  • I was hesitant to hire a planner at all. I love planning and I was up for the challenge. But after a month of doing everything on my own I was overwhelmed. My full time job left me zero time and I knew I needed real outside help. I came across Dawns website after searching for NY planners. Right off the bat she put me at ease. We ended up biting the bullet and investing in full planning. She allowed us to be as involved as possible but also took over as needed all while looping us in. Our wedding was beautiful and stress free. Thank you so much Dawn!

    Hi Kaitlyn! I'm so happy we were able to make the process stress free for you. It truly makes us happy that you were happy with the outcome. May you have many wonderful memories to come. Please stay in touch!

  • Dawn, is a perfect match for any couple looking to eliminate the worries of planning and designing a wedding. We’re pretty sure that like most couples, there’s always a bit of worries and doubt when planning your dream day. Dawn’s attentiveness, responsiveness, and care for her clients’ best interest made our special day free of worries that made it a day for us to remember. Thank you Dawn!

  • Dawn was a sweet and calming presence not just on my wedding day but in the weeks leading up to it. Four weeks out, she contacted all our vendors and put together the day’s timeline. It really eased my mind to know a such a professional was dealing with all the nitty gritty and I was going to be able to just enjoy my day. Throughout the day she helped with things like getting last minute decorations to our venue, handing out my tips to vendors, even getting the boutonnieres on the groomsmen before the church service. Her and Chris stayed out of the way, but I knew they were there in case we needed anything. At the end of the night I was especially happy she was there to deal with issues that arose with the shuttle bus company we hired to get our guests from the venue to the hotel. She was able to handle it on the phone while we enjoyed our dinner and mingling with our guests.

    Julie! Working with you was wonderful, I wish you years of happiness with your husband. You two were very easy to work with and we were happy to make things stress free. Stay in touch!

  • Dawn was a dream to work with and handled all situations with grace. She wasn't just my wedding planner throughout this process. She was my therapist, confidante, project manager, the list goes on. We had a very large party and many different vendors to coordinate with and she managed everything with a smile and the patience of a saint which I wish I could emulate. I barely had to do anything the day of and got to enjoy as much of it that I can without needing to be involved with coordination which was my main reason for hiring Dawn. Also special shoutout to how well she helped us deal with an irate McDonalds manager who barged in during a photoshoot towards the end of the night caused by misunderstanding!

    Thank you Wammie, its always nice when clients become friends. It was certainly a team effort through out the year. We wish you years of love and happiness!

  • We hired Dawn and Co after a referral from a dear friend. She was the best investment for our wedding day. We opted in for her full service package since both of our careers are really demanding. She organized monthly touch bases, gave stellar vendor recommendations without being pushy and honestly became a friend to us. I hope to stay in touch with her because I miss her already! One of the things I found different about her was her creative edge. She has a background in design and fashion so we ended up adding on design and styling services the last few months leading up to our wedding date. She really turned it out and I was in tears by all of the well thought our personal touches. Thank you for being the perfect addition.

  • Skylar Arden Events and Design did an incredible job managing every aspect of our wedding. The team was responsive, professional and flexible. My husband and I both have previous professional event planning experience, so our expectations were high. They exceeded our expectations and we were able to enjoy the time leading up to our wedding, instead of stressing over the little details. We can’t say enough about how good our experience was.

  • We hired Dawn for full planning and she brought incredible value throughout the planning process and on our wedding day. As an added bonus, she is a wonderful person and an exceptional artist! Our wedding was at a DYI space so we knew we needed a day of coordinator. Before we met Dawn, we booked our caterer whose captain offered to be our DOC free of charge. For sometime we considered using the captain but decided to meet with Dawn whose information I received through a wedding event I went to. When we met with Dawn we knew we needed to hire her right away as a wedding gift to ourselves. Dawn delivered every step of the way and saved us a ton of money! What we loved most about Dawn, is that she took the time to understand our needs and our individual priorities. With this, she helped us focus our energy and budget on what really mattered to us. She always came through with fantastic recommendations even when we continued to change our minds. And she never once gave us a... Read more

  • I didn’t use Skylar Arden for my full wedding planning but I can only imagine if I did! We engaged SA to help with the design elements for our destination wedding and were so impressed with how well she was able to translate our vision into a beautiful mood board complete with details for how to achieve our dream wedding. We also tapped into Dawn’s craftiness for table numbers, escort and place cards and the cutest signature drink menu. Although abroad, we were so happy to have Skylar Arden’s touch sprinkled throughout our wedding.

  • I wasn't totally sure I wanted to hire a planner because I had booked all the big stuff - DJ, Venue, Florist, Officiant, etc. and wasn't sure if I could afford or wanted to spend additional money on a planner for the month of. Now, after the fact, I honestly don't know what I would have done without Dawn, she was worth every penny. Dawn was amazing. She was so flexible and always came to me, was very easy to talk to and understood my vision for the day, and she took on all of the little nitty gritty tasks the month and weeks leading up to the big day that I didn't have time or energy to focus on. She was also SO helpful on the day of the wedding and helping to set up the venue and the flowers and arrange all of the other elements. When I walked in, I didn't really know what to expect but she made it look beyond what I could have imagined and it felt so warm, inviting, and intimate - exactly what I was hoping for. Chris her assistant is also the most cheerful guy and always has a smile ... Read more

  • We cannot recommend Dawn enough. If you're wondering if a month-of planner is an unnecessary splurge, I'm here to say, hello from the other sideeeee - HIRE DAWN. It is incredible how much of over a year of wedding planning actually comes together in the final days before your wedding, right when all of the guests arrive and excitement builds and everyone is getting stressed. For this time specifically Dawn is a lifesaver and worth every one of your pennies. She is also a wonderful florist and made the most beautiful DIY centerpieces for us that bring me joy every time I look at photos, one of a million little details she took care of perfectly. Finding Dawn took our wedding from overwhelming to fun and easy. We were both busy with work, I have a handicapped Mom who couldn't help with tasks, and as the wedding approached we realized we needed extra help for the homestretch. So we found Dawn as our month-of planner. Her easygoing attitude, attention to detail and genuine care for t... Read more

  • I've been lucky enough to work with Dawn from Skylar Arden Events on two Brooklyn weddings that were equal parts stylish, fun, organized, and showcased the couples' personalities in beautifully meaningful ways. Dawn cares A LOT about what each couple wants for their wedding day! Are you having an interfaith wedding? Dawn's got you covered. Want a fun, laid back wedding that's Instagrammable AF? Dawn can do it! Want to actually enjoy your wedding day instead of worrying about whatever's next? Dawn's got your back! No detail is too small! She will work within your budget, guide you to stay true to your vision, and work her creative, artsy Wonder Woman magic to make your wedding day way better than you originally imagined. So grateful for this powerhouse human! You will be too!

  • Skylar Arden was an absolutely critical addition to my wedding day and to the months leading up to it. Dawn, the owner, was down to earth, easy to talk to, and she is not afraid to get her hands dirty to ensure that you have the best wedding day. Dawn and her day-of assistants were the epitome of class and professionalism on our wedding day. Nothing that I (figuratively) threw at her seemed to be too much or too crazy or impossible. She kept me on schedule during the year leading up to our wedding (which is a HUGE TASK, as I tend to procrastinate) but was never pushy. She was always available to meet me in-person or via email, text, or a phone call, without hesitation. The vendors that she recommended were home-runs. Seriously BOOK HER NOW before it's too late.

  • Not one glitch from event planning stages to completion. Dawn was a pleasure and ease to work with where sometimes in NYC you run up against your "challenging" Event Planners. Dawn was far from that! She commanded the lead and ensured everything was calm, cool and collected. It was a pleasure working with her and her Team.

  • There is not enough I can say about Dawn and how grateful we are to have found her! We rented a summer camp venue and had pretty much DIYed everything up until the month and a half before the wedding. From our first call I knew we were in good hands. Dawn was well organized, asked so many questions we hadn't thought of and very quickly put us at ease. She immediately got us on a plan of action and began communicating & coordinating all of our vendors and tie lots of details that were becoming overwhelming for us. Dawn got a "day of" timeline arranged within a week and ensured all our vendors were in agreement and all set for what they needed. Dawn was renamed "Dawn Divine" when she saved us from a near catastrophe when our furniture rental company failed to deliver ALL of our furniture the day before our 200 guest wedding (don't ever hire Boston Rustic Wedding Rentals!). Dawn calmly called me to tell me the horrible news and within hours had negotiated and confirmed to have another co... Read more
