At a young age, Annie knew she was an entrepreneur but hadn’t yet uncovered her calling for the events and wedding industries. Annie was very close with her grandmother and was inspired by her hard work and passion as a large-scale event planner for socialites in New Jersey.
Throughout her life, Annie was a dancer and used this talent to choreograph quinceañeras. From there, she made and created connections with dozens of vendors and her events career began to blossom behind the booth as an MC, choreographer, and Day of Coordinator at these parties! But her talents didn’t stop there, she soon began planning these lavish birthday parties and even landed a position in corporate events.
During her time in corporate events, Annie had the opportunity to plan large-scale events for prominent companies like Hershey’s, Ellen DeGeneres, and General Mills. Because of her attention to detail and natural ability to create a one-of-a-kind event, clients started asking her to plan their personal events like elegant quinceañera and even weddings. As Annie Nuño continued to receive more and more inquiries, she found herself excited and more interested in these opportunities.
She continued to work in corporate events, but it wasn’t until she had a mother call her to plan her daughter’s wedding because she planned another daughter’s quinceañera that Annie knew she had a new calling. Annie then decided to take a leap of faith that was coupled with trust from clients, confidence in herself, and the support from her husband that she opened Soirée Co. in June 2009.
