more about Kate & Nicole
I'm Kate-- Associate Wedding Planner and lover of learning! I'm here to provide perfectly polished lists that teach soon-to-be newlyweds how to make their dream wedding a reality. We believe every love story is unique and beautiful, and we can't wait to bring your vision to life. Welcome to the family!
We have been wanting to start this for a little while now, so when we found a slice of time in our busy planning lives, we decided to take it and get this thing rolling. Not sure how you got here? Not sure who ‘we’ are? Then let’s start with an introduction!
Nicole Sirpilla, Owner & Lead Planner, is a specialist in everything wedding. In her 9+ years of experience in the wedding industry, she knows all the right questions to ask and details to include in order to make your wedding day 100% you. Nicole created Sirpilla Soirees while living in Washington D.C. in the summer of 2017, becoming certified through the Bridal Society in 2018, and has loved every minute since in this rollercoaster, love-centered industry. We are now located in Canton, OH serving midwest & destination couples!
As for me, I’m Kate, Nicole’s right hand gal. I started with Nicole just this past summer, June 2020, while I finished school at Ohio State. This year has been a bit bonkers in terms of graduating and finding a job (#thanksCOVID), but I truly couldn’t have landed in a better place than right here in my hometown working with Nicole! You can find me assisting Nicole in the office, coordinating my own weddings starting in Summer 2021, creating signage and illustrations for our couples, & learning everything I can along the way (I’m in the process of getting my Bridal Society Certification right now, woohoo!).
On wedding days you won’t catch us without our walkie talkies, color coded timelines, on-brand aprons, & our Emergency Kit filled with everything you might need on your wedding day. We’re starting this blog as another way of connecting with our clients, our followers, and anyone who may need advice as they enter the world of wedding planning (we know it can get crazy sometimes)! So if love is your thing & you’ve had your wedding Pinterest board since you were in 7th grade, stick around as we dance through our days, working with the best couples ever, and making wedding dreams come true!
There is a bunch more about us on our About page, which you can get to using the button in the right sidebar if you're on a desktop or in our main menu if on mobile, but here are a few extra, wedding day favorites from us that you won't find anywhere else!
