I am the founder and creative director, a mother and a wife, a shoe and handbag addict, with a crazy appetite for spicy food. I love to laugh; I can sing and dance, but do NOT like brussel sprouts and frizzy drinks. I love bold colours, pretty prints, chunky jewelry and love to throw a good shindig, be it intimate or lavish, any time any day. You will often find me at a home goods store, home depot or fabric store or at a flea market scouting something interesting.

"Nidhana and her team were excellent! She adapted to various changes from doubling of wedding guests (150 to 350 guests), working with various contractors. She accommodated our guests by having bilingual assistant, incorporating cultural customs. Our guests loved the event, thank you for all your hard work :)"

"Paradise Parkway will design you a fairytale... We hired NK initially as our day of coordinator. We met with her and she told us about her experience with event design in Sri Lanka and how she was excited to be planning weddings again in the US. As she is building her business, her price was great for our little budget and she proved right away that she would go above and beyond just the day of. We liked her attitude - she is sweet but also very honest and direct, things we knew we would need from a coordinator on our wedding day.
We kept in touch other the months with us passing over vendors as we signed them. She mentioned that Paradise Parkway designs events in addition to coordinating and that she could do the full decor and florals too. There were a couple of reasons we said yes - the first being that she showed us her portfolio and she does have a wonderful eye, the second being that our venue didn't include other services so it felt great to know everything was going to be taken care of (linens, decor...etc).
We really liked her sketches of what the day could look like. She gave us multiple options and different price points and we worked together to find the right look. I'm not knowledgeable about flowers, so I told her my color palette and theme, and sent some pictures of other bouquets I liked. She provided a list of the flowers she was going to include, and what similar bouquets looked like. I truly felt like she understood our personality and what we wanted visually from the day.
When the day arrived - we were blown away. The flowers were huge arrangements stuffed full of pale greens and huge blooms in shades of pink and white. Some were HUGE, like the ones at the altar - yet always elegant. The ones lining the aisle were ferns with tall delicate flower poking up. The bouquets were sprawling and they smelled incredible. Our reception hall was transformed, and I received compliment after compliment about how beautiful everything was.
She definitely nailed the decor and very beautifully incorporated our personal elements - like lawn games, a candy buffet and letters made of succulents. She even set up the center pieces so that people could take them home afterwards.
Our day was stunning thanks to NK at Paradise Parkway!"
