Danielle DeBoe Harper takes on weddings

Photo by Sarah Sloboda Photography
Although every bride wants the wedding she dreamed of as a child, planning the dream wedding isn’t always a fairy tale.

 Danielle DeBoe Harper is here to help.

She recently launched a new business, Weddings & Parties by Room Service that we wrote about in our January Elegant Wedding package, with her business partner, Jennie Doran to meet the needs of brides-to-be.

 Her business will be a vendor at the 2nd annual Boutique Bridal Bazaar from noon to 4 p.m. on Jan. 20 at smARTspace inside 78th Street Studios. The bazaar, hosted by Cleveland bridal boutique Something White, is a way for Northeast Ohio brides to find wedding inspiration by connecting with unique, local bridal vendors, ranging in focus from fashion to cuisine. Tickets are available on  the event's website for $5 in advance or $10 on the day of the event.

Harper created Room Service, a gift and clothing boutique now located in Ohio City, nearly six years ago, opened the now shuttered Dredgers Union on East Fourth Street, and recently started Weddings & Parties as a way to return to her roots.

 “When I opened Room Service, I was a hyper-visual person,” Harper says. “People would like the environment and ask if we did weddings.”

 Initially a lack of time and staff prevented her from venturing into wedding planning, but eventually “life intervened and opened up the time,” she says.

 Planning her 2012 wedding gave Harper a new perspective on the needs of brides-to-be. She stresses there is no formula to creating the perfect wedding, and being a bride taught her to ask the right questions in the planning phase.

 Last year, Harper attended the bazaar as a would-be bride. This year, she is excited to participate as a vendor.

 “We have a booth set up, and we’re excited about the look of it,” Harper says.  Expect to see handmade favors and an artistic display from the visual-minded entrepreneur.

“We’re trying to show the breadth of creativity that we can bring to somebody’s wedding,” she says.

Pictures derived from the Greek photos- for "light" and -graphos for "drawing" is the art, science, and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film, or electronically by means of an image sensor. Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure. The result in an electronic image sensor is an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing. printing coupon
