Verve was the only planner we interviewed. If you are considering them, just do it! Desirée and her team are true professionals. And, not only that, they become friends. We felt like she and her team cared about us and making our day incredible. Most importantly, we were able to be present and enjoy every single aspect of our wedding weekend without stressing about details. We knew Desirée and her team were there and would make sure everything was perfect.

"I have never been so relaxed than my wedding day."

 Desirée was the only planner we met before hiring. Her ability to listen to us and create a design that matched us as a couple, and then execute it was amazing. During the planning, Desirée carried the worry for us so that we could enjoy the wedding planning process. Just hire her!

"It was honestly perfect. Truly the most beautiful wedding."

We chose to work with Verve because of Desiree's attention to detail and her young and fresh but professional energy. She always gave her honest opinion versus telling me what she thought I wanted to hear. At the wedding, I had total trust everything would go smoothly! We heard, "This is literally the most beautiful wedding I've ever been to" countless times!

Other than choosing my husband, choosing to work with Desiree was the best decision that we made for our wedding. She’s the most organized, knowledgeable person I’ve ever met! My mom said during the planning process "when I count my blessings, I count Desiree twice."  Thanks for making it the best day ever!

"She read our minds and made our vision come to life!"

We were driving to our minimoon and we said to ourselves ‘We didn't deserve that. It was so perfect. So flawless. It was surreal that it even happened to us and for us. Our friends said it was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever been to.

"Desirée brought so much joy to our lives."

Desirée knows what she's talking about. She understood my vision and was extremely organized. During welcome drinks and on the wedding day, I got to fully relax and enjoy the moment with my family and friends while Desirée made sure everything was buttoned up, running smoothly and perfect.

"We loved her designs and attention to detail."

She curated a beautiful vision for us that reflected who we are. She has amazing relationships with vendors and makes sure that they understand your vision. We had zero stress and full faith in Verve to pull together a beautiful day. They exceeded our expectations big time! We highly recommend working with Verve Event Co. and can't say enough great things about Desiree!

"We would have been lost without her."

It's hard to even know where to begin with thanking you!!! Your creativity, resilience, patience, and organization led us to one of the most epic weddings we've ever attended :) We're so appreciative of your creativity, calm, and genuine excitement. We have been fielding phone calls and emails and texts from friends and family who are expressing just how AWESOME it all was!"
