Thanks for stopping by.

Where it all started

I know you have a lot of options when choosing an event planner and I appreciate your time and consideration. I am Adreean Shanklin, owner and lead planner of Dani Cymone Events. My company is family owned and operated and we strive to produce extravagant and stylish events. I have always enjoyed planning and decorating events for my family and friends and have been a go-to person for all things party related.


Who I am

 I discovered my passion for planning weddings after designing  and planning my own beachfront destination wedding in the Dominican Republic in 2013.

I have 2 children and a fur baby. By trade, I am a Mental Health Counselor, turned Special Education Teacher and tutor. I am from Chicago,Illinois and I have a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology and a Bachelors degree in Psychology. I gave up my full time teaching career to launch my travel and wedding planning business in 2019. When I am not planning trips and events for clients; I enjoy time with my family, traveling, home projects, interior design, reading, working out, fashion, makeup, gardening, dancing and trying new restaurants. I love to live life, laugh ,and I consider myself to be a social butterfly who can spark a conversation about anything, with anyone. Clients tell me that I have a big personality and an even bigger heart.


I am also an Accredited Event Designer from the Institute of Wedding and Event Design. I invest my time furthering my education in the wedding industry so that I can show up proficiently  for my clients.  
You can expect fun, highly customized and unique events with Dani Cymone Events.  We value being professional and supportive during the event planning process.Whether planning your next wedding, corporate event, or fundraising gala, I’m here to make sure that every event is inspiring and unforgettable.
