Since the launch of Ivory + Stone Event Co., formerly R. Nicole Events, the team has earned a notable reputation for exceeding expectations over the last seven years in the San Diego wedding planning industry. Robyn, Rhylae & Bryce collectively have led countless successful wedding days and have worked together to cultivate the Ivory + Stone style and brand into what it is today! We love a clean, modern and timeless design aesthetic that reflects a collaboration of the couple's vision and our expertise.

To us, love knows no bounds, and we happily work with couples in the LGBTQ+ community and from all religious and ethnic backgrounds.
