I was one of the brides who didn't really think much about what her wedding would be like and had no idea where to start when it came time to start the planning. Thank god for Naomi and DNT Elite Events! She made everything so easy! She sent us a checklist very early on so we knew what we were in store for and made great vendor recommendations, people/businesses that I would use again for any occasion. She answered all of my questions via email relatively quickly, and if she had an event and would need a few extra days to respond, she told me, so I always felt she was available. I also loved that she would send out perodic emails to make sure that I had done certain things (e.g., obtain the marriage license). My mom and I trusted her so much that when we couldn't decide on certain things, such as linens, we let Naomi take the lead....and I'm so glad we did.

She was also really patient, as I had a mother-of-the-bride who was a little bit controlling and out of control. But Naomi handled it all with such professionalism.

What I enjoyed the most is that, after meeting and working with Naomi, I knew that I could just sit back and relax the day of our wedding. I knew we were in good hands and if, for whatever reason, there was something that went wrong (which I don't think there was), Naomi would deal with and solve it. We really did have a perfect wedding, and it was all thanks to Naomi and her team.

I would recommend her to anyone for any event.

Naomi is one of the most amazing, dedicated, hardworking, and organized individuals I have ever met. I come from a family who has definitely thrown their share of parties, but for my wedding, when we had to bring in ALL our vendors, not to mention, we had performances throughout the night, Naomi flawlessly coordinated and orchestrated our wedding to run smoothly. She dealt with my guests who were demanding with the same grace as our more considerate guests, and even went beyond her call of duty to help me when we encountered a problem with inventory counts AFTER the wedding. I would recommend her and her team (and have been) without a moment's hesitation!

DNT was referred to us by a family friend and past client. That person told us DNT went above and beyond for them and that's just what they did for us! Naomi was our wedding coordinator and we took advantage of their "Tiramisu Package". Our wedding was traditionally Jewish and took place at the InterContinental hotel in Century City.

In short, Naomi never missed a beat. She was over-the-top efficient and organized. She was a master negotiator for for us, making sure we had the most sensible contracts in place and for the best possible price. She had an endless supply of suggestions and understood our vision very well.

Throughout the planning process, Naomi was a great help. However, when it came close to the big day she stepped it up all the more. Her day-of timeline included every detail of the day in 5-minute increments! Everything went off without a hitch and we have her to thank!

What else can I say!? :)

We were feeling overwhelmed with all the details of wedding planning & decided to hire a wedding planner. It was probably the best decision we've made. We retained her for the month-of & day-of service. She was so generous with her time, and always so efficient and responsive. On the day of the wedding, she & her team were very attentive. They checked in with us throughout the day & made sure that the day went smoothly. Our entrance to the reception & our dance were carefully coordinated to the music down to the second. She & her team, together with the DJ, carried it out flawlessly. A lot of my side of family are Mandarin speaking and traveled from afar. Naomi managed to find an assistant who's bilingual, so that no one felt left out.

My husband and I had a fantastic time at our wedding because of Naomi. She came highly recommended to me & now we will highly recommend her to all the future brides.

I don't know what I would have done without DNT, and specifically Naomi, coordinating my wedding day! I've heard horror stories of brides who stayed up until the wee hours the night before their weddings - arranging DIY centerpieces, finalizing details with vendors, putting out fires, and stressing about the event. I knew that I wanted to relax and enjoy my day, so I hired DNT for the Créme Brulee package - their Month of Coordination with Rehearsal & Day Of. Although it was officially a 'month of wedding' package, Naomi was available to me way before that, helping me through every step of the planning process. She sent me vendor referrals, answered my questions about etiquette and logistics, gave her advice and opinions whenever asked, met vendors with me, and basically supported me throughout the 11 month planning process. In the last few weeks before the wedding, she really kicked it into high gear - confirming all the vendors, putting together a minute-by-minute itinerary for the day of the wedding (never complaining about the multiple minor changes I made along the way), putting together the seating chart, and communicating the final details with our venue. I'm pretty organized and consider myself a planner, so the one difficulty I had was actually giving up control and handing over the reins to Naomi - but I'm so glad that I did! I felt so relaxed on the day of the wedding, and just knew that Naomi and the DNT team had everything under control! I never had to wonder where I needed to go next, because someone was always by my side (sometimes with a drink or snack in hand for me), gently telling me where we were going next and making sure I was having fun. A few days before the wedding, I had been stressed about whether we had enough shuttles to get my friends back to the hotel at the end of the night, that Naomi even offered to stay late until everyone had left just to make sure everybody had a safe ride home. Now THAT'S above and beyond!

Naomi is THE reason our wedding was a success. She came highly recommended from our contact at the Trump Golf Course where we had our wedding in May of 2013. We hired DNT Elite Events to handle our month leading up to and day of wedding coordination, but in reality, Naomi did so much for us from day 1, when we reached out to her 8 months before our wedding. She was on top of every detail, supportive of our preferences, so well organized, responsive, and professional. She made herself available for late night conference calls to accommodate our schedules, came with me to meetings with vendors, and covered every detail you'll never be able to imagine on your own. She is truly passionate about delivering a high quality wedding experience.

A good way to tell that someone does a great job for you is that you miss working with them when the wedding is over. I cannot recommend her enough!

Naomi is an excellent wedding coordinator - professional, capable, and a great design eye. I hired her and her team for day of coordination and a few additional hours to help me finialize the negotiations with my reception venue. Naomi is very detail oriented, well prepared, and encouraging. She gave great vendor recommendation - including our awesome bilingual DJ - for the vendors I hadn't already selected. We had several adjustments that needed to be made last minute - guest count changes, table layout changes, family members who were sick, and of course it choose to rain on our wedding day. Naomi handled all of these curveballs and made sure my veondors adjusted plans accordingly.

One item to be aware of, just because you hire a day of coordinator doesn't mean you give up control of your wedding or that there isn't anything to do. Leading up to the wedding I communicated frequently with Naomi. She sent several very extensive questionaires/forms - and while making tiny and seemlingly unimportant decisions during wedding planning can seem endless, hers really helped insure our wedding reflected what was important to us. I would much prefer a coordinator who is thourough than someone who assumes they know what we would want.

The week of the wedding I actually found myself with time on my hands - it was weird but refreshing. The day of the wedding both my husband and I felt completely pampered - they checked in severl times to see if we needed anything. She and her team made sure the events went smoothly and that the reception was setup exactly as we discussed. My vendors enjoyed working with her and especially appreciated her detailed 8 page timeline.

Her prices were in the middle of the coordinators I interviewed, with cheaper options available, but I felt like we clicked, which pushed her over the top for me. I think it is important to connect with my vendors since it helped me trust my wedding was in capable hands.

For all the brides (or grooms) reading these reviews, know this: hiring DNT as your wedding planners is the best thing you can do for yourself and your wedding.

From the minute I met Naomi of DNT, I knew I had found my perfect wedding coordinator. Naomi's guidance and expertise was excellent and all recommendations that she made were spot on. I appreciated her candid answers and that I always was able to get an informed opinion on any matter that I brought to her attention. And most of all she helped me rest assured that I was covering all my bases for the wedding day and on target for all of my planning milestones (e.g., timing for picking all my vendors). All of her vendor recommendations were also spot on!

The day before my wedding, DNT was priceless. I didn't worry about a thing! As soon as I handed Naomi my boxes of supplies, all of my anxiety and concern was lifted. I enjoyed every moment of my wedding weekend because I was not bogged down by all the details of my big day. And when we did have a random concern, we were able to get a quick, clear response that it made us feel even more relieved of everything.

My wedding day was flawless (from my perspective). DNT ran the whole show, but was discrete at the same time. Naomi's ear piece (think J.Lo in "The Wedding Planner") comforted me and I knew that she was in control. She was assertive with all of our wedding party members, but not pushy. My maids-of-honor followed her timeline to a "T" which made them feel better in being able to assist me through the day. All of our vendors executed their parts under the guidance of DNT and all of our guests were impressed with the effortless flow of the day.

Naomi and her team are worth their weight in gold. You will not regret hiring DNT to coordinate your wedding!

Naomi served as the lead Coordinator for my Wedding, and I am so glad to have found her! She and her staff coordinated the day incredibly well, and what sets them apart is their expert handling of the chaotic, tense, awkward, and conflicting moments that can happen during a wedding. Plus they are FUN to work with!

Seriously though I believe that stressful feelings can seep into a crowd of people easily if not controlled, so it was important to me to have coordinators that can calmly handle situations while maintaining the cheery mood of the celebration. DNT excels at this! Naomi's demeanor and attitude definitely can't be beat.

Other things I love about DNT:
-Listens to your wedding requirements and offers valuable suggestions that enhance the beauty, fun, or uniqueness of your wedding
-Does the math for you. I wanted to fit as many people as possible in the venue selected and instead of drawing out a best guess she engineered the most practical layout and got the job done then and there.
-Stays in the know of popular wedding trends (as well as cliches to avoid) and aware of common cultural traditions (i.e.Filipino's lasso/rope thing, sponsors, etc). Though be warned, their awesome ideas might get you too tempted to up your budget lots lol.
-Asks the important and tough questions regarding details. Even if it puts the bride in a spot where she realizes she doesn't know enough about what she just bought! You need them for this!
-Have you seen her sample timelines yet? Amazing. As a project manager at work, I am very impressed with her documents.

Additionally, my wedding was sort of complicated in that we got an empty venue and had to bring in everything. They put the pieces together wonderfully though, and being able to count on them, and trust in the team was absolutely priceless.

Let me just start off saying...I love Naomi and team DNT! Naomi was my coordinator and she was just the best. Seriously, I'm not even sure where I'd be without her during the whole wedding planning. I decided way long ago that I wanted a wedding coordinator if I were ever to tie the knot. Just searching for one was so time consuming. so, let me save you brides some time and just go with DNT! I loved this most about Naomi, if I didn't know of an answer for something wedding planning related, I'd just look at her and she'd answer for me. It's like she already knew what I would want to answer. When you're planning, you kind of need someone like this or else you just get lost and distracted with all the details and choices. Naomi helped me find everything from the venue, photographers, flowers, chairs, etc. and everything in between. She's super organized too, which is a plus! On the wedding rehearsal, everyone kept saying how great DNT was with their organizational skills and everything. I felt it was little chaotic, but they handled it like professionals. On the wedding day, I was totally stress-free! I didn't have to think of one thing but just to get married to my hubby because I knew and was confident Naomi and her team would handle anything and everything should something go wrong. If we had to do it all over again, I'd def still choose DNT! Thank you Naomi and team DNT!

If you are reading this, your search for the perfect wedding coordinator is over! Naomi and her wonderful team was the best money we spent on our wedding. In fact I think we got way more than what we paid for. From the beginning, Naomi met with us (without having hired her) while we were looking at our venue. She stepped in more than once to speak on our behalf and even negotiated some things for us. We knew right then and there we wanted to hire her. I did a lot of DIY things for the wedding and we had to hire a lot of vendors. Naomi organized setting up everything and called all the vendors the week of to make sure everything was planned. She is the reason the wedding flowed so well. She was in constant contact with the vendors and making sure they were doing their job. On the day of, I didn’t have to think about or do anything. In fact, that was the most stress free day of the entire planning! Another great thing was that Naomi orchestrated the rehearsal. My husband and I wanted to make our wedding different so we wrote our own script for the ceremony. Naomi was right there to place everyone and set up the timing of it all. During the whole process, I would ask her for her advice and she would always get back to me quickly and with the best advice. I listened and followed all her recommendations and thanks to her we had the wedding of our dreams. It is 100% necessary to hire a wedding coordinator so that you as the bride don’t need to stress or worry about a thing on the day of. I can’t even being to express how amazing our wedding turned out and how everything went so smoothly and we owe it all to Naomi. I can go on and on about how great DNT is (especially Naomi), but if you email her and meet with her, you will feel like me and will be confident with the fact that you are in amazing hands.

She is the reason the wedding flowed so well. She was in constant contact with the vendors and making sure they were doing their job. On the day of, I didn’t have to think about or do anything. In fact, that was the most stress free day of the entire planning! Another great thing was that Naomi orchestrated the rehearsal. My husband and I wanted to make our wedding different so we wrote our own script for the ceremony. Naomi was right there to place everyone and set up the timing of it all. During the whole process, I would ask her for her advice and she would always get back to me quickly and with the best advice. I listened and followed all her recommendations and thanks to her we had the wedding of our dreams. It is 100% necessary to hire a wedding coordinator so that you as the bride don’t need to stress or worry about a thing on the day of. I can’t even being to express how amazing our wedding turned out and how everything went so smoothly and we owe it all to Naomi. I can go on and on about how great DNT is (especially Naomi), but if you email her and meet with her, you will feel like me and will be confident with the fact that you are in amazing hands.

I want to throw another event just to hire DNT Elite Events again!!

We reside in Tampa, FL and we had our wedding in Pasadena, CA. Planning a wedding out of state was hard but by having DNT in our corner we were able to have the wedding we always wanted.

I came across DNT by chance. I called another company and it ended up being a florist. I wish I could remember who it was because he recommended me to Naomi at DNT Events. It was the best recommendation I ever took!

From beginning to end the planning was an adventure! We were learning so much about weddings, vendors and being organized!  Naomi has the attention, the confidence and the knowledge needed to get things done.

You know when people say “I wish I can clone you” well, Deanna was just that! She was our day of coordinator and she didn’t miss a beat. We met her the day before the wedding at the rehearsal with Naomi. The passing of the torch was smooth and effortless. Just like Naomi she was attentive, knowledgeable and was getting things done!

Professional, efficient, thoughtful and considerate, we highly recommend hiring DNT Elite Events for your wedding day planning!!!

Hire her - you will be so glad!!!

I admit, this review is long over due. I've been married about 2 years.

Naomi, is killer killer killer great. I think you have to be kind of "super" to do well in her industry and I did speak with some other planners first, but she just had the best personality.

She helped us plan our wedding with all the normal difficulties that are related to that. Then, she showed up on the day of the wedding with a team and headsets (making us feel like we had the FBI looking out for us), and never left our sides during our wedding.

I have been looking at wedding photos and I can see how hard she was working behind the scenes to make everything wonderful. She is a total professional but also really quite fun. And she was pretty tolerant of us too because I am one of those brides who drank too much as soon as that first dance was over and don't remember it all so clearly, but she just kept on doing her job and I am SO THANKFUL FOR ALL HER WONDERFUL WORK.

We selected the middle level service and I believe what we got was worth at least double.

I would give Naomi and her staff 10 stars, 100 stars, a million stars, if I could. I can probably go on and on and write a whole paper on how amazing Naomi is and still wouldn't do her justice, so I'm going to try to cover all the key points why you should hire Naomi for your wedding.

1. Naomi is the nicest person to be your friend, but the most effective person to fight for you. We exchanged hundreds and emails throughout the planning process, and had many phone calls and meetings in person and she's always made us feel comfortable, and always so patient with all of our questions and indecisiveness. At the same time, she was always there to negotiate with our vendors and fight for us wherever she can, and she always has our best interest in mind.

2. Naomi knows her stuff. She will have all the resource you may need and then some. She will give you her opinion if you need it, and find out answers for you if she doesn't already know.

3. People love her. I don't know how many guests have came up to us since the wedding and RAVED about her and her staff. That's amazing, consider she was taking care of us the whole time, but apparently she took care of our guests too!

All and all, Naomi was our go-to support throughout the entire process. She provided recommendations, suggestions, ideas, and she held our hands every step of the way. Her timeline that she created and distributed to the family and the wedding party became our bible for the day and she made everything soooo smooth we never felt stressed or worried on the day of our wedding, which is how every bride and groom should feel on their special day!!

We imagined having a simple wedding with a casual and friendly vibe. Little did we know that this idea would balloon into a wedding with a crazy number of vendors. Because of the complexity of the wedding, it was so important that we had a wedding coordinator we felt comfortable with and understood our vision. Thankfully, through a recommendation of a friend, we were able to have Naomi as our coordinator. She was so responsive and helpful throughout the process. Everything was so well thought out and organized with the questionnaires, timelines, meetings, phone calls, etc.

Having her as our coordinator was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We were really able to enjoy the day without stressing about what our vendors were up to or thinking about what was scheduled next. Additionally, our family and friends were able to enjoy themselves too without the worry of having to pay vendors or stress about the details. We've received so many comments about how great our wedding was, and it certainly would not have been possible without the help of Naomi and her staff. Thank you so much for making our wedding better than we even imagined it!!

We were so unbelievably happy with how the wedding day went and so enjoyed working with Naomi at DNT! It was truly a magical day and more wonderful than we could have imagined. Naomi has a great personality, always upbeat, and had fantastic recommendations for vendors. We had a lot of details in our wedding day and she worked tirelessly to bring everything together on the big day! We were floating all day because we didn't have to worry about a single thing, it was all taken care of by Naomi.

I hired Naomi on the spot after meeting her for the first time. It was the best decision I made when it came to my wedding. She is simply AMAZING. The month of my wedding was stress free and a breeze. She took care of everything and dealt with my vendors so well and went above and beyond to make sure my wedding day went smoothly and was extra special. The day before it looked like it might rain (outdoor ceremony!!) and she handled it so well and rather than me becoming a bridezilla, I was calm and was able to fully enjoy my special day. Not only is so fabulous at what she does, she is the nicest person ever. My wedding has past but I miss talking to her! She is professional, communicates very well, and leaves no question unanswered. Although I mainly dealt with Naomi, her partners were also excellent. Together, they ran the show without a glitch and my guests were amazed at how organized the entire night was. This team embodies everything you would want in your event planners and then some!

Working with Naomi of DNT events was an absolute pleasure. We found the quality of service and the value to be great. The ceremony and reception were perfect, and she handled the small issues that did come up well--even going beyond her job description in some cases!

Because we no longer lived in the LA area, we had to communicate with DNT via phone and email. For nearly 6 months we exchanged email with Naomi on a daily basis. She definitely earned her fee.

She is organized and detail oriented. She has contacts with vendors all over the LA area, and she will search for new contacts to make sure you get what you want.

My wife and I can be a little scattered, and we were a little ambivilent about our wedding. Naomi handled our personalities and approach to the wedding well. Her main goal is to give YOU the wedding that YOU want.

certainly for us and even for several of our guests ours was the "best wedding ever."

DNT helped to make my 200-guest Chinese 10-course wedding absolutely flawless. We were ahead of schedule and they thought of all the little things like tagging the gifts, standing guard in front of the cupcake table when guests started getting grabby, working with the dj + Chinese lion dancers so that the dancing and announcements were well-choreographed. Naomi would ask me little questions here and there, but mostly just took care of it to make our day completely stress-free. Even all my hyper-critical older Chinese relatives remarked "wow your coordinator is amazing", "wow she thought of everything", "wow we are soooo organized!", "wow she's really great working with all of us". They called my wedding "magical", "perfect", "flawless". The best decision of the wedding was deciding to hire a coordinator, the second best decision was hiring DNT Events.

She made the stress of wedding planning seem much easier. She made us feel like we were her only clients with her constant attention, even though she had numerous clients at once! Naomi listened to everything we wanted and understood our style. She was very creative and helped give input and add special details that went with our theme. The day of the wedding was virtually stress free. We both were able to enjoy the day while Naomi and the DNT team took care of everything!

My wife and I found out about DNT through our invitation vendor. We told our vendor that we needed help from someone who we could trust and rely on. She gave us Naomi's phone number and the rest is history. DNT saved us from so much stress and hassle...and saved us a ton of money in the process...Not just in their fees, but in managing and coordinating with our venue and other vendors. As a person who's spent over 30 years in owning businesses that live and die on customer service and quality products, I have to say that DNT and Naomi are as good as they get!...if not better! From our very first phone call to our wedding day/night, and follow up, Naomi was our savior!!...and personal shrink :-D Thank you, DNT, for making our 10/10/10 wedding one of the greatest nights of our lives!

Seriously, I don't know where to begin with DNT. I knew Naomi (the N in DNT) previously and knew that when our wedding day came I needed her there. Oh yes, not wanted, needed. I hired them to be my day of coordinator knowing that I would not be able to enjoy my wedding day if I were busy making sure everyone was there and adhering to the time-line. No fun when you're the bride. I did not realize how involved they would be in the time leading up to the event. They kept track of every detail and we chatted a lot up until the event making sure I was on time in hiring specific vendors.
I have worked in the hospitality business for many years and have worked special events, so I was pretty confident about knowing what I would need, however, there were many times I was asked about things I hadn't even thought of. They definitely filled in the gaps and kept me on top of everything. I can't even begin to describe how ORGANIZED they are! There were hundreds of questions to answer that felt a little overwhelming at times, but come the day of, I was so happy that there were people there that knew as much about my event as I did.

To give you an insight, the day of they have a folder full of all your contracts and are there for your event ensuring that every service and item is being provided that you ordered. They know exactly what you want and how your day is supposed to be executed by the information you discussed. I seriously felt like there was a clone of myself taking care of everything including the minute details. I am a control freak and I was able to relax and completely enjoy my day. My now husband didn't think that would be possible but I felt completely at ease with them. From the service they provided throughout, I had no fear and knew that they understood what we wanted with our event and would be able to execute it flawlessly. Without them, I think I would have been nervous and too preoccupied to actually enjoy myself. I don't know what I would have done without them there. They literally made my day PERFECT! Every issue that came up, they took care of and all my guests kept coming up to me and saying, "Everything is so organized! It's flawless!" I don't know about you, but I have never commented on the organization of someone's wedding. I'm a happy bride :) Coming from experience, get a day of coordinator and if you don't hire DNT, you're crazy!

DNT did an awesome job doing everything for our wedding at Marvimon (great venue, btw). There are enough things to worry about but having them manage and coordinate all the other vendors made our lives so much easier and certainly reduced our stress.

Naomi was our coordinator. She was thoroughly professional, friendly and patient regarding our every request. We had a limited budget for our small wedding but she was able to help us find everything we needed and wanted. Everything turned out to be above and beyond what we expected. We didn't have any last minute emergencies or worries because she took care of everything beforehand. On the wedding day, she, her partners and interns did an amazing job setting up the venue--and there was a lot of setup to do. Having a wedding coordinator, especially Naomi and DNT, was definitely one of our best decisions.

What more can we say about the awesome gals of DNT that hasn't already been said by the other reviewers here?? From start to finish, DNT was essential in making our wedding day all that we dreamt it would be. Pre-wedding, they were always available to give us advice and guidance and asked questions that we would have otherwise never thought of. They definitely covered all the bases, something we could have not done on our own. DNT also took the lead on the day of our rehearsal, making sure everyone knew where they needed to be and when. Another key service they provided was planning out a detailed itinerary for the day of our wedding. Not only did this allow our wedding party and attendants to know exactly where they needed to be at what time, it set the pace for the entire evening and allowed us to fit in all the activities we had planned for. We also must say that these gals really went above and beyond so that we did not have any stress that day. From care packages/emergency kits for our wedding parties, checking in on us at our hotel pre-wedding (and saving me from an almost wardrobe malfunction with Hollywood tape!), ensuring we were hydrated and fed, to ending our evening with a surprise package in our hotel suite, we could not be more grateful! One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was booking with DNT! Thank you again for taking such great care of us!

DNT Elite Events were incredible wedding planners! We were so happy with them, and so impressed with their work. It took a lot of the pressure off of me (the bride), and a huge amount of pressure off the family and bridal party. They added personal touches and were really fun to work with too.

I recommend DNT to everyone, and have only had rave reviews from friends who also hired them. Read less

Originally I didn't want to use a wedding coordinator, but the venue we selected forced us to use one so I started my search. Lucky for me a friend referred me to DNT and once I met with them I knew they would be the perfect coordinators for us. I ended up doing the majority of the planning using DNT for specific questions and suggestions. We met a couple of times before the big day to work out timelines, do a run through of my candy table and to go over my vision. I could tell they were right there with me and totally got my vision for our wedding. They did a fabulous job running the rehearsal and got all of my wedding party on the ball the night before. When our wedding day came they performed WAY beyond my expectations. I didn't have to worry about a single thing that day. The ceremony site and ballroom were amazing. They got ALL of my little touches done with perfection. The actual flow of the day went along effortlessly. It was remarkable! Truly! They were there when they needed to be and then somehow disappeared behind the scenes when they were not needed. Everyone kept commenting on how smoothly my wedding went. I give all that to the amazing work of DNT! At the end of the day (and now going to a bunch of weddings since my wedding day) I couldn't imagine not having wedding coordinators. I can tell when someone uses a top notch wedding coordinator and when someone doesn't. DNT is top notch and I wouldn't hesitate to recomend them to anyone! They are the best :-)

As two control freaks, we initially intended to plan and coordinate our entire wedding, believing that no one could match our enthusiasm and attention to detail. We were wrong! After meeting with the girls of DNT, we realized that the best thing we could do for our wedding was to hire DNT as our wedding coordinators.
We knew that DNT would be perfect from the moment we sat down and discussed our wedding plans. They began discussing certain details that hadn't even crossed our minds. At that point, we knew that our wedding was in the right hands.
On our wedding day, everything was perfect! DNT was at the hotel bright and early assuring us that everything was taken care of. Their only instruction was for us to enjoy the day! The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception ran smoother than we could have ever imagined, and countless guests commented on how well planned and coordinated the wedding was. Our wedding timeline was executed seamlessly!
With so many moving parts to a wedding, we're certain that not everything went as planned. But the important thing is that the girls of DNT handled everything so discretely and professionally that we, and more importantly, our guests, experienced a night to remember.
Regardless of the size or extravagance of your wedding, a coordinator for your wedding day is a must! The weight of the world was taken off our shoulders knowing that the girls of DNT were there and in charge! To every couple that wants to have the wedding that all their friends will be talking about, get in touch with DNT. Anyone can pick a nice venue and hire great vendors, but making it all come together as a perfect package is an art that DNT has mastered!

The one recommendation we would give to any engaged couple is to hire a wedding coordinator. It will be the most satisfying money you’ll spend on your entire wedding… Now, on to DNT Elite Events! The ladies are professional, organized, reliable and personable…in a phrase, “they are on top of their game”. They will go over all the details of your wedding itinerary with you and everyone involved ensuring all the details (big and small) are covered and that nothing is left to chance. Throughout our planning process, they kept us informed of any developments, progress, setbacks, etc. In addition, they also kept us “on the ball” regarding items that needed to be done prior to the Big Day. As the day got closer, they informed us that all the details were taken care of, the vendors were contacted and confirmed (and sometimes, reconfirmed), and that all we had to do was show up and enjoy the day! They provided us a sense of calmness and trustworthiness that ensures they were in control of the situation. Because quite honestly, we’d MUCH rather enjoy our wedding day than to stress out about Uncle Ken’s missing boutonniere! (No offense, Uncle Ken!)

On our wedding day, they constantly checked in with us to see how we were doing or if everything was okay. We would occasionally see the ladies running around out of the corners of our eyes, but figured everything was fine since we were never approached about any “unplanned” surprises. Of course if there were any issues, we NEVER knew about it! We had so much fun that day that we forgot to stress out about the wedding! From our perspective, our wedding day went exactly as planned as we were carefree, stress free and just “enjoying the moment”. All of this would not have been possible without the help of DNT Events… They provided us with great service with a personal touch! They were on top of everything and we couldn’t be more thankful or happier! Now if only my brother would get engaged…

I have talked to many of my married friends and when I asked about their wedding coordinators, most say that even though the coordinator took care of a lot of the details, they had wished they could have had more input on some of the details to make that wedding day what they imagined. You and your team were so open-minded and accommodating that we loved the fact that we could �customize� our special day instead of having another �cookie cutter� wedding. With that being said, I wanted to thank you very much for making our wedding so perfect! You have surpassed our expectations of what our wedding experience would be like. I can�t imagine how we could have a wedding without you and your team to take care of the big as well as the many little details involved in planning for our special day! Every detail was thought through and taken care of� You were always accessible by phone for questions and everything ran so smoothly. I felt as though not one thing could be changed to make it any better. Your team was on top of everything from days before the wedding until the last guest walked out the doors. Our guests continue to compliment us on how smoothly the festivities of the wedding ran. If there is anyone who is in need of a very accommodating, personal, and professional team of coordinators, just send them to me and I can show them how special you made our wedding day. I must commend you and your team on how prepared and flexible you were on the big day. Even though our wedding was set to take place outdoors, it somehow managed to rain that afternoon and you had contingency plans worked out to make everything run smoothly. As a Project Manager, I must say I was very impressed and have never seen a team work together so perfectly as one! I would love to have your teamwork with me on some of my projects! =) To this day, Keiko and I cannot stop talking about how perfect everything was. Thanks again for everything, DNT!

We had less than 4 months to plan a wedding and having no close friends or relatives who got married, we were completely clueless about how to go about planning a wedding. Other than choosing the wedding venue, hiring DNT was my very first step towards planning the wedding and I am soooo glad that we started the process with DNT. Thanks to DNT, we found really awesome vendors and for someone like me who did not necessarily have a clear vision of what the wedding should look like, going by Naomi's suggestions all worked out perfectly! Naomi is also very highly regarded by other professionals in the wedding industry (live musicians, djs, florists, makeup artists, etc) which is extremely important when you're hiring multiple vendors to work harmoniously on your wedding day together. Naomi walked us through every step of the planning and she even helped us save money by negotiating with the vendors on our behalf~ For the most part, she was very flexible with the ideas and visions we had but at times she vetoed our ideas/decisions and boy am I glad that I listened to her! She is a professional with a lot of experience and she just knows when some things just won't work out. You need a planner who can tell you the truth and redirect you when necessary - you will thank her later. So far I was too busy complimenting Naomi for helping us with the planning stage I haven't even gotten to the highlight of their service - the wedding. Naomi started putting together the wedding day itinerary as early as 3 weeks before the wedding. I had a hard time visualizing the flow of the day and planning down to every little detail. But Naomi has this fantastic questionnaire that helps you plan every aspect of the wedding that you would have never thought of - details! details! details! When the wedding day arrived, there were so many people to keep track of, so many tasks that needed to be done, so many vendors who arrived at different times with different set of needs and issues to do their job well, and so many things that could go wrong - it could have been absolutely chaotic. But Naomi was meticulous about making sure everything was under control and on the day of the wedding, DNT was a maestro conductor of a big orchestra making sure every instrument played its part well and all meshed together beautifully to make one big happy day for everyone present. If you're starting to plan a wedding, find your wedding venue first and then find a wedding coordinator before you plan anything else! And if you're lucky enough to hire DNT for your big day, you're good to go!
