Specializing in Wedding Coordination and Event Design for the Eco-Friendly Couple!

During your engagement, I will coach you through the ins and outs of wedding planning, allowing your vision to become a tasteful event. By letting go of the last minute details, you are able to invest in making memories instead of fussing over specifics. When the honeymoon is over and life begins again, my desire is for you to have fond memories of one special day that becomes the dawn of the many days in your marriage.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding day!

My name is Desiree Dawn Oftedal and I would like to be an asset for you on your wedding day. I have a cheerful and calming spirit, I am a quick thinker and problem solver, and my lust for creativity has drawn me to wedding planning over the past three years. I like to encourage my brides and grooms to think outside of the box, allowing their event to become memorable, and unlike any event they've attended. I suggest ideas that are unique, often eco-friendly, and certainly beyond the average imagination! Read less

My husband and I absolutely loved working with Desiree Dawn Events. Although our venue had an event coordinator, and my mom and I were putting in a lot of hours planning the wedding, I still felt the need to hire a planner on our side in order to get ALL the vendors on the same page and to allow my mom and husband and I to relax and focus on enjoying the wedding as we got closer to our big day. Boy was I right... Desiree kept all the vendors on track, checked in with us consistently, ALWAYS had a great answer to my many questions, recommended some incredible vendors, kept us on schedule, made the wedding look beautiful by adding personal touches, AND she is such a kind and fun person to work with. She is the perfect combination of friendly and professional. We know consider Desiree a good friend of ours and she is even the witness on our marriage license! We HIGHLY recommend Desiree Dawn Events to anyone planning a wedding in the South Florida area. She is transforming the Florida wedding scene for the better.

I couldn't have planned my wedding without Desiree! She did such an amazing job from day one with helping me plan our wedding. She's part planner, part therapist. She is very prompt on responses whether they were phone calls, texts or emails. I can't say enough about her. Every little thing was taken care of, she knows what she's doing!

Desiree Dawn Events played an integral role throughout the whole wedding process, from advice on dresses to intricate details for flowers. I really think the most beneficial thing that helped me was her guidance throughout the past 9 months leading up, giving me her unique check lists, and the priceless advice on prioritizing things each month. Her ability to travel and be with me the week of the event was a great support and she handled things that inevitably go wrong flawlessly. Hiring Desiree was a great decision overall! Our event was spectacular.

With only TWO weeks to get involved with a year of planning already done - Desiree worked hard to help us put on a fantastic event. She surprised us with little extras that I had overlooked during planning. Once Desiree was hired I immediately felt less stress. We are thankful for Desiree and her efforts for our wedding!
Hire a planner as soon as you can! Desiree Dawn Events is Heaven sent!

Hiring Desiree as our wedding planner was hands down our best wedding investment! We couldn't have had such a beautiful wedding if it weren't for her vision, ideas, hard work, and her helpers for the day of! We had so many little things that were very important to us and our vision for the wedding and having Desiree there really helped us better plan out all of our ideas. There were things that I hadn't thought of and I'm so glad she was there to walk us through the planning process step by step, and to give us advice when we needed it. And the greatest thing with Desiree was that she never smothered us with too much or not enough help, we were able to be as hands on or as hands off as we wanted!
With her and her team there on the day of no one in our families or wedding party had to worry about decorating or setting up. Everyone was able to relax and enjoy our special day! We can't thank Desiree enough for her hard work and dedication to our wedding. Although I know she had other weddings going on throughout our 6 months of planning, every time we spoke she was completely focused on ours! I would highly recommend Desiree Dawn Events to anyone that's getting married and looking for a wedding planner.

I had no idea how important a wedding planner was going to be to walk us through the whole wedding process. This vendor took us step by step, gave us timelines, took care of all the phone calls, kept the entire bridal party fully informed, set up and broke down the wedding and reception and added numerous special touches. The cost of this vendor actually paid for itself by the discounts and contacts she had which actually saved us money in the long run. I learned to trust her early in the process and thus hired the reception music on blind faith in her recommendation. She did not disappoint me. No one could leave the dance floor! I will definitely recommend and use this vendor for future events!

Five stars is not enough for Desiree. She went above and beyond for us. Do not know how I would have done it all without her and her assistant Suzanne. Every detail was seen to. I did not have a single worry the day of wedding because Desiree was there to see to it all. Worth every penny!!!!!

Desiree provided the perfect amount of support. She let our vision lead the planing and executed every detail perfectly. She was supportive & full of amazing ideas. She went above and beyond in every way. It was the most beautiful day & she exceeded our expectations. She really couldn't have done more! From programs, to decor, special surprises.... every detail was amazing! She couldn't have done a better job. You would be lucky to have her help in planning the most special day. We were! :)
