Modern Love

Weddings are supposed to be about love. And yet, most of the time, they end up being about rules. Wear white. Listen to your parents. Eat cake. Invite total strangers. Follow tradition. But what if “traditional” just isn’t your style? 

That’s our definition of a modern couple. You’re getting married in an art gallery, a beer garden, or on a family estate, wearing a fresh pair of kicks with your fancy duds, keeping your last name and throwing a bouquet at your friends because you want to, not because you have to.

You’re our kind of people, and we’d be honored to help make your big day stress-free, fun and totally you.

We believe in

You get engaged and reach out to Dantus & Co. Events. We’ll connect via a video call to get to know you and your partner, understand your vision for the big day, and what you’re most excited (and anxious) about. This step is hella important because we’ll be spending a lot of time together to create your dream wedding and because our team only takes on a select number of weddings per year. If it’s a good fit, we’ll lock in your date.



Let’s dig even deeper and talk about what you love, what inspires you, favorite places you’ve traveled, and how we can incorporate those details into your celebration. Whether you get married in D.C. or abroad, we think it’s important that your wedding is more than just another pretty day — it should feel personal and true to you. We also use this step to get crystal clear on your wedding day investment.



It’s time to hire your wedding day dream team! We’ll hand-select our top recommendations — only the best of the best for you and your boo. These vendors have been extensively vetted and have proven themselves time and again to be exceptional at what they do. We’re not taking any chances on your wedding day!



Fast forward to two months pre-wedding and we couldn’t be more excited! We’ll schedule one last in-person planning meeting with you to finalize all the details. We’ll follow up with all of your vendors, tour your venue one last time with the seating chart in hand, and finalize your wedding weekend timeline.



It’s your wedding day! We’ll be there bright and early with our binders, floor plans, timelines and emergency gear. We’ll handle everything from supervising the set up, to clean up, to pushy Aunt Wanda. Our role as your advocate is to make sure the day goes off without a hitch.

Pop The Champagne! It’s time to plan the wedding of your dreams.
