A Big Juicy Wedding is joyful, unique and fun.

My goal is simple: A happy couple who get to have the wedding day they have dreamed about.

I partner with couples to create weddings that are beautiful and stress-free.

I tailor my offerings to each couple's needs. We meet and figure out what support you are looking for. It is never a one-size-fits-all approach. Your unique wedding requires your unique planning.

Sometimes that means full service planning and execution.

Sometimes, it means staging an intervention when you have realized that planning it yourself has become overwhelming.

Sometimes it means meeting a couple one month prior to their wedding date to take over the actual execution of the event.

I am committed to keeping you sane! You get to hand over the stressful parts of planning, as I manage the timelines and checklists and do the researching and running around.

I love projects of different sizes. Offbeat and traditional. Budgets big and small.

I look forward to seeing what we can create together!

Dominique was the best investment we made for our wedding, by a mile! My husband and I were initially hesitant to hire anyone (it was only at 80 person wedding) but we soon learned that even with a small wedding, the to-do list is never ending, and we desperately needed someone to take the reins.

Dominique and I negotiated a price that worked for us both and she immediately got to work (months before her official ‘month of’ start date). Dominique is so knowledgeable about the industry, super-organized and on top of everything. Right away, she began emailing me with ideas and things I hadn’t thought about, going over plan B scenarios in case of rain (thank god it didn’t!) and just generally being an all-around life saver! There are so many small details you can easily overlook when planning a wedding, and Dominique thought of all them. Her assistant Lakisha was amazing too, even buying our platters out of pocket when our vendor fell through.

On the day of the wedding, Dominique did it all, from setting up the space beautifully to wrangling my family members for pictures, to getting in a quick rehearsal with the wedding party, to cleaning everything up afterwards. I felt a sense of calm on my wedding day because I knew she had everything under control.

Dominique goes above and beyond and really invests in making your wedding a dream come true. I would HIGHLY recommend Dominique and Big Juicy Events for any bride-to-be!!

We were 2 brides-to-be, who have been together for a long time—14 years. We are in our mid-forties with very hectic jobs. We have two kids. And let’s just say that we were a little iffy/reluctant on the whole big wedding thing with all of its traditional trappings. But that said, we did want to throw an amazing, throw-down party to celebrate our family and life together and we wanted all of the elements of that party (venue, music, food, décor) to really reflect us. Oh, and we are annoyingly opinionated about those elements -- and don’t always agree -- and we had exactly zero bandwidth to pull such a party off.

Then we found Dominique Bell, really quite by chance. Lucky us. Somehow, Dominique managed, with her awesome organizational skills, extensive knowledge and experience, calm and steady hand, and great taste, to take our vague conceptual idea for a non-wedding-ish wedding, and our mish-mash of strong opinions about details, and fashioned them into a perfect party Our wedding was so thoroughly enjoyable and meaningful for us that we literally can’t thank her enough. She was always professional, always insightful, and always a pleasure to work with over the months and months of planning – and trust us, you need this. Because of her tremendous background, she has tons of great ideas for any part of your event and literally can turn any idea or concept that you may have into a reality. She is a roll-up-her-sleeves hard worker, and can tackle any challenge a vendor throws your way. Oh, and you really want her in your corner when you hit that inevitable wall because you’ve had to make a million decisions and will literally jump off a cliff if you are asked to make one more. Dominique will save you from the brink.

We feel extremely fortunate to have been able to work with her, and would give her our beyond enthusiastic, unqualified recommendation to anyone wants to throw a killer party.

Dominique and Big Juicy Events were absolutely instrumental in making our wedding a success. We relied on Dominique's experience to negotiate key discounts with vendors, select the perfect florist, and seamlessly incorporate some of our less conventional ideas into the ceremony. She was professional, charming, and absolutely on top of every aspect of the evening. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Dominique is absolutely amazing! We interviewed a bunch of people and knew she was the woman for the job the moment we spoke with her. She had so much experience and we knew she could handle anything. She went above and beyond our expectations and really made every effort to make sure our wedding went well. She helped us find amazing vendors for things we needed help with, set up the entire space the day, decorated the space incredibly and cleaned everything up afterwards. A lot of stuff went wrong during the wedding and we weren't even aware because she took care of EVERYTHING! We were never concerned about how things would go, because Dominique had such a calm and in control energy about her. We LOVE Dominique!

My husband and my story of meeting the incomparable, Dominique Bell is somewhat non-traditional. Due to a unique situation, our wedding was filmed and will air as part of a docu-series on ABC Family called “Becoming Us”. Dominique was introduced to me through word of mouth only two months before our nuptials. All it took was a phone meeting and I knew this was my wedding planner. The fire and passion in her voice told me that she was going to get things done in the most efficient, organized, and kindest way possible.

I didn’t think she could get better; then I met her.

Dominique is truly remarkable. She is everything you could need (or dream of) in a wedding planner. She alleviates as much stress as possible when it comes to your big day AND does it with style! Because our day included a camera crew, as well as our guests, we had an interesting added element with which to deal. Dominique handled this unique detail beautifully and made sure that our wedding truly felt like OUR wedding, for us and our guests (You might even see her in action in an episode or two airing in June).

I would highly recommend her expertise to any couple seeking an efficient and talented planner. From a large three hundred person celebration to a small intimate wedding this woman (and her assistants) can do it all. My husband and I are still pinching ourselves that things went as smoothly as they did. She made our wedding day dreams come true with ease and we were lucky to have her!

We can't say enough about the amazing work Dominique did for us and our wedding. We hired her for day of co-ordination of our wedding, we are based in the UK and needed someone state-side to do the last minute details. Dominique was the best decision we made, we didn't need to do a thing on the day... everything was carefully arranged and planned and she completely understood our vision for a low key and intimate day.
Dominique is still famous amongst our guests at the wedding Ninja.. who can make anything magically happen in an instant!

When my husband and I were searching for a wedding planner, we were really just searching for a month of coordinator- what we got was so much more. Dominique was the 3rd and final wedding planner we had interviewed, and I remember clearly the thing that set her apart from the other planners was that she understood that our wedding was not just a big party with a lot of moving parts that needed to be managed; she understood that this was a huge emotional undertaking, at a chunky financial cost, bringing together two different cultures, and all the little nuances that come with that.

My husband and I had done the majority of the vendor search, but Dominique had set us up with our DJ and florist, and they were both amazing. We just got married last week and our friends have not been able to stop telling us that we had the wedding of the year. I had worked on a bunch of little DIY details, and Dominique and her team implemented them perfectly! I did not even touch a single item the day of the wedding. I had an incredibly stress free time getting ready in my venue, casually taking a peek at the set-up process, and by the time I had finally walked down the aisle and saw everything in place, I was utterly overwhelmed at how perfect everything was.

When friends and family ask us how we felt on our wedding day, among our responses of happy, elated, drunk in love, sad that it went by too fast...we always say and will always say, we don't know how anyone else gets married without Dominique!

No matter where a wedding is held, planning one involves a lot of moving parts, and it can be stressful at times. Planning a wedding to be held in New York City while living in San Francisco makes it even more interesting!

We hired Dominique to help us plan and coordinate our cross-country wedding. She was extremely friendly, very professional and responsive to our questions throughout the process.

On our wedding day, she absolutely shined and took away any concerns we had about how it would all come together. She is incredibly organized and took charge, allowing us to enjoy our day with our family and friends. I would highly recommend Dominique's services to anyone getting married in the New York City area, whether the couple lives locally or long distance.

Dominique and Big Juicy Events was, in short, everything we could have asked for and then some.

Originally we were looking for a “day of” coordinator for our wedding and what we got was much more than that. Working with Dominique, we explained what we were looking to do and she totally got it. There was a “click” between all of us that made the planning of everything easy and stress-free.

Dominique was technically our “month of” coordinator. About 30 days before the wedding we met with her to pass off all of the work we had done to that point and she was able to take the ball and run with it. Her execution was flawless and her attention to every detail was meticulous. And even though she was technically only our “month of” coordinator she checked in with us periodically to make sure we were on track to have the wedding we had been imagining – nine months, six months, three months, two months. We felt that Dominique was with us every step of the way to answer questions, recommend vendors, and allay any of our concerns.

The wedding planning game is a tough one to play; however, when you have an advocate like Dominique guiding you away from pitfalls she’s seen over and over again, it certainly makes the whole experience much more pleasant. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Dominique and her services and would recommend her many, many times over.

Choosing to hire Dominique Bell as our day-of-coordinator was the smartest decision we made!!! I cannot say enough good things about her and Big Juicy Events. My husband and I found her to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Our wedding was highly complex. With our venue only providing tables and chairs, everything else had to be outsourced and there were several different vendors that she had to oversee and coordinate. Watching her do so, with ease, only confirmed that it would have been impossible for us to handle on our own. She's bright, funny as ever, creative, organized and could not have been more of a delight to work with. I have only admitted this to my husband, but - i'm really sad that I won't be able to work with her anymore. I truly enjoyed our time together! I cannot thank her enough for keeping me calm (and in the present moment) and going above and beyond to make our day the best it could be. I highly recommend you hire her if you want the wedding of your dreams!
