“So Artem and I, the other night, we sat on the couch and we talked about this. I was like, ‘Do you want to start planning now?’” Nikki said, revealing that they have called a few venues. “We’d love it to be in the fall and a few of the venues were like, ‘We’re available.’”

“And what we just started saying is, ‘We’re so busy every day, and we completely remodeled the inside of her home,” she continued. “We haven’t even lived in it yet and we’re doing the outside and that takes so much work. We’re still not even done designing.

Nikki added, “And so he and I both were just like, ‘Let’s get through the house. If it happens, it happens.’”

Nikki and Artem announced they were engaged in January 2020 after over a year of dating. They are parents to 10-month-old son Matteo.

Also in the interview, Nikki mentioned that it’s been “hard” discussing wedding plans with her family.

“My Nana’s like, ‘Just go do something small,’ but I want a really big bash, and I want to do it right,” Nikki explained. “I want it to be where it’s a fun experience and a journey, where it’s just a lot of fun. Maybe we’re making trips to New York for dresses!”

“I feel like if I was to do it right now, and try to get the fall that I want right now, it would just be cramming,” she continued. “It wouldn’t be fun, it would be just to get it done. So as of now, we have no plans, no day.”
