A passion for international weddings and an addiction to happy clients ;-)
My name is Nicki, I am the international wedding planner behind Souvenir Weddings & Events, and I absolutely love my work. Nothing feels more rewarding than the smiles on my couples’ faces when they say ‘Yes, I do’ or when they open the dance floor with their first dance! I love creating beautiful weddings, especially for couples who live abroad, and have different cultural backgrounds but also for couples who want to have a destination wedding.
All these aspects make wedding planning more complex and difficult than a “normal” wedding and I am here to help you through this amazing journey! Being Swiss-Belgian and having married a Mexican-Dutch, I have personally experienced the challenges that an intercultural and multilingual wedding brings ;-)
For me, it is extremely important that you, as a couple, enjoy every moment of wedding planning. I am here to answer your questions, take care of the stressful tasks, and give you all the support you need.
I love to hear your stories, plans, ideas so that we can make sure that your wedding really reflects both of your personalities! During our first meeting, we will get to know each other and I will share with you tips on how and where to start, how to make sure to respect your budget, and more.
It goes without saying that I love organizing weddings for everyone and that I don’t discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or anything else!
Send me a message so we can set up the first meeting, I would love to hear from you!
"I would never have thought of myself as a person who would use a wedding planner/coordinator for their wedding and now I can't recommend it enough. We were so lucky to have Nicki's help to plan and coordinate our wedding. She was consistently responsive and flexible which made the planning process super easy. I loved how she always thought of so many things that were totally not on my radar. She also had great advice on negotiating with vendors which saved us a lot. Another thing we really liked was that she speaks English and German, perfectly. This was very helpful for interacting with all the vendors and our guests!
As the wedding day schedule needed to change on the fly, Nicki managed everything behind the scenes to ensure it ran smoothly and stayed enjoyable for us and our guests. Knowing that all we had to do was relax and enjoy the day was a huge relief. We felt like guests at our own wedding and our friends loved her too! It was truly our dream wedding day and we couldn't have done it without her."
"Nicki and her team created an absolutely flawless wedding experience for my daughter. All I can say is that they seemed to disappear into the background while seamlessly working throughout the day (and weeks before) to allow the wedding and reception to unfold completely naturally and effortlessly for my daughter, her spouse, and everyone in attendance. As the father of the bride, I was naturally anxious that two things happen: 1) my daughter not spend the day worrying and 2) everyone have a splendid and memorable time. Although I have extremely high standards (being a physician), my expectations were happily exceeded by the professionalism of Nicki and her team.
Specifically, they prepped the rooms for the various events well-ahead of time and meticulously; they integrated perfectly with the hotel staff and catering; they visited the site ahead of the event to make sure everything would go well; and they packed up everything at the end of the night to make the next morning a joy for us.
I rarely if ever write reviews, but felt happy to give five stars based upon my experience as compared to the many weddings I have attended elsewhere."
"Nicki is absolutely amazing!! She is organized, patient, and calm (everything you want in a wedding planner). Nicki worked with us through Covid when things were constantly changing---she listened to our worries and wishes and did everything she could to make our dream wedding come true. I would not have been able to pull off our wedding if it wasn't for her. I 100% recommend Nicki to anyone looking for a wedding planner or and events coordinator."
"I've come to know Nicki as a person with incredible passion and creativity, which she is using to make every event the best ever. She is all on the details and makes sure to de-stress any host. If you are planning an event, you need Nicki. Really.*
"Nicki organised for us the perfect wedding, she then coordinated everything during the day so we could enjoy the moment without having to worry about anything. She is also super quick to reply to any concern or question that we had. Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without her!"
"From our first meeting to the days after our wedding, Nicki accompanied us through the whole process of defining what kind of wedding we want, what will be important elements to us, what are our options, and how do we manage any obstacles on the way. She does this in a way that is never invasive or pushy but always mindful, kind, and highly professional.
Nicki has an exceptional talent for asking the right questions and translating your answers and wishes into actions. No matter what problem you throw at her, she will find a solution that not only solves the original issue but actually makes you think that now you have gained something on top. A real Swiss knife for organising weddings and events!
It goes without a saying that she fully satisfied all the "basics" of what an international wedding planner promises: She fluently speaks an incredible number of languages, quickly followed up on any items left open after our meetings, smoothly ran the event organisation on the day itself, and found us all the vendors that we were looking for, including an incredible wedding venue that exactly matched our expectations.
In summary, if you are still looking for someone to help you organise a special event, you can stop looking and hire Souvenir Weddings & Events."
"I have been working with many vendors in my photography career, but I have never connected with any other the same way as I connected with Nicki. Why is that? Most certainly because Nicki is the best in what she is doing, she listens to your wishes, she understands your needs to create a dream setting for your wedding day. With her knowledge and high standards of quality she is so pleasant to work with. Even I don’t have to be worried about anything, as I know that under Nicki’s supervision everything is going to be perfect."
"I would really recommend Nicki. She helped us figure out options for our two weddings and gave us very useful recommendations during Covid-19. Her approach is really as if you’re speaking to a friend and she is very easy going."
"Easy to communicate with, smart planning approach, beautiful events and unforgettable moments! I DEFINITELY recommend Nicki for your weddings!! Thank you Nicki for all the beautiful events you‘ve planned and created for me!"
"Nicki has been organizing all kinds of events for me for a while now and I couldn't trust anyone else with since she started. From small dinners, to family gatherings, she makes sure everything is the way you want it with no complications. Would definitely recommend her services if you don't want to worry about organizing it yourself"
