What We Do

We provide full-service planning and partial planning. No matter which option you choose, you will receive (and work with us in producing!) our Customized Master Magical Timeline. It is the holy grail of timelines & holds every aspect, detail & component of your event inside. We work meticulously close with each vendor to make sure everyone is on the exact same page with you and for you. The final goes out to each vendor 2 weeks before your day to ensure ample time for questions & adjustments if need be.

We base everything we do on your specific visions & ideas. Working with our couples, hearing them describe their day & how they imagine it, and bringing those visions to life, is everything. It is our passion and our love. Head over to the website & Instagram for more info

What people are saying

Dara is the absolute BEST!!! as a bride, she always made me feel so comfortable and confident and it was so amazing to not have to worry about anything on my wedding day. i knew we were in great hands. she literally thought of every detail before and on the actual day, she handled everything confidently and smoothly. We were working with quite a few different vendors, and she was the one that pulled everything together seamlessly, taking our vision and making it a dream come true. she truly loves what she does and it shows!!! she's an extremely talented and dedicated individual, and we were so fortunate to have her on board for our big day. don't even think twice, BOOK BOOK BOOK!!!!

Working with Dara was a pleasure - she was absolutely integral in making our wedding day a huge success. We originally went into the process without a wedding planner, but ended up tapping Dara to be our day-of coordinator. In retrospect, SUPER glad we did. Dara is very responsive and fully invested in all the pre-wedding decisions and planning. About a month before, it felt like we were scrambling at times -- but Dara made us feel comfortable and organized leading up to the big day. One thing we really appreciated is that Dara brings good ideas to the table but also respects your vision: she will help bring your creative ideas to life but will also use her experience to tell you when you simply need to trust her! Finally, on the day-of, Dara and her team are great. Fully in command and on top of the details. This allowed us (bride & groom), and our families to simply be present and enjoy the day. We highly recommend Castiglione Events.

We could not have been more pleased with Castiglione Events. Dara is amazing - she's extremely organized and doesn't miss a beat. All while being a genuinely kind person you can tell she truly loves what she does. Dara provided us with an incredibly detailed timeline of our wedding, which was SO helpful. We knew everything that was happening, when it was happening and in what order. When things got crazy and overwhelming she was supportive and calm, which is exactly what any couple wants/needs pre-wedding and during the wedding. Dara was also very responsive over email/call/text which we really appreciated. Our wedding was in a raw space - so everything we did - we brought in. We couldn't get into the venue until the day-of, and I'm sort of a control freak so this made me VERY nervous. However - after prepping with Dara months in advance, I was not worried AT ALL. I was actually weirdly calm. The wedding turned out beautifully and exactly how we envisioned it and this would not have happened without Dara. I can't emphasize enough how positive our experience was with Castiglione Events, I highly recommend her if you're looking for someone who will exceed expectations and not be annoying/overbearing like some coordinators can be!! Thank you, Dara!!!!

Daniela, married at the Greenpoint Loft

My husband and I planned our 200 guest, at home, outdoor wedding. The entire day from ceremony, to photos, to cocktail hour, dinner and reception happened at my parent's home. Needless to say, there is no way we, my parents, my in-laws, nor my brother and sisters could have possibly enjoyed our day without Dara's incredible support. From taking on all communication the final week with every single vendor, to coordinating photos as our guests enjoyed cocktail hour, having catering staff make small plates so my husband and I could have a quick bite, Dara did not skip a beat (despite guests would may have over-enjoyed themselves). I cannot recommend Dara highly enough! Thank you, thank you Dara!

Dara was an absolute godsend while planning our wedding, we seriously would not have been able to pull it off without her!!! Right from our initial meeting she was able to ease all of my wedding anxiety and assured me that everything would be perfect. Dara not only kept me on track, making sure that no detail was over looked but also gave invaluable insight and recommendations. (Not to mention, talking me off the ledge a few times when things became overwhelming!) Leading up to the wedding, Dara worked with all of our vendors, (who were just as impressed as we were) confirming and coordinating schedules and put together a detailed timeline to make sure our wedding day ran according to plan. When the big day finally arrived, Dara and her assistant took care of everything and ensured that it was all we envisioned so that we could be stress and worry free. We really had the best time and the day itself was better than I could have ever imagined. Without Dara, we wouldn't have NEVER been able to enjoy our actual wedding as much as we did! Easily the best investment we made! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
