What do you get when you cross a wedding with a music festival, and then add food trucks, a record-setting rainstorm, then a heat wave, and set it all up on a steep hill? Well we're not sure what exactly you'd call it, but it sounds like a lot of fun, and a solid challenge! But this is a challenge that our guest was ready for!
Desirée Adams is a wedding planner based in Upstate New York who creates heirloom occasions for modern couples. After seven years of producing high-level events for internationally-recognized companies in Washington, DC, she took a break to focus on her young children. But she couldn't stay away for long. Three years and three moves later, she founded Verve Event Co. in 2017.
Focusing on efficiency and artful design, Desirée helps couples enjoy planning their modern wedding so they still have time for life. For her, life is too short to waste it on moments without meaning. She has received awards from the The Knot, Wedding Wire, and the International Live Events Association (ILEA). In the spring of 2019, she became one of the first wedding vendors to launch an Alexa Flash Briefing. In Ask the Planner: Wedding Tips in a Flash, Desirée answers questions that couples and vendors never knew to ask. During its soft launch, her tips were downloaded 13,000 times.
Desirée is a recovering grammar queen and loves sweating to the Pitch Perfect soundtrack. When not planning, you can find her leading dance parties with her interns (aka her kids), or buying macarons to share with her husband, her high school sweetheart.
