Exquisite Events by Meeka and team are saddened to report the untimely death of our beloved Dynale “Diggs” Martin; Husband of President/CEO and Founder of Exquisite Events by Meeka— Tomeka Martin. Many of you have met Dynale at events assisting with production setup and take down. He was a critical member of the back end team. Dynale would work for hours with the glue gun; his attention to detail made him a master of rhinestone manipulation. If there was a rhinestones component at your event, perhaps in flowers, centerpieces or on backdrops more than likely it was the work of Dynale.There are children across Connecticut that do not know what it feels like to be celebrated, loved, special and adored. Although every child is special, We want to create special memories that last a lifetime for 1 special child every year...your child or nominee could be next!!
Dynale passed suddenly on Monday, January 26, 2015. He was laid to rest on February 4, 2015 like the young prince he is. We are all still devastated by his loss. We will miss our beloved Dynale.
At that time, Tomeka decided to close the business effective IMMEDIATELY and focus her attention on their two young boys Jeremy and Trey.
As of May 2016 - Exquisite Events by Meeka has reopened!
While she will never fill his shoes, the time she spent with her event planning business will be better spent with her young children. You can expect more events in the future of the Martin Family. Dynale’s legacy will live on through the 2nd annual Diggs Classic in his honor (June 2015), basketball scholarship fundraisers for inner city youth, fundraising for the American Kidney Foundation and much more.
The Charity Bachelor Auction has also been cancelled. Ticket holders will receive a personalized communication from a member of the team with the option of having a full cash refund or authorization to pass their donation on to the American Cancer Association in their name.
*Communication has been sent to all clients with upcoming events to discuss full refund. If you have not heard from a member of the team, please email [email protected] The Park Road location will be closed by the end of February.
Tomeka thanks each of you for your support and dedication to her business. She will cherish your friendships forever.
