Diane Kolanović-Šolaja
Creative Director & Owner of Dee Kay Events

I was born to bring people together. As a Jersey girl with deep Croatian roots, it’s all in my blood – the celebration of love, family, and throwing a party people talk about years after. After paving an exciting career path through law and technology, I realized where my true passions lie: helping people on their most important days.

Our team of expert NJ wedding planners has transformed visions into reality for couples across the Jersey Shore (and beyond!) for over ten years. We provide an unparalleled level of luxury for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. I understand the immense importance of celebrating love and creating cherished memories with family. I also appreciate how busy you are and how overwhelming all the details can be. Planning a wedding can feel like another job. I’m here to enable you to claim your time back to enjoy these once-in-a-lifetime moments on this journey to marriage.

With years of experience crafting personalized weddings and a knack for adapting gracefully at the moment, there’s no job too big or small that I can’t handle with ease. Whether you are looking for design help to take what’s in your head and create your world of an elegant, modern, or traditional wedding full of floral details and extravagance, we can make it happen. We take the time to listen, understand and realize your vision for your special day. We aim to relieve stress, curb anxiety and ensure you enjoy the planning process for a day that is yours. Or, if you’re looking for someone to guide you, tell you what’s next in the process, and remind you of what’s on your to-do list, we have you covered.

Our unique blend of experience, professionalism, and creativity offers a high-end, personal wedding planning service with a friendly and genuine touch. With over ten years of experience in the industry, we are proud to be one of the leading wedding planners in the tri-state area and beyond.

With meticulous planning, curated design, responsiveness, and an eye for detail, I am the consummate NJ wedding planner. My love for people, individuality, and inclusivity stirs me to craft unparalleled experiences tailored for each client. I bring a wealth of knowledge, allowing me to adapt to any event so it runs perfectly. But, more than my proficiency, you will welcome who stands behind it: a Jersey Shore native complete with wit, cheeky humor, infectious joyfulness, contagious enthusiasm, and unwavering commitment to ensuring your once-in-a-lifetime event is all about you two as a couple!

As your NJ wedding planner, you’ll get all of this, and I’ll keep you focused on its original purpose: starting a new life together and all of the shared love in between! Let Dee Kay Events make all your dreams come true, where luxury meets uniqueness for the perfect celebration!

MOMENTS FROM OUR PAST CLIENTS

"She takes your vision and springs with it...with passion and an incredibly warm heart"

I could not have planned my wedding without the help and guidance of Diane and the Dee Kay Events team! Not only that, but my wedding weekend was executed flawlessly and I didn’t have to worry about a single thing the day of, thanks to DKE! If you need help with design, keeping on track with the planning process, budget planning, day of coordination and vendor recommendations, all the while really enjoying the person you are working with, don’t look any further, book DKE! I booked Diane & DKE because she’s a listener, she hears you for what is important to you and doesn’t push anything on you. She takes your vision and sprints with it. I booked Diane & DKE because of her incredibly warm heart, her passion for what she does and her immense detail oriented professionalism and execution. I booked Diane & DKE and I could not be more grateful that I did. Love you, Dee!

Life-saver, guardian angel, world-class wedding planner - whatever you want to call her, this is the woman you need in your life.

We cannot overstate this enough: do not hesitate to book Diane. We will be singing her praises for the rest of our lives. After an unfortunate experience with a previous planner left us in the lurch with mere weeks to go before our wedding, Diane came in on her white horse and truly made everything such a breeze. Her genuine warmth, authentically generous spirit, and loving personality instantly revitalized us and not only made us comfortable with the process, but excited. Her meticulous attention to detail, follow-through, and timeliness instilled every ounce of confidence that our wedding day was going to go smoothly. Diane shows up for her clients. Full-stop. This woman makes you and your families feel prioritized and taken care of to the fullest extent.

"Incredible experience with Dee Kay Events."

I cannot recommend Dee Kay Events enough! The entire DKE team went above and beyond throughout the entire Wedding Planning Process! We had no idea what to expect, but we were so happy to follow Diane’s lead from start to finish and everything in-between! The software that the DKE team uses ensures that nothing slips through the cracks and that everything is executed timely. We were extremely grateful to have been able to have open lines of communication from the very moment that we booked with DKE all the way through to our wedding. The DKE team is one of the most optimistic teams that I’ve had the pleasure of working with during an extremely stressful time! No matter the situation or how my fiancé and I were feeling, Diane and her team figured it out with pure elegance and positivity. I can truly go on-and-on with everything that she and her team did to ensure that we had the most perfect, stress-free wedding we could’ve imagined! I feel forever grateful to the entire team.

She did all that with a compassion and enthusiasm for the occasion that can’t be measured.
