Danielle Couick

Principal + Creative Director, Magnolia Bluebird

Danielle’s narrative lays much of the foundation for her approach to entertaining, her style and the way she delivers her client experience. A native North Carolinian and Washington, D.C. transplant, Danielle is no stranger to great hospitality and celebrations with soul. Finding her foothold in the special events industry began with a passion for architectural design, a degree in hospitality, a decade in the food and beverage industry and a strong desire to create social impact and engagement. Blending these fifteen (ahem, plus) years of experience together has made Danielle one of the most sought after and revered planners in the country.

She believes in creating environments that are beautiful, interesting, inspiring and engaging. Layering texture and textiles in her designs is as important to her as layering emotion and intentional moments. By infusing her events with these subtle (and not so subtle) touches, she elevates the event experience from the expected to the extraordinary. It is with her grace, humor, eye for detail and passion for people that gives her the ability to engage her clients and vendor partners on a personal level thus creating a collaborative team rather than individual parts. It is not by coincidence that her clients become part of the extended Magnolia Bluebird family.

A nationally acclaimed award winner for her impeccable event design and production, Danielle is revered as an industry expert and is often tapped to share her insights through editorial and educational contribution on the national level. Danielle was named one of “The Best Event Planners in the Country” by PartySlate in 2018, “Best Wedding Planner” by Washingtonian Bride and Groom, a “Top 100 MWBE” (Minority and Women in Business Entrepreneur), one of the Best Wedding Planners and Designers of 2015 by ModWedding, and was recognized by international publication, Special Events Magazine as a “’30 Under 40′ Event Professional Worth Watching.”
