Perhaps it’s the gorgeous weather or the proximity to world-class wines that has made Napa and Sonoma’s wine country region a go-to destination for discerning brides and grooms. But the sheer number of venues, vendors and myriad other decisions to be made can be a headache for busy couples who would rather focus simply on the business of saying “I do.” That’s where Nicol Turner, owner of Little Blue Box Weddings steps in.
This full-service boutique wedding planning firm brings the epitome of Northern California style and charm into the bridal arena, with Turner herself the capable maestro behind the hundreds of stunning Northern California weddings she has artfully orchestrated.
Although born and raised on the East Coast, Turner moved west to attend Stanford University. During her time there, she assisted in the planning a few senior class activities and sorority events and discovered that she was hooked. “I’ve known since I was 18 years old that I wanted to be an event and wedding planner,” she says.
In 2005, Little Blue Box Weddings was born. Based in downtown Napa, the firm has developed a reputation for stellar client service and a simple yet elegant design aesthetic. Although in constant demand, Turner and her team carefully curate dream nuptials for just a handful of couples each year. Sun dappled vineyards? Lakeside vows? Little Blue Box Weddings has perfectly planned it all.
