Project Description

Cristina and Michael’s Nicholson backyard wedding showed off their dynamic partnership. They may live in NYC, but they decided that the best place to make it official would be in Cristina’s mom’s backyard in the heart of Nicholson, PA.

From the bride…

“I cannot speak more highly of Danielle and her team or recommend them enough. I live in NYC and decided to get married on my mom’s property in northeast PA in late Sept2014. I had nowhere to start, but I did know that I would need help. I read everywhere that a planner/coordinator is invaluable with a destination or off-site wedding so when I came across her website and I liked what they had to say about their role I decided to do the free consultation.

“Danielle has a great combination of easy-going energy and professionalism. She explained her different levels of service and after discussing what I needed (we paid for this ourselves and I have experience with events with work) we decided the “Day-of” services were what I needed. It took some convincing for my then-fiance, but I persisted and he agreed we needed her.

It was the best decision I made. From the get go, she was always very responsive for any questions I had. She has a great recommended vendor list that was really useful for someone from outside the area. When I was torn between DJ’s and florists she was able to give me her opinions on all of them because she has worked with them all in the past. I hired my vendors in spring and then a few weeks out from the wedding she took over.

“She had an unbelievably detailed timeline that everyone thought was amazing. Her emails were detailed and clear. She kept on top of emails that I sent too (I recommend ccing her on your emails with vendors so she is in the loop). She uses a website/app called Basecamp that was also great. All the to-do’s and info was on there readily accessible from anywhere.

“On the day of the wedding she and her team shone. They made the place look exactly as I had dreamed of and thought of things I hadn’t. She was flexible when things sprang up and helped everything stay on track. My husband and I didn’t need to worry about anything and we had a blast. She made our wedding magical. Thank you DPNAK!!!”
