About anna soirée

Nicole Chambers has had a love for boutiques from her early childhood. With her best friend, they created a retail store in her bedroom for playtime. Bringing her childhood dreams to life, Nicole opened anna Soirée in Oakhurst’s Towne Center. Focused on life’s special occasions, anna soiree has an eclectic collection of items – from invitations to designer handbags – if Nicole likes it, it’s sold in the store.

Nicole’s business education commenced at the College of Charleston where she received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Marketing. She also holds a Masters in Business Administration from Monmouth University. After graduating, Nicole worked at various agencies in New York/New Jersey handling the market research, advertising, corporate event planning and marketing for pharmaceutical companies. She also taught management and marketing classes to undergraduate students at Monmouth University for 3 years.

Using her business acumen, Nicole operated a small section of her sister’s store in Pier Village for wedding invitations. She quickly outgrew the space and opened anna soiree in 2007. Along with her talented staff, she has been helping brides to plan the perfect wedding day as a wedding planner. Nicole negotiates contracts with vendors and plans everything to the last little detail including a detailed minute by minute itinerary for the bridal party. With over 50 weddings under her belt, Nicole is well-equipped to deal with every situation (and yes…she’s had wedding crashers!).
