<< Learn More About the Gold Dust Girls here! >>

KATE - ASSOCIATE PLANNER Kate Haaf joined the Gold Dust team in 2016 as an Associate Wedding Planner; however, she has been planning weddings and events since 2010 when she fell in love with the event industry during her time at Texas Christian University.

Kate whole-heartedly believes every occasion in life is worth celebrating and strives to bring a unique and styled touch to every event. She has a talent for big picture planning with a detail-driven execution and thrives off the happiness and enjoyment of the guests.

While not planning weddings, you will find her designing tablescapes and styling events for her blog The Everyday Hostess and exploring Dallas with her husband.

She cannot wait to bring your vision to life and make your day one-of-a-kind!
rhianna - associate planner Rhianna Dempsey has always enjoyed entertaining friends and family, styling the perfect charcuterie board for a party, and getting the Christmas Tree looking like it's from a magazine. Weddings came as the natural "next step" because there just aren't enough decorative holidays in the year! Rhianna has quite the unconventional day job. She works as a commercial actress and print model, so you may end up seeing her face in some random places!

While not planning weddings, you'll find Rhianna off traveling the world with her husband. Their goal is to have visited 50 countries before age 40. So far they're at 20 in the past 5 years! Together they explore historical places, discover new and exciting foods, and learn as much as they can about the beautiful world we live in. They're firm believers that as long as you're with the one you love, anywhere can feel just like home.
Thomas - rental delivery We’ve known Thomas for years---we won’t say how many but we grew up going to school together. He always has a smile on his face, even when he’s moving a couch! In addition to his moving skills he is extremely handy, which makes a Gold Dust Girl super happy(and our husband’s even happier). If you’re renting from us you’ll get to meet this guy.

When he’s not working for us he is running his landscaping company, hanging with his adorable family and trying to pick up a game of softball. We are very fortunate to have Thomas on our team!
Maddie - social media manager Maddie Baldwin joined the Gold Dust team in 2017 as a social media intern. A few months later Maddie graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Digital Retailing and continued to grow in her role at Gold Dust Event Co. By day Maddie fulfills her logical side by managing a North Texas wedding venue and by night her creative side flourishes by creating social content. Maddie loves to keep the Gold Dust audience up on the latest wedding and event trends!

In her spare time you will most likely find Maddie at the dog park with her adorable corgi or trying out a new restaurant with her husband. Besides being a dog mom extraordinaire and huge foodie, Maddie also loves to bring her HGTV dreams to life with fun home projects!
