OUR FOUNDERS

KELSEY & JESS

Kelsey and Jess started White Dahlia in 2019, after many years working in the wedding industry. Their vision was to create a company that could offer couples everything they would need for a fully-planned and an intentionally designed event, as well as an incredible team to be with them every step of the way. Since then, WD has evolved to include an amazing planning, design, and rental team.

Lead Planner + Coordinator

A daring, dashing, doer Daniel adores being a planner/coordinator with White Dahlia Events. Daniel began his career in weddings working as a venue director in South West Michigan working with couples from purchasing their venue, planning their menu, and executing their big day. Daniel takes pride in curating an event, silently, from behind the scene, offering all the attention to the couple. Of course, if there is a situation during an event Daniel is probably already working on a solution to keep the show rolling. Nothing makes him happier during his events more than being surrounded by joyous celebration by couple’s friends and family. When Daniel isn’t pinning a boutonnière on someone he is usually spending time with his dog, adding a crazy concept to his house, enjoying a good book, or dabbling in nerdy and enjoyable hobbies.
