hi! I'm ​Desirée

I work with couples who want to plan the artful and sentimental wedding they've always wanted but don’t know where to start. I serve as your guide throughout the entire planning process so you understand what needs to happen and when. You get to do all the fun stuff, like taste cake and drink champagne, while I deal with the minutiae. I present you with your options based on what you want so you can make quick, informed decisions, and move on.

You don't know
what you don't know 


You don't know what you don't know


Do you wish you had a professional to talk to that could simplify the process and tell you only what you needed to know and took care of all the rest?

Welcome! Let me pour you some bubbly. We have a wedding to plan!

pour you some bubbly. We have a wedding
to plan!


You and your fiance are smart, cultured, and well-traveled


You want your wedding to reflect your refined tastes. But you have demanding careers and fur babies to attend to. Not to mention spin class and the occasional brunch date.

How do you keep track of #allthethings if you've never planned a wedding before?

"Desiree at Verve is wonderful to work with. She never misses a detail and has a true vision for her events (and it's always flawless!). We absolutely love working with her."

"When it comes to throwing a dream wedding, there is hardly enough that can be said about hiring a capable planner. . . Throwing a wedding is a herculean task and any couple would be wise to hand off the heavy lifting to the pros."

Since 2007, I have produced events from Washington, DC to Oakland, CA. And I've received awards from The Knot and the International Live Events Association. I have also enjoyed working with royalty, heads of state, and celebrities. Due to my experience planning on an international stage, I approach all my events with the utmost precision.


As my family has grown, so has my perspective in events. Time with our loved ones is finite. You don't get it back. When everyone gathers for your wedding, you want to immerse yourself on that day. You want to hug them and tell them you've missed them. You want to connect with them and revel in the moment. I am honored to be able to give you the space to do that.

Sound like we'd have fun together?

OMG. Yes! Let's talk!
