“When you need to outsource a full event, ShimmerNYC is the
  place to go!” 
- Dina A., DMC, PE

Iconic New York City wedding

Simply the Best! Shimmer helped us plan the most beautiful, iconic New York wedding. She facilitated everything, and had great resources, while supporting our vision for the event. Such a pleasure to work with!

New York City Bar Mitzvah

My son's bar mitzvah was perfect thanks to Shimmers attention to detail. Best of all, I was able to enjoy the day because I knew Shimmer was there to manage any issues (but there weren't any because they planned it so expertly!).

Manhattan B'nai Mitzvah

Wow.! Nancy and the Shimmer team truly made our twin's B’nai mitzvah celebration more special than we ever could have imagined. From her ideas, to her planning, to her ability to pivot seamlessly (thank you, covid), she kept our family and our vendors on the same page, organized, and happy!! And she did it all with a smile! Truly, Nancy is a gem. Professional. Personable. Talented. Knowledgeable. The complete package. We feel both lucky and grateful to have found her and look forward to Shimmer's help with more fabulous events to come.

Multiple Events

It was such a pleasure working with Nancy and ShimmerNYC. Nancy has great ideas and fabulous taste and was able to execute exactly the type of party we wanted. She also is unflappable. We started working together on my son's bar mitzvah, which we had to postpone twice because of Covid. Nancy handled everything related to rescheduling and made a stressful situation easy. We also worked with Nancy on our older son's high school graduation party. It was a completely different type of event and Nancy aced it. I highly recommend ShimmerNYC.

Manhattan Bar Mitzvah

Nancy and her team helped make my son’s Bar Mitzvah so incredibly special and memorable. The party was flawless and so much fun for our guests of all ages. The day exceeded my expectations. I will be calling her again soon for my other kids’ mitzvahs!

We just hosted our second Mitzvah with Nancy. Our decision to use her for a second time speaks for itself. Nancy is amazing! She works with many discerning clientele. Nancy is proactive and efficient. She'll keep your event on track, aim to get everything done with time to spare and take your budget very seriously (she won't go over). Happy to be a reference.

Sandy - Tribeca

Loft Mitzvah

Nancy made my son's dream Bar Mitzvah possible. It was everything he asked for and then some. I cannot imagine a more memorable and unique party. Everyone, teens, younger children, adults of all ages, had a great time.


Nancy embodies the perfect blend of extremely organized, transparent, professional and resourceful party planner. She gracefully and perfectly handled every custom request I had.


Thank you Nancy for making magic happen: an extraordinary memory for a major milestone.

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE Nancy!! We planned my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah during the pandemic, and had to postpone our event due to a surge in Covid cases. The rescheduling of the event was seamless, thanks to Nancy!!!

She offered great guidance on everything from swag to entertainment, and made sure to set us up with everything we needed for a beautiful party.

It was, without a doubt, one of the most magical nights of our lives, and we couldn’t have made such a fabulous party without Nancy!!! I can’t wait to have her help plan my son’s Bar Mitzvah in a few years!! :)

Rooftop Bat Mitzvah

My husband and I are still pinching ourselves that we were able to give our daughter a festive, warm and celebratory Bat Mitzvah- all with a pandemic lurking in the background—and there is no way we could have done that without Nancy.  She is organized, a fantastic problem solver and has a variety of reliable and expert vendors that she brings into the planning process.  She is undaunted by tons of moving parts -including this client changing her mind several times!  On the day of, Nancy watched over the set up and preparations like a hawk and was the go between with all the vendors-  she took that burden off our shoulders and we were able to fully enjoy a spectacular day with our family and friends.

Wedding in Brooklyn

I have been to numerous ShimmerNYC events. Whether it was a corporate event, a bar/bat mitzvah, a destination birthday weekend (complete with many mini events/parties), or a wedding they have all been A++. I recently hired ShimmerNYC To help plan my own wedding. They are so organized, calm, and easy to work with. I could not have been happier with the way the event turned out and with the entire ShimmerNYC experience!

Post COVID Bar Mitzvah

As you can imagine planning a Bar Mitzvah with the ups and downs of COVID was not fun. Shimmer was the only reason I didn't lose my mind. They stayed on top of what needed to be done even as all the rules and dates and everything was changing, which was constantly. On our family's special night all the planning and hard work turned into a flawless event enjoyed by all. Shimmer was a joy to work with through the whole process. Grace under fire sums it up!

Marie - UES

Tented Wedding in CT

Shimmer is the best! Our original wedding was a destination wedding. We finally had our wedding last month after two Covid reschedules AND a change of venues, and through it all they were amazing. They essentially planned THREE weddings for us. They are incredibly detail oriented, very responsive and so easy to work with. I recommend them 10/10 for anyone planning any type of party or event!

Virtual Corporate Holiday Party


Nancy Hoehler of ShimmerNYC was an amazing  partner to work with in planning our first ever Zoom holiday party. Our company has 175 employees now working from home all across the country and she helped us organize a seamless and fun event, including a wine and cheese gift box sent to all through Feast on History, a lively and raucous trivia contest,  an incredible and interactive mentalist, and a virtual photo booth. 


Feedback from our colleagues at every level was excellent and they are still talking about it! People were engaged and participated throughout the two-hour event -  even wore fancy costume attire (and pants!).  We would highly recommend working with Nancy  and would be happy to speak with anyone who would like more details.

Corporate Holiday Party

As the responsible person to plan our corporate holiday party for ~100 individuals, I was looking to fully outsource the process. I engaged SHIMMER NYC to plan and execute our party. With a wide range of professionals coming in from various states, Nancy and team made the process stress-free by handing the entire process from start to finish.  Location selection was ideal and this was critical as there was a significant rain storm that evening!! Nancy ensured all dietary matters were considered when suggesting food selection and the décor was fabulous!

When you need to outsource the full event – SHIMMER NYC is the place to go. Once Nancy had a feel for the company and what we were looking for her execution on getting it done was flawless (and within budget!).

HUGE thank you!! Until next year….

NYC Wedding

Nancy just planned our wedding and rehearsal dinner. To say that everything was perfect is an understatement.  We had the best venue, unbelievable food, amazing music and incredible flowers. She made it all come together seamlessly.


She managed the logistics, sourced the vendors, made sure the budget was updated and that we paid everyone on time. She kept two very busy professionals on track so that we got everything done that she couldn’t do for us (guest list, dance lessons). In addition, she is friendly and fun and got along with everyone. That said she didn’t take spending our money lightly and wasn’t a pushover, she made sure our interests were always first.


We need to think of another party so we can use her to plan it.

Bar Mitzvah (during Covid)

ShimmerNYC is literally ultimate angel to have in your corner.  During Covid, she moved heaven and earth to get my son’s bar mitzvah moved when the world was in total chaos - seemingly out of the blue on March13th. I will never forget that day. She worked her magic and moved countless different entities onto what we expected to be the perfect day in the fall, 2020. And then when the unthinkable happened, she worked miracles yet again to move it into the spring of 2021! Through it all Nancy was pro-active, organized, detail oriented and most of all successful in getting everything I wanted. Several friends that had said “oh why bother with a planner, you can do it on your own” came to me saying how lucky I was to have Nancy on board. Never plan a party or event without her.

Corporate Party

Thanks Shimmer for doing such a great job with my corporate party event. You made the experience so pleasant and easy. From initial planning, to your creative thinking, to flawless execution the day of the event. So pleased! You went above and beyond my expectations.

Bat Mitzvah

I could not recommend ShimmerNYC more highly as an event planner!  I called them when my daughter's Bat Mitzvah was suddenly moved up 5 months asking for her help, and they were cool, calm and confident that we would be able to get everything done and done well.  She attended to every little detail, had lots of suggestions and kept me on a schedule so that things didn't pile up at the end.  She was there for me whenever I started to get nervous and always calmed me down.  She was incredibly responsive and was available whenever I needed her.  Having her there day-of took such a load off my mind, as I felt 100% confident that everything would be done well.  Any glitch that came up, she quickly handled.  She allowed me to be a guest at my party and enjoy myself. And we had a beautiful party that was everything we had wanted.  I also heard from the vendors that we used that she was a pleasure to work with.

Destination Party

Shimmer is the best party planner I could ever imagine! Shimmer took care of everything I needed in order to throw my husband a 50th Birthday party in Jamaica. Planning a destination event far away from home is not easy, but Shimmer made it feel like all I had to do was show-up. They managed all the early correspondence with the hotel personnel and all the local vendors and set up a weekend of events that made the party exactly what we wanted it to be.  I could enjoy the whole thing because Shimmer was there. They made sure every detail was perfect— And it was! Everything was seamless, and everybody had the time of their lives! Shimmer is excellent at getting what people want and executing it all perfectly.


I would whole-heartily recommend Shimmer for any kind of event anywhere in the world!

Bat Mitzvah

Our deep thanks to ShimmerNYC and Nancy for the most glorious bat mitzvah party for our daughter.  It was a perfect evening and Shimmer helped us every step of the way.  Nancy's patience, advice and knowledge regarding vendor selection, including invitations, venue, room decor, food and cake selection, photography and entertainment, were invaluable.  She helped us budget each step of the way, held routine calls with us, and consistently provided updated timelines so that we never missed a step.  Most importantly she provided emotional support throughout.  By the time the event rolled around, we were 100% prepared and didn't have to think about anything except enjoying ourselves.  Our guests were blown away by the event, calling it warm, breathtaking and flawless.  Our daughter declared it the most amazing night of her life.  What more could we ask!
