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!). Read less

I wanted to take a moment to respond to your review which is significantly below our other reviews. First, Gianna no longer works with us due to various complaints and issues but I know you have a personal relationship with her. I believe your father referred to Gianna's initial design of your invite as "something a 4th grader could do". Lorraine then stepped in to create something in line with the quality we expect at anna soiree. Gianna parted ways without notice during the course of your order. I realize that your relationship with Gianna is the reason the scores are lower than we normally receive - I'm sure she thinks this is a way to hurt my business. Just wanted to clear up who really ended up creating your beautiful invitations and highlight the reasons for a 3.8 vs our normal average.

Anna Soiree provided our wedding invitations and did an amazing job. The staff really helped us design an invitation that was specific to our wedding and incorporated all aspects that we wanted to convey. The production time and accuracy was incredible. I would highly recommend Anna Soiree for any invitation needs.

Not only were our invitations not delivered properly the customer service was terrible once we found out some of our guests did not receive there invitations that were mailed exclusively by Anna soirée. When asked about the discrepancy we were told that they were not responsible for the USPS. Sucks that we dealt with them from the beginning.

Hi David,
We worked very hard to custom create your invitations and assembled them with care. We take pride in everything we do. I mailed them personally and put the stamps on and handed them to the postal worker in Oakhurst. We also utilized Avery shipping labels (rather than the ones we order from our stationary manufacturers) to insure that they were of shipping quality since they were on the outer cardboard carton. Unfortunately, once they leave our hands, we have no control over what happens in the mail. I do apologize on behalf of the post office and would be happy to resend any that are returned at my cost ($4.00 per box) even though this is outside of my responsibility. We always give 110% to every order and this is incredibly upsetting to us.
We hope you can see that we did everything on our end as requested from custom designing your invites to carefully assembling them and then shipping them out on time.

Anna Soiree did our invitations, programs, menus and seating scroll. We also rented a beautiful card holder bird cage from them and purchased my wedding day earrings from their boutique. I can't say enough about how great the ladies were! Nicole, Lorraine and Johnna were so helpful and eager to go above and beyond! They did impeccable work and the invitations were the perfect start to our wedding experience! xoxo

I could not say anything bad about this place! They made the whole experience of picking out wedding invites fun and stress free. While reasonably priced and time sensitive, I didn't have to worry about anything not being sent out on time. The staff was friendly, accommodating and extremely fun to work with!

I did both my shower and wedding invitations at Anna Soiree. I was very pleased with the quality and value of our invites. Everyone loved them. The staff is fun and very creative. They have a ton of stuff in their store, it was very addicting to walk around in there! The only thing that I would watch is spelling errors, we had to make a few corrections. Also, sometimes the responsiveness through phone was not great but they do respond quickly to email. Overall, I would use their service again and have made recommendations to other brides.

The ladies at Anna Soiree were extremely helpful with every detail of my wedding. They went above and beyond throughout the whole planning process from helping with save-the-dates and invitations to handling last minute issues at the church on my wedding day. The were easily accessible and extremely flexible with last minute changes. I could not have pulled everything together without them. I would highly recommend using their services, they are the best women to work with!!

I don't know where to begin with the ladies of Anna Soiree, they are simply amazing!!! Anna Soiree was my day of coordinator, provided all of the stationary, and just about anything else that was seen at my wedding! They are extremely patient, I should know because I called Lorraine almost everyday:) When it comes to creativity, they have it!! I'm not that creative so when I was stuck on what to do next or how something looked, they were always there to give advice or come up with a simple saying! Nicole and Gianna were there the day of my wedding and I can honestly say I wasn't nervous at all because they took care of EVERYTHING, from fixing my dress countless times throughout the night to moving chairs/place settings around when one of my guests decided she was going to come at the last minute! I can't thank you ladies enough for all that you've done!!!
