Danna Wolf came to Charleston as a computer programmer, but after welcoming her second daughter into the world, she felt called to leave the corporate world and dedicate her time to her little ones. When her job as full time mommy allowed, Danna began working part time in the wedding and event industry. During her time at home, Danna also served as a volunteer with the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem program and discovered a passion for serving underprivileged youth. When the opportunity came along to combine those two worlds, Danna jumped at the chance! In 2017, with all of her kids now in school, Danna took over as managing partner of Charleston Tuxedo and business manager/drape coordinator at our sister company Yoj Events. Danna resides in Charleston with her husband Corey and their three daughters, Carson, Delaney, and Hadley.
