Best wedding planner ever!
Omg you can NOT GO WRONG with using Dana as your wedding planner! She’s so cool and will literally do anything and everything to make sure your day goes just as perfect as you want! Mandy and I really don’t have time with our hectic lives and busy schedules to deal with any of this so we may be a rarity that we put the ball in her court for the entire time with literally everything. All we were a part of was picking the big things such as the Dj, photographer, venue (which she recommended and it was perfect) and where we got our food catered from which she recommended as well! Our day couldn’t have gone anymore smoothly. She picked our cake to the decorations to even surprising us with these really cool chandeliers in the trees as we got married outside! She made sure we had a butler all night with us! The flower arrangements were so beautiful. Mandy and I are for sure a rarity as most brides are controlling or bridezilla’s and don’t allow the planner to have all of the control but we put our trust in Dana and she exceeded our expectations! Dana also did my brothers wedding as well and did an amazing job with his so that’s how I knew about her. She is funny, a good time, personable, flexible, creative and basically anything you would want in a planner. She’s just perfect, I could literally go on and on about how amazing and talented she is at what she does! So, what are you waiting for? Reach out to her I promise you will not be disappointed! Mandy and I love you and we will be using you to plan our events in the future as she does not only do weddings! XoxoSent on 03/31/2019

Dana was truly a God send during the entirety of the wedding process. i'm currently working full time and in grad school, so planning a wedding on top of that felt overwhelming but Dana made everything so much easier. From dealing with a caterer that fell through and recommending another one that ended up having much better food, to helping us to find the most amazing seamstress for my dress, Dana was truly wonderful. But, as amazing as she was throughout the planning process, where Dana really shone was during the rehearsal and ceremony/reception. She kept my (very large!) wedding party on task during the rehearsal, did an amazing job decorating the reception,stepped up when we needed another pair of hands at the bar, helped to bustle my ridiculously long dress, and even washed dishes at the end of the night, along with all the other tasks involved with making sure a wedding runs smoothly and on schedule. On top of all this Dana is just a nice and personable person and you feel like you are working with a friend, not an impersonal professional. Thank you so much, Dana!Sent on 06/18/2018

Dana is fantastic, with so many different vendors involved with a wedding sometimes thingsSent on 06/19/2018
don’t go as smoothly as you hope they will. Dana stepped up and took care of everything,any problems she immediately resolved them. Dana was always available to answer any questions.
Working with Dana was like planning my daughter’s wedding with a friend, she genuinely wanted to make the wedding perfect and she more than succeeded.
Dana is very professional and personable and makes your event flow smoothly from start to finish!
Dana is hands down amazing! Not only have we worked with her on my weddings that she designed and coordinated, but also personally used Dana's services for a family birthday party. From beginning to end, Dana was super hands on, sending many ideas and inspiration photos for our event, as well as offer above and beyond what she was hired for. The weddings we've worked with her on were magical and had well thought out details planned and coordination that made each event run smoothly. Hire her! She's fantastic!
I have worked with Dana she very sweet and super friendly. Dana does an amazing job and goes above and beyond for each Bride to make sure everyone one is happy and things run smoothly & she truly cares for them. I highly recommend working with her for your special event.
