2011 in Review

Wow, what a year we've had here at Amy Nixon Events! This was a record breaking year by far, and we're looking forward to even more growth in the years to come! Huge thanks to my staff who helped throughout the year, because none of this would have been possible without you! Love you guys and gals! (Jamie Nixon, Whitney Selvage, Shannon Owens, Liz Sauer and Jeremy Schaffer). Also, thanks to the wonderful vendors and clients we worked with this year! It wouldn't have been such a great year without you!

We wish everyone a safe and happy new year, and much success and happiness in 2012!

Congrats Marie & Haja!

We did some awesome centerpieces and bouquets for a winter wedding yesterday! The bride wanted snow on her wedding day....and she got it! It was really coming down all day long, so I hope she was able to get some amazing snow pictures! The wintery centerpieces were silver manzanita branches with hanging crystals and white flowers (hydrangeas, roses and stephanotis with crystals).



Flowers: Amy Nixon Events, Avon Lake
