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.

INVESTMENT

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.
  
As my family has grown, my perspective on events has deepened. Time with our loved ones is finite. You don't get it back.

When everyone gathers together for your wedding, I want you to immerse yourself on that day. I want you to connect with them and revel in the moment. I am honored to be able to give you the time and space to do just that.

I’m an enneagram 2 (the “Host”, shocking, I know) and love learning about personality types. When I’m not planning, you’ll find me choreographing dance routines with my interns, AKA my kids; staying fit with body pump; or crafting new cocktails with my husband, whom I met while attending a high school leadership conference. (Can you guess who was excited to be there and who wasn’t?). I also use a lot of exclamation points when I write (I’m trying to cut back) and never turn down a glass of champagne.

Want to get to know me more? Stalk me on Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook! (It's definitely not weird.)

Hi! I'm ​Desirée

Oh hi! I'm ​Desirée

I would love to hear from you!
Click here to contact me or drop me a note at hello@verveeventco.com. I can't wait to chat with you!

I have more questions. How do I get in touch?

Payments are available in 4 installments. These installments coincide with milestones in your wedding planning:
Planning & Design: due with your contract
Production Fee Estimate: 50% estimate due with approval of your design overview
Event Management: due 30 days before your wedding
Production Fee Balance: remaining balance due 21 days before your wedding

What's the payment schedule?

I would love that! Depending on where you are in the process, you can still take advantage of Full Service planning with budget creation, vendor management, event design, among other things. But I also offer Wedding Management services to give couples extra guidance along the way. Learn more about that here.

I've secured a lot of the vendors already. Can we still work together?

I'm so glad you asked! Custom design is a key component throughout the planning process. We discuss in depth your tastes and style and I tailor the wedding design to you. It walks you through the day scene by scene. Imagery, color palettes, layouts, and fabric swatches are only the beginning. Click here to see an example.

Trying to pick colors and make everything look cohesive makes me anxious. Can you help?

One of the first things I do for my full-service clients is draft a realistic budget. It accounts for your priorities and your vision for the day. I present you with pricing options so you have control over your spending. This prevents anxiety about surprise costs and gives you more control of your budget. A wedding planner is an investment in you and your wedding. A majority of vendors are with you on your day and your day only. I support you for the duration of the planning process AND at the wedding and often even after. You are paying for expertise to manage a complex team of vendors with intricate nuances. My couples want their wedding to be a time of joy and celebration for them and their guests. They want to experience the day calm and focused on their family, not distracted and tense. I help them achieve that.

You're over my budget but I still want to work with you. Help!

In reality, the venue has at least 1 wedding every weekend. They don’t have the time to devote to your wedding and your details like a professional planner does. Nor are they supposed to. The venue coordinator represents the venue. I represent you. If something goes wrong at the venue, I make sure they provide a fair resolution to the situation. If you don’t have a planner, you are at the mercy of the venue.  

What if the venue has a planner?
