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 and weddings that are offbeat and traditional.

I look forward to seeing what we can create together!

i can't recommend Dominique enough! She was such a thoughtful, kind, and supportive guide to me, my husband, and both sets of anxious parents through the whole wedding process. I really appreciated her focus on understanding our priorities, feelings, and communication styles. She also did a great job on simplifying the endless decision-making into something manageable and even fun! And it was especially great to know that she was on top of all the little details (when will this arrive, what's on the horizon, where will that speaker go, etc.) and communicating with each vendor to confirm along the way (so we didn't have to worry). On the day of the event, she and her team were endlessly funny, professional, and supportive. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Do it! Dominique was an absolute pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable, professional and a great sounding board for ideas. While I had planned a good bit on my own up front, she introduced me to some crucial vendors that I loved. Dominique helped me stay focused on the details that mattered and always made me feel like things were being taken care of... and they were! My wedding could not have gone smoother! She was an immense help especially the day-of, making sure everything and everyone was in its/their place. I didn't have to think about the cumbersome details -- my family, friends and I could just relax and enjoy the evening. Thank you, Dominique!!

Hi There Bride or Groom to be! I was once in your shoes, reading reviews and assembling a team of vendors for our big day. Without question, working with Dominique was one of, if not THE best decision I made throughout the entire process. She is a true professional, and she knows this industry through and through. Not only did she help us plan a day that I am still (4 months later) receiving compliments on, she made everything so EASY. Her warmth and energy, organization, attention to fine detail, and creativity are some of the things you will notice about Dominique upon first meeting. What you will also learn later on, is that she is well respected by her industry peers, calm under pressure, and listens to every request with an open mind and an honest opinion, if you want it.
I had friends and family raving about Dominique to me after the wedding- saying how professional she was and always anticipating the needs of the guests. Above and beyond!
She respected our budget, and I appreciated when she would suggest where we could scale back a little (save money) and when to work within a slightly higher budget for quality's sake.
With Dominique, I never once felt like I had a "planner" with me, but an ally to help make sure my husband and I could enjoy the best day of our lives together. xxoo

Dominique basically saved our wedding. Our worst nightmare came true when our rental company was extremely late due to an unforeseen circumstance and arrived only 30 minutes before guests. We rented everything from the rental company, including almost all kitchen equipment, chairs, tables, plates, silverware, etc. For a period of time, we were uncertain that the rental company would actually make it, and Dominique was on the phone trying to get in touch with the rental company, trying to arrange back-up rentals, and communicating with our other vendors (like caterer) that needed the rentals so that they could prepare as much as possible. When the rentals finally arrived she made sure that everything was set up in time. Everything ended up running smoothly and on time. The guests didn't even know that we had a major problem that could have very easily devastated our wedding. Quite frankly, I wouldn't have known that there was a problem if someone hadn't told me (my husband and Dominique actually didn't tell me there was a issue until the rentals arrived, so that I wouldn't stress out). Leading up to the wedding ceremony, our schedule was so full that I don't know what we would have done if Dominique wasn't there. Dominique allowed us to be fully present at our wedding, which is perhaps the greatest gift.

Aside from handling the rental incident like the consummate professional that she is, Dominique alleviated a lot of the time and stress of wedding planning. She was able to short-list vendors for us based on what we were looking for, and we felt like she really listened to what we wanted. At the same time, she gave us honest guidance when we were indecisive. Being very organized ourselves, we felt like Dominique was always on top of everything, and we never had to worry that something would slip through. She is also very warm and a joy to work with. Her planning services are worth every penny. We've already recommended her to friends.

If you're reading this right now stop, take a deep breath and call Dominique (917) 445-6428 and book her for your wedding.

She is absolutely incredible in every which way you can imagine. I do not how we would have gotten through the day without her. We hired her for the month of services but Dominique was there for us throughout every step of the way. Providing advice on vendors, logistics, etc… whatever we needed Dominique was there.

As amazing as Dominique is she is even better when problems arise. We had a near disaster a few days before the wedding and she was instrumental in making it go away completely. She is worth every penny and the day of the wedding is her specialty. You get to enjoy every moment stress free and not worry because Dominque has everything and I mean everything under control!

Dominique is the best wedding planner we could have asked for. She was extremely flexible and supportive throughout the planning process. At the same time when we were being indecisive about certain decisions that had to be made we could always count on her to offer confident, clear, and honest guidance. Working with Dominique allowed us to focus on what was really important which was having the best time at our wedding!

Dominique is super organised yet light hearted and nurturing. She is so well respected in the industry and knew which vendors we would like based on our conversations together. We felt fully taken care of and couldn't imagine having our wedding without her. During the wedding itself Dominique and her team were everywhere overseeing everything. The day ran so smoothly and many people told us how it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We would recommend her to anyone! To be honest, we often miss her.

Dominique is an excellent wedding planner and worth every penny! We followed her detailed timeline and got everything done with time to spare. Dominique is hands-on and was willing to come to my dress fittings, florist appointments, and a meeting with the reception venue. She knows the industry well and can recommend hair and makeup artists, transportation companies, DJs, hotels, photographers, and videographers. She can also help with wedding-related events like bridal showers. Dominique also has great taste in food, flowers, clothes, and wedding spaces. She will understand and honor your vision and not lead you astray!

My husband and I decided 3 years ago when we got engaged that we wanted to have our wedding in NYC. However, since we live in DC we knew we had to get a wedding planner to help coordinate everything. We are extremely fortunate to have been introduced to Dominique the day we got engaged! Ever since then (3 years in the making) until our wedding day (June 2016) Dominique has been beyond AMAZING, WONDERFUL, RESPONSIVE, HELPFUL, PROFESSIONAL and an absolute joy to work with! Her connections and knowledge of NYC/Brooklyn made planning our wedding day carefree and simple! She was able to help us with things that never crossed our minds from hotels for us and our guests, picking out a photographer, the reception place, the florist, transportation, time lines and much more! On the wedding day she even proved to be more than a wedding planner! Her and her assistant became a florist (to fix my oversized bouquet), a hairstylist, shoe repairman, and anything else you could imagine you need on the day of your wedding! Most importantly Dominique has become a friend for life and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND her for all your wedding needs! We were able to fully enjoy our day with zero concern or worry about anything!

We loved working with Dominique!!!! She's absolutely amazing: so detail-oriented, organized, patient, calming, friendly, and best of all, willing to really allow the bride (or groom) to set their vision and then help them carry it out. We hired Dominique for the month of, but she was checking in and setting up meetings well in advance of the month before. Not to mention that she was always available to answer questions via e-mail or phone, whether it was 9 months out or the week before. As the months went on, we were in constant communication and she alleviated so much anxiety and stress. Love her lists and level of organization! Although she wasn't our wedding planner, and instead our month of coordinator, she was helpful in recommending shuttle bus services and food delivery (for the bridal suite while all the bridesmaids got ready). On the day of the wedding, and especially once the ceremony started, we had not one tiny worry at all - she pulled it off spectacularly! The night felt so magical and smooth. Our guests even commented on just how well our large wedding was handled. She also managed to seamlessly coordinate my very large family and was able to knock out 17 posed pictures in less than 15 minutes - that's no easy task! Whether you are the type A micro-managing type like I was, or a relaxed type B, she can easily deliver the same results. We would highly recommend Dominique!!!

Everything in Dominique’s reviews is spot on… She is a fantastic wedding planner. My husband and I actually had another wedding planner to compare her to. Dominique was referred to us when we had an issue with our first wedding planner. We interviewed a few people and chose Dominique on her personality, skills, and a couple unique features that were going to benefit us in the long run.
If you get nothing else from my review, this is the one thing: Interview multiple vendors for your wedding… and make sure Dominique is one of them! When choosing a wedding planner, you want to be comfortable with her/him. Keep in mind the wedding day: Who are you comfortable with asking to do things? Who will keep you calm? Who are you comfortable possibly being naked in front of? For me, this was 100% Dominique. I was completely at ease giving up control on my wedding day for her to take care of payments, getting the band set up, making sure the décor was how we wanted it, etc. I was also completely comfortable when Dominique had her hands in my dress to pin on my jacket, or up the skirt to pin up my bustle.
One great thing (out of many) about Dominique is that she has worked with a wide variation of couples and she really knows how to bring your personal touches to the wedding. She will also tell you that something won’t work, why, and what another option would be. But, she will also ultimately let you make your own decisions. And she has a stellar assistant!
I have touched on the day of, but as our reception ended and I went to collect my champagne flutes and find my stole, Dominique had already grabbed all of that and was headed to our room. I didn’t have to do anything but say goodbye to the remaining guests and enjoy the evening with my husband!
I could go on, but if you are like me, you want the bottomline. Call Dominique and see if it’s a fit. If she is, I promise she will do everything to make your day as amazingly wonderful as she did ours!
