Meet the Founders


Over ten years of friendship and counting, through our own engagements and wedding preparations, together we have started on this new and exciting adventure creating Ivory Collective.

With over 15 years combined experience in event planning, we are passionate about creating personalized celebrations for our clients. From weddings, to an intimate dinner party, and anything in between, our hope is that every client we work with can enjoy not only their celebration, but the entire planning process.

Owner & Co-Founder

Danielle Dombroski

I fell in love with the wedding and events industry after becoming a COVID bride! Navigating through such a whirlwind of unexpected challenges only fueled my passion in wanting to help other brides perfect their unforgettable and timeless day from start to finish. With a type A personality and client-first approach, I understand just how  important it is to have someone you can trust lead you down this exciting journey!

I graduated from Loyola University of Maryland with a focus in communications and marketing and furthered my career by coming back to the city I love to complete my master’s degree in public communications at Drexel University. Although born and raised in New Jersey, I consider Philadelphia my second home and adore the people and places this city has shown me.

I’m now happily married to my husband John and currently reside in the charming suburbs of Pennsylvania. When I’m not planning your beautiful events, I love to spend time at The Jersey Shore with my family, designing and decorating our new townhome, and traveling to new destinations – wherever that may take me next!

Event planning and design have become my true passions through my own celebrations and collaborations with talented designers and vendors. My keen eye for detail and ability to turn my imagination into reality are qualities I take great pride in. Creating unforgettable celebrations for family, friends, and now our valued clients through Ivory Collective allows me to channel my creativity and bring beauty to life and create magical memories that will be treasured for a lifetime.

Upon earning my degree in public relations from Quinnipiac University, I entered the events industry where my dedication to personalization and meticulous planning led me to discover my true calling. Growing up in New Jersey provided me with close relationships and invaluable experiences that I draw upon to create meaningful moments for our clients. I strive for perfection in every detail.

Starting Ivory Collective alongside my best friend is a truly special journey for me. After the excitement of my own wedding and marrying my husband Kevin, I am thrilled to embark on the next chapter of our lives together.
