“Dani’s commitment to excellence is obvious. She will advocate rigorously on your behalf with vendors and venues. She will not burden you with issues or decisions until she has narrowed them down as much as possible… The icing on the cake is that Dani is easy going, hilarious, and fun to be with… Our wedding was a dream. We owe that to one another, our guests, and Dani. Choose wisely.”

– Corey and Rachel
“When Dani and I first met, I knew she was exactly what I needed for a seamless and beautiful wedding. Dani listened to my wants and needs but also gave her suggestions which made our wedding truly a dream. There is no doubt in my mind that if we didn’t have Dani on our team, it wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was! I will forever be grateful for HauteFêtes.”

– Erica
“Dani is simply the best! I gave her a rough idea of my vision and she brought the design to life with linens, furniture, florals, etc. In addition to being a fabulous designer, her coordination was spot on as well. My wedding was a “destination”… and she made our wedding planning a breeze so that I was not stressed out once during our short 4-month planning period!”
