Daniela is the best wedding planner ever. Period. Thank you so much, Daniela, for everything you have done to help our day before, of and after go so smoothly and flawlessly. On the day of, she and her team really really help everything to go perfectly! It was the BEST DAY of my life easily because of how much effort Daniela and her team put in! Everyone is on task at all times, and will do everything from steaming the dress, hanging things up, placing stuff in places, coordinating with other vendors, etc. That's the reason our day goes so stress-free. And me and my husband can really breathe, sit back, and enjoy the day!! Thank you! Sometimes I wish my wedding planning never ends simply because how much I enjoyed it, and working with her! 

Shihan & Daniel's 5-Star Review from The Knot

Shihan, originally from China and Daniel, originally from Hawaii met in the perfect NYC way, crossing a street heading to the same party. It was only fitting that they chose to take their relationship to the next level at a classic NYC venue.

The words “Plaza Hotel” and “wedding” go hand in hand when thinking of a setting for an elegant, timeless and romantic celebration in New York. We had the pleasure of working with Shihan & Daniel to plan their dream wedding at the infamous Plaza Hotel creating exactly that setting last October.

From helping select a band to picking out the invitations to establishing the design and look of the wedding to attending dress fittings at Vera Wang (yes, it’s as exciting as it sounds!), we worked hand in hand with Shihan through every step of the process seeing her vision become a reality.
