D. Perkins Events

Almost 18 years ago I planned and designed my first wedding (photo above). The marriage didn't last but my for love for timeless event design and coordination did. I slowly transitioned into making it a career, lucky to be able to work from home so I could be a stay at home mom. We are a family business and you're likely to see my husband (I remarried and got it right!) and one, if not both, of our daughters setting up alongside me and my amazing team. Years into event planning, I started really acknowledging my love of graphic design and went back to school to be a graphic designer. In that time, I only did very select events to focus on my studies and my family. I came back to event planning reinvigorated with new skills and offerings. My lifelong dream of doing letterpress stationery became a reality. In that time my husband and I also built Humboldt County's very first and still most well equipped mobile bar staffed with top local mixologists, the Box Bar.  I offer a very multifaceted planning and design experience with so many extras, from my organically grown flower and herb garden offerings to custom builds, constant availability and communication throughout the planning experience via phone, emails and even those occasional late nights texts to assuage any concerns. I am not a bubbly person but I am a "get things done, we've got this" person. In a rural area you have to be able to able to be flexible and a problem solver, and I am both.

Through years of personal and professional growth, always learning on the way, and traveling for weddings, I now know I am right where I want to be. With rare exceptions, I am currently only doing weddings and events on the beautiful Lost Coast and Redwood Region of Northern California.

Born and raised here with deep roots and an encompassing knowledge of the area I call home, I am privileged to share the beauty with others to celebrate their most special occasions in this remote and rugged paradise.
