Meet ​Desirée

Upstate NY Wedding Planner, Podcast Host, and Educator

I work with busy couples who want their wedding planning experience to feel smooth and effortless. Their wedding symbolizes the beginning of a new chapter for both their families, a collection of moments and experiences that are thoughtfully orchestrated during the months leading up to their wedding day.

Their wedding reflects their refined tastes and serves as the ultimate opportunity for them to create an experience that will be remembered for generations to come because it's a special day not just for them, but for their loved ones, too.

   


Since 2007, I’ve produced events from coast to coast. I've received awards from The Knot and the International Live Events Association and I’ve been fortunate to have my work featured in several outlets, including the Today Show, New York Mag, Parade, Bridal Musings, Wedding Chicks, and Inspired by This!

I've enjoyed working with royalty, heads of state, and celebrities. Thanks to my experience planning on an international stage, I approach my events with a focus on precision, originality, and design.

From D.C. to California to New York

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.

Life's too short to waste it on moments without joy.

Your wedding will be the most special experience you will share with your friends and family. let's make sure everyone remembers it for generations to come.

We will say this 100 times but we can't say it enough: you have put more work into our wedding than we ever could have imagined. Please know that we appreciate you and that you have truly brought so much joy into our lives. Thank you for your steadiness; it has helped us stay grounded for sure!"

Desirée brought so much joy to our lives.

Tim and I were able to enjoy our wedding and focus on having a great time with our guests. She was also super organized and creative at the same time. This was important to me because not everyone is so talented at both aspects of the planning. I wish she could plan the rest of our married life as well!"


Desirée was looking out for us every step of the way.

Desirée was nothing short of amazing! She helped us realize our destination "wedding festival" vision. She helped us find nearly 50 vendors that met our quality and experience goals (including 2 out-of-state bands). If you have an event that requires vision and want a best-in-class guest experience, Desirée is for you. We couldn't have done it without her!"


It was the event of our lifetime! We couldn't have done it without her.

Enneagram 2

I love learning about personality types as a way to grow in my self-awareness. But I also get a little bit obsessed! I've never met a personality test I didn't like! I'm also an ESFJ (the "Consul" or "cheerleader" - literally me in high school).
