From our first conversation, our experience with d. Royal engagements was amazing. My wife and I both felt completely comfortable and at ease. It was as if we'd known each other for years. But of course we didn't, so we had learn each other, and work together and she turned our admittedly unsure vision into a wedding better than we could even imagine. Nothing goes perfectly and we didn't expect that, but Denise, (and on our wedding day, her staff too) was there to solve any problem (such as me forgetting the marriage license at the hotel) or present creative alternatives to help us reach our ultimate goal. We really couldn't have been happier with the service, communication, professionalism and overall experience provided by d. Royal engagements! Denise and her entire staff are amazing! There are not enough words to fully express our gratitude!Sent on 04/29/2017

The Royal Treatment!
We honestly couldn’t have pulled off our wedding without Denise! In the beginning, we had ideas but no direction. Denise managed to help us refine our ideas and really helped us create the #crazyrichasianwedding experience. Never once as a bride did I panic when I knew that Denise was around because she was so connected and had everything under control. She was always available to us whenever we had questions or rather questionable ideas (from my now husband). She respected our cultural traditions and did such a great job helping us really highlight them.Sent on 12/15/2018
When it came to our wedding day, my husband and I really felt like we were royalty. As opposed to us having to handle vendors and directing guests, Denise and her team took charge of that task so we can actually eat the food at our wedding and enjoy ourselves.
It was truly a night that we will never forget and we can never thank her and her team enough for making our day so special! Everyone is STILL talking about the wedding and were even asking who our wedding planner was!!!

Denise at d.Royal Engagements will give you a wedding better than you could have ever imagined!
If you want the wedding of your dreams, work with Denise and her team at d.Royal Engagements. You will be so taken care of, you will have the most personalized and tailored service, and, as a HUGE bonus, you will get to plan your wedding with hilarious, sweet, and kind Denise. PLEASE benefit from the extensive research, vetting, phone interviews, etc etc etc that I already did and that all led me to Denise!! Our beautiful, seamless, dream wedding was three months ago, and it still feels impossible to try to put into words how grateful we are to her.Sent on 01/05/2019
We worked with Denise to plan our multi-day, blended Hindu/Christian destination wedding in the Bay Area. We live on the east coast and our parents are in the midwest and the south, so we really relied on Denise to be our major point of contact and coordination in every way. To add to the distance, we also had three separate events at two locations: our Friday night Sangeet/Mehndi was at a hotel venue (where all of our guests were staying), our Saturday morning wedding ceremony was at a vineyard about 45 minutes from the hotel, and finally our Saturday night reception was back at the hotel. If that sounds complicated, it's because it was! I promise you - nothing is too much or too complicated for Denise.
First, Denise put together the very best vendor team for us and for our wedding. Her recommendation is all you need, and it's impossible to overstate how comforting and how much time you will save when you know that you can trust your wedding planner implicitly. Denise is honest about each vendor's strengths and their weaknesses - even the ones she loves and works with all of the time. In the end, Denise matched us with the absolute best people for our specific vision (not just a cookie cutter wedding) - drawing on her extensive experience, contacts, and instinct. We really feel like we had the best of the best for EVERYTHING - food, decor, flowers, music, mehndi, hair/makeup, photography, videography, etc.
Second, because we all live out of town, we had to get a lot done during the few times we were able to visit San Francisco leading up to the wedding. Denise put together amazing and efficient power-planning weekends. She maximized the number of vendors we were able to meet with and ensured we left town with all of the information we needed. It is hard to imagine planning a destination wedding without Denise’s organizational prowess.
Third, Denise did so much more than help us plan our wedding in the weeks and months leading up to the big day. She was also a coordinator to make sure all of the wedding components came together seamlessly during the weekend itself. From making detailed schedules with vendors to make sure they were set up when they needed to be, to running all over town to pick up last minute pieces of decor, wine, and cocktail ingredients, Denise took so much off our plate. We were able enjoy the events as they occurred, confident that Denise was running everything behind the scenes. As an example, our priest accidentally drove back to the city after our ceremony before signing our marriage license. Neither our parents nor we had any idea this had happened until weeks later. Denise had one of her assistants slip out, meet the priest, and get the license signed before anyone noticed it was missing. That is the kind of last-minute unforeseeable accident that could unduly stress out the bride and groom and their families on the day of the wedding. With Denise, you don’t have to worry about it! We can’t tell you how much our guests gushed about how smoothly everything went.
Fourth, because of the scale of our wedding, it was very important to us to get the best price possible for each aspect of the weekend. Denise doubled as a skilled negotiator in helping to get prices down whenever possible by leveraging her relationships with vendors and deep knowledge of what the market rates are. When Denise told us we had gotten the best deal possible, we knew it was true. And when Denise told us something or someone was worth splurging on (always with a recommendation for how to accommodate that in the budget), we trusted her opinion.
We could not have been more pleased with Denise and the role she played in making our wedding perfect. She has an eye for design, a talent for learning what her clients like and what they don’t like, an incredibly friendly disposition, and the strength of personality to bring together dozens of vendors, hundreds of guests, and a VERY type-A couple. We recommend Denise without reservation. We love and miss you Denise!!
