Desirée is a luxury wedding planner, podcast host, and wedding industry educator based in Upstate New York. She designs heirloom occasions that bring people together and allow them to revel in the time they have with one another. After a decade of producing upscale events for international companies and organizations, from intimate dinners at ambassadors' residences to inaugural balls with 13,000 guests, she founded Verve Event Co. in 2017.

Her work has been seen in outlets including the Today Show, Parade, Inspired by This! and Bridal Musings. She has appeared on multiple podcasts, including The Big Wedding Planning Podcast, Your I Do Crew, The Wedpreneur, and Every Day I'm Bustlin'. She is thankful to have received awards from The Knot, Wedding Wire, and the International Live Events Association (ILEA). And in 2019, she was one of the first wedding vendors to launch an Alexa Flash Briefing: Ask the Planner.

Focusing on efficient processes and modern design, Desirée helps couples design heirloom occasions from the ground up in the Finger Lakes, Upstate NY, and beyond. For her, life is too short to waste it on moments without meaning.

Desirée is a recovering grammar queen and loves staying fit. When not planning, you can find her leading dance parties with her interns (aka her kids), or buying macarons to share with her husband, whom she met while attending a high school leadership conference.
