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.
