Welcome


Your wedding day is just as important to me.

35 years in the business of planning weddings has given me an intimate view into the dynamics of families during a time of great happiness, anticipation and stress. The sense of me working "for" them quickly evolves into working "with" them. It's always an honor to play a part in such an important event.

As national bridal magazines started featuring “Real Weddings”, the first such wedding that was not from the East Coast or the South, was entitled, “A Moment in Missouri Magic.” For a wedding planner, it was the ultimate compliment. “Elegant Bride” May 1991 showcased this unique celebration coordinated by Michael Nolte.

The following year, the Kansas City bridal market beckoned. What was conceived as a satellite store, launched in the yet to be developed Hawthorne Plaza. The intersection of 119 and Roe became such a desirable shopping destination that the owner realized his attention needed to shift to Kansas City.
