Creative mastermind behind wedding concierge firm addresses lack of attention given to men of color in wedding and events industry, using a deep passion to expose people to “the celebration of love.”
Houston, Texas – December 23, 2015 – Darryl Wilson, Jr., the creative mastermind behind Houston-based D’Concierge Wedding Planning and honoree of the Black Enterprise Magazine’s BE Modern Man accolade, is poised to become quite the formidable tour de force on the burgeoning bridal services circuit, what with his plethora of wedding planning experience and renowned meticulous attention to detail.
As an accomplishment he is particularly proud of, Wilson has been featured in Black Enterprise Magazine as one of the publication’s BE Modern Man – which involves an integrative program that honors the essence, image and accomplishments of today’s men of color – as well as in MunaLuchi Bridal Magazine, the leading multicultural wedding publication catering to women of color.
“Ever since I planned my mother’s wedding to my stepfather 15 years ago, my life goal has become to change the dynamics of the wedding industry by planning one love story at a time,” says Wilson.
“Brides don’t just hire me to plan their weddings…I become a confidant, a fixer and, most importantly, a friend. Inherently, because of the lack of attention given to men of color in the wedding and events industry, I felt a deep drive to use my platform to expose people from all over the world to the ‘celebration of love;’ indeed, I am invigorated when couples of color my own age come into my office and both become involved in planning their special day. These moments aren’t celebrated by mainstream media, and this is why I’ve partnered with MunaLuchi Bridal, one of the foremost publications covering ethnic weddings, as their Global Brand Ambassador.”
Further cementing Wilson’s relentless dedication to becoming a formidable tour de force on the bridal/wedding circuit across the U.S., D’Concierge boasts offices in both Houston and Los Angeles, two of America’s most recognized, thriving metropolises. He has also joined forces with Diann Valentine, a wedding reality TV personality, becoming the Global Marketing Director for Diann Valentine Living Well and Wedding Producer for Diann Valentine Living Brides.
“It is important that this industry is showcased because my profession allows us to spotlight our brothers and sisters celebrating one of the most important days of their lives,” concludes Wilson. “The world needs to see beautiful people of color join as one in the most luxurious settings created by ‘The Wedding Concierge.’ I am blessed to be part of an industry that honors and celebrates love every day, and I revel in my inspiration bolstered by opportunities and experiences.”
In looking to the future, Wilson and D’Concierge envision planning life celebrations in London, Paris and Barcelona.
