so glad you are here
I started Darling Events in 2014 to build a company founded on beauty and personalization. My company is licensed and insured and I am the lead planner for all of our exceptional events.
I spent 15 years traveling the world world in the hospitality industry. I have been to some of the most beautiful and remote places on and off the globe.
In my travels I met my dutch husband Pino whom I married in 2014. After living on a private island in the Bahamas, I moved back to my home town of Fredericksburg to start my next adventure, Vivienne and Wyatt.
I now apply my experiences and my deep-rooted faith in the value of organization married with artistry. I dedicate my utmost to realizing your vision.

"Darcie made our wedding flawless!! Her passion, energy, and bubbly personality made our wedding absolutely wonderful. She made both of us feel at ease with her professionalism from start to finish. We chose to do the Golden Goose package, hands down the easiest, least stressful thing ever invented!! I cannot say enough about Darcie and her team! Our guests are STILL talking about it. Thank you so much Darcie, you’re an absolute gem!!!"
I am a wife to my dutch husband Pino. The two of us met while doing internships in the island of Aruba. We now share two wonderful babies. We have a 3 year old named Vivienne and a one year old named Wyatt. We also have a fur baby labordoodle. Being a mother is the most rewarding job i have been given. I wear my heart on my sleeve and smile on my face and laughter in my heart.
My extra time goes to my children and family including my ever so close mother. I married a chef. I am fortunate to have one of the best chefs cook at my dinner table. We often travel the globe to try the creations of other world renown chefs. Nothing soothes my soul and recharges my spirit like connecting with nature. I love my girlfriends and i have the honor of holding on to so many for long.
Food, Family, Travel, the Outdoors, & Friends
Virginia is my state. I love the four beautiful seasons the Commonwealth has to offer. Snow in the winter, watching everything come to life and bloom or hatch in the spring, the heat and storms and even the mosquitos in the summer, and the beautiful colors and crisp mornings of the fall. I grew up here and traveled the world and came back. There is no place like home.
I love to get to know our brides most of which we call friends now. We love to hear how they met what makes them happy how they got engaged and of course what her fairytale vision is and then we like to see that smile on her face when her special day come to life. It fills my heart to send them down the aisle as if they are my sister, best friend or daughter. We love them all like our own.

"We did the all inclusive package with Darcie for our daughter’s wedding last Saturday. What a blessing to not have to worry about every little detail and its cost. The wedding turned out so much better than I ever could imagined. She put together a fabulous team of vendors. She and Trudy are serious about making weddings just perfect. We were thrilled that we chose Darling D’s and would recommend her highly."
