The DPNAK Signature Process

Part of working with me includes constant and complete personalization. Therefore, your package is going to be 100% customized to the needs and wants of you and your wedding.

That being said, throughout the years, I’ve come up with a signature process that will quickly and effortlessly get you on the right track, feeling confident and working towards creating the wedding day you desire.

Through a particular blend of Wedding Consulting and Day-Of Coordination, your wedding day socks are going to get seriously rocked (in a great way).

= The DPNAK Signature Process:

This is the DPNAK “Signature” process. You may need more help or you may need less. No matter what, we’re going to work together to create a package and a process that fits exactly what you need. Deal?

“Danielle went above and beyond more times than I can count to make sure everything ran
smoothly for my wedding. She kept track of things I didn’t even know needed to be kept track of.”

Start with a Free Consult + Receive a Custom Quote

The best way to get started is with a completely free, 20-minute consult.
With availabilities in the mornings, afternoons or evenings, and options to meet locally in the Quakertown area or chat via Skype of phone, we’ll find a date and time that works best for your schedule. 

Just your name and email address are needed to get the ball rolling. Gut-spilling is optional, but very welcome and encouraged.

A QUICK NOTE: Once you send a message, you should hear back within 1-2 business days (although it’s usually closer to a few hours). If you do not hear anything after 2 days, I’ve either been kidnapped or your message went to my spam folders. Feel free to send me an email directly if this happens.

Who doesn’t love a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs)? Below are some commonly heard questions that you are welcome to check out. To read the answer, just click the question or cute plus (+) sign.

Ahh, this is something I hear a lot. “We’ll be fine because our venue has a coordinator/planner who said they’ll take care of everything for us.” Well, in most cases, a venue coordinator is there to make sure that everything with the venue is working and functioning as promised. That is their priority (as it should be). They are not concerned about your dress ripping or if your Best Man is in the bathroom before it’s time for him to give a toast. If the wedding ceremony is someplace else, they DEFINITELY will not be helping with any of that. Their role is to make sure the venue staff and activities are coordinated properly and they usually do their job wonderfully. About 70% of the weddings I assist with have venue coordinators and we work great together because we’re doing different things.
YAY. Ok, the best way to get started is with a Free Initial Consult. We can either sit down in the Lehigh Valley or Bucks County area or via phone/Skype at your convenience and chat all about your wedding and really get to know one another.
Nope, afraid not. Our working relationship needs to be pretty strong and if our personalities don’t gel, then we’ll both be fighting a losing battle throughout the process. My job is to remove stress, not add to it. If we can’t meet in person in the Quakertown/Lehigh Valley area, I’m more than happy to schedule a Skype call (or even old-school phone call) at your convenience. You want to make sure you want to work with me just like I do and, if not, no hard feelings.
Pricing depends a LOT on you: where your wedding will be, how many guests, the complexity of the wedding, etc. are all factors. Once we have our first official chat, you will receive a proposal in your email inbox with package options created just for you. Fees are “flat fees” meaning they are not based on your total budget and will not change unless you require more help (changes are never made without your clear permission). On average, clients invest around $2500-$3500 in DPNAK services.
I’ve coordinated weddings with budgets all over the board, but have found that couples with budgets ranging from $25,000 to $80,000 typically get the absolute most out of DPNAK services. If your budget is less or more, that doesn’t mean I won’t work with you. Let’s start with a consult and go from there.
Heck no. Typically, to reserve your wedding date, 20% of the package price is due within 30 days of signing our agreement. From there, a second payment is typical around six months before your wedding day and the final balance due the week before your wedding. I’m always happy to discuss other payment options, if needed.
Short answer: Yes. Longer answer: As long as the team is available, we’re more than happy to help any couple who needs it. Think it’s too soon before your wedding? We’ve come on board with as little as 5 days before the wedding rehearsal (not kidding). The DPNAK team can do it.
I LOVE Moms! (all family members, really) No really, I do. I understand where Moms are coming from and also understand that they (usually) mean well. They just have a harder time of showing it sometimes. At the end of the day, you are our client, but if Mom (or anyone) wants to send emails with questions, I will always welcome it and help however I can.
Nope. The DPNAK hand-picked, recommended vendor list is based on years of working with the area’s best (and worst) vendors and that’s why I recommend them. But if you’ve already got a few of your vendors selected, or just want to use someone else, I’m always happy to work with whomever you choose. 
Cash, check, bank transfer/eCheck, and credit card (additional fees apply) are all accepted.  Unfortunately, I can not accept puka shells or first born children as payment at this time.
Most DPNAK packages include unlimited email and text communication which means: as much as you like. I don’t find emails or messages from clients annoying or bothersome in the least bit. In fact, they’re welcomed with open arms. In most cases, you’ll receive a response within a few short hours and always by the following business day.
ASAP. Ok, we want to make sure we’re a good fit first. But I’m currently booking weddings that are one to two years out and it’s important to reserve your date as soon as possible. Plus, the sooner I come on board, the more time/money/brain cells you’ll save.
Yes, being a DPNAK client has it’s perks. I have an extensive list of amazing, recommended vendors that I’m happy to share with you as our client. The vendors on this list are there because they provide an incredible service at a fair value. Some of these vendors have also been gracious enough to pass along a special offer to you as a DPNAK client. These offers include added freebies, discounts off of services or products, free shipping and more. The list is in a spreadsheet format making it easy to view and contact them.
I love to travel, but the team has our limitations too. My role as your coordinator is strong because I know the “area” and have made many connections within the surrounding area. The farther the team and I travels away from this area, the less valuable we are to you and chances are high that that area has an awesome coordination team, too. Typical locations are the areas in and surrounding Northeast PA, Poconos, Lehigh Valley, Bucks County, Central PA, Philadelphia and the York/Lancaster area. We’ve also worked in New York, New Jersey, and Maryland. For some weddings, a small travel fee will apply and hotel accommodations will be required, but we’ll talk about that upfront so no surprises here.
Yep! I’d love to share your entire day with you and make sure everything is taken care of start-to-finish, but sometimes that’s not needed. The team and I are more than happy to help with just your ceremony and rehearsal (or just your reception) if that’s all you need. 
Yep. DPNAK Weddings carries General Liability insurance and can provide a certificate of insurance to any venues that require it. I like following the rules and being legit and stuff.
Love is love. That’s the most important thing. I’m more than happy to coordinate any type of wedding you have as long as you’re really excited to be marrying your partner. This includes any type of religious, mixed and non-religious beliefs, LGBTQ weddings, civil unions, commitment ceremonies, green/eco-friendly weddings, weddings with unitards, Harry Potter-themed weddings (yes please!) – anything really. If you’re passionate about it, then I’m happy and honored to be a part of it (as long as no animals are harmed in the process)
I have a strict rule of “don’t hate what you do” so I’m careful to only commit to one wedding per weekend. This means you will have the DPNAK team’s undivided attention and our heads will not be in two or more places at once. We’re all yours, baby and you don’t deserve anything less.
Oh boy, do I have an emergency kit bag. The DPNAK team calls it the “Oh Sh*t Kit” and it contains almost anything you can think of. Duct tape, fishing line, first aid kit, sewing kit, bobby pins, cake cutting set, tissues, mints… the list goes on and on. Let’s just say it’s heavy and you don’t have to worry about carrying it around with you.
No problem! Send them my way by emailing or text/call me at 570-561-4118. Or the best way to get started is by filling out the contact form and getting the convo going.
