In this episode, we go behind the scenes with Nikki to talk about how she has grown her wedding planning business from a company of one to six.

Nikki Sciurba is not your average wedding planner. She is somehow magically laid back and calm all the while paying meticulous attention to the details.

As some of you may know, we’re getting married this September in Asheville. Planning a wedding takes way more time and attention than we could have imagined and we couldn’t have planned ours without the help of Nikki Sciurba, founder and owner of one of Asheville’s top wedding planning businesses, Carolina Love Events.

Here’s What You’ll Learn

  • The steps Nikki took to start her wedding planning business in Asheville (and what she ended up changing)
  • How she manages conflicts and problems that arise on wedding days
  • Advice on how to write vows and speeches
  • Which wedding apps can help couples through the process (and which don’t)
  • Some of the ways she helps her couples make their wedding days unique representations of their relationships
  • Nikki’s insider picks on the best things to do, places to see, and food to eat in Asheville
