Introduction: Hi, I'm Ikiya, owner of Intimate Occasions By Ikiya!

I specialize in planning, designing, and coordinating intimate weddings. With 5 years of experience, my own Google Drive business portal, and a streamlined planning process, I'm the intimate wedding expert that will handle the stressful parts, so you don't have to and guide you through your planning journey. I love the love that surrounds an intimate wedding, it's so heartwarming! Seeing a couple celebrate their love with their closest family and friends is beautiful and it is an honor to be a part of it. I'd love to help you create and celebrate your big day and give you an unforgettable wedding experience.

Initially, I was one of those brides that was determined to do it all by herself. But in the last month leading up to my wedding I decided to find myself some help. A friend of mine who works in the wedding industry recommended Ikiya to me, and it ended up being the best decision I made (aside from marrying my husband). Ikiya is a miracle worker! She coordinated everything with all of my vendors and my family seamlessly, and it truly felt like she made miracles happen. By the end of the night my sister could not stop singing Ikiya's praises, and was in awe of all that Ikiya had done. My advice to any bride since has been: "If you're even considering getting a wedding coordinator, do it! And if you're in the NYC area make sure you work with Ikiya!"

Ikiya was EXCEPTIONAL from beginning to end. We hired her as a month of coordinator and she truly made a huge impact in the success of our event. We had planned and secured most of our vendors but Ikiya still provided a much needed organizational piece to our planning that we would not have been able to accomplish alone. She met with us weekly to ensure all aspects of the wedding were in order. She went above and beyond to ensure that we did not have to worry about behind the scenes logistics on our big day. We are deeply grateful for her positive energy, great spirit and efficiency throughout the last month of planning.

Ikiya has become one of my favorite wedding vendors as she displays eagerness, excitement and above all else beautiful design execution. I particularly enjoyed her attention to details, timeline and above all else concern for her clients. She's truly genuine caring and sweet. I would recommend Intimate Occasions By Ikiya for your special events.

Ikiya was a fantastic coordinator and everyone loved her. From day one she was energetic and optimistic, which was a stark contrast to my generally pessimistic and anxious nature. We hired her as a month of coordinator as we had figured out most of the puzzle pieces ourselves, but Ikiya executed l our dreams flawlessly. She’s very personable and we have multiple guests rave about her. She was invaluable on the day and I couldn’t imagine doing it without her. Also, shoutout to her assistants who were wonderful and lovely to talk to.

Ikiya save us this past weekend and demonstrated such a willing attitude and professionalism. I am happy she came on board to assist us in a big wedding on short notice. Also she had original ideas to make the job easier and flawless. Hope to work on more events together in the near future.
