Heather Dawn Events is a Best in Boston and Top New England wedding planner and designer that specializes in logistical challenges, cohesive wedding designs, and perfectly curated details, ensuring that each couple is truly able to enjoy not just their wedding day, but the entire wedding process. 


I started this entrepreneurship journey in 2014, just 5 months after graduating college from Southern New Hampshire University with a Bachelors Degree in Hospitality and Event Management.

I had been planning and designing weddings prior to that and have had the privilege to work under a renowned Wedding Planner in Boston, Miami and LA, as well as worked as the Event Manager of Kernwood Country Club and most recently as the Senior Wedding and Event Manager at Cruiseport Gloucester and the Beauport Cruiselines.

I am proud to say that due to my hard work and dedication, I have been able to take the leap and make Heather Dawn Events my full time career. A dream that started in my childhood bedroom has flourished into being named one of the top 10 wedding planners in New England, and for that I am extremely grateful.

After years of putting in countless hours and missing so much time with family and friends I have realized that life is too short. I believe in a healthy work-life balance and have implemented that into the forefront core of my business, which ultimately allows us to serve our clients better.

I am constantly dreaming up new design ideas and try to imagine transforming any space I go into—whether it be a restaurant, hotel, or simply an outdoor garden area.
