Owner & Principal Wedding Planner

Nicole Sanchez 

From an early age, I was mesmerized by weddings! The grandeur and opulence of such lavish affairs was truly captivating. After graduating with a Master's Degree from The University of Florida (Go Gators!), my enthusiasm for weddings led me to establish Pavé Weddings. As a seasoned event designer with over 17 years of wedding experience, I bring a wealth of knowledge about the wedding industry and have had the honor to work with many fabulous brides and grooms. Weddings are my passion! This passion radiates throughout every event that I am a part of. My positive spirit, creative designs, and impeccable attention to detail blend with each couples' unique desires to create a recipe for wedding day perfection.


I am a member of the prestigious Association of Bridal Consultants and I continually strive to maintain their high standard of excellence. I am excited about the opportunity to share in your special day and help to create a unique ceremony that radiates brilliance and is filled with memories that will last a lifetime.

Here's a little bit about me in 3, 2, 1....

I fell in love with the industry of event planning while completing my Bachelor’s degree at Rollins College. While there, I worked closely with non-profit organizations putting together events that encouraged the community to come together. Through those jobs, I saw the happiness and importance that comes from togetherness. I saw how bringing ease to event execution can truly alter the day for the better. My path of experiences led me to Pavé Weddings and I couldn’t be more grateful to have found such an empowering company to continue my growth. I have been fortunate enough to work with couples and elevate their dreams into reality. While wedding planning, I am furthering my education at Florida International University completing a Master's degree in Hospitality and Event management with a specialization in mega-events. I am beyond excited to put into play the skills I’ve acquired to curate your special day!

My path within the wedding industry thus far has consisted of incredible career opportunities such as working as a wedding assistant, catering assistant, venue manager, lead coordinator, and so much more. My love + interest in all things weddings is truly unexplainable…I always knew I would become a wedding planner since I was just twelve years old! I am grateful to have built such a strong network within the Chicago + Milwaukee area (midwest is home!) and have now extended those connections out here in the Sunshine State. The greatest part about pursuing a career in the wedding industry is all the beautiful, diverse, and creative individuals, clients, and teams that I have been lucky to both work with and learn from with each and every project. My passion for all things weddings sits deep in my core - I truly feel called to create “the best day ever” for all of my clients and I look forward to continuing to excel in the wedding field alongside the best team of women here in the Orlando area! Twelve year old me would be SO excited to see my life now, full of weddings and bridal gowns and florals, oh my!

I have been honored to work in the wedding industry with so many beautiful couples and their families for many years. Putting together one of the most important days in a couple’s life brings me pure joy! As a little girl, I would dream of my own wedding and gown. My aunt was a seamstress and I would watch in awe as she would turn the fabric into something beautiful. I loved to pick up pieces of fabric that fell from the sewing machine and make wedding dresses for my own Barbie’s. Never did I imagine that I would be working with such amazing brides - and their dream dresses - on their big day! Wedding planning has been one of the most rewarding experiences and I look forward to making many future couples' wedding dreams come true!

Weddings are full of emotion and I am the planner that tears up every time! There is just something really special about the first time the couple sees each other on the day they have dreamed about for so long. Once I discovered my passion for wedding planning, I was fortunate enough to join the Pavé Weddings team and have loved working with amazing couples. I am calm, organized, and dedicated. I enjoy helping with ideas and putting all the details together for a memorable wedding day. My goal is to make wedding planning a fun experience for each couple and to help them execute their wedding vision without stress. When I am not helping plan a wedding, I am having fun with my husband and two kids.

Melissa R.

I am a native Floridian who picked up everything and moved to Rhode Island to be with the love of my life (after knowing him for only 3 months)! I truly understand what a whirlwind love

can be. I enjoy making my couples’ wedding day a truly magical event. As a graduate of the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and Rhode Island College with a Bachelor’s in Nursing, I was a nurse for 10 years before deciding to stay home as a new mother. 


As I began my career in wedding planning, I saw many parallels to my previous profession. In both careers you must be organized, work well under pressure, have attention to detail, and have the desire to genuinely want to help others. I thoroughly enjoy making sure the wedding day goes off without a hitch. My ultimate goal is for my couples to know that everything is being taken care of so that they can truly relax and enjoy their special day. I have been blessed to work with many amazing couples and I look forward to many more in the future.

I am a Central Florida native and attended The University of Central Florida's Rosen College of Hospitality where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Event Management. Ever since I was young, I loved being organized and planning. However, it wasn't until I was older that I found a passion for weddings as it was the perfect compliment to what I loved. I enjoy sifting through the wedding details with clients and watching their reaction on the big day as they enter their reception.
