associate Planner

Born and raised in Southern California, with a love for wild colors and personal details each of her clients brings to their special day. Her passion for wedding planning continues to grow with every good love story she gets to share when coordinating with her clients.

In her spare time, you can find Darrian enjoying the company of her family and friends, traveling to her next bucket list destination with her fiancé, or dancing the night away at a music festival. Darrian cannot wait to share her love for event planning and attention to detail with you to create your special day!

“Kelsey Sage and her team truly are top notch! Here's the thing. Your wedding will never be 100% how you planned it in your head. The trick is to hire venders that will make it BETTER, and for me... that vendor was K Sage. I chose to go with the associate planner package and had the honor to work with Darrian. Darrian is an incredibly smart and forward thinker, and just that alone made me so willing and able to trust in her to make our day fabulous. Not only did we get Kelsey's supervision, Darrian's execution, but a WHOLE TEAM of amazing interns/assistants who took care of all the small details. I even had an assistant all to myself, which I didn't think I would need, but absolutely relied on the whole day. K Sage was the PERFECT vendor for us, and I would chose them again and again. Thank you for making our day better than we could have imagined”.
