A Jazz Lounge Inspired Wedding at Morris House Hotel

Morris House Hotel Jazz Lounge Inspired Wedding with Wedding Planner Heart & Dash and Brittney Raine Photography

Jenni & Greg approached Heart & Dash to assist them with Planning & Event Management for their wedding. As two busy professionals with full schedules and minimal wedding experience they were seeking an experienced pro to aide them with vendor selection, budgeting, venue selection, design guidance, and bringing their ideas to fruition.

At our first meeting with J&G I asked them “if you could pick the perfect date night, what would it be?”. Their response was, “relaxing at a jazz lounge, listening to great music and being in the moment”. When I asked them what they thought about creating that atmosphere for their wedding they were surprised. They didn’t think “you could do that”. Why not? If your wedding day is in fact YOUR day, why can’t it feel the way you want it to? That is the driving force for us when designing and planning weddings for our clients.

Philadelphia Spring Wedding at Horticultural Center

Emily and Michael were good friends throughout college and they reconnected a couple of years after they graduated. When he proposed, she couldn’t believe it and kept asking “are you serious? Are you serious?!” Yep, he certainly was! And their wedding captured their bright personalities beautifully.

Though she couldn't wait to be married, Emily’s next thought was, "Ugh, I don’t want to plan a wedding!" So she did something I encourage every couple to do. Instead of starting out with a massive to-do list, she jotted down her thoughts on how they wanted their wedding to feel. I love that she still has that piece of paper and that when they walked into their reception, they felt exactly the way they wanted it to feel from the beginning.

Emily wanted shades of purple, so that’s just what they got — from the linens, to the amazing flowers from Love n’ Fresh, to the DIY ribbon wall behind the head table. Emily's father and brother crafted the awesome escort card display and the table numbers. Props to the guys — gotta love handy men!

The couple chose Sharyn Frenkel as their photographer because they loved the way she captured those candid moments. They wanted to remember a day of laughter, joy, and maybe even a few happy tears.

Emily & Michael — thank you for choosing us to guide you through your planning process! Looking at your wedding pictures still makes me smile because of the love you have for one another and the joy you take in being with each other!
