With 15 years of wedding and special events planning experience, Ivori Lipscomb-Warren consults with clients to design flawless events to be remembered and cherished for a lifetime. Once a bride herself, Ivori believes in taking the time to listen to a couple’s desired wishes, and in closely guiding them through what can be a daunting planning process. Ivori began her wedding design career when she apprenticed for Diane George with Covenant Weddings. A quick study, it wasn’t long before she decided to strike out on her own and set up a consulting firm, then called Simple yet Elegant Affairs—and recently rebranded to Ivori Nicole Events. The Ivori Nicole Events moniker is more reflective of Ivori’s distinctive style, ‘Vintage Country Chic’. Ivori has designed weddings and special events for couples in Maryland, Delaware, Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, and various international locales. Her eye for seamlessly integrating both established etiquette and innovative industry trends, has garnered her features in publications like Ebony.com, BaltimoreBride.com, Pretty Pear Bride and Munaluchi Bride. Additionally her writing has been featured in Perfect Wedding Guide.

Ivori holds degrees in both Psychology and Human Resources Management–and is currently working towards a doctoral degree in Higher Education with a specialization in Educational Leadership and Management. She is also the Chief Operating Officer for Strategy & Planning for the Warren Community Cares Foundation, active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and resides in Northern Maryland with her husband Kevin and two fur babies, Kole and Kloe.
