About DRValentine & Associates

D. R. Valentine & Associates, Inc. is the company of Diann Valentine who's dinner parties were featured in Essence Magazine and InStyle and sought-after by some of the biggest names in entertainment. Since opening doors at DRV, Valentine has brought to life a bride's dream day for Usher, Toni Braxton, Kelis and Nas, Boyz II Men crooner Shawn Stockman, Chante Moore and Kenny Lattimore, Major League Baseball's Gary Sheffield and NBA players Jimmy Jackson, Eric Williams and many more.

After giving wedding planning tips on "E! News Daily," "ABC's InStyle Celebrity Wedding Special," "Entertainment Tonight," "CNN," and "HGTV" as well as doing spreads in Brides Magazine, InStyle, USA Today and Essence, Valentine published her first book, Weddings, Valentine Style. The gorgeous, vibrantly colored coffee table book, which features the intricately beaded back of Kelis' stunning emerald and gold wedding dress on the cover, is a combination of beautiful pictorial essays, inspirational messages, and tips from the expert herself on how to achieve the wedding of one's dreams with the use of colors and modern expression while staying true to the traditions that each individual bride holds dear to her heart. With the success of Weddings, Valentine Style, Valentine is currently working on completing the series, this time around focusing on entertaining and interior design, specifically.

As if being a renowned event producer and designer sought after by top celebrities and publishing a book weren't enough, Valentine is set to host "Wedding Day," the newest lovechild of Mark Burnett, the mastermind behind the runaway hit series "Survivor" and "The Apprentice." Each episode of "Wedding Day" features Valentine and a team of dream makers, including famed food expert Alan Dunn, making the wedding day dreams of a deserving couple go from fantasy to reality. The show takes the wedding plans of the couple and throws limitations out the window as they seek good-hearted volunteers and tap into their creative craniums to really make the big day, truly magical. More importantly, in addition to giving a dream wedding, Valentine and crew are also changing lives by giving the couples a new start on life, whether it be donating a year-supply of food to students of a low-income neighborhood school where the bride teaches or funding a four-year college tuition for a groom who had to drop out of school to get a job to support his family. From dream day, to dream life, Valentine is making dreams, realities.

Outside of wedding, event and interior design, shooting a surefire hit show and making dreams come true, Valentine loves to travel (especially to Europe) and taking in all types of new arts, cultures and architecture from around the world. However, in her world, everything revolves around the love of her life, daughter Riann.

In the event world, Valentine is a genius. In wedding design, Valentine is one of the most sought after experts in the business. As an author, Valentine is mixing traditions and modern trends to change the game - one bride at a time. As the host of "Wedding Day," Valentine is a dream maker. And as a proud African American woman, Valentine is a pioneer. With many titles above her head, Valentine is just getting started.
