We’re never entirely sure how we get to work with such amazing clients, but Lauren and Alex were not only a match made in heaven for each other, but also a perfect match for the DPNAK team.

Both rocking full-time careers, Alex was a groom that loved spreadsheets, organization and timelines. Lauren knew exactly how to rock the right the amount of pretty + rustic and was constantly focused on everyone having an amazing time. When we first started working together, we asked them “If your guests could only remember ONE thing from your wedding day, what would you want it to be?” And they said “that we love them and appreciate them and that it wasn’t just about us, but that we threw this party to help blend our families and celebrate together!”

Without a doubt, they succeeded. The weather was perfect, the food was amazing, we’ve never seen such a packed dance floor (thanks to Rockin’ Ramaley) and the stellar duo of Two Sticks Studios even did a same-day edit showing off all the photos from earlier in the day on a big-screen TV.

Just a few short days after their wedding, we received a notification that “Someone has reviewed your work!” – which always makes us excited and nervous at the same time. What we received was nothing but love, kindness and the type of stuff that just makes us realized EXACTLY why we do what we do.

From the bride…

“Words cannot express how thankful we are to Danielle and the DPNAK team for making our wedding the most perfect day of our lives! After my husband (I love saying that!) and I set our date and decided to throw a tent wedding in his grandmother’s field we knew that planning this event would be intense- we also knew we needed someone to be able to manage the day so we didn’t have to. With a little help from google, we found Danielle!

“After our first meeting on Skype, we looked at each other and said simultaneously, “She was AWESOME!” Danielle stayed that way throughout our entire planning process. She helped up to think of things that we would have never thought of ourselves. She also helped us to find other vendors that would help create the atmosphere we were looking for. Once we booked those vendors she kept in constant contact with them to make sure the day went smoothly! Her attention to detail and organized timelines were just what we needed to keep everyone in the loop and where they needed to be.

“We also knew that Danielle would give us honest advice when we asked. She helped us to make the wedding of our dreams come true and we felt like we made a friend along the way! Our families can’t stop talking about how great she was to work with and how impressed they were with Danielle and her team!

“If you are thinking about hiring Danielle to help you plan your wedding, stop thinking and book her! She was worth every penny and then some! I used to say “I don’t know how anyone planned a wedding without Pinterest” but now I say, “I don’t know how anyone planned a wedding without Danielle!” A thousand thank you’s aren’t enough!”

We always say that it’s never about how many reviews a vendor has, but the quality. Amazingly, we have over 50 reviews now on WeddingWire but so many seem to be filled with so much love and kindness. We are truly blessed and were honored to be part of Lauren and Alex’s wedding day.
