MEET oniki

My name is Oniki Hardtman, founder & Creative Director of Oh Niki Occasions, which I founded in late 2015.  Prior to launching my own business, I worked for some of the most recognized fashion brands in the world, holding various senior roles in Design, Merchandising, and Brand Management for nearly 20 years. On weekends that I was not managing the design process with factories in Asia, pitching new design concepts to major retailers throughout the US, or finding the latest trends in Europe for my full time fashion position, I spent my "free time" by doing Wedding Coordination with one of NJ's most renowned wedding planning firms because I have ALWAYS loved it so much!

With a desire to create beautiful experiences and spark joy for my own clients, I became a Certified Wedding Planner and founded Oh Niki Occasions to offer my unique set of skills in planning and designing weddings and events with a penchant for the details - "Head to Toe, Start to Finish." Nothing beats being able to draw from my passions for design, world travel, and exciting experiences to lend my well trained eye for refined & elegant style to YOU!   I want to make every single detail of your wedding or special event beautiful and memorable-beyond what you imagined!  Planning a wedding that is full of unexpected and unforgettable detail is extremely time consuming if you do not readily have all the relationships and resources that we have established over the years.  Whether its a destination wedding or destination-inspired and closer to home, we would be thrilled to help plan it with you!  Contact us today so we can talk about your vision for your wedding day or special celebration!


Oh Niki Occasions has offices in South Florida & The Greater NYC Area.
We are a Full Service Destination Wedding Planning & Event Design firm offering a wide range of services which are tailored to the needs of our individual clients.  With our education, expertise, & discernment, we are likely to be the first and only call you make if you are seeking an absolutely exquisite outcome for your event with a more effortless approach to planning than the amount of time it would take to research and plan on your own.

When I met Niki, we connected instantly. She loves what she does and really cares about the couple she is working with. We hired her as a partial planner and she never missed a beat. We started with monthly calls and then weekly calls as we got closer to the wedding.  However, we were emailing almost everyday and she was always responsive.

Where do I begin! Oniki made the entire wedding planning process so smooth for my wife and I. As we were planning a destination wedding, my biggest concern was my wife being stressed/overwhelmed.  Oniki was able to provide so much guidance, insight and recommendations which alleviated any stress for my wife and ultimately my concerns. Her attention to detail and determination to ensure that our day truly turned out the way we wanted was incredible. She is amazing and special and will be hold a place in our hearts forever.

the care and attention she provided during the entire process was pricelesS."

Niki and her staff were professional and left me stress free every time I would call, text or email. She does an unbelievable job listening to your vision and making it come to life! I would not change a single thing about my wedding process because of Oh Niki Occasions. She pointed me in the right direction, gave me options and executed my vision better than what I could ever imagine. I would recommend Oh Niki Occasions to anyone-
she was first class from start to finish.

Oniki went above and beyond as far as putting my mind at ease. She handled every situation with professionalism and efficiency, and allowed my wife and I to remain at ease at all times. She was literally Olivia Pope (I call her Oniki Pope now). Our wedding was a destination wedding in Orlando, and we live in Bermuda. We had two days to meet with vendors and visit the venue. Oniki met us in Orlando, picked us up from the airport, and had our schedule mapped out to the minute. On the day, her staff was just as professional, which speaks to the standard she has set for her business. I would hire her to plan any event. She is definitely worth every penny.

She was literally Olivia Pope."

"If The Knot allowed 6 stars,
I would give Oniki 6 stars.

Oniki was absolutely amazing! She was willing to take on any responsibility that needed to be taken care of and was incredibly prompt when returning emails or calls. Her vendor suggestions were stellar, I was very late on choosing my favors and preparing my welcome bags for the guests, she put everything together and made sure everything was there the day of! Oniki and her team coordinated every step of the day and it turned out absolutely amazing. Any hiccups that occurred during the day she handled perfectly and I was able to completely enjoy the day with no stress. It was the best decision I made for my wedding hands down. I would recommend Oniki and her team to anyone that wants an organized, beautiful and stress free day.

I work full-time and was planning a wedding in NYC and I was so incredibly overwhelmed.

"I found Oniki a few months before my wedding and she was a lifesaver!!

Oniki was more than helpful in every way."

Oniki saved the day! After several failed attempts of trying to book a block of hotel rooms on my own, Oniki was able to quickly obtain a block of rooms for our wedding guests. Majority of our wedding guests were traveling from out of town and needed a place to stay. I reached out for help and Oniki was able to lock in my block of rooms very quickly. Oniki provided excellent service. Thank you again!!

Oniki has been a valued volunteer for our nonprofit organization and had helped to organize the annual gala for many years. This year we brought Oh Niki Occasions on full-time to conceptualize, plan and execute the event for 400 guests. The night was spectacular, well organized and perfectly orchestrated thanks to Oniki and her team's leadership, eye for detail and organization. Oniki was a pleasure to work with and was clearly invested in her work, as well as, our organization's goals. I would highly recommend Oh Niki Occasions for any special event.

Working with Oniki was nothing short of amazing. Every bride dreams of having a day that is executed to a "t" and not having to worry about a single detail. That's EXACTLY what we had. I know that Oniki had it handled throughout our entire process, but on the actual day of our wedding it was more than handled. She ensured that every person involved in our day knew exactly what to do, where to be, and had everything they needed - from our guests to every last vendor. Our bridal party, family, and friends all said that our wedding was phenomenal and seamless; we owe that to Oniki.

exceeded my expectations!"

The decor was sensory overload - opulent, regal, luxurious. Everything felt grand and royal and was a perfect match for the couple. As a member of the bridal party, I love and really appreciated that Oniki surprised us with gifts along the way that were such thoughtful and essential items for a great wedding weekend. This was definitely one of THE best weddings I have ever been to. It’s a memory that I’ll cherish forever!

with so much loving attention

I don't even know where to begin in describing how grateful we are for Oniki Cole and Oh Niki Occasions. I had been deliberating between a couple of coordinators, but from the moment I met with Oniki I knew she was the right fit. We hired Oniki as our month-of coordinator and we were not disappointed. Although we hired Oniki just for the month leading up to the wedding, we contracted with her well in advance and she was there for us every step of the way. Oniki was always available to bounce ideas off of and help soothe frustrations and nerves. As a recent bride herself, she completely understands the ups and downs of being a bride and I felt 100% supported through the entire planning process. 

The day of our wedding could not have gone any smoother. Oniki and her team went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. It was the perfect day and Oniki was a major reason for that. Oniki and her team were professional and attentive. She made our day unforgettable. Thank you!

Our wedding day was a beautiful, stress free celebration and we owe a large portion of that to Oniki. She picked up on our style right away and was able to execute our vision seamlessly. She was always available for phone calls and emails as needed and was so accommodating to our busy schedules. When our transportation plans fell through at the last minute, she was able to communicate with our vendor and make it all work out. What I appreciated the most was that Oniki genuinely loved what she was doing and had our best interests at heart. We couldn't have asked for more than that. So whether you're in the Jersey area or halfway across the country like we were, I wholeheartedly recommend working with Oniki and her team for an unforgettable wedding day, head to toe start to finish!


and Oniki put our minds at ease to ensure that every detail was perfect for our day."

Oh Niki Occasions planned, designed, and coordinated our Tenth Wedding Anniversary Celebration. From our first meeting, I knew that our event was going to be AMAZING. Oniki was with us through the entire journey - assisting us with the theme of the celebration, securing a wonderful venue that met our style, recommending great vendors, and adding those thoughtful details and finishing touches that make an event beautiful. Oniki is easy to work with and is a consummate professional. She assisted us with vendor negotiations which allowed us to stay within our budget. That makes all the difference. When you have an event, you are always nervous about certain aspects and Oniki is there to provide great advice and talk you off the edge when you need it. Our guests had the best time! The complimented the venue, the DJ, the linens on the table - EVERYTHING! We were so pleased - it was everything we asked for. When we have another celebration, the first call that I will make is to Oh Niki Occasions!

"Our guests had the best time!

It was everything we asked for."
