Born in the Midwest, Nichole Haugen Shin was raised with a strong work ethic and developed unquestionable integrity and principled values.  After receiving her bachelor's degree from Concordia College in Minnesota, Nichole held several positions in catering and events before relocating to Hawai'i in 2001.  

It was her position as a catering director for a private downtown club in Honolulu - together with the fact that she is a romantic at heart - that inspired Nichole to enter the wedding industry.  Under the guidance and mentoring of prestigious wedding planner Social Butterfly, Nichole discovered her own creative talent and has honed her skills and expertise as a wedding coordinator since 2003.

Nichole's mission is to provide a worry-free, stress-free, drama-free experience for each couple.  Her approach to the "perfect" wedding is to collaborate with the bride and groom to create a unique wedding concept that is distinctively theirs - always staying focused on the details and ensuring an event that is flawlessly orchestrated beginning to end.



For many newly engaged couples, the planning of their wedding may become overwhelming and can, unfortunately, take away some of the magic and romance that an engagement should bring.

My goal is to take the couple's vision and turn it into reality.  We work together to incorporate the personal style and character of the couple to create a wedding styled specifically for them…a wedding unlike any other.  By simplifying the planning process for the couple, I can help the bride and groom look forward to their special day without worrying about how they will get there!

I know that my clients - these hopeful brides and grooms - are the most important part of the wedding.  Nothing is more satisfying than making sure their wants and needs are met in such a way that they are able to enjoy their own wedding as though they themselves were guests.  So whether it is Full Service or Day Of Coordination, my goal is to exceed every expectation.
