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.

A Styled Shoot with Pat Robinson at Terrain at Styers

This shoot goes down in the books for us. As we were planning and designing for this shoot, we just let our vision guide it. It wasn’t guided by particular dictates, merely our dream of what could be. Working with a team of crazy-talented, super collaborative vendors resulted in visual magic — and a shoot worthy of being published on Green Wedding Shoes!

Pat Robinson slayed the photography with his masterful way of capturing the natural light. He perfectly captured the details and the entire mood of the day.

Jess and Paige from We Are Wildflowers jumped right in and crafted an amazing greenery backdrop on site. They had the killer idea to make sure the backdrop was mobile so it could be used as both the ceremony backdrop as well as the sweetheart cake table backdrop. This is the perfect example of choosing a wow-factor to splurge on and then getting creative about how to maximize the impact — we totally geek out over that kind of thinking. We love getting working with new vendors during shoots because it gives us great insight into their work ethic, style, and personality, which they had in spades!

Meg of Nutmeg Design ran with our love of patterns. For inspiration, we gave her a patterned fabric swatch that we later made napkins out of for the shoot. She hand painted the same pattern onto a tier of the cake, then adorned the cake with her amazing sugar flowers (which tied in elements from the pattern in 3D form).

Looking over these pictures brings us such joy and gets us excited for the creative possibilities that lie ahead!
