Rustic DIY Wedding at Barn on Bridge :: Lori & Paul

Lori & Paul were such a badass couple! Our first meeting was via Skype and with their vintage tees, trendy glasses, and tattoos I totally felt like the nerdy kid in a cardigan. After chatting for all of 2 seconds I realized A) they were as cool as my first impression; and B) they were a totally chill couple that were going to be a blast to work with.

We work with couples no matter where they’re located or planning their event, which is why we love Skype! Planning from a distance can cause a lot of stress for couples — on top of planning a wedding for the first time, hey, let’s do it long distance! So the first thing we did with Lori & Paul was firm up a schedule of communication.

Both Lori & Paul were very hands-on throughout the process and they crafted, created, and constructed many of the detailed elements of their big day. Lori, a cake designer, actually made the cake with such incredible sugar flowers.

The groom spent his morning at The Shave Bar, totally manly way to spend your morning!

Words from the groom: Sarah touched based throughout our entire engagement with regular calls and Skype sessions to make sure that we were on the right track and that everything was being planned in a timely manner in able to make the whole wedding a success. She provided us with several worksheets to track our progress and stay organized — something that is very hard to do when planning a wedding. On the day of the wedding, Sarah (and company!) made the entire day stress free (aside from the typical stress and anxiety of actually getting married). We didn't have to worry about a single thing — she took over communication with all of our vendors, and the event staff at the venue. I can wholeheartedly say that without Sarah's help, our wedding wouldn't have been as much of a success. The level of professionalism displayed by Sarah and her staff was absolutely incredible, and I couldn't have imagined the day without her! We highly recommend working with Heart & Dash. Also, aside from being incredibly professional, everyone at Heart & Dash is super friendly and helped calm my nerves on the day of — I can't thank them enough!
