Hi! I'm Danielle Fortner

I am a certified wedding planner for do-it-yourself couples in Middle Tennessee.


I guide couples in the months leading up to their wedding to ensure all details are complete and manage their wedding day so that they can relax and enjoy it with their family and friends. 


Over the past three years, I have worked with a variety of wonderful couples including NASA rocket engineers. I received my wedding planning certification from Lovegevity University and have been featured on Nashville Bride Guide and Happily Connected. I am proud to orchestrate beautiful, worry-free weddings for Tennessee couples.

"Holy cow. Perfect day.

I cannot think of anything that could have gone better.

As engineers, we always say we want the 80% solution. If everything is 80% of perfect, we'll be happy.

But we hit like the 98% solution, and that's mostly because you are such an amazing coordinator.

I cannot say thank you enough, but I'll try. Thank you, so, so much for making our day incredible!"

-McKynzie (Bride)
