Founder, Lead Planner
Hi, I'm Nageen! I have a love of adventure and enjoy living life to the fullest. Most of all, I LOVE TO HAVE FUN!!
I am passionate about creating exciting out of the box weddings and events. Additionally, being a small business owner has allowed me to follow my passions.
In my free time, I travel and try new cuisines. I love food! I am a true believer in trying everything at least once, and I live for a delicious frozen treat! (If you are too and you want to keep up with my frozen adventures, make sure to follow me on Instagram @Frozen4thewin)
Within my 12 year career, I have been published in Frederick Weddings twice and received the Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award in 2017. I've also had the chance to work with some amazing charities including St. Jude Children's Hospital, Saving Grace Animal Rescue, Maryland Horse Rescue, Knock Out Abuse, Women's Giving Circle, Boy's and Girls Club, and Helping Up Mission.
The Glamour N'Glitz Events Journey
I started Glamour N'Glitz Events over 9 years ago with a clear vision and a strong desire to provide a service that eased the planning process of events and weddings. It's both inspiring and encouraging that a business that started off with just me is now growing. I started planning a few weddings and now I assist local venues, provide mentorship to new inspiring planners, and have expanded to other cities.
How did I get here?
I've always been a creative person and was always the planner of all our families' and friends' adventures. When I went to college, at first I didn't believe I could make a business out of my passion. Instead, I majored in Social Work (I know totally opposite) at Salisbury University. During my time in college, my part-time job was with a wedding boutique. One day my boss, at the time, asked me to coordinate a wedding for her event business, and it was amazing! From there on out, it was the snowball effect and I was hooked.
Soon after, I went and familiarized myself with other event industry vendors' (DJ's, caterers, bridal shows, concerts, celebrity event planners, florists and much more) careers. I thought to myself, "if I am to plan and organize, I must know what each vendor provides and how they provide their services." With this background, I believe when something goes wrong at a wedding. I have the background knowledge to figure out what to do next. For Example, a wedding bouquet falls apart. I can take my knowledge of working with flowers to create a brand new bouquet.
After graduating and working in the social work field for 2 years, I realized this made me unhappy and I wanted to provide a service that made people smile and feel joy! I finally launched Glamour N'Glitz Events in 2011.
However, it's not just about planning events or my story, it's your story, your passions, and your personality. Weddings & events are more than logistic work. It's the feeling that happens before, during, and after each wedding and event that resonates with most of our clients. This is why we have a 5-star rating and I am super grateful!
Please don't just take it from me. Here is what one of our clients had to say:
"Nageen and Amber were great! I opted for the month-of coordination and Nageen actually contacted me beforehand to get started. She is thorough and so personable. Having them allowed me to just enjoy the day without any worries and that is absolutely priceless."
I want you to have the experience she did. Let's chat and get your event or wedding on my schedule before someone else does.
