You talk, we listen and we will uncover your vision to create a unique and one of a kind event.

Dorothy Mitchell, a certified wedding and event planner, is the founder and CEO of BigDay Occasions. She received a B.A. in Liberal Arts from LIU/Southampton College in Southampton, N.Y. It was during her freshman year in college, while working on a committee to plan campus social events, that her passion for event planning was born. Her vision and ability for planning out events were so strong that she became the committee president at the start of her Sophomore year. As her reputation for planning such great events grew, the ticket-buyers went beyond the students to families and friends from outside the college community. Dorothy continued to plan events as committee president until the end of her senior year.

After college, her passion for event planning emerged at work and she soon found herself being asked to plan social events at work for her co-workers. In addition, she started planning her family functions, becoming responsible for planning many of the family gatherings. It was soon, thereafter, that Dorothy Mitchell decided to pursue her passion of event planning and launch BigDay Occasions.
