Hello there.

CHANCES ARE HIGH THAT WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A GREAT TIME WORKING TOGETHER IF YOU:
  • Want to have an amazing wedding, but also don’t want to break the bank doing it

  • Work really hard at your job/life and know there just aren’t enough hours in the day

  • Have an amazing Mom/friend/family member who wants to help, but is also starting to drive you a little crazy

  • Might be a little (or a lot) Type-A

  • Find satisfaction in checking things off of a list (you may even add something to it after you’ve done it, just so you can cross it off)

  • Think that wine and a good book might be the very best treat after a very long day

  • Dig Harry Potter (*see below for which house I’m in)

  • Really dig Pinterest and already have a wedding board packed with ideas

  • Love a walk through the woods but also appreciate a stroll through a bustling city

  • Believe in practical decisions based on logic, but also know when to follow your gut

“In the months leading up to our wedding, it was incredible to know that on our wedding day I would not have a single worry and we could 100% enjoy our most special day…and enjoy we did!”

Hi, I’m Danielle. 

The first question you may be asking is: “what the $*#% is DPNAK?!?”.

That’s easy. “DPNAK” is the shortened version of my full name: Danielle PasterNAK.
I pronounce it “dee-pee-nack”.
  • I began this company in 2009 after a 41-day cross-country road trip.
  • In 2016, I started co-hosting a podcast called Put A Ring On It, the anti-boring wedding planning podcast. You should really check it out.

  • I love to dance, but I’m truly the worst singer you’ve ever heard. (Just ask my shower)

  • I have a very healthy and insanely cool obsession with all-things Harry Potter. I’m a Hufflepuff/Thunderbird.

  • In 2015, I was named as one of the “Top 26 Most Influential Wedding Planners on Facebook in the United States”. That was pretty cool.
  • In 2016, I was also listed as one of the Top 20 Best Wedding Planners in Philadelphia (out of 247!).

  • My favorite place to eat in any restaurant is in the kitchen. Second favorite place is at the bar. I love anything that is “behind the scenes”.

  • I have one heck of a life partner who’s not only sweet, but crazy talented. His name is Michael.

  • We have two pups: Mollie (a 7-year-old shih-tzu/bichon mix) and Cooper (a mini Labradoodle puppy).  They are both too-cute-to-get-in-trouble.

  • My whole world revolves around making lists (like this) and getting things done.

  • I like movies, but I absolutely LOVE watching audio commentaries from movies.

  • Carrots are my archnemesis. I will not eat them, Sam I am.
