I'm Dana, founder and lead planner at Happy Hour Events.

I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia (aka, Delco) and moved to the Delaware beaches a few years ago, to trade in my high heels and late-night city life, for converse sneakers and beach happy hours. Best decision ever!  


I spent most of my twenties and early thirties working with brides during the day as a freelance makeup artist and managing events for restaurants, night clubs, and off-premise catering companies at night. 

With more than 20+ years in the hospitality industry, I've managed countless events, worked with hundreds of clients, and learned a whole lot about what it takes to make a great event happen (without losing your shit).  My style is laid-back, approachable, and efficient, I like to keep things simple, and I never make a promise I can't keep. 

I love what I do and I'm lucky enough to have amazing clients that trust me with their most important celebrations and an awesome team of talented people that work hard to help me make it all happen.  There's honestly nothing better than getting to do what you love, with people that you love!
