SABRINA CADINI – Founder & Creative Director

sabrina cadini la dolce idea weddings events planning management corporate

I was born and raised in Italy and after a fun career in modeling and as a TV announcer I was introduced to the world of event and wedding design / planning.

When I moved to the United States with my husband and our son I managed events on a larger scale for medical conferences all over North America as a tour operator and meeting planner. However, weddings and special events were always my biggest passion and La Dolce Idea Weddings & Soirees was born. Since then I designed and planned celebrations for wonderful clients that I will never forget, I won industry awards for my professionalism and my work was published on prestigious publications thanks to my creativity and design skills.
People call me “the healthy planner” because I am always very careful about eating healthy foods; I strongly believe in a mind+body connection and if you eat healthy you will feel better and be more productive – but sometimes I cheat when I’m around chocolate!
Each wedding or event is different and it reflects the couple’s personality or the client’s objectives; I am committed to provide each of you a unique and tailored approach based on your expectations and needs.
Let’s start working together – CONTACT ME today!


It is not about what I do (design, plan and coordinate events) or how I do it. You can find many event designers and planners like me: we all provide pretty much the same services based on different levels of knowledge and experience.
It is why I do it: I am incurably passionate about creating a memorable experience that tells everything about you and the love of your life. When I speak with my clients at our first consultation and they tell me about their vision, I am already putting together details, colors, and emotions that will make the most fun and exciting celebration. After all the planning, when I bring my wedding couples to peek inside the ballroom right before the reception starts and they hug me with a huge smile on their faces and thank me for the amazing job, this is why I do what I love to do. Your wedding day will fly by in a second but you will have great memories whether it is a picture wall that we installed at the cocktail area, a specialty linen that we placed on your sweetheart table, or an interactive caramel apple station that your guests will be raving about.
It’s all about that single moment that you live in and you will cherish for the rest of your life. I believe weddings are too important to be treated just like “a special event”: your wedding is THE most special event in your life and I will take care of it as such. I look forward to working with you on your most special day!
