Let’s start with “dpnak”. Where does it come from? Easy: Danielle Pasternak. Pronounced: dee-pee-nack. Better now?
Now for the mushy stuff: When I was a little girl, I would dress up my grandparent’s and have them play ‘wedding’. I remember clipping a white rag to my grandmother’s head, making her a bouquet out of napkins and lining an aisle with stuffed animals. I would make sure every detail was ‘just right’, hit play on my little purple cassette player and direct the entire wedding. Then, I would have them go back and do it all over again. By my count, my grandparents were not only married for more than 50 years, but at least 147 times.
As a NEPA-native, I am honored to be growing and building my business and passion in this area. Being a former dancer, I’m able to take my extensive theater and production knowledge and apply it to what I truly love and respect: weddings.
I’m currently a member of POWER Scranton, TWIPS (an international twitter community of wedding professionals) and other online communities, as well as serving as a board member for the Scranton Civic Ballet Company (a non-profit organization).
Besides weddings, I love spending time with my family and my pup, Mollie in my oh-so-tiny apartment. I also have an unhealthy love for bread, Macs, soup, Harry Potter, organizing and anything with a ruffle.
