Vendor Profile - Tina Dannel

Serendipity Events by Tina is a Full-Service Wedding Planning Company. As your planner, we will make sure you will enjoy your wedding like a guest. You, your family, and your Wedding Party will get to be guests and not have to worry about anything, except having fun! We specialize in bringing out your unique personalities as a couple, whether that is your favorite foods, your love for traveling, a fantastic band, or even transforming your venue into a galaxy far away, a wizarding castle, or a winter wonderland. Your wedding vision will become a reality with Serendipity Events by Tina as your Wedding Planner team. Contact us for more information on how we can help you have your BEST DAY EVER!


It depends on the package you decide on. If you get a package with fewer hours, we can always add additional time a la carte, to make sure everything is able to be done to make your day perfect.
Serendipity Events by Tina has several planners and assistants on our staff to cover any emergencies. So far (over 10 years), we have only had one instance where another planner had to step in for the lead planner, but we have a backup encase.
We have worked at many venues in the area, but we have not worked at them all. That's one of the best parts of our job, we get to work at a different location every week! We will make sure to visit the venue before your wedding date so we are familiar with it if we have not worked there before.
We are not decorators or florists. We will set up your guest book table, your gift table, and add things like favors or thank you cards to your guest tables, but we do not design centerpieces or hang drapery from the ceiling. We will help you find the vendors best suited to do that for your event and make sure you have professionals taking care of this for you.
Unfortunately, we are unable to do that. Our insurance will not allow us to be responsible for your personal items after the wedding. We do stay until the end of the wedding and help load up the cars at the end. When we have our final meeting, we will talk about who will take what home, and we will get it all ready to put into their cars.

    Wedding Planner We Didn’t Know We Needed

    Our wedding would not have been the same without Rebecca D'Strana from Serendipity Events by Tina. There was so much during the month of and on the da...y of the wedding that needed someone to lead the ship. She and her team did an incredible job organizing vendors, beautifying the venue, directing our wedding party, and cleaning up afterward. If you want your wedding day to be stress-free and to focus on the love you have for one another, you need their services.

    A perfect Wedding!

    I attended a wedding at the historic Hall of State in Dallas on Saturday evening. The wedding planner was Serendipity Events by Tina. Customarily, I d...o not post online reviews unless the service/product/event was absolutely superlative or completely horrendous. I can state without hesitation or exaggeration this wedding was the nicest of any I have ever attended. As I am a senior, I have been to many. This was a more complex wedding to put together, as it was conducted in two languages and heavily incorporated the wedding customs and practices of two cultures - Jewish and Vietnamese. Everything came off without a hitch. Tina could not have done a better job and assembled an equally impressive cast of supporting players and contractors (caterers, bar operation, the photo people, etc.). Everybody at my table was commenting on what a wonderful job was being done by all of the service providers Tina assembled a great crew. It made for a wonderful evening for all in attendance.

    All Around Amazing

    Tina is incredible! She was so helpful, thoughtful, and respectful throughout our entire wedding planning process. Whenever we had questions or new id...eas, she was extremely prompt to respond and offer ideas about how we could make our vision a reality. In addition to being organized and responsive, Tina is fun, creative, and eager to incorporate unique elements to any event. We love how enthusiastic she was to help us plan our interfaith, science themed wedding! We HIGHLY recommend Serendipity Events by Tina to anyone and everyone planning an event!!

    Adam, thank you for taking the time to review my services. You and Thien are two of the most admirable young men I know. I love that I got to be part ...of your wedding at Hall of State. It was so fun incorporating both your and Thien's cultures and a fun Science theme all together When we began planning you were living in Connecticut and attending were Yale, and then you moved to California after graduation, and while planning your wedding. I loved getting to spend a day with you a few times when you were in town and being able to introduce you to vendors who would work perfectly for your wedding. You and Thien were just glowing on your wedding day and I hope you remember those happy feelings for many years.

    Tina did an amazing job! We hired her as a day of planner, but she did so much more! She recommended vendors, collected the contracts, contacted them ...near the wedding date to make sure all were on point. She checked in throughout the year of planning to see if we needed anything. She reworked our timetable numerous times due to last minute changes. On the day of the wedding, as the mother of the bride, I was able to relax and enjoy the day once Tina and Sophia arrived. The reception went so smoothly. EVERYONE who came gave me the feedback that it was the best wedding they ever attended! Tina graciously handled my one unknown gluten allergy guest, and even dropped all the extra alcohol, which we forgot, off at my hotel as she left the venue. I highly recommend her if you want a stress free event!

    Susan, I know it can be incredibly challenging planning a long-distance wedding. Thank you for trusting my recommendations and knowledge to help make ...the process easier. It was a fun-themed wedding and I loved that so many people got to meet for the first time in person there! I wish Stephanie & Austin years of happiness!

    Brittany, I am so glad that your wedding was everything you imagined. Your expectations were high, and you were a bit nervous about it all coming toge...ther. I appreciate you putting your trust in me. Your wedding was so beautiful and PINK! The helicopter exit was an exciting exit to a wonderful day. Congratulations to you and Chase!

    Best Wedding Coordinator Ever

    WOW JUST WOW!!! Tina and Sophia were outstanding. Tina is so easy to work with and she made my daughter's wedding the best day ever. If I had it do over I would pick her again! Her organization kept everything seamless. From her month of and day of checklist (with things to not forget) to assisting with the hotel rooms block and all the other things in between were handled to perfection! Thank You, Tina! Your work was truly appreciated!

    The best day!!!

    Tina is a true gift. We truly could not have done it without her and I’ll forever be thankful! We paid for one of the smaller packages and I still f...eel she went above and beyond for us and our 12.2.22 wedding. It may be small (and maybe silly of me), but coming back to our table every now and then after I’d exhaust myself on the dance floor and seeing my drink always refilled, I felt truly cared for and it warmed my heart. Knowing I could just enjoy our day and Tina making sure everything was taken care of- the relief, peace, and joy I felt! Especially after all the hard work and time put into planning with all of life’s other challenges. As we all know, wedding planning is WORK, so I am EXTRA appreciative of how Tina guided us with our to-do’s, answered any questions we had, made amazing suggestions, gave extremely helpful tips, and checked in on how we were and our progress. I hope she gets all the recognition she deserves because she is astounding and beyond amazing at her job. I absolutely recommend Tina and know you won’t regret it!

    Simply the BEST

    Serendipity Events is amazing! We hired them for a wedding at the Perot museum which was logistically tricky since we had limited setup time and had t...o herd guests to different floors for each portion of the event. Tina, Sofia, and Sarah were on top of it all day and our wedding was seamless! We couldn't have done it without them!

    Additionally, my wife and I are queer and it can be difficult and scary to find queer affirming vendors in Texas. Serendipity Events celebrated and affirmed our identities and helped us find other LGBTQIA+ affirming vendors as well.

    Kristin, you and Rebecca are such great humans. I am sorry that it can be uncomfortable to find vendors who are love-inclusive. I am glad I could help... you to navigate finding vendors and help to keep you feeling loved and safe as we planned your wedding. And what a fun wedding it was!

    Amazing planner

    Tina and her team were absolutely amazing! She is the reason we were able to have our dream wedding. She was so easy to communicate with, offered suggestions, did damage control and was able to keep up with vendors that I was feeling frustrated by. For the wedding day she was on top of everything. Not one thing was out of place. My guests literally told me it was the best wedding they had been to. Her team was the sweetest and everyone was so professional. If I could go back I wouldn’t do anything differently. I highly recommend Tina for your event. You will not regret it. My husband and I are so grateful for her and her team. Thank you so much for making our perfect day happen.
