  • Dara and her team were in every way the best! From the moment we began working with her, she made the process simple and easy. Even with all of our changes, she accommodated them all with professionalism and expertise. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and perfect event and Dara and her team really made our dreams come true. We can't recommend Castiglione Events more and look forward to working with them in the future!

  • Covid Bride here!! I had my dream wedding all planned out for this past August. I had been in touch with Dara and planned on using Castiglione events for some "extras" on our big day. Then Covid hit and it threw us completely off track. My (now) husband and I decided to postpone our BIG wedding until May 2021 but still wanted to keep our OG date and do a "micro wedding." I immediately reached out to Dara, as the thought of planning another wedding was the last thing I wanted to do. I met with Dara and went over my vision and got her feedback. Dara and her team not only brought my vision to life but they exceeded my expectations. They were there to answer all my questions and kept me organized with spreadsheets, timelines, and contract folders that they created. I highly recommend Dara and the Castiglione team for any event, whether its a wedding or a birthday party. I cannot wait to work with them again!

  • We are so grateful to Dara and her team for helping us to put together what our guests called "the best wedding I've ever been to"! At every point along the way Dara had ideas, made suggestions and advised us on what needed to be done so that all the planning went smoothly. She and her team were amazing the day of the wedding, and we especially want to that Stephanie for coming to our house and being as helpful as could be, also keeping us on the always important timeline. I wholeheartedly recommend this incredible team!! We loved them!!

  • I was looking at outdoor, non traditional venues. I ended up choosing an outdoor farm where everything would need to be brought in. Dara and Castiglione Events was recommended to me and I thought, I don't need a wedding planner. But upon our initial meeting and consultation, I knew she would be a tremendous asset. And that was only the beginning. Dara & the Castiglione Events team were more than planners but partners. They provided extensive knowledge and guidance and made the planning process seamless. But their execution, is what really knocked it out of the park. From planning, to vendor coordination, to set up, run of show and break down and all of the bits in between, I could not have dreamed of a better team to be with us on our wedding day. I cannot say enough good things about them, and urge any and all brides to consider them (even the non-planner minded)! Thank you to Dara and her team for making our dream wedding into a reality.

  • I had been exclusively dating my now boyfriend for a couple months and wanted to ask him to make it “official” with something special. I had decided that I wanted to surprise him with a small, intimate set-up on the beach with custom-labeled wine/gin bottles and some sort of food. I contacted Cassie and Dara and shared my ideas; they brainstormed and the end result exceeded my EVERY expectation! They arranged to have mini desserts from a local restaurant, a cooler with water/drinks, glassware, candles, pillows, and blankets - absolutely everything I had wanted and more - ready for us after dinner so all we had to do was walk down the boardwalk and enjoy! From the initial planning to the final details, and from the set up to the ultimate execution, Cassie and Dara were punctual, communicative, fairly-priced, and professional. I would HIGHLY recommend them and Castiglione Events to take even a simple idea and turn it into something truly spectacular!

  • Working with Castiglione Events was the best decision we ever made! From start to finish, working with Dara and her team was a pleasure. They truly know their stuff! They go above and beyond to ensure that everything is taken care of and kept the soon to be married couple calm, cool and collective through out the whole process. If you want to have a relaxing planning experience and enjoy it, Castiglione Events is the one to call. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

  • Working with Dara and her team at Castiglione Events was an amazing experience. Dara's attention to detail and organizational skills were evident at first meeting, and she did not let up, taking all the worry out of the picture. We enjoyed every moment of wedding planning and had the most incredible day with ceremony and reception being everything we dreamed.

  • Dara was an angel sent from heaven! She was super responsive and wasn't afraid of taking on any challenges that came her way when planning my wedding. I honestly don't think there would have even been a wedding without her! Loved every minute of my experience with Castiglione Events!

  • Dara was such a pleasure to work with! She spent the time to go through a play by play of every minute of the day with my husband and I to make sure no detail was forgotten. She listened to our ideas, gave her input when necessary, kept us heading down the right path, and found a way to execute it all. This girl gets it!! Highly recommend.

  • I have known Dara for years now and to say she is amazing at her job is an understatement. She truly is the best and genuinely cares throughout the whole process making planning your wedding seamless and stress free. The moment I got engaged it was a NO BRAINER that Dara would be the only one we could trust to make our visions come to life from all the little details to the big ones. I have worked with Dara on various events over the years but to be one of her brides was truly special. Kyle and I love Dara and are so grateful she was a part of our day guiding us throughout the process and making our ceremony and reception space absolutely gorgeous. If you are looking for someone to guide you, understand your visions, and make your wedding day absolutely stunning, look no further. Our wedding would not have been complete without you!!! Thank you times a million we love you !!

  • I don't even know where to begin! Dara and her team exceeded our expectations! We hired her as our three-month + day-of coordinator and I truly don't know what we would have done without her. Booking Dara will be the BEST decision you could make for your wedding day. Her hard work, support, guidance and positivity completely eliminated any stress leading up to the big day and all nerves day of. She handled everything carefully and thoughtfully coordinating with our outside vendors allowing for our wedding day to run smoothly, executing the most perfect production plan for our day. I said it before and I'll say it again, booking Dara will be the best decision you could make in your entire wedding planning process :)

We really couldn’t be happier with Castiglione Events: 100% recommend!

  • We worked with Dara for our May wedding in Asbury Park and could not have pulled it off without her. We were so thankful not only for her leadership and know-how, but for her partnership and empathy. Between balancing timelines, priorities, families -- she did it all so that we could remain emotional and present throughout. We are endlessly grateful for that.
