A little bit about Nicole: I’m not only an energetic event planner, but a seasoned expert in venue and event management, decor and design background, and planning partnerships with both Kismet Events and Lasting Impressions Weddings. I began my trail in the event world by managing events at one of the top venues in Minneapolis, Aria La Jeune Lune. Which was awarded Top 15 Wedding Venues in America by Brides Magazine. As I continued in my management role, I became the Lead of Events at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, while also starting Nikki Hill Events, and also helping introduce the venue to larger scale Weddings & Events. I came to create a company with a team of extreme talent called, We Are Activ. As the Founder and CEO of ActivExperience. I execute everything and anything from weddings, (destination and local), to corporate holdings, bridal showers, promotions events, and more. My clients love my calm demeanor, ingenious ideas, and my ability to bring any vision to life. Whether it’s a dinner for two or a big blowout for thousands, me and the team have a knack for making our clients’ dreams come true.
