Happily Ever After
is what we do!
Owner & Head of Operations
Starbucks Order- Medicine Ball Tea
Favorite DAHG Menu Item- Hot Honey Chicken Slider
Most Memorable Meal Experience- Having Gordon Ramsay eat our food and not tell us to "F" Off!!
Favorite DAHG Wedding- One of our very first weddings, the client asked for an ice cream sundae bar. We were just figuring things out and didn't know how we were going to keep the ice cream frozen as this was a backyard wedding in the summer with no freezer. We ended up putting it in a box with dry ice. Well, that froze it down to negative 30 degrees and made it crystalize! We basically had to saw off pieces with a knife and let it thaw!!! The guests actually thought it was one of the coolest ice cream sundae bars ever!!
With DAHG Since- The beginning!
Recent Proud Moment-
Going to Denver with Meghan for the MIBE awards back in January and finding out that she nominated me for Heart Leader of the Year Award. I was honored and surprised to be nominated and I definitely didn't expect to actually win!
Head of Sales
Starbucks Order- Grande Iced Shaken Espresso, Decaf, No Classic
Favorite DAHG Menu Item- Parmesan Crusted Chicken, Prosciutto and Fresh Mozzarella, Roasted Potato/red Pepper Arugula Salad with Honey Mustard, Balsamic Reduction
Most Memorable Meal Experience- Disney Cruise Line Meal at Remy's. We went all out and ordered the wine service with it as well along with the $100 black truffle ravioli. It was delicious but I couldn't move at the end of the meal. The service was impeccable.
Favorite DAHG Wedding- I don't have one particular wedding that is my favorite- I can tell you lots of crazy stories and requests but no one wedding stands out as my 'favorite'. My absolute favorite ones to create are the ones for our staff members. They work tirelessly day in and day out to make other's dreams come true that I LOVED getting to make their dreams come true.
With DAHG Since- Day 1- April 7, 2008

Most Memorable Meal Experience: I went to a Bacon Festival in PA and had the most delicious deep fried bacon, egg, cheese and hashbrown brown eggroll! I can still remember the very first crunch!
Favorite DAHG Wedding: I will have to say my own wedding! Yes, DAHG catered mine and my husband's wedding in 2019 and it was everything I could have imagined and more! I was one of those 'late to the party' brides, reaching out in February for an October wedding! Meghan didn't even hesitate and made everything work! The team onsite made everything go off without a hitch, which is really something to say when the location of venue was just a giant field of grass on top of a mountain. Everything was brought in and to us it seemed like an impossible dream but David assured us he could do it! That day 100% would not have been as amazing if the DAHG Team wasn't there.
