Meet the Two Be Wed planners
Wedding Planner / Owner
"Since the day I opened the doors at Two Be Wed, I have chosen to define success as something beyond just Two Be Wed growing and prospering. Our vision has always been (and always will be) to raise the standard of the ‘wedding event’ in Houston and beyond. Our goal is to inspire everyone we work with in the industry to reach for new levels of creativity and expertise. Our mission is to provide the kind of exceptional service that eliminates any undue stress on our clients, so they get the greatest amount of enjoyment out of their engagement. When the big day arrives, our clients feel more confident and assured because of the experiences they’ve had with us along the planning journey. And when it’s all over, we hope every Two Be Wed client remembers us for being efficient, resourceful, and fun to be with for God’s sake! Now that I personally limit the number of clients I take per year, I spend much of my time training a very talented and trustworthy team of consultants."

Her previous work experience includes time with the U.S. Geological Survey, where dotting i’s and crossing t’s is paramount. She also taught 7th grade science, so it’s no surprise she knows how to throw together a meticulous itinerary and timeline. Bottom line: Danyett gets the job done right, every time.

Sentimentality is an asset, and I’m not talking about an Instagram filter. As a wedding planner, Catherine Duffin sees her clients’ history as a storehouse of beauty, love, and life. Those are the parts of a relationship that belong in the future, and the wedding is the best way to transport them there. When you work with Catherine, you can plan on having your fair share of unforgettable wedding moments to look back on.

Love letters from our clients and vendors
We had the MOST unbelievable weekend. The wedding was beyond anything I could have imagined—it still feels like a dream. I love that my house was filled with family and friends to relive the whole weekend! Thank you for everything, there really are no words that can express the joy and gratitude I feel in working with you. You turned our vision into a reality. It was magical!
Working with Two Be Wed and more specifically, Ashley Joseph, has been such a wonderful experience. Ashley really cares about her client and providing the best of services while still remaining within the client’s budget! As her client’s maid of honor, I've personally felt the weight lifted off of my shoulders during our wedding planning experience. Not only is Ashley incredible at her job under normal circumstances, she's really stepped it up to help the bride and I plan this wedding in Houston from Seattle, Washington! She pulled together appointments for us to meet with everyone from catering, to floral, to venues for a single weekend, and at the same time relieved all of the stress that came along with something so overwhelming. A normal bride would have done all of this in a span of 3 months but Ashley did it for us in one weekend!
We just got back from the beach and a little R&R after a joy-filled wedding weekend! Thank you for all of your assistance, guidance and care throughout the months of planning and the big day. We were all in very capable hands! It was truly a special day in our lives and you were always at the ready to help in big and small ways. We truly left all of the worrying to you and were able to enjoy our daughter's wedding day. The biggest gift of all…
I know we worked you hard with changing things from a destination wedding in Mexico, to Florida, to Las Vegas, to California and then all the way back home to a big wedding here in Houston. You were always ready to listen to our thoughts and changes, and were always supportive. Most brides probably would have freaked out at the fact that it was POURING rain, we had usual Friday traffic, some roads were shut down because President Obama was in town, the Rodeo was causing additional traffic, and of course other small things here and there that caused us to start late and move the ceremony indoors. Thankfully, I had so much confidence in you and your coordination that I knew everything would work out just fine, and it did! We didn't have an ounce of worry on our day and were able to just enjoy ourselves!
Natalie did a wonderful job planning our destination wedding in Jamaica. She was there step by step through the planning process with fantastic original ideas, awesome creativity and such a great sense of design. I could have never done all of that on my own! When we got to Jamaica Natalie did an amazing job working with the resort staff coordinating everything and made it possible for me to spend time with my family and friends not worrying or stressing about anything in the days leading up to the wedding. As for my reception, WOW! I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. Natalie transformed the dining area at the resort into a ballroom you would see in Houston. Everything turned out beautiful and I am so grateful to have had Natalie help plan our special day.
I can’t say enough good things about Two Be Wed. From the moment I called about my wedding, Natalie Dawley was enthusiastic and eager to get the wedding planning started. She not only took my vision and made it happen, she took it to the next level! All of her recommendations and vendors were exceptional! My wedding turned out exactly as I had envisioned it. I couldn't have planned my wedding without Two Be Wed’s help. All my guests constantly tell me that our wedding was the BEST they have ever been to, they loved every detail! Thanks so much Two Be Wed for bringing my wedding vision to life!!
We have the pleasure and honor to work with the Two Be Wed Team occasionally in events that start like any other, but evolve into once in a lifetime wonderful memories. Their precision to even minute details, combined with their ingenuity and creativity, makes us enjoy their client's weddings in a manner that is joyful and captivating, which allows all vendors to be more efficient at the event due to their well organized agendas and assertive, yet friendly, communication skills.
I was so grateful to have Two Be Wed’s services in the planning and coordination of our wedding. It felt very special and unique to our preferences. The evening was exactly as we wanted: relaxed, fun, and yet expertly guided along. I also loved how i was able to have input into the things that really mattered to me and trust the team to do a fantastic job with the things that i didn't particularly have an opinion about. I was amazed also at the sheer beauty of the environment that they created. I felt extremely proud to invite my family and friends into that setting. The vendors that Two Be Wed recommended did a fantastic job and Natalie helped us to find the perfect matches for our budget. I highly recommend Two Be Wed. I have full confidence that they will do a beautiful, unique, and organized job for all of their clients.
Natalie, I sincerely appreciate all your and Danyett’s efforts and time in helping us to have such a beautiful event. Your knowledge, dedication, and patience made things much easier for us. Michelle and I both feel you went above and beyond your duties. On Michelle and Kha’s wedding day, you and Danyett perfectly took care of things from A to Z so we could completely enjoy the wedding. Thank you so much for being a part of one of their most unforgettable days. Also, you are such a wonderful person to work with. Your enthusiasm really energizes those around you. We certainly will refer your services to anyone getting married.
I absolutely LOVE working with Two Be Wed. They are so creative, organized, and work great in a team! Working with TBW is such a relief because they are so on top of it at an event I don’t have to be in charge of anything but the pictures! Working with Ashley was also amazing! She is super organized, creative and has an 'in' with all the best vendors! They are super professional and know everything about the business!
Natalie is a joy to work with. I've come to know Natalie and her growing family over the last three years as one of the prestige wedding planners in Texas. Super creative, organized, detail oriented, down to earth with many years of experience and always a pleasure to work with. As a photographer, I breathe a sigh of relief when I hear Two Be Wed is their planner as I know I'm in for some amazing planning and decor. Her clients always seem to be the nicest folks too which I think reflects her personality.
