Danielle started her career in the entertainment industry, as talent relations and VIP coordinator at some of the hottest spots in San Francisco and Sacramento. After college, she worked tirelessly in the  nonprofit industry working to drive educational and fundraising efforts for several organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Her success in these areas came from her infallible attention to details and quality.

In 2012, she transitioned to her real love of planning creative, unique and beautiful weddings and private events and has never looked back.

Danielle’s experience producing large events gives her a unique perspective of private and intimate events and the desire to always deliver more than the client and the guests could ever expect.

She lives in Petaluma, CA with her husband, Nick, her daughters, Kaia and Makena, their Golden Retriever, Koli Bear and cat, Queen Tabby, and a flock of chickens.
