Desiree Dawn Events

Timeless, stylish, sustainable wedding planning & design

Planning & Coordination in South Florida & The Keys


As the owner and lead planner for DDE, I specialize in creating memorable atmospheres that express my couples' personalities and how they want to represent their lives together. My passion is in designing events that are timeless, stylish and sustainable - both in aesthetic and in the relationship. I adore naturally gorgeous venues, unique food and beverage menus (I'm a foodie at heart), and collaborating with like-minded professionals. As a boutique style of business, I commit to a limited number of events each season to ensure that my full-service clients have me by their side on their big day.

My husband and I spend our days playing fetch with Gator (our chocolate lab) in the backyard of our little white & blue house in Lake Worth. I consider myself a bit of a beer geek, loving shopping local and enjoy spending lots of time in the Florida sunshine. And we're expecting our first son very soon!

What People Are Saying

From a former event planner turned Mother of the Bride, "... As much as I was able to do by myself, without her strength and guidance, I know I would have fallen apart. The last 3 months of planning are the hardest and Desiree just took control... If you are hesitant to hire a day of planner, don't be. I am recommending the best!"

"... your commitment to promoting environmentally responsible (and economical) weddings was the big sell for us! Plus, you are young, fun..."

From a bride who had a minimal budget & only a 2 hour set-up window, "... makes the unmanageable manageable."
