Nicole started Pétillante Weddings to help English-speaking couples. She saw the difficulties they faced, not only with planning a French destination wedding from around the world, but also because of confusion around French wedding industry norms.
PLAN YOUR DREAM DAY
Beginning her wedding career with 5 years of experience at a vineyard wedding venue in Bordeaux, Nicole developed deep knowledge of Bordeaux wines, French cuisine, and tourist activities. After 10 years of planning weddings, she has close relationships with some of the best, most genuine suppliers in the area.
