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 my twenties and early thirties working with brides during the day as a free-lance 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 brides, 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 so lucky to have such amazing clients who trust me with their most important celebrations, and an awesome team of talented people who 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!
