Last week I shared some fun facts about myself, and now it's our Associate Planner, Niki's turn! Niki has been with Clover Events for over a year now and brings so much to the team! She's cool as a cucumber on wedding days and always has a smile on her face. You can often find her in the back of the room grooving to the music while the couple dances with their guests!
Before she took the jump into planning weddings and events, she had a flourishing makeup business. In Niki's words, "My other love (makeup) took me into the wedding industry. Many times I've experienced brides without a Wedding Coordinator and unhelpful family/friends and I wanted to be there to help her with more than just makeup. The idea of wedding planning had always been a lingering idea and I put the idea into motion after meeting a wonderful mentor in the industry. I have really enjoyed being a part of the other side of the wedding day and having the opportunity to get to know clients on a deeper level. It has brought me so many new and rewarding experiences that continue to excite me for future events to come."
Ok, on with the fun facts about Niki!
ONE: I have done bridal makeup professionally for 10 years. (I was always good at art and painting and discovered at a young age that I was very good at painting faces, too!)
TWO: I never, ever liked working out, but discovered Barre last year and look forward to it every week.
THREE: I am "double-jointed." I can twist both arms around in almost a complete circle. (It's my party trick!)
FOUR: My sister and I are the first in our family to be born in the US (in New Jersey to be exact).
FIVE: I was in a Macedonian Folklore dance group until I was 15 and traveled the US performing.
SIX: I taught gymnastics to kindergartners when I was in grade school.
SEVEN: I am fascinated by horoscope readings and psychic abilities. (I'm a Cancer and we are known to be highly imaginative, sympathetic, & persuasive. I agree!)
EIGHT: I need everything in my living space to always be clean, orderly and symmetrical (a crooked picture will drive me nuts!)
NINE: My happy place is drinking coffee at an eclectic cafe or beautiful outdoor patio.
TEN: I would eat Mediterranean-type food everyday if I could (just no seafood!)
So there you have it! If you haven't had the opportunity to meet Niki at an event, I hope you get the chance soon! I just know you'll adore her as much as I do.
I'm super excited to announce that she will be taking over the Clover Events Instagram account for the next week! Hope you enjoy hearing about the events we've done from her perspective!
