Nicole Arlotta-Pepper/Owner

I have been intrigued with weddings ever since planning my own wedding many years ago! It was the excitement of the planning process (and the incredible memories to follow) that inspired me to continue a path into my career as a professional wedding coordinator! 
I received my certification with The Association of Bridal Consultants and have been planning weddings and events ever since! After working alongside some of the best wedding planners in Orlando, I decided it was time to take the next step. After meeting Nicole G., we decided to take this journey together and Nicole Squared Events was born (because two Nicoles are better than one, of course).  

I am a woman with many hats; a mother, a wife, a small business owner and a lover of the hustle. Multi-tasking should be my middle name. Weddings are something I feel I have been destined to do my entire life. I love the friendships I have created with my brides and being the person they trust to ensure their day is as perfect as they always imagined it would be. 

When I have free time (if I have free time) you will always find me at the beach, spending time with my family and dancing like no one is watching; hey what can I say? It’s always a good time for a dance party!

Nicole Gerardi-Lukens/Owner

I can remember the first time I caught the bouquet at my sister’s wedding. I was ten years old, wearing a 1980’s puffy dress and a floral crown. I held onto that bouquet so tight as my other sister tried to pull it right out of my hands and ever since, I was hooked; I was a lover of all things weddings!
Growing up in a large Italian family, my favorite thing to do was cook dinner, set the table up, and make something crafty for the centerpiece (I used to make flowers from coffee filters and you can’t make this stuff up).

Years later, I became a Rosen College of Hospitality Graduate with a Degree is Hospitality Management and met my counterpart: the other Nicole! After becoming small business owners in 2010, we have been organizing, planning and creating, and loving every minute of it.

 I love all things edgy (or rocker chic as I like to call it): fashion, traveling, puppies, a good & strong cup of coffee, and trying new restaurants. To me, this is not a job but a passion and a path I was meant to travel.

Kelly Mitchell/Lead Planner

My name is Kelly and I am a true Floridian girl! Yes, I was born and raised here in Orlando, Florida and absolutely love the Sunshine State! If you need to know one thing about me, it is that I love being active. Whether it is chasing around my four kids, going for a long run, or practicing aerial yoga, my other passion (don't hesitate to come take a class with me as I am a part-time instructor)!
My love for planning derives from homeschooling my oldest child. I realized how much I enjoyed the planning process, developing day-to-day lesson plans, planning field trips, and creating parties for my kids.

Working with Nicole Squared Events has opened up my creative side and I absolutely love transforming a Bride & Groom's dream into a reality! I love being a part of the unique experience that is every one of our weddings. As a mom, event planner, and aerialist, I have learned that there is always room for growth and that there is something to be learned in every situation. There is no obstacle that I cannot tackle. I live each day by that mindset and take it with me in every endeavor on which I embark.
