Dear September Events began specializing in intimate events. While the word intimate doesn't necessarily mean small, there isn't anything more intimate than a micro-wedding or elopement. It can be a common misconception that smaller is easier and at the end of the day we want you two to be focused on enjoying each other rather than coordinating with vendors, transporting and styling decor, hailing cabs or attempting to schedule deliveries.

  • You Want DSE For Your Wedding

    Verified review
    Maria T.13 days ago

    Outside of deciding to marry my wife, choosing Dear September Events (DSE) for our special day was one of the best decisions we have ever made! We worked directly with DeAnne and Sarah, who were so kind and patient. Despite our lack of specific direction, they took charge and delivered beyond our expectations. DeAnne understood our vision, even when we ourselves were not entirely sure what that vision was. She did not even bat an eye when we u-turned and decided an international destination wedding was the dream. We leaned on DeAnne heavily throughout the planning process, and she seamlessly brought everything together. Even with vendors in another country, nothing slipped by her! DeAnne was organized, understanding, and knowledgeable. She was always responsive and addressed any concerns we had, making the entire experience as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. She supported and advocated for us, even after the celebrations were over when some details needed to be resolved with a vendor. Working with her, it was clear that DeAnne has a real passion for her work and loves what she does!  Sarah was with us in person for day of coordination. She handled our group well and everything flowed flawlessly. We are sure there were many things going on behind the scenes that we are not even aware of, which allowed us to relax and fully immerse ourselves in the celebration knowing that she had everything handled. It was the small details that made having DSE so special. DeAnne checked in with us the whole time we were abroad and sent the sweetest messages. Sarah helped manage our families, corral our wedding parties, and made sure we were taken care of. It was incredibly warm on our wedding day, and Sarah made sure we hydrated and hid us in the shade every chance she got. She was equipped with napkins and blotting sheets, which were definitely needed!  We wholeheartedly recommend DSE to anyone looking for a dedicated, talented, and passionate wedding planning team! You definitely want DeAnne and Sarah on your side for your wedding process. We are forever grateful to DeAnne and Sarah for making our vision come to life and creating the most perfect wedding celebration!  Lots of love, Q M

    Planning our wedding with Dear September was an absolute breeze from start to finish. From the moment we met DeAnne and Sarah, we knew we were in good hands. Not only are they incredibly professional and on top of every detail, but they're also refreshingly easygoing and cool. Throughout the planning process, DeAnne and Sarah listened to all of our ideas and visions, offering valuable insights and suggestions, while also respecting our preferences. We wanted a non-traditional wedding and they immediately understood the vibe we were going for and made it happen. On the day itself, Sarah went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly. From coordinating with vendors to making sure I was hydrated, and managing last-minute hiccups, she handled every aspect of the event with grace and professionalism, allowing us to relax and fully enjoy the night. Thanks to Dear September, our dream wedding became a reality, exceeding our expectations in every way. We can't recommend them highly enough to any couple looking for a wedding planner who is not only good at what they do, but also a pleasure to work with.

    We booked DeAnne a year and half before our wedding. She was incredibly helpful throughout the wedding process. She took time to understand my vision, helped to execute it the day of, and even was there in times when I needed some emotional support. As the day got closer and things became more stressful, she was making sure things were getting done in the background like emailing and confirming with vendors, so that all I had to do at the wedding was show up. Hire DeAnne and her team for your wedding—you won't be disappointed!

  • INCREDIBLE to work with!
