  • I worked with Diane and oversaw her production of a large corporate event in Las Vegas at a premiere venue in February 2020. Her ability to manage an event from managing guests lists, to coordinating extraordinary catering and entertainment, to creating the perfect ambiance and decor was second to none. This event was critical to the brand reputation of the company and received rave reviews from important constituents. Her ability to manage multiple communications and coordinate vendors is a huge stress-reliever for anyone hoping to to deliver an exquisite event that is not to be forgotten.

  • Dee Kay Events helped me and my husband tremendously for our (pretty much) last-minute wedding celebration last year. Diane was very responsive, professional , and truly listens to what you want and need. From the very first call, we felt comfortable and trust came easily. She recommended vendors that would work within our budget and was never pushy about anything. Her suggestions always aligned with what we were going for, and that shows that she truly cares and wanted us to have the wedding we'd love! She was kind and understanding enough to accommodate last minute changes to some of our appointments (because we just had a newborn when we were planning our wedding!). She followed up when needed and whenever we requested, and genuinely empathized with me whenever I'd get anxious. She's a problem-solver! We never had a problem with communication as she's been exceptionally professional. On the day of our wedding, her team rocked! They did all the runs for us and assured us that every... Read more

  • Originally, my husband and I postponed our June ‘20 wedding due to covid. After much back and forth, we decided to elope and save the celebration for a later date. Diane not only helped us find a fabulous last minute celebrant when we eloped, she also re-scheduled all of our vendors from the original date and coordinated the new date for our future celebration. She gave us valuable advice throughout the whole process, which we honestly would have been lost without. Diane managed to make a highly stressful experience very easy for us and we are so grateful to have had her by our side. I would definitely recommend Dee Kay Events to anyone looking for a professional, thorough and caring wedding planner.

  • I wanted to write a review for Dee Kay Events since they absolutely smashed it out of the park for my cousin's wedding. It was re-scheduled twice because of restrictions, but Diane was able to help us with all the craziness. The venue was moved to my backyard and I wouldn't have been able to do it without Diane's help. She helped with social distancing measures, making sure families sat together under the same household, ordering masks. It was awesome. I wish the wedding could have went as planned, but we made the best out of it. Dee Kay Events was so gracious with their time and really got us through so much. We are so grateful! (I had to share the florals since our florist got sick, Diane helped us create these last minute with her resources! I have to upload pictures from the photographer too.)

  • Diane and her team helped us with a few corporate events over the year. Her competency on budgets, design and on time delivery is very helpful to us. We enjoy working with Dee Kay Events and appreciate the help always. If you are looking for a smart team of planners, look no further than Dee Kay Events. We look forward to working with them again in the new year.

  • Trying to plan a large wedding over an hour away with so many moving parts around the holidays is a challenge in itself! Only a couple months out, it became overwhelming and we were running out of time to finish all the necessary tasks and bookings. It came to a point where we decided that a wedding coordinator needed to be called.. we called Diane and her team and it was one of the best things we could have done! In a short amount of time she took over everything for us and coordinated all of our vendors and found others that we still hadn’t booked yet.. Our entire day was planned out down to the minute with at least one planner in each location to make sure everything worked out seamlessly and we were on running on time. She even gave each vendor this schedule so EVERYONE was in the same page!! Anyone that gets married at the Venetian or any venue could definitely use a team of professionals to put all those moving parts together. I highly recommend the DeeKay Events team, whether...

  • We hired Diane to help organize the biggest conference in our industry. The attention to detail takes a certain personality and Diane has the organizational skills to execute it flawlessly. The first event was in Chicago, followed by the big conference in Las Vegas. With over 500 attendees for our private event, with thousands attending our booth, Diane was able to organize invitations, digital and hard copies, catering, entertainment and work alongside our marketing team to make sure everything goes well. Diane makes it look easy and we wouldn't be able to do it without her.

  • I used Dee Kay Events for wedding planning and it was the best decision I ever made! Diane Šolaja and her team were absolutely amazing! She made wedding planning so much less stressful by keeping me on top of my checklist and always staying one step ahead. Diane was very responsive to my never ending list of questions and concerns. She provided amazing vendor suggestions (while being very conscious of my budget) and coordinated with them to make the day run smoothly. Most importantly, she orchestrated my wedding day from start to finish perfectly with much attention to detail. I will forever be grateful for Diane and her team at Dee Kay events. Not only did I have my DREAM wedding, but I gained a friend through the process!

  • I can’t even begin to explain how amazing Diane and her team are. Diane is an absolute expert at what she does and is so creative! They are all an absolute pleasure to work with and they really brought my vision to life. They connected me with amazing vendors and organized and executed the logistics of my wedding perfectly. My wedding was everything I dreamed because of Diane. Vinny and Kat. I’m so thankful that I got to work with them! I would again in a second

  • We used Diane Šolaja and Dee Kay Events for our wedding at Clarks Landing. She and her team were amazing, warm, upbeat, and super organized, flexible, and responsive. Diane put me at ease, was creative and resourceful, and went above and beyond. And, everything was executed with a smile and a hug. Highly recommended!

  • I cannot believe it has taken me this long to write this review! Omg. I am so sorry! I hope this makes up for it. When I was looking for a wedding planner, I needed someone to simply put together a timeline. After speaking to Diane, I soon realized I needed way more than I thought I did. If it wasn't for Dee Kay Events, I don't know how I would have gotten through the day! She reminded both of us of tasks that needed to be done, even down to tipping. I didn't think of so many things and Diane and her team kept us focused and on task. It was the best day! I highly recommend Dee Kay Events.

  • I have worked with Diane of Dee Kay Events on a few wonderful events, one was my daughter's wedding this year and my daughter-in-law's baby shower this year too. A busy time, but Diane kept us all organized and care free. She is so thoughtful and really cares for what she does. She was recommend through our dear friends and we couldn't be happier. I hope if you read this, you make the decision to hire her. You won't regret.

  • Three months before our daughter’s August 2019 wedding, we ended a contract and stressful experience with Diane Solaja (DeeKay Events). Diane promised accessible communication but failed on several occasions claiming technology problems. At some point it seemed like all of her devices of communication failed. This seemed strange for a professional wedding planner who depended on and boasted of being a “technology geek”. Diane promised dates for getting information to us but did not follow through. For example she promised my daughter floor plans for the reception venue in a week’s time but we heard nothing. After several inquires by us she finally sent them 3 weeks after promised. Because of Diane’s lack of follow-through other decisions got bottlenecked and caused us unnecessary stress. Diane’s lack of good notetaking made more work for us. She asked us repeated questions around information that she had already taken notes on during our meetings, or around infor... Read more

  • We used Diane Šolaja and Dee Kay Events for our wedding at The Manor in West Orange, NJ and it was so nice to enjoy and live in the moment during our wedding day! As a bride who is a planner & wanted everything to go according to plan, I was happy to step aside on my wedding day knowing Diane & hear team would handle it from working with all the vendors, the venue as well as my bridal party in making everything run smoothly. In addition, we got to really know Diane on a personal level as she worked alongside us on wedding planning for a year leading up to our wedding date. I was really impress with how much passion & devotion she has as a planner when she went above & beyond to help my then fiance plan a surprise engagement trip! From there I knew I could count on her when I wanted to stick to a wedding budget or use a different platform to host our wedding website. There can be many ups & downs during wedding planning and Diane was amazing on working through it all from prov... Read more
