White Dress Events is a boutique wedding planning firm with offices in Grand Haven and the Detroit area. Although we are located in Michigan, we’re not afraid to pack a bag and travel wherever a bride and groom might need us.  We have been so lucky to plan weddings in a variety of locations; from grand ballroom receptions to casual backyard weddings to ceremonies on the beach…we love what we do and making each client’s vision a reality.

Branch Manager + Lead Planner – Detroit

As Branch Manager and Lead Event Planner for the Detroit area, Briana loves that she gets to wear many hats when working with a couple….she is a designer, problem solver, organizer, time manager, listening ear, train-bustler and sometimes even a florist among many other things. She understands how stressful planning a wedding can be and she finds joy in lifting the burden so a couple and their family can enjoy this big day!

Briana started her career with White Dress Events as an Event Assistant in 2012 while she was attending Grand Valley State University. After graduation, she began planning and coordinating weddings on her own and loves every minute of it. Briana received her Wedding Planning certification in 2012 from The Bridal Society. She was appointed as the Director of the Michigan chapter shortly thereafter.

The thing that inspires Briana the most is watching the hours upon hours of planning come to fruition on the day of a wedding and making all of a brides dreams, ideas, and Pinterest boards come to life on the day of her wedding.
