“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!”
~ Tasha

“The Team at HauteFêtes did an extraordinary job and truly made my wedding day one of the most beautiful and memorable events beyond anything I could have imagined. Dani really took the time to listen to my ideas and vision for my wedding. She made every step of the process so easy and stress free. From her helpful budgeting consultation, to venue suggestions, and vendor recommendations, I truly enjoyed every step of the planning process and working with her.” —Tawny

“For anyone looking to plan an event with character and charm, I would strongly recommend that you partner with the HauteFêtes team! We will always be appreciative for all that Dani and the team did, and for creating such a beautiful, romantic and extraordinary wedding day that we will never forget!”
