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.
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!
