CHANCES ARE HIGH THAT WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A GREAT TIME WORKING TOGETHER IF YOU:
Want to have an amazing wedding and make the most of your wedding budget
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
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.
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 and 2018, I was also listed as one of the Top 19 Best Wedding Planners in Philadelphia (out of 247!).
In 2017, DPNAK was named in Destination Weddings and Honeymoon Magazine as one of the “World’s Top Wedding Planners”. Holy moly.
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. He proposed last Summer. I said “yes”.
We have two pups: Mollie (an nine-year-old shih-tzu/bichon mix) and Cooper (a two-year-old 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.
