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

A few fun facts about me-

I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia (aka, Delco) and moved to the Delaware beaches about eight years ago to trade in high heels and late nights for converse and beach happy hours. It took a little adjusting but it was a solid choice.


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, nightclubs, and off-premise catering companies at night so when I realized how many people needed help in this area with general event management and destination wedding planning I decided to create a service to help them.  ​After more than 25 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). 


I'm super straightforward and easygoing, I like to keep things simple, and I never make a promise that I can't keep. 


I'm just naturally an overly organized, get things done kind of person (sometimes so much so that I annoy myself) and I enjoy helping people.  I'm lucky enough to have awesome clients who trust me with their most important celebrations and I get to work with a great team of people and the best vendors in the area to help me make it all happen.  Life is short and there's honestly nothing better than getting to do what you love, with people that you love.
