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.

Colorful Delaware County Wedding at Tyler Arboretum

Oh Sharon & Josh!! What a fun couple who constantly had us laughing (which is our favorite thing to do)!! I (Sarah) knew Sharon from being in the industry. She’s an amazing brand designer who embraces the unique and doesn’t shy away from color.

With her amazing branding and graphic design background Sharon was on top of all things design related, but she was struggling with how to bring it all together. Why? Because hey, she hasn’t planned a wedding before. Our Heart & Dash couples often acknowledge that wedding planning can evolve into a full-time job if you’re unsure of what to do. Relying on a professional whose actual job it is to plan weddings can help alleviate a lot of the workload. Then, when wedding planning becomes enjoyable instead of an item of stress it allows you to enjoy your time with the one you love instead of wanting to murder them.

“We approached Heart & Dash to help us plan and oversee our wedding and we couldn’t have been more thankful for them and what they gave us. We had someone in our corner for the entire process.” -- Sharon & Josh

The color palette of S&J’s wedding was stunning- brining in bold colors of poppy, navy, and orange that couples sometimes tend to shy away from. Our best guess as to why is that because a lot of the inspiration in wedding-land tends to showcase neutrals. Which, if that’s what you REALLY love,  that’s totally ok! Just don’t let what Pinterest tells you is “in” dictate your color choices - If you love color as much as S&J, use it!

When you’re planning a wedding in the northeast, fingers are always crossed for good weather. Thankfully mother nature delivered, and it was a perfect sunny June day and S&J’s love for one another poured out of them the entire time. It’s always such a pleasure to be able to witness these amazing moments in our client’s lives...it’s why we do what we do!  

“I can’t thank them enough for the gift they gave us that we’ll remember forever. They were the best money we spent that day and I’d spend it over and over again.” -- Sharon & Josh

Wedding at Bed & Breakfast in West Chester

Pennsylvania Wedding with Thoughtful DIY Elements

The main focus for Lauren & David’s wedding day was community. They have an amazing community of support in their friends and family and wanted to make sure that this element was included in their wedding.

Their ceremony was hosted at Lauren’s parent’s house in West Chester, PA. The setting was beautiful to begin with, but the fact that Lauren grew up there made her starting this new chapter of her life in the same spot all the more impactful and believe me, it had an impact on everyone!  When she walked out of the house on the way to the ceremony, we had to cut through the woods on a path that as a child she would walk on to get to the neighbors house. She got ready in her childhood bedroom with old posters on the wall. It is details like that you can’t fabricate. Sometimes the details that you don’t pay for are the ones that make the biggest mark on your day.

After the ceremony everyone headed into West Chester to the lovely Victorian Bed & Breakfast, Faunbrook. With lots of cute little nooks and crannies the space felt so homey which was a perfect accompaniment to their family focused day. The space felt like an extension of the family’s home.

The mix of friends and family coming together made the day so special, but the couple really made it their own with small touches spread throughout the day. Another great example is that the couple designed their own invitations, and loved their envelope liner so much that they asked the baker to replicate it on a cake!

Lauren & David were complete sweethearts who were looking for an experienced planner to assist with bringing their vision to life and executing their big day!
