Our Story is Pretty Cool, But, We Really Prefer to Focus On You
Full Service Wedding Planning
We have a love-hate relationship with the videos below, but they do a pretty good job explaining our approach to Full Service Wedding Planning. Our team strongly believes in the concept of "full-service", even if you only need assistance that starts closer to your special day.

"After I got off the phone with Deliece to learn more about Dhalia Events, I immediately knew they were the one for us. ..I cannot recommend them enough, they were an amazing team to work with and easily the best decision we've made." - Minna
Our clients are the authors of their event stories and are encouraged to bring their most authentic and raw selves to the planning table. We work to bring that authenticity out in our events by focusing on creating experiences that are true reflections of our clients.
Our couples are just as much interested in the journey as in the end product. They and already know who they are and what they like - we're just here to bring their visions to life. We encourage our couples to be open about their needs, even if their need is to say "I have no idea how to execute this, and I need help".
From our very first interactions with the Dhalia team, we knew we had picked a spectacular partner to help plan our summer wedding in the Catskills...There is no way we could’ve pulled it off without the Dhalia crew. In fact, I think our single biggest piece of advice coming out of our wedding is that hiring planners is critical - and I can imagine no one better than the Dhalia team...easily the best decision we've made." - Juliana & Josh
Our magic is borne out of an insistence on creating bespoke, highly personalized and tailored experiences.
We require the same attention and quality service be given to our backyard weddings and private events as we give to our multi-day retreats and celebrations. Our staff and planning team members are each personally vetted by our co-founders for this reason. Where people gather, we make it special. That's our Dhalia promise.
That's the Dhalia Experience.
Co-Founder & President
I love having a multi-cultural background with family roots in Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.
My corporate career in Accounting and Finance, serendipitously enhanced my entrepreneurial spirit. and after years of training under one of the top catering and event production companies in New York, in conjunction with my corporate work, I had to take the leap myself.
And it has been the best decision I've made.
I will always support unique approaches to life paths as it allows for incredible learning and new experiences. This is what I teach my kids every day and its what we encourage with our clients for their celebrations. It makes magic...take it from an Accountant, turned Party Professional!
If I could spend the majority of the year camping in the Catskills, I would. Family is everything to me, and my two kids are the most awesome kids you will ever meet. No seriously, you should meet them!
Founder & CEO
I am Caribbean born, easily excitable, and a self-proclaimed autodidact. My MBA and years of corporate experience at the VP level have allowed me to create a company that is backed by solid business and service acumens.
I dream big and our clients value that highly because it allows them to do the same with their celebrations.
"Going the distance" is personal to me as my husband and I spent the first year of our relationship thousands of miles apart. Many years later, kids and all, we're just as much in love (sappy I know) as when we first met. I believe in commitment and helping our clients make the ultimate commitment is truly precious to me. And we get to party at the end of it? Count me IN!
If my husband would get on board, I'd probably adopt as many cats as could fit in our house! I also believe it's fact that salty snacks are the best kind of snacks and that dancing is the cure for pretty much everything.
