Owner of Noorflower Events, Alina Abedin-Nieves, grew up in a small town in SC called Turbeville. Being the only South-Asian minority at her school came with its own set of challenges, but being "different" also allowed her to unlock her creativity. She became a self-taught makeup artist, content creator, designer, and event planner in her very early teens! Taking her passion for creativity, Alina attended Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC and received her Bachelor's Degree in Integrated Marketing Communication in 2017. Since then, Alina has added "marketing guru" to her skillset and has worked and consulted for Fortune 500 companies like Wells Fargo, Google, Pearson and Lowe's. Additionally, over the past 7+ years, Alina had been independently planning events and working in different parts of the event industry.
When it came time to plan her own wedding in 2021, she realized how few resources were available to couples with unique wedding concepts. As an Indian woman marrying a Puerto Rican man, she was struggling to plan a fusion wedding. The majority of vendors weren't familiar with multicultural weddings, traditions, or customs and were not comfortable working with her requests.
After going through her own wedding planning experience, realizing the importance of a planner, and racking up a portfolio of event experiences herself, Alina finally decided to start her own event business. Noorflower Events was inspired by her father, the late Mr. Zain Abedin. Alina's middle name is "Noor" (which means "light" in Arabic). Her father always called her Noor when she was little. His favorite flower was a sunflower, so she decided to combine the two words into "Noorflower." Alina is excited to work with clients that are looking for something unique and different. She never wants someone to feel like their planner or vendor "doesn't get it."
MEET THE TEAM
"Wedding planners tend to be an overlooked vendor in your wedding. I think a lot of brides see it as a luxury, and not a necessity. Unfortunately I was one of those brides and very quickly, I realized how hard it is to plan such a huge event completely alone (in my case multiple events). NFE ensured every single detail, from the music, to the cues, to the decor was perfect. Alina explained everything to my family and friends. She guided my wedding party through the process. She handled vendors flawlessly. When the cake vendor came in late (despite several confirmations and calls), Alina still handled it. If only I had realized the value of a planner sooner! Thank you NFE."
"Alina and her team are absolutely amazing! So detail oriented, organized, and talented! Their design concepts they bring to the table are so unique and special for every client. I adore all of their team and what they individually bring to the table. If you’re looking for a coordinator, designer, or planner. HIRE THEM."
"NFE took time to understand my concerns and remove my largest stressors out of the way (deciding timelines, caterers, and decor). They also served as an advocate for me and my fiancé, as we are a multi-faith and cultural couple. They helped us create custom menus that addressed all food and beverage limitations, helped us pick a design scheme, and created such detailed timelines there was no room for error. Alina is dedicated to producing the vision you want for your day and with her team, they're unstoppable!"
