or Mother of the Bride) in a large or small wedding, and interested in working with someone who is personable and has a desire to help you realize your personal wedding hopes and dreams within your budget!
Events by Nishaka played a major role in creating the wedding ceremony and reception of our dreams! Nishaka and her team were personable, professional, and experienced in the work they did. They worked flawlessly throughout our special day to keep everything on schedule and exactly as planned. Nishaka’s keen attention to details, creativity, and wise advice connected us with the best vendors while keeping us within our budget. We definitely recommend Events by Nishaka for any special event!
Working with Nishaka and her wonderful staff made my wedding day a memorable event. All my husband and I had to do was show up and enjoy our day. There was nothing for us to worry about the day of or the days that led up to it. The professionalism is second to none. We love you Nishaka!
Working with Events by Nishaka was the BEST decision we made for our wedding. She listened to our vision, stuck to our budget, and made our dream become a beautiful reality. Nishaka is professional, honest, timely and efficient. If something went wrong on our wedding day we never knew it…all we had to do was show up and Nishaka and her team handled everything. Nishaka is a beautiful person inside and out and is committed to her business. You never feel like just another bride with her. She becomes your best friend. I would definitely recommend her for any event. She is definitely the best in our eyes. Evette and Mike Briskey

Nishaka took care of everything, catering, decorating, music, cake, etc. All the little things that make a great celebration! Nishaka even helped us learn a new line dance!

“The magnitude of thank you’s cannot be expressed!”
“We, Mr. Christopher and Tina Williams would so “GREATLY” love to express how we greatly appreciate “Events With Excellence.” The minute I received the returned phone call from this extravagant business, all stress was “GONE”. In the beginning, I thought that I could pretty much handle planning my wedding all my own, but as the stressed exceeded abundantly, “EWE” was there to call on. When I say an answered prayer that was exactly what it was. Chris and I married on March 6, 2010, since then, every day someone who attended or played a part in our weddings, has complements the business! I would not only recommend, but I would advise anyone who needs a wedding coordinator, to choose “EWE”. To whom it may concern, I “PROMISE” you will be so blessed with love, care, and encouragement as well. A place of business that you, your wedding party, and guest will always remember the quality of service that was rendered. It’s just that “GREAT”!! Thank you “Events With Excellence”!!! ~Christopher & Tina Williams
I am writing to thank you and to let you know how much I appreciated your excellent direction of Erin and Luke’s wedding. The wedding and reception were even more beautiful than I could have imagined. All along, my main concern was how were all of these things we had planned going to come together to make one seamless event. How were all of these people supposed to know when to do their part? Well, you solved that problem for me absolutely beautifully. After seeing your preparation, I felt so relieved knowing I could trust you to anticipate what was needed and then, if necessary, to handle any unforeseen situation that came along. On the day of the wedding, I told myself to leave it to you and enjoy. I put the worry out of my mind and I enjoyed the whole event. Best of all, I can recall and reflect on all of the happy moments that happened. It wasn’t just a blur of activity. You gave me the best gift that day – – peace of mind that we were going to have a beautiful ceremony and a fun reception that everyone would enjoy. Thank you and Yolonda from the bottom of my heart for helping make that day wonderful and special for the entire family. It couldn’t have happened so beautifully without you.”

Michael Jordon, Tiger Woods, Billie Jean King, Wayne Gretzky, Peggy Fleming, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, and Pat Manning, will all go down in history as perhaps the greatest players ever to play their game. Let me put it this way, if “Event Planning” was a sport, then Nishaka Proctor would go down in history as perhaps the greatest event planner that ever planned an event.
